the one in which she admits it

I am addicted to the internet. There I said it, now I'm going to go check my facebook.

Dark Chocolate Philosophy take two

On second thought, my previous post on the dove quote wasn't that awe inspiring. I think I just wanted to title a post "Dark Chocolate Philosophy"

Kent peer pressured me into blogging and I quote, "do it, DO IT" - hence this post.

I do that a lot. I type "thus, this post" as if I'm trying to justify blogging. Maybe deep down I feel vain? May deep down I AM VAIN.

Oh dear.

Bitter Sweet

I thought Truman week started the 11th, but in actuality it starts the 18th. That means I have a whole week more than I originally thought. I'm oddly excited, although still anxious to get school started again. It's another semester to prove that the last two weren't a fluke.

What else? Matt and I had a hot date! We met in a really uppity part of Kansas and had a wonderful lunch (french onion soup, stuffed shrooms, quesodillas...) and then we saw Dark Knight. (Jury is still out on whether or not it deserves to go under favorite movies on facebook - my immediate guess would be no.)

I have chance my Fall schedule at least 6 times.

I dropped Stagecraft
I dropped Theatre Practice
I dropped History and Lit I
I added Judaism
I added Hebrew Scirptures
I added LAS Calculus
I am going to drop either Judaism (300) or Hebrew Scpritures (400) to add French
Thus, I intend to add French if I can get an override...

Meh, truview is dangerous for the indecisive.

I want to take French because Molly said the program does an excursion to Paris and it would be nice to Parle Vu a little Franc-ay. (I can't spell French words yet, so give me a break)

I'll still keep taking Latin because it's a beautiful language... however it might be overwhelming to have 4 classes MWF and only 1 on TTH. Hmm.. or it can be nice to have all that time for MWF's homework? I don't know. I know that Historiography stops 1/2 way through the semester to give us time to write our research paper. (15 pages!!!)

I am going to write the best paper of my life for that class for several reasons: I want to be accepted early into Phi Alpha Theta, I want to be published in a historical journal, and I really like the feeling of writing a great paper. For now, I can't decide on a topic...

Ben Franklin: A Historographical Sketch Seeing the Founder Through Various Spectacles

Jesse James: Terrorist or Confederate Martyr

Anne Boleyn: If Only There Were Sonograms in the 16th (just kidding)


Lastly, can't wait for Truman!

Babysitting and Numismatics

Liam and Addison went down for their nap and aren't expected to wake up for two hours.
I'm making $32 to read and surf the net as they sleep.

Speaking of money, the basement flooded again. This time destroying $400 dollars worth of dehumidifiers and fans. Luckily, we figured out exactly what causes the flooding and will soon be digging trenches in the backyard. I just hope it doesn't look like WWI out there.

Also, I am founding an Art Theory Society called Ars Gratia Artis (Art for Art Sake). We'll meet at Java Co. once every other week and invite professors to discuss various aesthetic philosophies. Join or Die. (wait, wrong time period)

Speaking of! My dad emptied his lock box at the bank and showed me his coin collection. I had no idea he was into numismatics! Anyway, he has a silver dollar worth 2,500 dollars and a Mass. 1/2 cent dated 1776! The anthropologist in me was thrilled. Maybe Sam Adams used that very 1/2 cent to buy Indian attire or a lager? Perhaps some pissed off Patriot had to spend it on the Stamp Tax?

Dark Chocolate Philosophy

Dove made a good point:

"Failure is only the opportunity to begin again more intelligently."

Good news.

The other day my mom was like, "... and Lauren will be in London then."

I think that means I'm going.

I hate that when thinking of the word confession an obnoxious Usher song plays.


1. Sometimes I imagine people reading my blog and finding me adorable.
2. I self-depricate way to often in public. Last night I realized how awkward that is.
3. I went online shopping for school supplies. I really miss going to class.
4. Sometimes I think I'm a misanthrope. Which is oddly contrasting to my other side that hopes to contribute to humanity, if not help save it.
