I have been tired as hell lately. Work has eaten up the last week or so, although I can’t really complain since it will mean a decent paycheck (and since I don’t have anymore debt I’ll be extra happy). My days have been pretty slow and boring before work. As for work I have been training for photo as of Saturday. Going pretty smooth so far. I have only made one decent sized mistake but aside from that doing ok. Just a matter of remembering how to do it. The other thing I have to get do is manage my time better. Not only am I in photo but I also have other duties that need to get done throughout my day. It probably will take me a little bit to get used to it. I start solo in photo on Monday. It’s going to a nervous day.

All I know is that I want Civilization Revolution ASAP but there is still two or so weeks until it does. The best part is I have three days off to play it when it does. That fucking rocks.

Also, Tube Tuesday is done for a little while. I don’t have time to do much ‘tube browsing to find anything.

It’s the weekend before my midterm is due and I feel like crap. Stuffed nose, sore throat, headache, fever, a few aches and pain. It fucking sucks. I popped some meds earlier and continued to work on the midterm. I am pretty sure it is done but I may tweak it a bit as Tuesday gets closer. There isn’t much else I can write for it so I am semi happy with it. My computer science teacher thought it would be an awesome idea to make the last lab of the year due Wednesday so I get to make a four page website. I’ll probably end up doing that Tuesday night.

In other news I have been playing Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars lately. I managed to beat the GDI campaign so far (this is my first time doing the campaigns in the game even though I have had it for a while now). After working on the midterm I started the Nod campaign. Should be interesting.

And as for Grand Theft Auto IV, well I won’t be getting it until Wednesday or Thursday as I could only afford 2-day shipping from Gamestop and the fact I am saving gas by not going to the store. It also lets me have time to do the website as I would end up playing the game all day and forget. Although I am hoping there are no big assignments next weekend as I will be playing all damn day once it arrives. It is going to own so hard.

Looking over the stats for the last few days I haven’t seen a large increase. I’m hitting about my daily average. I will continue doing the Tube Tuesday thing to see if that changes. There are a few other things I am considering as I am planning on changing the blog up and decentralize it from the same stuff every post (mainly my boredom and school day). We’ll see how that goes.

Anyway, as for today, English was nothing special. We went over some more stuff to help us with the mid-term and then answered some questions on some reading. I also turned in my essay. Hopefully I get a half decent grade on it. It is not one of my best, that’s for sure. After class I spend an hour in the computer lab wasting time as usual. Only have five hours left which is nice. Speaking of computers, I have a test in my computer science class. I plan on going over the book quickly before class to make sure I somewhat understand it. I’m pretty sure it will be mostly about Visual Basic, but I guess I just have to find out.

If you are wondering about “mux” in the title, it is related to a site where you can put up twelve songs to make a mixtape for people to listen over the internet. I made one in hopes of matching aspects of my day to certain songs. You can judge it for yourself and figure out which songs they are here: http://nfxfsx.muxtape.com/

School started again today. Spring break is gone and waking up wasn’t easy this morning. It took me about two hours to get out of bed and when I did I didn’t do much. After getting ready I headed out. When I got to my computer science class I turned in my two Visual Basic labs and got to my station. Today’s lesson was Paint. Yes, Paint. I was bored to death as the teacher explained what you could do in it. I wanted to kill someone. After class I headed to the math lab to start on the homework due Wednesday. I managed to do the worksheet section but tomorrow and Wednesday before class I will need to do the book work for the assignment. Shouldn’t take too long, just a matter of getting myself to do it. Speaking of math class, it was a drag like usual. Nothing of interest.

Tomorrow is English which hopefully will fly by. I need to start and finish the essay for Thursday. Knowing me I will wait until Wednesday night. I’ll try to start it tomorrow if I can pull myself to do it. The mid-term is due April 29th. I’ll probably look into it next week or so. Not too worried about it.

I finished up my Soulstorm campaign today. Saved the Necrons for last and they were a bit of a pain in the ass. The Penitent Engines for the Sisters of Battle saved my ass though. Those things rock. I’m still rusty when it comes to doing skirmish battles so I need to warm up again.

As for the rest of the day it was pretty much boring. I have just been working on some homework and sitting back wasting time. For computer science I finished another Visual Basic lab. Had to code a program to calculate late book fees. I am hoping I filled out the forms correctly for the A. For English I started my essay that is due Tuesday. It is a bullshit essay. No doubt about that. I have to “define” beauty and compare it to some feminist’s essay from the 1970’s or some shit. Lame. Should pop it out tomorrow night. I also need to study up for math as the dreaded test is Wednesday. I need to do good on it to pull my ass out of the slump I’m currently in.

I’m blazing through the Dawn of War: Soulstorm campaign, literally. The Sisters of Battle have slaughtered the Space Marines, Imperial Guard, and the Orks. Those left will tremble with fear as I head towards them. The next on my list to annihilate are the Tau. Those fuckers are pissing me off and I want to steal their big space gun. Then it will be either the Eldar, Dark Eldar, Chaos, or Necrons. Should be interesting.

In school news, I have an essay, some math, and a computer science lab to do this weekend. My bullshit skills are preparing themselves.
