L-O-fucking-L [Saturday, September 18th, 2004
Holy shit, I was so out of it this morning :P

I contest that my ill health and lack of recent sleep induced a condition not unlike being on lots and lots of drugs. Fortunately, I actually know where/when I am now. And upon seeing that it was still light out at 9am (don't ask), I was able to privitize my foolishness before (almost) anyone else woke up =D

I went to sleep at around 10 o'clock last night. Seriously. You know, as in the 10 o'clock that's actually a fairly normal time to go to sleep. Rachel and Wayne visited at around 11:15 (thanks, guys!), but I was just too tired. And then I woke up at around 2:30, totally disoriented. Once I was coherent enough to do the math, I realized that I should probably get more sleep. So I slept until 6:30. Not eight-and-a-half-hours-of-sleep 6:30, but twenty-and-half-hours/thirty-minutes-ago 6:30. The strange thing is that I'm still tired.
What the fuck? I wanted to get up fairly early and do lots of work today. So much for that. But I feel quite a bit less sick now, which is nice. And my biological clock is so messed up its hands are spinning in different directions, which is not so nice.
And I guess that's about all.

I am Prince Charming, the rapist uncle. I'm embarrassed, but my reaction was warranted. Fuck you. Fuck you all if that's what it comes down to. But the two of you, I know for sure ... I never should have bothered being nice.

Clap for me. I just took a ten minute shower.

A Triumph of Algebra [Wednesday, September 15th, 2004
A spacecraft receding from the earth emits radio waves at a constant frequency of 109 Hz. If the receiver on earth can measure frequencies to the nearest hertz, at what spacecraft speed can the difference between relativistic and classical doppler effects be detected? For the classical effect, assume the earth is stationary.

I stayed up until four in the morning Monday night trying to solve that. Camilo thought I was going about it the wrong way, and I doubt that anyone else in the class actually went through all this trouble, but this morning I woke up and knew how to do it. I tried to make it as neat as I could:

[ mood | tired ]

I'm going home at nine. My crappy dentist is going to try to fix my crappy teeth tomorrow at noon.
And I should be back tomorrow night. I hope so, at least. The truth is that I'm not really looking forward to going home. I'm just getting used to the routine here, you know? I mean, I very near have a drive to do work right now; feels odd, really.
I just feel like there's nothing there for me right now. If I get stuck there for a day, maybe I could hang out with April. I dunno.
Blah, I had a lot more to say when I started this, I swear.

How quickly you forget. Everything, you've forgotten. I think it's my turn. Good bye.

Day by day, with each incident, I grow more angry. Even jealous. Do you want me to hate you? Would that make it easier for you? You ... Why do I still think so highly of you, and so often, when you make me miserable? I still want to try to talk to you. Should I even bother?

You know what? Just fucking try to kill me.

I should get to sleep now, I guess. But none of my suitemates (who all have to be up as early as I do) seem to agree. Besides, I kind of feel like taking a walk. The front of the science building can be kind of nice sometimes at night. It's not exactly comfy, but it's seculded, and probably pretty dry. I miss when my suite was empty and quiet all the time.

Yeah, so, this sucks [Wednesday, September 8th, 2004
[ mood | blah ]

I call What the Hell on the following two items:

1) I can't send e-mail. Netscape, you suck. Actually, I was never able to send e-mail with this computer until ... June 6th, now that I check. So that means that I've never sent a non-web e-mail while at Adelphi. Does anyone else have this problem? Or are mail clients old fashioned or something? I guess it's time to think of a good Gmail name, then.... (Thank you, Maria.)

2) I can't stand to be alone for a few hours. It's pathetic. Just a few weeks ago I would spend days at time glued to my computer monitor, ignoring the outside world. Even when I started going out with April a few times a week, I was always glad to be home, back to my solitude. Yes, theoretically I should have been doing homework tonight but ... I dunno, I just didn't feel like it. And I got off to such a good start, too.... Well, sort of anyway. Thank god this is a short week, and that the next one is even shorter. I wish Tuesdays and Thursdays would just fall off the calendar. But they'd need velcro on the back, just in case you needed one for some stupid reason. You know? I guess not. I'm really fucking bored.
