2nd post

I didn’t get much studying done today.  I was absolutely dead on my feet all day.  I got home at 6 and promptly fell asleep.  I woke up at midnight.  Now I need to get some work done.  So I went ahead and ordered a A+ Certification cram book off Amazon.  It should be here in 3 to 5 days.  The main reason that I got it was because it has study questions that the comments said were really good.  I think that’s what I need.  I need some examples of what the questions will be like.
In semi-unrelated news, my headphones are almost broken.  It would really fucking blow if they stopped working.  It is of course my fault.  I was trying to plug them back into my speakers when I woke up.  I had been listening to some relaxing music on my speakers while sleeping.  Anyway, when I was plugging my headphones back in it was dark and I couldn’t really see what I was doing.  I was just going by feel and kind of forced the headphone jack in crooked.  This bent the jack.  Now the receiver doesn’t read the left audio ring very well.  I have it worknig now, but if it jiggles or moves at all my left phone goes silent.  What I’m really worried about though is the possibility of the jack breaking.  It would be a bitch to fix it, and if it broke off in the speaker I would be totally fucked.  The headphones are $50 Creative Fatal1ty gaming headphones.  They are pretty bitchin and I’d hate to have them break within a year of getting them.
The next level or circle of Dante’s Inferno is Lust.  I need to link that to a computer related thing, preferably a part.  I could maybe do some kind of lust equals porn thing and porn will get you malware, but I and many others no how to watch without getting shit on your computer.  

I can’t focus worth shit right  now.  I just got out of my film studies class’s film viewing.  We watched Casablanca.  I’ve never seen it before.  Let me re-phrase that.  I don’t want to erase and go back.  I had never seen it before.  That was the first time I’d seen it.  One of those works I think.  Anyway, wow that was a pretty fucking good movie.    I can’t believe I’d never seen it before.  So the point is that I’m out of it right now.  I’m still going over the film in my head and not able to focus.  I hope that if I just write through it I’ll settle down a bit.  The important thing is to keep writing.
On the A+ front, I ordered a study book last night.  I think I already mentioned doing that.  I’ve actually got to purchase and sign up for the test.    You purchase a voucher on the CompTIA website.  There are two parts to the current test.  I think it’s practical and hand on.  I’m not one hundred percent on the names.  I’ll check later.  
I really just want to leave class now.  I didn’t bring my dvorak keyboard so I’m stuck with the qwerty keyboard in the room.  Because of his, my typing is a bit slow.  There’s a girl from the Daily News here taking pictures.  It looks like the English department did a good job replacing Barbara Bogue.  She would call or email the school paper about stuff her class was doing too.  Anyway, Cathy Day isn’t here.  She had someone else basically sub.  I don’t know if he’s still here.  If not, I could basically leave and go back to my room with my dvorak keyboard.  I can still use qwerty, but dvorak is a more efficient keyboard layout and I really notice a difference in speed between the two.  The sound of a camera clicking is strangely relaxing.
Back to computer stuff.  The test is run through one of two testing services.  The one that is at Ball State in Pearson Vue.  My guess is that they are here like once a week or something.  The test will be held up on the third floor of Lucina Hall.  It’s like the Testing Center or something.  I don’t remember the exact name.  They have a bunch of different types of exams that you can take there.  
So when I purchase my two test vouchers, one for each part, they will be good for like three months or something.  I just have to take the test before they expire.  Apparently I need to check the times for the test on Pearson Vue’s website and maybe sign up or maybe just show up at that time.  I give them my voucher(s) and take the test.  So, I need to buy the vouchers.  I think I’ll do that when I get home.
