Uuugh, tough day! It started out as an A+, had an easy time with some things I had to take care of. But it got sent down to a C when I discovered a big hole in the drywall of one of my house’s bathrooms I never noticed before! It’s gonna be a pain in the ass to get fixed. Ah, well…
Went out to Little Lamb and read the next chappy of Send My Regards to Kenshiro. Not much of a humor chapter, though it’s funny when our hero makes a big deal out of being a 40 year old virgin, but while servicing a female client (platonically, of course, just massage), he learns that his mother wants his hated stepfather to die of “natural causes.” I wonder why?
Aside from that, knocked off Lab 3 for COM 447, VERY nice day! Easy A+.
Nother A+ day! Went to class, had some Santora’s, and read the next chapter of Send My Regards to Kenshiro. The history between the protag’s mother and his stepfather is shown in a little more depth, and it actually makes her a LOT more sympathetic, she abandoned the protag because she needed money but didn’t want the yakuza guy to hurt him, and wants to kill the yakuza with her own hands, which is why she didn’t let him die of cancer. Oof…not much humor but surprisingly poignant from this manga.
After that, I watched the Total War Warhammer III trailer for Cathay, I’ve been waiting ages for it. Pretty cool:
Also enjoyed Gavin Newsom wrecking that recall thing in California, waste of money’s a shame but Repubs getting hosed is always a good time.
Finally, managed to get 25% done with my project 2 (blue) for Com 447! It’s a HUUUUGE pain in the ass, bigger than I thought it’d be, but whatever. A little harder than I expected but if I can get it out of the way I will be MASSIVELY ahead of the game.
A- day. I had a pretty good day at work but made a handful of small mistakes, but no big ones, thankfully. Then I finished off workshop 3, just gotta hand it in!
Read next chap of Kaiju no. 8, this was a good one with a lot of action, though it’s a flashback to Kikoru’s mother, who was a heroine in her own right. Also went out to Santora’s and aced my first COM 360 quiz! Nice. A+ day.
Solid A day. Made a couple mistakes at my position, but fewer than Wednesday, so that’s an improvement. Then I handed in my workshops 1 and 3, hooray.
Day evened out to a B. This time I made a couple big mistakes, but the folks where I was went easy on me cause they could tell I was busier than normal and sort of overwhelmed. Also, I managed to keep from doing too much damage on my second mistake thanks to a really awesome, bizarre stroke of luck, so that definitely cheered me up. So yeah, what could have been a F day turned to a B. But aside from that I was too tired and I’m gonna straight hit the sack after posting this.
THINGS I HAD TO FINISH THIS WEEK:
COM 447 lab 3 – DONE
COM 449 W3 – DONE
COM 360 quiz 1 – DONE
THINGS I HAVE TO DO NEXT WEEK
Same fuckin’ shit. I wasn’t able to this week, but I really want to get my second COM 447 project out of the way next week, would make things hella easier on me.
Started Little Heaven by Nick Cutter on Saturday, I’ll finish it up later this week.
What I said above.
Just class work. Haven’t had time to get a bit done on my other projects, which is pretty disappointing, but oh well.
BUCKET LIST PROGRESS
1: Read the end of Girl Genius. At least I got to see Lucrezia kicked out of Agatha’s mind, so that’s something.
2: Play Front Mission 5.
3: Play Brigandine: Grand Edition. I think I’ll work on these emulation related things when I get a new computer–a new deskie, I mean.
4: Finish up a second big project…
5: Maybe finish up a 3rd big project related to Berserk.
6: Finish a FOURTH big project I’ve had thoughts about for a while. Won’t say much more about it other than it involves Visual Novels.
7: *maybe* finish up a fic I’ve always wanted to put out. But this is really extra.
8: Maybe do something with Wayward Son I’ve wanted to do for a while, but also extra.
9: Obviously, get all my affairs in order–will, etc.
Urgh…work is really pressing on me hard. Next week is gonna be tough as well, but just gotta get through it.
