I spend my days doing a range of things really. Sometimes it’s hours of Mass Effect or Starcraft. Other times I’m just sleep. Sometimes I just want to watch Glee from the couch.
I’ve built both a blueprinted Datsun racing engine and a desktop computer. It keeps telling me that I may be the victim of counterfeiting even though I remind it that I’m the perpetrator, and it’s the victim. I decided I would put some old USB HDD’s to use and made a RAID5 on a Pentium4 running Ubuntu Server. There have been days that I read post after post on Android forums about rooting my HTC Incredible.
While I believe fully in the philosophy of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” I certainly have trouble actually sticking to it. I have an especially hard time convincing myself to leave my .conkyrc alone.
At work I alternate between lining up text boxes on PowerPoint and spending the day in SQL Hell. I managed to get a decent job despite a BA Spanish. I did make it into the Alpha Mu Gamma honor society. I'm not sure how that happened, but I'm going to say that I actually had anything to do with it.
I prefer Star Wars to Star Trek and the Stones to the Beetles. I have a hard time deciding who is my super hero alter-ego - Tony Stark or Norrin Radd. I totally oppose Hero Registration and plan to marry Carol Danvers. I still have a collection of Hotwheels and play with Legos.
There was a point in my life where I spent a few days in Iraq, by a few I mean 738 to be exact. Those weren't the best days of my life, but certainly weren't the worst either. I feel like I've paid my dues. There are some things you learn, some adaptations you make, and a sort of person you become over there. For what it's worth, I learned those things, adapted, and became that person. When I came back my wife was still there and I had the best little girl possible, thanks to her efforts. She's really helped me discover what's important in life. I'm glad it's them.
