      Somewhere around 2 years ago I posted a journal about how life was keeping me from doing much on here. If you hadn't noticed, that hasn't changed. Just thought I would let you know.

    • Life Happens, Internet almost forgotten

      10 years ago

      jihp10

      Long story sort, college and life has prevented me from doing much of anything on this site anymore. The only time I really log in here is when I'm trying to avoid doing something else and even then I'm usually only here long enough to see if anyone has said anything on anything of mine. So to sum it up, I probably will not be on here much anymore, but I'll check in every once in a long while as that is about all I have the time for now.

    • Random (not so) Small Update

      11 years ago

      jihp10

      So, here is a random small update that's probably more or less going to be about nothing. There hasn't been much going on this weekend, almost everyone on campus is still trying to recover after last weekend with Winter Carnival and all. If you are reading this and don't know what Winter Carnival is, go to the Michigan Tech website and search for it, you should find plenty on it. I am more likely recovered from it by now, but it has been a pretty slow day so far. Tomorrow should prove to be a bit more interesting with some family coming up, but it's hard to tell how much more interesting it will be. That's in addition to having a broomball game at 11am. You can look that up on the MTU website if you would like too. It's kind of like hockey, but with wooden handled corn husk brooms, a strangely sized blue ball, and shoes (still played on ice). Oh yeah and the brooms are modified with duct tape and/or hockey tape so they last longer, control the ball better, and allow you to hit the ball better.

      At this point I'm just rambling as I try to pass the time waiting for my primary computer to finish re imaging off of my back-up hard drive. Long story short, I was looking for a no CD crack of Age of Empires 1 and it's expansion so I could get a nostalgia fix, somewhere in the process of doing that my computer picked something up and I don't feel like fighting it, so I'll just go back to before I picked it up. I probably should have put the HDDs on separate IDE channels so it would go faster, but I didn't think about that until after I started it. My next computer build will be SATA, so it'll be a much faster process on that one. I already have some of the parts, I just have to pay them and my tuition off before I can go and get the rest of the parts.

      I'm almost done rambling, but I have to say, this is probably the longest journal that I have put on here in ages. Alright, I'm done now.

    • Semester number 1, done

      11 years ago

      jihp10

      Well, I have completed my first semester of college and I'm home for Christmas break. That's about all that I have to say right now, or at least that's all that I can think of saying. I'm still really tired, maybe I'll get around to making an actual journal entry one of these days before I go back.

    • Thanksgiving Break

      11 years ago

      jihp10

      Well, I'm off of college for about a week for Thanksgiving Break and it feels nice. I don' t have too busy of a week scheduled so I can sit back and relax some before I have to go back and get ready for exams. I can't even remember everything that has happened since a last gave a real update about things. So, I'm not even going to try. At this point all I can really think of saying is that it feels good to be able to relax and get some real sleep for once on a long time.

    • I am still alive

      11 years ago

      jihp10

      I know I haven't updated in a while, but a lot of things happened (college and laziness to name a couple) and I haven't had the time to give a real update. Not to mention that I probably can't remember most of the stuff that has happened.

    • +1 on Age.

      12 years ago

      jihp10

      Well, as of today I am 19 years-old and as usual there is no major change in how I feel because of the age difference. That's really all I have to say.

    • Update

      12 years ago

      jihp10

      Well I had almost this entire journal typed out before, but stupid me accidentally closed the tab before I could completely finish it and submit it and since I don't feel like typing it all out again, your going to get the short version.

      My computer parts came in, I put them in, computer runs so much better and is so much more capable of doing what I want it to do. Microsoft was being a pain about something though and I found a way to take care of it, so I don't have to worry about it anymore.

      Went to a couple more grad parties, saw one of the exchange students before she left, was happy that I could say bye to her one last time. Then went to bible camp for canoe trip. Stayed at camp until Monday morning getting ready for trip. Monday started canoe trip. Tuesday was a 9 hour day of paddling and the next three days were a lot more relaxed. On the third of the relaxed days we reached out pick-up point a day ahead of schedule, we were picked up and went back to bible camp. Next day we went canoing on another river, just so we wouldn't spend the day doing nothing. Saturday, came back home, repacked, left for NMU.

