To start with, progress on things I owe people is slow. I don't have a whole lot of time to sit down and sketch out the nightmares I owe *LiquidLeo and ~Sweet-Assassin and the sketch of toothless I owe *xkarolinax666 or the pronz I owe *Irken-Risk. I'm probably forgetting something else I owe somebody too. ><; Remind me if I owe you something... OH! I still owe =RoboticMasterMind a sketch too. *facepalm* I'm so behind. I'm sorry. Good thing nobody has me commissioned right now! I'll try to work on some of those tonight when I get home from school. I need a break from all the programming anyway.
Speaking of programming, the third project for my C++ class is due today. One program calculates the distance between a randomly generated set point and 20 randomly generated points and then prints it out for you to see in a neat little chart. The other program is a mortgage calculator and it calculates your mortgage and how many payments you have to pay before you pay off your loan. They took forever to do and I'm so very happy that they're done now. Next week we have an even harder problem due. I have to write a program that reproduces an ancient dice game akin to yahtzee. It's really hard because I can't figure out how I want to have the user score their roll. I just started on it, so I'm not surprised that I'm struggling at this point. Why did they have to pick such a hard thing to do? *laughs* Oh well. I have til next Monday to get it done. c: Right now all it will do is roll the dice for you and I think I should use an array for that instead of the way I'm doing it... Hmmm... That would work a lot better actually... *makes note to go in and change that*
I'm sitting here in the programming lab right, obviously not doing programming as I sit here and type away in notepad. Holy crap. I just noticed that somebody is JUST starting their programs. They took me DAYS to complete and I'm pretty bright with this stuff. He's never going to finish by midnight tonight. Poor fool. Anyway...
From art news to school news, it's now time for work news! So you read me mentioning that the Black Friday hours for work are ridiculous this year, right? Well, they totally are. I don't get to eat Thanksgiving dinner this year because of them. Why is that? Don't you ususally eat Thanksgiving dinner sometime between 4pm and 7pm? Well, my family usually doesn't start cooking until really late in the day, so we don't normally eat til 7 or 8 pm. This is a problem because Best Buy is opening at SIX pm this year. And I thought MIDNIGHT was bad last year. So, no thanksgiving dinner for Rae. And I'm probably going to have to open on Thanksgiving and then come back the next day to close. Some of the higher ups have been saying we'll be working two 12 hour shifts with 6-7 hours between the shifts (which is against the law, mind you >>) or something akin to that. I'm thinking it'll be more like 5pm-5am and then back at 5pm-11pm since we close at 10 Black Friday. All I know is that between the hours of midnight and 8 or 9 am, it's going to be DEAD in the store and we'll be sitting around with our thumbs up our asses just like last year and the year before that and the year before that. -3-; I HATE Black Friday. I hate retail. I can't wait to graduate college and get a real life desk job writing programs all day. CAN'T. WAIT.
Anyway, that's the update for November 11, 2013. c:
