"I don't give a fuck, not a single fuck, not a single solitary fuck..."

Friday night is quickly becoming de facto night for crazy and quasi-legal adventures. I'm also discovering a few things too.

For example, last night, I went to a free Pepper concert that they were having at the school. The band was definitely good, but the scene was something like this: There was a tiny stage and about three or four people were in what you would call the mosh pit area, and they were totally rocking out. Those kids definitely knew how to rock. Then spaced out along the lawn area (it was an outdoor concert) were about 50-75 people who were just standing around, with their arms crossed, looking like they would rather be studying for a midterm or something.

Those people definitely didn't know how to rock.

And this is why UCSD has a reputation for sucking. The student body simple doesn't know how to rock. How conservative the campus is turning out to be is also starting to rub on me a little bit too. When I first came here, it was refreshing, but now it's not so much. You know what the problem is? I think we need more Rastas. Stores and businesses close around here too early also.

Before we can get more Rastas (maybe import some from Florida or Venice Beach?), I guess I'll just have to find my own adventure.

Fire at the beach
You ever get the feeling like you need to go burn something? You know, really set something on fire? And don't you just sometimes feel like those "legal" and "safe" firepits they have at the beach are just too conformist? It's like "hey look at me! I'm roasting weenies in this legal firepit that the government has provided for me at the beach. they've clearly defined my boundries and i totally agree with them!"

Cool. Yeah me too.

Somehow my weekend plans went a little awrye, but you know, "even the best layed plans of mice of men...." No worries though, I just did the best thing to do when things go awyre: go to the beach, drink a little alcohol and burn whatever wood or paper you were planning on recycling. Oh yeah, and do it all in the pouring rain with two good friends for added affect.

When we arrived at the beach, it was indeed pouring, and we were worried that we wouldn't be able to get a fire started, but we were somehow able to take over an abandoned fire that someone had just started and left : ), and away from the "legal" firepits.

That's not entirely orange juice.

Yes, Sam and Steve are clearly enjoying themselves.

Burn baby, burn.

You see that big smile on my face? Yeah it's cold and it's raining and I'm soaked in water. That's how much I love fire.

Things went well. I'm pretty sure I've knocked about 2 years off my life from breathing in the voluminous quantities of smoke from our essentially all paper fire. If the cops hadn't showed up, it would have probably been more like 4 years, but we had to douse the fire and bounce before our "non-conformist" (not to be confused with communist) activities were discovered.

Happy V-Day!
Somehow I missed taking a critical class last quarter (that I couldn't even sign up for) that's only offered once a year that I need to take most of my other classes. At first I was a little pissed. Wait, no. I was really pissed, but after a few minutes, I just stopped caring. That one class I missed has pretty much added another year before I can graduate : ). The counselor I spoke to yesterday suggested that I minor in some other area while I'm waiting to take that class. That could be fun.

Also, I'm feeling a bit restless about school in general. I keep thinking that I need a break so I can go and do something crazy, fun and illegal so I'll be ready to start taking school seriously again. But I think I was just on break doing some crazy and fun stuff. Hell, I think I'm on break now, because my Organic Chemistry grade is crashing into the ground. Maybe I'm just starting to really dislike school.

Anyway, Valentine's Day is one of my favorite Holidays, even though I'm currently a bachelor. There's just something good about a holiday devoted to love. Plus here at the school, they hand out free condoms and other stuff and the QPOC (Queer People of Color) has its annual Kiss-off which is good for entertainment.

Oh and by the way, Happy Valentine's Day!
