Rain, snow, hail, snow, rain, and then snow

All in one day. :)

This was like two or so days back. I slept though most of it, but my sister couldn't stop herself from waking me up to let me know, then on my way home from my class on Wednesday, yes it was Wednesday, I found more snow an slush outside, so I took the train home instead of the bus.

It was kinda hard to walk out there for me. I need shoes with grips.

Either way. I did it. I left the house. I went to school without having a class to attend, and I worked on my Architecture Detailing home work. After I spent about 30 or so mins walking through BestBuy looking for, and buying stuff that came up to about $42.

I got two things that were on sale, a 4 gig thumb drive. I've trying to install a free OS on one of my busted laptops. I shouldn't really say busted. It moves very slowly, but I don't know if it's a hardware or software related, then the screen is really smashed, so I can't really think of it as not being busted. :)

The other on sale I got was a wireless mouse. They have a few of them on sale at the moment. Just because Nika attached another mouse to my laptop, and I got use to using it and it now seems to have this odd jumping or 'letting go of things' bug. I think the cord might be damaged a bit.

Then I got rechargeable batterers for it and to replace the ones I can't find. :( I had AAA ones too. I haven't a clue where they have gone. I'm going to need a little place where they all go along with my charger.

I also picked up a marker because the keys on the keyboard for the desktop has lost some of it's letters. I just looked down and I see that they are rubbing off already. I couldn't find white, so I got this metallic coloured one. Oh well. I'll put it one again later.

Well we had no school, like I said, so that didn't really push me out of the apt as early as I would have liked. It also doesn't help that I was up way too early. Actually I meant way too late. I was up until after 4am. If not 6. Either way, I made it there like and hour and half before closing.

Because of the 'sketching' I did before in Tuesday class, I got most of it marked up and I got most of my guide lines in for my lettering. I'm suppose to go in today a few hours before my class to finish it up and start something else. I hope I can leave on time today.

Now the class that was postponed is being held today, at the normal time. One person forgot and showed up yesterday. I'm not sure how many will be there today. So it may be a small class today.

I have a lotto ticket for the power ball. I had one from earlier and didn't get anything. I don't really expect to win. We all hope to win of course, but I don't really expect to. I'll be happy with almost winning and getting a few $1000's. :)

Ok, my sister had dropped some stuff here for me to bag, so I'll go do that after I set up my autio book to play and wash my hands.

Later. :)

testing, one, two, three, testing..

(That didn't last long. Ok, I have to find another way to get that to work for me)

This is purely a test.

Ok, that first one didn't work...Let's see if this does.

It does.

Now I just have to work on a smaller size.


Guess I have to blog now.

Well, week 5 has just finished for me at school. So I've done my two exams. Two weeks back we had a quiz for the exam I had tonight. And a week ago we had our 5th week exam a week early for my auto cad 2 class. It was only afterwards did I found out that it was just worth a lousy 10 % of our over all grade.

I'm once again the unofficial TA for the computer class which has now made me shoe in be the one to work with, on my side of the room, for when we are given our projects. And that lovely thing will be 50% of our grade. Great.

As for the class that I had tonight. I consider it good so far. It's my estimating 1 class. I wish that I had studied more for the quiz, which would have helped me more for the exam, but I put a .. good... decent...go at studying. I feel like I knew just about all the answers except part the last one, unlike my quiz where I felt like kicking myself for not knowing so much.

There is one part that I wasn't all that sure about in the exam, but even now I can't bring myself to looking up the answer because I can't change the answer I gave him. I'm such a chicken.

I like my first class of the week. I was abit upset at myself for always saying that I couldn't draw, and it seemed that I just needed to try. Alot, with some encouragement. Which I got none of last semester in my Intro to Design class. Which I'm sure he'll say wasn't his job.

And that brings me to my Tuesday class. My detailing class. I have the same teacher again from my intro to design class. I knew he was teaching this class, but when the classes I planed to take were in conflict I had to pick something else. At the time, I thought this was fine. I so forgot he was teaching it. I have been kicking myself since the week before class stared.

He is ... I can't mentally survive him two classes in a row. I knew that when he told me what his other class was. I was going to take it next semester. And now I have two classes that I have to do drawings for. I don't think he hates me yet, but this has made me think of asking what my other classes will be about before I pick them. You know, giving myself a bit more time to think about things I didn't know.

I should manage to live through this semester. I thought about dropping the class 3 out of the 5 times we have had classes. But I'm still there.

I'm thinking of going out tomorrow and or Saturday. For what? To track down a Duane Reade that has as soap that they have on sale in stock. :)
