Weird Taste in Music

Posted by mikenopolis on February 24, 2008

I have an XM radio in my car and I’m usually tuned to the 20on20 station where the top 20 hits are played over and over and over again. I found two songs I really liked:

1.) Paramore – Misery Business

2.) Taylor Swift – Teardrops on my Guitar

I realized that my taste in music really changed in the last 4 years. I’m really into checking up on everything I come upon on Wikipedia, the band Paramore (Rock) and Taylor Swift (Country) are from Tennessee! It’s funny how many musical talents are from that state! I wish Rap and Hip-Hop will get better…when the song is actually a life story, what we have now are songs with made up words, a songs about how big their rims are or how nice their “chains” are, soooooo tired of this.

If you don’t live in Southern California, you are not living. I remember when I was young, I would still be shoveling snow from the driveway back in Denver, Colorado…just look at this, Beside from a little rain last week, this is what it looks like…yes those are people sunbathing at the pool in February!

Accounting Class

Posted by mikenopolis on February 14, 2008

I’ve been taking an accounting class at a local community college for fun because I hate driving through traffic to get from work in Irvine to home is LA. Last night I took the second test, it had 50 multiple choice questions and 6 written “workout” calculations, journalizing problems. Majority of the class took more than the FULL time (2 hrs.) to finish the test. We started about 6:45pm which is already 15 minutes extra since the class begins at 7:00pm, at 8:50 we were told that he would be nice enough to let us have an extra 15 minutes, so the actual time allowed went from 2 hours to 2 hours & 30 minutes!!!

The reason I’m ranting is that there were A LOT more question and things to work out in this test than the last one…I think this professor should take a class in time management, either make the test easier or shorter, or allow more time to begin with, not make the students freak out watching the time go by!!!!
