So because I have been lacking in updating for the fine month of December, I will recap, attempting to be witty, or at least put forth some effort in an advent-y way, at least until Christmas. For those of you unaware, there is this whole Christmas thing which usually involves chocolate, candy, flipping things over etc. to count down the days until Christmas, beginning on December 1st. So I shall attempt to do that, from now, until Christmas, as in “December 1st, 25 days Till Christmas- 1 week of school left”. We shall see how well this works. This means I also have to recap, so here we go. The sill dorky thing is in this font, and the summary of the day is all… normal shaped.
Friday, December 1st, 24 days Till Christmas- One Week of School Left.
This day was a Friday, and according to my planner, nothing exciting happened in school. That evening, Alex, Sarah and Daniel came over and we watched Suicide Kings, drank way too much caffeine (Daniel and I did at least), I chatted with Daniel, probably scarred Alex irreparably and then broke out Adventures in Babysitting. It was a fun night all around, with much giggling and enjoyment of our last free Friday before the doom of finals set in. Next year I have made a not to go to the hanging of the Greens, apparently it was pretty.
Saturday, December 2nd, 23 days until Christmas- Two Math Practice Finals.
Studied way, way, way, too much with Dad, this day only being the entire Trig practice final and about half of the PreCalc practice final. This is all I remember from this day. If I did anything else, it is a mystery to me.
Sunday, December 3rd, 22 days until Christmas- Three hours of FFX-2.
Finished studying with father, with little bloodshed, and rewarded myself with three hours of FFX-2, which was fun and kinda exciting. My second play through and I got up to 98% before the final boss. I can’t think of anything else to do, so I ran around for a bit and just leveled up and learned things for my dresspheres. I really can’t understand how males can play that game and not be slightly creeped out. They change clothes for God’s sake. Oh well it was fun and a good way to detox from all the math. Went back to the school shaped place and watched Mononoke-Hime with Alex and Sarah. Fun and created something for my to-do list. Good news is I have figured out a few Christmas presents.
Monday, December 4th, 21 days until Christmas- Four hours of lecture.
This was my last day where everything was lecture, and I had all my classes. Trig was bright and early and very review shaped, as were all my other classes now that I think about it. This day was also when we began to work hard on our ME project. It was a nightmare, as there are only two comp pods on campus that support ProE, DSH and The ESCape Pod. Guess where every single student went after we were kicked out of DSH by the crazy people testing on Powerpoint… POWERPOINT!!! We actually cheated and went to the computers just outside the DSH classroom, tying three of them up for a few hours.
Tuesday, December 5th, 20 days until Christmas- Five paragraphs about a fake Flashlight.
Yes, a fake flashlight. One of our group members for ME dropped out of college, leaving me to panic type up five paragraphs about our imaginary flashlight that we were designing. There was a lot of ME this day, much of which included being kicked out of DSH and wandering and luckily getting computers in the ESCape pod. I walked from the escape pod to my dorm, at 7 o’clock at night, by myself, in the dark. I realized this might have been a bad plan about ten feet from Alverado. Then I naturally ran into both Paul and Tyler, both of which are ME group members, at Lapo. It’s a small world. This day was bad but not as bad as the next day.
Wednesday, December 6th, 19 days until Christmas- Six awake hours not with Tyler.
This Day was a nightmare. I woke up, went to trig, worked in the ESCape Pod until Chem, went to Chem (3 hours w/out Tyler), Took a test in ME (Tyler count, 1 hour), went to PreCalc… with Tyler (With Tyler-2, without-3.5), went to lunch with Dusty (about 4 hours w/out Tyler), went to ESCape Pod and spent the next 7.5 hours, with Tyler, working on Project (With Tyler- 9.5, without 4), Retrieved by Sarah and Alex who came and saved me from Engineering land, spent the next hour-ish being fed and watching CSI, then crawled into bed. End of the day count. Time with Tyler 9.5, time w/out him, 6. We bonded… And didn’t kill each other, GO US!\
Thursday, December 7th, 18 days until Christmas- Seven Completely Random Hugs.
