The details of my life are quite inconsequential. My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize, he would drink, he would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Some times he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy, the sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical, summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets. When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds, pretty standard really. At the age of 12 I received my first scribe. At the age of fourteen, a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum, it's breathtaking, I suggest you try it.

I went to private schools all my life, and never had the motivation to excel. I'd say it was mostly due to me being smart enough to just skate by and do the bare minimum to get decent grades. I wanted to go to Michigan, but apparently not bad enough to work hard for it, since I got waitlisted and rejected. At the time I was disheartened because although I didn't have the grades to go, I knew peers that had worse grades than I did and got in easy (there's probably a few buildings around AA that have their families name's on them.) I also wasn't too fond of my highschool and most of my fellow classmates, which definitely didn't help motivate me to try hard.
Fast forward to mid-way through my undergrad and I was hating my business major and got really terrible grades one semester. The unhappiness coupled with me drinking quite a bit and not doing any studying was pretty horrible. I studied abroad that next semester, got awesome grades, and switched to political science after that. From then on, it wasn't so much that I had to be motivated to try hard, but I had found a subject which I genuinely cared about and enjoyed. I didn't see the work as studying- rather I wanted to learn as much as possible about politics and had some great professors along the way that I was able to get to know who pushed me. I graduate this Friday, and I am currently looking around the country for jobs with advocacy groups or basically anything remotely politcally related.
The moral of the story for me is- don't sweat highschool and don't sweat not getting into your dream college. I count myself very fortunate to have had the ability to go to college period, and even luckier that I was able to find a major and a field that I am passionate about. Now, whether or not that passion will transform into a succesful career remains to be seen, but I wouldn't go back and change anything from my life. To me, its more important to find something that makes you happy and gets you excited rather than just a major or career that you slog through day in and day out just to make money. I really look forward to any interviews I may get, because for the first time in my life I'll be able to be completely genuine about why I want such and such a job, instead of pretending to be interested to get simply get hired and survive. I find that a lot of my friends that have already graduated with degrees they weren't all too excited about are now in jobs they hate- even if they are making decent money. That would be the biggest piece of advice I would offer anyone in highschool or just starting college. Do not pick a major or work toward something simply because you think it will pay well. There is so much more to life than money. Take many different classes in many different subjects, and try to find something that you are actually passionate about.

I haven't ever had bad service at Shaw's, but I find it to be a little overrated for the price. With so many good seafood restaurants in Chicago I usually go elsewhere

I tried it yesterday for the first time this year and was really underwhelmed as well. I kept thinking to myself "did it always taste like this??" Very mediocre.

Beside the obvious tourist attractions, I'd reccomend visiting the London Fire Monument- My English friend took me there when I visited and I have to say it was by far my favorite. You get some awesome views of the city! You could also check out the O2 and the nearby cable car lift that gives you some good views of London as well. Most importantly enjoy- London is my favorite European city!

Unless you have read actual chapter summaries, I guarantee you do not know "everyone who is going to die/win." I was under the same impression before I actually read the novels, and I was dead wrong as to how much I thought I knew. You're dealing with thousands of pages- while the jist of the overall plot line may be spoiled for you, there is so much more that isn't talked about online that occurs in the story. Everyone always rags on AFFC, but I really enjoyed the iron born storyline, as well as other aspects of it, and ADWD, while boring at some points, was really really good as well. I'd say you are doing yourself a disservice by not finishing reading the books.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||From what I understand the||
From what I understand the show will moreso be diverging from the books than anything else. Perhaps some elements of TWOW will make an appearance but I am not thinking anything earth shattering will be shown. Tonight was mostly ADWD with some AFFC- and the new Varys/Tyrion storyline. I am kinda dreading the creative liscense D&D may employ with this season, as I have been really looking forward to seeing the major ADWD storylines play out. Overall tonight's episode was fine, except for when I thought Grey Worm was recast and killed by the Sons of the Harpy.. I was also dissapointed they made Maggy the Frog hot. It will be interesting to see which way they take Mance's storyline- or not, since there was not much surrounding his death on tonight's episode... and it would probably confuse show watchers as to what is actually suppose to happen.

Well, when said man was a xenophobic liar at best and a murderer at worst- I think it's fair to question the blind patriotic love he gets. It's a dangerous path and a slippery slope one goes down when they make it so we are unable to question 'heroes' simply because they killed a bunch of our 'enemies.' Also, please tell me what the Iraqi people had to do with 9/11- Iraq had nothing do to with 9/11, so who was Chris Kyle in fact protecting us from? Was he protecting us from people who were fighting against a country which invaded them competely illegally? It amazes me that some of us are so blinded by patriotism that we cannot intelligently discuss both sides of an issue without getting offended that someone is being anti-American when they bring up the completely valid facts that Chris Kyle was not all that great of a person.
As for the movie- I think it is incredibly stupid to censor it. I'm all for them showing whatever the hell movie they want- it could have been a good thing that prompted a lot of intelligent discussion and debate. The problem lies on the extremes of both sides of the issue- I agree with coach Harbaugh that if the showing of the movie offends people, too bad. I would however also argue that it is more offensive and less American to prevent people from thinking for themselves and asking questions in the name of love for country and reverence for 'heroes.'

Too tough of a decision to have to choose simply one car... I'd need different cars for different catagories. Daily Driver- give me a 2015 Audi RS6 Avant (assuming you can sneak one into America.) Classic Muscle- I've always been partial to the 68' Charger RT, Orange body with black hood please. Finally as a supercar/weekend fun car- 2015 Lamborghini Huracan Roadster... or if I wanted to save a boatload of money, 2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible.
