Let me just dig my own nerdy grave.

So... I've come up with a few creative endeavors for the summer... including but not limited to making my own Tivo. Because I'm amazing. And I can make it super easy and cheap. And no subscription to pay for. And yeah. I'm sweet. And it can run right from my computer :) I'm really excited. And yes, I know I'm a nerd. Whateva.

If my life were any busier, I think I would explode

Currently listening to: A video about class
Currently reading:nothing at all

Okay, so I have had no time at all to blog, but I would have to agree that it was pretty pathetic that Bean had to find out about how amazing I was in the drag show from Cat's blog. Anyways, it is pride week at Central, and as the new Co-President of the GSA, I have a lot to do... As soon as someone gets me some photos from the drag show, I'll post them here. But until then, you must wait :)

I was contemplating skipping my last class of the day, ASL, since it is pointless to go anymore... and because I have so much to do, but I guess I'll go on the off chance that we actually learn something today. Then I have BioLife... which I pretty much do to relax anymore, because its just me and my iPod. I usually end up watching a movie or something on it, so it is quite a nice break from the day.

I'm really looking forward to tomorrow, we're having a Banquet for Pride Week, followed by a Formal. I have a pretty dress. Don't tell mom I bought one ;) Butttt I planned for it in my budget for the semester and I'm sewing the wrap/sash thing myself so its cheap. I need to learn how to use a sewing machine this summer, I really want to be able to sew my own stuff, I think I could be really good at it, especially since all I do anymore when I am bored is drawing dresses in the margins of my notebooks and on napkins. I'm such a girl that it hurts. Also, I want to incorporate recycled materials into making stuff... because I'm kinda green :).

Okay, I guess this is it for today, I have to pretend to be paying attention to the movie we're watching in class today.

Oh the privileged children of the towers...

So I have a meeting in the Carey Hall Lobby today at six, for all of you non-CMU students, it is one of the 7 residence halls that make up the towers, a giant-mega complex of dorms, a dining hall, a store, a computer lab, a video rental store and classrooms. I figured that I would show up early and go downstairs to the Towers Computer Lab to check my email and inevitably, facebook. As I walk downstairs to the lab, I rent a video from the video store, then make my way to the basement. Looking ahead of me, I see the lab has undergone some construction, now it houses a Java City Coffee shop. The Towers residents are too spoiled. Anyways, unphased by this merger of a computer lab and coffee shop, I walk in, only to be stopped by a deskie.

"Do you have your chip ID? I need to scan it."


"Are you a towers resident?"


"Oh, then you can't use this lab, this is exclusively for towers residents."

Blank stare.
There are about 20 computers, mostly macs, and two of them are occupied. She decided to be nice and let me in, illegally. Why, as an over inflated tuition paying student at CMU, can I not use one of the many computers my tuition money has gone towards purchasing? Oh Towers. I hate you.