      Got to NMU for upward Bound, did usual Upward Bound stuff including another camping trip. Went rafting on camping trip and climbed a ropes course, had fun. I am taking Physics 201 at NMU as part of being a Bridge Student. The physics class prevented them from being able to get me a really good internship, so my internship is with the program. I will be making the program yearbook along with doing a couple of other things as the intern. Upward Bound is great as usual, but for me has a few perks including that I can walk around campus during the day as I wish, I get to keep my laptop with me instead of having limited access to it, my stipend is larger, and I only have one class.

      Back to computer related topics, since my computer can now handle running Xfire at the same time as games with the increase in RAM, I have actually started to use the Xfire account I started I have no idea how long ago (it's been at least a year)jihp10.png

      I think there might have been something else, but I can't remember, so oh well that's all I have for now.

    • Long Time No Update

      12 years ago

      jihp10

      I need to make a schedule or something to start going by for updating. But, let's see how long it takes me to cover everything that has happened that I can remember.

      To start, May 12, prom. Since I did not have a way to drive Eun and me to the prom myself, I talked to the girl who's house Eun has been living at and she talked to her date and he agreed to drive us. So because of that, we ended up going in a white H3 Hummer with flames on it (it belongs to his grandfather). We went to an Italian restaurant and they handed out bibs so we wouldn't get anything on us. We took a bunch of pictures and then went to the grand march. That thing took over half an hour, but as soon as it was done it was on to the actual prom. That was good, when something came on and I could dance to it, I did, otherwise I stood or sat around and talked, but I had fun.

      The next weekend, starting Friday after school ended, I did this work and play thing a a local bible camp to help them prepare for because of all the dead leaves and sticks all over the ground. We spent the part of the day with the good weather cleaning the place up, then after the weather started to get bad we finished work and began to play. I ended up 30 feet in the air on a high ropes course in the cold wind and what I thought was rain, but it could have been snow or both rain and snow, I'm not sure. After that I put another layer of two on and went paintballing. After that was over, I went home and took a shower and not too much longer after that went to bed. The next day, Sunday, I went paintballing again and it was a much nicer day. I got hit in the same spot on the top of the head both days. Either way, I had fun and it turned out to be a great weekend.

      Then began my last week of school. it went by really fast and on Thursday I didn't have to go into school until like 10 for commencement practice and Friday I had a half day. With only having to take three exams when I had six classes, I have to say I got off pretty easy those last few days. On Friday I went with some people to fill up water balloons because I guess the seniors usually through them at the under class when they come out of the school after our last day. I didn't throw any of the balloons, but I watched them being thrown and took pictures of it for someone. Let's see, I went home then found out my grandparents were at a small park with their RV, so I went to see them, them went to a couple grad parties, went home, did things, went to bed, and spent most of Saturday going around to grad parties, except for when I had to go pick up my mom at the airport. Then Sunday, the graduation ceremony, it went well and I got my diploma that day. For the rest of that day, I hung out with family here at my house for a bit, boshimi and PinkyHasAGun where there to help my keep my sanity, then we went to one of my best friends' grad party, went to the part for the exchange students for a bit, went back to my friends party, came home, then went to the lock-in. There I had fun and ended up winning two folding camping chairs, but traded someone them for a microwave. The next day after getting almost no sleep I went to another party and was there until midnight.

      Last Saturday I went to two more grad parties, this Saturday I go to a few more parties, then go back to the bible camp for a week long canoe trip. Once that is done on next Saturday, I go to NMU for my last year at Upward Bound. This year I'll be taking a college course, I should have an internship, I'll be helping the counselors watch over the students, and I'll be going to Florida on the last week of the trip.

      Also, I am finally getting the 1GB of RAM that I've been wanting since I built this computer and I'm also getting a new video card to add to it. This video card has DVI, so I can better utilize the capabilities of the LCD monitor that I got a couple of months back. No, I am not saying that I am actually getting these parts this time just to end up saying that I'm actually not getting them, I've ordered them and they should be here on Wednesday, so I truly am getting them. It's taken almost three years, but it is finally happening.

