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.

I had my first guest lecture today. And it was done by my next door neighbor, which was awesome, though it did make me feel very old as his oldest is not a freshman in highschool. Which is scary. But it was a very neat lecture about composite materials and applications. Space, support and protection (from explosions). It was an awesome lecture. And my first guest lecture!
found a glitch in Wiley today and went to talk to truman about it which was way scary. I Don't like talking to professors all that much. But i did it.
Finished Altair's chronicles today. It was a short game and kinda frustrating at times. Assassin's creed never really got frustrating. But...>.> this game and it's traps. At least the enemies were easy.
Did alot of homework today, which is never yay. I don't think i will ever get PV diagrams. just so yah know. Or TV diagrams. Hopefully one day the light will turn on and i will be like "oh. okay" but i am not waiting with baited breath.

Happy Birthday Dusty! She who is 8 months older than me. Congrats. hope it was good.
Moving on to more egotistical matters, i am a dingbat, but at least i am not a total dingbat. The moment of inertia (J)= pi/2*c^4, not pi/4*c^4. i lost three points for that stupid mistake this morning. And i was like "hums... " even. But nopes, just kept going. But in the end i ended up with a 93% so i am not going to whine too much. I am pretty happy with it. And i finished my homework without dying. And i even finished Dusty's present. Sadly, i have not done anything else today...>.>
**sigh** kinda started doing Assassin's Creed Graphics. And Mom said we could swing by Target for Altair's Chronicles tomorrow on the way home, if i make it that far. I am already having trouble typing.... Sleep is calling... maybe i should listen.
I like the book i am reading. I actually stopped myself from finishing it so i have something to do in Econ tomorrow...>.> lol that sounds horrible. But it is kinda true. i have a feeling there will be a thermo quiz tomorrow..>.> groan.

Okay... two more days... and tomorrow i have to get up early to take a make up question... which sucks... i have set like four alarms... and i am going to bed early... I am tired. I hope he doesn't put a hard question on the makeup problem considering it will be 730 in the morning, and i, on average, wake up at 8:45... this is gunna suck.
I have homework due on friday too. And i don't think i am going to finish Dusty's present, so sorry Dusty, you are getting your present probably on friday. I am not sure yet exactly. Depends how long it takes things to burn and how long it takes to make your "guide" so... I am betting on friday. I bet i will finish tomorrow. sadly i will finish tomorrow after i see you, if i see you so... >.> sorry. Would rather get a good grade on my mechanics exam make up question. if that makes me a bad friend, bite me. **is snarly today**
Seriously snarly today. Don't know what is up with me... maybe some of that "fuck i just want school to be over right now" feeling. Mid semester burn out is not cool. But at least i can stop planning weeks in advance again, though for i may resume week after next because things return to multiple week planning. This week my life is "easy" cuz everything is like assigned two days before it is due...>.>
I kinda want to do fun things right now, which is bad considering i still have shit to do...>.> **groan of angst** this sucks.
I think i am going to go to bed now ish...or at least stop screwing around and get ready ish for bed.

So... that test didn't go well for anyone... So i got a 64... currently out of 68, which isn't too bad but... ouch. So i have to stumble to CE at 7:30 in the morning on thrusday for a makeup question. which sucks but what can you do? I am tired... I think i am experiencing mid semester burn out. Which isn't cool and i kinda want to get away from it all but sadly, i still have three and a half semesters left... **sigh** Somedays journal somedays.
in other news that is less angst tastic, found the model for altair... Holy freaking god i am torn between building shrines and gawking at the prowess of the digital animators. Cuz... omg!

versus
Not the best but... Since Altair runs around with his face mostly covered it is hard to show off using quickly found official art.

