School almost over...

My Freshman year is almost over.

So sad!  My goal of developing a Freshman 15 has been foiled.

Yea. Both kinds.

So far, I've taken my Brit. Lit final and I think I did pretty well.

Tomorrow (technically today) I have archeology...which I should be studying for.

Quick side note:  Have you ever noticed how some people spell that word archaeology...and it's not always considered wrong?  Strange.

Then I'm off on Wednesday....Then it's Anthropology followed IMMEDIATELY by Music Technology.

I'm trying to figure out how to post some MP3 files on here so if anyone knows how...and you felt like telling me...I might give you a cookie...or a hug.  The MP3s are my Midterm and Final projects and I mostly want to put them on here because I want to hear them in a different environment. 

That and my Final project is Decemberists inspired.  I'm calling it Shankhill Butchers even though its a mash-up of that song and some kind of ghostly ship yard and the Siren level from Sudeki.

Great game by the way, I highly recommend it.  Not sure how my brother felt about it, buuut I loved it.

Back to my schooling.  I Love it here in Montana.  I'm not sure people believe me when I tell them that I'm so happy here, but I really am.  I mean, I'm no lark or anything but there is something about the way of life that makes sense to me.  The weather is Awesome too!  Tarkio complains about the long cold winter, but I loved it.  I'm told that there is still a chance of cold weather/snow so I'm Totally excited about it all.  I think it would be really nice if i could get one more day of flurries as my send off...as long as I wasn't delayed on my flight home.

The Missoula Airport = sucky :  [

That said: I do miss the East Coast.  I've been listening to a lot of Billy Joel lately and I really miss it all.  There is a distinctly Eastern feeling to his music, I think.  I'm not just saying that because he sings about New York a lot, but his settings are just so familiar to me.  I didn't realize the romanticism of it all before I came here.  Sure, Montana has its own charm...but there is something to be said for Urban life.

Its really hard splitting your life down the Mississippi.

And with the thought of life back east comes the recollection of past and present loves.  I don't hate it, the waiting.  Its not agonizing anymore...its more like I'm playing chess.  Its a slow game, a strategic one.  I enjoy the feeling of liking someone, or several people.  I like having people on my mind like that, and for that reason I'm glad they're there...even if nothing comes of it.

Uptown Girl
Uptown girl
Shes been living in her uptown world
I bet she never had a back street guy
I bet her mama never told her why

Im gonna try for an uptown girl
Shes been living in her white bread world
As long as anyone with hot blood can
And now shes looking for a downtown man
Thats what I am

And when she knows what
She wants from her time
And when she wakes up
And makes up her mind

Shell see Im not so tough
Just because
Im in love with an uptown girl
You know Ive seen her in her uptown world
Shes getting tired of her high class toys
And all her presents from her uptown boys
Shes got a choice

Uptown girl
You know I cant afford to buy her pearls
But maybe someday when my ship comes in
Shell understand what kind of guy Ive been
And then Ill win

And when shes walking
Shes looking so fine
And when shes talking
Shell say that shes mine

Shell say Im not so tough
Just because
Im in love
With and uptown girl
Shes been living in her white bread world
As long as anyone with hot blood can
And now shes looking for a downtown man
Thats what I am

Uptown girl
Shes my uptown girl
You know Im in love
With an uptown girl

My uptown girl
Dont you know Im in love
With an uptown girl
My uptown girl
Dont you know Im in love
With an uptown girl
My uptown girl
