My new computer parts come in tomorrow! Say hello to my monster i7-3930k six core, my ASRock Extreme6 mobo, and Hyper 212 Evo cooler. $765 well spent. I guess working my ass off all break paid off big time.
I also get to finally go home this Friday night! I’ve been stuck working in San Antonio with little to no Internet, very few video games, and no loud music to play when I’m feeling productive for the past month. Luckily my friends and girlfriend have kept me occupied and happy. But damn do I miss my own place and my own space.
Glad I’ll get to go back knowing I had a good break though.
Previously: I was catching up with one of my friends from high school over Facebook and she previously mentioned that she’s running a brokering essential service business now and that I should check it out sometime. Of course being old friends I said I’d love to come see it sometime. She also mentioned that they were meeting with clients to capitalize on the deregulation of energy in Texas soon and stuff like that. So good for her.
Fast forward to today: I respond to one of her messages on Facebook. 5 minutes later she calls me telling me that she’s meeting with an executive at that moment to whom she threw out a recommendation in my favor and he wanted to talk to me on the phone and arrange a meeting. Uh wat. So I talk to this guy, his name is Daniel Kim, and it turns out he’s an executive for Woodside Energy, an energy company based in Houston. The whole time he’s bombarding me with how he got my name and wants to arrange a meeting in Austin on Tuesday to see if I’d be interested in becoming involved.
I was planning to be in Austin on Tuesday night to hang out with my brother so it’s not that much of a hassle I suppose. Plus my brother’s coming with me so it’s a little less nerve wracking. But I’m still all nervous as shit now because I have no idea what’s going to be asked or why exactly I’m meeting with them. Plus working in energy doesn’t really interest me. I guess the worse that can happen is that I say no, but still, nervous city. Normally I’d probably decline something like this if it were from some random guy without context, but since it was a recommendation from a friend I kind of have to humor it at least.
The extra big downside is that I have to wear professional clothes, which equates to me having to shave. Damnit. Now I’ll be nervous AND my face will be cold.
Why the fuck would you start a game of League when you’re on a 20 minute raid break on WoW and then just afk in the fountain as soon as your raid starts back up?
Him: LOL I just afk’d in game a few hours ago while on raid break.
Me: So you just left the game and became the reason why your team lost that game? That’s an incredibly shitty move, it’s not even funny
Him: It wasn’t important, I had to get back to raiding
Me: I see that, but why in the fuck would you start a game and then just afk in the middle of it?
Him: I don’t really care about the other people, I can just sit in the fountain all game and not care
Me: You’re exactly the kind of gamer I hope burns in hell for your stupid selfish actions. I wouldn’t want to play games with you if you’re just going to pull shitty moves like that
Him: Aw cmon, it wasn’t important it’s just a League game
Me: Yeah, a game in which you let your teammates down because you’re a selfish fuck. WoW is just a game too yet you don’t flake out of raiding, so how about you not pull shitty selfish moves like that in other games?
Him: …Cmon, don’t be mad at me
Me: It’s more of that fact that you can’t own up to being a shitty person and refuse to even admit that it’s a dick thing to do
I’ve decided to stop being unproductive. I’ve thought about it previously, so fuck it, let’s try it.
I waste a lot of my time during the day that gives me no real benefit other than entertainment. Let’s try changing that.
- Limit my time in front of my computer to studying and organizing. As well as very limited game/social media time
- Study more and catch up on/get ahead of school and life
- Start jogging like I swore to myself I would
- Plot out my weekly meals with complete nutritional information
- Get at least 8 hours of sleep a night. I’m tired of being tired and I want to know what not being sleep deprived is like
I’m doing this as a favor to myself.
Let’s see what happens.
Oh shit! I’m only 15 pounds away from maxing out at 200!
Let’s make this happen!
It’s always funny to me how my room constantly goes back and forth between “Lan Mode” and “Living Mode”.
- Buy an Android Tablet (Done next week)
- Buy a 32 inch tv to mount above my battle station
- Put Ubuntu on my laptop
- Learn to Overclock

- Beat Bioshock 1 and 2
- Do my hardcore run of Dead Space 2
- Marathon all of Avatar: The Last Airbender so I can start watching Korra
- School shit
- Drive back to San Marcos and figure out why the fuck my Minecraft server is down.
- Summer Slaughter tour
It seems like I always just fuck it up.
Maybe I should stop.

Good, I needed this because as of now suicide mode is activated. Three exams this week. Challenge accepted.
