Snowwwwww Dayyyyyyy.

I didn't think colleges got snow days...but it turns out we do, just less than public schools 5:45 AM my roommate's phone went off, and it was a text message. I heard her say "Fuck yeah!" and I said "Do we not have school today?" And she said "No, the university's closed!" so I said "Yes! Turnin' off the alarm."
So we slept for another six hours.

All kinds of branches and big tree limbs are down, and some power lines and branches have even fallen on cars. Evan and I went and played in the snow, and hopefully he'll get the pictures up soon. I'm sitting in my (kind of) warm room and drinking hot chocolate......Evan is in his room doing homework. I don't really feel like doing homework. I hope we don't have classes tomorrow, but we probably will. I should probably write my paper. I should probably do my theory homework.

The Difficulties of a Life Lived on the Rocks

I've learned a lot of things since I started college. Not things that you'd expect, either. Little things, that I KNOW will be of use to me later in life (I'm sorry, but I'm confident that I will NEVER have to have a comprehensive knowledge of cathedral...ic architecture). Here's a quick rundown (inspired by my good friend Emma, from England):
1. Keep me away from fish tanks.
2. I have a knack for getting into situations in which I must explain awkward things to Asians.
3. The lack of space between the "i" and "o" keys can be your worst enemy.
4. Subsequently, no matter HOW MANY TIMES you proofread a paper, you will always miss one typo.
5. That typo will usually be typing "thong" instead of "thing."
6. Some pranks go unappreciated and make people furious. These are the best kind.
7. Trolling internet whores is a MUCH more worthwhile pursuit than studying.
8. There are tunnels under the buildings. Cereally.
9. Accidentally switching to lolcat speak in class is only slightly less embarrassing that accidentally calling a professor mom/dad.
10. English professors have installed in their brains.
11. All you needed to be a distinguished American writer in the colonial times is unique facial hair.
12. Mr. Buckner was right, a college student will do ANYTHING to get a free T-shirt.
13. Colleges should give out free socks/underwear instead. we all have too many T-shirts already.
14. A real friend is NOT the one who will buy you beer, pot or porn. A real friend is the one who will pay for your laundry.
15. ????


That's right, snice. A mix of snow and ice. And right now Evansville has a lot of it. I walked back to my dorm with a fellow music therapy major and I almost fell twice and he almost fell once. It's actually safer to walk on the snice than to walk on the icy sidewalks. Rain keeps falling and it keeps freezing on the snow, making it snice. Poor shorts-wearing Evan fell today. I felt kinda bad. He's kinda klutzy, but so am I. I fall UP stairs. Haha. Anyway, I would be at wind ensemble right now, but it's cancelled because of the snice. I'm sad that the percussion professor's recital is cancelled, but I'll get to see it Thursday. Yay! That is all. Time for dinner....and time to go out in the snice again.

Wish me luck.

Snow day...

So, I wake up this morning and look outside and see the ground covered in snow. I ask my roommate if classes are cancelled, but she's getting ready for her classes, so I just went back to sleep. I mean, my only class of the day is Japanese Culture at 2:45, so I'd be able to sleep in anyway. ^_^
But then I get one of those UE Alert text messages that tells me the school will be closing at 3. So, no classes for me today!!!

Hopefully, the bad weather will carry into tomorrow and those classes will be cancelled too. :3

I was a little sad the other day when I found a support stamp for one of my favorite watches... and realised you could only really use it on DA if you were a subscriber. D: So I told her I'd use it in this blog. WHEE! lol ^_^

She's quite the good, I think. The stamp links to her page. :3

And now... back to reading for that quiz today, dammit.

EDIT: Sigh... the gif doesn't play, so maybe I'll link the stamp to the actual file on her DA. v.v; eh...

Alright, I know it's Sunday....but I'm really scared on how my first full-fledged Monday is going to turn out. Here's how it goes:

9-9:50 Music Theory
11-11:50 Math =[
12-12:50 Freshman Seminar
1:05-2:30 Music Therapy Practicum
2:50ish-3:50ish Work-Study
4-4:50 Aces Brass (Band)


Plus, SAI rush starts at 9pm tomorrow night. That will be a fun way to end the day with good food, and some awesome girls! Yay!

On an unrelated note, this weekend went by way too quickly, AGAIN. Evan, Kait, and I went to Cirilla's (porn shop/sex store) and Kait lost her porn shop/sex store virginity. I ran into a fellow music major there (haha, she's awesome.) and we discussed vibrators. She bought some...interesting....things. The trip was fun. Haha. And I proved to Evan and Kait that my dad is much cooler than either of their parents...I called him and told him I just went to a sex store. He laughed, and told me not to frequent "those types of places" because there are some "real weirdos" that shop there.

And I promised myself I'd be in bed by's 11:59. I should go.


Coconut Crabs are officially the FUCKING CREEPIEST ANIMALS ON EARTH.

