At Last! An Update!
Sorry I haven't updated in a while.
Before I could use the excuse that I was busy with school work and stuff,
but now it's summer, so the only thing I can say is that I've been really
lazy and haven't wanted to bother updating - too much stuff. Of course,
the longer I wait, the more stuff there is to put up here, so I'll just
kinda sum it up with one nice, large update (most recent to least):
That makes it official! Done
with High School forever! I graduated last Wednesday, and I felt
it was my duty to do something strange, since nobody else did. I
put my arms together through the sleeves of my gown like a monk, then did
a bunch of bows in every direction when I was on stage. Wonder if
any of those pictures turned out...
Paintball II Demo
I put together a nice set of action
scenes from a Paintball II DM game, added music, special effects, etc.
If you have Digital Paint Paintball II, you can download this
one, or you can get the standalone
one (larger file size, but you don't have to download the mod to watch
it - why you wouldn't have PB2 is beyond me, but anyway... it's here).
Auguste went with me to prom this
year. I should have some pictures up in the About section
here sooner or later. It was pretty fun. We had lots of food
and The Matrix playing at the party afterward.
Friday, June 2. At last - the
final day I needed to go to school (other than graduation stuff).
This was a good one (May 20).
We had 8 people (3 of which were Andrews) and consumed 4 large pizzas.
Tak brought his plasma ball, and we discovered that when aluminum foil
is added, it's powerful enough to burn flesh. I've got some pictures
of that party - should have them up eventually (About section).
The AP Environmental Science exam
was really easy, especially considering I didn't take the class. :)
AP Biology was... well, it was AP Bio. I really don't know how I
did on that one. AP Computer Science AB was a little more difficult
than I expected. About every other or every 3rd multiple choice question
dealt with BigO, which was something I didn't study much, and all the free
response questions dealt with apstack and apqueue, which were the other
things I didn't study much. I guess I'll just hope for the best.
Yay! I got the Palmetto Fellows Scholarship,
which is like $5k/yr. Unfortunately it means I don't get the Life
scholarship (can't have both) which is $1k/yr, but hey, I'll take it! :)
I also got the Prince Alumni Scholarship from Clemson ($1000, I think).
I've still got a couple more to apply for, hopefully I'll get them.
Oh, yeah, and I wrote a little thing
about Grad Nite a while back and never linked it. You can see it
If ham comes from a pig, does Hamlet
come from a piglet?
Link o' the Day
- Some of those illustrations in the airplane safety guide are a little,
well... just look at it and see. Worth a visit :)
