So apparently websites need to be linked for Google to index them. Why did I bother making one in the first place? Oh well. Guess there's no better time than the present to start linking it everywhere where I go!This makes me feel like a sellout.

That's what my livejournal said. I last updated 76 weeks ago. For those of you who aren't good at math, that's one year plus four and a half months. I can't say in good spirits that my blogging responsibilities have been fulfilled. What new has happened in 76 weeks? I can't really say. After going over all my old blogs, I realize I wasn't a very great writer back then. Only nostalgia kept me reading through it all. It turns out back then I was a huge anime fan.
Guess what? I still am!
When I last spoke to my audience, I spoke of my awesome new schedule for the next semester. I am graduated now. I have my Bachelor's Degree in Computer Information Systems! You can hold your applause to the end.
On September 29, 2006 I talked about winning the lottery. Surprisingly that hasn't happened. I don't know what's wrong with me. I guess i'll have to try harder. I showed pictures of my first nephew ever. Since then I've gotten a niece from the same family, and now my sister-in-law is pregnant with a second nephew in another family. He's expected June 1! I guess being three-times an uncle is better than nothing.
I talked about watching Lucky Star, Galaxy Angel and Claymore. Those goals have been achieved. Lucky star is beautiful in certain ways, yet painfully boring in others. It's something best to be watched and left for nostalgia later on. Claymore is exactly as I thought it would be. Not a very good anime at all. Galaxy angel...well, I still have that on the backburner. Things just keep slipping in front of it.
My current to-watch anime list looks like this:
3. Dragon Ball Kai
4. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
5. Hellsing Ultimate
6. Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei
7. Mahou Sensei Negima! OVA Shiroki Tsubasa Ala Alba
8. Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha
10. Naruto: Shippuuden
11. One Piece
It's obvious a lot of these are long-term projects, but right now i'm concentrating on Clannad and Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha. I think if i'm gonna make this 'blogging' thing work, I had best talk about the things I love or i'll just get bored. Anyway, here's hoping I haven't completely lost my audience.

|What The Holidays Mean to You|
For you, the holidays are about emotional connections and bonds. You are happiest being around those you love.
You celebrate the holidays in a natural style. Homemade gifts are your favorite, and you can't stand imitation Christmas trees or wreaths
During the holidays, you like to feel cozy and comfortable. You're happy to stay inside with a roaring fire and a warm drink.
You think the holidays should be decadent and indulgent. You never mind gaining a few holiday pounds... it's worth it!
Your favorite holiday memories strongly evoke your senses. You are vividly aware of all the tastes, smells, and sounds of the holidays.

Lets see here. Given its 5AM, this is a short update. I've watched a lot of anime lately over the last month:
Azumanga Daioh- I suppose this is a must-see if you haven't already. Its like Haruhi if Haruhi weren't all messed up to begin with. It depects average, everyday school life in a comedy setting.
Elfen Lied- Cute. I compare it to Chobits, only more fanservice, action and tugging of the heart-strings.
Darker Than Black- Fun anime. Reminds me of FMA.
One Piece- Rewatch, but still fun to watch the early episodes.
School Days- Bad, bad BAD! Do not watch on your life unless you like bad endings.
In any case, i've still got quite a few themes to watch yet. I'm debating Galaxy Angel, Lucky Star and trying to watch Claymore again. Although I got to episode 2 of Claymore, I'm having problems even gathering the interest to watch a third episode. Maybe i'm missing something that makes it appealing to others...

Current Music: Wake-up call
Its been a while, hasn't it? Well I guess I had best get the details out of the way. The new schoolyear has begun. What are my classes?
CIS336 - INTERACTIVE WEB PROGRAMMING
Cool course. I have a wierd teacher from it with a thick accent. His lectures are rather boring, and for some reason he sees the need to teach us HTML before we get to the good stuff, so...probably a free A if this keeps up.
CIS358 - SYSTEMS DOCUMENTATION
This is the hell class I suspect to get a lot of homework this year. Strangely enough, despite the name, we have yet to do any systems documentation. In fact, the only things we've done is resume-writing and job research. Guess they gotta fill the lesson plan somehow...
CIS366 - SECURE SERVER ADMINISTRATION
This class sounds fun, but after meating my teacher (From Afghanistan), I'm not so sure. Becuase of his limited grasp of english, we've already gotten assignments back with points off because we did not answer the question word for word with how he did. Its not like its a big deal, but it might be frustrating in the long run.
BUS340 - BUSINESS LAW I
Strangely enough, this class is possibly my favorite this year, despite it being the black sheep of the semester. It is my only business class this semester, but it has a really awesome teacher, and its about american law, so you can assume that there are going to be some horror stories coming from our teacher, a former lawyer. XD
Other than that, there's not much else to report. My computer broke down so I bought a new one. I also bought Bioshock and enjoy the game, but i've taken a break from it recently due to having more important things to attend to. Right now i'm reading Mahou Sensei Negima, which is a relatively good manga despite the anime lacking in a lot of ways. I've also taken to watching an anime called "Darker Than Black." Its something like Fullmetal alchemist in that it has the same feel (and was animated by the same company); however, it still doesn't live up to FMA. Finally I've been watching a short 12-episode anime called "School Days." Its a really ecchi anime that was originally based off of a dating sim. The way things are going in the anime, it doesn't look like its going to end well. I started watching because the person who reviewed it said it was romantic, and while it is good, I fear for the main character.

