Diamonds Everywhere
January 25, 2013

Three weeks down and one week to go for this computer class I’m taking for the Winter session. The class is serving its purpose of killing time for me while I’m on Winter break right now. I’m practically done with all of the classwork for this class since Monday. I had two extra credit opportunities and I took advantage of one of them. I had to create a PowerPoint presentation about anything I please. I would make a presentation about the Camaro except I already used that topic for my midterm paper for my other computer class last semester. Instead, I wrote about 55 Cancri e- where 1/3 of the planet is made of diamonds.

As for the second unit test I took for the class, I ended up getting 4 wrong which is an 83%. I didn’t mind since the test seemed confusing to the rest of the class and it’s based on a curve. I’m not really worrying since I have the extra credit assignment that could cover the loss anyways.

Today, a few of my friends from band (who I usually call my band kids) and I went to California Pizza Kitchen to hang out and eat. I had a great time since everyone had plentiful of interesting topics to talk about. Everyone had their own pizza including myself. While everyone else finished their pizza, I couldn’t finish the last couple of slices of my order and ended up boxing the leftovers for another friend. I haven’t hung out with a couple of them for a few months and this was a nice reunion (of some sort). I even uploaded a couple of pictures on Instagram {1 & 2}.

The last week of January is coming up… Time is really flying by fast. There’s not much we can do about it besides making a good use of our time and enjoying the things we do, right?

    Guess you had an enjoyable moment with your band kids! Hahahaha! There’s nothing much to be comment too (lol, am I supposed to comment? This is just for fun!) Have a nice winter Nancy!

    Have a blast! πŸ™‚ x

    Well done with all your schooling, sounds like you’re very dedicated πŸ™‚
    Looks like you had a lot of fun with your ‘band kids’ haha! I wouldn’t have been able to finish the whole pizza either but I would definitely try πŸ˜›
    I cannot believe how quickly January has gone, holy shit.

    CPK! I love CPK. Their white pizza is delicious. Last time i went I got some voucher for my next visit, but unfortunately I think it’s expired as I don’t live near a CPK location.

    Woah, woah. A planet made partially of diamonds? I’ve never heard of that before – that’s amazing!

    Aw, that’s nice of you to send the hot cheetos! πŸ™‚ I didnt know they don’t sell them in WA… I guess that’s one place I may never visit since I love hot cheetos like crazy and eat them more than anything ;x.

    It’s always nice to hang out with old friends! It’s my favorite πŸ™‚ You always have so much to say and you feel so much more comfortable saying it. & ahah you guys are funny! Eating pizza with utensils. πŸ˜› I had a phase where I hated getting stuff on my hands so I did that too x)

    & yes, yes! Have a happy rest of whatever’s left of January. πŸ˜€

    PS I am from socal! I moved to norcal for school, though so I miss being able to get good food… like CPK :'( I think I have to drive to Sac for that and well… you now know how I feel about driving. πŸ˜›

    I love the point that you get in a class when you realize that you’re over halfway done in the class. I’m glad that it’s keeping you busy. Time does seem to be just flying by though – I can’t believe I’ve already finished my first semester of college…

    That was sweet of you to get Hot Cheetos for Kelsey. πŸ™‚

    Wow, that’s pretty cool. I didn’t know that about the planet. Diamonds, Diamonds!

    83% isn’t that bad, it’s still pretty cool. I’m glad that you’re doing what you want on your winter break and being productive. Nothing better than getting things out of the way.

    I’m glad that you had fun with your friends from band. I love having reunions with old friends.

    Take care πŸ™‚

    A planet partially made of diamonds? Interesting.

    I’ve noticed that you go to a lot of restaurants. Can’t wait to find out what restaurant you went to next! πŸ™‚

    It’s February on Friday! Wow. Time flies so fast indeed.

    Is the computer class a basic computer class? Either way, if it’s accredited, it will most likely look good on your resume. :p It’s adding skills that a lot of people look for these days.

    I forgot about Hot Cheetos, actually. They were really popular when I was in middle school, and they disappeared a few years ago. They can still be found around here in some places, but not in many places, and not in a large quantity. It’s sweet of you to send Kelsey some. πŸ™‚

    I’m going to hope & assume that the California Pizza Kitchen tastes better in California than it does here. :p For starters, the pizzas look better.

    I wonder if that planet will be bought as an engagement thing xD Just think about it, you could propose with a planet instead of a ring!

    Great job on your test! It’s really cool you got to do a presentation about anything though. I wish I could do that for a couple of my classes xD

    Ahhh that pizza looks so good! Especially since right now I’m sitting here at my lunch period with no food xD I’m glad you had fun; it’s always fun to go out with people =)

    Wow, props to you for taking a winterim course! I can never bring myself to do it. (Also, I never want to divide my financial aid like that.) It sounds like it’s not *too* hard, though.

    I just Googled that planet and OMG I NEVER REALIZE ONE LIKE THAT EXISTED BEFORE. So cool. O.O

    I really love California Pizza Kitchen. I went to one in Chicago once, and it was the best pizza I’ve ever eaten. Well, it was up there, at least. I still have a weakness for Uno’s thick crust pizza.

    I’m going to talk to my adviser about the honors paper. See what she thinks of it, and find out if it’s even an option. ‘Cause who knows, I may not even be qualified for it.

    Yeah, and we found a roommate for the apartment! Which is a huge weight off our shoulders. ^^ She seems pretty easygoing and friendly, so I’m hoping we’ll get alone. The only thing we don’t have in common is our music tastes.

    I’m pretty sure your site has a lot of views for other reasons, too. You’re an active and fantastic blogger, for one. And you put a lot of effort into your site. It shows. <3

    What classes are you taking this upcoming semester?

    I didn’t know about 55 Cancri e. That’s pretty cool!

    I see California Pizza Kitchen here, though I haven’t tried it. Looks tasty though! I’m glad you guys had a good time there. It’s always nice to catch up with friends you haven’t seen in a while.

    Oh man, time really is flying by fast. I didn’t realize how close to the end of the month it was!

    You have been keeping busy just in general. The best thing about extra credit is always having that chance to make up any points you lost on a test or anything else.

    I’ve never had Hot Cheetos before. I’ve seen them in stores but never bought them. I am a fan of hot things but not a big fan of Cheetos.

    It’s been like two weeks since I’ve been out with any friends. I’ve just been lazy and hiding from the weather. haha.

    I wish I could live on a planet of diamonds. It’d be so sparkly and fun. Random. Anywho, I’m glad that you had a nice time with your friends from band. I’ve never heard of that restaurant but I do love a good pizza place. Super cute photos too. =D

    83%? Woa, still a really good job. I wish I had your motivation for studying! I hate myself for being lazy. Heh.

    The pizzas look so yummy! It really looks like you had fun eating pizzas at CPK seeing the smiles on your faces on the 1st picture! Haha.

    Right, 2 days from now it’ll already be February, can’t believe how time flies so fast!
