Just hit my goal of 5% growth in stocks. Waddup!? Also upper division econ midterm went really well, feeling pretty good about today
[[MORE]]Yesterday I lost 1% in stocks. Today I gained all that back and then some. So far, in a week and a half, I’ve made 3% profit, when my original goal was to break even over a span of 2 months. For MMW, I got 2 A’s in both of my MMW papers so far, and an A+ on my midterm. I was aiming for an A- in MMW, but perhaps an A is in reach now! For Japanese, I was expecting a B- on...
[[MORE]]Here I am reading up on Game of Thrones lore instead of studying for my Japanese midterm part 2 tomorrow. Now I am typing this post up. Later, I will probably spam Facebook. My first part of my Japanese midterm, I don’t feel like I did too well. So at this point I’m expecting an A-, which I don’t mind and would be easy to get without trying. It’ll depend on if I...
I think my dream job would be to work at is Google. They are so cool x_x Honestly they’re one of the few reasons that I still want to go lawyer, even though I wouldn’t be contributing to all the cool new Google stuff, it’d still be awesome to be a part of a legal department. Internship please :D
I hate how this macroecon class is so ambiguous on answers. I mean normally this wouldn’t be that hard, except I hate how macroecon has contradictory vocabulary, where one thing can mean something in one context, and then it means something else in another context. Of course, that wouldn’t be that bad at all, except macroecon seems to be all about tying together different ideas, and...
One of the best feelings in the world
Making your first profit off of investments you made yourself using research you’ve gathered by yourself.
[[MORE]]I started this quarter off pretty poorly, a B+, a B (which turned to an A), and a B- on the first round of midterms, and a C (which turned to a C+) on a paper. At that point, I was looking at about a maybe 2.something GPA, and was devastated. Naturally, I began to make rethink my life choices, and decided to try CSE for a bit, but I decided I’d wait for the 2nd round of midterms before...
Why I hate MMW
I was doing my course evaluations and I realized For my other 3 classes, I literally spend an hour a week outside of class doing class work. But MMW thinks it’s so high and mighty that it can assign 10+ hours of work a week… College would be great without MMW.
I don't understand
[[MORE]] I have no Idea what I’m doing with life. I told myself that if I get a nice GPA, I’d continue with law. For the majors I’ve been looking at, I’m interested in CSE, not passionate, just interested. Law I’m passionate in, but MMW is really killing how interested I am in it. The length for law is also a problem, as well as the stress of holding a high GPA. I...
As tiring as today was, it was pretty fucking good
How are you in college and don’t understand percentage
Before Midterms round 1
[[MORE]] Before Midterms start, I’m hoping for my cumulative grades to be: Econ: A Vis 21B: A Japn 10B: A MMW 12: A But will be okay with MMW 12 being an A- So worst case scenario, I’ll end with a 3.91 and a 3.88 cumulative We’ll see how my expectations change after Midterms and papers round 1.

Fall Quarter 2012
[[MORE]]I can’t complain about my grades. Didn’t get the 4.0 I was aiming for, but a 3.86 first quarter is pretty good. I do blame having to write a 3 essays on art for my Final a big reason why I didn’t get that 4.0, and a TA who grades way too harshly for MMW. Next quarter I’ll have another art class, except it’s supposed to be all memorization, which sounds...
I'm an advocate of pop-finals.
Then it’s fair for lazy people like me who can’t study for the life of me
For an A in math: A- on finals, likelihood: Very likely with cheat sheet For an A in Japanese: A- on finals, likelihood: Very likely with minimal studying For an A in visual arts: A on finals, likelihood: Toss-up, take home test that I need to work really hard on For an A in MMW: B on finals, likelihood: Very likely with some review before hand Hoping for a 4.0 GPA, will be satisfied with a...
Up at 6:30AM, 5 hours of classes today, 3 of which are discussions which I need to not sleep in, and then 5 1/2 hours of work from 8pm to 1:30am. I already know today is going to suck. Fuck me.
After 10 hours,
My suite and I gave up on beating Mortal Kombat 9. We are so unacomplished
I think the people upstairs have this problem with NOT BEING ABLE TO walk like a normal person. All they do is stomp around. It’s incredibly annoying, if you can hear your footstep, then I can hear it 100x louder. Is that too hard to comprehend? I figured that out on the 2nd day when I realized I might be walking too loud for the people downstairs. People are so inconsiderate some times....
Did I really
Spend over an hour talking to 2 suitemates last night about nothing but games in my room? LOL It was fun though, I gotta admit.
When I'm a little sad
I like being left alone to my thoughts and don’t like being comforted or talked to. After a while, I’ll realize how I can fix it and then I’ll feel like talking about it. Maybe it’s just me though. Because when someone talks to me, I’m just going to get more frustrated until I lash out. When I’m angry, I want to be confronted, just so I can lash out and deal...

At 12, I headed over to RIMAC to work out for a little while, which felt really good. After I got...

College Life: Welcome Week Part 2
Wednesday, 9/26/12: Today I woke up early to prepare for my interview at 8AM, which was across campus at Revelle college. I was out of my dorm by 7:15AM, before realizing I had forgotten my passport, which was needed to show that I am eligible for employment. Unfortunately, my suite has a bad lock, so my key was unable to open my suite, so I left without my passport. I stopped by Loan’s...
College Life: Unolympics
Tuesday, 9/25/12: Today started off with some Halo: Reach and chilling in the Suite with Roy, Dennis, Adeeb, and Andrew. Andrew and I decided to go to brunch together at OVT, since I had to go to OVT to get books, in a total not gay way. Because of that, I starved myself the entire morning, and ended up eating some candy and almost eating cup noodles that Roy had offered me. Andrew and I went...

After that, I went back to my dorm, which is in Asia Hall, and started unpacking while helping Brandon do his...
is actually pretty good. It’s not something that’s suppppeerr amazing, but I’d still watch it now and then when I get bored. It probably falls somewhere along my list of TV Shows with Big Bang Theory and Family Guy.
Fears before college
Taking Calculus 3 after over a year break from Calculus 2. Guess it’s time to read the Calculus 3 book before class has even started to get an idea of what I should relearn so I’ll actually be ahead of the class instead of a year behind.
I had a dream that I was taking a dump.
And then I realized when I woke up that I was on the toilet, already taking a dump, and the lights were off and it was pitch black. But in my dream the restroom light was on and it wasn’t pitch black. So I’m almost sure I had a dream of taking a dump while I was taking a dump. Just kidding, I’m not even sure what was real and what was reality now…
