Woopwoop! In honor of Kayla's party tonight, lol.


11:48 p. - 12:23 a: Japanese "Listening Comprehension" worksheet. Listened to "Genkides 2: Track 02" ten times.

(Unrelated to my schedule, see below for music reference. The Japanese characters behind the sword above by the way read: "Kee-Ru Bee-Ru" or, not surprisingly, "Kill Bill." See, I'm studying!)

12:23 a. - 12:31 a: Assisted residents looking for somewhere to project a movie on a big screen. After the R.A. on duty shot them down, I suggested they check if the classrooms downstairs were left unlocked.

1:10 a. - 1:46 a: Paused to chat with Erin who came to visit me. Erin's awesome, and writing a section of the Circle K award paper - YAY for helpfulness!

1:47 a. - 2:13 a: Chatted with Sarah online. I love her, and what's she doing up? Sigh. How much easier our relationship would be without Circle K. No wonder everyone in this org are single ladies or gay guys.

2:13 a. - 3:04 a: Returns to content reading project. At 2:22, only 4 more short answers to go. Well that math didn't add up correctly actually. 2 short answers to go at 2:47 a.

3:05 a - 3:08a: Emailed new finished project to Teacher. Blah, 10% off 2/3rd of it, full credit on the first third, you do the math, I'm too tired...

3:10 - 3:14 a: Emailed Kiwanis advisor regarding Patsy's essay for her Leadership award.

3:19 a - 3:26a : Grades and comments from E³ class are in for two projects. I got a 27/30 (90%) and second 12/12. I am one of 4 students in a class of 29 to get 100 on Reading Critiques so far n.n Interseting comments. I included in my Cultural Autobiography stuff about "Garfield Heights people's high expectations for movie theaters, and low expectations for construction." I got a "Rich Description!"

until 3:45 a: Emailed contact at the "International Institue of Akron" to find times for my required service learning hours. Gotta get those by Wednesday to turn in. I get to volunteer to help foreign born people in the Akron in some educational-for-them way. WooHoo! Hopefully I'll get to practice my Japanese, Korean or German.

3:50a: Hopefully head home and go to sleep! :( Gotta be up at 9 to get print things for College Dems, study for Japanese major test, deliver papers, take Japanese major test, table for College Dems in Union from noon to 1. SIGHz x10)

Song of the Day:
"Young Folks" by Peter Bjorn and John. Found this on the American Eagle Pandora page, I like it. Haha, watching the start of the music video reminds me of Patsy triyng to learn to whistle. Also, a little bit of the whistling song from Kill Bill. Another song I liked off this, Song of the Day runner-up was "ABC's" by K'naan.

Dredded Award Forms

Arr, it's that time of year again: when Circle K's officers and board has to write essays and fill out forms to send in to the Ohio District of Circle K so that at DCON we can (hopefully) sweep the award scene. I have at least one of my essays done, the others I am not exacty clear on and hope to figure out this afternoon. But I would like to get them mailed either Friday or Saturday, because they need to get to Columbus on Tuesday! So I'm off to get signitures for the cover page in a minute, Vince as Sergent at Arms and Jessica R. as Back-Up #2 Delegate. Also have to print a bunch of papers. Sigh, so busy.

But this weekend is going to be AWESOME! Kayla's Birthday party Friday night, Saturday morning get stuff done, Saturday mid-day Scrapbook Party for Circle K (where I plan to bring my family album and work on that, because I'm not sure what else for the club scrapbook we're going to need to do, lol.) Then Saturday night is Kat's birthday party, whoop whoop - followed by a Sunday morning service project at Pat Katans! Then, nightmare of nightmares, the week starts again :/

But at least this week's Spring Open House was pretty darned successful, got alot of new intersted people so the weight of "will this club survive after me" is pretty much removed from my shoulders. Next week I get to focus on other stuff, like finding a house for next year, now that Sarah can take off for spring break, where will we go!? Should I run for ASG or not, should I get a job at the U.S. Census or American Eagle?! Oh what this upcoming season will bring on The TV Show that Is My Life. Stay tuned.

Song of the Day: "Say Hey" by Michael Franti. "The more I see, the less I know..." Aw, what a sentiment. This is a jolly little jingle I hear on the radio occasionally and have yet to look up the title or artist. Hm, his wikipedia article isn't very informative (he's been active for many years apparently though) but ah, here it is - the song's article. Not exactly the kind of single that usually gets popular on 96.5, but that's where I heard it. Huh.

