    • It's been a month to the day

      12 years ago

      jihp10

      It was a month ago to this very day since I last updated. Sometime a short bit back I decided that I wasn't going to do track this year and instead decided that I was going to tech work for my schools spring musical. I went to the first practice that techie's were supposed to go to and found out that I was going to be doing the lights for the play. I am not exactly sure when that was that that happened, I've been working my butt off to get the lights ready for audiences which took place the 23rd through today, with today being the last show. It wore me out to no end, but it was worth it. In case anyone is wondering, the musical was Oklahoma. That's really about all that's happened that I can really think of talking about in the past month, but maybe it's because I'm so freaking tired.

      I have one more week of school before Spring Break and I'm going to be spending a few days of that up at Tech with boshimi336 and swimtassle. That's pretty much all I have for this one.

    • Let's see how much I can remember 2

      12 years ago

      jihp10

      Yet again, it's been so long since I updated that I have no idea what all has happened.

      To start, that girlfriend I mentioned in the last journal. Yeah well, that one didn't last. I really don't care either, just as long as she is happy with her decision. So, this time I really am going to stay single for the rest of the school year. The problem now is that I need to find a prom date. As I have already told PinkyHasAGun, I am considering taking the older of her two younger sisters. I've always found her attractive and have had multiple crushes on her, so if she would want to, I figure why not.

      The same day that my most recent ex broke up with me, I got a call from one of the guys directing that is directing the summer program I've gone to the past two summers this coming summer. The original director took another job offer from another college, so her husband and the not-so-resident resident director from last year are going to run it this year. Well, the reason I got the call we because they might be having what is called a bridge program. This is where a select few students that were previously in the program come back to the program for another year. The catch is that these students have more freedom than that regular students and at times are even put in charge of the regular students, not to mention they only have one class. From what I have been told I am one of two people on the top of the list for the bridge program and I need to figure out if I want to do it or not. I actually probably need to figure this out by this week as this is when I think they said they were going to call me back. I have no idea what I'm going to do about that, but I'll figure something out.

      Oh yes, I had my regional Science Olympiad competition on the 10th. We ended up 4th overall, so no states for us this year, sadly I really wanted to go this year too. On the good side though, I placed in two of my events. There was second in forensics (I think) and 3rd in scrambler. I was very disappointed with the scrambler because we should have done a lot better, but a few things went weird on that one. Overall it was a decently fun day though.

      The entire week after that must have been rather uneventful since I can't remember anything specific about it. It pretty much went the same for the next week, other than one thing. That one thing is that my dad saw a really nice LCD monitor with a $60 mail-in-rebate and for some reason told me to order it. (Probably because of the extra money we have from taxes.) Then he tells me that next month he's going to give me the money to get that 1GB of RAM I've been trying to get for over a year. So after that, I'm going to work on getting a laptop then a video card with DVI instead of VGA so I can really take advantage of my monitor.

      One last thing... my English teacher is insane. She gave my class a 16 week assignment when we only have 12 weeks of school left and she's not going to cut it down any. That is in addition to that fact that we have three more book projects due (one of them due on the 8th), there is a research assignment coming up that we are going to have to do, and we have to read another book in class that I know will have all kinds of writing assignments attached to it. If you see headlines in the news that a high school senior snapped and killed one of his teachers... it very well could be me, hopefully not though.

    • Let's see how much I can remember

      12 years ago

      jihp10

      I'm not sure how much I can remember since my last actual update, but I'll do my best.

      Going all the way back to Christmas, we went to my sister's husband's sister's house for dinner, had a good time and a good meal. That's really about it for what happened on Christmas. The two days after that I didn't do much that I can remember, I think there was a decent amount of gaming and trying to find a way to someone's house on the 28 for an original Star Wars trilogy marathon. Then on the 28 I got a ride to the marathon with the girl that I am now going out it. Had a good time there, as without realizing it that was pretty much the night that we got together. Long story short: I ended up sitting next to her, liked sitting next to her and somehow start holding her hand, when she was taking me home we talked about about how we had pretty much cuddled and the hand holding and both passed if off as just us being good friends. I'll get into more about the thing between her and me sporadically throughout this journal entry.

      On New Year's Eve I went to a guys house with Boshimi, PinkyHasAGun, and a few other people to this other guys house. The two mentioned above and me didn't drink while the others did, but we still had fun. One of the guys lost control and went into a tree on his way there, he was going a lot faster than he said he was and even with how fast he said he was going that was too fast for the road conditions. I had some firecrackers that I lit off in the road, that was fun. A little while later the three of us that weren't drinking left.

