Good grammar is hot...

'Should have' instead of 'should of'.

Conscious vs. Conscience





When correctly used, it means the world to me.

I've noticed that I have now written enough blog posts that if you scroll down to the bottom of this page, you will find a tab for "Older Posts."

Midnight Ramblings...

Same charade...

I'm studying for a final, and luckily enough the prof gave us a list of terms to learn.

Students hate doing work so we split up the terms.
Some students reeeeeaaallly hate doing work and decide it's cool to write word-for-word the first thing they Google/look up in a book and say, "I did my share." To make it seem much less half-ass they will copy and paste a few/four/five paragraphs.

The latter form of students are straightup mo-fos. Stop being lazy and writing bullshit. I don't have the time* to sift through several paragraphs of plagiarism to make out what I really need to be studying.

And this is the sort of crap that happens everytime the prof posts up a study guide. What do we do? Split up the work and then send it around. And then there's always at least 1 shithead who thinks they can get get away with this sort of lazy behaviour.

Never again will I settle for this sort of agreement.

*Or energy, as it is midnight.

I have to remind myself to write more...

Currently reading: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Samuel Clemens aka Mark Twain.

It's quite good. Pretty funny too. Some of the lingo is old school (obviously, since it was written in the 1860sish) but not completely incomprehensible.

I have not yet started The Book of Negroes, unfortunately. However, I did begin this book called 13 and a Half Lives of a Blue Bear. It was captivating enough but the premise of it was so obvious that I knew how it would end and so I didn't finish it.

Can't think anymore, goodbye.

In the midst of an (almost) empty library...

So it seems that inspiration only strikes when I'm doing uninspiring things (writing an essay)...

If you read my previous blog post you'll see that I told myself that I would write more frequently and would push myself to write things that do not revolve around my escapades at school. But, if I'm being honest with myself and go back to the first sentence of this blog, I must say that inspiration striking me at whichever moment, (be that as it may, writing an essay) I should take the opportunity to write all the same.

In unrelated news, I have not yet started The Book of Negroes. (If you scrolled down to read my previous post earlier, you will have seen that reading said book was on my to-do list).

Something I should be reading?

The article for the essay I'm in the middle of writing...

I don't know why most of my blog posts revolve around exams...

Same deal as always. Exam in 2 hours but still procrastinating.
This is not good. I told myself that I would write a blog to document events and things like that but I haven't updated this blog in a while, not to mention that I only feel like writing when I don't want to study and only write about me not wanting to study.


Note to self: I will update this blog more frequently and will make it sound more interesting. I really should steer this blog in a certain direction.

Currently reading (or will soon start reading): The Book of Negroes.

Eff the school kids playing on their driveways...

I'm sitting on my bed and the sun is shining brilliantly through my window and hitting my legs. Should I be reading my notes or frolicking in the grass? Wtf? The sunshine is toying with my emotions. Studying for my last exam is painful. I don't even want to aim high anymore and it won't even bother me if I get a C.

To care or not to care?

See blog #2.

How sweet the sound...

So I'm washing the dishes when I hear the melody of an ice cream truck making its way down my street. I immediately locate my wallet mentally in my head, then restrain myself. Every time I hear an ice cream truck coming along, I just want to stop the hell everything I'm doing and run after it.

It's the universal reaction.

Am I right?

Anything to do less work...

So I have a lot of time to study for my upcoming exams. An entire week actually. In any case, I'm still trying to minimize my amount of work. Looking over the syllabus for one of my classes, I see that there's a whole list of readings I need to get started on (obviously, I didn't read any of them during the semester). Some of the readings don't carry links to the actual articles. They're not even available to access on the Intranet.

Does that mean I don't need to read them?

Just emailed my TA to confirm.

I have an exam in 3 hours...

and yet I'm lacking the motivation to do some last minute cramming.

I should get cracking...
