Focus

I seem to have more of it now that I’ve changed some things in my life. I’m actually a week ahead in one class  already. Which is good because it’s over in March and that’ll be here before I know it. It also helps because the class I take after it is taught by the same teacher and she said that as soon as I’m done with the current one I can start the work for the next one.  So when I’m done with the second one I might not even have to go to that class which would be two free days to do homework if my other classes have a lot. I did finally go to the Apple store today and stock up on USB cords. I had no luck finding the student papers for class tomorrow. I sent the teach an email telling her none of the three campus bookstores had them and that I didn’t see a link in Blackboard where I could print out the ones that are needed for class. Last time I checked there wasn’t a response from her. Either everybody else in class got them or nobody is trying like I am.

Information Management

The class hasn’t even started yet and it’s already a pain in the butt. So the teacher puts the syllabus up Tuesday and I read through it and lo and behold I need something called student papers. I either have to go to the bookstore and buy it or print it out. Of course she doesn’t have it posted so I can print it and when I went to the downtown campus bookstore today and  they didn’t have it. So hopefully it’ll be at the bookstore at the west campus I’m going to tomorrow; if not then I’ll have to go to the south campus. I also still haven’t went and brought another charger for my phone and it seems like the one I have downstairs is trying to die and the one for my iPad. I think I have an extra one for the iPad but it might be the last one I have. So if I ever make it to the Apple store I’ll be buying chargers galore. I got really aggravated in class today because while the teacher was talking there were two chicks having a conversation and I’m like really? Of course they were the first ones asking questions; instead of talking pay attention. There were also two girls that came in late. Towards the end of the class there was a younger girl that didn’t know how to make a folder on the computer. I thought basic computer skills were taught in high school. It seemed like such a dumb question to me coming from someone that I thought should already know how to do it.

Really?

The extra charger that I brought when the iPhone 5 came out is already dead. Barely got 4 months use out of it. I thought I was going to go buy the rest of the containers I needed today but that got pushed back to Friday. I’m just going to stop trying to plan things since they never work out the way I want. I ended up spending the day clearing out my DVR and watched Sliver Linings Playbook and Zero Dark Thirty. SLP was a decent movie but I don’t think it deserved a best picture nomination and I don’t see why Zero Dark Thirty got one either. I only have 3 more Best Picture nominees left to watch. I wasn’t going to try to get a hold of Life of Pi but since I’m keeping a pretty good pace I figure I might as well. I’m even going to try to watch all the movies nominated in the animated feature film category. I keep hearing good things about ParaNorman and I’ve already watched Wreck-It Ralph.
