    -Yes I am finally at the transferring stage in
    my college career whew.
    I am applying to all 4 campuses
    online right at this very moment.
    3 campuses are in state & 1 is outta state.
    I'm def searching for local scholarships
    & applying for (FAFSFA) as well asap.
    (EOPS) = (Educational Provider Services)
    aids in providing discounts for college
    textbooks as well as provide in-house tutoring etc.
    I'm applying via that online application
    it's a long process ugh.
    I can't until its all over & I can rest.
    I also plan on applying to the 3 campus
    scholarship lists provided by each campus.
    + the outside scholarships that
    I know of, it's exhausting.
    I now need to finish my math transferable
    classes next year & be done.
    My goal is to be gone by
    Fall 2019 or Spring 2020.
    It will depend on which campuses
    I get into & the math classes available
    next semester ugh why me?
    Its more complicated than that though.
    I'm actually more worried about the programs
    that I'm auditioning for tbh.
    They're very hard to get into & competitive ugh.
    Everyone & their sister & sister's children
    wanna get into the top ASL ITP 's ugh.
    One of the campuses I wanna get into
    doesn't have a B.A program but
    the other 3 campuses def do.
    If I end up getting into the campus
    that doesn't have it then I'll need to
    transfer over once I get my B.A degree
    into another field.
    The one thing that's awesome
    about this field is ya don't need
    a degree in ASL interpreting to become
    an ASL interpreter let alone successful in it.
    But I do want to get into a B.A degree in it bcuz
    it will make the whole process easier for me,
    CSUN is crazy competitive & they
    only accept 20 out of over 100 student
    applicants a semester; ugh it's Soooooo hard .
    CSULB campus program is new & relatively unknown
    as far as competition goes.
    Then there is NCSU who offers an online
    program & an on campus program for both
    B.A & M.A degrees programs
    in ASL Interpreting yay.
    Of course I chose the online option lol.
    However if accepted I will be in classes with students
    from across the nation & all over the world.
    They work your a** off to make up
    for the fact ya not on campus.
    U must attend the campus every Summer though
    & are in class from 8am-4pm Mon-Sun.
    But its worth it in the long run,
    the cost for the Summer session is $1,200.
    Talk about in need of scholarships lol.
    I actually would prefer to do it online
    instead of in-person but I'll see.
    If I don't get in for their B.A then I'm
    going for their M.A degree program for sure.
    I'm excited & nervous ?.
    -Other than that I'm just taking exams
    in my current classes left & right.
    -For thanksgiving I plan on hangin
    with my cousins & eating.
    -I saw the film: Venom starring Tom Hardy,
    it was actually pretty cool & entertaining.
    It had some good comedic moments too lol.
    Venom the symbiote is a mess & is controlling.
    A sequel is well underway & will include
    Carnage the red symbiote.
    I'm looking forward to reading the
    Venom comics now to learn the back story.
    -I am waiting for Xmas to happen
    so I can eat some Xmas desserts lol.
    I'm already doin Xmas shopping early for ppl.
    -At this point I'm waiting on 2019
    to get a new phone, buying cheaper
    devices won't be doing myself any favors.
    -Ready for Xmas?
    -Hows Lily?
    -Is ya phone working right?
    -Passed ya recent exams?

    FAFSA does help. They gave me enough money this year that I think I can stretch it for both years. Since I'm still working part time and the huz is getting a job soon, I'm hoping I can pay off part of the loan while I'm still in school.

    Ah, that sounds like my program. After you apply, they tell about half of the applicants to go to a mandatory info session. Of that half, they accept fewer than half. It's super stressful. I got into the program and I feel like I'm still onboarding.

    Lol, hope you eat lots of food!

    Cool! We haven't seen a movie in theaters since the Incredibles, I think.

    Haha, I try to do my xmas shopping all year if I can. :P

    Lily's doing a bit better. She's sleeping through more of the night now. She's getting jittery again when we leave though. Side effect of feeling better, I guess. :P

    Phone is working decent. The network it's on stinks.

