Get the jumbo slices at Pizza Boli's, not that other gross place.

YUM - Pizza Boli's jumbo slice with pepperoni and sausage.  Take that with 2 advil and a bottle of water and poof....hangover is gone!!! Plus, it is so big, that you will pass out before you can eat the whole thing.  So it also doubles as lunch the next day! ;)

Oh NO Cali!!!  What happened!?!?!??!  What section are you in?  I had a really nice day, class was cool -- PM me if you don't want to put your business in the street.

It has really turned out to be a nice evening.  I am chilling on my balcony doing my homework.  I LOVE wireless internet!!!

Question -- those of you that ordered Dells, did you get a back-up CD of Windows XP?  I received the blue CD card that says it is the "system restore" instructions.  My friend that ordered a Dell a week earlier than me received actual back-up CDs.  I would prefer to have them in case of any problems.

Yes -- boxing took forever.  I was obsessively checking the status all day long!!  It was funny..... :D :D :D :D

It was weird though....I took longer for me to receive the printer than the computer.

PS -- I am completely head over heels in love with this computer!! :-*

I would never let my experience at Orientation or the Open House change my opinion of the law school as a whole.  I am confident that I will get an excellent legal education and will enjoy my experience (although I am already dreading the amount of work that I am going to have to do!! :o)  I am just not used to this bcuz my undergrad/grad school was SOOOOO organized and there is no excuse that Howard, and all black colleges/universities for that matter, is not run efficiently.

My bf was telling me that people have tried to make changes, but the changes are met with so much resistance that nothing is really ever implemented.  Plus, University jobs are like guh'ment have to basically kill somebody on the job to get fired.  So you get people working there that are comfortable, have attitude problems, refuse to learn anything new and are complacent in their jobs and there are no consequences.  The cycle continues.....

I did have a very good experience at the Health Center today.  I am definitely keeping a positive attitude....that is the only way to deal with things like this.....

Oh -- I was just informed that being dragged through the dirt by Howard administration is a "character building experience".  Puhleeze -- spare me!!!!

My group leader said shirt and tie is the minimum for men.  I am just going to wear a dress considering that this ceremony is OUTSIDE (who schedules ANYTHING outside in August in DC?!?!?!?).  It's okay though -- I am just going to make sure that I have some ice-water and some cold washcloths for my old parents!!!

Seriously -- I am going to stop complaining about Howard. I am looking forward to my studies there....but today was truly off the HOOK!!!!!

Just do something business casual.  It is a pretty important ceremony.  As always, it is better to be overdreesed than underdressed.

What Section are you in?

U won't have a break from 1-5.  You will be spending your day at the main campus to get a Student ID -- and believe me -- It is going to take ALL DAY!!!  My friends that went to Howard, Hampton and Morgan were laughing at me bcuz I was so outraged by the foolishness that I experienced today!!

Put on a wife-beater and some booty shorts and get ready to beat the heat tomorrow.  Since you didn't go to Orientation today, you need to go tomorrow to register (why in the HELL were we registering on paper in 2005!?!??!!) and to get your ID.  It is going to be damn near 100 degrees in DC tomorrow.  Just be prepared to be patient and deal with all of the ridiculousness that you will experience tomorrow.  I fenagled/flirted my way into getting my ID today -- thank GOD that I had the wherewithall to do that....I would probably go OFF on somebody tomorrow.  It is going to be too hot for that sh*t!!!!

wow! im not to surprised to hear that,coming from HBCU myself. o well, i can only hope tomorrow is better. It is dissapointing to hear though. i was doubting even going to the pinning ceremony really. cuz there's a 4 hour break from 1-5pm i believe, what i am supposed to do for all that time?!?!?
