A month and a half later and I am now 5/8 of the way through my undergraduate degree, have had to make emergency plans for next semester, wrote 50000 thousand words, cried in public, changed, evolved and did something I never thought was possible. And went to church. Surprising? Hell yeah.

Okay… I finished Nanowrimo. Did my 50000 words. Had a neat spreadsheet too. I actually finished early this year. But I finished. And haven’t touched it since.

I also read Twilight. Also surprising. Totally met my expectations: Shallow, mutilation of the vampire mythos, ruining the expectations of preteen fangirls who think abusive control freak boyfriends are attractive. And then I saw the movie… AND IT WAS AWESOME!... okay the awesomeness revolved around how the actors seemed to know exactly how creepy the original characters were. And Jasper made me giggle with his seemingly constant mantra of “food… food… food over there… food over here… food… food… OMG THE FOOD IS TOUCHING ME WHAT DO I DO?”

I also got back into good old Final Fantasy XII. I played a ton of Final Fantasy XII: RW… yeah… that was dumb as I played instead of studying on occasion but **shrugs** I enjoyed it. I am still playing because I am sadly like 8 levels below a boss and I have fought everything to level up so now it is pointlessly fighting repeatedly until I win. Not fun but I learn something new every time. But I also restarted Final Fantasy XII. I am like 1/3 of the way through the plot. Which means I am like 1/15 of the way through everything… I also got Ninja Storm. Holy lord I love that game. Need to get 100% completion though… need.

School wise…

Thermodynamics: So that test in October, I got a 69, with the average at 65ish. My final test in thermo I totally screwed up. Like… we are talking 48 kind of score. It was bad. Very bad. But I took the final. And I got the high of the four of us who took it. And I got an 82 (which beat my highest score by a lot!) and so he gave me a B. He said he would give me a B- if I got a 70 and a B if I got a 86. So apparently I stunned him and he gave me a B. Like I was so excited! There was shouting and I almost swore very badly in front of my parents.

Econ: A+. Pretty good considering I did nothing in that class. Except read books. And do homework for other classes.

Fluid Mechanics: So I got the average on the second test but on the last test I got a 92! I put it on the fridge I was so proud of it. And I have never put anything on the fridge. I ended up not taking the final and getting a B in the class, which I am very proud of.

Linear Algebra: Got an A. But oh lord my Final. So it was on Tuesday, and it snowed like 3 inches the night before. So they had a two hour delay. We got an email saying that it was cancelled. So Dan, Fernando and I ran off and played in the snow. Then we got an email saying that the final had been moved to three. After THREE emails saying it was cancelled. We were hella pissed.

Mechanics of Materials: I got a B+… and after that final I was like OH THANK GOD! Because that final made me go “oh shit” a few times. It was upsetting.

Other than that I am all registered for next semester, but ME314 might be cancelled because UNM isn’t giving anyone money. Which sucks a lot because it screws some of us over. So… emergency plans have been made. Hope they will not be put into effect.

Other parts of life:

The last month and a half has been incredibly stressful. To the point where I acted like a girl and cried. And was horribly depressed. And felt trapped, tied down, alone and hysterical. Hopefully that will clear up because… while I will survive it, I am not sure if I want to do that again.

Other than that, I have read many books. I am stumbling through Brisingr right now. And all I care about it Morzan, who has sadly been dead for nearly 17 years story wise. So … I am craving a dead character who is mentioned about once every 100 pages. Pathetic I know but... can’t help it.

But that is my life, what I have been doing. How everything is going. How I have recovered from the worst semester so far in college, that nearly crippled me.
 

And so, in a cliché look to the future, I hope everyone (including myself) has a Merry Christmas. I will probably post an entry at midnight repeating that… and one tomorrow. But Merry Christmas Everyone. And to all your families as well. Enjoy it.

So i am going to a release party tonight. I am way excited.
Today i did absolutely nothing except read. I read and finished Blue Moon. And then i started on Obsidian Butterfly. And now i am basking in the victory after beating Yaizmat! I also got a haircut.
Lindsay has returned. I got to tell her Yuka is coming. I am sooo happy. She told me many wonderful tales of Denver. There was a shooting on their first day and she got to see a taser that day as well. Ah the city!
I don't know if i am going to make it through the night... but i am way excited...