    I did. I'm soooooooooo excited. I did well in all of them, but I'm excited it did well on one in particular. The class is just 2 exams, a group paper, and a final exam. And anything less than 79% is considered failing. I got an 80% on the first exam. There was a miscommunication about what material would be on the exam, so I stopped just short of a concept that he included. He turned that concept into 4 questions. D: And then I made an arithmetic mistake. I thought it was wrong, but when I recalculated, I got the same answer, so I thought maybe the teacher meant to use milliseconds instead of seconds or something. Turns out my cheap calculator didn't catch a button I pushed BOTH times. And then I had the right answer marked for a different question on my exam, but I mismarked it on my scantron and didn't catch it when I looked things over. It was just a stupid amount of dumb BS that piled up and crushed me, so I busted my ass for the second exam. Just shy of a perfect score. Makes me feel soooooo much better. Especially because I felt as though I was the only one freaking out about this class. After this second test, the rest of the class is freaking out too. XD Now I just need to do well on my finals in a few weeks.

    -Thanks, yes I ended up passing
    both exams in Bio-Psych & Health with
    80s out of 100 points.
    Congrats on passing your exam.
    I bet it was very stressful.
    I have gone back & made mistakes
    on exams in the past too.
    Ur def NOT alone lol,
    it helps to breathe & eat candy
    before a hard exam hehehe.
    Trust ya gut instinct when
    it comes to ya first answer per question.
    Hmmm can the struggling students
    earn any extra credit points?
    -I do have one more semester
    & a Summer session left before
    I can transfer to a 4 yr campus.
    I'm hoping I'll get accepted after applying.
    I begin applying next week to schools.
    I'm excited & nervous ?
    -Oh I see, did U watch the vid
    I sent you in a PM?
    It talks about phone plans.
    -Awww poor Lily, she's
    losing her hearing now.
    Does she sleep in the bed w/U at night?
    -I'm 50/50 on Sabrina Dark Witch series,
    I was never crazy about the comedy show
    or cartoon tv series, it was just okay.
    I know this one is very gloomy
    & demonic fm what I've read online.
    -Getting ready for Turkey Day this November?
    http://media.giphy.com/media/b0nLVfjeWBkfm/giphy.gif


    Lol, eating candy at 7 in the morning is a bit rough. XD

    There isn't really much of an opportunity for extra credit. :/ I just gotta not do any worse than the 80%

    How exciting! Although, I hated filling out all of those forms and doing all of those essays. Do you still need to do the standardized testing?

    I think I'm just gonna get a walkie talkie at some point and say screw the phone! xD Or maybe my husband and I could eventually get away with sharing one phone like my uncle and aunt do.

    She doesn't often anymore. She used to help herself up and off the bed during the night, but she can't jump up on it by herself anymore. And until recently, she'd been too disruptive during the night to sleep on our bed. She typically sleeps on the floor now. We tried laying out pillows for her, but I don't think she likes them. And we don't have enough room to fit the dog bed anymore, although she didn't use it when we did have room. :P We made her a little spot between the dresser and tv stand tho. We grabbed a blanket we usually use on the couch for her and folded it over a few times to make it softer. She liked it more than we thought she would. But last night she was pacing around the bed and stopping to stare at both of us, which meant she wanted up. So I plopped her on the bed and she slept between us. :P

    I never watched the cartoon, but I liked the tv show as a kid. Not that I can recall any of it now. xD

    I am looking forward to staying home for turkey this year. Last year was weird and I'm not traveling with the dogs.

