Oh freakin…Lord help me.
My mom is going to kill me if she sees the B’s I made on my Term and Essay Exam. It’s only the first one of the semester though, and no matter what, I’m going to keep being optimistic. I still have a chance to raise it up to an A with the other two Term exams and the rest of the Essay Exams. The only problem is that my Mom has been on my tail about keeping my grades up for awhile. If my GPA drops below an A, I lose one of my scholarships and my membership to Phi Theta Kappa. I really need the money if I’m going to transfer to Southern Adventist. They’re really expensive! About $24,000 if I remember correctly. But at the moment, I’m not so worried as that as I am about Mom getting a hold of me. Oh God…I’d rather not get my head chewed off for the thousandth time this month…
I also accidentally fell asleep in Psychology this morning. That’s unusual considering that I find this class pretty interesting. Plus, unlike a certain friend–B.–I want to retain this knowledge. I want to use it for my stories and characters, make them more complex, more relatable, more–just, so much more! People are more often than not completely different than what we expect them to be, and act differently than we think they would. Personalities can be contrary, and outward attitudes may deceive on how a person really thinks. Slowly but surely, I’m learning that now, and not just because of this class. I guess if anything I’m just tired. Five hours of sleep is not enough for me. I want to go to bed earlier, I really do, but it’s just not possible.
I went to the library after class to get resources for my research papers. Then my stomach virus decided to suddenly disappear and give me back the feeling of hunger as soon as I sat down. While the thought of food was making me somewhat queasy, not eating seemed to be make me sicker. Let me tell you, that was so annoying, I almost got up and headed to the cafeteria then. Almost. I ended up ignoring it for an hour and a half.
After that, I headed out on campus to get food. I ended up staying for two hours with B. and some of the people who are coming with us on our trip. We were discussing some possible changes to the schedule, and from there, it just went nuts. There are a few people who have similar names, so one of my friends who is coming came up with the idea to use Final Fantasy characters as code names. She got Genesis, B. got Cloud, and I got Yuffie, which I’m not sure is a good or bad thing considering I’ve never played anything from the series. The few others who were there with us got names too, but I don’t remember what they were. It didn’t stop there. References abounded as we talked about various shows, video games, anime and manga, as well. One prime example was when one of them started talking about Sherlock. I haven’t watched the third season though, so I had to sit there with my ears covered “la la la”-ing until it was over. Another was when “Genesis” was talking about how Crisis Core was one of her favorite games and was looking forward to Final Fantasy XIII: Lightning Returns. For all that anime and manga that she goes on about, she doesn’t like Pokemon for some odd reason. Go figure. Geeks, we are. Care, do not.
I had to leave early today to deposit my financial stuff for school. It took longer than it should have. Much longer. the software I use to keep important information didn’t sync all my info with my phone, and made me take the long way around, which even that didn’t work. Luckily, my Mom was with me, and she used her phone that actually cooperates to get the information that I needed.
Store. Home. Nap. Then geek step-dad who thinks that software I use is not syncing because it is somehow my fault. Other than that, it was an okay day. A pretty funny one too.
