I got a special care package today from home, which rules. It’s one of those exam week care packages that your parents can send through the University if they love you.
Apparently mine love me this year. I didn’t even know they could do this last year.
Anyway, I got a nice bucket full of candy (a “fuckit bucket” for all you David Sedaris fans out there [“when life brings you down, just say ‘fuck it’ and eat yourself some motherfucking candy.” -the Rooster]), and a fruit basket with my favorite fruit pears.
I already ate one of the pears, so I better stick to the Oranges and Apples for a couple days so they last me a little longer. I sure do love pears.
Most of my updates recently have been pretty cryptic or just quotes so I think I’ll make this a long one, starting from friday ’til now.
Friday was the Faultlines/Blue Bottle/Brian Jones/other band show at the Potata. It was pretty fun. Lots of drinking and music making going on. I actually took it pretty easy on the drinking for once. Well, only because I was hungry and I can’t drink a whole lot if I’m really hungry. So when I went home at 4 in the morning I was pretty stark and sober. It was kind of weird. I’m not saying it was a bad thing or anything, but I can’t remember the last time I walked home from there sober.
Oh yeah, as me, Tab, and Bre were leaving we watched a car accident. Some drunk bar chicks almost crashed into a tree at idling speeds and then slammed into the back of a parked sports car. We all got a big laugh out of it. It was pretty funny.
It was a fun night though.
My friend Sarah came down from Waterloo Saturday to see me and my friend Mike. She brought a friend named Jim with her. He was pretty cool. We hung out, went for a walk around good ol’ Iowa City, rented the movie “Trekkies”, watched it, got drunk, and shot the shit.
It was pretty low key, but it was fun. Not too excitement packed, but low key and intimate.
Hmmmmm. What the fuck did I do yesterday? Oh yeah, I slept a lot. And not much else.
I’m done with class now. This morning in my creative writing class we watched BLADERUNNER which is one of my favorite movies. I was excited. We had to write a response after watching it. I think mine is going to be a lot more in depth than my instructor inspected since I’ve seen that movie more times than I can count. It was a fun way to end that class though.
Classical and Biblical Lit went ok. I’ll have my Quotable Kupersmith book done soon. My friend Keef went into a class the other day that he has with Professor Latham. Professor Latham told him something that will be the forward for my book. He said “Let me tell you something about that man- HE’S OUT OF HIS FRICKIN’ MIND!” I must meet this Latham fellow. We share the same last name. Must meet him. Perhaps I’ll have him for a class now that I am officially an English Major.
Oh yeah. I’m all signed up for classes next semester.
Here’s what I’m taking:
Literature and Society
American Indian History and Politics
American Indians in Film
And I think that about wraps up this entry.
