God, in his infinite wisdom, still finds me amusing. Or so I keep telling myself.

Classes here are amazing. We acctually have teachers who know about what they're doing, and care. I've been really active on campus, and not just socially. I went to a LAC on the constitution yesterday, and chapel this morning. Mind you, I've been social, and I'm proud of that. Kollege is full of eccentric and odd people that I get on amazingly well with. There's a lot less drama here, and I'm able to be more of myself with the people I'm hanging out with. It's an interesting thing to discover. Anyway, I have to prepare for my econ class. Until next time.

I finally have all my information from Kalamazoo. i'm stuck in a two person room in Hoben Hall. Lucky me. The shower is a short jog across the street, and all the furniture is made of cast-iron and bolted to the floor. Yes, that includes the matress. I've gotten in touch with John P. Boyd also. He goes by Pat. As a general rule, I like people who go by their middle name. He has a decent taste in music, and is familliar with such games as DDR. Oh, and he plays tennis. I'm looking forward to meeting this kid.

In other news, I'm leaving next wednesday for LandSea. I get to go hiking in Onterio with kids from K-zoo for two weeks. Like Elliot Wolfson.

And tomorrow my father and I are headed down to Kalamazoo to set my classes for the next year or so. Oh, and we're supposed to talk to my financial agent to figure out hot the hell I'm supposed to pay for K-Zoo. Our best option ends with my entire college tuition being paid for by Tom Cruise. no, I'm not joking. Sad isn't it?

Normally I'd be looking forward to the road trip, but it is my last day off before I head down state for a week. That I'm looking forward to. The wasted day-off to talk to college guidance people, not so much.

I really don't want to think about it, but college starts in about three and a half weeks for me, give or take. It's a frightening thought to leave behind everything I know and move onto new things. I guess it's okay though, there's still so much about Manistee I don't know, and so many people I've failed to befriend that it seems like this place is as strange to me as Kalamazoo ever could be. It always throws me off to look back on the people I run into and say, I could have been that person's friend. So much could have been different all these years. It always makes me wonder if I've done something wrong, or if I could have done something better with my time. But that is all for later.

Today my dad and I sat around and watched Dogma and V for Vendetta. He loved V more than I thought he would. I knew he'd like it, but I didn't think he'd like it that much. He always enjoys the crazy anarchist messages in pop-culture. It gives him hope to think that the youth of America can be concerned with more than just the money in their wallets and the price of their clothing. I guess it gives me hope too, but I still wonder how many people see it as political commentary over an action/adventure movie. The world may never know.

I cannot believe how incredibly stupid you are. I mean rock-hard stupid. Dehydrated-rock-hard stupid. Stupid so stupid that it goes way beyond the stupid we know into a whole different dimension of stupid. You are trans-stupid stupid. Meta-stupid. Stupid collapsed on itself so far that even the neutrons have collapsed. Stupid gotten so dense that no intellect can escape. Singularity stupid. Blazing hot mid-day sun on Mercury stupid. You emit more stupid in one second than our entire galaxy emits in a year. Quasar stupid.

Ah, tonight was fun. The day was less so. As is par for the course these days, I put in a full day of work, re-stocking shelves and painting various bits of the exterior of the store. A quick lunch was taken away from Taco Bell. I died a little inside. As the store closed, however, my aunt and uncle showed up at the store. I knew they were coming. That always has created a sense of dread since my father and my mom's brother went into fisty-cuffs over political issues. That memory is one I hold with me, and as much as I try to look away, I'd love to see it happen again. We went out to sit with them by Manistee Lake and enjoy some appitizers before heading to the Tuscan Grille for dinner. Sitting there took over two hours. 5:30 until ten to 8:00. I had fun talking about what I'm going to do in college and so on, as my relatives are stuck on the University of Michigan something fierce, remembering that I wasn't exactly accepted there...

Dinner was interesting. My father kept suggesting that I hit on the waitress and get her number. she was one of my mom's art students and a friend of mine from a few years past. Ah, if only my father could make everything that awkward. Then Danny and Rob showed up. And stayed for dinner. It was really my mom's idea, but it got me out of those awkward family moments, and gave me fun people to talk to. And my dad gave my job to Rob. No, I still have to show up tomorrow, believe me, I tried. Once I go to K-Zoo, he gets to be the paint monkey and go-for. All in all, I had fun.

