HAHAH FINALLY! FINALS ARE OVER. I had the last possible day for my last final but they are over now! As for the wrap up, I prob hit average or a little above on mechatronics, i easily got an A in physics, fluids was the hardest test of my life and everyone thinks they will fail, and thermo was pretty damn hard but im sure i at least hit average if not higher.



NOW I WILL BANG MY HEAD TILL IT HURTS TO THE HAUNTED!

Well i'm officially burned out and sick of school. For one I did terrible on my 2nd fluids midterm so my whole chance of passing the class is on the final. I hate the subject and I hate the professor since its essay tests and i'm not good at writing. My other classes are going fine but I really wanted to hit close to a 3.0 gpa this quarter which is attainable with no C's but now i'm just hoping I only get one C so my gpa doesn't drop. An interesting thing happened today though. We were watching movies in fluids made by classmates for extra credit. While we were watching these alot of people were talking to eachother on how interesting they were. Sure some of it was interesting but the whole time I kept thinking that this major is wrong for me and I really don't like it much at all. Only reason I did mechanical is because a professor at UC Irvine told me that it's the best bet to be a ride designer. I also realised the I enjoy the show aspect more about Disney's rides rather than the mechanical. I would be happier designing the cue line and the storyboards rather than the sensors and circuits that make the ride go. This is of course a hard job to get since you have to be amazing and one of the best to get a job in that kind of field and being mediocre in engineering is good enough, since it's a hard feat to accomplish. I'm already on my 3rd year so there is no sense in stopping now, i'll just get my degree and get an MBA a few years later. Who knows I might enjoy working in the field, or if not I can always become a business man or a rock star. HA

Lately i've been thinking about the future pretty much. Went to the career fair today which made the reality that im less than 2 years away from the real job world. I need to start working harder so I can get my 3.0 GPA. Basically as of now I only find theme park engineering interesting. I've tried to force myself to like cars and stuff that most mech engineers love but I just can't get into it. I'm sorta nervous that if I don't get my dream job with disney imagineering or another ride designing company like unversal creative, B&M, or premier rides I will be unhappy with my life. Well other than that my music has been going good. I wrote my first full song and recorded all the guitar tracks, singing and put a drum machine to it. On friday my band is practicing so they can all learn their parts at that point. It seems that we finally have practice space and a full line up so things are looking good over there. We'll i'm off to sleep since I have work and lots of studying to do for my midterm on friday in fluids. laterz

Yesterday I went to a star wars marathon party with people i work with and that was fun. saw all 3 films back to back with food and "beverages" Then on the way back a stupid idiot crashes right into my bike since he was on the wrong side of the path. my bike is completely worthless now since the wheel wont turn so i had to pick it up and walk home with it. took me almost an hour since my leg hurt a little from the fall. i figured id call my roomate/"best friend" and ask for a ride but he refused and told me to walk home. my battery died in the phone so i couldnt call anyone else, i was pretty damn pissed off. later i went to cassey's and played nfl 2k, but he kicked my ass, pretty damn good 2ker player. then today was just as much fun. i woke up, did laundry. then i decided to hang out with the few other friends i had but they said not to come and said it in a very dick way. made me mad and i expressed my anger and im pretty sure as of now im not gonna be friends with them again. so basically im almost down to 0 friends after this weekend. gota love halloween.

ps im done bitching but that was so huge i had to bitch a little

Well I had my thermo midterm wednesday and it was pretty damn hard, but I'm sure I hit above average. I started my new job this week working for the media people, it's pretty cool so far. Im not sick anymore! And to top that i'm done with work this week so i'm just relaxing tonight and I only have to go to class tomorrow but I doubt i'll go to thermo, which only leaves 2 classes :) I'm actually listening to the donnas now and I must admit they are pretty darn good. they definatly have a punk sound to them. I can almost guarentee they grew up listening to the sex pistols, ramones, dictators, etc. I haven't listened to punk in a while since im on a huge metal/hardcore trip now :) well im gonna go play some soul calibur, laterz

Bah, I currently have a cold. I feel a tad better than yesterday but hopefully it will be alot better by tonight since I have band practice and football tomorrow morning. Now I get to go to thermodynamics and fluids. Two terrible professors teaching two terribly boring subjects. All while I'm sick, should be fun :S

PITTSBURGH WON!!!!!! They are now 4-1 and are certainly doing 1000 times better than they did last year.

ARGH! I almost finished my physics today and I have a bunch more homework. I played my roomate, Stephen, today in a ESPN Football on XBOX game and we did the same game Seahawks vs Rams, i was seattle. Anwyay SAME SHIT HAPPENED! I was winning and the bastard came back last quarter and kicked my ass. SCREW HIS NICKEL DEFENCE! (I did get more than 20 sacks on him though.
I'm gonna go see Unearth, Terror, and Black Dahlia Murder at SLO Wednesday, that should really kick ass. I love Terror and I was gonna see Black Dahlia Murder when I saw Cannibal Corpse but their drummer was riding with another band and their car broke down so they never got to play. In other news on music my band is really starting to take shape. I played with the other guitarist, Angelo, and our singer, Scott, saturday night and we almost finished up one song instrumental wise. It sounds pretty darn good though, we are going with a somewhat metalcore sound. Pretty much Slayer, In Flames and Iron Maiden all wrapped up into one nice heavy package. Upon playing with them a realized one thing. The only times I feel like I belong, or confident with myself, is when I have a guitar in my hand. Pretty odd, I need to learn to be confident with other people now :P
I got to see Harold and Kumar for the 3rd time tonight. It was really nice to just relax on a Sunday night and not have to do tons of homework like I have been. I decided to just put down the thermodynamics book for tonight.
Oh yeah, I also bought Aladdin DVD on thursday. I love that movie! Well I'm off to sleep now since I have a very very long day tomorrow.
bye bye

PS I'm happy because Disney RULES!
