    • XBox One Trucks

      So the XBox One trucks came to my college today, and I just got back from giving them a run. The two games that were there were Forza Motorsport 5 and Killer Instinct.

      Holy crap I am excited for the next gen consoles. I guess I'll start with the controller? First off, ignoring the cables in the back to keep it attached so no one steals one, it felt wonderful to hold. The grips were just a little different from the 360 controllers, but your hand still fits on it awesomely. I started with a race in Forza, and despite the fact that I am not a big fan of racing games, this one was amazing. I don't know how much of it was because of the controller, but I will be honest, the triggers on it felt amazing. I got a little bit of resistance going around corners when my wheels started to skid, and I was able to get back on without any problem at all. So cool. I somehow won the race, and was graced with a cut scene of the car I had just used beat all to hell. Why? I have no idea, I actually stayed on the track somehow.

      Next was Killer Instinct, which I am not familiar with at all. I chose Thunder as my character, mostly because I wanted to yell "bring the thunder!" I know, I suck, deal with it. Anyway, I chose the typical fighting game strategy and hit as many buttons as I could as fast as I could. Hey, I won, no complaints here. But the buttons felt a little weird to me. It might just be because I'm so used to how far out the buttons are for the 360 controller, but these were barely even anything. Not entirely sure how much I liked it, but it doesn't seem like it would be too hard to get used to.

      This was such a great way to spend even just 15 minutes on my Thursday afternoon, and I am absolutely going to go back and get some more time with it after this class lets out. Stupid school. Before this I was a little excited about next gen, no enough to have pre-ordered one for myself. But this makes it really hard. I want it. I want it baaaad.

      TL;DR XBox one trucks came to my school. I came, I played, it was awesome.

      So it's always fun to have an hour and a half in between classes. I get to watch let's plays for the entire time on the schools internet. Works for me

    • The continuing story of my engagement

      3 years ago

      So I get engaged almost 5 months ago. Wow, really? 5 months already? Damn.

      Anyway, our original plan was to get married after I graduated from college, which would be in the summer of 2015. My fiance was here a couple weekends ago, and we were talking about our plans and where everything would happen. Church vs. outside, reception place, rehearsal dinner, etc.

      Then she had a crazy idea. What if we get married before I started student teaching? Like, really, what's stopping us from doing that? We said that we didn't want to get married any sooner so that we weren't going to be that couple who was married, but couldn't live together yet because I was still in school. (She's a year older than me, and graduating this May. I'm a Junior, but my program is a 5 year program because music ed has so many class hours and observation hours)

      So as it stands, our tentative date is January 3rd, 2015. I can barely wrap my head around that whole idea, I'm getting married in a little over a year and a half.

      TL;DR I'm getting married 6 months earlier than I expected I was going to.

      It's almost April... C'mon Illinois, what's going on here.

      I'm still trying to decide whether this is a good thing on a day that I would have had 4 hours of clinical observations for one of my classes. Oh well, back to bed I go!

      So I just watched Gangnam Style with my mom, which then lead to about 20 minutes of us showing each other dumb YouTube videos. How is this my life.

    • My weekend

      4 years ago

      lordvasarius

      Ok, I had an awesome weekend, and I don't want to make a huge journal here because I don't really know how much anyone here would want to hear about it, but I'm so happy about what I did. I've been dating my girlfriend for the last almost 4 and a half years. It was the summer before my Junior year of high school, and I'm in my junior year of college now. Saturday, for her 22nd birthday, I drove the 4 hours to her college to surprise her for her birthday.

      And I asked her to marry me.

      I'm engaged. And couldn't be happier. I really hope everyone else had an awesome weekend, because I sure as hell did. If anyone wants the whole story of it, message me or leave a comment, but this is all I'm gonna put here.

      Next stage of my life, ACTIVATE!

      It's the fact that pieces like this can be arranged for trombone and that I get to play it that makes me so happy that I do what I do.

      So I just opened up an online access code sheet for my Chem class, and the minimum browser requirements were either IE 5.5 or Netscape 6.0
      Can't stop laughing

      The only way to change your name is to go to someone who has mod power on the site. Meaning a site admin or one of the staff. I think you've got a better chance of getting a site admin to help you.

      Good luck.

      Good thing I read your about section. I was thrown off by the difference in name between TS and RT. I almost denied your FR. Anyway, request approved.

      Is it bad that every time I see your picture in thumbnail form, it looks like a guy holding a cat as he would a gun?

        Uh, that might be a little bad, but I'm sure stranger things have happened. P.S. Finally listening to the internet box, I'm excited
