      I am extremely happy right now, because my good computer has finally returned from my cousin's house, who was reformatting the HD, then installing Windows XP and a slew of other cool ass software. WEEEE!!!

      My journal is really nothing like a journal, and I know my asshole friends are going to read this and give me hell about it, but I'm going to start posting more like it's my Xanga, in which I actually talk about my life.

      So, with that, here's what's happened with me lately:

      I've started playing the trumpet again after about 1 1/2 years of not playing, and it feels pretty cool. I still remember everything, I just need to get my tone and lip control back(you need strong lip muscles to play high notes on trumpet). Also, I have only posted about my girlfriend, Becca, in my Xanga, safe from my friend's eyes, but I'm now going to babble about her in here. Prepare yourself.
      School is starting to get on my nerves. Probably because I've been staying up late playing Halo 2, and haven't gotten enough sleep, so I haven't been able to perform my best at school. But schoolwork isn't the only thing pissing me off. Obviously, I'm a nerd, and as such, I'm harassed, physically, verbally, and seemingly conastantly, mostly by the people in the same class as me(the class of '08). I feel like If I were only born a year earlier or later, I would've fit in better. My study hall teacher even said herself that our class was the most stuck up, egotistic, etc. class she had ever seen, and she's been teaching for 7 years. GRAH! I feel like my true friends are the ones I have in Virginia(for the non-Americans in here that don't know, Virginia borders with Maryland). That's where Becca lives, and I just wish I could move there and get out of this rat-infested hellhole called Rockville.

    • 'Twas the Night Before Christmas

      I found this on HBO:

      'Twas the night before Christmas, when all o'er the front
      Not a creature was stirring, not even a Grunt;
      The ammo was laid by the shotguns with care,
      In hopes that the Master Chief soon would be there;
      The soldiers were huddled all cold in their nests,
      Protected by nothing but bulletproof vests;
      And Sarge with his rifle and oddly-marked cap,
      Had just settled down for a quick power nap,
      When out on the field there arose such a clatter,
      I sprang from my post to see what was the matter.

      Away to the window I flew like a flash
      Saw fires and explosions and heard a great crash.
      The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
      Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below,
      When, what to my eyes should appear on the scene,
      But a Scorpion tank, and four well-armed Marines,
      With a powerful driver, so lively, you see;
      I knew in a moment it must be MC.
      More rapid than eagles his soldiers they came,
      And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name:

      Now, Jenkins! Bisenti! Mendoza and Dubbo!
      Let's show these Marines how to give Covies trouble!
      To the top of the ramp! to the top of the wall!
      Now fire away! fire away! fire away all!
      As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
      When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky,
      So up to the house-top the soldiers they flew,
      With the Scorpion tank, and the Master Chief too.
      And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
      The panicked retreating of Covenant hoof.
      As I drew in my hand, and was turning around,
      from a hole in the roof MC came with a bound.

      He was dressed all in green, from his head to his foot,
      And his armor was tarnished with ashes and soot;
      A shotgun and ammo he flung on his back,
      And he looked like a wrestler just layin' da smack.
      The Grunts--how they cowered! The Jackals did tremble!
      Elites were mowed over, but Hunters assembled!
      The Chief aimed his pistol like Willy Tell's bow,
      And the blood of the Hunters stained new-fallen snow;

      A frag grenade thrown hit a Grunt in the teeth,
      And the smoke it encircled the Chief like a wreath;
      Though struck in the face and three times in the belly,
      He shook, laughed it off, then turned Covies to jelly.
      The Chief beat the Elites, he made Covenant yield,
      But I yelled when I saw more charge in from the field;
      A click of his gun and a twist of his head,
      Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread;

      He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
      And riddled the Covies; then turned with a jerk,
      And having defeated his alien foes,
      And leaping up high, to the rooftop he rose;
      He sprang to his tank, to his team gave a whistle,
      And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
      But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,
      "Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!"

      So, what do you want for Christmas? Here's my list:

      FA-MAS F1 airsoft gun with battery, charger, and 400fps upgrade
      Star Wars trilogy DVD box set

      Man, I love Halo 2. I've set up a little Halo shrine in my room, which I'll post pics of as soon as I find our digital camera. And my little Halo religion is comming nicely, too.

      I'm sitting at the community rec center(I'm now a volunteer here), and my job is to make sure people sign in, and when it's buisy, kick people off after 1/2 hour. And I kick people off for doing bad things. Anyway, I just signed this kid in, and from the right angle, he looks like Gus. Cool, yes?

      So, today in school, I found out that this photography teacher lets people stay in his room after school and play Halo 2, so naturally, I had to check it out. It was awesome. I got my first Killtacular ever, and it felt so special. Yeah, most of the people there were just mediocre players, so I easily handed their asses to them on a platter. Except when we played Headlong. I do so despise Headlong. Anyway, that was with eight people, and I'm taking my Xbox tomorrow, but I'm not sure how we can connect them. Possibly through the school's LAN...*strokes chin*...Ok, it's late, I need to get to bed. Farewell, my friends, and Forerunners be with you!

      After a long time of having no religion, then being athiest, then agnostic, then having no religion again, I have finally found my true calling. I call it...Halo-ism, in which you don't worship a god, you worship the Forerunners. Basically like the Covenant religion, but no blind worship, because ignorance sucks. Well, my randomness for the day is done. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. Well, unless you're Canadian(sorry, crimsonclad, I just couldn't resist).

      So, by now, everybody has Halo 2. It's freakin' awesome. Although, I thought the story campaign was too short. Anyway, one thing that was so great about Halo was rounding up a few of your buddies and having a LAN party. Over the weekend, I had my first Halo 2 LAN. This is my story.

      The whole schpiel was at my friend Tristan's house, who is also a gamer and has two younger brothers who play Xbox, too. Another friend, Patrick, came who has a PS2, but we don't hold that against him. Now, yes, that is only 5 people, but it was still really fun. Me and my two friends had been playing Halo 2 multiplayer since I got it on tuesday, so we had already played on all of the maps. We started out playng team slayer, then fooled around with the different gametypes. We discovered that perhaps one of the best gametypes ever is either sniper rifles or rockets on Headlong. Seriously, try it. It's fun. There were two hilarious moments over the weekend, both involving Tristan's little brothers. The first was when the younger brother randomly proclaimed, "I'm an Indian lady!" to which I said, "What??" Then, Patrick said, "You heard him, he's an Indian lady!" I guess it was one of those you had to be there moments. That became a continuous joke throughout the whole weekend. The second wave of funny came when a Warthog was destroyed, and the older brother of Tristan's said, "Hey look, it's a battery!" I glanced at his screen and said to him, "Elijah, that's a muffler." My mom wanted me to go home at 9:00, so I just stayed overnight. The next day, Tristan's family was helping to clear junk out from his gandmother's new house, in which there was a 52" widescreen TV. *drools* Of course, we played on it after cleaning the house. Well, I had a lot of fun, and the new Blood Gulch is awesome. So, as a testimate to the new hotness of Halo 2, here's my favorite sarge (Johnson, not the red guy) quotes:
      "Dear humanity, we regret being alien bastards. We regret coming to Earth. And we most certainly regret that the corps just blew up our raggety ass fleet!" "Hoo-rah!"
      "When I joined the Marines, all we got were sticks. Two sticks and a rock. For the whole platoon. And we had to share the rock! You are one lucky soldier!"..."Thanks for the tank. He never gets me anything." "Oh, I know what the ladies like."
