Busy Semester

This semester is busy. You can see that from, my title and lack of posting. I have decided to drop one of my six classes and focus more on the other five. And possibly give me some more me time and time to write more.
Also this week, i traded in my old phone for a BlackBerry, which has not left my side for about two day in a row. I can see why our president is addicted to this little device. It is amazing.
Now i can post to my blog from my phone and on the go, so i don’t have to make special time to sit down and write. Hopefully i will be able to do more writing that way. hopefully.

A Clear and Present Danger

The beginning of Fugitives seems promising. It does have a bit of a Prison Break season two feel, but it think this will make it all that more interesting. One thing that caught me by surprise is that Bennet is working with the Hunter and with Nathan, i did not see that one comming.

Of course i want to know: How the hell did Syalr survive!? He was cut ff from his ability and then burned, that would have left him at a chared mess if not ash, yet somehow, he’s out to find his real parents. Oh, and i have a theory. Remember back in season one when Brody (SP?) kills Claire and she wakes up in a autopsy table where she comes back? Well, I’m guessing same thing happened to Sylar.

In Villains, Sylar was a bit annoying, but now that’s he’s back on his own, i am very happy. The best part of the episode was when the Hunter’s men tried to take him down and failed miserably. That one action packed minute gave me a new-found respect for Sylar, especially after being  such a pathetic fighter in Villains. The best line from the show is probably, Sylar’s “Uh, a challenge, i do love a challenge”

Anyway. I’ve been missing Supernaturla because i have class at that time. Actually i have class during Heroes, but this week i missed the bus and didn’t go to class because of that. An no, i did not miss the bus on purpose.

Long Time Gone.

Its seems that as soon as Heroes was over I stopped blogging and then, today, one day Before Fugitive’s starts, I come back.

Well, I have a reason for that, I’ve been busy, terribly terribly busy.

My life has been yanked out of its cyclical routine and I was completely dazed and lost, and forgot to come here. It’s a new semester you see, and it looks like, unlike last semester, this one is going to be GOOD!!

I am taking six classes, a full eighteen credit hours, and across three campuses too: One at Downtown, Two at West and three in Main. Which means that I’ve become very familiar with the new Light Rail and the Shuttles that ASU provides.

So this semester I’m taking:

STP 226: Elements of Statistics, which seems fun and I am enjoying, strange, because I usually hate math.

ASM 455: Primate Behavior Lab, which rocks!!! Because Dr. Nash is the instructor and its already a major challenge, making it my hardest class this semester.

ASB 102, because I got bored last semester and failed it. This semester I have a good teacher and the classroom is not full of idiots.

SPA 413: Advanced Spanish Grammar, and yes I very much like it.

SPA 426: Spanish Literature from 1700 to Present, which seems like it will be very interesting, plus the teacher is way smart, and a tad bitchy.

ENG 102: Composition, because I finally finished 101! Yay!!

I’ve also discovered that my much planned and expected trip to London may not work out, because I have no money, well, I have money, just not enough, Britain will have to wait for me, unless I can talk people into giving me money. And a lot of it, right now I’m a whole two thousand dollars short. I may have to find another way for getting the hell out of America. I will try and I swear I will go to London soon, maybe in the Summer if I can find those 2k’s or the Fall semester.

I went to see Underworld: Rise of the Lycans and loved it!! I also went to see Slumdog Millionaire, and I absolutely loved it (they will each get a post later on, after Heroes: Fugitives ep. 1)

The Borders closest to me closed about five hours ago, permanently. I am very, very sad and require coffee to cheer me up. 😦

I’ve read more of Le Guin’s Works, including The Tombs of Atuan, Very Far Away From Anywhere Else, Gifts, and I’m working on The Telling, Changing Planes and The Word for World is Forest.

Oh and January 20 was one of the HAPPIEST DAYS OF MY LIFE!! PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA!!!!

I was very pleased when he cut salaries and finally closed Gitmo! It looks as if America will finally grow a backbone and start respecting Human and Civil Rights. I was disappointed when Obama replied to Hugo Chavez’s congratulations by saying that he (Chavez) was impeding progress in South America, in fact, I’m still pissed at Obama for that, he really needs to stop making the same shitty mistakes that Bush made by pissing off Latin America.

For now, that’s all because it’s very late, or very early depends on how you look at it, either way i WANT COFFEE!!!!

Ciao.
