So basically I've been absent from coming on here for about two months now, oops. I don't think I've missed much, but I dunno how often I'll be on here these days. I kept getting banned from Grasscity (like four times) and gave up, so I guess I also stopped coming here instinctively as well. I've gotten more into reddit recently, but the main reason for that is that it isn't blocked at school. :P
In the past two months I've basically just been working and stressing out over school. I get to worry about college apps and all that good stuff this year, but I got most of that done. I wrote some slammin' essays, applied everywhere I wanted (7 schools in Texas and a very unlikely school in Colorado) and right now I'm three for three. I heard back from (and got into) University of Texas - San Antonio, Texas Tech and Texas State (which I visited this weekend, it was pretty cool). However the one I really want to get into is UT Austin, since it'd be nice to stay here and go to a really nice school. It's just really hard to get into, they've gotten extremely competitive within the last few years and I'm hoping that my parents alumni status and the fact that I'm mexican help a lot (yay affirmative action).
And work sucks. For anyone that doesn't know I work at a place called Panera, apparently there's a bunch in the country because most people I've told online knew what it was. The managers and everyone in general is chill, but the work itself can be a total pain. I usually don't have much energy or motivation when I go there (I normally close on weekdays after going to school) and it's pure chaos for us when it gets really busy, plus we keep getting understaffed. Whenever we hire a new group of people, a bunch of old ones like to leave at the same time. I told the store I wanted to work 15ish hours a week since I have school and all, but two weeks ago I had to do 35. >_> Money is money though, but I just want my free time back. :cry:
And last but certainly not least, I've gotten some pretty nice items with the money. The only thing is I've pretty much been blowing paychecks since I started working there in mid July, but I finally have most of what I really wanted. My most noteworthy purchases are a bubbler from a friend for $100, a DaVinci vaporizer for $140 on amazon and a 32" 1080p Samsung TV. The new TV is more recent, since I was trying to wait for Black Friday to get a really good deal on one. The Tuesday before though, I saw an amazing deal on what nearly satisfied my needs (no PC input, but I'll get an HDMI graphics card eventually). I moved my xbox in my room and now my PS3 doesn't look completely awful like it did on my old TV, so I'll surely be playing my consoles much more now. I'll probably have to tone it down for the next three-ish weeks since finals are coming up, but I usually find some time to play when I can. I need more people to play with though, so you guys should add me.
Xbox Live (and Steam): irjesusthe2nd
I've been playing L4D2 on there mostly and got all the DLC (even though it's free on the PC, I wanted to play it splitscreen really badly) plus I just bought Skyrim, but I'm down to play most games with my friends. I don't have many PS3 games to be honest, but I was able to get Battlefield 3 and Assassin's Creed 3 for it on black friday. And to reiterate, I don't know how often I'll be on here since it's kind of in the back of my head now, but if you wanna chat I'm usually on steam or message me on LIVE. I've been using the 360 more and haven't really played my PS3 since I got the new TV, but lemme know if you have one of the few games I do so we could play together. I'm also on reddit if you guys want to message me there (same as PSN), it's my go to thing when I get bored in class and sometimes don't look at steam for a few days since I've been very busy/distracted by the TV.
I have a huge pile of homework to get done and this has been distracting me for too long, so I'll get back to it. You all should add me though if you can, I'd love to play some rounds of L4D2 or whatever you're up for (as long as I have it). Also, if you do add me, please don't forget to tell me who you are (unless it's insanely obvious).
