Mal : heat :: oil : water

Remember having to answer analogy questions in high school? :)  I loved having to answer those on the SAT.

Heat and I, we seriously just do not mix.  Which makes the fact that I live in North Carolina really unfortunate.  It's been above 90 degrees since the beginning of May, and was above 100 most of July. 

Today, I got up at 9:20 and started getting ready for my class at 11:00, Music Appreciation.  Because I absolutely have to eat breakfast, it takes me longer than most people.  Plus I'm just slow in the mornings because of how much I am NOT a morning person.  The class is, naturally, in the Fine Arts Building, which is pretty much on the opposite side of campus from my dorm.  I left at 10:30 because I've never been in this building before, so I wanted to make sure I had plenty of time to find the classroom.  It took me about 12 minutes to walk there.  Another guy entered the building the same time that I did, and we both headed for the office that was right by the entrance to ask where to go.  Apparently we're in the same class, because he asked for the same place that I needed.  The woman, whom I did not see, answered him, "Oh Scott Concert Hall?  Dr. P is not back from town yet, so you're free today.  He will have class on Tuesday.

Seriously.  I got up and got ready, walked all the way across campus and got nasty sweaty and gross, only to have to turn around and walk all the way back.  Thank heavens I decided to wear my tennis shoes because my feet would've been killing me in flip flops after 25 minutes of straight walking.  Most teachers email students when they cancel class, but he didn't.  But hey, if this is a sign of how he is the rest of the semester, I think I might just like this class. :p

By the time I got back to my room, I was soaked and literally dripping with sweat and so lightheaded that all I could do was lay down and fall asleep again till 12:40.  Then I woke up, ate lunch, and went to State & Local Government at 2:00.  I'm not worried about that class.  The professor seems nice.

Tomorrow, I only have two classes and am done at 11:50.  That's a pretty solid start to the weekend, during which I will have a good deal of reading to do, so I hope I sleep well tonight.

    I'm only saying this, because at 32, I look back at those days as such incredibly fun times with my girlfriends and guy friends...I didn't appreciate the freedom then as I do now.

    Woop it up!! I will not regret it.
