Making a post without ulterior motives

[FF7] Girl's night out
Making a post without ulterior motives. Sad to say, it is a feat above my skill level, but just this once, I will do it. For all of you. Because I love you thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis much!

Winter semester finally ended and I got my grades back. Thankfully, even in the classes I thought I did poorly in, I got As! I don't especially understand the A I got in my web design class, but perhaps the instructor was feeling lax after being exposed to the average skill level in my class? I'm not saying this to be stuck up, either (you guys know I'm not confident in my design skills), but when you get classmates who design their final projects in PowerPoint.. well, you get the idea. As usual I felt let down, because I always enroll in these classes, hoping that at least one instructor will give me constructive criticism and tell me how to improve, but in the end everyone acts all impressed. And it's frustrating, really frustrating! Because I don't think I'm good, and I want to improve, but how am I supposed to do that when my skill level is above casual designers but no where near professional? Argh!

But back to the other classes- I was only worried about one, my computer programming II class. It'd been two years since I took the first part of the class, so when I went in my knowledge was pretty rusty. It turns out that the instructor's criteria for flowcharts (and class behavior even) have changed in the past two years, so I really had a hard time grasping the assignments. In the end, I ran out of time despite averaging two hours of sleep a night during finals week, and half my assignments went in without flowcharts. Even so, I ended up with a C+! Now, normally I hate getting anything below a B (even Bs irk me), but after worrying that I was on a failing path, it was such a relief. I'll still be retaking it, but for now, that grade was enough to tide me over. I just hate comparing myself to Mom (although I can't help it). Her transcripts are almost all As, all the way up to the Master's level. I feel like I've let her down so badly ;_; But enough of that depressing talk!

Also, kitare tagged me with Nagisa Kaworu almost a freaking month ago (I'm sorry ;_;) for a character meme, so here I go!
1. Do you like this character?
I don't dislike Kaworu at all, I'll start by saying that. But he does make me sort of uncomfortable in a way, mainly because you can never tell what he's thinking. Are there ulterior motives to his Shinji love fest? So more than liking, I guess you could say he intrigues me.

2. What name/s do you call this character?
I'm no good with nicknames! I always call him Kaworu, just because his name is so short, he doesn't need me pulling an Asuka,who I swear to God calls him homo in a drama CD.

3. What image-color do you associate with this character?
I could be a tard here and say blue, but honestly it's white and red for me. Mainly because of his physical appearance, but also because of his personality- he really has a great disposition, but the guy's true form is unfortunate.

4. What image-song do you associate with this character?
Oh god, I suck at image song questions laksf

5. What blood-type do you think this character is?
I see Kaworu as an O, in part because he has the good personality of an O (to Shinji at least), but he seems to alienate others a bit.

6. Of all of the titles that this character appears in, what character do you like to put this character with?
Don't shoot me for saying this! Aside from the obvious Shinji (who had better chemistry with Kaworu than the rest of the girls, amusingly enough), I like pairing him with Rei. While she's really sort of a shell, personality wise, it's easy to see the similarities between the two. Datenroku's kind of tainted me in this regard, too, because I keep getting the impression that Kaworu is someone Rei would really look up to.

7. What would you want to say to this character?
lol no

8. What do you want to do with this character?
I want to give the guy a cookie. Or something. Actually, I just blew off this question, sorry ;_;
9. Please choose 5 friends with your choice of character.
rebmastu Yamamoto Anise (<3)
crisuskeer Kinomoto Sakura(CCS ver)
kyoy Jack van Burace!
araeli Hattori Heiji (heijiheijiheijiheiji)
syusaki Tenjou Mitsuru (lolololol)

Okay, I'm really terrible at that sort of thing. I hope it didn't make you angry, kitare OTL I'm really only familiar with Kaworu through the anime and spinoffs, even though most of his characterization comes from the manga...

Also, I tried tagging people who have been posting to their own journals lately and have commented a lot for me in the past... and, well, if anyone else wants me to give them one then just say so in the comments! I was going to give you one, kitare, but then I realized you've done the damn thing twice already x3

Now this is getting way too long! I'm heading back to Turtle Paradise's forum (we have a forum now, awesome, huh?) and continue spamming. It's crazy active for having been made public, oh, I don't know, YESTERDAY? So a bunch of people register and freak with us please =3

Also, I need to stop making icons that I'll never post anywhere. I mean omgalsdfj Well it's not like anyone likes them but me xD

oh man i totally understand about the transcript. here our marking guide is like:

Pass: 50-64
Credit: 65-74
Distinction: 75-84
High Distinction: 85+

and it's reallllly hard to get a distinction, let alone a HD. so i set myself the goal of distinctions but usually get high credits, right? and a couple of times i've got 64 (pass) which is so freaking close to a credit and it's HORRIBLE. i feel like i've tarnished my transcript by having passes on it amongst CR/D/HDs. ugh. :[ it's the perfectionist in me. i'd retake the classes but i don't have the money/time for that. :/

Oh man, I thought you were MIA from LJ since you hadn't posted in so long, I totally would have tagged you otherwise xD

That grading system sounds really confusing. I go to a shit college though, so of course ours isn't good enough to be complicated *shakes fist* Now that I think about it, retaking these classes of mine would probably be a bad idea, too... Argh. School. It, it... Oh man.

oh it's cool! i wouldn't have the time now, anyway. i'm so busy with uni work; it's almost the end of the semester here. :P

it was at first, but now it's easy to understand. basically if you got 80s-90s in highschool you'll get 70s-80s at my uni, if you're lucky. most people are happy with passing because it's the baseline you need to get (well, obviously) but everyone tends to get credits if they put effort in. i just want the highest i can get. :P my highest ever mark was 88 (HD), and i think i'm pretty intelligent (haha i sound conceited but anyway) so i guess that's one way to gauge the grading system.

ya, school sucks :[

xD thanks for doing the meme! I like your #1, it would even work with the manga characterization.
