Spring Break Begins [10 Apr 2006|01:26am]
[ mood | tired ]

So we had Mini-term, seven school days and a weekend of "special programs." I helped build a disc golf course on campus, a pity, really, since they're tearing up the IM field, where we built about half of the course. A third of the tees and a basket aren't going to be available. Also, ultimate practiced on that field. This means a lot less playing time. We went to the state tournament on Saturday. On Friday night, I went to camp out at Wendell's house with Krishna, Noah, Jeremy, and Paul. We spent hours building a fire, and putting up a huge-ass tent with no instructions. We had vegetarian burritos and s'mores, and played cards and tried to watch Man on Fire. We slept on the ground in sleeping bags, except for Paul and Jeremy who slept with Jackets and Pants. The whole night, the dog, named after some Algae or something, was crawling all over us, putting balls on our heads, and other crap. In other words, a pretty crappy night. Saturday was six hours of Ultimate. First was against Woodside. That was a bad game... Second was against Cardinal Gibbons/Cary Academy, who we beat after a major comeback. Third was Jordan, who raped us even though they shouldn't have. Fourth was Durga, the B team for Chapel Hill High. It was wet, and we ended up pretty aching after it all. I went to pick-up Philip afterwards, and we went to NCSSM to pick up my crap. Then we went home, where we got ready for Prom. Prom was pretty good. I didn't know the Bur-Mil Park Lodge was so nice. The food was good, even though I didn't eat nearly enough of it, and I got chocolate on my tie, which I found out was 100% silk to my chagrin. I got a few dances, and my fast-thought moves got a little applause. Sat most of the time though, due to my aching legs, especially my right knee. Afterwards, Kate Ashby brought us to Guilford, and Jonathan brought us to Alden's for the after-party. I played some video games, but I couldn't hold out the night. I went home with Nick and Jeni at 3AM or something. I brushed my teeth, and promptly fell asleep. Woke up at noon, wasted time for a long time. Then I ate dinner, and got online. Found out that we got trounced in the tournament today. Lost to CHuf and CG/CA. Knew we'd lose to CHuf, but CG/CA we shoulda beat. Almost got beat by Durga in the consolation match. Man, didn't know I was so important to the team, heh. Not to be arrogant of course. Anyways, now I got an entire Spring Break in front of me... And I don't want to do anything, though there's so much to do. Fucking A.

I got into Duke, GA Tech, Wake Forest, UNC, and NC State, half my applied colleges. Just in case you didn't know.

As 2005 Closes [31 Dec 2005|11:02pm]
As the year draws to a close, I guess that I feel sort of sad. This is the last year of being a child. I'll be 18 next year, an adult. Damn. Graduation is next year. A car is next year. Who knows what else is next year, but this year hasn't been so bad. I've done a lot more than I thought I could, and a lot less than I should've. I guess what I treasure most is the times with my friends. 2005 to me has been a year of discovery, of change, of instability, of growing. I thank everyone who helped me get through the year. Goodbye 17th year.

Seniority [31 May 2005|05:07pm]
Damn, what a wasted Junior year. What the hell happened to me, I really screwed up a lot of shit. Found out I got a B+ in Calc 1, the easiest class I had. How the hell. The grand total is now 5 Bs in high school. Bye bye colleges.... I hate myself sometimes. Now I get to waste a summer doing community service and a lot of nothing. Fuck. On a lighter note, I got an iRiver mp3 player, 512 mb. Whoooo...

omg [21 May 2005|10:35pm]
[ mood | happy ]

Wow. That was one of the best nights I've ever at NCSSM. Well, what happened? Went to play basketball at 5:30, innocent enough. Played, went to dinner. Ate crap, as usual. Played some basketball then, with the AbuMoussa twins. A frisbee showed up with Karthik, and throwing ensued. Then, at 7:00, Koffeehaus began. I haven't been to Koffeehaus since the first one, it's insane. I'm that anti-social here. Well, I went after awhile, and just sat there, listening. There were some good performances, and some not so good one, like Andy AbuMoussa's rendition of Wonderwall.... That sucked, still love ya man. Anyways, I found Kyle and Wesley, and they went to play basketball after awhile. Met Benji and Matt Ball, incidentally, an incredible soccer/frisbee player. They showed me the Star Wars gangster rap, lol. Then I played some more ball. However, Matt Ball got a frisbee and people were throwing it. Well, I had to join of course. God, I miss throwing around frisbees. Anyways, other crazy stuff happened. The point is, I had a good time, and man, I wish I had more friends here. Too bad its the end of the year. Oh well, Senior year better rock! It's closing time...

