Really, I'm not. I became obsessed with FFR again and have gotten deeply embedded in that community so I haven't been on lj at all in a long time.

A lot has happened. I think the last time I posted was right after spring break. Vegas was unbelievable. Strip clubs and copious beer were involved. This quarter was easy enough. Behavioral Econ was one of the best courses I ever took at NU. I wrote the last research paper I'll ever write last week for that class. It was a study on procrastination. It's really good and I had a good time researching and writing it, even if I was up until 6 finishing it :p. I was in a poetry class which sucked actually. The prof liked to tell us that we were wrong in our interpretations of poems which just seems off. She has that air of superiority about her that is just really off-putting. She should die in a fire :D. I was in a film class which was even worse though. The jackass that taught the class didn't show up to his own class every now and then. It's only held once a week and it's 3 hours long so that's kind of retarded. I've written 4 papers for that class and they were all on films and readings we hadn't discussed. They were all more or less completely generated by wikipedia.

Dillo Day was fun. I drank a bottle of wine and passed out at like 6:30pm. JRho brought a buttload of med school kids from Feinberg (NU's med school) and partied at our place for a while. I don't know, we all passed out far too early and the weather sucked so whatever. I didn't even go to the concert even though the Roots and Cake were there. I don't even think I would have been able to get in. The rain forced the concert into Patton (gymnasium) and the line was ginormous and not moving.

I graduate in like 2 weeks. I have an apartment in Madison where my job is. Address:
8410 Isaac Drive Apt 204
Junction Ridge Apartments
Madison, WI 53717
I should probably call movers soon to get my stuff up there :p. Finding the apartment was fun. I spent lots of time during winter quarter researching places so I found the place I wanted in only two trips up to Madison. One of those trips was an entire weekend and I stayed with some distant relatives who I didn't know existed that happened to live 5 minutes from where I'm going to live. I know they're distantly related because they're nice people :p. I really like this place I found. 1bd1bth, 810sqft, high vaulted ceilings with ceiling fans, full kitchen, w/d in unit, etc etc, only $755/mo. which is ridiculous. It's so cheap to live in Madison, especially out in the burbs where I'm going to live. The city apartments were all small and didn't have half the amenities I wanted, plus they were more expensive. And I suppose I'll always be a jersey boy out in the suburbs. I'm right near a mall too which makes me happy.

Really right now I've just been hanging out with people I won't get to hang out with much longer. Yesterday a bunch of us went downtown for all you can eat sushi (awesome!). Tonight we're all going to get together and watch Purple Rain at Lambda Chi. With any luck, we'll all start crying all over each other.

As far as dreams for the future go, I've suddenly been turned on to the idea of teaching econ someday. I haven't decided whether I'd rather teach at the high school or college level though. I think both have their own unique intrigue, but I just don't think I'd be able to get into a decent PhD program with my grades (I have a 3.127 cumulative and econ GPA). I could probably get into a first or second tier education program though. However, I really don't know if a school like Rutgers would turn me down if I applied there. I mean, NU econ is one of the top econ programs in the country, and unlike other top-tier schools, there isn't massive grade inflation here. Did you know that the average GPA at Yale is like a 3.7? I mean, sure, they're smart, but that's an A- on average. Classes here are belled to a 3.0 so if you're ever getting a 3.7 in a class you really destroyed it. I've gotten like 5 grades at a 3.7 or higher during my entire time at NU. Meh, whatever, I've got a few years to figure out what it is I want to do. I do, however, have to get rec letter confirmations from a couple more profs and set up an account at university career services to hold them for me.

Anyway, I guess sorry for neglecting lj for the past two months. Did you miss me?

I don't have time to do a post on spring break, I'll do that later... maybe in a couple days or something, but I do have time to do the meme I said I'd do some two weeks ago. Sorry Ally!

01. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
02. I respond by asking you five questions of a very intimate and creepily personal nature. Or not so creepy/personal.
03. You WILL update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
04. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the post.
05. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.


1) What is your favorite Disney movie?
I assume you mean an old one, because I think Invincible would be my favorite now. I was obsessed with Pinocchio when I was really little, and I think Aladdan was my favorite after that.
2) What is one thing you've always wanted to do?
Turn Super Saiyan?
3) What is the most reckless thing you've ever done (on purpose)?
Unprotected sex?
4) Would you rather hit every red light for the rest of your life or always be wrong?
Too easy. I'm sure I'd catch on at some point that I'm always wrong and start abusing it. "There's no way in hell there's a naked supermodel in my room waiting for me to ravage her." ::open door:: ::smiles::
5) Would you rather have one leg ridiculously shorter than the other or have arms that don't bend?
With prosthetics the way they are these days, the shorter leg wouldn't be much of a hindrance. The arms on the other hand, would make it impossible to eat, drink, go to the bathroom, or do much of anything without assistance.

Finals week cometh. On my faceth. ...that's just gross.

Due to NU being run by a bunch of racist asshats, Reading "Week" was shortened to Thursday and Friday last week, meaning I've barely started studying.

The itinerary:Collapse )

Best facebook group evar. Supreme kitty cuteness ftw.