Also, I'm beginning to suspect that our newest Pope is a moron (moreso that any religious leader). Take a look at these lulz-worthy articles and see for yourself!

If the Pope is obscenely rich, he should at least spend it on something good. Maybe a face-lift, perhaps? Methinks more people would be his sheep if he didn't look like Lord Sidious.

So my parents are coming this weekend. They should be here in about... oh, thirty minutes or so. Depending on who's driving.

I'm bored. I want to drop German. The readings are ridiculous. But I don't know what the W would do to me, and I need to have enough credit hours. Although I don't know what to take.

Sigh. Also, I want to make that hat. Except I have to finish Bethany's wristwarmers and Evan's _____ hat! :D lol. No, won't tell you what it is.

Sigh. Idk. I just... I want to sleep. But they'll want me to do stuff and I have homework for like every class. >.< No. I really don't want you guys to be here yet. Maybe next weekend. -___- Aw, whatever. Ten minute nap, then I read for FYS.

Kait out -- like a light. ^^

Life as a music major.

Professor Butturi and Dr. Rike's recital was tonight. It was amazing, to say the least. Dr. Zifer and Mr. Butturi played this really odd--but cool--20th century piece where Mr. Butturi had to drum on his guitar and Dr. Zifer used his tuning slide on his trumpet as a trombone slide. It was neat. Dr. Rike sang some cheesy musical theatre songs with some mezzo-soprano lady.....and the stage manager had a SERIOUS rattail which Loren and I kept laughing about. I also took advice from Greg: to wear argyle scarves. Hahaha. Oh, being a music major....even dull things and semi-dull things (not that the concert was...just the empty spots between pieces!) can be interesting and amusing. lol.


So yeah. That game that I was talking about?
Beat my high score.
Was 233, 890.
Now it's 408, 960.
I am a "All Star Beast Pwner"



So now I'm rollin' down Rodeo with a shotgun.

Yeah. Not in the greatest of moods right now. Just thought I'd throw that out there. Raging against the machine and several other things with RATM blaring in my ears and pounding against the walls of my heart, throbbing in my neck. Don't tense things snap eventually? Oops.

Can't waste a day when the night brings a hearse? Don't sleep, I say.

How simple eat in get, don't you?

So, I've never really blogged before, but there's a first time for everything ^_^

...And I'm supposed to be in class right now, but I didn't feel like going, so...I didn't. Oops. X3

But ch'ya. I don't really know what to write about. My room is cold. Nao is playing her annoying music even though she's asleep and unable to listen to it. And I'm hungry, cause I missed lunch. :(

BUT. I found this awesome game at ^_^ It's called Ski Runner.
Remember that game that was on older computers, where you'd be skiing, and you'd have to avoid the obstacles...but then the monster would come out and he'd always eat you, no matter where you dodged? Yeah...well, it's kinda like that, except on crack, and no monster. Literally, you're basically on crack as you ski, cause you collect "pills," and once you get enough, there are flashing lights and the trees and rocks start dancing and there are HALLUCINATIONS. And there's awesome techno music.
This game is the shit.
Oh. yeah.


This is The Kait, reporting in! *salute!*

AHAHAHAHA. Hello, my bloggity friends.

I really ought to be napping, but I'm bored. I ought to be doing homework instead of being bored if I'm awake... but... I'm bored. :D

Lately I've been a little obsessed with Lego Star Wars. It's a little too much fun, I think, since at home we have LSW I & II for PS2, and now I have it for PC and GBA. :D AHAHA. But you get to blow up stuff. Ah, well.

Time for level three! :D I really need to get more studs so I can purchase the invincibility cheat! D:

Heck yeah!!!!!!!

Today Barack Obama is inaugurated as the new president. Being the Democrat I am, I am SO EXCITED to witness this. I don't want to go to class at 11, but I have to. It's lame. I should leave now, but I'm glued to the TV. Gah.

Happy Obama Inauguration Day!

Come heeeeeeeeeeere, guys.

There were new prospective students touring the college, and that means one thing - mischief. At first, I was only going to address a lot of them at once in the lunchroom, something along the lines of:
But I figured that would be no good, as it would be inefficient. So, still believing that it was a personal duty to welcome these people to my college (in my town, no less), I instead adopted the approach of greeting them individually with a firm handshake and "My name is Evan Williams and I'd like to personally welcome you to my university. Enjoy your stay, and remember, [insert irrelevant fact here.]"

I decided, of course, that even this wasn't enough. For the lulz, I decided to greet current students with this as well. by the end of the day, this was the final count:

Prospective students: 30
Current students: 25


Yay snow!

Normally I hate snow, but last night was awesome.

That is all.

Well, I guess this is the beginning.

I guess I'll christen this thing with a post. I have no idea how this is going to turn out, or how interesting it will be. Evan is in my room playing my GameCube, while I'm trying to put all of this together and get it up and running. So here it is. The Nonchalants: four friends blogging about their lives, loves, and ramblings.
