Ain't That A Kick In The Head?

To recap the madness:

School is finished and grades are in (almost all of them anyway):
Biology: A
Music: A
Health: B (fuck that shit)
Philosophy: Still out

The birthday was good:
Elizabeth came up to surprise me on Wednesday!
Dinner with her and folks at French restaurant of my dreams.
Spiderman with Nando at The Uptown: kinda sucked but I think it was the constantly booing crowd.

St. Mary’s that weekend (which was the weekend before last) was nice. Bought booze for the first time, partied a little (nothing too out of hand surprisingly) and then back to DC for a day to finish one last thing at school.

Graduation and Senior week were fun. A little sad that I wont be going down there as much in the coming semester and all. Went to the Door. Crowded, watery beer, took for ever to get said beer. So I had a great time! The ceremony was very nice. The speaker (Steny Hoyer, the House Majority Leader) was succinct and nice although he was using song lyrics to make comparisons to his generation and ours in regards to social change. In that portion of the speech he quoted Dylan’s “Blowing In The Wind” for his and then “Waiting For The World To Change” by John Mayer for ours. I was mildly offended to say the least. Then he quoted Martina McBride saying that “if (we) have the chance to sit it out or dance (he) hoped that we would dance.” Riiiiiight. But it seemed sincere for a politician so I’ll just give him the benefit of the doubt and assume that his speechwriter is older than he is and therefore just as out of touch.

This week I’ll be working. I need to move all the amazing amount of stuff in my car to Elizabeth’s new apartment, buy books for school (which starts at the end of the month) and in general have no summer vacation to speak of. Hooray! Eh…I’d be bored otherwise.
