U.S. Open can suck golf balls

Ok so I go to UCSD, and it just so happened that Torrey Pines would be the host of the U.S. Open this year. What does that have to do with my life you ask? Well, it just so happens that Torrey Pines is right next to UCSD, and a good majority of the parking spots that are already thin as it is for students are going to be used by U.S. Open patrons and the like. Seriously, are you fucking kidding me?
I, for one, am a commuter. I don't live on campus, and I especially don't live near (I'm from southeast San Diego, thanks) or around La Jolla. And ever so conveniently, finals are happening the same week that the U.S. Open is in town. That, and graduation commencement is being PUSHED BACK a week for this tournament.
Good looking out for the students Chancellor Fox and company. Really, good looking out.

I'm taking three classes now here at UC Berkeley (aka Cal). It's an awesome campus, and I'm totally intrigued by how liberal everyone here seems to be. Not just in the political sense, but also in the more personal sense. Everyone just seems to have this "I'm me and this is who I am dammit" attitude that is a breath of fresh air away from San Diego (which looks more and more conservative everyday that I'm here in Berkeley/Bay Area).
I'm actually looking into going to Cal and Stanford as perspective graduate school choices up here (as well as UCSD down south for sure). On the east coast, it's Harvard and M.I.T.
Ok time to get back to reality and listen in class!
