Turning over a new, perfect leaf

What it do, peeps?

In case you don't know what that means, I just said "what's up". Yeah, I don't get it either. "English" is changing ever so rapidly around me. I also learned that I can also say "what tha biz?". Don't you just love the "English" language? Young people never cease to amaze me. I can't wait for the next person to say that to me seriously so I can slap them.

So I'm in the full swing of school now. I have to say, it's not bad, though I'm incredibly tired lately. Probably from my different sleep scheduling. I find myself taking naps now when I come home. In fact, I'm yawning right now, and it's only 9:56 pm. I should go to sleep now, but Mike Jones is on now and he's oh-so-addictive to listen to ^_^.

With school comes the daunting task of finding my textbooks and at the lowest price possible. Humber, I found out, actually raises their prices in their bookstores and they're the only school that does that. What the hell? Nice one, Humber. So now I have to scour all these publishers websites (only legal ones, though. Great.) and check out used bookstores for my textbooks. Last semester someone else photocopied all my books, but this year I'm going to take the more legal route and just buy 'em. Besides, I hate it when the words are cut off sometimes.

My program coordinator recently referred me to a law firm who is looking for a legal researcher. $15/hour, 10 hours a week! Fingers crossed, toes crossed, legs crossed, arms crossed, eyes crossed. I really hope I get this job. Legal researching is one area I'd like to get into anyway, so this is perfect. So perfect. Oh, if I get this job my year will be starting off perfect.

And also to start off my year "perfect", I actually got myself an agenda and a binder with dividers, which is a huge step for me since I haven't used a binder since highschool! This is how I'm going to start getting organized! No more laziness! Even though I always start off "prepared" with equipment and stuff, by the end of the semester my agenda usually isn't filled passed the first month and I end up tossing around loose notes. I really hope that doesn't happen this semester. I need to get my life together.

For the first time in three years of me being at college, today I finally checked out the newly constructed gym and found out they have a couple of classes I'm interested in, like boxercise and hip hop dance. I realized I need to start toning up again and get active. This is a good start, except that they start in the evening and it's a bitch and a half to get down there. Oh well, I shall make the effort even though I absolutely hate the area at night.

Alright, back to the grind of finding books. Boooooooo.