So i woke up this morning to a phone call. I was thinking "great, the parents calling to make sure i got up" so i stumbled out of bed, got to the phone and did the most charming "i've been awake for hours" hello i have ever done. I was greeted with a heavily accented stumbled question about if my parents were there. I said they weren't and the voice continued and said "This is Yuka ****" And i practically shrieked with glee. For those of you unawares, Yuka is my Japanese cousin... or something similar. And she is hopefully coming to visit in two weeks. I am exstatic. She is sooo sweet. I love her to death!... And my day just kept getting better. My amazon stuff shipped, math was easy, I almost beat Yaizmat but decided to wait for my sister. today is a good day!1!

So i have 16 more minutes of being 18. I am sooooo excited. Anyway today i took a quiz, which i am not to sure about but it doesn't matter as he drops two quizzes anyway. I have a test on thursday and i hope to steal a dusty tomorrow to do... something. We shall see how this all works out. I no longer have holes in my wall, and now simply have oddly shaped things of white spackle. But that means we get to paint on our birthday, so we are not going to complain. We played zone games today and tried some FFXII before we decided it wasn't fun and gave up. We shall see if we wish to do more later. I also spent far too much time on youtube today and Holly is the cutest thing ever...

Today i hung out with people and went to El Pinto and ate much food. My rage is gone and now i stare blankly at the screen and wonder about things, like life, the universe and everything, tomorrow. well we shall see. We are discussing going to the movies tomorrow... considering i haven't been since january, i think it is a good plan. Also my sister is about to be confined to quarters since she is getting he wisdom teeth removed. All around goal wise, today was pretty useless.... Yaizmat sucks...

But I'm over that rage thanks to Tidah, a funny thought and an image. I love Tidah. Mayhaps the rant will return tomorrow for tonight we lack the energy to complete it fully. We shall see.
Dinner almost killed me. We were going to eat this one thing but I guess we had two of them, only one of them was old and we didn't realize it. So the carrots were not orange. I could have died.  We got the food all sorted out but the bananas tasted funny, as did the oranges. If I die in the next 24 hours, you all know why.
On a Final Fantasy XII note, I have gotten another Sky Pirates Den thing and now only have three more I think. I have also begun to fight Yaizmat. It is kinda boring. I mean if you do the gambits right the characters fight on their own unless you need to pull an intervention. so you just watch and sit there. But the good news is I only have 30 more health bars... YAY!
Tomorrow I have my first Calc II exam. I'm not to worried as I have a 62 out of 60 so far so I even have two points to screw up with. I like how the class is graded and the teacher seems pretty calm. So I'm not to worried. We shall see how this all goes.
Well I am off to read and load music to my mp3 player.

So i'm playing FFXII. I'm doing all that extra stuff. I've already beaten the game and i am about ... 15 levels above the final boss. So now i'm just goofing off, leveling up, trying to complete as many sidequests as i can, things like that. I'm doing the second to last hunt in the game "The Seer" and it is sooo irritating. You have to collect these shiny black orbs but they only appear like every 3 monsters. And you need over 150 of them. So that means you end up killing about 450 monsters, if you are perfect and don't miss a single one, dodge all the monsters outside the areas and the game actually drops the orbs that frequently. It usually doesn't. So i run around and arround. The good news is that i am down to the last 30 or so orbs. And then i get to fight this monster and it's flunkies, walk away and never ever look back. We are very happy. Then all i have left is like the fishing minigame (yes fishing... ) although i might skip that one. and Yaizmat... who is going to be hellllllll. But whatevers. We shall see how well that progresses. I read Anita Blake today. I did not finish a book but i think i might be able to tomorrow because well... i need a goal. I also cleaned a whole hell of alot today. Sarah and i also sorta talked about rearanging my room. I'm not sure as i have a non-Square/rectangular room but we shall see how this works out as well. Lindz wants me to get started on Okami. I want to but i kinda want to get FFXII out of my system first. I'm very... obsessive so... It's best to get rid of one before starting another.