    -Wow I hope you pass all 7 exams next week.
    I passed my Bio-Psych exam last week &
    I just took a health exam yesterday, won't know
    my results until next week ugh.
    I believe I passed it though, bcuz I studied,
    so the exam wasn't too hard.
    -Ur program seems very strict on scores.
    Know anyone whose been kicked out
    for having below 79% ?
    Congrats on getting a smaller scholarship.
    What is an in-service?
    -Yeah hopefully The Exorcist will get a season 3.
    I have NEVER been a fan of AHS ugh, it's
    never done anything for me in terms of entertainment.
    Are U gonna see the new:
    Chilling adventures of Sabrina the Teenage Witch?
    It's a dark take that follows the dark comic book series
    Some fans are excited others are mad lol.
    -Well you need to get certified separately
    in the medical avenue for ASL interpreting
    if you strictly wanna do medical interpreting,
    but there are a ton of ethics & liabilities involved.
    Talk about being stressed the f*** out lol.
    overall U can either work for
    urself which is called (freelance) interpreting
    or work for an interpreter agency & they send U to jobs
    & tell U how much ya gonna get paid.
    (Freelance) interps can charge however much
    they want for their services & have more
    choices for jobs that become available,
    the only downside is pay isn't consistent like
    a regular income due to it changing monthly.
    Or U can do private interpreting where U
    follow or meet with a Deaf client & solely
    work for them & they pay U accordingly based
    on ya certifications, degrees & yrs of experience.
    So it all honestly depends on what U want in this field.
    Yeah maybe the hospital doesn't wanna pay an agency the full amount.
    I want my certifications in:
    theatre & law interpreting mainly
    & my national certification as an interpreter, that's it
    no medical interpreting for me.
    It's an official PASS lol.
    -Lol ooooh I see, is ur new phone
    better than the last JGalaxy?
    I read that SSG is discontinuing the JGalaxy series.
    I am def waiting until next year to get the phone I want.
    Waiting 3 months afterwards is a
    better financial decision on my part.
    The new IPhone & SSG 10 is coming out in 2019
    but I don't want those phones ugh.
    -Oh no poor Lily, I hope she feels better.
    I read once how a guy adopted 3
    cancer ridden dogs from the shelter
    & saved them by feeding them a healthy
    organic diet & making them eat a weird
    powder which helped shrink their tumors.
    The vet was amazed.
    I'll search for & send ya the link in a priv msg.
    I am sorry for the horrible news regarding Lily.
    How is the puppy holding up?
    http://media.giphy.com/media/xUNda8byUGZDQBCwne/giphy.gif

    I passed. I got an 80% on a tough one. I was pretty annoyed about that one. I should have done much better than I did. Part of the problem was 5 of the questions were basically the exact same and I skipped that portion of the chapter because he told us we weren't covering that material for this exam. And then I made one arithmetic error. I thought the answer was a little ridiculous, so I checked it a second time, but I made the same mistake (my finger added an extra 0 on one of the numbers and I didn't notice). That was a rather dumb mistake. And on another question, I was able to eliminate 3 of the 4 choices, giving me the answer, but instead of putting that answer, I put one of the three that I ruled out. @.@ I don't know how it happened because I recheck all of my answers, but it happened and I lost points that I shouldn't have. Having 3 exams back-to-back-to-back that day probably didn't help. Now I just can't do any worse in that class and I'll be safe. >.>

    Good job! Are these the last of your pre-reqs?

    No one is getting kicked out until the end of the quarter, but there are a few people that are struggling.

    An in-service is just a day for teachers to get their shit together. XD

    AHS is alright, depending on the season. I liked Roanoke more than most of the others, but I guess it wasn't a fan-favorite. :P

    I actually am curious about it right now, but Netflix isn't really my thing.

    Lol, I don't blame you. Healthcare is a lot of work...

    The phone itself is basically the same as my last, but the network it's on is substantially worse than my last, so I hate it a lot more. :P

    Bladder cancer doesn't really work like that, unfortunately. It's very malignant and when it's detected in dogs, it's typically at its advanced stages. And because of its location, she can't have it surgically removed.

    The puppy is doing just fine. Lily likes having her around because she can't hear things as well. When the puppy barks at people outside, it gives her an excuse to bark as well. :P

