I got a......
on my College Algebra test!!!
As I was expecting, I lost 4 points for not stating my restrictions on the rational equation. Then I lost 1 point for getting one of the matching questions wrong.
So I would have gotten a 95 (still an awesome grade) if I hadn't gotten the bonus questions right. I'm so proud of myself. I haven't gotten anything less than a 100 in either of my classes so far!! Knock on wood. I hope I can keep this up!

Yeah :-) Ugh :-(

I got a 100 on my Interior Design test tonight!!

I'm so excited and proud of myself. I really wasn't nervous about this test. Last week the teacher gave us all the answers for the questions on the test so that studying would be minimal. To me it was a piece of cake. The teacher even let us study for the first 30 minutes of class. I didn't need that time to study but I guess some of my classmates did.

I'm a STRESSED out mess!!
My parents have the most ancient computer known to mankind and the dang thing doesn't work most of the time. My laptop isn't even all that reliable some times either. We got out of class an hour early tonight so I decided it would be wise for me to get a head start on writing some of my analysis' for my Principles and Elements Notebook. We usually leave my parents computer turned on because it takes FOREVER to start up. I noticed that it was turned off so I pushed the on button and decided to get ready for bed while the stupid fossil started up. When I was done getting ready I went into the computer room and the computer was doing all sorts of weird stuff and making noises. I called my dad upstairs to see if he could fix the problem.
I really couldn't tell you what the problem was.
I had a heated conversation with my dad about the importance of me having a reliable computer while I'm in college.
(They've already had to purchase a new printer which I hope arrives by the end of the week so I can print my papers for my project).
We've ended up rebooting the entire system which I guess means we are going to lose EVERYTHING!!!
This really sucks cause I've already put in several hours of this project just on the computer alone. I'll have to start over on the entire written portion of my project. I'm not a happy camper.
I just hope that my dad can fix the computer and that I'll be able to work on my project all day Wednesday like I originally planned!!
Please pray that everything will work out so I can get this project done and turned in on time. And that printer better arrive by Wednesday!!!

Did I Finish My Project?

I worked on my project all afternoon on Thursday until I ran out of my double sided tape. I was too lazy to head to the store to buy some more so I called it a day. Friday morning I got up early to get more tape. I decided to be smart so I bought 2 rolls just to be safe. Around lunch time I ran out of tape again!!!! Really? I'd already used 3 rolls of tape? I headed back to the store and bought 2 more rolls!!! I think 5 rolls should get me through the project....at least I hope cause each roll was $5 a piece.
After working a 8:30 am- 10:00 pm shift yesterday, I was beat and didn't want to do anything when I got home. I was going to work on it today until I realized that I needed to study for my Interior Design test I have tomorrow.
I totally plan on having this project done BY Wednesday this week. The only thing I need to do is write an analysis for about 50 different rooms I've compiled from magazines. That shouldn't take too long....hope I don't get writers block ;-p

I live, eat, sleep, and breathe school anymore these days!!
I don't really have much time for anything but school and work. If I'm not in class or working, I'm working on homework.
I'm doing pretty well in my College Algebra class (knock on wood). So far we've turned in one homework assignment and I got a 100. We've also done 2 group/class work assignments that I've also received 100's on.
Today I had my first test and I'm hoping that I did well. My nerves always get the best of me when I take a test but I just tried to relax and allow myself to take as much time as I needed. She pulls all the test questions from the problems we work in the book but some of them looked foreign to me. I think she lied because I work ALL the problems in the book. I know I won't get a 100 because I forgot to write my restrictions on the rational equation. *Sigh* I remembered as I was driving home.
The teacher gives us 5 bonus questions for each test and she gives them to us a week before the test. The bonus questions are hard but they are worth 2 points a piece totaling a +10 on the test if you get them all right (no partial credit). I worked all 5 problems by myself and had the tutor look over my work. I'm proud to announce that I got them all right and received a +10 on my test. I'll probably get my test back next Tuesday!
I hope it's an "A!"
I started my Interior Design class last week and the teacher isn't taking it slow. Our first test is next Monday AND she assigned two projects we are working on back to back. Originally both projects were going to be due on the 4th of October but she noticed that the majority of the class was stressing and she eased a bit. Now one of the projects has been turned into a group project and the due date has been extended. Yeah!!! The other project is still due on the 4th and it is taking forever. I really didn't think it would take that long but it's so time consuming. My plan is to have the project finished by bedtime Sunday night but I'm beginning to think that goal is impossible. We shall see, I guess!
Not only is it taking a lot of time but the cost is insane. I've already spent $115 on this project alone! I have a feeling this class is going to be more expensive than that dang drawing class was.
Overall I'm enjoying my classes but they are really hard and I'm exhausting myself trying to get "A's" in both.

