…I’m dressed like a schoolboy, but feel like a clown

Well, its hot. Actually its been very hot and I’ve never been a fan of heat, so these past couple days have been a temperature torture. I wanted rain. Rain is good, rain is fun to run in, but I can’t control the weather, well, at least for right now I can’t. Do you know what is unpleasant? Being poo-ed on by a bird… I can now say I that I’ve been poo-ed on… I feel like a better man for this. On to other tales…
I might have mentioned it before, but I will mention it again: I had been planning a trip Mt. St. Helen with my hall, found the campsites, reserved them with $140 on my credit card, got three vans reserved for the trip, got all the catering forms to get food for people… and after I have done all of that guess who shows interest in the trip? NO ONE! I find it absolutely amazing, people were a buzz only a few months ago about the trip, but now, only one person signed up. What a crock. The previously stated, coupled with the many inappropriate and foul things residents are doing to me, I decided to cancel the trip, and go with Shelby and Karen on their hall trip to the beach on the same weekend. There are two parts to this, one is that I am happy I will not be driving 10+ hours to and fro from Washington, but I’m also sad that this trip fell through, because I was going to make this a big camping blow out trip for the end of the year, I was talking to my boss about getting sparkling cider and stuff like that, but… I will be happy to spend some time with my friends at the coast, that will make me forget how my hall has turned to become very unpleasant.
Speaking of Shelby, I had another apex of college experience: After a stint at the library Shelby and I got something to drink (her: Dr. Pepper, me: Iced Mocha) and went and sat by a waterfall that is tucked away from everything else on campus. Shelby sat there and worked on a paper, while I read The Shipping News and played in the waterfall. It was a really nice, it was also kind of funny, because Shelby witnessed a couple’s first kiss. I found it to be a riot that she was being a peeping tom… the whole situation was hilarious. We stayed long after the sun had faded from red to orange and then disappeared, we sat there under the light of the lamps, that is when Shelby said that this was her idea of college, I don’t think I could have agreed more.
