music: RHCP - "Make You Feel Better"

So, I'm sitting here in the library.  I've been so swamped with work lately, I've really been here for the greater part of every day since Thursday, but atleast it's almost over and I'm in the home stretch.  I had two exams today.  The first one this morning, Managerial Behavior,  I think went quite well, which is ironic because I didn't really need to do that well on it to secure an A, but I won't complain.  However, I wish my more important, second one, Finance,  went better - I think I did well, but I was really unsure about some stuff, and just enough to really put me on the border of messing up my A in the class, so we'll see.  I know I sound crazy. :p But it's important to me.  We'll see what happens, but the class isn't in my major so it's not that big a deal.

On top of those two things, I also had a huge assignment due today in my Money and Banking class that took about three hours, and I have two assignments due for my Income Tax Accounting class tomorrow - either an 8-10 page research paper or a series of memo things, and a 1040 Tax Return problem he gave us to do.  The memos are basically answers to hypothetical questions a client would ask you to research - ie, if something is taxable, deductible, the consequences of an event, etc - and you need to research it, find the appropriate IRS code sections, and court cases.  I started to do it on Friday and got on a roll, but apparently the law has changed recently for the topic I chose, and I was pretty much SOL.  I couldn't find the new laws, just news and reports about them, so I had to start over.  I decided to do the research paper, but after about 3 pages I'm out of things to say about continuing educational expenses -- which was a new topic I chose, by the way, because holiday gifts can go die.  Anyways, I sorta had an epiphany, and I'm going to write new memos based on the educational expenses stuff I've researched -- the memos are shorter and more to the point, and I can twist the situation around to my liking, so I think it'll be okay.  After that, I have to do the tax return which will take a while.. ideally, I'd like to finish this all tonight, but I do have until 545pm tomorrow.  I know I'm ranting and no one cares, but I felt the need to just write about all of this, so there you go.

Anyways, because I was tagged by I.See...

List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're not any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your livejournal along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they're listening to.

1. Gwen Stefani - "4 In The Morning"... sort of a "Don't Speak" meets "We Belong Together" thing going on, but I love it.  It's a song you can just listen to over and over and over again, and not get sick of it - catchy as fuck but heartfelt.  It pains me to see her doing Fergie-esque nonsense when she has songs like this and "Early Winter" up her sleeve (that would be my #2, but I'll diversify the list).

2. Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Make You Feel Better" - This isn't really anything special, but it just struck a chord while I was studying over the weekend while listening to the album.

3. Damien Rice - "Rootless Tree" I downloaded his album, but never listened to every song - and I played it while I was studying and this song caught me completely off guard. It started off in typical acousticy, melodic goodness.. until the chorus, where guitars chime in and the shouts of "FUCK YOU! FUCK YOU!" out of nowhere. Brilliant.

4. Nelly Furtado - "Say It Right" This was always the highlight of the Loose album to me, and I'm glad to see it's doing well in the US.  The live iTunes original version is even better.

5. Robin Thicke - "Wanna Love You Girl" It's a year or two old, but it's a good laid back track.  The Neptunes don't really do much right anymore, but this is pretty good.

6. Keane - "Crystal Ball" I was obsessed with this song for a while, got burnt out, but it's back in my good graces again.  Too bad it flopped, but whatever.

7. Blue October - "Into the Ocean" Weird song, but I guess blame the Jill and Becky-o effect.  

I'm not tagging anyone, because almost everyone on my list has done it already.

Crystal Ball was released here? News to me. ;)

I want to try Damien Rice's music. Is he that mellow? The 'f*ck you' chorus intrigues me. ;)
