LAB EXAM 4:
Monday: Not too bad, not too bad at all. Did pretty good on my math quiz, I’d say, though we’ll have to see…
Tuesday: God bless days off. Studied some more math, went out to my beloved Creekview Restaurant, and then went out for some friends. Relaxed by playing some Faster than Light too.
Wednesday: Wednesdays are tough. In this case, REALLY tough.
First, academics: I did *okay on Monday’s math quiz, like I said, but I did get a couple points off for dumb mistakes, again I gotta be careful about those, though in this case it was a lack of understanding. In much worse news, I got absolutely hosed on today’s quiz! I REALLY gotta kick it up a notch to get ready for the test next Wednesday…
But disrupting that would be…well, there’s been a death in the family. Not my parents, but a family friend who was essentially one of us. I don’t want to say much more of it except that it was peaceful and expected, thank God. But even so, it’s still keeping us down quite a bit. Expect more sedate entries for a little while, friends.
Thursday: For the first time in my life, went to a math tutoring service. It was a little help on the homework, but not that much. Better than nothing, though. Starting tomorrow it’s hardcore studying for my upcoming math test…
Friday: No math, as usual, just compsci lecture and lab. Those went well enough. I don’t think I’ll get much studying done over the weekend, busy with issues. Whatever, I’ll just cram like the dickens on Monday and Tuesday.
Saturday: Well, things went better than expected. Everyone’s holding up better than I thought–again, I won’t go into any specifics, but my family and friends are staying strong, that’s the important thing. So I managed to get some math studying in after all. Gotta push it to the limit and make the most of what I can while I can, grief is important and understandable, but everyone would be irritated if I let it mess up what I’m trying to accomplish.
Sunday: Just studied math, that was about it.
Things I Had To Finish This Week:
Aside from homework and studying, I also wanted to finally meet with some career counselors and such. Didn’t get much of a chance to do that, though…
Couldn’t get anything done on that front due to troubles. Next week, next week…hopefully.
Things to Do Next Week:
Take that math test…
Not much this week, aside from studying math. I guess that’s it–argh, these derivatives are killin’ me! Despite my strong showing last semester, it may be that this is my limit when it comes to math…
Still nothing, just waiting on my editor and publisher. Aside from very minor things, my project is pretty much done, so I think we’ll be able to move on to the publishing side of things very soon!
So, it was a tough week due to personal happenings, but I managed to get through it. Hopefully next week, the fifth of my second semester of my second attempt at college, will go a little easier…
