That being said, it's time to study for Philosophy.

It seems that I've been unfreinded by a couple folks. Serves me right for not updating on this account for a good while, I guess.
But, that doesn't matter. The reason behind my absence has payed off: I scored a 91% on the Managerial Accounting Midterm. BOO-YAH. That may not sound to terribly impressive, but considering the fact that it was the 2nd highest grade in the class, I'm pretty damn happy with it. Anyone else who ever tells me not to doodle in class can kiss my ass.

I LOVE snow peas. :-D
I am currenting devouring a plate full of bright green snow peas, pasta and fish. The dining all is normally a peice of crap, but looking at these little green dots makes my eyes happy. It reminds me of the Chuck E Cheese ball pits from when I was a kid... except they are all my favorite color.

The SUN came out today! I was sitting in my room doodling when, without warning, someone turned on the lights. I blinked in confusion for a good 5 seconds before realizing that there was sunlight splashing into the room and lighting up the world. I ran to the window like a little kid in time to see it peaked over a building and hitting a gnarled, moss-colored tree outside my window.
If this keeps up, we may have stars tonight!
Today I discovered that the sun did, indeed, read my livejournal. Further more, it is now taunting me with the knowledge it gained from doing such.
I was sitting in "Managerial Accounting" doodling in my notebook when the room suddenly become very bright. I wasn't the only one who, in my hazey zoned-out stupor, noticed the shift in brightness and a bunch of people turned towards the window only to be confronted with Mr.Sun. Not in his full, uncovered glory, but Mr.Sun was wearing a robe of mist at most. At this point, I believe Mr.Sun realized his nude self and ran away before anyone would say anything lest a sigh of dissapointment.
After flashing us one time, the sun felt the need to peak out from time to time just to remind us that we were locked indoors listening to ways to calculate an estimated overhead cost. Fast forward to class ending. Everyone bolts in search of sunlight, lunch, and an escape from the slideshow diagrams of overhead costs, only to find that Mr. Sun has once more been devoured by a familar grey haze.
God damnit! Hopefully it will come out again before it gets dark...hopefully. In any case, this haze can't last much longer...can it?
Stockton has had this grey haze surrounding the city for the last three weeks or so, and it wasn't until today that I realized that I don't remember the last time I saw the sun. The air quality here is atrocious, and winter normally brings this chilly fog which envelops everything that slices through whatever warm clothing you may be wearing.
This is alarming to me for several reasons, but the most immidiate is simply the cold. It's been cold enough to snow, but the humidity hasn't been right for rain. As a result, I've spent the last couple of weeks huddled up inside my dormitoy under a mound of fuzzy blankets. I fear my roommate may return to the room one evening to find that the blankets have eaten his roomate and all that remains of him are a pair of boots and some cthulu paraphenelia.
Beyond that, I just miss the sun. The smell, the warmth, the light; it's all been giving me this terrible case of wonderlust, and I find myself escaping Stockton to go dance, larp, or kill time elsewhere.
Give me a couple days of rest and a blue sky, and I'll be fine. It's the strangest thing being unable to see the sun during the say. There's light everywhere, mind you, but you can't tell where it's coming from. It's just this dull grey glow which doesn't cast shadow. It's unnerving. Earlier this evening, the sky peaked out in a small strip of blue amongst the dull grey. I even saw a couple birds. So, hopefully, I'll get some sun tommorow. Hopefully.

I want gadgets and diggles and squiggles and quids!
That said, I have FINALLY uploaded a couple New Years eve pics. We had a bit of a get together at my household, which doubled up as a going away party for my freinds Nital and Brian before they flew back to the military.
The details and pictures can be seen behind this ( lj-cutCollapse )
All in all, it was a good party. Everyone enjoyed themselves, and it was a good note to leave my freinds on.
From the ashes of my old plans, new plans have arisen.
Thanks for the offer, Nick, but it seems that I've sorted things out. Give Jason my regards, he kicks ass.
I will be having a get together at my house. Booze shall be present, though it would be greatly appreciated if you could contribute; I am, after all, a poor, starving college student. If you wish to join us and are in the area of Contra Costa County, please call my cell phone or msg me on aim. Enjoy the New Year!
My plans for New Years Eve have dropped through.
So, anyone have plans for New Years that they wouldn't mind having me drop in on?
