It's cold out. And it's raining - not the kind of rain that's fun and worth while, but that stupid little caught-between-drizzling-and-spitting-and-maybe-actually-raining kinda rain that's just... uncool.

I had a midterm today, for a class I don't even understand.

I was pretty much well conned into joining some club I probably won't enjoy.

I had to work outside - in this weather - for the last three hours.

Stupid BitTorrent is telling me that, instead of taking two days to download my anime, it decided this morning that it's going to take a week or two. Which means I probably won't have Neverwinter Nights for... oooh, say, three weeks? (fuck. Seifer's even back nao D:)

...but you guys know what?

Today was an amazing day. And I feel strangely at peace with myself.

I went to Soils class at 8 this morning, for an hour, then math came... and it was optional, so I came back here and cussed at BitTorrent for being slow. An hour later, I went to Plant Science and took my midterm - considering how much I haven't learned in that class and how stupid it is, that damned midterm wasn't all that bad. I'm most likely going to pass. Then Plant ID class was just a plant tour - normally very imperative that one goes on the plant tours, but... it was for herbaceous perennials, so instead of tooling around campus and letting the long tours cut into my lunch time, I didn't go. Besides, the test isn't going to have livesamples for when that comes up, there's going to be pictures. Of them in spring. Hoo-hah. So half of my classes this morning = unvisited. And lunch?

Oh fuck yes, lunch was awesome. Free pizza, w00t w00t! And the school started a horticulture club, for the seniors and juniors of the program to be able to get to know eachother. Well over half of everyone in the Hort. program showed up, and there was FREE PIZZA (and pop - I grabbed some extras on my way out so my fridge here is stocked, hwahwa). And the club is mostly about fund raising, which is why it sucks. ...but, because we're fundraising, we'll get to go on trips and badass competitions. >=D f#@% yes. AND THERE WAS FREE PIZZA. No icky caf food for lunch, yeeey~

And after lunch, I had my three hour outdoor lab for landscape management.

And I loved it.

Sure, it was cold, and that pussyass-sucky-rainy raining, but it was fun. We tooled around on the mule and the gator after moving a few plants around in the nursery and pulling weeds outta 'em, then we weeded the gardens around the Vet. Tech building (I hate the vet. tech people, but kicking the shit out of mushrooms (literally, I got to kick them everywhere) was damn fun). Then we pruned the shit out of this poor little ground-cover shrub (called a "winter creeper", it's frickin' awesome, I want one) but since only five of us did it we like, get bonus marks or something for doing more than everyone else (and considering each lab is 5% of my final mark that rocks). Then we tooled around some more on the mule or the gator, and planted a whole shit load of mums out by the main sign (so if any of you drive by Ridgetown anytime soon, and you pass the college and see the kickass garden by the sign, think of me, awright? XD). We learned that the people from the town that are more apt for commiting doucebagger often steal plants from the nursery from the school, because they seem to be under the impression we're all funded or something, or that the plants are free for us and therefore them or something. We're nooooot. Our school has to buy those plants you assholes, so stop f#@$ing stealing our shit. Don't steal our compost either, we don't spend lots of research and time and money and work on it for you to think it's there so you can have it. ...Anyways, I'll stop ranting.

While cleaning up the garden before planting mums we found a coke bottle filled with a very questionable yellow substance. We all knew what it was, but Chris (teacher) flat out told us he refused to admit that that's what it might be; he kept on telling us he would designate it as being "aged coke that has lost it's pigments and turned flat and yellow". We decided to let him be like that, as he threw out the bottle without directly touching it. XD

After that, we tooled around A LOT more on the gator and found saplings and dug 'em up and put 'em in pots for the nursery. I found a red oak, and I fell in love with it. <3 It's my baby. I wanna take it home or something, but I need to ask Kennedy (teacher) or Chris (also teacher) first D= because Kennedy was pretty excited about it, too. -clings to tree- but he can keep his tulip trees, I want my red oak D:

Ah well.

It was a lot of fun, that's definately my favorite class. <3 <3

So today has been AWESOME so far.

If this luck of mine keeps up, hopefull BitTorrent will like, go faster and get my anime download done by tomorrow D=< I don't want to have to wait all weekend with a 3/4 finished anime download sitting around >3> It wouldn't be so bad if it let me watch the episodes, but it seems to download in random peices, so I pretty much well will have NOTHING actually on my computer until the download finishes.

Remind me to send and extra <3 to the friend who showed me how to download all the coolest free shit in the world. God, I love making friends with hackers. XD
