I think I’m going to just let you guys assume if I don’t update often in a month, school is kicking my butt, and not apologize for lack of updates every entry. 😉 The truth is very little besides school is going on in my life, and I don’t want to be that boring guy who writes about school every entry.
Having said that, school is a large chunk of my life so writing about it is to an extent unavoidable. Balance is key; I just need to write more content. My recaps will hopefully pick back up in a week or so. Finals are next week, and I will have a small break before Summer classes begin. I actually recently started the first Animorphs book out of nostalgia (Amazon recently released the series for Kindle and I couldn’t help myself), so I’ll be adding it to my series of recaps soon. Animorphs is frakkin amazing; if you have not read the series yet, you need to pick it up, no matter how old you are. I actually never finished the series. My plan is to restart it from the beginning and actually read it to the end.
My birthday was last Wednesday. I had work and school on my actual birthday, so it was just alright, but the overall week was great. I went to dinner with good friends on the Saturday before my birthday, and then a few of us went out for drinks after dinner. It was a great night.
This past weekend, Josh and I went to Atlanta with our friends Jay and Ryland to see the Georgia Aquarium. I’ve been wanting to go to that aquarium forever, and Josh decided to take me for my birthday. The aquarium was awesome, and it was just great to get away for a night. Jay and Ryland got us a hotel room for both of our birthdays, so we spent some time exploring Atlanta. We came back Sunday afternoon. I had a lot of fun. This whole week was more than I could ever ask for, and I owe it all to Josh and the amazing people in my life. I love my friends.
I can’t believe I only wrote one entry in February. So sorry about that, guys. February kicked my butt. Well, I guess school kicked my butt in February. I finished one of my courses, Math for Elementary Education I this past Monday. It geared up soon after my last entry and went full-throttle until the end of the month. I got through it, however, and I got through it with an A. I’m pretty proud of myself.
My lowest grades were the project grades, and they were group projects (read: the devil).
We just got our test grades back from our last Math for Elementary Education test, and I made a 93. Some of my classmates in my group text are going, “Yes! I made a 87!” and are getting comments like, “Woohoo!” and “You go, girl!” and meanwhile, I’m sitting here thinking, “Wonder what I missed. I’ve got to do better. There were just four points between me and a B.” Don’t worry, I definitely do not tell my classmates that I’m (mildly) disappointed about a 93.
During the first week of Spring classes, my American Literature instructor asked me what I made in my last English class. I told him I made a 99. He said that means I had to have made a high A on every test and essay, and I probably wouldn’t be able to do that in his class. We have had one test and one essay so far, and I made a 100 and a 96 respectively. Looks like I’m doing what he said I probably wouldn’t be able to do; however, his comment gave me anxiety. I stressed about both of these assignments and worried while I awaited the grades, even though I knew I had done my best.
Hey guys, some updates have piled up, so I decided to just list them all in a new entry.
The About page has been restructured. I moved information on the website up and information on myself down. I want visitors to be able to figure out what this website is about pretty quickly, and with it being below the information on me, it was kind of hidden before.
I worked recaps into the website description because although I didn’t plan on it, they have become a major feature of this website. I have thoroughly enjoyed recapping Fear Street books, Goosebumps books, and most recently Captain Planet episodes. I feel like I’m reliving my childhood on this website through these series, and it’s a lot of fun. I’m going to keep going. They each have pages in the main navigation that introduce the series and link to all of the recaps.
I added anyone who has commented more than once to my Blogroll on the Links page. If anyone I don’t have linked would like to exchange links, let me know! I would love to network with more bloggers.
