Upgrades and the 3.2 GPA lameness!

I now have in my possession, a video screen created by Samsung, 46 inches in diagonal measure that can produce 248,832,000 pixels every second. It is wonderful and beautiful in every way shape and form! I have yet to connect my computer up to it, but my xbox looks amazing in 46 inches of pure beauty. I want to get my rocking computer connected and see how Dx11 looks in 46 inches of beauty. Best investment ever!

Next on the buy list:
1) Books for next quarter. $400
2) Wireless sound system for my TV. $300
3) A new bed. $1000

I have just about everything I need in the new apartment now, minus the new bed. I’m thinking of buying one in the January time frame. I want to keep the bed to $1000, with the frame. I’ll probably go a little more for a headboard, and nightstand set. I’ll also need some new sheets. All in all, I’m looking around $1500 for the whole thing. That’s my goal anyway. I’m going for a queen size, as it seems like the best bang for the buck. Queens cost around $100 more than fulls, and $400 less than kings. I think I’ll “settle” for a queen! Comfort will finally be mine!

Next quarter is going to be fun! I’m going to take the last of these boring classes. In the spring, I think I’ll be able to take my first neuroscience class. I can’t wait! I had a blast in PSY 105 learning about the brain. Learning is really not the right term. It was more review. I read a few books covering the material over the summer.

I am still mad about the 3.2 GPA. All because of you calculus! So, I was told we wouldn’t need calculators on our final so I didn’t end up buying a new 84 plus since Ed still had mine. Even on the practice exams, there were no need for calculators. So I didn’t worry about it! Boy was I in for a surprise. Turns out, we needed to approximately calculate the value of: -e^4t * ( (3 * sin(3t) – 3 * cos(3t) ) / t ) when t = 1 and t = 3. This problem took nearly 30 minutes, but I don’t think I was close enough on my answer. That would have to explain the lower grade on the exam. The only other question I think I might have messed up on, was the question involving the second linear approximation of a function. We never did this in class, but I think I went through it ok. I think you just have to follow Newton’s Method for solving linear functions (which I did read about). Oh well. I have the department chair for a professor next quarter. I’m not sure if that is going to be good or bad. We’ll have to wait and see. Anti-derivatives and integrals, here I come!

I am kind of flustered at the Engineering course next quarter. As if signing up for 4 parts to one class is stupid enough already, they changed the scheduled time for my lab to loop over my recitation, so I had for drop my recitation to a later time in the day. I hope Chris and I can still carpool together. I will likely miss the conversation. It’s fun to argue with him (even though he always loses)!

So, I was given a strange look as I left Wal-Mart the other day when I jumped in the air and screamed, “Snow is hear. Wha-hooo!” What’s the world coming to when you can’t jump for joy at the sight of something as divine as snow.

Anywho, I’m going to bed. I promise I will post about technology and it’s wonders in the next post. I didn’t proofread this post; as I don’t most, but I think I have a few grammatical errors in here. C’est la vie. La vie va continuer. I miss French class. I might take a class if I can cram it in. I’m already going to graduate with 230 some credit hours. I wouldn’t mind going over 20 hours one quarter for a French class!

Before bed, I am going to answer my question at the end of the. “If love is blind, why is there lingerie?”
Answer: Love might be blind, but lust has perfect vision!

Now I’ll leave you with another fun question. Where does the toetag go on a dead person if they don’t have toes?
