Kiss the ring!

Getting the most out of my tuition dollar

Bowling class is working. I got a buck fifty-six today (we started scoring). With the "low-tap" method of scoring (9 pins in the first frame is a strike), used due to the imprecision of our equipment, it would have been a 206. Tore my thumb open, though.

Also, music class.

In other news, I'm so bloody lonely. I've got this game thing on the weekends (mainly we play set/Uno/Chinese checkers/backgammon; not like D&D gaming, fewls) and I was just accepted into this comedy troupe on campus (composed primarily of ENGINERDS; we'll see how that goes). So like, real people maybe? Sometimes? We make the hanging out? Whatev. Online people are not doing it for me lately. I would have quit the Internet earlier this semester if I didn't need to download so much coursework from it. Stupid Internet.

Caring for Your Introvert. In case this slipped under your radar as it did mine.

I'll go so far as to highlight and quote salient passages:

"many actors, I've read, are introverts, and many introverts, when socializing, feel like actors"
"The only thing a true introvert dislikes more than talking about himself is repeating himself."
"I'm an introvert. You are a wonderful person and I like you. But now please shush."
"Second, when you see an introvert lost in thought, don't say 'What's the matter?' or 'Are you all right?' Third, don't say anything else, either." (or ask "Whatcha thinkin'?")

You can read the rest for yourselves.
