Okay, Ravy, you're going to want to start by incorporating a certain cardio session - do one minute slow, two minutes as fast as you can go, for about 12 minutes. I'd advise that you run or at least jog every day at least an hour, and also incorporate light, maybe thirty minutes of weight training.

Do as much of that as you can

I'll take that under advisement.  With finals coming up in a few weeks, shit's kinda gearing up in school, so my focus is largely there, as of now.  Also...well, let's just say my stamina ain't what it used to be, lol.  But, if nothing else, I got a goal towards which I can aspire, so thankee.

Got my new tablet to replace my old buddy.  Now to log back in to all my shit!  Whee.

[ETA]

Also, got my tablet cover, yesterday!  Comes with a little Bluetooth keyboard, too.  Its a little cramped for someone with somewhat larger hands like myself, but I do like being able to actually type things longer than a couple of sentences whilst browsing on my tablet.  Don't care what anyone says, physical keyboards will ALWAYS be the best way to type.

In less than 10 minutes, I got a web API working on my tablet using Flask.  Compare that to all the hell I went thru with Node.js to just get the fucker to work (read: several weeks), and I can see why people had an easy time with previous iteations of my database class.  Flask-API is beautiful, simple, and very easy to use.  Why in the name of the Maker's left testicle we were forced to use something as hateful Node.js and nginx is beyond me.  This teaches the fundamentals of web APIs (which, I'll grant ya, are important in this day and age) in a way that is not only easy on the eyes, but easy to see exactly what's going on...easier to mentally digest.

Just goes to show that following moronic trends does not mean that you'll be teaching your students fundamental concepts any better.  In fact, it actively stymied many of my classmates, because they had to figure out a tonne of esoteric issues (with completely unhelpful error messages, to boot) just to get the damned Node.js crap to work properly.

Guess we can't have students learn the fundamentals without fucking them over, somehow.

For better or worse, this godforsaken semester is over.  At least it felt quick...that's about its only saving grace.

My semester is just about over. My English teacher told me the only thing I need to change in my English Final Essay is the date - she outright asked if I was secretly some kind of AP Student who studied college english in middle school.

Are you in community college or university?  The former tends to expect people to be barely literate, in my experience, so being able to write a cogent sentence means you're a shoe-in for an A unless you just don't put in the (admittedly minimal) work.
