What's new

I have a new roommate. She seems nice. My old roommate switched places with her because each of them had friends in the other's building that they visited all the time and it was about a 20 minute walk to go there.  I will probably be getting a more accessible room sometime soon. I have a meeting set up.

The word of the day is penumbra. The definition of it that I like best is a shadowy or indefinite region. The word just sounds really cool in my opinion.

I would like to talk about my nerdy anti-social behaviors.  I am pretty much on my computer all day long, except when I'm in class or reading a book.  I have lots of things that I like to do on the computer. For one, I like to write a new blog post every day and read everyone else's new posts.  I like to watch movies illegally.  I like to download photoshop brushes and find fun photoshop tutorials. Yes, I am a design nerd.  I also like to find cool pictures, because I really hate having the same desktop wallpaper for more than a week. I usually change it about every 4 days.  I have recently discovered the match color tool in photoshop and have become quite enamored with making my photos look more surreal or stormy or vibrant. I also learned how to create vectors by tracing photos. This is still a slow process for me, so I haven't actually finished a vector yet. I am currently working on making a Converse shoes vector for a shirt I'm designing.  There's another nerdy hobby. I love I never buy anything but I like to design and critique and get critiqued and score submissions and try to enter contests but never finish on time. Okay, confession time, I like to play computer games.  I like pretty much any type of computer games but my favorites are point and click. These are often escape the room games but sometimes there are other storylines. I'm not sure what I love so much about these games, but I could play them all day. I used to play Runescape. I forgot my password and never made a new account. I like to play pretty much any kind of computer game, so if you have one that you really like, feel free to share it with me.

In case you are not yet convinced of my nerdery, I will inform you that I can solve a Rubik's cube in under 3 minutes. I also have a Rubik's pyramid that takes a little longer to solve. I know how to say hello and/or goodbye in English, German, French, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, and Spanish. I am teaching myself Latin. I know basic HTML.  I read novels for fun. I also do Sudoku and Kakuro and crosswords for fun, though not as often anymore. I enjoy doodling Mario and Pacman and Zelda. I also enjoy playing all of those. I really enjoy RPG games such as Golden Sun and Final Fantasy. I also like Halo, even though I'm really bad at it. I can play the Legend of Zelda main theme on my flute. I can the main Mario Bros. song on my flute, guitar, and keyboard. I used to collect Yugioh cards but my brother traded them all to a friend for some video game and I was really mad.

In conclusion, I am a nerd and proud of it, for the most part.
