"I want to break free"

So sue me; I like that commercial.

I'm sitting here looking at the pasta stuff that Raleigh's mom gave me, and it looks really good - the only thing is, it's hard to deal with boiling water and cooking pasta and stuff with a microwave and the little heating thingie that Mums gave me for making tea. =/ I'll figure it out eventually, though, cuz this stuff looks good, and it'd be a welcome relief from doing work.

I should probably go eat sometime. *sighs* I don't like eating. (I'm not anorexic, dammit; I still eat, just that most of the time, it's a necessity thing, not a desire. Sometimes, I like eating.)

UVA mail is just a load of spam from people who think I want to know things that I don't. And occasionally something important from a professor. x_x I came back to 28 messages from this weekend. *sighs* Like I really care! Grah. Why do we have to use UVA mail? Why can't we have important stuff send directly to our real email addresses?

Anyway, onward to random stuff:

Got a headache again. *sighs* Really need to drink more water. That's probably not the only part of it, but I'm sure it doesn't help that I don't drink much. =/

"small writing assignments - like this one" This one is 10 pages!! @.@ Small?! dammit. >.< I'm going to die. xP Man, I'm afraid to see what a medium one is.. or a large one! "Have 60 pages written." "For when?" "Hmm.. well, I don't want to push you too hard - how's Friday for everyone?" "x_x"

"How many of you are finding the research interesting?"
"... -one person raises their hand-"
"Okay. And how many of you are finding the research completely, mind-numbingly tedious and boring?"
"*raises hand, along with a whole heck of a lot of the rest of the class*"

He says to switch questions to something more exciting, but it's the research that I find tedious and boring; I hate doing research, and I hate writing papers (unless I can write something fun - not necessarily about something fun; it's just the style of writing). Though, I am going to switch topics, from how to make money developing new software, to the problem-solving process through new programming and whatnot.

"I have 2 jobs and 4 kids and teach in 3 different places. But I have no dogs." XP Busy busy.

"Have some coffee before you come to class."

edit [calc stuff]: "The overall class average was 63.6%
If we disregard scores below 45%, the class average for the test was 71%"

I got an A with the 88, and I'm fairly confident that I belong in the class. :P Go me!

... I have a quiz tomorrow morning. Hrm. I should probably study. (Or figure out what the heck it's on, anyway. It's a short one - only one day of material, instead of 3.)

"If the test average for those who stay with APMA111 turns out to be about 72%, the following gradelines would be in the ballpark for this first test:

86 - 100 A
73 - 85 B
60 - 72 C
50 - 59 D
Less than 50 F"

The 88 is the first 10% of my grade for calc, which isn't too bad - I've only lost 1.2 points from the final grade. This'll probably be the easiest test of the year, though.

I hope everyone else fails and makes my A really easy to achieve. XP I know that's mean, but still. I'm a selfish bastard. :D

I need to clean off my friends list sometime. And I think the shades one was pretty accurate. XP

edit: Yeah, the corn here isn't as good as at the place where Trin works. And the vegetable lo mein would probably be better warmer, but .. it doesn't seem like it'd improve all that much. x_x

I had breakfast with Mummy today. :D

edit [more calc stuff]: Oh yeah, I was going to post this too - The 12 points that I missed are made up of the 7 I knew I missed because I'd never heard of linear approximation, and the other 5 were actually from a typical Kevin mistake - I misread "1" as "-1" and gave the wrong answer, cuz I'm retarded. :P
