i'm at a loss for words here

so this semester has been off to a good start, and i mean that dripping with sarcasm. i was supposed to have my first class yesterday, but i went to meet up with the professor beforehand to ask him if he thought i could take the class although i didn't meet one of the prerequisites. and oh. my. god. world class jerk. seriously, he was the rudest person i have met in the longest of long times, and all i can say is thank god i don't have to deal with him for the rest if the semester. (because, yes, in the midst of being a jerk he told me that i obviously couldn't take his class.) and then tonight i have the class that i added instead of the jerk's class which i'm not very excited about. it's another legal/ethics class and i've already done so many of these (but none of them the same so i can't even recycle work or sleep through it. i had the ethics in accounting, the legal in intrusion detection, the ethics in marketing, ethics in global markets, etc.). i remember that once upon a time i used to like school. i really did. i'm not sure where all my excitement for learning went, but i hope i find at least a little as this semester goes on.

but enough about school. (i wrote that sentence ten minutes ago and can think of nothing else to write about. i lead a pathetic existence.) 

oh, last night i had a dream that i was voldemort's driver? it was a really weird dream. and he had a creepy cat that had its own wand. being voldemort's driver is stressful because you're always worried that he's going to kill you. i have no idea what my subconscious is doing, but i think it must be high. even my stress-induced quasi-nightmares i had the night before about school and qual exams were pretty weird.

  1. I'd tell you to hang in there, because it gets better, but I didn't follow my own advice...so... lol. But seriously. Hang in there. It doesn't get better if you quit. ;)

  2. i hung in there for undergrad and master's, but i feel like my hands are starting to slip now and there's no real reason to keep hanging on for the phd. i guess i'm just really unmotivated. my tuesday class seems pretty good, though, so i guess that'll get me through another semester.

      when i read my hands are starting to slip now...i got a mental image of isa, in the girls locker room, everyone gathered around waiting their turn while one person does the pull ups or the up and hold thingy. and you feel your hands slipping and the pain of the calluses forming. :D

      i agree with carrie... as that dude in almost all the adam sandler movies says "yooo can dooo it!" :P (i originally wrote ben stiller then i realized for some reason i ALWAYS confuse ben still and adam sandler i have no idea why.)

    3. omg i confuse them too! i think because i kind of learned about them at the same time and they're both generally stupid? but i also used to confuse tom hanks and tom cruise, so maybe i just have issues.
