Today was the day of that CME thing. I woke up around 8:30am or so and talked to Ashlee. Then I headed downstairs and shot people in Call of Duty 4 before taking my shower and getting dressed. After getting set I head out to the main campus. I got there with minutes remaining before it starts and rush to the room. I get in, passing “B” on my way through the room to the back where I sat (the room was different from our normal one). The teacher does roll and includes her second class, which seemed to be larger than our’s. Everyone finished filling up the room and the teacher gives the instructions. We get handed the sheets and she then starts to read the directions. The topic we got was about “body image” or some shit. So I recheck the form and write down a few sentences to start as I skipped the whole plan and draft bullshit. It took me around twenty minutes to get the introduction done and then forty minutes for the first of two body paragraphs. Another forty minutes and I finished the second body paragraph and the conclusion. Since I was a bit early, and although people were leaving after finishing, I stayed to see when “B” would finish and leave so I attempted to look stuck for a little bit (which seemed to catch the teacher off guard). As soon as I saw “B” started to get ready I quickly packed my shit and headed to turn in the exam. Attempting to catch up I followed but failed as she went in the sacred place, the women’s bathroom. Women. So I headed to my car and headed home in the always fun traffic. After getting home, Bonnie (my old fat cat) rubbed her head on mine and licked my hair as I played some Call of Duty 4. After a few games I watched some recorded shows: Gangland, The Universe, and Shockwave. Good stuff all around.

There should be a Halo 3 game later tonight with the “Bakonites” which should be fun. Just need to adjust myself from my Call of Duty ass kicking style to pew pew Halo.

Considering the fact that I haven’t posted a decent sized post in quite some time (off the top of my head, I think the last time was the 3rd of this month), I’ve decided to sum up last week to give you a recap of one pretty random week.

Monday was the average slow day. Economics went by slow as fuck and afterwards I went home and stayed there until it was time head down to math. The math teacher decided to teach ahead so we learned new crap. After school I went home and relaxed until my Monday shows were on. Chuck was funny as always and Heroes was the usual. Slow start but an interesting ending.

Tuesday came around and I woke up at the normal time and everything to head down to English. I got there about fifteen minutes before the start of class so I did some homework in my car for ten minutes. Once it hit 9:25am I headed over to the class only to find out it was canceled for the day. That was the official start to the week of suck. So I headed back to my car and went home as I was not going to wait there for two hours until math. Fast-forward a bit and I was sitting in math class, bored as fuck, learning useless shit. After math I burned up time in the math lab rushing through the homework that was due the next day. When that was all said and done I read the Zombie Survival Guide since I never finished it. Once 3pm came around I headed towards my counseling class. Pretty average stuff. Lecture about the big project that I really need to start sometime soon. Then he told us at the end of class that Thursday class is off so we don’t have to come. After I got home I headed over to Andrew’s house to hang out. We discussed plans to head down to Bakersfield for the weekend to visit a certain friend. I told him I would have to pass this by my parents because they’re the fucking SS. He told me OK so I went home around 1 or 2am.

After getting a few hours of sleep I woke up and got my ass ready for my economics class. I haul ass to get there as usual and sit in my car as I wait. I noticed a few people from my class walking up and then turning back. I thought to myself “you’ve got to be fucking kidding me.” As I got to the door I noticed a sign saying that the class was canceled for the day. What the fuck? Seriously. So I got back home and wait for math. I wasn’t able to get a word in with my parents about our supposed trip during that time and headed off to math. We took the third math test which only took me about thirty minutes. Then I was off once again. Waste of a day. Once I got home I waited for the right moment to corner my mom about the trip. I told her we were going to go down to Bakersfield to see some friends for the weekend. Then she started asking me all these questions and said she was doing it because my dad would be doing the same thing when I would have to tell him. For the brief chat with my mom it seemed like I had permission from her, but I wasn’t prepared to talk to my dad. I called up Andrew and told him that I got some support for the trip but I was in danger of being denied. Then he told me that he hasn’t even asked his mom yet. “Fuck” popped into mind. After the call I just took refuge in my room for the rest of the night as my mom talked to my dad and such. She somehow convinced him that it would be fine and I’m old enough to do partly what I want or some such nonsense. As I waited and waited to hear back from Andrew I ended up taking a well deserved power nap. When I came to I saw him online and messaged him. He told me that it was a no-go. I wasn’t in the mood to tell my parents that so I just let them assume it was still on for the rest of the day.

Before school Thursday morning my mom walked by and I told her it was off for now. She said OK. I went on with my day and went to English where we got our essays back. I actually got a B- which is better than the bullshit C- I got last time. Then we went over some worksheet for the rest of the time. The blonde girl I’ve had my eyes on kept looking over at me since the teacher moved me up to “join the group.” That made my day seem better. Once that bullshit was over I burned up more time in the math lab but instead of math I started World War Z. Once I hit the time I was aiming for I booked it and left. Math class went by fairly smooth. I actually stayed awake for once. Surprise, surprise. Since the counseling class was canceled I headed home. When I got there my mom handed me Ace Combat 6 as I asked her to go get it (I somehow convinced her it would be part of the Christmas/Birthday present bullshit I have to deal with). I noticed my brother was playing Guitar Hero II on the 360. I told him he was an idiot because he already has it for the PS2 and Guitar Hero III is coming out on Tuesday. Dumbass. He also ended up getting Skate because it was his birthday. Whatever. I ended up having to wait until about 4pm to be able to actually play. Then I had to get off at 5pm so my dad could watch the World Series. Lame.

