I was finally active for once this weekend. Yesterday, not so much. All I did was watch TV and shoot people in Call of Duty 4 on the new maps and finally got the .50 cal. So fucking awesome. I love the sound it makes. I also somehow managed to pick up Command & Conquer 3: Kane’s Wrath. The epic units are pretty cool. The AI is still an asshole though.

As for today, I woke up and played some Kane’s Wrath and then did a test drive of my shiny new .50 cal in Call of Duty 4. I killed eight people the first time I used it. I am in love with it. At around 11am or so I headed out to start washing my car and my dad’s. I originally agreed to only do two but somehow I got suckered into doing three with annoyed me. I got it done after an hour or two. Once that was over I played a little more C&C3 and later on I downloaded Shadowbane to play with the Shackers. Not sure what to make of it just yet but I guess time will tell. At least it is free to play.

Most of the time I laugh at news stories about people who are addicted to things that don’t even exist. Like the countless Chinese or Korean people who play Starcraft or World of Warcraft until they die. Today I realized that I myself have a web addiction, or so it seems.

Today started as a regular day with me checking our “Shackariam” IRC. Dubbed so to elude spies from figuring out what we are planning on a web based game. Anyway, I go check the Shack (Shacknews) and I load up the latest chatty. After doing so I go back to the IRC for a little bit. Everything is good and dandy. After my shower I come back to load the Shack again only to find the website not responding. Puzzled I quickly go to the IRC to dispel the thought of it being just me. It seems that the site is down for everyone. The usual jokes come up as I expected. I get into the mindset that all should be well after class.

After class I come home and the site is still down. Everyone in the IRC by now is aware and waits to for it to come back. I get bored because I go there to entertain myself and chat but since I can’t I have nothing to do. Hours later I find myself napping. Now I am tired as hell, headache included, and the Shack is still not back. This is the longest downtime since the great server crash of years past that I can remember, although Tammi tells me there was one last summer but the memory eludes me.

I pray that all is well tomorrow. I need my Shack.

Not much to talk about today. Just that I killed a guy with a plane by ramming him and surviving the impact to kill another. That’s hardcore.

2007 was a crazy year. Many things have happened and each moment had some form of meaning. From the surprises to the failures, it has been one hell of a year. So many new things in what seemed as such little time. Transitioning from a high school student to an adult in college. With so many things it is hard to choose a single place to begin, so lets look back and remember the past year.

Note: It is not my intention to offend anyone. I am just giving the details of events from my point of view or from what I remember.

I have no clue where today went. Seriously. It just happened.

Last night was epic. Those certain moments left me speechless and I was happily surprised. But that’s not something I’m going to talk about. We’re talking about today, so here it is.

This morning my plan was to wake up and finish up the math homework. Didn’t go quite as planned as I stayed in bed until 8am. Then I got up and took a shower to get ready. Left the house at 8:55am and headed down to the campus. English was boring enough to send me to sleep within minutes of the teacher opening her mouth. Surprisingly I was only asked upon once to answer a question and when the class ended two of the other people in the class commented about me sleeping and were jealous of my evading the teacher’s wrath. I’m fucking cool like that. Since we were out early so the others could work on the lab I headed to grab my math crap. I finished it up in the lab and had forty-five minutes to spare so I called Ashlee and we talked until it was time to head to math. I took the test and finished in about thirty minutes. This left me with two hours and thirty minutes to burn until the career planning class. I headed to the library and dicked around on my laptop for about an hour or so. Then I walked around, got some food, and then tried to figure out stuff to do. I ended up standing outside the main building for a good forty or so texting the Bako crew and then I ripped open my Dr. Pepper. While tasting the delicious flavors unleashed inside my mouth I noticed “B” walking up to go to the writing lab, or so it appeared. She noticed me standing and said “hey.” I did the same and added a question about how she was doing on the writing lab. She said that she was on the last part and asked about if it would be hard. I assured her it wasn’t very difficult and that she could add her older paragraphs to it and such. She seemed relieved and then we exchanged “byes.” I watched her in a not so stalkering way walk down the hall and as she did I quietly said “I’m going insane.” It just came out. Then the thought of All Along the Watchtower came to mind. About five minutes later another friend comes up and we talk until my last class. I headed in to it and noticed the lack of “B” in the writing lab. No questions came to mind about it as I was feeling worn out already. In career planning we got in groups and discussed how to get fired, how not to get fired, and how to get hired. Slow day. After class I headed home on the very wet freeway. It was stop and go for most of the time.

When I got home my dad was watching football and I ended up crashing and took a nap. I woke up an hour or so later and then did some computer stuff. After the football game was over I watched last night’s Life and then played some Call of Duty 4 with some Shackers. Good times. Now I’m waiting for the Bako crew to get home so we can get some laughs in before I have to suffer through the English exam tomorrow. Here’s hoping I pass that fucker.
