That dreaded time of year is upon us

That's right folks, in just a few short weeks I'll be headed back to that miserable, gray, absurdly-overpriced-for-poor-college-kids-who-don't-have-everything-paid-for-by-their-daddies area of Pittsburgh known as Oakland. I think if I was a city-girl I'd enjoy the University of Pittsburgh much more, but I grew up in a little suburb with a McDonald's as the hangout spot. Needless to say I'm not exactly looking forward to it, especially with my experiences from last year. Last year was probably what I would distinguish as the very worst year of my life thus far, so with that in mind, I can't help but at least be a little hopeful. I'm also looking to at least be able to eat at the "Taco Bell" level of college eating. Last year I went from eel rolls once a week at the Cathedral, to a greek salad at Panera, to three soft tacos at Taco Bell, to one mustard and salami sandwich, to a pack of veggie Wheat-Thins and/or Junior Mints from a vending machine, to absolutely nothing. I aim to at least eat at the "Taco Bell" level this year, or at least this fall. Next spring will be my last semester at Pitt and I'll be too happy to not eat sushi once a week, regardless of my financial situation. My birthday is also in less than a month, and I suggest everyone send me blue slushies, greek salads, garlic pastas, and tickets to Disney World.

Also, I purchased my second Wii yesterday, after it was determined that my first Wii would no longer be in my possession. So now I have the problem of figuring out which game to play. I've been trading everything in from previous Wii games I don't want anymore to random books that I'll never read again. Now I have a shiny new Wii and eight games, some of which are courtesy of Stephen and his willingness to trade in 50 or so of his DVDs. I'm probably off to play Okami. After all, I've been waiting to play that game for like four years now.
