Meanwhile, back at the ranch (dressing station of the meal center)

Let's chat.

I will grant you three----no no, not wishes, questions.

Rules: They cannot be "What's your name? Where are you from?" or "What's your major?" Because in the tradition of thousands of college students who have gone before me, I have had to answers these questions about 8475937 times in the past week. but that's just a ballpark figure.

Oh yes, it's the time of year when every college student considers making a shirt with the answers to these three questions printed on the back, but as I said before, you are not to ask me these.

you may ask me my most embarassing moment, my biggest weakness, or my deepest darkest secret, but lightning strike you down if I hear the words "so what's your major?" one more time.

Now that that's out of the way- let's get down to business.

College is full of statuses. Your academic status, your social status, your wealth status, and, as I wait for someone to stop internet surfing so I can use the computers for homework, everyone's facebook status. 


I walk into the campus library media center to do some homework (my parents are teaching me "rescorcefulness" by not letting me have one) and half of the screens are sporting that familiar facebook layout. Not to be a grouch, but sometimes it can get a little frustrating when I'm waiting to do Honors English homework, and Facebook-Frannie is combing through her latest 78 facebook notifications. Honestly? what can you possibly doing on facebook for an hour? updating your status to "lol there is totally a girl who needs this computer right now, i think i'll stay here" ???

my current statuses are: tired, done with classes for today, single, nearly clean, passably organized, about to eat, socially deprived, ready for a nap, ready for more life.

  1. My first question: What can you tell me about "socially deprived" in that sea of people? Second question: How do you stay so clever when you're so tired? I'll save my third question for another day. I'm so glad you're still blogging!!!!
