Post subject:  Re: Joys And Sorrows

mixed feelings: getting a roommate finally. He's a guy I work with in the caf occasionally and he seems like a pretty nice guy. I feel like we might end up getting along really well but more importantly I don't see us hating each other. I'll miss living alone but at the same time I do sometimes wish I had someone to just shoot the breeze with sometimes. I kinda missed living with another person.
Sorrow:had to clean my room for the first time since halloween and move all my stuff so half the room was clear. That took me like 2 hours.
Sorrow:these next two weeks are going to kill me. 2 finals to study for, a final project, research paper, short writing asignment, my last stats quiz, and a paper for my film class. Oh and closing the dishroom twice a week. Someone kill me now.

Sorrow: Can't go into details and keep it pg so let's just say I'm going to be stressed and miserable for the next 6 months.
Sorrow:This turn of event is revealing alot of things about me I would prefer to avoid.
Sorro:Making the same mistakes I've seen my family make and I really don't like where my life is at right now. But I don't quite know how to fix it.

Sorrow:I'm more then likely going to have to blow 40 dollars or so, get a pellet gun and start shooting all of the treerats that are assaulting my feeders. I'm more annoyed at the cash spent then having to nail the rodents, because they wrecked two feeders already and started on a third before I moved it near my dog, who can only do so much.

Post subject:  Re: Joys And Sorrows

have you tried those squirrel proof ones that close off the source when a squirrel climbs on it?

Author:  Foxstar [ Tue Nov 20, 2012 5:36 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: Joys And Sorrows

They chewed though a older one, completely, wrecked it and gnawed a big hole in a newer one that I've moved. The really -good- ones are ungodly costly, like 50-100 dollars and I'm not going to invest that much into birdfeeders to avoid killing rats. I'm just going to have to shoot a few dozens of them and deal with it.

I remember when my dad got a feeder, rats ended up infesting our garden. I mean like, real rats too, not squirrels. That was a shocking nuisance. Who'd have thought those things could even climb bird feeders...

Kill the feeder smugglers to feed the birds. One kill means one another well fed bird.
What Would Macgyver do?
However, I would be pleased to shoot the pellet gun for you Mr.Foxstar

Hopefully "law and justice" refers to actual law and justice and not anything violent.

Joy: I am satisfied with Cornelius's story in Odin Sphere. I will miss this character, but at least he will be back at the end of it all I think.
Sorrow: The last boss of his story line was ridiculously unfair, and really destroyed the immersion of the game. He was hard enough as is, but he had so much backup in infinitely re-spawning minions.

Sorrow: My dog attacked a bunny in my back yard. I rushed out when I heard its frantic squeaks of pain. Most of its right rear leg was detached and it was bleeding pretty badly. I tried to make it comfortable but it didn't make it long. Rest in peace, little one. At least you got to feel what it's like being loved...

Sorrow: Finished with my Research Paper, and now I just need to cite my sources. Only problem is that I only used one source which covered a broad amount of what I talked about, and the rest in experience. I need 5 sources for this paper, and no matter how hard I look, the only articles that actually talk about what I discussed is Wikipedia and TvTropes, which I can obviously not use. Also, I don't think there is a book on this subject.

You really just made everything a lot harder on yourself. You can't use experience as a source in the paper for this class. Everything in a research paper needs to be backed up by documented fact. You also need two print sources, not one.

For the sake of this paper being the breaking point of your grade, I'll give you some pointers:
Wikipedia is a giant research paper in itself. Those citations (little superscript numbers) you are seeing? Go to the bottom of the page and you have a bibliography. Snoop around the bibliography and get some reliable sources you can actually use in the paper.

Also, you can use www.easybib.com for helping you format your citations.

And of course, our high school has actually published the blue MLA research books (that seniors use for Graduation Project) online for any student to use now. This is if you need to do your works cited manually. I'm not giving you the link here (it's not in the school's website though), but you know how to contact me.

Good luck.

sorrow: I have to pull an unintentional all nighter because I just locked myself out of my room. I'm on the couch in the suite's common room until my roommate wakes up and can let me in, and since I don't have any form of alarm with me or a guarantee that someone would actually wake me up, I can't sleep and have to stay awake until my roommate wakes up for his class, whenever that is.
Joy: he just woke up and opened the door. I can go to sleep only half an hour later than planned

Beagle, you started a trend of job getting-ness. I don't even know if that's a word, but it is to me now.
