The semester is FINISHED and now it is time for blogging and reading and writing and coding-for-fun and Netflix and video games and sunshine and swimming and taking dogs to the park and grilling and no mayo please and tanning and burning and peeling and flaking and FUN.
I wanted to take a moment to give a shoutout to some of the reasons I got through those last 3 weeks of this semester:
1. A big thank you to CURE-EGG. You make waking up in the mornings possible.
2. I’d like to thank this fellow here for keeping me on track as my wallpaper when the lure of “fun internet” became so strong.
3. To all the “OH-GOD-PLEASE-HELP-ME-CRAM-FOR-THIS-FINAL-EXAM-I-SWEAR-I’LL-NEVER-SIN-AGAIN-IN-MY-LIFE-IF-YOU-HELP-ME-PASS-AMEN” playlist curators at 8tracks.com, thank you so much!
4. I wanted to thank my dog, Raven, for putting up with hours of her owner sitting on the floor, nose touching the computer screen, fingers hammering out code. You are a good dog, we’ll go to the park all summer and I’ll let you roll in the mud.
5. And finally, I’d like to thank all my friends and family for still liking me, even after not seeing me for 2 months because I’ve been cooped up in my lair working on projects and tests. You guys are the best.
LET THE SUMMER BEGIN.
So I know I usually do this on Wednesdays BUT THIS VIDEO IS TOO EXCITING! I’ve watched it about 4-5 times now, and I’ve decided that it’s on my list of top 10 videos that made an impact on me (right up there with the Charlie Chaplin video….goosebumps forever.)
Please please PLEASE watch this full screen!
I’m not saying we ever were “the greatest”, but this is the most honest thing I’ve heard on television in a very long time.
TL;DR: WORTH THE WATCH
So I wanted to blog today due to the fact that illness chains me to my apartment. I will spare you the details, but your hint is to just imagine what would happen to you if YOU undercooked your Chinese food for dinner last night…………..
ANYWAY, I would like to bring your attention to some of the MOST BEAUTIFUL websites on the internet! (You can view more in this reddit thread that was on the front page this morning.)
Evangel Cathedral *(DO NOT CLICK THIS LINK IF YOU HAVE A HISTORY OF EPILEPSY OR YOU ARE SENSITIVE TO FLASHING LIGHTS)*
The WORST site on the internet
ACTUALLY awesome, useless sites for your enjoyment:
Love music? Love squares?
Garfield minus Garfield
Why no one in Russia is angry about getting a 404 error…
Clean your computer screen here!
This one is for Katherine and anyone else allergic to cats.
Have you ever wondered how long you could stay on a raft with a chicken?
How many 5 year olds could you take in a fight?
A tumblr dedicated to looking at Kim Jong-Un looking at things. (The more pages you go through, the funnier it gets.)
Blast from your past!
Emails from an asshole
Stumped on what to make for dinner? THIS WILL HELP
Better than the weather channel
Wishes for your health from the Porcelain Palace,
Mondays can be hard. I’ve been up and coding since about 8:30 a.m. (finishing all my work from the last 3 weeks) and right about now, I want to keel over and die. If you’re feeling similar Monday blues, here’s what I recommend: watch ZeFrank’s video (above), drink another cup of coffee, turn on the Skyrim playlist on Pandora, and keep on trudging through your work.
YOU CAN DO IT!
You are DEFINITELY going to want to see this.
So I know I’m posting a lot today, but I’m ALL ALONE this weekend because my roommates went to Nashville and I’m HIGHLY caffeinated and…….let’s face it, I have no friends. And a ton of homework. That I’m going to put off until Sunday. I have like 4 websites to work on for 4 clients. Ugh. ANYWAY, I wanted to share a beautiful, educational, and very profane video of one of my YouTube heroes, Jenna Marbles, in which she renames common animals. And she does it so WELL. And FUCK YOU I CAN START A SENTENCE WITH ‘AND’ IF I WANT TO, THIS IS AMERICA YOU SHOULD BE PROUD I EVEN KNOW HOW TO SPELL AT ALL I’M FROM TENNESSEE FOR CHRISSAKES.
Sorry, like I said….HIGHLY CAFFEINATED.
(DISCLAIMER: Do not watch this video….or read my blog, for that matter……if you have problems with profanity. Or unnecessary Capitalization. Or EXCESSIVE USE OF CAPSLOCK.)
