So, tomorrow is the annual time when I can’t go on tumblr because I’ll be in the middle of the woods. It also marks me getting close to the time when I first made my tumblr, although I don’t remember the exact day that was. two years. And when I think back on it, they’ve been a fairly eventful two years. College, crushes, loss, new friends, new experiences… if feels...
Getting Ready To Camp
So in a few days I’ll be going on the annual camping trip. I’m really excited for it, in part because it recalls so many memories of me finding myself but also the potential for all sorts of new memories.
I was tasked with getting my own dinner tonight, and so I decided to go to a diner. Obviously not the one that was so near and dear to my heart, as that one is now closed. I actually kind of found the experience sort of sad. It wasn’t the diner where I had had so many memories. I couldn’t look at a table and say, “That’s where I got milkshakes after prom,” or,...
Didn’t really do anything today either. Tomorrow I have work though, so I guess that’ll be productive. Plus I have to get myself dinner. Maybe I’ll go to a diner?
Alright, so, today I hung out with a couple of friends and we geocached. We actually found a ton, and they were easy to find. It’s weird because now I know the location of several geocaches that are just sitting around all over my town. I think the total count in our area just from this one guy is like 39, but we didn’t even go looking for that many. Anyway, after that we hung out...
I really didn’t do much of anything today, which is… nice, really. I saw Iron Man 3, that’s about it. I’ll be going camping soon, definitely excited about that. But yeah, definitely a do-nothing day.
Pop Shop and Windows
So today was my first day back from work. It went relatively smoothly, only one crazy lady but I understood why she was upset. It wasn’t our fault, Verizon was lazy and miscounted the things they received, but it wasn’t her fault either so I did sor tof feel bad for her, not that I could really help. After work I went to the pop shop with some friends, had some good food, and then we...
Today was pretty lazy; woke up, shaved, got a haircut in preparation for work tomorrow. I also went to a friend’s house and there were a few people there, we just talked and had a good time. It was nice, this was the sort of night I missed.
So this morning I presented my animation. Everything went fairly well, I mean it wasn’t the best film there but it was the best animation and there were a few films that were so awful it was embarrassing. You know how after a film or something everyone claps or whatever? One girl had a film so bad no one even clapped. Anyway, I’m home now, and I’m just glad to be back. I really...
Twenty Minute Final
So the only thing I had to do today was take a final, and it only lasted 20 minutes. So today was pretty much the first stress free day I’ve had in a long time. It felt nice. Tomorrow is my last day at NJIT. I’m just glad to be going home, this summer should prove to be amazing.
I just finished my animation. I still have my IT project left, but I have an extension on that, so I have room to breathe. They only thing elft before me now before I return home is my astronomy final. I feel like Frodo after destroyed the ring. It’s gone, it’s done. Yes, Mr. Martin, it’s over now.
Only 10 seconds left to go in my animation!!! And they should be an easy 10 seconds to make!!! Oh man, I can see the light at the end of tunnel!!! I shouldn’t get ahead of myself but actually being able to finish this project after being so stressed about it is the greatest feeling in the world.
Slow and Steady
Well, I got my history take-home final done today, and since I have the extension on IT that means all I need to worry about right now is my animation, and thank God I’m actually a little tiny bit ahead of schedule, I have only the slightest bit of breathing room. I still feel the pressure though, this week has been exhausting, both mentally and physically.
A Good Day At Last
Today was amazing for two reasons: I got the extension I needed for my IT project because that professor adores me, I literally have all summer to work on it. Also, I completed my objective of 120 frames for today. In fact, I got 140 or so frames, plus the couple I did on that one day I did a few extra. I’m ahead of schedule and now 50% done my project.
I Just Don't Know
I think I’m going to ask for an extension for my IT project. I was hoping to just get it done today but I was only able to get maybe like 10% of it done, and that’s after a full day of working! I’m fucking screwed guys. The stress is making me feel physically sick. This is awful.
So It Begins
I got another 3 seconds of my animation done, I could have gotten more but I spent time today studying for my Structures Final as well as sleeping. Ugh… not looking forward to these finals, I feel like I don’t really know anything. This whole semester has been strange. At least all of these huge projects are starting to give me a better work ethic, goodness knows I’ll need it for...