After many hours, I'm finally back home, sitting comfortably at my computer. Today started at 10. It would have started at 9 but I wanted to sleep in. I helped my roommate move to another hall where he could stay for the summer, then he helped me move out. I filled out an application for a job starting next year and handed that in. Finally we ate lunch and cleaned our room and we were out of there.
I finally got on the road around 2 P.M. For those of you with little or no experience driving long distances, don't do it when you're tired. You start spacing out big time, and you constantly worry you might accidentally fall asleep and get into a crash. Later on I had developed a method of keeping myself attentive and alert, which included playing with just about every piece of electronic equipment my car had, including the horn. Well, due to the fact that the horn is one of the least-used items on a car, and it was a really old car, when I tried the horn on the highway when I knew there were no other cars out, the button got stuck in and the horn kept going even after I released it.
That was a wake-up call if you ever needed one. It took me about a mile of driving with my horn at full blaze before I was finally able to unjam the button. I'm never doing that again unless its for an emergancy. I was worried if that kept up either my battery would have died or worse, I would have been pulled over. Either way, my very first action when I got home was to fix some stuff up. I had intended to fix it before but I didn't have the time to do that. Now that I was home I could fix it quickly before I unpacked. Finally, about four hours ago I could settle down.
So what's in the future for me? A lot of work. I'm not sure if I should get into details just yet, my job hasn't even started yet. But I do know I have two more days to enjoy myself before I have to go to work.

Current Music: Knights Come Marching Home Again - FF/CT Remix
Okay. I'm going to be brief here. I've lived in this area now for about a year and a half. Only recently hae I gained the courage and confidence to begin 'searching' around town for interesting places. I'll have to say I was surprised at what I found.
Seriously. Its not like i'm addicted to coffee or anything, but whenever I am in the mood for it, I might as well be. I wanted some coffee and there was a starbucks just sitting there, so I went in.
I have never been at a Starbucks before.
I expected coffee. Maybe they might have went into latte or whatnot. What I found was kind of a centralized habitat for coffee drinkers. Newspapers and chairs were set out. Cups were being sold of every shape and size. And the coffee. I don't know when they started putting chocolate, caramel or strawberry in coffee, but it makes me want to try every flavor. I asked for something sweet and ended up getting a 'cold coffee' caramel Frappechino. It wasn't the best in the world but it was good. They put enough whipped cream on there to surprise even me. Then I learned an important lesson about sucking whipped creme through a straw. You can't. There are not words labeling how incredibly difficult it is to get whipped cream out of the bottom of the cup with the straw you are given, which leads me to believe that you are expected to eat teh whipped creme first and then drink the liquid under it. That kind of goes against my standard whipped-creme eating etiquette. I guess I can change my ways just this once...
I HAVE A GAMESTOP! I've never HAD a gamestop before. I don't know what to do with it. When I saw it I ran towards it like we were opposite poles of a magnet. Like the Starbucks, I have never been to a Gamestop before, and I didn't know what to expect. I wasn't unsatisfied at all. The place was full of video games, and even had an X-Box 360 console with a boxing game in it. Naturally the graphics were impressive, but I myself was unimpressed by the realism. The motions weren't real at all, and other than dynamic camera angling, you didn't feel like you were punching your opponent. You fist would stop near them, and their head miight or might not bob, but that's about it. Yet another reason why i'll probably be getting a Wii, or dare I say, a PS3 before I get an X-Box. The employees there were pretty cool there. I met a cute girl working there who loved video games. Let me repeat myself...
A CUTE GIRL WHO LOVES VIDEO GAMES!
Damn. Never saw that coming. I only know of one other person who is a girl, is cute, and plays video games. If you are reading this, you probably know EXACTLY who I am referring to. I noticed they had two copies of Disgaea: Hour of Darkness on sale for $39.99 but I didn't pick them up. There are several reasons for this. First, I don't know if the game is in the condition which it can be played, and have little to no way of testing that out. I have my PS2 with me, but no TV. Go figure :/
Second, $39.99 is a bit steep for me to be spending right now on a video game. I'll admit that it was tempting, but I just don't know enough about the game to make a purchasing decision like that. If anyone has played it can they let me know? I know on MCM Flonne is cute, Etna is hot, and I don't know much about Laharl other than he's a human/demon halfbreed like Inuyasha is. He's as proud as Inuyasha as well as extremely powerful. That's about all the 12-episode anime series that I really got to know. I guess this calls for some research. More details on my trip to town later!
...guess this wasn't so short afterall!