What Now?

Dear Faithful readers of my blog,
I must apologize for dragging you into and possibly boring you with my personal life and boy drama! This is my blog where I can write about whatever I choose and unfortunately for you you get to read about my problems since I have nowhere else to go with my thoughts!! Read on if you must.
On Tuesday I posted that I was leaning more towards getting with Brandon than Carlos. Today...I'm leaning towards Carlos!!
Crazy, huh?
Trust me....I know!!!
Carlos texted me again today and told me how much he missed me and was thinking of me. He also sent me a text stating that everything was falling into place and he still wants to be with me. We didn't discuss anything because he didn't want to jinx the situation. ;-p
Now I'm extremely confused and don't know what to do, yet again.
I'm not asking for advice but I needed to express myself.
Only time will tell!

What do these numbers mean to you?
Probably nothing!
To me....these numbers are the combination for the lock I had for my dance locker Freshman year of High School!!!

On my first day of work at Palais Royal I was assigned a lock and locker. It was kinda stressful trying to memorize my employee number(s) and a lock combination but I got it by the end of the day. BUT for some reason I ALWAYS put 35-4-10 in my lock before I realize it isn't the right combo. I tried really hard to think why these 3 numbers kept coming to me and then I realized it was an old combo from the high school days. I can't believe that I actually remember that combo. I don't remember any of the other combos I had through the locker years but that one. I think it's kinda funny. Everyday I have to remind myself of the combo I'm actually using these days. What ever happened to that lock? I think I left it on my employee locker when I left Burlington Coat Factory back in 2005.

Caught Off Guard

Since the beginning of the year I've been going through this personal struggle of
"Who do I choose? Brandon or Carlos?"
Carlos has put me through a personal hell and I'm not quite sure why he is so important to me anymore. We don't talk as much as we used to and I'm actually OK with that.
Brandon and I have been talking a lot lately about our plans of when I get to Atlanta and I'm really getting excited.
To be honest, Carlos really hasn't been on my mind much these last few weeks. About 2 weeks ago he contacted me asking if I would lend him $300. I told him I didn't have the money and that was the last I heard from him....until today.
Ya see....I've been leaning more towards Brandon since he is actually taking some action towards getting with me. It really surprised me when he asked if I would fly to Atlanta to spend a weekend with him. To me that is some serious stuff cause I don't think he would have suggested it and offered to PAY if he wasn't interested.
What has Carlos done for me?
He broke up with me because he didn't want to have a long distance relationship. Then he contacts me periodically through the year to tell me that he misses me and hasn't been with anyone since we broke up and yahdah yahdah yahdah!!
*So I'm working on some algebra when I get a text that startled me from my deep algebraic thought. It was a text from Carlos, "I miss you"
I haven't heard from him since I declined to give him money. I even tried communicating with him via text just last week and he never responded...twice. So I was caught a little off guard when I got a text from him stating that he missed me.
Now usually when I get a text like that from him I respond with, "I miss you too" and wrought like that. I wasn't feeling it today though. He avoided me and never texted me back last week when I tried. He then got sad and texted, "....I said I missed you and you didn't care...You must have a man."
Really? I mean Really?
He's not my boyfriend anymore and HE broke up with me. It's none of his business if I'm with someone else.
Needless to say I didn't tell him anything about Brandon....and I don't plan on it.
I told him that I'll always care about him and have his best wishes at heart. He was happy with that and ended his text with, "thinking of you."
I mean, that's sweet and all but it seems like he has a turn on/off switch. One minute he misses me and wants me back and then I don't hear from him for weeks on end.
I can't wait for this Atlanta trip and it can't come soon enough. I'm really anxious to see if Brandon and I have some chemistry left over from 7 and half years ago.
I'm getting sick of this drama!*

117 Hours

After today I've worked a total of 117 hours since my last day off (which was on the 17th of August).
No wonder I'm so tired.
Luckily I was able to get both my jobs to give me tomorrow off. I wish I could say that I'm doing nothing but relaxing tomorrow BUT I'll most likely be working on Algebra. At least I can sleep in and nap when needed.
