Hallway Awkwardness

You know exactly what I’m talking about: when you see someone you know in the hallway and you don’t know what to do.The first time you see someone in a day, it’s always cool to say “Hi”, or mention their name, depending on how close they are. But then you’re also struck with the fact […]

A Day in the Life

And I survive another week.Went to a CS contest today, where, unforunately, Willie and I did not have the company of DNev. Regardless, we still did quite well with Aditya, getting 5th place. Fairley and Tom, with only them 2, did very well as well, getting 7th. The contest wasn’t very hard, but some of […]

I am Shocked and Appalled

People say funny things. And by funny, I mean terribly rude.To protect the identities of those involved, I shall use pseudo-names. So at lunch, my friend “Billy” was eating his lunch as usual. Not as usual, his crush was sitting next to him. Casual conversation, blah blah blah, and then she (his crush), who hadn’t […]

I Try Again

(Author’s Note: I still haven’t hit a story arc I really love enough to write in consistently, so I’ll keep switching it up) The life of an adventurer is tough. Especially when you’re blamed for having destroyed half of the realms, which, ironically, is your evil twin’s work.Too convenient, eh? That’s what the bartender with […]

Life is spelled S-C-H-O-O-L. At least, 2nd semester it is

Back to school. Fun. I know all about it.It’s better and worse than it was before. I don’t know if it’s a good thing, but I’ve been unable to maintain my Hope for studying and such. I excuse it by saying that I haven’t had as much work, but it’s just that: an excuse. I’ve […]

Resolutions, Schmesolutions

I could “scrooge” the time-honored tradition of New Year’s Resolutions, but I know other can more effectively ridicule the process (mr. castles), and I don’t think it’s a bad idea on the whole, if perhaps inaccurately named.Encarta Dictionary Tools says that a resolution is “determination: firmness of mind or purpose”. Now, we all know that […]

Life on Break

So what would the average male teenager do given several days of basically nothing? Video games, of course. It’s kind of sad how much time I’ve invested in them. I can’t say that CS:S leaves me with the most satisfying feeling. Neither do I feel ‘ne smarter for doing it. And I’ve spent way too […]

5 down, 3 to go

Well, the fall semester of jr year has ended, and, boy, I’ve never been happier. They always say that jr year is the toughest, and even with a light schedule, it is worse. Tolerable, but worse. Exams were too bad in that not bad until something happens on my report card sort of way. Exempting […]

Competition: When One’s Sucess is Another’s Failure

Region Band sucks. And I made it too. Very rarely do I use my blog to b*tch, but I feel the need to do it this time. So as I said, Region Band sucks. People spend months practicing three etudes, and it all comes down to (what should be) less than 10 mins worth of […]
