The past few days have been nothing but drama-riffic. Drama on theOtaku with the recent bans, arguments at home between my parents. My sister was hogging the phone because she's too busy arguing with her boyfriend that she's broke up with so many times it's a world record by now.
I don't like drama (who does?), but it's getting pretty ridiculous. The universal theme I picked up between all these arguments is that people dont' ever stop to see both sides of the story. Nor can people just let things be left alone when arguments clearly aren't needed. I just try to avoid it all, but somehow I get swept up in it.
In other news, I'm really on the fence about this degree thing. I found out that the schools over here don't offer my degree I've been working on for the past 5 semesters. I looked at the alternatives and none of them really interest me. But I'm at a crucial part of this because when I turn 21, I lose all my dependent status with the Army and I lose all the big things (medical, dental insurance). I'm not even allowed to go on base. Part of me is really resisting this, because I don't want to have to start all over on a degree that I have literally no interest on. So many people have told me "well a degree is a degree".
Right, because getting a degree in Criminal Justice makes you qualified to work on Aerospace Engineering. :|
I'm thinking about moving back to the US and getting my EMT certification, so I can have a steady job while I try to finish up my original degree. Long hours, but I'm sure that helping people and working on my degree at the same time is a win-win situation.
I just looked at my post count for OB....
God damn it.
For those who are unaware, Otakuboards has launched version 8.0. First I have to say congrats to the hard working people who made that possible. OB has needed a change for a bit and I'm loving the new look. Can't wait to see what new features the site will get in the next upcoming months.
BUT! I'm thoroughly confused by the new display names people have been using. I've seen posts from people and I'm like: "WHO ARE YOU AND WHERE IS *insert member name here*?! D<" Hopefully people won't decide to be twenty different user names over the course of the site, so I can figure out who people are.
Unfortunately for the moderation crowd, your title gives you away. ;)
I love 90s music, but there are some songs by 80s bands that I love. This one by The Cutting Crew is one of my personal favorites. And it's also the basis for my post.
Last night after eating dinner, I was nodding off at 7 P.M. I have a pretty regular sleep schedule. I go to bed around 10 or so, and I'm usually asleep by 10:45 at the latest. But last night I was asleep by 8:30 O_o. I slept in today too. I guess my body just needed the extra rest.
For those of you who are my friends on Facebook, I have some pictures posted up of my family's visit to Trier, Germany. It was a nice day trip and it there were several thigns that we got to see. Trier is the old western capital of the Roman Empire and as such, has a lot of remains from that age. In their history museum they had statues of the Roman gods and other relics. I particularly enjoyed the Ampitheatre that they had where they used to have Gladiator battles.
If I did Otaku Jeopardy again, would anyone play?
