Well, it's a new day. What's new here? Well, I'm almost done with school. Only a couple more weeks! I'm on the beginning of exam week number 1. That will be fun, gotta love finals.
On the positive side, I got a new laptop! It's great. The only problem I have with it is it's a Vista computer...my desktop is XP. Compatibility? Yeah, not so impressive. I send things from my laptop to my desktop, the exact same program on each computer, and it will crash. Like, I wrote this paper for one of my classes on my laptop using Corel. I sent it to my desktop and it crashed every time I opened it....that wasn't impressive I've got to tell you.
Other than that one problem though, I love it! I love the way it looks, totally different than XP. I'm quite impressed with it and gotta give it full marks on that note.
Other than that, not much going on. Work and school have been so hectic lately. I have a 20 page paper due on Tuesday and I'm only on page 11. Kinda stressing. I'll get it, it's just a matter of how much hair-pulling I have to go through to get there. I find the topic interesting though.
See, I wasn't very smart in my approach to this paper. My original hypothesis was that the economy in Russia led to the downfall of communism in Russia. I had all my research and everything ready and started. Then I changed my topic. The previous thesis was very interesting and would have made a great paper, but in order to make an excellent paper, I would have needed more time than I was given to write it. So, in comes the new thesis: examining whether or not the death penalty actually affects the crime rate, for the purpose of my paper the crime rate being the homicide rate. My standpoint is that it doesn't.
So, at any rate, that's what I'm working on right now.
I'm sorry I haven't been on much, but as I've said, my life has been rather stressful. I hope everyone is doing well...heh, if anyone even remembers me ^.~
I'll talk to you all later! Once school gets over!
Thank you and have a good night!
