So, apparently it is no longer acceptable to just smile at people as they walk past you.

I am in the Linux computer lab, on one of my User Consultant shifts. My "mentor" (the guy who is supposed to be teaching me how to be a UC) is not here. The UC from last shift is though. So, he walked past, I looked up and smiled, I guess. 'Cause that's what I do. I smile at people. He gave me a strange confused look. I got confused. I shrugged my shoulders. He sat down. I typed this.

Hmm... is it weird to just smile at people? I've always done it. I thought it was a friendly thing to do. But, is it not? Are you supposed to just look coldly at people as they walk by?

So I have assigned a food to each of my homework subjects.

Spanish homework is like lima beans. They are hard to choke down, but you know that once you do, it'll be good for you. Also, it takes a lot to equal one serving.

Education homework is like an extra large bag of burnt popcorn. It's supposed to be really good, but for some reason it isn't. And it takes a really long time to finish, not because it's hard, but because there is so much of it.

Statistics homework is like one of those zinc lozenges that you take when you have a cold. It's gross, and although tiny may take a long time to completely finish. But when you do finish it, you immediately feel better.

Psychology homework is like vitamin C. You keep forgetting to do it, and you put it off and put it off. And then when you finally do it, it does you no good because you just forget it all the next day (or in the case of the vitamin C, you pee it all out).

What food does your homework resemble?

My attention span lasts about 4 minutes. That's not very conductive to studying.

But last night I did figure out how to use DOS to FTP my files onto the schools network (instead of using Internet Explorer's FTP thingie which people say is very insecure. But, if someone were to hack into my folder or whatever, and take my Spanish paper, they would just be doing themselves a disservice anyway, so it doesn't really matter). It makes me feel all computery (although it's not hard. You need like, 2 commands). And, it's fun, because when you disconnect, you just type "bye" and that's very friendly.

(Oh, wait. That doesn't work here. I need to hit "post&publish" don't I?)

It is so nice out today. So nice out. Of course, I have classes all day today. So I don't get to enjoy it at all. But in theory, having the weather be above 30F, and the sun peeking around the clouds is a really nice thing.

According to Weather.com, the high temperature for tomorrow is "N/A". That's never a good sign. The high is "N/A" and the low is "-10F". I can't wait. At least a took a shower now (at 2:15 in the morning) instead of in the morning, so that my hair won't freeze on the way to class.

Cool. Email guy #2 is using Diccionarios.com too. I've never met anyone that used Diccionarios.com. If it weren't for this website, I would have quit Spanish already. But it's a good website. It's a super Spanish-English/English-Spanish translator. So I have not yet quit Spanish.

I find it amusing how I am sitting in a computer lab (no, that part's not amusing - I'm always sitting in a computer lab) and, of the six people in here, three are writing emails, one is checking CNN.com (when she is supposed to be working on an Art Seminar paper (yeah, I'm spying. But, she's sitting right in front of me and when my eyes wander, they wander to her computer screen - she got here about two hours ago and has written two paragraphs. Oh, and now she left the news site and is checking her email too), one is not here (her books are here, but she's been gone for about an hour) and the last person has been staring at a spreadsheet for about ten minutes - the spreadsheet has not changed at all in those 10 minutes.

Yay for procrastinating college students.

I was one of the people writing an email. And an important email it was too (I wrote an email to my friend telling her I had to pee because I just drank a lot of diet coke. Yes, you really wanted to know that - so did she.)
