    • Haikus?

      11 years ago

      Drums888

      In one of my education classes today, an English major did a short lesson (for the sake of being critiqued) on Haikus. That put me in the mood, so I wrote a few on the spot. You will undoubtedly notice a recurring theme.

      #1
      Look out, Harvey Dent!
      Acid flies at your left side.
      You might go crazy.


      #2
      Harvey Dent is here,
      But he is never alone.
      His soul is broken.


      #3
      Former self is gone.
      Harvey lost flip of a coin.
      Only Two-Face now.

    • I'm Officially a Historian!

      11 years ago

      Drums888

      After a semester of work, I have finally finished the big paper that allows me to complete my history major here at the College of Charleston! It's been a long ride, but I am very pleased with the outcome. Once all was said and done, I had a little over 24 pages of solid text (and yes, I realize some of you have probably done longer works, but I don't care right now).

      Man, I kick ass.

      Feel free to leave me comments of congratulations or other ego-boosts. smiley8.gif

    • Adulthood?

      11 years ago

      Drums888

      I have six days of class left as an undergraduate. That's not to say I'm graduating, though; I'll be student teaching all next semester in some high school in the Charleston area. I should find out where in the next week or so, if the letter isn't already at my house waiting for me.

      That's weird to me. Student teaching is basically being a full-time teacher, so my college experience essentially ends in the next two weeks (a week from Monday, plus exams). I think what scares me most is the idea that I have to grow up. That's not to say i'm immature -- I just really enjoy my youthfulness. I realize I don't have to lose it when I finish, but I'm going to be expected to be a role-model and leader. I will have to guide the lives of these teenagers, and that sounds like a huge responsibility.

      I dunno. I just wanted to vent a bit. I've not really been thinking about it much (and believe me, that was intentional), but I feel like I can't really ignore it any longer. I have to embrace my "responsible adulthood" and move forward with my life.

      That's weird to me.

      My housemates and I made t-shirts. Most people used the Makoto Nagano print I designed, but Logan has a hoodie with Shunsuki Nagasaki, and I made a t-shirt with Shingo Yamamoto. Each has the logo on the sleeve. I'll post some pictures later on, maybe.

      Here are the prints:

      I received twelve negative mod points (and the information in this journal is based off the date from BEFORE someone went through and added some positives as a means of offsetting a bit) on a forum page tonight as a result of those in attendance failing to actually look past the words I wrote and understand the motivations and meanings behind them.

      The result?

      I gained a mod point. Who'd've thunk it?

    • All Hallow's Eve: A Reflection

      11 years ago

      Drums888

      Alright, we decided over the weekend to throw a Halloween party at our house. We invited a whole bunch of people, but by Wednesday we hadn't heard definite RSVPs and were afraid our shin-dig would be a flop.

      Well, it wasn't. A few of us were on the porch during the early hours and saw a group walking by in costume. Naturally, I started a conversation with them and it ultimately lead the deal, "If you come say 'trick-or-treat,' we'll give you a beer." Well, it worked. And they called people. Then the people we actually invited showed up, who invited more people. All said and done, it was a huge, huge success. Two kegs, two handles of Everclear, and a handle of gin gone, then we had to start kicking people out. All in all, it was an excellent, very fun night.

      So what was I? Everyone's favourite Gotham District Attorney, Harvey Dent! Here are a few of the pictures from last night for everyone's viewing pleasure.

      Me! The make-up was heavier and more consistent at evening's start, but still managed to look good until the end. And you can't tell this, but even my shoes are different (red Converse low-top on the left foot, black dress shoe on the right):

      One of my house-mates, Mr. Hunter S. Thompson:
      n21301238_33129657_17.jpg

      Another house-mate, his lawyer:
      n21301238_33129678_5328.jpg

      I have no idea who this guy is, but his Ash costume is one of the best I've seen (sorry, Rocket):
      n21301238_33129685_7331.jpg

      One of my favourite pictures from the evening -- the Batman villains! (Poison Ivy was there earlier, but she left):

      Plenty more, but there are the highlights I feel people on this site would appreciate most. Word.

    • While I'm on the Subject of Boston....

      I also want to make clear that my previous posts apply to sports, but not the band Boston. I love that band.

    • Addition to my Last Journal

      11 years ago

      Drums888

      Calling out professional sports in Boston was unfair.

      I kind of like the Celtics, even if they can't pronounce their own name correctly.

      The rest of my points still stand.

    • Time to Laugh at Aaron

      Scene: bottom of ninth, general cheering from everyone in my living room.... except me

      Logan: Man, look at Ron. He hasn't said a word.
      Chad: Seriously, Ron, you haven't said anything for the last hour. You gonna be alright?
      Me: Yeah.
      Logan: You sure?
      Me: Dude, I'm a (Carolina) Panthers fan -- I'll be good.

      (general amusement occurs over the fact that I cheer for losing teams)


      I'm now contemplating cheering for the Red Sox, just to see if my luck continues and the Rockies win. Could be a good trick.


      And because it has thus far accumulated -4 mod points in my image section, I officially announce the Journal premier of how I feel about the Red Sox (and to an extend, sports teams from the Boston area in general [here's lookin' at you, New England Patriots!]):
