Done

First year of college is done with and over. It was long and hard....and I have learned to hate the other people in my classes for being so smart and myself for not going to extremes like other people in the classes to sabotage the other students grades....

Semester 2, The Begining

Semester 2 just began this week. My classes seem tough (3 lab courses plus a normal course load) and I am not looking foreward to when all the classes really get going in terms of homework/quizes/lab reports...This is going to be a really hard semester for me. I am beginning to doubt my Chemical Engineering major...every time someone asks me what major I am working towards, they grimace at the response and apologize...surely that cannot be a good sign for my remaining 7 semesters...

Semester 1, In Review

School is hard. Too much competition. I need to start applying myself to the work more so that i get on the top end of the bell curves...

Final Exams, Part 2

I hate final exams. So much. And now that I'm done, I really don't want to know how I did. Bad feelings about the results.

Thanksgiving and College Life Continued

Its almost that time of year again; time to be at home, eating massive quantities of arguable the best food you will eat all year, and watching (or even playing) football. Having been away at school for the past three months, coming home is going to feel weird.   As my former english teacher once said, "When you come home for Thanksgiving your freshmen year of college, it will be the first time that you will be a guest in your parent's homes." Somehow this seems true. Although I still claim

More College Fun

Midterms week...Yay!!!   So i only have two exams during midterms week, which is really awesome, especially because they are my two easiest classes (Psychology and Astronomy)...   As a random factoid...   Every day, the earth begins to revolve slower, causing the days to get longer, because the moon is getting farther away and absorbing Earth's angular momentum. Eventually the moon will tidal lock the earth into orbit, causing the moon to stay in the exact same place above earth. Sadly, this w

First Weekend

So last night me and a couple of friends i have met this week (all of whom were girls) decided to go frat hopping last night. It was awesome. I only bad one can and then two cups from a keg, so i didnt go overboard, but i had a blast. It was keystone light though, so it was pretty watered down tasting, but it was decent enough to drink. It was really funny though because there were cops out in Greek-Town (where the frats are) and they saw all the underage drinking and did nothing. Yay for l

College Life

So i moved in to my dorm room on saturday (it is monday today) and i am so bored. Classes havent started yet and it has been raining the entire time i have been here. I went over to Disobliges room yesterday as well...It is a freakin hotel room. It has airconditioning and free HBO. It is also alot nicer then my hell hole...no AC, hot and humid cause of the rain, and it is only supposed to get hotter.

Graduation

I graduated. Now i am done with my formal schooling. Next Year starts college and all the fun times there. I am starting school as a Chemical Engineering major. Should be fun.   In my summer boredom, i have started to play Fable for the pc again. I am also working 40+ hours a week. Why am i so bored?

Prom

Went to prom on Friday. It was at the Field Museum. I had fun dancing with all the girls in my group. After we slept at a friends house but i had to leave early to go to practice (on less then one hour of sleep...i had some fun that day doing flips...). We also went to the Indiana Dunes which was cool. I like the beach.

Over

School is almost over!!!! There is only one month of half-assed learning before graduation. And that month will consist of torture from Prom plans (really, really not looking foreward to prom planning...)   Anyways, its spring break which is nice since i can sit around and do nothing and not get yelled at...

Rejected

So today i got a letter back from this scholarship i had applied to. Only 100 people are allowed to apply and it is invite only. It was for a dull ride up to and including a doctorate. It was an amazing chance. I did not get it. I am kinda sad in that it would have been an amazing win, but at the same time, it was to a university that i wasnt really thrilled to go to (although it is still an amazing institution). This has cemented in my decision to attend the University of Illinois-Urbana

Physics is Phun...not...

So...you know that you are doing well in a class when you can take a test, fail it, and then go in a second time to an easier test and still fail it. Not to mention the next day failing a test that depended on the one before it...   My physics teacher has decided to stop grading out tests because the class average was below a 60%...Oh Yeah...we are that smart...

New Year

Its a new year and nothing special has happened. It is second semester of my senior year and its not as exciting as i though that it was going to be. I am pretty much doing nothing in school. On the plus side, i start Calculus 3 this week so it should be fun. My dad is riding my case on scholarships too...he dosent want to pitch in for my college (he is still pissed because i scored better then him on the ACT).
