I do so enjoy it when a black Republican accuses people of being racist.

Huh

Hack.

I'm a hack for pointing out that you're offended by what Scott said but don't seem bothered by what your own party's members and officials say and do constantly regarding stereotypes of black people?

Who says I'm not bothered? I'll comment on it when it is pertinent, I won't go into a tiffle about every gaffe or eruption that I come across.

Had my first day of classes. Still in PA but staying D-NH because I like the little niche I've carved out here.

So far everything is going right for me.

In November I'll vote for the Democratic State Senator from my area, Maria Sachs Tongue.

Anywho, it was very underwhelming. I walked in, the guy took five hours to find my ballot and than spent another five hours staring at my ID while the old lady from three houses down from me stood in line next to me to vote in the Democratic primary. I connected the arrows on the paper ballot, handed it to the lady, got a fancy little sticker, watched her put it into the machine, and went on my merry way.

You live in Florida, so I honestly don't know if you're using hyperbole or not. You guys really do suck at administering elections. If it were up to me we'd send in the UN to do it for you like we do to developing countries that have only had like a tenth of the time to assemble democratic institutions.

I'm not sure how much I've mentioned this, but my favorite modern band is Coheed And Cambria, who are about to embark on a tour in their Neverender series, in which they pick an album of theirs and play it in it's entirety (they do concept albums, so it makes sense).  Well, thanks to Stubhub and my old friend Bob (who has a car), I've procured myself a ticket to their performance on Sat. Sept. 6 in Los Angeles a the Wiltern Theater!  I've been so miserable out here, and finally I have something that I love to look forward to.

I just started my first day back at college today, my sophomore year. It was just your average, laid back day of teachers handing out the syllabuses. I'm taking Probability & Statistics I as a math based course, so presumably should I do well in this course, this might better help me understand the thinking of Nate Silver and all that stuff. The teacher is a pretty likeable and funny guy, and he's an odd contrast to my math professor two semesters ago. The current one loves using calculators, the past one hated them. I'm also taking Physical Geography just to completely bullcrap my way through the needed science credits. I'm terrible at science, but it looks like it will be just notes and group projects. The teacher for this class is a major klutz.

And then my other two classes technically don't start for two more weeks, which will be State & Local Gov. and Film Appreciation. I'm taking Film b/c I'm going to be transferring with an Associate of Arts and need a few classes from that general area. As for state and local gov., there's a Parma City Councilman who's going to teach this and with this being campaign season in Ohio, he'll likely have a paper or a project based off of it. I heard from a friend who had this guy before that he requires you to go to a City Council meeting and write a paper about it as one of things as well.

I haven't said this publicly yet, but the close friend I mentioned here in May has since moved away to Dayton to study at the university and work at the job corps center. I miss him, but I've already made 3 new friends at school and likely to have more once the LAMBDA group starts back up next week. I'll be volunteering at the club fair, so hopefully we can get more guys in the group this year! We need them. Sad

We used to just get drunk on the syllabus days, which was always the first Monday and Tuesday of the semester.  I'll tell you, a 4-day weekend group bender is a hell of a way to kick off a semester... for better (Fall 2008) or for worse (Fall 2009).

So every Monday I have been attending this bike ride event in Detroit called the Slow Roll. We ride for 10 miles around the city. It has got huge there were over 4000 people there on Monday. It is a slow ride basically a cruise. When I started going last year in July there were about 3-400 people attending and it got up to about 1500 by season end. It has to be one of the biggest weekly bike rides out there and it's awesome it happens in Detroit. This coming Monday is Labor Day so I think it will reach 5k which will be crazy I will have to leave early to find a parking spot.

.......That's definitely not the way I party lol.

The way LAMBDA is partying this semester is a beginning of the year, alcoholic-free party on Sept. 7th that I'm going to which will be fun. I have a wild side to me, but drinking/smoking isn't one of them for a variety of reasons. Sorry. Tongue

I'm bad at it.

I'm starting teachers college next week and there's a Facebook group of students who will be in the same program. They're all making plans to socialize and meet up and make friends.... and it's just like, ugh.