Okay that sucked but i think i did well on my exam. I just wish i had a minute to relax. But nopes, it's all go go go. Freaking exam. But it's over and i only have two left to do, unless there is a pop quiz... which there probably will be. hopefully in fluids because i am better at fluids.
But i spent alot of time in Zimm's basement today. The computers down there are super fast. And the screens are awesome. But i digress. I managed to finish my lab, though i kept having to check my freakin' numbers. But now that is done. And i have done like 1000 quizzes for Econ. And looked over my notes for the Fluids Quiz. We shall see how that goes. But one thing that sucks is that i got hwk in both Linear and Mechanics due on the 21st. Which sucks. but there are like 3 problems apeice so that isn't too bad.
Went to saggio's for lunch today with Fernando. YAY ORANGE CREAM SMOOTHIE! we also watched Soccer (sweet goals were made) and the Scrabble championships. I know words. i just can't spell.
OH I FORGOT! Yesterday i completed an entire crossword puzzle! AN ENTIRE CROSSWORD PUZZLE!
That is all. need to get some sleep.

Happy Birthday DFRPG. I swear i shall do something... dissidia shaped when i get around to it. Since we don't know anything about the game, i will make it up as i go. Interaction between heroes = win!
So today sucked about as much as i guessed it would. Got up for my freakin mechanics review and walked across campus in the dark. Which was not fun, just so you know. And then i sat through the review. i think i know how to do everying on the exam but we shall see. Then i spent an hour and a half doing my Linear Algebra. Then went to thermo. no pop quiz but hwk, naturally. Hour break during which i did my linear algebra some more. Thne Fluids. No pop quiz but i have hwk, naturally. Then Fernando (who is diseased) and I studied in Cent. for our exam. We got through alot. I just hope we both remember it tomorrow. Then i just spent all afternoon doing my Fluids Lab. I almost forgot to eat...>.> Bad plan all things considered. Only two more days.

My week SUCKS! ALL THREE DAYS OF IT!
Allow me to tell you how:
Monday, i have to get up at 6 am tomorrow to go to a 7 am review and spend until probably 11 tomorrow night working on homework. Freaking Linear Algebra homework is making my life like evil woah. I have thermo and Fluids due tomorrow and Fernando and I just spent a lot of time working on it tonight... >.>
Tuesday, assuming i survive tomorrow, i have A mechanics exam. Now.. mechanics isn't too deadly but exams suck. And then i get to spend the afternoon doing my fluids lab, which i will hopefully get mostly done tomorrow.
Wednesday, Econ exam, fluids test and fluids lab due. And probably a pop Quiz because Truman doesn't want us to feel neglected... **sigh**
I don't get to read this week. i didn't even bring a book to read. A book, not multiple books. no books... even though i have too many library books out...>.>
I need to go to bed. I have to get up in 6hrs

So i was right. Way to much freakin homework. Called dad in a panic. It was bad. I hate school. I hate life. Okay i lie but somedays are just suck tastic. I like sleeping. To bad i am not going to do much of it tonight.
Truman assigned way too much. Managed to finish Thermodynamics but Fluids is kicking my ass. Too much freaking homework and my room is a mess and good god it bugs the crap out of me. i may start twitching any moment now. It might be bad i warn ye.
Good news about today is that we got or Linear Algebra Exams back and i got a 95% on it. Which is way yay because that gives me a very good place to start and gives me a tiny bit of slack in for the next exam and the final exam.
In Mechanics we started on Shear and Bending Moment Diagrams, which we did in statics so i was like "OMG i know how to do this!" so now all i have to do is do remember how and get my homework done.
I have Fluids Lab tomorrow and all i really want to do is sit down and finish my book. I doubt it will be finished till weeks end though, which kinda sucks. I need to get more homework done tonight because my Dad's birthday is tomorrow and i have to get as much done as possible so i can celebrate his birthday with much rejoicing.
Which means i need to do my mechanics for a while until probably 1am ish... **sigh** i hate my days cuz i know that means i won't go to bed until like 1:30am and then i have to get up at 8:30 am and start all over agian....>.> Growl.

