So I'm biking to my UWP class in Wellman (coming from the dorms after a glorious nap) and I approach the spot where you turn to go behind Wellman. Then follows this sequence of events:
1. I stick my left arm out to show the one biker coming toward me that I'm about to turn.
2. A bike cop who came out of NOWHERE was suddenly riding alongside me and asked, "So what are you about to do here?"
3. I keep my left arm out and instead of turning right away, I get to the crosswalk part and make a sharp left after the V of bumps. Mind you, I was unaware that this was the proper way to turn because EVERYONE turns before the V of bumps.
4. The cop expresses approval and says, "You're the first person I've seen to do that correctly!"
5. He hands me an envelope containing a $7 gift certificate to on-campus food places!
I think the best part of it was that I was definitely about to go the illegal way and then somehow made the right decision when the cop spoke to me.

I learned this from my Sports Psychology textbook today: "Thus, to be heterosexual is to be sexually attracted to members of the opposite sex, while to be homosexual is to be sexually attracted to members of the same sex."
That's amazing. Thank you college! I never knew...

Last night, Jason and I were watching 'Man vs Food', and it happened to be the episode where the man has to eat a 12 pound burger and fries. It looked so delicious! I had just got home from work and was starving, and watching that show makes Jason and I hungry even if we just ate, so we proceeded to do the only thing we could do- drive to In-N-Out and purchase a couple of 4x4's and fries. The burger was amazing, the fries were plentiful, and, it wasn't even very difficult to finish. Yum yum yum yum

Today as I was driving home from picking up some fast food, an impatient driver decides that the speed limit is too slow and decides to blow past me. I didn't think much of it except in a few seconds I start to catch up with him again. I soon find that I'm going slower than I was before. Of course as I look closely I see a bright blue screen up by this guys face.

My day got off to a good start; after the teacher in my first class introduced himself as the teacher for biochem, the first words I hear from some girl behind me are, "Uh-oh, I'm gonna go outside and figure out where my class actually is." I was in Chem 194 which is a pretty unmistakable building so I'm not sure where she got mixed up. You know what she must have been looking for the other Chem 194 building... Anyways it made my day further to see that there was about thirty people or so sitting around in the shade watching the bike circles hoping to see some freshman crash on their bikes. I didn't have time to sit and watch myself but I'm sure they weren't disappointed. Heck it's the reason that football players aren't allowed to bike during the first week of class.
First day of class, here we go. My Bio professor looks like Dr. Hammond from Jurassic Park, but sounds like Rex from Toy Story. On the bus ride home a gay couple sat next to me snuggling and holding hands, and when I got off the bus I saw a midget walking a dog that was bigger than they were. BINGO! I win. Welcome back to college.

Yesterday, Kyle, Jason, and I finished the world's largest corn maze in the world! Besides the fact that it was pretty muddy and destroyed our shoes, it was really fun. Maybe it was the heat, or the fact that we were in the maze for nearly two hours, but the maze transforms you into a different person (if you know what I mean). Even with a map it wasn't all that easy to know where you're going. We tried to go as far as we could without the map and we ended back at the beginning three times. You think you have a good sense of direction, but you can toss that right out the window when all the walls and paths look the same.

So apparently it was 'spill night' the other day when some of us were hanging out watching a movie. First off, HP6 didn't work in the dvd player, so that was some bad karma. Then, at separate times throughout the night, 4 of us found a way to spill a beverage near us. David spilled his water, then later spilled his Dr. Pepper. Asha spilled a drink and I knocked over Jason's water at the end of the movie. Way to go, guys. Luckily, not much harm was afflicted on the carpet.

Well it's been a few weeks since I've been able to see this place. My computer broke and had to get a new one so I have been left out of out of the loop of this blog thing. Don't worry I read all the stories and comments so now I feel part of the group again. Other than that not much has happened. We've moved in and got internet up and running (like 5 minutes ago), but it's good to be back in Davis again.
From this point forward, basically all of my posts are going to be about being an RA. Woo hoo! Haha just now as I was typing that, some drunk guys walked past my building and the sliding door to my balcony was open so I could hear them loud and clear. I was fully prepared to yell, "HEY, don't touch my (fucking) car!" if they got anywhere near it.. especially after that dent I found from some stupid kid climbing on it last year. Drunks. Sheesh. Anyway, training is just peachy! I'm also getting reacquainted with DC food.. not sure whether that's a good or bad thing. Now I need to go practice for my CD meetings. Yay acronyms!

So I saw a cop driving today and TALKING ON HIS CELL PHONE! I'm sorry sir, but that is a moving violation and a $500 ticket. Better luck next time. Oh wait, apparently that only applies to us civilians. I forgot the po-po are above the law and can run red lights, do cocaine and smoke all the marijuana they confiscate. Maybe I should be a policeman.
