Edit: I AM AWESOME!
Got three in so far. I'll update this as I get the rest.
Animation 125 - Acting for Animation - B+
Animation 151 - Advanced Animation - B
Art 125 - Tone, Color and Composition - B
Art 151 - Basic Life Drawing - B-
Bio 150 - Human Anatomy - A
Film 151 - Film Analysis - B
ANI 151, ART 125, and BIO 150 don't have grades posted yet. I expect to get a B, C, and A in them, respectively.
My current GPA is
3.06 3.13 ( down up from 3.09). If I get the grades I expect, it should shift a little further towards 3.0.
I passed my Freshman year!

I used valuable time that may have been better spent elsewhere, but I've got a little of stage 1 and the hard part of stage 2 on my master plan for Gimpystick done.
Stage 1 is about reminding the members what the rules are so we'll remember what we're there for.
Stage 2 involves taking all of the good critique and advice that's floating around the Gimpystick comment board and consolidating it into one area. A wiki is the easiest format, so we have an Art Wiki!
Stage 3 involves making it much easier to comment. That is, BBcode, inline images, and linking to the wiki. My goal is to auto-link to the wiki, so if someone says "your local value should be lighter than your reflected light" it will automatically give links so people know what the heck is being said. Vocabulary is important!
Once I finish that, I'll have to figure out what to do next.

I want to lay down for myself (and so others can see) what it is I currently have planned. Please keep in mind that while I'm getting better at judging what I can do and when, this list is subject to me being lazy or busy or both. If there's something you like on the list, cross your fingers. Or bug me about it. Either way. My current attitude is shifting more towards a focus on Gimpystick.
Immediate plans: Sit in the magic massage chair for a good 10 minutes, then finish the Anatomy assignment due for class tomorrow. Then sleep.
-Catch up on my schoolwork that was painfully effected by the snow (More snow by morning! Woo. ... Yay.)
-Add the necessary polish to the Seawolf boats in SecondLife to get them released
-Finish up Trivium and put the closing capstone stuff on it so it's over
-Pass all of my classes at DigiPen.
-Update Gimpystick (quick and easy usability features)
a) Make comments easier to use and reply to
b) Auto-scale image option on upload
-Do Morrowind Comics whenever able (probably not)
-Play Ocarina of time when I'm lazy and not busy
-Start and complete the next Seawolf project in SL
-Finish the Morrowind Comic
-Update and universalize look and feel of website
-Get fun new features into Gimpystick
-Beat Ocarina of Time if not done yet, and Wind Waker
-Beat Twilight Princess again
-Spore, UT2k7, check out Stalker
I don't think there's enough time in the summer for all of that, but I can't think past summer right now so it goes there.

Edit: Yay, I got all my grades!
Due to the power outage, getting my grades has been delayed. I was supposed to have all of the grades by midnight of December 20th, but at that point I only had two. I recently got two more, which leaves me bald of two classes still. Here's my grades so far:
Animation 101 - Intro to Animaton - B
Film 115 - Film History - B
Art 115 - Art History - B
English 116 - Storytelling - B
Art 101 - The Language of Drawing - B+
Biology 100 - Visual Perceptions - B+
So far I've got a rather solid B (3.0) average. I really don't know what I'm going to get in Bio or Art 101. But if I had to guess... I'd say a B in both.
And with my last two B+s, I've now got a 3.09 GPA.

My sister recently got her adenoids out. She was supposed to get her tonsils and adenoids out, but the doctor doing the surgery decided that they adenoids didn't need to come out. So a little after she got out of surgery the second time, she decided it would be a good idea to go four wheeling with her finance.
She came over and told us about it afterwards. "Yeah, the rollcage works great. None of the windows even broke or cracked. We just rolled it back over and drove away. We had to replace some transmission fluid that leaked out, but it was fine."

It snowed for a second time this year!
We got a whole two inches or so, and it knocked the power out.
At least the power was only out from 2:30am to 11am. The whole five day outage thing really sucked.

I was helping my mom with a problem on the computer, and took a break to check on something in my room. As I opened the door, a moth came out and flew in my face, then ran off and sat on the wall.
I gathered the medium-to-large sized moth up in my hands, intending to release him outside. My mom's computer was on the way to the back door, so I figured I'd show her the moth. I walked up to her with my hands cupped together, and held them in front of her.
"Isn't not going to attack me, is it?" she asked.
"Yes," I said sarcastically.
I slowly uncupped my hands so I wouldn't make it fly away, but it still did, and went straight for her neck. She screamed, it fluttered around there for a bit, then went for the ceiling.
Then she started hitting me. She always does that when I scare her. And I'm usually laughing too hard to fight back. It's just not fair.
