So now that I’m done with school the real work begins…yep… JOB HUNTING… The single most soul crushing experience I’ve ever had to subject myself to. No really, if you do it right it’ll have you feeling like you’ve completely wasted your entire life on meaningless things… All the jobs I’ve applied for thus far either require experience that can only be obtained by working said job or it’s a job specifically for recent grads but they require 20 years of experience. Mind you I’m 25, so in order for that to happen, I’d have had to have started working when I was 5, maybe 4 1/2, if you’re a real go-getter… Ugh just give me the job already…
In other, slightly less depressing news, my graduation is on May 12th! Yay! My family is coming into town for the event and a few friends will swing by to watch me strut across the stage too! So just a few days and a few steps stand between me and my diploma! I can’t wait do be done with school…at least for a little while anyway. 🙂
I also saw Captain America Civil War on Thursday, it was awesome! I finally feel like we got a perfect depiction of Spider-Man! See, proof that not every superhero needs his/her own stand alone movie, look at Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk…he was a SMASH! (I’m sorry, I promise I won’t do that again…)

I am so glad that this week is over! So much for having free time to play games this week… Life saw that I had free time and did its damnedest to eliminate any hope of enjoying it! It seems like all of my school assignments were all due on Wednesday! EVERY SINGLE ONE! I had a presentation on Wednesday for a Worksite Wellness program I created and then I had an interview, which I’m pretty sure I bombed…But, the worst assignment by far has been my Big Graduation Research project! My professor ripped our paper a new one, so as a collective my team and I had over 100 revisions to make! I wanted to cry when I saw all the stuff she wanted us to change…
I managed to muddle through it all, only to realize that I have finals coming up soon that I have to study for…So what little free time I had left was devoted to playing Starry Sky in Spring…and like a fool buying more new games…

Here we are again at the end of another week…I just started a Behavior Change Project for school, I decided to add more walking into my day, and I have managed to walk for at least 30 mins everyday this week! Yay me! I also managed to write absolutely nothing for my portion of the results section of my Big Graduation Research Project…motivation levels were especially low for this assignment…
I went to a party last night where I did some Backstreet Boys Karaoke…it was awesome, but I have to admit that I’m a tad bit tone deaf…But people were in to it nonetheless!

Here we are once again at the end of another week…I always plan on writing these posts in advanced, but life has a funny way of stopping that from happening. So here I am, again, at the last possible minute scrambling to get this weekly recap finished…
So, we’ve finally graduated from the data analysis portion of my final research assignment.
Now, we’ve moved on to the writing portion of the project. Sounds easy enough in theory, but unfortunately that is not so much the case. We used a well known dataset to run our analysis, so that means there are hundreds of papers that have already been written using said dataset. So, my task is to cover the same information about the dataset as the other papers have, without accidentally plagiarizing any of it! There are only so many was to say “X sampling method was used in Y country” or “a nationally representative sample of X was selected from Y, using Z…”

So this has been a busy week what with school work and Katsucon, but I managed to get through it alright.
I just finished part 2 of a really big data coding project…I would have been done on Thursday, but I accidentally wrote down the wrong rows of numbers for two tables…so I had to go back and re-run all three datasets twice (once for boys and once for girls). But now that it’s finally over with I can finally relax and enjoy my games and recent manga conquests!

So this semester the professors have turned it up to 11 with the amount of work they want! One professor has assigned THREE papers within a week of each other and they are all due sometime at the end of the month!
Yeah I feel ya Bro!
I mean come on, can I finish the first paper BEFORE you give me another one?!? And that’s just one class! I’m taking four (for grad school that’s a lot).
Then there is work..Let’s not get started on the personal hell that place is, but it pays the rent and supports my habit…so that is an inevitability…
So where am I going with this?
Nowhere really…I just wanted to rant! But I suppose if I had to come up with something on the pop fly, it would be that:
I may be slow about posting for a little bit, at least until I get my assignments started. In the event that I do post something there is a strong possibility that I will be procrastinating on some paper or another or clearing out my drafts.
All rights on that to TomLedin!!!
