I feel like I've been neglecting this thing. I've had it in mind for the last few nights, but either I've been 1. busy with something else or 2. too tired and/or sleepy to bother. But I'm writing now and darnit, I'm going to make an honest effort to write more reguarily. Lets put my goal at a new entry at least every other day. *determination*

Lets see.... School's going fine. Haven't really gotten into anything yet. The art classes are taking their time starting up, as we can't go straight into things without some explaination of the mediums and because of the fact that not everyone has the necessarily materials. ^_^; I have them though. ^_^ Eh... really not much to say on that front....

Yesterday, I had a grand ol' time with the buds. At about 5:30ish, we went to a nearby park to play some tennis. Let me reinterate for those who do not know, but I'm not fond of sports, nor am I any good at them. I'm playing it only because my friends are playing. All things considered though, it isn't bad. My friends and I have a good time playing and messing around. I really enjoy being with friends, so I suppose you could say I have fun. Hah... I think that's the first time I've really said that playing a sport is fun.... Well, it's probably not the act of playing a sport itself that's the fun part, so I'm fine. ^_^

Directly following our little escapades with sports, we headed to the movie theatre to see this one movie entitled Mambo Italiano. It's one of those smaller movies that are currently only in limited release. What is it about? Well, think of something like Greek Wedding, as in it pokes some playful fun at the Italian culture, but with a slightly less than usual main couple. It's a gay couple. It's quite a fun movie. Not one of my favorites, but it was entertaining and genuinely funny, so if your interest is piqued, I don't think it's a bad idea to go out and see it. ^_^

I've been doing soldering project recently. That's unusual because, well, I generally never do soldering projects. ^_^; Over the last week, I've undertook two projects: the assembly of an American-style arcade stick and the modding of my Dreamcast (which I've put off for three oddwhat years ^_^;). Just a while ago, I finished both. I would have finished sooner, but I only got the mod chip for the DC yesterday and I needed to rewire the arcade stick because it wasn't reading inputs consistently. So, with some time I had today, I sat myself down and did some quality soldering. I'm finally feeling better about my soldering skills. Been doubting them for a while, but I didn't make any mistakes that I can tell, so yay! XD I'm really getting the hankering to mod my Xbox and PS2 now.... XD

Unfortunately, I think I'll need any money I can for a new video card. You see, I intend to play Final Fantasy XI for PC. In fact, I already have it pre-ordered. ^_^ However, my current Nvidia GeForce4 MX420 is far too weak to run the game decently. Thus, before its release on the 29th of October, I need to get myself a new card or else I'm doomed to play it with horrendous slowdown. -_- That's why currently, I'm eyeing the GeForceFX 5900 Ultra.... XD If not, then maybe the RADEON 9800 Pro.... XD Aw man, I can see the big "withdrawl" entry in my online banking statement right now.... ;_; Man, what I do for gaming....

Well gamers need their supplies and they can't let a little thing like a big withdrawal get in the way. I pay too much for games all the time and I don't have a job [*only 15 yrs old*] I blow the only money I get from 'rents and that's never good.
Anyways, good luck w/ getting what you need.
