You wait and wait, and when it happens, you feel sad.

Pic COMPLETELY unrelated.
My apologies on the epic lack of postings. New reviews will be posted soon. I'm working on a two-part review for Lufia and Lufia II for SNES, one of which is one of the best RPGs of all time and both of which have the best RPG story of all time (opinion, of course). The first one will be posted sometime tomorrow, and the second soon after.

But not quite yet. I've been completely preoccupied with the metric dickton of homework I've been assigned as well as studying for the few midterm exams I've had. On the bright side, all that hard work has paid off. I have a 101% in my C++ course, a 100% in my probability/stats course, ~95% in my literary analysis course, and probably around 85% in my micro-architecture course. I'm a little dissatisfied with my micro grade, but hopefully it'll pop back up into the A range by the time this semester is over.

I'm really happy I came to this university. I've learned a lot of really cool stuff, especially in the world of programming/computer science in general. I've also enjoyed a lot of the 'required' liberal arts-type courses, as most I've taken have focused on literature. It's afforded me the opportunity to learn a few programming languages as well as check out some phenomenal books I'd otherwise never read like Ragtime, The Things They Carried, and The Road.

It's not often I write about my own personal life, but it gives me a chance to find out more about my followers in turn. I'm curious, if any of you are going to college/were in college, what did you major/minor in? What were the most valuable things you learned? How long did you go for? Leave a comment and let me know.


  1. Studying CS, and, just learning basic stuff and GE's like physics n maths. Most fun I've had was a UNIX class and teaching myself pythons. Everyone has a gift, you just have to work on it to make it valuable.

  2. wow! you must be a genius! haha
    but seriously, congrats on the grades.

  3. I just got back into the swing of things too and its picking up nicely

  4. Nah, you probably have 100% in English because we get to drop 3 quizzes.

    Hey, I'm totally leaving you a comment right now.

  5. School Work envelopes all hours of the day this time of year. :D

  6. nice work here... btw, I have Hayden Panetierre bubbled on Enhanced by MS Paint :P

  7. 101%? Gotta love extra credit.

    Was in college for English Liberal Arts. There was some fun to be had, but I feel it wasn't worth the money I put in. And I went way too long for a 2 year degree. I did learn logic better and how to cook more comfortably thanks to the respective classes I took as optional.

  8. whoa you smart. what school do you go to?

  9. Northern Michigan University. Not the most prestigious school, sure, but still has a damned good computer science department.
