I remembered what I was going to say before I wrote the last post.
I found an article called “Seven Tips From Ernest Hemingway on how to Write Fiction.” It’s an interesting read, and I wanted to share it with everyone, in case you missed it on the web.
I may start to take this advice, once I can come up for air this semester. If that ever happens, y’all will be the first to know.
Fresh off of a 4.0 semester, I thought I had this whole thing covered. Little did I know that the 45 day break between semesters would cause such horrible atrophy in my scholastic mind, that it would take nearly a month to get back into the swing of things.
I knew it would happen, which is why I planned on doing Java over the break, why I was hoping to have completed two or three major house projects, and not to have spent the majority of my free time lounging around, watching television and getting back into the terrible habit of playing Minecraft at every opportunity. None of my major projects were completed, I did very little programming, and I did, in fact, spend quite a bit of time watching television and playing Minecraft. “Laziness is a secret ingredient that goes into failure. But it’s only kept a secret from the person who fails.” –Robert Half.
How right he is. I had no idea, and I’m scrambling to get back into the game. I think I’ve got it for Trigonometry. Mythology is a cake walk (thank god), and while Java is a lot of work, it’s not new learning for me, so it’s easy. As always, the English class is the beast. Lots of research and writing, and now there’s also analysis. I like this last part the best, but it’s new and all new things take time to master.
I came over here to write about something, and ended up writing this instead. Obviously this was more important and needed to get out, because I have no idea what the other thing even is anymore.
