Today SUCKS. I stressed out all morning making sure I didn't forget anything to take down to Rocklin, halfway through the drive, I remember that my Public Speaking outline is still sitting on the printer. So, I had to wing it on my speech, and thus I wasn't able to finish the whole thing when the timer went off. That is the most uncomfortable thing in the world for me, being unable to finish my thought completely. Oh, and I had to deal with the receptionist at my dentist's office, who does not speak up very much... also she hung up on me I think, because I was trying to clarify what she said.
At least there's a new RvB episode for me in abouuuut 40 minutes.
Criminal EventsDoing current events for an Administrative Justice class is not fun. As a matter of fact, it's downright depressing right now. I won't go into the details unless someone here really wants to have a raincloud over them for the day. People can be messed up.
Damn cats...So, I'm staying with the daughter of my mom's friend, and she's got cats. Usually this isn't a big deal, they don't mind me and I don't mind them. BUT, one of the cats seems to have developed an unhealthy obsession with all things me. This includes, but is not limited to: My shoelaces (which she will swipe at as I'm tying, fun), my backpack and it's straps, my water bottle, my tablet, my arm (Right on the bug bite), my leg (right on my OTHER bug bite), and best of all, my face!
Now, for anyone who hasn't had the pleasure of applying/removing contacts with cat allergens abound, it is fucking AWESOME. I spent the last hour rubbing my eyes, trying to blink out a phantom dust speck, rinsing out my eyes, and a good 30 minutes panicking and pacing back and forth. My eyes are bloodshot and I look like a druggy.
And I have a headache that just won't quit, and I don't know why...
Guest SpeakersSo our Investigations instructor brought in a deputy District Attorney to talk about all the dumb shit that cops and investigators can miss, which may lead to a failure to prosecute. He talked about what to look for, what your checklist should have, and he made sure to hammer that reporting is important, and can wildly swing how a case goes based on just a few details. All in all it was pretty cool to listen to what he had to say and I think that I got a lot out of it.
In other news, my first public speaking speech is coming up soon. :S
(Great) College ExpectationsI thought that when I started going to the new campus and all that jazz, it'd be super crazy and exciting, and I'd be able to relate to a bunch of people... but so far it's pretty much the same as before. Go to class, chat mildly with person next to me, get out of class, kill time, go to next class, go home. I dunno, maybe I'm expecting too much, or not giving it enough effort.
Anyone from Rocklin got a room?Please? I hate driving through the mountains (it's a 'passing lane', not 'match-the-speed-of-the-guy-next-to-you' lane) and I hate watching my money disappear at the pump. ;_;
Besides the lame drive, and the getting lost on campus, and the 5 hour periods with nothing to do between classes, it's all pretty cool. My Admin Justice classes are all pretty cool so far, especially my Combative Self-Defense and Firearms Familiarization (as if those WOULDN'T be the most interesting, amirite?). I'm also pretty pumped on Intro to AJ and Intro to Investigation. And there's a cute girl in Intro to AJ <:
As an afterthought, I've been getting super into Gunnerkrigg Court, almost at current already :C
