drugs;,#)><)_-

I didn't want to say too much too soon, but it would appear that my initial intuition has proven correct. Drugs are the key to success. Let me explain. Having caught the local bug for some cold throat headache bodyache thing, I was near bed ridden for 3 days prior to finals. Finding myself in quite the predicament and lacking the necessary time to study for finals I turned to my loyal friend: drugs. Having never failed me in the passed we entered into a quick partnership. Staying awake for 31 hours straight, the drugs allowed me to stay up and take the test as if I had studied for 3 days straight. Now I'm not advocating the use of drugs, but I'll tell ya what it really worked out for me, and I've got the passing grades to prove. I guess you could say my standards continue to slip steady away from me. Now I know what you must be thinking, this kid got into some hard core drugs. No, not really. Although I do hear some kids take cocaine prior to finals and study for like 3 days straight and retain everything. If my morals were different and I had loads of cash just sitting around I just might do that. But, given my circumstances and morals, I simply lurched into gray area rather than straight up black area. I took some caffiene fat burning pills or something recommended by a dear friend. So to sum up, miracles sometimes come in the form of a small pill.

Happy Holidays Peeps!

I was recently asked via email if i was dead or married. . . . . .I hope this answers their question at least in part.

I think I may have been offended. Possibly amused.

Conspiracy Theory

Let the truth be known. How did the twin towers spontaneously crumble to the earth? How did it collapse perfectly on itself without causing damage to nearby buildings? How did a third building also fold on itself when nothing hit it?

A Professor at BYU investigates.

La Costa . . .

changes. discovering once again that my body is susceptable to the illnesses of the world, i have decided a major life change is in order. Sharing a room and living with 5 other slobs has gotten the best of me. I came down with sinusitus and the mumps. I was bed ridden for weeks.

Almost. I sniffled and coughed for about a week. I was very upset, and still am, which may confirm the opinion of some that I am an extremely angry person and that I have a problem. Regardless, I have put my contract for sale offering a free dinner.

There's something to be said for privacy and a place to call home, even if you do have to sell your soul to get it. As I've said before, "money's not an issue when it comes to my happiness." I'm never happier than when I'm spending other people's money. I laugh at anyone that says money can't buy happiness. And yes I am a snob.

i need my hat


despite my capability to be infinitely patient, my limits are about to be breached. i have lost my hat. i know not where it has wandered. and the worst part is is that someone has it and will not reveal its true location, nor will the possessor reveal his identity. i am at a loss for words. this is about more than a hat. it is a part of me. we have gone everywhere together, we have gone nowhere together . . . what can heal my broken heart?

How many games should a player be suspended for pushing a camera man and his camera?

Please help.....


SEOUL, South Korea - A South Korean man who played computer games for 50 hours almost non-stop died of heart failure minutes after finishing his mammoth session in an Internet cafe, authorities said on Tuesday.

The 28-year-old man, identified only by his family name Lee, had been playing online battle simulation games at the cybercafe in the southeastern city of Taegu, police said.

"We presume the cause of death was heart failure stemming from exhaustion," a Taegu provincial police official said by telephone.

Lee had recently quit his job to spend more time playing games, the daily JoongAng Ilbo reported after interviewing former work colleagues and staff at the Internet cafe.

Despite this sad news there is a bright side. Apparently a woman who had been playing online against the man for the same period also resides in South Korea and goes by the alias, Dena. If anyone has any information concerning the whereabouts of this mysterious online phenom, the appropriate authorities should be contacted, IE., the Taegu provincial police.

This is not a joke.