End of APs [10 May 2005|11:09pm]
[ mood | complacent ]

Well, I took the AP Chemistry Exam. Totally bombed it. I'm gonna get a four, that'll be 4 4s, 3 5s, since I probably got a 4 in Euro too. God, I suck. On a lighter note, only 2.5 weeks of school left, and I wanna have a party this weekend! So if you're my friend, you're invited. It'll be fun for all! Just send an email to lieuv@ncssm.edu, call at 5585836, or im me at fryluver. Pick something, just come. Specific people include Tim McQuaig, Brian Clark, Kennedy Holt, Philip Gatlin, Vince Jacobucci, Steven Lim, Tristan Dewer, Raj Shah, etc. So yeah, people should come to Victor's party at NCSSM! Woot. Out.

[ mood | bitchy ]

I sprained my fucking ankle again. This time on both sides. What the fuck, my life sucks. At least I got a single... but I put down the wrong fucking room number, so I didn't get my first choice. Fuck life. APs start for me in 2 days.

Crunch Time Begins [17 Apr 2005|02:56am]
[ mood | tired ]

Two hours and 56 minutes ago, one of the more interesting weeks of my life ended. Interesting because a lot of stuff happened, stuff that I didn't know could happen. I guess I oughta start with Sunday. I got back to school at around 9:00, a full 4 hours later than I expected. This of course meant that I was going to have to seriously get my ass in gear to finish HW. I think I got most of it, but it's never good to cram. So I got to sleep later than I wanted to. Monday, this was a big one. Usual monday, until about lunchtime. That's when I checked my SAT score. I thought I had gotten around a 2100 and would have to retake it again. Boy, that was a surprise. My friend, Sam, and I went to check. Just when the page loaded, an Information Bar warning popped up. Closed that. BOOM. Math: 800. Verbal: 800. Writing: 720. 2320. Holy shit, that was incredible. Ran circles in the room, banged my head against the wall. It was a good few minutes. Then we had a monday meeting, where this guy, something Tyson, spoke to us. He was funny, said a lot of random crap. But then he charged us with Saving the World. He said that freedom of privacy was gone, and the constitution had been replaced by the Patriot Act. Well damn. That made me think for a while. Tuesday, found out that I had to make a presentation for a Student Ambassador interview. Used free blocks, afterschool, made a nice Powerpoint. Well, the actual interview didn't go as well as I hoped, but it wasn't bad. Wednesday, normal tired day. Had to start to write my speech. Didn't start till 11PMish. Didn't turn out bad either though. Thursday, elections for SGA, running for Treasurer. My speech was the best hands down. It made people laugh, it had progressive ideas, it was just the best. She was more popular. Turns out that no one had a majority, so there had to be a runoff. I lost. That really sucked. So Friday came, and I just had to survive it. Forgot I had a lab due, had to use my morning time before breakfast and 10 minutes that I got from finishing a midterm early. Strangely, I got the prelab right, and everything turned out well. Friday night and Saturday, just lazed. Now I'm here, writing. Throughout the week I did a ton of work as well. Time to get organized and start studying for APs. I can no longer be lazy. Time to move on with life.
Just for kicks though: Read my SpeechCollapse )

