Back to School

I'm not sure how many of you are in school, like me..... though probably a fair few. This is a pretty high school/college aged blog, right? I think so. What is my target demographic, anyway? I should really look into that.... anyone know how I'd go about doing that sort of research? Who reads my blog? Housewives? Probably housewives.

Yeah, I'm going with housewives.

So I'm sure many of you ladies have children in college, like me. Course selection is a delicate process. Often time is a factor, so you have to wait up until the website grants access so you can nab the good courses before they fill. Then you have to find a schedule that works... no huge gaps between classes, nothing too early in the day. It's a science. An art. Ask your sons, ladies, I'm sure they can tell you.

But there's one factor you really can't adjust for until it's too late. For poor students like me, it's a problem.

Then it's back to the drawing board... and by then, you're stuck in the loser courses at 7AM.

More apartment news... and the RETURN

I'm back after a super long, unannounced hiatus. Sorry about that. Hopefully my loyal, intrepid followers are still around and will notice my return. :D

I won't bore you with the details of why I left, but I'm back now... back IN FORCE.

So. No gaming news today, life instead. My apartment is pretty rad. Newish building, clean... now you all know I had an inexplicable ant problem a while ago. Now I have an inexplicable fixture problem. There I was, minding my own business, idly leaning on the bathroom sink while I brushed my teeth... and BAM.

Now I'm no plumber, but I'm almost positive sinks aren't supposed to do that. Siiiiiiigh. Now I have to wait for the building handyman to fix it. Until then, looks like I'm brushing my teeth in the kitchen.
