WORKIN:

Monday: Went to classes and got a bit of studying done, though not as much as I woulda liked…I got distracted by some stuff. On the other hand, my editor got back to me with the changes he wants me to make to my draft, so I started work on those.

Tuesday: YES! Very good day! Attending the review session REEEEALY helped studying for the upcoming math test, and best of all, I managed to knock out my upcoming Geology test! It was all online, so it was automatically graded, and I got a 90%! A-, not bad at all. So yeah, VERY nice!

Wednesday: Very nice day! Got a good bit of studying for the math test done and hung out with some friends 😀

Thursday:  Urgh…ambivalent day.

I took my math test, and…I think I did really well! I might have made some mistakes here and there, but overall I at least had an idea

So, why am I ambivalent?

Well, I’m gettin my ass kicked in Bio…I got a C- on the test and am not doing so well on the lab. This is disappointing, as you’ll recall, I thought I did very well on the test. Uuurgh…some parts of it struck me as pretty unfair, but there’s no point going back for a regrade, as most of the class did even worse. Now, that means I may get a nice curve, but still…if I thought I did well but ended up bombing, that doesn’t bode well for a different test I thought I aced, does it? 😦

Friday: Great day! I had my first Compsci test in the morning. I don’t think I did as well as I could have…probably got anywhere from an A- to a B-. An A- if the only problem I got wrong was the one about computer generations (I looked it up and know I got it wrong), a B- if I got the programming questions wrong as well. After that I just chilled at home.

Saturday: Fun fun! I went to my nearby favorite gun place to take a shotgun course…pretty tough! The recoil, even with the lower-recoil slugs they gave me, was pretty tough, but I got the hang of it after a while. My accuracy wasn’t the best, but they gave me a pump action shotgun (Remington 870 12-gauge) and I hadn’t used those very much before, so pumping the weapon always threw off my aim, I should work on that. I also had trouble reloading it–you have to manually put each shell into the magazine tube (mine could hold a max of 4) rather than load one magazine with 10 rounds and put it into the weapon, as I did with the AR-15. I fumbled around a bit, though I never dropped a shell. Still, it took more time than reloading a magazine. Ah, well, no biggie, they knew I was a beginner, and it’s not like there’s any shortage of time to practice. After that I did more work on the edits my editor sent me 😀

Sunday: Went out to eat and got some gas and a haircut, then went home to just listen to music and relax. With midterms done, things should calm down a little bit…

Things I Gotta Finish This Week

1: Study for Math Exam on Thursday – DONE!

2: Study for Compsci Exam on Friday – DONE!

3: Attend a training course at 7 AM on Saturday – DONE!

4: Finish Geology Exam 2 before the end of next Tuesday – DONE!

Things to Do Next Week:

Study for the next Bio lab quiz

Work out a little more!

Maybe get the next and final batch of geology exams done

Keep working on the edits I was given for my big project

Miscellaneous Goals:

Nothin’ this week.

FUN STUFF:

EATAN:

 

TIMAN:

Nothing this week, though I did sent the stuff for ep. 40 to Star 😀

WATCHAN:
