The semester is done and my grades are officially posted. I got A's in my creative writing class and the public speaking course. I ended up getting a B for the semester in the paralegal class. I do feel an overwhelming sense of relief that I'm finally on winter break as this semester took a lot out of me.
I'm going to try and just relax and enjoy the break before next semester. Next semester I decided to just take a one credit hour course. It is a new student seminar that is…Continue

This semester has certainly tested me. I started off with four classes and ended up dropping the computer class to ease my work load. As of right now I am getting an A in my creative writing class, a B in my public speaking class, and another B in my paralegal studies course. As much as I scrutinize myself for the two B's, overall I think I'm doing very well considering the amount of stress I have been under.
I am definitely ready for this semester to be over. I already have…Continue
I have been under a lot of pressure in school. I think this has a good and bad side to it. On one hand it can be a motivational factor to do well and so far, I have done just that, with an A in my creative writing class and a B in my public speaking class, as well as the intro to paralegal course. However, this pressure has led me to be pretty overwhelmed as I'm finishing up my research and writing up an outline for my first major speech due Tuesday.Because of all this work, I will be off…Continue

I have been consumed by my responsibilities as a full time student. This has caused me a lot of stress, but I think I'm finally settling into it. I had some early setbacks in my computer class, but I have been able to rebound. My midterm grades will be posted on the college website the second week in October so I'm looking forward to that.
A few weeks ago, I went with a volunteer group to a small town that had been hit by a tornado last year. It was a very rewarding experience…Continue

I have been under quite a bit of stress in recent weeks with school. I had my first quiz in my paralegal studies class that I did very well on. It was so much easier than I expected. I also got some extra credit for the class. I am demolishing my English class (creative writing) and I'm starting to get bored with how easy the English classes are for me. I am thinking about trying to get into an honors English class just to try and challenge myself.
My other classes are going…Continue

I just wanted to give a quick update on what has been going on in my life (do you even care to read this crap?!) and what is to come.
I had mentioned that I was preparing for a study abroad trip to France this semester in my last vlog, well those plans fell through as my application for the program was denied. The good news is that I will be almost certain to go next year. This may sound like a bummer,and while I do think it was disappointing, things ultimately worked out for…Continue

First I would like to give a disclaimer. I'm still forming some of my political views so this manifesto is a work in progress. These views are subjective and so there is room for improvement. Here goes.
First I want to go over some of my thoughts on America's current administration and president Obama. As most of you have figured out by now I'm not exactly fond of the guy. I do think I second guess myself concerning what I think of him as far as specifics. One thing is clear.…Continue
I have had a very long day so I thought I'd share in my adventures. The first thing I did was to go and pick up my measly paycheck and deposit it. After that I had some time to relax before I went to a meeting regarding my trip to France. At the meeting I got a ton of information about the trip and was able to offer some constructive criticism of how badly it was organized.
When I was done with that meeting I went to my car to drive to the main building for a meeting with my…Continue

I thought I'd write this up as I have discussed it with a few people on Facebook, mainly religious people wondering, "OMG! You don't believe the very things that I believe! What is wrong with you?!"
First I will say that for as long as I have been an atheist, I don't even remember where I first heard about atheism. I know I announced my atheism, as well as my anarchist views, in middle school. At the time I think I went with atheism to "stand out" so to speak and I just loved…Continue

The community college I attend is organizing a nine day study abroad trip to Lillie, France and I have just signed up for one of the two classes. I still need to go through an application process for the trip as well as get a passport. I am incredibly excited about the prospect of seeing another country because I have never been outside of the U.S. I think this will give me the opportunity to get a fresh perspective on the world and perhaps come home and see my country with new…Continue
As some of you know, I got a letter in the mail that I made the Dean's list at school last semester. I did think it was cool and all, but I also don't see the big deal. All it is is a piece of paper and my name on the school website. Now "the bar has been set" as my academic adviser put it.
I have also become addicted to Game of Thrones. This is seriously the best show I have seen in a very long time. I love the dire wolves. I have finished with the first season and I'm…Continue

I'm all signed up for classes next semester. I know I mentioned the computer class as well as the paralegal course already, but on top of those two I have added two more to go back full time. The two additional classes are, fundamentals of public speaking and creative writing.
I am not really looking forward to the public speaking class as it is not something I am good at. However, I think that if I work at it I can do a good job. I did take a speech class in my Sr.…Continue

If you get that reference I will love you forever, at least until you get on my bad side, then I will find you and hurt you. Any who!
I am impatiently awaiting my final grade in my English class. If it is anything less than an A I am going to challenge it. I do suspect that my professor did not take too kindly to me slamming patriotism as something I was toying with as a topic. I do know that after I I had mentioned that as a possibility my grade started to slip a bit. I end…Continue
A lot has happened since my last blog post. I continue to do well on my ethics papers as so far I have eight papers graded and all of them are perfect 10/10's. I am also slaughtering my English class with a 97%, but I expect that from myself. I am an English major after all.
I know in a previous blog I had mentioned that I was torn between English and paralegal as a major because of what they both had to offer. English for writing (passion), or paralegal (practicality) for…Continue

So you can finally read my network neutrality informative essay!
Here it is.
I hope that works.

Well, midterm has come and gone and I'm doing quite well. I ended up getting an A on my network neutrality informative essay and my overall grade for the English class at midterm was 97%. Going into my ethics midterm I had a 100% with four 10/10 papers. I ended up getting an 88% on the midterm and now I'm getting a 91% in that class.
I was originally going to do my persuasive essay on the dangers of patriotism but when we came back from spring break my English professor…Continue

I have not posted in a while so I wanted to get something down on here. I'm finally on spring break for school. My parents took me out to dinner at a Mexican restaurant to celebrate my efforts in school and work. I was a bit surprised by this because it was my dad's idea. He and I have a very distant relationship so it was an interesting experience for me.
I don't have my midterm grade yet for my English class but I expect I'll do well on the final draft of my network…Continue
This question might be hard to find an answer to, so i made a checklist, and did a thorough (it's a bit of a stretch of the word) analysis of my environment, and the state. I did this to see, if the people that's been making the laws, can be said to be true representations of the people.
I know it isn't even spring yet but I think I'll go over my plans for the summer. I had originally planned on taking three classes for the summer but I found out that the summer classes are 8 week intensive courses instead of the usual 16 weeks. I had planned on taking the math class during the summer but I have decided against it. Now I plan on just working during the summer. I'm also going to brush up on my math skills so I am prepared for the math course. I know I am capable of doing…Continue

Time for an update! I am demolishing my English class so far with 64.5/65 points possible and I'm starting my first major assignment for the class. The assignment is a 5-7 page informative essay. The topic I chose for my paper is network neutrality. I chose this topic because I think it will be good for me to learn more about network neutrality while enlightening others about the issue. In my ethics class I turned in my first paper last Tuesday but I won't get it back until this upcoming…Continue
