    I used to have loads of games... I have recently gotten rid of some, well traded them in...

    I have COD MW2, Halo 3, Forza 3, GTA 4, that GTA cowboy game, Fable 2, and one or two others.

    I play a lot of PC games also, usually things that run on the Source Engine, since that way they are free (well once you buy half life they are free)

    :lol
    I only buy good games, but I have an obsession with bad movies, like Batman & Robin, and Battlefield Earth. It's just so funny watching bad movies - movies that try to be really good blockbusters or horror but end up being comedy. :lol

    How did that bomb feel? :biggrin :tongue

    I've got COD: WaW, Halo 3, Forza 3, GTA 4, Fable, Battlefield: Bad Company, Far Cry 2 and a few others. Seems like we have a few games in common. I'm looking at getting MW2 soon as well. :)

    OH MY GOSH! I about screamed when I read this, cause my sister and I would watch Batman Forever, the one with Batman & Robin, just to make fun of it ALL the time!! We watched it again recently. Oh man, that movie is terrible.

    Well, we didn’t buy any of those games. Someone gave us this huuuuge game emulator. Actually, he gave us three. He gave us one that has SNES games, Sega Genesis games, and games for the original Nintendo.

    That bomb hurt. Actually, right after I wrote that I was going to light a bomb, I closed a door on my finger! Ouch. *throws bomb* :lol

    What’s everyone doin’ for fathers’ day?

    Going to church to praise my Father ;)

    Not sure, actually. We don't really do those Hallmark holidays around here.

    Haha, can't blame you, really. Actually for both things haha. We typically just spend time with my dad and whatnot.

    Hopefully, things will go ok. I never know when my house is going to go completely bazerk. :gah

    oh... :gah

    WELL FINE THEN!!!! :grumpy
    ( :lol )

    That reminds me, my grandparents one time asked me something about the Japanese alphabet/characters and I was trying to explain it to them. I actually felt like I was doing an ok job, but then they looked at me as if I came from another planet! THEN my grandpa looks at my grandma and asks, "should we check her temperature?"

    My sister and I, because we tend to laugh at things insted of taking it seriously, have started saying, "Should we check their temperature?"

    Has anyone noticed my love for ranting yet? :approve

    Today was cool, I was reeling in about a 3 pound lady fish, then about a 8ft bull shark rocketed in from no-where and ate it, my line didn't stand a chanve against it and it broke after about 2 seconds :o . Then a pod of dolphins started to surround our boat because they figuered out that we were fishing. They were about a foot from the boat just sitting there, waiting for us to throw our fish back. We fed them well. Then we almost hit a sea turtle :sad .

    Wow...Biggest fish I ever caught was a...*Hangs head in shame*...9" Trout...


    Anyway, I've been reading, programming, fixing the fence whenever the goats escape, listening to music, jogging, tearing walls apart, working on a deck, demolishing things, moderating forums, doing school, taking care of animals, sketching, writing, reading my Bible...

    Wow, I sound really busy when I write it like that. That's just what I've been doing this week. If you're just counting today, then...Well, all of that stuff besides demolishing and sketching ;)

    I finished a book about Christian philosophy, politics, and beliefs earlier today. It was given to me four days ago for school, and I was told to read it in four weeks, but I liked reading it so much I finished it in five days :biggrin I wish I had that book on the computer, so I could copy-paste parts here and on other sites...

    I don't really get Spring break(I'm home schooled), but I've had that problem after the Summer and Christmas breaks.

    For a little while, I was having a problem where I'd keep falling asleep during school, almost every day. I remedied that by setting my alarm to wake me up one hour before school though, so I can walk a couple miles, eat, and shower before school, so then I'd be totally awake.

    **

    Anyway, besides the normal school/goats/house-work stuff, I've been walking a lot(Usually seven to nine miles a day), me and a couple siblings dug up the front yard so Mom could plant a garden, and I've been designing a website I hope to get finished and on the internet this month.

    I've been doing a lot of things.

    For one, I'm working on a costume for fall festival this year. Here's my progress so far (well, not my latest progress, but what I did this evening isn't a big enough change to take pictures of): http://colliequest.deviantart.com/art/cosplaying-WIP-332813102 (That's a wig I'm wearing, FYI. My actual hair color is brown.)
    Making a costume has never been my thing, so I'm kinda nervous about it. And I've been hanging out on another forum where there's a lot of "cosplayers", and they make costumes and know a lot more about it than I do...so it's got me like "Eep...I can't make anything that good..." :crazy (Although what I'm doing is more like puting together than making at this point, since I'm not actually sewing anything.)
    Still, I have gotten some advice from some of them and will be improving a few things.


    I haven't been getting as much school done as I like...it's not all my fault, but some of it is. So this has been making me frustrated with myself a lot lately. And then trying to do schoolwork when everyone else in the house is being noisy and refuses to stop being noisy (I'm homeschooled), just...ugh.
    Sometimes it seems like everything's out to keep me from getting my work done, even myself.

    Gosh I hate to see how I used to act in ninth-grade >.< it's so embarrassing to see my post four years ago! I was such a weird kid and a douche! Gosh how things have changed, it's hard to believe I joined this forum that long ago. I just graduated so I guess that's what I've been up too.

    After four years of college I plan on going in officer candidate schools and hopefully be a coast guard helicopter pilot. It would be a dream to move up to Alaska, I love cold weather. At least I was saying the same thing all those years ago :)
