That's totally understandable. No need to apologise.
That's good you did really well in those two. It feels really good when you can apply yourself wholly to the work and see the benefits in good grades. I did the same in the first half of last semester and was top of my class at the time. I hope you're able to keep it up.
Ah that makes sense if you were driving a lot of the time. I'd do the same.
That does sound like an interesting concept. I'm similar to you there, and it takes a lot for me to get into books that have a slower build up to begin with. I usually get there in the end, but I don't think I'd be able to right now. I hope it picks up and sucks you in better though. What is is called, out of curiosity?
I think it's a bit of both, really, and it just seems like they make each other worse. Nothing really holds my attention at the moment.
This move has been exhausting, sorry for the slow reply.
I still need to do most of it, I have only 2 classes cleared so far. Luckily I got really good grades in them because I was actually able and willing to apply myself to the work.
I plan to at some point, I was gonna read on the trip to Iowa while it wasn't my turn to drive. Alas I spent a majority of my time at the wheel of one of our cars and when I wasn't I needed a nap.
I picked up another book to read and only read the first chapter. It's supposed to be really good but I can't get past the slow build of the current state of the world and introducing the characters. It's supposed to be a representation of the Vietnam War in a high fantasy setting, so it sounds really cool just struggling to get going with it.
Why drifting away? Just not motivated or interested?
Apparently I'm the slowest replier ever. Sorry about that.
I'll have my fingers crossed for that too for you. How much more do you have left to do for your degree? At least once you get that you should be set.
Ah that's a shame in that case. Have you gone back to/considered going back to them since? These are the books I've read so far this year, and they were all pretty enjoyable. I'm currently (though I'm not sure if I can say that after not picking it up for two months) reading The Universe Versus Alex Woods. I've just done a pretty fair job of drifting away from everything recently.
Hopefully I will finally finish getting a degree and can start a career so that I don't have to leave everytime they do because I just don't enough money working the jobs that I do. I am hoping to make my next location my last for a while. Fingers crossed I never have to make a 1000+ mile move ever again after this next one.
It was the first 2 Drizzt Do' urden books, Homeland and Exile. I have the next 2 books in the series, I just haven't been eager to continue as the second books ending left a bad taste in my mouth with some Deus Machina in the last fight.
I can certainly imagine it never gets any easier. Just knowing you have to get everything from one place to another over that distance would be enough to put me off the task. I hope this new place allows you to better settle down though, so you're not doing the same thing again anytime soon.
Same here. I've probably only got Medieval II: Total War, Everybody's Golf and Football Manager 2007 that have got any chance of having gotten to the 500 hour mark. I tend to drift away from games far too easily, especially recently.
Oh that's good. What books were they? I'm on my 8th book so far this year, which is the most I've had in a long time. There are a lot of others I want to read as well, and that number only seems to increase each time I go to GoodReads.
Hehe, thanks. I hope I did. I'm not sure when we get our results, but I'm anxiously looking forward to seeing how I did.
I have done several 1000+ mile moves over the years, never gets easier in fact it gets harder.
Yeah not many games make it past the 100 hour mark with me and only 4 or so games have made it past the 500 hour mark. Runescape, Halo 3, Gears 2, and now Neverwinter. Might be 1 or 2 others, can't remember :P
I have been reading more this year too. Finished 2 books, which is amazing for me.
You did well Hatters, make no mistake about it. You rocked those exams!
It has been, buddy. Oh hopefully it will be. I can't even imagine moving that far! The most I've ever gone is to uni and that was only about 110 miles.
That's pretty awesome. It's really great when you can find a game that allows you to sink that much time into it. I haven't really played any MMOs besides Runescape though lol. I've found myself in a gaming rut for most of this year so far, but I'm hoping to get out of it over the summer. I've been reading a lot more this year than I have for quite some time though, and have read a few really enjoyable books. Other than that, I'm waiting for my exam results from uni. I got top of my class in one of my midterms, so hopefully I did well in the finals too.
Hatters! Its been a couple months buddy. Doing alright, getting ready to move again. Hopefully this will be my last major move for a very long time as I am sick of moving over 1,000 miles each time we move.
Have been pretty heavily addicted to Neverwinter on the X1 ever since that came out. Clocked over 500 hours since March 1st.
