I hurt
Monday. 11.9.09 10:55 pm
I played lots of running and jumping games last night for about an hour and a half straight, and today I went and did it again. Everything hurts. Basketball practice starts this Thursday, and I'm so...looking forward to that.

Also, I got straight up pelted in the balls with a dodge ball. The only time I will thank Charlie for replacing the old rubber kick balls we used to use.

I wrote a haiku.

I did not do my math homework, which is going to hurt a ton tomorrow.

I had my feet cut out from under me yesterday and then, on an unrelated topic, they were driven up my ass. Everyone's beating me up.

For all the times I've said "maybe THAT's my problem," or something along those lines, I certainly don't act on it much.

I absolutely hate it when people say something incomprehensible, like with some really bad typos or with food in their mouth or something, and it was supposed to be somewhat important, and when you ask them what they said or what they're talking about, they don't know. WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU DON'T KNOW. I don't see how hard it is to explain a bunch of letters you typed or the words that sounded somewhat like "Uh theek uh gun frop." It doesn't matter if you didn't mean to say something or it was unrelated to the conversation: if that's the case, then tell me THAT. Problem solved. Until you do that, I'm sitting here trying to figure out what the answer to my question was to begin with.

Ugh. Berry.

Kicked him right in the face
Sunday. 11.8.09 5:59 pm
Not much of interest has been going on with me lately. Doing homework, college applications, hanging out with friends, managing to waste hours every day, etc. It's no-shave November, which means the fact that hair seems to grow on my face asymmetrically will be glaringly obvious by December.

I need to get my wisdom teeth taken out.

I don't know how I feel about colleges right now. Take MIT for example. I DEFINITELY want to go there. But do I want to go there for undergrad school? Would it be better for me to be at MIT for the rest of my academic career, to go there and then to somewhere else for Grad school, or to go somewhere else and then MIT for Grad school? I dunno if I want to pay for 6+ years of MIT. But, yeah. Part of me dreads getting accepted, so I can try again for Grad school and get my best degree from MIT. Part of me is just excited to go no matter what.

Also, if I don't get in to MIT, what's my secondary choice? Clemson in particular is confusing me; a TON of my friends are going there, but I've always been half-opposed to the idea of going where EVERYONE in South Carolina seems to go. I'm sure I'll have no problem being accepted. I just want to stand out. And meeting new people is kind of exciting. So I'm completely torn.

I feel bad because I'm not giving much thought to the other great schools I'm applying to, like Brown or Cornell or Virginia and Georgia Techs. Actually, there are more that I just don't remember. Fantastic.

Too much!

Random Update

I missed 4 days of school being completely zonked out by inflamed tonsils, massive head aches, fatigue, etc.

Last night I went to Ryan's for a double movie night and the first sleepover in quite a while. We watched 28 Days Later and The Shining. Both fantastic movies. Jack Nicholson owns.

I'm completely confused because I thought there was some sort of scene in The Shining that had little dancing figurines (like on a really ornate clock) that started bashing each other with hammers or something of that nature, but it wasn't in the movie and I couldn't find mention of it on the internet. Am I just crazy?

A nurse had to squeeze my finger for almost 5 minutes because I wasn't bleeding enough to get a good blood work. It was kind of strange.

School work is probably going to drown me now. I need to get on my college applications, get on my bed room, and do this final draft for the IA that I hate with a single-minded passion. Ugh. I lost a whole week.

Parasite Eve is a movie from Japan around 1996. Saw it on youtube. It was pretty cool. Neat premise, decent execution.

Now to study for a test I heard about by chance.

After using Mac computers
Sunday. 10.25.09 2:18 pm
for several weeks, I admit that they SEEM to run better than PCs (but I haven't really gotten to test them extensively, seeing as how my teacher is crazy). I would like to point out, however, that there is a difference between a healthy use of keyboard shortcuts, which I've found in PC computers, and a UI that breeds a complete dependence on the keyboard. Seriously. You cannot do ANYTHING without holding down some command key or another. On a PC you have to such keys, plus one more that I don't count because it only brings up the start menu (good!). They are labeled Alt and CTRL. Mac programmers don't even have the decency to refer to their "Option", "Command", or "Control" keys as such, but instead with these freaky symbols that, at a glance, have nothing to do with the keys they represent.

Bah. I'm sure you get used to it eventually, but in the meantime I'm looking through menus in programs and all the shortcuts look like ancient hieroglyphics. And is it too much to ask for a RIGHT CLICK? I feel like I should just learn to type completely one-handed so I'm always prepared.

Other than that, my only issues are things that are simply different than the PC layout, not especially better or worse. I'm sure the Dock would be more intuitive to me if I hadn't grown up on Microsoft.

Oh, and I think I have strep throat or something. -rolls eyes-
