New TenTen and Shino icons, yay!

Also finally caved and made a Twitter account. Baa.

Today: Must finish Psych reading/post/quiz, as I'm (finally) going to Renfest with [livejournal.com profile] opheliarowan tomorrow.

I got a 92/100 on my first Humanities test! *dances* It covered three chapters' worth of info, and there are only 4 tests total, so it's already a fairly big part of my grade. :D

Just did my weekly posting for Psychology, studying up so I can do the quiz for this chapter. Sensation and Perception, joy. At least I got a 96/100 on the last quiz to make up for the crappy 72/100 I got on the physiology chapter. *wince*

Depending on when I finish on the chapter and get the quiz done, I might go stay the night at my sister's house; she's been bugging me all week to go play the Wii with her, lol. Gotta get homework crap out of the way first.

In related news, this song is my epically awesome study music. The video is just awesome, I love the concept. <3

This should be fun... I finally decided on my presentation topic for Humanties: The evolution and/or cultural implications of tattoos. I've managed to find some interesting sources so far, so it should be a fun project. :3

ETA: Someone needs to make and sell coffee-pistachio flavored ice cream.

I got a 96% on my first psychology test! *preens*

(The class average so far is 89.14 %, but I don't know how many people factor into that number; the cutoff for the test isn't until the 18th.)

In other news, my shingles has mostly cleared up-- thank god. The meds have my sleep schedule so out of whack it isn't funny. :/ I literally didn't wake up until around 3 in the afternoon, and can't get to sleep earlier than 3-4 AM, no matter what I do.

ETA: Awesome! My Comparative Mythology prof from like two years ago still remembers me! :D

I might just have a good turn of luck!

Because of my shingles, I can't really go anywhere until I'm no longer contagious (2-3 weeks, on average). I'd already registered for spring classes, Psychology and Humanities. Luckily, Humanities was online. I talked to my Psy prof, and he said that he could float me for the time I'd be out sick, and I could make it up by attending both monday and wednesday night classes for two weeks, since I was registered for wednesday, and monday class would be behind because of MLK day.

The big problem though, was that said psy prof isn't exactly comp literate, and had some trouble emailing me the syllabus and course info stuff.

Well, for kicks, I went and checked to see what online classes were available for Psy. Lo and behold, there was suddenly an open seat in a class taught by Professor Pimpinelli, who seems to be one of the best profs at PCC, hands down. Score!

I called over to the college, explained how I'm not able to go in myself, and the nice lady hooked me up with the class. Now I just have to wait for them to update the online thing, and I'm good to go~

Still waiting for my textbook to get here, but hopefully it won't take much longer.

Okay, I have to write a research paper for English class, and my topic focuses on the Pros and Cons of Violence in the Media. I have to use at least 5 sources, and I'm allowed to do interviews, etc.

What I'd like from you guys is your opinion/thoughts on the topic. Are violent video games detrimental to society, or cathartic? Are copy-cat murderers truly inspired by a movie/comic/game/etc., or is there some other underlying trigger? Do we, as a society, prefer to place blame on the fictional violence we see in day to day life, instead of owning up to our own malicious tendancies?

Either side is fine, as I have to present both equally in the paper.

ivyadrena: (Fallen - typing on fire)

[livejournal.com profile] drowning_misery confirmed it, I'm officially pathetic. I somehow managed to forget that this week is Spring Break, and therefore class isn't being held tonight. *facepalm*

ivyadrena: (Naruto - Kisame coldeyes)
Oi... I'm all signed up for my next college course. Not the one I actually wanted, but... grr.

The bastards at PCC have an extremely stupid Math prerecquisite which says you need to have at score of at least 73 to get into any of the Physical Science courses (which, may I add, are required to obtain the AA degree that I'm aiming for?). The problem?
a) I hate math, and suck quite badly at it.
b) There were questions on there I'd never even heard of before. What class teaches you about Puccette squares?
c) If you fail, you have to wait 30 days before you can take it again.
d) There are only twelve questions in the math section of the test!

