      Winter has its ok parts, but all in all it just gets too damn depressing. I've got school and a girlfriend and I should be happy, but it is just hard somedays...

      Even though I don't think Karma on RT doesn't play much of a role anymore, I'm going to dedicate this journal to the 27 Club. Especially- Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, and Kurt Cobain. Each of these people have had their own unique touch to the world and will be greatly missed and appreciated.

    • This is the Journal Title

      This is where I put my journal entry, and maybe talk about something interesting, or something about me. I should stick to writing in this journal, and stay away from creating topics in the forum. I should have read the rules, because I made a decent journal topic, not a good forum topic. Meh, I know now. I'll just stick to typing random stuff in here, even though I doubt anyone will really read this. This has gone on way to long, and I should quit and go to bed.

    • Hello new memory...

      10 years ago

      rotors08

      So I upgraded my computers memory, from 2gb to 4gb, and it seems to work ok. My computer does load faster, but not as much as I thought it would....I'm not real sure, but i think the next thing to do would be getting a different processer, or motherboard..whatever you want to call it. I'm not really the best with specs, or numbers, I just know how to install things on my computer. Still kind of a geek, but not totally...more like a gee...

      Finally went snowboarding for the first time this winter...had a blast, and no injuries too, which is pretty rare.

      Due to the recent snowfall in the south I have heard numerous incidents on the news because of the little snow they recieved....here are some friendly tips for dealing with winter...if you can add more feel free to help smiley1.gif

      -DO: slow down
      -DON'T: it's only snow, not a nuclear fall out, so don't freak out.
      -DO: practice driving in the snow in an open area. example: learning how far it takes for your car to stop, practice getting out of spins, accelerating without spinning the tires, what speed is correct for taking corners...
      -DON'T: practice taking corners by e-braking and hitting a stop-sign
      -DO: pay attention to the roads, icy-roads can take the appearance of a wet road.
      -DON'T: don't do a 200 ft. burnout in your car in the snow, most people aren't impressed, and in these conditions a Geo can do the same.
      -DO: leave plenty of space between any vehicles near your car.
      -DON'T: don't overcorrect when losing control, usually ends up making it worse, and if you are going to go into the ditch try to ease your car if possible, don't try to fight going in, turning your wheel sharply the opposite direction increases your chances of rolling.
      -DO: give snowplows plenty of room, and always pass them slowly.
      -DON'T: don't cut in front of snowplows, they are large vehicles with a giant snow blade attached, a vehicle getting hit with one of those usually isn't classified as a vehicle anymore.

    • Snow in the south makes me laugh...

      10 years ago

      rotors08

      When the south states get snow they tend to freak out...nevermind they do freak out. i think this is hilarious. a whole 6 inches of snow and everything shuts down, i bet schools in the south close when there is a layer of frost on the ground...ok maybe not, but come on! In minnesota, heck most of the states in the midwest, it takes a lot more than a few inches of snow to grind everything to a stop. try a foot, and even then it's only the schools that close, usually everyone continues on with their day. try going through a 3 foot (not sarcasm) snowdrift with a '91 Honda civic on your way to work, it's quite a lot of fun.

      Minnesota usually has a good snowfall on the ground by Thanksgiving, but defo not this year. I'm not one to really enjoy driving in the snow, and I'm not real big on the whole cold thing....no...I do like the snow for one certain reason....snowboarding!! Hells yeah!.........maybe i won't break my tailbone this year...and fall off the ski lift....

      Yo! I was thinking about what you said about getting discouraged from writing and I have some suggestions:

      1. Voice recorder. Dictate when you feel creative, type and edit later.
      2. Read lots of other people's stuff. I'm currently smashing through Katherine Mansfield's short story collection as well as selected poems for uni and I'm finding all these useful tricks writers use to lure in, shock, throw off, convict, etc.
      3. Talk to strangers. Ask about their lives. Old people are the best because they have an abundance of stories to tell. Stories of love, loss, rivalry, hardship, stuff that really hits home with people.

      Good luck with story writing. I wanna see what you come up with smiley13.gif

      Good to hear things are ok for you, and good luck with that transfer, I would hate to have to do that.

      If I have to, I will. I'm trying to stay out of DHS as much as possible because the amount of bureaucracy and politics they have to deal with is the biggest headache of all time. If I can I'd like to pick up an intelligence analyst position with either an agency outside DHS or one thats in but the branch is away from DC. However, there aren't a lot of entry positions for that so I'm guessing I need to get an internship completed first before I can do anything.

      Things are going ok, ran into a couple snags but things look like they are ok now. Everything seems to be fine, but I'm still pretty nervous about trying to get a job in the next few months.

      How are you doing?

      Congrats being the FU today! Say, where do you live in Coon Rapids? I have some family who live somewhat behind the movie theater and some that live a little west of NorthTown mall.


      I live right by the boarder to Blaine, more like....5 blocks away from Blaine Highschool, so yeah that's pretty much where I live. So your family lives right by the AMC theater and Northtown, I have a few friends that used to live by those area's myself so I have a good idea what your talking about.

      Well its all about finding the job you like. For me I still get that feeling whenever I see a plane go by but I've realized that its a cool thought but not something I'd want to do full time. Maybe its that way for you too, if not and you really want to still fly, then go out and do it :P

      Ah man, that sucks. Hopefully that will work out for you. Alternative options are getting some ratings on your own while looking for a place with a better degree. Or you can just join the military and they'll pay to teach you to fly (providing you make the cut of course). I dropped out of flight training because it was too expensive and I found that I enjoyed the freedom of it the most and making it a job took all that out of it for me.

      oh the graphic tablet... mine retails for about $800, but I got it off ebay for $250. But it works just as good as the one I bought for $75. Just this one is tougher and survives moving around and knocks and spills and such.

      what kind how much that sketch pad you use costs?


      I'm not sure how much they cost. ten bucks or so. I get the nice hard cover ones. makes it easier to draw where ever you want and you should bring it everywhere with you.
