(no subject) tired...but i have things to do... : /
i am trying to do my photos section. the hardest part is doing the people section because i have way too many pictures of people i know and i have to narrow it down.
plus, i have to pay my eddie bauer acct off today which means going there just to pay 15 lousy dollars. and i have to write all my dormies letters and send them off. errr...sleep? maybe not.

bbq and the performance of meat

tonight was fun. I got to hang out with some Reed friends that I rarely get to see. Tim and Patrick put on a bbq at the garden house and ligiya bebe, anne, chan, hanna and daniel, justin and tyler came. jeremy came home during and i got to talk to him some and he is going to come to hedwig tomorrow with meena and i. i learned that jeff hunt is living with him and ashley in his house. patrick and i went to 7-11 and tried to get marshmallows for the bbq but we only cam away with 1 package of sno balls and we roasted those. not bad actually...hehe. after the bbq ligiya justin chan and i went to the pool hall. justin is the manager so he can get in, and we played pool for a couple hours. chan is a cool guy, and ligiya is neat, i wish i were more socially adept so i could actually maintain friendships with people. i guess tonight was a good step because i ended up going to the bbq because i called to see if tim or patrick would want to go to the movie tonight and tim said they were having a bbq and invited me.

anyhow, tonight was fun and i should really make more of an attempt to create social interest. if i show interest in asking people to do things they might be more inclined to think of me when they are having social events. it's a strange thing to think about since in theory i try to be social, but i think i end up being more reclusive than i realize and become forgotten even if people do like me and wish i were around. anyhow, i also need to finish my slides so i can have my art showing...i'm thinking maybe i might do it the sunday before classes sometime after coffehaus. i'm also thinking of changing the name of the organization to something shed a couple pasts: jesse baldwin and also the fsu fiasco. i might have more luck getting people interested with a more interesting name also, and i'm thinking of expanding and maybe having a slam type thing...but then again, competition isn't really reed-like. i would however like to have some sort of performance event to get people more interested and less bored by the stagnation of such events. the problen is really getting people to be involved and comitted to being at events to perform so there will be a multitude of good performances.
for now, i just need to get my website finished and finish my slides...first things first.
oh, and all the other stuff i have to do before thursday. hrmph. : /
