1) Intro to american pop culture - difficulty doesn’t seem like an upper division class. not complaining. quirky teacher. 2) Language of film - will be a lot of work, but interesting. excited for photo assignments. not excited about not having internet and thus, netflix to watch assigned films, at my place. 3) Social psych - AWESOME teacher. look forward to watching early crazy psych experiments. 4) Visual comm - only major class i could get. first session later today….hopefully chill. 5) Ballet - my first overweight ballet teacher. 6) Modern - successfully crashed at FC yesterday. tuesdays and thursdays rule.
so i book a flight that "returns" to LAX January 23
but it doesn’t actually return January 23. it returns the 24th due to the layover.
thanks a lot Orbitz. the itineraries your site produces are highly misleading. i will be back home from a transpacific flight two hours -instead of a full day- before my first class of the semester starts, jetlagged and unable to function. *whine over*
is there any way i can get them to change the flight without the $250+ charges?!
but i started looking for job openings in and around Fullerton since i’ll be back, lacking employment, in a week. so far i’ve applied to Panera, Borders, and Buffalo Exchange (ehh) online. i just emailed my resume to a Discount Dance Supply in Anaheim (…retail…..). crossing my fingers/eyes/legs/toes for that one! it’s a totally bikable distance. IDEAL. most of these places are. i’d probably bus to Borders though.
anyway, there’s a photography store down the street from my place and i wonder if they’re hiring. wondering about Henry’s and Fresh and Easy too. or IN N OUT. ruby’s diner looks fun.
even though it was 8:30am yesterday, January 5, seventeen hours ago here in Okinawa, i have to wait until it’s 8:30am January 5 in the frigginPACIFIC TIME ZONE to register for a class! ridiculoso.
i’m pathetic for changing the time zone on my computer to see if that would change anything though. while waiting, for the past hour i’ve been playing Requiem for a Dream on megavideo (i know, srsly. but hey, my wait’s long enough to wait The 30 Minutes) just to have Mansell’s eargasmic score in the background. Lux Aeterna’s really intensifying these fifteen remaining minutes.
