Have finally found something irritating about one of my flatmates.

Every time she walks in and sees me in the kitchen, she asks what I'm making.

"Well," I do not say, "if you would use your eyes, you would see that I have peanut butter and bread out. If you would like to exercise a little logic, you could probably guess"

I also do not say, "Frozen rolls, just like it says in big letters on this bag I'm holding, you moron," or, "Fried baby! It's my mother's recipe," although I'm deeply tempted to.

What is more irritating is that she then wants to have a conversation about how she lived on pb&j her freshman year but can't stand just peanut butter on her sandwiches, or how interesting frozen rolls are. I do not care about your peanut butter preferences, frozen rolls are not interesting. I just want to make this food so that I can go back to my mountain of reading.

I am doing everything but studying for my biology lab exam tomorrow.

I really need to study for my lab exam tomorrow.

This may be a problem.

Saved all my reading and the writing of my response essay for western world lit tomorrow until today, like any good brain-fried student who thinks it's mean to have a one-school-day week. It's not a make-up day or anything--spring break just starts on a Tuesday. Arrgh.

Also, our teacher is going to give us a take-home midterm. Arrgh squared.

Ah well. I am determined to have as much fun and relaxing as possible squeezed in around these atrocities.

4 applications down, 4 to go. Maybe only 3, since right now I'm kinda going back and forth on applying to ECU. For some reason I'm just not that enthused about it, even though back when I was picking colleges it went on the short list. I guess I'll go back through their website again--deadline is mid April, so I need to decide soon but not absolutely immediately.

Of the colleges I've applied to so far, I'm pretty sure that UNC Chapel Hill won't accept me, and that Meredith will. I'm pretty much ok with that--UNC-CH is my long shot. Guilford is actually the one I feel most confident about.

Unanticipated downside of online applications:
I can now go online every day and fret about how my transcripts have STILL not arrived. I honestly believe I checked on my UNC and UNCG applications as many times as I checked Facebook yesterday.

Next applications are NC State and Wake Forest. Once those are done I'll be more than halfway through my applications and oh god why did I decide to apply to EIGHT COLLEGES. I'm starting to feel like the paperwork will never end.

I did manage to get my residency paperwork filled out and sent the same day UNCG emailed me about it, at least, exercise in frustration that it was. (Where were you born? North Carolina. Where is your permanent residence? North Carolina. Where do you live now? North Carolina. How long have you lived in North Carolina? Very nearly 23 years, or MY WHOLE LIFE, as I like to call it.)

I just have to keep reminding myself that it will all be worth it. Eventually.
