Besides this being you two youts destiny, there is a big difference between the ponies at his present school and the ponies in Colombus.

And probably many differences between Columbus and my community college.

But together, we shall be strong.

I live 30 minutes north of Purdue. That's the main reason for not going to Purdue . I think literally about 60% of my graduating class is at Purdue. Hell, my college right now is in the same town as Purdue and I see enough of them just driving to class. I was popular in high school, but I don't want college to be Tri-County High School: Redux.

IU, is my 3rd choice. When I graduated, I got accepted into Notre Dame, but I foolishly didn't take that opportunity. IMO, The OSU is a better school for PoliSci/History than IU, and I'm not willing to forego the opportunity at a better school again. I was also thinking Univ. of Indy. I work for a trucking company right now and if I go to UIndy, I could still work at the terminals in Indy and then I could also live with my girlfriend.

Not so foolishly, you would have been praying to the "Need a Football Team Jesus" instead of the "Touchdown Jesus", not sure which has been easier the past year.

OSU will provide greater long-term benefit than UofIndy. All the best...

It's tough to beat an alumni network of 400,000. I'm frequently told by people from all walks of life that the best bets for connections (aside from Ivy League caliber schools) are the large, good-quality public schools. I'm talking OSU, Michigan, Virginia, UFlorida, UMaryland, etc.

IMO Notre Dame is one of the most overrated private colleges in the country.

Ehh, overrated or not, it's still a great school. And I took it as a great honor to even be accepted.

Knowing that it is raining and all of the snow in New York City will be melted by tommorow morning when I go looking for some new clothes to buy

Your title suggests things which are temporary: I'd say the incredible February climate at the moment; clear blue skies every day and temps of 12-14 degrees. And my gf's imminent return from 6 months in France.

Things which makes me happy generally? Oh, the usual suspects for many average people.

1. second twin called me daddy yesterday. walked up to me, poked me and said "daddy"

2. son took part in first wrestling tournement. he is now 4rth place regional champion in his weight class for northern illonois. it would be a hell of a lot more impressive if there were more than 4 people competing in his wieght class. but I am happy he participated before the end of th season, now he is very interested in competing next year.

3. spent yesterday putting together new furniture for my sons room, and hanging pictures. I am very happy with the way the house looks.

I'm looking forward to two friends coming in from Chicago and Denver next month to visit me in DC. A nice day off for us over spring break.

We had a great Oscars party last night. About 10 friends over to mingle, eat, and drink.