Today started off so dull that the exciting moment of the day nearly crushed my soul. Linear was boring. We didn't get our test back so i worked on my Thermodynamics homework (PS) which was to redo the test we took last friday. Once i figured out what to do (with a helpful prod from Jason) I was very much **headdesk** GAH NYSSA YOU IDIOT! kinda thing going on which makes me really sad. We will see how i do on the real exam. He sent us an Email about it. The average was a 43, with the high being a 67. So we all get a 23pt curve. not that it will save me much huh? Well we will see. I feel pretty good about one of my answers. We shall see tomorrow i guess.
CE? Don't remember what happened. I was helping Fernando with his Fluids Lab (And thus, learned how to do mine). I also figured out one of the Fluids WP problems. Then i was set free. During my break i finished my thermo PS and then i started to work on the Fluids Lab write up. i kinda went overboard but i don't think they minded too much. They both did the hard part so i just sat there and entered new shiny equations. 
then came teh exciting part of my day. I couldn't find my wallet. Lost! GONE! i freaked. Very subtly but i totally freaked. So i dashed back to my dorm (in the almost total darkness) and prayed to god that it was in my dorm room. Lucky for me it was next to my TV but i was freaked out. I did a round trip from Escape to dorm to escape in 20 minutes, which is virtually unheard of. Then we finished up our lab report (mostly, Need to get Theory and Conclusion to compile and print but that will happen sunday). and then i came back to dorm room. And haven't moved since. I have eaten like 1/2 a chocolate bar though. Lord Chocolate!
I finished my Fluids WP and then I did my Econ Homework (100% bitches!) and then Tidah showed me a site of fonts. Cue download of like 23 new fonts. Seriously i was like WTF. I tried to resist the other homework, chosing instead to do... anything else. Clean my room, arrange things. Failed and did my mechanics homework. As of right now without guess about thermo and fluids (because i sense WP), my only homework is Linear Algebra and that isn't due til Tuesday... SCORE!
I have to go present shopping for Daddy this weekend.... Oh deary. I have no idea what to get him. I should probably ask Linds. I am going home and playing video games. And the i am reading many books because i still ahve 20 checked out. lol. And three of them are due on Saturday. I doubt i will get all of them read but if i can get like 2 of them read or even just one, that means that next week, i have fewer books to read.

So i no longer want to cry alot. That problem that i went into semi catatonic shock over yesterday. Did it today in like 20 minutes. Feel pretty good about that. I just hope that i don't die tomorrow. Or that if i do, it is a merciful death. At this point, both are viable options... which is incredibly pathetic huh? I set up my CE problems for next week, which reminds me i got a 94% on my CE exam! yay go me. That means i can screw up slightly on one of the later tests without serious repercussions. And my Linear exam was easy peasy. Which makes me pretty happy because i will only have one afternoon to study for it, assuming but that point i haven't vanished into a black hole of self loathing. But i knew everything on the review so i doubt i will die.
Bunker 10 is freakin' weird. I can't tell if i like it or not. There are too many parallel and overlapping senarios that it is almost impossible to tell which story is real and which story i should rely on as the "reliable narator" because as of right now, there are several theories presented. And since i haven't had time to finish it i  have no idea what the answer really is. Which makes me sad so i will probably finish it tomorrow after the horrible test to make me feel better.

