Well today I had my first grade and test in Differential Equations. It was only 6 questions. I know I got most of them for the most part, but there is one that I can’t believe I missed, I was just totally not thinking. It was y’-2y=4 and we had to solve by separation of variables. And I was just staring at it. I don’t know how, but my mind went blank and I didn’t think to use dy/dx and then just get dx by itself. So, I am really pissed because if I would have thought of that I wouldn’t of had any problems doing the rest of the problem. Damn that really pisses me off when I do that because I do it on every damn test. And that hurts me a lot because each test is like 15-20% of my grade, but I don’t remember exactly and am too lazy to go and find out.
Speaking of pitiful. How about them Blues, they lost again tonight. And are currently in 9th place in the western conference. So if the season ended now we would miss the playoffs for the first time in about 25 years.
Today I went out to BestBuy and picked up the new Incubus, Lostprophets, and Hoobastank cd’s. I haven’t had a chance to listen to them yet.
Also, I was supposed to have a test in Differential Equations on Thursday, but that has been pushed back to next Tuesday, Thank God for that one. We had a practice quiz today and it’s a damn good thing that that wasn’t for a grade. Everyone in the class felt the same way.
Well tomorrow I start classes again. It seems like forever since I last went, Dec 18 to be exact. The good things is that my first class isn’t until 12:30.
I am also going to be using a feature of w.bloggar which will automatically put whatever song I am listening to in to each of my posts.
I will post about my trip in the next day or so.
Well my Earth Science teacher emailed me back and I got an 111 out of 150 on the final, which blows. I needed an 124 to keep my A. So, I got a B for the class, so I am pissed. I don’t know how I could have done that bad.
Well, today was the last day of finals.
Monday I had my stats final. I think I did ok. We also had to turn in a project that is either worth 5% or 10% of our grade and that should be an easy A. I had a 91% before the project and the final, so I should still have the A.
Tuesday, No finals. Which was nice because I had 2 papers to write and a final to study for. So that was pretty much most of my day, 11 am – 10 pm.
Wenesday I had my Intro to Gov test. My teacher had our grades done by the afternoon so I found out what I got. I got an 87 on the final and a B for the course.
I also had to turn in my 2 papers for my Intro to Lit class. Well I get there and a couple of the guys in the class are waiting outside, so I walk over. And I find out that our teacher wasn’t there and there was a note saying to put the papers in his mailbox. What a lazy son of a bitch. I have no idea what my grade will be for the course, considering that 40% of our grade is the 2 papers and anther 20% is class participation.
Ok, and today I had my Earth Science final. Which I didn’t study much for, just read over my notes. I needed to get a 83% to keep my A. Our test was 160 multiple choice and we only had to answer 150 of them. Plus he gave us 10 bonus questions, which was nice esp. since most of the bonus questions were ones already asked in the test. I think I did pretty well, but we’ll see.
Tonight was good. I went to the St. Louis Blues game against the San Jose Sharks. A friend of mine got 25 free tickets. And they were damn good seats, they normally run 85 bucks each. It was a great game. The Blues won 4-2.
Well, yesterday one of our damn cats decided to piss on my cd case and on 4 of my cd’s. And the cat is also in heat so whines all the time. The damn thing is driving me nuts. Tuesday we are having it spade and putting up a listing at the vet to get rid of the damn thing.
Today was my last day of regular classes. I only had two, but was there from 9 am to 2 pm. After my first class I spent almost 3 hours in the math computer lab working on a project for my stats class. Well, it only took me a little over 90 min. but another guy from my class came in and I helped him for about an hour.
