So yeah, I haven't been posting much on this site again. Well, let me tell you... on so many levels of interest, so many wasted hours of procrastinating, and so much free time on my hands this week, a lot has happened this May. Heck, where do I start?
First off, the track season has just ended for me. So that means more time to spend on afterschool and surfing the web. The last meet I went to was also a nice piece of memorabilia for me. (What does that word mean anyway? Something to do with memories?) The run I was assigned was the 1600 m and only the 1600 m. God, did I feel so proud after that run. When I was running, I noticed myself passing the other runners one by one. I was excited to the point where I thought that I may come in first in the mile. Well, I didn't come in first; in fact, I sort of lost a few places on the last lap. However, all that adrenaline was not put to waste. In the heat of the competition, I have broken my personal record with a time of about five and a half minutes, and this means more to me since this record time has dropped off 30 minutes of my original average time.
YES, IT REALLY HAPPENED.
Along with the season being over, my high school is now starting special testing sessions early in the next few days. When I am not taking the tests, I am supposed to arrive at the school more late than I usually do... VERY LATE. I get more than three hours taken off of my regular schedule, so I can do whatever I want in the morning before the bus for non-testing students arrives. I think it would be the perfect time to, I dunno, draw a few pics, make some race tracks, etc.
I'm also reading this amazing (for a start) book called "The Martian Chronicles" by one of my inspirational writers, Ray Bradbury. I'm such a sucker for science fiction. I've probably already said this in an earlier journal, but the cool thing about science fiction is not just how advanced the technology is, but also how unpredictable our power over this technology can get. Whether it's nuclear bombing the entire population, ruining future time with paradoxes, or delving into the mind of a psycho, science fiction questions the minds and capabilities of all human and animal life forms.
And speaking of sci-fi, I'm getting myself hooked onto the anime, "Memories." The one I'm addicted to, especially, is of course, "Magnetic Rose." Hence, the new webcam, the new pics in my favorites, I just love that section. I love it so much, that the rest of the movie doesn't matter to me as much. Isn't that sort of nuking the fridge there? Katsuhiro Otomo might have played his cards a little too early. But then again, you can't argue with detailed animation, well said stories, and a little black comedy once or twice.
So my mind is abuzz with all of this crap, in a good way. It's time to get cracking on all my work. There's only less than 15 days of school left for me! Yippee!
