Everyone Deserves A Break

Hi there.

I can't believe I'm able to make a post two days in a row on my first week of classes.. I thought I'd update you on what has happened in the past 24 hours. I've been given A LOT of homework to complete this week. I think it might be the most I've ever had during the first week of classes.

Studying...

The homework has led to a lot of studying so I'm able to complete everything on time. I studied so much that I've received A's on all of my assignments that I've turned in so far. If you compare that with last semester, that's like winning 100,000 crowns - you know I had to include something Kingsisle related in this post. ;)

I also had my first Object Oriented Programming class today. I think I was lucky today because I found out that he's not going to give as much homework for this class as my programming courses in the past. That'll give me time to complete all of my homework in other classes - which is awesome.

I decided to take a break for the night since I turned in all of my homework that's due tonight. I knew it was time for a break because I've been studying for three days in a row. I want to start off tomorrow stress-free and be able to complete more homework tomorrow. If I do this, I'll have more time to do what I want to do. I'm able to make this post, so that's great!

These posts are a great way to type out my feelings about my college experience. Not all of them will be positive like this one - but in the future, you'll see that everything turned out the way it should. That's my goal for these posts to remind you and myself that no matter what happens, everything will work out as long as you never give up. I hope you enjoy my posts over the next who knows how long. I know I'll stop during Christmas Break. By the way, it's almost four months until Christmas Eve.. Did you know Kingsisle announced Pirate101's Valencia four months ago?? We're not far from my favorite time of year... Wait, I need to stop talking about Christmas because the song I'm planning on embedding here today is not about Christmas at all. :P  Well.. I should end this post for now because I'm going to relax and watch a movie or something. Maybe YouTube... Hmm, I really don't know at the moment, but I'm sure I'll figure something out. I can't wait to relax my brain because I've literally been overthinking the past few days. Thank you all for reading. Until next time, I'll see you around this amazing Galaxy that we call the Milky Way. Yeah... Bye!

First Day Of Class

Howdy.

I've been so busy today working homework. You wouldn't believe how much homework my teachers gave me - a few teachers gave me homework and I didn't even attend my first day of that class yet. That's college life!

Homework Schedule

I decided to make a sort of homework schedule for myself this week so I don't get behind on any of my assignments. I actually have Sticky Notes open on my desktop with a list of all of my classes and due dates for certain assignments. I don't know how long I'll be able to keep that up since I've been working on homework all day and still have a lot of work to turn in.

Every start of the semester makes me worry I won't be able to complete homework, but I'm sure after last semester, I can make it through this one. I hope I'm able to turn in all of my assignments for all of my classes this semester on time. Sometimes I miss a few and that lowers my grade a little bit. I'm focusing on getting good grades, but most of all trying my very best.

Starting Web Design 2

Web Design 2 is going to be a class that I'll have to pay a lot of attention to. My last web design class looked a lot simpler than this advanced class. I guess that's why you call it an advancement? :P I'm looking forward to the challenge, but I hope it's not too challenging. This was my first class for the day.. Tomorrow I have Object Oriented Programming - which I'm also looking forward to!

I guess I should end this post for now because I have to start on my Introduction to Scripture homework. Yes, it requires reading a bible. I know my Bible, so the reading for this class is mostly review for me. It's nice that my college offers classes like this! I'll let you know how that class is in a week or so - or whenever I'm able to make another short blog post... Now... I'm going to end this post. Here's a nice song I've had in my head all day! It's not a 1990s or 2000s song, but worthy enough to be one since it's an amazing song. Enjoy.

Goodbye Summer Vacation!

Hiya!

I promise I'm not excited about my Summer Vacation (90 days) is ending. However, I am excited to continue my education again this Fall. Many of you already know that I'm currently earning my Computer Science degree, if not... I'm earning my Computer Science degree in Programming! :P

Sad But Still Excited

I'm going to miss playing Wizard101 & Pirate101 as much as I did this Summer. I was just thinking today about how much I already miss having my events. I'm going to miss doing that - until the huge event on October 29th. I have attended college since August of 2014. I don't post as much as I used to because of College and just real life in general.

Good Grades are nice to have and so far I have done an amazing job keeping my good grades & GPA where I want it to be. I also want to learn as much as I can while I'm attending so I'm able to have an amazing career in the future. It does take a lot of hard work, but anything is really possible if you keep trying.

I LOVE Computer Science! So far I've had a great time learning as much as I have. Last semester I had a Cyber Security, Programming class (and of course electives). These classes were amazing and I learned a lot from them. This semester I'm going to have another Programming Class - C#, Web Design 2, Relational Databases and a few other classes. I can't wait to get started!

Less Wizard/Pirate Posts - More Life Posts

This was a random post. My main goal for this post was to tell my plans for this Fall. I will not make as many Wizard101 & Pirate101 posts as I usually do during my vacations, but I promise to make them when I can. I plan on making more posts like this to update you on how my life is going. I usually don't make posts like this so everything is kinda jumbled together. :P I promise once I get used to making posts like this, it will be nothing like this post.

I hope you enjoyed my lovely random college, end of summer vacation, related post! It'll be fun making posts like this. I should include a song at the end of my real life posts. I'm going 90s and 00s! Keep in mind that these songs might have bad language in them. I promise I'll keep them as family-friendly as this blog is... Okay, maybe not that family-friendly. I'm only human! Just listen if you're over the age of 13, okay. :) Thanks. Yeah... I'm going to end this post now before you think I'm crazier than I already am... Let's see... a song...... OOOH, here's a nice one for all of you!
