Blog Entry

I have a test in Java Programming tomorrow, a test and a paper due in my Freshman Seminar on Wednesday, a current events speech to give in my Public Speaking class on Thursday, and a test in Logic on Friday. Not to mention two HUGE homework assignments in Calculus: one on indefinite integrals due on Wednesday and one on definite integrals and the area under the curve due on Friday. We're supposed to go over each assignment the day we turn it in, but I don't know how much that'll help me. Integrals are beyond me, and all they are is the antiderivitive, and I've got the derivitive thing down!

User-defined Methods and Semantic Tableaux and Integrals, OH MY!

I just thought I would make a quick blog entry to help ease my headache before I continued cramming for Java. Please pray that I make it through this week alive, lol.

Too Busy for My Own Good

Full-time college and part-time work consumes my time, lol. I actually took homework with me to do in the car when I went shopping with my parents today, lol. So yeah, we went to the Riviera Center and I bought me some new pink and black Vans. I already have some pink and black Vans, but I've had them for like two years, lol. I also bought some ornaments from the Disney Outlet Store. A family tradition around here is that every year everybody gets a nice, new ornament to put on the tree every year. Since we're not having a big Christmas this year (which is normally our family's trademark), I bought the ornaments for myself and my two brothers. My parents couldn't afford it. Heck, they're asking me to pay next month's rent, they definitely can't afford any extras! The good news is, my mom is supposed to go back to work Thursday, which is the day my friend Brittanie should be having her baby, so my mom will probably take care of her baby, and that will rock. Just pray that my mom gets to go back to work this week, because if she doesn't, I don't know what we're gonna do. Anyways, have a great week everyone!

What is Going On

So, school is hard right now.

My math class is getting difficult, but my teacher realizes that and we've slowed down so that we have more time to absorb everything and that's making it alot better. Today was the third day we've spent on the same 2 principles of derivatives, lol. But tonight (or tomorrow, which ever one I feel like more) I'll take my huge homework assignment from Friday home and correct it all (he's letting us all redo the assignment because hardly any of us understood it) and then I'll be up to speed in that class.

I just finished a very difficult program in Java. I wrote the entire program the wrong way (although it gave the correct output the processes were wrong and you can get serious points off for that) and had to rewrite it here at work. I am finished with it though and it is correct now.

I'm taking tomorrow off work to study for my mid-term in Logic, which I'm probably going to fail anyway (and no, I'm not just saying that--I've made Ds on all the homework). My only saving grace in that class is that our teacher has promised us that if we just show up to every class and turn in every homework assignment we'll get at least a C, so that's what I'm shooting for. This is the hardest class and the most difficult subject matter I have ever faced in my entire life. It's just ungraspable. Maybe one C won't bring my GPA down to where I lose my scholarship if I make an A in everything else.

My Freshman Seminar and Information Technology in Society classes aren't necessarily difficult (I practically sleep through IT in Society, lol), but they both require us to write a huge paper about every other week. The teachers claim that some study was done about CIS careers and the surveryors asked companies what they wish they could improve about the CIS people they were hiring and the number one answer was "We wish they had better writing skills." So we have to practice, practice, practice by writing ridiculously long papers about stuff to do with computers. Blech.

Public Speaking is hands down my favorite class this semester. It's easy, it's fun, my teacher is hillarious, my classmates are awesome (and for once there's a room full of people who are nice to me, lol), and I've got an A in there. I'm giving my Informative Speech this Thursday on "How to Make a Website." Like the last two, this class isn't hard, there's just alot of writing to do (I have to write my speeches).

So yeah, that's what's going on with me in school right now. Work is kind of slow lately (thus the reason I'm typing this from there, lol) and church is awesome. That's all.

Just an Update

Rant

Parents: "Hey Amanda, we've decided just to up and leave and ride around town, wasting gas money. We know you've got a speech to write, a Java program to write, a mid-term to study for, and a huge Calculus assignment to do on top of all your laundry, but could you do our laundry too? Oh, and we expect it to be done by the time we get back. Clean our room, your room, the living room, and watch the boys. Remember, don't spend any money on pizza or anything, because in a week or two we're gonna squeeze you dry for cash since your mom's out of work, and in the meantime we'll be using our money to go out on the weekends. See you later sucker!"
