So, this is the start. I woulda loved to have had this in January. Lots has happened since then. I am flunking two classes. One I can bring back by turning in some no-due- date-attached assignments, the other I missed a test in. I didnt even know we had a test. I woulda been there had it not been because I stayed up until 4 AM the night before. class was at 8. I fell asleep with all the lights on. You think you can get in bed and stay awake. But you can't. I can't. I'm pathetic. Really sucked when I went in this morning and saw the tests being handed back. :0 Counted for 25 of 200 possible points. Yay.

This whole slacker thing is because of my new job. I thought it would give me more discipline. Maybe from some other job. But this one I get to pick my own hours, I can go to work in the middle of the night, and I have unlimited access to a sweet PC workstation. Nope, nothing porn- related. Web designer/maintainer. It's great, and yet it's fucking up my life. Or, rather, I am.

Today sucked. Before today I had a nice big office to myself. Then my employer who is a professor put a buncha engineers in there with me. Like two or three. All them are kinda redneck pretty boys. One of them had a bad cough. Probably from binge drinking. They play bad rock on their speakers and talk about meaningless shit. At least I can avoid them by coming in late. But now I can't look at Katie Holmes naked on one monitor while I Dreamweave on the other. ;) At least they brought a telephone and trash can with 'em. Fuckers.

3) getting latest Roswell episodes to watch over the weekend! w00p!
4) going to see Save the Last Dance movie for 4th and probably last time on Monday. So I sing the song of love for Julia....
