Quick post from skool. Gonna go over to Ben’s tonight, Sam, Weilin, Jared, and Zach will be there, so it should be fun. I’m bringing my Xbox and renting a copy of Halo so we can LAN. I’m bringing some ther random food-related items, too.

I did do all those push ups and crap, and I’m disgusted at how out of shape I am. The way I used to do it, is I’d do like 50 or 60 sit ups in a row, the do 20 or 30 push ups, and just repeat the process until I kinda died. I could only do a total of 75 crunches and 40 push ups. That’s not too cool. But I suppose I’m better off than I could be.


I’m posting from skool, at the moment. I use my study halls to go to the Math Lab, which has some 20 G3’s in here. [For those of you who don’t know, G3’s are mid-range macintosh computers] Anyways, I’ve been pretty bad about posting. Time hasn’t been very kind to me as of late.

Wednesday was the same old deal, nothing of great importance, though it does mark that it’s less than one week till RotK! ^^ I can’t wait. I downloaded a lot of Halo movies that I lost a while back in my format. It’s been very amusing to watch them. ::sigh:: If only I had the skill to mod an xbox. Oh well! Maybe if I ever decided to bring up the money for the chip, I could. But for now, I just remain a Halo phreek.

Today is Thursday, which is thoroughly dissapointing, becase I could have sworn yesterday was Thursday. Which means today would have been Friday….except its not. So I have to endure today and tomorrow of skool. That will be…….difficult.

Random note: I despise one button mouses. Every mac in this skool has a one button mouse, and it’s awful. Death to them all! These mouses are optical, but, that’s not very special anymore.


I AM SO DARN TIRED! Wednesday night held no sleep. Thursday night held no sleep. I can’t go to sleep to 3:00 tonight. What fun is THIS? So very tired. Soooo tired.

The LAN party rocked. It SO rocked. I only placed below 3rd, maybe, 3 or 4 times. I ate like 4 pieces of pizza, and then I came home and ate a piece of chocolate roll, then I had two glasses of milk, another coke, I mean, WOW, I’m like, full. And very tired. As a side note: I’m writing this at midnight, but it will display as Saturday. Ugh. Saturday. One more day of break. Then 3 full weeks of skool. NOT COOL!

Back to LotR I go.

Today was good, but at the moment I feel sluggish. Not to mention I was somewhat irked by how people misinterpret things, especially about the conversation I had yesterday. I said this before, I am not homophobic. Look at it this way: just because I disagree with most of my friend’s politcal ideas, does NOT mean i fear them. ‘Nuff said.

Yesterday was pretty good. I didn’t go to skool, but it’s a long story, which I will proceed to explain. On Sunday night, I got 5 hours of sleep. That’s about 3 hours of a sleep deficit. On Monday I got 5 hours of sleep. That’s now a 6 hour sleep deficit. On Tuesday, I went to a LotR: Two Towers thingy with Ben, and it was 4 hours long. We left at 6:00, and we didn’t get back till 11:30. I had 2 hours of homework left to do. I also had to get up 15 minutes early for the bus. This would have given me 4, maybe 3.5 hours of sleep. That’s over a 10 hour sleep deficit. I can’t run on that. So I stayed home from skool, did homework, and slept for about 12 hours that day. It was very relaxing.

Today, I went to skool, it was a Thursday, and tomorrow is Friday. We have Thanksgiving Break soon, which is really nice. Hopefully, we won’t get lots of homework over the break. Homework defeats the purpose of having a break. It really does. But sleep will be a nice thing to get. I should go do moi homework.


Today didn’t end up being so bad. After an endless argument with my parents, I finally went over to Weilin’s at 3. We played Halo, CS, ping pong, it was fun. Steven was there for a while, and so was Sam. It was a definite improvement on my day. But skool comes again tomorrow. Ugh. I don’t want to go to skool.


So bored. I’m avoiding my homework, and I’m just not in the mood for anything right now. I’d like to say life sucks, but I know it doesn’t. I’m just complaining and whining over how utterly lonely I am at times, like this. Nothing is really cheering me up, even though stuff should, though another friend getting pissed at me over his own immaturity doesn’t help. Just so I don’t have to deal with the amazing amount of stress I went through last time I said this, I’m talking about a friend from skool. [sigh] Not a happy mood.


I haven’t done well on updating this week. I keep going to make a new post and something important comes up. I WILL finish the post! Today was good. I got my hairz cut, and I bought myself Jedi Acedemy. It sets me back 50 bux, but my dad owes me 25 bux, and someone from skool owes me 20. It’s all good. Tomorrow is Revolutions, I’ll be gone all day. I go from skool to the mall and stay there till 10:00. I’m gonna get to know that mall pretty well. Anyways, nothing much happened other than I have significantly less hair than before today. Good day, though. So was yesterday. Good dayz. TOMORROW IS GONNA ROXX!


Interesting day. All my days are interesting, actually, but I can’t think of a better word to describe my day, or I just don’t feel like putting forth the effort. Hehe. Anyways, church was…church. Nothing really happened. Sam, Jesse, Ben, Nolan came over, they played Halo, Sam and I chatted with people online. Overall fun.

Not much has happened today, but that’s ok. Skool tomorrow!

