It is Begun

Wednesday, August 30th, 2006

Oh, right!  My blog.  Writing.  Ummm…

There ‘ya go!

But yeah, I’m back in college.  It seems like there’s so many things to do (which there are), but when I sit down to do them, my mind goes blank.  Or my motivation starts wilting.

For instance, scholarships.  I’ve signed up at this place called Fast Web to look for them.  I’m pretty sure it’s legitimate, seeing as how a poster in the financial aid office was advertising it.  But anyways, I’ve found that there are a great many out there, and I could apply for a number of them.  But I looked at them, and then…looked at them some more.  I know it’s that or a loan, but even then…

Oh, and if I’m doing that, I’ll need to get on it.  Ay…

On a positive note, though, I’m signed up for all my classes!  And I have a plant!  From my People, Plants & Environment discussion.  Supposedly there are prizes given out at the end of the semester, providing you keep it alive.

I care not about such fickle, transient things.  I will love it and feed it and pet it forever and ever and ever.  Not going to name it though.

…Nnnnope, not going that far.

But it’s my little plant.

Just a few things.

I’m not feeling so verbose tonight, and I’ve been meaning to write for a while.  So, here’s some snippets:

A customer appreciated my helping her so much she had me call my manager so she could say as much.  That feels really good.

Working an early-opening eight-hour shift right after a late-night eight-hour shift should be illegal.  Or highly frowned upon.  Either way, it makes for a frustrated Khalil.

EBGames is dangerous for my wealth.  Preorder count: 3.

I LOVE Shadow of the Colossus.  Not so much in the way that Ico holds a place in my heart, but it is greatness all the same.

My last day at JCPenney is August 19th.  Yay!

I have to get ready for school.  Oh jeez.

It is possible to like your manager while at the same time be furious at them.  I don’t know how or why, but it is.

I’m this close to beating Dragon Warrior II, despite the ludicrousness of the given tasks.  So close.

…And that’s about all.  Other than needing to some day find another PS1 memory card.  Evenin’ all.
