      Upon further review, I have not posted on here in a long, long time. A cursory scan of my journal reveals that my last post, in '07, was a "more substantial update will follow" post. Well, almost 4 years later, here's the update:

      I have graduated college, started dating a girl, gotten a job teaching felons at a group home, gotten engaged to previously mentioned girl, gotten married to said girl, and am currently looking for a teaching job.


      There you have it. 4 years in 2 lines. I know, I lead an exciting life. Figured I'd best put something here to give people who click on the first comments on videos something to look at.

      As a side note, since I'll never, ever have 1st comment again: DEAR MORONS: Type something substantial when you get the rare opportunity of getting first comment. Don't just type "frist! lol!" That sucks. And if you do it, by extension, YOU suck. That is all.

      Good to know I'm still a jerk after 4 years...

      More substantial update to follow.

      Started class today in Topics in American Constitutional history.


      Guys, I've had naps more interesting than this class. It's like having a doggone textbook read to you. There's 2 grades! TWO!!! Midterm's 33%, Final's 66%. That's it. Worst part is, mind you, that this is the professor's specialty. He's written several books about it, and passed out his CV (look it up, it's a useful thing to know) to the class.

      To recap: Boring, tough, all grades mean an insane amount, and I can't BS because this guy knows everything. Lovely...

      On the bright side, my new black Firefox theme is great. And Firefox 2.0 gives you a spelling error line if you spell "Firefox" without a capital "f". Capitalism sucks.

      Not North Carolina history. As much as I love my state, this place is fairly dull during its early years. Which isn't overly fun, since our teacher is an Early American specialist.

      In other news: MLB2K7 is awesome, and women suck. The end.

      Sorry, I thought the title was cool.


      That's also what my car's doing right now. I think either the water pump or a hose in the radiator has gone bad. Either way, while it's not a major repair, it does leave me sans-automobile in a college town. This, for those of you who don't know, is a fate worse than death. Especially in Cullowhee, NC, which has the following facilities which are open and within walking distance:

      *Convenience store (no gas, though)
      *Subway restaurant
      *T-shirt shop
      *Pizza place
      *Hair salon
      *Chinese buffet
      *Tattoo Parlor

      Yyyyyeah, that auto shop better work fast...

      Yeah, so I finish my subbing tomorrow with a rousing round of exams that I didn't make and don't care about. The kids are all fairly amiable, so I'm not too worried about it. I felt like a jerk for pushing them so hard on their last project when all they will wind up getting is a check, check plus or a check minus. But...a job's a job.

      Speaking of which, I go back to school on the 1st (Friday). It goes a lil' somethin' like this: Leave here at 7am. Get there around 11. Move in my stuff from the car and my friends' house where I stored it. Go to work at 4.

      That's right, I get off work on Thursday, pack, drive 215 miles, unpack, then go to work.

      Jeez, I'm an idiot. OK. Talk atcha later.

      Oooook. Seeing as how my summer vacation (at least in the classical sense) is pretty much ending, let's see what's new.

      Well...I'm going to be substitute teaching starting tomorrow (the 21st). Annnnnd, yeah, that'll be fun. It'll keep my mind off of what happened on May 21st a year ago, at least...(For those of you who don't remember, that was the day of last year's breakup/emotional meltdown. As an update: I'm fine now, and she's dating a friend of mine. So we're good.) I head back up to WCU on June 1, so that'll be nice as well. Going to summer school. Woo.

      As for other stuff: MLB 2K7 is fairly awesome, despite the Derek Jeter on the cover; my friend Wes came, hung out, and ate our food this weekend. What a jerk. Uhhhh, and Randolph County is a bastion of excitement...



      That's such a lie...

      I updated my profile info, which I haven't done since I got on here about 2.5 years ago. I decided to do this since my last journal had a post about trying to get back into Rise of Nations and failing. I realized a second ago that RoN is still on my favorite videogames list.

      I'm such a loser.

      In other news, I met the class and teacher I'm gonna be subbing for in the next 2 weeks. Didn't seem bad, but I know how deceptive high school seniors can be. Also, I found out tonight that more people have orbited the moon than have thrown a perfect game in baseball. That's random, but it's pretty cool.

      Oh, I see. I really got to stop by more profiles these days, but I just forget to, and if I looked at as many profile and journal and image updates as I intended too, I'd never leave RvB. My watchlist is ridicks. infact, I only stopped in here because for the first time in what seems like forever, your avatar changed, because I've been through the episode pages fourteen hundred times, and your avatar has always been that Brooks And Dunn album cover (who're awesome, by the way), and this time, it was this pixel-ized thinggummie, and I was interested.

      So yeah. I ramble. So long.

      Also, gotta love that "3 week training process." Summer will be over and you'll have worked a whole week then gone to school.


      Yeah, seriously. I only have like 1.5 months left before college begins. And I'm still debating whether or not to keep this job during college. It's only about 20-30 minutes away, and $6.50 is more than I'm likely to make at any job on campus or whatever ($5.15 is minimum wage, here). I guess it'll depend mostly on how much I like working there.

      Sounds good.

      End of Saturday will be cutting it close to my deadline (Sunday night, and I'll be gone most of Sunday), so I'll make a backup comic just in case.

      I mean, getting it to me Saturday night is plenty of time, but in the event that you get busy, I won't have time to make one myself, so I'll just make one now. =P

      Well, minimum wage here is $5.15, and I'm making $5.75. So it's decent, I guess.

      I haven't gotten a paycheck yet, though, so I don't know how much that's going to come out to after taxes.

      I also don't know when I will be getting paid.


      ...I'm basically working under the assumption that they're eventually going to give me some money.

      Again... That kind of hot is just stoopid. The taste might be OK, but there's no nedd for it to be so hot you can't do anything with it.

      I suppose the Thais & Koreans would argue with me about that, though...

      Well, incidentally, I enjoy math. More-or-less. I'm also going into a field in which math is important, so I'll need to be its friend.

      But my math teachers over the past four or five years have sucked. XP

      Is there any way to sum up what you wrote above it? The pretty pictures distracted me.


      Nothing worth reading, really.

      That is no longer applicable. We quit talking completely a couple months ago, now. I was tired of always being the one that made the move toward hanging out, only to get rebuffed, so I called her on it and walked away.

      I don't know that it even did, and I suspect I mighta seen it on the TV or something, and gotten my hints from there. Who knows, anymore- that was years and years ago, and the events (not the causes) are what stick in my mind.

      Yeah, this is somewhat like that, except you do a lot more. =P

      NationStates only let you choose things. But this one actually lets you collect taxes, buy things, and attack people (if you want). It's a lot more fun. :D

      Allllllso, this comic smacks of this recent PA. Just a heads up, in case you get accused of plagiarism...


      Yeah, I've been told that. And, as I tell everybody, that was a coincidence. =P

      I have two excuses:

      1. I don't even read Penny Arcade.

      2. If I was going to plagiarize things, my comics would be a lot funnier than they are. But I don't, and they're not. I think that logic works. smiley1.gif

      Visual aids suck. I'm terrible at arts and crafts. XP

      In fact, I'm terrible with anything relating to art. As you can tell by my semi-famous webcomic... Featuring stick figures.

    • wizardmon5

      13 years ago

      Hope you got a good grade on that.


      Eh, I got a 63%.

      But that's what I was expecting. See, this is a pass/fail class, so all I have to do is have above an F in the class, and it'll be the same as getting an A+++++. And, after this speech, I have an 83% in the class, so I'm doing fine.

      Most of the reason I got such a low grade on the speech is because it wasn't long enough. But I just couldn't think of anything else to add. Plus I didn't create a visual aid, because this isn't arts and crafts class.
