Politically Incorrect!

I just heard on the radio yesterday that using 'couch potato' would be politically incorrect!
Now, by hearing this, the only thing I could think of was what the hell is the world turning into?

Apparently, what happened was that the British farmer's believe that the word 'couch potato' is harming the image of potatoes. And they want the word to be struck from the Oxford English Dictionary.

Now what image could a potato have.
I mean seriously!!!!

Don't they have better things to do? - like SELLING them!
I mean how could a word damage an image of a potato?
I can't think of anyway of doing it.
And believe me I LOVE potatoes!!!
Even though I use the word 'couch potato'.

If you're interested in the story you can look it up in BBC news.
or just click on the title it's linked.

This is absurd!

So Finals are over and I'm free as a bird!!

Well, it does feel weird though.
So now I need to take care of some things that I've been pushing aside since god-knows-when.

First, I have to re-organize my room.
then, re-organize my bookshelves.
Box some of the things that I've been meaning to put away for ages and throw some out while I'm at it.
And then straighten out my schedule, and meet people I've haven't met for ages.
Organize the pictures that me and my sister took in Europe A YEAR AGO!!!
and get them developed.
Write to people and let them know I'm still alive and doing good.
And try to figure out what I'm going to do with the rest of my life... ;) (just kidding!)
So this is what I have to do before we enter July.
Hopefully I'll manage to do most of them if not all.

The End and a New Beginning

So, I'm nearing the end of getting my B.A., finally.
After this week and next. I'm all done.

Graduation exam were okay. I didn't fail or anything.
And I almost forgot about it after taking it in May.
Just got the results last week. It's an 'A' so that's that.
No more worries.
The only thing left now are finals.
Good thing that I'm only taking a few classes.
So, four exams to go and I'm free as a bird. (NOT!)
But it's always good to know it's another end of something and then a new beginning of another is waiting around the corner.

Thinking it's my last time I'll be coming here makes me want to cry but,
I can always visit right?
Thinking back, I really had a great time here.

Right now I have no idea what my new beginning might be, but that's the fun of it, don't you think?
I'm just going to take it slow and easy.
It never did me good to rush things.
So, this time I'm just going to take things on my schedule and time.
I don't want to be pressured by anything.

Well, I should get back to my studies.
