So this week, I had a pile of things to do at work, 20 pages of draft due this week, and finals are coming closer, making me hardly have time to breathe. Thank goodness that there’s nothing much on TV (no more The Mole and I survived Japanese show), that’s an extra 2 hours for me to do something else. But I can’t wait until this weekend, where I can catch up with everything I miss (on TV of course), and next week I’ll have a week off from one of my job because my boss is going out of town. Yay!
So, I’ve been planning to take a few weeks off from work in the end of summer (after this quarter is over), to take a vacation somewhere. I’ll get into that more next week, when I have more time to blog 😉 I don’t even have time to moderate the comments, I’ll do that next week too. Until then, cya.
On June 22, summer will be officially on, and I am very much looking for it. However, I have a decision to make for this summer, whether I am going to take summer courses or not. If I do, then I will be as busy as I am now. With 2 part-time jobs and 2 or 3 classes a week, they really drive me to the wall sometimes. And if I don’t enroll this summer, I might pick up a summer job too. However, if I take classes this summer, I’ll be over with my study sooner…
I have 2 more weeks to decide whether or not to enroll for summer class. In the mean time, I’ll think about it when I have time to do so.
And about my phone cards website, it’s been abandonned (NOT for good, I promise). Maybe next week, I can find sometime to update it.
Paper, paper and more papers! I have tons of papers to write this weekend, and probably next week. I have some reports to do on my job, take home exams, and term paper due next week. For the take home exam, I have to write an essay in response of some questions, which is the same as making a paper.
I know that I’m not a good writer (perhaps I never enjoy doing so), and this pile of papers to make is making me depressed. Just a few minutes ago, I forced myself to start writing my term paper, and I got stuck, and here I am, writing on my blog again. It’s been a while since I have to write paper – for a teacher (I don’t have problem writing report to my boss, as it doesn’t have to follow “rules”).
I have a vouge idea on what I want to write, but it’s still to broad that it jumbled up my brain. Even though, I just write everything in, I don’t think I can edit it into one coherent paper. I feel like I wanna scream for help. Hmm, maybe I can call up my niece for ideas…and maybe she can help me out a little bit…
Happy May 1st everyone!
Last time I talked about my first quiz, and last week I had my 2nd quiz. It didn’t turned out to be better than the first one. Actually it was worse than the first one. The teacher didn’t go over the quiz after it was done, but I know that I missed some of the problems.
The thing is, I don’t buy the textbook. Textbooks are just expensive, even for used and older edition. And once I’m finished with the course, I’ll have trouble selling it again because 1)It’s old edition so the bookstore won’t buy it back. 2)I have to sell it online, and I don’t really like it. 3)There are tons out there waiting to be sold too.
So yeah, I don’t have any textbook for any of my classes. I’m not hoping to be a straight A student anyway, I’ll be happy with all B’s. Tomorrow I’m going to have a midterm. It’s pretty nerve-racking because I haven’t had to memorize a lot of things at once. Good thing that tomorrow I get a day off, so I can spend my afternoon studying.
Outside school, job is okay I guess. But I was kinda hoping for raise. When my boss hired me, she said that I’d get a raise after working a month or two. Now, it’s been more than two months, and still no raise, but Friday is payday, so we’ll see.
Tonight, I just had my first in-class quiz that I haven’t had for a long long time. I couldn’t even remember when was the last time I panicked because a teacher announced a pop-quiz. That was fun though, I refreshed many memories from my days back in school. So far I’m enjoying life as a student again, minus all the homework and projects. As for the quiz, the teacher went over it after we were done, and I got 12/15, so I guess it’s not so bad 🙂 I should have a midterm exam coming up two weeks from now. Man, I should ask my niece how to study for an exam!
As for phone cards collecting, I think I have to stop it for now. I’m just too busy to look around for new and interesting phone cards, and I just don’t have time to update my website. I don’t even have time to update my other blogs 😦
I know I owe lots of blog posts 😦 But I haven’t got any time to do almost anything these past few weeks. As I’ve talked on my previous post, I applied for a second job, and I got it. So now, I have 2 part time jobs, and it’s just like having a full time job. And one of the job requires me to work during weekend, so I lose 2 days where I used to have spare time to update my websites and blogs.
Another thing that I talked about is going to school again, and yes, I got accepted at this small university. I’m taking 4 classes, and all of them are evening ones. So, basically during weekdays, I hardly have time to do anything else. And on weekend, I still have to go to work, so I barely have time to do anything else….
I don’t know if those decision in taking 2nd job and going to school again are too much for me. I guess I have to continue for at least a quarter and see how far I can take this cramped lifestyle.
These days I’ve been so anxious about a lot of things. There are a couple of things that I’m really hoping for…
First, a new job. Currently, I have a part-time job, the pay isn’t so bad, but the hour is not a lot. So, I’ve been looking around for another part-time job. Today, I had an interview, and it seemed to go pretty well. I also had another interview last week, but I haven’t heard anything until now. So, I’m really anxious in getting this job, the pay is lower than what I earn now, but the job is easy and they can give me up to 20 hours, which is very nice.
I can use some extra money, but the time that I’m going to spend working will take out some time that I usually use to write on my blog, update my website, Digg, Stumble, and play online games.
Speaking of online games, that’s my 2nd thing that I’m anxious about. I found a game, and I’m dying to play. But then, I have to wait some time until my account can be activated. While waiting, I’ve been doing some research on what character to play, how I’m going to play, and stuff. I’ve even thought of several names for my characters! I really can’t stop thinking about the game that I haven’t been able to sleep well these few days. (Yes, it really happens; I’m not exaggerating.) I really can’t wait to play!
The last thing that I’m anxious about is courses that I’m planning to take. I have been thinking to get a college degree for quite some time. I’ve taken some courses on and off, and I think some of the credits can be used towards my degree. This time, I want to enroll permanently and take some courses every quarter. So, I’ve been talking to several colleges, but I’m having trouble with some paperwork (transcripts and stuff). Also, I’m not really sure what degree I want to take, but tomorrow, I’m going to have a meeting with the Dean, and hopefully he can help me sort things out.
