Ouch. I had a headache when I woke up this morning - hangover.
For some weird reason I can't get AIM to work. It just says "Sign on blocked" every time I try, even when I try with a different screen name or on a friend's computer, and apparently no one else has this problem. If it isn't back by tomorrow, I'll have to try creating a new screen name. But, small favors: thanks to Trillian, I can access my buddy list without being online, so even if I do have to abandon my old screen name - and I don't have the faintest idea why this happened - at least I won't lose peoples' screen names.
Wednesday was yet another night where it went well, but I don't have a clue why. I mean, I'm torn between feeling frustrated that we're so disorganized and lazy that it's always last-minute, seat-of-the-pants writing and editing, and feeling proud that we handle it so well. But anyways, that was my last paper as a news editor. I might be a copy editor next semester if they need it, and I'll definitely keep on writing and eating dinner there and stuff, but all the hard work of being an editor is over for me. Since I'm only going to be around for a semester, I can't be an editor again.
Why not reapply for Take Five next semester? I've thought about it - and in fact, it just occurred to me that I should try to find an advisor or something and ask why my proposal was rejected, if only to satisfy my curiosity - but I don't think I will. If I plan for next year assuming I would get into Take Five and I don't, it would be a huge mess. No double major, committments at the CT I wouldn't be able to keep, etc. But if I sign up for classes assuming I won't get in, then it would seriously hurt my chances of getting in, I believe, and even if I did it would completely burn me out to take eight classes of Spanish language and culture in two semesters.
Anyways... I had really planned to go to class on Thursday. With exams and final papers coming up, I can't slack off any more. But I didn't go to bed immediately after getting back to my room, so instead of waking up in class I slept through my damn alarm. That night we ("we" being a dozen or so people from the hall) went to the Boar's Head dinner. It was my first. The food was great by any standard - and by the standards of campus food, it was amazing.
Friday I made a drink run with Allison in the morning for a party later that night. In the afternoon/evening I played some games of Magic with Katye and Kenny. Around 11 I went to that party at Sandeep's in GLC, seeing his place for the first time. It was fun (but to judge by my hangover, a little too fun).
And now, I need to go get back my backpack and 12-pack, which I forgot over there.
