I forgot half the mechanisms on my O.Chem. exam :'(
It started snowing as I was leaving--YAYness!! :D
The Internet has returned to Seibert :)
I found a hilarious PotO parody of the song "What is this feeling?" Read it--it's hysterical: LOATHING!
Secret Garden's original version of "You Raise Me Up" is rather pretty--it just started playing on my Launch Station and I'd never heard it before . . .
ok--must go to Genetics now . ..
Edit: wow . . . I feel intelligent now--I completely forgot that Dr. Tom had cancelled class for today since he wasn't going to be there--I got to the classroom and saw that no-one was there, then I remembered . . . *shakes head* it's a good thing Fisher Hall is next to my dorm--haha
gah . . . the Internet has been down in Seibert at least since 5pm--when I came back from dinner at 5:30, there was no Internet, but it could gone before that because I'd been out of my room since 3 . . . anyways, it's almost 1AM now, and I had to come down to the Seibert computer lab (which thankfully still does have the Internet) to check on something for my O.Chem exam for tomorrow (which I'm studying for right now) . . . I'm rather worried about this exam too, since it's all on mechanisms and I don't understand them very well . . .
Well, let's hope the Internet returns to Seibert tomorrow, I do well on my O.Chem. exam, I'll get a head start on writing my Christmas cards (I still don't have your addresses, Sara and Ian--would you like cards?), I will not be vanquished by the tricky turns in our Ballroom Club lesson, and the SAVE suite will be deserted so I can practise my pointé again . . . Cross your fingers for me? (especially for my exam!!) *crosses fingers and hopes all will go well*
I better get back up to my room so I can finish studying . . . (this has been a very welcome diversion)
Hmm . . . I'm thinking I should probably update, since I haven't done so in hmm .. . about a week? *hangs head and hits self with wet noodles* Noodles . . . I miss the caf having pasta everyday . . . oookay, *must* stop going on random tangents . . .
( week in rewind . . . (and fast forward--hehe) )
To-morrow is Thanksgiving break!! WOOT! (I still have my 8:15 US History class, but I'm going home, so it's alright *starts singing S&G's "American Tune"*) O.Chem was interesting today--in the middle of lecture, the big light bulb in the projector thingy blew out and made us all jump. My professor said something along the lines of "I guess you weren't supposed to have class today" . . . then continued teaching . . . My Genetics exam wasn't too bad, but I'm worried and think I messed the entire thing up because I was finished around 11 (the class is 10-12), and I finished about half an hour before anyone else, so I was paranoid and checked my answers at least 3 or 4 times . . .
I'm excited for this evening! Happy thing the first: Erin's going downtown with me at around 4ish--we're going to try to find the dance studio and I'm going to inquire about classes . . . I really want to take ballet/pointe again, but I'll have to see how much classes are and make sure they don't interfere with my school schedule (plus, I don't really want to be walking back to campus late at night, even though Selinsgrove is small for a college town . . .) *crosses fingers* Happy thing the second: Today is the first meeting/lesson of SU's Ballroom Dancing Club!! One of the physics profs is the advisor and we're learning the waltz today . . . I'm so excited--I've always wanted to learn how to ballroom dance! *bounces*
In other completely random news, I made a paper snowflake today . . . Because I Can!
I hope I'll be able to update a bit when I go home for Thanksgiving break tomorrow, but if not, have a Happy Thanksgiving, and I'll be back on Sunday! :D
According to Merriam-Webster, "Angst(n) : a feeling of anxiety, apprehension, or insecurity" Yup, that seems to apply . . .
So, my day definitely didn't start off on the right foot today (as if days had feet in the first place . . .) I totally overslept--not only did I miss my alarm, but I missed my roomie's alarm too . . . I woke up when I heard her closing the door to leave for class (we're in the same class--evil O. Chem.)--it sounded like she was trying to be all quiet so she wouldn't wake me up, but then she told me in class that she was making all kinds of noise so I would wake up (and apparently I yell at her when she tries to wake me up . . . definately didn't know that and apologised about five times) . . . so I had about 20 minutes to get ready for class, in which I managed to get dressed, print off the lecture notes, and make tea. However, I upset my travel mug and spilled almost all of my tea on the floor about 5 mintutes before class started . . . so I had to use all my tissues to try to sop it up (I basically just put them in the gigantic tea puddle) which wasn't good because I got a cold when I went home for break this past weekend . . . and on top of that, I didn't understand today's O.Chem. lecture AT ALL . . . we got our exams back from last Friday and I definitely did a lot worse than the first exam (I knew I was going to have a bunch of points taken off because I messed up two of the 10pt questions entirely, but I didn't think 'twould be *that* bad . . .) . . . then I stayed behind a few minutes to clean up my tea puddle, which thankfully Erin helped me with (*huggles Erin*) . . . now to work on Genetics for my exam on Friday so I don't fail that test too . . . :\
Urg . . . I’m studying for finals right now—Susquehanna decided to have a very odd last week of school: today was normal, but tomorrow (our last day of classes) is on a Friday schedule . . . Wednesday is our “Reading Day” and finals are on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Monday—yes, you did read that correctly. I have my Cell & Organsimal Bio. final at 8AM on Thurs. morning, Thought and Civilisation on Friday afternoon, General Chem. at 8AM on Sat. morning (what is it with my science finals both being at 8AM?) and my Spanish last test (not a final exam) at 11:30 on Sat.. . . then I get to go home on Sunday—yay!
‘Tis going to be quite odd going home though, since SU has become my second home—I’m REALLY going to miss my SU friends, but ‘twill be great to hang out with my friends from WHS (and my family) again—I guess ‘tis a bittersweet kind of thing . . . . speaking of which, I saw this nifty thing on one of my friends’ profiles that describes coming home quite well (I think, at least): http://www.geocities.com/glengaryfan/
Sometime tonight or tomorrow I have to type up a post about Spring Weekend, which was this past Sat. and Sun. (as in yesterday and the day before yesterday), but now I must return to the wonderful world of Cell Structure . . . . . I’m a bio. major, but I don’t much like the course as it’s all about cells and cell functions and such (like photosynthesis, respiration, and the like)---I don’t know . . . I guess you could say I’m more interested in the ecological aspect of the field—I want to go into zoology or marine biology . . . ok, back to studying . . . :\
and now to leave you with a quote (like Allegra has been doing
"I don't love studying. I hate studying. I like learning. Learning is beautiful
~Natalie Portman (I don't remember where I found that, but isn't it great
[do you guys like the new smaller font, or should I keep it the same size as I've been using? I wrote this in Word today because my computer's still being slightly evil, and 'tis a bit smaller than if I write it in here--Strike that (reverse it? hahahaha) I just realised that the font got smaller when I posted the entry--it became teensy, so I had to change it to my normal font size . . . and enough rambling for now . . . hehe . . .]
[10 points to whomever found my film reference ;)]
I don't think Chemistry likes me . . . it took me forever to understand what we talked about in class yesterday even after I read the chapter today . . . and then I had to do the problems . . . I'm not going to be able to finish it all tonight, but I have a plan: I'll finish up the section 1 problems, call it a night and wake up earlier tomorrow to finish reading the chapter . . . and finish the rest of the problems over the weekend?? We'll probably be covering the end of the chapter tomorrow in class, so I might understand it when I read it, but just in case I don't, my best friend is a chem major . . . she'll help me if I still don't understand it.
