Here one day and gone the next

Yesturday morning I got up at around 5a.m. to get ready to go to school. The only reason that I got up that early was because I was maximizing my study time for finals week and 6 hours of sleep is more than enough for me. Anyway, I walked outside without my jacket one and was meet with a cold and dark morning. I told myself that this unseasonable cold was just the morning thaw and that it would go away soon. Six hours later, I got up from studying in the library to get another coffee and looked out of the big bay windows in the library to see a veritible blizzard outside. I'm not joking around when I tell you that visibility was at about 50 feet.

It continued to snow into the night and before I went to bed there was a thick blanket on everything. Nothing had changed when I got up this morning. I went about my day and began studying. However, I've just taken a look out the window to see what it was like and discovered something. It is still chilly, but there is no snow to be had anywhere! Only in Potsdam could you be 70 degrees farenheit at the start of the week, down to the low 30's in the middle of the week with a blanket of snow and then back up into the 70's by tommorow(weather man's prediction). Seriously, has Potsdam done something to anger God? Or maybe this is just an omen? I wonder what it stands for? Probably, change.

And theres been quite a lot of that in my life lately...

Alternative Energy

I have a test at 3:15pm today that covers my alternative energy course. Now, I love this course for one reason only. It is sooo easy! Tests and homeworks are done in groups! And the tests arn't cumulative which means that it only covers half of the year on the test!

This his great because not only does he totally ignore the book(so I won't study from it) but there are litterally less than 30 pages of notes I have to cover for the final. And not every page of notes has equations on it!

It's 7:30am now, which means I have over 7 hours to study 28 pages of notes. Seriously, that is the most incredible amount of study time ever! And, did I mention that I got a 92 on his midterm because it was so freaking easy?

This is a test I'm actually not stressing about...

The One Day I Don't Bring A Coat

It has been blisteringly hot all week and I've still carried a jacket each day. So when I got up this morning and headed out the door I thought "Well I don't want to sweat so I might as well leave it at home." Then I brave what I thought was just the morning cold and head to school. A few hours later I looked out the window to see a veritable blizzard! It's been so nice out and it went and snowed on me! And right before senior week! All I have to say is that this snow better be gone and it better be warm outside by Sunday. Because if it isn't, someone is going to pay. I don't know who will but someone will.

I need it to be warm because I've been waiting pretty much all year for this. It has been a tradition of mine for the last five years to laze around outside in the awesome weather right after finals. And, it's been a tradition of mine for the last three years or so to eat a lot of bbq with my friends and get totally ripped. And, while it isn't the healthiest thing to do with my time, it certainly is the most fun. And, its going to be my last hoorah before graduating.

Oh yeah, I'm graduating in a week...

I've Entered Dead Week

Testing is comming around again, and this time is the last time! Well, in actuality I'm probably going to be taking courses again at some point in my life. However, my undergraduate career is drawing to a close and I could'nt be happier. I've been here 9 semesters, and I've had quite enough. I've sweat, bleed, and stressed over this place and soon that will all be a thing of the past.

No more homework! No more school projects! No more finals!! It's all I can do to keep myself from salivating at the prospect. Soon, my life will consist of work time and personal time. It will no longer be the draining lifestyle I've become acustom to where school time could be any time, day or night, and where personal time takes a back seat to everything else.

Not only will I actually have time to pursue personal interests and my science, I will have time! Right now time is a commodity that is managed, traded and scheduled to the nth degree. Soon, time will be less restricted and I will be less stressed. Life is going to get easier soon.

And I wouldn't have it any other way...

Waiting for the scanner

I'm sitting in the library right now waiting to use the scanner so I can digitize some notes. The reason I am waiting is because the Clarkson library only has one scanner, and it is usually in use. And, right now there is a guy using the computer it is attached to so that he can write a paper. He no doubt decided to use that specific spot because it has a nice chair. However, he is shafting everyone else that needs to use that computer by doing so.

So, I'm just sitting here and blogging waiting the ten supposed minutes that he said he was only going to take. Oh, and look at that here comes the ten minute mark. And, he still hasn't gotten up. O.k. maybe he just needs some time to get his things together and sign out. Nope, turns out hes just being rude. Anyway, I've got to change computers because a creepy girl is staring at me with a strange "I've gotta have it" look.

Hopefully I'll get the scanner some time today...

Half Hearing

I have an ear infection and it sucks. It's in my left ear and my hearing is basically cut in half. Though, I should be used to this because I've had them on at least an annual basis for my entire life. In fact, my entire left ear drum and tubes are sunken below the right one. And, I still have tubes in it that allows for normal fluid transfer. The only problem is that the tube doesn't act perfectly and from time to time there may be water or fluid build up that promotes bacteria growth.

And, waaa-bam! I the hearing in my left ear gets turned off, I experience constant mild pain, and what would be screaming in one ear is a whisper in the other. It really throws off my center of balance to, not to mention the fact that it effects my driving skills. So, for now I'm just keeping it clean with cotton swabs and waiting for my doctor's appointment tommorow.

People are just going to have to make sure to speak into my right ear...
