I just printed out the last take-home final and just have to get it in to the Anthropology office by 10am tomorrow morning and I'm all done! *WHEW!* I am SO glad this semester's over!

I'll post more updates later, although I'm also going to be putting in a lot of overtime at work over the next 3 or so weeks until it all starts over again. It's been an insane past few months!

Wow!

Have I died and gone to heaven?;) Not only is this exactly what I've wanted since I first discovered Guitar Hero, but THEY HAVE ASIA ON IT!!!!!!! Woohoo! Heat of the Moment of course, but at least it IS Asia.

Oh, and Guitar Hero 2 for the XBox 360 came today from Red Octane (actually yesterday but I got it out of the manager's office this morning). That goes with the Xbox 360 Elite Amazon sent me on Tuesday:).

What a way to celebrate finals being over (as of Tuesday)!

That's the sound of me falling over from exhaustion after the last week of classes. Finals start next week, but by some really bizarre stroke of luck I only have 2 finals coming up, one for 3d modeling/Maya and one for my MIDI class, both practical type finals that don't require studying. Don't ask me how I got off so easily when I'm taking 17 credits!

It's been a rough week, though. My guitar final was Tuesday (and the final quiz for my game design class). Plus it got really cold here and I still had an air conditioner in my window and got cold and have felt sick for the past few days. I may leave work and head home soon since I feeling like I'd fading pretty fast now. I get to work a lot more hours next week at least!

They still haven't posted official grades yet by my Calculus 3 teacher said he already knows I got at least a D. All I need is a D- to not have to retake it. *WHEW!* My GPA is definitely going to drop this semester but I'll just have to make sure I bring it back up in the future.

I also may be looking at a slight shift in majors:

It's not approved yet but they're hoping to have it available in the fall. I'll still be here and everything I'm taking next semester applies to both majors anyway. And it's STILL a Computer Science degree. And it means no foreign language requirement (Yay! No Spanish 3 after all!), less math required (I'd be done with math after Linear Algebra next semester instead of still needing Probability), and a few other classes I need now won't be required anymore, and they'd be replaced by a bunch of game classes (several of which I've already taken for my minor). I think this could work out really well!

I suspect I'll probably go for the masters too when I'm done (assuming I can afford it at that point):

*WHEW!*

*Gasping for breath as I come up for air*

Well, my last final was yesterday so I'm FINALLY done! I now get around 4 nice, relaxing weeks of JUST working full time. Damn, I needed a break.

Now I just have to wait to find out my grades. Unfortunately the calculus final didn't go too well (there was just too much to remember and I forgot a lot even after being up most of the night before studying) and since I blew the first midterm I don't know if I passed the class. I did really well on Midterm 2 and most of the quizzes, at least, so there's at least some hope. I found out all I need is a D- to not have to retake it, which is all I care about at this point. Did I mention how much I hate math?;)

Well, I knew the 4.0 GPA my first semester was too good to last. And so much for honor societies. That last one e-mailed me at the last minute that they found out they could only admit Computer Science/Computer Engineering majors, NOT just Computer Science ones, and the Computer Science one they recommended had a web site that hadn't been updated since 2002 and is now giving 403 forbidden errors, so my guess is they're totally defunct.

I also have no clue how I did on the final I took yesterday, but then I've learned over the semester that it's not so much a case of knowing what we did as knowing how to read the teacher's mind. Hopefully I learned enough of that from the midterm to get by on this one, but I won't know for sure until I see my grade. But I won't get into that here since I still have to take at least 2-3 more required classes with this same teacher:(.

Even the one class I KNOW I did really well in (Electrical Engineering) hasn't posted the final grades yet.:( And that was the first final I took.
