Oh Boy

My friend got me the new expansion for World of Warcraft the other day. I told myself I wasn't going to play that game ever again, but in order to not offend, I started back up. Things are way different in the WoW now. I feel like I just started to play the game again for the very first time. A lot can change in a year I have found out. Oy.

What a last few days.

My apartment building's sewage pipe blew up, so I haven't had water in my place since Monday. So I've been showering at the gym, sleeping in a hotel and at my girlfriends place. I couldn't do my dishes or laundry, I would have to walk to different buildings to use the restroom. It was awful. But now that I have water I am making up for the lack of it, which would be greatly frowned upon by my city. But Portland can suck it!

But now that my life is back to normal, more or less anyways, it's time to get back on my exercise routine. I just bought some protein supplement so I can get big, and hopefully burn off the fat that has been on my body since I was 9 or so.I managed to lose like 50 pounds when I was a sophomore in high school, I've put that weight back on, but it's been in bone and muscle mass, but I still have a gut, and love handles and such; now I'm set on getting rid of it. With it being winter break, I have to focus on my health. In a time when people indulge and eat more then they need and do very little exercise, I need to do the opposite. My health depends on it, and my self-esteem as well, at a probably greater level than my health even.

I hope things go well this break, I hope my girlfriend and I spend time, and due to my exercise I get happier, which will affect us, which is good. I'll probably keep you posted on how things are going.

New Layout

Not like you guys really care, but as you can see there is a new layout to the blog. Like it or leave it, I don't care. The content will still be the same, which has no real common trend; but does life ever really follow a strict pattern?

Finals Week

In an hour I take my first final, Personality Psychology. It's going to be cake, then tomorrow I have Communications, and Thursday is Statistics. I think I'm going to just go in and write in random numbers for my Stat's test. I'm going to fail the class regardless of how well I do, so there is no point in wasting all my brain power on the class. Stat's can go to hell. But my other two will be fun and interesting. Let's hope I do well on these, I need to A's to make up for the F I'm sure I'm going to get. Cross your fingers!

I want nothing more than this.

I want to be like one of the men in a Hemmingway novel. They are always the most honorable men regardless of their situation. They are authentic macho's no doubt. They do what they have to do and don't complain, they do whatever it takes to support their families, and they respect others. The Old Man and the Sea is probably the greatest example of masculinity of all time. That was how I was introduced to that amazing novella, my college writing teacher told me that the book "will teach you how to be a man," and he was right. I've read it 6 times now and still learn something new about being a true, good, honorable and respectable man.

My hero. My idol. My favorite.

What would happen if?

I woke up this morning with this thought, and don't think I'm some sort of sick fuck for thinking this. What would happen if a baby was to be abandoned in the jungle, and got raised by some gorillas? Something like this has happened before, with a child being raised by wolves (, I would wonder if the child would be capable of surviving in one of these kind of situations? If only this experiment would be actually doable in the world today. With IRB's (Institutional Review Boards) strict rulings for ethics, there is no way anything of this nature could be approved, and no one would be willing to give up their child for this study. But I bet the child would be able to develop fairly well, and then after the experiment, they would be able to almost successfully transition the child into the normal world. If they can teach lower primates how to use sign language, I feel they would be able to have a child who was raised by apes learn how to act more human then many would think.

Like I said, don't think I'm some sick fuck for this. I can't help what I started thinking when I woke up this morning.
