Ah, the week of weeks. Next week will most likely be better though. Brad is coming to visit and BBR is coming back as well! It'll be a ton of fun!
Until then, I have exams. Well, just one, tomorrow morning, anyhoot. I think I'll make it. BBR is gonna bake some cakes and stuff when she gets here next week and Brad is gonna hit up some GGX2 action with us. This should prove to be fun stuff indeed. When I've got more to say, I'll make another entry.
This entry was typed on a keyboard far superior to yours (most likely anyway)

Ah, twas a good weekend ths far. Friday was Valentine's Day. BBR came to visit me. Needless to say, I was quite happy. She baked me a cake and in the icing it said 'Will you go out with me?' Also needless to say, I said 'hell yeah'. So that made my year.
We (Glenn and I) picked up GGX2 and we've been hitting that, replacing our "breather time" with "GGX2 2P vs. mode time" That is also crazy fun.
It wasn't all good though. On friday I was running a MUD workshop but no one showed up for it. About 8 promised they'd be there, but only one of those showed so it was really sucky. I didn't take it personally since it WAS Valentine's Day and it was a Friday. But, oh well. I'm not running anymore workshops until a small group of people need help.
I guess there's not much else to say so I'm gonna go to bed. I have a MUD meeting at 2pm today anyway. 'til next time kids, hang out, be cool, stay in school.

Whew.. I'm lucky to be outta THAT class!
I was enrolled for an upper-division philosophy class with, who I heard was, the most boring philsophy professor on campus (SOURCE: last semester's phi teacher Mr. Aleks Pj.) Anyhow, I went to the philsophy department today, recalling that I needed to pick up a packet for this class, but when I arrived I decided to go for a different approach, as I was currently taking 19 credits and could afford to dump a class. I greeted the lady at the desk. The conversation went as follows:
Me: "Hello *look at title on door* Mrs. Brewer, I am here to speak with you about possibly removing a class from my schedule. Now I know the last day for add/drop was tuesday but I just arrived back on campus this weekend and don't have internet access from home. I was bed-ridden the whole weekend with a mild case of food poisoning and Dr. Mom.."
Mrs. Brewer: "Oh, your mother is a doctor?"
Me: "Yes, she took good care of me and dropped me back off this morning."
Mrs. Brewer: "You poor thing, so here,.." *hands me a piece of paper* "..put you name and ID on the top and the name of the class and the professor at the bottom."
Me: "Thank you so much."
Mrs. Brewer: "Are you a philosophy major?"
Me: "No, actually I'm pre-med, I want to follow in my mother's footsteps" *fake blush*
Mrs. Brewer: "Aww, that's soo sweet, I'm sure your mother must really love you."
Me: "She does, as long as I get good grades and take care of what I have to, she's _very_ supportive of everything I do. I'm really glad to have her as a mom."
Mrs. Brewer: "You're such a good kid. I wish more of the students who came in here were like you."
Me: *fake blush* "Nah, I'm just doing what I have to do, it's no big deal" *hand back the slip*
Mrs. Brewer: "Thank you *looks at paper* Steven (me: *grr* in head) I'll take care of this right away for you. Feel better."
Me: *fake cough/grunt* "Thank you Mrs. Brewer. I'll try" *fake smile* "Have a nice day!"
Mrs. Brewer: "You too hun"
Now, for all of you people who know me irl, you know that is the biggest load of bullshit I've ever spat out. For those of you who don't know me, ask the people who know me and they'll explain just which parts are crap. (Although it's mostly just all of it. I also recommend checking the archives for a few hints, they might help).
Anyhow, I'm glad now. The breakdown for the week is much more well-rounded now. Here's what it looks like in general:
Monday: 3 class
Tuesday/Thursday: 2 class
Wednesday: 2 classes
Friday: 1 class (over at 2pm)
This weekend I'll be heading home to see Boobula Blythe Rue and the Phrex-Phrex kitty-kitty, and maybe even Mysty Bamboo-Shoots. I also get my new computer this weekend, you know, the one I con'd my mom into purchashing for me on top of the new car I didn't and would never ask for. Well, that's the way the cookie crumbles. As much as I hate being spoiled, I take advantage of it as often as I can.
BBR's aunt told me one thing that's always stuck with me:
"Grey, milk your mother for all she's worth while you still can.." but it didn't end.. "So when you marry Blythe, you'll both be better off cuz all her life, she's gotten the short end of the stick." I just sort of nodded, and it didn't take effect right away, but nowadays, with college and all and being away from home, I've come to realize just how inspiration those words have become. I've changed as a person, my friends know that. Right now, I'm how I always wanted to be and I have a lot of fun being this way so today I'm gonna stand up, hold my head high, equip my headphones and headbang while listening to TOOL, ALL the way to class and I don't care who sees me or thinks I'm fuct up because I can do what I want today. And tomorrow. And so can you. Be cool. Toodles

I had a great time this weekend. Blythe came to visit and we have a lot of fun! In other news, Glenn is dying of the plague, Mike18 is ok from the other night of hard partying, Kristin and I are cool again, I met a new chick named Suj (really cool), and Greg is still a shut-in.
I guess not much changes around here. I do have a lot more reading to do this semester as I am enrolled in three philosophy classes each having absolutely nothing to do with eachother. The class I like the most, 'Existentialism' has some solid literature supporting the lectures. Problem is, the lecture hall sucks. It's in an old recital room in the shape of a box that has horrid acoustics and one small 'flip-and-write' green chalkboard that fits about 5 sentences of notes which then has to be erased for more notes. I don't think I'm going to learn much in that class so today I finished reading Nietzsches "The Gay Science". It is badly structured for a book, for philosophically speaking, it mostly flows together toward the theme of dissecting people's traits and personalities. I wouldn't recommend it for engineers, Muslims, or Roman women.
Not much happens here at Sto Bro, for if there was more activity, I might post here more often. And here you were thinking 'Hey, maybe he doesn't update his blog often because he's so busy.' Well, you're wrong buddy. Anyhow, shout outs to Xerlic, Blythe, Psionimoe, Kaa, and Azhure.
