Summer to Fall

Fall ArrivesIn Indiana they say that if you don’t like the weather then you should wait 5 minutes and see what happens. Well it’s not quite that bad in reality but as you can see, the weather changes from summer to fall quite rapidly. Of course this is happening all over the country and we’re not unique, but still the change is quite dramatic. At 2pm today the temperature in Indianapolis was 91, that is not only a record for the day but also a record for the entire month all time. In other words it has never been hotter in October than it is today. Amazing. Tomorrow 20 degrees colder and then 10 degrees less on Wednesday. Fall will arrive this week.

What day is it?

Seriously I think this semester is probably my hardest one yet. The work isn’t that hard, the classes definitely aren’t, it’s the schedule. Basically here’s my typical day: school at night, then home usually in bed around 2am, get up around 8ish, head to work after reading the paper, get off work in time to drive directly to school. Not much of a life huh? I just feel like don’t have time to do anything. I really didn’t know what day was yesterday most of the day, it felt like Thursday or Friday when it obviously wasn’t. The weeks just seem to drag on lately, but at the same time, the hours seem to fly by… does this make sense?

Friday Five

  1. What is the oldest object in the room with you? A dresser from when I was little
  2. What is the newest? A sweater I bought Wednesday
  3. What is your favorite object in the room with you? The bed
  4. What is the most valuable object?My computers probably, I have some basketball cards that are pretty valueable though…
  5. What is the ugliest object?That same dresser… Tea stains from many glasses sitting up there for a long time

Ben as you’ve never seen him before

Ball with the guys tonight. We beat the pants off of Ben!

Seriously though, we played ball tonight, good times. I’ve been feeling anti-social today for some reason. I just didn’t feel like talkin to anyone in particular, just time with myself. I read a little, worked on some homework and just chilled. A good day overall.
It’s the end of the semster, this week starts the big push until finals, they start on Wednesday for me, marketing, yea….
I’m goin to bed… later all.

Drama in the library

I’m sitting here in the library as is always the case on Monday and Wednesday afternoons. It’s cool and quiet, mostly. There is a man laying on a corner couch snoring, this man is probably one of the most annoying people I’ve ever seen. He’s in my MIS class too, always the one who tries to relate the topic of the class to his chosen profession, healthcare. I mean I understand that this is a campus is about as varied as they come, young, old, all colors. There are people here who are straight out of high school and people here that are elderly and merely coming here because they never got the chance to go to college in their youth. This man however is freaking annoying just about everyone here… A 30-something man just got up and asked the snoring man to either stop snoring or move. Perhaps a fight will occur between two middle-aged men after class in the parking lot. He’s leaving… thank goodness. Go sleep elsewhere, there are plenty of benches somewhere else on campus.
I also want to add that today is probably one of the hottest days in the last month or so. Weatherbug only says it’s 84, and the humidity is 40% but still it wasn’t this hot back in July when summer is supposed to be horridly hot. I dunno, maybe I’m bitter because I wore jeans instead of shorts… who knows. Off to make some phone calls and chill off-line for a bit….

You don’t know how it feels…

The last few days have been some of the weirdest I think I’ve ever had. First off, I’ve been hanging out with friends that I haven’t seen in years. One is getting married really soon and although we’ve talked off and on, we really haven’t done anything since my first go around at college. We went out to play pool and then to dinner, good times I suppose. Things never change really, but then again they do. Then I’ve been hanging out with an old good friend. Not much to say other than I’m glad we’re friends again. Then there’s the other person that I haven’t talked to in a long time that suddenly I can talk to again. She’s great at just listening to me and making me laugh, or at least see the right perspective on things. Things will never be how they were. That’s ok, I don’t want that, I want them to just be good.
The other big news is that the girl is no more. I don’t’ really know if there ever was a girl, but essentially things just didn’t work out. It’s hard to move on. It’s hard not to be selfish and keep everyone else from having a good time. I’ll be ok, and everything will be fine. I told myself and everyone else that no matter what happens it’ll all be ok and I’m going to make sure that it is. Too much is riding on this summer to let it go bad on something stupid. There are still issues to resolve, but time will work those out.
On a brighter note I do have tickets to the Indy 500 in two weeks. It should be a good time, we got great seats. Near pit road, just off of 4 with a good view of 3, 4, front straight and the entrance to 1. I’ve got my DMB tickets too. B is going with me, she’s a blast, I’m sure we’ll all have fun. Never been with 6 people before to a concert so it should be interesting. I guess I’m just too impatient lately. Things never happen fast enough for me lately. I just can’t seem to wait on people to make up their minds or for days to get here when we are doing stuff.
Like right now it’s almost 1am on Wednesday. I’m dying for the weekend to get here. I have no plans really whatsoever, just ready to see what happens basically.
I don’t’ really know what else to write right now. I guess I should get to bed. To everyone else out there reading, I’ll try to keep this up a little better.
BTW to anyone out there that wants it: I have info for Matt’s email and mailing address. If you want it, email me or leave a comment and I’ll get it to you. He needs letters so even if you don’t know him well, drop him a line. A soldier always appreciates a letter; Matt said he’ll write anyone and everyone that writes him. I’m sending a care package soon as well, if you have anything you’d like to send, let me know and I’ll get it to him. He needs anything to read, personal toiletries, snacks (nothing that will melt in 110 degree heat), anything else that would help make the next 14 months fly by for him. Thanks all
