Hmm... I didn't forget about you blog...

lol, yeah so it's the last week of October and I only made 1 blog post this month, and that was the 3rd... >.> I've been sort of busy doing nothing. I know, doesn't make sense, but really time just seems to be flying right now and I'm really not doing anything... It's a strange feeling. I've been keeping up on my gym schedule, going 4 days a week. I've been going to my classes, 5 days a week. I've been eating and sleeping. And really, that's basically all I've been doing...

Tennis class is definitely my favorite "class" ever. I just go and hit the ball around with someone or multiple people for 2 hours and come back next week. Love it. Tennis is really fun, and I'm actually really pretty good (and getting better!) but I'm glad the class isn't stressful and competitive with skills tests and such. It's just a nice, laid back class to play some tennis.

On the other side of the spectrum, Systems Analysis and Design class and Intro to Speech class started this week... As soon as I finish this post and update my Weight Training tab (haven't updated it in over a month...) I'm going to start reading Chapters 1 and 2 in the book (which cost me 190$!! :'( I'm nearly broke again... not a good sign) which is 130 pages... because I have to do Chapter 1 and 2 homework, and take the Chapter 1 and 2 quiz by Sunday. Yes, the day after tomorrow. Well, in 2 hours and 16 minutes it will be tomorrow. Ugh... Even more worrying than that is that my 2nd Physics exam is coming up next Wednesday, and I honestly have as good a chance of passing it as I did before I even started taking Physics. So I've got to cram all of that down my head and try to make sense of it by Wednesday, because I really haven't had the drive/time/motivation/opportunity/whatever else to catch back up and stay caught up. I'm going to force myself to get caught up by Wednesday though, and then I'll be able to stay caught up and it'll be a lot easier and less stressful. Which reminds me, I have to do my lab writeup by Wednesday. Arg.

Well, at least I got a break in Career & Life Planning class, since the professor said she's going to be leaving all assignments open the entire semester. So, I don't have to worry about this week's assignment right now, I can put it off a week.

Good thing too, because I have to give my first speech next Friday for Into to Speech class. The topic is me... Luckily the speech should be 2 minutes max. I'm not sure if I'll make a PowerPoint for it yet or not, lol.

Hopefully next week (a week from Monday) I'll be caught up and things will be less stressful and I'll be organized and ready to go, so I can start tanning on the beach. It looks like tanning for 1 hour on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday @ 9 A.M. would be a good schedule. We'll see.

My head is just buzzing with tons of random noise, so I really can't think of anything else I wanted to say.

So if you'll excuse me, I'm going to update my Weight Training Log and then work on SAAD (That's what I'm going to call it... Systems Analysis And Design).

Oh and take note of and enjoy the new song of the week, Love Me Do - The Beatles.

Ha... nearly the 2nd highest grade in the class.

Yeah, you know that physics exam I failed? Turns out I got an 84... =/ I'm just too good at bullshitting my way through questions, I suppose. Like my one answer that I received full points on:

Okay, here's the question:

Suppose you are in a train moving at constant velocity relative to the ground. You toss a ball to your friend several seats in front of you. Use Newton's second law to explain why you cannot use your observations of the tossed ball to determine the train's velocity relative to the ground.

Alright, now I'll tell you first off, I can't tell you Newton's second law if my life depends on it. Not even the basics of gist of it. So, what do I do? Bullshit mode, of course! Here's my answer:

"You cannot use your observations of the tossed ball to determine the train's velocity relative to the ground because what you are observing is the balls' velocity relative to the train. Your frame of reference is the same as that of the train because you are both moving at the same constant velocity."

Now, I didn't mention Newton's second law at all. Also, what I said makes no sense, I believe. First step to bullshitting is to restate the question to make it look like you know what you're talking about, next step is to put in some stuff that sound good and might be relevant to the question, or at the very least the topic (physics). Ta-da, you get an A, apparently. =/

So yeah, he told us the 2 highest grades in the class: a 96 and an 86. I got an 84, so yeah... Sad imo. And no, I do not feel like I deserve an 84... My test is garbage made wrapped around bullshit with random numbers thrown in. Hilarious.

Ah well.

I went and signed up for my gym membership today... Cost me a little over 100$. Ouch. But worth it, I think.

I know I say it every other blog post, but I'm going to change my life around for real. No more slacking, LOL. Starting tomorrow! You'll see... I'll do it.

Alright, that's about all. I've gotta head to bed now.


Oh might as well say what I've been doing the last week. I started going to a World of Warcraft forum and becoming e-popular. I got almost 1,000 posts in a week. Yes, I have no life. Also, I made a signature request post and got about 25 pages of requests before I finally close it (way too many requests, I couldn't keep up, and I need to get off there and turn my life around! >.>)

Anyway, here are some of the signatures I've made in the last week or so (yes, some of them are clearly bad and or not as good as others, it happens, especially when I made a lot of these around 4 or 5 AM with no sleep):
