Quote of the Day:
“Greek Week for me is an exercise in futility (much like the astrodynamics take-home exam).”
Shrew’s News – February 23, 2000
How many other things should I be doing right now besides typing at my computer? Let’s see, I have homework due on Monday, an exam and homework due on Tuesday, a project due and an IPPD review on Wednesday, another exam on Thursday, and one more homework due on Friday. Everyday will be like a soap opera – full of drama but not very exciting to watch. The light at the end of the tunnel, the thought that is helping me get through it all, is spring break. I will be going home on Friday for a relaxing week in Tallahassee. I haven’t made any plans for that week because I wasn’t sure if I would need to pack up my things so they would be ready to move to Ft. Myers. I guess I still don’t know since my dad hasn’t made a decision about his job opportunities.
Speaking of my dad, yesterday was his birthday. I got an email from the Warner Brother’s Store online a couple of days ago regarding an order I placed last November. One of the items was supposed to be a Christmas present for my dad but I have never received it. It is possible, according to the email, that the order has finally been shipped and I might be able to give my dad the item for his birthday when I am home. This is only a small possibility, the way I see it, and I have lost much faith in Warner Brother’s since the demise of their online store. From my viewpoint it seems that the holiday season wiped out the retail side of WB. The online store shut down before Christmas because WB couldn’t accommodate the volume of orders and now all of the WB stores will be closing. I can only speculate as to what caused this withdrawal but I am sure it isn’t that simple a matter.
Greek Week has finally come to an end. (Check out my feelings on the subject in the quote of the day.) Most of my sisters, including my roommate, are at the Swamp for the awards ceremony now. We’ll see if Alpha Chi Omega walks away with the trophy again this year. If that happens we will get to keep it permanently because our name occupies the winner’s plate for the past three years. With all of the effort we have been putting into this event it would be a major disappointment if we lost. It could very well happen, however.
Back to work, Lauren. I spent much of today in search of an air filter for the IPPD fluid tests but with no success. Most places I called didn’t have an idea what I was talking about, even though it seems like a simple request to me, and other places weren’t open at all on Saturday. Lowe’s seemed the most promising place to find what I was looking for but no luck there either. I wish there had been time for me to work on this last week so I wouldn’t be scrambling now but nothing is ever that easy.
