I know that I haven’t done this for a while, but I felt that it is time to go on another rant. I know that the date is off, but for now on I’m going to write these rants before the day they go up. Just go with it.
This rant, in particular, is about school. I’ve been having a hard time dealing with things recently and need to get these things off my chest.
Firstly, I have a “group” project. Of course, the word group is used very loosely. As of this morning, I have done approximately 20 percent of the project. This project that as of now that I have done practically all of the work on is the creation of an interactive story game. My group has decided to do a memorization type of game where you have to explore one scene to find the clues on how to escape later on.
As of now, I have written and programmed everything that we have as of now. This is a group of four people, and I have kinda-sorta only given one of my group members a pass. He is currently helping some of his friends who are evacuating from the hurricane. But other than that no. Pretty much all of them agree that they are not going to be putting in any work on the weekends, which is ultimately the worse thing ever, especially when they talk about meeting during times when I cannot. Another one of my group members is never in the group chat. It’s through Google Hangout so everyone can see that last message that someone has seen. Lastly, I have a group member that literally says “Just tell me what to do, and I’ll do it,” which is code for “I plan on putting absolutely no initiative into this project and plan on skating by by doing absolutely nothing.” At this point, I don’t have any hope for him.
Outside of that, I have no clue how I’m supposed to get everything done. I have so much to do and so little time. I do as much as possible without pulling my hair out, but I do need time to decompress. I plan on getting hardly any sleep for the rest of the semester. I’m going to need lots of sugar.
Okay, guys. I have been so stressed out lately. There have been so many things happening. And I’m just sooooooooo stressed out. It’s Valentine’s Day, and I am so not feeling the love. (Except for the cookies by parents got me. That was life at a time like this).
Currently, I am taking a course where my class of six is going to go to high schools and teach students how to do “science” and have them help with actual studies. That is great and all except for the fact we have to create lesson plans and all of these other things, but I have done practically everything for it. It feels that I have done the most work, outside of the professor teaching the course. I did one thing over the weekend because there was approximately one for every person. When I went back Monday to see if anyone else had done anything, there was nothing except what I had done. Keep in mind that it is literally just finding information of fill out the excel spreadsheet that I had created to hold all of the information. Nope. The logician, INTP/J (I’m about 50/50 between the P and J) in me would not let that fly. Instead of just leaving passive aggressive notes about how other people need to do things, I did the majority of what was left and created a to-do list, both with passive aggressive notes on them. I know that it is probably wrong to do so, but I just couldn’t let it go.
Another thing that I’m totally peeved about, while there is nothing I can do about it is that I need to watch about five hours worth of documentary about the Gulf War. It’s (a) going to be a total bore and (b) old. I am going to have to literally fight for the ability stay awake. I still need to do laundry.
And everyone probably knows about the Calculus class that I’m taking, but for those who don’t know, I was stupid enough to take my Calculus III class online instead of taking at 6 at night like a normal person (these were my only options, guys). Other than being about a week and a half behind, yet again, but my test is missing. And by missing I mean that I took it, got a zero, didn’t get an email from my grader like I was apparently supposed to get. I received this email and started to cry for about 20 minutes straight. My mother called be during this trying to calm be done and actually giving me the will to actually email the professor back. Since it is an online class, we have to go to a testing center, luckily I had my receipt from the to prove that I actually went to take the test. Hopefully, something good comes out of this. I’ll keep you guys up to date about this.
I’m writing this at a time where I’m trying to stay awake, yet ridiculously tired at the same time, so sorry in advance if there are some things that just make absolutely no sense.
I’m at that point right now where I feel like I have done everything, yet nothing at all. It is horrifying when I go back to my to-do list and see that I have gotten things done, yet I have so much left to do. Maybe it’s because I’m too stressed out. I need more time to do things, yet there are not enough hours in the day to do things, especially when I’m as tired as a am. I feel like I need caffeine to stay awake. It also could be the app on my computer. It reduces the blue light on my computer. I should really turn that off when I have homework to do to keep me awake, except that I stay up late when I do homework so that probably would work since I need more sleep. Tonight will probably be an early night after I do laundry. Also, like an absolute nerd, I’ve been watching Power Rangers: Dino Thunder. It is my childhood and is super cheesy, and I can’t find a reason to care. I am doing in symbolic protest of the new Power Rangers movie that is coming out that has none of the feelings of the original series. It feels like everyone is trying to get on the train of making childhood favorites into a more mature version of themselves, which I disagree with to some extent. Yes, characters should age with the audience that it is aimed towards, yet they should still have the same feeling that gravitated an audience towards them. This is every similar to by feelings towards the DC Movieverse, especially towards the Joker. The Joker was one of my favorite villains in DC. And then he was made very dark, and I didn’t get the same feeling from the character anymore. Yes, the Joker is crazy but it wasn’t completely crazy if that makes any sense. Hopefully, it does, or at least someone kinda sorta gets in. I also kinda want to know if anyone feels this way, especially when a movie or television company reboots a franchise that doesn’t need to be rebooted. *cough* Avatar: The Last Airbender *cough* Sorry, I don’t know where that cough came from. But I’m going to leave in here. More things to check off of my checklist.
P.S.: I mean the movie and not Korra. Just wanted to make that clear.
It’s been two years, to the day tomorrow, and I haven’t really done something like this before: “Rants.” I’m really doing this because I have tons of things going on in my life, and just want to get it off my chest to the people of the internet in a kinda anonymous way. And also some things that I just want to say, in an angry fangirl kind of way because life is just like that. So this will be the first “blog post” of the site, so here we go…
My roommate and I finally watched the Lucifer episode from Monday, January 30, and it was super hectic. Not because of what happened; the episode was amazing, but afterward when watching the promo for the next episode it said it would not air until May. I cried internally. I have to wait three months to find out what happens next. And it was an epic cliff hanger. I’m not going to give any spoilers, but it you have not watched it, you should. Catch up now during this three-month hiatus. You won’t regret it. (Shameless plug for this show.)
But in sadder news, I am stressed out from college. I am a second-year student of Chemistry and things are just getting more hectic. We just got started first rounds of tests. I’m also behind in some of my classes. On top of having about 18 credit hours of work to do, I decided that one of my classes should be an online class and because I’m an idiot who forgot to plan in time for this class to watch the lectures. So now six lectures behind, and I have homework in it due tonight. So I’m going to leave it here, do my homework, and hopefully see you guys tomorrow.
