The following is not a coffee rant, it is a late night rant.

Had my first class tonight for the semester online from 8 to 10pm.
Our professor said she was going to ask us a question and for us to either get out a pencil and paper or launch a word processing program and just take five minutes to answer and then we would reconvene. The question was to think back to your teen years when you had a moment when you finally realized who you were or who you were to become. Okay. I had nothing to say, couldn’t remember ever having such a moment..lol. I think the closest I came was maybe when I realized I was a person who hated high school and couldn’t wait to get out. That might have falled under the moment when I realized a little of who I was :-p

Of course someone in the class virtually “raised their hand” and asked the dumbass question of the night: “professor, would you like us to write this on paper or in Word?“ Uh, that doesn’t even deserve an answer. She just said it didn’t matter and you’re not handing it in. Hello. I’m such a smart ass it’s not even funny. I joke with my roommate Robin that if we both weren’t so sarcastic we would get on each other’s nerves, but since we are, we don’t. Ha. We make fun of everything, mostly stupid tv commercials. One of my favorites is the one with Jessica Alba where she sashays up to the camera in a sexy dress and says in a sultry voice: “All I REALLY want is for my foundation to match my skin..” Lol. There are some commercials I love though, they are just clever and funny. No matter how many times I see them I laugh, like the one about the milky minutes. I think that's by t-mobile or something.

I spent around an hour and a half at the computer place getting my laptop diagnosed and fixed today. I had a jack replaced and paid around $125 dollars, but it doesn't seem like it's going to last. The guy there also told me my motherboard might be a problem too. I'm not sure how much longer this laptop is going to work. I hope it at least gets me through this semester and maybe I can get a new one for Christmas if it comes to that. I hope it doesn't. He was nice enough to remove Norton from my computer too. That antivirus program is a virus in and of itself. My computer loads and works so much better since he pried that thing off my system. I tried many times myself to uninstall it but Norton makes sure that once you download it on you will never get it off. I also bought the McAfee cd from him and installed that. The guy said it was much better. It was a lot cheaper too.

I also dropped one of my classes I had registered for this semester, my Wednesday night class from 8-10pm. I was already getting stressed what with all these novels I have to read just for one class. Now that I'm only taking two I feel much more relaxed. I really wish I could get a good job and start making money and saving and stuff. I keep applying at Fsu but I think I'm being too picky. Next interview and job they offer me I'll think hard about taking. In the meantime I just want to get through this program, but I'm worried there won't be a good job for me after that either, but I will do an internship this time around and hopefully that will help me secure something. Part of my problem with finding a good job is I want to stay in Tallahassee too. I like it here, my friends are here, the church I love is here, it's home for me. I would rather be here and be with the people I care about and settle for a lower paying job than go chase down a higher paying one somewhere else and yet not be happy there. People mean more to me than money and a good job. Anyways, we'll see what happens. Time for me to hit the sack.

I hate that commercial with Jessica Alba too. I forget exactly why but it could be the same reason as you. (I'm super sarcastic too.) The other commercial is for AT&T I think. (Not T-Mobile because I have that and I kinda wish for roll-over minutes. T-Mobile has the Fav 5, where you get 5 people on a list to call for free, always. That's pretty nice too. And those commercials were pretty good too, like the father intimidating the boy before he took out his daughter.) I DIGRESS! But I like at the end of the Milky Minute commercial how the dad says "Isn't your sister lactose intolerant?"

Yeah, I know... there's always someone with a super dumb question. So far I haven't encountered that, but I only had my first of four classes today. I'm sure it's just waiting to happen.

I hate when I have my own stupid questions too. :-(

Yeah, that was a pretty classic question. :)