After that, I left my family and caught up with Danny, who was busy at the Insta-Launch camp ground while we finished eating. We made our way to Paul Barto's eventually, and stayed there with some M.C.C. kids I hadn't hung out with for quiet awhile. It was fun, but around 1:40 I decided to ditch and get some sleep for work. That obviously failed.

My face hurts. A lot. And it's square-shaped.

I wish I would just hurry up and heal. I feel so useless, lying here and bleeding. I feel as though the most important part of my summer is rushing past me while I try and recuperate. Dammit.

The most fun aspect of it all is my total removal from reality. The drugs and the pain have lead to a sense of apathy that trumps everything. I no longer can see the repercutions of my actions, which leads me to believe I'm going to do something stupid soon. Take pitty on my poor broken body, mind, and soul.

So I just got back from having four large holes placed in my head. And I really do have a high tolerance for pain. Anesthesia never hurt anyone...errr...helped a lot with the pain, and the knocking me out. Unfortunately, I'm going to be stuck at home for 24 hours, and in a few days my face will swell up like a watermelon. Sounds like a blast, right? Anyway, this means I'll be missing the CHIC going away party and the Hustler's concert tonight. Two things I was looking forward to. Oh well. I'll just have to have a party here! With me bleeding from my mouth in pain! Errr...watching Kung-Foo Hustle! Tenative plan is for around 7:30 or 8:00, and if you don't feel like concerting, or would like to give a friend some moral support and watch an awesome movie, show up here.

I know the name is Kung-Foo hustle, but it's more of a comedy with fighting thrown in to advance the plot line...

I love my family. I really do. But one of these days their lack of organization will be there undoing. People have recently been asking after my A.P. scores. Those of you who know me or have been in classes with me know that I couldn't care less if I tried about what grade I was getting;

"Oh, they posted a new grade sheet!"
"...And?"

However, I did finally ask my mom if there was any unopened mail lying around the house. She looked at me with a slightly puzzled face, and inquired as to what I was after. I told her that I was wondering if my A.P. scores had come yet. Oh yes, a few weeks ago, why? *Grumble* I thought things like this were supposed to have some importance attatched to them. The long and the short of it is that I did not do as well as I thought I would on some parts, and I did a lot better than I ever hoped to on other.

Blakey-Shell told me that he expected me to get a 5 on the Calc test. I always hate letting people down. I feel like I did the best I could, and a four is nothing to be ashamed of. That's a solid score, right? Sure! I still have no idea what K-Zoo accepts in the way of A.P. scores...I'll know soon.

Mrs. Solwold never really liked my writing. At least that was the impression I got over the years. The projects I worked really hard on were graded down, and the last minute, thrown-togehter papers went over nicely. I still say that she's only given me three 100%s the entire four years I had her as a teacher. I had pretty much signed the English exam off as a throw away.However, I guess my last-minute instincts kicked in. Or the A.P. people liked my writing. Little does it matter. If Kalamazoo doesn't like the four in calc, they'll have to at least give me points for trying on my five from English.

If I didn't know my parents that well, I'd blame the postal workers.

Blood in my mouth beats blood on the ground. [Jul. 13th, 2006|08:56 pm]

So tomorrow I am lucky enough to get my wisdom teeth ripped violently from my face. Doesn't that just sound awesome? Of course, I have to stick it all out with a smile on my swollen face and a song in my heart, as I forced a friend to suck it up and go on with life after having his teeth pulled. Ryan, if you see me in the next few days, know that I feel your pain, and I'm sorry I didn't just let you sit at home and bleed. As the sadist I am, I am greatly looking forward to testing out my high pain tolerance. Right now, however, I should really be sleeping, as I have neglected such a feat for a few days. It puts a erally removed perspective on everything in life, and honestly that's helpful for this week.

Having fun as always.

Fireworks at one in the morning are the most fun. Especially roman candles. At other people. I think I singed Nathan's hair. I'll just say he deserved it, and call it good. My friends are awesome. Unfortunately, I am almost out of fireworks.
