Ok yes, I have descended into the great abyss of live journal lameness. I plan on starting each entry with a quote, and I figured Q's line to Picard from "All Good Things..." would be quite appropriate considering how much I dislike livejournals. I figure this will be a temporary thing until I get off my lazy butt and resurrect my webpage, so hopefully this will help speed that process up. Until then, just bear with these short, and sometimes lengthy bs sessions.
The idea of being able to post my thoughts through a livejounal is actually kind of appealing now that I think about it. Since all I can do is write (and poorly at that) when I eventually do get my webpage back up it will just basically be stuff I write and uh, more stuff I write. But alas, this is still a livejournal, that makes it sux automatically doesn't it??????? Hee, guess I'll just have to get my page up faster than the speed of light. Ok, time to fill you in on aspects of my dull life!!!
The great job hunt of 2003
Hooray since I had to bend over regarding school this semester, I have had to look for a job, yes! I've only been seriously looking for a job for about 9 days now and after sending out roughly 23+ resumes in during those days, I have gotten approximately 0 replies. That wouldn't be discouraging at all if I wasn't applying for dumb entry level positions! Oh well, I don't really have much of a choice but to keep trying, but it is still stupid and retarded and dumb and lame and other stuff too. I'll keep you updated (even though you don't care) about how the job hunt of 2003 goes!!
Dark Cloud 2
DUDE, WHERE DID THIS GAME COME FROM??!? Ok I rented Dark Cloud 2 yesterday expecting a decent game based off of the review over at GameSpot and wtf, this game is a hell of a lot better than I thought it would be. I'll talk about it more after I've had more time to play it but so far all I can say is, rent this game at least, and buy it if you are azn.
The Demon Haunted World
I want to briefly discuss The Demon Haunted World written by Carl Sagan. I say briefly because a livejournal entry would never do justice to this masterpiece of writing. The Demon Haunted World is hands down the best book I have ever read in my entire life. I've been an admirer of Dr. Sagan ever since I first read Cosmos (twice now) and while Cosmos was more like a light textbook about astronomy, history, and even some physics, The Demon Haunted World is basically Dr. Sagan's viewpoint on science in general. If you didn't know, Dr. Sagan was one of the foremost astronomers of the modern age and in my opinion he could very well be the most influencial astronomer of all time.
But I digress, this book had such a huge impact on me that I feel it should be a mandatory read for all students in highschool. Dr. Sagan examines science in many ways and uses his extensive background in science to help explain in laymans terms such things as the scientific method, critical thinking (I mean real critical thinking, not the pseudo thinking a lot of university students like to do), pseudo science and how it hinders our potential, and he even talks a little bit about the political impact complacent and lazy thinking can have on society in the book too. Those are just a few highlights though, and of course the actual book goes into much more detail about those topics and many more as well. I suppose what I am trying to say is, do yourself a favor, read this book. Even if you are a close minded conservative thinking person, this book will shed some light onto just how wrong you are to be that way, even if you do try to ignore it. I could go on forever about the merits of this book, it was the first book that actually excited me to read it in years. I will eventually get around to doing a full review type essay on The Demon Haunted World, but for now I guess this crappy halfassed summary will have to do.
Ok this entry is getting long and that is wrong.
Hey, that rhymed.