So i am a total retard. I totally had a mini meltdown on the first problem of me CE exam. I was like "What? I have... but how can i get sheer/normal/bending moments?...**cries**" and then i did the rest of the test and went back and went... **headdesk** NYSSA YOU IDIOT!... yeah... trusses are simple dummy. We shall see if i did it correctly soon i hope.
Fernando and Dan were dressed up nicely today. Fernando went all out Suit Stylin', where Dan chose to look comfy and semi formal. Very nice, thumbs up for both of them. Other than that, Linear Exam has been confirmed for next tuesday. So until next Tuesday at 10:45, i am going to be a bitch to be around. Sorry, but getting good grades is very important to me. It's even on my resolutions.
In related new, FINALS ARE GOING TO SUCK!
Tuesday, December 16th (Fernando's Birthday) - Linear Final Exam @ 7:30 am
Thursday, December 18th - Mechanics of Materials Final Exam @ 10 am
Friday, December 19th - Thermodynamics Final Exam @ 7:30 am
Friday, December 19th - Introduction to Macroeconomics Final Exam @ 10 am
Friday, December 19th - Fluid Mechanics Final Exam @ 12:30
Yes... three finals on the last day of finals. Two of them have been the reason for many drop outs and probably more than their fair share of ruined holidays and maybe a suicide attempt or two. I am going to die. Hopefully i can do well enough to save myself and get out of at least one of those finals.
V
I finished Valiant today. It was pretty good. Interesting, and very gritty and very... modern. The author is very in touch with current teenage subculture. Bravo for her.
The next book i think will be Bunker 10 because it looks like an easy read. might read it during my study breaks for my Thermo Exam.
I redid my moodtheme. [livejournal.com profile] xonlyashesx made a Battle Royale mood theme and i don't really like the boncing Suns. they are alright but there are like... 6 of them. So now i have like 129 images for 132 different moods. Took forever to upload though. Can't wait for the weekend! It will be a long time coming though, i can tell already. And i have a feeling i will probably cry before it is over.
One thing i did over the weekend but forgot to mention is that i started playing with firefox plugins. World clock on my status bar on the bottom and a cool tab viewer. This is what i do... lol
Now to bed..... well probably not but at least to be done with this entry.

My CE302 Professor is amazing! Lieks seriously. He moved our exam back to Tuesday next week. The review is at 7 am on monday which sucks so that means i will get up at 6:0, go to review and then go back to bed until 9 and then go to thermo but MY EXAM WAS MOVED BACK! So that means all i have to worry about is Econ this week. Which shouldn't be too bad.
I spent alot of today in Escape. Like a lot of time. From 2 till 430. But i got my lab report done and my Fluids written out homework.
Today i read the entirety of Fallen. it was very good. I recommend it. It's name is The Fallen by Thomas E. Sniegoski. About fallen angels, gregori, the heavenly host, God Almighty and Nephilim. I liked it. And i think there is more so i might go find that instead of reading the stack of books i still have... lol. All around, Angels are always good things to write about.
Which reminds me, i never talked about the other eye opener that i read this summer. Repossessed was an interesting novel with a.. not quite unique concept but an eye opener. Its about a fallen angel who takes over a teenage boy who was about to accidentally step in front  of a car. It's watched the boy for a long time and thus, attempts to live as him. The story is told through his eyes as he lives as a person, for the first time having the five senses and a body to enjoy them with. he enjoys everything that he does. Sneezing, eating, wearing clothes, seeing peoples eyes. And the statements in it are provoking. The fallen angel lives the kids life better in a few days then the kid did his whole life thus far. He tries to do as much as possible, with a mental list of all the things he wants to try out from sneezing to sex. His internal monologue about masturbation (which he tries out very shortly after getting his new body) is unique, an interesting statement about how people always seem so guilty afterward, yet he says it felt so good he doesn't understand why people don't do it more often. He loves looking at "his" best friend's eyes and sleeping, because he has never slept before. And the story poses some interesting ideas about God and Angels and Fallen Angels. Fallen angel at one point theorizes that the reason they fell and were "forsaken". All around it is a short read (like 150 pages and they are short pages) but it was good. Every page was beautiful and thoughtful, though that may be from a christian point of view. I am not sure if an atheist or agnostic feel the same feelings. Seriously the book made me cry. It's on my list of books to buy.
Now to start on a new book... Lol

Today was a pretty rocking day. A boring day but rockin in terms of homework things.
I went to linear and got 1/2 of my homework done for next week. Then I had time off, did some printing and then went to Mechanics, during which i did all of my mechanics homework. then I got leftover food, did my fluids and then went to work on my lab, which i also finished. Finished Thermo, finished everything. Pretty awesome.
Freaks reminds me of Geek Love. very odd book but i like it. I bet i will finish it tomorrow. I have another lab tomorrow, which is lame but my report that i finished is drop dead sexy. As i told Tidah, if i were another report, i would be all over my report. The Specific Gravity equation, the greek letters. Amazing.
maybe i will work on my nanowrimo oulines as well, we shall see. Also reading MANGA!... >.>... time for bed lieks woah.
