Stanford Update

I'm about to go to bed (it's 2:46 am) and get up at 8:15am to "read" 2 books and write a paragraph on each for PWR (Stanford's course that teaches you how to write, basically. Program in Writing and Rhetoric). Luckily it's about how teens are presented in the media, and I'm all about teens in the media.
So things here are crazy busy.  I feel like I'm constantly working so I'm going to try to start working ahead. Especially after handing in a problem set for vector calculus that I'm sure I'm getting less than a 50% on...
In between the working, though, I have been having fun.  In the beginning, life was not so busy, so my friends and I would have laundry parties.  Now when I do laundry, I bring homework with me in the laundry room and do it as my clothes are washing and drying.
So far I've written two papers, one on Drew Barrymore and the other on Boethius. Oh college, how you amuse me.  My roommate's name is Lex (like the Luthor, but that's not actually his last name) and he's from Connecticut. I'm not especially close to him, but we get along well, so that's good.
I do have friends here, as I alluded to before, and they're all amazing and special in their own ways.
The biggest difference between college and high school is the chill factor.  You slept through a lecture? Not a big deal! Everything's on you, so you can choose whether or not to go to lecture.
I'm sure there's more, but I'm about to collapse.

For some reason (aka because of Jamie Tam's shared library love) "Going Through the Motions" has been stuck in my head, and since last night, so has "Something to Sing About."  Even though I've never even seen the episode "Once More, With Feeling," the music is still really good.
Have some lyrics:

Every single night the same arrangement
I go out and fight the fight.
Still I always feel the strangest strangement
Nothing here is real, nothing here is right.
I've been making shows of trading blows
just hoping no one knows
That i've been going through the motions
walking through the part.
Nothing seems to penetrate my heart

I was always brave and kind of righteous
Now I find I'm wavering.
Crawl out of your grave you'll find this fight,
just doesn't mean a thing.

She ain't got that swing

Thanks for noticing!

She does pretty well with things from hell
but lately we can tell she's been going through the motions.
Faking it somehow.
She's not even half the girl she....ow

Will I stay this way forever?
Sleep walk through my life's endeavor.

How can i repay you-
I don't want to be...
going through the motions,
loosing all my drive
I can't even see, if this is really me
and i just want to be....

I'll try to update again with more details, funny anecdotes, all that good stuff. For now, goodnight!
