Oh my gosh, I just can’t believe that it’s December already, or that the last time I posted was in August – at the beginning of this semester! How is that even possible??
Well, anyways… hello again! I do hope you all are doing quite well. I’ve been… well I’ve been up and down. It seems my life is full of lots of these moments.
Me rockin’ my new panda spirithood I got on Black Friday with money from my birthday. Rawr!
It’s amazing to me how much has occurred in the last few months… I started this semester with an overwhelming workload, and unfortunately I didn’t see the signs until it was too late that I had bitten off far more than I could chew. Which led to my having to withdraw from my chem class. Note to self: the next time you get a hair-brained idea to take a college chem class to fulfill both your physical science and lab requirements, don’t. College chem is not the same as high school chem, and even if you liked it in high school it doesn’t mean you’ll enjoy it in college!
That’s all I can say to describe my first day back!
It started off on the wrong foot because Nik left early this morning to head into work in prep for leaving for the field today. He’s gone for a bit, and it made me really really sad because this is the first lengthy field op I’ll have dealt with since we moved in together at the end of May…
A few months ago he had one too, where he was gone for ~20 days or so, but we weren’t living together yet so it wasn’t as hard. Sure there were days where I went without hearing from him because of lack of cell service, but I wasn’t used to seeing him every day like I am now… which makes it harder.
So after a tearful goodbye (on my end because I’m a big baby) I was left with my orange marine-in-training for company =(
After moping around for a bit, I finally hurried to get ready in time to make the long-ish drive to my college.
However – and this is where my day continued to stay awesome – I forgot something really important that I needed today… My marketing material to give to my SI students on the first day of class! -.-
And naturally, I realized that half way into my drive. So there was no way I could turn around to get it and then get back to school on time for class…
So on I continued. And as I continued towards school, I realized more things I forgot…
Hey guys! *wave*
Holy-freaking-cow it’s been a long two weeks. Like, for reals.
My tutoring class started last Monday, and ends in 2 days. I have had tons of homework and reading to do for it, plus in the middle of it I had 2 6-hour days of orientation for my job at the college as an SI (Supplemental Instruction) Leader.
I actually have a shit ton of homework I need to be doing right now to finish up my tutoring course, as well as some harp practice, but I figured I’d do a quick post about what happened amidst all of this (and while I sip on my venti caramel-mocha frap – with an extra shot of espresso – that’s going to help me get through the rest of the day/evening).
So… I had a harp lesson back on the 29th of July. With my harp lessons come 60 miles worth of driving to and from my lesson. It’s really far, but it’s completely worth it because I’m studying with the professor of harp at the university I’m hoping to transfer to.
The day after my lesson, Murphy and his damn law decided it’d be a great idea to pay me a visit – something he does WAY too often if you ask me.
So, what happened you might ask? Well, if you’ve followed my posts on my FB page or on twitter, you should be well aware. He decided to mess with my poor Elizabeth… one of my best friends in the world. Who is Elizabeth you may ask? She is my beautiful, 95 year old harp that I’ve owned for the past 7 years or so.
Sorry it’s been a few days since I last posted a Let’s Play video. I started my 2-week tutoring course at my school this week, and just finished up 2 days of orientation for my new job for the school. So…. I’ve been kinda too busy/tired to actually get this posted until now. But I don’t have any class tomorrow, so I finally made some time to get this done
In this episode Booker has managed to get all of Columbia put on lock down following the discovery of his hand brand signifying him as the false shepherd because the police force is trying to kill him. Booker still has a mission to complete though – finding Elizabeth – which is what he is attempting to do. As he makes his way through Columbia, killing police as he goes, he discovers more racism (including some KKK wanna-bes sporting some blue robes) and crazies.
<3 and harp strings,
Ohaider gais! *wave*
I’m back with the next part in my ‘Let’s Play’ Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis series. My last episode was unfortunately cut short, but I made up for it with this one >_> So yeah. Uh… *cough* Moving on!
In this episode I finally managed to have Indy stop pissing Sophia off so they can make their way to a room with a scale model of Atlantis. Indy used all three stones – the Sunstone, Moonstone, and Worldstone – to unlock a door, and instead of Sophia following him through, it was Kerner! Our favorite German Nazi a-hole. After seeing how far I could push him (and failing at calling his bluff because he apparently does not bluff), Indy is trapped inside the labyrinth while Kerner runs off to his sub with Sophia. So Indy has to figure a way out of the labyrinth and onto the sub so he can rescue Sophia, get the stones back, and finally make his way to Atlantis!
<3 and harp strings,
