#2703 – one more day

oh boy oh boy! the interview with myself and ocarina about radio krud goes up on the tofu hut tomorrow (or when it next updates) ^__^ i’m tickled pink and so excited that it’s going to be published, hehe ^_^ (speaking of the ol’ musicblog, meaghan, did you get my email about the pictures for dave? ^_^;)… i should probably make a post over there so it’ll have something fresh up for the review. i’ve got a recommendation that i can take a look at and post about, hmm…

went to classes today, remembered last night that i had to turn in my first homework assignment for my networks and internets class, so i got that done some at home before going up to campus. dropped off my letter of credit to have work pay for school (they don’t pay for school “fees” and i calculated the amount to have them pay wrong, so i’m having to pay out of pocket $822 this semester when it should be about a third of that ^^; oops…). finished my homework before class, and from the sound of what the professor said about some of the problems and from what i heard a guy behind me say about his, i think i did pretty well.

bought windows xp for my copy of virtual pc (dad needs to be able to run wordperfect on the imac at home for when he’s telecommuting to work – don’t know if or how well it’ll work on there though, haha) from the school bookstore, and hung out with bruno_boy and mytinyworld at lunch and talked about my “zany antics”.

went to psychology class, that only took an hour. caught a guy blatantly cheating in the back on my way out (skwirly and apb_don saw him too) – that reminds me, i need to email the professor about that…

on the way back home i was cruising in the mini cooper with the sunroof cracked open, drivers’ side window down, arm out the window, heater on mild, heated seat on full, music blasting out the stereo… i was completely comfortable. 😀

i probably could have kept going down the highway not knowing where i would have ended up – i just wanted to keep on driving until the sun started to come up (and being only 8 pm at the time i originally had that thought it would have been a long time behind the wheel!), but i had no idea where to even start to go. i know that sounds kind of odd for wanting to wander around, but… i dunno… it just helps a little when you have somewhere specific in mind? that, and i didn’t have a copilot to pass the time with 🙁 and being out driving around who-knows-where when the sun comes up isn’t very good when you need to be at work in the morning, haha.

there’s specific occasions when you NEED to do something like that, cranking down the windows and speeding along with the music blaring, but that’s usually in highway driving. i did that the other day on the way to ben’s cookout party as i drove out of my neighborhood, but it must have been a sight to see… me, wearing a hawaiian shirt, speeding along with the windows down in my british-built car, stereo blaring a german EZ-listening cover of a russian song from my ipod (made in china) – this old man in the neighborhood was taking his trash out to the street corner as i pulled up next to him in the intersection, and seeing and hearing a sight like that might have made him think that the united nations were coming to town or something, bahahaha…

other than that i’ve just been sitting around at home, working on figuring out funds (aka paying bills)… i worked on creating a budget for myself since i’ve got all my data into quicken now, and i realized how close i squeek by occasionally, so hopefully this’ll help me stick to it. as long as the state doesn’t send my student account off to collections like they did last year! things should be fine once this month is over, though. stupid $822… i had ordered myself a new phone (with bluetooth!) the other day, and that should come within the week. trying to make up my mind what to do with my current (old) one – i looked on ebay and it was going for about $120 on average! O_o and there’s a rebate i can send in too – when all is said and done it could be like i only paid $30-50 for the new one, hahaha

i also emailed the guy from sprint back about the job and said that i was looking for something outside of retail (there’s a good article in today’s paper that – if i could – i’d tape to my desk right in front of me for customers to see :P), but thanks for the consideration. other than that no news about new jobs. i don’t remember if i mentioned it before, but the job i applied for with the IT department at work had only 2 positions open and there’s something like 80 applicants, and i don’t even have my degree. something makes me think that i won’t get the job 🙁 my direct manager told me that he applied for another position, and if he doesn’t get that then he’s considering quitting. nothing else on monster.com… maybe i’ll see about going to the job fair at umbc in a month…

sometimes i just think to myself why i even bother with some things (especially jobs and people), and there’s so many other things that i think that i know what i want to do instead but i’m not sure about at all…. maybe i’ll just go be a hermit or something and not have to deal with money or people or jobs or school. mitch hedberg had the right idea about going with a mountain climbing expedition and just staying at base camp instead – you get to sleep in a colorful tent, grow a beard, drink hot chocolate, and just hang out!

i should be going to bed since i need to be at work at 8 am, but i’m getting hungry. i’d cook myself an egg, but who cooks eggs at 2 am? haha… maybe i’ll just have a quick snack, sleep for a few hours, and wake up early to make me some breakfast. mmm…
