Wake me up before you go-go

I know, I know. It's been entirely too long since I've updated. And I'm sorry...but I have an insanely busy life and stuff. So, a few random things from my life that you may or may not know:

1) I got accepted into the preliminary stages of the honors program at Meredith College. I have to go for a 2 day Honors Weekend, where I'll have an interview. We'll see how that goes.

2) can I even sum up that class? Today was quite an experience. In a 2 hour class, we discovered just how much Chels hates the Patriots, how much Chad misses "his" pen that's now mine, that Joey and I can have whole conversations from across the room without making a sound, that a certain person in our class plays for Green Day (inside joke), that the door really does lock from the inside, and how smart an Indian who's sticking their head on a train track is. As much as I complain about that's actually pretty fun.

3) Some people have amazing memories, especially when it comes to high school records from 30-some years ago. There's a guy at my work, let's call him peppermint guy (I'll explain in a sec), who has a habit of stopping by my desk and hitting on me. It's particularly creepy since he's like my parents age. The first time he stopped by was to ask me if a piece of candy in my dish was peppermint or cherry. Naturally, since I just put the candy in the dish, I wouldn't know. He then spent 10 minutes talking about his dad and granddad's peppermint farm and how you raise peppermint. Every time I work, he's found some reason to corner me at my desk for 5-10 minutes and talk about something. Yesterday was about his high school teams and their records. He has a pretty incredible memory, since he could also remember who, when, and where he played.

4) I've fallen in love with music from the 80's. I've never been a fan of hard rock before, probably because all I ever heard on the radio was the modern hard rock, and that is really, really annoying. But the stuff from the 80's is incredibly good.

5) Some days, like today, I wish I could move to a secluded island in the warm Caribbean where I would have total piece and quiet...that sounds really nice right now. But since I can't have that, I'll settle for a trip to the beach (as long as it's soon)
