There has been another gigantic gap in this glorious blog. Well, trying to control four blog sites at once is a very tiring task. So, I decided to delete two of them: my Xanga site (because I haven't posted since 6/19/2006) and my MySpace (because I found out Rupert Murdoch own it and Tom stopped existing since the Murdoch takeover). So, I've decided to keep this blog mostly because it's new and I think i can tweak it to my liking. For example, actually adding a background to this which will require me to go back to the Fall semester of my sophomore year and reminisce on the fun days of my 7th period Multimedia class. There will be some risks like complete computer destruction, my blog disappearing from existence, or get hackers to control my blog and mess up my name for all eternity. Meh, can't hurt if you don't try.
With that said, I've been having the temptation of building my own computer. I know there are people who already know this. Anyway, I want to start learning how to use Linux. For those who don't know, it is an operating system that gives the user complete freedom of it's uses. It sounds great, but this OS is very hard to figure out, because you have to input all the commands yourself when beginning. There is no easy way to set up. Therefore, I will most likely be dual-booting my new computer. Dual Booting is installing two OSes into the computer and gives the user the choice of choosing which operating system the user would like to choose. It can be a pain in the ass but I can deal with it.
This computer thing isn't for another year or so, mostly because my laptop's still alive and kicking. I'm going to wait until my laptop completely dies itself off (which should be in 1 to 3 years) I thought I was fine having a laptop, but I realized that I would not buy another one unless it perfectly necessary, like having a job that requires me to travel a lot. Anyway, I've decided my next major piece of technology will be a homemade computer.
As it may seem, my internship has long ended. But no worries, I finally got a dead-end job that I like. No, it's not cutting fruit at your local supermarket. It's being a info person at a Barnes and Noble. It's decent and the people are very nice, just very tiring like any job that requires you to stand for 8 hours straight. Of all the questions I would get working at BN, the most frequently asked questions are "Where's the bathroom," and "How do you get downstairs?" It's fairly common mostly because the layout is pretty odd.
I guess I'm one step closer to becoming an editor. I started school this week. I'm finally taking my classes and it's not bad. For once I have teachers who are actually know what they're talking about, not just talking some offending BS. I'm reading a good crap load of stuff but well, I can manage. I have to do some character descriptions and stuff. I'm realizing that it's harder than I thought, mostly because I haven't written any form of fiction or poetry for about a year. I guess I can say I'm losing it, but I don't know. I can write an essay apparently, but this is something totally different. Well, let see what happens. I know that I use the editing skills that I learned during the internship, and support my classmates the best I can. However, I'm feeling I will have to hold back again, well not about the criticizing but about everything else about the class.
I've been listening to some European Music. Well if you can count Russanese (Russian and Japanese) well I've been listen to a lot of Wolfsheim (from Germany) and Origa (from Russia). Well I'll end this with two embedded videos from our good friends at YouTube:
Wolfsheim- Kein Zureuk
Origa- Don't Let Me Go (video is from an Anime call Origins: Spirits of the Past)
