So here I am in Portland, sitting on my friend's couch, updating via wireless laptop whilst watching the TMBG rock-u-mentary, Gigantic. I love this film. Of course, I also love They Might Be Giants. It's hard to type on this thing. Therefore, from this sentence on, I'm going to stop concerning myself with grammar/spelling/etc. i'm sure that it will look absolutely infantile. oh well. screw it. i don't care.
school looks to be intensive this term, even though i only have 13 credits. they are distributed across japanese 302, psychology 380 (psych of gender) which is an interesting class but the textbook is, honest to god, the most BORING book in the world! i don't have it with me, but i'll post a luverly little sampling of its singularly inimitable horribleness for you all to revile. my final class is the history of jazz, 40s to present. it's supposed to be my fun class, but i rarely go. my reasoning behind this is such: the class is the most BORING class in the world! ok, actually, that's not fair. the class has interesting content, but the instructor's voice has this pleasant droning quality that is wonderful for facilitating sleep. if any insomniacs are reading this, may i suggest taking MUJ350 or 351? i guarantee that you'll get a solid hour of sleep, if not 1.5 hours. so even though i only have 13 credits, i still feel like it's a lot of work. the japanese is a veritable deluge of information which needs to be crammed into my skull, but more often than not it only hangs out long enough to be regurgitated onto a quiz, and then it pulls chocks and takes off into the wild blue yonder. the psych.... oh god, don't get me started on the psych. the class itself is ok, but as i mentioned above, the reading is mind numbing. and i have a gratuitous quantity of it every week, in addition to weekly essays and some kind of Community Outreach Project in lieu of a final. i realize that other people have so much more, but this is my first psych class and it's really very unfamiliar territory for me. oh well. screw it. i'll just have to deal.
In other news, there's a girl that i like! and she doesn't not like me, which is very excellent for me. i gave her several calls in recent weeks and she didn't return them until last night. but we're getting together this weekend, so yay! unfortunately, i have duty this weekend. dammit. oh well, maybe things will go well with this girl. gah, i hope so. i wants to get laid in such a bad way. she's so much more than sex object though. she's so incredible and we connect on so many different wavelengths that if things go well, i forsee a long, mutually fulfilling relationship between us. but i bet the sex would be phenom! i think i'll end this post now and leave all my Loyal Readers with my sexual frustration.
Here is that quote from my psych text... "Most of the inconsistencies in effect sizes revealed by quantitative syntheses are explicable in terms of methodological dissimilarities between studies." WTFOMGLOLBBQ`!!?!?!!!12111!?@!
