So last friday i came home from college pretty early to get a visa for the summer holidays, but apparently they only open on friday until like half past 12. And on the other days they also close at 4pm, always when i have college until 6pm. Now i have to inform myself if i can get them somehow over the postal service or ask my aunt to get me the papers i need from there, just unnecessary to get more stress these days. But well, what can i do.

So beginning of the first half year i was totally shocked by the amount of information and formulas we had to get into our head every lesson in linear algebra for quite some weeks and i literally did not understand a word of what was said at all. Analysis started exactly like that this summer term. i haven't understood the first topic yet, but we already continue with the next. It is a really stressful time getting this all solved out, especially when you do not come home before 7pm on a daily basis and then still have to do homework, there is no time to study all the things we had already. It looks like the weekends are about to get long.

So today is Thursday and that means that a new version came out. There was nothing new added to the game as in blocks, but two amazing new features came into the game. The smaller one is a bonus chest option, that let's you start the game off with a few more resources, which will be perfect to beginners like Yvonne in Single Player Games. The more exciting feature added though is the option to switch from Creative to Survival in Single Player. This was one of the things that really was missing for builders. Also all other Single Player Commands work, the only thing that still needs to be added with mods are the world edit options, which are quite important, but that is a smaller problem than installing Single Player Commands for every new version that comes out if you want to start a new building project.

So the headmaster of our university wants to take all mathematics and put us on the neighboring cities campus 15km away in a building that is not easily reachable far away from the mathematical library, far away from the rooms for all the subjects we need besides mathematics and vice versa for the other students and the justification for that is that they built a new facility in said city and do not know how else to use it. Not to mention that economics there are so full that they rented rooms in the local theater to fit all the students in, but no the mathematics from my city have to move in that new building right there at the red-light district.

So Yvonne is now asking me how to make a minecraft server. I do not know why she wants to open a server, but i am fine with that. Maybe she prepared a word already that she wants to show me, but i kind of doubt that. Probably she is just sick of her lag and wants me to suffer instead. x) But who knows, maybe i won't have lag on her server. Also Jack will probably have a better connection to her server, so we will see. Tonight i wanted to join a 1000 people public server, too. But no idea how that will end, normally i hate public server, so i won't stay there for long.

So today after university i wanted to play minecraft with Yvonne, but after we finished the puzzle map, we didn't really continue playing. Yvonne had log in problems, i wasn't sure what we could play, if survival or our peaceful map and what to build and so we did not really continue to play. Tomorrow however we both have time and i will wake up early again so we have enough time to finish another project or even start a complete new one. I haven't thought about that, yet.

Today the new semester in university began and that with two lectures in Analysis. The professor started with telling us that he never experienced students that made as bad results as we did and he was wondering why. After some wild theories about how school may have changed in the last years he started to get onto the maths topic and began his lecturing. In the 5 minute break he handed us three paper with the 3 different groups on them to go to for homework checking and studying. Normally i take the last group, but this time i took the early one, so i can be sure that i still had enough time afterwards to go to the Chinese course. He also handed us homework that is due to monday. Normally we get homework on mondays for the next week, but this time, because of the vacation he thought it would be cool to give us just three instead of four tasks, so that we won't get bored it seems. After the two lectures we went to the library and we logged online to write an e-mail to our new computer science teacher to make sure that we have the lessons on a good time of our schedule. After that i wanted to check what room i have to go for my Chinese lessons and i realised that i did not have them on mondays and wednesdays, but instead on tuesdays and thursdays. Now i have a little time problem on these days, since i have to get from one place of the city to the other in a short time. Leave one course 10 minutes earlier, take bus and still coming too late may be included. After realising that i will not have time on thursday, i ran to the bus to get home to go to the bank and sent money that was due this week. At home i then started on the homework for a few more hours. I didn't even finish one task yet and that task was the easiest one. I finally see, i am back at the stressful college life, you just have to love it. x)

