[Life] Eaten by Life
Current status report: Still not dead yet. I've promised my lovely indigoskynet an update, so here's how I'm doing in class:

Accounting: I've had a terrible habit all semester of leaving assignments until the last minute. And I had to arrange to take two of my tests late -- one because I missed the deadline, one because I wasn't ready by the deadline. But I'm doing alright in spite of that. The five tests that have been graded so far average to an 89.7%. One more test needs to be graded, then I take my final next week. I think I can manage a 3.5 if I try hard enough. A 4.0 is mathematically possible, but I don't know how likely I'll be to manage it.

Business Law: This one I've been doing much better in. The four tests we've had, in order: tied for 3rd best in the class, tied for 1st, 2nd, 1st. Better yet, our teacher has an arrangement wherein you can miss or skip one of the five tests, and you receive a grade based on what you got for the other four. So I can (and will!) skip the final test that's coming up on Tuesday and still get a 4.0 overall.

I've been planning to get back into the habit of posting here (and on my Twitter account, as well). I know, nothing you haven't heard before. But I'm going to give it a shot, at least. To that end, how about we revisit an old classic, Five Good Things?

1. Took the sixth exam for accounting, and did fairly well, near as I can tell.
2. Finally made myself write and send an e-mail I'd been procrastinating on for far too long.
3. Got several bills paid off.
4. Purchased a Christmas gift for my mother.
5. My brother's having issues with his World of Warcraft account, so he's playing on my account instead and helping me level a character I was stalled on. (Mind you, all my alts count as "stalled", being as my account has been idled for months.)

I didn't know you'd succumbed to WoW - a while back, it seems, yes? Do you play Horde, or Alliance? :)
truebluespark From: truebluespark Date: December 7th, 2008 06:44 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yep, I've been playing on and off for quite a while -- mostly off, though, recently. And I play a bit of both; my two highest alts are an Alliance rogue and a Horde priest.

Whoa, there you are. Hi again. Glad you're still out there.
truebluespark From: truebluespark Date: December 7th, 2008 07:27 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks! I've been pretty busy between classes and work, but hopefully I'll be lifting the veil of silence a bit more from here on.

*hugs* glad to see you're still alive.

I had the bad habit of leaving some stuff till the last minute too. And spent 9 hours debugging and coding. BLECH.

I'm proud of you for taking classes though.

*hugs* Thank you! Yeah, it's hard to keep motivated sometimes, especially when I think, "oh, there's plenty of time to do this later". And then suddenly I'm all out of later.

And I'm proud of you too! I know I don't comment much, but I've been really impressed at how hard you're working in your own classes.

Meh, if I wasn't working my ass off all the time I wouldn't know what to do with myself. So it's all good.

Glad to see you back. Stick around this time eh? Jason and I miss you and Indi.

Yay WoW. What kind of character do you play?
truebluespark From: truebluespark Date: December 7th, 2008 07:25 pm (UTC) (Link)
My favorite alts are the 38 rogue and 30 priest, although I've played around with every class at least once or twice.

I didn't enjoy the first character I made so I just got an Undead Warlock. She's almost a lvl 21. So far I am really liking it.

Hi hi hiiiiii~! :D

I encouraged you to post because you've been doing so awesome at school and should be proud and want to share it :)

Though it seems WoW is more interesting to your flist than the grades.

Oh well; either way, it's good.

Heyo! Glad to hear from you, and good to hear you're doing well.

Sounds like you did snag my old Business Law professor, that grading scheme sounds exactly like what he gave. Older man, looks on the edge of retirement, works as a defense lawyer (if I recall correctly), full of anecdotes? (Has he told about the one where the woman got off from her ex-husband's debts because of the anachronistic Illinois law releasing the wife from the husband's debts?) That guy was great.

You take care, and do keep posting.

(Oh, and had a chance to play KH yet?)
truebluespark From: truebluespark Date: December 9th, 2008 04:26 am (UTC) (Link)
Thanks! Yeah, things are going fairly well these days. And I intend to keep it up for a while, too.

Haha, that's the guy! Yep, he told us that one, and a whole host of other cool stories as well. This class's been really interesting! The last period is tomorrow; I'll be sticking around only long enough for attendance points and to get a copy of the last exam.

(A little! Haven't had much time for it, but I've gotten to... I think day two of the Destiny Islands. Riku solidly whipped me in the race, ehehe.)

YOU'RE ALIVE

Looks like things are going well for you overall--especially the grades. Keep it up! (especially with the posting, I see you have done two days in a row)

...also, what server are you on for WoW? Sorry, gotta ask. :)
truebluespark From: truebluespark Date: December 13th, 2008 02:40 am (UTC) (Link)
IMPROBABLY, I AM alive and slow, apparently, but alive nonetheless.

Yep, aside from a few things, I'm pretty happy with how the semester has gone. I ended up managing 96% on test #6 (although that was after a curve -- apparently everyone had trouble with it), so I'm just waiting on yesterday's final to be graded. As for the posting, I plan to! Probably won't be managing daily for a while, but some is still better than none, of course!

Haha, naturally. :) My main alts (and the only ones who really see much play) are on Draenor. I'd be up for starting a new one on another server, if I could find the free time to play more. Which is as yet unknown.