Gamer Wannabe

Back in the day, I played video games pretty darned often. I remember the days where I played Nintendo and Gameboy everyday, and even occasionally my brother's Sega. Then I got a Playstation, and David got an Nintendo 64. Then I got a Playstation 2, and David got an XBox. (It's like there's a gaming war right under our own roof!) Then David got a Nintendo Gamecube, and I got a Nintendo DS. Then David got an XBox 360. And that, friends, is where the story ends.

Our household, alas, will likely never see a Wii or Playstation 3. I have fallen drastically behind on the gaming world - and frankly with good reason. First of all, college is busy! I'm in this crazy organization you probably haven't heard of, but plenty of other college kids find time to be non-stop Gamers - like Kat's BF Adam. I wanna be a gamer! :( Maybe not a gamer-freak like some people I imagine exist out there, but alot of the recently popular games just don't interest me. 2008 was for all intents and purposes the year of the Guitar game. That means Guitar Hero and Rock Band. The height of this fad was likely early 2009, and the economic peak would be fall of 2009 - when 8 titles of the same style of game came out (including Van Halen, Beatles, and Lego Star Wars Rock Band/Hero/etcs.)

This blog comfortably describes the decline of the band/guitar video game industry. Aside from that, many of the other games popular in this era (Halo, Gears of War, Call of Duty, etc.) are militaristic shooting games - never really my style. I miss the good old days of Spyro, Crash, and Tomb Raider. Even Gex :/

Which leads me to my main reason for writing this particular blog on a day when I have so many other worries to focus on: Playstation 3 SUCKS MONKEY B@LLZ! This is simply one of the top 3 most laughable game platforms to my knowledge. I have felt this for a long time, but the news is all the more made recent by some guy having hacked into it (BBC) - and apparently there is a way to make it play all PS2 games and PS1 games. WHY!?!?!?!??!?!! oN EARTH did Sony not just ALLOW it to do this in the first place?! Honestly, that was a major selling point for me. When I considered buying a new game system approximately 1 year ago, I looked at PS3 -- said will it play the games I want it to (mainly PS2 and 1, because PS3 games suck) and it didn't. So I just bought a used PS2. That of course later broke, but besides the point. I miss the days when PS2 reigned as King of Kings! Does anyone remember this commercial:

Sigh. Now there are music videos devoted to making fun of it to the tune of "How To Save a Life": (I don't want to put two embedded videos on here, so just click this to listen to this pretty entertaining video.) So Sony, I hope you hear the message loud and clear: you have to make PS4 AWESOME as opposed to unbearably crappy. And it better be damn cheap to make up for how much you f**ked everyone with PS3. I want to be a gamer, and it's all your fault :(

See Also: 122 Reasons PS3 Sucks.

Song of the Day: "Everybody" by Backstreet Boys. To continue the decline into nostalgia, we were watching "I Love the '90s" yesterday and this song came on- and this was the first CD I bought like 10ish years ago, lol. I remember putting it in the computer and being amazed it had a music video on it too. Haha, someone noted that towards the end of the video when they're all dancing in unison on the floor there's a cut where Brian doesn't move but everyone else does = True. The music video features them in the Casper house I think, lol?

Remarkable 90's Facts: Favorite Backstreet Boy? Kevin. Hottest Spice Girl? Sporty.

New Classes & Jason Mraz

Haha, so the first week and a half of classes are done. My classes will definitly be handleable this semester. I have Ed Planning with a Santa Claus-like former-principal who has devoted whole class periods so far to telling stories and we got nothing serious done. Then I've got Japanese II, which I need to devote more study time to because I am falling a little behind with the vocab quizes every other day. And I have Ed Equity and Excellence, which I thought would be awful with a bitchy teacher and big projects - but she seems nicer and its more focused on discussion, which means I got to use my labtop all period - mwahahaha. Also taking Content Reading, or how to teach from a book by not teaching from a book -- and I finally got that class' textbook the other day. Lots of reading for that class (surprise). And finally, Macroeconomics - which is by far my hardest class, cause I don't remember squat from microeconomics.

Hahahaha, this was Patsy's idea, I just made it a reality.

Video of the Day: "Outdoors" by Jason Mraz. No, Not I'm Yours -- Outdoors. It's a parody... sort'v, of I'm Yours made for Sesame Street that appears to be going outside rather than staying inside! Lol, I love how Jason Mraz is just doing his laundry at the latino Sesame Street Laundromat... Haha, I had completely forgotten how ridiculous this show was.

Quote of the Day:
"There is a chance, however slim, that my ironic and detached nature could be misconstrued as jerkiness." - Salem the Cat, though I feel I can personally relate to this quote - lol.

"I am sick and tired of my phone, ba--b-y..."

