It's The College Life For Me

I must apologize for the long delay in posting. I've been caught up with things. I now work endlessly it seems on weekends at the nearest Blockbuster. Yes, the same video store that got rid of late fees...or so it seems. At least at the one I work at, if movies aren't returned at a certain time, the member is charged $1.32 per day until that movie is returned to us. After 30 days, they bought the movie. So, the 'life after late fees' thing is just a ploy to get people to return movies on time. But then again, if you're so busy with life that you can't watch a movie in a week's time, maybe you shouldn't have wasted money renting anything.

I am still in school, with Spring Break (YES!) coming this Friday. I don't know if I should be elated with it, since it's the only week long furlough that I have until summer break begins. I should be, considering that all I've done is come home every Friday, work, come back to college either Sunday night or Monday morning (much like today) then, during the week, go to classes. It's strenuous to say the least. But there's nothing wrong with making money while in the homestretch of getting an education. It's going to be a long 3 years left.

The weather has yet again become the topic of SKOCL2. It's kind of strange to think that one topic such as this could take up so much time.

A few days ago, there was a period of fifty degree plus weather. Which, after having to suffer from the cold for so long, came to be enjoyable. The peak temperature was a comfortable fifty five. However, once we reached that peak, the weather became strange. One minute it was a sunny day. The next we had hail, sleet, rain and snow, in no particular order. And it got COLD! A good twenty something degree drop in temperature.

Yesterday and today were also the complete opposite of warm. In fact, we had four inches of snow yesterday, which will make it fun at night, if you know what I mean. Not that I plan on going anywhere, with most of my friends gone and all.

In an update, I leave for Plymouth in two days. I think I'm finally starting to become nervous.

There really hasn't been much happening in my life right now. Which is the reason for a long period between posts. I go to college next week (the 27th) to begin the second semester of my freshman year.

In sports, some good news, the New England Patriots lost in the playoffs. That should hopefully put an end to the 'first sports' dynasty of the 21st century.' At least, I hope. There is something about dynasties that are kind of annoying. I like to see different teams win their sports coveted prize. Not the same teams winning that same prize year in and year out.

I'm kind of nervous about going to college. I mean, really nervous. I don't know why. There isn't anything about it that frightens me in any way, but I'm nervous about going for some reason. I know my roommate from Ireland, and we get along alright, so that kind of makes things easier.

Does anybody have any tips for moving into a dorm? I'm completely lost as to what to do.

'Party Over Oops! Out of Time'

I sit here typing my wishes to all for a Happy New Year, I realize that there isn't a lot of time left. It's currently 5:26 PM, leaving just something like seven hours and thirty four minutes left of good ol' 2005. It's been a monumentous year for me. Travelling to Italy twice and living in Ireland for three months will be something I will never forget. Being in Rome for the Pope Benedict XVI's first Sunday Mass is an experience to remember. So..since I'm having problems making paragraphs for some reason, I will leave it short and sweet. Enjoy the rest of 2005.

Once again, Mother Nature enjoys her cruel games.

I don't know if anybody lives in New England, but the weather here is confusing. One day its almost fifty degrees out and the next day it's snowing. The weather has been so bad that a street in Montpelier collapsed and went down into another street as part of a rock slide.

As for where I live, which about 20 minutes away from the rock slide, it rains, sleets, and occasionally snows. The roads aren't that bad as to the point where you can't drive, it's just when the weather is bad, people seem to drive worse. I'm not sure how that works out, but, it does.

Now I really can't wait for spring and summer, where it's rain. I officially can't stand winter...enjoy the day wherever you are!

Merry Christmas

It's that time of year again. The time to rejoice with one another and celebrate another year in peaceful harmony with family. Although Christmas makes it less than one week until we have a new year, it is a time where most families enjoy themselves and spend some quality time with one another
So, since the exodus is like a giant family, I would like to wish all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

People say that there is nothing better than returning home after spending so long away from it. Even though I was only gone for three months, the concept was the same.

The flight was smooth, with just a little turbulence. The most annoying part was the amount of kids that were running and playing in the aisle. Other than that, and the atrocious in flight movie that was shown (Dukes of Hazzard) everything was smooth.

We landed about twenty-five minutes earlier than expected. But, thanks to the amount of time it took to retrieve two suitcases, I didn't go through customs until about thirty minutes later.

Everything about home is the way I remembered it. I don't know if I should be disappointed or not, with everything staying the same. All the same, it's good to be home again.
