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.
I start school Monday and my new computer science teacher(whom I still haven’t even met) sent us 3 emails already containing work that will have to be due by our 2nd class meeting. Holy shit what a kill joy, guy has us for 3 months, cant he wait a few more days before he starts dumping us with endless piles of homework? Not to mention students are currently taking finals for winter classes, I highly doubt any of us want homework before class has even begun. 😦 Well, so long vacation, it was good while it lasted.
Every time I have school work due on a certain date I do everything but that school work. For example, I have a coding assignment that was due today but due to me (and a bunch of other students in the class) not understanding how to do the freaking code I didn’t get it done, didn’t help that I waited till the last minute to do it. So instead of trying to get it done as soon as possible(ideally tomorrow since its -10% every day its late) I’m here surfing the web & catching up on thesurvivor2299 website(please be real). Even happens with exams as well, I know I should study but I never do, instead I watch tv or some other pointless shit that can wait till I finished my test, which leads to me failing the test. Cause of this I’m having an awful first semester at Brooklyn College, and I’m ashamed of it as well, its not like I’m a full time worker, hell, I’m only taking two classes this semester and I’m STILL failing. I know I can do better, in my other college I was a pretty good student, above average, and I took like 5-6 classes every semester. I’m not expecting a 4 year school to be the same as a 2 year but for god’s sake I shouldn’t be doing this bad. Really gotta get my shit together, especially now since I’m paying for school.
Truthfully nothing interesting has been going on in my life lately(social wise), shocking, I know. BUT, my gaming life has been pretty sweet. I’ve finally finish The Witcher 2, my first playthrough was on Iorveth’s side. Holy shit, the first two acts in the game were LOOOOOOONG. I didn’t even know the game was split up in 3 acts until on my 12th hour of gameplay I finished the first act. All I thought to myself was “da fuck!? that was all one act, how many freaking acts are in the game!?” Not that I dislike long games, it’s just that it got me off guard.I’ll go back soon for another playthrough on Roche’s side. This time I’ll play on normal. Yea, that’s right. I played on easy; game is super hard. 😛
Also, I’ve pre-ordered GTA5 on psn. Normally I’m highly against pre-ordering/purchasing retail games on psn because they’re marked full price, but I made an exception this ONE time because both my brother and I would like to play GTA Online together. Red Dead Redemption was my favorite multiplayer game this gen, so if GTA is even half as good as that I’d be more than happy, though I’m sure it’ll be way better.
Um, let’s see… I also bought Spelunky today on PSN. game is hard as balls. Still haven’t gotten past 1-3. Its is really fun though; and I’m very shocked but I think I actually like how the game looks more on the Vita than I do on the PS3. I know, weird, right?
AAAAANNNNNND lastly, tonight is my final day of Summer. Tomorrow I have to wake up early for my first day of school. Super disappointed when I found out I started school so early. Every school I’ve ever been to has always started on Sept. 9, Y U START SO EARLY, BROOKLYN COLLEGE!? So yea, I’ll make a new post tomorrow or something on how my first day back goes. By the way, this is a new school, so I got to make friends all over again, what a drag. >_>
Yea!! My hard drive actually arrived nearly 5 days earlier than expected! Lucky for me, it was shipped from NY so I ended up getting it the same day it was shipped(yesterday). I’ve been setting up all my files up again. I was planning on playing The Witcher 2 once I got my hard drive but I think I’ll just continue focusing on Persona 4 Golden, I’m having way too much fun with it. Then after that I’ll head on to Xcom Enemy Unkown which I got from Playstation Plus.
I got to try out Sonic All Star Racing Transformed. Luckily the free to play weekend is still going on. It’s pretty fun, I would’ve bought it would stop being a jerk and work with x360ce, it won’t even open up when I put the files in the folder. 😦 I mean I can play it but its annoying since I cant pause the races unless I go back to my keyboard plus the menu controls are all wonky. Needless to say, I’ll pick it up once it gets cheaper(I’m a cheap bastard).
Oh yea, I’ve also saw Man of Steel a day or two ago, and its was… alright I guess. Not a fan of Super Man so my expectations were extremely low. Overall I guess I’d give it a 7/10. It’s the only time Super Man has ever looked even a bit interesting to me, but even then its not like the movie changed my opinion about him. Until next time, tomorrow I’m heading over to my college so my advisor can help me get my stuff in order for Brooklyn College(yea, they FINALLY sent me a letter, yay!)
I beat Max Payne 3 today, that’s another game off the backlog! Making some progress, brah! Up next is Alan Wake’s American Nightmare. I think I might also play Mario Galaxy 2 while I’m playing the other 3(which you can see on the “What I’m Playing” page.) I sold my Wii ages ago so I play my Wii games on Dolphin, which is a Wii/Gamecube emulator for those who don’t know. It has its pros and cons. Some games have some glitches, for example, both Mario Galaxy games have audio glitches where the background music stops playing after a while and that can be a problem after boss fights as the game will freeze, that sucks cause the little music I’ve heard from the game is actually pretty cool. On the other hand though, you can play games in sweet, sweet HD. Let me just say that there’s a HUGE difference once the game is in HD. I recommend giving the emulator a shot if your PC can handle it. You can even use a Wii mote with the emulator too if you want, I prefer using my MLG PS3 controller though.
