Young Urban Professionals

I woke up at 5:45 a.m., because I had a bio final at 8 a.m. and I'm VERY, VERY paranoid about missing tests by sleeping through them. Anyway, it was a really cold morning today, so I decided when I left the house at 7 a.m. that I had time to get coffee. I didn't want to go all the way down to South Side, to get cheaper coffee, so I went to the Starbucks right by my apartment. Then I proceeded to pay $2.75 for a (really short) tall glass of Holiday Peppermint Mocha. It was like 8 oz. big. As I walked out, bitter about having wasted so much money, I took a sip of the coffee, and realized it was all worth it.

Worst Semester, in Life

This has been my worst academic performance ever. And by ever, I mean EVER. I don't know how it happened. But it did. I've never done this bad in school. Oh well. Not going to cry over spilled milk. I just need to really concentrate on doing better next semester.

Gum Chewing Piece Of Shit!

I'm feeling sick. Today's been a long day. And then the worst thing happens: I get to ResComp and I notice a piece of gum sticking on the back of my backpack. A big-ass wad. I was so mad!!! I literally was fuming after that for the better part of the day. If I ever see another ass clown spit gum out in Wheeler Auditorium (where my backpack was tainted by the aforementioned gum), I swear I will strangle them and then spit out gum on their dead body.

Get Down Tonight (With An Earthworm)

Bio lab final is in less than 24 hours. Anyone want to know about how cockroaches piss? How about how rats shit? No? Well, I know you want to know about how earthworms get off? STILL NO? Why not? I mean, if I need to know all this for a legitimate biology exam, I would think that this is knowledge that would in some way help me sometime in life. But that's where you are wrong: if this stuff actually mattered, why would it be part of the curriculum of a pre-med class? That would defeat the entire purpose of a shameless weeder classes where the only intent of the designers of the class is to create a very nice bell curve (i.e., normal distribution) of grades, with few As and few Fs, so the med schools know who the really talented students are—no doubt their knowledge of the deviant sexual practices of members of the Annelida phylum will help them diagnose brain tumors in their future, illustrious careers.

EE 40 is the Worst!

I need to print out the revised version of my EE 40 Lecture #20 notes again, because, well, that class sucks and half the lecture notes are wrong. Digressing from the main point, let me say that I completed all my homework for last week using Lecture #22 notes, only to find out a few hours later that everything in Lecture #22 was just wrong and that in Lecture #24 the professor said, and I quote: We are re-doing propagation delay today. Feel free to forget everything from last time!

For some reason, this quote just came into my head while reading Bio at the library, so I thought I would share.

Pondering the Impossible

It rained again today. I had to go and finish up my time sheet at work. Plus I had a CS review session. My umbrella was jacked up. I bought a new one, paying $12 at the Cal Student Store, a.k.a., Exploitation Central. Getting to the Student Store however, I got rained on. My hair got wet. It had gel in it. That got me thinking, why don't they make gel waterproof, because anytime anyone goes out in the rain, it will just leak down their face and burn their eyes (unless of course thousands of innocent animals had to have that happen to them, so humans wouldn't).
