Ten more days until the semester is over… Woo!
This week was a bit stressful academic wise. I had 3 exams and a quiz on Wednesday and it was so-so. For Chemistry, we had another exam for the last quarter of the course. I studied as much as I could but for some reason, I couldn’t grasp the concept of balancing oxidation-reduction equations when it’s instructed in acid or base along with the half-life problems. I spent the last 35 minutes trying to solve a question worth 4% and couldn’t get anything at the end.
The last two exams took place during C++ in one class sitting. The first exam was the programming portion. We had to create a program that will take in 5 strings (no less than 3 characters long), display the entered string, and displace the strings with even lengths. I got the program to work and everything (unlike last time where I was completely lost) except I forgot how to solve the issue where in the menu selection, you could enter a character but when you enter 2 or more, the menu loops as many characters as you entered. Later on, I found out it was because the extra characters was still in the buffer and I needed a line of code to solve the problem. Hopefully I won’t get too many points taken off from it. On the bright side, I feel a bit more confident about the class since I don’t think I’m in danger of not passing anymore. The second exam for C++ is the objective/theoretical portion. I probably did bad because I focused more on studying for the programming and forgot about how pointers work. There’s still a programming final next Wednesday- so if I study effectively enough, I’ll pull through.
Finals start on Wednesday! As mentioned a couple of posts ago, it turns out that I could reschedule my C++ final to Thursday- which helps out because I already have 2 on Wednesday to begin with that can’t be rescheduled.
On Fridays, I usually spend the day with my boyfriend (except for last week since it was Thanksgiving). This morning, my boyfriend’s car had an oil leak so we ended up taking my car and I drove instead. I’m not a fan of driving unfamiliar freeways right now, but I drove the ~33 miles and survived :D. Maybe if I had a Camaro, that’d be a different story… It definitely helped that it’s next to the main school I’m trying to transfer to so that was a bonus; especially since I will most likely take the car with me when I move. We had the classic “rice with salmon, potatoes, tomato, mushrooms, and green onion” meal for lunch and Pho for dinner with a couple of my boyfriend’s fraternity brothers. I kid you not, this is probably the 6th week in a row that I had Pho- and on the first week, I had nothing but Pho for all of my meals for 3~4 days straight *o*. Then to end the night, we went to Target to buy each other munchies for finals.
Sooo going back a bit, being a shopper fanatic I am, I participated in this whole “Cyber Monday” thing. There were some good deals here and there. I bought 2 tank tops from abercrombie kids (surprisingly, I still fit into kids size), a cardigan from Hollister, a pouch for my on-the-go hygiene products from Forever 21 (the 3 stores had free shipping), and another bag from Windsor Store (with the gift card I got last week). I’m a happy shopper ^__^. The only other thing I want to buy is an outerwear jacket from Hollister except it’s a bit pricey and the semester is going to be over soon so I probably wouldn’t wear it as often. If the price goes down later on, I would buy it for future outfits.
Last note before I conclude the post: I ♥ ~modern~ American Muscle cars :D… Although it’s specified in the “pony car” class. The modern ones, like the Camaro (5th gen. but the 2010~2013 series. The 2014 model is ruined with the taillights), the Mustang (5th gen. The 2015/6th gen. model is ruined by the headlights), and of course the Challenger (3rd gen. thankfully the recent models haven’t been ruined yet so kudos). I could go on with my enthusiasm over these cars except that will probably take up another 1,000 words so I’ll stop there for now. Just wanted to share that quick info.
I’m caught up with 95% of comments from 2 posts ago. So I’ll get to it this weekend or after my finals on Thursday. Have a great week!
