anime night

I swear today was colder than last Thursday was.

Wow, the world is white outside.

I wouldn't have even known snow was predicted but that the campus was molassesed.

The last time it snowed i was just "shrug, pretty," which made me sad, because usually the snow makes me so happy.

It was still only just starting when i went to my UMass class, so i didn't see it snowing in force until i was waiting for the bus back. The ground was already lightly covered, and the snowing pouring down at a bit of a slant which always looks so cool in the lamplight like in the movies... and the sky must have been cloudy to precipitate, but it looked bright solid blue with varying darknesses.

But -- maybe because i was waiting for a bus and usually in the snow i'm pedestrianing -- i felt like it was just weather, didn't have the joy snow usually gives me these past few years. *sighs*

[8:15pm: Looking out the windows it doesn't look like it's still snowing, but Charlotte just came back in from outside and says it's snowing hard, and that the accumulation is a few inches already.]

blah blah blah, my day

Tangent last night ended up being held in Kasey and Lucas’s Friedman. Early on there was the following exchange:
     “Who doesn’t know where the Friedmans are?” (asked rhetorically)
     Me: “Until about 2 minutes ago, i didn’t.”
     “Don’t you go to parties?”
     Me: “No, actually.”

I’m a terrible student who takes more notes on the amusing things her professors say than on the actual literary discussions -- in Michael’s class, at least. Allie says i’m not a terrible student, just strange.

Michael: “If no one minds, I’m going to partially disrobe.”
Sharon: “Should there be music?”
Michael: “Sure. Anyone got any singles?”

Most disturbing quote from him ever: “Mmm... leg irons....”

Last Wednesday i was writing a response paper for Doug’s class, well into the night because i was so not into writing it. So i thought it ended up a very poor paper. What do i get as a comment?
Wow – This is a splendidly argued meditation (both in what you say and how). You wrote well in Eng 170, but I don’t remember you writing This well!
Well, it has been 2 years after all. Good to know all the lit classes i've taken in that time actually had some effect :)

I sat with Sam-from-Hampshire on the bus to UMass which was cool as i hadn’t seen or talked to her in ages.

I enjoy that my UMass class marks its beginning by turning out the lights and playing a gong sound.

We have in-class writing assignments and starting this Thursday they will be based on the readings we are supposed to have done for that day’s class. I am hoping the annoying people who keep talking to their neighbors during class will drop the class.

In other news, i enjoy the fact that i sometimes attain mythical status and get inextricably linked to words/phrases like "problematic."