      During the course of that night I talked to Boshimi and PinkyHasAGun (they are a couple) about how trying to stay single for the year just wasn't working for me. I told them about one person that I had in mind to see if I could get together with but I didn't tell them about the girl that is now my girlfriend. I don't know why I didn't when in the back of my mind I think I somehow knew that I was going to end up with her, maybe I was in denial that she would ever like me. I don't know. Anyway in the first week of January I started to talk to my girlfriend more and I realized that she liked me and I finally fully realize how much I liked her (I like her even more now). To make what could be a lot of rambling on about this short, on the 6th I unofficially asked her out and two days later I officially asked her out and so far things are going great.

      I also learned the reason why that RAM I got does not work. Let's just leave it at this: I was overly excited about the chance to get 2GB of RAM for less than what I was going to get 1GB for and I didn't pay attention to something that I should have. But, I have recently looked up the price for the RAM that I need that will work and it's dropped since I first was going to get it. I'll have to dish out just a little over $100 now for the 1GB, that's 20 less than before. We also just got another car. My sister and her husband purchased another car so she is selling her old one to my dad. We can't drive it yet as we don't have the money to change the plate over or to get insurance on it, but we'll get those the first of the month.

      I had semester exams last week and I feel that I did pretty well on them, so I'm not worried about any of those. School as a whole seems to be going well, but I still can't believe that high school is almost over. That's all that I can think of right now, if i come up with anything else oh well I'm not going to take the time to write another journal or edit this one. I should have spent the time I took to do this on something for school or Science Olympiad anyway. I'll eventually get around to updating again.

    • Need to Update

      12 years ago

      jihp10

      I just realized that in less than a week it will have been a month since I last updated. For some reason I just don't have the motivation to type out the updates lately, or maybe it's the time. Either way I'm just leaving this one at this point so everyone knows that I'm still alive and breathing under my own power. I might get around to updating sometime soon and I might not.

      To help tie some of you over to my next real update, here's a happening in my life: I am no longer single and haven't been since the 8th of this month.

    • The World Hates Me, At the Moment.

      12 years ago

      jihp10

      No I am not trying to be Emo and all. "everyone hates me I wish I were dead", because really, I'm glad I'm alive. The only reason I say that world hates me at the moment is that a few, rather large, things have gone wrong in my life. Well, one I guess is actually rather trivial, but the other is pretty important.

      Let's start with my dad's car, or my dad's old car I should say. The short version: loan companies suck. The longest version that I will give on here: loan companies suck and lie like the dogs they are, so my dad's car got repo'd.

      Continuing on with the thing that is actually rather trivial, but still a major thing to me. This is going to need some slight explaining to make sense, I'll keep it brief. Pretty much, a deal was shown to me, 2 GB of RAM for less than the cost of the 1 GB I was going to get, slightly used but was said to be working. Well, I decided to go for it and it turns out the RAM doesn't work. So now my associate ( I have no idea why I called him that ) that showed the deal to me is going to work on getting a refund, if possible. We both will, however, be working on finding another way to get me more RAM. Part of the reason that I am really ticked off about that is that I borrowed Morrowind from a friend at school and as it is my video card is low end for the game, but with only 256 MB of RAM things can be a little iffy at times. The good part about that is that is still runs pretty well, all things considered, which really surprised me.

      I need to spread the word around my school that I am willing to work on and fix computers for money, but they need to either live in my immidiate area or need to bring the computer to me. That way I can create an income for myself and be able to start saving for college stuff, a.k.a. laptop. Oh yes, I didn't end up getting the switch I was looking at, but I got one very similar to it. So in anycase, my network speed is no longer 10 MB/s, but is the much better 100MB/s. Also, the rest of my life seems to be going pretty well, so I guess the world doesn't hate me too much right now.

    • Attempt at an Update.

      12 years ago

      jihp10

      To start, I did get out of that forsaken Current Events class and into an aid hour for my Calc/College Physics teacher. I actually did that the Monday after Thanksgiving break, so I've been his aid for 2 weeks now. It's freaking awesome, I do my homework I get from him for Calc, then I dissappear into his storage room and start trying to clean it. A couple minutes before lunch starts I walk out of the door that goes from that room to the hallway and I go down to the luch room so I don't have to deal with the lines. The best part about it is that he doesn't care that I do that. Heck, I could walk out of the door to the class room and he wouldn't say anything... actually he doesn't say anything, I know this because I do it all the time in the middle of class to put my Calc stuff in my locker. Anyway, enough about that, on to the fact the Science Olympiad started, which means that on days I have Science Olympiad, I'll be spending more than half of my school day in one classroom. Since we have a lot more people that want to be on the team this year, we actually have to work to be able to compete in the competitions. Well most of us do, there are only two of us that wanted to to Chem Lab and I am pretty much the owner of the Scrambler car, so I will be competing for sure. I'm not going to slack though, I want to get to states so I can do what boshimi336 did last year... wear a Michigan Tech shirt in East Lansing. Anyway, things look to be going well so far, even though we've only had one work day for it.