Well... [20 Mar 2005|01:55am]
...Prom ended 10 minutes ago. Not that I went, but you know, it ended 10 min ago. I spent the time baking cookies, doing chemistry, playing pingpong, playing wayyyyy too much WoW, and watching Wake Forest lose to W VA. What the hell. Wasn't a great night, but wasn't bad. Got back into the ping pong groove actually. It's a good feeling. My knee is getting back to what it used to be, but it's not quite there yet. One week more before spring break, hoorah. I get a break. This is a hell of a trimester, but I think the workload'll help me with time management and the like. I think I got nominated to run for SGA Treasurer. There's a primary first though, to cut it down to 2 candidates. Dunno if I'll even make that, but here's hoping. I'm too antisocial, ever since 2nd trimester started I think. I stay on hall and in my room too much. Gotta change that, gotta get out more. Friends are good. I miss the friends back home. That party falling through last week really sucked. Last night I went to a live concert in the Lecture Hall on campus. Mantra Missile, a Concord, NC band, friends of one of the students here. They did some interesting stuff. Lots of other people's music, even I Want it That Way by the BSB, and Colors of the Quinn, a remix of the Pocohontas song. It was an interesting experience. I ended up buying their debut album for 5 bucks. Who knows, maybe they'll hit it big, and this 5 dollar cd will be a collectors item one day. mantramissile.tripod.com, check it out. Acoustic guitars, harmonicas, drums of all types, all good stuff. It's too late, what the heck. I fell asleep last night without showering, brushing my teeth, or anything, and I didn't turn off any lights. Woke up at around 8:00 maybe, and went back to sleep for another hour. I've had cuts and stuff on my tongue and on the inside of my mouth for days, and it hurts to eat, brush my teeth, and drink citrus-y stuff. I wish I could just go and play Ultimate or basketball. I hate wearing glasses. I wish I'd gone to Prom and had fun, and I wish that I'd gone to prom with a girl. There are some people who want stuff to happen, there are some people who make stuff happen, and there are some people who wonder what the hell happened. I want to make stuff happen. But first, I have to get off my ass and be someone.

Bored [12 Mar 2005|09:22pm]
[ mood | dejected ]

Well... literally everyone fell through because of one thing or another. So I'm sitting here, with nothing to do. Sucks. This day has been mediocre. The only reason it hasn't sucked is because of the concert. So I get up today at 6:45ish, and after a few minutes, rouse myself. I go take the new SAT at Smith High. Well, I think I do pretty well for the first few sections. Then I get mentally tired, and it gets harder and harder to finish. Honestly, I don't think I did that great. After the test, I went to Borders, and I got a Mocha Freeze. They really aren't as good as when they were made of real coffee and crushed ice. Anyways, i get home, and I tell my dad how I do. He wasn't happy. Ended up getting back to school at like 3:45, 15 minutes before the concert. Turns out I don't have a black shirt. Have to borrow one from Derek Paylor, its 3:55. I run, unpack, make it with about three minutes to spare. The concert wasn't bad. We played the Lord Nelson Mass by Haydn. Overall it was pretty good, until the last movement, where we pretty much sped up to Warp 10 within 10 bars. Oh well. After the concert, I come back, and I've been doing nothing for a long time. I'm also fucking starving. Haven't eaten anything since about 2:30, when I ate a few pieces of fried chicken. Life has been hella boring, and I feel that I'm no longer in control of myself, no longer the person I once was. Just wish I was as smart as I once was.

Saturday [10 Mar 2005|02:58pm]
[ mood | sad ]

So yeah... Saturday. Looks like a few key people won't be making it. Tristan has work, Philip is sick, and Vince has Mickey D's... Sucks. Oh well. Here's the deal. It's gonna be a nice sleepover type thing, Saturday to Sunday. Ya get here at either 3:00 to watch the orchestra concert, which I'll be participating in, or you get here around 6. From there... I dunno, whatever. Maybe we can drive around and do stuff, that'd be fun. Anyways, on Sunday you'll have to leave, but I guess you assumed that. So yeah, not too late to RSVP. Call if you want, 336-558-5836.

In other news, this is gonna be the second time in three days that I'm going to see an orthopedic doctor. My knee started swelling up with fluid last Friday, they call it an effusion. I got a nice inch long need stuck into my knee on Tuesday to get it drained, and it looks like the same will happen today. Damn. Hopefully there isn't any permanent damage. Wish me luck. Out.

Next Saturday [06 Mar 2005|01:30am]
[ mood | tired ]

Since everyone's on Spring Break but me, I think that a party is in order. So everyone who can get a ride is cordially invited to Victor's Room at NCSSM. (Excluding girls, unfortunately. If you really wanted to come, I'm sure I could find a girl to host though... right.) I figure that after I take the new SAT next week, it'll be pretty good for me. So yeah, if you wanna come, just comment or contact me I guess. I need some entertainment, and I would love to have NCSSM ultimate players against ECG. NCSSM would die. So I encourage you to come. Just do it.

