It's been a while since my last blog...another week of my life gone by. A lot can happen in a week. Worked 8AM-4PM on Monday-Wednesday and had class 5:30-8. Luckily I only have work on Thursday/Friday so I get some peace at least. I've been thinking a lot lately about traveling when I graduate grad school in May and where I want to go. I've thought a lot about Australia, my grandmother absolutely loved it when she spent two years teaching there...definitely on my list. Also I've thought about somewhere in the Caribbean like The Virgin Islands, or maybe Hawaii over in the Pacific. Lots of options, but I'm just ecstatic that I'll finally have the money to go somewhere new and exciting. :) My car randomly decided to shred a serpentine belt Thursday evening...Luckily I limped it home that night and had my co-worker give me a ride to and from work today, then my Dad drove over to help me put the new one on and also fix the tail lights in my car. So all in all, an extremely busy and hectic week, but life is still good. (Pic for shits and giggles)

As promised, here are the long awaited new head and tail light pics from my 2000 Ford Focus. Turned out the jet blue bulbs that the company sold me are for the OEM headlights though and don't match up to these new projectors so I've got to return them and get a set to match these. :/ Haven't gotten any pics of these at night yet. Will try to take some of those when I get the chance. (Click to enlarge)

Has anyone here actually made these before? This picture looks FUCKING delicious! (There's my fat kid mentality standing out like a sore thumb...) I will have to get the ingredients to make these at some point soon.

On a separate note, my new headlights and taillights for my Focus arrive tomorrow. Can't wait to unbox them and have a look at them first hand. Hopefully will have them installed sometime on Saturday or Sunday. Pics will be posted on here, for sure.

That's about all I got for tonight...too tired to bother with anything else. Peace.

I been thinking lately about my childhood and all the things that I miss the most about it. Other than having virtually no responsibility at all, the thing I miss most are the amazing TV shows I remember watching as a child. The Old Nickelodeon shows were the SHIT back in the day. Rocko's Modern Life, Doug, Legends of the Hidden Temple, Prometheus and Bob, Guts, Double Dare, Rugrats, and soooo many more. But surprisingly, the show I find myself missing the most is the Power Rangers. And no...I'm not talking any of the 15+ seasons of knock-off power rangers, I'm talking the original mutha fuckin Mighty Morphin Power Rangers! Used to have like every single one of these toys as a kid, then remember selling them (wish I hadn't now) at a yard sale when I was like 14. Am I the only one though that thinks the once the Green Ranger stepped in, he essentially replaced the Red Ranger as the dominant character? I mean yeah he was the most badass of them all, the Dragonzord was the shit, but it felt like Jason got screwed out of being the original "leader" and all when Tommy showed up. For a group of teens they sure managed to avoid all the drama that teenagers today seem to get tangled up in. :-P Anyways, that's my two cents for the day. Peace.

It's been a good weekend...but who do all weekends have to fly by? I mean damn...I could use a full week off at this point already and we're only a small ways into the school year. I've been procrastinating homework all weekend and as of now, I still haven't done it for tomorrow. :-P (Meh - It's only studying for a quiz anyways). Moving on...I haven't drank any notable amount of alcohol in at least 7-8 months now. Kinda crazy if you go back to a time when I first started drinking back in my Freshman year of college. Reason why I stopped? Well I'd have to attribute that to a certain "herb" of sorts that I also tried in my freshman year of college....which leads me to my next point.

Downsides to getting drunk - (1) Excessive cost when you want to get "shitty". (2) Hangovers - Enough said (3) Inability to remember certain parts of the night before (4) Inability to drive and/or pass a DUI test (5) The need for designated drivers, and the list goes on.
Downsides to "the herb" - (1) It's illegal because the government says so....and...well....erm....that's the only one I can think of. It's cheaper than alcohol in the long run, no hangover like alcohol, rarely (if ever) will you have memory loss from it, almost every person I know hasn't had it affect their ability to drive and I know several friends that have even passed a field sobriety test while totally stoned. And thus, you have no need for a designated driver. I could go into a HUGE rant about the reasons it should be legal, but there are plenty of well constructed, logical arguments out there already. The government just isn't in a position to accept the logical aspects of legalization yet...though I hope to see it come in my lifetime. Till then, I'll just keep enjoying myself. ;)
