Big Man On Campus

Here we are, it's a Wednesday and I am in my second day of classes here at South University and may I say so far, so good. Nothing's blown up yet and I haven't been kicked out. Honestly, I am very glad to return to college as I was getting bored at home and can't just sit there and watch infomercials all day. Speaking of which, is Vince the Shamwow guy a douche or what? Now he's selling Slap Chop or Chop Slap or Slap Nuts or whatever it's called. He looks more like a Ricky than he does a Vince to me. "You are gonna love my nuts!" Let me go back to what I was talking about though, because we really don't have all day...


Now that I'm back, I'm taking two courses this round: Compositition III and Torts and Remedies. They both seem to be very simple classes, but if I know the drill I'll get over my head in work and wind up doing my best to not screw up. When I started down the road to being a Paralegal, I knew that it would be some work. In hindsight however, I didn't think the road would be so full of pot holes. It dawned on me that if it wasn't for dialysis, I would have graduated last month if I had don't a full time schedule and gone to classes four days a week and alternating days. This is my albatros to wear like the Mariner, yet I keep on keepin' on. Other than the transplant (which I pray happens this year if I can drop more weight) I got nothing else to do and nowhere else to go, so I may as well keep myself busy. Hey, if it doesn't work out at all, I can sell crap on television like ol' Vince up there. I wonder if being a douchebag makes lots of money?

The thing that really gets me about the Slap-Chop is that he treats it like its some new invention. I swear my mother had a chopper just like that thing when I was a kid. And no one had to show her his nuts to convince her to buy it either. Er...

I have one of these things! I got it from Pampered Chef several YEARS ago, but I think you can get it in Target now. I don't recall what it's named, but it works and looks the absolute same!
