I am so excited to learn French. I can't take it until next fall semester, but still. I am super excited. I've been listening to Carla Bruni's music a lot lately and she is incredibly talented.

I crave closeness but I don't know how to let people in.

D&D ended early last night and Mike and I ended up talking in my living room until quarter after six in the morning. I'm really glad we ended up talking. I've been feeling so lonely and lost lately, and I had forgotten how easily I can talk to Mike.

I'm watching Across the Universe right now. So far, I don't see why so many people love it. It's pretty horrible.

Christmas went well this year. I got some nice things.

I miss being close to people.

I bought the majority of my textbooks last night. Michelle's going to let me scan the assignments from her copy of our Christianity Through Time book so I don't have to spend fifty bucks on one. Love her. I'm now about three hundred dollars short of being able to pay for next semester. I've got 150 dollars to deposit in the bank, so that makes me 150 short. I'm selling my old ipod and my calculator. I'll probably get 120 for both combined. So that leaves me thirty dollars short. And I have to pay this by January 5th, otherwise it's overdue and Loyola gets to add on another 1.5%. Which is only sixteen dollars, but still. *sigh*

I'm displeased by my final grades:
Theology of Faith - A
United States Since 1865 - A
Intro to Forensics - A-
Survey of Islamic History - B
Calculus 1 - B
So, that's a 3.468. I am .032 away from being on the Dean's List. Gr. I'm confident that I will definitely pull all As next semester, though. I hadn't done a single calculus assignment since chapter two and pulled a B, I never paid attention in forensics, and my Islamic history professor was an unfair grader.

Loyola says: Hey there, Hannah. We reserve the right to fuck you in the ass starting on January 6th. And don't worry. We will take advantage of that right.

O Livejournal, thank you for being such a kind distraction when I need one so desperately.

Well, my first semester of college is pretty much over. Seven more and then it is time to start my career. And right now, I really do not know what I want that to be.

Finals started today. Calculus was difficult. I probably should have put some effort into the class during these past fifteen weeks. Oh well. I already had a B in that class, and he drops the lowest grade, so there is no possible way that the final could hurt me. I got a 91% on my Forensics final. That upset me. I think one of the "correct" answers was wrong. I am ending that class with a 91%. Unfortunately, my professor considers that to be a B+.

Tomorrow is my Theology final. I should be studying, but instead I am writing this. Nobody understands anything from the second half of the semester. Tits.

I rearranged most of the furniture in my dorm. The room seems huge now. Until I was going to bed last night, I had not realized that a lot of the furniture is now set up like the furniture in my bedroom at home. Funny, that is.

I always want to write more in here. I always want to put down my thoughts, my feelings. But I never can. I have all the perfect words in my head, but I can never put them out there for other people to see, to judge.

Sorry, Grandma. You'd have been 79.

Caitlin is in the process of moving out. I am crossing my fingers and hoping that I don't get a new roommate next semester. Please, please, please.

Happy birthday, Grandma. You would be seventy-three today. I wish you were still here. I miss you so incredibly much. I love you. Always.

Alright, I'm going to update this baby for real.

I've been tearing my hair out this week over registering for classes. I've had the classes I REALLY REALLY wanted picked out for weeks, but we register by credit hour, so I've just been watching those classes fill up all week. I'm skipping Islamic History tomorrow to register. I'm shooting for: American Pluralism; Iran: Film, Society, and Culture; Theory of Knowledge; Writing Systems of the World; Human Origins; and Intro to Cultural Anthropology.

I'm in the middle of writing a five to eight page forensics essay right now. I really wish I had had a better professor for that class. Then I probably would still be considering going into forensic science.

Islamic History was a let down. The kid in front of me is a know-it-all, the girl behind me challenges the professor on everything he says about Islam, and the assistant who does the grading is a cunt and takes points off for not stating irrelevant or given information.

Calculus is a bitch. The professor does a great job lecturing, but the assignments are nothing like what we do in class. I could do well in that class just showing up for exam prep days.

US History Since 1865 is the best class I have ever taken. Ever. I love Mr. Kelleher, too. He's so knowledgeable and passionate about history. Every day, I go into class, talk to Matt for a few minutes, then once the lecture starts, I look at the clock, and it's already over. Time flies in there and I wish it would last forever. I really love his teaching style. And I actually enjoy writing essays for that class.

Theology is alright. Definitely not my cup of tea. Ironically, though, that's my best class. But that's just because Professor Nicholson is super easy. He's one of my two professors who let us take notes on the computer, so I spend those 75 minutes doing anything but paying strict attention to the lecture.

I'm really excited to come home for Thanksgiving. I don't have Wednesday plans yet. Thursday is Thanksgiving. Friday, I'm going to Target with Crystal at, like, 4 am for Black Friday sales, then Ray and I are going to Chipotle and New Moon. =D Saturday is D&D, thank God. Then Sunday morning, I'm shippin' back to Chicago.

Next year, Cayley, Katie, Michelle and I are planning on rooming together. And the upperclassmen dorms here are all apartment style. So, it would be Cayley and Katie in one bedroom and Michelle and I in the other. Each bedroom has a full closet, there's a hall closet, a kitchen, a bathroom with a linen closet, and a living room. So nice. I'm really excited.

Change of plans.

I told the RA that I thought it over. And I don't care that all of Caitlin's friends are no our floor. We have a really great room that I don't want to give up, so if she really has that big of an issue, she can move.

"The silent treatment doesn't work, and avoidance is just unpractical. Until you face things head-on and are totally honest, you will never achieve the closure you need"

Really? Really?

Well. I'm 99% sure that I am moving out of my dorm this week. Caitlin and I broke our 10 day silence. Apparently, she's been extremely uncomfortable around me since the beginning of the semester. I'm glad she told me this. Three months in. -_-
I offered to leave. I'll really miss the room. It's probably the best room on our floor. Fuck.
