It's been a long time
A lot of stuff going on since the last blog entry. Sorry, I've been a little busy. Let's see, Friday I finally finished by policy paper on British Missile Defense, I thought it would never be done, but sure enough I got it finished. Its not being graded by the teacher, but by his teaching assistant in Chapel Hill who I have never met, so I can't say I'm feeling too at ease over that. Hopefully she'll grade it fairly, or at least not too strictly. We'll see.
Interestingly enough I came down with a little bit of a sore throat problem about the time I was wrapping up the paper. Guess it was from the nonstop use of public computers and water fountains, along with the endless shaking of hands at the job fair on Wednesday. With all that going on I guess I can't say that I am too surprised.
I had a job interview with Target on Friday, lucky me I got to dress up all in a suit and go to class. Overall I think it pretty well. It was for a management postion and basically they asked you questions to see how you would react in a leadership situation. I was stumped by some of the questions too but I think I ended up doing alright.
This weekend was Charlotte's big series against Tulane, who is either ranked #2 or #3 in the country depending on which poll you look at. Charlotte ended up getting swept in three games, which stinks, but when two of the three starting pitchers are All-Americans, it's pretty tough. The Niners almost took Saturday's game, but couldn't complete the comeback for a dissapointing loss. It's funny, C-SET was showing today's game, and I actually got kicked out of the press box to make room, and ended up getting a bitchin' sunburn all over. It's gonna feel real good tomorrow. I did see some the highlights on TV, they looked pretty sweet. C-SET should show some more baseball games, even if it does mean I can't stay in the press box with the cool kids. And be sure to pick up the Tuesday UTimes, free on campus, to see my rundown of the week's action.
I had to go back home to sign some tax papers yesterday, and got to see my Aunt visiting from Ohio. We had a good time, went out to eat, shopped at the BJ's Warehouse Club, etc. It's funny, she asked me for something I normally couldn't afford at a supermarket, and all I could think of was Chex Mix. No fancy steaks, no lobster tails, no nothing. But if you think about it, Chex Mix is over two bucks for just this little bag. It is kind of expensive. Or, I'm just that cheap. One or the other.
