Sorry that Stephen sent you to your early graves, that is. What Mr. Bauer and Mr. Bennet don’t know, is that Peter has the fortunate capability of stopping time, teleporting, regenerating, hurling fistfulls of lightning, flying, reading minds, freezing things, moving objects with his mind, exploding like a nuclear bomb, painting the future and growing perfect man stubble JUST TO NAME A FEW. How anyone could think two gun wielding maniacs could ever take such a reckoning force is beyond me.
Plus, even in the worst case scenario you DID somehow manage to even scratch Peter…would you really want the vengence of his mother to crush your like an ant? Think on it.
You have until October 28th to surrender your Empire and all it’s riches.
After a crazy old man in a dress told me that I couldn’t pass, I had no other choice but to head back to the base and figure out where things stood from there. It was then, in this moment that I decided it was time to relocate my troops to another area of the battle field, and call in the most helpful person on the planet.
Attack, PETER! Explode Stephen and his army.
I am officially launching an attack on Planet Stephen. Your Empire will fall! >:)
It started off as a chilly day, but I didn’t think it would get colder as the day went on. Boy was I wrong…when I went outside to catch the after school bus I could see my breath! I heard we might actually have a chance of seeing a few snowflakes tonight which would be pretty cool. I’ve never disliked the snow, but I do grumble occasionally when I need to wait outside in the morning to catch the bus to school. Nothing sucks more than having to wake up from your warm bed to stand outside in nature’s “coolest” weather. The temperature is supposed to drop down to -2 degrees celsious (about 24 fahrenheit) tonight which is probably the coldest it’s been yet where I live. Just a few more words on this: Brr! Brr! Brr!
I had a pretty lazy day at school today. I couldn’t find my box of contact lenses so I was quite blind today. Film studies was fun because I couldn’t really see the movie and whenever my teacher was talking to me I thought for sure they were looking at other “Ryans” in the room. It was pretty brutal. I could have worn my glasses I suppose, but I’ve never liked wearing them. I think it’s the frames…I’ve had the same frames since grade 7 so I’m pretty sure all I need to do is pick out a new style. In many ways I don’t like wearing my contact lenses because they irritate me to the point of no return and they seem to dry out far too quickly for someone like me. I’m always on the computer, so this is to be expected I guess. Glasses have always been more practical and it’s definitely my first choice if I’m just going to be staying around the house. Frames are a bit expensive from my doctor’s office though, so I guess I’ve just been putting it off for the obvious reason. I just received a pretty nice pay cheque though so I should probably invest a bit of time into looking for a new look. I wonder if I could pull off the HRG look? haha
Ah! Speaking of Heroes, I think they did a pretty good job last night of pulling the storyline back just a little bit. Last night’s episode didn’t seem to be all about the flash. I also like how they wrapped up Hiro’s little ordeal with Ando. I won’t post any spoilers here, but I will in the Community Chat topic so be sure to check it out!
I don’t know how I managed to spend most of this weekend just laying in my bed. I think it’s all of this “darkness” that’s setting in. When the days start to get shorter I start to sleep more altogether, and by the time winter hits I’m even less energetic than I usually am. I should be going to school right about now, but I just spent an awful night on the couch fighting a headache and watching a few old episodes of House. A sore throat was also here to greet me as I sat up this morning from the rather warm impression I left on the sofa. How could I possibly handle school after something like that? I’ll probably spend the rest of today wishing I had some pain killers or some more honey to put into my tea. Actually, I may still have some left somewhere in the upper atmosphere of my kitchen cupboard.
