Today presented me with an odd opportunity. I actually had nothing pressing to do so was able to come home for a nice, mid-day break! Oh, what a glorious day it is turning out to be! There’s no damned way I’m going to start studying for exams before tomorrow, so the world is my oyster! Relaxation, naps, internets; oh, the things I could do with a 4 hour block of afternoon free time…
Turns out that today is the day Campus Housing decided to start doing major renovations to the landscaping of my community, however. So I get home and there are bulldozers and backhoes all up in my backyard just tearing shit apart like a 2-year-old on a temper tantrum. Do you have any idea how hard it is to concentrate on internet porn when there are walls literally crashing down just outside your window?
Oh well, I take comfort in the thought that all this weekend and next week – while I’m cramming my arse off trying to learn all of the math and physics knowledge that I just sort of shited off during the quarter in favor of watching the new Doctor Who or BSG episodes – the construction will be not only ongoing, but at its peak! Yessir! Two whole weeks worth of noisy, invasive construction and centered right on finals. I’ve never been so happy.
