Bought an umbrella!
Saturday. 4.30.11 4:29 pm
I dunno why I'm so stoked to have an umbrella. Whatever!
I also bought a nice usb mouse for gaming on the PC. Looking forward to having that! Eventually I'm looking into buying an ethernet adapter for my Wii (the wireless on campus doesn't support it) and maybe a lapdesk for the laptop.
I got promoted at my job for apparently no reason (and without my knowledge too!). So that means I'll be getting more money and working harder over the summer. It's still better than school. I am SO ready to get out of here. My English teacher thinks it's OK to have 3 (count 'em) projects going AT THE SAME TIME, during dead week. I...don't understand it.
Roommate has his girlfriend as a slave for a day because she lost a bet. Wish I could see what's going on. They've been out all day, and I've been in. Doing work. Or, at least, trying to.
I'm irritated because I feel like I've been cheated out of better grades than I'm getting in Calc 2. I study with a group of people, and I'm usually the one helping out the ones who are lost. And yet somehow I'm making Cs on the test and they're making As or high Bs. The mistakes I make can be explained away. Silly mistakes. It's very frustrating that I cannot get a single perfect test when I know the material so well. Add the calculus woes to my lackluster grades in Physics and English, and you get a very stressed out Techie. I am just...very ready to get it over with and get out of here. Ironically, right now my highest grades are in Econ. I only have to make a 70 on the final exam to make an A in the class. In Calc, on the other hand, I might not pull an A even if I get a 100 on the final. Depends on the curve.
Last semester I didn't really mind if I got Bs, but this semester I've really raised my standards. Maybe even to pre-highschool levels. It's like the opposite of senioritis, but I can't figure out why. Nobody else seems worried about making As. Maybe I have the wrong idea about how hard my school really is. My friend's physics class had a 49 test average, for example. Making straight As is considered God-like...so honestly making a 3.0 here isn't all that bad.
I just really can't settle for it, though. Not when so many people I know, and consider my intellectual equals, are making 4s, or at least 3.5.
Maybe you just need a rest... if your brain is tired, it would explain the little mistakes you keep making in Calc. :/

I agree with RJ. Sometimes you just need to get out there and do something non-academic related and forget about everything. I find ways to isolate myself whenever I feel like my family is suffocating me, often results in bouts of not coming home till late.

Somehow I doubt that. After 7+ years of tricks I don't trust him.

School is so frustrating. It frustrates me more than anything in my life right now...which I guess is a good thing. But sometimes I have to remember that it's not EVERYTHING, and that a little mess-up isn't really going to matter in the long run. But, I know what you mean about personal standards. It's still aggravating.

haha, yeah, the funny part was that I got the news story (with the copyright) in a mass email. Hahaha.

Re: What about the unwilling, such as myself? Is it fair that I don't have the mental capacity to accept the Christian God?

I guess you could look at people who commit suicide as simply electing to exercise their "right to choose". "Get the government out of my body!" "This decision should be between me and my doctor [Kevorkian]." That wouldn't necessarily be a failure on the parent's part.

I really don't. I have the capacity to believe in A god. But not this one.

Re: its okay. No one seems to. I just barely do.
