the sO So sO's have it
SO sorry about my lack of postings/comments. I am just SO nervous about my upcoming graduate admissions test, the GRE, bleh. I will be SO much happier when this is all over. The ironic thing is, I've been taking lots of photos, (albeit most of them in the library). I'm just too nervous to sign online and see dreadful emails about the upcoming exam to post any of them. :o(
This photo is how I feel right now: very small.
(I can't wait to get back to viewing and commenting again. I'll be perusing through all of ya'lls archives, hehe. Have a good one. )

grumblings of a fellow coffee drinker
I just took this photo! I'm getting some coffee in Panera, again, and this nice professor sitting next to me was happy to be in my post for the day. He is grading his students' papers and grumbling. I'm not sure if that's good or bad.
The music coming through the speakers is very cheezy jazz and the cake I ordered is over-priced and dry. Still, nothing like taking a coffee break with a free internet connection!

This is the older or 'retro' part of the Douglass Library. Most of the library was renovated about two years ago. The newer parts are really chic and very conducive to studying in a comfortable atmosphere. Still, sometimes I prefer to go down to the retro section. I especially love these nifty hanging lights.
Today is another rainy day, perfect for soup and review books.

RUTGERS' BIG WIN!
Well, it is so weird to say, but Rutgers Football remains undefeated! After many years as a losing team, Rutgers just had it's biggest game in its history! I am no sports writer so please read this article for better info about the miraculous turnaround win! http://timesunion.com/AspStories/story.asp?storyID=533155&category=Sports&BCCode=SPORTSMAIN&newsdate=11/9/2006
I feel like I'm in a bizarro world, where everything opposite is happening. First, the Democrats win back Congress(!), then Senate(!!), then Rumsfeld resigns(!!!), then Britney is hot again(!) and now this: Rutgers' football team is winning like crazy! It's been a most excellent week! I can't take credit for the photo because I couldn't go to the game. This is a shot my younger sister, Rabayah, took during the game that just ended an hour ago. I think there were over 44,000 fans there which must've been good for the team.
I can't pretend to be behind Rutgers football entirely, mostly because the school budget is disproportionately cut in their favor and students have had to make up the difference with inferior facilities, dorms, and textbook scams. However, I'm still happy we've got something to be proud of, so as a dear friend of mine put it, "I'll only say this once, GO RU!"

Getting off the NE Corridor line at the train station. I like the fact that some jobs still require old fashioned uniforms. I like special hats and trousers. Then again, I never had to wear one day in and day out. Have any of you ever had to wear some kind of uniform? Do/Did you like wearing one? I'd be interested to know.

let this be a lesson for all you drunk witches
Hello! I've returned. I got quite ill for a few days, but I'm doing much better now. On a walk today I saw this very funny Halloween decoration of a witch crashed into a tree. I liked this a lot because it was very original and looked like it was homemade. I feel like too many people buy the same decorations from the store these days. It's nice to see some creativity on the lawns of America!
