Gloqwi - 5.14.10 - It's The Be~st Day Ev~er!

I can't really explain to you how awesome today was...

without explaining to you how much the beginning of the week really sucked.

I had a theatre project that I was apparently supposed to be working on over the weekend, but of course, I didn't. You know why? Because I enjoy life, and time away from school is time that needs to be nourished like a baby. So HELL NO was I going to work on it over the weekend.

So then I ended up having to work on it during the week. When I went to school on Monday, apparently everyone thought I was supposed to have it done by today. I was like "WTF, mate?" And so I lied and said that the editing was almost halfway done (it barely began. Okay, fine, I'm going to stop lying to myself. I didn't bother doing shiz). And then I decided to commit the rest of my entire nights and mornings working on the project. I'm not going to go too much into detail, but I'm going to tell you right now,


I thought this was probably going to be one of the worst weeks of school in my life (as I got piles and piles of World Studies homework to do while simultaneously having to read "Things Fall Apart" for Survey Lit. (which I have only skimmed and read a few of the final chapters. It might've been good if I didn't have SO MANY OTHER THINGS TO DO.), but then,

Yesterday happened.

Something that I conveniently left out of my story was that I recorded the tenth episode of the podcast I'm in called the Library of Games Podcast (you can find the newest episodes right here on this website by clicking on the link or visiting the official Library of Games website here!). During one of the breaks that we took during the show, the librarian/mentor supervising the podcast Taylor (I mention her in a couple of posts) asked for volunteers to ask questions at a Cory Doctorow panel happening at the library this Thursday (author of books such as Makers, Little Brother, and his newest book which was the whole reason for the panel, For The Win). Seeing this as a great opportunity, I raise my hand, and I end up getting to sit next to the man himself and ask him any question I want to ask him in front of many jealous fans (even Leo has read more Cory Doctorow then I have, he wishes he was me). Sadly, I ended up having to leave early and I wasn't able to take a picture with the man like Aaron, Patrick, and Taylor were able to. It was really great thought!

And then today happens.

School was S.S.D.D., then I end up going to the library. The library decided to do a favor for everyone that was on that panel by getting them (that means ALSO ME) a SIGNED HARDCOVER COPY of FOR THE WIN (as seen in picture). So now my day happens to become amazing. After I get picked up by my mother, she is driving me with a friend who decides to celebrate my birthday a couple of days late by giving me $20. My mom also ends up asking me if I'm interested in the "Battlefield 2 game". "Of course I am!" says I, and then I find out that Fry's Electronics is doing a "basically 50% off" sale on the game ($35!) and I decide to take advantage of the $20 I just got.

And then my mother pulls up a list of $7 Blu-ray ads and asks me if any of them are interesting to me. I see Serenity, and I know that that movie is based of the show Firefly, which is where Nathan Fillion is from, who stars in Castle, which is a show that I LOVE. (He was also featured in Halo 3: ODST, his voice and his face model) So I decided to get that. After the purchase, I had this huge feeling of excitement. A feeling that said "I'm going to enjoy the next couple of weeks". I also came from a Math II meeting for school that made me feel smart. :P
