Or not so quick depending on how long this ends up.

One, I did not know there was a Stargate Convention in British Columbia on April 16th, only heard about it due to my Mothers boss and a few of her co-workers are going next week. (My Mom works at a accounting firm so April 16th they get off.) My Mom has no connections to fandom and just randomly fandom showed up in my life.

Two, ordered parts for making my own custom Chaos Space Marine Sorcerer which is awesome and a great way to spend time without being to engrossed for finals. The reason why I am making my own is due to the sets that Games Workshop has out for the Sorcerer don't have the feel I want. Also are metal and IDK if I can paint or even glue the metal together with the supplies I have. But anyways it will be fun.

Three, Eleven is awesome, I like how much turn around we have from the end of Ten. It is very fun and pleasant to have a happy Doctor and that Ami knew that we must preserve happy doctor. However the hammering it home about how the Doctor is the last of his kind and alone but does nice things for the children (Humanity) was annoying. All in all I love Eleven and Matt Smith has vanquished all my thoughts about him not being right for the Doctor (mainly the face but after seeing his acting nope he is good).

Bonus, been messing around with Windows 7 themes to make my own, turning out nicely so far.

That is how I am feeling mainly due to spider bite on my face... Hate spiders so much. The other problems are that I have work to do and a bunch of stuff happening right after the weekend ends. I am however if able going to take part in a Supreme Commander 2 Tournament tomorrow. No money just a chance to try my hand at some competitive play. Doubt that I will get past round one of 6 but hey it is worth a shot and I will have fun and learn a few things.

So yeah two of my three known wisdom teeth are pushing it, and because of this I am getting constant headaches and fevers. Great way to spend spring break...

Between spells of headaches and fevers (which the fevers would not break unless I used ice packs repeatedly over the course of a few hours) I played and beat Mass Effect 1 which was fun. Because of the headaches and fever sleep was poor except for the few nights I turned the ac up like mad and dropped the temperature down to around 68°F which is cold for sleeping in for me. Also finally got around to watching RahXephon an anime that I have been meaning to watch for a year it was good predictable but good. Other than that my sleep schedule got out of whack but is back on track (did not mean for that to rhyme) which is good as only have tomorrow and what is left of today before classes start back up again.

Right now though I am working on the homework due Monday (which luck would have it is only one assignment) so got that to do though getting hungry again so might get lunch soonish. One of these weekends I need to play in a Games Replay Tournament for Supreme Commander 2 as then I would have a actual look at some good players, and also probably get knocked out in round one.

Burnt Out

So yeah I should not be allowed near computer with internet access.

Yeah I am burnt out, thankfully only a few days tell spring break which hopefully will go and reverse this.

Though I must say it is really annoying listening to my own stupidity that keeps going through my own head. Now I know why I am silent so much, I rather be silent than ever say some of this stuff.

Longish Day

Okay so normally a sixteen hour day is not bad for me, actually it is short, but normally it is well the norm for me. However today just sucked me dry of energy and just being able to put up with stuff... So now that I have everything except my Formal Lab done (but have the corrections for it now) and only have two assignments over break.

Break however is going to be lonely as it was back in High School. As in I am going to be all alone with only work and my computer to entertain me. That sounds like it would be great but I had hoped for spending time with friends and watching shows with them. But they are going away for break.

Also just down because I let my other side talk to me to much today so just emotionally, physically, and mentally drained right now.

To bad moods can't be like "Tired as all hell" that would be appropriate.

Bad Days

Another bad day... well ended bad, started off okay... But lets just leave it at this "I am sorry I cannot hang out with you as I spent all of my socializing time waiting for you to want to socialize."
kurorahk: (Default)
Like the title says, I lucked out the assignment that is due today that I have been putting off doing is not due tell Wednesday, but that means two assignments due for the same class on the same day but that is okay they are short. However I have a friend who is worried about dropping below a 2.0 this semester which would mean if he did he is out. That bites, then again another friend is missing all of her notes as her notebook decided to vanish into the Aether...

In any case figured out I have about two and a half years tell I graduate at the current rate. However this can be accelerated with a summer semester here next year. I may escape this place with a degree with only being here for four years!!! Yeah it really does make me excited as I am starting to hate this place more and more as I find out more and more about the people here and the classes here. If I was not already so invested in becoming as Aerospace Engineer I would change degrees and colleges and become either a physics or chemistry major.
kurorahk: (Default)
Today is release day, and in a bit less than forty minutes I am going into town with my RA to pick up my copy. Though it seems that steam has yet to decrypt the game to allow people who have it to play. But I believe by the time I get back and by the time I get SupCom2 installed it probably will be decrypted.

Woot for release day! (And for knowing I will enjoy the game just from the demo.)

