Heroes, Thomas Friedman, English and the Crazy Street Preacher.

Today was, interesting. After a boring Anthropology test, I skipped BIO100 class (yeah i know, and i don’t care) and a mostly (except for a little brain tease and a chapter of the Baghavad Gita) boring ENG class. I ran into ASU’s crazy preacher and a disappointing trip to the library, i finally got home in time for Heroes.

So, from the beginning.

My Anthropology test was fifty questions long and took about fifteen minutes to finish, it was mostly a boring play with words. I am quite certain that i failed it, because i apparently wasn’t paying attention in class as well as i thought (next time, I’ll have to refrain from reading Yeats during class) After that I walked over to breakfast. I read a bit afterward and then after my iPod battery died I went back home to recharge it and maybe watch TV before English, since I had already decided to skip BIO.

I fell asleep and woke up just in time to get to English, where I read the first and second chapters of the Baghavad Gita, because the teacher went on analyzing Thomas Friedman’s latest Op-Ed. I am a big Friedman (The World is Flat) fan, but unfortunately, my English class dissected and analyzed the article past the point of no return. Which made me mad, because they missed the whole overall (holistic) point of the article.

Then after class I ran into the Preacher who goes by JK (Just Kidding maybe?) He went on for about an hour and a half screaming about Jesus hating everyone and how he was a prophet of the lord because he wasn’t a “perverted homo masturbating weed-head” like us (which made everyone laugh). He only seems to serve as comic relief for us. He promised to be there again, so i have to remind myself to take my Bible to contradict him, if he ever stops shouting that is. Which leads me to believe, sincerely, that he is on something, weed perhaps? or maybe some prescription stuff?

After this, I managed to get home again, eat, sleep for about an hour, then watch some Stargate Atlantis and then finally Heroes!

Heroes: Villains (I love writing that) episode 303: One of Us, One of Them, started out with Flint, The German, Knox and Peter (in Jesse’s Body) starting out a bank heist, while Mama Petrelli purposefully gave Sylar (Gabriel Gray) a new ability, and Noah Bennet meet his new partner, who happens to be (as i predicted) Sylar, who is now beginning to explore a new ‘good’ side.

At the end of the episode, Micah meets Tracy (who, as i also predicted, is a clone) and Future Peter finally pulls Peter out of Jesse and then everything goes to hell as Knox escapes, Sylar harvests Jesse’s power, Flint gets shot, and The German is possibly dead, much to my grief because The German seems like such a calm and twisted individual.

Meanwhile Claire and Meredith have a little masochistic mother-daughter talk, when Meredith forces Claire to explore her feelings via locking her in a metalic train wagon and heating up.


Work Is Mostly, Well, Boring.

Today was my first day working without a helper. I did perhaps a grand total of ten things. Among them was answer three calls, make copies, three times and take out the trash.

But the good things are: that the people are very friendly, nothing like where I used to work, and I get to do homework because I have the time for it.

So instead of actually doing homework at work, I worked on the design for my tattoo(s), which I’ve decided I’m getting without my mother’s approval and against her well-meaning advice. I’ll just have to make sure dad does not find out, or I’ll never hear the end of it.

I’ve decided on a chain of tattoos on the front of my upper arm, The first is a Celtic themed circle representing Folklore, the second a treble clef representing music, the third is the Heroes Helix representing well, Heroes, the next one would be probably an Australopithecus afarensis  skull, representing Anthropology, and the last one (for now) would be an artistic design of the Double Helix representing, naturally, DNA and Genetics.

Today I also had my first BIO test, and it was insanely easy. I think I can just skip the lecture and show up for the tests, but I won’t. Tonight I have the BIO LAB, for which I haven’t been turning in the homework because I forget to, I actually do it in class, during the lecture part, because I get bored, but I haven’t actually and physically turned it in. I suppose I should, but eh, whatever.

BIO100 and ENG101

At this point I really hate my biology class. The subject we’re tackling now is evolution, and since I love evolution I actually though that I would love it, but it turned out to be a Evolution for dummies, much like that of Dr. Nash at the beginning of ASM104 (except she was good at introducing the material) and we’ve dragged onto day four. Having taken two whole days to discuss Creationism, which Dr. Nash talked about for maybe a minute. That was a fucking pain, because everyday of my life I have some creationist breathing down my back. Having my BIO teacher discuss all of it, is by far, almost suicidal.

I’m hoping that the teach will pick it up and actually do something of interest rather than babble on for the idiots, in which case, i might have to sneak in one of my good books in and read while he rambles on for the kidos.

Now about ENG100. It is an OK class, like I’ve said, it has the potential to be amazing, if we had more time, and i wasn’t stuck in such a um, pathetically idiotic, group. Today, my OCD got the better of me in the middle of class, I had to go fix the flag, which was bunched up on the pole rather than placed correctly on the pole. and after that I had a minor problem as I counted the chalk marks on the board and actually resisted wiping them clean. Which I will more than likely not forget for about a year or ten. There were eleven chalk marks on the board by the way.

Some idiot said that the country was founded on Christian values, my though was: “huh?” I shall say no more, because if I go on, I will use cuss words and that is never good.

After I got over this, we moved on to more readings and ended up talking about Machiavelli again. The teacher brought up the issue of the torture in regards to the presidential debates. And again all I have to say: Human Rights violations, if we want to preserve our image and enforce them, or have any moral standing, we must first eliminate them (violations) at home.

Then we discussed Stephen Carter, my though was, he’s an idiot. In a later post, I will tell you why.