    -Glad to see your still alive lol.
    Yeah I figured you had either began
    classes or was working overtime.
    Wow so how are your exams going?
    -I am applying to cal states this
    month from Oct to Nov.
    Wish me luck,
    I'm attending a register workshop
    that assists U applying to colleges
    & then another that aids in showing
    how to apply for scholarships.
    -Welp I'll see Black Panther during
    the Turkey Day break then I'll
    see Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2.
    I saw Hereditary, it was full of sh**.
    It was so over hyped & such a drag.
    I was utterly disappointed ugh.
    It did have some heavy topics and disturbing
    reveals about certain characters but nothing
    compared to the uncut Exorcist from the 70s.
    I wish critics would STOP comparing every
    horror film to it, imo nothing else
    since the original has the affect
    on the masses since its debut.
    The Exorcist tv show might have
    a 3rd season & go directly to Netflix, Hulu, or Syfy.
    Fans are petitioning to save it & they almost
    have a total of 10,000 signatures.
    It's a spin-off with diff storylines,
    I actually find it entertaining.
    -When it comes to films
    I still need to see: (Christopher Robin),
    it simply looks adorable & funny
    + I wanna see the thriller: (The Nun).
    I do wanna see the action suspenseful
    (Venom) film but probably will wait.
    I need to see a film for one of my classes alone
    & this will definitely be it lol.
    I also wanna see the new (Halloween) film
    starring Jamie Lee Curtis, it looks good.
    -Hmmm I can't believe there is
    only a limited amount of ASL
    Interps available in ya area.
    Washington DC is where
    Galludet University is located.
    Its the only Uni in the world where Deaf
    students have a campus tailored to them
    where all staff on campus is Deaf & uses ASL.
    They also have an undergrad program for
    hearing ASL interpreting students.
    I've heard of them sending alumni
    to various settings for work,
    it just seems weird that your short on supply.
    But possibly the hospital may NOT wanna
    pay a certified interpreter the full amount
    due to certified interps being far from cheap.
    -Lol Sprint is horrifying fm what my bestie told me
    he oddly enough is with Verizon Wireless now.
    I don't like T-Mobile bcuz their signals are unbearable
    & Sprint well U already know.
    I plan on getting on w/At&t however
    I plan on using a prepaid carrier
    that At&t now owns & shares its polls with.
    That will def save me thousands of $ a year
    I'll send you a priv vid link on prepaid carriers
    that work under major carriers.
    It might help you make a good decision
    in the future for ya service w/Ur hubby.
    U can respond to it in ya future gbp
    be sure to view the whole video first hahaha.
    Wow congrats on the amazing upgrade my friend.
    How is the SSG S9?
    is it pretty? lol.
    Are U gonna trade it in for
    sumthin smaller & lighter?
    I plan to wait & get a new
    unlocked droid next 2019.
    Gonna wait & buy it 3 months after its initial release,
    by then I'll be able to save over $500.
    The droid I wanted has too
    many issues with wifi connection
    & privacy probs ugh.
    -How do U prepare ya skin
    for Fall freezing weather?
    I ask bcuz I know where U live
    ya experience real seasons.
    Is it snowing yet?
    I plan on purchasing some
    thick body butters for my
    extremely dry skin.
    I also am gonna invest in
    gud face moisturizer & serum
    as well as face wash & exfoliation
    that all cater to dryess & sensitivity.
    My face has horrible dry rashes due to
    lack of moisture ugh.
    -How is Lily & the puppy?
    Looking forward to Halloween?

    I've got above 90% for everything, but the scale for the program is shifted funny. 90% is technically B range and if you average below 79%, you can get kicked out. D: It's a lot of pressure. And I am super good at second guessing myself on exams. I have 3 next Monday, another 2 on Wednesday, and two graded labs on Friday, which are basically like exams.

    Good luck! I got a small scholarship for this year. Kind of a pain, really. I should have an in-service next Tuesday, but I have to go to a function for my scholarship that day. If I don't, they'll take it away. :/

    Oh, yea, I saw both seasons of the Exorcist on tv. I thought it was pretty decent. It was one of my favorite Halloween shows that comes on this time of the year. American Horror is hit-or-miss. Last season was a big miss. I haven't started the current one yet.

    Yea, I'm not sure how difficult it is to get certified for healthcare interpretation, so idk. :/

    Verizon has a great network, but they are ridiculously expensive. We decided to save over a hundred bucks a month and just hate our phones instead.

