Ball State opens up tonight. Can’t wait. Even though I have to board-op the first half. Argh.
ND opens up Saturday, and Ellen is coming over to watch since this will probably be our only chance to watch a game together this year, thanks to her rugby stuff. I can’t wait because Ellen is one of my very close friends and definitely among the most fun people in the world to watch a game with. It is too bad that we have not seen each other more often this last few months.
I always feel like a third/fourth/fifth wheel, and I don’t know why. Anytime I’m at CSL or WCRD stuff, Kyle, Karl and Eric all kid around and joke. I mean, I’m friends with all of them, and I can joke with them too, but when those three get going, it’s nuts. I guess that comes with the territory, since Kyle and Eric live together and the three of them are probably more so than anyone else THE three juniors of WCRD/CSL. But I really thought I’d end up best friends with someone, anyone, eventually down here, and it’s never really happened. No matter who it is I befriend, I always end up preferring to go home and hang out with Mark or Brooks. And that’s ok, but when I’m at school I want people to hang out with, and here it seems like if I want to hang out, I have two options, the roommate Davis or Ellen, and Ellen only on Sundays when we go to church. Not that I have any problem with Davis at all, of course, but the more friends you have, the more time you get to spend with said friends, eh?
Oh, well. Anyway I need to get to News class then Vince wants me to duck out early and meet him at the studio to discuss the game tonight when I board-op. I assume it’s about the severe lack of commercials we have for the games (only one IHSAA CD full of PSAs for HS games, and nothing else I can think of for the other stuff).
