Ouch... Sights and Sounds

I was stung by a jelly fish when I was a child. It is one of those painful memories that will always be with me, like shattering bones in my hands or nose.

Exam in a little bit, I should be studying instead of blogging. I keep finding myself researching and reading about the markets. I wish wish wish I had more money to invest. Again the frugality issue rearing it's ugly green head. Need to stick to the plan.

I've been toying around the moving idea for some time now. Since my current living situation is going to end next month, I'll need to stay somewhere for the six weeks of summer school that I have left before I graduate.

I think I definitely need to continue with Spanish, and I also need to learn some Chinese. I saw a man scribbling on a whole blank sheet, rendering it full of characters this morning. The icons were very elegant even in their unrefined lines. I watched this program on travel channel about a chef that eats weird things. So cool, I thought it a shame that he could not speak any native languages of the countries he traveled.

The fox offered up her homestead for the six week summer term, but I think that will pretty much ruin our relationship because of my early habits and ass-holishness. I am such an atypical college student, mainly because I am so ready to be done with it. I am beginning to notice how similar we are, especially in the toot your own horn department. The fox always points out what she perceives as her behavior traits; she gave me some good advice regarding being a more closed book in social situations. I have difficultly taking advice from people these days yet at times she helps me realize how annoying I really can be.

Atlanta, that not so far off land of opportunity and culture that I came to adore in the few instances I frequented. I feel as if it might be my next destination this summer. How nice would it be to be alone in a huge city, not knowing anyone or glancing at a face that I know I've seen before.

Does anyone else ever get annoying with running into people that they know? Small talk is rather pointless, I usually employ the African American method of salutation known as the head nod. Much more effective than asking about what you are or aren't doing.

Nice...Reading this post after reading the "Mason" post I am thrilled that you are indeed capable of sharing your thoughts without using all of the SAT words that you know...you can put together phrases that melt easily like cotton candy on the tongue. Blogs should all read that way, nobody wants to think so hard, re-read a line again and again, or pull up a dictonary. Less can be more, this is a great example. Just saying...

Some people, do not need to pull out a dictionary to grasp the meaning of certain words.... us educated folk put phrases together that melt easily like cotton candy like it's our job son!

Gr, anyways I'll stop bantering your anonymous poster Mikey.

Big city, completely solo = pretty cool. Though, you being the energetic look at me type... before long you will know most of the faces surrounding you. LV is a huge city, but I've already found a certain core of people that I see pretty much on a regular basis. Despite my current occupation.

Good luck to you bro, you still with that little Italian fox?!

She got a sister? Oh and Tally TV coming to an end, eh?
