Hanging out last night with Amber, Corey, and Phil. It feels good to be back.
I don’t have New Year resolutions, I have new semester resolutions:
Listed in order of importance, I think. I seriously think that I could do the first with no trouble, I just need to apply myself for once. That’s the major issue. I know I’m smart and I know I can do this stuff, I just haven’t bothered trying yet. Once I start being responsible I should be much better off.
I was assigned to read the first three chapters of Daniel Gilbert’s Stumbling on Happiness and write about something that interested me. Rereading my paper it sounds more like I summarized his key points, but because “write about something that interested me” was awfully vague… I’m hoping it’ll work. I do like that I was able to provide a little insight into my own thinking as well as show that I do not agree with everything Gilbert says. There is a lot I could have expanded upon, especially at the end of the paper, but a) I felt the paper was kinda long already, b) I don’t have much time left for the paper, and c) I have no how I would expand upon it (I just know that it needs it). All that said, I really enjoy my writing style in this piece. And the book was actually slightly interesting. I have the whole thing in audiobook, so I technically listened to the first three chapters instead of reading them, but it’s the same thing in the end. The audiobook I have is read by the author and he does a pretty good job of it. I might finish listening to it at some point.
I made scrambled eggs yesterday morning, they were running due to too much milk. I put sharp cheddar in them. Good stuff. I made eggs again this morning, but this time I put in some Oscar Meyer turkey and about two to three quarters tablespoon of taco seasoning. It was actually pretty good, though something else needed to go in to kind of play with the taco seasoning flavor a bit, I think.
I have four mornings left here, I have been using three eggs each time I make them, and there are a dozen eggs in the fridge. I think I’m set. I just need more things to try. Things I have been suggested that I could actually do:
I also had a thought when my mom was preparing her breakfast this morning: hot chocolate powder. Just enough to add some flavor to it. I mean, I already put syrup on my eggs if they’re plain, so why not add another sweet flavor to the mix?
Or just holy fuck, luck? My other E became a D.
LAN Party was two days ago. Pretty fun. Almost won some money, then did win some money. Hung out, generally a fun time.
The FFXI threads that keep popping up on /v/ as well as playing FFTA2 (full title: Final Fantasy Tactics Advance 2: Grimoire of the Rift, long much?) all the time have really given me an urge to get back into FFXI… :|
Catherine IMed me the other day, totally out of the blue. Something about still getting emails from the NewTF forums? I don’t even get those, so I don’t know what she’s talking about. Anyway, apparently her and I know someone in common besides Jason. Someone that thinks I’m a dick now? I’m more confused about who else she knows that I know. Well, and I’m a little curious as to why this person thinks I’m a dick. Maybe it’s just because I don’t talk to anybody from home now besides Paul and the occasional Alyssa or Jason?
The Psych grade IS a C! :D :D :D
How am I still above a 2.0GPA?
OK, no, something’s up with my Psych grade. It’s easily a C (according to the points), not an E as the site says. Emailed the prof, waiting for response. The other E I didn’t expect, but I kinda do deserve (though I also wonder if that’s not wavering as well, since the prof is always late on things; unfortunately the prof doesn’t post things on blackboard…).
Also, I only knew of course replacements, there’s still course retakes (where both grades are on your transcript, but it’ll allow me to redeem myself at least). All is not lost!
