Much bashing of USC today in Analysis. Heh. Many accents today in folklore. Much moaning over the old printers today in Lab. Many questions today in Stats, but learned important thing about calculator -- it will do standard deviation for me! Wow! Went to library, checked out some books about folklore for light reading. Met with research advisor. She thinks I qualify for funding, wants me to apply for a research grant. O.O! Also, set my schedule. One hour lab work, one hour training, and one hour teaching per week. I will get to teach 9th graders, yay! Downside: scheduled up the wazoo, think I may be late to Friday's Stats class for the next eight weeks. Oops.

Must write paper and do readings for tomorrow. But I'm sleepy....

Okies, I just FINALLY managed to catch up on reading my Friends entries. Yeesh, you miss for one little day and things REALLY pile up. I'm scared to look in my inbox.

Remembered to turn on "Enterprise" about thirty minutes in. Oops! Been doing that a lot lately, totally forgot about "Angel" on Monday. Now I'm watching "Glory Days" and "West Wing" at the same time. Which means I'm not writing my paper. Heh. Um....

It's about ethnicity and culture. Specifically, how to I identify myself and how much does my culture affect me. Discussing it with mom has just made me more confused. The *culture* (or rather, sub-culture) I grew up in was science fantasy fandom. Seriously. My parents met at a sci-fi club, my mom was president of a club, my dad had one of the best collections in the US, conventions were normal outings for us, I took my life lessons from the schools of Star Trek and Heinlein. But that won't wash with the professor. So, I can talk about how my ancestors were forced to march the Trail of Tears and live on shitty reservations, or how another set of my ancestors came to America due to famine, but I really have no emotional connection to it. Cultural heritage-wise, I'm screwed. Maybe I can do something with my regional background as a Valley Girl along with my roots in Mississippi? Whatever, I'll think of something.

I was bad yesterday and bought a CD. I'd gone to Best Buy to pick up the new Serious Sam game for Mark's birthday (they didn't have it, those bastards!) and just picked it up. Total impulse buy. Bad Cloudie! *slaps wrist*

Comics I bought today: Young Justice #42, Spider-Girl #44, and Alias #6.

you're getting sleepy, very sleepy....

I just realized that my headache is probably because I forgot to have caffeine today. Well, not forgot really. The vending machine took my money but didn't give me any Mountain Dew in return. Bad machine!

I finished my paper, yay! Still need to do the reading, though. Tomorrow. Yeah.

I've been desperately trying to figure out how to attend APE this weekend, but I don't really think it's possible. First off, it's in San Francisco and I'm in LA. Um. I could drive, NOT! I could fly for only $100 roundtrip, but I'd still have to get a room and money is stuff. I'd want to buy things. Mmmm, comics.... *drool* But!, no money. *sigh* Maybe I COULD drive up, sleep in my car, not buy so much. No, probably not. I'll content myself with ComicCon later this year. But it's so far away!!

Oh, and speaking of ComicCon, I'm going to go ahead and buy my ticket soon. Prices are discounted right now. Alseides, how about you? Oh, and Oshun Anat, are you going to come this year? Or at least to Anime Expo again?

And speaking of Anime Expo, we really have to start making our costumes Alseides. I want to be a GOOD cosplayer!

I'm sleepy. I should go to bed now because I have another long day tomorrow.
