Am still severely sleep deprived, though I managed to make it through my programming placement test/assignment. Some edge-case bugs, but given how tired I was, I just thought, "Fuck it, it mostly works" and turned it in instead of trying to get up early and troubleshoot.

It is hot. Very hot. And there is no air-conditioning anywhere, and yesterday I walked for about half an hour in the horrible, hot sun with two packages of books, during which I decided I hated the bus that did not come, the whole sun-setting-in-the-west thing, every single person who stood in my way on the sidewalk, all the cars that wouldn't let me cross, and the entire world, for good measure.

Also, I feel like I have done nothing but deal with bureaucracy and things going wrong: the library I was most used to for programming isn't the one most people use, so I had to figure out stuff from scratch quickly; the router keeps turning off, thanks to a giant and sensitive on button (naturally, it was by Motorola, who seems to enjoy making the least usable things ever); my new library card already had problems; the idiot people at the post office almost wouldn't give me my package because they claimed my name was wrong (it was not. They misread it); I was redirected to four different lines to get one freaking course package that I had PRE-ORDERED online; the toilet in the apartment is plugged up and we have no plunger; there is a giant and VERY LOUD street-cleaning truck that drives by my window, which I have to keep open because of the heat, at two and three in the morning; the Ikea guy called at eight in the morning to try to reschedule delivery (ha. NO) after I had already stayed up late with aforementioned programming and aforementioned street-cleaning truck; I still have to figure out health and dental insurance; and I think I am sunburnt.

None of these problems are very big, really, it's just that it would be nice if they stopped piling up.

On the plus side, the used bookstore in the area paid me $25 and Korean 101 is AWESOME and I love it. Now if only they would take me off the waitlist...

My, that brings up not-fond memories of (OMG!) 30+ years ago and starting college in the fall ... I hope things get better soon!

Want to grab tea/food this evening? We can both zone out from our madnesses.

Ah. Boo. (since, you know, I'm just down the street from you now).

But, okey-dokes.

Take care and be sane.

I may never complain about my campus again. Not even the teachers who lectured us when the (at best) 12 minute walk across campus became 17 due to construction, and so some of us were late to class.

Since you're in my neck of the woods now, you have a standing invite to come by when you're up and able. And I've got tea!

You're learning Korean! *jealous*

If I survive Mandarin, that's next on my list.

If you get into Korean 101, I suspect your grasp of the language will quickly be better than mine. Ha!
