Getter’ done!

Well I passed all my classes. This is truly a good thing because now my schedule doesn’t have to be screwed up for next semester. I went to turn in my change of college registration today. Unfortunately the site I saw said June 1st, but their site says May 1st. It’s really easy now to see the difference. However when the only site that shows up when you search is the first one, it is kind of hard to imagine anything else. It’s not a big deal however because none of my class are affected. I don’t need to be a CLA student to take any of them. Come spring time it will be important so let’s hope CLA accepts me. I will be applying to Carlson for the minor come spring too. Hopefully that will be as easy as accepted and granted.

Today is a great day. I have built my first ever hardcore task list. At this moment I am in the process of completing 7 of 24 steps. (There are bonus tasks that need not be done, but do give extra points.) See, I am developing a point system to try and get me to get everything done. I hope to put it up here so I don’t have to be on this computer to have that and also so that everyone else can use it. On that note, I am going to be changing the way dates are done around here. This is to better serve the population that was born before 1969.

Now for some LP, it’s been a long time coming

Significant other annoying the crap out of you?

I like it when smokers try not to litter.

I’d crap my pants.

The fun don’t stop

Hi everybody!

Hi Dr. Nick!

The fun just doesn’t stop come summer time. Nope, working for JRCA now (there is irony within that.) It’s a lot to take in all at once. No formal education and then to learn something that 3 people with 4 years of CompSci education have been nursing along and creating organically in couple of days is quite the challenge. It’s gonna take a while before I actually can create something from scratch, but for now I’m proud to be the Quality Assurance Director. Self chosen name. I think it speaks to what I do. I improve the quality of the source code and I’m trying to improve the quality of our services and our image. Not that they are bad or anything. No, my god what they have done. It’s really amazing and the guys are all very dedicated. It’s an honor to be surrounded by people who know what they are doing and care about it so much. I’m trying to bring in some of the business side "experience" and intuition that I have. It’ll be fun and I just hope I pull my worth.

Going to see star wars tonight. Yea! I get to watch the most immature teenage actor I have ever seen become the all powerful Lord Vader. It’s just not right, it should have been me. The transportation situation could prove a little annoying for some. I apologize for not having a car of my own; I’m working on it.

In a few seconds I will be making some barbecued porkchops covered with canadian bacon. I think it will taste good. Having no recipe I just go with the flow and hope I don’t poison whoever eats it. I like cooking. I have like 4 recipes in my repertoire now that I have kind of formulated on my own. It’s pretty sweet.

Elizabeth has been bringing me food so far this week form her work. It’s really good and it’s been nice to see her after work every day and eat with her. That’s why I feel I should cook tonight.

There must be a god

…because fate itself could not be so cruel.

That’s kinda harsh, but pure science means that things happen in an almost random sense. Like me missing my final that I thought was scheduled at 1:30 but in fact was at 8:00. It’s amazing, I blame it on the fact that all my other finals were at 1:30 and just subconsciously assumed. The more amazing part is that Elizabeth assumed hers was at 1:30 and it was at 10:30. That’s just weird. Luckily, her professor let her send in the essays they were going to do and all should be fine. After much depression I heard back from my professor and I get to take mine at 80%. Which, in all honesty, is still going to hurt. I should go on about how the easier the class is the worse I do, but I don’t feel like it.

So finals went poorly, made people hate me at SRA, my computer might have a virus (but it doesn’t look like it), I have to take a sunday final and couldn’t party with the others, I feel like I’ve lost my ability to be optimisitc, I think the childlike dreams that I had are almost completely ruined, I have to spend a sufficient amount of money in a few days for a lease, I’ve gotten sick in my head and my stomach, then got sick in my chest region (heart) and now I just don’t know anymore. Everything seems to go wrong at the same time (hence the opening line.)

I know I have the same problems as everyone else and that’s why I usually just ignore it and go on with life. I’m just being forced to evaluate the situation right now, so I am, but coming to the same inconclusive results.

All I know is chipotle can bring happiness to a sad tummy.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I–
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

The Onus

I was debating bringing back the onus and in what format. First off I should ask if anyone would like for me to bring it back. If yes, then what format would you like to see it in? Flash, 1 Panel Strips, the same old 4 panel or some other format if you have a recommendation.

The week has been very tiresome on my soul. Finals seem to just eat away at my very core and since I came to college I have done poorly on tests. It is a phenomenon that I can not describe. I hope to just make it through everything unscathed. I’ve decided to go for the BS in Economics and I will have a Biz minor. Not so far out of reach is an Art Minor too. It is within reach and I think I will go for it. One major and 2 minors shouldn’t be too bad.

Still looking for work. Though admittedly not hard enough in the past few weeks. Finals have put a stop to that, even though they really don’t take up that much time and are just a test. The sad part is I got sick last night. This will make my accounting final harder than it already was going to be. I’m going to get off to studying for that, no LP today maybe after my test Saturday or tomorrow.
