Sometimes when your outside and walk past a man (or woman) on the street singing "Porcelain". And you wonder to yourself how much money can you make singing on the street and what are the tax benefits. Imagine the amount of songs you could choose from, no copyright issues or anything like that and after you have saved up a bit you could learn a instrument, start a band and buy a tour bus.
Another semester has come to pass and a new one begins. I know I failed calculus because I am not perfect - I have my flaws. This semester we have Java, subjectB and subjectC. I also have to get a laptop which will be an apple ibook if all goes well. It is not about "thinking different", or something profound life style or virus protection. No, I just want something that glows in the dark.
Driving lessons are progressing smoothly and I am getting accustomed to manual gears but it seems to be far too much work on the feet. It is as if I am walking while driving - automatic transmission is the way to go. I look forward to paying insurance in the future, changing oil and running over stray animals on the side of the road.

  1. everyone needs a computer that glows in the dark.

    i learned to drive an automatic vehicle just the other day. i had never driven one before, it wasn't to hard, i just had to keep holding off the urges to do anything with my feet.

    java subject should be easy for you owen, it's just like a retarded version of PHP.

  3. Owen, why the hell would you be running over animals on the side of the road? Didn't your driving instructor tell you about driving ON the road? Anyhow, don't stress too much about the took me about 2 semesters to figure out how it works, so just get back on that horse and ride!

  4. if you learn to drive a standard transmission (manual) before you drive a lot with an automatic, you'll never want to go back to an automatic.

    i have two cars now. ones a automatic coupe, thats the winter bitch. the other is a manual convertible. i love the snow and love driving in it, but i'm sorry i bought an automatic. i can't wait to get back to the stick when the weather gets better!

    you won't like driving stick at first, but once you get good at it, you'll love it. trust me.
