Got a ride back here from Ben after he woke up around 11am today… I chilled for awhile, ate some oatmeal, and then took a nap.. elph came by around 3-ish and we hung out, went to The Commons for some food and talk, and came back for some TV…. We ended up in Ethan’s room watching Jurassic Park and she left about an hour ago…
It is nice to have a day where you can just relax and chill with friends…. Tomorrow I need to do some calc work and study for my Data Comm exam on monday. For now, I am just being very lazy, and enjoying it…
I took my 3rd chem exam today, and I did fairly well on it considering the course is about as interesting as an entire campus of bricks. The instructor just finished grading all the homework and work I have done this quarter and told me that I have a C in the course, but that I would need to do pretty well on the Final to get a B. I could simply skip the final at this point and it wouldn’t effect me… I am fairly certain that I won’t be able to pull the score necessary to get the B… What to do…
Tying up loose ends sucks… :)
I did alot of work today, both some new and some I slacked on throughout the quarter, but I am feeling quite caught up… A few more hours this weekend and I think I will have everything cleared out of the way in preparation for finals next week…
Less than two weeks left as a pseudo-Rochesterian… In a way, I can’t wait for this period to be over… I am sick of being a student, and graduation looks very appetizing right now.. But some of the most important and exciting memories I have accrued to date are firmly rooted in this town.. I guess these feelings are combined reflection, hope, and dread… I am going to miss this place, but I don’t think I would want to stay any longer either…
In other news, I finished my Senior Seminar paper last night…. It sucks, but it is a decent effort… I just didn’t feel interested in the topic whatsoever, so my brain didn’t engage that well…
I am feeling a little sick to my stomach today, I think the stress is breaking me once again… I just need to hold out a little longer… I spent some time on Monday straightening out my desk and other belongings in preparation of my departure.. I have a lot of crap, but it could be worse (as anyone that witnessed the departure of Chris after her graduation can attest.
I am going to kick it on my paper now….

The next few days will be pretty busy…. I get my Calc exam back today, and I am both nervous and excited: What if I didn’t do as well as I expect? What if I did? These questions and more shall be settled in a few hours… :)
I also have to finish my term paper for Senior Seminar, and by finish I mean start. :) It needs to be 6 pages, double-spaced, and I am fairly familiar with the subject matter, so it should come together rather easily…. Probably a few hours tonight will finish it off.
A bunch of us went out to MacGregor’s for some dinner and just to hang out. I was going to celebrate my performance on the Calc exam, but I think everyone else was just there for fun. :) We stayed there pretty late, and then we came back and watched Heathers, which is an amazing piece of 80s cinema. I am still amazed at the number of people who haven’t seen that film around here….
My back is a little sore, I ended up sleeping on the floor last night because Jen wasn’t really in the shape to drive, and since her car was stick no one else was really qualified to take her car back, so she stayed over and I let her take the bed… I am too nice of a guy. :)
I know Jen and I are going out in a few hours to check out Hannibal, and I am not quite sure who else is going with us… My Roommate, Jon Parise didn’t really express much interest in going, and he is planning on going apartment shopping with Ethan anyway…. I don’t know if Conlon is interested; He is getting a ride over with Jen later to work on his project, so I don’t know if he would want to give up work for some good old-fashioned cannibalistic fun. :)
I think I did very, very, well on my exam…. Find out on Tuesday…
Studying for my calc exam later today, but honestly, I think I am as prepared as I am gonna get. I have been doing problems for the past hour and change, and I am going to continue to do so until the exam at 4… I hate to say this, but I feel way more confident about this exam than my last, so… It doesn’t help that I have been doing really well on the quizzes of late. Maybe I can actually pull this class off for a change..
