I say, "all the way"~~
Justin Timberlake's new album is poppin'~
I also can't wait to hear Avril Lavigne's new single coming out in the coming weeks.
Sorry for the neglect, my lovely blog. I haven't had much to say (and my follower number for this thing has been stagnant for...ever...not that I care all that much about it. Just sayin'). I guess my lack of entries shows how much is going through my mind intellectually. I did pretty mediocre in one of my classes, so I was expecting a high C or low B in it. I'm pretty disappointed in that because I had that professor in the quarter prior. But then again, it's pretty much my fault because I didn't do any of the readings or used any quotes in my papers AT ALL. I'm totally having SUPER senioritis. I was also super scared of checking my grades because of my political analysis class which consisted of only homework, a midterm, and huge final which determines my final grade. I did all my homework and if any of them was NOT done by a step-by-step guide to doing any statistical analysis, then I most likely did it wrong. My midterm, I pretty much failed. We got to grade them ourselves and I gave myself a 68 out of 100 on it. Our final was basically a huge statistical research paper to prove if your hypothesis was right or wrong. I think I did a good job at attempting to show that I learned in my professor's class, but I don't know. In the end, I gathered the balls to check my grade late Friday night/ Saturday. Once I got to the "my grades" part of the student services site, I'm always confronted with my GPA and noticed it didn't change much, so my grades were not too bad. I looked to see what I got in both my classes and to my surprise, I found that I got a B- in both of them. Whew~~~~ *wipes sweat and huffs a puff of smoke*
I'm not blessed with the ability to excel in academics so my GPA isn't that special. I've been able to keep a 3.0 since I've transferred to that university though, so it's an accomplishment within itself (for me anyway). All my days of working in the afternoon, going to class at night with heavy red eyes, and sleeping well into lunch time the next day...ah~....continues...
My biggest accomplishment since last entry was probably this.
I adore the minimalistic layout of the Nike+ Running app but it's been crashing since last update, so I've been using an alternative as a result. I wouldn't mind the crashing if it rebooted and just continued from where I left off like the version prior, but I just get a black screen with nothing happening. Currently, I'm using "Runtastic Pro" but I'm kind of iffy about it since the calorie counter has a 400~500 calorie difference between the two apps. Either way, I'm not really dependent on calorie burn alone because it's just an estimate. I'm for just distance tracking alone. I miss the fact that the Nike app would tell you when you hit your mile mark right away instead of waiting until you slow down. There's also this male voice with an American accent opposed to a British woman...(lol). I've also tried "Runkeeper" but I don't really like the settings. It tells me the intervals in a weird measurement. As for calorie count, walking a mile basically burns around 100 calories. If you jog at around 6mph, then you'll burn 1.3~1.5x that, so it'd be 150 calories. That's the safest estimation for calorie burn (or at least I think so).
Got my taxes done with my mom. I was going to do them myself but I'm kind of glad we did it with an accountant since it makes the whole dependent vs. independent and what claims can be made and not less complicated. My mom and I ended up going to a place in Chinatown for it this year. As usual I get a small amount back from the Federal government and I end up owing more than what I get from the Federal government back to the state government because I don't withhold my taxes with my employer. If I did, I wouldn't need to go through the extra step of writing a check to the state but I don't really mind since I don't use my Washington Mutual checks much (small piece of bankruptcy history. hayyyy~).
|Metrorail Gold Line -- Chinatown Station. This is one of the nicer outdoor light rail stations we have. Our transit agency puts a small percent of the transportation budget into art which I'm very glad and proud that they do so.|
|My crotch and a bracelet I never wear, so I decided to wear it that day.|
So anyway, I have been wanting an electric razor for the longest time and now I've basically stopped threading my mustache as a result. I was so amazed the first time using it because I was expecting it to just tug at my face and slice the hairs off but you don't feel A THING! It can also be used wet or dry, AND IN THE SHOWER. I wouldn't use it in the shower though because I don't have a mirror in there and don't wanna screw up my sideburns or something.
Other than that, nothing much has been happening with me. I've been getting more serious with wanting a dog and I'm pretty much set on getting a Samoyed. The only thing that's holding me back is that there aren't any breeders in the south land with them available and I still have several quarters of school left. Hopefully, I'll get one eventually. I'm not going to rush things but ugh...looking at them makes me a bit sad (lol).
Similarly in a discussion over dinner, Lisa wants a Great Pyrenees which is like a huge version of the dog I want mixed with a Labrador Retriever but she already has a dog and it's more in her plans when she moves out of her household. It's kind of funny since Lisa is, like, 5 feet tall and she wants a massive dog that you could practically ride on. For dinner, we went to "Farm Cuisine" since I read an article in the Los Angeles Times about organic Chinese food and how they're trying to compete in the area of cheap eateries. The article mentioned two places and I've already been to one they mentioned. I've been loving the place I've already been to since they began operating, so I wanted to try the other in hopes that maybe it'd be just as good. My hopes were kind of destroyed when I got my dish because it was kind of tasteless and light. We both weren't even full after our meal so we went to a cafe afterwards for some more food...(lol).
|So bringing this back up. 2010 me vs. January 25th, 2013 me.|
