‘nother update

June 12, 2006

Okay now I’m reading the news. From the NYTimes today we have a lot of fun stuff. Kids are using annoyingly high-pitched cell phone ring-tones that adults can’t hear. Dear lord I’m gonna kill them if they show up in my lectures. In related, am I the only one that hears an annoyling high pitched noise near the door that leads to the Angel Hall auditoriums? That drives me bonkers.
The other wonderful article:

It’s about managing your money, and how dropping the Starbucks habit can buy you a car in ten years. This is what I’ve been trying to convince myself of since starting college. $3 saved a day is about $1000 a year. Hence why I try to be so stingy. I liked this quote though, “Unless you have learned the art of sneaking into conferences at hotels to snag a breakfast croissant or cocktail-hour shrimp, you need to reduce your dining budget.” Yay for meandering by events on campus and eating their food. Hey I only take a cookie usually!
Okay I’ll work now.

    You’re definitely not the only one who hears that sound. It’s in the doorway, in between the first and second doors, right? It’s been driving me crazy for two years. I think it’s the heater/air conditioner/whatever vent thing there on either side.
    Hmm…I think I worry too much about money, and that’s part of the reason I don’t have much.
