Dear Diary,

Nice to see you! Today was a fun day. I am happy to report that I am feeling quite comfy at school this quarter, much like I've settled into my niche. I stay to myself most of the time, but instead of closing myself off, I have kept myself open to talking to whomever. This has resulted in some interesting conversations here and there, yet I can still remain by myself for my Me Time between classes.

I got to read some today, while I ate my salad. That Nynaeve!! Always getting herself into trouble! I also found the book that I checked out from the Phoenix Library back in 2002: a workbook on music theory! It's quite thick, and I'm working through it diligently. So far, it's been helping to catch up in my classes.

My classes are HARD! I am so used to taking whatever classes I want and being able to ace them with no problem. (Oh, Diary, you WOULD bring up summer quarter, wouldn't you! Shame!) Because music has always been my passion, I felt that these should be the easiest classes yet, but I am struggling in there, yet flying through my psychology course. (We're learning about toddlers now!) My music classes are most challenging, but challenging in a good way. Professor Trousdale continues to remind me that there are no excuses for anything! You do or do not, there is no TRY. He has helped me to remember that I need to take responsibility for my actions.

I went to band practice finally! I had a great practice with Ben, James, and Mike, in our grooooovy practice room (even with a lava lamp and other mood lights, Diary! You should see it!) I am so very pleased with the new music that is being created, and it makes me happy and thankful to be a part of it. I greatly look forward to our next album! I also need to get with some people in The Couve and find out what the general policy is for bars/etc. in the area for bands with members under 21. Silly teenagers! I really want to get some shows in MY neck of the woods, so that MY friends can come! Silly 15th Street Pub laughed in my face when I asked the possibility of playing there. I wonder if there are any other suggestions?

I also want to create a slightly different flyer to hand to all my friends and coworkers that makes it look like we're not just a bunch of high schoolers! I'm an old lady, Diary, so I'm like a high schooler times TWO!

It is now 1130 pm, and I have finally finished my homework. I hope that Professor Trousdale will be pleased! It's too late to practice my solfege, though, so I hope he doesn't call on me in class again!

Anyhootiehoo, Diary, thank you for our lovely chat! I do so hope that you keep in touch!!!

Re: Sorry for not commenting on your post but...
It says "I saw some smoke it's time for lunch look at the street!" from an episode of MST3K. The kids had actually said three sentences - cannot remember what they were - about watching a superhero kick ass or somesuch (I so need to watch the episode again, was it Prince of Space?) and they had commented and laughed how none of the sentences had anything to do with each other.

I don't get the saying about do or do not, there is not try. If people don't try and fail, how will we ever learn?

I agree completely. Granted, I don't even really TRYYYY half the time, so I'm a big candidate in the "do not" area. SHAME ON ME.

Somehow, I'm imagining you psychoanalyzing toddlers in class... even though I know it's all Erikson and Piaget, but still. lol Psychology classes are fun!

Hm... YOUR neck of the woods? Um... I could probably hook you up in Riverside (the little sister's actively booking and promoting again)... which, of course, you certainly SHOULD take advantage of!

I love that I know how to pronounce "Piaget". I loved my psychology classes sooooo freaking much and would love to take many, many more.

I should at least go back to school and finish my Associates, if nothing else.

I'm also randomly wearing my Auburn t-shirt today, so take THAT.

I always rather liked Nynaeve, but I gave up on that series awhile ago. Jordan really pissed me off....there are too many characters and its too long; I couldn't remember who anyone was when I tried last. I don't really care about the white cloak's perspective, just about the core characters that left Two Rivers. *grumbles a bit*

I almost feel as if I need to read it with a notebook and pen so that I can take notes. The first try, I got through until about part way through book ten, the second found me only getting about halfway through book seven, though it was a bit refreshing the second time through, as I was able to actually see and recognize when certain people came into the story and how, vs. the first time when I was scritching my head, wondering where the hell certain people came in.

I've since vowed to not try to read them again until all the books are released. I love how Jordan had insisted that the final book would be released in only one book, no matter how many pages there were involved, and they're doing what? Releasing the final book as a trilogy. *headdesk* Jordan must be rolling in his grave.
