Back to School
April 25, 2013

It’s Thursday evening! This means I’m done with school for the week and off to a 3-day weekend! Why am I blogging on a Thursday evening? I wanted to change things up a bit for once, so why not?

I had some difficulty waking up early for school since I was accustomed to sleeping in due to spring break last week. Either way, I should be well adjusted to my sleeping schedule at this point. On Monday, I went to school at 8am so I could have a “preferred” parking spot on the third floor. As soon as I was about to make a turn into the lot, the whole parking complex was barricaded by policemen. There was supposedly a suspicious package found on the parking structure which was a false alarm after 3 hours of investigation. It’s a bit scary with all of these allegations going on daily and this is getting ridiculous. I would go on about how overly exaggerated this whole incident is- but I will spare myself from any debates that might stir up. Ultimately, the school should have evacuated everyone and cancelled classes for the day; but it didn’t happen and I was hoping for that to happen so I can have my Statistics exam I had that day postponed. Speaking of which, I probably bombed the exam considering how I totally blanked out and found out that I made a simple calculating error on a couple of the problems. Despite of all of that, I’m a bit optimistic because I have the opportunity to make up whatever lowest overall exam grade I received by doing well on an optional exam later next month.

Tuesday was a bit of a regular day since I ended my day early and bought ice cream from Baskin-Robbins afterwards. During my music class in the morning, we had to turn in a composition we created over the break so the instructor can play it on the piano. I was a bit lazy over the break and ended up copying a section of a song I made on Note Flight last year. The song sounded too “skrillex-y” (or what you hear in EDM) when the instructor played it. I thought I’d share that random experience.  As always, Wednesday was the longest day of the week with 4 classes that takes up ~14 hours with 2-hour breaks in between classes. The highlight of the day was having dinner at Panera Bread with my boyfriend before my economics class. The salads from Panera are delicious! I don’t really have a specific favorite salad since I’m still exploring the options.

Although my music class was cancelled today, I had to go to school early because I had an appointment for academic counseling. I have been putting that off since September and I might as well get it out of the way. It was beneficial since I have an “official” plan on record about what I want to do at school and planned out all of the classes I need. On the bright side, it matches most of the classes I planned to take later on. A few adjustments were made where I could jump to taking Java and C++ instead of a preparation course and algorithms…. Along with an additional math course I need to take which is Calculus. In a way, I knew I couldn’t escape Calculus no matter what computer major I pursue. Oh well. Might as well get it out of the way, right? At least I don’t need to worry about that until Spring of 2014. I believe I’m almost ready for Java and C++. I’m familiar with the mechanics of coding and I have been looking forward into taking C++ since I was 12 or something but I never had the right ambition to learn it on my own.

I had a midterm for Speech today and I winged it due to my lack of interest in actually studying the materials. Hopefully I did well enough for an A. Next week, I have an oral interpretation performance to do with my group and our story is about, “The Emperor’s New Clothes“. I have no doubt that we’ll do good so that’s a plus.

I suppose that’s it for now… Though… I noticed that I have been blogging about some of the stuff that goes on in my life since forever and I would like to thank those who have the time, patience, and interest to follow through the things I post about :D.

    I’m glad the suspicious package was just a false alarm! The college near me didn’t cancel classes either when they got a bomb threat. It was around exam time though, so I think they assumed it was a prank call to postpone everything (which it ended up being anyway).

    Wow, 14 hours is a lot of your day! I had semesters before where I had 4 classes in a day, and it was really tiring.

    I remember looking forward to learning C++ when I was in college too. Most of our classes were in Java, and I only had a few classes that actually used C++. Though, a lot of jobs in my city seem to look for Java, Ruby, or Python (I use Ruby at work).

    Good luck on your oral interpretation performance next week!

    It’s good that the suspicious package ended up being a false alarm! And I love Panera but I’ve never tried any of the salads, so it’s going on my mental list the next time I get to go 😀

    Good luck on your oral performance!

    That sounded like Skrillex?! Ahahah my favourite line of your blog, to the max. Love it. < I'm on a ridiculous diet right now… But if I wasn't- I'd totally be munching. lol

    Sounds like you had an okay week! ^^ Crazy about the package incident, though. I go to a tiny school with about 8,000 students, so we don’t have too much of a problem with things like that. Last week Tuesday the fire alarm in my dorm went off at 2am. That was terrible, especially since I had just fallen asleep.

    Ahhh, good luck in calc! In high school, I took AP Stats instead of AP Calc because it scared me so much. >.> I didn’t mind stats, so it worked out, but I picked a liberal arts major for a reason. Honestly, I’m not bad at math at all (I have a weird love for trigonometry), but I haven’t taken a serious math class since my sophomore year of high school, and I don’t know if I could do even basic algebra right now, haha.

    Oh, where are you transferring to? Are you going next year or the year after? And the best part of moving away is that your parents miss you, so you won’t get in trouble as much. ;] Also, begging them for money gets easier (or at least it did for me).

    The thing about Kohl’s is, if you go there on the right day, they have AMAZING sales. It’s just a matter of timing. My mom is also signed up for the rewards program (or whatever it is), so we get some money back if we buy stuff. It’s too expensive for me now, but I liked it while in middle and high school.

    Good to know that package ended up as a false alarm. But still, it’s very scary these days since bomb threats are everywhere. Better be careful.

    It sounded like skrillex? Sounds interesting. 😉

    Speech seems well for you. Good luck on your performance! 🙂
