Last Day in the Dorms

So it comes down to this. I have to be out of my room by about 3:30 PM today. It's really sad. I wish that it all lasted so much longer, it feels like it came by too quickly. Anyway, that's what's pressing my immediate time.

As far as the book, I found that there was a lot I could draw from it, but I had some difficulty placing myself under only one of the five catagories. The five different love languages are Words of Affirmation, Acts of Service, Quality Time, Receiving Gifts, and Physical Touch. Out of the five, I can pretty much identify with four of them; Words of Affirmation, Acts of Service, Quality Time, and Physical Touch. I try to use all but Physical Touch as a means of expressing myself. I only refrain from Physical Touch because I'm unsure of the boundaries of others and I'd rather err on the side of caution than overstep their comfort level.

I suppose I also have to remind myself that the book was written for married couples, but I think that it has absolutely practical application within the structure of friendships, as well. I only hope that I'm able to process the concepts in such a way that I have the opportunity to find out.

Also, I went and saw Kill Bill vol. 2 last night. I was surprised at the fact that it was actually fairly quality film making. It was made very much like a Hong Kong movie, but the writing was pretty good. Now I'm a little more interested in seeing the first film.

Anyway, back to packing.

There is a lot in the book that can be translated into other relationships than the married one.

Also, I'd be surprised if anyone found that they fit neatly into one category. Almost everyone that I've talked to found that they identified with at least two or three, but usually, upon observation, there's one that is the strongest language.

For example, if you hear that someone is having a crummy day, what is the absolute first solution that would pop into your head? You might come up with three or four different ways to respond, but the very first one is probably your strongest language.

last day?

Why do you have to leave the dorms today? Are they doing something with the dorms, or is it the end of the quarter/semester/year? (Sorry, don't know the background of all this. If you have a link to an entry about it, hook me up.)

Last day

I don't understand why you are so sad that it's the last day in the dorms. Every time you've talked about it you've said how much you hate everything about it. It seems that you don't want to be there. You also mentioned one day that it is not so much a want to live in the dorms as a necessity. Bull. You have a mother and brother making the commute every day to the same place and your brother has the same classes. You really could live at home and be much happier. That way you wouldn't have to be so selfish as to ruin everyone's lives in the dorms by making them be quiet. Just think...no more telling Nicholas and Nate to be quiet at night when they are just having a nice civil conversation in thier room, no more telling Jim to turn down his TV, no more forcing Brad to shut off his music, no more telling Jeremy to quit playing guitar, no more dribbling in the hall by the basketball guys, and finally no more pissing off andy and brent by giving them phone calls at all hours of the night telling them how to do their jobs that they are very capable of doing.
I think you should either move home or get a pair of earplugs and just deal. If you do have a real problem with someone's noise level, ask them nicely. Here's an example: When Cameron Byrd wants to sleep and a particular room is being noisey, he doesn't barge into the room and tell them to shut up. He calmly comes in and asks them if it's alright for him to shut their door. They then reply with "oh yeah, sorry, we didn't realize we were being so loud. We'll try to keep it down a bit." Then cam responds with a "thanks a ton guys. I realy appreciate it."
However, you call people and say shut up or walk into their room and tell them to move their conversation elsewhere. I even know of a time when you walked in on a very important conversation right after someone's grandmother who they were very close to had died and told them to pipe down. you wonder why you didn't get PA? It's because you are a real dick. Deal with it and try to have an easier year next year.
Don't be selfish and expect to get your own room next year. There are fifty other guys in the dorms who would like a room of their own just as much as you would. So I'd just learn to live with a person and compromise when there's disagreements.
Also, lighten up a little. You are too much of a homophobe. I saw you when the guys dressed up as cheerleaders for the game. You wouldn't go near them. They were just trying to have a little school spirit and get the crowd juiced up for the game. Are you overcompensating for something? Like it was said earlier, maybe you should find a husband.
My final thoughts regarding you loosening up. Maybe you should kiss that dating policy goodbye. I think a girl in your life would work wonders. Everyone could see that you had a hardon for liisa the whole first semester and most of second. You should have acted upon that. If you don't get a girlfriend, at least try to beat off a little more often so you don't get so sexually frustrated. Hell, maybe it's just time to get laid! Can you say 82nd street prostitute?
