What’s Up? (12/9/13)

This blog has 50 followers now, which is a great statistic and all, except I know how willy-nilly I give out “follows” on WordPress, and I imagine that most of these followers are just looking for follow-backs. Except that I know some of you out there must be actual followers because you don’t actually write blogs, and some of you have liked and left comments on posts… so maybe there’s something cool happening here after all.

Continuing with the whole, life-not-on-fire business (which is a term I’m starting to like), I thought I’d write what my schedule looks like, in part so that I can finally see what’s due when, and in part so that you can see what kind of work load I’m facing.

Monday: Nothing’s due today, but free time should be used to complete things ahead of schedule.

Tuesday: Some meaningless assignment is due at 3PM from a horrible professor I wish I could forget, in a class that added very little to my communication-skills portfolio. (Is currently 60% complete as of this post). Tuesday should be spent completing assignments and studying for the might giant that is Wednesday.

Wednesday: The 3,000-4,000 story about Row House Cinema is due, along with a Podcast about the story, by 12PM. (Is currently at 3,500 words as of this post, but still needs a lot of work). The final story determines most if not all of my grade in that journalism class. Intro to Psychology final exam at 2PM; it can’t hurt my final grade which currently stands at a C, but it could raise it as high as a B. Wednesday should be spent in part on the two things due that day, and then after 3PM focus should shift to Thursday’s workload.

Thursday: A 2,000 word research paper about sonic branding is due by 12AM for my Consumerism course. (It currently stands at 1,000 words). This paper will not determine whether I pass or fail, but it will have a significant impact on the grade, though the professor seems to be an easy grader. Thursday should be spent working on Friday’s workload and airport preparation.

Friday: A 2,000 word revised edit of an existing 600-1,000 word paper is due by 10AM, and then a final exam based on this semester’s literature readings will take up my time until 11:30AM. Flight is at 5PM, so there is some backup time to pack and prepare for flight if I’m too busy to do these things on Thursday.

What’s Up? (7/3/2013)

Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Oh my, if that game isn’t the most pleasant, care-free thing ever. No wonder the local Gamestop and Best Buy were sold out: this game could probably be enjoyed by just about anybody with a soul. It’s been less than 24 hours since Mayor Sandwich arrived in the town of New Deli, but it’s been a really good time so far. I caught lots of cicadas, one fruit beetle, and one butterfly. I dug up some fossils, and shook trees to collect cherries. Really the things I’m doing should be boring, should feel like a waste of time, should feel trivial – but I love every minute of the game so far, and every little step in Animal Crossing feels rewarding.

In other news: I was technically a day late with the Michael Bolton review I suppose. I published it at 9 PM EST but WordPress follows Greenwich Mean Time so,  my music review was published on a Wednesday instead of a Tuesday – totally screwing up the Tuesday/Thursday music review schedule and…. who really cares? Nobodies itching to read more about Michael Bolton, and I’m really not looking forward to hearing more Michael Bolton – but I must press on.

That’s it for today really. Animal Crossing is good, life is good in general, going to a party in about an hour – and I have to subject myself to the aural exercise that is listening to a Michael Bolton album.
