Things I Learned from 2D Design:

  1. If something's "phallic" and/or "penetrating," it's probably neither of the two
  2. If it's "masculine," it's definitely perfume
  3. We may be college students, but it doesn't mean we act like it
  4. Everything can be described by the terms "magical" and "nostaligic"
  5. The 2D Design classroom definitely has the worst chairs in the building--you either fall off or they sink down a foot when you sit down
  6. You definitely can--and will--leave the only supply you need for the project you'll be working on for two and a half hours in your room.  And you'll spend those two and a half hours doing absolutely nothing.
  7. Smelling Sharpe's for an extended period of time is BAD
  8. Bringing your knitting to class is a good idea--it's still creative and it's fun
I sat down with the intention of trying to sum up what it's truly like to be in my 2D Design class right now.  I've probably missed a lot (it's not my fault I have a bad memory . . .) but this is pretty much what's been happening in that class lately.  Umm . . . hiking is fun . . . I went on an impromptu hiking trip on Sunday and it was amazing.  Seeing the guys in the car in front of us was funny and seeing a six foot, seven inch guy squeezing into the back seat of a Toyota Corolla--priceless.  The place where we went hiking was beautiful.  It was a little muddy, but not as bad as I thought it would be considering it rained all of Saturday.  Watching Lion King 1 and 2 all afternoon on Saturday was pretty fun, too.  Now on to the dreariness of a wellness paper.  Adios, all.

Random Lord of the Rings Quote of the Day

"I like that!" said Sam.  "I should like to learn it.  In Moria, in Khazad-dûm!  But it makes the darkness seem heavier, thinking of all those lamps.  Are there piles of jewls and gold lying about here still?"
I'm presently working my way back through The Lord of the Rings for probably the millionth time.  I wish more people were able to appreciate the amount of literary genius that went into the writing of that trilogy.  I've read it multiple times and I still find that there are details that I've missed.  I actually went and sat by the pond to read for a little while before dinner, but didn't get much reading done.  There's just so much general activity there, between the people walking by and the ducks and geese . . . It's ok, though.  I really just needed to get outside for a little while.  It was a beautiful day today and I spent 90% of it inside.  In class.  That seemed to last forever. 

Now on to Psych.  I can't wait until 12:00 tomorrow because it means that I will then be done for the weekend.

10 Things I Learned from College:

  1. People have very different definitions of "normal"
  2. There's no such thing as privacy
  3. There's never enough time to sit down and knit an entire row
  4. If you want to avoid drunk people on a Friday night, close your door
  5. No matter how much time you spend studying, there will always be more homework
  6. You can and will get locked out of your room at least once, and at the most inopportune moment
  7. You will meet many different kinds of people--some crazy in an awesome way and some just plain creepy
  8. Trying to avoid said creepy people is more difficult than it seems
  9. You're not going to become archenemies with your rommates just because you knew them from high school
  10. You will forget about a test and not bring a pencil at the worst time, even though you never did anything like that in high school

Yes, this is a summary of the things I've learned. And none of them relate to class material either, apparently. I know I kind of abandoned the blog up to this point, but I'm trying to keep up with classes and just experience college--work, play, creepers and all... I think I'm starting to get the hang of it.