      I'll be ordering the RAM and the switch about mid-month. My Linux system isn't working as the file server it's supposed to, but I'm waiting for a switch to get that working. Otherwise I'll be waiting for what will seem to be forever as over 9 Gigs of files transfer from one computer to another on a 10Mb/s network connection with packet collision problems. Can anyone blame me for waiting?

      Oh and everyone should get a kick out of this, my dad bought me a cheap electric shaver and the little "owners manual" thing is so full sentences that make sense, but no sense at the same time it's hilarious. I'll give a few examples:

      Under "Charging"
      "Insert the special use complete set of the charger, and the indicator is on. Push the switch down and close electrical power. The charging indicator is on, which shows that it is charging, after 2 hours, charging is over."
      "Be sure the stored power is out completely before charging, which the battery can durable."
      "The shaver can be used about 7 days after shaving."

      Under "Usage"
      "Because of the function of the washable electric shaver, you can shaver with the shaving cream that the shave effect is better."
      "Charging time cannot exceed 5 hours or it affects the life of the battery, even damages the line." (Shouldn't that be under the "Charging" section)

      Under "Notes"
      "*Don't prize open the net shelter with a screw driver"
      "*Don't charge near a warmer, near or in the moisture or in the direct sunlight, for example in the car in summer" (Okay seriously, who in the heck would charge an electric razor in a car, in dirrect sunlight?!)
      "*Do take off the batteries and make a safe treatmentwhen you want to discard this utensil"

      The "manual" is a piece of paper about 3.5" by 6" and I only excluded one thing that was said from the "Charging" , "Usage", and "Notes" sections and I should have included the one I left out from the "Usage" section, but it's so long I don't want to bother typing it out. I seriously hope that this "manual" thing doesn't reflect on the quality of the product I'm going to be using on my face.

    • Been a While II

      jihp10

      Well I just realized that it's been like two weeks since I last left one of these. I think I've been neglecting this thing or something. Anyway, I'm getting sick and tired of the people in my Current Events class. I took that class to seriously keep up with current events, but I seem to be the only one in there that did. I wasn't expecting it to be a jackoff class when I signed up for it, but it turns out that it is. So, one day I said something about dreading my next class (Current Events) as I was walking out of Calculus one day and my teacher heard it and asked me what I had. I told him then he asked me if I wanted to be his aid. So, as soon as I can, I'm getting out of Current Events and becoming an aid for my Calc. and College Physics teacher. This means that I'm going to be spending half of my school day in the same room. Other than that little bump, school is going well.

      I started this on Thanksgiving, but I still haven't finished it and it's almost 4AM the next day, I'm going to bed, I'll edit it later today and add more.

      EDIT:

      Okay, well here's my continuation/completion of the journal I started yesterday. Well, I covered school, so now it's outside of school things I have to cover. First off, I am supposed to finally be getting 1 Gig of RAM for my computer since there is no way I can afford to do a major upgrade and still be able to by a laptop for college. I'm also going to be picking up a 5 port 10/100 switch, so I can stop using this 16 port 10 baseT hub, which will be really nice. Also in the world of my computer, boshimi336, being the awesome guy he is, got me two identical red LED fans for my computer. They are much more quiet and look so much better in the back of my system then the others I had did. Only one of them had red LEDs in it and the other was black, the black one is now in the front of my computer. I have to say, they have helped to drop the temp in the case nes to the CPU by a few degrees under my normal load. I have yet put it under a large load to see how it does, but I'll do that soon enough.

      In other news of my life, I've meet this really cool girl that's going to Tech next year. As much as I am going to say about this is that, she is really cool and there is possiblility that something could happen between us. So yeah, that's about all that I really have for this right now, I'll try not to abuse this journal so much and update it a little more often, even if it is a really short one entry.

