I'm sitting in the library right now and it's about an hour until my final exam, when I turn on my calculator just to check. And, it happens. It gives me the screen that says it is low on battery strength. This puts me in a bit of a pickle, because I need it(absolutely need it) for my exam. And, I happen to find myself without my car nearby and near nowhere that sells batteries.
So I walk into the library and ask the clerk if they have any. She says that she doubts it and I said that I would even pay for batteries out of a calculator from the lost and found. She then asked me: " when is your test?" "Noon," I replied. "Well, you can borrow mine if you want, as long as you bring it back," She stated. "Really?" I stated in disbelief. "That would be great." "Sure, here you go," she said as she handed it to me. "Here, I'll give you my student ID as a sign of good faith." I said to her in thanks. "oh ok," she said as she took the ID, as if she really didn't need it.
I looked at the calculator and noticed a name was on the front. It read Kelly.
"Is your name Kelly?" I asked. "Yes," "Well thank you Kelly, my name is Matt." we exchanged pleasantries and I went on my way.
I guess good people still do exist...

I don't know how it's still up and I don't really care. All I know is that I've been waiting for this movie to come out for a while and after looking at the preview I know it will not disappoint. There is so much going on here.
1. I don't know what is going on with Samuel L. Jackson's little "boy band"
2. Warmachine finally makes his appearance, but not with the person inside that I thought would be
3. I wonder if any other heros like hulk will play into this movie. Remember how Tony Stark was seen in another movie "putting together a team."
4. Whiplash makes an appearance, I'd love to know how he gets those energy whips to work.
5. Scarlett Johansson also makes her possibly sexiest appearance as Black Widow. Perhaps a love triangle is afoot?

There should be a blogger search engine that allows you to search based on category and topic of interest. I do not know who would do it or how, but I do know that I would be on it like all the time. If one exists I have yet to find it, and blogger's "Next Blog" button up top usually leads me to blogs made by stay at home moms that think their children and families are the most interesting things in the world. Now I'm not bagging on families and children, but it's just not what I want to read about.
A few weeks ago I went out for a few drinks with some friends. A few drinks turned into quite a few drinks, and I knew that it would be wrong to drive. So, I did the right thing and walked home. I thought that everything would be fine since I parked in the free overnight parking lot. So, when my friends asked me to go out with them again I just walked down and left it there for another night.
Little did I know that I parked virtually one space away from the free parking spots. As a result I got two twenty dollar tickets that I have to send in. I was thinking about going in and pleading not guilty, but I read the ticket to see when my court date was and it was litterally and hour and a half ago.
Now, I am stuck paying a $40 fine for something ridiculously stupid. The cops in this town love to stick students with useless tickets so that they meet their quota and the town gets a bit more money. Now I have to finish this blog and walk over to my university's student center and send out forty bucks, and I barely have any money.

I love winter. I may be one of the few who does, but it remains my favorite season. Winter means relax and respite. It is still and quite. You can fall down without repercussion. I can stand outside and know that I am one of the few warm little centers of life in a bleak and unforgiving environment. I was born in the winter, my sister was born in the winter, my mother was born in the winter and my love was born in the winter.
Winter is the best time of year.
