Making Progress Ladies And Gentlemen

I edited some of the sliders on the blue background image to make the text easier to read.  If there's anything else you recommend, go ahead and give me feedback...if anyone is interested in doing such a thing.  I might change back to the more vibrant, older background but we'll see.  I don't think there's anything else I can really do because the default HTML code is only so flexible...good enough as is, I would've never guess I'd have a blog this snazzy six months ago.


Also, I would like to mention the situation with the 33 miners in was a great story, these guys making it out alive, the lengths we go to to save people's lives.  Obviously I'm glad we get a good story like this in the news.  I don't like that some people are making publicity stunts out of this, like internet memes and stuff.  I mean, this isn't Kanye West interrupting the Grammy's or whatever, these are people's lives we're talking about.  If these miners want to go out and be celebrities, that's their choices.  But other people, just back off.



But, I tell you what, I'm going to get personal here.  I'm going to make this rather brief.  This week has just been terrible for me.  No this doesn't have to do with Saints games or sucking at Rock Band, this is new.  Yes, it's not nearly as bad as being stuck in an Chilean underground mine, but it's worse than most.  I've been blindsided by some stuff at school, mainly that I may have missed some English classes due to confusion on AP English credits--my English Literature credits don't apply to regular English...  Therefore I may not graduate this semester as expected.  I feel that I can work my way out of this--I'm going to sit down with the English Department Head and work something out and I've received support from other advisors.  Still, I don't know how this slipped through the cracks, among other things.  Apparently my advisors completely missed it, I don't know...

If I have to go back to college for one more semester (maybe two in a worst case scenario), then I'll just be devastated.  I've been at Southeastern Louisiana University for 4 1/2 years, I've seen everything, talked to everyone, eaten all the cafeteria's time for a new slate.  I want to go to this video game school and pursue my dreams.  I don't want to wait until I'm really old to get there, the time to proceed is NOW, not later.  I'm about 22.6 years old, I don't know how much longer I can postpone this.

This among other things, like my inability to study really well for tests, doesn't really work me up as much anymore.  If anything like this happened a few years back or further, I would panic like all hell.  But now, I'm just incredibly apathetic.  It doesn't really bother me anymore.  Sometimes, you just can't perform like you used to.  Like in basketball, the ball will always bounce off the rim instead of go in.  Or in golf, you can't hit the shot straight.  It's always minute stuff that throws you off.  Anyway, that's all.  I'm not too upset, I'll get through, but I'm not in a really good mood now.  Just tired and burned out.  It's always good to be at home and relax.

I may tell you why I feel so burned out later, but let's just say that I've worked extremely hard for the last eight or nine years of my life and now I think it's finally caught up to me.
