A Personal Celebrity

Today I had a really interesting experience that I don’t think I have ever really had before. I was in Game Dev class today and we had a guest speakers. At first I was annoyed because I wanted to work on my game, but then Naylor mentioned that one of …

Thanksgiving in…well…a few paragraphs

Well, had a great Thanksgiving. We went back to Bandera to visit my mom and then have Thanksgiving with Corey’s Uncle and family. It was fun, great turkey. We then went to Padre Island to go on the Texas Treasure (a gambling boat) with her mom and step-dad. We had …

God’s Mysterious Ways

I can’t think of any phrase that might sum it up better than “God works in mysterious ways.” I left for school yesterday morning to find that I had just missed the bus, as usual. It always seems to drive right in front of my apartment’s driveway without fail. I …

Yep, it’s a 2 for 1 special!

Spanish, Mars Rovers, Game Dev, What?

Heffron!

Yesterday Corey and I had the wonderful opportunity of getting to see both Tammi Pescatelli and John Heffron, comics who were both on Last Comic Standing, at the Paramount Theatre in downtown Austin. I originally bought the tickets last Friday after being woken up Thursday to Mix 94.7 offering free …

4 more years.

Well, another election is over. Now I have 2 under my belt, but unlike last time, I feel a sense of what-if. I kinda wish it was like Star Trek sometimes, where we could just jump to some parallel dimension when things were slightly different – just to see how …
