It’s the weekend before my midterm is due and I feel like crap. Stuffed nose, sore throat, headache, fever, a few aches and pain. It fucking sucks. I popped some meds earlier and continued to work on the midterm. I am pretty sure it is done but I may tweak it a bit as Tuesday gets closer. There isn’t much else I can write for it so I am semi happy with it. My computer science teacher thought it would be an awesome idea to make the last lab of the year due Wednesday so I get to make a four page website. I’ll probably end up doing that Tuesday night.

In other news I have been playing Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars lately. I managed to beat the GDI campaign so far (this is my first time doing the campaigns in the game even though I have had it for a while now). After working on the midterm I started the Nod campaign. Should be interesting.

And as for Grand Theft Auto IV, well I won’t be getting it until Wednesday or Thursday as I could only afford 2-day shipping from Gamestop and the fact I am saving gas by not going to the store. It also lets me have time to do the website as I would end up playing the game all day and forget. Although I am hoping there are no big assignments next weekend as I will be playing all damn day once it arrives. It is going to own so hard.

I can’t believe it has been two years since I switched over to WordPress. Doesn’t seem like that long ago. Times have changed quite a bit since this time last year. Many changes to myself and the people around me, including some new additions.

Since this time last year I have graduated from high school and ventured off to college. A big change in my everyday life. Although with this change came more responsibilities and the biggest change, loss of old friends. There are a bunch of people I do not see anymore due to going to college or moving in general. It was pretty depressing once you get to thinking about it. You spend much of your time with them in school all those years only to have them go away. College brought a few new ones along the way, although not as strong as some of the high school ones. I have also met new people through other ways. Namely Tammi, Carter, and Ashlee. Even that crazy Canadian. All good pals with them. Last year I also had to deal with the death of my grandfather but as time went on I adjusted to the change, as hard as it was. Days, weeks, months, it all came and went. Now it is 2008. It’s pretty crazy.

Considering I’ve written the epic end of the year post just three months ago my memory juices are a bit low so I won’t be picking my top ten posts of the last year. Instead you get to see pretty stats and some search results that make me feel like the FBI will pound on my door in the near future.

Thanks you fucking strange internet people. Go the fuck outside.

I’m blazing through the Dawn of War: Soulstorm campaign, literally. The Sisters of Battle have slaughtered the Space Marines, Imperial Guard, and the Orks. Those left will tremble with fear as I head towards them. The next on my list to annihilate are the Tau. Those fuckers are pissing me off and I want to steal their big space gun. Then it will be either the Eldar, Dark Eldar, Chaos, or Necrons. Should be interesting.

In school news, I have an essay, some math, and a computer science lab to do this weekend. My bullshit skills are preparing themselves.

Yesterday I went out with my parents to various car shops looking for find out who is the cheapest when it comes to getting some new tires. Back when I got my oil change (about a month ago) they told us that my front tires were dangerously low but my parents gave me the “whatever” look and decided to let me drive for a month before giving a shit. So we checked out a handful of places and decided on Les Schwab. We dropped the car off and went to Best Buy. At Best Buy I picked up Burnout Paradise and then walked over to Borders to waste time. After about two hours or so they called us to pick up the car. When we did they gave us a free box of various beef products which was pretty cool. I drove the car home and popped in Burnout.

The new Burnout is very different from the old ones. I’m still trying to get used to the “pick your own route” deal and making sure I turn on the right street going 150+MPH. Not the easiest thing to do. After about an hour or so of playing I hopped on Lego Star Wars to play with Tammi in Episode 1. The connection was off and on at first and then during the second to last level we encountered a pretty mean glitch that wouldn’t let us beat it so we had to start over. Once done with that level we got to the last of Episode 1. Here we ran into something worse. With the added lag and stuff it was hard to use our Force powers on Darth Maul during the battle. This led to a little frustration but we managed to make it through. Tammi and myself plan to continue our adventure later today.

As for today, I woke up and watched last night’s Stargate Atlantis which was really good and then loaded up Burnout. I unlocked some new cars and got a new license which made me happy. Right now I am downloading Service Pack 1 for Vista on my laptop. Hopefully it will improve performance and reduce some nagging load times. Don’t need any new problems. Other than that I expect an average day.

Another week of school. Great. The good thing is that it is only four days, then a four day weekend, then another four day week. Thank you dead preisdents.

This morning I played some Grand Theft Auto: SA and the Xbox Live Arcade game Puzzle Quest which is pretty neat. I need to get my chick to a higher level as well as learn to solve the puzzles better. Then it came time to leave. The drive was pretty smooth. Only a little traffic near the school but managed to get there a little early. I drive fast. So what.

