Haven't a great deal to update about, just on my way to bed.

This is actually a plea... I'm going on a trip and I need books to read while tripping. Shall not define the term "tripping" as I refuse to knock out any possibilities/opportunities. haha, right.

anyway, books. your favorites, ones that you would like to read, things that I should read. propaganda is encouraged.

Subject:Months
Time:5:11 pm.
Mood: exhausted.
So, it's been months. Literally, months, but I just took my Human Anatomy test on the cardiovascular system (which went well) and I actually have a little down time. First time in... well, months. Hopefully I did well on this test because it pretty much determines my grade. 40%. That's a lot. On Mondays I translate at a free spanish clinic downtown, which is pretty fun, but there were hardly any patients this monday because of halloween. The 3 med students working and I sat around in the back and talked. It basically made me want to cry because I feel like people keep telling me how I can't get into medical school, how no one can get into medical school, how the standards are just ridiculous. WTF. I just want to practice medicine. Is that too much to ask? I'm smart, I'm motivated, I'm not going to leave a pair of tongs inside of someone. give me a break!

This weekend I have to go to Tennessee for a crew regatta. fuck. I don't want to go. There's a book signing I want to go to in Charlotte tomorrow, and I just want to sleep. The good news is that I registered for classes yesterday. Next semester I will be taking:

Cell Bio
Organic Chem
Philosophy
EMT class
Lifestyles in Health/some worthless gym class I won't attend.

***********The best part is that I have no classes on Friday. SCORE!!**********



In other news - I just heard on CNN that it is legal to have small amounts of marijuana in Denver... wtf. is this true? amazing.

Time:3:32 pm.
i just wrote a two page entry on a conversation my mother and i had about global warming over lunch and i lost it... now i'm too emotionally drained to re-write. Just know that I had some really eloquent sentences about how awful it is that our government has the power to change the world and instead they just shit on it.

It makes me uncomfortable and sad. I want to go outside and sit in Tryon, but it's raining. I think I'll just curl up with my dogs and go to the gym later.

Subject:tonight
Time:3:53 am.
tonight i sat under an umbrella on the roof of my dormatory. It's raining outide. Pouring, in fact. about 10,000x the droplet size of Portland rain at 5x the intensity. Lightening was all about the sky, and we couldn't help but get bundled in the rags and towels that are the clothing of college students and observe the heavenly spectacle. Of course, in typical collegiate style, we treated ourselves to a few Sprites and Spirits while observing. Quite memorable.

My room is still shaking with the rumble of distant thunder. wooooo. i love storms!

PS - over the break my crew workout is to run 6 miles a day, do 175 sit-ups, and one hour on the rowing machine everyday. Jigga what? This foo' don't think so.

You Are a Liberal Republican



When you tell people that you're Republican, they rarely believe you.

That's because you're socially liberal - likely pro-choice and pro-gay rights.

You're also not so afraid of big goverment, as long as it benefits people and not politicians.

You are the most likely of any Republican type to swing over to the Democrat side sometimes.

currently listening to Enloqueceme (you drive me crazy). Good times with OV7 and Don Miguel, and by good times I mean they weren't good times at all. But the song is good, and all you spanish kids need to download it (cough*marjan*cough).

It is a sad day in the wide world of Lake Oswego Journalism...

Alandra Johnson (previously Huchins... sad that someone married her) is now the assistant editor of the Review.

I wonder if we exposed her for the fraudulant, lazy jounalist she is that she would not have such power of our beloved town's periodical...
It just pisses me off that someone who had other people write her articles for her (cough... me and everyone else ever in PAS... cough) has been rewarded for her high quality jounalism.


Irony.

Time:12:33 pm.
mmm. Good lunch today, good everything today. Went to boring math class, aka 50 minutes of me wanting to kill myself, but then found out I'm a finalist for this leadership program I applied for on campus, which is cool. Yesterday in Innuendo all we did was sing Cry Me a River for like an hour and a half... so awesome. If anyone knows how, could someone tell me how I can post audio clips online?