A thing on Chivalry I had saved in my emails, which I like referring to.

The Points of Chivalry:

Justice: Seek always the path of ‘right’, unencumbered by bias or personal interest. Recognize that the sword of justice can be a terrible thing, so it must be tempered by humanity and mercy. If the ‘right’ you see rings agrees with others, and you seek it out without bending to the temptation for expediency, then you will earn renown beyond measure.

Loyalty: Be known for unwavering commitment to the people and ideals you choose to live by. There are many places where compromise is expected; loyalty is not amongst them.

Defense: The ideal knight was sworn by oath to defend his liege lord and those who depended upon him. Seek always to defend your nation, your family, and those to whom you believe worthy of loyalty.

Courage: Being a knight often means choosing the more difficult path, the personally expensive one. Be prepared to make personal sacrifices in service of the precepts and people you value. At the same time, a knight should seek wisdom to see that stupidity and courage are cousins. Courage also means taking the side of truth in all matters, rather than seeking the expedient lie. Seek the truth whenever possible, but remember to temper justice with mercy, or the pure truth can bring grief.

Faith: A knight must have faith in his beliefs, for faith roots him and gives hope against the despair that human failings create.

Humility: Value first the contributions of others; do not boast of your own accomplishments, let others do this for you. Tell the deeds of others before your own, according them the renown rightfully earned through virtuous deeds. In this way the office of knighthood is well done and glorified, helping not only the gentle spoken of but also all who call themselves knights.

Largesse: Be generous in so far as your resources allow; largesse used in this way counters gluttony. It also makes the path of mercy easier to discern when a difficult decision of justice is required.

Nobility: Seek great stature of character by holding to the virtues and duties of a knight, realizing that though the ideals cannot be reached, the quality of striving towards them ennobles the spirit, growing the character from dust towards the heavens. Nobility also has the tendency to influence others, offering a compelling example of what can be done in the service of rightness.

Franchise: Seek to emulate everything I have spoken of as sincerely as possible, not for the reason of personal gain but because it is right. Do not restrict your exploration to a small world, but seek to infuse every aspect of your life with these qualities. Should you succeed in even a tiny measure then you will be well remembered for your quality and virtue.

This day feels like such a blur, and I’m really tired. Woke up at 10:00, our houseguests didn’t leave till noon [about 6 hours after they were supposed to leave], went with Jonathan to see Skool of Rock, was funny, not hilarious, but funny. Other than that, nothing happened. I need sleep.

Today was interesting, to say the least. Went to skool, came back unscathed. Of course, that is until I log on IM. Let’s just piss some more people off, shall we? Critical of everything, not very nice, just not very Tim-like. Sigh, oh well. Not much I can do about it now.


Today was cool. Nothing amazing happened at skool. I got home, owned in Halo. I’ve started teaching noobs how to play. I set up 1v1 games, and give them tips as I kill them. It gets me better at my headshots, and helps improve gameplay. I really enjoy teaching people. They love the tips on how to get better. By the end theyve usually skill killed me one or two times.

I’m under the impression my parents are trying to get rid of my tomorrow. My dad was urging me to go the a Boy Scout campout, which I didn’t have the equipment or the time to go on. Greg Wilson then comes over and asks me if I wanna play paintball. Normally I wouldn’t suspect anything, but, I dunno. We have houseguests here for the weekend, which I suspect is part of the reason. They normally wouldn’t care if I spent all my time playing Halo, but they’re sleeping in MY room [grr]. In any case, the circumstances don’t quite fit together. They may want to talk to these houseguests about me, and they’ve probably realized by now that I have SOME way of hearing the conversation in the house. I’m used to eavesdropping on all their conversations, as evil as that sounds. Oh well. A cool day, in any case.


Really good day, excepting one big mistake I made to a friend at skool. Apparantly there was quite a bit of confusion on who I was talking about when I said this, so I’ve made a point of it not being anyone from church. I just wish I would think about the what I say a bit harder…being in a bad mood is never an excuse for being unkind.


I wish one of my friends from skool would, come over, or call me, or SOMETHING. I’m so bored! Not to mention I’m procrastinating. I’ve got a project that should take around 5 hours to complete. Hopefully I can get an A on it, though starting it this late will probably give me a B. But that’s still good for a long term project.

[sigh] I need something to distract me for the next few hours…


My wonderful 4 day weekend has arrived, and I can now mock my homeskooling friends as they slave until 2:00! Muhahaha…[power].

This week has been great. I’m finally getting to know some people at my skool. It always starts out with everybody you know being just acquaintences, but I’m getting past that point, and I’m really happy about it. Making new friends is truly one of the more enjoyable things in life.

Sam’s gone for the weekend, which makes me pretty annoyed, for my own reasons. It’s nice having a friend at church and crap that’s in touch with reality. Hopefully I won’t end up being too bored this weekend.

UPDATE: I’m really bored. This weekend aint looking so good. I’ve got a 10-hour research project to do this weekend, 2 lawns to mow, and the regular band of homework. 🙁

UPDATE: Really, really bored. Was reading a friends blog, and wow, I never realized what goes on in his life. To be in his position….I don’t wanna think about it.
