I got A- in both of my classes last semester.

It still counts as straight As even if I only took two classes, right?

This has never happened before. tongue.gif

So about the thing I rambled about on the previous page. The official linguistics olympiad results from the entire country are now up on their website... I'm 15th out of 1331 people and am going to Prague in February to solve the regional round! blink.gif Considering I did this for the lulz and expected nothing, that's... pretty damn decent. I might even feel proud for once. *tries to feel proud*

 

Funny thing though: they managed to misspell my last name on the list! xd.png I've seen my name botched in a few ways, but never like that. Wonder if I should send them an email or just leave it... Should I get one, I do NOT want this on my certificate!

I just got back from the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans, LA, had a boozing good time, and now I get to go to Dallas, Texas for the National Championship!!! I play in the marching band for Ohio State, so we get to go for free and get money for food for all bowl games.

 

And my mom wonders why I don't want to graduate yet....free paid vacations!! with all my friends biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

Kind of late with these, but... I made dean's list for the fall 2014 semester! Also, my (then) boyfriend of over a decade proposed to me at an anime con in March, and surprised me with my dream ring! wub.gif

I worked all my scheduled days/hours last week and I'm on the right path to do so this week as well. Because of my illness this hasn't happened in awhile, so I'm kinda really really excited that I can do it!

Well, I don't have much I could brag about, but there is one thing that comes to mind. I took a series of tests designed to measure my talents and intelligence, and my scores were so high my instructor had a mini-freak out. xd.png She said she had never seen scores so high before. So...there's that!

I think this thread is so great but can't recall if I've ever actually replied here.

I think I should brag about the fact that even when I think I'm a failure, I'm still pretty great. This is academically speaking. I am a good test taker, and stuff comes easily to me, and I have the privilege of just being good at school. I'm not necessarily more intelligent than my peers but some people struggle with school and its emphasis on test performance, and I don't, and I'm grateful for that.

Also, I want to brag about my girlfriend, because she's very lovely (and hot as heck) and I'm really proud to be with her. She's too good for me tbh, how did I ever get her? rolleyes.gif

I had an unusually good day today~ I passed the practical portion of my Lab Procedures final (we had to do a complete urinalysis; correctly make and stain a blood smear; do a packed cell volume and total protein (both procedures for blood); and then examine under a microscope: a urine sample provided by the teacher (accurately recording what we saw), and 10 different slides, each of which contained either a blood smear or a cytology sample and answer the questions on the sticky note next to each slide.

 

Then in my next class I got the last two blood draws I needed to pass my Small Animal Care II class. We have to get at least 1 mL of blood each from a dog or cat's cephalic vein (in the front leg), lateral saphenous (outside of the hind leg in dogs) or medial saphenous (inside of the hind leg in cats, and the jugular (in the throat). I got my saphenous from an adorable Shiba Inu and my own cat provided my jugular draw. I'm particularly excited about that one because cats are usually harder to draw from than dogs because they have smaller veins and they are naturally a little more dehydrated than dogs (according to a friend in my class who works as a vet assistant).

 

I have 2 more practical finals tomorrow both of which are super easy. Setting up and examining fecals are a piece of (disgusting) cake and setting up the anesthesia machine is even easier~

I have just been told that my writing skills are even better than those of my grandparent (he mostly writes poetry and short stories that have a certain name but I'm not sure of it in English) and I've got some offers about having a book of short SFs I've made some weeks ago ^^

 

Also,my grandparent's newest book will be published soon, the cover being drawn by me.

Today, I am the adultiest adult to ever adult.

 

I groomed myself well, wore shoes (ok that never happens, just let me enjoy the novelty of it for a moment), drove my butt alone to Kroger, did ALL the shopping, didn't have a panic attack when the cashier asked me out to a movie, drove myself home, carried in ALL the groceries alone, put them up immediately, and then had a sensible snack that came to about 110 calories.

 

YES. I DID THE THINGS. I AM THE GREATEST. LOOK AT ME ADULTING!

I made a modification for Minecraft which was seen by more than around 20 - 30 million people. It all started when a guy with 11 million subscribers (SkyDoesMinecraft) on YouTube saw it and did a whole video about it, and it led to PopularMMOs doing a video and even TheDiamondMinecart.

It's called the Rainbow World Mod by the way. I was bored one day, okay?

I have the absolute worst luck with Rare CBs. Well, one day I decided to visit the Caves. My visits used to be random. Finding in the Jungle a Dino Dragon--my very first one!--I took it. Then I clicked straight to Volcano, and what was there? A Paper Dragon! And I got both dragons! I was so psyched!
