Nemo & New Year's

Happy Lunar New Year, everyone! 

In the last entry I mentioned that there was going to be a big snowstorm on Friday and it was disastrous in some ways but rewarding because I got to spend time with friends as well.

So I went to visit my friend's school on Thursday night (school was canceled on Friday) and we just played Poker with a bunch of people.
To end the game, the three of us remaining decided to go all in.. and we won with two pairs!! ..Until our friend pointed out five minutes later that someone else had a flush.

We ended up staying up until 5:00AM just chatting randomly and listening to music. 

The next morning, we had to do laundry before heading home for CNY. The trains were scheduled to stop running at 3:30PM, so we had some time. We finished laundry stuff around 2 and lazed around for a bit. At 2:30PM, we decided to head out, but my friend's wallet was missing so we spent like 10 minutes looking for it. As we were crossing to street to the station, we saw a train leave.. and then found out the last train was at 3:00PM, and we got there at like 3:02PM -__- So we spent the next half an hour wondering what to do, whether to call a cab or not because there was a traveling ban at 4:00PM (so no cars were allowed on the road) so a cab probably wouldn't have gotten us home on time. Meanwhile, my mom was so angry at me for not being able to get home.

So we ended up going back to another friend's dorm to take shelter. At this point, the snow wasn't too was snowing a lot and snow was starting to build up.
I took this photo at then the snow had piled up a lot.
Trekking along the snow

When we decided that it was finally time to return to my friend's dorm, it was already 2:00AM..and it's normally a 10-15 minute walk. The snow was just so deep.. at some point we took a road that nobody else had even taken and the snow was knee high x__x We got back half an hour later, cold and wet. Relaxed in the lounge until 6:00AM watching shows like Arrested Development and Phineas and Ferb..and random YouTube stuff. 

The next afternoon.. we went outside to play for a bit :D!! People made a bunch of igloos outside.

My boots are ruined from the past two days T__T;; At least it kept me warm.. I seriously need waterproof boots.

Lastly.. we had our ghetto New Year's Eve dinner. Chinese takeout, which took an hour to deliver D:

Then my friend and I got picked up and went home for New Year's the next day ^^ I basically just slept in the whole day.. I have school tomorrow :\

So Far into the Semester

Well here's an update of school/my life. It's a really long post, so I dunno if anyone's actually going to read through it lmao.

My sleep schedule is messed up as usual lol. I've been sleeping so late again, so it's hard to focus in class..especially since they're usually all back to back, so I get no break in between. Yesterday I had a writing assessment for my management course, and it was at 8:15AM when normally class is at 9:30AM..and I couldn't even focus at all because it was so tired lmao. I don't think I even did that well because my ideas didn't really fit what the assignment was asking and I rushed to cut down my writing to one page, so I had to take out a lot/didn't have time to go over it to add more important points.

My classes this schedule have me a bit worried about my grades T__T;; They're sorta more challenging.
Management: It's getting more specific and the lecture slides aren't really helping because I can barely answer any questions when I get quizzes. 
Statistics: It's so confusing T__T I've never taken stats before and I feel so lost when I'm doing the assignment. I understand it after we go over it.. but I feel like I should at least know how to do it and just make a small mistake or something, but nooo it's just all so confusing. I got a 4/4 on my first quiz though, but they're all pop quizzes, so they're all going to catch me off guard.
Calculus: I can't really tell if this class is going to be easy or not lmao. The material seems relatively easy, but the homework is sorta hard and my professor goes through the lectures really quickly, so sometimes it's hard to follow. I had my first test last week, and I think I aced it, but I'm not sure yet. I'll be getting it back on Monday. Usually the first test is always easiest too though lol.
Accounting: Ehh. I can't tell if this will be challenging or not. I had an exam this week and I thought I did really well, but I can never be too sure about this one. Some people were discussing it and were saying they got something different than what I kinda made me lose my confidence lmao. It's a bit confusing though. 
Education elective: Errm. I have to do a case study on someone for this course.. soo I dunno how that'll go lmao. I hope I do well though.

I've submitted my application for my school's Honor's Program last week :) Aside from other application processes, my GPA is definitely a huge one that can easily disqualify me. There's a minimum GPA requirement, so if I do poorly this semester then there goes all my chances/efforts. 

Other updates:
The Northeast is supposed to get this HUGE snowstorm on Friday. They're estimating up to two feet o_o One source even said 33.5" wtf! Sooo I'll see how it goes. I'm supposed to attend this event though, but if there's going to be a huge snowstorm, I dunno if it's going to be a very smart idea.

Chinese New Year's is coming up this Sunday, so I'll be heading home for the weekend. Lately I think I've been bonding well with my family ;o Somewhat. I need to work on my dad though because our relationship isn't really that good (on my part.) I've been talking to my mom a lot more..and lately been trying to reach out to my brother, but I think he hates me lol. I need to come up with some ideas for New Year's nails.. my nails haven't been doing so well lately.. for the past three weeks it's been breaking a lot. 

Oh yeah I went shopping earlier this week, so hopefully I can do a post on that. I didn't really buy much, but it feels like it's been a while since I've gone shopping.. since Black Friday. I don't even have anywhere nice to take photos though :T

I have work super early in the morning, so I should sleep.. or catch up on my reading..gah the decisions. I feel like I have more to write but I don't want this to be a longer post than it already is xD

Anyways, until next time!

The Break Up.

Two weeks ago the (now-ex)-boyfriend and I broke up. In the beginning, I was kinda sad, but now it just feels like something of the past already because life moves on..and so does mine. 

We've been through a lot together and made a lot of memories: gone to new places, tried new things, spent a lot of time together, etc. I can only speak for myself when I say this, but they will always be things that I will miss and I will treasure the memories. I don't mean just closing a chapter of my life and leaving it behind; I'll still reread it from time to time instead of vaguely remembering that such a thing ever existed. They weren't all good memories though, so it's a bittersweet thing. Of course, that doesn't mean I'll wallow in the past; I'll look at what's in front of me. :)

At this point, I don't really think we'll cross paths again. I mean, only time can tell though. I do think it's a shame that all the time we spent means nothing but memories, because now we're just strangers, who care nothing for each other, already treats the other like s/he doesn't exist, and throwing everything away, as if this relationship is something we want to erase from our lives as if it never happened. We walked into each others' lives, became "everything" to each other, and then walked away like we were never there. Then again, I guess that's pretty normal...since a lot of couples aren't even friends after breaking up.. and there's close friends who drifted off. But whateverrr, it's a shame, but that's life.

My friends have stuck with me through all this, and I'm incredibly lucky to have them :D <3 They've listened to me complain and rant, kept me company, and are really understanding, soooo I'm really glad to have them :) They know who they are. 

But rest assured, I'm not putting on a strong front because I really do think I'm okay and I'm satisfied with the direction my life is going right now :D

I'll keep everyone updated, so until next time! :)