Just finished a Verizon survey, and let me rant and praise about them for a minute. First of all, several months ago just before leaving for Korea I wanted to decide on which phone to get - a blackberry storm or an iPhone. Message to past Andrew: SHOULD HAVE GOT AN iPHONE! Ugh, they are so awesome and get awesomer every day. The Blackberry storm? Gets more annoying every day. The other day mine broke and suddenly stopped working and I took it to the place. The guy (Jerimiah I think) was actually AWESOMELY helpful! Much cooler than this annoying dick manager there who is full of himself with his rocker haircut who makes my life complicated whenever I see him. They replaced the phone which was insured, and all is good, just had to replace my contacts.

Verizon's network is said to be better than AT&T's, but I'm willing to risk it. I've gone through tons of technical issues with my Storm, for a long time (before a download) it wouldn't answer the phone when I pressed talk to answer a call, and half the time it wouldn't even ring when someone called - it'd just vibrate a missed call after it happened! ARR, irritating. Sarah had to call me back a second time so often - what if that was a more important number, like when American Eagle hired me I literally had to think "thank god my phone answered the first time." I shouldn't have to worry about my cell phone ANSWERING CALLS.

The internet works fine on it, but I don't have "apps" per sé. Even one of my favorite programs from my old phone, V-CAST Song-ID (where you hold a phone to a song to ID it) never works on my Storm. I downloaded it, then it just pauses when its recording and I have to reset it. UGH.

Anyway, I thought it'd be interesting to look back at the cellphones I've had for the past few years. I admit, I was spoiled growing up - and convinced grandpa to get me a cellphone pretty young. Like, Middle School young - so it was the very start of when kids had cellphones. My first phone's didn't really have ANY special things about it that I can remember, but it died when me and Amanda explored Vista Construction Site and while running home slipped out of my pocket into a puddle. Luckily, the guys who paintball there found it and charged it and called me (he happened to own the exact same phone!) But since we'd lost the charging cable, we decided it was time to get Phone #2.

A nokia, this one actually had 3 games on it! Oh snap! This one lasted it's fair share, but there wasn't much special about it. This was the first phone of mine that could change faceplates. (Trying desperately to even find a picture of it online!) Here we are, the Nokia 5110. Lol, this site says it had a memory of "5 dialed, 5 received calls." Hilarious. I used the dark gray or dark blue (far left) covers.

After that one (which i replaced saying David broke it, in reality it just got very very old.) I don't think they sold a replacement part for it any more so we switched. Then came the first flip-phone! This one I kept in a phone thing on my belt and lasted me til Freshman year I think? Hm, I can't find the exact file on this awesome phone history site, but this one comes pretty darn close. Here we have the first internet on a phone, and first camera. Man, that was an improvement.

Then there was the "Alias". This one actually did rock, and I miss it. If only it didn't shut itself off when I was txting later in its life. This one was of course followed by the Blackberry Storm.

Song of the Day: "Telephone" by Lady Gaga, feat. Beyoncé. (Lawls! Get it. It's a phone theme.) Haha, I love this song - even made part of it my ringtone. The other night at a party we were listening to it and my phone went off, I'd predicted that a second earlier actually and requested the song so it's no cosmic coincidence. (I should note, I don't think there is a music video for this song - the one I linked to appears to be a remix of Beyonce and Lady Gaga's "Video Phone" and other Lady Gaga videos. It doesn't really make sense other than that, lol.)

"Call when you want,
but there's no one home,
and you're not gonna reach my telephone!
Out in the club,
and I'm sippin' that bub,
and you're not gonna reach my telephone!"

Have a m-A.E. Christmas!

Hahaha, so if you've ever shopped at an American Eagle Outfitters, you know they have music playing in the background. Well, as someone who worked there for a few months during the Christmas season, you quickly realize it's the same so-many songs over and over (as opposed to a radio station. Which, to be fair, also plays the same so-many songs over and over.) But I digress.

Anyway, during my orientation they switched to the Holiday CD (what a good metaphorical change of gears...) and since then I really wanted to make a list of the songs. That list has found it's way to the internet, and I wanted to repost it here so as to come back to it and refer at some point.

Abandoned Hotel in Kent

WooHoo! First abandoned building of the year is a hotel in Kent that I've been meaning to explore for a while now, but since me and Sarah had been sitting around doing nothing but watch Veronica Mars for DAYS now - we felt the DIRE need to get up and be active.

I first noticed this hotel, oh, I want to say a little over a year ago going to a Circle K thing. It looked abandoned then, and it still looks abandoned now. Tons of rooms, and it's connected to a convention center. Sure it was 11 degrees out, but I figured I'd better "mark my territory" so to speak.