    I don't have an S9. I forget what it is because Sprint didn't put its name on the back like Verizon did, but it's very similar to my last phone. Just on a crummy network now. :P

    Lol, we actually don't really experience all 4 seasons here, so to speak. We get cold in the winter, but it isn't typically below freezing. It depends on the year tho. Sometimes we can get a little snow. Probably not this year, it seems. We have more spring/fall weather here. In Utah, it was more summer/winter. :P

    Lily actually has cancer. We found out last month that she has a tumor on her bladder. Because of its location, it can't be removed. She can't hold it for more than 5-6 hours so sleep has been irregular for a few months now. We were basically instructed to make her as comfortable as possible for as long as we can.

    the films:
    Guardian of the Galaxy Vol.2
    & Black Panther.
    I want to see them
    before viewing the
    Avengers Infinity War movie.
    Reason being is that
    I like being caught up on
    everything & not going in blind.
    The only recent film
    I saw was: Truth or Dare.
    I still wanna see:
    1) Disney's Christopher Robin
    2) Hereditary
    and
    3) Jurassic Park Fallen Kingdom.
    Other than those new films
    theres nothin else I wanna see.
    -As far as phones go
    I am being picky becuz
    cheap phones don't seem
    to have longevity w/me
    & now neither do free

    Its worth it to wait & seek

    longer if all goes according to plan.
    How's ya J galaxy doing?
    Fixed it yet?
    -I begin Fall Semester next week.
    I passed my Summer session w/a "B" grade.
    Now I have 2 lectures & a lab.
    thanks for the offered help but I already spoke
    to my counselor & chose a better professor.
    -I can't wait for the rain to come,
    its soooooo overdue.
    -Why is it hard to get ASL Interpreters
    in the hospital U work in?
    http://media.giphy.com/media/12FACXKIaQas3C/giphy.gif

    I liked Infinity Wars a lot more than Black Panther. Black Panther wasn't bad, but it wasn't the cultural god-send that everyone's made it out to be. It was a super hero origin flick with a whole lotta CG. And one that was arguably late to the game.

    Guardians of the Galaxy 2 was decent as well. I only sat thru it once so far. The character dynamics are fun in those films.

    I'm a little curious about Venom, but I'm not sure I'll see it in theaters

    We switched to Sprint because Verizon was so ridiculously expensive, so I got a new Samsung. Their network is absolute shit. It's cheap for a reason, haha! Fortunately, I'm not crazy attached to my phone. Nor do I need it out in the middle of nowhere very often.

    School started for me too. It's such a drag. Multiple exams every week for the next 2 years.

    I don't know. I'm assuming there aren't many certified in the area. I've only seen one ASL interpreter and she showed up for all of this pt's appointments. Nobody else was grabbing the jobs.

    Good Evening Somnus!
    -I ended up failing my Health course.
    I will be taking it again in the Fall semester.
    Hopefully for the last time ugh.
    I might have either one more
    semester or an entire year left
    of classes to take in order to transfer.
    It all depends on what the colleges
    I'm applying to tell me *sighs*.
    Wish me luck.
    -Nope, def won't settle for a
    cheap quality made droid.
