Getting around the system
I’m sure I’ve already posted something like what I’m about to say…but deal with it 🙂 As I’m sure most of you know, my favorite TV show is Alias and, if I do say so myself, I’ve done a pretty damn good job of not watching TV for almost 6 months. That hasn’t stopped me from watching my show though. You see, I’ve been downloading (yes, it’s illegal) Alias. Everything was fine and dandy until my lovely university put up a firewall against downloading… WELL…I think I might have found a way around that problem – it’s called Wireless internet – and I love it.
This couldn’t have come at a better time either, you see – I’m starting to get a bit of ‘Cabin Fever’ from doing nothing all day. The campus is pretty much deserted because it’s the Easter Holiday, and I’m saving what money I have left, so I can’t go into town. Because of this, I’m staying inside (oh yeah, don’t tell me to go walk around outside..This is England…it’s raining…it’s always raining) and usually I watch movies – BUT I’ve overwatched every single flick I have. Which leads me to downloading. If anyone is reading this who feels like reporting me – DON’T!!!! thanks 🙂
Shoot – how bored am I? I just wrote two lengthy paragraphs on pirating tv shows from the states. Goodness. What else can I bored you with?? Well, in about 2 hours I’m going to register for classes for next semester and I’m actually really excited to do that! I’m crossing my fingers they’ll all still be open. I plan on taking 17 credit hours and finding a job next year. I’ll let you know what i’m taking after I’m sure I get in.
Yesterday afternoon/evening I spent my time catching up with my old friend from back in the day. It was awesome. Seriously, it was one of the best conversations I’ve had online in a long time. I couldn’t really tell you what was so great about it – it was just surreal to be talking to him after all these years. I hope we get to talk a lot more while I’m out here…
A few nights ago I was talking to my brother online – ok, it was more like I was talking and he said one or two words in reply. Anyway, I realized how soon I’m going home. It’s really soon; sometime in June…first week or second week, maybe. That’s no time at all – TOMORROW IS APRIL – APRIL!!!!! That means I really only have two months left out here. TWO MONTHS – where in the world did the time go??? #
My friend Abel sent me an email the other day while I was in Italy. It was about a program to live in Italy for the summer and teach English to children out there. I can’t tell you how much I want to do that. They pay for everything except for your plane ticket to and from Italy. If would do it in a heart beat except A) I have no money B) I need to be home with my family this summer – too much is going on at home and C) I didn’t apply and the application is due this Friday…
Ah. Right on. In the time it took me to write this I was able to download an episode of Alias. That means I’ll only be in here for another 2 hours or so. SCORE! Ok. I have to find something else to occupy my time now – sorry about the long post….does anyone even read this besides my mom????!!!!!
