weekend

My weekend is just about over. I am not too thrilled about this. It's not that I dislike school. I just really like having some time to relax. Plus, some of the classes I am taking seem not to be very worthwhile. During Finance class the other day, our teacher was rambling about how he learned a bunch of choice expletives when he worked in construction that he uses whenever he has to use calculators. Another student glances my way and asks, in all seriousness, "How is this guy even a professor?" Where can I get motivation for classes like this? I'll tell you where. Deep down inside.

Oh, this is a rather stupid post. My fraternity had it's last day of Rush on Saturday. This means I was doing fraternity stuff almost continuously from about 10:30 a.m. until about 1:30 a.m., so I didn't get much schoolwork or loafing done. Luckily, all those events that plagued my schedule last week will be over, so this next week will be easier.

Here is a tip. If you are planning on calling someone internationally at 3 a.m., check out the international rates first. And if this person happens to be in Austria where the cost is 16 minutes from my phone card per minute spoken, hang up the phone. I talked to Abbie for about 15 minutes last night and wound up using about 250 minutes from my phone card; it was like I had stepped into a hyperbolic time chamber for the duration of the call.

My room is so messy. I did laundry I think about three days ago, and a basket of clean shirts is still sitting on my floor. Putting the clothes away after washing them is the worst part about having a wardrobe. I can handle the trouble of separating the laundry by color, washing and drying it, checking the dryer every ten minutes to see if the clothes are dry yet, then carrying it all the way back into my room. But then I just lose motivation. I'm on the brink of success; why do I give up at this point? The world may never know.

OK, I am finished with the blogging now. Sorry this was such a worthless post. But I'm saving all my writing brilliance for the paper on which I am about to start working. Maybe I'll post that up here if there is enough interest. Anybody want to know all about the practical applications of XBRL? I bet you do.

Hey mister, that call used up 400 of my 2,000 credits on my phone. I suppose the lesson is not to call your girlfriend when she is out of the Czech Republic.

You're better than me. My motivation ends when the clothes go in the dryer. They sit in there, completely dried, until eventually I have to free up the dryer for another load.
