General UpdateSo this summer I have not been on the computer much, and when I'm not around the computer much I post a lot less. As many people have noticed, I have become a lot busier recently. I fly for 3 hours per day, have two classes in the morning, work all day on Saturdays, and usually try to get out to Cedar Point on Sundays. School ends this week, so I should have some more free time just in time for Quakecon to take it away.
On July 15th, I got my instrument rating so I can fly into clouds and all kinds of bad weather in direct attempts to fail at crashing. Now I am working towards my commercial certificate, which will allow me to fly for hire. I want to have it finished by Aviation day at the KSU airport, which is in the middle of September.
In other news, which I am sure is no news to anyone, everyone is playing fucking World of Warcraft all the time, which I find immensely boring. Feel free to call me when you all stop that. I miss the UT2k4 clan thing we had going, and would love to start that up over skype or whatever you are using. I want to have one more minilan before Quakecon. Rick and I are, after all, competing in the Doom 3 and possibly the Quake II tournaments. I am so pissed that when I can finally go to Quakecon, they stop the Quake III Tournaments.
Wendy asked me to work at Resnet for the rest of summer, but I don't think I will be able to. I don't have enough free time since I need to relax a little. I got a lot accomplished this summer, but at the price of my free time. Every summer is pretty much the same for me, with me being at Geauga Lake all the time in the past.
I'd like to go to the Linux and Radio clubs at Akron, once again if I have the time. I'll have to see what my work schedule is, but since I took summer classes, my senior scheule is looking pretty light. I'm finished every day at 4:30pm if I don't have to work that night. I'd like it if Jo/Rick would keep me informed of that.
Speaking of Jo, Rick told me that he started playing Worlds of Warcraft for the sole reason of pissing me off. This makes me feel so good, as I'm sure you can imagine. I don't know if that's still his motivation, or if he actually enjoys the game now. I guess I'm just next on the chopping block. First he cut Yash out, then he cut Codex out, and now I'm next. I know I don't get to see him much, but I really don't wish for this to happen. I still consider Jo a very good friend. Everytime I talk to him recently, he seems to have a way to push my buttons. The most recent example was when I had to ask him a question about DNS over instant messanger. It's difficult to tell tone over the internet, but what I got was this "Oh my god I can't believe he's asking me this, what a noob" attitude when I was geniuinely asking him a question. Jo, I hope you read this, I'm sorry if I pissed you off in any way. And I'm glad you're getting into games again! :D Don't know why you ever went into gaming relapse, but you should come to a LAN!
Well, I gotta run off to the airport already.
