Yesterday was the first day of the new semester. I finally got a decent night of sleep and woke up the next morning and watched Life After People. It was pretty interesting. Around 8:45am I got my hot chocolate and headed out the door. The rain was pounding during my drive down to the campus. Once I arrived I got out and began searching for my new English class. I found it and found a nice seat in the back. The other students poured in one-by-one and I made sure to see if there was anyone I knew. Unlucky for me, there isn’t one person I know. There are two I will have to keep my eye on though. As for the class itself, the teacher seems okay. We are going to be learning some easy stuff aside from having to do an absurd amount of essays. Oh, and poetry. Meh. I also believe that the teacher might be Canadian or something. It sounded like the accent was trying to pop out during the end of class. We’ll have to see about that. The drive home (only class of the day) was pretty shitty. Rain pouring mixed with bad visibility for the lose.

Today sleep was okay. I did wake up before my alarm though which kind of pissed me off. Whatever. I stayed in bed for some time while checking some sites. This time the ride down was fine and my first class was Computer Science. Luckily for me I know one of the guys in there so I got a seat near him. The teacher explained what we would be doing. The first few weeks are total bullshit in my eyes. Basic computer knowledge (aka: this is how you openĀ  a folder, this is how you copy a file, etc). For fuck’s sakes. This is an introduction to programming class and they are starting it like this!? People shouldn’t be in the class if they don’t know how to use a computer. It’s retarded. After my initial reaction the rest was fine. The programming stuff looks fun. The only other gripe is having a lab. I have to be in there for the same amount of time as the math lab. Ugh. 32 total bullshit hours as I call them. During my break I hung out with a few people and found out one of them was in my math class. We headed over when it was time and I found myself amazed that my math class wasn’t in the math building. Instead it is in a portable across the campus. Lame. The room is pretty fucking trashy and it stinks. The teacher seems ok but I dozed off as usual during her lecture. I hate math. Oh and apparently the problems in the book she gives us are for practice and don’t need to be done, at all, but we still have worksheets for homework. What am I going to use the solutions manual for? Damn it.

Tomorrow is English again. We’ll see how that goes.

I headed down to the campus today to pick up books for the spring semester, which starts Tuesday. Two books for English, two for computer science, and two for math. I made sure to get the answer book again so I never have to care about math homework. This time it has even and odd answers. Finally. I’m hoping the teacher for math gives us all the homework at once like the last guy. Note cards would be nice too, but I am doubting it. I also will have two labs. One for math, again, and another for computer science. I’m guessing the compsci one won’t be too hard, but math is sure to be a pain in the ass. We’ll see in a few days I guess.

Today was take care of my car day, except that I didn’t do anything. My parents added some more cash to my Costco card so I went and got gas. Then it was off to Wal-Mart where they changed my oil and filled whatever needed to be. With that all said and done they told us that I need to have my tires replaced “ASAP” and I looked at my dad and said “told you.” Wonder how long I have to wait before that happens. I also need to find out where the fuck my custom plate is. I ordered it back in August or September. Three months my ass.

As for yesterday I spend the day playing Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga. Fun game, but tons of shit to unlock. Poor me. After an argument with my parents I went online and applied for a job at Lucky’s. I’m hoping it get it. I need cash and my parents don’t give a shit.

This coming week is the last week of break for me. I head back to school on the 22nd and don’t find out my grades for the previous semester until the day before which is stupid. The plan for next week is to get the books and stuff I need for my classes so I am ready for that dreadful first day back. Another sixteen weeks in hell.

Yesterday I took my final two finals for the semester. First was economics, which started an hour earlier. It was not fun by any means. I just finished it and left. Since I had enough time between the two I went home and did stuff online. Then I headed down to math for that final. Eight pages long and since I knew I would pass the class with even a 50% on the final I did what I could and then skipped three questions which I forgot how to do. Now I am out of school until Jan. 22nd. Hell yes.

When I got home I loaded up All-Pro Football 2K8 and created a new team which will be used in the ShackLeague which I am going to compete it. Should be fun owning others with the Sacramento Annihilators.

Today hopefully marked the end of that subplot I’ve hinted at a few times in the last few months. There was some heavy discussions to solve the problems and although some opinions may linger, most have been fixed. Both sides had their own support in terms of others to be by their side. Time will tell how well this situation defuses.

As for school Monday went by slowly at first but picked up when math came around. I mainly sent texts back and forth to Ashlee. Tuesday was the last long day of the semester. English wasn’t noteworthy at all, math was review crap, and career planning was talking. All the classes ended early so I had too much spare time during my breaks. Today was slow because of econ and the lingering situation. Math sped it up and ended early which was nice. Ashlee kept me company throughout the day. When I got home I prepared for the ultimatum talks to defuse the problem.

Tomorrow is the first day of finals, well the first of two. It will be the easiest of the two. English consists of just going down there at 11am tomorrow and talking with the teacher in her office for five to ten minutes. Yep, that’s it. Then I will be heading home as the counsel final is at 3:30pm where we have to write an essay. See, easy. Monday is the economics and math finals. I need to do as good as possible on the econ final and do the article assignments to pass the class with my current 72.5%. As for math, as long as I get a 50% on the final I will pass the class. I think I am in safe waters.

This morning between econ and math I signed up for next semester’s classes. 11 units total, 3.5 units under this semester, which is 1 unit below full-time. I’m hoping to have a job in the evening so I made sure every class was in the morning. Only one that isn’t is the next math class which ends at 2:45pm, but that is only on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Tuesdays and Thursdays only have the next English class, which ends at 11am. I am also taking Computer Science which is on the same days as math only before. Should be interesting.

Time to get back to my cool girl Ashlee. I expect a giggle.
