      I believe that in the pursuit of technological advancement, and aesthetic appeal, we forget the essentials. Ease of use! Honestly, this site, like facebook used to be simple, plain, and easy to use. Now it's complicated, slow, and annoying. Facebook has also done the same... and it's annoying. And now the mod system is more like digg... and so I fail to see what the point of them are, RT might just as well implement the digg system here. And it's not just websites... notebooks are trying to use heat sensitive buttons which are finnicky, cars try to use voice recognition navigation... etc, all of which sound/look cool but fail miserably. Anyways, that's just my take on the latest trends... partly venting because I've got finals coming up in 2 weeks which I'm not at all ready for, lol. And I'm ready to come back to the US. And all of my breaks are always timed so that I get back right after everyone goes back to school.

      ANYWAYS, since I'll be buried in books I wish you all a very Merry Christmas in advance, and a Happy new year!

    • Well well!

      It's been a while!

      First things first, Congratulations to President Elect Barack Obama. Hopefully we can finally get the country/world (many around the world were staying up to watch how the US election unfolded) back on track financially. I enjoyed a celebratory slab of beef jerkey :)

      So yeah... since my last post, I've gone home, and come back to India... definitely not thrilled to be back here. I now have a new laptop, a Sony Vaio... so I can quit wanting to kill myself every time I need to do something on a computer, considering the Indian crappaq (Compaq) I was using for the past 6 months... let's just say it took me an hour to type just my address... that's how badly it would freeze up.

      Specs on my new comp:
      2.0GHz Core 2 duo
      3gb ram
      250gig HD
      GeForce 8400GT w/512 dedicated

      ofcourse It's not brand new... it's also 7 months old... my parents bought it for me back in March, and planned to send it to me... but shipping costs $340 minimum for a 6 pound package to India... so they had me buy myself a crappaq for $650... the WORST computer I have used in my LIFE. Yes, that includes MS DOS and Windows 95.

      That's really just about it... except that I brought myself a new 360 since my old one died... not planning to touch it for a good while.

      Anyways, I have exams coming up again, so I'm going to have to keep this short for now... Sorry, take care!

      Wow. It's been a loooong time since I last posted, or did anything significant on here! Once again... I'm still here for med school, studying my arse off. We've got finals coming up in 3 weeks... which will themselves be about a month or so long. (papers-2/subject+labs) So I'm just taking a quick break to say I'm alive. It reallly sucks here, and I can't wait till the year's over. You don't know what I'm willing to give right now for a BigMac or a freaking taco, lol.

      Anyways, time to get back to these:

      Is normally a good day. A very good day. And today it should be even better, after all, it's my 18th Birthday! I'm legally an adult now in the US and can now smoke or view porn if I was so inclined. (16 is legally an adult in India I think) Since I'm in India... my mom arrived yesterday. And brought me some stuff. The most important to me are these:

      8247587_ra.jpg
      (India charges like $120 for the same thing... not as good though)

      moto_vt2542.jpg
      (finally, I can call people w/out running up $100+ phone bills per month in INDIA!)

      8223264_ra.jpg
      god, it really sucked not having a real alarm clock (You can't get radio alarm clocks in India!!!!)

      not to mention a crapload of American meds, surgical gloves (I can't stand to do dissections like local Indians prefer to... freehand), Purell, pens, paper, etc. Yeah... you might get the Idea that I'm pretty much against anything made for India. And I am, lol.

      Yes, everything besides food and rent is wayyy more expensive over here in India than it is in the US... My rent is only $125 per month (Indians are always in awe over how much I pay per month, lol) for a small 1 bedroom, 1 bath, small kitchen, and small living room apartment w/marble floors and granite countertops. Triple it, and I can have a mansion in Indian standards. Normally every day, I eat at a fancy sit down restaurant, and if I have time, I eat there twice a day. Anyways... it's night over here... time for bed so that I can burn some cash for entertainment (literally) in the morning, before I head off to school (oh sorry, College, saying "school" is offensive here) lol.

      Take care everyone!

      So what's up everyone?

      Currently, I'm in India. Sorry it's been a long while since I last got on and really did anything... I guess the workload that you have in Med school doesn't leave much time for anything else.

      School started August 1st for us, so I'm virtually swamped. (these locals are freaking smart).

      Anyways... got to get back to the books. Cya around!

      Happy 4th to all!

      I realize it's been a while since I last did anything on this site... since then I've graduated (Woot class of 07), partied, bought some nice items, checked out the Iphone the morning after release, and said goodbye to numerous friends. And I am preparing to go off to Med School out of state.

      Here's my new mp3 player (my graduation present from my parents)

      EC.SDK.SDMX44096A70.JPG
      It's not as big as it looks in the picture (I'm not kidding). My friend TheElmo also loved it, and called me the next afternoon to say he bought himself one.

      My new cell phone:

      img_1419_motorola-krzr-k1.jpg
      Bought it Sunday, unlocked it yesterday.

      Finally... we seniors are all done with our public education. Went to Disneyland for Gradnite 07 last night starting at 9, and got back at almost 11 this morning. All I have to say is that you don't want to see me or TheElmo driving at the moment... I am very tired, and am going to bed now. I'll make a more detailed journal tomorrow. gn!

      Not so-Quick update: Well, I just returned from Santa Clara... uber boredom. I drove to San Fransisco on Wensday... and ofcourse, Vegas (which I returned from last Sunday) was pretty fun, although it was quite hilarious to see the super drunk people stumbling all over the place... and the hillbillies. As I always say... alcohol is for the weak. The drive to Vegas was relatively uneventful... I only drove from about 98-110MPH for about 90% of the way. The way back to Cali was... very interesting. We went to hoover dam first, which is supposedly the world's largest and greatest dam... a huge letdown in my opinion. I thought the capacitators outside the dam were cooler than the dam/turbine setup itself. Anyways, we then drove in the complete opposite direction of the way we were supposed to go at first... and then realized that, turned around and accidentally turned into an airport... the "COMMERCIAL VEHICLES ONLY" section to be exact. so basically I had numerous taxis and limos and bus drivers honking and shaking their fists at me... (hilarious, but embarrasing). Anyways, after a huge waste of a couple hours trying to find out our correct way back, I did get us home by midnight driving only about 95 the whole way. Fun stuff... that was vegas.

      In other news, I just picked up my car yesterday with my friend TheElmo... the overheating blew my 2nd cylinder... (0 compression in it), and so I had to have another new engine put in by a expensive professional engine shop. And the guy showed me my old engine as well... and it had literally exploded. Everything in my 2nd cylinder was like flakes of metallic shards and powder and such. Anyways... atleast I have my car back.

      Also... I have lost my sponsorship again... help anyone? I will give you mods in return.

      Yeah, my only problem, I want to have money, I just don't want to work for it.

      You've seen Office Space I assume. If I had two million dollars, obviously after doing two chicks at the same time, I would do nothing. I'd maybe snowboard, but that's a hobby, no way I'd ever be able to go professional. I handle pain like a girl.

      No I have no idea where Fullerton is right now. I just know that its between SD and LA. It also boosts a 87% med school acceptance rate which is kickass.
