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.

Blurb

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...


For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
