Hi, and welcome to my blog-turned-place where I post my writing. This is my outlet to put them up, which was radically different from the blog that this started out as. I hope you'll have a good time reading my blog/place where I post some poetry and some short stories. I try to cover a variety of topics in these works of mine, so I hope any readers will enjoy it. I'm not an English major by any stretch, but I enjoy writing. Critique would be nice for my writing, cause lord knows I could work on it. Enjoy!

Why yes, I do believe it's raining

You know, I'm all for this rain, and I want it to keep on raining for a while, but dang, these puddles here are ridiculous. Like, we have one outside our entrance, and it's like a minefield-you try to step around it and not get splashed by the water. That being said, I a) find this rain to be soothing and very therapeutic and b) I'm digging it how I get to wear jeans and/or long sleeve shirts this early, relatively speaking.

Damn I want to play some puck

Continuing with the hockey theme going on here, I really, REALLY want to play some hockey right now. Skater, goalie, it doesn't matter-I just want to play. Badly.


Come to think of it, today felt a ton longer than it really was. Maybe it's because I got out of class at 9:15, and thus my day started earlier and ended far earlier than most people. Maybe because I killed quite a few hours just playing on my 360. Maybe it's both. Maybe because of the rain, I dunno. Either way, it felt like it was the never ending day; not that I really was complaining.

Work-What's That?

Per usual fashion, I am very late at updating what I did this afternoon. But then again, my loyal follower Rachel probably is used to that by now (sorry bout all that there, by the way). So anyways, my only class of the day ended at 9:15 in the morning, meaning I had the whole day off. I could have studied, done some homework, or work out, and just generally be productive. What did I do? Nothing, except play NHL 11 until I couldn't handle it anymore. And by that, I mean that I played, and consequently got beaten like three consecutive games in a row, which lead my friend Joe to heckle me during the games. However, I did win for him (minus changing the difficulty level and playing Team Ukraine, but shhhhhhhhhh); I outshot the other team 58-7...yet somehow they managed to score a single goal on me (Simeon Varlamov, you suck, bro). Sadly, it's not something to brag about when you beat Team Ukraine while playing as the Caps.

Anyways, the moral of this little life story, for which I know all one of you care about, is that I didn't really do anything today.

What can Down Go Brown and Whose Line Vids can do to you

So as the title indicates, I was reading the very hilarious Down Goes Brown blog, while watching Whose Line Is It, Anyway? vids. Needless to say, my roommate came over, tapped my chair, and asked me why I was laughing like I was on crack.

Funniest Thing I've seen Today

This gem came today, courtesy of the Facebook group "Proclaimed Hockey presents Proclaimed Hockey Whores". One of the wall posts asked,"What if [Marian] Gaborik was given a shot in the shootout to make the playoffs instead of [Olli] Jokinen?". One of the replies was: "What if Jesus had been, like, 'YOU'LL NEVER TAKE ME ALIVE' and gone fuckin Rambo with his magical super powers on some pharisee ass?" Beauty reply right there. 

NHL 11 fail of the (yester)day

Marty Brodeur going into the corner, passing the puck...right to a Pittsburgh Penguin who consequently had an open net to score-which he did. Even though it's a video game, and an amazing one at that, I still had to shake my head due to the amount of epic fail there.


So while it technically is a new day, I still have some thoughts about what is now yesterday. First of all, being home over the weekend from college is pretty weird; I mean, I still haven't gotten used to the fact that I'm not in my dorm in Russell Hall. But still, here are my things I have to say.

-Being home is awesome, if not a bit weird. Like I mentioned, it's super nice to be in your own bed, in your own room, in your house, unlike being in a fairly small dorm room (mine isn't as small as what some of my other friends have had, though). Not to mention that I actually have sweet wifi here, unlike the shitty and sporadic UMW wifi.
-Driving for the first time in a month. It was like "whoa" for me. Haven't been behind the wheel for that long-it's like an out of body experience.
-Speaking of driving, I drove to Lake Braddock to see if I could meet my buds there, as they had the annual tag day event. Turns out that when I got there, they were mostly finishing up, but I did get to talk to some people. And man, was it great seeing those guys there! It also was pretty cool being able to see the freshmen this year too, and I have to say, they're kind of small.
-Being able to purchase and play NHL 11, after being deprived of video games for a month
