Today was Columbus Day, and although my best friend is in Spain right now, still...fuck it. Leif Ericson was the first European to come to North America, and he did it centuries before Columbus did. Even then...

My sleeping schedule is getting a little better. I will try to avoid going to bed later than 3:30 AM as well as waking up after 12:30 PM. Not being able to fall asleep until around 6:00 AM last Wednesday because I didn’t wake up until the middle of the afternoon on Tuesday was not fun at all, and I will be trying to avoid repeating it at all costs. Especially while I’m in school, since I skipped astronomy that day to get a couple extra hours of sleep.
Speaking of astronomy class, the average for the exam was a 66%. Even though I got a 69%, I don't feel so bad. There's another quiz coming up this week, so hopefully with the extra studying, I'll be able to bring my grade up.
As for my angry nostril piercing, I did some sea salt soaks over the weekend, left it alone as much as possible, and thankfully, it's nearly healed again.
Choke is not (and never was) showing at Marcus Theatres in the Falls. The only other theater I can get to that is showing it is The Oriental, however the only two times it's showing don't work with my class schedule. Damn.
I ended up blocking the people on MySpace I previously mentioned wanting to do so, but feared I’d meet in person again. I figured I needed to keep my peace and sanity at the moment, and that if I actually see these guys again, I can always tell them I deleted my MySpace. I know I’m bending my own ethics a bit with being dishonest, but if it’s the only way to stop these needy, desperate guys from constantly bugging me, then I think it’s for the best. Besides, I already tried letting them down lightly, and they weren’t taking no for an answer.
Also, I have heard O-Town's "All or Nothing", Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On", and K-Ci and Jojo's "All My Life" more times this past week than I should in my entire lifetime, courtesy of my wonderful
suitemates. Although I'm usually listening to music while I'm in here, I am not when I'm trying to read something technical, meditating, practicing yoga, and sleeping. Unfortunately, all my suitemates do when they're conscious is listen to horrible, old American pop music.