    I will just wait until some
    new popular flagships come out.
    Once the flagships are revealed,
    I'll then be looking for slightly
    older models to buy.
    However there is one catch.
    I plan on buying the...........
    'certified refurbished' versions.
    I just entered the world of
    certified refurbished
    & I'm loving it esp when it
    comes w/a warranty lol.
    I'll provide you with a few
    links giving the deets on
    refurbished phones overall.
    -Speaking on phone carriers,
    I've decided to bite the bullet
    & use: Straight Talk Wireless.
    It's now owned by AT&T.
    ST uses AT&T polls.
    I'm choosing prepaid
    mainly because I am
    still a college student &
    need to save money.
    Even after I finish college
    I still plan on using a
    prepaid service for a good while.
    I will be with At&t for now but
    in the long run I'm def switching
    over to Verizon Wireless.
    Let me explain, there are indeed
    some unlocked phones that
    strictly work on Verizon Wireless.
    Plus I'll be buying the phone online.
    Several prepaid carriers
    use Verizon Wireless polls.
    They just aren't advertised.
    Hmmmm I wonder why?
    -The prepaid options these days
    are practically limitless.
    I'm all about saving tons of $ these days.
    -Hmmm how do the Spanish
    Interpreters you see have it rough?
    I know there are a strict rules for
    ASL interpreters in regards to:
    attire, hair styles, colors contrasting w/skin tones,
    wearing jewelry, high heels, makeup, logos etc.
    Plus there are tons of certifications one needs
    in order to become a legit interpreter along with
    having a national certification; not
    to mention having a B.A Degree simultaneously.
    I just so happen to want a B.A & M.A degree.
    I just want certifications in certain areas though.
    They happen to be in:
    1. theater/stage interpreting,
    2. Law/Courtrm,
    3. both parts of National Certificate.
    It is a very difficult field to enter.
    You need to know the right people
    & already be fluid in the language.
    And if your NOT fluid/fluent then
    U better be semi-fluent at best.
    You can still learn the language
    while in an ITP (Interpreter Training Program)
    but its a much longer process & honestly a lot tougher.
    People have done in though so
    it's not exactly IMPOSSIBLE.
    -That's where I come in lol.
    I still have a ton of
    growing to do ugh.
    I have improved a great deal
    over the years, that is a fact.
    However I do feel that could've
    been a whole lot better if I had been
    pre-immersed in the signing community.
    My skills would be on par w/some of the best by now.
    But alas they aren't due to lack of involvement.
    Now years later I'm playing catch up ugh.
    But I am finally meeting people who are willing
    to help me & connect me to resources.
    I am also volunteering at small Deaf events
    & looking into professional Deaf settings
    Especially working w/the Deaf.
    It's a hard knock life, but I'm NOT giving up.
    Sadly several of my former peers from our ITP
    have given up on the dream &, now focused on
    other fields involving sign-language but def
    not interpreting of any sort.
    I am shocked bcuz
    their skills surpassed mine in class.
    Whelp I'm still going strong LMAO.