ETA: So currently having some trouble downloading the patch or decryption codes or what ever it is that SupCom2 needs. Why do I say this, because right now it keeps starting and stopping the download of an "Update" not certain what is in the update.

In any case looks like it will be a while tell I can play it, which does not bug me to much.

No not the comic just have a countdown going on it my life. The countdown is not so something like a break in the semester (okay so that one is going but it is not starting tell March 12th). No instead this is about Supreme Commander 2, which more and more people after the discovery of the Debug Mode have renewed their interest in SupCom2 (sadly we can't make use of SC2 or SCII thanks to the first being Star Craft 2 and the second being the other way that people refer to Star Craft 2). I am glad of this as I got the same sense from the demo campaign as I did with Supreme Commander's campaign. By that I mean that you only get a small view of what you can do during the campaign.

2 Days tell release I am excited, still tired annoyingly enough but still excited.

In other news I got my work all done and don't have anything to do tonight or tomorrow night which is awesome to me. Tuesday after dinner will be fun though as long as it does not end up with me passing out right after dinner.

Also catching up on Ghost Hunters International.

I am happy the weekend is here mainly due to it means hopefully I will get lots of sleep and stop hurting and get closer to being all healed up. Also now that it is the weekend it means that not to long tell Supreme Commander 2 is released. But that is something next weekend will be all about. This weekend will be about getting a few things done and getting better. Probably play Fallout 3 some and IDK what else. If I get feeling better I might go for playing Supreme Commander Forged Alliance or just Supreme Commander some more. It is funny most people would think that playing games when I am not feeling well is what I do, but no when I am not feeling well I can't it just requires to much work.

Still don't know what is causing me to be as sore as I am for the last few days, can't turn me neck as far as I could a week ago, my right arm just is continuously sore, and my eyes I can barely move around without them hurting like mad. Sleep, lots and lots of sleep should help and lots of water as well.

Chemistry test was easy, took me twenty seven minutes to do. Which is fast, so fast in fact that I was the first one done, and I know I did great on it.

As for Supreme Commander 2 the demo is supposed to be out sometime today, so far no official word on it other than Chris Taylor's word during a open forum chat for Best Buy. Hopefully it will be out by tonight. But in other news found a ride to go pick up Supreme Commander 2 (SC2 as Starcraft 2 is not a game I will be getting) as my RA (Resident Hall Assistant) offered to give me a ride into town and back the morning that it releases. Which works for me. Though I still won't be playing it that day tell after Chemistry Lab.

I am still having problems with songs being stuck in my head so I am just listening to lots of music of my choice and not the random stuff that keeps showing up in my head.

The type of classes I am talking about is college classes. Specifically my Chemistry Laboratory Class. Now normally I enjoy chemistry I find it fun and if this gig with Aerospace Engineering does not turn out I will just go get a degree in chemistry and go with that. However today's lab, and actually every other lab ever we have had to deal with too many people and to little supplies. This causes people to have to sit around while everyone else crowds around what little supplies there are, which is inherently unsafe for a chemistry lab with various acids and poisons everywhere. So today for the second time I felt almost compelled to just say to hell with doing it in two person groups and ask the group behind me to work with us and do the second half of the lab while we did the first half. Did not actually do that, but now I do have to go in on Thursday morning with my partner and finish up the lab. Oh and another thing this school fails at even supplying the most basic of equipment. Our voltmeters we are never have expected to use before have no instructions, are analog, and no explanation on how to read or set correctly. They have hardly any numbers on them so you can't just guesstimate... As for the digital voltmeters and analog ones even once we figured out the right settings from memory they kept jumping round for the galvanic cell which should not happen.

So Thursday my partner and I are going back in and this time with his digital voltmeter finish up the darn lab and turn it in. We are lucky that are teacher is fine with late labs as long as they are in before the end of Thursday. And on top of this I have to study a bit tonight for my second Chemistry test, mainly due to we probably will get some really, really weird reactions in odd solutions...
kurorahk: (Default)
So I finished watching VR.5 with [personal profile] dysprositos who I think will be doing their own reaction post at some point as well. But after seeing the last three episodes I can only think of two things, well we came up with these together. One that they knew that they only had three episodes left and built it up like mad to make people really upset that it got killed as the show was just about to become even more awesome. Or two, that this was the way there where already going but with the rest of the season cut they have the biggest cliffhanger in existence. I mean the show was about to take a amazing turn to hit all of my show kinks, or at least a vast majority of them.

It is upsetting and I am being deliberately vague here so that those who have not seen it go and watch VR.5 right now. It is amazing if you don't like it I don't know what is wrong with you but something is.

In short VR.5 is amazing, the acting is good, the characters are smart and stay who they are and never act out of character. They all have great amounts of depth and feeling in them. The soundtrack is alright, do agree though the Sci-fi Channel version of the sound track is oh so wrong at points.

