Now, I'm not an architect, but I don't think my AutoCAD can turn renders into drawings. LOL

I just did my first final.... I only had to bullsh*t 30% of it, so I should be getting an 80%. LOL 

That is the Fairbank Equation

Grade=100-Bullsh*t%+(1/3*Bullsh*t%)

That wasn't done on AutoCAD, it was an ink on mylar perspective I drew for my last class which was a design competition for a riverboat center for New Orleans.  But it was basically my final final.  I was part of a team.  Wasn't the winner Cry but I got a C.

Why couldn't you simplify it Big smile ?

Grade=100-(2/3)*Bullsh*t%

I always used 1/4 to account for things I thought I knew but got wrong (by misreading the question, for example).

Ah yes, the infamous Senior Design Class. Had my own as a chemical engineer. My group won, but there were only 9 groups.

Unbelievable. Our CPE301 lecture guy is trying to explain to us certain specifics of a UART he himself does not entirely understand. ... Wacko ... Go figure.

This is why college GPA does not correlate to job performance!

//EDIT: OK, that sounds bad. LOL I'm just saying that it GPA doesn't actually mean much of anything. Congratulations anyway. Embarrassed

I don't know. I actually have a couple gig, somehow. Not paying yet, but who knows for the future. These days you kind of need to be able to give the first hit away for free almost. If I manage to get a job doing what I do, I'm going to chalk it up to some random celestial event. Stumbling into success...

you have very good taste in women for a high schooler. Ellen Page Handshake She is like the Greek Statue version of every girl I've ever liked jumbled together, essence imparted. Audrey or whatever her name is... she's cute too.

But enough about me (and Ellen).

I can't remember high school, so I can't say if the finals were stressful. Which probably means they weren't as bad. Then again. I was never so nervous as before this round, because of how bad I did last time, and the differing types of classes involved for me this time.

I had 3 finals today and I wrote a 700 word letter to a friend.

I'm pooped. Chinese food and star trek was a worthy reward.

CryToday I packed up my provocative secret Communist posters and threw away 50 pounds of paper from the last two semesters. I'm moving out tomorrow around noon time and I go back to rural/suburban fusion on a literal island of boredom.

And I have the worst and hardest final still to do!

And I only have 3 bucks in my bank account! That's It!

And...... oh wait there's nothing else.

I started listening to Floyd in middle school. I was like twelve. I got really obsessed with them (and remained so), but I got scared when I watched the Wall movie. Maybe it was too young, but then I had listened to edgy adult music since I was 0. Even before that I was into Talking Heads (Psycho Killer!)

I was 12 when The Wall first came out in the theaters, and my dad took me to see it, my first "R" rated movie.  I loved the Floyd and the movie was cool but parts of it spooked my socks off.

I'm also 12, although, not to sound pretentious or anything, I've always been more mature than the rest of kids my age. I'm not a huge Floyd fan but I saw The Wall on Youtube about two years ago. I'd already seen my first R rated film by then (Excalibur). And yes, Talk Heads are AWESOME!
