I worked 40 hours during my spring break and I thought this was going to be my worst break, since my 360 died on me and I had homework due the week after. But last Saturday when I free falled more than 10,000 ft., I cannot complain.
I remained calm throughout the whole thing, until I saw the first guy that jumped out of the plane. It was similar to those cheesy action movies where a chunk of a plane was removed and some guys get vacuumed out of there. That's what I saw and I was screaming in the inside. It was the most exhilarating experience of my life and anyone who calls me a pussy, needs to skydive as well. My most favorite part of that whole crazy experience, was when my tandem opened the chute and I was just looking down at the scenery as we were slowly lowering to the ground. It was beautiful and I have a phobia to heights. It's extremely safe and my instructor was very thorough and helpful during the whole process. Oh, and we couldn't find my rip cord so my instructor pulled his own, THANK GOD.
BEFORE YOUR LIFE ENDS, SKYDIVE. No rollercoaster ride can match this and it's safer to skydive than to drive on the road.
Other than that, everything's fine. Except stupid Microsuck's 360 broke on me. (Not the red ring of death, if it was, blood would've be on the streets.)
RIP YoshiA group on campus held a SSB Melee tournament. Someone told me about it at work and he said there was a $3 dollar registration fee with the grand prize of a $40 gift certificate to the mall. I invited some friends over to participate who were Anthony, Ryan, and Eric. Just using their Power Stranger profiles to describe them. Anthony was Zelda/Sheik, Ryan was Luigi, Eric was Falco, and I was Yoshi. It was a double elimination match meaning we can only lose two matches before we're no longer eligible for first place. I put up one hell of a fight.
I was against someone I knew who played Marth, I beat him twice, I fought and beat a guy who played Ganandorf, he was pretty good. But I lost twice to my co-worker who played Zelda/Sheik with only using Sheik. There were 15 entrants and I was ranked #5. Not bad eh? Anthony was undefeated, until the final match he lost twice and ended up being second. I admire that guy. Eric didn't do so well, but he didn't suck so much as he used to. But the most hilarious one was here Ryan was Luigi and defeated a girl who played Marth. Man, I should do that agaiin.
SILLY ASIAN PEOPLESo far nothing hectic in my classes. I know now that I said that, next day I'm going to preoccupied with assignments thrown at me. I love ya tommorrow. I just want to share some humor with you e-friends. I bought this book from a crazy store called SQECIAL MEDIA. Trust me I spelled that right, I've been in the store. They all kinds of stuff there, gay magazines, witchcraft books, famous people as an action figure, Marijuana magazines, devil rubber duckies, man that place is sooooo weird. Interesting and disturbing merchandise I've witnessed.
But the one book I bought was this baby:
The Big Bento Box of Unuseless Japanese Inventions by Kenji Kawakami
It's a book about almost useless inventions, hence the title. Hilarious book. It makes you think how ridiculous everyone can be and that there are no limits. These inventions are called Chindogu. Let me share you some of these whacked out contraptions.
Full-body umbrella -To prevent your whole presence to be dry.
Solar powered lighter -Lights with the help from the sun.
Ten-in-one gardening tool -Ten convenient gardening equipment all in one!
Eye drop funnel glasses -Increase your accuracy on eyecare.
Smoker's mask -Why smoke one? When you can smoke fourteen!
Daddy Nurser -Mom ain't there? Breast feed your kid with these babies!
Solar-powered flashlight -Self-explanatory. (Defeats the whole purpose of a flashlight doesn't it?)
I still haven't possessed a Wii, which really pisses me off. Those Ebay fanatics. A simple remedy? A full marathon on House and 24. I find it comical that Hugh Laurie plays a Nintendo DS. I bought the first season of House and I'm renting multiple CDs on 24.
