:: Thursday, March 02, 2006 ::

Wow, this has been an intense week, filled with sleep, no sleep, sleep, no sleep.

I didn't get any sleep last night, so forgive me for terrible writing...

I had papers due on Tuesday and today, so there was a lot of writing of papers and not sleeping. There was then a lot of sleeping to catch up in between. Alas. My sleep schedule has been screwed up beyond repair.

Last Friday, my suitemates and I threw a party. Considering the cold weather, we decided to theme it to a beach party. It gave us an excuse to finally decorate our common room. It now has some really pretty construction paper cutouts that make it into a lovely beach scene. Alas, though, there were a billion other parties going on that night.

I did sneak out somewhat secretly a bit early so I could go out and dance. I really wanted to dance that night, so I found my outlet. I had a good time, and I also got a Felipe's super burrito. Yummm. It makes me want to say Felipe's like Dory in Finding Nemo says the word "Escape" like "ess-cah-pay!"

Last night, as I was staying up all night to write my paper, I had a great chat with a good friend. That was after another fun distraction.

Anyways, I'm pretty much done for the week. I don't have class on Fridays, and after today's intense day (starting class at 10 a.m. going nearly continuously until 7 p.m. - oh, the price I pay for having Fridays free) on top of not sleeping last night, I'm exhausted. If I had more energy, I'd go to senior bar, which is tonight. But alas, I just might go to bed at 9 p.m.

OK, no more complaints, from here on out it's fun fun fun!!!

Well... actually, matters regarding the sensitive subject of race are not necessarily fun, but here's a little tidbit!:

I call it, "They Have To Deal With Something Racial Every Day." haha.

So my friend is performing in Ghungroo, which is this annual celebration of Indian/South Asian culture done in music, skits, and dance. Although many non South-Asians are involved, the majority of the cast is actually of that heritage.

Before the final performances, the performers had to listen to the standard Harvard theater/stage fire safety speech, and the guy giving it tells the performers, "If there's a fire, you need to head out. Don't try to put out the fire yourselves; leave it to the professionals, like the firefighters. It's OK for us to leave the work to them... it's like outsourcing; you guys know a lot about that, right?"

AHHHH!!! hahaha

The fire safety manager then goes on to talk about how there's a heart defibrillator in the lobby: "All the instructions are on the board, and well, I'm sure two thirds of you are pre-meds anyway, so you'll be fine..."

Inappropriate!!! Haha, how fawkward!!!

Quote(s) of the Day: "What if they're sexually incompatible?!? You don't buy a car without taking it out for a test drive!!!!!"

"Masturbation is the opiate of the masses!!!"

"I don't care about what's going on in Afghanistan ... I just care about my ORGASM!"

"Do you like them small and perky?" "All you need is a mouthful! I need ice cream."

"My friend's a ho, so he asks me for my advice..."

"She leaves you wanting more, but then all you get is sex..."
