So, today we're suppose to be working on shit for Word+Image. We have to find a stereotypical ad in a magazine and comment on various aspects of it. Yippy. So, basically the whole class has their various favorite magazines out and are reading articles instead of doing the assignment. I'm reading this article in a borrowed Glamour magazine about a girl that had a car accident. She was driving on an icy road, felt something wrong was going to happen, prayed to God and then BAM! Hit some black ice, spun out, landed on her side. An SUV didn't see her and ran right into her, knocking her into a ditch. She passed out and woke up out of her car, some passer by had taken her out. She was unscathed, her car was even driveable. But then a year later, one morning she woke up and couldn't move a muscle. Couldn't speak, could only stare. She couldn't explain what happened and she told her parents to not take her to the hospital. WTF?! When you can't MOVE it's not a good idea to just fucking sit there and hope it will go away. Especially after you've had an accident. Especially when it lasts ONE WHOLE YEAR. She's a fucking idiot ... it took her 3 years of not doing anything, not being her back-packing self to realize she needed to go to a neurologist. Damn, that's why I'm glad my mom's a nurse. She knows if things need serious attention and whatnot.

Wow ... 5 years after her accident, she has enough money to make her own CD album? o_O O ....kay

Wow, this stuff is the good!

I wonder what's seriously wrong with me. I've gained 40 pounds in 4 years. That's more than double the freshman fifteen spread out through 4 years. I just don't see why I don't have the motivation to stop eating shitty foods. I've tried to quit smoking, I thought that was a start. I would bike to class every now and then, I walk about 2 miles to class 2 times a week, which will be changing to 4 or 5 times a week this summer. *sigh* How did I fall into this slump? I'm begining to wonder if it is depression ...

I haven't worn a bathing suit in 3 years. I want to be able to feel comfortable with myself to do that again by the end of this year. Yeah, like MY motivational thoughts will do this ...

Wee! Not doing work! But teach likes my ideas. Will work on them when I get home with my NEW PHOTOSHOP/ILLUSTRATOR CS2 :O wewt. First project (last of the quarter, unfortunatly) where I get to see what this new CS2 is all about. So far, all I've noticed is that it takes too fucking long to open. Probably my computer is too slow to handle it. Oh well, that's about to change.

I've decided that when I get my student loan for next year, I'm going to allot enough money to purchase a PowerBook. It just seems right for me to convert to a Mac. I was once an avid PC user, but in the Graphic Design field, there's just no question that a mac is prefered. Besides, with a laptop, I can work on stuff on my lovely hour long commute every day to class and back.

I'm not ditching my lovely PC. Granted, it is old. Ancient in computer age (nearly 4 years old with a recent upgrade this year) But it has a lot of my shit on it. Over 200 gigs worth, so that's still going to be around. I'm just not sure yet if I'm going to get internet connection for the PowerBook. I shall be looking at craigslist.com for a good deal on possibly a used PowerBook. Or does anyone suggest something better? puellaris? :D

Hungerrrrrrrr!
