These wild and crazy days

by Janie Jones

So I haven’t been blogging much.

I’m still a bit down in the dumps, but I’m trying to get better.  It’s a long uphill battle.  I’m totally exhausted, and classes this year wasted no time in burying me in homework.  Any one out there know the solution to:

A ball is thrown straight upwards at 18 meters per second.  What will its velocity be when it reaches 11 meters?  How long will it take to reach 11 meters?

Yeah.  I know math and physics are really important.  But who the f*&k really cares what it’s velocity will be and how long it will take.  Why can’t they do problems that have some practical application?  Something like:

A pissed off physics student fired a bullet at 120 meters per second into their textbook from 50 meters.  How long did it take the bullet to kill the physics teacher standing behind the textbook?

I spent over an hour trying to figure out this one problem.  Why you ask?  Because I am determined to understand and get the right answer if it kills me.  Or my physics teacher.  Which it probably will.  Probably me.  He already knows physics and I paid too much for my textbook to shoot it up just to get to him.

Anyway, I figured I deserved a break so I didn’t do a stitch of homework after I got home from school yesterday.  I lived like a rebel.  I got into my pj’s at 3:00pm, and I parked my ass on the sofa and watched TV all night.  Until 9pm anyway, when I started falling asleep on the sofa.  I love the nightlife.  When it includes sleeping, that is.

I did some more homework today and at 4pm I decided I deserved another break.  So I showered, cleaned the bathroom, changed the sheets on my bed and now I think Leif is making us some Porterhouse steaks and baked potatoes.  Now that is living a bit on the wild and crazy side.  That’s a whole week’s meat budget right there.  Hmmhmm.  And clean sheets to boot.  It’s like living a real person’s life at the Jone’s residence.

Hope you are all having a swell weekend too!
