went to pistol city last night for some festivities, but the birthday boy was sick and i didn't feel like partying at his place while he was in bed. i did, however, enjoy some mulled cider and pumpkin pie. i also carved my jack-o-lantern. (his name is carl jr.) i want to put him out on the stoop, but i'm afraid my drunken neighbors will smash him to bits. back when i was too young to carve pumpkins and had to paint them, some hoodlums smashed my tiny, orange friend. i sobbed and sobbed. i don't want that to happen again. (though, maybe i wouldn't become so attached if i didn't give the damn things names.)
i've got two more geology midterms this week. i got a B+ on my environmental midterm. this is pretty disappointing to me, as i felt i knew this stuff cold. but, then again, i did take the exam in 15 minutes, so it's highly likely that i didn't read all of the questions or instructions. in the long run, i don't really care, because i've still got an A+ in that class. so, fuck it.
spring registration is quickly approaching. i still need to meet with my adviser and apply to the teaching program. also, i've got to figure out how i'm going to pay for school from now on.
life is getting stressful and it's tempting to just curl up under the down comforter and fall asleep to the sweet, soothing sounds of futurama. i feel like i could get by with just a bear hug and a sentence along the lines of everything is going to be alright, but that's not going to happen.
this is what it's like to stand on your own.
in other news, i had the curiously bad luck today of witnessing my (electronic) apology to someone being ignored just moments after i wrote it. it pretty much sucked completely.
well, i guess it's back to work.
hey! if you like wallace and gromit, be sure to check out the curse of the were-rabbit. it's really fun and cute.
