I just spent FIFTY-FIVE MINUTES looking for a parking spot. I spent more time trying to park than my class actually takes. I finally gave up, having wasted so much money on gasoline and single-handedly advancing the earth toward its globally warmed death by fifteen years. I went to Sweet Eugene’s (College Station coffee place) afterwards and irresponsibly bought myself a coffee beverage.
In my Spanish class on Monday the professor made everyone take turns reading the syllabus aloud to get us used to speaking in front of the class. I was appalled by my peers’ inability to read. I suppose I need to get used to it though, if I’m going to teach high school.
I was particularly appalled when this one girl read. She was so bad at reading, that I suspect she probably was dyslexic. So that would lessen my appall, except this happened: She was stumbling over the word “conscientiously” and another girl corrected her.
“It’s ‘consequentially’,” she said.
“Ohh, ‘students should behave consequentially…'”

My gut has become a seething bog of resentment.

My dad is coming on Friday!
We’re gonna go to the Ft. Worth zoo (which I’ve heard is great) and go to all the local coffee shops and eat at restraunts! All the things I can’t afford on my own!
And then we’re packing up all my belongings and heading back to Pearland. And then I’m moving to College Station. I think I might’ve found a place to live there that will let me rent just for fall. It’s a 1/1 duplex with a little fenced-in “yard”. Sounds good to me. Might be pretty crappy, but at least it’s short-term.

I feel more in touch with the seasons lately than I ever have. This is mostly due to decreased use of a/c, more biking and walking, and an effort to eat seasonal foods. It’s a really nice feeling. It makes life feel…fuller?
I’m going to live in College Station for the fall semester. I’ll go to Blinn (a junior college) and get the rest of my core courses over with. I’ll save some money and get to live near Russell. Then I’ll come back to this school and town that I love.
When I set my Zune on shuffle, every once in a while I get a Mega Man song. And very rarely, I get the audio of the “Ever hear of Planet of the Apes?…Uh, the planet of the musical?”-scene.

I was watching an online video of Bill O’Reilly talking about Dr. George Tiller and Allison overheard it. She said, “Oh my god, that guy should be executed.”

My little sister is pregnant. She plans to get a job (so far she has not had much progress on this front) and live with my parents until the thing is born in order to have health insurance. Then she wants to move with her boyfriend to New Mexico and live in a tiny town there. Her boyfriend’s mother is moving to New Mexico this weekend. My sister wants him to move in with us until the two of them move. She wants him to move into my bedroom. I am against this.
I find pregnancy disgusting. I find her delight in it even more so. She’s already a hypochondriac, so this is already sucking. She has to tell everyone how many times she threw up in the morning and how bad she feels and what she can’t eat. She threw a fit one morning because she had to have chicken nuggets from McDonalds at nine in the morning. When I told her they didn’t even sell them that early, she screamed and hurled her phone across the room.
