I'm a registered and ready to go for the fall semester. And it doesn't look pretty. Seriously...there is a good chance my soul may just give up on trying to keep me alive next year. Aside from the 16 credit hours I'm registered in, I will also be in three ensembles, be a Community Advisor for the Lodges, work as librarian and setup-man for all of the ensembles, AND I'm even going to attempt to continue to work at the KFC Yum! Center. I may drop that last one, depending on how much money I am able to pry away from an already struggling US Government. But from what I hear, if Rand Paul has his way this may be the last student loan I ever see.
You know what is really bogus? Classes that you are 'required' to take but don't get any credit towards your G.P.A. I mean - I guess its a blessing in disguise at a school like IUS that charges by the credit hour and not by a flat-rate tuition fee once you hit full-time, but if I'm needing to sacrifice well over 16 hours of my time that I could be doing other things, I feel like I should at least get HALF a credit. Oh well, worse things have happened.
18 years later after initially reading this strip and it still makes me laugh just as much as I did the first time.
And if you hate Corporate America just as much as I do, you'll enjoy this little gem as well.
So did anyone else know there was a Royal wedding today? I heard snipits about how they were meant to be together while flipping channels. Something about how he used to be a frog till she kissed him, and then he rescued her from the fire-breathing dragon and hung the monster by making a noose out of her long golden hair.
Seriously, though...why the hell do we care so much about this? This might not be the complete reason, but its still pretty funny.
Terrible thing that happened in Alabama and in other states down south. Tornadoes ripping through, and I hear nearly 300 people were killed? If you'd like to donate $10 to the Southern Relief effort text 'REDCROSS' to 90999 to the Red Cross. Maybe they should try to post this following the performance of one of the leading contestants of American Idol. If they were able to waive off the numerous angry calls from parents, it would be really successful in taking care of Japan, Alabama, and any other disaster relief for the next 20 years.
Well that's it for today. Now I go back to finals and kicking people out my lodge. What a wonderful life I live.
