I’m supposed to register for classes tomorrow (a day late cause technically I’m still a sophomore) and the whole world just collapsed on top of me.
a) cause all the classes I want to take are literally on the same day and time. like, how does that fucking happen???
b) i changed my major this morning from english literature and communications to communications with a concentration in journalism and professional writing. yay right? fucking no yay. apparently by finally figuring out what i want to do with my life, i further screwed myself in the butthole. i’ve condemned myself to like 2 more years of this godforsaken hell at least. because out of all the communications classes i’ve taken thus far, only two count. which pisses me off even more because i’m virtually done with all my gen ed requirements. fuuucccckkkk me.
I’m trying not to panic. I’m going to wait until tomorrow and talk to my advisor, then panic.
I need more things to do on the Internet, cause what happens when Tumblr slows down? Homework? lol jk
I just randomly decided to listen to a few snippets of the Kidz Bop versions of some songs. Why, why would any reasonable human being do this to their kids?
Was this some kind of secret military torture in another ancient culture somewhere? I had to promptly turn it off for fear that I would accidentally summon the Dark Lord

So after turning on my laptop to get some last minute homework done, it informs me that I should “consider replacing my battery.” Well, considering that I just replaced the battery a little more than a year ago, I’d beg to differ. So I’m starting to think that maybe everyone is right, and it’s time for me to consider replacing my laptop. My dad’s been trying to buy me a new one for ages, so I guess I should finally take him up on that.
Any suggestions? I’m currently using a Compaq Presario notebook that I got in 2009, so anything really is an improvement. I’m not a big power user, so I don’t need it to be a super laptop either. For a minute, I had my heart set on the Chromebooks (pretty good functionality for a low price, plus, they don’t overheat!), but after reading some reviews, I’m not really feeling the whole web based Chrome OS thing. I’m basically looking for high functionality (I like to stream a lot of music and videos and every now and then a game or two) and good battery life at an affordable cost. I’m also in the market for an external hard drive if anyone wants to throw in a suggestion on that front too.
The upside of being one of the only students left in your dorm building during Spring Break is that the wifi is fucking awesome lol
Well, this one has to go down in the “cannot believe this shit” hall of fame. Remember how I mentioned last week how I have terrible luck with phones? Well I wasn’t kidding. Less than a full week later and this bastard falls out my pocket and completely shatters. Like, you’re fucking kidding me right? This has to be a joke. I just…I fucking can’t. And now I can’t get a replacement cause it’s my fault that its broken. Fuck
So for Christmas, my parents (my dad mainly) got me a new phone. If you know me, you know that I have the absolute worst luck with phones like ever. Here’s the thing: there was nothing really wrong with my previous phone. It was just an older model; I couldn’t update the OS anymore (it was still on Froyo for all of you who are Android fluent), so the phone was becoming slow and unresponsive, especially if I tried to update my apps.
So I got this new phone, and for about the first two weeks, it was awesome. But around the third week, I started noticing a problem with the external buttons. By the month mark, the power button had stopped working completely. Days later, the volume buttons followed. Miraculously, I still went for another week or so like this. Until the phone completely died. Luckily, I was still under warranty, so I just sent for a replacement. Which I went to pick up on Sunday. One problem:
This is the phone I have
And this is the phone they sent me
Problem. So I called them that day and reported the mistake, and today my second attempt at a replacement came in. Hopefully this time, it’s the right one. Even more hopefully, this one doesn’t malfunction within weeks and actually works as advertised. Hopefully…
I dreamed a dream in time gone by, when grades were high and fucks worth giving. I dreamed no test would make me cry, I dreamed that curves would be forgiving. Then I was young and unprepared, and A’s were made and used and wasted. There were no extensions to be begged, no nights unslept, no effort wasted. But the finals come at last, with their laughter soft as thunder, as they tear your grades apart, as they turn your dream to shame.
