My Cape: SBW

I feel:: crappy

It's been a while since I updated. I haven't had the urge to get on my computer for several days. School started last week and I'm already busy with studying. I had my first test, a pop quiz, in Developmental Psychology today. It wasn't hard. It was over the material that we were supposed to have read for today. It would have been easier for me if I had read a little farther into the chapter. Dr. Knabe had two days marked on the syllabus for talking about the methods of studying children. I read about half of the chapter, but I guess I didn't read far enough. Oh well. I'm enjoying Astronomy. That's a huge surprise for me. I thought that I was going to hate it. Everyone I've talked to said that it is really hard. My professor, Dr. Grauer, is super nice and he's really good about helping out and answering questions. I started going to a new church. Second Baptist in downtown Little Rock. I really like it there. Everyone is really nice and sincere. No offense to Baptists, but one doesn't usually get that from a Baptist church. I was pleasantly surprised. The only class I'm wondering about is Algebra and a little about my Spanish class. More Algebra though. I was trying to do my homework earlier on my TI-83 calculator and I couldn't figure out how to make it do x cubed and x to the fourth power and higher. x squared is easy because there's a little button that says "x squared". I got frustrated and quit. I don't really know if I'm doing it right either. I guess I'll find out tomorrow night in class. I feel sort of sick today. I'm lethargic and I feel like I'm running a fever, but I took my temp like 3 times since I've been home and the first time it was 98.1 and the second time, 97.3, the third time it was 98. I don't know why it's low, but I'm not having chills. I just feel shitty. I know this is a super boring entry, but I'm Super Boring Woman today. I should have a shirt made with a big SBW on it.


New Year's Eve

I feel:: crazy

I didn't go anywhere this year. I stayed home and watched them count down to the New Year on Univision, MTV, and Dick Clark's Rockin' New Year on ABC. Why is it that male Latin singers have so much make up put on their faces for television? I know they need some, but the guy I saw... good grief. He had bigger lips than Mick Jagger and that's saying a lot. I just have one thing to say about that: STEP AWAY FROM THE PURPLE LIP GLOSS!

The next door neighbors, Quade and his wife, had some company and they were outside at the new year shooting off fireworks. Yay for living in the boonies where people can start fires at will and not be arrested. They were nice though and wished us a happy New Year. My friend Sally came over with her Chinese food, which by the way, was like the only restaurant open around where she lives in North Little Rock. She bought that food and then drove 30 minutes here to eat it. ???? My dad came home at a little before 12:00 so we all were here when the old year passed into the new one. I haven't been to sleep yet. I've become addicted to my Playstation 2 and I have been playing Whiplash and Pacman World 2 since 1:00am. Yes, I know that's weird and I know that it's slightly obsessive behavior, but I was enjoying myself and it kept me occupied as I have some things on my mind. The funny thing is, it's 8:34am right now and I'm not in the least bit sleepy. I should be. I should be falling over right now.

I hope everyone had a happy New Year's celebration, whatever it was. And I hope we all have a better year this year than last year. I'm not making any New Year's Resolutions because I never keep them so that's just self defeating and I can't beat myself up any more than I already do. Kindness is what I'm looking for.
