Last free day

This was my last free day until exams begin. I will have to buck up over the next month while a couple good films come out as well. On that subject, I'm glad the Academy did something right tonight by having Heath win. With Watchmen coming out on March 6th and Monsters vs Alien's the last week of March, it looks to finally be a good month for films. I've been thinking of watching slumdog millionaire before it leaves the theatre, but I don't know when I'll have time to watch it. It just occured to me that I could watch it Thursday before work, or even Friday before work. I think I should do that. Although that would take time away from working on my numerous projects that are up to be done soon. My marketing analysis will be due in 2 weeks on Thursday and I want a lot of it to be done, or even most of it by the time Watchmen hits.

This also means that it's playoff season. It's exactly the perfect time for the Oilers to start sucking too. I want to see another playoff run in my lifetime and I have only ever seen one. It was perhaps the best start to a summer I've ever had. Well, it was the best summer I ever had. If I can get a video idea thought of and start on my marketing project by the time I get to sleep tonight, I will be pleased. I should also think about studying more over the next couple days. Just reading the textbook wont help me with my short answer questions that are going to be on the test.

Good luck to me. With 28 school days left, I'm already counting them down.

It begins again. My week off from school is just about over and studying begins again today. I just want to be able to do this everyday. This being sit around and do almost nothing. Actually, now that I think of it, I don't like that I've done almost nothing for the past 4 days. The days keep going by faster and faster. I've been going to bed at 5 am as well, doing nothing but just sitting on my laptop doing useless things. School finish faster please?! I am also not excited about the influx of group projects that are coming up. Both are due at the end of the term but working on them right around now seems like a good thing to do. I also have to start working on a marketing paper that has to be under 1000 words. With bits of research in them. I hate doing research. It is due in 3 weeks today, meaning I'm going to start working on it on my typical homework day, Sunday. I will just have to suck it up and just go.

I wanted to make a new video over this week, because most of the week I would have nothing preoccupying me. Well I guess I will have to do it today, among a couple other things. Its just depressing that I know I won't have another day off for the rest of the term. Everyone has Good Friday off, while I don't even have school on Friday's. Monday doesn't count either because exam's start the next day. I'm really hoping my exam days are all in the same week. That way I do not have to start studying until the beginning of April.

I've noticed I used this blog to only talk about my hatred for school. I need to stop that. I need to also stop just posting once a week. I will try to post again before school starts up again on Monday. Not that my 4 day school weeks don't go by fast enough as it is.

The NHL playoffs also start right around the time of exams as well. If everything goes well, the Oilers will make the playoffs this year for the first time since going to the Stanley cup finals in 2006. That was one of the best summer's I've had in a long time. This summer is going to top that though.

Late at night

I always tend to write these blogs late at night, right as I am about to fall on my face from being tired. I have managed to spend $1075 at best buy over a 3 day period. I know I tweeted that a lot today but I really have nothing else on my mind right now. I have a midterm to write on Thursday and I am happy to have half my tests over with. Just getting the motivation to do the rest of the work for the semester is going to take a big of work. I have no motivation to finish anything, and even after reading week, there wont be much school left. My goal over reading week is to watch season 8 of dragonball z and put some more songs on my ipod, while attempting to live on my own for 3 days. I wonder how well that is going to work.

It seems that every time I have a break in schooling during the semester I always get dragged to work more days than I want to, cutting my break short. Case and point. During my upcoming 10 day period of no school, I work 7 of those days. It would have been 6 had I not chosen to work on the 16th, but I get extra pay for that and I need to get back all that money I just spent. I don't like to spend my money and since I've had a $500 car bill and now this, its going to add up. Although I should not be too worried until someone comes to buy my car. Then I'll be down a lot of money when my dad makes me pay all out for his old car all at once. I have a loving father( NOT).

Also now that I have my laptop back, I find that I'm staying up later than I want to. I think that has always been the case, even before I broke my laptop. I say I have all this free time, and all I end up doing is sitting around doing nothing all day. I want to do something at least. Bah it just bugs me that I waste my days away sitting around doing nothing and just having the next day pass on as if nothing happened. It does make June come all that quicker but it just means that I would be very close to starting school all over again. Its just a damn reoccurring cycle that never ends.

These get more depressing as I type on. I need to come up with new ways to create blogs. They end up being depressing and I hate it.
On a better note, I was able to take home a watchmen poster finally last Thursday. Whether or not I can keep it is another question. I have to let my boss know I took it on Thursday, when he gets back from his holidays. He probably wont mind, we have 7 watchmen posters now, it shouldn't be a big deal.

That's all I can think of now, I want to sleep early today, I was really tired during Cade's blogtv and wanted to nap, then Colbert came on and I decided to study after that. Here we are at 1:30 am again. At least I wont have to worry about anything for a week come Thursday. Come the 19th the school reality hits.

I love neglecting you

I neglect this blog quite often. It has become a regular occurrence that I write a blog once a week, I don't like that. I will write something proper tomorrow, if I remember. Tomorrow I have planned to put more music on my ipod(I know that's already going to fail) so I hope writing a proper blog wont.

I got a new laptop, more on that tomorrow.