OCD


Taking in the scenery at Smith Rock I can help but wonder what am I thinking? And this is what makes us human. Some say its OCD. I say shut up and stop thinking. Ahh. I apologize for the shadows which mask my brilliant tan. I'm not posting this picture because I'm into myself or anything I just want everyone to see I'm not butt-white, I am in fact almost black, especially in the shadows. Speaking of shadows, people look way better in shadows. Maybe instead of wearing make up self-conscious girls should flee from the sun and artificial light rather than seeking it and bask in the beauty which the dark provides. And I don't have OCD. PS. Beavers are human. If I could only be a beaver. If anyone knows how I can become one let me know. Posted by Picasa

Boone bends over in frustration after grounding out in what turned out to be his last at bat as a Mariner. In his last at bat he grounded out with the game tied with 2 men on in the eigth. The Mariners went on to lose 6-5 and their 7th in a row. Some shed tears of sorrow but mine were filled with joy. Bret Boone was officially released from the Mariners on Sunday. The Mariners were instantly filled with hope. Well, at least enough hope to win the game 2-1. Not surprisingly the Mariners won on Tuesday as well 6-0. Recently the Mariners had a strech where they won 12 out of 17 or so. During this stretch Boone had sat most of these games. He was benched to work on his mechanics. Then Boone came back. Thus began the 7 game skid, Boone was released and bam the team's back on track with 2 straight wins. All this is very ironic because I said not less than a week ago that the day the Mariners get rid of Boone is the day they become competetive. The M's have also been on a skid for the last 2 years, coinciding with Boone's 2 year slump. No coincidences here. Boone is gone, the M's can make the playoffs, I believe and so should you. The cancer is gone. I am very passionate on the subject as I'm sure you can tell. And I think this picture tells the story almost to well. It was time, and I am thrilled. Posted by Picasa

This site is amazing. It gives you the big picture of the market each day and lets you know all the news and the sectors that are going up and down. I really don't look at financial news too much but this site reports the information in such a simple and exciting new way I quickly started to check the site daily to see what had gone up and down, check it out and let me know what you think.

more discoveries

Some awesome extensions I recently download with firefox are adblock, and tabbrowser preferences, which helps the browsing process. Also stumble upon is an amazing product which has changed my life.
Here are some cool sites you should check out that I stumbled upon:
http://bugmenot.com
gives you username and passwords so you dont have to pay
http://pookmail.com
allows you to give people bogus emails for free offers etc..
http://www3.dropload.com
acts as a web hard drive, allows 100 mb uploads and downloads
http://www.internetfrog.com/mypc/speedtest
clocks upload and download speeds

Let me know if these things help simplify your life

protect

I would just like to relate the latest protections that I have uncovered in my quest to have a clean computer. I switched my firewall from zone alarm to sygate, which is far superior and gives me alot more protection. If you need evidence I got about 7 viruses after I got zone alarm. I also found that it is necessary to disable windows firewall in order for sygate to operate more efficiently and the computer as well. AVG conceptually is a good free anti-virus deal except the free version only updates once a month, thus making it essentially useless. So I now use Mcafee which I got from a friend and somehow its free. If you really want to know how I can email you. Also spybot and adware are good but you have to manually update them and scan at least once a week. But what this really signifies is a weak action firewall. Meaning you're cleaning up what the firewall allowed into your computer. So my advice, get the better firewall, sygate, and a free anti-virus that automatically updates every day. One that updates each month is worthless. Before I got Mcafee I had bit defender which automatically updates, which is at least better than avg.

Top 10 Most Politically Conservative Colleges
5. Brigham Young University (UT)
One can't separate Brigham Young University and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the school's sponsoring faith. From the student body to the "stringent" honor code (which regulates not only academic behavior but also dress, hair length, diet, and sexual activity) to the heavy religious studies requirement, BYU serves the needs of America's Mormon community first and foremost. Those few non-Mormons we heard from in our survey suggest that outsiders considering the school strongly consider their ability to live within Mormonism's strict requirements. "Life at BYU is a lot different than a typical university life," explains a typical undergrad. "Students here do not participate in activities that are in contrast with our religious beliefs." Some, however, warn that "the nonconformist will find a dull social life with difficulty finding someone [who] will be their friend, regardless of who they are or what they believe."
I am definately not a conformist.
Weird.
Very weird.

telemarketing

despite not being able to last more than a week on my most recent job, it did however inspire me to create my own business. I will pay 12 and 13 year olds to sell car washes and oil changes over the phone from campus (so I dont have to use or pay for a landline). They will be paid on pure commission so I only pay them as I make money. I think I really have an idea which hasn't even been tapped in Provo. All money will be used for the 12 and 13 year old upcoming scout camp adventure. We are 100% non-profit.

