Put It on Account...ing

I am finished with Accounting! Forever (in academic terms, at least)!

Huzzah!

My final was yesterday from 5pm-8pm. My sleep pattern prior to that had become...erratic, at best. Like, there was no rhyme or reason to it. Sometimes I would sleep from 9pm-1am, sometimes from 3pm-7pm, or any other off-kilter times. And I became quite hermetic. My door was always closed, mainly because I was an unsightly mess, eating a mix of Trader Joe's Salsa Verde (the best salsa in the world) and breath mints. Needless to say, I wasn't at my finest.

But who cares?! I'm finished with Accounting! The final itself, which I needed to do well on so as not to b0rk up my GPA, wasn't as bad as I was fearing. Still, I'm going to be no more than cautiously optimistic. But it's finished! FINISHED!

(As you may be able to tell, I didn't like Accounting. I think it's quite telling that I was no better than average in that class, while I was in the top 5% of both my marketing and consumer behavior classes.)

Oh, two more things!

I think I may have figured out what that insanity-inducing noise is. It's not coming from the walls themselves, but rather from the stairwell. I notice it has started only after someone has closed the door leading to the stairwell (which my room is directly next to), or when someone in the stairwell hit one of the metal handrails. Then it started. So, I think it has something to do with that.

Doesn't really make things better; the sound still drives me crazy, but at least I have some solace in knowing the source.

Second, I was watching the movie Amadeus the other day (I watch pieces of movies as I eat dinner, since I can't really do anything else during those 25 or so minutes). Thing was, though, I didn't realize that the thing was a two-disc movie. I only had one disc, and I thought that this scene was the ending:

Me: "........Huh."

And I thought No Country for Old Men had no closure in the ending. This didn't even have credits! Oh well, I thought, it's their movie, they can end it however they like. It took me a full day to realize that I still had an hour of movie left.

I immediately put it on my Netflix queue. Don't tell me how it ends!

Jerk: "Psst! Mozart dies!"

NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

Yes, Moazart dies and then in 1985, Falco revives him with the cheesy synth-pop song "Rock Me Amadeus."

And yes, I hate accounting. I hear the majority of accounting professors here at CSULB suck. When I tried my hand at it, I happen to take the worse of these professors.

As for you your noise problem, may I recommend earplugs?
