children of dune - leto 1

it's a very long entry

So my life is not quite a simmering cesspool. *narrowed eyes* Yet.

1.) Make up C++ test. It tricked me. The multiple choice was all oooh, I know this, and then boom, six essay questions. Six. Essay. Questions.

To explain the horror; I learn practically, not theoretically. All except *one* would have been easy if I had my compiler in hand. One was a theoretical construction of a flowchart that was incorrect and we ahd to correct it. I don't even want to talk about how I stared at it and tried not to cry, becuase serious. Theoretical. Construct. Of. A. Flowchart. With no pseudocode. Dear God.

2.) Lab test, otoh, was easy, so hopefully it will balance, provided that I didn't make egrerious coding mistakes. I ran it so I know it worked, but we lose points for inefficiency. Hmm.

3.) I have to have a team mate for the next project. The guy I tutored looked abashed and said he had wanted to call and ask me to be his partner but no one was sure when I'd be back in class. So I get one assigned on Thursday--unless I finish the entire thing myself. Which I am trying to do.

4. Work is--odd. I really have no words there.

5. The guy mentioned above I suddenly realized is really, really hot. Jesus God, that's two. The odd part is, I didn't notice at all when we met or after spending two hours with him. We walked together after class and talked about his dad having pneumonia and he kind of completely missed his turn-of to get to his car. I feel very sixteen. When I was sixteen, I used to mock male intelligence a lot; it was a very uneffective method of flirtation. This cannot end well.

6. John the laptop is starting to worry me. I knew I'd need a new one soon, but the overwarm hard drive and blue screens of death recently is getting me very, very nervous. I explained he has to wait until after Christmas, but--ooh. *chews nails* Not good.

And that covers life to date. Staring at FBI hookerfic with the knowledge that yes, I am so up for being mocked aftr my meta performance on rape and hookerfic. OTOH, weirdly, I'm always attracted to writing what freaks me out, so maybe not a surprise.
