Too much of life, can be a bad thing…

Dateline, February 15th, 2001… Three midterms are finished… Final grade on 1 out of the 3: B. Status of Chris, ecstatic. Life seemed to slam me from every which direction at the same time, mass amounts of everything was too much; midterms, the job, the kids, the wife, classes, and general ick that life can be at one point or another; but it has turned for a better, like I promised. Like I said, I received a ‘B’ on my Enviromental Philosophy midterms, for a 300 level class I’m happy, right now my Philosophy Dept. GPA sits right at 3.5, which means a Philosophy degree with Honors… whoo hoo. The other midterms, well, we will see how they come out, but I am not fretting over them. I am still amazed about my Environment Philosophy course, not the midterm, but the actual course… I am never bored in this class, and I swear, I have to have a dictionary to attend this class, Professor Lysker uses words I have never heard uttered by another human being (I think he makes them up, I mean come on: nexus… is that really a word? Nexus Nex”us, n. [L.] Connection; tie. Man is doubtless one by some subtle nexus . . . extending from the new-born infant to the superannuated dotard. –De Quincey.) Another thing that has me astounded is that amount of notes I take in that class, usually 10 – 12 full pages every day I have that class… totally unlike me.
Another stress factor that is now over is my applying for a summer job, I went through, did all the essays and today I went and had my interviews, which I think (or at least hope) went well. Hopefully by the end of next week I will be a summer RA, or a Conference Assistant. Well, more updates to come…

Chris 1, Gabe 10 OR Oh How I hate midterms.

A quick update in between everything… I would just like to say that “GABE HAS BEEN FALLEN BY MY SUPREME RACQUETBALL SKILLS!!!” That’s right, I finally one a game against Gabe. About time. It was probably one of the best games I have played in, and that’s not just because I stomped Gabe by two points. Other than that Midterms and RA programs are the main theme of my life… pretty sad, if you ask me. Where are the protests I always foresaw myself in… how about the insurmountable of camping I was going to be partaking it, where is that? I must have been confused with someone else’s life. I did have a little fun in-between classes today; I was walking back from Environmental Philosophy and my guys were playing frisbee in the courtyard. They beckoned me to join, and I couldn’t resist, so I got in a good hour of frisbee.
Tonight I am going to read a whole book over… Whoo boy. But, before I partake in such wonderful splendor of a whole book, I am heading to the gym to play some racquetball with Bowlby… I’ll show him to awe-inspiring racquetball talent that I poses… another racquetball corpses on the ever growing pile. I’ve got to stop winning, I can’t keep my ego in check. This weekend should be chalk full of fun and work… Friday and Saturday I am on duty… [enter sarcastic remark about weekend duty here], But Levi is coming in town for a dance competition (or at least I think its a competition), so I will be getting together with him and celebrate his birthday, which is today… he turns the big 21. Then Sunday I am going to Anna’s Orchestra concert, and I promised her that I would get all dressed up, suit and everything… There will be a camera around so I’ll put up the pictures for you my loyal cult members… er… webpage patrons…
On a final note, I am working on a new opening for the webpage, it is flash animations, take a look at it, let me know if it works for you (You will need the Flash animation plug in… if you don’t have it, the program will take you to it.”
