    • Prom...

      12 years ago

      RocketR

      I haven't updated in a while so I figured I'd give you all the lowdown on what's going on.

      I got back from Prom this afternoon at 3ish (well, not the actual Prom but from an after party). All I've got to say is that I had a FREAKING AWESOME TIME!! The actual Prom wasn't all that great but for some reason it never is here. Although we did have a tight setup. We were on top of the Florida State University Center. It's not big up there but they had great desserts and an awesome view (well, for Florida's view that aren't by the beach anyways). Before and after the Prom was amazing though.

      The girl, I was going to ask to go but was asked by someone else like just a couple minutes or so before, and I hung out a lot. Her date was a kind of a jerk and just left her a lot of the time so we ended up talking and what not. We did all sorts of stuff that was so much fun. We swam, made sweet shirts, watched movies, and so much more. We didn't go to sleep until around 5 a.m. We got up early as well and did even more stuff. I'm just so pumped about it still that I am left speechless. =P So, in the end, waiting turned out to be alright after all. I wish those times could just go on and on.

      Well, I would say more but I'm bushed. Been going almost non-stop for 38 hours or so. The rest that we got wasn't really rest so that's why I'm saying "almost non-stop", hehe.

    • Prom...

      12 years ago

      RocketR

      Well, things have been really busy lately. I won a couple local tournaments (tennis) in the past weeks. School's been keeping my free time to an all-time low (at least it seems that way anyways).

      Okay, so here's the main story for this journal. I was planning on asking a girl to our Prom (which is in three weeks) because I've known her for about two years now and we go to lunch together everyday and have a blast (with other friends too though, and why are there so many parentheses in this post?). Back to the subject, so I was going to ask her on Tuesday after school because that's when we get a bit of alone time. Well, just after lunch while we're walking back to class, I remembered I left my notebook in my car so I went back and she said that she'd wait up. Another friend of mine, came over to her during this period of time and asked her to go to the prom with her. smiley7.gif Now, I know this seems a bit weird since right now it seems as if this girl and I have been going out for a while. We've just been pretty good friends over the past two years, after all, she was one of the first people to befriend me at the school that we're at. So, it's not like my friend is just a flat-out jerk. Anyways, I came back and I heard them talking about it and I was heart-broken. I couldn't believe it. My friends that I go to lunch with have been trying to get me to ask her for about a week now but we've never had some alone time for me to just ask her since I've been so busy. This really frustrates me.

      Now I don't feel like getting another date to the Prom after all of this happened. I just don't know what to do now. This really stunned me. Any ideas of what I can do to help relieve the pain?

    • My Birthday!!

      Well today was my birthday and I have to admit that it was pretty darn sweet, smiley0.gif . I got to hang out with friends almost all day and I got to see a good old friend from out of town. We had tons of laughs and just an overall great time. Anyways, that's a quick wrap-up of my day (really quick).

    • Freakin' Computer

      12 years ago

      RocketR

      I got my computer back this past Saturday night and there were a few problems that had to be worked out but most of them have been fixed. The real problem is my dad's Internet Filter. He installed this several years ago and it really pisses me off since I can't go to several popular sites. Now, just yesterday, almost EVERY single site that I check everyday has been blocked. This includes, RvB, MajorNelson.com, Engadget.com, and much more. Right now I have to access this site through the P.A.N.I.C.S. sub-domain because it's blocked any other way. I want to reformat my hard drive to get rid of it but I know my dad would get pissed. Why does he have to not trust me that I'm not going to do some of that crap. I mean, come on, this is just ridiculous. It blocked ESPN for "Sports Violence". That was just plain sad. What to do, what to do...

    • My computer is fried!!

      12 years ago

      RocketR

      Well, the title just about sums it all up. My computer is fried so I have had no chance to get on this site whatsoever in the past week. As of right now, I'm using my parent's computer (which is horrible with its 128 MB of RAM).

      In other news, I saw Ghost Rider tonight. To be honest, I was not too impressed by the movie. It...*sigh* it was just a "meh" Marvel film. Up there with the likes of The Hulk. I doubt I'll watch it again anytime soon.

      Also, I no longer have my 360's power supply so I'm not sure when I'll be getting it back (long story). Anyways, I hope everyone is doing well. See ya around

      EDIT: Just realized this was my 50th Journal, WOO!! smiley0.gif

    • Staying busy as ever

      12 years ago

      RocketR

      Wow, I have had hardly any free time whatsoever lately. Sorry about not updating for a good bit, I just haven't been able to take much time off from my school work right now.

      I have two documentaries due next week. One on "The Life of an NYU Student" and another on Iwo Jima. The latter is not looking good so far. I have not spent any time on it being too busy with other school work and the other documentary. My Iwo Jima Documentary partner isn't doing anything either even though he hardly has any schoolwork so I'm not quite sure what we can do right now.

      In other news, I tried out for tennis and the coach wants me back tomorrow for a Varsity tourney and see how I do (I was a highly-ranked JV player last year). Hopefully things will work out alright. I haven't played as much as I would have liked (more like not at all). I should have more free time in my Senior year so hopefully I can get tons of playing time in and make it high on Varsity. I think its very possible if I keep working at it. My coach has always told me I'm a natural with my strokes and touch on the ball so I think it's very possible.

      Anyways, so how are you guys doing?

    • School...

      12 years ago

      RocketR

      So school has officially been back for a week now and it sucks more than ever. I love how teachers like to load everything on top of you all at one time. Right now I have to write a paper in Spanish, memorize a poem, work on two documentaries, and then try to find time to work on history fair. That list does not include regular homework as well. It's crazy. Ah well, what can you do?

      This past year has been an interesting one for myself and my family. I'd rather not go over all of it just for the sake of your sanity.

      Anyways, I hope everyone has a safe and Happy New Year. Don't get too drunk and be sure to have a dedicated driver smiley0.gif . Be safe with those fireworks too, hehe. Have a good one!

    • Leaked Halo 3 Footage

      From Al CapOWNage:

      This media all originated from GameFAQS. There was a Halo 3 beta test in Iraq.
      Apparently, a GameFaqs member, who is current serving in Iraq, uploaded a series of pictures and videos on the Internet.

      yeah, i used to listen to them back in the day, before anyone really knew who they were. Like in 2001, lol. I don't listen to them much anymore, but that has more to do with me being too cheap to buy their CD's than anything else. They're pretty sick.

    • XenoSlayer

      So, i see you like anberlin. i never really cared for their stuff that much (i am into more heavy stuff), but i do have a flier that was signed by them. It is right next to my head actually, lol.

      I also have a shirt that TFK autographed for me at freedom fest a few years back, those guys put on a great show. TFK all the way.

      I was really lucky to see him play against Federer at the Rome Masters last summer. He pulled quite a comeback in the tiebreak.

    • jackal5

      12 years ago

      Yeah these school courses I've been taking one at a time, so it's taken me a couple years to get through it all. Worth it though, I learned a lot.

      A good alternative would be to buy some books on the subject, but I find classrooms are easier with stuff like that, especially if you're just beginning to learn a language.
