I went with Jim to the Magic: the Gathering
pre-release tournament. They hold one of these whenever a new set comes out to give the biggest geeks the first crack at the new cards and a chance to play them against each other for even more cards. Great marketing strategy. The only reason I tagged along is because I needed to do some studying.
Let me explain. Between this
and the cats and my secret endeavour there were just too many distractions at home for me to possibly get any studying done. Not to mention that this place is once again in need of housekeeping which would mean that I couldn't take study breaks in good conscience because I would feel obligated to clean up. Initially Jim asked where I thought I would be able to find a place to study amidst the frenzy that is pre-release tournaments. I said "the girls' bathroom..." hee hee hee. Seriously though, I holed myself up at the nearest Subway
and did what I needed to do to make sure that I'm on track for my mid-term on Wednesday. Then I watched Jim play the draft tournament (if you want this explained, write me) which he won. He's won his last four draft tournaments now, this guy is getting good. I'm very impressed.
I've decided that I will not go for the job that I'm offered at Abstract Promotions. I am going to call them and tell them that I'm not even going to keep my Tuesday appointment. I think about it this way. They want me to put in 10 hour days dedicated to selling Sprint's services. If I dedicated even six hours of my Mon-Fri I would be able to earn a car with Mary Kay in about 3-4 months. Might as well do Mary Kay seeing as how I've already signed on to the company and have make-up lying in boxes in my bedroom waiting to be sold. I was going to wait until after Linguistics 200 wrapped up before I started, but there's no time like the present. Plus, I like Liz (my MK director) alot more than the people I met at Abstract Promotions. See my previous post re: why Abstract Promotions left me with an unsettled feeling.
is starting. They play it every night at 9:30pm and I'm seeing the coolest episodes. There's more to say but it will have to wait.
