My 5 tests

Last week was crap for me. Wednesday I had Revelation and Prophets tests back to back. Thursday I had SdA Church history and Intro to Philosophy pretty much back to back. Then on Friday I had my Human Resource Management test. My tests on Wednesday and Friday also had short assignments due as well. Turns out though that my religion classes didn't go as badly as I thought. 100% (with bonus) in Rev, 94% in Pro, and 90% in SdA Church Hist. Philosophy is going to be a little different. I am currently in Phil. class trying to understand the loops of it.
When 1 student in class always has a rebuttal to the lecture really annoys me. Yes philosophy is a class that deals with having an open mind and questioning things but please let the teacher lecture so we can understand the book. Okay thats all I have to say about that.

Fun things to look up

Krissy and I have been doing some looking at pretties, as April would say. We both really like a stone called Alexandrite. It is a pretty cool stone cause it changes color in different light, incandescent or natural. Sadly it is very very pricey and fairly rare. Thankfully there is a synthetic version that is less expensive but they can't make the stone change colors like the natural. Synthetic Alexandrite still shows up different colors but not the extreme purple to green change. Anyways thats all the excitement that happened over break.

From my mother

I have always loved this forward but never seem to have it handy. My mom sent it to me earlier this week or late last week. I just wanted to post it to spread the love of our Frigid Northern States. Fitting since North Dakota, Minnesota, and Wisconsin have been in the negative double digits (-22 in Fargo this morning, -17 in Jamestown) this past couple weeks. Nancy Petta's dad had the pipes under their toilet freeze this week. They are in the basement. Anyways without further ado "We're a hearty bunch"

Phone Pass code

A few months ago, say 8, someone changed the pass code for the camera on my phone. Since then I tried all the combinations I could think that someone would change it to without knowing who changed it. I posted My Space Bulletins, I think I even blogged about it, all to no avail. Well I just all the manuals for my phone from my sister. After looking through them all, I still couldn't find how to change the pass code or turn off the pass code option for my phone. Even if I knew how to take off that option I couldn't get to it cause I didn't know the pass code. It was such a vicious cycle. Finally I decided to Google my problem. It seems that other people have the same problem, many are jealous girlfriends or cheated-on wifes, so there was a whole slew of information online about it. Turns out that you can do a nifty pound number number number number star thing. After doing this little code I find out whomever changed my pass coded changed it to the last 4 digits of my phone number. Apparently they thought I would be able to figure it out. Well I hadn't and whoever you are out there that lied to me by not telling me that you changed my number, I'll be watching you.
