One to go...

One and only one test to go....
Should be happy
...
Why aren't I?
Physics.
There is so much I didn't pay attention to in this course. I love physics, the knowing of how we determine how things work, and all the restrictions of the world, or your materials.
However the teacher that teaches it on CDLI that I have this year, is monotoned. There is never any expression in his voice. Therefore everything he says is boring and very hard to pay attention to. This isn't just my opinion, the 2204 students this year from this school have the same teacher and same opinion.
So for a while I was learning everything from the book on my own (really good book too!) But that didn't last long, I got lost in other things. So for the next 4-5 hrs I'll be practicing formulae and stuff, hoping to get enough to pass the test. (public exam course, pass the test, pass the course.)

English... BAH! dahmeryo!

Well im here working away at my english portfolio, due in 9.5 hrs, and i had to write a few poems. I figured this one was pretty good, and quite suited to the blog, seeing as how its the blog of a 'net addict :P
You might see better versions in the future, cause i kind of like it. ;)

The Internet


Inevitably growing to no end

The internet connects people

It connects computers

robots, fridges and toasters


A time is coming

In which nothing will be apart

All will be connected

Into a vast network of everything


Today, it is a game

It is a telephone

It is an assistant

a videophone, a mailbox and a library


It shall become so much more

But it is already more

The internet grows,

and stops for no one.


Many get left behind

Many get lost

The only true rulers of this world

Are the ones that know when to unplug.

Finally an explanation

Well a lot of people (even my parents, linux users) often ask me why i use linux, untill now i didnt really have an answer for them right off the bat, i had to come up with complicated ones....
Well it struck me when signing into msn here on my CDLI computer... an answer to that question:

I want things to "just work", or at least have my efforts to make them work actually produce a result. And i want things to not break themselves. Windows has given me countless hours of trouble in the last while, driving me insane, because much of the strife came from some windows updates or something similar which i HAD NO CHOICE but to do when i reinstall. And in windows when you try to fix these problems, they go so deep and oddly into the system, they cant be fixed.
Now for linux..... Shit takes time to get working in the first place, but it stays working unless YOU screw it up. Thats it, end of story.

Now if i could only randomly come up with an answer to the statement "linux sounds great, i want to try it" when it comes from someone who wants things to be as simple as possible.

W00t?

Ok, I've been "in danger" of failing my French, and thanks to a unnamed principals method of sorting out classes, I need that class to graduate. Now for anyone reading this, you probably think I'm an idiot. But I am not. I just don't give a shit about French, so I didn't do any of the assignments... Well I did a few but still, not many at all.

Today it was confirmed for me by the counselor here by calling someone at the school board, if I pass the final exam, because its a "public exam" course, I pass the course. So no worries at all, but I will study a bit, I intend on concentrating more on my English public exam, which is on the same day, because I only need to pass French, I need a 60+ in English to get into the course I am enrolled in.

And its the last 2 days of classes! YEA! Damn it feels good, but its not over yet. 2 days and 4 publics, one final, then its all done. It seems like highschool went so fast... I hope college is the same, because at night when I listen to music (and I always listen to music) I cant get my mind off the move to Japan.... So if college flies by, it will be all the better :D

Unhappy.

Well mom's lightly allergic to the cats. She had the blood work done today, and they have to go.

I spent a while thinking on it, very upset that smokey had to go, and thinking about how he would do... He's a very skiddish cat, and I'm worried for him.

I thought about other solutions, like having someone else look after the cats until I move into an apartment that allows them when I move to start college. But I had to look further than that before I realized, this had to happen.
Remember Japan? Yea, I'm moving there in about 3-3.5 years. I had thought about taking smokey with me a few weeks ago when I zoned off one class. There was no way I was going to put my poor skiddish cat through the torture of flying to the other side of the planet, in a tiny kennel, while being handled no better than any other luggage. It would be too much on my conscience to know that my cat was below my feet, scared as hell, cooped up with no breathing room in a kennel. No fucking way.
After remembering that train of thought, I realized, if I don't part with him now, because mom cant keep him, I would have to part with him when I left for Tokyo anyway! And it would be worse then. I have only been attached to this cat for 8 months right now. Sure, I raised him from a kitten, I still wish he was tiny enough to sleep in the palm of my hand like he could when we first got him, but if I were attached to him for 4 years, and then had to part with him, I wouldn't be able to do it. I would call off moving just because of my cat.

And so, I don't know when exactly they will be going to the SPCA, but I'll be trying to make it be after exams. Just to have a little longer with my cat, a little longer for me to convince myself he'll be ok. I will be trying to set up a system with the SPCA though so that I get informed when he gets adopted again, not who adopted him, or anything specific. Just when it happens, I want to know. Or, if he doesn't get adopted, I want to know if/when they have him listed as to be put down if not adopted in X days, at that point I'll be going nuts to make sure he gets adopted. Wasting every resource I can just to keep that cat alive, and get him into a family that will at least provide him a life he can be happy (for a cat) in, I don't care if he's pampered to no end, just that he's happy for a cat, that is if he has the food he needs, a place to crap, and a warm bed he can waste his life away in, as any cat does, and attention when he wants it. That's all. If I know he wasn't put down, I'll be fine. But if I hear absolutely nothing I'll go off my head.

Bandit I still care about too, I'm just not attached to him the same. I don't want him put down either, however I am not so desperate to find a home. I think its because he's a lot cuter than smokey, being a long haird cat that's very sociable, so I think he'll be adopted just fine. Smokey probably will be too, I just cant stand the notion of the possibility.

Well, all will be well in the end, I just don't know what I'm going to do for the next 3 years. I have always been a cat lover, and I will be getting a cat as soon as I can in Tokyo, but I cant get a cat for the next 3 years, or keep one I have, its too much to loose them. I've lost too many cats in my life, I cant be separated from one by choice. Well, we'll see what happens, I have this blog don't I? I'll find something to put my attention into.
