Term GPA: 2.469

fall semester 2005


I’m happy with that.. except for the Academic Strategies one. “E” means I failed and it counts towards my GPA (as opposed to the F in Math Lab, which didn’t count for anything anyhow, it’s 0 credits, so I stopped going, and so did Ana so I didn’t feel bad). I kind of quit going to the acad strat class, which I guess is kind of ironic, since the class is about, well, academic strategies. I learned that lesson.

If I hadn’t failed, my GPA would be 2.675. That’s not that much better, so I don’t care.

The B- in philosophy was the hardest B- I ever worked for. I’m proud of that. If I had studied for the final more, I probably could have pulled off an A. I thought it was on a different day.. so I found out about it the night before. Oh well! At least I don’t have anything to hide from my parents! (for the first time since 7th grade, when I hid my report card under my bed and didn’t show it to them and then they went to parents night and found out I failed everything)

Next semester goals: better prioritize school over work. Only take classes I like. Few morning classes as possible. Improve writing skills. MAKE MORE FRIENDS. Right now I think if Ana quit I would hate my life. THANKS BYE

wherein i go to the movies and complain about college and girls

Movies that sucked:
-Chicken Little
-Jarhead
-Aeon Flux

RENE PICKED ALL OF THESE OUT. Do not go and see ANY of them. Harry Potter was good enough to offset all three of these, though.

I lost my literature textbook so I haven’t been to class in a week. It’s my favorite class and it’s making me sad to not be there. The only college class I like, and I can’t even go 🙁

We’re watching Blade Runner in my english comp class, for some reason. It doesn’t relate to anything, at all. Good movie though.

I’m glad John-Michael gave this album a perfect score. I used to listen to it a lot but it got deleted from my MP3 player. Or rather, I deleted it myself. Along with everything else. At least now I don’t have more Beastie Boys tracks than I’ll ever listen to, or 300 Morrissey songs. Anyhow, The Exit rereleased their album and it’s a good time, check them out, please.

Having an (unrequited) crush on someone is the worst feeling EVER. Especially when it’s been going on for so long. I need to meet someone. Please.

Hello. Things are going swimmingly. I’m picking out classes for next semester and it’s kind of nervewracking, especially since I’m a freshman, by the time I go to register the classes I want might be filled? I have a tentative schedule picked out though, and if I can get it, it would make my life. I’m nervous about the future but I think it will be fun. Some literature (intro & american); basic music class; intro to logic; photography I. All afternoon classes, nothing on Friday.

I’m still intrigued every day by the beauty of autumn; I don’t know why I never noticed it before, the other 17 times I’ve seen this season come around. I enjoy waking up and driving to school, especially if my car is warm from sitting in the sun, and I don’t have to rush. The little things.

Tonight was Gratitude at the Axis. Drove in, made it to Boston, then I took a wrong turn (or 9) and ended up in Chelsea, nowhere near our intended destination. A Burger King, a bridge, and walking in circles to find the T stop, and eventually we got there. It was such a great show. I can’t even tell you. I haven’t smiled that hard at a concert in forever. “Lukewarm” is a wonderful song.

Sometimes I feel like I want a girlfriend but I’m really just too lazy to find one.
