Sigh…

It is seeming less and less likely that I will be able to get an A in Calculus. I know the majority of everything on the tests, but what I don’t know always seems to be worth a lot more grade-wise than what I do know. For example, on the test I took today, I knew all of it except for the last problem. The last problem was worth 20% of the grade. So, I guess I got a B on it. I can still make an A, but I don’t know if I can pull it off. I’m think I’ll make a B+ or a B in that class. My other classes should be A’s. Finals are the 16th of December. Ivan has made this schedule much more difficult than I was expecting.
I slept for 8 hours last night, which I rarely do. I don’t know what to think about it: Sleeping healthfully. I mean, I feel very awake and aware in the morning, but there is a cost. If I sleep a full 8 hours, I dream. And when I dream, I always dream about… a certain thing, and then I spend the next few weeks thinking about that certain thing. The thing is not perverted or anything like that. It just hurts to think about, and I don’t usually think about it unless I dream. Kim knows what I’m talking about, and I might tell you the dream if you ask about it, but I’m not going to talk about it here. I guess I just need to continue with my bad, unhealthy sleeping schedule.
I received a schedule booklet in the mail yesterday for spring term. I’ve created a tentative schedule, but I won’t be able to sign up for classes until the 30th. I gave up on taking Classical Mythology. The course never falls on a convenient time for my work schedule. In its place, I am going to take Humanities in the Ancient World. It follows my typical theme: Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, Middle Ages. Seems that all of my Non-Math/Science/Computer courses are focused on that time period. This class will be a little more difficult that Mythology, but I think I’ll be fine.
I am currently alpha testing Trillian Pro 3. It works pretty well, but it crashes from time to time like a good alpha should.
Life… what can I say…
Well, I gave myself a little more work. Sister and I are going to do an instrumental/singing for Christmas at church. And yeah… looks like I’m in charge… it was my idea, after all. I’m sure that will go well.
College… erm… I love programming. I just do. It’s what I do, it’s what I am meant to do. Math… well, I’m getting a little burned out, I think. I like math and had been planning on minoring in mathematics, but I think that Ivan has made learning these new concepts very stressful for me. Now, a B+ in Calculus is very good! But I’m a 4.0 student, and I’d prefer to stay that way!
One lane traffic! I cannot stand it! I hit one lane traffic four times today on my way home from afternoon class! Not only that, but there is a lot more traffic here, because the out-of-state workers fill the roads too. Gas stations run out of gasoline because each station is only allow to have so much per day and the truckers get first dibs. Tom (my boss) says that many of these workers will end up not leaving at all, and Pensacola will have a population boost, post-Ivan. Grrrr… stupid infrastructure.
Okay… that “girl” side of life… Erm… that side is rather nonexistent. Umm… I was going to ask out this one girl in one of my classes, but I ended up changing my mind last minute. And yeah, I had a reason. Actually, I wouldn’t place any bets here, if I were you. If I do ever get back into “the swing of things”, it is going to be a while.
Fiber optic cable has replaced our old phone lines out here on the edge of the world (where I live). Unfortunately, they are voice-only (still no high speed Internet on the edge of the world), but that does mean that my V.92 modem works now. My connection speed is much faster… in terms of dialup…
/my jumps back into his hole…
