I've moved!

Yes, it's true! I've moved from Blogger to Wordpress for the option of more organization!

I can finally satisfy that pet peeve!

From now on, you can find me here, at: http://hawkrider1.wordpress.com

Hope to see you there!

In the world of me.

*Mini-rant*
For the past few days, a friend of mine (he knows who he is), has been pestering me to update my blog. So here it is, I've updated. But for future reference: If I haven't updated bi-weekly, then I have nothing to say. Or I'm busy.
*End Mini-rant*

On to something worth reading.
All my life, people have called me strange. I don't deny that I am. I've imagined scenarios with various characters when I listen to music. Sometimes I would dream about them as well. Over time they've become more developed, come to have names, personalities. I Role play with them, a few I used for Dungeons & Dragons. Most of them have back stories, which I hope to someday make into a game. This isn't the only thing my imagination brings to life. I've brought toys and trinkets to have small stories, I've pretended my calculator was some kind of futuristic car. I've imagined epic battles between stick figures in a doodle. In my world, I am a ninja. In my world, I am the crazy guy down the street. In my world, I am a complete computer geek. In my world I am me.
So the moral of this post: If you have a problem with me, go away. Because I will always be me.

On another note: I was listening to Brian Regan while typing this. (Comedian)

Conversation ender?

We always talk during lunch, my friends and I. What we talk about, though, is a different story. Our discussions range in topic from games to food to asking if record companies really deserve money.

Today, that's what we talked about. It started as a normal talk about what new games are coming out, then it turned into talking about lunch and teachers, then all of a sudden we were talking about record companies and if pirating music hurts the artist.

Honestly, I don't care about pirating music. I don't do it, it doesn't affect me. A couple others in the group were lost as well. So at a point where I deemed it would work, I said something random; in hopes they would forget about their argument, as it had become.

It didn't work, unfortunately. But I did learn something from that. I learned to not try and end a hot debate with a random comment.
Instead, I'll try and end the next one by walking away, or winning (loss is not an option).

Back again

Starting September 2nd.
I go back to school, my first year in high school.

Not a whole lot has happened in the recent days. Besides going to a baseball game, school shopping, and getting stuck in traffic for an hour and a half because of a shooting.

This has been a great summer, and I got to spend a lot of time with friends. I've gone camping, tried a few new foods, read a book, programmed quite a bit, started a facebook, a blog, and a twitter.

As the school year starts up I should have some more to post about. But I may also get busy with the work. So that's my not-so-on-schedule weekly update. See you next week (Probably).

They just won't stop.

They never will.
The world's population has been filled with ignorant people.

And a quote from someone on YouTube:

"No, Ive only been gaming since I was 6. what do I know?
When you say "third person game" to ANY gamer on the face of this planet, he is going to tell you third person shooter like quake, doom, CoD, etc.
go to google and type "third person game" and look at the first result, a wiki for 3rd person shooters. Look at the second result, it explains the definition as (and I quote):
"games that are played from a third person's point of view"
So don't patronize me you ignorant noob piece of sh1t"

End quote. Obviously this person has no idea what they're talking about, my response to this: Epic Fail.

Please people, do yourselves a favor and not say stupid things. Know what you're talking about.

There are plenty more examples that are simple to find. I'm not saying that I'm smarter than everyone, but I know I'm smarter than that.

To catch up

I know it's been longer than a week since my last post, but with all that has been going on, I haven't really thought about it.

The summer seems to be nearing the end. School starts back up in a few weeks, and I'm still not done with C++ or my books.

So far I've done four chapters of C++ coding. Fun, if not tedious (The effects of little errors and the need for exact punctuation and capitalization can be frustrating, or forgetting that one little tiny semi-colon).

Other than that I've done a lot of my Japanese work, and can recognize a few characters from Hirigana right off the bat. Though my speaking of it needs more work... Katakana is a whole other story.

I read The Way of Shadows by Brent Weeks, the first book in the "Night Angel" Trilogy.
Great. Book.

Though I'm not a fan of the cliffhanger, I love the characters and the storyline.
I won't spoil any of it, but I have to say many things were not expected.
I love the darker tone to the book, it's a change from the classic fantasy types that I've read.

Next I'm going to read Treasure Island by Louis Stevenson.
Most people should know this book, and I'm pretty interested in what it has to offer.

About time..

It's about time it finally cooled off, the heat has been unbearable the last few days. With temperatures of 103 and 93, it's been pretty miserable. Now the skies are cloudy again, and it looks like Washington (as it's supposed to).

My friend has been over since Monday, and together we've beaten all four Left 4 Dead campaigns, gotten thoroughly owned at Nazi Zombies (round 5), and played over 150 games of Combat Arms.

Tomorrow I finally get back into my programming, and actually get more work done for Japanese. I just hope the power doesn't go out, we're expecting a thunderstorm...
