      Century has gone by since I posted a journal. Oh, and apparently something else has a major anniversary today. What could it be?

      Minnesota. I got accepted to The University of Minnesota- Twin Cities on November 1st, 2011. I had planned to visit Minneapolis that weekend, so it felt really good about not having to worry if I would get in.The school is right by down town and I love it. I don't know if I will love it during the bitter as piss winters but I'm 99% sure that I will be attending UMN. If you love one-way streets, Minneapolis is the place for you to worship single direction traffic movements. Looks like I'm going to be a Golden Gopher. 20070702211827!GoldyGopher.png

    • The List Has...

      Been narrowed down. I took UCF and UGA off my list because there is no way I'm going to even be able to pay for them. I got accepted to Arkansas and Houston and I'll know if I get into FSU on December 14th. Minnesota will tell me by the end of February. Minnesota is now my number one because it's the best school that I can get in for the least amount of money and I have 21 credits guaranteed from my AP scores so far. If I pass all of my exams this year I'll have 38 going into the U of M. FSU stays on the list just so I can know if I could in.

      The first quarter is over and I got "A's" in all of my classes except for Algebra III where I got a B. Work has been good. I know that I need to update my journal more, but I do tweet semi-often. Follow me at twitter.com/thaskizz

    • Now I Am...

      A senior in high school. I just finished up my first week and to be honest it was both overwhelming and a bit of a pain in the ass. Having a job and school takes up most of my free time and now I'm working in some sort of capacity from the time I wake up (between 6 and 7) to about 8:30 at night. It takes a lot out of you, especially when you have four AP classes at the same time. And that doesn't include all the ancillary shit like theater, clubs, and college applications.

      My Class Schedule is as follows:

      AP Human Geography This and Anatomy are probably the easiest academic classes that I have. I love geography and I love the teacher.

      Anatomy & Physiology Easy teacher and a pretty good class.

      Performance and Directing A.K.A Drama IV Easiest class in my schedule

      AP English Literature & Composition. A lot of poetry will be analyzed in this fucker.

      AP Psychology Not too bad but a lot of reading and note taking is required.

      AP European History. Taught by my favorite teacher.

      Algebra III. I hate math.

      The colleges that have made it onto my list that I'm applying to are

      University of Minnesota
      University of Houston
      Florida State
      University of Central Florida
      University of Georgia
      University of Arkansas

      The only schools that I could realistically be attending are Minnesota, Arkansas, and Houston. I'd rather not go to Arkansas since it's 30 miles down the road and would basically be high school part two. I consider it to be my ultimate fallback.

      Houston is on the list because it's in a big city and it's relatively cheap compared to other out of state schools. An above average student like myself is automatically granted up to $7,500 in scholarship money and (possibly) in state tuition because of that scholarship.

      Minnesota is on there because it's the best school that my family could realistically pay for. With out of state tuition only $5,000 more than in state and it has cost of attendance that's roughly $29,000. The only down side is that it's really fucking cold in Minneapolis during the winter. Other than that it's near perfect.

      FSU and UCF I could get into but couldn't possibly pay $36,000 a year to go to. UGA is the toughest of all of them to get into and it costs $40,000 a year.

      If money was no object I'd go to Florida Sate. I plan to study Political Science. Looks like I'll be taking out federal student loans in order to help pay for college. I apologize to anyone that watches me for no updating this enough and if I came across as whiny about college.

      Also I neglected to mention that my fourth anniversary passed on the site on my brother's birthday. He's 23 now and he's now engaged. He will be getting married the week after my graduation.

      To all 6 of my watchers,

      Where did you apply to college? Which one did you choose to attend? If you could have gone back and changed anything about the application process what would have it been?

      I'm going to be paying $16 a month now for Netflix. I'd be fine with the six dollar price increase if they were to enable their entire catalog to be streamed but 16 dollars a month for 1 DVD out at a time and unlimited streaming? Fuck you Netflix.

      I spent 5 semesters studying Photoshop in school. I therefore have no idea about "crash course" tutorials.

      There are some decent books out there. Maybe hit a book store and look for ones that have screencaps for every step. If I need to do something I am not familiar with, I just google what it is want to do.

      I think Algerians are just like French people, or members of any nation -- there are cool people with whom I want to hang, and some I'd rather avoid.

      France annexed the principality of Algiers in eighteen-hundred-something, and as a result, a lot of pain and suffering took place. We tried to build an infra-structure there, schools, libraries, and some argue that we taught Algerians how to kick us out by introducing them to Marx and the revolution cell-system. Personally, I don't believe in imperialism -- meaning, I don't think it pays off in the short, or the long term. There's a lot of people in my generation that feel the same way, and I think we do best with what we've been handed.

      Many countries participated in the liberation of France. I am grateful to each and every one -- America, Britain, Canada, and of course there are many other unmentioned countries and unsung heroes in that conflict, and I am grateful to them, and to Algerians, Moroccans, Berbers, and other members of North African countries who put their lives on the line.

      PHP is the language I code in. It's also already built into Mac OS X, though I've never taken advantage of that, I just code directly to the remote FTP servers.

      I never got TechTV here in England. I've been watching Diggnation for about a year or two now, and I got into The Totally Rad Show very soon after I attended the London Diggnation taping and they mentioned "The TRS guys are here", so I checked it out after the show and loved it. I'm also a fan of Revision3's PixelPerfect.
