Jumping June Jehoshaphats! It's summer!



Summer has started, much to my dismay. I don't know, I'm more of a winter person. As most people are on their summer vacations, I refuse to take any sort of vacation and remain on a full-time schedule, though it is a bunch of easier classes. I'd rather not get heat exhaustion AND school exhaustion, though. Ugh.

A couple of days ago I finally gave in and started Final Fantasy VIII from scratch. It's my second time playing through it since the first time I played it was 10 years ago and I didn't know what the hell I was doing and spammed GFs and leveled everyone to 100. Bad idea. This time, I am a little older (ha!) and know what I'm doing this time. I'm actually enjoying it! I thought it was a terrible FF the first time I played it, but now it's not that bad, or maybe it's not that bad because XIII (just finished it last weekend) was just plain crappy and anything is better by comparison? Meh.


Really, at this rate, I'm hoping to be done with VIII sometime next week. I want to get back to Chrono Cross and finish that. Then move onto Vagrant Story if there's time. All while waiting for FFXIV to improve and deliver us with the update I've been yammering about in previous posts.


Some other stuff I've been working on...



Codename: EPIC:


This may be one of the last posts that will have the codename. Next blog post, there is a chance I will have an actual title for this project, and some permanent character names! Airen (storyline/plot-co leader) and I are going to be meeting Friday night to discuss details, and I'm looking forward to it!

BETA Cinema:

There are THREE new movies coming.

The first is one that Ryan is editing, that is likely to come out first. The trailer doesn't explain the skit too well, but I assure you it will be our best edited one to date.





The second one is The Math Skit. We had some issues with getting it up due to missing footage, and we plan on posting that sometime soon. I'm going to be editing that.





It's says April 1st, but the date is likely to be July 1st. XD


The third movie we plan on filming at tomorrow's meeting which will appropriately titled "Jumping June Jehoshaphats". (Sound familiar?) Alyssa is going to be making her BETACinema editing debut. I actually plan on cutting back my role as main editor and writer because of my existing commitments to two other projects that are taking my time. Here's hoping things actually go well and all of the groups do not suffer due to this. We'll see.



Degree Progress:


As far as university is concerned, I ended up passing General Physics II. I don't know HOW, but I did. Apparently the system is very inconsistent. I take Data Structures in Winter 2010 and got a C-, and I was forced to re-take. Yet, I took Physics II and got a C- and I don't have to re-take. Weird. Given that I passed all of my courses, this is how far through I am to getting my two degrees.


X - Denotes that the class is finished.
O - Denotes that the class will be taken in Fall 2011.

Computer Science B.S. (Main Degree)


Almost done! Needs about a year and a half more and I can move onto the next chapter of my life. Finding a career in what I love more than anything. >:)





Ending Note:


Anyhow, I'll end this post with a song that's been on my mind!





Lyrics:

I never seen you looking so bad my funky one
You tell me that your superfine mind has come undone

Any major dude with half a heart surely will tell you my friend
Any minor world that breaks apart falls together again
When the demon is at your door
In the morning it won't be there no more
Any major dude will tell you

Have you ever seen a squawk's tears? Well, look at mine
The people on the street have all seen better times

Any major dude with half a heart surely will tell you my friend
Any minor world that breaks apart falls together again
When the demon is at your door
In the morning it won't be there no more
Any major dude will tell you

I can tell you all I know, the where to go, the what to do
You can try to run but you can't hide from what's inside of you

Any major dude with half a heart surely will tell you my friend
Any minor world that breaks apart falls together again
When the demon is at your door
In the morning it won't be there no more
Any major dude will tell you
