You're doing something wrong.

Talk about school now, nerds.

    My co-president of my improv comedy troupe told me after seeing a show by Jet City Improv at our school she got to talk over some stuff with them. Apparently their talk went so well that we've been invited to their intercollegiate improv convention at Northwest University.

    With that and opening for the Upright Citizens Brigade our group is having a lot of awesome things happen.

    Oh yeah!

    I didn't do any of my reading this weekend so now I'm stuck trying to read it all late at night. I don't think I've ever just blown off homework like I did this weekend.

    Oh well, at least it's only two classes and the reading isn't that heavy.

    it's also interest free as long as I stay in the country for at least 6 months out of every year (which means if I stay overseas for the 2nd 6 months of 1 year and the first 6 of the next, I can go for a year at a time)

    not quite the northern european free/getting paid to go to uni, but still pretty nice

    Monday Wednesday and Friday I have school all day, Tuesday and Thursday I work at Best Buy.

    I love school days.

    After this semester I start work at the campus copy centre, though and can quit Best Buy. That will be nice. I quite like spending time on campus.

    Also at the end of this week my first paper for my ridiculously easy English class is due. 250 words on Zombies vs. Vampires.

    Then it's classes six days a week, all starting between 9 and 10 AM.

    I am not a morning person.

    Yay I filled out my FAFSA last night and it turns out I am poor and the government does not expect me to contribute much to my own education!

    As such I have been awarded the low low EFC score of 519 with extra shame and an invitation to consider getting a god damn loan I don't want or need

    Looks like I'll finally be getting a laptop to take notes, for fuck's sake I am sick of writing everything on the slides and everything that comes out of my professor's mouth in like 5 different classes, my hand is going to fall off if I do this all semester

    Man I would kill a hobo to have a semester where I didn't either have a 6 AM athletics class or an 8 AM crazy science/math course, or both

    I'm really liking my modern political thought class. Machiavelli is not a bad read and I have a cool Romanian professor.

    Marx and Hegel are near the very end of the course though so I don't know if/when we will ever get to them.
