Crazy Week

June 22, 2007Dan No Comments »

Man, this week was a busy one. And it’s been way too long since I’ve posted here. I’ve been trying really hard to post at least once every 10 days, but it looks like I’ve missed that mark again. Anyway, I had ‘midterm’ exams in both linear algebra and differential equations this week. One was Monday and the other was Tuesday. I’m doing well in linear algebra, but diffy q is really kicking my butt. I should probably go and talk to the prof to see if I can get some help from him — yes it’s that bad. Finals for both classes are a week from today. If I want to pass diffy q (and believe me, I *really* want to pass it), it will require quite a bit of studying in the next week. I’m really not looking forward to it.

Anyway, exams and homework due for each of my classes botched up the beginning of my week. I’ve been on the ‘get up at 7:00 am – work/class till 4 pm – go home and take a nap 4:30 till 9 PM (tired from previous night/allergy meds knocking me out) – then staying up till 4 am mostly wasting time’ schedule or a variant of it for a lot of this week, and it just keeps going. There’s a pile of dirty dishes in the sink and stuff misplaced all throughout the apartment because I haven’t had the time to get to any of it. Anyway, I just had to vent for a bit. This side of my life doesn’t usually show it’s face in my blog, if only because updating the site is way at the bottom of my list of things to do.

It’s now the weekend thank goodness, and I’ll enjoy the chance to catch up on things around here and on sleep. Unfortunately next week looks like it’s going to be just as brutal. Hopefully get a better start on the week. I did take the time this evening to put about 30 miles on the motorcycle, that was nice. As sung by Freddie Mercury (Queen):

I gotta be cool relax, get hip
Get on my tracks
Take a back seat, hitch-hike
And take a long ride on my motor bike
