Time to write to try to make myself sleepy.

So.... I know I totally bombed at least one test... But then again, I did great on another so... I guess it evens out? I did the math and even if I get a 50% on my final in calculus I'll get a B so I guess there's not much to worry when it comes to that class, as long as I do all my homework and get 100% on them, which is easy, just time consuming.  So it's 10:30 at night, not late.. But I'd like to go to bed early and maybe get up early to do some extra homework. If I want to get all of my calculus homework done in seven days, I have to do about 47 calculus problems a day. It's not all due in seven days, but I'd like to get it done by then. I just need to make sure I break those 47 problems throughout the day, if I try to do them all at once everyday I'll burn myself out. Few problems here, few problems there, do some other studying. I have nothing going on since I'm still recovering from surgery (no work) so I have no excuse to not be studying a LOT. And with finals coming up in two weeks, I SHOULD be studying a LOT, so I'm going to dammit!

Now that I've got that out of the way... I'm pretty sure I'll finish this semester with a 3.25 of a 3.5 GPA. The 3.5 is POSSIBLE, but VERY VERY VERY unlikely.. I have to do EXCEPTIONALLY WELL on my chemistry final to manage a high B so my teacher will curve me up to an A. That'll get me my second A for the semester and bring my GPA to a 3.5. Good luck to me!

Moving on... Today I got back from a little day vacation with Jeremiah to Barona. It was nice. We went gambling on the casino's dime and went home with $600. We started with $100 in comp cash to Jeremiah, so the money was all his; but he gave me $100 of the winnings when we left since I gambled with it too and helped with that $600 he walked out with. That and he owed me fifty bucks. Heh. Anyway, we went the day before, got a comped hotel room, comped buffet dinner, comped gambling money. The only thing either of us spent money on was gas to get there and back; and considering how much we went home with, I'm not complaining.

So, I'm listening to this video on youtube by the Piano Guys, they're quite amazing. I'm currently listening to their version of "Bring him Home" from Les Misérables... It's beautiful.

Onward.. I guess I don't really have much to talk about... While we were on our little day vacation I must have eaten something I shouldn't have because my stomach started hurting and I didn't feel well for a few hours, which made me feel even worse that my poor mood was bringing Jeremiah down... I really really hate it when something beyond my control happens, but it doesn't just effect me negatively, but in turn effects Jeremiah. I just end up feeling worse because of the guilt.

Once the semester's over, I'm debating what I want to do.. I'm pretty sure I'm going to try to pick up a second job that I can work in the evenings, so long as it doesn't effect my availability of my primary animal care job. Maybe I can get a second animal care job for the evenings, that will be difficult, but it's not impossible. Maybe even just a job delivering pizzas, if I went with that, I could listen to books on tape in my car, I just wonder if the pay will be worth the wear and tear on my car...

I keep getting distracted from writing, and now it's 11:15 at night. I went off onto craigslist and started looking up available night jobs. I'll probably start donating blood and stuff too, because you get paid like.. 20 bucks each time you do it. You can donate plasma twice in seven days, but blood only once every 8 weeks.. Either way, that's an extra 40 bucks a week I could be making just from plasma, if I did it twice a week every week. That's 160 bucks a month of extra money. I wonder if you have to report that money on taxes, or if it's over the counter... Hmm.. Either way, my focus for the next month (once class ends) is to make as much money as I can. Gonna be having a garage sale soon too.

It's funny, my blog is called "Zombies, dogs, and stuff" and I haven't talked about zombies or dogs really.. Heh... Well, tomorrow is pictures with santa for the dogs! We'll have pics of Athena and Koi with santa! :D This isn't really working for trying to make myself sleepy.. At all.... Gah! That's frustrating! Ok ok so what's on my mind.. Money.. I need to make more of it. Before that, study for finals. Pretty straight forward December if you ask me. I hate being motivate to do one thing, and it's the second step of the plan. I'm motivated to make money NOW but I have to finish out the semester FIRST. Blah. Isn't it frustrating how motivation work that way? It's funny, despite how much I love video games, I haven't played any in months. I played a LITTLE of Skyrim and less of Dead Island, which sucks, I love achievement hunting and life's been WAY too busy for it. At least I can prioritize my school over my games, hahaha.

Either way... I'm going to TRY to get some sleep now... Goodnight!
