I still remember (not much to remember)

Hmmm … today was rather humdrum. Lecture, art lab, printing lab. Not much special there.

Little tidbits: I stood in line mindlessly waiting for a chicken sandwich during lunch. I went to the library three separate times today. Half the lights in the second floor are turned off, probably for money energy conservation, but there are also quite a few lights that have just plain died. I spent some of the time after art critique talking to a classmate. Woo, go me. :D

The Shining is getting interesting. I didn’t know there was a backstory to Tony! Then again, I’ve only ever seen the parts of the movie where the scary stuff is seen. Wooow, great plot device there.

The Count of Monte Cristo is a lot more convoluted than I remember. I still like the movie with Guy Pierce. I just consider them two different stories in two different mediums (of course, one gets a bit Hollywood-ized at the end, but what do you expect?). They’re both just so much fun! hee.

Oh yeah, this morning the nail of my left index finger tore off. x.x I was closing the trunk of my car. Now, my trunk door is a bit different than you’d expect. You don’t have to slam it down to close it or anything, it’ll close just on its own weight. So I was holding it up with my index finger and I guess I was more tired than I thought because I didn’t realize that I had it resting on my nail? Or maybe it slipped or something, I don’t know. But either way, it got torn off, and I was about to say “Ow!” when I realized that it didn’t really hurt. Just the tip got torn off (of my finger). But anyway, maybe I’m being grotesque talking so much about it.

Or maybe not. I’ve never had a nail broken on this finger before. I’ve had both ring fingers, my right thumb nail, and maybe my right middle finger? I’m not really sure. My finger doesn’t hurt, it just feels really sensitive, and I’ve got it covered in Band-Aids to remind myself that it’s sensitive area don’t do anything that’ll hurt it! Writing my notes was all right. But the problem arose when I got on my laptop … the Band-Aids block the heat that makes the touchpad work! Noooo!! Okay, so I use my middle finger. I’m used to that, in fact I do it quite often. I’m just finding out now though, how much I use my index finger. ahh! I feel a compulsion to use it, and my mind screams “awkward!” when I use my middle finger instead.

Now on to the continuation (end?) of that skip-a-night’s-sleep fiasco. I partly did it hoping my sleep schedule might right itself, but that just doesn’t seem to be the case. *looks at time* (Okay it’s not my sleep schedule that’s messed up; it’s me and my lack of any self-control!) I woke up this morning at 7 fairly easily, which is funny because usually from the time my alarm goes off (6:45) to about 7:20 I’m just rolling over in bed and going back to sleep. But then it hit me about 7:45 that I’m tired. boo. I decided to buy a 20 oz. Wild Cherry Pepsi soda, mostly because I was thirsty. But now I curse that decision, because I don’t want caffeine having been in my body as I try to fall asleep. grr.
