Turns out the reason the cold medicine made me feel worse is because I'm allergic to some of the ingredients. Go me!

I now get to cross off Tylenol from my list of approved medicines.

*blerg*

Why, oh, why does cold medicine make me feel worse?

And why, oh, why do I have crazy fucked up dreams about LotR elves and Norse gods when I take it?

*grumbles*

Imma gonna go back ta sleep now.

If you have accounts at either of those two websites, you need to go change your password. Monster will have you automatically change your password when you sign in, but USAJobs won't. The hack on USAJobs was in part with the Monster hack.

Let me just tell you, Mac computers are just freaking awesome! Not only do they look very cool, they have great functions! I could spend all night playing around this computer instead of actually working on my Reading essay (474 words and counting, but I really need to start actually answering the question...). Although, I really do miss those neat keys like ALT+Tab, CRTL+C, right clicking...but other than that, these computers are great! I'd reccomend them to anyone who doesn't really care what type of operating system they use...

Anyway, the only reason I'm updating my journal is because I don't want to work on my essay anymore. I did really well iin the library, writing most of it before I decided that it was time to go to a computer lab to type some of it up. I first went to psych lab, but there were *gasp* people in there, so I decided that I knew enough about Mac's to get me by - I'm glad there wasn't anyone in here. There is now of course, because I just can't seem to get away from people tonight. *sigh* Oh well.

I really need to learn that working on comptuers doesn't actually mean that I'll get any work done. I knew I shouldn't have come to the comptuer lab yet, but it was just so depressing in the Library, and I couldn't concentrate. Not that I'm actually concentrating on it now, of course, but there is still hope. I've actually hand written another paragraph, I just need to type it up and think about the quesion to answer it.

I can't believe that I changed topics, tho'. I really didn't want to write about the first question for the application, which deals with idealism v. pragmatism of the US trying to force democracy on the rest of the world, I really didn't. But as I was sitting down and thinking about what I had to write for the second question, I realized the only things that were coming to my head were for the other question. Without even trying I had managed to write a page in a half about the topic I didn't even select! *grumbles* I'm really not trying to copy Karlene, it just seems like it. Besides, I know the angle she took on her essay, and am studiously avoiding that subject as much as possible.

It doesn't help that Anne decided to "put in a good word for me." I mean, yeah, it was very sweet of her, and I am grateful (sort of), but she made my essay out to be this great piece of work that I had spend months preparing. Which is an utter lie, as we all know, becuase I really only started writing it tonight. Now, I have to either live up to the expectations that she set for me, or completley dissapoint Dr. Irwin (not something that I want to do). Also, I would have liked to get in without that type of help from people. I wanted to get in on my own merits alone. Grawr. Anne, I love you, but come one, did you really have to do this? Now I'm all worried where I really wasn't before. If I don't get in, I think I'll be heart broken.

Although, I never expected to get into R-MWC, either, so maybe I still have hope. While I did place seventh in my high school class, with a 4.1 no less, my SATs were less than stellar, and money has alays been an issue for my family. With three kids now in college, it's hard to believe that I'm actually *here* and not in some state school like VTech or UVA.

I really wish I could have gone to the opening showing of RotK tonight. Denise is going, the lucky hobbit. She doesn't have a time restraint on when she has to leave like I do, so she gets to have a night off from worrying about exams. *chuckles* However, I think they're going to Roanoke to see it which is an hour away from here. For a three hour and fifteen minute movie, a two hour car trip means that they'll be out until five tomorrow morning. Makes me glad that I'm not actually going, for I have to take Goldman's CompPol exam if I want to take d'Entremont's American History exam Thursday morning. I have absolutely no earthly idea when I'm going to pack for the trip home. As I'll be gone for about a month, I'll need to take more than I took home for fall break. Why is exam week so stressful?

Hmmm...it seems like this computer is about to crash. Apparently I *can* crash a Mac computer...who knew? Anyway, I'll have to update more later.

Took two exams today: Geisert, which I was planning on, and Ishibashi, which I wasn't really planning on.

Denise and Brandy and anyone else who hasn't taken the Geisert exam, don't read this 'til you do. )

And Professor Ishibashi's exam was ok. It was inevitable that my mind would blank out on the most point worthy part of the exam and have a million things to say about stuff that's only worth like ten points. *shakes head*

In true R-MWC tradition, all I can say is...I'm glad that it's over.

^___^v

Life sucks.

I seem to be saying that lately, and I can't figure out why. But...well, life sucks.

Damn you internet explorer. Damn you.

And damn you Toshiba. It was almost two and a half years before a had a problem with you. Why did you have to break on me noooooow?

A long time ago, Karlene and I had a rather strange conversation late at night which involved the speculation as to whether Ents (from LotR), were sexual at all, and if so, if they had slash relations. (After watching the Extened Edition DVD of TTT, I can say now, yes, ents are sexual. I think I would've known that if I had actually read the books...)

Anyway, after posting this to LJ, Mary had commented that there is probably a fanfic of Ent slash. And, dammit, she was right! Behold! Legolas/Ent slash fanfic~!

That's just fuckin' scary, man!

I got an email from Professor Chua today proclaiming that instead of being in a chamber ensemble with several people, I'm to be apart of a duet, with a saxophone major. Major freak out time.

Ok, I haven't really practiced the saxophone going onto two years now. I was rather hoping that I would be able to do something small and fun and with a lot of people to back me up. It's been so long since I've had lessons or anything like that.

And I have absolutely no idea what her skill level is! I mean, am I going to be totally blown out of the water?? What if they LAUGH at me!! *more freaking out* While, I don't think they'll laugh at me, per se, but I could just imagine being completely mortified when they realize I'm not quite as good as they may think I am.

And another thing! I'll probably be stuck with all of the boring second parts. Gah!! I spent most of my highschool career being principle alto by virtue that I was the oldest or the only one! I don't know if I can stuff my self back into the second best role.

*continues to freak out while trying to work on polisearch work*

Hmmm...

If I ever seem a bit faraway, bitchy or snappy, here's why:

Monday: Test due for Japanese (an apparently an application but no one did it so, oh, well) and Catering from 4-11. *done and done!*

Tuesday: Get Chapter 17 test for Japanese; practice violin; meeting with UReading seniors for interview; Home Before Morning discussion.

Wednesday: Violin lesson; Self-Defense; catering from 4:30-11 (all in a row with no real break); at some point study for d'Entremont's test.

Thursday: d'Entremont's test, supposedly catering from 1-4 but as I'll be taking a test...; CompPol readings along with Political Research.

Friday: Catering 4-? Japanese test due. Argh.

Saturday: Catering 8:30 (in the morning!) - 1. Ewww.

That's a basic schedule. I'm sure other things will crop up later.
