And Blogger is being a pain

My post wouldn't publish yesterday for some reason, so I've had to wait until today to try and get it to work. I'm hoping posting something here will somehow help the process along. You can tell how little I know about how this blogger software works. I also had something else to say, but can't remember what it was. Guess it wasn't that important.

Time to bitch and moan

I'm bored and irritated, so I'm going to do what I do best: complain. Feel free to skip this post.

Once again I was able unable to get a decent night's sleep, but was luckily able to make it to my 8:00am class without use of my alarm. I actually woke up around 5:45 and couldn't get back to sleep. Normally, I'd blame such things on stress/sleeplessness, but on this particular occasion, I think the most likely culprit would have to be the construction worker operating the jackhammer right outside my window at 5:45 in the fucking morning. Oh, lying in bed listening to that for an hour sure was a joy.

The walk to classes today was equally unpleasant, as it's been pouring all day. The weather has been lousy as hell all week. It hasn't stopped raining since Monday night, and apparently isn't going to until later this week. I also don't have my umbrella, which means I've been walking around soaking wet most of the day. Makes me wonder what the point of showering last night was. My frustration has naturally led to some violent thoughts, but I can't purge them in the realm of video games because I don't have a tv yet. Obviously, that means no cable as well. I've been so bored, I actually did some homework that isn't due until Thursday. Clearly, this is a sign of desperation.

I considered doing this other assignment where I have to write a short essay introducing myself to the instructor of my Statistics class (whom I can already tell I'm going to hate), but she really didn't give us any guidelines for it, which is among the more irritating things you can do to me. I can't stand not having clear direction. I love it when people give me freedom to do my own thing, but not in the realm of schoolwork. If you don't tell me what you want, all it results in is me getting a bad grade because what I gave you isn't what you wanted. It happened in IS Concepts, and it'll happen again.

Lastly, I've had the regular losing faith in myself and the rest of humanity thing going on lately, but I'm waiting until the anniversary of 9/11 to finish and publish that piece. I figure it's only appropriate, considering it's a central part of the piece.

Hiatus and College Stuff

I wish someone would tell me what that word actually means. Anyway, I've been busy trying to find myself and some spiritual crap like that. Anyway, I'm back at Marist now after an irritating move-in day. The radio show will probably be on again soon, and I'm going to see about recording shows to post here. I also have a good deal of stuff to talk about here that I just haven't found the time for yet. I'll post it sometime after I've had time to adjust my biological clock.

Just one thing to mention for now: I have an 8:00 am class, 4 days a week. My entire biology is going to have to shift dramatically before I can become capable of doing that. I don't know how I'm going to do that. I think it would be easier to self-exorcise a demon out of my own body than reset my biological clock to allow me to fully wake up and function properly at 8:00 am. As if that wasn't enough of a task, it's a Physics class. My brain hurts already.

I think the reason the class is 8:00 am is because it's taught by Rob Robinson, who has both a redundant name and a biology that is active early in the morning. I had him for an 8:00 am class last year as well. He apparently doesn't do afternoon or night classes. I guess he must be a werewolf or something. Or maybe he's just highly caffeinated. Who knows?

Oh, one last thing before I go: I wrote a pretty funny pilot for a sitcom, but I never made it or submitted it to Comedy Central. Maybe some other time if they have another contest or something. Really, I don't care that much. I'm not a writer really. The only real writing I'm going to do will end up in a video game I make. I already have a great one in the works. I can hereby guarantee that I will be filthy rich in 10 years.

And that's the end.

What do you want to see in the test pilot?

Well, I'm thinking about working on a test pilot for that Comedy Central contest, but I'm not entirely sure what I want to do with it. I was thinking some kind of reality show, only it would be a real reality show, not the crappy fake kind. I'm talking unscripted. So, I want to hear some suggestions as to what kind of stuff you, the good people of the internet, would like to see on TV, or at least on during the contest period.

Keep in mind the pilot has to be between 1 and 5 minutes, so I can't do anything too elaborate. Just give me something simple like "do a parody of When Harry Met Sally," or "just talk about stuff like on the blog," or "dude, I wanna see u dropkick someone." I threw that in because I would like to missile dropkick some poor sap, but will only do it by request. Tell me what you think. The power to change television forever is in your hands.
