Okies, now I'm tired. I only got about five hours of sleep last night...I'm not sure why my body decided to wake me up at 8:30, but it did. xP I signed up for classes yesterday at UMSL! And suprisingly, even though I registered late, I didn't have to take many evening or morning classes. I'm taking a class in European civilization up to 1715, an art history class, an Eastern Asian civilizations class, Japanese I (!), and astronomy. That's seventeen credit hours, the most I can take as an incoming freshman, but I'm considering dropping a class because everyone - from my college advisor, to my mother, to my brother, to my friends - have told me that it's a seriously full plate.
I can drop a class within the first week of school, and not have to pay a dime for it, though! So I think I'm going to drop my European civilizations class...no offense, because I do love European history, it's just that I just went through a European civilizations class my senior year of high school...I don't really feel like repeating it! xP And I'm still going to minor in German, it's just that I have to take some kind of foreign language placement test in order to qualify for German II (since it's a sophomore level class). So I'm just going to take that next semester, along with my freshman comp and math class. Whee! =D
So afterwards I went to the campus bookstore...and proceeded to buy 500 dollars worth of books for all my classes. o_o; My European civilizations class required SIX books. Another reason I'm considering dropping it. xP But seriously, that's crazy! I've always heard that college books were expensive, but when I heard that price, I was stunned. xP
In other news...Miss Lauren called last night, asking me...no, more like TELLING me...that I had to take her boyfriend-thing back to the airport with her tomorrow. With me driving, of course. She has this insane fear of driving on the interstate, but what's especially annoying about it is that she won't ever admit to the fear, she just makes up silly excuses. Last night I told her that I had to work. Sorry, I need the hours! I can't just drop MY life to take her boyfriend-thing to the airport. That's her responsibility! And she was like, "I don't know the way, though!" Well, I didn't know the way any better than she did when I first went to go pick him up from the airport, and I still lived. She was seating right next to me in the passenger seat the entire trip, too...wasn't she paying attention to the way I was going? *shakes head* But I stood up for myself, which made me proud, because I've always been basically a carpet for people...very passive and quiet-spoken when it comes to standing my ground.
Mickey came over last night as well, and we hung out for a couple of hours! ^^ We went to Dairy Queen and got these waffle cone things that are freaking good. Except, I got dumping ice cream on myself. I was all sticky. ;_; And then she played some Silent Hill 4, which according to her, absolutely rocks. Now that I've finally heard a positive review of the game (most people didn't like it), I decided to go ahead and give it a try! ^^
Then Alex called around 9:30, right as Mickey had to leave. So I basically switched off friends. xP He came over with two movies, both of which I'd never seen - Natural Born Killers, and Zoolander. Natural Born Killers was good, but I think it would be better enjoyed if you were under the influence of certain drugs. xP And Zoolander was awesome! Owen Wilson was just absolutely hilarious in it. He's so...oddly adorable, with his broken nose. xP
Alex left around 3:00, I collapsed in my bed, and then proceeded to wake up at 8:30. Why does my body do this to me? *sobs* Oh well, I guess it's for the best! I wanted to run some errands in the morning. Like possibly taking my...off-blue car to be washed somewhere. It's quite dirty, especially since we haven't been getting ANY rain. xP *does a rain dance*
