Still here

What have I done lately besides still being worried that I've annoyed everyone, you ask?

In no particular order:

- Now I actually am in the Mortar Board!! I've mentioned that I was a finalist for being accepted, but I never mentioned actually being accepted until now :)

- A month or two ago, my Physics professor asked me if I was interested in doing a research project about the molecular flow of granular materials (or something of that sort - it's taken me a while to be able to even understand what it's about that well) with him next semester. I was interested (even though I barely understood it at all at the time), but it's been a confusing (for me) whirlwind of meetings and a formal dinner with some of the other faculty members involved and me not being able to explain the project well enough to anyone until recently, and it made my schedule really full for a while and had me really stressed out, but lately it hasn't been nearly as confusing :) Today we finished the application!

- I might've mentioned this in another entry, but I got a 62 on my second test in Math Stats and already had a 60 on the first one :( I'll probably do better on this next one, though :)

- I continued having to worry about the possibility that my last three entries-- oh wait, I said that already.

- About a year ago, my roommate gave me a hard time about a video that says that Mario-- wait, I've mentioned that recently too.

- I got to go home for Thanksgiving break!... and had to work on an Internet Programming assignment :(

- Still haven't checked my friends page, because I'm still afraid that if I even glance at it, the first thing I'll see is something pertaining to the Forbidden Comment Threads (Ω or not Ω) (that is the question) or something that reminds me of it. Sorry :(

- Probably something else important that I forgot.

- Oh, at some point there was a Physics test that I couldn't even finish a single question on! I thought it would be easy because the first test was easy, but it wasn't :( Hopefully the work I showed trying to find something that even seemed like it could be the right way to solve any of the problems is worth enough partial credit that this test won't bring my grade down too much. And hopefully the final won't be nearly as bad.

No repost button friends-only blah blah blah I need to schedule this entry and go to bed.

Congratulations on mortar board! And the research project!

Thanks :)

I'm sorry that I keep asking, but... do my last three entries make sense?

1. Don't be sorry for asking. :)

2. They do. I've read them. (I read everything. I have downtime on public transit and the LJ app on my phone.) I haven't had much to say because commenting via the LJ app is frustrating and I don't think I have much helpful/constructive to say otherwise. (Though, I did want to mention that "The Game Theorists" remind me an awful lot of the bullshit clickbaity website I was writing for this time last year. No sir, no liking.)

It's no problem - I'm just relieved that I can finally be sure I was making sense :)

And again, I'm sorry I sometimes jump to conclusions too quickly... If jumping to conclusions was actually jumping, I'd probably perform really well in the Olympics. :P

I know, right? Especially since so many people seem to take it so seriously...

In order (just the bullet points):

-Congrats!
-Congrats! Isn't it amazing how something totally foreign starts to become familiar as you work at understanding it? I'm going through the same experience with my new job, learning a totally new industry. I hope you have a lot of fun with this project, even though it sounds like it will also be a lot of work!
-Good luck on the next one!
-hugs
-hugs
-Yay! (even if you had to work on an assignment)
-hugs
-hugs
-Good luck! (I had a statistics class once where the entire grade was based on the mid-term and the final. Unfortunately, the professor turned out the lights to use the overhead projector in every single class, so I slept through most of it and got a 27 on the final. :()

It sounds like you're doing pretty well so far this year. Here's hoping for an even better next semester. Go Matt!!!

I wouldn't say it was all totally foreign even when my professor first explained it to me, but it seems like there is a lot to it, which made it really hard for me to figure out what to say whenever anyone asked me what the project is about. I hope it won't be too much work...

Good luck on the next one!

Good luck!

Thanks :)

Thank you! I feel like I did pretty well earlier this semester, but it feels like I'm starting to get worn out, especially on days when there are several things I have to attend at specific times...

Huzzah! Except for the tests, but the research project sounds awesome.

I'm depressed. Because the world is ending and there has not been ANY proof that things will ever get better. I'm unable to think about anything except the fact that the world is ending, no matter how hard I try

I hate, hate, hate, HATE the term "social distancing". And being reminded of the coronavirus in any other way.

That's my entire personality now. And it will be until our world is back to normal.

Please read this entry before you comment on ANY entry in my journal about the coronavirus: https://matt1993.livejournal.com/373852.html

    They probably won't be mandatory forever, but you still have to wear them.

    I thought I told you that I DO wear a mask whenever I am required to or am told to. Why are you acting like I don't?…

    Looking back at the Spanish Flu pandemic, it obviously wasn't like that forever. I don't know if people had problems with being able to adjust.

    They probably won't be mandatory forever, but you…

    well before the pandemic, youre supposed to wash your hands before you eat, and after youve been to the toilet. Or if youve got something on your hands. Thats all.

    With the pandemic, its an add on…

    Even before this pandemic I've tried to wash my hands whenever I needed to - but I've never been sure if I'm doing so well enough or often enough. :(

    but this is now our new normal.

    As I said to arcadia30 above, I'm tired of hearing "new normal" because it implies that it will be like this forever and/or that I'm a bad person for being unable to…
