That’s right folks. Look at that cam picture over there. Print it. Admire it. Question how such a miracle could occur. I know I sure as hell have since this afternoon. That, my friends, is my Senior Thesis. Here, let me recreate the scene from earlier this afternoon as my professor handed back the papers.
Goob: Look, Professor Gregg, I just want to apologize for the poor quality of my paper, especially near the end. I simply ran out of time editing it! You yourself saw me run into class 30 minutes late since I was trying to edit as much as humanly possible and I just want…
The Best Grader Ever: Uh, Mr. Shyzer, what are you talking about? You received the highest grade in the class.
Goob: If you’d be willing to just let me…wait, what?
Goob grabs the paper and takes a look at it.
Goob: I…I…I MADE AN A!?!?! AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! YEEEEEEEES!!!! DAMN, I LOVE THIS SHIT AND I MAY MOVE TO ENGLAND, AHHHHHHHHHHHH!
I think I may have dry humped the pencil sharpener on my way out, but honestly my memory is a little hazy around that time period. I remember sprinting back to my apartment, literally high-fiving random strangers as I went. The janitor wearing a Christmas Santa Hat on her head yelled something to me as I hugged her, but I didn’t quite catch it.
An A. Holy Damn… I have no idea how I pulled this off. None. I’m about to go punch holes into the corners and hang it around my neck for the rest of this week. And you think I’m kidding. Man, sometimes, it’s nice being smart. I’ll be honest, I try to be a modest person. I’ve yet to bring up the A with anybody on my own. But the minute somebody’s asked me how it turned out, I’ve let go.
I guess I’m just proud of myself.
Anyways, I want to alert everybody to a new site that just opened up last night. In case you haven’t heard, my good buddy Neal has opened up a site over at Nealsmack. He brought it back from the dead last night and the forums are already bustling with activity. He apparently had the site a few years ago, but it died due to complications even the doctors couldn’t foresee. But now it’s back and so, you need to go check it out. Now.
And hey, while you’re at it, GO AND VOTE in the final round of the Best of Shyzer. Voting will probably be closed after this week, and therefore, you only have a few days left. Seriously, it takes a maximum of 60 seconds to vote. So none of you have excuses not to. Especially those of you I know in real life and who will be bitched out by me personally if you fail to vote =) And just in case anybody need a memory refresher on what the heck I’m talking about, you can read all about it in this previous post of mine.
And yet onto another random topic. Everybody do me a second favor. See the Tagboard? Look beneath it. See the Radio Blog? Good. Click on a song and tell me if it plays. I’ve got it playing on my computer, but I want to make sure it works on everybody else’s. And yes, this is kind of important, because it’s going to come into play here very soon on Shyzer. I’ve currently uploaded seven songs that I’ve been playing over and over for the past few days. My two favorites easily are Perfect To Stay and Since U Been Gone. I’m not really a Kelly Clarkson fan other than the fact that she’s hot, but for some reason, I love her voice when she screams. And she does quite a bit of screaming in her new song, meaning therefore I love her new song. The chorus is pretty damn good too. As far as the Collective Soul songs go, well, everybody knows they are one of my all-time favorite bands. They released a brand new CD a week or so ago and those are the best songs off it. I think Perfect To Stay is the best of them all, but my brother thinks Satellite is. Anybody care to set us straight and help us decide? =)
And while we’re on the topic of Shyzer, how about a mini-update? The achieve is a mess right now due to some of the new MovableType code that I don’t understand. One day it looks completely wrong, then the next it magically fixes itself, only to reverse the following day. I hope to fix that sometime this week. The gallery is down as well and I have no idea why. I actually have a ton of new pictures I took over Thanksgiving to upload, so that has suddenly jumped to the top of my List of Things to Fix. Shlyrics (a new subpage) is coming along nicely, as is a bunch of the half-completed posts I talked about earlier. Hell, don’t look now, but ever since November rolled around, I’ve been making a good 5 posts a week or so. This is a trend I plan to maintain.
But for this week, I’m floating on cloud nine. That A on my thesis was an unbelievable way to start the week. The Packers won tonight, tomorrow is Pizza Night, Wednesday is all new Lost and West Wing, Thursday my apartment will host the second Swagger Party of the semester, and Friday…well, I can’t think too far ahead. Honestly, life couldn’t be treating me any better right now. And that’s without even considering the fact that I only have a week and a half left of school before I get two months of vacation and a trip to Australia.
As Fellner says, “It’s Good to be Goob.”
