I just want to pass. 

So that was my rant. 

I also submitted research to a conference in Chicago, so I might be visiting Dave at some point later in the year.

This happened


I also started a new quarter of school, taking web design and UI design at the same time, learning HTML and all that stuff.Also taking Advertising Principles with a badass teacher that knows WHALE. And right now I'm currently on the 3rd season of Top Chef.

Right on Bravecoward, how is the program so far? My program somehow completely skipped web-dev, I guess assuming we all know it. Kind of stupid since you need it to sell yourself/ your portfolio without relying on another service. I use cargo collective because they're stupid easy and actually look good.

If it makes you feel any better, I had to drop a class I had an A average in because I thought a book report was extra credit when it reality it counted for a grade. So went straight from an A to a D.

It seems that teacher/student communication can be a tough one sometimes. Being on the same page with a deaf instructor can be very difficult so I tend to question everything at least twice.

Still kind of clinging onto the Deans list for now. What's funny is how I don't bother to articulate here on the forum but scored almost 100% on my English pretest and that I'm eligible to tudor city school kids in English.

I got back from a cross country drive late last night. Took 52 hours for 3,150 miles. Not bad considering we had a dog to take care of, and I couldn't drive in the dark the second night, which forced us to take a rest break for three or four hours.

The Rockies aren't all that impressive.

For the trip? My sister had a baby and they decided to move back closer to home. I flew out to help them pack up the house/drive the car back so she could fly home with the baby.

Try putting a scoop of vanilla ice cream in it for a dessert.

Gross.

It's a cheap way to steady the hands on a limited budget. 
You need to buy 'Gansett pounders. Dirt cheap and drinkable. Or get classy and experiment with cheap 40's. When I can get an 18 pack of Busch in 16oz cans for $12, I think I'm doing alright, then again, I used to get a 30 pack of Keystone for $14.

As for TopGear USA, I watch it when nothing better is on. Most of the time they have no idea what they are doing, and/or blatantly ripping off the brits, so it is sort of entertaining. Their stupidity is what makes me laugh. 

If the British TG hosts had more American episodes, I'd love it.
