    College!

    Greetings CGA, It's been a while since my last visit/last post, but I'd like to let you know that somehow I'm still alive. Right now I'm on some crazy path of pure greatness that comes from accomplishment. Normally I'm used to coasting by, hating school, etc., but now that I'm a freshman, I'm...

    Guild Wars is not Opening

    This may just be my internet connection (since I'm also having trouble with Internet Explorer), but I can't seem to get GW to load. The shortcut opens the program but it doesn't do anything else. In any case, I just thought I'd let you know that it's essentially impossible for me to be...

    Proposing an SoE Alliance Vacation:

    I think it's about time that some SoE folks meet together in person on a real vacation. Perhaps a theme park or something [Six Flags Over Texas in Dallas, TX?]. I know there's always a bit of concern that goes hand in hand with meeting people from online in person, so it's probably best that...

    "Surprise! Here comes the future!" or "Military? Me? Really?!" or "Air Force?"

    So I'm probably the very last person you could ever see even considering anything to possibly do with the military... ever. But my aspiration in career choice has (for quite some time) been in aeronautics, aeronautical engineering, mechanical engineering, and engineering in general. I think...

    Who would have thought that piano playing could be so hard?

    Surprise! 11 pages of epic beauty is mine to learn (for the next few years). Un Sospiro, the famous Liszt piece. I thought it was all one pretty jumble of arpeggio spam, which I figured would be relatively easy. And I knew that my hands would be crossing over each other to play the melody...

    A novel idea... if only time would permit.

    Once again I find myself with an NRW (novel, ready to write [insert military MRE reference here]) and no time in which to write it. This one is best described as a "what if I were in this situation" thing... where the character representing my personality is thrust forcefully into a heavy duty...

    Computer Problem Randomly Begins... and Ends?

    This weekend my screen has crashed at least 4 times, generally foretold by a few seconds of a sound siezure. In all cases, it was a total death of whatever I was doing, involving an immediate emergency restart via holding the power button until the computer turned off, then hitting it again to...

    Gerontion, by T.S. Eliot

    In English, we're being required to read some poems... The first two we've done so far are by T.S. Eliot. "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" and "Gerontion." Now let me say first that I don't really like poetry. If you want to say something, just say it. But back to the point... I'm working...

    Consilium Christiani

    Yes, that's Latin. I'm a dork. So anyway, long ago in an alliance not so far away (once torn by civil strife but since reunited with old friends, etc. etc. [and yes, I mean the SoE alliance]), I had this lovely discussion circle. It was, in fact, a circle. And a discussion. This pretty...

    SR-71 Blackbird (large images)

    Greatest flying machine ever created. And I'm planning to go see one this month or in April. Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio has one, and that's only a 6 or so hour drive from my town. Although I'll never get to see one fly. :( Anyway... Some pictures of this sexy beast, the Habu:

    Guitar Hero: World Tour with my friends!

    WOW. That was probably the best party I've had at my friend's house! It was so hilarious playing Guitar Hero! Especially when I was singing. I can sing, but since I know I can, I started playing around... Also, I know the words to La Bamba better than all of my friends and 2/4 of them are...

    Call of Duty

    So I went to my uncle's and aunt's house this weekend because my dad decided he wanted to watch the Cowboys' game with them... despite my distaste for football... And my uncle offered me use of his other TV, and I noticed the XBox 360 hooked up to it. I can't say I'm all that up to date on...

    Ah the sweet smell of everything crashing down upon me.

    I'm feeling rather sarcastic today so in order to avoid being outright rude and un-Christian I'll cut to the chase... Current things going on: Approaching the end of the 6 week grading period and semester... which is tomorrow. Got rejected from Rice University, the only college I wanted...

    Just checking in...

    Seeing as I haven't done anything entertaining with my "HP Pavilion Entertainment PC" since I beat Oblivion in August... I've been too busy with IB (the worst program I've ever been in) to use it for anything but massive amounts of essays and homework assignments. In any case, I decided...

    Scorpion o.0

    Well lucky me; I was playing Hide and Go Seek with my nieces and nephew and I hid behind a piece of furnitue... After a rather short time, my niece found me, and as I began to get up from my spot, I felt a pinching sort of feeling on my left knee, and was rather surprised when I looked down and...

    Defending Christianity...

    I feel somewhere between "Wow I've just proven myself for God" and "I think I just died a little inside." Just a few minutes ago, I was recruiting in public chat on Guild Wars for my guild, advertising that I was looking for Christians... Someone started a Whisper chat conversation with me...

    Back to PvP I go?

    I'm going to want constant updates on this PvP stuff that I can now actually actively participate in now that I have TS AND a microphone... This also means i get to help make up builds, right? -.o I've already suggested an all paragon team, but it's risky in the case of any anti-vocal skills...

    Checking in again...

    Some of you may have realized I not-so-recently disappeared off the face of the Earth... Well, I'm happy to say that I might actually see you again on GW after months (months being used as a light term meaning +/-.5 years x_X In any case, I finally collected enough money by getting a job to...

    Greatest Game Ever?

    Now, I know plenty of you will totally disagree, but... According to a poll, BBC News has determined that the greatest game EVER... http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/6261546.stm is The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time! I have to say that I agree 90%! (the other 10% of me says that...
