I went to the pharmacy, and I went to the post office, and I put gas in the car, and I bought peanut butter m&ms. And I colored my hair. Sort of. I have been trying to grow the black out, so I have just been letting the natural brown come in. But I got tired of looking at the brown, so I decided on red. Bright purply red. And even though I knew it probably wouldn't turn out, I colored it anyway. And the part that was natural brown is now a cool red. But the black part is still black. Even though the box said it would color black hair. Of course they probably meant naturally black hair.

I have an irrational fear of Drano. I am always afraid I might accidentally drink it. Not that it might spill and get onto something like my toothbrush, or that it might splash into my glass. No. I am worried that if it is left out on a counter I might accidentally walk over to it, open it, and chug the bottle down. All by accident! And by the time I realize what I am doing it would be too late!

In the same vein, today when I was drying my hair, I turned the water on to re-wet my bangs. While the water was on, I tightened my grip on the hair dryer because I thought I would drop it (because I might forget I was holding it) and electrocute myself.

Today was the first day of the second summer school session. I am taking a geography class on weather and climate. The instructor is a weatherman for the Austin CBS affiliate. He is funny and laid back, and his lecture style seems like it will be easy to follow. The classroom is wonderful. I know that sounds silly, but after having classes in some of the oldest, most uncomfortable rooms on campus, this room is a dream. Soft, movie theater style seats, with a large desk and lots of legroom. Yay. There are 4 tests scheduled (ack!), but none of them are comprehensive. And one of them will be dropped. And one of those counts as the final.

A few goals:
1. perfect attendance this week (normally I would say perfect attendance all session long, but I have to work on smaller more immediate goals)
2. an hour of reading a day- there are only a couple of chapters assigned for each day, so I should be able to complete them in an hour's time
3. finish the reading by 3pm

I think that's enough for this week. I already feel like I won't accomplish any of them (though before I wrote them down I felt like they were reasonably achievable).

Okay, I am taking my silly pink head to bed now.

JoeyHemlock, if you are out there, I miss you! Get your butt back into the LJ groove, you hear?

And quix, just so I can increase my chances of getting a comment from you...mullet.

Classrooms play a huge part in the learning experience. Some classrooms are just boring. It doesn't matter what is taught there, they are just boring classrooms. Guranteed to bring on sleep or coma before the halfway point every day. These classrooms are usually surrounded by white cinderblock. And have windows that have wonderful views of other buildings. There is no escape from these classrooms. Just sweet sweet semester end.

Small doable goals are the way to go! I know you can accomplish all three that you set. Especially perfect attendance for the week. I mean, you are going to see a famous peson speak. Just pretend you are paying big money each time you go see him. Kind of like paying to see a world famous orator. Like Al Roker. Oh wait, you are already paying big money. Yeah, but paying for college, isn't the same as paying to see Al Roker. As you well know!

Your pink hair looks simply fabulous!

You can't just invoke the word mullet and expect me to comment! As a matter of fact, I categorically and vehemently refuse to respond to such blatant pandering. I will say good day to you, madam.

Quixy-poo

P.S. If you're afraid of Drano, might I recommend Liquid Plumbur?
