Well, I can't think of any place in the world where having a car is not a good way to pick up women, MAYBE in Cuba, or in places where there are no cars.

I don't think driving is such a big deal in the UK because things are closer together and more reasonable walking distances, most Towns can be walked across in an hour or so, except London which is horrible to drive in and has the underground anyway.

It's days like these which make me believe in fate.

Only a few hours ago, I took a rather nasty fall. I won't get into details, except to say that I was in my usual theater, I had forgotten how slippery the floors are, and my shoes had been way overdue for replacement.

The collateral damage is a nasty cut on my chin that will probably leave a scar. Far worse is the terrible pain in my left hip. There's no visible bruising and it's obvious that nothing's broken, but something in there got torn up good. My hip is so swollen that I can barely move it, much less walk.

So why do I mention fate? Well, just yesterday, I marched in the Starlight Parade, which is the single biggest Portland-based event for my drumline. Tomorrow, I'm set to take a practical exam for my class. The day after that, I was scheduled to interview for an internship. All of that will have to be postponed or cancelled, and God forbid I put a drum on within the next few weeks.

Only two weeks from now, I was going to take my first summer away from classes since I graduated from Pacific three years ago. But fate seemed to think I needed a break right fucking now. Thinking about it, I really do.

That sucks, but you probably do deserve a break.

Also, noticed this.

My dad said the same thing, funnily enough. The placement isn't quite as attractive, though. More than anything, I wish I had a better story for it than "I slipped."

So I just discovered that I can walk without a stick. Two days into a week-long recovery, that ain't bad.

You should keep using it anyway and whenever someone asks you what happened you just say "Bane."

I'm trying to think of what a Portland superhero would be like. I'm quite sure he'd be the shittiest superhero ever.

Academic troubles n' shit................sorta.

For a "National Reality" class, we had to buy this book, we didn't need it really, but our bitch of a teacher insisted and asked us to pay 130 Peruvian Soles (50 dollars) for it.

Now, I don't know how american college works, but out here, it's outrageous to pay that amount for a book when your university has entire libraries full to the brim with books of the same topics, where photocopying and page-scanning is an essential part of academic life, the college experience HAS to be as economically sound as possible.

So, a few months ago, when this issue arised (because nobody wanted to pay 50 dollars each for a stupid "recommended material" book) I stepped up and said I could coordinate a gathering to get money to buy one book, which I could later photocopy and then scan the necessary pages as the teacher dictated.

Turns out, when pay-day came, half of the people who had to pay showed up, and I had to shell out money from my own pocket to pay for it, later, I found out other people were asking for the copies of others who payed for their right to have these copies, which the latter gladly gave away.

All in all, I decided to keep the book for myself, since I paid more and some people clearly had ripped me off.

However, before the semester is about to end, one chick asked me if I was going to organize a "lottery" to give the book to someone, I politely wrote an e-mail to everyone in the class room that I was intent in keeping the book to myself, since I paid more, and some people took advantage of the situation, in the same e-mail, I explained that next class we could talk about the issue if they so wanted to.

Did I do the right thing ? Should I give the book to lottery ? Should I donate to the university ? Should I keep it to myself ?

Any insight into this issue would be greatly appreciated.

here in america, college books can easily cost twice as much.

not only that, but professors will write books themselves, designate them as "needed" for the class, then never actually use them, and basically everything you learn in the class was already in that book, they just wanted extra money.


also, if you paid for more than half of it, i would say either keep it or donate it to the school library.

In all fairness I didn't paid for more than half of it, we had gathered 100 Peruvian Soles and we needed 130, I put in the last 30, I still feel like I should keep it for myself, at most I will donate it.

So some of your classmates did help in paying for it?

I don't really have any advice, although I'll tell you that book will probably be useless in a year. Donate it to the library if you want, but a new book will be recommended the following year.
