livejournal! i'm don't remember what my last entry was -- i am sure it was long and mopey -- so let's have some happiness for once:
i got to spend a very awesome week with the lovely crackedeggie
i feel as though i owe her a billion apologies for making her fly all the way to bum-fuck indiana just to hang out with me (guys, it's winter so she didn't even get to witness our long-fabled corn fields), but i'm 99% sure my presence was worth it considering a). kanye west good times, b). chicago and c). she got to hear my skilled yelling/complaining/WHY WON'T EVERYONE VACATE THE PLANET-ing.
ANYWAY SO we went to chicago for a couple of days and it was great. we stayed at this chic (i feel vaguely like an asshole using this word but i can't think of another. modern? contemporary? bagel-y?) hostel in the lincoln park area. very vibrant with great service, and the neighborhood was cute. due to a shortage of cash (and time) we didn't get to see a lot of the museums (i reaaaaaally wanted to see the science and industry museum) (i don't think this paragraph has enough parenthesis), but we did make it around to the history museum and a very nice and large metallic bean which reflected the chicago skyline. there was also a lot of aimless wandering, state street is a MYTH, delicious caramel popcorn, and the best fuckin' cupcakes to walk the planet. all very nice! also: i got this cardboard cut-out trivia book with all the presidents heads and short summaries of their achievements. i don't wanna brag, but it's a sweet deal.
the down side is that i perhaps maybe just a smidge miss seeing her face everyday. agnieszka (and no, i did not use facebook so you gotta forgive me if i've spelled it wrong), we gotta do it again sometime. in new york. NEW YORK.
as for my post-crackedeggie
life, i don't know. i was kinda down and i'm still confused on graduate school shit, and then it was SIXTY DEGREES HERE and i couldn't bear to be unhappy, and now i'm just kinda relieved it's spring break next week. speaking of spring break, oh my god, i am so excited. i thought i'd be really happy with classes this semester, but everything's been kinda boring so far. my sociology of women class is child's play (i feel really arrogant saying this but it's a 300-level class and we've just covered gender roles and symbollic annihilation. come on)
, and early world history class is memorization, and my psych of sexuality class is barely worth going to. i don't even KNOW what my women in antiquity class is. i'm just feeling bored
this semester. on the bright side, i'm loving my history of modern european women class! my professor's great and the material is interesting. it's still a bit of an easy class, especially considering it's a 400-level, but the essays we have to write take a good amount of insight and research to complete so it gets fun.
UGH ALSO COMPLAINING TIME: i found out two of my roommates are moving out. we don't have any replacements lined up and it's a four-room house. if i had my way i'd be moving out with everyone. the roommate i'm left with is also the roommate whom i fantasize about killing on a regular basis since she's a bit of a sanctimonious asshole. plus, i'm way to far from campus for someone who doesn't have a car and considering none of my friends need a place to stay, i'll be living with people i don't know and probably have nothing in common with, as my roommate only hangs out with a christian crowd on campus it is very, very hard for me to relate to. i don't know, man, it's a mess.
anyone want a roommate next year?
