…Misery loves a symphony…

Either I’ve been a busy boy or a lazy one either way here i am updating very far off of my every month watermark, oh well time is a precious commodity. Lets see, I guess the most significant things that have happened since my last update: new job, broken nose, still nowhere to live next year. I’ll start at the beginning, I got my Desk assistant job which in short means that i will be delivering mail, checking out movies, giving replacement keys… $6.50/hr here I come! Don’t get me wrong, my sarcasm doesn’t mean i don’t like the job, i do like it, this new position will be a much needed improvement over being an R.A. no longer will I be bent over the metaphorical R.A. lifestyle table. No late night lockouts, no “Chris, my roommate is dead” phone calls, or even “Chris, I didn’t mean to get caught by DPS with a suitcase full of drugs, will I get in big trouble” situations. By the way, “Props” to all of my residents who are currently reading this. So eventually i will be a D.A. next year which means a sturdy job to make car payments, yes, the person who didn’t get his permit until he was 17 and only got his license days before his 19th birthday will be getting a car, which if i can, will make it so i can live far far far away from any residence (DORMS! I’m rebelling!) halls. So that’s an improvement.

Second on the docket: my nose became broken, or cracked to be more accurate. While tickling a certain girlfriend’s feet, we’ll call her [G]essica (to protect the presumed innocent), I caught a right hook into my big nose… no, I wasn’t punched I was assaulted by a knee. I find this especially hilarious because for a week or two after [G]essica/Nose-gate as I called it I could make my nose make cool cracking and popping sounds. All of this mean a mean headache for a couple of days and about 4 visits to the Student Health Center where, incidentally, I was made fun of repeatedly and incessantly by nurses because my girlfriend successfully “Kicked my ass”. It was all a riot on my behalf, the doctor took it upon herself to prescribe pain killers and to stay away from [G]essica. All was good and funny until the tears came… tears of an ego being smashed into small emasculated pieces. No, but seriously folks I think it was a good thing, you know that they say “the couple that breaks bones together stays together”, oh what I’ll do for romance.
Finally, i’m still looking for someplace and someone to live with this summer AND next year, but I have some prospective roomies… both of which I am very hopefully for because both are very nice (clean) and cool (trustworthy) people. I just want out of the dorms… please.

Ps.- This website is the proud recipient of the “Sad Ty Seal of Approval,” mostly because Ty wanted to get on my webpage, but regardless it’s an award.

Everybody’s looking for Somebody’s arms to fall into

By some magical force unbeknown to me I seem to update every month to the day of the last update… strange. Currently I am rounding out Winter term, don’t worry German is still the bane of my existence but regardless I still manage to get a B+ on a quiz. Luck of the unlucky I guess. Things that are occupying my mind currently: school, roommate(s), house, summer. All of these things combined and multiplied to make an entertaining display of physical sickness and mental malaise. I know that once I have this summer and next year figured out (at least housing wise) that I can relax. i just need to know who I am going to live with as well as where, after that everything should fall into place. This summer should be interesting I am still waiting on to see if i have the Summer Desk Assistant position (which i may be interviewing for tomorrow), the stressful thing is that there are 6 positions open with 24 (if not more) applicants. The only thing that keeps me some-what confident is that I am the only applicant that has been a Conference Assistant and an Resident Assistant both of which the DA job encompasses. If by some remarkable force that my summer does come out as planned then i think it should be a really good summer… the only drawback: no Jessica. Anyways, other than that long list of gripes things are relatively decent for me, in the short view of things Finals are on the horizon after that Spring break. We’ll see how I do.