Well, I finally reached my goal for today’s work, at 5:45 in the morning… I now have 11 seconds of my animation, which I guess makes me feel a little better. 11 being a lot of seconds, even though I’m still 49 seconds short. So I need to spend the next week doing that, and working on my IT project, and history papers. God help me.
I am really freaked out by the amount of work ahead of me. Like, super freaked out. I don’t know how I’ll be able to get everything done in time, and everything has super high priority. At least today I was productive. I now have just under 4 seconds of my animation done. Too bad it’s a minute long…
Alright, so, I got a paper out of the way, that’s something. I felt awful this morning, likely a result of yesterdays celebrations. I should drink more water…
Oh Jeez Procrastination
Oh man, I procrastinated so much today, it’s awful, which means tomorrow will be awful because I have to get work done for monday. At least I got my cinco de mayo partying out of the way today?
Man, I am just doing everything in my power to...
Things I accomplished today; laundry. I really really wanted some general Tso’s chicken, but the chinese food place that delivers no longer has working phones, it would seem. This means no general tso’s chicken for me. Had to go to subway and get a sandwich I didn’t really want. Well, I mean, I didn’t have to, but I was hungry. Tomorrow I will dedicate to creating my...
Waste the Day
I pretty much decided to waste today. All I did was sleep, play Civilization, and work on stuff for my D&D campaign. I was inspired because I had made a Civ 5 map of my D&D world and then let it run for a few centuries, just to see what would happen. I decided not to mimic what the computer had happen in Civ 5 because some of the nations acted very uncharacteristically, but it did get my...
A Little Rest
Today may or may not have been the last day of my radioshow, if not then it’s next week. It went pretty well, I actually got six listeners which at the tie was the record for the day. I wish I could see who my listeners are. I played a couple of songs that I actually only just heard and fell in love with. Music is wonderful.
What am I Doing
Why do I stay up so late? I’m just going to regret it in the morning. Ugh. I just want summer to get here so my sleep schedule can maybe begin to fix itself?
So I just finished a presentation about Tom Snyder, creator of such TV shows as Dr. Katz, and Home Movies. Apparently a John Benjamin fan too, the guy shows up in pretty much every show Snyder makes. It has to be 10 minutes long, I just hope I’m able to drag it out that long…
I did actually get some work done today. Looked for some specific virtual structural elements for my structures class, which actually proved challenging, as one structure in particular seemed nowhere to be found. We did sort of find an example in the end though, which is good. I just spent the last few minutes reading all about extinct languages, particularly celtic ones. I don’t really know...
So, I meant to get work done today, but instead I spent most of my time watching episodes of Star Trek and skyping with my girl friend. Well worth it, I guess, but tomorrow is going to be awful.
Well, I did get some work done today, but not anywhere near as much as I wanted and only after a lot of procrastination. I really have to make up for it tomorrow…
Today I felt really accomplished because I made eggs in a basket and it was delicious. Now, I didn’t actually do anything productive today, which I should have, besides going to honors theater night to see a production of Tartuffe, but making delicious food entirely on my own is such a rewarding experience.
My wisdom teeth have actually starting hurting, which is bad, because I’m in school. I mean, luckily school is almost over, but in the meantime, ouch! My mouth is pretty sore. Also, holy shit do I need to fix my sleep schedule
Sorry I didn’t post last night, I ended up pulling an all nighter. I was working on my storyboard for my animation class. It was worth it though, because my professor definitely approved. But I’ve had a long day. I watched Akira again, that movie, man, people ought to study that film the way people study famous novels. It just does so many things right.
Not Doing Work
Things I should have done today: work Things that didn’t really get done today: work
No, not the two bombers, I mean Two Brothers pizza, which is what I had for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I really didn’t do anything today, I just hung out in one of my friends room. It was a good time though.
Open Mic and Aziz
Ok, so yesterday I drove to Delaware, napped while my Girlfriend was at class and then went to a public speaking competition she was in. After that was done we went to go see Aziz Ansari!! I thought he was really funny, there was, maybe 40% material I had heard before but there was enough new stuff to keep it hysterical. Today we woke up, I slept while she had class, and then we went to...
