10/24/2002 Archived Entry: "Yah, I OWNED that Paper!"

Any of you remember that writing assignment I had to do for ICS5? You know... when I went to the San Jose Museum of Art? Here's what I got. Yes, I owned that assignment. ^_^ Yes, and remember that I did this the day before. Not to mention that I probably spent a total of three hours on it. And then, most of that time was spent at the actual museum. Yes, I rule. XD Let this be a lesson to all of you: procrastination (and some good BSing skills) gets you places. XD

Something that came up today during my Philosophy class reminded me about something: most people don't know the proper definitions for a metaphor and simile. So for your educational enrichment, I shall now tell you:
Metaphor=a comparison between two dislike objects
Simile=a comparison between two like objects
Yes, a simile does not have to have the words "like" or "as." I repeat, a simile does not have to have the words "like" or "as." As long as the two objects being compared are similar, then it is called a simile. What your grade school teachers taught you is wrong. I surmise that they say such because it makes the concept easier to understand. Because similes generally use the words "like" or "as," it's just easier to explain it in such a manner. I can see what they're trying to do, but they really shouldn't lead on the poor ignorant children for that long.

So aside from school... eh... it's still cold...? Yah, I'm surprised that it wasn't even the slightest bit sunny today. The weather's been changing too quickly lately. I can remember... maybe a week ago, when the days were warm and there was plenty of sun to go around. What the heck happened?

Blah... there really isn't much going on with me. I want some excitement of some sort. My life's basically school and staying in the house and playing on the computer. What a life, eh? That's kinda why I miss high school. Sure, college would be fine, but I don't have any friends. I'm not the type to make friends easily. At least in high school, I was forced to stay in school and see people all day. In college I only see people for maybe an hour and then after class, everyone just goes off along their own way. It's really impersonal. Because of that, I can't seem to make any friends. Me and my loneristic ways.... Oh whatever. I'll probably make a friend someday. Probably.

::sighs::Yah, things have been kinda chaotic at school too. Remember that place where we used to hang out? I don't hang out there anymore, I just spend my lonesome hours in the art class finishing up stuff or the other procrastinating somewhat. So anyway, don't feel left out too much senpai, I'm sure you'll make wonderful freinds at ur new collage. Besides, I read this blog everyday at least you have someone to rant on. ^^;
