I was so motivated to write more at the beginning of the month. Go figure. I realize now that it had everything to do with being at the beginning of the term and feeling oh-so-optimistic about the possibilities and potential for new learning and everything that goes along with a shiny new school year.
Around Week 5, when you are literally dragging yourself to class to face the same lecture for the third time, listening to the same self-important idiot banter with the professor, and trying to do everything you can to prop up your eyelids until 9pm, the shine has clearly worn off.
I've said it before--my classmates are darn near the only reason I am still surviving this term. When all we need to do is cock an eyebrow at each other to have a conversation, that makes it all just a little more bearable. Especially when that conversation is about our mutual irritation with the one classmate who insists on commenting on every. damned. thing. the professor says. Dude, get a life and please stop sharing every inane detail of your current one with the entire class. We are not a blog and we are also not your therapist. Full stop.
Other than that, I get to meet the guy who invented wikis today and interview him for our presentation next week. So that's pretty cool.
Hope everyone's having a lovely Halloween and will spend tomorrow in a sugar- and beer-fuelled stupor just like me.
Quote of the Day: "There are certain RULES that one must abide by in order to successfully survive a horror movie. For instance, number one: you can never have sex. BIG NO NO! BIG NO NO! Sex equals death, okay? Number two: you can never drink or do drugs. The sin factor! It's a sin. It's an extension of number one. And number three: never, ever, ever under any circumstances say, "I'll be right back." Because you won't be back." Randy (Jamie Kennedy), Scream.
