That's how many days are left until the seasons is upon us. Pretty crazy, right? If August completely flying by is any indication, the season is going to be here before we know it. The excitement of hockey season is always so much fun and I'm a little lame because I keep a countdown of the days on my phone...just like a kid who counts the days down until Christmas. Don't judge's always good to have something to look forward to, right?

Continuing on with the 30 trend...I spotted #30 out and about today. He was walking with a very lovely stride, he must have been having a nice conversation with someone on his phone just realized that the season starts in just 30 days!!!

With hockey on my mind, I went back to take a look at the schedule, and I looked at which games I am most excited about this season. It's always exciting to see teams from the Western Conference because we don't usually see them that much. Detroit, Calgary, and Chicago will be fun games to attend. I like going to Caps games too, because they are a fun team. I also want to make it out to a Lightning game this year now that Drew Miller is with the get a chance to see the two Millers play against each other. I like it when siblings play against each other. It's so rare to make the NHL, and it's pretty special when two (or multiple, if you're a Staal) siblings are up in the big leagues.

So I'm almost through with my first week back to school and I can already tell it's going to be pretty hectic...but such is the life of a college student, right? I just have long days every day (excluding Fridays), and I also have to balance out my job. Yesterday I had to be on campus for class by 9 in the morning and then I had to leave straight for work after my last class of the day and I didn't get out of work until around 11:30 pm (which was early). I guess caffeine and I will get to know each other a lot more this semester. I'm not much of a coffee drinker, but yesterday on my way to work I got a nice soy latte from Spot Coffee and it seemed to do the trick. The good thing is that I am planning on working only one shift on weekdays, so crazy days like that will only be about once a week.

I'm also glad to say that I got into the classes that I couldn't register for over the summer because they were full. Thanks to people dropping the courses and overrides from one of my professors. The pro to that is obviously I get to take the courses I need to take... The con is that I guess it means that I really do have to go out and buy those $130+ books. Awesome. I really want to meet the people who sit there and make the prices for textbooks. I also would want to know what Buff State does with the money the get from parking permits. I just find it a little laughable that Buff State has the audacity to charge us $70 a year to park when the parking availability is beyond terrible. The parking has been especially awful so far this year...everyone I talk to has said that they have never seen it this bad before. It's also going to be fun when they get rid of one of the campus's biggest parking lot because they will be building dorms there. Buff State is just overcrowded in general. And today the vending machine took $2.75 of my money because all the waters were sold out and it wouldn't give me my money back...geesh, that school just sucks money from me left and right.

Now that I'm done ranting about Buff State being a money grabbing WHORE, I would like to show you guys the trailer of an upcoming movie called The Lovely Bones. I don't know if any of you have read the book, but it's one of my favorite books. I'm very excited about the movie. It looks great and very well done. Almost everything from the trailer is exactly how I pictured the scenes in my head while reading the book. Here's the trailer.

I friggin hate when college takes your money! I think we pay $70 for parking too. Ridiculous I say!

Yeah...I can't believe how much college costs sometimes.

my roommate goes to Buff State, and there isn't one day that she doesn't come home mad about something...I'm glad I switched out before I actually went there.

And that movie looks sooooo good! I love Marky Mark :)

Well, despite the fact that Buff State's parking is atrocious, and college in general just likes to take your money, I'm enjoying myself at Buff State for the most part. For what I'm going to school for (photography at the moment), it's a real nice fit for me because they have a great fine arts department and I like the location of the campus. Although I have been considering changing majors, but that's neither here nor there...
