you're overwhelmed, freeze was underwhelmed, how come nobody is  just... whelmed? 
- Robin, in Young Justice

hey guyssss!  summer is upon us.
just finished my final exams this morning!  it went... badly.
i didn't fall asleep in the middle (i worked from 11pm-7am and then took my exam at 730am blargh!) but i didn't have as much time to study as i would have liked.  so sad, i am most definitely going to have to take calcII again. T____T  as for Ochem, i didn't do well on that final either but i have slightly higher hopes for a passing grade.
despite the bleak future, this semester was NOT a total bust;  it has taken me 20 years of school but i finally figured out HOW TO STUDY.  yes, that is right, i learned the secrets of studying.  i was not studying properly before this year.  the secret is mostly time and sleep.  i need to spend about 2.5 hours rewriting class notes for every 1 hour of lecture.  you have to stay organized (keep everything from the beginning of the semester!!  yes, this also means my room currently has enough kindling for a small forest fire because i have 2x the amount of notes- one from class and one rewrite, plus whatever practice problems) .  and you have to be fully awake/aware of what you are writing both times.  this is the hard part because it usually means 2hrs of sleep between school and work is all you get.  :C
i have never been tempted to have energy drinks before (my vice is black coffee) but i don't understand how other people do it otherwise!  i may try it next semester.  or caffeine pills.  it is so hard to stay awake AND focus.  24hr days is ok, but i'm usually a zombie near the 18hr mark (strangely after you get over the inital NEEEEED SLEEEEEEEP stage, and closer to 24hr mark you are less sleepy.  it's like when george amberson tried to change the past and the past didn't want to be changed so it was stopping him with all kinds of obstacles... and then he moved beyond ka and suddenly everything trying to stop him moved away).
right now, i'm just whelmed.  i am done with school for the next few months and that's all i want to think about.  disheartened about grades?  yes.  but i think  i will do better next time.  done is done (can't be undone) and no point ruining the summer thinking about how you could have changed the past.

did i mention that i finished 11/22/63 !?  wow, what a book.  what an ending.  while it's not directly related to the dark tower, i understand about time travel and ka a lot better now.  things ended... sadly, but it couldn't have been any other way.  i won't give away more, you'll have to read it for yourself!!  you will be overwhelmed by the vividness and realism of the past!!  and it is very exciting to see the chain of events leading up to the ultimate moment!!!!!!!! and then it's done in a flash.  when it's finished you will say O DISCORDIA, WHAT HAVE WE DONE?! i love it when you get absorbed in a story. in paper, it's 800+ pages.  not as long as under the dome

this cover gets me everytime

but on an ipod?  it's the first novel i've finished on an ipod touch.  lengthy and fuilling.

ok, who watched cardistry death match finals?
anyone else underwhelmed by the videos?  :/

after the semi videos i was TEAM LADISLAS!


but after the finals:


i don't know what to think now...
i like the geonetry but i was hoping for more fans and flourishes?
tell me what you think in the comments!  or better yet, tell the artists what you think on theur respctive youtube pages.  :D   overall, great show from all the CDM11 flourishers, very creative and keep bringing the aster!

and finally...

young justice season 2 is ON!
/semi spoilers... but i didn't give away any plot/
five years after auld acquaintence things are right in the DC universe (on earth-16, anyway).  dick is nightwing. zatanna has her normal costume and joined JL.  beast boy is back, superboy is unattached (what happened?!), m'gann got a hair cut, wally west is gone (like in the dc comic world/new 52! T____T). speedy is still M.I.A. (stuck at cadmus w/lex? or with vandal savage?) first appearance of donna troy! (i *think* wonder girl is donna troy.  who can tell on earth-16?) tim is robin (and dick approves. awwww, happy bat family moment!) and steph (or barbara?) makes a cameo.

my favorite part?  adam stange!! he's fraking hillarious!!  BEWARE THE JABBAWOCK MY SONNNNNN!!!!!!!!!
i know he's invovled with the rann-thanagarian war so maybe the hawks will show up soon? :D

and, no i didn't watch avengers yet. ._____.

off to work now,
stay whelmed!
