|01:30 am - No time|
I have been way too busy latley. Why am I so fucking stupis. I do not understand a thing that is happening in my Chemistry or Electrical Engineering class and I am almost 100% sure that I will und up with a D or an F in both. I want out. Why the fuck am I still in them if it is not my major anymore. How do they expect us to know what major we want when we come into college when we have never had a chance to take classes like these before? I don't care how many fucking blue ribbons Stevenson won, they completley faild me in every way possible. I am not at all prepared for college. I was able to make my way through that school without learning a thing from them.
The worst part is I feel like I am getting in one of those antisocial moods again. At the begining of senior year i did that to myself when I was worried about what college to go to and I feel like the stress here is doing that to me again. I need to make new friends here but I am to god damn busy and stressed. I need to find some business clubs to join but for some reason I am not. My entire week is just looking forward to the weekends here which I love.

|10:28 pm - I want Chipotle so bad|
So, it is a big month for chipotle and I am so excited. U of I Chipotle
is suppose to open in October (which I do not think will happen based
on current progress) and they just made anothey anouncment. McDonalds
anounced that they will be spinning off Chiptole with an IPO early in
the first quarter of 2006. I can not wait to buy myself some Chipotle
stock. The only thing that I am worried about is that pressure from
investors will ruin Chipotle. If investors force them to go with
cheaper ingridients and shrink the buritos, Chipotle is headed for
trouble. Here is the link

|12:55 pm - First update that is not at a wierd time|
Wow, so it is the middle of the day and I am actually updating my livejournal. That is kind of out of character for me. I am back from my one class of the day and just had lunch. IT was serving shit mixed with vomit so I decided to eat out which was definatley the right choice. I had lunch at Antonio's and it was pretty damn good. I never knew that you could put tortalini on pizza and have it actually taste good. Learn something new every day....
Current Mood: satisfied
|12:47 am - My first college test|
So i had my first test tonight. I hope there is a curve on it.... It
was for my electrical engineering class which i have no clue why i am
in since i changed my major to finance but whatever. I am also in a
good mood becuase I almost have a free ipod. I was reading an article
in the new york times about the site that gives away free ipods (the
one that everyone thinks is some kind of scam) and supposedly it is not
a scam. All you have to do is sign up for one of the offers and then
get 5 friends to do the same. I signed up for Rapsody Music service
which cost me like $5 or something and I was planning on canceling it
right away but I actually kind of like it. I also get 3 people here to
sign up also so all I need is two more people and then I will know if
it is a scam or not.
I'll let you guys know (and if you want to try it, here is the link)

|12:38 pm - Another weekend gone|
This weekend was very low key. We just chilled and had a great time. U of I won in football again. 2 and 0. Nice. Dan Wolff is down here although I have no clue where he is. I lost him last night. Maybe I should find him. I also got to see Jodi which made me very happy. I miss her so much. I can't wait till she goes here next year (and lives in IT). I have AEPi football practice at 4 and should also do some homework.

|02:20 pm - I did it|
Good news. I made it through a week without hating school. That means this weekend is going to be even better than all of the others. College is so much more than just the classes. I think what I am learning in my classes is trivial to what I am learning in general. I am living by myself and I am 100% completely responsible for everything. It can be stressful at points, but I love it.
On the same note, I was also thinking about my Jewish Identity. Anyone who knows me, knows I am not very observant but I love the identity and culture of it. Here at college, there are no parents to try to push religion on you (not that my parents ever did) but I realized that being Jewish is what I want to be. It is my heritage and I get angry to see people just throw it away.
In general though, things have been great here. I am starting to hate AEPi football, but I love going to the practices because the guys are cool. I honestly think we have one of the best pledge classes ever. I am planning on starting the weekend off right tonight so I should go get my Homework done. Tomorrow Shabbat Dinner at Hillel. Anyone else in? (I think the real question is does anyone form U of I even read my LJ?). This weekend might be kind of slow because it is sorority RUSH here but we will make the best of it (and get with the girls while they are depressed and vulnerable).
Current Mood: cheerful

|01:07 pm - I love college agian|
So I see a trend here. After every weekend I love college. After every week, I hate college. This week will hopefully be different. Dan, Mollie and Cogan were the first to visit me. We had a crazy fun time. I miss peopel from home but I am making so many new friends. If you have not booked a date to come visit me, you better do that now. My weekends are really booking up here. Rumor has it Dan Wolff is comming back this weekend, and who knows he may even get a bid from AEPi at this point ;).
On an AEPi note, we started football and anyone who knows me knows I do not do the whole football thing. With pledge football though, they do not take no for an answer:
Smitty: Evan, get open the ball is comming to you.
Me: I don't catch
Smitty: You WILL catch the ball unless you want it to hit you in the face.
Long story short, there was a ball comming really fast at my face and I actually caught it. This next part is even more amazing. I ran it in for a TD. NICE.

|10:48 pm - I miss everyone...|
So today I realized that i do miss home. I miss my friends. You guys are all amazing. You were always there to get me out of bed when I should be out having fun and always there to no matter what. Don't get me wrong, I love college and I am making tons of friends but right now I just want all of you around here with me. Even when we were just sitting at my house watching a movie or TV we had so much fun.
This all came out of the worst day of my life ever. I had 6 straight hours of class. 4 of them were engineering. The engineering came right after Calc. I realized I hate calc. Then I got to my engineering class and I realizaed that I do not want to do engineering. What the hell was I thinking. So I am done with engineering. I think I might try acounting. I have no clue though. Kind of scary. This is the rest of my life.
Ahhhh....time to go lay in bed depressed again.
Current Mood: scared

|09:08 am - Both sides are fun...|
So it is 9am and I am just getting back to my dorm room. I've said how the parties are great and everything but tonight I had so much fun being up till 9 and we were not even partying. We were all sitting around and talking and then we decided to go lay on the quad. From 5 am until 9 am we just laid on the quad (did you know there is a sprinkler system that goes on at night?!?). It was just such a chill night hanging with chill people. Who knows where this one is heading. I am along for the ride though.
PS - I broke my phone again and they are sending me a new one in the mail so that means I need everyones phone numbers becuase my screen is broken and I can not see them. So everyone, please leave you number in this form:
