succumbing to peer pressure

DONE!!!!!!!!!!!! *Yelps with joy* (though not too loudly, as office-mate is still working on final)

*breaths sigh of relief* I am in a far better humor than I have been the past couple of days (my apologies to the roommies and anyone else who's had to tolerate me). I'm not quite done yet (another 23.5 hours or so), but I'm feeling a ton better about my final. Basically finished (except for some proof-reading and conclusion-drawing) with the first problem, and although I only have a vague idea how to do about 10% of the second problem, I get the feeling that the bulk of my class is in the same boat. So the plan is just to write as much as I can and then not worry about it. All in all am probably about 60-70% done with the thing. Not a bad place to be.

I think I'm going to go insane before I manage to force myself to do this fucking take-home. Could I possibly find more ways to procrastinate? Hell, I've practically even lost the will to procrastinate. I'm tired of doing *everything* but for no good reason. I'm not even tired, so I don't even feel like going to bed. I don't want to read and I don't want to watch tv and I don't want to clean and I don't want to pack up stuff to take home and I don't want to write letters to people I've been meaning to write letters to and I don't want to make that mix cd for matt and I don't want to call anyone and I don't want to surf the net and I don't want to prepare any of my graduation announcements and I don't want to fill out any job applications and I don't want to look for apartments in atlanta...sheesh, could I sound more like a spoiled brat?

Gah. I am such a loser. I have one stupid (ok, incredibly hard) take-home final and three days in which to do it, and I can't seem to FUCKING SIT DOWN AND DO IT!!!!! (yeah yeah, the rest of you have a zillion things to do, oh woe is me, just call me an asshole and move on). Tired of staring at the thing for an hour at a time and not making any progress. Mostly though, right now, am pissed at someone and wishing carrie was home to sit on the stoop and smoke with me and listen to me rant. Boo.

Oh! Nearly forgot - Masters of the Universe was much fun, though it made me feel a bit old. I fell asleep somewhere around 2 or 2:30 (thanks again to Dave for the shoulder!) and definitely paid (though not severely) for my night of partying the next day. S'pose I can no longer brag that I don't get hangovers. *sigh*

Warning: Megan will be sappy, sentimental, and nostalgic for the next 4 weeks or so.

As much as I say (and think) negative things about Cleveland (the city itself, not the people I've met here), and as happy as I am to be moving to a new city, I was surprised to discover tonight that I'm actually going to miss things about my physical location here. Granted, so far the things that I've noticed that about are more related to the CWRU campus than the actual city of Cleveland, but it's probably only a matter of time before I get mushy about those things too. Then again, I suppose half of it is being caused by the whole spring-breautiful-weather-thing. I often forget that I just like things better when the weather is nicer. Before moving here I barely believed in S.A.D., and I definitely never thought I got it. But after the last five years, I have definitely noticed that I like the look and feel and smell of places better once the temp. gets up to about 70 degrees or so and the sun actually makes an appearance more than once or twice a week. I think I also just have a thing for that not-quite-twilight moment around 7 pm when the sun isn't really setting yet, but it's getting low in the sky...anyway, that's about what time it was tonight when I happened to look up and actually liked the profile of the campus buildings I was walking under and actually thought that I was going to miss this campus. Who'd have thought it? Wow, that was quite the ramble to get to that.
