I won an award I pretty much knew I was going to win.

It seems as though my brother will not be able to play full versions of my Xbox Live Arcade games because of the replacement 360. It locked him out of the rights to play them so now he has to log my profile in as the second player. I haven’t been able to test that theory because he lost his controller. Dumbass.

I planned on playing my 360 but the parents have gotten in the way and plan to watch that Mayan Mel Gibson movie. Damn them. Hopefully it isn’t that long.

My Xbox 360 is back baby!

It seems like I have a whole lot of things to do in such a short amount of time. I have two large study guides, an essay, and getting my notebook ready to turn in. It will take me a while to do any of them which means I will have to make good use of the time I have. It’s not going to be easy.

I think I need to play a game…

I find myself typing up an essay that seems to be the final for Virtual Enterprise. It is a bit difficult for me to reflect on the year considering I have forgotten a whole lot from the beginning. I’m thinking I’ll base it mostly off something profound, although I’ll probably have to edit out the good stuff to keep it safe for the teacher to read. At least I have until June 5th to do it. If I get it done early I’ll post it here.

That was sad. Poor guy. I’m going to fuck that Tiger up. Motherfucker.

I did some changing of categories (yes, again, no, I’m not fixing old posts). I changed Home Life to just Life. Home Life just sounded weird to begin with and didn’t cover outside stuff. I also created one called Family. Guess what it is for. Lastly I split Gaming up by system so now you will see Gaming and three separate sub-categories: PS2, Xbox 360, and PC.

Oh, and my 360 comes back Wednesday! YAY!

Today my mom cleaned up the family room. Finally. Oh, but it wasn’t just for us. No, of course not. Instead she was cleaning up because my grandparents were coming over for a few hours. While they were over I didn’t bother going down to see them and instead stayed in my room. Four or so hours later they started to leave and my mom wanted me to drive them back. I did such and when we got them back to their room my mom gave my grandpa a sandwich and then we left. After that we picked up my brother who was at a friend’s house and then went to Jack in the Box. The entire time I was driving I had my iPod hooked up and listened to it over the car stereo. Good way to keep anyone from engaging conversation with me as I didn’t feel like being bothered.

The best part is, it’s happening again tomorrow. Fuck.
