Personal Post: The College Girl Blues

I haven’t posted a review in 1.5 weeks. I have failed you all, my beautiful followers who probably aren’t even reading this post. But worst of all–I have failed myself.

Ok, maybe it’s not that bad, but I’m busier than ever.

I received Six of Crows on the day of its release, and I still haven’t typed up anything close to a completed critique. (Just so you know: I rated it 3.5 stars). I’ve also neglected all of my advanced reading copies…literally, I had swarms of stuff to read, and I threw ’em all out the window of my brain.

Perhaps you’re wondering why I’m writing this. Well, CERTAINLY not to post a new review! PAH!

Actually, I’m attempting to blow off some steam.

I’ve had boatloads of schoolwork to do, and on top of that, I have one-and-a-half jobs that consume many of my free hours. (Don’t ask). ON TOP OF THAT, the one and only coping mechanism that seems to work is listening to Harry Potter audiobooks nonstop while studying/doing homework/being productive at all.

I can only study computer hardware/human history/computer science if I hear about Uncle Vernon’s purple face of anger or Harry’s insistence that HE DIDN’T PUT HIS NAME INTO THE GOBLET OF FIRE GODDAMNIT. GHDHFBHSBHDFBSJ!!!!

Sorry, Harry.

Harry Potter is the only reason I’m not having nervous spasms and running all over the place screaming about for loops, data structures and circuit boards.

I’ve gone from this:


I’ve spent 12 collective hours on a Java programming assignment that is kicking my ass, Of course I’m having trouble! I’m still learning! I DIDN’T COME OUT OF THE WOMB ALL FABULOUS I APOLOGIZE OH WAIT NO I DON’T

And I don’t even want to talk about work.

And I don’t even want to talk about my brother. (If you’re reading this, GRRRRR at you)

Let’s not forget my broken relationships!

All I want to do is listen to Harry Potter so that I can take notes until my fingers bleed.

I’ll be back tomorrow (Friday) with a Flashback Friday review of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Saturday or Sunday will kickoff the Six of Crows feature review. Of course, I’m probably the only one who cares, but this blog matters to me. It’s my space. Gotta problem? Get Your Own Space. *waves arms around frantically to make myself look even more insane*

import java.util.Scanner;
public class UghWhatsMyLife {
	public static void main(String[] args) {

int yesOrNo;

Scanner scan = new Scanner(;	
System.out.println("Want to listen to more ranting?"); 
yesOrNo = scan.nextInt();

System.out.print("You said " + yesOrNo + ". No matter what you said, I'm going to rant anyway.");

    Everyone goes through this in college, I promise! I defintiely called my mom crying about a programming assignment at least once >.> I’m not very good with Java, but I might be able to help with the basic concepts…. When you tackle C++ I’m there 😀

      Ugh Java has a way of making me feel pretty stupid! A few weeks ago I just started sobbing uncontrollably after hours of not understanding! And thanks. I think we might be learning C++ next semester, but I’m not sure. I’m trying to spend at least two hours per day studying Java basics, but sometimes it’s hard to wrap my head around some of these assignments.
