Getting better

For the past several weeks, I’ve felt like absolute crap, but I’ve mostly accepted the breakup (this will be the last post about it, I swear :)) ) I realized there was more bad than good and it’s time to move on finally. The fact that my doctor switched/increased some of my medications have helped also.

I’m also looking forward to being closer to finishing my JavaScript class, one week left. Hopefully I can pull through and move on my last class. If everything goes well, I should graduate in April. It’s been a long hard road but I think I can do it.

New phone and Windows 8

I had an all touch screen phone for almost two years now, and it was becoming unresponsive and I even had trouble making calls. I figured it was time for an upgrade, so I got the Droid 4. I really like having a keyboard phone again, I’ve always struggled to type on touch screens for some reason. I have a feeling keyboard phones are going to be non-existent soon, so that’s why I wanted to get one while I can. I understand the all touch screen thing is most popular, but some people have trouble with them like me. I’m really liking my new phone and texting is no longer a headache.

I also upgraded to Windows 8, I got a really great deal from my student store, I only had to pay $25 for it. I don’t think it’s anything spectacular, and find it more difficult to access my stuff, but I’ll get used to it. I’m glad I didn’t spend much because honestly I was expecting more. If you’re thinking of upgrading, I’d recommend that you don’t unless you get it really cheap, but that’s just me.

Maybe there’s some hope after all

The assignment in my JavaScript class I was stressing about I ended up getting an A on. I’m not sure I pulled that one off, but maybe I’m getting the hang of this JavaScript stuff. My grade went from a C to a B-. I’m really trying, and am hoping I can keep my grade up so I can pass this class because I’m close to graduating. I’m enjoying my holiday break, I don’t have to go back to school until the 6th, but a part of me kind of misses it. The break was really needed though because I was so stressed.

My last class I chose will be another psychology class. I took one in my first year and got an A, so I figured it would be a good choice. I can’t wait to be done with IT classes. I didn’t know this web design degree was so focused on coding, I wish I would have taken graphic design instead because I find that more enjoyable.

I’m also looking forward to the new year, 2012 has not been good to me (dropped/failed classes, financial troubles, mental health issues) and am hoping better things are to come. My New Year’s resolution is to quit smoking, I really need to for my health and financial situation. I know I can do it, it’s just going to be hard.

Oops

I had a large reseller I wasn’t using anymore since I’m not as big on blogging as I used to be, so I moved to a smaller host. I did a backup, but I guess something went wrong because I lost my new theme as well as posts. Once I’m done with school (one class almost done, two more to go!) I’ll be in the mood to work on this site more. With homework and other stuff I haven’t felt like it.

Anyway, this Thanksgiving I don’t plan on doing much except cook dinner for myself. My parents have moved back to Pennsylvania so we won’t be spending holidays together. It sucks, but I think staying in Arizona is best for me. I just can’t take cold weather anymore. Speaking of cold, I wish my landlord would turn the heat on, it’s been getting so chilly at night. I live in a converted resort complex with all utilities included, so the landlord controls the air conditioning and heat. I think their reason for not turning the heat on yet is a bit stupid (they want our apartments to be comfortable for Thanksgiving cooking) and not a valid reason for freezing every night. Oh well, I got myself an electric blanket and that’s all I can do for now. Happy Thanksgiving in advance.

Blah

I have been feeling blah lately, I think it’s because of a new medication the doctor gave me. I’ve been on it for only a week so I want to give it more of a chance. If I’m still feeling blah next week, I’m calling the doctor. I’m also worried about losing some of my medical coverage because I’m a student. They requested that I send in what I get for financial aid and cost of tuition. I’m waiting to hear back from them. I’ll be upset if I lose some medical coverage because I get grants to help pay for school (that are all used for classes and books). If I do lose it, I still have a backup but I will have to find new doctors and the costs will go up a lot.

The other night I went to see Impending Doom because I won’t be going to the Metal Alliance Tour or Warped Tour. It was fun and not very crowded which was good. I saw the lineup for the Mayhem Festival, it has a few of my favorite bands but I can’t go. Outdoor festivals in 115 degree heat are just not for me. I will wait for smaller tours at indoor venues. I remember in 2010 I went to Warped Tour, I basically spent $35 to hang out in the bathroom to get out of the sun and splash cold water on my face. I had to leave after 2 hours because I got sick from the heat. It’s just not worth it. Summers here are absolutely brutal. #:-S
