Return from the Realm of Organic Chemistry and Laundry Machines

December 22nd, 2009 blramo12
Remember, remember, the Fifth of November, it was the last time I updated my blog.

Excuse me while I cringe in horror for having the gall to forget you, Readers.

Once again, I have plenty of excuses to make for falling off the edge of the earth. Take, for example, Organic Chemistry. I thought of you while studying for that exam in the science library. I wrote a lovely introduction to an entry that went like this:

“After over a month, I should not be updating my blog right now. This should be amongst the last things on my mind, along with how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie pop, and if bacon will be served at Midnight Breakfast tonight. However, I could not resist sharing my sheer joy at not only saving more than thirty sheets of paper by not printing every copy I made of all the answer keys to all my former exams in organic chemistry, but for having finally found an empty cubicle in the science library, where I am now typing this entry, with several packets worth of reactions in front of me.

Tomorrow, at 2:30 p.m. I shall begin the very end of a year long sequence of orgo. I will be depressed, not only because I will be facing three hours (although Dean Jarret, my chemistry professor and class dean, says it should only take two) of a final exam, but because I appreciate organic chemistry. That’s right, I said it. After complaining, yanking out my hair, and staring with glazed eyes at the blackboard as Dean Jarret …”

At this point I stopped, remembered I had a final the next day, and pushed that entry off for some other night. As it is, bacon was served at Midnight Breakfast and the final did take me all three hours…because I plan my time inefficiently.

I regret to say that I left my camera cord at school, otherwise I would upload a picture of the massive laundry pile I did last week. I had $1.35 left on my card (you can put money on your I.D. and use it for things like laundry, instead of carrying around a bunch of quarters), which was enough for one load of laundry…but no dryer. It was very sad, until Kimball came to the rescue, decided I was a good worker, and gave me five bucks for student appreciation week. I spent all of it on laundry.

I’m at home now, a wondrous place where laundry is free, and while food might still come from a can, at least the can is opened with love. Enjoy your holidays everyone, and I’ll see you all in the new year!

P.S.- I stalked STAR (Student Academic Records—it’s where all of your important information goes, including housing, schedules, and grades) and finally have all my grades in! It’s been my best semester yet! Yay!

P.P.S- I keep meaning to point this out, but see the nifty little sidebar there? I’ve now included links to places of interest, including SaderLink and The Advocate. As we’re all on break, the sites won’t be active again ‘til the end of January, but you should still check them out! On SaderLink, click on the ‘Organizations’ tab at the top of the screen to see a list of everything Holy Cross has to offer. You don’t need to be a member to poke around, so poke away!

    I just remembered. I could’ve scanned your roomie picture with Cynthia and you could’ve put that in the blog as well. Oh well.
