Five courses

Somone that goes to the same college I do (or at least to go here, some details point that she may have dropped out earlier) committed suicide on April 4, 2008. A notice was sent out via email today along with the appropiate condolances. That makes this the second suicide at my college in two years. I didn't really know either of them, though I think the most recent used to make me sandwiches in the caf. She seemed chipper enough then, but that was over two years ago.

I still need a job.

I also need to finish all these projects I've been putting off. There's my "second senior project" that I'm doing. I need to finish gathering data, run the data in simulation, compile the results, and make a pretty presentation.

I then need to finish the three projects for one class: Help write a group paper on a simulated company we ran during the semester; help research Netflix and then craft a presentation regarding its current strategy and where it should go from there; and write an individual report on a company regarding the same subject matter.

Geophysics is just a bunch of reading and one small presentation project. At least I don't have any finals except for keyboarding, which continues to go well.

This weekend was the school's Junior/Senior Dance Banquet thing. I heard it wasn't all that great; at least the food wasn't. I didn't go since it was too expensive and I knew it wasn't going to be all that great, so instead we had our own Junior/Senior in the quad. We all dressed up, had some other people over (11 total to be exact), and had a great meal. My roommates and I made a five-course meal consisting of:
  1. Appetizers of stuffed mushrooms and jalepeno poppers.
  2. Garden Salad
  3. Choice of either Seafood Linguine (Linguine in a white-wine sauce served with topping of scallops, mussels, clams, and shrimp) OR Chicken Parmesean over linguine.
  4. Dessert choice of Chocholate Cake with Peanut Butter Chocholate Icing with a vanilla pudding center OR Baked Apple Cobbler with vanilla Ice Cream
  5. Coffee
