Just one more year.

Please, let me get through another school year. Then it won't matter. I'll be off to college, where I won't know anybody and nobody will know me. In some aspects, I want to start over. It's the perfect place and time. But in other respects, I will not change if I can help it. I'll still be me. I want to keep in touch with all the great people who've made me who I am. There are some great influences I've had and continue to have. My lunch table compadres. Most of my youth group. The guys from Movie Night. My friends I met at Clemson.
The list goes on, but I shan't go with it. The point is, I'm going to miss them.
Lateralus - Tool. A long song, and terribly boring for most people. This was my first taste of what I call "epic music" (of course). That is, songs that ask questions, are philosophical in nature, invoke images involving the subconscious, etc. Also, they tend to rely more on the actual instrumentation than on the lyrics themselves. From listening to epic music I've acquired a taste for good instrumentation, leading me to such bands as Dream Theater, and similar bands in the Symphonic Metal genre such as Kamelot or even Nightwish.
But this is my first. Even though it is not my favorite, it really holds a special place in my heart. Even if I don't always want to listen to it, I love this song. Shannon's the one who showed it to me. In fact, Shannon introduced me to a lot of music, even if I didn't like most of it. :3
I posted the lyrics, actually. It was a while ago, but I dug up the link for you guys. :D

My favorite point of view.
I think the frequent headaches recently are being caused by the freakishly cold water I have to swim in. I can feel it slapping my ear drums...it hurts.
I've got to get used to being in the water again. I mean, I'll never get used to the cold, but I can at least re-learn how to keep it out of my nose during backstroke. I have a great system, I know it! I just don't remember it.
I will, given time. TIME!
...I <3 physics. w00t!
OK, that was uncalled for. Sorry, all you literate types out there.
Watched my school's Drama Club's rendition of Shakespeare's The Tempest. It was pretty rad, even if I had a hard time catching all the words.
Notice that I used three possessive nouns just now. I'm just that talented.
How do you guys read my blog?

"Yeah, I know."
Story of my life.
Today in class we played Monopoly, and I had the worst luck imaginable. Seriously. My first 4 or 5 turns were the equivalent of going around the board twice, except
1) I somehow managed to only land on property that had just been freshly bought by the two people who were ahead of me, and
2) I managed to get into jail on two separate occasions, thus having to transverse the same hostile properties, pay to get out, and miss passing GO two times in a row.
After that, I managed to get a hold of two of the railroads and both Utilities, but only ONCE did I get money through my property. I got to pass go about twice. I think.
Plus, two people (the same who had bought everything ahead of me at the beginning of the game) managed to get most of the really expensive monopolies, so I didn't last very long at all.
Bah, luck based games. I didn't even get the chance to make good or bad decisions.
Yesterday was the first swim practice, and I've gotta say, I'm pretty happy with the way things turned out. It was freezing, and kind of hard, but I honestly think I did a lot better in comparison to, say, Ryan. Ryan is a beast at everything, so it's nice to challenge him. After that we bought some fantastic french fries from the pool store, drove around*, and watched Tenacious D.
*Oh my gosh. I drove 4 guys to the pool, and 3 of them were yelling the entire way. I was the captain of the ship, Kyle was first mate, and Ryan and John were just loud.
Kyle pretended the foam baseball bat was a harpoon gun. He kept pointing it at the whales driving past me and wailing at them.
hahaha. They're awesome.

Going through the motions
Running on fumes
Stuck in a rut
Orbiting in decay
Walking in circles
Wobbling off kilter
I feel I should point out that the spelling is purposeful.
