In twelve hours, I will be submitting myself to the inevitable doom that is my astronomy final.  In THIS intimidating building, no less.  *flails arms wildly and uncontrollably*  I went to a two-hour review session this evening, zoned out about a half-dozen times, and am generally crossing my fingers, because I really... really... really... don't want to try to study right now.  FAIL.  I calculated that I only need an eighty percent on the final to get an even ninety percent in the class, which would be more encouraging if I hadn't barely scraped up an eighty-four on the last midterm, which I did study for.


On a much more awesome note, let's give a great, big, not-studying Tierfal welcome to orual_dreaming, who is my new LJ pal, and who ships everybody and their mother with everybody else and their mother, and who does it extraordinarily well. YAAAAYYY.

And now the wonders of what I did today.

If you really thought there was going to be anything legitimately wonderful... I'm afraid you've been sorely deceived.  And/or have not come to realize how incredibly frivolous the vast majority of my LJ posts tend to be.

- got up (at TEN IN THE MORNING -- omg so early)
- went and gave my English Major request dealio to the English undergraduate adviser, who I swear told me last time that I needed an official transcript only to say this time that I hadn't and didn't, after I'd spent the eight bucks... But once it's processed, I'll be an English major, WHEE!
- spent as many meal points as possible, since they expire at the end of the semester, and really all I've got left to spend them on is taking my stepdad to lunch tomorrow
- managed to sell two forty-dollar books for about fifteen dollars each
- used some of that money to buy myself my first university-affiliated shirt... oh, the patriotism.  Really, though, I'm already paying them to come here and have them teach me things, and they want me to wear their logo, too?  Really. ...no, I'm exaggerating.  I think.
- went down to the leasing office with prospective roommates, beleaguered leasing office employees with tiny questions, and made a list of things we'll need next year and who might bring them
- acquired a headache
- went to that review session
- ate a sandwich.  And chocolate.  Lots of chocolate.  Too much chocolate.  Or what would be too much chocolate, if there were such a thing.
- posted to my LJ instead of studying for the Final O' Doom

My heavens, what a dreadfully exciting day.

I am eagerly anticipating going home tomorrow, at which point I will no longer have to procrastinate on a variety of school assignments, and instead will procrastinate on a variety of personal literature-related projects.  It will be wonderful.  And I am going to sleep so goddamn much that I'll probably make a permanent indentation in my mattress.  Yeeeeessssss.

I is going to my daddy's house this weekend.  I'll get to see my half-brothers and my kitties.  Oh, yeah, and those parent-type people.

This is my brother's kitty:

My kitty isn't as friendly or photogenic as his kitty, but... AWW A KITTY.

And I would show you pictures of my half-brothers, except that, at three and five, they've probably changed so much since I last saw them in September, let alone since the last time I took pictures of them, that it would be just about pointless. :P

I wonder if my duddykins has emerged from the Stone Age and set up wireless internet yet.  The internet is crucially important to my survival.


I needz go study nao, lolz.

Holy crap, lookit all those tags. :O

Your brother's kitty looks like my brother's kitty! But Midnight's not very friendly. She yowls when you pick her up.

You have officially reminded me to go to the bookstore. I almost forgot about that! Oopsies.

I have a school shirt. It's really cute though. All dark blue and fitted and flowered. :)

Good luck with your test of doom! And congrats on officially joining the fine institution of English Majors!

My brother and my own cat are engaged in a years' long deathmatch. My bets are on the cat. :P

Selling books back always kind of feels like selling back everything you learned... for a quarter of the price at which you purchased it. XD

YAY English majors! :D

I just sold three or four books for the grand total of $8.50. They offered $1, $2.75, and $4 for the others. Sadly, the $4 one was originally $40.

Eeew, you got particularly egregiously ripped-off. My sympathies and apologies. o_o

Don't I know it. I'm gonna go the Amazon route!

Hee, I was trying to think of how to summarize the wondrous things you do, and... yeah. I'm glad you like it! :P

Yay! And I considered minoring in history before I realized how much additional work that would be. Laziness tends to win out. XD

I love Kitties! They are soooo cute.

I love the lolcat speech, it always makes me laugh.

Hope you do well on your final, makes me glad that I don't have finals for my web classes.

Kitties rule. :D

Haha, random bouts of lolcat-y things seem to afflict my speech and writing...

Finals are the worst ever. :P But now they're done!!
