Six Weeks.

For six weeks I will probably not be writing any posts. I will be struggling through summer school session one. (Where I accidentally registered for three courses instead of two. I thought I registered to two course my first session and two for my second session, but no.)


SOC 410 is going to kill me.

I really hope the syllabus is just intimidating and once I get going it won't be a big deal.


Listening to Music = Studying.

I have two finals today. My finals today are in The History of Psychedelic Rock and the Sociology of Population and Its Problems. I don't really care about the SOC class. This class was completely dull and the professor wasn't very skilled at teaching. Knowledgeable woman, just couldn't teach her knowledge well. Anyway, I have a "C" in the class even if I don't take the final...taking it ensures my "B" or earns me an "A".

Save the Date

I am so excited to send out our save the dates! Our wonderful friend Crystal took our picture and I designed the save the dates using photoshop. We got them printed at a great online printer called Next Day Flyers. They were an excellent price and we got them just a week later. I will porobably spend today addressing them and maybe we can go pick out stamps. YAY!


i want the power.

today in class, my professor said something that stuck with me. she mentioned that she is going to do her best to not contribute to any corporation that cut labor costs (layoffs, frozen wages, wage cuts, benefit cuts, etc.) and gained a profit in the same year. i really liked this idea, but i'm having a difficult time finding which companies have cut labor costs. it was easy to find who made what profits in 2010, but it is next to impossible to see who cut labor costs. if anyone has any idea where i could find information about which companies cut labor costs in 2010 or this year, i would really appreciate it. unfortunately, this task seems much more difficult than it should be.

we're supposed to be consumers, then let's use that power.