After doing a bit of post-secondary research, it seems that I have quite a journey over the next 6 years of my life. In order to get the education that I want, I’ll be required to do 3 years of college and then 3 years of university to become a computer programmer analyst. That’s a nifty title, if I do say so myself. I’d be happy to bring that up in any conversation, especially since I look like anything but a programmer. I’ve been sort of worried as to what direction I’d like to take my life in, but I think I’m fairly comfortable with this decision. I had considered doing theatre and musical theatre in post-secondary but a few things didn’t seem right to me. The cloud of concern that was troubling me most was the money. A university education is not free, and even worse it’s not cheap. I feel that if you can act, you can act. There isn’t a piece of paper in the world that can make you more talented as an actor. You’ll either have what it takes, or you won’t have it what it takes. I don’t think I’d be able to spend thousands of dollars on a Bachelor of Arts and be able to sleep soundly at night. Some of my friends and family are really upset that I’m not going into school for it, too. It gets worse when I tell them I’m going to be pursuing a career in computer programmer instead. I’ve gotten a lot of mixed reactions over it, because apparently the two don’t seem to mix very well. I’ve hardly seen it as a “milk and water” case though.
I hate to stereotype people, but it’s fairly common to see someone who’s excellent with computers lack in human to human interaction. This is where I think I’ll have an advantage if I choose to follow through with being a “Computer Programmer Analyst”. The film studies teacher at my high school has a brother who is more successful with his programming business because he has also had a lot of experience interacting with people. This ability to be more “personable” is a great aid to his programming skills because he can often clearly convey problems or get his point across to people he may be working with or for. It makes sense to me!
My post-secondary plans are most definitely not set in stone as of this point, so I guess anything is possible. Maybe I should skip all the hard work and win the lottery or something…
I’m an actor and I’m a computer guy. I am not compatible with yard work. Yesterday I was doing my homework and my Dad asked me if I could help him with the yard. I sort of whined and said “Do I have to?” He said “It would be very much appreciated.” I took that for “Yes, you have to.” Anyway, I did all the weed whacking stuff for him. It was pretty hard because I have little upper body strength and the machine isn’t exactly feather light. Plus when you consider I live out in the country and I have about half the globe to trim down it doesn’t make it easy work. Nonetheless, I slapped on some protective eye-wear, threw on my ball cap and started working. I was holding this machine for about an hour and all I could think about was how much it was shaking and vibrating. When I was finished I had a drink with my Dad and I could hardly hold my arm still. In fact, for the next several hours all my arms were doing were shaking slightly. Dinner was slightly odd because I couldn’t hold my food still and I definitely spilled lemonade on me later at night while on the computer. I’m fine now … but it was awful. XD
I’m not opposed to yard work, but I don’t think I’ll ever be volunteering to do something like weed work again. I’d much rather sit on the riding lawn mower and cut the grass or rake leaves. Speaking of leaves, my GOD is it ever beautiful here this time of year. All of the trees are bright orange, red and yellow. It’s really quite amazing! It’s too bad it only lasts a few weeks and then everything is a crunchy brown. Around Halloween there’s no beauty left in anything. I always kick myself for not taking pictures this time of year … I should really get on top of that and start early fall next year.
Let’s just face the truth already … this isn’t Planet Zetaboards at all. It’s Planet Ben. I look down the list of recent entries and over and over again I see “Ben, Ben, Ben, Ben”. I don’t feel bad at all though, because I would much rather read about Ben’s life (and antics) than post about my own. Plus Ben has a refined sense of writing that I couldn’t describe with my current vocabularly. So for now I’ll just say it’s “real real good eh?”
I’m taking a few courses this semester at my high school, and none of them are mandatory for me. It’m finding it extremely difficult to attend this semester simply because I don’t have to be there. I’m 18 years old now (soon to be 19) and legally they can’t do anything about my poor attendance either. It’s quite sad because I really enjoy the lessons I have but I find I can do them more thouroughly from home then I can from school. For example, in my computer programming class I can usually squeeze through 1 lesson a day. This week I stayed home 2 days and ended up completing two chapters on my own. I find that I work a lot better when the pressure of school is gone and I can do things on my own schedule.
Ah, and for the record: Jonathan, yer a silleh kitteh.
