“Out of the world for a spell…”

December 17, 2007

That’s one of my favourite lines from “Firefly”, a little known TV series from fox that ran for half a season then died out. A movie was made closing up the story called Serenity…. well not closing it up so much. Anyways, thought it applied here.

Been busy with exams and school and failing Calculus. Yes, apparently I cannot master really horribly illogical things called derivatives. They make no sense to me and make me want to barf… of course the beautiful thing is that first 4 or so weeks of the course where my professor taught us all of nothing (not true, he went over some random useless experiment like 800 times) and only the people who could figure it out from the text book passed the first midterm. We did sit him down after that and said “look butt monkey, you need to teach us” on the pressured advice of my girlfriend (We were all just going to go to the Board of Directors)… He started teaching us… but unfortunately for many of us (including myself) it was too little too late.

There were three classes for Calculus when the first semester started all taught by the same guy, all full. The second part of the course is only being offered in the second semester, and I’m told there’s plenty of room.

I don’t feel too badly though, one of the smartest guys I know barely pulled a C.

Everything else went okay though. Good English grade good Chem grade… I’m a happy camper as it stands… Of course I’m going to be working Graveyards pretty quick here which will no doubt prove interesting.

Got most of my Christmas shopping done, just one or two things left… and I need to finish off Rhya’s Christmas presents. Slow process.

I’m sorry for the lack of updates. This was far easier when I had an abundance of free time after 5 PM…. now I’m pretty much all school all work and some sleep. I’ll try to keep you posted through the holidays though. Try.

I wont make you guys any promises, I just don’t have the ability to do that. I’ve said in the past that I’ll get back to a schedule, but it’s just not feasible… Things happen, and this will likely take a back seat to other crap going on.

Anyways…

That’s all I can think of right now. I’ll try and hit you back in the near future.
