School and other stuff.

On Tuesday, I went to go get a graduation check from my school's counseling office. My counselor was supersweet, but told me I needed one more class besides the one I'm taking right now in order to graduate. That made me a little bit angry, but what can you do. We found that there was an online class available (the class is History 111 -- America up until 1877), and that I would need to e-mail the instructor in order to gain permission to end of the class via enrollment.

At first, I sent an e-mail saying that I've been in college since 1995, this is less class I need, and to please let me in. The instructor sent me an e-mail saying he couldn't do it. Then, I decided to go for total sad story mode, and broke out the wheelchair card (which, for the record, I hate doing). That did it, and I was granted permission to enter the class. I enrolled yesterday, and have not been able to see my course listed in the blackboard area. Blast!

Also, my friend Cecilia's birthday party is tonight, and she is leaving tomorrow night! Wah!

But, speaking of birthdays, it is one of my other best friend's birthday today! Happy birthday, Justin! I have something that is being sent your way! Woo!

Do you ever feel like, "hey, my teacher gave me all of my assignments. I should just get all of them done, right now, all at once!"? Yeah, because I kind of feel like that right now.

Also, I do Web page work for a local band, and recently did, like, an entire site overhaul, basically making it 1000 times better, and they want me to change it back to the old crappy design? I think not, fellas. Not only do I not have the original design saved onto my hard drive or anything, but by uploading the new design, I basically wrote over the top of the crappy design. Whoops. Yeah, they should have said something earlier. Too bad for them!

And, for informational purposes, I decided to post the following meme:
