I've realized that certain aspects of weather really, really piss me off.

Particularly, I find it incredibly displeasing when weather is acting fickle, or trying to be two things at the same time. Why does it have to be windy and cold when the sun's out in mid-April? It's mid-April, not fucking November. If it's going to appear sunny and warm, why can't weather actually be sunny and warm? And the other way works as well: when it's cloudy and windy, why not be cold? I mean, for God's sake, it looks cold. I'm living on the 4th floor, so going outside with a heavy jacket on and then realizing that it's really quite stifling, and then climbing back up 4 flights of stairs to change my jacket is really a monstrously harrowing experience.

Today, for example, it looks nice out. I want to be able to wear capris and a thin top. I really, really do. But some asshole up near the clouds decided that wind wasn't a terrible idea, except, no, for us minion humans down here who have to walk across college campuses for 4 straight classes, it really isn't such a great idea. In fact, it's a cruel and tactless idea. The weather is a duplicitous little man who has nothing better to do with his time than to fool all of us into thinking that it's warm outside, when really, it's like we're in a goddamn arctic circle.


Except, okay, I'm really not as volatile as you may think. I'm a little bit irked. But not too much.

Well, maybe a bit.

Oh no, that's just his arms, if you wanna know if he loves you so, it's in his kiss (that's where it is)...

So, limewire decided to stop being a fucktard and actually start downloading my shit, so I've been downloading songs that have been in my head for the past week or two...songs that included are Cher's version of It's In His Kiss, formally known as the Shoop Shoop Song (? I'm seriously not kidding), and that one by Rihanna...you know, the one about rain and that rhymes with jumbrella...

I'm back at Vassar, and have just had my first class in, oh, a little bit more than two weeks. I've realized that my classes end at May 6th, which is so much earlier than I thought they would end, so basically, 6 weeks of class left! I'm really excited. So basically, my schedule of major events during the rest of this year is:

- May 6th: Classes end
- May 9th: My Chemical Romance concert, what what
- May 19th: End of exams
- May 25th: Cousin's wedding that I must attend, and expect some sort of new development in family drama
- Sometime at the end of May: Go back to Seoul for a few days - a week
- Sometime early June: Go back to Saudi Arabia
- For the rest of the month of June/beginning of July: travel around Greece, Turkey, Kuwait, possibly Bahrain
- Rest of summer until the end of August/beginning of September: VASSARRR

So basically you all have a nice little schedule of my life until September, yay you!


The weather's finally getting really nice and sunny, and we all know what that means: the invasion of prospies! If you didn't know what a prospie was, it's basically short for a 'prospective students'. As college decisions come out in, oh, a week or so, a ton of parents and high school seniors have invaded the campus, as well as some of my classes. Today a girl with no obvious sense of style (wearing a striped, black and white shirt, a black vest over that, a flowy skirt with red flowers over it, jeans underneath that, and black converses) came into my class, saying "Hi! I'm ______, I'm a senior from high school, and I'm so glad to be able to join your class today!", thinking that if she were nice to the college freshmen or my professor, she'll get into Vassar, or something.

I looked over at the girl next to me (named Lauren Bell) and she shared my feeling of disgust. As we left the classroom today, the girl went over to our professor to thank her for the "wonderful class" and the girl that was sitting next to me just goes, "I think I just threw up in my mouth, a little."

Oh, Lauren Bell, how you make me laugh.


So I've reverted back to my obsession with tic tacs (IT'S ALL LINH'S FAULT, SHE STARTED THE TOPIC WAY BACK IN ONE OF HER LJ POSTS), and have bought two Wintergreen tic tac boxes. I opened one absent-mindedly and now I can't tell which one that I opened...I don't want to open two at the same time, that's just bad taste, but the damned perforations are basically non-existent...maybe I'll open this one....

Greetings from Northwestern!

It really has been awesome being at Northwestern + Sara (good GOD it's been so long since we've last been together). Meeting her friends has actually been really cool; all of them are really nice and seem to be really great people. One of her friends, Kate, actually told me:

"Sam, why don't you come and visit us more often? I've only known you for 3ish hours and already I really like you!"

...Yeah that does sound creepy if you don't actually hear her say it, but, hey, it's a nice little ego boost. I mean, it really goes without saying that you'll like me upon meeting me, but, whatever, what's wrong with a little praise sometimes?

BUT YES so I've basically toured Northwestern, and am meeting up with Josh, my cousin who goes to Northwestern, tomorrow. He's the really perfect one that I kind of resent because of that fact, and he writes sickeningly emotional entries in his MySpace blog about how being in so-and-so play (he's a drama dude) changed his life, or something similar. It's really kind of obnoxious. This is the cousin who told me that, when he auditioned to be Marius in his high school production of Les Mis (which he got), people watching his audition actually cried.


OH YES! I watched Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day, and I really really liked it. It was so cute.

Oh, and:


Oh, and why isn't there going to be new episodes of Pushing Daisies in the near future? This is depressing me.

Tomorrow I go into Chicago tomorrow! Yay!

Maxed out credit cards, here we come!

I'm pleasantly surprised to discover that there actually is a song that incorporates my name in it. And not only this, it's called 'Lady Samantha'. BY ELTON JOHN.

How freakishly awesome?!


When the shrill winds are screaming
And the evening is still
Lady Samantha glides over the hill
In a long satin dress that she wears every day
Her home is the hillside, her bed is the grave

Lady Samantha glides like a tiger
Over the hills with no one beside her
No one comes near
They all live in fear
But Lady Samantha, she sheds only tears

The tales that I told round the fire every night
Are out of proportion and none of them right
She is harmless and empty of anything bad
For she once had something that most of you have