In Computer Science we started to mess with Visual Basic. Seems pretty simple for now. I’m sure it will get harder. I also have four hours of lab to make up but without knowing how to set it up right (the teacher hasn’t told us yet) I cannot do them. After Wednesday’s class I plan to get at least two hours done this week and then do the other two plus one more (as next week is week five). Hopefully that will balance it out.

During my break I helped Sable out in the math lab burning some extra hours away so I can sidetrack a bit and do the Computer Science lab this week and next week. Surprisingly I managed to stay awake today. I wanted to leave early but she pulled out a last minute activity for us to do. My little group managed to get most of it done extra for one problem we all forgot to do. Now I just have to prepare myself for the test Wednesday.

Tomorrow is my favorite short day. No, not because it is English. I don’t like the class. I only like the day because it is short. Anyway, I get my essay back tomorrow which I am hoping I did well on. I went over the page limit he wanted but I hope it helps me out in the long run. We’ll see. Hopefully class goes by quick. Then it will be back home to Grand Theft Auto.

This morning was a slow start to my day. I was slow to get out of bed and do the reading for today’s class. I got out of the house with enough time to get down to the campus without running to class. During English some of the other students read off their short essays to the teacher. I pretty much zoned myself out for a bit. After that we discussed a short story by George Orwell. We managed to get half of it done before the class ended, although we have to do some of it for homework. Lame. The teacher also admitted what I have been suspecting. He is in fact Canadian. I fucking knew it. I headed home to an empty house.

The first thing I did when I got in was check some sites and my e-mail. I ate some lunch while watching TV, mainly part of an X-Files episode. Played a little Battlefield 2 and then I started to feel tired and bored so I fell on the bed and stayed there until my mom came home. A little later on and I got an IM from Tammi and she was talking about her troubles with organizing her music collection. This inspired me to do the same. I switched around some folders and organized albums under the artist’s main folder. This should help my new media player see my music easier. After sorting my music I loaded up Songbird which I have been playing with (it is still in beta). Songbird is from the same people who created Firefox and Thunderbird so I know it will kick more ass as time goes on. A few minutes and all my music was set. All it needs for me to be even happier with it is the Last.fm plugin. You won’t be seeing any updates on it until one comes out, although you still might see updates from my iPod when I plug it in to iTunes (I need to remake my playlists due to my organizing efforts, stupid Apple).

As for now I am just relaxing for the night talking with Tammi and dreading math tomorrow. I’m sure it will suck like always.

I woke up and played some Battlefield 1942 after trying to stay awake to watch this thing on the History Channel about oil but I was too damn sleepy. I headed off to school for my computer science class. I swear, the people in the class are fucking retarded and shouldn’t be allowed to take the class. “What is the chip?” “How do I copy this file?” “How do I print?” FOR FUCK SAKES, GET OUT OF THE CLASS! I seriously hope the higher classes have less dumb fucks. During the break I went to the math lab and helped out Sable. Then we headed to class where I slept through another lecture. The teacher is like a fucking drone. Talking in monotone on and on and on. Fuck me. Once school was out I headed home and played some more ’42, then I jacked my brother’s Battlefield 2 and installed it.

Yep, shit gonna be shot real good.

Yesterday was the first day of the new semester. I finally got a decent night of sleep and woke up the next morning and watched Life After People. It was pretty interesting. Around 8:45am I got my hot chocolate and headed out the door. The rain was pounding during my drive down to the campus. Once I arrived I got out and began searching for my new English class. I found it and found a nice seat in the back. The other students poured in one-by-one and I made sure to see if there was anyone I knew. Unlucky for me, there isn’t one person I know. There are two I will have to keep my eye on though. As for the class itself, the teacher seems okay. We are going to be learning some easy stuff aside from having to do an absurd amount of essays. Oh, and poetry. Meh. I also believe that the teacher might be Canadian or something. It sounded like the accent was trying to pop out during the end of class. We’ll have to see about that. The drive home (only class of the day) was pretty shitty. Rain pouring mixed with bad visibility for the lose.

Today sleep was okay. I did wake up before my alarm though which kind of pissed me off. Whatever. I stayed in bed for some time while checking some sites. This time the ride down was fine and my first class was Computer Science. Luckily for me I know one of the guys in there so I got a seat near him. The teacher explained what we would be doing. The first few weeks are total bullshit in my eyes. Basic computer knowledge (aka: this is how you open  a folder, this is how you copy a file, etc). For fuck’s sakes. This is an introduction to programming class and they are starting it like this!? People shouldn’t be in the class if they don’t know how to use a computer. It’s retarded. After my initial reaction the rest was fine. The programming stuff looks fun. The only other gripe is having a lab. I have to be in there for the same amount of time as the math lab. Ugh. 32 total bullshit hours as I call them. During my break I hung out with a few people and found out one of them was in my math class. We headed over when it was time and I found myself amazed that my math class wasn’t in the math building. Instead it is in a portable across the campus. Lame. The room is pretty fucking trashy and it stinks. The teacher seems ok but I dozed off as usual during her lecture. I hate math. Oh and apparently the problems in the book she gives us are for practice and don’t need to be done, at all, but we still have worksheets for homework. What am I going to use the solutions manual for? Damn it.

