Online Journal (Entry #012)

Before I begin, here’s what I’m listening to today as I write this post! Click here to check it out. (It’s from one of my favorite handheld games, Fire Emblem!)

I also wanted to share that I’ve added another segment of my book into the end of this post! If you want to go ahead and read it, you can skip what I’ll be discussing in today’s entry. I’ll mainly be reflecting on the next new class that I had today on top of Statistics and Accounting 101. 

So before I actually begin with the school segment of my life, I thought I’d update you guys on my work-life. So one of the co-president’s of Reborn Café got back to all of us, and let us know that we will be given our training schedule in the next couple of days. That means I’ll have to drive for an hour and a half to the location (lol). But it’ll only be for 1 week, perhaps 3 or 4 days in total. I heard it may even be 2 days, but I doubt it will be that way in my case since I’ll need to leave training earlier since I have class at 1:40. So I might have 4 days total.

Anyways, I can’t wait to actually begin. I’m looking forward to at least trying to grow with this awesome South Korean company; it’ll be interesting how things develop, and I’m ready to dive right into this new chapter of my life!

So shifting gears back to college now!

Accounting 101 has been incredibly interesting and insightful. My professor creates lectures and group-work which isn’t only engaging, but also informative of the types of problems and issues we could very well face in the workforce. Yesterday I had the class, but I had uploaded my Online Journal (Entry #011) early since I knew I wouldn’t have time to post after class. I already have a heavy workload of homework, which isn’t anything new in college. But for some reason, this semester seems very heavy on the work. I have about 30 pages to read for my Stats class, and about another 42 pages to read for my Accounting 101 class by the end of this week. So I’ll be dividing up Accounting’s readings for this week up by about 10-12 pages a day. It’s the quickest way for me to get all of the information down-pack, and also gives me enough time to keep up with the blog as well (and other stuff).

As of 4:30, I just got out of my Computer and Information Science 101 class. It’s supposed to go till 4:50, but he’s a pretty laid-back guy and knows that we’ll be just fine for the first week without having to get out at 4:50. He said the rest of the semester will be quite a lot of work, but for the first week, he said he likes us to get into the grooves of things as we progress onward towards the end of the semester. My professor for that class is down-right hilarious! He can also be a bit strict, but he actually does try to keep things light-hearted for the most part. I can already tell that it’s going to be a really easy class to get an “A” or a “B” in. 

Well now I’m just taking a small break from reading from the Stats book in order to get this entry out of the way. I also download my free copy of Microsoft Office 2016 (via Microsoft 365) thanks to my Accounting professor. He gave us free copies in order for us to have the updated version of Microsoft Office, which was incredibly nice of him. I mean, I know some professors do it out of necessity, but I also know there are other professors who are really assholes and don’t care much for the student’s financial needs.

Anyways I’m going on a tangent now. I already played around with Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Note. The only real difference is the interface. With Microsoft Word though, I did have a problem with the software defaulting to “French” instead of “English (U.S.)”. I fixed the issue though, since I figured it had something to do with the “language” tab. 

As for today’s schedule, I have Statistics at 1:45-2:30 today (instead of 2:45. Every M/W is till 2:45, and every T/TH is till 2:30 for some reason). Then after that, I had my Computer and Information Science 101 class from 3:25 to 4:50 (this is also a hybrid class, so we meet every Tuesday and Thursday, but we also have class assignments and work to do over the Internet as well throughout the week which is due on specific dates).

I’ll end this post with another quoted segment from my book! The actual book, entitled Arkanim: Tales of the Enlightened Ones, has taken me roughly 14 years to write. This time around, the excerpt is from Chapter 3. I hope you enjoy reading it just as much as I enjoyed writing it!

The following is a work-in-progress, but I still hold and maintain all the rights for the work presented below. Thank you for your interest and understanding. Enjoy!:

             Excerpt from – Arkanim: Tales of the Enlightened Ones

           It was at this moment that the Dieties of Laruk, known as Ithal & Nethna, had fully come out of the white glowing hieroglyphs.

           Tozar knew very well that the situation had taken a terrible turn; he had to do something about it. And so Tozar Perth did do something.

           Gazing up towards the sky with his boiling rage, which had been building up deep within his very soul, Tozar roared out to Qiradel with provocation touched strongly in his voice. “Why don’t you show yourself! Are you such a coward that you cannot talk to us in person? What gives you the right to take away the lives of innocent people?”

           In a flash of light, the hooded woman appeared in front of Tozar and Dasca.

           Behind her were a tied up Narien Altri’hu and Baslore Urus’don.

           This woman’s vengeful dark green eyes gleamed with such intensity, that Tozar felt nearly blinded by such an overpowering presence.

           Her wicked smile was slowly beginning to grow further on her face as she eyed Tozar deviously. “Well old and broken man…here I am.”

           Everything that had been going on for the last couple of moments, had come to a complete stop now. The Deities of Laruk that had come out of the two hieroglyphs seemed to wait patiently by as this stunningly corrupted young woman continued to stare at Tozar with an indescribable intensity.

           Yet Tozar stood in place with his feet planted firmly on the ground and his haunting grey eyes staring straight into Qiradel’s verdant eyes with a newfound confidence that was beginning to foster deeply within his heart.

           Qiradel moved around Tozar as she analyzed the old man with subtlety. “It seems your days as a prominent soldier have truly come to an end, Tozar Perth. You are weak, a man with an aging body and an incomplete spirit. I know your past well, and I know the nightmares that haunt your every waking moment. You cannot run away from the inevitable. We all must die, just like your wife and child had perished away all those years ago. You should be thankful that you even got a chance to live a rather full and well-endowed life.”

           Though words never had any effect on Tozar Perth his whole life; this moment in time was different. This time, the words stung like salt water splashing in his eyes. He felt incredibly pained and ever more wounded then any physical strike could ever inflict upon him.

          But he did not sway. Not at a time like this.

          No, he was going to fight on for all of those lives he had failed long ago during the tumultuous time of The Revolting War. He was going to make things right in his life again.

Forever in Your Debt,

R.S. Noel