Project was handed in and we all took the biggest sigh of relief you can possibly imagine. Then came this sense of euphoria that hung around the rest of the day. Did a powerpoint on FFX and managed drain the batteries of the laptop. Sorry once again darling, nothing personal. Random hugging ensued as my personal bubble disappeared because I was far too happy. Tyler and I took a Detox period of 24 hours, naturally running into each other at Lapo, but that is okay as it was through glass, so I don’t count it. That night I took a break and was slightly creative. We’ll see how far this goes. Then, that night I stayed up until midnight so I could register for the next semester. Apparently 5000 freshmen all signing onto lobo web simultaneously killed it and It was very very dead. There were many windows of whining open as we complained about how it wasn’t working. I gave up and went to bed at 1 in the morning.
Friday, December 8th, 17 days until Christmas- Eight problems per test of PreCalc.
Last day of classes, but there were only two, Chem and Trig. Went to Chinese Buffet with Sarah for lunch. Then went back to my room and studied. Then was drug out for food. Sarah and I saw a helicopter take off. It was very exciting. Later a Sarah and an Alex invaded my room (well I invited them in) and we studied and Alex redid my lights around the room. We had CSI in the background. It was quite lovely. Alex and I slipped into Math speak and Sarah rolled her eyes and muttered in German as we discussed Asymptotes and Zeros, in math babble. We found Tyler’s room to give him my notes and then I went to bed.
Saturday, December 9th, 16 Days until Christmas- Nine people I know seen.
So I was jolted out of REM sleep at 7, woke up at 8, and lazed around until 9, when I stumbled out of bed to answer my phone. Dusty came up and we went to Math Finals at about 9:40 ish. It was cloudy and icky outside. Upon entering the classroom I sat down in a random desk and realized that I had managed to sit next to Tyler. I am subconsciously aware of him. This is not a good sign. We took our PreCalc final and we both handed ours in within seconds of each other (meanwhile Nyssa’s internal warning bells are screaming at me). I felt confident in it. We then lurked out in the hall, discussing problems on the Final. We were joined by Dusty. I then saw Kate, who I have not seen in over a year. It was very exciting. Then we talk for a sec to some guy Tyler knows (doesn’t count in tally, tally currently 3). Then Paul came over and the tally is now up to 4. Dusty and I left and it was Bright and Sunny, must be a sign. Then Dusty and I met Sarah and Cait out in the Quad. Then I went home and took a break from math and studied Chem. In total I ran into 9 people I know. It was nice.
Sunday, December 10th, 15 Days until Christmas- Ten Pages of Pretests.
This day was a study day, nothing happened except for a bout of nausea when I got back to the dorms. This was my day and it was very very tiring. I also learned some very upsetting news. Adventures in Babysitting and Square Enix share something in common. Nice college guy voices Sephiroth and Nooj…. I shudder. If you could see me, I would be a shuddering mess.
Monday, December 11th, 14 days until Christmas- Eleven Hours of freedom!
I took my last to finals and was FREE! I finished my Trig Final at 2 and declared my freedom, even though I would not get off campus for another hour and a half. I then spent the next several hours goofing off, helping linds beat FFX2 and watching Grey’s Anatomy and Joan of Arcadia. I crawled into bed at 1 in the morning and passed out.
Tuesday, December 12th, 13 days until Christmas- Twelve episoded of CSI.
I didn’t watch 12 hours of CSI, but I watched several, eventually getting to twelve hours of CSI being fast forwarded thru or watched. I also went to the dentist and watched some Back to the Future. It was very exciting. I watched many hours of CSI though, several of which I have never seen before it was very exciting.
Wednesday, December 13th, 12 days until Christmas- Thirteen days remembered.
So that brings us to today. I went to school to get my test, only managing to grab PreCalc. I got a 95% on the Final and an A in the Class. I danced a victory dance. Dad and I went to the Fountain, and it was very good and pretty. Still a bit fuzzy on some parts but that’s okay. I liked it. Then I went home and baked a cake (twice having messed up the first time) and helped Linds study for French. I remember a lot of French it turns out. I watched some CSI and went to Mr. Tokyo for Dinner with Alex and Sarah. It was fun. I am now home typing this up and plan to go finish CSI.
That’s all I got for today. Let’s see if I can continue this until Christmas huh?
