Mele Kalikimaka

Seems like we don't live in New England, lol. It's been brisk, but a very calm November none-the-less. Not that I'm complaining!

It's amazing how quickly a year - and for that a semester - can go. It feels like just yesterday I had gotten home from a vacation in Florida with my friends. The weather has changed slower than the hours, but I don't regret any of it. There have been times this year when I wasn't really sure what was in store for me. Things have happened that I never would have expected, including losing someone dear to me, but at the same time it feels like I've re-lived a year of my life. Maybe that has to do with what I missed out on last year, or maybe it's because my life is falling into place. No matter what the reason, I love this weather and that Christmas is just around the corner. It's my favorite holiday, because for a few weeks it seems like everyone is that much nicer to one another, that much happier to share in love and peace with mankind. We are given a short time during the year to live in a more serene, utopian society. I only wish others were as willing to make that feeling last like I am.

Is age all it seems to be?

I can't believe someone called me old tonight. I mean, really? lol

I was at a hockey game with some friends, and the girls behind me were talking about how they were getting old. "We're almost 22...oh my god!", "Yeah, do you know how old that is?!", "Eww...". So, of course I had to turn and say something. "Thanks guys, you made me feel real good."

"Oh, why are you 22?" And when I shook my head yes..."Oh, I'm so sorry. I feel bad for you." WTF?!

It's November? Where did my year go?!

On Thursday I found out that the pre-calc class that had become the bane of my existence was unnecessary. Apparently to fill the requirement I could take the second class which didn't require pre-calc. Needless to say I shot over to registration and dropped the class. $320 may have been wasted, but at least the class can attest to the uselessness of the teacher. As I was leaving the office a boy in my class turned and asked if I was still in it. I chuckled and said no. He then told me he had just dropped it as well, and was told that three people had dropped before us. What started as a class of 40 is now less than 10. True, he is very smart and a nice guy, but he just can't teach. Hopefully his class averages (and the fact that students are dropping like flies) will be enough of a hint to the chair to get rid of this guy. He's not worth the money they are probably paying him.

All my other classes are going well. Something strange happened Friday, though. I was walking to class after breakfast and as I got close to my building I hear, "Hey." I turn and see a guy from the class I was going to. I said hi back and we chatted for a bit. Nothing in is your project going? what's your major, etc. Then after class was over I was walking to the elevator and he walked up next to me. "Sorry, forgot to catch your name." I already knew his because the professor has made jokes a few times that he can't know who Steve is unless he sits in his usual spot, lol. Not that this whole thing was strange on its own, but we haven't talked all semester and now we were having conversations? Then yesterday at the library I was working on a project, listening to my ipod, and I felt a tap on my shoulder. Steve was there and we chatted for a bit until he decided he would sit at the computer next to me. I'm not sure what he did but once I was finished he packed his stuff up and walked me out.

Since it was Halloween we talked about the night's plans. I didn't have any because all my friends were occupied with other things - that meant I'd be at home doing homework. When we separated he suggested I should go out. I told him I'd try and he responded, "I hope so." Hmm...*shrugs*. Could be nothing, could be something. ;)