Oh and in other news, the Vegas trip is set. I fly to Vegas the afternoon of the 17th and we're staying at The New Frontier Hotel & Casino (second shittiest place on the center-strip, because the shittiest was full :D) until I fly back to Chicago on the morning of the 21st in order to pack (and sober up) for I fly to jersey on the afternoon of the 22nd. I'll be there for only a day or two, and they will be spent packing my shit in the car to drive back to Chicago before Monday. I don't know if I should go for it in one day - it would be about a 13 hour trip or so. I mean, I could do it, and it would give me one more day in jersey, but I don't know how much that means anyway, since jersey's lame. then again, i don't know when I'll be back in jersey next, as I'm kind of moving to Madison directly after school, so maybe I should stay. eh, i'll see what triple-A thinks when I get home. I wish my car had a gps - i get so paranoid about getting lost. It doesn't look like a tough drive at least. There's basically two roads that I spend 350 miles on each of the total 800 miles, and the other roads are in jersey and illinois and I know them. Haha, this'll be the first time I've seen western PA, Ohio, and Indiana. I will actually be driving right by Gary, should be exciting!

bah, problem set, later!

Only updating because it's been a while. [Feb. 22nd, 2007|09:33 pm]

Yea, I know, I never post anymore. It's not like nothing's happened in the past two weeks or so, it's more than I'm never at my own computer and am therefore extremely productive. I'm not even at my computer now. I'm at the libes, about to give up any hope of reading this history article because I already spent a good 5 hours on this material and I can't stand it anymore today.

So what's been happening... Tacky Prom happened on Saturday at The Keg. Sucky venue, but killer party as always. The idea is that everyone goes in extremely tacky/ridiculous 80's garb and all the music played centers around that theme. It was great fun. Is it weird that I think all the girls totally looked hotter in 80's style? I mean, I've partied with all these girls before, but some of them were on fire that night. This one chick, Jennie, has one of those t-shirts with the neck ripped wide (it was a pong shirt!) over a tank-top and had a headband and a pony-tail and god was she smokin'. Too bad she's out of her mind, as most chicks seem to be here...

What else, my and maybe 8 other guys are gonna go to Vegas for Spring Break. It's going to be epic. Doubtless daily drunken debauchery. Isn't prostitution legal there? Yea, it's going to be fun. :P I think we're staying at this famous hotel, Circus Circus. I still need to buy my airline ticket...

The radio show continues to be a blast, although I doubt I have enough A material to last another quarter, not to mention that my schedule is earlier in the day next quarter. I'll probably just ask for a near-impossible-to-get time with an added note that I wouldn't mind giving the spot to someone else if there's a conflict.

Oh yea, my final quarter at NU is coming. I registered for courses on Monday, but I didn't do a "My schedule can beat up your schedule" entry yet because I imagine it will change, mainly because (I can't fucking believe it) a course I wanted filled up. It's for my major too. I think I'm first on the waiting list and there's already a couple spots from people dropping it (fucking athletes get to register before anyone, even majors, and hold classes for their fucking idiot friends by squatting on the spots - yes, I'm bitter). Anyway, I'm trying to get into Behavioral Econ (I reged for Law and Econ while I wait for a permission number), and I reged for this high level english course really just to experience one before I graduate, reading/writing poetry, and an Ingmar Bergman film class. I also plan on sitting in on a computer programming class. I'd take it pass/fail but I actually placed out of it 4 years ago so I can't :P So that means... 5 classes?! I only need 2 to graduate, but most of these are just for fun anyway.

So what's coming up... this Saturday we're going to get drunk for Caroline who turned 21 yesterday, which should be fun. I'll probably go to Meow (awesome improv show) tomorrow, hopefully with someone. I swear to God, every time I run into this chick she talks to me like I'm the second coming but then she never returns my calls. She is out of her damn mind. Bah, when (not if) she doesn't turn up, I'll find someone else to go with.

Overall either college is getting to be less stressful in general or I'm finally growing up or something. I don't recall the last time I spent 5 nighs a week in the library from like 4 until closing, but it really doesn't bother me anymore.

I love all you silly bitches. Later!

found a freaking youtube GOD.

They are all dbz vids that remix scenes, using more or less the same footage over and over again, while adding random batshit crazy references to other animes and shit to make them absolutely nuts.

His vids, from oldest to newest:
Nine Thousaaaaaand!!!!!!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TBtpyeLxVkI
I hope my body can take it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LbSjKjjObLg
The Balls are Inert http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6cS18yG8DJI
Addendum to Balls using that awesome court game for the DS http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NR0Yn8u-f3k
The Whole Universe is Going to Die! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GnPN2yOup9E

My favs are definitely Balls and Universe

In other news, midterms are done, for now. Everyone thought the econ midterm was the hardest shit ever - except I thought it was rather easy, which is probably a bad sign, but everyone I talked to afterwards ended the conversation with "we should study together for the final" which is probably an excellent, excellent sign. however, now that midterms are done, i really don't feel like working for the rest of the quarter. oh yea, tune in this monday for a special "Fuck You, Fay" edition of The Punk Rock Elite Not Admitted Show! Endless angry autobiographical (and extremely petty) songs!
