Flight from SeaTac to JFK - sat next to a fat couple. They do not each need 2 seats but together they def needed 3. Fat lady’s fat kept swallowing me; I wanted to shower a ridic amount.
Landed in JFK at like 5:30 am, I had a couple hours so I wandered. Lacoste was fucking open, I def wanted to drop 100 bucks on a preppy polo at 6 am. 10 minutes later I was surrounded by germans. I was a bit delirious and felt like I was no longer in america…. so few english speaking people!
Paid 7 bucks for a jamba juice, hhattee airport prices
Some guy in White Chicks was on my plane from JFK to IAD
Got to dc, napped. Got chik fil a! WOOO! Def upgraded from a kids meal to a big person meal, yay being 18!
Talked to Dave for a bit, all he talks about lately is how once I was 14 and now i’m 18…. hey Dave once you were 14 too! lol. Pretty sure they all still see me at 14; it doesn’t really bug me as it is rather amusing, but it would be nice to know someone who thinks of me as an adult. I don’t really feel like I’m extremely childish (?) but I could be wrong.
Katie Spence time, yay! She’s one of the few people who get it. Also she gets the food thing… I think she’s like the only one.
Mfh was greeaatt! Dave’s voice wasn’t even remotely shot which is crazy because 1.5 yrs ago it def would have been. They actually did play Chivalry (Dave said probably for the last time, pretty sure they hate that song)! And they copped out of actually playing Retaliate by making it all acoustic and indie, although I did like it.
Adventures finding IHOP with Katie in a smartcar. Def mysteriously lost a shirt, odd. I think she’s my only white friend who likes Miyazaki so yay for her.
The hotel had 2 shower heads, it was the epitome of awesome.
Slept sooo good. Then got up, stormed Tysons (which btw the Starbucks when it JUST opened was out of Raspberry syrup, this would not be acceptable in Seattle), ate cinnasticks, did generally awesome things.
IAD to CLT. Chilled forever at CLT, part of it in the USO which was awweessommee! Yay for traveling with my own dad. CLT to SeaTac, my pencil case mysteriously went missing so I did math in pen (yuck!)
Anyway it was great. MFH/Katie Spence = awesome/legit. And seriously since when do I lose things; I never lose things! But overall splendid time.
If anybody lives in Seattle or knows someone who does let me know please. I’d like to ask a few questions about living there.
Preferably someone that’s into shows and/or straight edge.
But anyone works for me! I just need some info!
i don’t live in seattle, but i live in olympia which is about 1 1/2-2 hours away. but i’m really into the music scene/straight edge!
I currently reside in the U District of Seattle 90+% of the time. While I love Seattle, honestly once you live there it’s just another town. Its a place where you get up and go to school/work every day. While Seattle has a lot to offer it’s not like you are going to go out every night (unless you have endless bounds of energy—I don’t). A lot of tours skip here, but we also get a lot more tours than many other areas. The local scene has lately been hardcore, but alt and poprock gems happen every now and then. If you like Forgive Durden you get the pleasure of seeing Thomas Dutton around sometimes.
Also you will really want to research a lot. I live in the U District, so it’s very much a college town except sans fast food and +lotsa mom and pop food places. Seattle is split up into an infinite amount of districts. Freemont and Capitol Hill are very kitschy and excentric, Ravenna is filled more with families. I’d start looking into different districts, as Seattle as a whole ranges a ton in attitude/etc.
I will not make it through the quarter without an ulcer at this rate.
Woke up today and was going to pack. Started by updated my iPod, except iTunes is a bitch and wouldnt fucking open. So I restarted my comptuer (and by restarted I mean manually hold the power button down and punch it again for on) and it found iTunes but every fucking one of my files had the ! missing symbol. Awesome. Imported all my songs from my external. While this was happening I was going to print some stuff from English. Microsoft Word and Powerpoint wont open. 30 minutes later iTunes freezes. Ever since I fucking got Windows 7 my computer will NOT stay on for more than an hour and it won’t turn itself off (I have to do it manually which I’m pretty sure is bad). Great, so now not only do I have to go through and manually delete all of the ! files on iTunes (which I’ve been doing for 3 hours today and I’m not even 1/10th done), I don’t even have Word anymore. I hate Windows seven so much.
Leave for school. The Chem quiz was exponentially harder than the homework. I had to walk probably 1.2 miles in the rain in 10 minutes to get to my next class. I got there just as the bell was ringing and just sat. My friend, who has been extremely annoying lately, came in late and was mad I didn’t save him a seat when he only had to walk .7 miles in 10 minutes. WTF, sorry I got there before you asswipe.
Went from Condon to Foege; I had an appointment with my BioE adviser at 2. Waited til 2:25, she never came.
Walked back to my apt. Fell on a metal slab on the sidewalk. Def sprained my ankle, plausibly also my knee. My roommate wanted me to go to the ER (its swelling) but why waste my time when I know exactly what they’re going to tell me?
Was going to come back to my apt, eat, then go to Chem Office Hours to talk to my TA then to the Math Study Center to get some math done. Cannot walk. Therefore none of that happened.
Overall by now I should have: been packed, had a plan for BioE, talked to my chem TA, and done approx half my math. Rather I am maybe half packed and have done like 1/8 of my math. Awesome.
I fucking need this vacation so bad but at the same time I can’t stop crying/stressing/freaking out today because I’m so far behind and I just don’t have time for any of this bullshit! And my leg hurts like a motherfucker!
ALL OF MY MATH/CHEM HOMEWORK IS DUE ON WEDNESDAYS AGAIN!
This essentially means that my Wednesdays are normal peoples Friday, which means my Thursdays are hang out days but everyone else is cramming to get their shit done for Friday, which in turn = no social life. Also this means my Saturdays/Sundays are like normal people Wednesdays (when you do the most of your work) as I’m supposed to have majority of my math hmwk done by Tuesday so we can ask a few questions to our TA about it since it is due Wednesday morning. Which means I can’t hang out on the weekends and my friends can’t hang out on Thursdays. Guh. Dislike.
In other news I could probably totally make it to VA for the Saturday full catalog MFH show as I don’t have lab or a large test the following week. However, me losing all day Saturday and at least half of Sunday means me being behind on all my work since I’m supposed to do my work on the weekends to be ready to turn it in on Wednesdays. Boo.