Tomorrow is English again. We’ll see how that goes.

The last few days have been a bit odd. It kind of fits I guess since my vacation is coming to an end. Since the 360 is broken and shipped off I have mainly been on the PC doing all kinds of things.

Friday I woke up and wasted as much time as possible so Cloverfield would come faster. At about 10:15am I headed out to the theater to meet up with Andrew. We were going to the 11am showing (first of the day) to beat the crowds, mainly high school kids who all had finals which meant they would be getting our around 12 and 1pm. When I got there there were only a few cars in the parking lot. I waited for Andrew to show up and then we went in and got seats in the back row. While we were waiting we talked about Call of Duty 4. Once the previews started the first one reminded me of Hellboy. I turned to Andrew and told him that the second one was coming out later this year. I turned back to the screen and then saw Hellboy on the screen and was like “motherfucker.” It was the Hellboy 2 trailer. During the second trailer, for the movie 21, I chomped down on a gummy worm and chipped a tiny piece of my front right tooth. Nothing major but it still pissed me off. I plan to have the dentist check it out when I go the next time (whenever that is). Moving back to the movie, it was awesome. Plain and simple on of the coolest and creative movies I have seen. From start to finish it kept me engaged. Andrew seemed to get freaked at some parts with his “Holy shit” and “What the fuck” moments. I just laughed in my head. After the movie I headed home and dicked around on the computer. UPS dropped off the coffin for the Xbox 360 so I packed it up and dropped it off at the UPS store were the truck came just as I was leaving. I went home and then watched Stargate Atlantis.

I woke up Saturday morning around the same time as the day before. This time I was taking my brother to see Cloverfield. We headed over again, beating the crowds. Same trailers, same seats. My brother was a little less dramatic as Andrew but it was close. During the movie he told me that I can die in a fire and that he plans to get the DVD. I told him that we’ll see about it. After the movie I got home to an empty house. The parents were out and about and a little later my brother headed off to a friends house. I proceeded to do the usual internet things when I got a message from a Shacker to play Team Fortress 2. I never played it online before so I was a bit hesitant. I got the server info and jumped in. I chose the Pyro first to give it a shot. Turns out I suck with that class so I went Soldier. I got some good kills and the class seems to work with me. I got better as the day progressed and I made sure to tell Tammi that if I get obsessed with it she has to either beat me senseless or kill me. I do not want to get sucked in a game with school around the corner. After a few hours of that I IMed for the rest of the night.

This morning I fired up Team Fortress 2 and played a few rounds. Once I was done with that I watched Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Around 3:30pm I headed downstairs to watch the NFC Championship game. I was rooting for the Packers but the stupid Giants kicker saved his career in overtime. Fucker. After the game I reinstalled Oblivion but left out the mods this time (at least until I find a good, stable one so I don’t have to do my multi-disk reinstall being as I don’t have the one DVD GOTY pack). Now I’m just IMing and Shacking.

Tomorrow is my last day of vacation, sadly. I will be preparing for school (mainly English since it will be the only class I go to on Tuesday). Got to pack the car with my books, prepare binders, and get the parking pass in the glove box. I’ll probably also be playing Oblivion and Team Fortress 2. Other than that I don’t know. Got to return to the mindset of school so I don’t fall asleep in class like last semester. Like that will work.

The day started normally this morning until about 10am when the power suddenly turned off. It surged about three times before going away completely. Bored out of my mind I took a nap for about 45 minutes or so. The power eventually came on a little before 12pm. Once everything was back to normal I went ahead with my day. Since my computer was busy backing up files to my external drive I decided to watch a DVD. I threw in The Kingdom which has been begging for my attention. Good movie. The last thirty minutes were pretty thrilling. After the movie I went up to check on the status of the backup and it still wasn’t done, so I went back down and tossed in Battlestar Galactica: Razor because I never got around to watching the unrated DVD version. The scenes left out of the TV version were pretty neat and set up some cool background information on a few characters. Once that was over my backup was pretty much done. I went on with my day until dinner where we headed our for Mexican food. Back at home I watched some stuff on the National Geographic Channel (or what they are now calling it, NatGeo). Now I’m the usual stuff before bed.

Exciting.
