Back at the Plantation

We have a new email server/system thingie here at the plantation. It ain't working probably (shocking) and everybody seems to be in a panic.

I took 2 days of vacation early this week so I could focus on my school work. Somehow I've managed to work 40 hours a week and carry 7 classes. That's 21 units. Yeah, I know...what was I thinking? Let's just say math and the hard sciences will never be my friends and the 4 classes I took over this past year in those disciplines really brought my GPA down. While I was still just above a 3.1, I added more humanities and social science classes to my already full course load this semester to bring that GPA of mine back up. Luckily 3 of my classes are all online.


I can't believe I waited so long to take online classes. I can do it anytime, anywhere, and unlike being in traditional classrooms, I actually participate in the discussions." I'm taking a political science course and if I actually had to sit in a classroom and be a part of live discussions, I would have dropped weeks ago. Dudes, if I could find an online graduate program that fit my needs I would so be there.

I also finally started writing my senior thesis paper (I've have a rough draft due this Friday). Of course, all my creative juices start flowing during the last few hours of my vacation time (which was quite annoying since I took the 2 days of vacation so I could focus on writing the bloody paper). That might explain why I could not turn off my brain last night and didn't get to sleep until close to 1am. Somehow I managed to drag myself out of bed at 4:30am this morning and did some additional studying.

I also made a big purchase this morning from Amazon. I give more information when I have my new toy in my greedy little hands.

- Strange ((^_~))

P.S. If you were looking for something juicier in a blog posting, remember this, I said I would update this blog more...I didn't say nothing about them being good blog post. Don't judge me. You don't know me. ((^_~))
