Me: Dude.

Me: This is awesome.

Me: I have a giant shirt poncho.

Katie: . . .

Katie: I'm glad for you.

Katie: I think.

Katie: o.O

Me: 4 shirts and many, many safety pins.

Me: Coupled with my giant NHS foam fingers, I have immortality.

Katie: So if I knife you.

Katie: Just hypothetically.

Katie: Will you not bleed?

Me: I'll bleed purple and gold.

Katie: Will you die?

Me: And then a sword will erupt from the wound and stab you.

Katie: ...Will you die?

Me: No

Katie: Oh.

Katie: Okay.

And the Word became Flesh by ~middaymoon on deviantART

I swear, I must have edited and updated this 5 or 6 times. Making the shadows and the words just right...But now I'm fairly sure it's done, and I'm happy with the product. I could get used to black and white. Or maybe white and black. It might be better, that way.


Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones


An intense song from Disciple. Not much going on with the lyrics, but the sound of it is pretty awe-inspiring. The vocals and the simple rhythm. Great stuff.

As you can see, I'm feeling pretty inspired right now. That art piece came out of nowhere last night when I was about to go to sleep, and I didn't get it right until earlier today. I'm quite happy with it. And the music came on my Zune today in the car. It was quite nice.

Also notice that I changed the image in the corner. You like? Haha.

My Video Productions teacher was complaining to me that I didn't have enough color in the graphics I made. I had half a mind to whip out my cell phone and show her the twin themes that are completely greyscale. But I didn't. Because it wouldn't have helped, and she probably would have taken it away.

TODAY WAS NERD DAY. We're having spirit week, and today was the day that everyone was supposed to dress up as a "nerd". I took things very seriously. My costume entailed:

-My jeans were belted up at my belly button, and rolled up past my ankles.

-A shirt that I bought in MIT that resembles this one but with an i to represent the imaginary numbers and just better looking in general.

(Snorg Tees has some pretty good designs, though I hate to admit it. Threadless forever!)

-A fanny pack with a broken zipper. I put my pocket watch and keys in the pocket instead of my jeans pocket, so I had the cord hanging there all day. Sweet.

-A jumbo pen hanging from the fanny pack strap. This thing is about a foot long and still writes.

-A toy Yoda head that is used to store loose change. I put my lunch money in it and hung it from my belt loop all day.

And, finally, a neon yellow hat that says "SAFETY PATROL" on it that I've had since 5th grade.

On top of that sweet costume, I completely changed my body language to what I thought would match a spacey kid with low self esteem. I hunched over, waddled a bit like a penguin, kept my arms still when I walked, opened my mouth, and looked at the ground all the time.

Plus I said some really strange things to people I didn't know. The administrators loved it, but the students just gave me funny looks. Win.

Tomorrow is late start. I shall sleep now and do my homework in the morning.

My Boston trip has been quite the experience. I'm really glad I came...yesterday, MIT blew me away. The place simply oozes creativity and talent. The visit to Brown today went a little less well, partly because it was raining and partly because it was sort of not-well-planned. But I'm thinking that if either school admits me then I'll go. I'm pumped.

On the way to Boston College (meh) today, we took the subway system. I've gotta say, I've had quite an experience with transportation this weekend. All walking and subways. There's no room to park anyway. Something I could get used to. At any rate, we were at a stop and these two guys walk in with a stereo. When the train starts moving, they introduced themselves as "two black dudes dancing" and started performing on the train for donations. It was pretty sweet. Cool guys. One of the guys goes, "Hey! I just got a 5!"

"From who?

"From this rich white dude."

Hahaha. Give it up, ya'll.

Mom left her purse on a bench at Brown, so we missed the tour for Boston College. We turned up just when the BC-Florida State game was ending and had our own tour. Turns out they only seem to have physics or engineering as a second thought. Meh, indeed.

Did you know that MIT is known for their pranks? They call them hacks. It sounds like something I could get into. It's the only time I've heard of such a distinguished school having an actual, explicitly known pranking tradition. They even have a museum of some of the best ones.

There's an entire building devoted to computer programming and artificial intelligence, and another that looks like it was designed by Willy Wonka but supposedly has perfect acoustics in every lecture hall.

THEY HAVE A NUCLEAR REACTOR. :D

I want it.

Did you tie for it with anyone?

10:14pmRyan
nope.

10:14pmSteve
You win the event. Congrats.


I found a poem I wrote a while ago, and now I'm sprucing it up and brushing off the dust. I showed it to Ryan and he liked it quite a lot.

There's something deeply satisfying about expressing one's self and having others appreciate it. It's like they're appreciating me, to a point. But also it's like I'm contributing something, adding something useful to the world. It's nice to be a part of that.