That pretty much means I'm only allowed to miss four-ish questions and still be able to pass, and it doesn't help that they won't tell me wtf parts I got wrong. *shakes fist*

At this rate, I'm gonna have to take one or two of the required math courses before I'll be able to pass the stupid prerec for the Physical Science courses. Fucker.

...oh yeah, I'm taking Intro Sociology. Almost forgot to say.

Also, there should be a rule against the required textbooks costing more than half of what the course itself did.
Course = $200
Books = $120

...kay, so someone from California called me when I was in class earlier, but I didn't quite recognize the number. Was it you, [livejournal.com profile] messypeaches? Oo;

haha... I am so gonna die.

I thought I had until next month to write my term paper, but Ms. Gardell
mentioned "the 30th" as the due date... the only 30th that falls on a Monday
is this month. And I can't find my syllabus for the paramaters for the paper
and creative side to the project. *facepalm*

I emailed her on Sunday asking for a new copy, but she doesn't usually check
on weekends, and I haven't heard anything back from her yet. And genius me,
I managed to forget to ask her for a new copy when I saw her in class last

So, I could use a little help-- as I said in a previous post, my topic is on
Oracles, and their roles in classic mythology/history and how their modern
day counterparts are percieved.

What I need is an object that I could make that would be a good
representation of that topic. Like, I can't just go out and buy a tarot
deck, but I could create my own. Which is what I origionally planned doing,
but now I don't think I'll have enough time to do the full Major Arcanum. ><
My other thought was to make my own set of runes-- it would concieveably
take me less time to carve runes into stone than it would to draw over 16
Grand Arcanum cards, which is probably some level of pathetic. (Hey, we have
a dremmil tool!) The only problem with that is, where am I going to find
around 24 evenly-sized stone/bone/wood slices? I'll have to google for make-your-own rune
kits or something... I'm thinking of doing the Elder Futhark runes, btw.

Any other suggestions, pretty please? I'm in a bit of a panic here.

"I hope in as few ways as possible."

Got another test assignment today. I have to write a Hero myth.
And, since Ms. Gardell loved this one part of my Creation myth so much...

“Alright then, a story... which shall I tell you? The tale of the courageous dragon that saved a fair maiden from an evil king?"

*grin* Likey?
ivyadrena: (unique)
Why the hell are all of Vanessa Mae's videos so cracktastic? I feel like I'm watching something from David Hasselhoff!

I want a fedora.

I'm in love with Yami no Matsuei. <3 Tsuzuki/Hisoka!~

Has anyone heard of the Chaldean Oracles?
ivyadrena: (FMA - Mustang squeeeee)


Dude! My prof read my creation myth today, and asked me to sign it so she could prove she knew me when Icarus Down gets novelized and goes famous! *happy dancey* ^_____________^

ivyadrena: (Thunderbird)
Okay, so! I emailed my Comparative Mythology prof, and she approved my term paper/project topic. *dancey*

I'm going to compare Oracles/Seers/Fortune Tellers from classic mythology to their modern-day counterparts-- their roles in society, how they're percieved by the common people, their "powers" and where they got them, and so on.

Here's where ya'll come in, if you've a mind to assist. I need a list of all the Oracles/Seers/Fortune Tellers that you can think of; location doesn't matter. Also, if you'd like to suggest any specific books or areas I should place special focus on, I'd be much appreciative. <3

Off the top of my head:
Oracle of Delphi
Madame Cleo
Native American Shaman/jessakkid
Professor Sybil Trelawney (Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] kc_anathema~)
Morgan Le Fay (Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] kuroihime~)

Think I should include Apollo and other gods of prophecy?

...yyyyeah, I can usually do WAY better than that, but I'm tired.
ivyadrena: (Fallen - pink laundry)

So. I'm home! Have been for like.. 30 minutes.

Class started at 5:30 tonight, was supposed to last until 8:30. The teacher let us out at 6:34!!

wtf, woman? I didn't pay $200 so you could ask people their favorite myths, then give us like, 20 pages and 10 questions to read/answer, and let us out two hours early! *headdesk*