I woke up and had to sit through the bullshit of my mom watching her pre-recored crap before I could play more AC6. It took about three fucking hours. Around noon I took a break and did other things while my brother played his games. Then I got back on around 6pm. Sometime around there Andrew and Christina came by and wanted to borrow some of my DVDs to watch. He wanted to show her the Ghost in the Shell movies (the ones not related to Stand Alone Complex). I ended up going over to his house and watched both with them. There is an entire “subplot” if you will to this, but I don’t feel like going into detail about it as it is still ongoing. After all that I went home around 12am and messaged a certain someone.

Now for yesterday. Ace Combat 6 was finished in the morning and I started a continue campaign on Hard so I could unlock the superjet. Then I did other things to round out the day. I got a message at about 7pm that Andrew wanted a few of us to play Halo 3 after he did somethings, which shouldn’t take long. Our mutual friend and myself did a few warm-up rounds as we waited. After about an hour we messaged Andrew to see what was up but got no answer. Hours went by and we just continued on. Aggravation sounds pretty good to sum it all up. Then around midnight he popped on and made it look like nothing. I ended up playing on two or three more rounds and then got off for the night. I was Haloed out after 6 hours.

As for today, it’s been slow and nothing major has happened. All I really have to do today, or what is left of this day, is to finish up some work for this week. I’m waiting to hear if our economics test is going to be pushed off until the next week so I don’t have to worry with that “missing” class we had.

Also, I am awaiting for the “subplot” to come to an end.

Today didn’t end up being all work and no play. More like both. Although my homework is about 50% completed and I should finish it up tomorrow. In the meantime I need to refine my WALKING TANK custom game in Halo 3.

I didn’t have a post for you people last night because I was playing Halo 3 until one in the morning. Killing keeps you up.

Seriously.

Today had it’s share of boring moments. Economics class was somewhat interesting as we discussed unemployment and inflation to prepare ourselves for the test on Monday. I was glad when the class was over though. As I drove down to the main campus for math I got behind a car that was going a bit slow for my tastes, so I sped up and changed lanes. Doing what most do, I looked over to see what kind of person was driving. I was a bit shocked. It appeared to be my counsel teacher. I quickly pulled away and then got back in the lane. It looked like him, but I can’t be 100% sure. Even if it was him, I expected him to have a better car.

Anyway, once math started I already knew I would be bored out of my mind. Get ready. It was. I nodded off twenty minutes in. The fucking class seems to last forever. When it finally drew to a close I was relived and swiftly got to my car and got the hell out of there.

I got home and played a few games of Halo 3 (the reference of the post’s title comes from one of the games). Then I watched some show about the Berlin Wall. Not much else to say for now.

So I’m running around in Halo 3 trying to find skulls so I can unlock ninja-ish armor. Crazy.

Well my quest for COMPANY OF HEROES: OPPOSING FRONTS ended in trial and error. If the capital letters didn’t give it away, I didn’t get it. None of the stores I went to had it, but I did get something. The hype bit me in the ass and I found myself purchasing Halo 3. What have I done?

I’m home after a brief day at school, which actually felt slow and fast at the same time. Whatever. Now I have to manage my time, wisely. I need to finish up some Counsel 50 homework which should be fast but I’m to lazy to check how much I have. That should be all I have to do, I think. I’m not sure if I have English homework, but I guess I will find out tomorrow in class or by someone right before. The rest of my night is dedicated to training for COMPANY OF HEROES: OPPOSING FRONTS (no, I’m not going to stop capitalizing it until I have it, in my hands) and to watch the Heroes season premiere. If I do have some time left open I might do so math (yeah right) or study for the upcoming economics test (sure).

Tomorrow will be a good day if I get a certain something. It’s in big fucking letters. No, not Halo 3.

My weekend is over way too soon. Tomorrow is school, again. Monday is and will be another normal short day with economics in the morning and math in the afternoon. Monday night on the other hand is the return of Heroes which is awesome considering it has been a while since we last saw it. It should be interesting to see what has gone down. Tuesday will be energetic. I start it off with the lamefest called English followed by snoozefest, aka math, but after math, I mean snoozefest, I will be zooming over to some stores. Why will I be “zooming”? Well, a little game called COMPANY OF HEROES: OPPOSING FRONTS is finally out. Shame I have to sit through another class to get home and be able to play it. I might also try to get it before school but I doubt it. Wednesday, meh. Thursday will probably be another long, boring day. And then once Friday comes, my weekend will return again.

I have been feeling a bit under the weather for the last couple of days. Not sure if it is just allergies or what but it sucks. Hopefully I get better by next weekend.

On another note, I added a new graphics card to my computer. I picked up a GeForce 8500GT with 512MB of VRAM. Now, I do realize it is an entry level card for the 8000-series. In the history of owning a computer I have never gone higher. Why? I never have the money for the nice cards or the patience. But it works so I am not complaining. Plus it has capability for DirectX 10 whenever I decided to go Vista.

Lastly, if you are wondering why I haven’t said anything about Halo 3, well, I could really care less at the current moment. Eventually I’ll get it, but not now. Halo 2‘s ending pissed me off that much. I also don’t give a rat’s ass about multiplayer. I’m a single-player person.
