Tests are over and it's the weekend...YAY

Well my co-op interviews went ok. I should hear back in a week or so. I'm kinda excited but then again really nervous. I am so glad it's the weekend. I had a test last night at 8 and then another one this morning at 10. I'm pretty sure I bombed them both. The one doesn't really matter, my final will replace all my test grades and by that point I think I will have a better understanding of things and be able to kick ass on the final.
The other test...well it was weird. A few of the questions were super easy, but the other ones were like proofs and crap and I had no clue how to do them. Not to mention that my teacher is super weird and is not the best teacher. Oh well....I think I will just pray for a curve.
The good news is that its the weekend and i can relax a little. Some of the girls are getting together for a sleep over tonight. I haven't decided if I want to go or not....I have a lot of homework that I need to catch up on and tomorrow my group has to finish our C++ project and I have dinner plans tomorrow night with some friends.
I should be doing some homework now but i am being lazy and playing on the computer. Hopefully next week won't be so bad. I don't think I have any tests but I do have lab and a couple of homework assignments due. My midterm grades were all B's that is considerably better than last semester. I'm pretty excited about that. I just have to keep it up and pull them up to A's...hmm I think we'll have to see about that.

Nervously Waiting......

So I am nervously awaiting my co-op interviews tomorrow. I am so nervous, but really I don't know why. I shouldn't be. They are all going to be in one big room and should only last about 30 minutes. I think I am more worried about picking the wrong company than anything. I just don't want to agree to work somewhere for 3 semesters and end up hating it. Oh well I guess that is how life works and I am just going to have to get over it and take that next step. I can do it, I am not unable to make decisions, I just want to be sure that I am making the right one. Maybe one of theme won't be so bad. I am going tonight to a info session for Southern Co. I will get to meet my interviewer and that kind of thing so maybe that will help.
I know that co-op is the best decision as far as gaining experience and being able to get a better job when I graduate.

So I should find out what I made on my Cal test today. I am pretty excited about that. I feel like I did well, but be my luck Dr. Wong will hand it back and it will look like someone was massacred on it from all the red marks. Hopefully not.
No lab today YAY!!!
Tonight Jess, Nikki, and I are cooking dinner for some friends and then I think we are going to watch a movie. Jess and I are making taco lasagna....a Rachael Ray creation and Nikki is making her ever so famous apple dumplings....yum o. Jess has been spending a lot of time over here lately. I love it. It was getting boring with just roomie and me.
So roomie might be getting a dog.....her boyfriend bought her a dog for Valentines day. I really hate dogs and don't want one living in the house. I think it will make our apt smells even worse than it already does.
I am doing so much better this semester as far as grades and stress goes. I actually don't have homework running out my ears and my grades are looking better. Now don't get me wrong, I do have homework and a lot of it at that but I just seem to have more time to do it and my tests are spread out more. I have 1 or 2 a week not 3 and 4.
I do have a linear test this fri....keep your fingers crossed on that one...its either going to be really easy or way off the charts hard.
Well I gotta get off this computer and get ready to go to class...... :)

Rainy Day in T-town

It's cold outside and raining. My two least favorite weather conditions. I haven't blogged in a while. School is keeping me busy. If I'm not studying for a test I am working on my CS project. Luckily it's a group project this time. My grades are looking a little better this semester. I'm pretty sure I made an A on my cal 3 test Wednesday. That will be 2 A's in that class. My CS 124 test did npt go so well, but it won't matter in the end cause my final will replace all the grades and by then I will understand the material better.
I have a linear test next friday. I'm am pretty much freaking out as well as the rest of the class cause teacher is weirdo dude that wears the same shirt everyday. There are only 2 test and a final. We have been in this class for almost 2 months and we are just now taking a test and he said that he couldn't give us any old tests or practice tests and that he would only do a small 15 minute review. He can't even work out a problem in 15 min. He assigns homework problems that he can't even work out when we ask him questions. I guess I will just have to pray to the linear algebra gods this weekend and sleep on my book so maybe all the stuff will sink in.

I also have co-op interviews coming up next week. I am pretty nervous about that. I just don't want to make the wrong decision with that because most companies want you to work with them for 3 semesters and I don't want to be stuck working somewhere that I am not happy. I also don't know how the living arrangements will work out. The only local company that I want to work for is Mercedes and I have heard through the ever so famous twisted grapevine that they do not usually hire their co-ops and that it is extremely difficult to get hired in the first place. I think my best bet will be somewhere in Huntsville. Although there is a pretty good company called Southern Company and they are located all over the South East. I'm pretty sure that they have a place in Birmingham. I have heard that they are good to work for. I really wanted to work with Adtran in Huntsville but their interview slots were filled up. Oh well something will work out. I'm just going to interview and see what I get and go from there.

It's been a while

Wow! I haven't blogged in over a week. So much has been going on. School has kept me so busy. Maybe I should just back up to the weekend. I went home and me and my parents and Brittany went out to dinner at PF Changs for my birthday. It was so good. It was Brittany's first time eating Chinese and even my dad liked it. Brittany straightened my hair for the first successful time ever. It actually looked good and I loved it. I kept it that way till Monday so my friends could see it. They loved it as well. So I guess I am about to be investing in a new straightner and and whatever it was that Britt used on my hair.
Well the weekend was short and now its the middle of the week. I have discovered that tuesday labs suck. I thought doing them in the begining of the week would be fun but no it just makes things hectic. I wasn't thinking about lab reports and pre-labs and all that stuff.

I just need the weekend to come so I can get caught up on some homework and stuff.

Cal test went well

I made a 90 on my cal 3 test.....YAY for me!!! I am so excited. My birthday weekend kinda sucked though. I was sick most of the time. I had the horrible chest cold that everyone has. Friday night we had a little birthday party at a friends house, but of course I was sick and just fell asleep. My fever came back about 11:00 that night and didn't go away till about 4:30 Saturday morning so I didn't sleep good at all. I would wake up freezing and then wake up sweating off and on all night long. I slept saturday morning till about noon. Jess was dying to take me out to eat for my birthday so we went to logans. Jess bought me cookie cake,yummy. Sunday was my birthday. I didn't do much, just some homework and then went to a friends house to watch the Super Bowl. It was weird to be sick and it be my birthday without my mom here...:( I was kinda sad.