    - Hmmm I feel the same with Amazon.
    You need to search really hard to find treasures.
    There are cheap ass items everywhere.
    But def don't give up hope.
    -The weather is hot here now.
    Muggy weather is awful.
    Been drinking tons of
    H20 & fruity juices?
    Seen any recent movies?

    I'm sorry! Anything I can do to help with your class?

    xD I don't put that much effort into my phone selection, lol

    I can't remember what I was thinking at the time, but I think I felt bad because there are so many Spanish interpreters. They all have to compete with one another for jobs constantly.

    That's good! Keep with it and give it a chance if you really love it. =D ASL interpreters are some of the toughest ones for us to get. I actually only know of one that we regularly get and she's quite young.

    Lol, I have been drinking a bit more water, especially on days when I'm working in the yard.

    I finally saw Lala Land recently. It was better than I expected. The last movie I saw in theaters was Antman & The Wasp, which was pretty fun.

    -Sadly I failed my recent Health exam.
    My next exam in the class is in 1 week.
    Technically its 1 wk & 4 days.
    I still don't know what I received on
    my latest Poli-Sci exam though.
    I'm going to begin studying for my
    Poli-Sci final exam asap which is
    on the 1st week of June
    & so is my final in Health class ugh.
    I still can raise my Health class
    grade if I do well on the next 3 exams.
    I'm doing okay in Poli-Sci this far.
    -Awww Lily is that much of a snob?!
    How predictable lol.
    Your pup is NOT that smart after all.
    You better enjoy these moments
    while they last bcuz when it clicks
    ur stress free days will be over lol.
    -Yeah I definitely plan using:
    Luxury hostels & Airbnb
    alternative services for POC
    once I attain my degrees &
    certifications in my field asap.
    Then I'll be travelling a lot more
    for work but also for volunteering
    opportunities abroad during
    the Summer seasons.
    Due to work on campuses
    being non-existent in Summer.
    One must find work elsewhere.
    I'd luv to work in international Universities
    for Deaf students abroad.
    I think that would be really fun.
    Not to mention stretching my
    network community sociably.
    -Oh no, your phone is already flipping
    out on U after one fall & 1 paw print?!
    That must suck big time.
    1.) Do U plan on getting ur
    J Galaxy's audio issue
    checked out?
    2.) Have U found a lighter
    weighing cover 4 ya droid yet?
    3.) Gonna get the screen fixed?
    -I now no longer plan on
    saving up for the new:
    Xiaomi Mi 7 or Huawei P20.
    Both phones are cool, but
    I don't like how they look
    & cost $840+up
    Won't be using either brand
    unless I get lucky later
    this year & someone offers
    to buy it for me as a gift *rolls eyes*
    I doubt that will happen though.
    Now I want a budget friendly option.
    It's called an: Honor View10.
    aka the (HV10).
    It's technically owned by Huawei
    but is a subsidiary of it, w/it's own
    models of phones.
    Since its sold
    across the EU its NOT
    on the FBI/NSA/CIA's
    watch list yay lmao.
    I luv that it also has 2
    card slots & best of all
    comes in a multitude
    of colors to choose fm.
    I want to purchase
    the RED version soooo badly.
    its been a while since
    I had a red colored phone.
    It cost around $538
    It features nice specs.
    Once I have it, I'll modify
    it to my liking.
    I also plan to use it for
    checkin my MT msgs hehehe.
    No more using a large tablet.
    I'll only use my tablet
    for class papers thats it.
    -One idea 4 U is to look on
    indie business sites
    like: Etsy if U want to
    find unique covers for ur phone.
    That's what I plan on doing.
    Plus I like that I can ask ppl
    that make covers
    for customized designs.
    I'll purchase non-cheap
    back covers of course lol.
    They sell wide range
    of covers too, cheap as dirt covers
    to nice fancy covers.
    Just depends on what
    Ur looking for.
    Amazon & Ebay are ok
    but their selections
    is so drab.
    I def will be buying
    a HQ glass shield for my
    display screen asap.
    I like being safe
    than sorry esp since I
    plan on havin it out
    while in usage.
    -How's the weather?
    Over here it's humid.
    *drinks a bottle of cold h20*

    How did the rest of your exams go?!?!?!

    Haha, hopefully it never clicks. She's kind of a dumb pansy. I'm sure if she hangs out with other dogs tho, she'll learn a few tricks...

    :P I think you may need to bite the bullet and settle on a cheapish phone from a common carrier.

    That sounds cool. I'm friends with a Spanish interpreter at my job and she might do some teaching down in Mexico. It's pretty cool, but all of the interpreters seem to have it rough.

    Yea, I need to upgrade it, unfortunately. Thankfully I don't make many calls, so it isn't a pressing matter yet. I'm not planning on fixing it. It's not worth that much. :P Now that I'm having some trouble with the call quality, I don't think I'll be fixing the screen. I'll keep using it until we can upgrade it. My husband wants to change carriers once he's out of the military, so we'll wait until then. And I don't have the droid anymore.

    I've given up on Etsy. It had really cool stuff on it at first, but now I find lots of second hand items, like Beanie Babies for sale. And most of the handmade stuff is very amateur-esque and overpriced now. :/ I'm not big on phone cases anyways because they tend to get in the way or you upgrade your phone and it no longer has any use.

    Lol, we had a mild hot spell, but it's mostly been overcast this week. So it's been kind of warm, a little muggy. It looks like it might be a relatively mild summer so far.