Today I killed my pea plant. We've been together for about a month and a half. Filled with many ups and downs the time was right to finally put it down. In retrospect I'm sure there were some things I could have down better. Give it more light, better water and most of all more tender loving care. If I only would have known that the pod would become so heavy it would bend the plant in half. Alas my plant is dead and I am left alone to tell the sad tale of Project Pea Plant. I hope I get an A. Posted by Hello

Budd

Buddhism that is. I'm converted. I don't know if this requires baptism or what but I'm a self proclaimed Buddhist-Mormon. Kinda like how Marvin Goldstein is a Jewish-Mormon. I see no contradiction and I think it's a perfect fit, and it also comes at a great time in my life. I'm making big life decisions right now and I think this will help me focus my thoughts and energy towards something more positive. If I know anything at all it is that I'm at where I'm at and I deserve to be where I am, at least that's what Buddhism tells me. I wonder where I'll end up in the next life or what I'll end up being. Maybe a bird or maybe I'll just be a rock, keen to observe all around me and tell little jokes to the peebles chillin' nearby. Anyway it's all about karma. My conversion story? I read the 4 noble truths, which are: 1 - Life is suffering 2 - Suffering arises from desire 3 - The solution to suffering lies in curbing desire 4 - Desire can be curbed if a person follows the eight fold path. My conversion was both logical and spiritual. The eight fold path is where Buddhism gets a little too much too soon. Join me and we can be little Buddhist friends. Plus we could probably take over the world. Who's in?

I don't know if you can see or if you would ever notice, but I'm wearing my tsunami survivor beads, as a constant reminder of the fragility of life Posted by Hello

It's my B

Drifting upon the clouds of life I like to call laziness, another year has passed. With each passing year I find myself getting wiser and wiser, and by no effort of my own. I have always thought that my phsyical prime was about 14 or 15. And so this last year I have found that my body is really weak. Also as a college student I don't have the greatest diet. Maybe this is the cause of people blindly throwing themselves into foolish relationships that lead to even more foolish eternal commitments. What I'm getting at is that people get married because their wife makes them dinner. But alas, I, lacking a wife, also find myself lacking a balanced diet. And so my body is slowing getting weaker, barely clinging to what some call life. But in the past year I have recognized this physical weakness, and so I have begun to supplement my breakfast's each day with calcium. I also take vitamins A, C, and E, and I get some D with the calcium too. This last summer I started getting shin splints. I go home for Christmas, run two days in a row and bam, injured for a month. I guess I was more forced to supplement my meals than anything else. Life is not a game, but if it was I'd be a superstar. Don't be offended, just smile and go on with life. I really am humble, really I am. "I've been afraid of changing cause I've built my life around you. .... Even children get older....I'm getting older too....." Ah the bliss of randomismz.

I was also told recently that I should be a photographer. I think you can see why. I am always amazed at the times when fate seems to poke out its ugly little head. I think this was one of those times. Light and dark. Two worlds collide in the image I call without hesitation, "dulce." Translation...this image captures the sweetness which fate inevitably captures. Don't thank me thank the serendipitous events which arise around and about us without so much as a warning. I'd almost like to say it's rude....but I won't. Later friends. Posted by Hello

aghh the pain

I have shin splints. it hurts. i need someone to come and massage my shins or something. any volunteers? unfortunately thats all i have to say right now, in terms of complaining at least.

Ive move into my new place, and it is amazing. I don't like school anymore, at least right now, I don't want to go to school. These are my feelings.

I really enjoy sharing my feelings. Oh how I wish I could shout my feelings from the tops of the mountains for all to hear, this is a really good outlet for me.

Whatever.

poetry?

I was just recently encouraged into the field of poetry....and I slowly drifted away into deep thought.....

dreaming upon the gusts of wind
i was swept away by the storms which have already past
icicles form and drip upon my eyelids
freezing my memory which thinks
of you

and to think I was once asked if I was a romantic
