okay, so you know how sometimes the computers in the library get locked out? And you can't log in without unlocking it or having some secret code or something?

Well since I have been here (a period of about 20 minutes) I have watched 4, no 5 people try to log onto this one computer and not be able to.

But hey, I tried logging onto it too and it didn't work so i moved back a row and right into perfect view of this phenomenon.

Now it's been 6 people.

Lazy Sunday

I love sundays.  I especially loved this one for fueling me up and getting me ready for the final few weeks of school.  It's crazy how church can seem to be completely tailored to you sometimes... I love that most.

Today I am grateful for:
Letters from my sister
my parents
and good books

November 28th 2009

A lot of my friends can take their own pictures, but i really can't.  I lack the equipment and the technically skills...  I borrow them.  But I am a student so fair use right?

On a more serious note:

This is Thanksgiving week, and I really do have a lot to be thankful for so I think I will dedicate a post to it.
Dr. Zimmerman said that writing a list 0f 200 things you are thankful for can be a life changing experience.

Rome wasn't built in a day

and apparently I can't make a three column blog in a day either...

Today I was looking at the websites that I currently have bookmarked as favorites, and deleting some of the ones i never go to anymore because there are just too many.  While I was doing this I found an old jem that I haven't looked at in a long time.

Quotes (or lyrics) can fix a lot of broken things...

... maybe that's it, but still: here is some food for your though:

"somethings fall apart so others can fall together."
-I don't know who this is by, but i LOVE it.

"I don't know that much about you, but I like you because you're TRUE BLUE."
-Bright Eyes (True Blue)

"Learn to be happy with all that you have while you pursue all that you want."
-Dr. Zimmerman

"Tonight I'll dream while I'm in bed and silly thoughts run though my head. About the bugs and alphabet and when I wake tomorrow I bet that you and I will walk together again. 'Cause I can tell that we are gonna be friends, yeah I can tell that we are gonna be friends."
-The White Stripes (We are gonna be friends)

"For all I know you want me too, and maybe you just don't know what to do, or maybe you're scared to say 'I'm falling for you'"
-Weezer (el scorcho)
I also have to put in a plug here and say that this is Pinkerton's namesake.

"I won't worry my life away"
"When I fall in love, I take my time. There's no need to worry when I'm making up my mind. You can turn off the lights but I'm still gonna shine, and I'll tell you WHY"
-Jason Mraz (The Remedy)
This song is very important to me for a lot of reasons. It got me through a lot and still gets me through a lot.

"This is the first day of my life, I'm glad I didn't die before i met you."
Bright Eyes (First day of my life)
I could seriously just post the entire song here, because that is how much I love it, but I think this line sums up a lot of it.

I could also probably go on and on with this list, but I think a hit most of the major ones, and I also think I should probably go do work.

nov 3rd...

had a lot of potential but it kind of went downhill. fast.

at least RADITUDE still came out.

And tuesdays/thursdays are always crazy. I guess I need to learn to print assignments off more than 10 minutes before class is supposed to start so i have time to deal with major technical difficulties.

And I guess I have to just accept the fact that I will never be on time to volleyball, even with the coach bumping start time back half an hour.

There is a silver lining to today though: i get to register for classes, and (I don't think I went public with this yet) I got accepted into the study abroad program I applied to! So come summer 2010, I get to go to Europe!

Today is a great day.
