Classless fool is me

Today turned out somewhat better than I expected. After my lit hum class which I was EASILY able to make meaningful comments during (for a variety of reasons none of which was that I had finished reading the text) I met up with an old high school aquaintance and we stood outside the supermarket talking for about an hour. I remember him best from seventh grade when we were in the same homeroom and we used to take the bus home together (later on in high school we ran with different crowds and sort of drifted apart) but he seemed friendly enough and we chatted about old times and the present. He reminded me that despite my skewed perception the U.S. is not the "Real world" any more than any other country is. I don't know why that should be neccesary to point out but it definitly was an awakening I needed so the conversation was productive. We ended promising to exchange emails and maybe we will. It's good to know that my early college problems can be gotten over by at least SOME people. He's a good guy, I should keep in touch with him, even though today was SUPPOSED to be partially about switching from high school self to college self and he didn't help with that. But that's not his fault.

Having spent the time that I had planned to use for a light lunch and some exercise chatting with Nemanja I just checked my email and headed to my next class, Japanese history. It was a pretty good intro class, nothing got said but the class looks interesting and the professor seems pretty smart. Plus I get to learn about the Meiji era and Revolution and I've wanted to ever since watching Rurouni Kenshin, so that's a plus. Nothing spectacular there really.

Afterwards I just headed home and grabbed some grub then went to my Statistics class (after watching the end of the People's court of course) Statistics basically sucked, the teacher was this Chinese woman who spoke english remarkably poorly and as quietly as if she was whispering to someone during an Opera, not teaching a class of murmering college students. She also drew TINY graphs on the board that nobody could read. On the upside she said that she would be being replaced by a new professor next week, and a guy from my Spanish class (Adam) is in the class so at least I'll know someone to email for homework or help with tough problems. He's an economics major as is Hee-Ann, wierd coincedence since they are both GS students and near the same age.

Besides I understood most of the concepts anyway and as long as I work decently hard I should be fine. I won't, but I'll probably give it a try.

Anyway that was a pretty bland entry, not up to my usual standards, but sometimes just recording the events of one's life is enough. I should go exercise now and maybe get some dinner, then I'll be back with some possibly meaingful thought. But today is about getting back into a rythm not about being deep. I do enough navel gazing anyway, sometimes you just gotta live.
