Sorrow:

My grandfather passed away at 1am last night. He was one of the kindest, most loving and wittiest gentlemen I've ever had the pleasure of knowing and I am honoured that I am part of his family.

Joy: My mom and I saved an emaciated and mangy hound walking along the street.

Sorrow: We're not sure if they'll be able to treat her or if she'll have to be put down. :(

Joy: Either way would be better than if she had died of starvation, exposure, or by being run over by a car.

-----

@Hlaoroo - you have my condolences. :(

I'm sorry to hear that Hlaoroo. Hope you and your fam stay strong.

Sorrow: Failed both math tests I had today. But I studied and I'm pretty sure I got them right *shrug*
Terror: I am not on the cliff of pass or fail. If I don't get at least a D on the math final I will be seeing my school again next year.
Joy: I had this real big paper I had to write, 280 points or around that at least. I got a B on the paper and full grade for the process leading up to it. Paper itself was about 140 the process was the other 140.

Joy: Looks like finals are over.

Joy: Weather has been nice lately.
Funny: My friend who just got here from Oregon thinks that 50F degrees is cold.

This is why I now use Linux. Unless you mess around in the terminal using sudo commands, you can't mess it up. (Well, with Ubuntu anyway. I'm not sure about other distributions.) ((And I don't play games so not being able to play them isn't a big deal))

Unless it is your hard drive. I believe your computer isn't that old though, correct? I'm not sure the average life of a mechanical hard drive, but I'm sure it shouldn't be failing (on a mechanical level at least).

Does your university distinguish between minuses and pluses?

If so, I know how that feels.
I got an A minus in political science, but it's bringing my GPA down : |

Sorrow: That.

On the topic of school..

Joy: I got four out of five of my final grades and this was definitely my best semester. I now have more options for university applications. Looking at schools in Nebraska, Oklahoma, Ohio and New York.

Sorrow: The power cord for my drawing tablet broke (again). It will probably take a while for a replacement to be shipped due to the holidays -in the meantime, I can't work on my digital art. :(

EDIT: Found a spare! Should last me until a better one arrives.

EDIT: Spare broke. :x

Wow, that was very unlucky. I would be freaking out if a power cord broke and then I found sprained that broke. To put it in a better way, Bino would have nothing on my language.

Joy: So, today has basically been a great day. This morning, my band reformed and we are expecting to start recording our new album in the near future. Then in the afternoon, my boyfriend surprised me. He took me out to eat, we went to the movie theater, and he gave me a cd by one of my favorite bands. So happy right now :D

I'm glad to hear that your band got back together! And d'aawwww! How thoughtful of your boyfriend! Sounds like an excellent day!

Joy: Got to give someone a nice little care package for being sick as well as giving him half of his Christmas gifts (He needed it) and I get to give him his main gift Tuesday.
Joy: We also get to go to caroling at 'Greenfield Village' tomorrow. Hopefully he's feeling a lot better.
Sorrow: I have to finish the chapter that I'm working on my the 23rd. I'm on my 3rd cup of coffee. I'm working my hardest!
