I Still Live!

Hello, I've returned from my trip off the side of the Earth. This last quarter I took two chemistry courses, and calculus one.

Even though one of the chemistry courses was 90% review (I took it in the hope of jumping ahead a little bit, in order to cut a quarter off my associates, unfortunately, it didn't pan out, because they're not offering the class I need over summer quarter), it still ended up being a lot more work than I was expecting. I didn't really do much of anything over this last quarter, except study, homework, chores, and... no, that was it. Incidentally, I had my lowest quarterly GPA so far, I still ended up with a 3.6 or so (haven't checked the final numbers, every teacher has their own special way of adding up all of your points) so it wasn't catastrophic, but I've come to the conclusion that I really need to take advantage of some fun outlets, like this blog, and videogames.

Other things to note about school, I don't know if I mentioned it on here or not, but I shared my story of pipebomb horror with my CPR instructor that I took last summer quarter, and the story, along with my pictures, has been a part of his curriculum (he likes to share some real world images/stories, mostly from his time as a Navy medic). We got to the subject during one of my labs last quarter (I can't help it, it's a fun story to tell) and a girl walked up and said "Oh, you're that guy!" Apparently she was in Ron Husman's CPR class. It made feel pretty special, is all.

Um, okay, gotta clean up my room a bit, and then we should be back to the Optimus Prime world tour.

Lemme Tell You About The Transformer, Astrotrain, And Why He's My Favorite

       I am, quite obviously, a massive fan of Transformers, but I grew up in kind of a weird time for being a fan. Really, I'm just a LITTLE too young. I remember seeing my brother, who was six years older than I, get all of the coolest Transformers, and then by the time that I started being able to ask for Transformers for myself, the nature of Transformers had greatly changed. I have a great anecdotal story about him clipping Soundwave (arguably one of the coolest Transformers toys ever, which turned into a microcassette player) to his shorts and climbing a tree. He then proceeded to fall 30 feet out of that tree, and land on Soundwave, which poked him right in the kidney, and he peed blood for a week.        While I still have a great deal of fondness for them, Powermaster Optimus Prime is just not as cool of a toy as the original Optimus Prime. Notably, if you landed on Powermaster Optimus Prime, he probably wouldn't puncture your kidney, but the original Optimus Prime mig

What It's Like To Get Pipebombed

Well, I'm going to break with my rule of not actually mentioning anything about having a pipe thrown at you, but in celebration of the 6 month anniversary, I really wanted to write it up. So, without further ado, here's what happened on my Fourth of July 2009, and the six months since: So, it's the Fourth of July, 2009, about ten-ish or so at night. Being that we live in a condo, and our homeowner's association has prohibited fireworks being let off in our complex, we decided to take a walk around the neighborhood in order to better see the fireworks everyone else was letting off. We walked straight out the front gate, got about maybe 50 feet down the street, and a dark car with it's headlights on pulled out onto the street, about a block ahead of us a man with a white shirt was walking in the same direction as us, nothing noteworthy about either of those. However, upon passing us, something was tossed out of the passenger window and bounced off my chest, upon th

Naked Heat: Reviewing this book makes my brain hurt

I finished the latest book by Richard Castle a few days ago, and I've been thinking about how I want to write this review ever since. You see, Richard Castle is a rock star amongst murder mystery novelists, he struck it big with his series of Derek Storm novels, but shocked the world by killing the character at the end of the last book in the series. After that, he found inspiration in NYPD detective Kate Beckett, and based his new character, Nikki Heat, off of her. Naked Heat is the second book in the Nikki Heat series. What's so weird about that? I'm sure all three of my regular readers already know, but none of these people are real, Rick Castle and Det. Beckett are both characters on ABC's crime/drama/comedy series Castle. Haven't watched Castle? For shame, I highly recommend it, it's a perfect guilty pleasure movie, a series of one and done murder mysteries, that are fairly light hearted, with a great comedy dynamic between the characters of Castle,