These are the results of this week of over working, being injured, and far to stressed.

I have been up to long, been over stressed, and my body has been working on keeping me healthy and fixing itself... I am starting to see people in the corner of my sight, I hear people following me, talking, shouting... Yeah I am going to sleep this off now... And hope it is just all that and not something else.

Also finished watching VR.5 more on this later though.

Okay so nobody warned me about VR.5 having a nice episode with dolls that are well creepy. And yeah I am not a fan of Creepy Dolls. Frakking Eyeless Doll none the less... Ugh not what I wanted to watch before I go to bed...

ETA: Well okay music still is freaking me out a little but it is getting much better. The episode in question is "Send Me An Angel." Still though just the doll earlier on was enough to freak me out. Though I don't mind the exploration of Sid and Duncan's past the intro to the episode freaked me a bit. But still I love that the characters are smart and get things quickly.
kurorahk: (Default)
I have a problem with shows. The problem with them is that if they are good in any way I will watch all of it, I do this with web comics too. It is a bad habit only due to the amount of time it consumes. I mean okay [personal profile] dysprositos tried to get me to start watching VR.5 which actually is exactly the type of show I like, the problem is that I know even if the episodes are for the most part disconnected I would still end up using up around 11 hours to watch all the episodes in one sitting. I don't have that kind of time right now. The other problem is that with having several other shows that I am currently watching this would really kill everything else that I am planning on doing or have to go do. I mean right now I am watching: Angel, Buffy, Leverage, Being Human, Bleach (and reading the Manga as it comes out), and soon VR.5.

Yeah that does not seem like a lot of shows but each one is about 45 minutes long, except for Bleach with is 22 minutes long. This along with my addiction to Video Games (not really an addiction as I don't have withdraws or anything like that) would kill my time that I need for doing Homework and studying for classes and tests. Expecially this week as I have my Physics 3 midterm over Electric Fields, Capacitors, and Electric Potential Difference, which is not a easy set of subjects. I just hope that this weekend (yes it is only Tuesday and I am looking forward to the weekend) that I can sit down and watch these shows and take care of most of the ones that have already aired and ended because then it will be back down to a manageable level of stuff I want to do. Though with only around an hour between classes for Wednesday and Friday I don't think that I will be able to fit any shows in tell after Dinner.

Man this test for Physics 3 is going to destroy me physically and emotionally due to just how hard the subjects are. Plus recovering from yesterday.

Just going to hide the stuff behind the cut even though not putting any pictures to be courteous to those who don't want to know.

And in this case the "wires" refers to my hair. So while showering I cut my hair and it is not lopsided, had to trim some parts that I could not tell where to cut at due to lack of a mirror in the shower but over all it looks good and is not to short. This means the Mullet is dead.

You know one thing that is better about living in a video game is that you can have your hair cut to a longer length for the same cost as any other hair cut...

Also still waiting on my friend to call me up so we can go to breakfast/lunch.
kurorahk: (Default)
At least to me that is. The topic is hair, specifically my hair. Last night if finally had grown to the point that it looks like a mullet or as my friend put it "Your hair looks like it is trying to eat your neck." I agree it does look like it is trying to eat my neck so tomorrow after I shower I am going to cut my own hair for the first time. Thankfully I talked to my Mom over break about how to cut your own hair so it should go smoothly, and finally my bangs will die!

Yeah I did not want to ever be told I have a mullet I dislike them and without the ability (thanks to a shortage of cash) to get hair extensions to hide it I am just going to cut it off and make it look like the last length of hair I liked. Mainly this means rounding up the hair at the back of my neck and cutting it off then cleaning it up and after that trimming around my ears so they are visible again.

It should be a interesting experience cutting my own hair.

On a side not slept in a lot today almost missed Chemistry due to it but oh well and finally found out how many dryer sheets to use with my combined whites and color cloths (since the dryers are big enough to fit all of my colors and whites together granted I don't have a lot of either) and now using 3 makes the cloths nice and soft which is rather pleasant.
kurorahk: (Default)
Posting that is the habit, well kind of just seems like when I post once after not posting for a while I start posting a lot. Anyways Chemistry was boring again fell asleep or almost did, the homework for the class took like twenty minutes to do last night. Since it was easy this left me with a lot of free time to watch Buffy, which I did since anything else would have kept me up for longer. So almost done with Season two just got the finale to watch I believe.

As for other things well just starting to make plans on what I am going to do for Summer, which really is going to be finding a job hopefully so I can fund finishing my desktop and then upgrade some pieces of it to where I want it to be at. Also so I can fund my Warhammer 40k miniatures addiction which really is more of the painting and modeling and not so much the playing of it, though that will happen too over summer.

The day just started and I want to go back to bed but can't tell four because of only about one hour and ten minute breaks between classes...
