I’m sitting at work bored out of my mind as usual with absolutely nothing to do. Sundays are so incredibly slow at this place. I really love this job and it’s great that I have this much free time at work but its amazing how long the time seems to drag. I always pick up a ton of food from this place up the street called Gourmet Heaven because getting a big meal is one of the few things that seems to pass the time. This time I bought exactly 2 pounds of chicken fingers, mashed potatoes, and pasta – the real, carb-packed good shit. But I’m definitely regretting it now… I’m way too full.
As soon as I get out of here I’m doing a little bit of reading, maybe watching a movie, then I’m going to try my hardest to fall asleep early so I can force myself out of bed in the morning for the first day of classes. This is going to be a really hard semester, possibly my hardest. I’m shooting for six courses this semester:
- Contemporary World Politics
- History of the American Family
- Quantitative Analysis
- Traditional & Modern East Asia
- Workers in America II
- World Public Opinion
This schedule is gonna kill me. On Mondays I have class from 9:10 in the morning till 7:30 in the afternoon, with only one 2 hour break starting at 1PM. Wednesdays are a little bit better because I get out at 5. Fridays should be easy – 9:10 – 1:00. I get Tuesdays and Thursdays off, but I still have to work at night. I don’t know what I was thinking scheduling a class at 9 in the morning. I’ve been sleeping till 12 lately and I never go to sleep before 2 AM. It’s gonna be hell adjusting my sleeping habits.
Our new student center is finally opening up this semester… it’s the one thing I’m excited about seeing tomorrow. We are supposed to be getting a movie theater and some kind of fast food chain
in there, so I think I’ll be able to stick around a
little bit more without getting bored. Maybe I’ll even get some homework done during my breaks. The lounge in the old student center was always too hot and the seats were uncomfortable, so I’d never stick around. The library is no better, they are doing construction so you have to listen to drilling and banging when your trying to study. I love Southern and all of its construction, it’s such a great learning environment.
