Well...it's class registration time yet again. The way things (are supposed to) work are you wait until the registration computer system opens (around 6am-ish) and then hammer the crap out of it until you either get registered, or the system goes down. If the latter happens, you basically just repeat the whole thing via the phone registration system. Anyway, since i should be up all night, I guess I'll document my journey....

2:00am - 3:00am:
I had intended to write that intro paragraph before now, but it didn't happen. So, I wrote that. My fan is kinda broken. There's no way of making it fit back in it's stand. So, I did the next best thing and duct-taped it to a bed post. Over time, though, it's fallen more and more. Now it bumps into my shoulder if I lean back in my chair. I get bothered by it and move it away...this makes it fall back even farther. So, I decided to reduct-tape it. After two strands or so, the fan was in a worse position than ever, so I stopped. I might try to fix it again later...dunno. I chatted on aim a bit, too. I have to enjoy it while people are still awake. I finally got my hands on some Helmet albums, so I'm gonna do me some rocking out. Oh well, onward to 3am.

3:00am - 4:00am:
Caffiene
Keeps me afloat...
Anyway. Eric has fallen asleep. His snoring and hilarious wheezing has sent me to headphone land. Nothing will keep me from rocking out tonight. I'm working on the Noise Database again. I got bored of organizing things, so I started to slowly build the database. It seems to be working out well thusfar. Post-it notes are also cool. I wish I had some kind of digital camera (other than my webcam) so I could take pictures of stuff. Anyway. I'll probably tire of this database thing soon and start working on a dev page for it. That way my updates won't be plagued with nothing but my slooooow progress on this thing. There's really nothing on tv now, so...ooohh classic batman! score!!

4:00am - 5:00am:
Ok, my ears started to hurt. Mostly because Helmet is a lot more repeatative than I thought that they were. Oh well. I took a short break from headphones, watched some tv. That got old quick. So, I used some Q-tips to clean my ears a bit and then went back to headphones. I decided to queue up an Our Lady Peace album between the 2nd and 3rd Helmet albums so I could regain some sanity. These guys are actually playing at my campus, but the tickets have long since sold out. Oh well. I'd go to more concerts if I knew anyone who'd go with me. I mean, I'm sure they're out there, but I'm really lazy. And being social? Come on, now. I had to retype that word three times before I decided I spelled it correctly. So I think that answers itself. I'm still working on the database. I hit a snag while trying to use a 'text' field as part of a primary key. Well, I'm sure that means nothing to most of you (and by 'most' i'm guessing 5 out of 7), but I did manage to get it to work somehow. So I move on. The TV has been taken over by PenPen's Dreamcast. Eric is still sleeping. I think I'll take a break on this database and actually get my lab write-up done. Who says I can't be productive at 5am...

5:00am - 6:00am:
Well, as it turns out, I can't really work this late at night. So, to soda and pizza-minis I go. In an attempt to keep busy, I turned the TV back on. Captain freaking Planet. Oh yeah. I haven't seen this show since....well since the last time I had to register for classes. Now, the program is running, but registration isn't until 7am, so I have to sit here and keep my place. That means hitting enter every minute to keep from getting kicked...

w00t!
got through...possibly early...but I got the schedule I wanted. Well, I guess that concludes things. I'm gonna go take a nap before my chem lab. Then more sleep.

Meh.
