Ahh I literally just had a test last week in my math class and now he’s giving us another. what a fucking asshole >_> I’ll also be having my first exam in my programming class, it’s on Unix & shell programming… by the way, it’s an advanced c++ class… shell programming for those who don’t know is in my very little experience seeing it is a very effective language to program but has one major drawback, the language is literally gibberish. Now i don’t know exactly how to program on shell since its extremely complicated but I kid you not when I tell you that sometimes it more or less looks like this: ‘^[a-z][A-Z]* | \/ \/’. Now I made that up but like i said, it looks something like that. My math test? man, fuck that. I’m so going to fail it. I’m taking pre calc and the exam will be on trig(sine,cosine, etc.) and a bit of circles. My problem with that class is that the teacher like I mentioned earlier is an asshole, he speeds through the lesson and gives us no time to actually practice in class. Have a question? Feel free to ask it as long as you’re prepared for him to belittle you.
So I’ve been spending some time studying Unix, maybe I at least got a shot in passing that one. Of course I’m going to try to review the pre calc material as well but I’m not expecting anything good on that one. I’ve been debating with myself if I should drop it now and just get a W(withdrawal, bad grade but not as bad as an F) and just taking pre calc again next semester with a better teacher. It’ll be the first time I’ve ever dropped a class but honestly the teacher is trash, absolutely no help whatsoever. I’m basically going there just to waste about an hour and a half of my life.
Oh boy, Tuesday will make or break my grades. Because I’ve been slaking extremely hard this semester I’m in no postion to fail these finals. If I’m able to pass them I might be able to pull off at least a C. Gotta study hard!!
Gah ever since I bought Pokemon X & Y(which I was so excited for I went out of my way to go down to Manhatten before school started to get it three days early) I haven’t played any other game. I bought Killzone Mercenaries and the game is awesome but then I got GTA5 so I didnt play it as much anymore. I’m halfway through GTA but then Pokemon came out… All my time has been dedicated to Pokemon since then. I even bring my 3DS(the special edition pokemon one which I recently purchased just for this game) to school everyday just so I can play some more on my ride to and from school. Haven’t touched my Vita and I rarely play my ps3 now since Pokemon. The game is just soooo awesome, plus all the starters are amazing. I dare say these are the best starters we’ve ever had. My only issue with the starters is Delphox or however its spelt, the design is too feminine to work for both genders imo, but its still good imo.
Game is so great and for the first time ever I actually won an online match(quite a few of them actually)!! I gotta put the game down for a while though. I got a test coming up this Monday for my computer class, I can’t fail this since we only get three tests including the final so this one test counts for 33% of my grade ;(. pretty annoying since most of it is basically remembering a bunch of computer codes off the top of your head.
Today I got both good and bad news in the mail. Good news, I got into RIT! Exciting isn’t it? Finally my ticket out of this place. But, knowing my life there’s always a catch. The catch this time was that yes I did get into RIT, but I can’t go for Game Design & Development because the program is full or some mumbo jumbo, instead the letter says to contact them so I can choose a different major. Whats the point in going if I can’t go for what I want to do? Plus on top of that, I was looking up scholarships to help reduce the cost of the school and I can’t get any of them. So not only can I not go for what I want, but I also can’t get a scholarship to afford it if I do decide to go for a different major. Did I forget to mention that all the CUNY schools I applied to have a wrong social security number(a mistake on THEIR part since I have a copy of my application which has my actual social security) that I still haven’t gotten fixed because their office is only open Monday through Thursday? Damn man, I was really looking forward to getting out of this place, but doesn’t look like that’s happening anytime soon. I suppose I should be a little happy that they’re at least giving me the opportunity to go but with a different major, unlike NYU which just flat out rejected me. I’m feeling really down, man. Just once I wish things would go my way.
As I said in a previous post, I’verecently completed Sleeping Dogs and moved on to the DLC “Nightmare in North Point,” and lets just say that add on wasn’t was what I expected. Sure, it was funny and added some extra missions, but it was really short. I completed the entire thing in like an hour and a half. But I can’t complain much, after all, I did buy the game and the dlc back during Steam’s Spring Sale pricing error so in total I believe it was like $6 something. I got 18 hours of gameplay in total so I’d say I got more than my money’s worth.
I know I said I was going to go back into Soul Sacrifice but I’ve been rage quitting a lot in that game recently. I’m up to the mission where you have to solo a Cyclops, the most I’ve done was gotten it’s health to orange before I died. It’s the god damn spider’s and their annoying web skill that keeps fucking me up; the Cyclops’s spinning move doesn’t help neither. So instead I’ve decided to just tackle another game on my Steam backlog, I decided on playing Bastion, a game I picked up during a humble bundle deal(by the way, the game plays like ass with mouse and keyboard in my opinion.) I don’t think I’ll be playing much this weekend because I have my final scene due Tuesday for my acting class and I still don’t got my lines memorized, plus there’s also some writing work I got to do as well for that class.
On another note, RIT finally got my transcript so all that’s left now is for them to review my application. I don’t think I mentioned it before but I applied for game design and programming. I spend most of my time doing game related things, so I figured I might as well make a living out of making games. Yes, I know making games and playing them are two completely different things but honestly nothing else inspires me so yea. Hopefully I get accepted, it’s a really expensive school, plus I’d have to move and live on campus since I live in NYC, but I’ll worry about that once I know if I got accepted or not, NYU already rejected my application so I’m pretty bummed out about that.
