Briefly coming out of hiding

So if anyone ever says hey, it's a great idea to take 17 credits, work full-time, running a household, and raise a child on your own they are full of shit, ignore them. Run away because they are probably crazy.
Taking a lot of credits at a decent school is far different than taking a lot of credits at a community college. First of all I have recitations and then add that to the slightly more homework, well at least more learning on your own, and that just makes for way more work. One more exam left from midterm-time, that's Friday night. Yes, an exam on Friday night, I apologize if I've bitched about these stupid Friday night tests before but they are downright ridiculous. I mean really, I realize we're done by 7 but way to start off the night on a shitty note. And anyways, don't they encourage more drinking as people walk out of there happy to be done with the stupid test but wondering what they got and knowing they did shitty because nearly everyone does awful on their bio test. And since this is only a 200-level course most of the people in there are underage.

I've decided I desperately want a pet octopus. For bio we're doing a presentation (for extra credit--yay!) on the evolution of an octopus eye vs. the evolution of a human eye. We're in a group of 4 and my work is to research the evolution of the octopus eye which has read to reading up on the organism and oh my gosh I did not know that they were so smart and have little personalities and everything! Once an animal has a personality I want it. My mom won't get me one for Christmas. :(

One of the wonderful things about school is the educational discounts on things, I can purchase Windows 7 for $30. My mom's birthday is today so I was considering buying it for her and looking like this great daughter and only spending $30. Thoughts?

My step dad purchased Mini-Geek a Visible Man. What I imagine most of you don't know about these things is that every piece needs painted and put together. I apparently don't have enough to do, I mean I only have/had 2 tests and a quiz this week and 2 quizzes and 2 tests last week and an apartment that needs a good cleaning, and pumpkins that need carving, and sleep that needs catching up on, and so much more. I spent Monday night painting and assembling rather than studying for the quiz on Kingdom Plantae, specifically the coniferous life cycle, that I had at 9:30 am Tuesday. I hope that I still did well.

Speaking of the little creature, Mini-Geek is going to be a ninja for Halloween, I think it's because he wants to carry around a sword honestly.

Oh and awesomeness--Monday my bio professor was out sick. With swine flu. On the day we talked about viruses. (He had someone fill-in for him.)

Oh hey, did I mention I'm clumsy?

So I'm currently typing with one hand. Stop the dirty thoughts. I fell in my bathroom, hitting my forehead on the counter and have a goose egg right above my left eyebrow that is larger than my eyeball and is raised up nearly 3/4 on an inch. I feel like a small child or old woman. Who the hell falls and injures them self in the bathroom as an able-bodied adult?!

School is still going well, I have gotten an A or an A- on like everything I've gotten back so far.

Life is just weird. I feel like I've stepped into Bizarro Land, things that I never in a million years expected to happen keep happening to me.

Okay, it's hour later and I quit typing up this post earlier. The bump is still effing huge and it's probably only half of its original size so I re-cut some side bangs into my hair and I will be quite emo with my hair over my left eye somewhat to cover this bastard as I'm on campus tomorrow with classes solidly from 7:30am until 12:50pm, as well as a lovely 9.5 hour work night before that. (You're all totally jealous of my life right now, I can tell.)

I need to stop buying Halloween decorations. I can't help it. I'm addicted. They are way more awesome than the rest of the holidays' decorations. I can fill my apartment with skulls and not be told to grow up. I can hang up pretty purple lights in my window! I can put skull lanterns in my kitchen! I love my apartment at night right now and wish I didn't work 3rd shift so that I could enjoy it more. I'd try and get pictures but it's hard to get good pictures of lights with a craptastic camera. I despise my camera and may get a new one soon. It feels so cheap, the interface is not intuitive at all, and I am just not a fan. And for me to complain about something's interface it must suck, I pick them up pretty quickly usually and I've had this thing for months now and I still can't get used to it.

Alright, homework and making sure my hair looks okay now that it has dried more.
