going nowhere

I've been listening to Norah Jones a lot recently. I've also been in a really mellow state of mind these past few days. I'm sure one of them caused the other, but I don't really care. I feel like everything around me has become a minefield and I'm tiptoe-ing through my daily life, afraid of setting off a looming chain reaction of chaos. Where is this sprouting from? I have no idea. But then, I have no idea about a lot of things recently, so I guess that's nothing new.

But yeah - back to Norah Jones. She makes amazing music and has a magnificent voice and listening to her makes putting off studying a little more enjoyable. At the moment, my fave song of hers is 'Carnival Town.' Listen to it sometime. Ok, off to do physics.

Carnival Town
Norah Jones

Round 'n' round
Has got you under it's spell
Moving so fast... but
Going nowhere

Up 'n' down
Ferris wheel
Tell me how does it feel
To be so high...
Looking down here

Is it lonely?

Did the clown
Make you smile
He was only your fool for a while
Now he's gone back home
And left you wandering there

Is it lonely?

fastpassing through life

This semester is going by really fast. Somehow time is flying - both when I'm having fun and when I'm not having so much fun.

Life since last entry has included:

>days blurring together in the pattern that has become this semester;
>dropping Calc II and deciding to take it over the summer;
>every college student's oasis in the middle of an arid spring semester in the form of spring break coming and going, and over the course of it I went home, came back to UCF, went to Tampa for two days, came back to UCF, attended the FIRST Robotics Florida Regional (and helped my team earn another regional win, as well as the GM Industrial Design Award), and became single again.

It is now hitting me that we have about 4 weeks left in the semester and then I will have finished year 1 of college. Weird... >.> In the words of someone wise I know -and the song 'Wish You Were Here' by Incubus, life is basically one big roller coaster and it seems that this fact has been thrown into sharper focus recently. Lalala, whatever - life goes on, right?

Ok, back to life in the fastpass lane...
