Since my last blog. It's not that I've been too busy to write any, there's just not been a lot going on that's interesting. I started school back on August 19, this quarter is halfway over at the end of the week. School's been the same old same old. I've found myself enjoying band much more this year, I've even liked marching a lot:o My favorite class is Wood Shop. I'm making a glass door book shelf. It will be pretty cool when it's done, I'm almost ready to start puting it together, I need to do some more cutting and sanding then I'll start putting it together, that will probably happen sometime next week. I'll also be making a wooden lamp or two, and maybe something else too, idk.
Band's been much more fun this year, but I'm not really looking forward to basketball. It doesn't interest me like it did a couple of years ago. I'm just burnt out on it and our coach that was new last year insists on doing waaayyy to much extra stuff (summer weights, open gyms on saturdays throughout the school, 2 and a half hour practices). I just don't enjoy it that much to want to use up that much of my time. I've only got 3 more seasons left, so I might as well play.
Math class sucks. It really does. Math itself is easy, but it's so boring and I don't care for my teacher. I've got Geometry this year, and I don't understand why so many people struggle with it. Everything's just clicked for me, I guess.
I got a car:D It's a 1988 Ford Mustang LS. It's the LS, but it has a GT motor, a 5.0 HO 302 (HO stands for High Output). I really haven't drove it that much, I've mainly been driving my moms old car, I don't care to leave my mustang sitting in the school parking lot. I'll drive it a lot more when I get the seatsReupholstered (I think that's how you spell it, the spellchecker isn't catching it, and my spelling isn't the greatest). I have some ugly seat covers that the previous owner had on it, the bottom of the seats are all cracked up.
From what I've drove of it, it's FAST. It's an incredibly light-weight car with a hopped up motor in it. I want to bring it to the fun drags some day, see what it will run. I'm gonna replace the whole stereo system too. The speakers are blown and the receiver is broke. The exterior is in perfect condition though, no rust anywhere, and the paint isn't faded at all. It's been babied all it's life. I need to take some pictures of it.
I got Uncharted: DR, and already beat it. A pretty solid game, if you own a PS3 it's a must-have. I beat Star Wars the Force Unleashed, it was alright. If you find it for $15 or less, go ahead and pick it up. If not, just rent it.
POLITICAL STUFF, SKIP IF YOU AREN'T INTERESTED
I'm not a big supporter of Obama, and I'm tired of people trying to pull the race card whenever anyone speaks out against him, I'm not racist, I just don't agree with a lot of democratic views (No, I'm not a republican, I'm independent, I like whoever I think would be the best in office, although I can't vote) and it seems Obama is throwing away money. I also don't support government healthcare, for a variety of reasons.
I don't like the senators outburst at the speech, but at the same time, I can sympathise with him. I don't feel that Obama has done a good job of listening to the people, and obviously, the senator was fed up with it (I honestly can't remember his name) but that still doesn't mean you should interrupt his speech.
Honestly, the recession is over, so I think everything should go back to normal, other than a few topics that are on debate which I would rather not argue over, but need attending to (these were topics that were big before the recession).
People need to stop using their credit cards and getting loans they can't pay. That's what got us in the recession in the first place, people bought things they couldn't afford, and then businesses were out quite a bit of money. SUPPORT LOCAL BUSINESSES, it's hard sometime, they are often more expensive and don't offer the selection you find online, but it's better for the economy and keeps unemployment down. I'm guilty of not supporting local businesses as much as I should, but I don't buy much that places around here carry.
I think political parties should be abolished. And those running for president should be limited to how much they can campaign, which means no TV ads. Why do I think this? Because the way things are currently, the averageperson has no chance of ever becoming president, it costs way to much. So we're always stuck with rich people who have no idea what the average persons life is like. The amount of time they are alowwed to campaign should also be resticted to 8 months.
Political parties were a bad idea. The founding fathers had hoped that they wouldn't develop. They saw what happened with Political parties in other countries and didn't want it in the US.
END OF POLITICAL RANT
I'm now the officer in two unions, you guys should check them out. They are
The Last Kingdom. It's basically a game/movie/novels/anime union. It's also big on Square Enix games, and other RPGs. You guys should check it out, we could use some more members.
The Folklore and Fantasy Union. This one's pretty much self explannitory:PGo ahead and joinif you love fantasy in any form.
And what's your guys' opinion on the avatar? I've generally heard compliments, although there were a couple that didn't like it so much.
Finally, I'll leave you with a song (especially for you, Supa_Badman:P You don't mind if I just shorten it to Supa, do you?)
