Definite sign that I've become a true Radio KoL junkie:

EyeSpeculum, one of the most awesome DJs on the station, is taking a month-long hiatus. His last show for a while just finished up, and at the end both he and a good number of us listening were starting to tear up. *smiles slightly* Yeah, I know I should have been in bed hours ago and that I'll be heading to Regionals in about an hour, but I really wanted to hear Spec's last hurrah before he goes to recharge his mojo. Really glad that I did. See ya later, Spec; you'll be missed.

Catch you on the flip side...

Well, here it is. One hour before the ball drops in the square and we (on the East Coast, anyway) officially enter 2006. This year is gonna be different than the rest, I know that for a fact. Due to some incredibly stupid thing that I did last semester, I am on my third strike. If I botch it up this semester, I'm doing my senior year at UCF. Screw the fact that the program at FSU is much better, my parents have said that if I can't prove that I can take care of thing in Tallahassee (my grades this semester were abysmal, I almost forgot to send in the rent check for January), I'll be in Winter Springs so they can keep an eye on me.

My parents have given me this talk before, but what really drove it home for me was the fact that my mom was in TEARS when she left the house this morning for my grandparents' place. It made me realize what my slacking was doing to her and I've sworn that I will NEVER let that happen again. So, I've got a few resolutions for this year that I'm damn well going to keep.

1. I'm turning the computer off at 1AM at the LATEST. No more staying up until 4 in the morning listening to Radio KoL and talking with folks online.
2. I'm going to get a job. I've blown through so much money since I started at FSU it's not funny. So, Dad and I are going to figure out a budget before I leave, and I'm gonna stick to it and find a job.
3. I'm going to actually stick with Weight Watchers. I have the booklets and whatnot, so the meetings aren't that necessary. I'm WAY too heavy for my height, and I need to fix that.

Those are the ones I have at the moment; the list will probably grow as the days go on. *channels Darien Fawkes a bit* There's a Chinese proverb that says while teachers open the door, you have to enter by yourself. If I'm going to open the door for others, I need to figure out how to open the lock first. Wish me luck.

Salutations from the (almost) Frozen North! I'm currently sitting in the computer lab in a youth hostel in NYC, happy as hell to be here but wondering why they have to charge 10 cents a minute to get online. o_O

I headed down to Orlando with my cousin Thursday morning - unfortunatly missing the Macy's parade - and chilled with the familia for a few hours and had a nice brunch/Thanksgiving dinner thing. I then headed to the airport with my Aunt Kathy, Aunt Ginny and Kathy's four kids. The trip up wasn't too bad; watched the second half of The Island (was reading for the first half. Mmm...Stephen King), had a little nap at one point. Then, we headed out to the train platform and waited for the train to Penn Station. It was COLD. Like, 30's cold. I ended up standing on the train 'cause there wasn't enough seats, but it was only two stops from the Newark airport to NYC, so it wasn't too bad. We then hopped on the subway and came to the youth hostel. For folks who don't know, it's basically a boarding house where you're in a room with about 5-6 other peoples. It's hella cheap, 'specially for New York; $120 for four nights ain't too shabby. After getting settled in and snagging some pizza, I turned in for the night.

I woke up at about 8:45 this morning, then headed to the communal showers on the second floor. It wasn't as bad as I was expecting, although I had flashbacks to the showers in the dorm in Kentucky. After that, we snagged a bit of breakfast, then headed out. We first went to the Cathadral of St. John the Divine, a really cool-looking chruch down the street from the hostel. Got a coupla pics of the artwork from there; I'll be posting everything up on my Photobucket once I get home. After that, we headed down town and went shopping for a while. Lunch consisted of a hot dog and a Pepsi in Central Park, then we went down to the ice skating rink in the park. I was very proud of the fact that I didn't fall ONCE. =D After the skating, we headed back to the hostel, and here I be.

El should be calling me soon, so I should ramble. See you guys later! *walks off humming "New York, New York"*

*rises from the depths of lurkdom* Due to a bit or prodding from folks (I'm looking at you, El), I'm finally doing a quick little update. I'll go into more detail on the summer later, when I'm not at risk of being late for Greek.

The semester thus far has been decidedly...meh. I really don't like my Greek Art and Archaeology professor, Greek has been kicking my ass, and I'm really worried about failing Homosexuality in Antiquity. On a ligher note, however, I am fully enjoying Greece and Egypt, Eta Sigma Phi has been fun and I haven't gotten into a major spat with Emily about the apartment. Also, I'm helping to run a Werewolf game in town, which definitelty has its ups and downs. Won't bore ya with the details, though; I know most of the folks who read this prolly won't understand most of the in-game stuff anyway. *grin*

Overall I'm doing pretty well, barring the fact that I'm sans Interweb on my computer at home. With luck the wireless router that Em's mom is going to send up will help; if not, I'm just gonna go buy one myself. I've either been doing stuff on campus or using Em's computer, which workd to a degree. I feel bad taking over her computer, though. *le sigh* With luck we'll get something figured out.

As today is my day for signing up for classes, I figured I'd post my schedule (as it is, anyway; haven't talked with my advisor yet). Enjoy.

Greek and Roman Epics 11:15-12:05
Beginning Latin 12:20-1:10

Aegean Bronze Age Art and Archaeology 9:30-10:45
Age of Alexander 2:00-3:15
Myth in Greek Art 3:35-4:50

Greek and Roman Epics 11:15-12:05

Not too bad, eh? Only one class on Friday, good break between classes on T/R, done early most days (which will help when I finally find a job). I know the professors for all of the classes barring Myth in Greek Art and Latin II, which is a perk.

Anyhoo, I've gotta ramble if I'm gonna get to Greek on time. See you guys later.
