"In a sky full of people, only some want to fly"

I am done!! Thank you very much indeed. Exams are over, and now I can look forward to 3 months of sheer relaxation. It wasn't that bad at all actually, I'm quite pleased with how I went. But then again, results are still a month away, but hopefully I'll have done damn well, considering the amount of work I put in.

The other has departed, and he shall be having a grand time. I hope to be joining him sometime soon, so we can ham it up overseas and get up to all sorts of mischief.

Well as mentioned, I'm now on holidays, so you can expect the blog entries to be a lot more frequent. Mmm, bloggy goodness, haha!

Today was day 1 of return to extreme fitness regime. It's only ever implemented in the holidays, because I am usually just sitting around all day, so it keeps me active, and stops me turning into a blob. Ahhh, I managed to complete it, but I am in sooo much pain!! Ouchies!! Oh well, it'll get better after a few days of repetition.

I found THEEE coolest jacket ever. The Brainiac host Richard Hammond wears it most of the time, and I'm going to purchase it next week, it looks so damn cool!!! I am twiddling my thumbs in anticipation.

I think it's hell-arious how all the different faculties/schools think their way of thinking is the guiding light of society. Law - without law, we're a society of nothing. Economics - where would we be without it? Science - it's the mother of everything, without it, nothing exists. So on and so forth. That's the problem with the world. It's a clash of ideologies these days. A paradigm shift is perhaps the hardest thing a person can ever emotionally go through, so obviously, it's not easy - if not even possible to change people's perceptions and opinions on such a base value/belief.

By the way, I've enabled the option for a word verification on comments, this was done in order to stop spam comments, which are absolutely horrendous. Damn you advertising people, you've gone too far!!! The other knows all about their evil ways, so I'll leave it to him to fill you in later on.

In most major religions, there is a concept of judgement day. Where humanity is resurrected and they are judged on their good deeds, weighed against their sins as the basis for whether they get into heaven or not. On that day, there are no secrets, and everybody learns everything about everyone's life. If you think about it, what would the possible repercussions be?! People will find out if they've been screwed over by those close to them and other like things. Would there even be a point for heaven if such devastating things like that are out in the open? Who knows? Not I! And that's it for today.

Have a nice day folks!!

Big trips are flip for nozzle korg

So here's the breakdown. My next two exams are on the 17th, which gives me a whole lot of nothing to do between then. Both exams are sighted, so I know what's coming, and I've prepped for it, so I have nothing to worry about. One exam is one hour, so it won't be too much of a stretch, and it's just basic essay format. It's on legal theory too, and my specialty is post-modern law, and I could pass that with a blindfold on. The other one is a three hour exam, essay format, 3 q's. For the first time ever, we get allowed notes, and I managed to fit all of my essays (in note form) on 2 pages (maximum allowed) and I am sitting pretty. It's a work of art, no wasted space, and all in miniature form, I'm so proud of myself!

You know that we spend too much of our lives in front of screens? Right now, it's a computer screen, other times it's a television screen, if not that, it's a movie screen. It's not good for our eyes, I bet it's a conspiracy with the entertainment world AND optometrists all over the world, in order to make money, and make us disabled! I'd like to see the real world, unmediated through a screen thank you!

I finally did it! I finished the craziest ever custom mission on Swat 4, which was my own evil concoction. My team of 5, against 30 suspects, in a confined space and it was awesome. I can't tell you how many times I've attempted it!!! The last time I came close, I wasn't injured but I couldn't find the last suspect, after 1 hour of searching so I gave up. But this time, my entire team was wiped out fairly quickly and I was left to lone wolf it for 10 suspects in a heavily injured state, and I came out on top! It's lovely, cause it was one of those missions where you're either going to get wasted in 180 seconds, or on the last 2 suspects (which is really annoying). I'd never be cut out for real Swat. I remember having my team focused on a door that I was picking the lock to, quick flashes of red, I'm on the floor - some lady had opened a door down the corridor and just opened fire on my unsuspecting team!! Other times I just run blind through corners and I get blasted, which is fantastic cause I gave the suspects better weapons than Swat, so even if they miss, you will get sprayed slightly, and injuries to the legs are nasty, because you're just a sitting duck.

Hmm, next update will probably be after exams. Have a nice day folks!!

Slow motion

What is wrong with the internet today?! I swear, it's running worse than my dial up days (and that's saying something on a 256k broadband connection).

Well as promised, here's an update. I really hate it when there's a long time between one exam and another. Granted, the study time is great, but when you've studied as much as you can, it's just torture, because you can't do anything fun without feeling guilty. But all my notes are done, and all I have to do is sit the damn exams.

How awful, I thought I had something interesting to say, now I can't remember what the hell it was! Oh well, good day people, good day.

"Like a decapitated chicken in the midst of it's death throes"

I am SO sorry it has been so long since my last post. Trust me, the other isn't dead, he's alive and well and quite busy, as am I.

We're both in the midst of having exams so there won't be that many updates, but after that, you can rest assured that this blog will return in all it's former glory and then some!! You can bet on that.

I really have not been doing much else besides studying and watching ludicrous amounts of television. I can take comfort in the fact that the studying has been worthwhile though, and that all the downloading of various television series' will pay off as soon as my last exam is over the 17th of this month.

Guitar wise, I decided to grow my nails out so I could finger pick like a demi-god. And I could. However, I kept scratching my freakin' face off in my sleep so I had to cut them off (and they were at a really good length, leading many to believe that I was a confused transvestite ladyboy). The problem now is that it has been a good 2-3 months since I last held a pick, and now I am about as shit as I was when I first picked up the damn thing about 2 and a half years ago. What's scary is that my thumb is super fast, I can practically tremolo pick with it, and it's also very accurate. Ahh if only I had a thumb pick!

Well anyhow, this is just a note to let you know that we're not dead and that we shall return to our blogging ways as soon as possible!! Have a nice day folks.
