2007 - Year of the GUITAR SOLO
Well, winter break was a damn blast, and now school has started. I can't complain, I've been waiting to get back to CofC for what is a year now.
I started winter break off working down in Charleston until the 21st. Previous years I usually dip out right as the Christmas rush comes, so I figure I would stick around and earn a few more bucks. It paid off, cause I got a Christmas bonus out of it (which I promptly blew on Christmas presents and trivial things in Greenville, but Hell). So from there I went to Greenville, which I enjoyed more than I thought I would. Got to hang out with everyone like J-Bum, Skeez, Jacob, and the whole rest of them. We blessed the bus, played monopoly, drank heavily, saw the sharks at the new seafood place, played more than our fair share of LAZER BATTLE!, played video games, went out to the bars, and just dicked around in general. There was a lot of other stuff, but I have somehow already forgot about it. Feel free to remind me if I missed anything important. I also enjoyed spending time with our family, because I have always taken for granted that we'd all be together for Christmas, and as we all get older, I never know which one will be our last celebrated as a family. I hope that wasn't it, but if it was, it was as good as any to end the tradition on and start building new ones. You can't stop change, only try to flow along with it, I suppose.
Anyway, from Greenville, I went to Columbia for New Years and had a blast. I crashed on Josh's couch for a few days, played some Edward Forty Hands, lots of Geometry wars, much Intersteller dancing, and lots of other stuff. As tempting as it was to just move in, I had to make my way back down to Charleston.
My classes don't seem too bad. My Comm Theory professor seems to know what he's talking about and takes the class seriously, but he is pretty witty and on his toes (however corny). I have Baginski for German, and I already love him. We had to go around and "Tell him everything he ever wanted to know but was afraid to ask" and I told him I enjoy reading he says "You enjoy reading? I have some good books for you then, ja?" and pulls out the text book. Corny too, but I like him. My history teacher is off the wall and tells stories a lot, but she said our class participation grade hinges on us interrupting class and talking. She says she doesn't care about what, to tell jokes if we have them. Just anything to interrupt class.
Anyway, this year will be better than the others and I plan on making 2007 a badass year.
p.s. What is the easiest way to communicate with someone standing beside you?