A view from the side, it was a square with the middle boxed in. We figured we'd better avoid the outer ring if possible, as there were two Very-much still active hotels within eyes sight. The doorways on the right let us into the center which featured:
The courtyard. Some trees, a pool, a hot tub, a pool house, and a connection to the convention center. I'll take this moment to point out that my blog is meant to supplement my Facebook pictures, so none of those are on here and none of these are on there (or so I am to do.)
Here we have a better view of the pool, the western inner-wall of rooms...This F*$%IN shard of metal kept scratching against the floor in the wind! It was the CREEPIEST SOUND, very annoying, but added an awesome eerie feel to the place which was already, as implied, abandoned. Also annoying was a smoke alarm in one of the rooms that was going off, but no fires in sight. I hate when people go to abandoned places to light them on fire, that takes the exploration awesomeness element out of it.
Almost all the rooms were locked, and I try to avoid actually breaking anything at these places if I can. I go for the exploration, and the occasional memento, not to let loose my inner vandal. Here the pool chairs are stored in a room. Oddly, half the rooms looked like they were made and ready for guests, the other half like they'd been slept in and not fixed.
Inside the pool house. Nothing special in there, the 11 degree cold had gotten to me and Sarah by now. Nothing much seemed to be left inside.

This suite had a table that appeared to have evidence of McDonalds and a box of tea as the last meal enjoyed in there.
Okay, this one's creepy! I was looking through the pics, snapped on of inside the boiler room -- look closely at the junk on the right. WOah, faces! Creepy! There's an ugly woman on a picture on the right, visible on the Facebook pictures.

One of the rooms which was unlocked had a really creepy poem inside it. This is most of it, there was more with a picture of a tree below this, and some more inside the closet. But this kinda gives ya the gist of it.
And here's part of the restaurant window in the convention center, the tables still have used napkins on them. I'm always weirded out by the state of places that seem like people just up and left. Weirded, in a good way!

Song of the Day: "Top 25 Pop Remix" I believe by "Yonkis Com". The other day on the way home from Barley House (after horrible service, over priced food, and the longest wait between refills you'll ever see in an empty restaurant...) there was a remix of the top songs of 2009 on the radio! I went searching for it, and I found this - I'm not certain it's the same thing, but regardless I like this! It's mainly the beat of "I Gotta Feeling" mixed with all the popular songs of 09 that I listened to, like "Loves Knocks You Down", "Boom Boom Pow", "The Climb", "Poker Face", "Love Story", "My Life Would Suck Without You", "Halo", etc. Haha, its basically a remix of my song-of-the-day's for the year.

Quote of the Day: Haha, after watching the entire season 1 of Veronica Mars (which I got for Christmas) with Sarah - I've got a couple quotes from the first season I chuckle at I'll include.

"It sounded like a falling body. It really freaked me out."

"Would you describe the sound as Hitchcockian?"

- Veronica, discussing the noises upstairs with Keith

"Meg, you're the last good person at this school. I'd believe cartoon birds braided your hair this morning."

- Veronica to Meg

"You should have consulted me first."

"What did you want me to do, consult you in pig-latin? He was standing right there!"

- Sheriff Lamb and Keith, after questioning a suspect

"Would it be weird for me to start my own drinking game? Like I have to do a shot every time someone asks for my help?"
- Veronica to Logan

Happy New Year!

What's my New Year's Resolution? I want to be less ashamed of my family. For years I've been pi$$ed off at their antics and shenanigans visit after visit. But this year I want to be able to invite people over unafraid that mom is wearing hand-me-down guys' clothes, covered in bleach stains or the most recent development of disgust that I WON'T EVEN MENTION! Lets just say next time I go home, I am DEFINITELY taking mom clothes shopping!

But back to positives, had a fun night partying with the roommates at our house in Akron. This is Kat's last (and really our only) big party at this house! Eh, maybe not the MOST successful party, but I think we got what we were goin for.

Video of the Day: This video is technically an upcoming movie, but lets just split it into two: THE Upcoming Toy Story 3 preview has been released! It sound average, but I'll definitely see it.

Upcoming Movie of the Day: This preview is odd, and there's an entire news article about how they're not even sure whats going on in this film. My analysis? "The Inception" is about a girl who can some how psycho-kinetically create environments.

House Perk of the Day: Kyuhun is going to be our new fourth housemate to replace the outgoing Kat! Yay for more Korean stuff!

Song of the Day: Empire State of Mind by Jay-Z feat. Alicia Keys. Haha, I love this song. Well, like the first 3/4ths -- I don't like Alicia Keys' solo part, its pretty boring. But this was the hit of the New Years celebrations in Times Square for obvious reasons.
