In a little while, I’ll be gone by Sam M. '07

This is not a blog entry. I'm not here, this isn't happening.

DID YOU KNOW? The late Strom Thurmond filibustered the Civil Rights Act of 1957 by speaking in from of the Senate for 24 hours and 18 minutes consecutively. The bill came up for vote andpassed immediately afterwards.

…and honestly, that while is just a bit too little. Anyway, after three days of finals I packed my entire life into about twelve boxes and moved back to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. I’m here for three days trying to get my bearings, shop for travel-appropriate items, and see every single person that I ever knew in high school. On Monday I’m headed for the airport in Philadelphia, and from there I’ll be in the aeroplane over the sea bound for GERMANY!!

I’ll be blogging again soon. Probably from GERMANY!!

To entertain you, though, here are a few random finals quotes that I can recall:

“Do you remember 8.02? The night before the test we were studying and Justin looked right at me and said, ‘What’s Gauss’s Law?'”

“I totally didn’t study for this exam… I’ve only been looking at the material for about four hours.”
“I KNOW! I fell asleep at 12 and didn’t wake up until 5! I’m such a slacker!”

“Did you finish [the 10.37 exam]?”
“No… but I feel like I could have… if I were smart.”
“Good answer.”
“Well, that’s more than I can say about 10.32.”

Can you believe that they got Wolfgang Puck, Toni Braxton, and Prince on the American Idol finale?