EXACTLY 2 WEEKS UNTIL I COME HOME! 9 DAYS TIL MY BIRTHDAY!

crap, i just want to get on a plane right now. I miss you, portland. and you, too, lake oswego.
and even you, West Linn.... oh, but not Beaverton. I will always hate you, Beaverton. Trash.

Snowing up north, eh?
Well, I'm still chilling in flip-flops and t-shirts. It's nice, although I could really do with a romp in the snow...
but what am I doing? There are precious OC episodes that require my attention.

Time:7:05 pm.
No more! No more! I've been watching the OC for hours. HOURS I TELL YOU! I'm sick with a cold, skipped my afternoon classes, and sat in front of the DVD player. My friend David down the hall bought the first season last week, and my hall has ceased all social and scholastic activity.

Save me!

What? Ryan is going to hook up with Seth's grandpa's girlfriend? AHH!!

Subject:Some Thoughts
Time:5:11 pm.
Mood: busy.
I've never read anything by Toni Morrison, but I'd just like to note that she's a really talented writer. Currently reading Sula, and must have Beloved read by Friday... Although I don't even know why I'm reading. If Bush wins tonight, my teacher has canceled class for Wednesday. He said that he will be so upset and angry that there is no way he can effectively lead class. Haha.

I've been trying to do work all day, but I keep getting caught up watching the election/napping. Dammit! I have so much to do... no more CNN, no more reading on my bed.

In other news - I think I'm already ready to live in an apartment. I want carpet, a fullsize bed, a kitchen, and a couch. Oh, and a car. This cinderblock cubicle called a dorm room is somewhat lacking in those respects. Actually I think I just have this vision of myself living in an apartment in the Pearl District that has yet to come to fruition. One day...


PS - Loud rap music coming from neighbor not appreciated. I think I'm going to go kick some ass.

Time:11:02 pm.
Mood: calm.
So right now I'm in a really good mood. I got a solo in a song today in Innuendo practice. In Peter Gabriel's "In the House of Stone and Light." I got a 100% on my math quiz (although I think I still have a C). I worked out really hard today. AND I just had a lot of hummus that my mom bought me from Whole Foods. Oh, and I talked to a Denver friend of mine that I hadn't talked to in about 7 years.... thank you facebook.

This weekend was parents weekend, and it could not have come at a better time. I was so happy to see my parents. They know me so well/love me, and it was really apparent. It made me feel good, and it was so nice to have people around that understand how I feel without me having to tell them or whatnot. Plus, I'm not going to lie, it's great to get target/groceries/clothing/amenities for nothing. I ain't complainin.

Anyway, I've really been trying to change how I view life... mainly in terms of how much time I allow myself to think about the future. A few days ago I found myself thinking about getting into medschool, researching it online, and talking to older premed students about it all the time. I started feeling like my grades and my activities were inadequate, and basically I was spiraling into depression - that I wasn't going to achieve the very goal I came out here to achieve (become a doctor).
In English, we've been discussing characters that do not "make it" or have a successful life because they do not accept either their past or their future. People seem to either try to work all their lives to cover for some shortcoming in their past or they work all their lives towards an end that is never really gotten. I am more of the latter type. Therefore, I'm taking action!

Also, I really do miss home. I was really happy the other day because for some reason or another it dawned on me that I had made some really worthwhile friends here... but seeing my parents, feeling that familiarity, I just want to be home. Dorothy had it right. There is no place like home, even if other places are still worth visiting. I suppose I'm just glad I have yall.

PS - I think I'm becoming less preppy by the day.

Subject:Tunneling
Time:11:38 pm.
little known fact about Wake Forest:

Wake Forest has the second largest underground network of tunnels in the continental united states. I'm not sure what their original purpose was, but they are now "off limits." It was actually one of the big selling points to having the presidential debates here in years past, because the President could, should the situation arise, be spirited away via secret lairs in the event of an emergency/security concern. Interesting, no?

It's also an honor code violation to go into them... which means suspension if you're caught. This of course means that I will soon be venturing into these supposed tunnels - mission impossible style. will report back when assignment is completed. There's an enterance below my dorm building. muahaha.
