I have an addiction with buying books, and it is really unfortunate considering the fact that I’m a college student and really don’t have any extra money to spend. But Barnes & Noble keeps sending me these discounts and sales promotions to my e-mail for beautiful leatherbound classic books like these and I just can’t resist! So this is why I’m typing up a new blog post because I currently have $50 worth of books in my shopping cart and I’m trying to not press the ‘check out’ button. I’m also to the point though that I’m forgetting which books I own and which I don’t… so I should probably wait til I get home to double check. D’oi.
I also should be studying for my last final that I have tomorrow… but nahhh.
I met with one of the administrator’s to fill out the paperwork for my job this morning. I’d say it was exciting, but it was filing out tax forms and that would be a complete lie. It made me happy to know though that it’s all official now. I just have to send them a voided check and then I’ll be ready to start working for next semester.
Though the check thing has me a little worried, because over Thanksgiving break (about 3 weeks ago), I ordered some checks and I was supposed to have received them by now. I sent them to my home address, so my parents may just be blind and may not see the box among the other boxes of
books Christmas presents I have bought that are apparently piling on my bed. I’m going home tomorrow (!!!!!!!!) so I’ll figure it out then. Hopefully they haven’t gotten lost in the mail.
I’m so ready to go home. This first semester of schooling for me was a bit rough and I’m just really tired. Tired of school work, of long assignments, of cafeteria food — especially this week since it is finals week. I mean really, they served nacho cheese with macaroni the other night. They really have just given up. *barf* And I miss everyone back home.
Finals week has been pretty easy for me. I had two French finals and then a Psychology Final, and the rest of my classes I just had projects. I know that did great on my French oral – I somehow managed to get a 98% on that. Talk about miracles. Not so sure how I did on my written final, but I’m not too worried. I’ve pretty much accepted the fact that I got a B in the class, and that’s okay. I have my last final tomorrow at 10:30AM, so I’m hoping to be finished by noon and then me and Andrew and another friend will be heading out by hopefully 1.
Did I also mention that The Hobbit comes out tomorrow at midnight? Did I mention that this dork will be attending the midnight premiere. Did I mention that I get to see my best friend there, too? Weeeeee! Super excited for the movie! Not excited about leaving the next day for Pennsylvania to see my grandma, but that 12 hour drive I will be getting much needed sleep. And it will be good to see her. I haven’t seen her since my grandpap died, so this trip will be a bit different.
So basically I haven’t done anything the last couple of days but watch The Office and play dumb computer games. All for the sake of procrastination, and it’s been a lovely last few days of doing absolutely nothing.
P.S. Today is 12/12/12.
