My life for the past 3 weeks to followCollapse )

All that business discussed I have tomorrow with iX, her boyfriend Sean, and [personal profile] sharptooth in the International District to look forward to as well as Anthro-Con on the 14th! Excitement abound!

I'm going to make this brief since I have a great task ahead of me.

I am officially a college graduate! Bachelors of Science in Zoology, which I am very happy with, but what now? I don't have a job lined up and I'm quite confused as to what direction I'd like to take; a fact exacerbated by my feeling of being inferior and childish as of returning home. I have pinpointed one of these reasons to be that my bedroom is more or less a compilation of all that was Alisha when she was 13 to 19 years old. It's all cheesy anime stuff and far too much Pokemon clutter. I have thus decided that a new beginning is in order. This starts my purge cleaning of my childhood room. Really, I knew this was coming. My interests have just changed as a person. Also I've realized that having the massive amount of clutter that I found enjoyable as a child now just causes me anxiety and makes me feel I can't get anything done.

So I have about a week before anything is expected of me around the house, I'm hoping to get this massive clean done by the end of the week.


--> Remove All Posters/NicNaks From Walls
--> Put Away All Figurines
--> Get Rid Of All Excess Items
--> Update Bedding
--> Rearrange Furniture
--> Purchase New Furniture To Assist in the Storage and Organization of CD/DVD/Book Collections

And my top motto: GET RID OF USELESS CRAP

There will be progress shots posted on tumbler, starting with this one.

Graduating in 3 weeks and today is my father's birthday which is happy. Is it terrible I can't remember how old he is? Okay he was born in 1961 and it's 2012 now so he's ... 51?!?!?!

Yes, for some inexplicable reason I am riding a mood high right now. Also, it's Mom's Weekend in Pullman which means everyone is escorting their parents about and the campus is buzzing. D&D is cancelled tonight so I guess I'm going out to the bar to do field observations on the mom's of college students.

Wish me luck. :3

So I have another of my brilliant college experiences to relate!

Just went to the bathroom to find the nice girl who lives down the hall from me mopping up her boyfriend's face. This poor guy looks mangled. His left eye is swollen and dark. He's also got a bloody nose and a few other extraneous cuts on his face. There's a bit of blood all down his front and he's holding back the rest that might come out of his nose.

My first response is "Oh geez, wow. Is he ok?"

My nice neighbor replies, "He got in a fight."

I take a moment to appraise the damage done as he turns to look at me then I say, "I hope it was a worth while reason!"

Her response is, "It wasn't. It was over a $10 whiskey."

At this point the guy looks me straight in the eye. To put this into perspective, I've met him before. I set up his internet at the beginning of the semester since he visits my neighbor so much. I know that he got kicked out of his frat a couple months ago and had to live in the girl's room for about a week. He's a really nice guy. I remember he walked into my room and the first thing he said, with a dorky grin on his face, was "MAN! It looks like a house in here!" which I took as a complement though I'm still not entirely sure what he meant. The point is he's been a nice polite guy every time I've seen him. Not terribly bright, but nice. He's about an inch or 2 shorter than me, but athletic. Definitely has that frat guy look about him.

Well he looks straight at me and without blinking states, "He got lucky, Alisha". Mind you he's still holding his nose and looking like a beaten, wet rat and all I can think is "Yepppppp I'm surrrre he did" and "Wait he remembers my name?" and last "Shit, I don't remember his name".

I treasure these interesting encounters. Makes me giggle and keeps life from being boring. Cheers me up even though I've been terribly sick since Sunday. I have a clinic appointment on Monday. I hope I'm feeling better by then, but if not we'll see what the doctors say.

Now, I realize this isn't the first time I've found myself dragged in with thespians by a boyfriend. It always to surprises me though. I love theatre (watching it that is not participating), but I figure theatre people are too cool and aloof to want to talk to me. Which isn't true at all. They're really a bunch of misfit goofs that I fit in quite well with, but sometimes I'm shy.

Anyway, Glen took me along for the campus theatre group's improve show they do on the weekend and then to the party afterwards. Their improve was funny as usual, but the party was really interesting. Met Matt Kenyon there, which was REALLY ODD because he was in the class ahead of me in high school. This is something of an accomplishment since my high school had about 200 people.

We we got to talking about the Beatles (The focus of my life, I KNOW, SHUT UP XD) and he said, "John is the best Beatle!"

To which I had to stand up and shout, "Are you crazy? George is the best!"

His reply to this was, "Ok George was the best musician, but John was the best BEATLE!"

Now we didn't get to finish this arguement because a guy across the table popped over and was like "Paul is the best!" which prompted the guy next to us, who clearly thought the topic was silly and had gotten in the way of our game of Kings Cup, to shut us down by saying "Nah the best was totally the drummer!"

So this brings me to the question I asked iX yesterday after this event: What does being the "Best BEATLE" even mean? If we're giving out awards and George gets "Best Musician" does that mean that Paul gets "Most Successful" and Ringo gets "Didn't Piss Anyone Off Too Badly" and John gets the compensatory prize of "Best Beatle", because we couldn't think of anything else! Which I can, like "DID PISS THE MOST PEOPLE OFF", but not "Best Beatle".

I am of the sick. I slept for 15 hours (6pm to 9am today) because I was super tired yesterday and felt like I was going to collapse. I skipped my 6-9pm lab to do this, something I am not known to do unless it is absolutely necessary. I woke up this morning feeling quite chipper if not a little like I'd gone to bed in the desert. My energy quickly dispersed though, and by 10am I was sweating all over and almost completely out of it. Rebekah made me get orange juice for lunch (Rebekah is our Assistant Hall Director, she's sweet as pie.) Which I felt like I was going to drop and several times during lunch, forgot I was holding.

So I'm dizzy, obviously running a fever, and spacing out. Naturally I continued to go to my classes. I sat through Parasitology with my zune on low volume listening to Abbey Road, ran back to Regents afterwards for a multi-vitamin and a cup of tea, then back out onto campus for Animal Development lecture and Statistics lab.

I'm not quite sure how I'm still functioning. There is a mandatory track and field thing tonight for Reslife staff, it's a homecoming event. If you know me you know I have never had even a teaspoon of school spirit so BAH homecoming. I'll just go and take pictures I guess.

Summary: I am dizzy, low on mental and cognitive processing skills, and the ending instrumental of "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" starts running in my head every time I start spacing out and forgetting where I am.

My god, my mind is so frazzled. I can't focus on school work I should be doing. I'm just floating on this cloud, mind in limbo. It's not a nice feeling, just a tired, fuzzy, unable to concentrate or give a damn feeling. I keep thinking of heating up the curry in my fridge or what I'll do tomorrow afternoon. I can't work right now. I've submitted my vet application so that is off my shoulders, and I convinced Kelly to drive me home the weekend of Halloween, so that is solved also. I thought cleaning my room would make me more productive, so I did that. Laundry and dishes are clean and put away.

So lethargic...
