Ner's Random Musings on a life of interesting insights

a world of interesting factoids about nothing and everything

I just finished the last in the installments of the Artemis Fowl Books. The Eternity Code was great. If you've read the first two, definitely read this one. I'm kinda glad that I finished though, not only because its kind of one of those real warm fuzzy feeling books, but because it'll make it so I have no reading material in class. Reading material in class is good for when you don't have exciting things to learn or when class is excessively boring, but lately, my classes have been getting more challenging so I feared it was time that I finish my book soon.

I went to class this morning, design class. He wanted to do Jaws scripting with me after lunch time, and when a professor actually wants to script jaws with you, you do it because well, not many professors want to help you script things. We got a costing application working. I hope that it works on my computer, but it'll definitely make my life one heck of a lto easier as it comes down to figuring out costs of plants. Its much easier to put in some numbers into the computer and have it spit out a cost than it is to look up on charts the number in question. Again, boring to you non chemical engineering types, exciting for us ner(d)s.

It was depressing today, not because I felt sad, but because it was such a beautiful day outside and I had to spend it inside the impersonal walls of Bell Enginerring Center. Jong was his usual, and I *reall* hope that I can figure something out with him. Amrud, the guy hose going to help me, should be adequate rather than wasting my stress level and energy arguing with the guy. I don't want to get a 100% in this class and I don't think he realizes that. Maybe I just don't understand the guy.

Anyway, must go so I can get started on this lab report early, what a concept eh? And then hopefully I'll go to bed early as I think I need te sleep. Maybe I should take more vitamins or something, find some way to increase my energy and make me able to stay awake longer.

As a final, I'm really enjoying the new found accessibility of my phone. Being able to dash a text message out from pretty much anywhere I am really rocks. ITs like email on the go for real, awesome stuff. MOre later.

Isn't it both a blessing and a curse that adaptive tech lets us read for pleasure in class and no one can tell? A friend told me the other day that I appeared to have slept through class. My response, "No, I wasn't asleep, I just wasn't reading the book of short stories that I have been reading during class."

I usually take notes in class so people never really know whether or not I'm totally paying attention in class. My eyes are totally normal so I keep them open all the time and appear busy whether or not I'm reading or not, very cool I might add.

The class where this happened is a cool but rambly lit class not too conducive to taking notes. Of course, I don't take many notes in general.

I take engineering classes all the time, so taking notes is sometimes necessary. I sometimes wish I could take fluffy lit classes, it'd be nice.

I added you to my friends list if that's ok. I'm all about reading different points of views from different corners of the nation :).

There is nothing "fluffy" about Donte and Dostoyephsky (spelled fenetically). smile But yes, its a whole different ball game from engeneering.

Feel free to friend and read away, though I doubt I have much of interest in my lj.

That type of literature is very much not fluffy for sure. I'd lose it for sure.

Are you saying that people don't have any interest in your journal or do *you* not have any interest in your journal. I'm confused :P. Though people don't always comment to my journal, I know people read it and my journal is just there for me to keep a record or what I do. People reading is just a cool biproduct.

I'm saying that I don't know why people have interest in my journal. The mundane happenings of my life, plus random tangents, plus random rough drafts of poetry. But I find the experience of keeping the journal to be useful, so I write on.
