A few days ago, I was spending about a week concentrating on nothing but algebra, trying to get ready for a test and to finish a homework assignment. Last night, things shifted towards preparation for my biology midterm this evening. I was prepared to have to cram for this midterm – I’d been studying along, but… Read More #572 – Shifting Gears
I’m so tired right now I’ve tried three times now to write this blog post so it makes sense, so at this point I think I’m going to do something quick and dirty. Today was another algebra day. That’s what I get for putting off a month-long homework assignment until the last week. Next assignment… Read More Don’t Worry, Little Brother, There’s More
Remember that cold that I was dealing with a week ago? It got better. For about three days. And today, I am dying. I’m coughing my brains out, my nose is alternately congested and runny, my throat is sore, I’m utterly exhausted, and I can barely keep my eyes open. I think I was ready… Read More Doesn’t This Thing Ever Leave?
Yesterday I mentioned that I needed some time management skills with our radio station’s manager, and she gave me some advice that I took to heart. Her recommendation was to use an Android app that has, among other features, a 20/10 timer. When that’s activated, it will count down 20 minutes for you to do… Read More That Went Well
So yesterday I went to my algebra instructor to ask about the problem that basically had me losing a day’s worth of study to slightly irrational thoughts. He gladly welcomed me into his office, and I showed him the problem that I was having. We went through it together, and I couldn’t understand why I… Read More Foolish Mistake
After taking off the weekend to recover from my cold, I dove back into schoolwork with both feet today. Algebra class went well, and even let out a little early, but for the first time I could not understand what was being covered in class. I’m chalking that up to the fast pace of the… Read More Back to School
Today in algebra class I turned in my fourth quiz and got back my first homework assignment, my third quiz, and my first test, all in one shot. The homework assignment wasn’t a big worry, since the answers for most of the questions were in the back of the book, and I checked those questions… Read More Day of Grades
Skankin’ Pickle was a California ska band that performed some rather … interesting songs. One of them is called “You Shouldn’t Judge A Man By The Hair On His Butt!!” (Yes, really. Clink the link.) In it, the lead singer proffers that despite outward appearances, well, you shouldn’t judge a man by the hair on… Read More Skankin’ Pickle Day
Not that much to report today. I slept very poorly last night so once I got my wife off to work I slept until nearly noon to make up for it. The problem with that is that I have a ton of algebra homework that I’ve put off and the deadline is Monday morning, plus… Read More Long Day in the Algebra Mines
Today was my first full day back since vacation, and it was back to the usual grind. The morning’s algebra class went well, and I got to see my friend on the way out, as usual (but not for long, her class ends in a week). I went home to knock out my dailies in… Read More Stress? What Stress?