    • Past Due

      12 years ago

      jihp10

      Okay, well know that I am extremely overdue for an update I'll try to cover as much as I can remember.

      Those few days I spent up at Tech with boshimi336 and swimtassle ended up being almost 4 days because of snow. Somehow we ended up getting a lot of snow over my spring break that all start the day that I was going to leave for Tech. Anyway, I was there, I had a great time, I'm rooming with boshimi336 next year and it's going to be crazy.

      I've registered for all but one of my classes so far and my schedule did not come out like i was hoping it would, but oh well it's not too bad. That same week my class decided to have a banquet to burn off some extra money they have. This proved to be an interesting experience for a couple of reasons. One, it was the first time that I had been in the restaurant where they had it. Two, I had probably 5 or 6 girls trying to get me to take a picture of the men's bathroom so they could find out what it looks like. And three, they played a decent amount of techno, which is the only kind of music that can get me to dance and I ended up just letting go and people were amazed. It was actually quite funny for me to see and hear people's reactions.

      The next week one of the two elementary school's in my district had a talent show at the high school and they wanted stage lights for it and a spot light. Well, I ended up running the lights and the spot for them and almost burnt myself a few times on the spot light. That was interesting and boring at the same time.

      Here comes everything else, the Excellence in Education thing that my school does happened last Tuesday and that was fun. I was excused from all of my class, took a tour of one of the departments at Marquette General Hospital, got a free lunch, and then spent the rest of the school day in the park. I ended up working at the track meet taking place at the school that day too and the only thing I had to wear were my dress clothes, that was interesting. Sometime in the past month I asked Eun (the South Korean exchange student) to prom and she said yes, so next weekend I'm going to prom with one of my school's 4 exchange students. The only thing left that I can think of is that I graduate on the 27, that means I have three weeks of high school left.

      Yes, it is a well kept secret. There's a spot on our massive JAVA machine that is for regular, and we've served it before, but it's hard to distinguish the pots from one another once they're filled so if we are serving you personally, little waitress in white and black, then it's decaf. I'v elied both ways...I'm carrying a pot and I don't know what's in it and someone says, "Is that decaf?" it might be caffeinated, it might not be...I say, "Yes." most ppl don't ask, so we just pour and don't tell. ^_^

      wha? when did I do that? Anna Karenina was 253 exactly. I did all of the other reading, didn't get far enough in Anna, but that didn't matter. I cheated the system really. read everything else and then you know when you come to something that's unfamiliar, it was apart of the other story. And with so much to read I knew his quiz wouldn't be too bad.

    • PinkyHasAGun

      12 years ago

      oh Joe...you're too wise sometimes. :-) some of what I learn every year is new, but most of it isn't. At any rate I have mostly defeated my homework, just some 240 pages of Anna Kerenina and a lab in my HP class left over...

    • PinkyHasAGun

      lol. Ues, i actually do understand. It's all about the princible of the thing, of course. I hate Jessica Simpson too, but if it helps my skin, I've gone beyond caring. I think its funny tho that the moment I say I'm starting to like it, it dries out my skin and I start breaking out. -_-

      And I would never miss class. I don't have classes on friday, and none on monday until like 3pm. (I just got lucky there, every other day i have to get up at like at least 8 o clock.) I hope we have a most awesome year. =-)

    • PinkyHasAGun

      12 years ago

      That's an excellent, excellent point Jihp. It might have said who was drunk, but I must admit I did the writing off memory, so I can't say whether the article Bosh read me revealed it or not. One or the other being drunk alone still leaves the incident being a nasty crime. One thing I do have to say is that their choice of sex is likely less traumatizing then actual penetrative rape. That would leave both physical and emotional scarring. Of course never having been in the situation myself I can't say what's worse, but I have to say at least they didn't harm her that way.

      But again, excellent, excellent point. =-) Thanks for the comment.