    • Been a While

      I just realized that it's been a rather long time since I last updated. I'm actually not sure what all has happened in my life since I last updated. Oh wait, I have a couple of things coming back to me. To start, I found out that the foreign exchanged students were basically being abused in the houses they were living in. Thankfully they got moved out of those places and into much better places inside of the school district. One of them is even living with my Calculus/College Physics teacher. Then last Tuesday (Halloween), I went through my first round of Big Brothers Big Sisters at the middle school and one of the elementary schools. There ended up not being enough kids at the middle school, so unless some kid turns in a permission slip before next Tuesday, I won't have a middle school little. At the elementary school I still was able to meet with my little even though he didn't have a permission slip in yet, which comfuses me a bit, but oh well. He's a pretty cool kid though, so I'm looking forward to going to hang out with him again.

      Nothing really happened for the rest of that week, but Monday we had the first meeting for Science Olympiad, which is really freaking awesome. For the event that boshimi336 and I got a medal in at the state level, I'm not going to have to do a whole heck of a lot of work. The only changes they made to the event that I know of so far is that I have 2 kilograms of mass to move the car instead of one at the regional level, at states it's 1 kilogram, and 1/2 at national. For the chem. lab event I'm going ot have to do some studing. I can't remember what the topics are right now, but it's not something that we covered in AP Chem last year.

      That's about it for what has happened that I can remember. I have the rest of the week off from school because of parent teacher conferences and a teach inservice thing tomorrow. I plan on getting a lot of sleep and vegitation in this weekend, along with cleaning the bathroom that is. I might try to get some gaming worked in there too. We'll just have to see though.

    • An Update

      12 years ago

      jihp10

      It's been 12 days since I last updated, I used to do this on a weekly basis. Oh well, that doesn't matter I'm still updating. Anyway, homecoming wasn't anything in interest and I have no idea how the football team did be heck if I care anyway. The only sports that actaully in in my school are girl's basketball, vollyball, and the swim team. Well, the swim team maybe not anymore, the coach retired last year. Back to my life, I spent a majority of last Saturday at a friends birthday party. Other than the fact that a couple of people that live where the party was at there smoke, it was good. The ketch is that I've been feeling like crap since I woke up on Sunday. That and the fact that my neighbors would not keep their dogs quiet at night (they should now that my dad reported them to the company that we rent from) pretty much prevented me from being able to go to sleep until after about 1:30 or so two night in a row, just to have to wake up a 6 the next day. I've slept much better the past two nights, with the help of some NyQuil like stuff.
      On another note, randomly yesterday I just realized that I have had the means though which to hook my computer up to my tv as a second monitor for about a year of so, but just now realized it. In a nut shell, my video card has S-video, my tv doesn't, but the RF emulator I have in my room does have S-Video. I tried it and the picture quality if crap, but it's fun to play with everynow and then. Plus, I can have fun with it and freak a few people out with it if they are ever using my computer.

    • And I have no title for this one.

      12 years ago

      jihp10

      Well, it's been a while since I last updated but there hasn't been much to happen since then. One thing is that I went to an open house at Michigan Tech and got all kinds of free stuff, not to mention that I learned even more about where I'm going to further my education. What else, well I found out that I have two mutli-genre book projects due by the 20th and then just got a research project tossed on top of all of that today. (If Calculus and College Physics doesn't make my brain implode, then Honors English 12 will.) Oh yeah, somehow or another I'm taking two girls to my school's homecoming dance this Friday. One is a foreign exchange student and the other is a friend of mine. Although my friend told me that she thinks I should just take the exchange student, so I'm not sure what's going on there. Anyway, that's all I have for now. Maybe something interesting will happen and give me something worth talking about in expanse at a later time.

      Don't worry about how she found out Joe, I knew it wasn't from you even when she sprang it on me. I knew last weekend that I was caught, I just hoped against hope that I wasn't. Stupid Adam's little sister came up there, saw Reuben and I in the same bed together (all clothed and it was early after a 4:40AM fire alarm!), even tho I didn't speak, and there was nothing but the top of my head out of the covers, and still she recognized me. I thought, if she remembered/cared I would hear either:

      Nothing (she forgot, she didn't care, wasn't sure, whatever.)
      "There was a strange girl in bed with her boyfriend when I went up to Houghton Carnival weekend."
      "Rachael was in bed with Reuben."

      I ended up hearing the last of those. I knew who'd told. It would have been funny if the middle one showed up, because I would have had to pretend to be upset about it.

      After reading it, my bf freaked out and called and asked who I cheated on him with... so I guess he thought I was gonna cheat on him, something Id never do to anyone, esp not someone I love.
