How the hell did John get himself a girlfriend?

How do I go to this school?

I don't do any work. What the hell?

Odd things interacting

So, when I am in an oddly contemplative mood, and another person is not really feeling social, it doesn't produce good conversation or good pool. Which sucks. But circumstances weren't right, and that is disappointing. Mostly in that I didn't see it before it happened. I should have-- I should have had enough information by that point to know it was not really a good idea. But there we go. More nothing.

Nothing like nausea to start an evening right

Right, so that title tells you how my evening started. And then I tried to nap while my roommate listened to music (with headphones) loud enough that i could hear every word. She is going to go deaf, and I didn't get any sleep. I also didn't get any work done. Then I waited a while to see if anyone was going to go to dinner, and when the dining halls were about to close and no one was around, I went alone. And then I got there, and dinner was terrible. So, I ended up eating a miserable dinner alone at Calhoun, and then sitting in a meeting I didn't want to be in for a committee I don't want to be on for a half hour, going to the library, and then coming back here. I kind of want to go to bridge club later, but I also kind of want to be asleep. So I don't know.

So, tonight, I have been swept by a wave of ennui. I am just feeling tired and jaded, and not really into things right now.
I was ok earlier, before my friends showed up. And then they did, and that was where things started to go downhill. Which sucks to say, but I can't dance around it. I was so happy at hockey. Hockey makes me so happy, generally, despite the fact that KBB was a total shitshow tonight. No one knew the songs, we forgot all our music, we weren't all playing the same thing and we were playing at different times... It was messy, and bad. But we have a new drum major. Ben Jorns. Don't know him very well, but I think he will be a good representative for the band. Once he slows his conducting down a little bit, and he grows into the job a little bit, it will be good. I do feel bad for the other candidates, though, because they all would have made very good DMs. I like them all, and Hudson looked so down after Doug made the announcement. Hopefully, I'll see him tomorrow, and hopefully, he'll be feeling somewhat better by then.
Now, I just want to go to bed.

So confused. Damn it all.

Monday, January 16, 2006


So, here are some things. I will make a list for these things. (I hope this isn't long, I have work to do!)
1. I played in a bridge tournament in NY yesterday. It was pretty awesome.
2. I am a little creeped out by Chris and Amy. They were definately sitting on each other, and there was touching. Not inappropriate touching, but more than "I'm your friend" touching. And I creeped out by it.
3. So, Anne thinks I talked JT into breaking up with her over winter break. An inane proposition, because I didn't actually talk to JT over break, and even if I had, would never have said anything of the sort. That being said, several things about her really bother me. For one, she is very territorial, and likes to claim people for her own just to take them away from other people, and not actually out of genuine interest.
4. So there is not going to be a thing with Jason. This has been almost conclusively determined, and though I liked having a "prospect", I am still happy about it because we have very interesting conversations, which is cool.
5. I have not done any real work since getting back to New Haven. This is really bad, and I am starting to fall behind already. It is the first week of the semester. I haven't even submitted my schedule to the Dean yet, and I am behind.
6. Argh, work.
7. I have been kind of frustrated with my friends lately, though not for any discernable reason. Just grumpy and intolerant and it sucks.

Well, that closed the door pretty soundly... If he has a dinner-date with another girl, it doesn't exactly signal romantic intentions.

Oh, also...

What does it mean to you if you talk to a person a lot online, see them fairly regularly one-on-one, and have great conversations then, but when you see them in public, you get the most cursory nod or barely a hello?
I mean, who does that?

I came for the Yale Band

Truly, if it were not for the band, I don't know where I would be. I love them all, and I did not believe that losing a hockey game 4-1 could turn a crappy night into a good one. But i guess it can, because it just did. It doesn;t help that I have no idea where my camera is right now. But other than that, I am recovering just fine from my afternoon/evening.

Your brain: 160% interpersonal, 100% visual, 20% verbal, and 120% mathematical!
Congratulations on being 400% smart! Actually, on my test, everyone is. The above score breaks down what kind of thinking you most enjoy doing. A score above 100% means you use that kind of thinking more than average, and a score below 100% means you use it less. It says nothing about how good you are at any one, just how interested you are in each, relatively. A substantial difference in scores between two people means, conclusively, that they are different kinds of thinkers.

Matching Summary: Each of us has different tastes. Still, I offer the following advice, which I think is obvious:

  1. Don't date someone if your interpersonal percentages differ by more than 80%.
  2. Don't be friends with someone if your verbal percentages differ by more than 100%.
  3. Don't have sex with someone if their math percentage is over 200%.

My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:

So, i was just musing about why i am enjoying my non-yale friends so much more than the prospect of going back to school. the answer is that other people are easier, namely easier than dealing with "closet" issues, etc. not being the main lifeline for the people at harvard, for example, is no less fun but a lot less work than being at school. so there is that, i guess.
There is also work to be taken into consideration, but that seems minor.

I want more! It is so sad to think that I have now seen every single episode ever produced. I want more!

What am I doing?

By that I mean, when in the hell am I going to get all my work done? I have so much left, and I have done essentially none of it. Argh.

So, here we are, another year over, and the new one just begun. It's a kind of profound day, even if the last ten seconds of the old year slip by in a kind of unfortunate rush of terrible television and awkward reflection. I feel like things should be more examined today, as if it is setting a pattern for the rest of the year. But that is just silly, as it is really just another day with more bubbly.
Oh well. It is also a day for contemplating time as a concept. A year ago today I was submitting college applications. How far I've come since then! And in two years, I'll probably be in NYC with my Yale friends, celebrating Chris' 21st birthday. But today also made me appreciate my break, how excellent and drama-free it has been. No drama! What a novel concept. Rather relaxing, if I dare say so.
Sigh. It has messed up my sleep cycle though. I need to fix that before classes start up again. Also, I need to read more. I am on page 65 of 1700 or so that I am supposed to have done in 8 days. Haha....
