I also played a card game with Kristy (I think that's her name and how she spells it) in the bus on the way there, which was fun as well. (On the way back Kristy was in front of me and Nathan sat next to me, but he mostly slept and I read a book.) So anyway, whee.
In other news, my car is having all kinds of exciting brake problems, so it gets another trip to the mechanic tomorrow. The left brake doesn't work, which makes stopping interesting because the car pulls really strongly to the right when I brake and also it takes a lot longer to stop. Like I don't have enough black holes to throw money into right now...I'm sure dad'll pay for it, but I was hoping to hit him up for money for textbooks and now I would feel bad if I did that, since he's paying to have my damn car fixed again...*sigh*. I finally got through to a human being in financial aid, at least, and after a good 15 minutes they determined that they hadn't bothered to put my information together because I'm an OGI student and they're not used to dealing with that. So they're going to send me Yet Another Form to fill out, and then they better give me some damn money, or at least a loan. As I told dad "If I don't get the form in the mail tomorrow, I'm calling them Monday. You don't want to *know* what I'm calling them if I don't get the form by Monday."
So yeah. But I had fun at the beach. My hair is full of sand. My shoes are full of sand. My car, in addition to having cranky brakes, is full of sand. My backpack is full of sand. But it's fun sand, so it's all ok. Except for the brakes, which are still bad. But not because of sand.
