This woman scares me. For everything she supposedly stands for in reviving German national pride positively, it all seems to center on race/culture again. I find this too unsettling to know what else to say, and I don't understand how the journalist who wrote this missed that.

I'm becoming increasingly convinced that doing the 5 year plan Reed has with the Pacific Northwest College of the Arts is what I want to and should do. I'll be able to gain some more technical skills and get two degrees for only one extra year and tuition at PNCA...plus I get a bit more time to develop my skills and ideas before I have to do a thesis and feel ready to do something I really want to put so much effort into. I am excited for my thesis and my qual, but I really want to get some more skills and time and practice under my belt first...

Finally awake.
It's strange, my roommate's phone rang again, exactly at noon. I asked him if there might be some kind of alarm on it and he said no, he thought maybe there might be some kind of electrical surge. I'm inerested in why this might happen...so odd.
If only today weren't saturday I could do some of the calling I need to do:

1) My bosses, the parents of Brian, the kid I will be nannying this summer to try to solidify a schedule and pay and whatnot...I'm kind of concerned that they haven't solidified anything with me yet...I don't even know where exactly I'm supposed to be the first day I'm supposed to be working for them and they haven't even met me yet...very odd...I think I'd want to meet the person who would be taking care of my child.

2) Nikon, to see if I may still be able to get them to fix my camera, even though I'm 20 days past the year...I paid a lot of money for this camera, haven'treally had any time to deal with having it sent away and warranty and whatnot with the end of school, and it has two broken pixels now...permanently...I'm really unhappy with that.

I keep thinking there are more things I need to do, but maybe they aren't calls...

The phone is waaay too prevalent in my life right now.

I'll buy that for a dollar!

I found a bike at the Bins(the Goodwill Outlet Store for non-Reedies), and I said, "I'll buy that for a dollar!!!@#!@#!@#!@#"

And they said, "Sold!"

My bike rules, except it needs new brake pads. I tried to go to two bike shops, but they had both closed...I'll go tomorrow. I am SOOO glad to have a bike : D

Another barbecue at my house tonight...fun as always :)
Good chicken, bratwust, and I hope burgers(and veggieburgers), since I didn't have any of those...

I need to do something and invite some of my friends over...
