Finals

AAHHHHHHHHHH. Thats is a sigh of relief knowing that the end of this horrible semester is near. I can not wait to finish that test and just be able to be calm, and stress free. It is going to be so nice. I have only two finals in the test form. One is cumulative and the other is just like a normal test. The only thing is that if i want to get a decent grade in these two classes i have to pull two really nice grades out of my ass. I'm not saying that I can't do it, i'm just saything that is not going to be easy at all. I have a paper to write for my english class. I am actually excited to write this one because I can be a little more free in my writing, kind of like this blog. Hopefully I will be able to end that class on a good note. Finally I have to turn in my last god dam question set for my archaeology class. NEVER TAKE ARCHAEOLOGY CLASSES, even if you think you like greece or rome, dont take it. I had to write an 8 page paper every other week, no matter what. So unless you like giving up every other week to write a paper i suggest not taking it. Good Luck to everyone else on there finals hope it goes good - Matt.J (Sweets)

Minnesota Wild Rock

WHAT A CRAZY GAME!!!!!!!!!!! Last night my girlfriend came up and we went to the Wild game. My parents were gracious enough to give us they're tickets for last night. To start off it was a pretty slow game not much happening. But in the second period people were hitting people left and right. There were break aways upon breakaways. It was completly ridiculous. To make a short story shorter, they went into a tiebreaker shootout. Each team got 3 shots on the other goalie. Both teams made one shot so it goes until one person makes it and the other misses. It went all the way down to the sixth shooter. That man was #96 Piere Mark Bouchard. He did the craziest move ever on a penalty shot. He came across the goalies net, stopped, did a 360 and shot it in the open net. IT WAS UNBELIEVABLE I just stood there in awe. The funny part about this is that the person that made this move famous was the Chicago Blackhawks Coach. (thats who we were playing) All in all it was one of the best games I have ever seen.

The Laundry Blues

When i came to college I was an idependent man, and I did my laundry all by myself for about 3 weeks. I don't think that I have done my own laundry for the past 2 months. I have either found my way back home, or I have had my girlfriend do it for me. I am not an independent man, I am a man run by women. It's alright though it gives me and excuse to go home and see my dog, and eat some of my moms delicious food. Don't get me wrong I have done it a few times, but i just don't like it. But i better get to doin it cause its getting cold outside and I am on my last pair of socks.

Blackbird

I just learned this awesome song on the acoustic guitar by a little band named the Beatles. It is a song that is on the White Album entitled Blackbird. It is a very awesome song, if you haven't heard it check it out, ASAP. I am not a huge fan of the Beatles, but....... I heard this kid playing the song at a party, and I was like I NEED TO LEARN THAT!!!!!!!!!!!! So when i got home on Sun. night I found the tab and practiced it until i could play it all the way through it perfect. After about 2 and a half hours I had it down pat. After that it was about 10 P.M. and I started to write my english paper. hahaha

21 Up

This is a movie that we are watching in my english class. It is a story about children from different walks of life from the age of 7. There is a new movie for every 7 years. at each stage they ask them questions about where they have came from and where they are going. We just watched the 21 up one. The two kids we looked at were both brought up in a foster home. You could tell that one of them was having a little more trouble assimalating into everyday life but they both had their ups and downs. These people are from England so it adds a whole other aspect to the situation. I am really interested in these movies, and cant wait to watch the next ones.

Poker

I used to play poker every week, if not more three times a week. I came to college and stopped playin that shit, what the hell? It is like my favorite past time, and part time job, and i just quit playin. I really want to find people to play with but i am not really friends with people on my floor so its tough. I play on the internet, but nothing beats the feeling of standing up after an all in waiting for the flop to come, and the river to decide your fate. I MISS POKER WITH MY BROS.

Cell Phone Problems II

I was just thinking that i should create a category just for all the times i have talked about my cell phone. Haha anyways. I had to send my phone into T-mobile once again because it will not charge. Now when i bought this 300 dollar phone the last thing i thought i was going to be worrying about was it charging. As a matter of fact i was actually excited to have a phone that could actually charge and work when i wanted it to. But little did i know that 3 months after buying this phone i would be on my 3rd one. Ya thats right I am on my 3rd cell phone in 3 months. Granted I get them all for free but it takes atleast 3 weeks for them to get my new one to me. Atleast this time i have a decent replacement for my old phone. One that actually has a color screen, and can text message.

Next Semester

I got to pick all of my next classes on mon. It was awesome. It was nice looking at the class list and actually knowing what i was looking at this time. I had an idea of what i wanted to take, where, and when i wanted to take them also. I took a little easier load and took a few fun classes in there as well so i have something to take my mind off all the grouling work. Really i can not wait for this semester to be over, so i can take these new classes and have a much better second semester than my first.

Thanksgiving Break

Thanksgiving break was the most amazing thing ever. I got to see all my friends, eat some good pasta, (not turkey), and my dog. I got to see my wonderful girlfriend everyday and it was AWESOME. I drank a lot .............of soda, and just had a good time. It was nice to not have to think about due dates, or papers, or anything like that it was awesome. I just relaxed and I loved every single second of it. I even went shopping the day after thanksgiving and that was pretty ridiculous. Why do we have to shove shit up a turkeys ass on this day?

Our New Paper

What is my philosophy on life? It is kinda hard to come up with a philosophy and put it on paper. It is even harder to make it sound like your philosophy is something worthwhile. Right now i am thinking about talking about music. To me music is a staple for life. Without it there is just sound. To me a world without music isn't much of a world at all. I think that is what i am going to try and get across to my audience for this paper. I will probably add a few things about how it has changed my life too.

Entries On Sunday

So every sunday night at about 11:30 i decide to write all 3 blogs for the week. Now some might say that this is procrastination, but I say otherwise. I can take my time on Sun. night and reflect on my whole entire week. These blogs give me a chance to go over my week and see what i have done and think about it. I think this makes my blogs better, and more personal. I don't think a blog should have to be a daily journal, why not a weekly journal?

Research Paper :(

I am not so excited to turn in my research paper on Wed. I don't know how your second draft went but i'm pretty sure i want to write my paper all over again. I feel like i didn't do anything right really. I hope that isn't the case. finding scholarly sources isn't all that easy either. I am starting to get the hang of it but it was really a pain in the ass to start out. After Wednesday I will be able to breathe a little easier...........until Friday cause I have another 7 page paper due. hhahah later

Huh? I can't hear you

TONIGHT WAS AWESOME. I went to a concert at this venue in maplewood called the Myth. I went to go and see my favorite band named Rise Against. They are awesome. I would say you could caterogize them as hardcore. I was by the speakers all night and i have been saying huh? what? all night. It was worth it. The opening bands wern't that great that, i was very dissapointed. All in all it was a really good night. I got to hang with my brother, and watch a show.

Presentations

I did a little presentation on Friday, and i don't think that it went very well. I had to talk about Modifiers. I didn't even know what the hell these were. When i read about them i figured out that they were a completley general topic that every already knew about. So it should of been easy to talk about right? Not. It was so complicated and not complicated at the same exact time. AAAAAhhhhh i'm done, sorry for the horrible presentation everyone.

Real Camping

This weekend i ventured about 2 and a half hours away from the U. I went to the mall town of Mora. My whole family on my dads side hunts. We own over 150 acres up there and we go camping every year. i am a vegetarian so i just drink and eat. they all get up at 5 in the morning and go shoot bambi. it is one of the funnest things i do all year. there is no running water and no electricey, and i love every bit of it