Oh yeah, I got some good news about my problem with school if anyone’s interested. I fixed the problem with the class they were saying I was missing over the phone so I was able to save myself the long ride home, and also I got an email from Hunter College telling me I got in. It’s not the school I want but if I don’t hear anything from Brooklyn College within the next two weeks I’m just going to settle with Hunter. I want to stop worrying about school as soon as possible so I can start enjoying my Summer vacation and also get an idea of what my schedule will be like in the Fall so I can get a job that’ll play nice with my schedule.
Well, until tomorrow my friends! I’m going to play a bit of Fallout: New Vegas, even though it’s a glitch fest it’s one of my favorite games, it’s that good. Speaking of which, I decided I’m going to start my best and worst games of the generation sometime this week, but I’ll only be doing the negative side first, I want to play The Last of Us and see if I should put it on my list as best something on my list since all I hear is praise for the game. So make sure to look out for that! Night, everyone; it’s gonna be 12am here in NYC and I’m getting sleepy @_@.
With this generation almost coming to an end I want to make some best and worst of the generation awards. I don’t know if I should wait till September though since that’ll be the month where the last few games I’ll be purchasing this generation are released. Besides, I haven’t gotten around to buying The Last of Us, I hear it’s a nearly flawless game. Then again, I’d rather make the list while the games I’d pick are still fresh in my mind. Maybe I’ll just start by posting the worse games of the generations, I highly doubt any games that I want later on this month will top how bad the games on my list are. Oh yea, tomorrow I’m going to go to school to get my whole graduation shit checked out, hopefully it all goes well; wish me luck.
By the way, the list will contain the games from Wii, DS, PS3, PSP, Xbox 360, PC(games that have come out in like the last 6 years or so). For some reason my friends don’t consider the PSP and DS in the same generation as the WiiPS360, but I do. So yea, till tomorrow or whenever I feel like doing it 😛
(Excuse any spelling errors and shit like that, I’m typing this up on my tablet with this new case that I got which has a bluetooth keyboard. I
I woke up early to go to school today to go fix their error and they were closed… Two hours I wasted going over there just to go back home… I’m supposed to fix this by Monday or else I’m assed out, but monday IS the only day I can do it because they sent me this shit so fucking late and they don’t work Friday-Sunday! I could’ve used that time to go to the gym or something but instead I wasted a pointless trip. Fuck them, seriously they can all fuck off. I’m going to go play some good ol’ video games to cool off. I’m in love with Persona 4 Golden, it’s just oozing with style. Freaking love the soundtrack. I don’t think I’m going to beat Persona 4 Arena, it’s basically two genres I’m not too fond of, visual novels and fighting games. Shame too since I’m enjoying the story. I think I’m just going to read an in depth summary of it.
And because of that I can’t graduate. Here’s the kicker, I’VE ALREADY TAKEN THE FUCKING CLASS!! Now I have to go waste my time to go to school to fix THEIR error. Seriously, so many fucking hurdles to keep going to school. Hell, I still don’t even know if I’m going to Brooklyn College or not, and if they won’t let me graduate because of this I’ll have to wait till September because they sent out the letter literally the last day to sign up for classes, unfucking believable. What they getting paid for is beyond me if they can’t even send out letters this important earlier. I’m really starting to get fed up with this whole fucking system. I’m just about ready to say fuck it all, drop out and get a full-time job, I really am.
Oh my Jesus the landlord is such a frustrating man. My room has been having this problem for whats going to be two years in a couple of months and it STILL does this! Every time we tell him about it what I assume he does is simply “fixes” the spot with the problem when he goes to the roof and that’s obviously not working. He needs to redo the whole fucking roof or something, apparently before we moved in here the ceiling in my room has collapsed before. I’m a really light sleeper so I had to share a bed with my brother, that dripping sound was beyond frustrating. So besides that little issue, starting today all my friends are officially employed! Looks like I’m the only one who still doesn’t have a job. I should change that once Summer is over, I’m going to be 20 pretty soon and don’t have much experience working outside the family business(which is something I want to get out of.) I’m still waiting for an email from Brooklyn College telling me if I got in or not. I’d assume I’m getting in no problem since I definitely have the grades for it but I need to pick out classes for the Fall semester, I have no doubt that I’ll have a shitty schedule since I still haven’t gotten to apply. I just hope it’s not too shitty. The good news is that Brooklyn College is a lot closer to home than my previous school was. It took me about an hour to get home when I went over there compared to the nearly two hour ride home from my previous college. Also getting Persona 4: Golden today. Hopefully it arrives early so I can play it!
Since I’m getting a new Vita game today I attempted to beat Magusar again in Soul Sacrifice. When I originally went up against him he killed me quickly, but when I tried again he’s really easy. I destroyed him, man. Only had to heal like twice and that was it. I liked the ending, it was pretty tragic, but that makes sense since the game’s lore isn’t a happy one. I’m planning on beating Magusar again to watch the save ending and see how that turns out. Also, just cause I beat the final boss doesn’t mean I’m done. Still got a bunch of Avalon Pacts I haven’t completed plus multiplayer is a blast to play.
