What made you happy this week? Like since last Thursday? Probably getting to take a picture with my boyfriend. (We didn't have one together and we've been together since October 2007)

What made you sad? Boyfriend from the last question broke up with me on Tuesday.

What made you angry? Boyfriend broke up with me for NO reason other than that he "doesn't want a girlfriend right now". After a year.

What are you looking forward to in the next week? Going home and getting away from everyone at school so I can hopefully stop thinking about this breakup.

What are you not looking forward to? Going to Pennsylvania for Thanksgiving because I know it'll give me a lot of time to think. Coming back to school and still not being back together with my boyfriend because I think it's officially over this time.

Ooh, good one for this week. I had a lot happen.

1. What made you happy this week?
*A teacher getting a reference form in for me in one day. OMG miracle worker.
*The study abroad office printing my transcript for me in a few hours when they said it would take 2-3 business days.
*Consequently, getting my entire application for JET entirely assembled.
*The five-pound bag of pistachios my parents sent me.
*Having some time to chill out and play Rock Band on Wednesday.
*Getting to sleep in (aka: not wake up at 6:00; I still had to wake up at 9:00) four out of five days this week.
*Lots of delicious food I encountered, like Red Bean Lover crepes and chocolate-chip pumpkin cake. Mm, the holidays . . .

2. What made you sad?
*Hearing about the terrible betrayal one of my best friends just went through regarding one of her close friends: not only was she replaced as Maid of Honor in her wedding, but she was informed of this replacement via text message. Then, when my friend confronted the girl about it I guess she decided to sever all ties completely and form an elaborate delusion to justify herself: She told my friend that their entire friendship has always been a lie and she was just using her because her family treated her to nice things. Then she went and posted notes in Internet forums middle-school-cyberbully-style, tagging all her friends, about how she's overcome her "abusive" friendship with my friend. Pretty sick.
*Having to reject one of my best friends romantically.
*More just disappointing than sad, but having to tell my thesis adviser how little progress I've made since our last meeting.

3. What made you angry?
*The friend-betrayal thing I mentioned above.
*Initially, the study abroad department not responding to my emails after a week, and me having to go in and make some demands, and being told my transcipt would take 2-3 days to print and I'd have to . (However, them jumping on the ball once I did go in there and talk to them makes up for this).

4. What are you looking forward to in the next week?
*Chocolate fondue party.
*Campus-hosted rave-esque party.
*Supposedly the photoshoot I get to be a model in, wearing the outfit my friend who is a fashion design major created.
*It being Thanksgiving and therefore BREAK this time next week.

5. What are you not looking forward to?
*My next meeting with my thesis advisor.
*Attempting to conquer all the work that I have to conquer.
*It only getting colder.

Ah, fantastic topic to summarize my past 2 days...

1- What made you happy this week?
I got a 94% on my midterm

2- What made you sad?
I can't cheer anyone else up without making myself feel quite useless and seriously depressed

3- What made you angry?
People not really seeming to care that you're putting other important things that you need to do aside to help them, only to have them not really seem to care about your sacrifices for them. And my grandfather deciding to take my mom to FL to visit her sister without even seeing if she'd be free for their visit or even asking what my mom wants.

4- What are you looking forward to in the next week?
possibly seeing friends i haven't seen in a long long time

5- What are you not looking forward to?
dealing with my impatient, ignorant grandfather that thinks my mom is incapable of anything just because she has aphasia and can't say everything she wants to say when she wants to say it.

People being really mean in another comm and thinking about being away from friends next semester when I go abroad.
03. What made you angry?
PUSHING DAISIES BEING CANCELLED. Fuck that.
04. What are you looking forward to in the next week?
Going home for Thanksgiving break & going to Homecoming at my high school and seeing friends. :)
05. What are you not looking forward to?
The inevitable family drama that will also occur with this going-home.

# What made you happy this week?
- reading in the campus bookstore and in the library, and feeling some moments of intellectual connection again, that I feared had dissipated.
- lots of good friend-related things: seeing a good friend who graduated last year and was visiting campus; having a good conversation with one my best friends tonight; having a good conversation with my other best friend and being an ear for her since she just had sex for the first time; hanging out in some late-night sessions with friends, and with a group of people who aren't friends but hopefully will be

# What made you sad?
- My laptop died :(
- That the economy is tanking and there will probably be nary a job for me when I graduate in the spring.
- Similar to what someone wrote above ... having to admit to my thesis advisor I'm behind where I should be on research.
- That I didn't finish a paper I had promised myself I'd finish before I left campus for the weekend.
- I observed in a high school, which was hella depressing ... no one seemed engaged, everyone was just marking time. Very factory-like. Seemed like a waste of young lives.
- SO COLD

# What made you angry?
- I was angry at myself for procrastinating so much ... stuff that I could've accomplished last week, or this weekend, or this week I now still have to do, which kind of messes up my Thanksgiving break
- Angry at the computer tech people for being soooo slow, nonchalant, and incommunicado about my broken laptop, which I need SOON.

# What are you looking forward to in the next week?
- Tomorrow I'm going to Boston for my school's big college football weekend! I'll be seeing some high school friends and having a crazy time. There are many micro things I'm looking forward to within this category.
- Seeing my parents, brother, cute little cousins, and assorted extended family for Thanksgiving.

# What are you not looking forward to?
- Forcing myself to focus on the insane amount of paper-writing/academic catch-up I have to do.
- The FREEZING COLD.

1. What made you happy this week?
Eating chocolate fondue tonight. Chocolate never fails to make me happy, though.

2. What made you sad?
My bird/best friend of the past 10 years passed away. Sad doesn't seem like a strong enough word to cover it.

3. What made you angry?
Getting food poisoning for the second time in a few months. Especially since the sandwich I got was so tasty at the time.

4. What are you looking forward to in the next week?
Going home for Thanksgiving! I am excited to eat food again.

5. What are you not looking forward to?
Saying goodbye to my bird (she's getting a viking funeral sans pyre). Also not being able to spend more than a few days at home because of work. Blah, being an adult is no fun.

1. What made you happy this week? The fact that it's very nearly Christmas. Hell yes. Nearly end of term. Sun. Reaching 30k, finally! I had a half day on Wednesday that I spent with my friends, and it was so awesome!
2. What made you sad? Not being able to talk to Jace all week. But that always makes me sad.
3. What made you angry? Some certain people being complete and utter bitches. And I was kinda angry at myself for procrastinating on NaNo and studying and not being able to juggle all the things that I wanted to do. And Heroes didn't record because Sky fucking broke and it cancelled wtf wtf wtf argh.
4. What are you looking forward to in the next week? Exams. Does that sound weird? I just want to get them over with. And hopefully more sun.
5. What are you not looking forward to? Exams. Going back to school on Monday and going to Spanish and it being all awkward and shitty (guy I like sits next to me). I'm going to have to try so hard not to punch a bunch of people in the face. Also finishing NaNo - it's going to be a struggle but I CAN DO IT!
