Oh my gosh, oh my gosh! Some interesting things actually happened to me today! *gasp*

This morning started like any other morning: I woke up, got onto the computer, and played iRO. ^_^; Then out of nowhere, the phone rings. I went to pick up the phone, half expecting a telemarketer because well, who else would call at about 9:00, maybe 10:00 AM? I was greeted by the voice of a girl asking for me by name. How... interesting I thought. Then she identified herself. It was my imouto: Saga! Sure, she has been trying to call me, but I never really expected her to call today, let alone in the morning of all times. Apparently she had some time, so she decided to give me a ring. How kind of her. ^_^ So yes, we had a short conversation. It was really fun to finally talk to you Saga. ^_^ Make sure to call again. I'm home most of the time now....

Hm... today my sister returned home for the weekend. Why? Because the lunar new year's coming up, yo! Yep, being part of an Asian family, we celebrate this event. Tomorrow the family's going to go out and make visits to the relatives. It's a big new year's tradition thing. It would be kinda nyeh, except for the fact that I get money. Gotta love that tradition. XD Hopefully it'll inflate my bank account enough so that I can take care of the stuff I need to buy and have already pre-purchased ^_^;

Um... would type more, but gotta get back to iRO. I'm alt+tabbed right now. Them orcs be scary things they be....

Yo, anyone reading this thing anymore? ^_^;

What am I up to right now? I'm right about to start on a three to four page paper for speech. It's due tomorrow. ^_^;; Yes, I know, I'm really good at this procrastination thing aren't I? Hey, I've done much worse. At least I got the mad BSing skills to cover. I predict that I'll have this paper done in maybe an hour. Possibly an hour and a half. ^_^ You know... sometimes I wonder where I'd be if I actually applied myself to school. Sure, I make sure I can do the stuff, but I never really try any harder than I have to. I remember having the desire to do extremely good at school and get all those big honors and such, but that all pretty much went down the drain because I'm too darn lazy. That and I just plain gave up. ^_^; Sure, I could have tried harder, but I didn't really see a reason. I was more or less satisfied with going through school, wingin' it and BSing my way through everything. And let me say, I did pretty well for a bunch of BSing. ^_^ Now that I'm in college, this formula is still working for me. As a wee tyke, I always thought that college would be insanely difficult. I suppose they really don't get all that bad until you get to the upper division classes. So, as is the point of this paragraph, I'm writing a paper. I don't know about you, but I think this is a joke. Three to four pages? Not only that, my teacher's making us double space it and use a 12-point font. HAHAHAHA!!! Personally, I'd much rather use a 10-point font. Sure, I'd have to type more, but it'd look so~ much nicer.

I kinda feel like my life's in a rut. There's no excitement these days. I don't know why or how, but high school was an absolute party compared to this borefest. I expected to have at least a few interesting things happening on a daily basis, but nope. Why the heck does everyone else have more logable material? Oh wait... maybe it's because they have lives.... ^_^;

I got BoA's new CD! Yep, the new CD released in Japan. Today. Gotta love having a Kinokuniya along the way to school. XD Personally, I think this is a great CD. Why? Because it has Valenti, Kiseki, and No. 1 on it. How could it not be good? ^_^ Actually, it has a number of other good tracks too. Not only that, but it has a DVD bundled with it with the promotional videos of Listen to My Heart and Valenti. Score! So, I recommend you pick up BoA Valenti. That is... if you like BoA....

As much as I'd like to tell you more about my non-existant life, I have to be getting to that paper now....

So today was the Super Bowl, eh? While the world is all enamored by a bunch of guys smashing into each other trying to get a ball to the other side of the field, I'm here being utterly uninterested. Sports have never been one of my favorite things. Why? I think I've mentioned it before, but I was never good at sports. Either I lacked the coordination or the natural skill. Heck, sometimes it was probably both. Even after starting martial arts at the age of 10, I came to have a decent amount of coordination and control over my body, but I suppose sports demand something other than just control. This can be demonstrated by the fact that I was quite possibly the most controlled sparrer at my kickboxing dojo, but I still sucked at sports like football, basketball, and baseball. Heck, I think the only sports I'm good at are aikido, sanshou (chinese kickboxing), running and swimming. None of them are really team-cooperation type sports. Because of my utter lack of any skill, I always kinda dreaded that period of the day called "PE." I was the stereotypical "last chosen" kid. Maybe not to the extent that you see on an overly simplistic TV program, but I was among the last. And then when we got out there to do our thing, I would quite often let my team down. So back to my point, I wasn't watching the Superbowl. I was talking to my cousin and he asked me if I wanted to join him and a few of my other cousins to watch it, but I firmly declined and he called me a geek. Of course, this cousin always calls me a geek. ^_^; It's ok though. My family's like that. Three of my cousins and I reguarily call one of my cousins a loser. XD But yes, as I was saying, I was called a geek. Not that that bothers me. The label geek has more or less lost most of the stigma attached to it throughout the years as people realized that these "geeks" were their bosses. ^_^ So yes, I'm not a traditional alpha male. I couldn't care less. Go geekhood! Down with sports! ^_^ Where the heck will sports get you in life anyway? Unless you're one of those professional players (or a better) sports won't benefit you in any way. Meh...
