I Saw You On /soc/

So there's this guy I've met online. He seems to be obsessed with an old game on computer. I enjoy computer games very much, but this guy more than likes this particular game. He keeps trying to convince me to play it and I really don't want to. He should take the hint. Maybe I'll send this to him...

CS Itself

Sometimes I wish that I had stuck with my original choice of being a Computer Science major. On my way out of the Engineering building today, I overheard two guys talking about some sort of project they were working on which involved an interesting sounding program. There's something nice about the specific type of math that is involved in the programming world. It's an entirely different way of thinking and it is one that I understand very much.

However, it just doesn't interest me when I imagine working with computers long term. That reminds me of my dad, and nothing against the old man, but that's what he did and I feel like I should be different. My dad didn't do too well in life. He found an amazing women and had some great kids (myself included), but he found a lot of it through luck. He was a brilliant man, but it was his laziness that got him down. I'm very worried about that myself. Oh well, I have to do homework now. If I decide it's worth doing that is...

CS Mishap

So I turned on Skype while in Computer Ethics and there was a loud blast through my speakers. I love it how the teacher paused and then pretended NOTHING happened. The professor had two options. He could have called me out, and he could have pretended it didn't happen. I think it's fantastic that he chose the latter, because it shows me that he does not really like confrontation. I wonder that since he is teaching a one credit course that all of us must take, he feels pressured by the student base to entertain them more than if it was a class that every student chose. Food for thought.

Third Post

I don't understand it when people don't like to mix their foods. When it comes to thanksgiving or any other meal for that matter, I am of the strong opinion that doing anything short of blending the food is delicious.

Day Number What

I almost missed my class this morning... I decided to go back to sleep after my alarm went off. On an unrelated note, I have to go home alone this upcoming weekend in order to take care of my dog while the rest of my family goes to a dance for my sister. I originally considered having a party, but then I realized that I would probably be happier to just stay home on my own with my dog.

As I'm writing this, my psychology professor is talking about children with Down's syndrome. I know that some parents can know that their child has Down's syndrome before they are born and some of those parents decide to abort the baby based on that information. This has caused a lot of controversy in our world today. I personally believe that abortion should be legal. I don't know what I would do if the baby were mine, but I strongly believe that the parents should have that option.

I normally don't express my thoughts to the public, or even people that are close to me. I normally keep my feelings and ideas to myself, where they mingle with each other and eventually become forgotten. Before I bore you with ramblings, however, let me tell you a little bit about myself. I am currently a freshman in college with a planned major of psychology. I have a decent amount of friends, none of which know the true me. I have to hide myself day in and day out because if people did know the true me, how cynical I am and how much I judge those around me, I wouldn't have very many friends. I am very good with computers, and I consistently fix them for a good price. That is how I am currently making my money. My parents are kind enough to pay for college, so I don't have to worry about that.

I doubt that this blog will really reach anyone and there probably won't be anybody who will get the chance to read this, but it feels good to write it down anyways.

I am a man of very radical views and an extremely skewed code of ethics. I know how to conform to society and stay out of everyone's way, but the way society functions is not always how I like it. I won't get into anything specific now, for I have class in half and hour and I still need to shower, but believe me, I'll tell you later.
