In the past two weeks, I've watched more anime than I have all year, surprisingly enough. Summer Wars, AKIRA, Gurren Lagann, Neon Genesis Evangelion, to name some. Three of those I had never seen. And they were all great.
Anyway...on to the main journal points.
I was afraid that I wasn’t going to pull through in some of my classes after I saw my midterm grades. I’ve never had much of a problem in college, but this semester was easily the worst I’ve had in terms of grades, due mainly to the teaching methods and pickiness of a few professors. Another problem was that at least two of my professors put things on exams that we never covered in class, or were never given an assignment for outside of class.
Whatever the case, I suppose staying up studying until 4 AM every morning during finals week was a worthwhile plan, because I passed all of my classes, and I get to keep moving forward to new things.
What other business is there to talk about…?
I’ve been trying to write and draw more since the winter break started. I have something in mind of which I have the “on paper” phase mostly finished. If it works out, it will probably end up being bigger than most of the artwork I’ve posted here. My gallery here frequently gathers dust, but I really want to change that.
I’ve also started writing things for the media project that my group of friends is getting off the ground. Right now, it’s only reviews, but I have other things in mind, as well. Right now, there are only two reviews present, but if you feel like dropping by to read them, you can find them at my new Tumblr page: justine-of-geekbait.tumblr.com…
The goal is for the reviews to be both informative and amusing. Eh, who knows how that works out? Senses of humor vary.
Chances are a lot of you have heard of Rocksmith, the game that is supposed to teach you how to play guitar (or bass, if you want). I wanted to see just how effective it was; needless to say, the concept is intriguing. So, I picked it up, and was pleasantly surprised. This game is better at teaching you to play guitar than I could ever hope to be at teaching myself to play guitar. It’s also surprisingly fun. If you’re like me, only somewhat competent with the six stringed instrument, the Easy setting will still seem like Expert on Rock Band. But it won’t be long before you’ve learned a few things. Rocksmith is actually a good teacher.
And that brings me to the end of this journal. That’s about all there is to report. Things are all good.
