Beginning Week 2 of Summer Vacation

So it's week 2 of my vacation from school and I'm having a good time. I was playing video games and generally doing whatever pops into my head. So I've started a new game of God of War on the PSP - but what's more exciting and rare is the fact that I've been playing a game on X-Box 360. It's a game that I ordered at the last PAX and got in about February. I'd only played it a total of about three hours before this weekend, and I have now played it somewhere around 12. I'm on the second chapter. It's a lot of fun. The main character's name is War and he's one of the four horsemen of the apocolypse. The story line goes that there had been a truce between Heaven and Hell and it's been broken due to some kind of conspiracy and one of the horsemen, your character, pictured here, was summoned. His power gets taken away from him after the prolouge but he has to struggle to get it back through the chapters.

I worked on a website for my sister's paralegal association during the first week of my vacation. I didn't mind. I actually thought it was pretty fun and I got paid for it so it's a-okay. Yesterday, I read tarot for a new client that I got through a referral. She was pretty sweet. It was nice to meet a new one.So now we're watching TrueBlood. I really like this show, even though it's getting weirder and weirder.

Ah....First Weekend of Summer Break

Well, I finally finished the worst quarter of my academic career. I got a 3.0 in Biopsychology - which is bomb-diggity considering I made a D on the last two tests. My writing saved my ass once again. I got a 4.0 in my Anthro class, and was pretty happy about that. Now I'm waiting for my Communications grade. I'm hoping for good stuff. We had a comprehensive final that went back to the beginning of the quarter. When I first looked at it, I thought..."I am so screwed....I don't know ANY of this crap." But the longer I sat there, the more I remembered and the more I was able to write. So I have lots of hopes for that class grade too. I feel sorry for the professor because it seemed like it would be a cast-iron bitch to grade. One thing I know for certain is that I will never take three classes in one quarter if I'm working. Especially three classes that are all HARD.

So while I'm off school, I get to play a little code monkey and make a little green for it. My sister wants me to edit her paralegal association's website and I said I'd do it. She insisted I take some green for it, and who am I to argue. So that's what I'm working on this evening as I sit here in eager anticipation of the next TrueBlook episode.

It's been a great weekend and it's gonna finish off good too. I'm going to get this website updated and then play some video games after what I'm hoping is a great episode of True Blood! :)

So I guess I'd better get to it!

Well, it's full-on panic mode now. Here I am, blogging like a moron when I have a final project due today that is worth 70% of my grade in Anthropology and is, as of this moment, about half finished. Why am I procrastinating to such an extreme degree? I really couldn't tell you. I've just been operating on overload for so long, I think I've blown a fuse or something.

All I know is that after today, this Anthro class is done, and after tomorrow, my Biopsyche class will be done, and then I can focus on Communications, which is going to be a complete bitch-kitty and consume the entire weekend. **sigh** Well, just this one more and a whole month off. Okay, I'll get back to my presentation now.

There is a real Asshole in my Comm Class

What a jack-ass this mo-fo is. He's on his last quarter here at the UW and has the biggest mouth and the hardest head and the narrowest vision I've ever seen since Ive been in college.

So we are talking about listening in today's class. There is a researcher who is studying communication patterns of the Blackfeet Native Americans out on the mesas of the Dakotas. He is studying how they listen to trees and other aspects of nature. I, personally believe that this is a valid form of research and a valid form of listening. But, boy.... you should have heard these people in here. They are all about being complete absolutists....there is no gray area with these people - they are all "if it is not emperically sound - if you cannot see it, smell it or touch it, and cannot scientifically prove it then it's not real and therefore has no place in academia." Morons! Your bus is leaving... We don't fully understand the workings of a human brain, we don't fully understand particle physics....some of the greatest minds in history have attempted to ascertain the mind of God. Is that empirical? Undergrad ass-baskets, wake up! I have no patience for tiny-minded people. **sigh** I will be glad when this quarter is over. Over! Ahhh! I had to roll a professor under the bus for ignoring everyone in the online class, I have had to do homework almost every night and write more papers than I wrote in my entire school career up to this quarter, and I am puked of it! Ahhh!
