FOOD was public enemy #1 today, as I starved the whole day, working first at EH&S in the morning (making copies and posting room signs in BSB), and then going to ThinkTogether in the afternoon. The kids today were decent, me having an okay time at lunch. Group 7 was entertaining at best in Film class, until one girl started crying randomly. I thought it was because her boyfriend broke up with her so I moved him into another film group, but it was instead because the boy that liked her saw her kiss her boyfriend the day prior, and subsequently ditched school because he was jealous. I didn’t see how that made her cry though, but she fleshed details out to me saying "I like him… but I love my boyfriend". Girl neeeda’ pick a man and be loyal. SHEESH. With second period, I played Math Charades with Group 8, which was definitely a struggle, but worked out somewhat decently as we tackled some of the toughest math terms. Group 6 for Film was extremely well behaved that one group already finished their whole film.
After the debacle that was work, I surprised Geetha at her place, and waited for her to get ready. We went to Von’s and got some Hamburger Helper, and afterwards migrated to my place to cook some "lasagna". Unfortunately it didn’t turn out very good, being ultimately bitter and salty. Some pizza was microwaved to try to remedy the situation, but that didn’t help either. As a result, me, Geetha, and Lauren all went to 1) Chipotle, to eat 2) AMC, to buy Harry Potter tickets for tomorrow and 3) Ralph’s so Lauren could do her grocery shopping. After chillaxing at my place for a bit afterwards, I went to Geetha’s place to hang out for the rest of the night.
In Los Angeles, California, Senator John F. Kennedy of Massachusetts is nominated for the presidency by the Democratic Party Convention, defeating Senator Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas. The next day, Johnson was named Kennedy’s running mate by a unanimous vote of the convention. Four months later, on November 8, Kennedy won 49.7 percent of the popular vote in one of the closest presidential elections in U.S. history, surpassing by a fraction the 49.6 percent received by Vice President Richard M. Nixon, a Republican. SIGH… assassinated by the FED later
A frustrated President Obama warned Republicans not to "call my bluff" before he stormed out on the latest stalled debt negotiation session, Republicans said. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va) said the President became "agitated" before warning him not to "call my bluff" when Cantor said he would consider a short-term debt-limit hike, something Obama has said doesn’t solve the problem. ERM AWKWARD…
