I am in the middle of a month of midterms that is going fairly well. I am doing well on the midterms, but the graders for the homework are just killing me. Those graders are just really harsh! Managing school and work seems to be doing fine as of the moment. I think that my school work and work work are balancing out quite well.

I am still in training when it comes to hacking. I think that my thought process is getting a little better. Some things that should come easily are taking a little more time than I would like, but soon I will get the flow of things and will start picking up the pace. My ultimate goal is to be able to be given any task and be able to solve it. I believe that there is a solution to every problem, whether the problem have a simple or complicated solution. And I want to be able to see the solutions. Also, I want to start looking for tasks outside of my work tasks so that I can expand my problem solving abilities.

Working at the restaurant is just a drag now. It's the same thing everyday. Sure there is cash in hand everyday that I work, meaning less trips to the bank, but it takes time out of my day which I would rather not give up.

It always is a little slow when you are learning new things. Don't worry, you'll be flying by the end of the semester.

learn what you can....its buss ass work, but, it is one of the best ways to put cash in the bank. Sometimes you gotta endure the long hours, the nasty customers, the co-workers that get in your space/face. Try to pick the one thing, the one person, the one boss, try to pick the one thing and enjoying going in everyday just for that one thing. When I was a hostess (doing 750 dinners a night), I used to tell myself that one of these days, someone is gonna walk in that door and be from that show candid camera, where they try to get you to do or say something, all the while youre being filmed, everyday a customer would make me feel that way, but at the end, I got the last laugh