Good Song, check it out [02 Mar 2005|09:43pm]
It's in my profile, but w/e.

Existentialism on Prom Night
Straylight Run

when the sun came up
we were sleeping in
sunk inside our blankets
sprawled across the bed
and we were dreaming

there are moments when i know it
and the world revolves around us
and we're keeping it
keeping it all going
this delicate balance
all knowing


(sing like you think no one's listening)
you would kill for this
just a little bit
just a little bit
you would kill for this

(sing like you think no one's listening)
you would kill for this
just a little bit
just a little bit
you would....

sing me something soft
sad and delicate
or loud and out of key
sing me anything
we're glad for what we've got
done with what we've lost
our whole lives laid out right in front of us


sing me something soft
sad and delicate
or loud and out of key
sing me anything

Why not... [05 Feb 2005|10:30am]
URGENT: You must make a comment of a memory you have of me.
It can be anything you want,
It can be good or bad,
Just so long as it happened.
Then post this to your journal.
See what people remember about you.

In half an hour, it will not only be officially Christmas Day, it'll also be a week until the year 2004 ends. Crazy eh?

You're the best -- you know it, as does everyone
else (except for US News and World Report every
few years). You might not be hip, you might not
be pretty, but you're smart as a whip and you
never need to do another impressive thing in
your life.

Holiday Cheer! and plans for the pre-new-year-week! [24 Dec 2004|12:08am]
[ mood | bored ]

Happy Holidays! And to those heathens who worship hell.... go visit or something. The holidays have always been a good time of rest and relaxation. I think I took that a little too far recently. Been lazing in my room since, well, pretty much last Friday night, with the exception of a few events that have already been written about by Tim, Philip, Lim, and Trae. Go check 'em out for the details. After Lim was dropped off yesterday, me and Tris went over to Friendly and proceeded to buy gift certificates and Mickey D's ice cream cones, a steal at under a buck! Anyways, since being back home I have... finished A Walk to Remember (the book), finished the first 3 books in the Hitchhikers Trilogy (of 5), gotten to stage 4 in NFS Underground 2, won one game in The Frozen Game and lost 4 on battle.net, cleaned up my desktop (only about 30 icons now!), and gotten Futures, the new Jimmy Eat World album (not at all like Bleed American, but still likable). Quite a bit of stuff I must say. Still on the agenda: read a week ahead for AP Mod Euro Hist, gotten up to date on Chem Lab Notebook, study for SAT (old and new), organize school papers, learn hiragana, fix the roof, get rid of leaves, lose 15 lbs or more, finish last 2 books in Hitchhikers Trilogy, practice violin, reformat computer, beat NFS Underground 2, get Clarity (JEWs best album, says the guy at BB's), etc., etc., and possibly most important of all: buy Half-Life 2. Exciting prospects all. Really need to get off my ass and do all that now. Anyways, we oughta do something big for New Years, like a party or something. Possibly a LAN party, I'm thinking. Maybe one like on New Year's Eve, leading into the new year, or on that day itself. I go back Jan 2nd, which doesnt leave much time open. So! Games to be played... I have a few I suppose. MOHAA, and Starcraft, and if we can find an install, BF 1942, the classics. I have the install for Counter Strike and Condition Zero, both quite fun. Warcraft III possibly, lots of people have that. Halo can be played, if someone owns it. Just have to get a crack and delete the CDKEY from the registry, cause those cause problems. And whatever else, I suppose. LANning is fun, we do it all the time at NCSSM. Granted, the fact that most people have laptops and wireless cards helps a bit... but I'm sure we can make it work. So if you're interested, get back to me, ro tell someone who'll tell me, and we'll find a location (*cough* Lim's house *cough*) and the material we need. So yeah, thats an interesting prospect, one that hopefully can be brought to fruition. (Damn, I play too many video games). Well, thats about all of my life for the last week, and the future week. Guess we'll see what time throws at us. Until the future though, (to be politically correct), Haperry Christmakwanzakah and a Happy Christian New Year!
