March 1. Professors are stupid. Ok, not all of them are, but

most of them are. My American government professor is really stupid. he neglected

to tell the class that he was going to be in OK today. and that we weren’t

haveing class. so everyone showed up and sat there for the 15 minutes. ARG.

i couldn’t slept in longer. damnit. I also talked to the people that were

offering me the job in philly. sounds like i pretty much have it, but i have

to decide where i want to work. he was talking to be about working C.O.P.E. that would be tons of fun. but i don’t know. for those that don’t know what

C.O.P.E. is it stands for Challenging Outdoor Personal Experience. It’s basically

a team building and push yourself to the limits exercise, it’s a ton of fun.

i got to do it at the best C.O.P.E. course in the country last summer. that

was great. There’s bassically three different levels. the begining, the low

course and the high course. The begining is basically playing all kinds of

games, games that show leadership and team cooperation and stuff like that.

and then you move to the low course which is where you basically walk a crouse

logs and other various objects, but it’s harder then that, you have to figure

out how to get from one spot to the next and get everyone there. and there

are other tricks to it that makes it hard. that’s is basically building trust

in your team members. becuase if you fall they have to catch you, etc. then

you move to the high course. located of course HIGH, everything on the high

course is about 50-100 feet off the ground. it’s pretty amazing. and there

are all kinds of ropes courses and other stuff that you have to do. this is

the part where you build your confidence etc. because you have to trust in

your self that you can make it, you are attachted to a balay (sp?) but that’s

there just in case you fall and if you do you’re pulled back up to the spot

where you fell and you continue on the course. it’s a ton of fun, really it

is. but it’s also alot of work for those that work it and can be dangerous.

the confidense pole and the flying squeral are the best but also the worst

to get people to do. but once you do it you want to keep doing it again and

again. i remember the first time i did the flying squarel i was scared to

death, and they were counting down to “launch” and they hit one

and i took off. and they fucking dropped me. but once they got my up to the

top (about 150 feet where i was), you have to BEST view it was so cool i didn’t

want down, lol. and then to get down from there you have to sing a song. i

sung “ging gang gooley”. lol. it was great. Fuel is going to be

in lincoln on the 31st. i wish i had money i would drive down there and see

them. damnit. i want money.
