I just can't be with someone who constantly runs away from me.

It's actually really awkward having broken up and staying in the same house. :S ... He keeps hitting on me... :S I've tried to let him down gently and we went to a cat shelter this morning to consolidate our friendship, but he's still not very accepting or gracious of my decision.

How To Construct A Logical Argument Ch. 1, Section 1--the ideas within a paragraph should build on each other to support the overall topic or idea intended to be conveyed by the paragraph.

Considering revising: 3 or 4 sentences of his staying right next to you and being clingy and hitting on you followed by a singular sentence indicating that he perpetually runs away. :P

When he's not trying to escape, he's a great boyfriend! :P

It's okay though, we've rebonded over snuggling cats and there may yet be hope. :P

A warm and fuzzy kitty next to you does make life seem less lonely sometimes.  :cat:

Oh, man... don't even... pointers are annoying. I had a student last semester who did everything with pointers... and I was just like "You really didn't need to use pointers for a running sum..."

-feeling a little sick :X
-blaming the cheese scone...
-being really annoyed with Memrise... WHY YOU NO MOVE TO NEXT WORD AND THEN SKIP OVER IT??  :stars:
-not being sure what to do next with modelling :-\

I'm trying to teach myself C++, and I'm failing to grasp pointers, as well. :-\

My rule of thumb ended up being "If it belongs to me, like a property, no pointer. If it represents someone else, pointer." So I had a list of children, and the list was not a pointer but the list was of pointers to children. I also had a pointer to a parent. Everything else was not a pointer. Then you just have to be really careful with having mutator methods for all of your private variables because you can't access them from anywhere else...

...It all sounds very simple saying it out loud, but I was trying to make a structure work where EVERYTHING was a pointer. I'm just...4pm. Haven't slept. So tired. So caffeinated. So out of it.

yeah... sounds like you're reaching that point where you're wondering about the divergence of pointers in your code and oh... oh... omg... WHY DOES THIS BIT HAVE A CURL? and the pointers are pointing at pointers pointing at the pointers and... basically, you're approaching the "somebody went an opened the Ark of the Covenant" bit of computer programming. :P

I suggest sleep and orange juice (or some manner of sports drink). :yes: ...and possibly a conversation with your TA if the pointers don't stop either spinning or talking to you. :yes:

- Rewriting chapter 7 of KQ5. Now it's closer to my original plan! What was I thinking earlier? I don't know.

- Watching more Leisure Suit Larry. Onto 3 now. Poor Larry, lost your job, lost your wife (and she seemed like a legitimately sweet girl in 2). Also, I love this line: You may know the word "getsoap" but it's beyond Al Lowe's vocabulary!

- Waiting for Delling to reply to my latest message.

- cooking my dinner.

- Reading a recap of Twilight.

- Reading about Druids, The Morrigan, Banshees, and Irish mythology in general. Wow! You guys certainly did your research on this for episode 3!

Don't. Read Chris vs. Twilight instead. It's better. :yes:
