End of Term!

It's a bit hard to believe but the end of the Fall semester is finally coming to an end as of tomorrow. Are you excited? I'm excited. Remember when I said I could be a massive waste of space? Well what better way to accomplish that then during the Christmas break.

Video games forever!

But we still have a few obstacles to overcome before that can happen. First, we have research related things. I've got two papers to finish up. One is simply a review of everything that I've done this term. Nothing too difficult. It's half typed up, just needs some cleaning and I think I'll be good.

The other paper is much more important. My prof believes that we have enough data and believable results so we can publish. My name will be on that paper and that would go a long ways in impressing people in the future I think. Not something a lot of undergrads can say they have.

And now she won't be the only one!

I also need to finalize some details on the next experiment that we'll be running next term. Unfortunately I've been running into a lot of technical problems so wish me luck as I work on that.

And then we have the finals for my Psychology courses. They're spread pretty far apart so I think I'll be ok. It'll give me plenty of time to study and review. And best of all, I don't have multiple exams on the same day.

I'm going to keep this post short, I really should get started with studying. I don't know what to think of this video. It's not animal abuse but I'm not sure why the cat likes it so much.

  7. I'm glad you've hit your holidays! It's not quite the end of term here yet for our students. Have a good one, and try not to get so engrossed in the vidya that you forget about us.

  9. Happy end of term buddy. The video made me laugh too, especially after seeing some of the horrible things that's been shown happening to poor cats in recent weeks, it certainly seems tame to me. Good luck with those multiple exams, sounds rough!

  10. The cat video reminds me of when my dog used to rub her behind on this stand that held our little TV-dinner tray tables to scratch an itch. Eventually we had to move it so she'd stop messing with it.

  15. hahahaha that cat really likes it, must be because it feels good or something, beats me..hahaha

    Yeah I always loved when the semester ended.

    ReplyDelete
  16. So my question is... how did they discover that the cat likes to be spanked?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Good luck with your studying!

    (also is that dude beating his cat up, and is his cat liking it?)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Lol that video cracked me up. I thought it involves animal cruelty at first but then I saw the cat was enjoying it. Cat massage anyone?

    ReplyDelete

  21. Haha very interesting video. Yeah, I've got the rest of this week and then Monday and I'm done with classes, but then I have finals. Really stressed about one class that I need to study for, because it's my favorite class and I think I'm going to get a C in it...and it's the only class I truly loved haha. I need to take the 4th exam tomorrow and then the optional final to hopefully boost my grade to a B.

  28. Wasting space sounds really good.

    Also, my connection is slow so that cat video failed. But I did get some lovely freeze-frames...

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh that would be awesome if you got published, that is a really big deal. maso cat?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Enjoy your games, and good luck with the problems, and apparently, spanking a cat like that is the same as masturbating it.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Some pussies just deserve to be punished? (Okay, that's probably not appropriate for a comment)

    I hope you're able to get your paper published!

  32. Undergrad publications and professor recommendations go a VERY long way to getting into grad school. Certainly not going to hurt any other endeavors.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Good lord that's brilliant! Having your name in a published paper. I congratulate you!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Umm, wow. That cat is a freak. I remember how great it felt when the last exam was finally written and you could relax until the next term (except the time I thought I failed calculus - I've never been so happy to see a D in my life). Good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm quite excited that I only have four finals this semester. :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. get the last things done and out of the way before you have too much social life

  37. LOL that cat loooves the abuse. good luck with your end of semester work. it's nice having days where you don't have anything you have to do :)

    I would try updating the firmware on your router and see if that helps. It usually can remedy weird problems.

    I found some interesting info here about using a custom firmware to avoid some of the "security" issues the company built in by default :O might fix your port forwarding issue but never can be sure

  38. What a crazy cat video. It's disturbing. Well, what a great psychology subject--what makes people think up these things? Glad your term is over and hope you get a bit of a break.

  40. I had to scratch my head when I found out you eat Brussels sprout and not caramel :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. I think the cat likes to get paddled cause its like a deep tissue massage!

    ReplyDelete
  42. That's one of the strangest things I've seen online. What would possess someone to even think of doing that, much less the cat being into it?


    Enjoy your holiday break kiddo.

  43. Best of luck with end of term papers and projects. Cheers!
