le sigh

ugh…
I have to mow today. Which should be great. It’s cold, and my allergies haven’t stopped bugging me all damn week. The sneezing I can handle… the incredibly dry and itchy eyes, however, are annoying.

I have to study for my last psych test that needs to be taken by tomorrow. I’ll prolly do relatively ok. I bombed the last paper, it was submitted 5 minutes past the deadline, so it was a zero. It wasn’t finished, prolly only would have garnered me a 40 or 50% anyway, but it would have been better than a big fat null. She sent me an email saying that if I could verify my paper was submitted before the deadline she would accept it… but I don’t think there is a way I can do that, so it prolly will remain a zero. It’s my own fault, really. I should have not waited till the last few minutes to submit. Oh well. It’d be swell if she cut me some slack, especially seeing as how it’s only 1/2 a paper, and I can’t get a 100% anyway… but oh well.

I have a history exam starting the 28th. I can do a homework submitted today for a few points extra credit… we’ll see if I care later on. I think, since I didn’t majorly fuck up anything in history, that I’m still capable of a B. I think an A is not gonna happen, my tests have been Bs. (Well, 2 have, one was a D… oops). Homeworks were mostly done, I skipped one, not sure what happened to a second one, but there is no score for it. I’ll have to ask about that. I think I can manage a B on the last test, so that should give me a B for the year. I’m ok with that. I like history, but I never got really high grades in it… There’s something about the sheer memorization the tests make you do that I can’t get.

I don’t think the importance of history is what date this happened or which of four monarchs did not participate in the second crusade. I think the important parts are the underlying causes of things, the results, the general timeframes…. that sort of thing. That’s not the shit that’s usually on a test. A test is usually stupid shit that doesn’t matter. so… oh well.

My animation project is due thursday. I plan on working on it today. I have the idea… need to get started now. If it’s any good, I think I’ll post it. If it sucks… it will be suspiciously absent from the internet. ;) I’m hoping it’ll turn out ok. I got a 97 on my illustrator/flash animation, so that’s encouraging. It wasn’t much, so hopefully the 3d will work out ok. I’ve already taken the test for graphics. It’s a 60 with certain portions ungraded. I’m betting I’ll get a 70. I think. There are 2 that I got wrong that were right. (2-pts each) There were 2-4 that needed to be graded that I think I got right. so… I think that bumps the 60 to a 70 or 72 depending. I made a few mistakes, but the rest are really a matter of sucky questions. It’s things that I know, but I have no idea what the answer is that they are looking for. Sometimes the questions are missing words. Crap like that. So… oh well.

Math I have a test tomorrow. The final is monday. And thursday is our excel test. None of these should be an issue so long as I can get my calculator to do the things I need it to do. I need to find out if I’ll need to do regressions… if I do that is one more think I need to learn to get into my calc. I’m working on doing standard deviation… but I don’t really need to, because I can actually do them by hand. Sick, I know. But I can. The test tomorrow and the excel test should be no problem at all. So, I’m mainly set on that. If I get a B, it’d be a huge surprise. Considering that my only B in class was an 87 on my second test (outta 5) when I was sick and still came to take it anyway… I don’t think I have to worry.

Painting continues to be the hardest thing ever. ;) I have 2 paintings that I have to finish, one nearly done plus a few touch ups on the older ones and I must bring them in for a looksee. The still-life is complete, the landscape is so close that it could be brought in at any time, the paris copy is close enough that i’m not too worried about. So all that is left is my original surreal composition and the two that we’re working on now. I’m not sure if we have 3 or 4 classes left, I’ll have to ask. 4 would mean I’d have no problem at all, 3 would mean that I should be ok, tho I’ll work on the one nearly finished at home more than in class if that’s the case.

Otto has soccer today. I won’t be able to be there, it’s at 8, I won’t get home till 9. Oh well. I guess that means I won’t make them lose. It just seems like that’s always the case. I show up, they lose. I no show up, they win. They may not win when I’m not there, but they always lose when I am. I must be a bad luck charm.

I hate allergies. I think that’s my theme today… I hate allergies. UGH