Let’s see, what did I do today… I woke up, tried to make some eggs. They didn’t come out right, but I ate them anyway. I really need to learn how to properly cook eggs. Went to class, took a nap, went to an Honors Social Committee meeting, hung around outside with friends on the green and played instruments, packed up, went home, and just lounged around. Tomorrow I go to...
So I didn’t really do all that much today. I have a final project for video and animation coming up which I recorded the audio for, its one of my friends telling a story from their childhood. I got several different stories and I don’t know which one I’ll use yet, but hopefully whatever it is I create as the final product will be good.
Hearts and Minds
I watched a film in my film class today that I thought was really eye-opening. It was a documentary about the Vietnam war, and it went into everything. They interviewed soldiers who supported the war, soldiers who were against it, soldiers who were just in pain, soldiers in the war, generals, policy makers, South Vietnamese politicians, and Vietnamese, and all of these interviews, by the way, are...
I’ve had a lot of sushi lately. I filed my taxes today, I got sushi with my family and it was delicious. I could probably eat that sushi everyday if I got the chance. Now I’m back at school and staying up late.
Had a great visit with my girlfriend these past two days. I went down to her university and hung out. Today we got lunch, played volley ball,and then we heard we would be able to see the aurora borealis because of a solar flare so we went to the top of this reservoir that had a great view, and then we had a picnic in the dark with some sushi and we just cuddled under the stars for awhile, it was...
I think the relationship between my parents has some serious flaws, actually, I would go so far as to say their relationship with my brother has some serious flaws as well. It seems like everyone is always angry, everything always has to be a fight. Its ridiculous. I’ve kind of managed to stay out of it by being away at college and because I just tend not to get too emotionally invested in...
Civilization is Addicitng
Seriously, all I did today is play that game. And now it’s nearly 6 AM. Holy shit.
So I missed my first class this morning because either my alarm never went off or because I slept through it, I’m not sure which. It’s just really frustrating because I didn’t want to sleep in, I wanted to go to class.
Two in a Row
Two all nighters in a row, jeez. At least I can actually sleep tonight, since my class isn’t until 11:30. I think it’s weird how my tumblr has become so… boring, compared to how it was when i first started it. I used to post deep really long rambling posts about my thoughts about life, and now what do I say? That I stayed up late and am tired? Is that what my life has become?
Alright, so, I just finished making this flash version of frogger for my IT class. It’s kind of silly because of the voice work and art, if any of you want to play it I can send the .swf file (your browser can play it, don’t worry) your way.I did end up pulling an all nighter, but it’s a satisfying all nighter because I just recreated Frogger, and because I actually got done 3...
Man, I am just not a productive guy on weekends. Or really any day, I guess. I should really work on my work ethic. I always finding myself just letting things pile up and then plowing through them all in one night. I don’t even know why this has actually worked for me for as long as it has. By all rights I should probably be failing out of college. And yet here I am, honors student, high...
I went to a frat party today, I don’t really understand why I ever bother to go to them. They’re always over crowded, loud, kind of douchey people, and the music isn’t good and beer is mostly water. What’s the point? Why do I ever bother to go? I’ll never know.
I woke up at 6 PM today, my god. Also, I shaved off my beard. A lot of people were actually very upset with this decision. But its for the best. THis way my girlfriend doesn’t have to worry about it and I was actually in the bad habit of pulling out hairs which would have ruined it in the long run. So I guess in a way I had to kill the beard to save it.
So I spent all of last night working on a flash project. It’s actually pretty rewarding, because flash is the real deal. Anyway, tomorrow I’m shaving off my beard. Its time has come. It may return one day, but I think I’m done with it for now.
Oh my God, I finally did it, I finally finished working on the pantheon for my D&D world. I feel so much closer to being done now. It’s funny how I’m kind of living the life of an 80s nerd, working on D&D stuff, watching star trek. But, hey, things seem to be going pretty well for me right now, so that’s something.
Today I woke up early for church, where there were a lot of kids who just didn’t know when to be quiet (and I’m talking about kids who are old enough to talk.) After church I packed up to go back to school, and then my family went to NYC to visit my Grandmother. There, we visited my Grandfather’s grave, and we ended up getting dinner at this diner where I feel like we were...
