“If you knew you were going to lose your leg tomorrow, would you sit on the couch and cry about it or would you run and jump and do some awesome air kicks while you still could?”—Marshall from How I Met Your Mother
JIM: Four years ago, I was just a guy who had a crush on a girl who had a boyfriend. And I had to do the hardest thing that I’ve ever had to do, which was just to… wait. Don’t get me wrong, I flirted with her. Pam, I can now admit, in front of friends and family, that I do know how to make a…

I think I’m going to complain a lot about school. When I say school, I mean math.
I’ve been at the library for almost 3 hours now just learning how to the homework. The homework itself? Still pretty blank. Taking math classes got me reconsidering how good I am at math. Actually, taking math classes made me realize how easy science is compared to math and how I’m already starting to regret switching majors. Hearing a nearby study group converse about chemistry left me feeling so nostalgic. I wish that my biggest concern was just memorizing again. Now, I actually have to understand.
I can’t believe it’s only been like a week in school and I’m having so much trouble in my classes. Braindead happens during exam week, not the second of school!
After failing to solve several problems, I have resorted to googling answers and a solution manual. So far, I’m in no luck, but I did find solutions for another one of my classes, so I guess that’s some luck.
I probably spent more time searching for solutions than actually trying to solve the problems. No wonder I’m stupid.
That’s right. Math class. Specifically, linear algebra. I just got into this class on Friday, so I haven’t attended a single class, but since I missed out on class, I have to do 2 homeworks instead of 1. They’re interesting, and I have no idea what my professor’s intentions are with the assignments. The first homework has 2 problems. One is to write about 2 things of importance to you (like family/friend relationships, sports, education, etc). The other is to write a proof. How do you write a proof? Fuck if I know. The second homework is to read 6 pages of this article and write a page about it. It’s actually really interesting. If you guys are bored: http://www.maa.org/devlin/LockhartsLament.pdf. I only read the first 3 pages, so I actually don’t really know what this article is fully about, but from the pages I read, it’s talking about how our education system is corrupt.
A lot of them are catchy, thus why they’re mainstream in the first place. A lot of them are annoying as heck. It’s good music the first couple of times, but it’s always overplayed, so I end up hating a lot of mainstream songs. Good for listening to in the car, good for singing, and good for dancing.
I think people should listen to other songs though. I know it’s really bad, but I don’t like it when people just listen to mainstream stuff. Expand your horizons, and you never know what you might like!
