Coffee, Messenger Bags, Linux, and the School Schedule…

The first-part of today was awesome. I slept in late, ate a nice lunch, and checked my Facebook. Then, Kelci texted me and asked me if I wanted to meet her and Spencer down at City Brew. My urge to get out of the house and do something still wasn’t fulfilled by last night’s pool-playing, frozen-dairy-eating, and park-loitering escapade, so I happily agreed to go. Spencer and I have been Facebook friends for a little while, but I hadn’t actually met him in person until today. I’ve been spreading my love of Linux (mainly Ubuntu) through wall posts and comments, so I decided to bring my laptop down to the coffee shop so I could actually show him the wonders of Ubuntu. Also, I had to bring my Blue Snowball podcasting microphone with me too because he is a fellow podcaster and I figured that a fellow podcaster could appreciate the awesomeness of a legitimate podcasting microphone. I lugged all of this down to the coffee shop in my new messenger bag. I like the messenger bag, but my laptop can’t fit in the specially-padded laptop pocket. It can still fit in the bag– just not in the “laptop-friendly” pocket.

After briefly showing off my nerdy tech stuff, we had a nice conversation outside on the patio about a lot of random things. It was fun. It was nice to see Kelci again and I enjoyed meeting Spencer. Mainly, it was just nice to get out of the house and have a good time with cool people. We planned to go to Inception later in the evening, but my parents had other ideas. I had forgotten to do a few chores the day before, and the giant axe of punishment finally landed. I’m grounded from going out for the rest of the week. It was a bit of a disappointment becauseĀ  I was excited to see Inception again, but I guess I’ll live. I still feel bummed that I had to bail on our plans.

Tomorrow looks remarkably disappointing. I’m stuck at the house all day and the lawn needs to be mowed. It’s like a cross between house-arrest and Hell.

That’s all for today, folks. Remember to leave your comments, suggestions, questions, rants and raves, etc. below. Your input is always appreciated…

P.S. Shortly after posting this, I realized that I forgot to include my class schedule. Sorry about that. Without further delay, here is my provisional class schedule for first semester:

1st: AP English
2nd: Human Anatomy
3rd: AP Statistics
4th: Environmental Science
5th: Genocide
6th: Kodiak (School Newspaper)

I’m excited for this year already. Having AP English first period will be interesting, but I think I can handle it. I might have to put the new coffeemaker to work though… At the very least, it’s better then having math first period. I can at least write while I’m only semi-conscious (this blog is proof of that– I write 99.9% of these posts around midnight).
