After my math final tomorrow will mean the end of a my freshman year in college. It went by super fast. But as that ends I start working more and it begins with a five day streak of 7-hour closing shifts on Thursday all the way to Monday. I am going to be fucking tired.

Pain = money I guess.

I finished up Grand Theft Auto IV this morning. The ending I got (there are two to be exact) was the happier of the two, if you can even say that. The last mission was pretty annoying but I managed to get through. Now it is on to multiplayer. Should be fun.

As for today I am typing this in my computer science class during a lecture. I could of skipped this class if I knew there would be no roll call. The teacher is talking about useless stuff that won’t be on the final so I am not bothering to listen. Later on today is my last test before the final in math. I’m hoping I can get a passing grade on it to keep my overall grade to a C. Just got to keep positive. I also need to find time tonight to write up a quick short essay about the film Crash (the racist one) for English. I don’t really give a shit about it but I will quickly bullshit it to get it out of the way. After this essay I am pretty much done with anything big until the week of the 19th when finals start. Time should fly by.

I finally started my English midterm this morning. As of right now I have about a page and a half done. It only needs to be five to six pages long. I will probably write up to five (including my sneaky space tactic) and use page six as the works cited page which I have building on some website. I won’t finish it all in this one weekend. I hopefully will get most of it done and see about getting the teacher to see if I cited the works correctly (I am confused for one part) and then will finish it up by the middle or end of next week before the April 29th due date. After this gets done I will be much happier, well aside from my ever falling math grade.

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.

The string of dreams that have given me the big ol’ “WTF” feeling in the morning have continued the last few days. These new dreams have been increasing in number every night and have become more insane in terms of content. I really can’t put it together to make sense. I won’t even bother describing some of them because they are just out there. It is killing my sleep schedule and causing me to wake up every hour or so. I keep trying to stay awake during classes and even while driving. If it continues into the weekend I am going to see about getting some meds or something. Anything to stop this cycle. I can’t handle it anymore.

As for school, in math yesterday we had a test. I probably did horrible. All I ask for is a C at best. I really hate the class and teacher. Although over the last week or so I have gotten to know a few people a bit better in the class so we often make jokes and comment about each other. As for today we had a debate in English. The first debate was the pros and cons of gun control. I found myself in the group who were tasked with the cons. Since the group was me and two girls I had to hold it up pretty much on my own. I defended and countered arguments until the debate was over. The teacher declared both groups equal and we moved on to the next debate. In this debate, about the pros and cons of patriotism, I was a spectator. Both groups fought hard but in the end seemed equal. The teacher asked the rest of us if there was anything else they could have used. I spoke up and mentioned something which seemed to catch the teacher’s attention. Bonus points for me.

Now I am just waiting for the old folks to get the fuck off the TV so I can play some Mass Effect.

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.

Yesterday was decent. Went to English and then suffered through another hour of the computer lab. Total hours as of yesterday was just over three. I plan to make up another hour tomorrow but am questioning whether I should do an hour today or half an hour and the same for Friday to get my five. Then I just to two thirty minute labs on Tuesdays and Thursdays after that to get my one hour a week (or two if I need to get ahead for whatever reason. It is super boring in there and since I have no work I just fumble around. I’m sure someone is going to notice eventually. Maybe I can use my laptop or something. And as for school I think I will be getting last week’s math test back. Here’s hoping I did good.

Today’s English proved to be lame once again. The teacher didn’t grade all the essays due to the jackasses who turned theirs in late so we get to wait until Thursday. For the rest of the class he had us get in groups and create a satirical paragraph or skit. When he let us start it was only one other person and myself. Five minutes later another came. Another five minutes and the last person came. While they dicked around I came up with a paragraph about hybrid cars that used soft drinks as an alternate fuel source. It would turn out that my brain managed to bullshit that pretty well without my useless group and class went by.

I got home and loaded Grand Theft Auto and finally beat the stupid fucking flight training missions. Such bullshit. Now I am in the Las Vegas style city and fighting mobsters. It’s getting hard now. As for the rest of my day I prepared my laptop with Songbird and uninstalled iTunes. It was acting screwy when I first put it on but after a reboot everything turned out fine. I plan to use it tomorrow to waste time in the lab.

As for computer science, one of the lab assignments is technically due tomorrow but since he hasn’t shown us how to do the format he wants I don’t see how he can ask for it. Hopefully he realizes this and puts it off until sometime next week. This will also give me more of an excuse to get those five hours in the lab. I am also a bit torn about my lab time for the class tomorrow as I need to go over some math for the test. I might end up leaving the house early tomorrow so I can get a little lab in before my computer science class and then get at least ten to fifteen in the math lab to study with Sable. We’ll have to see how that turns out.

Another week of school. Great. The good thing is that it is only four days, then a four day weekend, then another four day week. Thank you dead preisdents.

This morning I played some Grand Theft Auto: SA and the Xbox Live Arcade game Puzzle Quest which is pretty neat. I need to get my chick to a higher level as well as learn to solve the puzzles better. Then it came time to leave. The drive was pretty smooth. Only a little traffic near the school but managed to get there a little early. I drive fast. So what.

In Computer Science we started to mess with Visual Basic. Seems pretty simple for now. I’m sure it will get harder. I also have four hours of lab to make up but without knowing how to set it up right (the teacher hasn’t told us yet) I cannot do them. After Wednesday’s class I plan to get at least two hours done this week and then do the other two plus one more (as next week is week five). Hopefully that will balance it out.

During my break I helped Sable out in the math lab burning some extra hours away so I can sidetrack a bit and do the Computer Science lab this week and next week. Surprisingly I managed to stay awake today. I wanted to leave early but she pulled out a last minute activity for us to do. My little group managed to get most of it done extra for one problem we all forgot to do. Now I just have to prepare myself for the test Wednesday.

Tomorrow is my favorite short day. No, not because it is English. I don’t like the class. I only like the day because it is short. Anyway, I get my essay back tomorrow which I am hoping I did well on. I went over the page limit he wanted but I hope it helps me out in the long run. We’ll see. Hopefully class goes by quick. Then it will be back home to Grand Theft Auto.
