New blog for a class...

Hey guys! I'll probably be posting to this blog more often (maybe) because I am in a "Succesful Transitions" class for transfer students and our teacher requires us to have a blog and post in it weekly. Ugh...
But since I'll be blogging more often, I might blog over here more.

But if yall wanna read my Transfer blog, just to find out how I'm doing here and whatnot, the link is

I know, creative name. But whatev, it's just for an annoying class xD

Conan's Last Tonight Show.

As you probably know, Friday was the last episode of The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien.It was very emotional for me, as well for many other Conan fans. Even if you're not a Conan fan, I encourage you to watch these clips from Friday's show, or maybe even the full episode on Hulu.

Watch the last segment of this. (This is the link to the full episode.)

Then immediately watch this. Jimmy Fallon pays an amazing tribute.

I laughed, I cried, I even laughed and cried at the same time. It was crazy. Conan continues to be a huge inspiration to me. (and he plays a mean guitar) You can call me a fangirl, obsessed, crazy, whatever, but watch these clips and I promise you'll be moved.

He also had a bit of advice. He said: "All I ask is one thing, and I’m asking this particularly of young people that watch. Please do not be cynical. I hate cynicism. For the record, it's my least favorite quality. It doesn't lead anywhere. Nobody gets in life exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard, and you’re kind, amazing things will happen."

I cant wait until he returns to TV. I'm sure he will kick tons of ass.

P.S. If you're looking for something light and funny, watch this:

New beginnings...

Started classes at MTSU today. I think I'll do a lot better here than at UE. I just had my first class, Cultural Anthropology, and I think it'll be really fun and interesting.
The only thing I don't like about this school is that I have no idea where any of the buildings are. >_>
So now, I must wait in my dorm, waiting for Yi to come get me to show me where to go next.

And I hope tonight my neighbor doesn't have 20 friends over for a Beatles' song fest again. That was rather annoying last night.

He should just go to Africa...and stay there.

As some of you may know, my advisor goes about his advisorley duties about as well as a sack of shit. Two days before Thanksgiving break, he told me that I had not properly registered for classes (which was not entirely my fault), and never emailed me back until I emailed him a second and third time after break. Long story short, we worked out my schedule.

Or so I thought.

He put me into a nursing major chemistry course, neither of the prerequisites of which I had completed. This was to be my first chemistry course ever, and I there was no way I was going to pass it. I went to class once and already felt fucked.

Now, FINALLY, I have my schedule straightened out. I dropped chem and added Anthro 207 and Geog 230, and while my advisor did (however minimally) help me with this, I'll be dropping him soon as well, in hopes of switching to either Cirino or Bone. More updates as they come...