So i finished the game with all characters which took a while. Then i chose Cain and finished the game two more times. After the sixth playthrough the game is supposed to be a lot harder, but the first time after i finished it a sixth time i managed to finish it a seventh time without dying, although i figured what was getting harder. The early levels seemed to be the same, but the very last level was filled with bosses and all of the bosses were twice in one level, which made it very hard. I still managed to beat it and am closing in on the tenth playthrough when the last boss will change and clear the way to the next and very last stage. I still haven't seen three of the unlockable bosses not counting the final boss, so there is still a lot more to discover in the game.

So i killed Mom in Isaac and soon had to play again to kill the real last boss in the game. Strangely after killing mom it only took me a few tries to get 2 levels further and kill the last boss. Not only did i kill the last boss, but i killed it with 3 different characters in only a matter of a few tries. Now with playing Isaac i just don't manage to get to the last boss again. I tried about 10 times now and i just die and that pretty early on. Often i die at mom, although she isn't really hard to beat at all. I think i may just have to get a bit better. At least the game isn't getting to easy for me, nor boring x)

With Yvonne i tried to play a co-op puzzle minecraft game. We already reached the 20th level or riddle. The first time we played i solved most of the riddles myself, but now she gets the drift and thinks more herself trying to figure out some things. Yvonne seems to dislike jumping puzzles and mazes. I have to admit that i hate jumping puzzles as much, but i like mazes in a way. And i like puzzles with pistons that are not clearly understandable at first. All in all it is a rather easy map, which is good considering we never played puzzle maps before.

So Vechs finally updated his old Ultra Hostile maps and i started playing my first one and it is indeed hostile. Many enemies and rare resources. I havn't found any iron yet and nearly all coal blocks are involved in traps. The worst thing however is the food situation. there is no water to make a farm and no animals are available, so the main food source is zombie flesh, which also takes a long time to gather and is always dangerous, because you have to eat it often to stay in healing mode. I found 4 wool already and died a few times. I also had to kill myself, because i was out of food and health before. It started with about 5 skeletons blocking my way and i had no single block to defend myself, so i had to trick them into shooting each other and hit them with my fist, which is not as easy as it sounds when it involves stairs.

So minecraft got updated today, but nothing was changed at all, because they released the same version unofficially last week for modders to prepare for the update that came today. I doubt they will release a new snapshot version tomorrow, because of this update though, which would annoy me quite a bit, because they planned to release the snapshots every week, but lately there are more and more weeks without them.

So I saw Nova playing a new game in his series of ultra hard games and it looked fun so i downloaded it myself and the game really is amazing. It is a very difficult and challenging game, because once you die you have to start over from the beginning again. The game is from the creators of Super Meat Boy, which was a fun game, but made me give up for good before really getting started too much, because i hated the controls of the game. The Binding of Isaac has an amazing atmosphere and a simple system of how the game works, yet it is randomly generated and there are lots of items, which makes every game different from the game before.

So today i was in university again. Only one other friend was there with me to study again after such a long break. We decided to study for linear algebra, which is the subject i studied last longest ago out of the two. I took the exam i passed and worked thru each task, it took me quite a while to remember a lot of things again, but then it came back, all the stuff came slowly back into my mind, but then there was Gram-Schmidt, something easy to use, but not too easy to remember and i really had to concentrate to remember how it works again. My head is now full of linear algebra, but it feels good to be back in that university stress again. After these boring vacation it feels great to be back in a daily routine again.

So on the minecraft server i was building a nice little home. i thought about exactly how i will build it the night before. At the end it looked a bit bigger than i thought it would, but it wasn't looking too bad at all. Because it is so tall it blocks the few over the little pong from two friends house and so they want me to destroy it again. It took quite a while to build the whole stuff and now i am sad that i have to tear it down again :/ And that one day after it was finished, well, well farewell my home, you will be missed.
