A+ day! Mainly relaxed and finally got my COM 449 project outta the way! Well, almost, I just gotta hand it in.
C- day taken up to an A- day by the end. Made a bit of a screwup at a function I was at but the folks there were understanding and covered for me–man, lucky again. So after that stroke of luck I went home and finished off Lab 5 for 447, which was a nice lil accomplishment and made up for the poor day.
A+ day! Got the next quarter of my second COM 447 assignment done, just one more to go!
A- day. Didnt get much work done but did just relax for a while.
Read the next chap of Kaiju no. 8. More fighting, and Kikoru and #9 almost kill each other, but when Kikoru is on the ropes Kafka manages to transform, finally–it turns out he couldnt transform because he was afraid of losing control again, not because of interference from 9. Next chappy comes out on the 15th of october…
Also read the next chap of Send My Regards to Kenshiro. Our protag and his mom both swear to kill the protag’s stepdad, but he blows himself up by throwing a cigarette onto a live wire in his hospital room. Lol
Aside from that, blasted through the next com 360 quiz 😀 Very nice, very nice!
A+day. Just about managed to finish my COM 447 assignment 2, and I did have a great German meal at the Creekview restaurant after ages. I’ll hand it and my COM 449 thing on Sunday.
Solid A day. Had a good day at my responsibility, which was my last day. Maybe I’ll describe it later. After that, just relaxed at home.

Another thing I might have to take care of…
The Hunger by Alma Katsu. This is a fictionalized account of the Donner Party tragedy of the 1840s US, where a caravan traveling to California got trapped in the mountains and eventually resorted to cannibalism. The story was relatively true to the names of the people involved but with a couple of inventions, most especially the addition of a malevolent supernatural force hunting the ill-fated party.
Overall, I really enjoyed it, but I can see why other Amazon reviewers were negative. I think Katsu did a great job of slowly unveiling the horror as she went on, starting with the characters noticing suspicious things about the land they were traveling, an absolute horror suddenly striking, and then more reveals of the horrific force plaguing them as they continued on, spiced up with background about it from the letters of another character. The characters themselves were well drawn (though I don’t want to give away too much about any of them due to spoilers) and all of them dealing with their own personal demons and shady pasts provided another layer of drama to the story. However, like other reviewers have noted, the “reveal” about the supernatural antagonist was confusing and weird, I don’t think the authoress thought it through as well as she should have. But even so, I had enough fun with this story to give it 4 stars and I’m happy I bought it.
What I said above.
Just class work, not much else :<
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.
3rd of the semester done…Like I mentioned in my to do list next week, I wanna start getting into the stock market, I’ll ask around for some advice.
