bleh / skating

Totally crappy day this morning.

Woke up tired, almost missed the bus, had to read through my first two classes and then my hour break, couldn't get anything to print in the CS lab for a long time (the windows print server was down) ... went to mary gate's hall (sigh) but nothing would print there, since I don't have money on my card, went back to sieg and printed from unix ... ended up with a nice character-wrapped paper that was hardly legible in the center third of the page because the toner was low. classes were all boring and slow.

There were a bunch of other things bugging me but I can't remember now. I'm in a little better mood now because...

I bought a skateboard!

I've been wanting a skateboard for awhile now, but now that my classes are so far apart and I don't ride my bike to school anymore, I'll skate between them and be on time. Mainly for my history class, which is a damn long ways away, but there's a nice smooth trail going most of the way there.

So, this just means I have to learn to skate again. I used to do it when I was younger, but I don't think I was ever that great then. How hard can it be, though, ya know? :P I'm just going to use it as transportation, not to ollie up on rails or anything.... (though that'd be fun to learn ... :-))

I'm going to go to campus this evening and skate around with Kenji, and he's going to roller blade. My goal is to get confident enough tonight so I can bring my board to class tomorrow and not feel stupid in front of everybody else. Kenji says I have to learn a new trick per day. I think that's a little ambitious... my trick for this week is going to be not dying. Oh, and going downhill and slowing myself down gracefully somehow (I've been watching people on campus... there seems to be like 3 ways to do it)

Anyway, fun's later... now's boring write-an-essay time. The topic:
Discuss the role of the chorus in Agamemnon, Oedipus the King, and Hippolytus. How are they similar? How are they different? Who is the chorus? What does the chorus do? What does the chorus add to the audience's understanding of the play?
Fun! *rolls eyes*
