My sleeping has been shitty the last few days but last night was the worst by far. I couldn’t crash when I attempted to go to sleep at midnight. Instead I tested something with my camera which burned an hour (visit my DeviantArt page to see the results). Pretty much every hour after that I kept waking up. I eventually said fuck it and got out of bed around 7am. I hope I’m not like this tonight/tomorrow or school is going to own my soul.

As for school my grades finally were uploaded. Career planning got an A, math had a B, and economics, which I was worried about, got a C. The English class was given full credit. So I passed all my classes and got the full amount of units that I took last semester. My GPA is currently a 3.0. Now all I need to do is maintain that and I should be good.

Never waste a full day and not do anything when you have four research papers, two pages of economics homework, and an English essay due next week.

Now I only have two days. Fuck.

Today had it’s share of boring moments. Economics class was somewhat interesting as we discussed unemployment and inflation to prepare ourselves for the test on Monday. I was glad when the class was over though. As I drove down to the main campus for math I got behind a car that was going a bit slow for my tastes, so I sped up and changed lanes. Doing what most do, I looked over to see what kind of person was driving. I was a bit shocked. It appeared to be my counsel teacher. I quickly pulled away and then got back in the lane. It looked like him, but I can’t be 100% sure. Even if it was him, I expected him to have a better car.

Anyway, once math started I already knew I would be bored out of my mind. Get ready. It was. I nodded off twenty minutes in. The fucking class seems to last forever. When it finally drew to a close I was relived and swiftly got to my car and got the hell out of there.

I got home and played a few games of Halo 3 (the reference of the post’s title comes from one of the games). Then I watched some show about the Berlin Wall. Not much else to say for now.

The Digg theme didn’t last long, so now I’m going with this minimalist theme for now. You might have also noticed a change in the name of the blog. Might not be permanent but nothing ever is.

As for today, it was a bit interesting. The day started as any other Tuesday or Thursday starts. Bored as hell in English class. We just discussed our topics for our new essays that are due next Tuesday. The teacher (I refuse to use the term professor) slammed my rough draft without reading it. She asked me what it was about so I gave her the brief overview of my already written rough draft. As I explained that information she injected her comments about it and wanted all this extra, and in my eyes, unneeded information. I felt that the information (which is apparently supposed to make it easier on the readers) wasn’t needed because of the way I write. Now I do plan on mopping up the rough draft a bit (you can find it here). I also need to trim it down in order for it to fit on one page. We’ll see how this situation plays itself out.

During my break between English and math I was relaxing in one of the grass quads. I noticed a large group of people dressed in business attire walking towards the cafeteria. They were wearing lanyards, but the shapes were different with each group. Then it hit me. It must be the training day for Virtual Enterprise. I remembered doing the same thing last year when I was still in high school. We went to the college to get training for the class. I felt like going to see if I could find my old teacher. After a bit of waiting I was able to and I met up with Andrew who took the class a year before me. She asked if we could talk to the group as former students. Both of us were a bit hesitant, but we agreed. Three other people talked about their experiences before I got up. I quickly came up with an impromptu speech in my head. I felt like it constructed itself well. Good enough to make Andrew speechless when it was his turn because I said everything he wanted to say. Bullshitting works. After a brief goodbye with the teacher I hurried over to math.

Math consisted of a test. Nothing exciting. Just graphing lines, solving systems, and working out rates and other garbage I never plan on using. I finished the test in about thirty minutes meaning I was out of there quite a bit early. With two hours and thirty minutes to spare I headed over to “the hill” as we call it (or as I like to say “Hill 1400”) . I finished up my counsel 50 homework which only took thirty minutes off. Bored as hell I headed for my car. I got in the passenger seat and relaxed. I remembered I brought my Onion books so I pulled out one and started ready. There is some great stuff in the books. I read a bunch of their articles by the time my time was up (no pun intended).

Once I got to my counsel class I got my homework out and turned it in. The rest of the class time was to go over, in more detail, the results from a special packet that analyzes our skills and other attributes to determine our career paths. Mine came up with some odd results such as florist and farmer. By now you should have realized that I hate the outdoors. Aside from those oddities I also had the military and law enforcement which proved interesting. Now we need to research four career options and narrow it down to one for a research paper.

After school I got gas as I was nearing empty, then I headed home. Haven’t done much since then. Just watched a few shows including the first two episodes of Chuck on NBC’s website. I’ve been meaning to get around to it but I put it off for too long and finally got around to it. Seems interesting and a good dose of funny. Can’t go wrong with Adam Baldwin.

I think it’s time for some sleep now.

Also, if you have any ideas/suggestions for changes or anything of that nature, just leave me a comment on this post.

I’m home after a brief day at school, which actually felt slow and fast at the same time. Whatever. Now I have to manage my time, wisely. I need to finish up some Counsel 50 homework which should be fast but I’m to lazy to check how much I have. That should be all I have to do, I think. I’m not sure if I have English homework, but I guess I will find out tomorrow in class or by someone right before. The rest of my night is dedicated to training for COMPANY OF HEROES: OPPOSING FRONTS (no, I’m not going to stop capitalizing it until I have it, in my hands) and to watch the Heroes season premiere. If I do have some time left open I might do so math (yeah right) or study for the upcoming economics test (sure).

Tomorrow will be a good day if I get a certain something. It’s in big fucking letters. No, not Halo 3.

You should have noticed that I haven’t posted very much about school and that I really haven’t posted much at all in the last week or so. College has been sucking my life away along with other things I have been doing. I am barely home these days and have been out until late at night. I guess I can talk about my classes now since I have some time on my hands.

The first class I have for the week is economics. The teacher is a former businessman who just happens to ride a motorcycle. He likes to joke a little bit, but not too much. Seems like a fun guy and the class looks like it will be interesting. I only know one person in the class, which is good considering that it is the only one of my classes not at the main campus.

Next is math. The math teacher gets to the point and goes in to detail about whatever he happens to be teaching that day. So far we are doing basic shit so I usually just want to go to sleep. We also get homework everyday which kind of sucks, but apparently it is not required. Whatever.

My English class is not a usual English class. It is more focused on writing than anything else and later on in the semester we get a nice six hour a week lab that is required and not to mention we have to take a test and get a damn good grade to even get credit for the course. The teacher is your average old lady English teacher. We’ll see how that works out.

And finally there is my career planning class which seems like it will be the most interesting and entertaining one of the semester. The teacher is full German. Born there and everything. He speaks English as his second language but speaks it without an accent or anything. Funny guy who can mix humor with serious talk pretty easily. Even though the class is late in the day I look forward to it on those days.

That’s about it for now. I’ll try and conjure up a story for you people in a bit.
