Been Busy?

It’s been a little while since my last blog. I’ve been really busy with school during the last few weeks. I had my Physics mid terms last Friday, my Chemistry mid-term today and I have my calculus mid-term Thursday. I got a perfect score on my Physics exam. It was really easy. I did all my work and noticed that my calculator was in radeons instead of degrees, so I had to recalculate all my answers… That was a huge pain. Even with that, I still finished 3rd overall, so I wasn’t too worried about it. I think our professor said that the average was 120/150 or so. The group I am in is usually close to last in terms of finishing. Everyone always rushes through it and I try to make sure we look at every aspect of the lab. I write about a mile long explanation for each short answer. I guess I am just overly critical on the lab reports. That’s what takes me so long. I usually turn in the lab report, so I make sure it’s perfect in every way. I have lab this Friday, then I don’t have one for another three weeks. That’s going to be nice.

I’ve found a new music group that has some pretty killer music. They call themselves “Flogging Molly.” They’re an Irish Punk band. Their best song is by far is called “Drunken Lullabies.” It’s a faster tune, but it has that Irish dance beat to it that I love. To me, good music is something that makes you bang your head. Music is there to move you. People here at OSU tend to blare their music in the lounge because they think they are cool because of the music they listen to. Most of it is just horrible. It’s the same idea over and over. That’s what started to piss me off about Greenday. I don’t think they have made a new idea in their last 2 CDs. It’s the same thing over and over. Maybe you’ll disagree with me, but listen to their CD’s back to back and you might hear it. I remember when I took Clint to buy their CD, “American Idiot.” We listened to it on the ride home. For every song, I could name another song they’ve done that it sounds exactly like. I want a band that will put out new ideas every CD.

School sucks. Yep, you heard it right. School sucks. It’s so boring. Its work, work, work with no challenge. I really hope it starts getting harder. Having a huge work load covering easy things just makes school become monotonous. One of my Physics problems took 20 minutes so solve, but it was so easy I could have done it with my eyes closed. It’s getting to the point where I don’t want to do my homework. I will still do all my homework, but I really don’t want to. I know the importance of it. I just wish it made me think more… It looks like I only need to take one more class in Chemistry to cover my Chemistry classes as a Computer engineer. That makes me happy. Chemistry is not hard, but it’s boring. It’s all memorizing. Boring! I’m going to take Chem 125 in the winter, then forget I ever took it!

My brother told me something yesterday that I will ever forget. He said, “Everything you learn is important. The engineer is the expert. He has to know everything.” I started thinking about the truth in the statement, so it’s brought new life to the meaning of the engineer. Thanks Ed!

So long!
