No more Mario

After many weeks (maybe longer) of being so bored that I have resorted to playing the Wii most days and convincing my roommates to follow me down this dark path, I am please to say I am now happily employed. I start next week and I couldnt be more excited to get out of my apartment and start my new job!

Bad Luck Please go Away

I havent blogged for  awhile but when you lived in Taiwan for six months everything seems dull and not worth blogging about. Not that anything exciting happened today but I feel like blogging about it. Here's how my day starts. Alarm goes off at 6:00, I decide to sleep till 6:30. Great now im in a rush to get to my 7:00 class on time. I get to class a little late only to find an empty classroom and a sign "In the computer lab today", ok I can handle that so I find the right computer lab and sit down at an empty computer.  At this point good luck seems to be on my side right?... False! My computer wont turn on, so I look around and watch as others who have the same problem try the rest of the empty computers. That computer lab was not having it, there were more students than working computers. So I do the logical thing and ask the girl next to me if I can look at her computer so I can still do the work. Here is how that went:
Teacher: Just share with someone next to you since all the computers arent working.
Me: Hey do you mind if I share your computer since mine isnt working?
Girl: Um maybe you should try a different computer.
Me: Are you kidding me? I just watched and there isnt another working computer. You dummy! (Alright I didnt really say this out loud but I was thinking it!)
What?? Ok. Whatever. I know I look like I just woke up but really you cant share your working computer? Its fine. I will find another partner. So I stand up and find another partner. As I do this the unwilling to share girl acts as if I was so rude to go find another partner. The teacher goes over to this girl and talks to her and then says " Hey she doesn have a partner so if anyone needs a computer to look off of."  This has got to be a joke. All I have to say is, out of control. This day is out of control.
My next class was boring to say the least but atleast I didnt have any problems. Then I walk all the way across campus for my third class, just to remember that class was in the Library. So I hiked all the way back across campus. Its only 10AM I hope this day gets better. Good luck please be on my side, and bad luck please go away.