    Sorry for the late reply.
    -Sadly I failed the Poli-Sci exam.
    I received a low "D" grade, ugh.
    I'm NOT the only one though,
    others in my class failed it too.
    For my next exam aka Mid-term I'm
    just gonna read all the chapters,
    reference the chapter quizes,
    then follow the study guide
    & focus on finding the answers to that
    using in class lecture notes &
    power point pdf files.
    Hopefully I'll get a high "C+" grade.
    I did however pass my Health exam.
    I received a "C" letter grade only
    due to missing too many vocabulary terms.
    If I would have missed 3 instead of 6
    then I would've gotten a solid "B" grade.
    Ugh why me?
    My next Poli-Sci exam is 1 week away.
    My next health exam is next Friday morning.
    Wish me luck on both exams & keep
    me in your prayers lol.
    -I think it's cute how your puppy still
    can't escape from her play pen despite the
    fact she &, it are the same height lmao.
    It's mature of her to not cry
    in ya absence at her age.
    How is Lily handling her receiving
    all of these privileges?
    Me thinks she will need therapy lol.
    -Hmmm I haven't seen any new anime
    series other than Erased up until recently.
    It's a horror genre called: Kings Game.
    It's interesting so far but not amazing.
    I might be switching to sumthin else soon.
    -I would love to travel using a nice hostel
    or an Airbnb alternative.
    Airbnb has too much drama attached
    to it these days ugh I'll pass.
    I know I previously mentioned:
    Couch Surfing negativly but
    I was still considering using
    it as a last minute resort during
    an emergency.
    But thankfully I have discovered
    a safer albeit non-free
    professional service to use.
    It's similar to CouchSurfing in
    that you use it for temporary stay
    but thats where the similarities end.
    This service specializes in last minute booking.
    You don't make plans to vaca anywhere
    for 2 weeks or more in advance.
    This is more of:
    *I've got 1 hr to find somewhere WTF do I do?*
    U can even use groups that Ur apart of
    w/in the site for recommendations.
    It can help make the process faster.
    Members living in an area where
    U currently are located must
    respond within the next 6 to 12 mins.
    It's safer than CouchSurfing in that
    U must verify your I.D & payment method.
    U can also lookup the person's phone #
    & address to see if it's real using Googlemaps-
    like services online to be sure of legitimacy.
    -I'm no longer interested in buying:
    One+6 phone anymore.
    I dislike the new design yuck.
    I have my eyes on 2 other foreign brands:
    Xiaomi Mi 7 & Huawei P20.
    Both are nice & around the same price.
    Both are up to date w/specs etc.
    Extremely Cheaper phones are cute &
    all but based off of my horrible luck with
    cheap devices that's cost me
    $89-$120 in the past & have
    failed 6 months after initial investment;
    I'd rather pay more money & get
    a better quality device, that will last
    more than 6 months to a year.
    I plan on having this device for
    a good 3-5 yrs if possible.
    What hooked me w/both brands
    is the fact that they contain
    Dual SIM card slots.
    Most brands now n days don't.
    They prefer to use an electronic
    SIM card instead yuck.
    I think its cuz they want to
    force the user to bcum dependent
    on that particular company.
    How's ya current phone functioning?
    I think you should at least buy a
    back protective cover for it regardless
    of U not rough housing w/it hardly ever.
    It's better to be safe than sorry I always say.

    That's a lot of work! Gotta get started early! I hope your next exams go well!

    Haha, every time my sister sees her in her playpen, she says the same thing: "How does she not get out?"

    Lol, Lily only cares about herself. Woe is Lily. :P

    That sounds kind of cool. I don't really travel enough for any of these services tho. :P

    Lol, you'll find your perfect phone some day. :P Mine is doing alright. The puppy knocked it off the couch while it was charging, then stepped on it right after, so the screen is a little scratched/cracked. I also noticed that people stop hearing me if I walk around with the phone. I'm not sure if it's just in the house, like a weird pseudo-dead zone, or if it's all the time and there's a problem with my phone. As far as I know, it was fine until the puppy got to it.

    Lol, my last phone cover actually didn't mesh well with my phone. It kept tripping the sensor and running down the battery faster.

    -I passed my classes, my grades were:
    a "C" in Astronomy & a "B" in U.S. History.
    I am now taking 2 more classes this semester.
    -My Xmas was fine, I spent it with family.
    -How was your Xmas & New Yrs?
    -I've been looking at hostel reviews,
    they as in the hostels seem very nice.
    They have about the same ammenities
    as a luxury hostel+100s of $ cheaper,
    depending on the country & location.
    What's the cheapest hostel you've
    ever stayed in?
    -How's work this far?
    -Seen any new films?

    hey! long time!
    I'm happy you passed your subjects! (even though, I must recognize I'm not very familiar with that way of marking so I don't really know if those are good marks or not T__T)
    Hostels are good while you're fine sleeping with many people you don't know xD there are some of them are not that clean but, generally, they're fine in that part. And I don't remember the price, but I know all the hostel where we stayed during our interrail were really cheap. Maybe the ones in Germany and Austria were more expensive but because those are more expensive countries in general.

    And I've not seen many fiilms but I've started many new animes! like yowamushi pedal (or something like that) and others from the new season!

    how about you? ^^

    see you soon!
