Dominomologue

The Dominomologue. That's a series I have to start once I start driving for Dominos.

Anyways, I just finished the last of my business plan for Construction Finance. It looks alright I guess. 9 minutes before I eject.

So quickly - I fixed my computer. The mobo came in a little burned so I'm RMA'ing it. Newegg rocks and they set me up on how to do it very quickly.

Also, the Medieval Fair is coming to town. I love that. Me and Jess and hopefully some more people are going to check it out on Sunday. It's a lot like Man Kingdom, just from a different century. Big mugs, wenches, and turkey legs. I almost forgot about the bow and arrows and axe throwing competitions. Sweet.

Got to learn me some finance.

*pfft*

This is I guess where I have most of my free time. Anyways, here's an update into my life.

It's about to get hectic. Late nights and coffee binges are on the horizon. Why?

I GOT A JOB! WOOT!

Working at Dominos, aside from DJing, is the only thing that can fit my schedule. I'll be delivering fresh hot pizzas to the Gainesville folk, probably 5 days a week on top of my class schedule, night and late night. Can I handle it? We'll see.

But other things have been up. I also got a scholarship! DOUBLE WOOT! From the Huguenot society down in South Florida. Mainly because I like to criticize the Catholic church I guess. But I had to laugh about this little tid-bit I just found out.

A group of Huguenots under the leadership of Jean Ribault in 1562 ended up establishing the small colony of Fort Caroline in 1564, on the banks of the St. Johns River, in what is today Jacksonville, Florida. The colony was the first attempt at any permanent European settlement in the present-day continental United States, but the group survived only a short time. In September 1565, an attack against the new Spanish colony at St. Augustine backfired, and the Spanish wiped out the Fort Caroline garrison.

Not that there were a lot of Huguenots in Jacksonville, but that I have never heard of the French winning a fight of their own. *snicker*

Well, I have an 8-10 page business plan to write tonight, prepare for a presentation, and study for an Estimating 2 exam. O yeah, and the ever-present inescapable fear of Structures, just because I have the class. Shoot me. Reaching that far on a 22-LR is hard enough as it is, let alone aiming properly.

Test Results

I figured I walked out of that test with an A. Nope. No A. A big old C.

Yeah I know, what the fuck? That's what I said. So of course I go in to see the TA as soon as I could. We went over the problems. For one of my force calculations I miscalculated 150 time 120. I somehow got that it was 2000. I don't know how but I was off by 200 units, which bent me over, completely. The TA could see that everything else was right, that I knew how to do the calculations, and that if this was a manually graded test he would have totally given me at least 60% for those questions I had missed. Then I got another part where I didn't remember to balance force loads in the X direction. That was kind of silly mistake, but at least I know what the hell I'm doing. I will make this class my bitch. It's so personal, I've recorded all of my TA's office hours.

Anyways, as you'll probably see, I'm typing this very late. This is my break on the shitter, away from my dreaded Capstone project. But despite it being dreaded by so many people, I really have fallen in love with it. I get to create my project. It's like bringing a dream to life. It's a ton of work, but I feel fine thanks to some of that Adderol I've been prescribed. This is one of those times I don't know if I could complete the assignment without its help. With my computer crashing (Booted into Bios and watched my CPU temperature climb from ambient to 109 degrees celcius - For those that aren't familiar with those kinds of numbers, let me tell you, that is absolutely FUCKING insanely hot), unknowingly falling behind in classes, and scrambling to pull files from my desktop hard drives has left me unnerved.

I suppose the class I'm truly falling behind in is one of those, kind of like Capstone, which forces you to figure things out for yourself. Construction Finance. He hands us all a folder which fills the entirety of my backpack, no joke, and I have to make a business plan. Uh... right. I'll get right on it. Just after I master Structures and Capstone with the mild and everlasting ubiquitous fear of Construction Planning and Estimating II.

*Wipes* Well, all done here.

Test Day


In about an hour, I will face the first test of the worst/hardest class I have encountered during my education at the University of Florida. That class... is Structures.

O sure, Structures, sounds like fun. Maybe you'll build something. NO! You won't build anything. And, I'll try not to criticize the teacher on his abilities, but man, I don't get much by sitting in that class. Also, I'd think that after 7 editions they would learn how to make an easier to understand book. Oi.

So go study Garrett! Print out your materials to prepare for the test! Yeah, you got me there. I should be doing that...
...
...
... Ok done.

Now what else is going on in my life?

Let's see, Mom just checked out my blog, and of course was worried about the title. O NO WHAT WILL MY EMPLOYERS THINK!? This is not my business blog, and even if it was I'd turn on privacy for any articles I don't want people to read. Then again, if she even wiki-ed the title she would understand the interesting problem that it's about. Not that this blog has a lot to do with moral hazards, but the wordplay isn't so bad I think. Amoral has to do with not believing in the existence of morality, which could be hazardous as I believe morals play a big role in life.

Moral hazards occur when a party with more information than another party acts in such a way to take advantage of that other party. In a simple example, this could be when I leave my car in a crime ridden area, doors unlocked, practically expecting to have my car jacked. My insurance will take care of it, or they should at least. A less obvious thing that we have been seeing of a lot is the financial side of this problem.

Straight from Wikipedia: Financial bail-outs of lending institutions by governments, central banks or other institutions can encourage risky lending in the future, if those that take the risks come to believe that they will not have to carry the full burden of losses. Lending institutions need to take risks by making loans, and usually the most risky loans have the potential for making the highest return. So called "too big to fail" lending institutions can make risky loans that will pay handsomely if the investment turns out well but will be bailed out by the taxpayer if the investment turns out badly.

Maybe I should just change the name of my blog to bastard strategy. It's practically synonymous. Mom would love that one too.

Suck it iFans

So right now i'm talking to my phone. Not typing, just speaking. The nexus 1 transcribes all of my words, and it does a really good job. Well, what happened today?


I enjoyed my classes. But the highlight of my day was when i want to the comic club, or when I baked bread. This time, i used parmesan cheese on the bread.


Well anyways, it's getting late than i should go to bed. Maybe i can upload a picture.
