|Well that sucked
I've never been so thoroughly and viciously beaten by a test before. My Statistical Physics midterm was tonight. It started at 7pm, I left in disgust at 9:30.
I don't know how you managed, Meg.

Does anyone in Guelph have a bio text I could borrow for the semester? There could be a free lunch involved...

So I just had an interview and it looks like I have a 95% chance of being employed as of monday. Sporting goods and Seasonal at Sears in Guelph, woot. I get to play with the sports stuff and barbeques... Booyah indeed.

|Random.. it's the only way to fly
I should have been a pornstar.. I wouldn't have to stumble around for my clothes in the morning then. Where the hell are my pants indeed.
Also note that there are no mood-tags that start with K. I guess we're not allowed to feel kinky.

So I watched Fellowship of the Ring... Perhaps you're not understanding the extent of how bored I am. Give me something to do.. for God's sake, give me something to do!
P.S. I also did the dishes. *sob*

Well, after a particularly irritating move involving a pain in the ass van rental, a phone that was disconnected, and a two hour wait for transportation, I've successfully moved into my new place. It is, in a word.. Badass.
I have a walk-out basement apartment with a porch, carpet, a huge bloody window in my room, and a relatively large common area (couch included). It was a pleasant surprise to be able to maneuver in the bathroom, which consists of a tub and the washer/dryer. We have no microwave though, which is irritating but we can work around it. My room is glorious... huge window, closet, carpet, wood paneling on one of the walls.. I really like it. Pictures are in the making.
The Rogers people finally got our phone/cable setup today. We're in need of a router though, so I'm going to pick one up tomorrow. New phone number is (519) 265-0566 for all you nice people.
Side note to Alex and Neil:
If you try to steal either Ty's or my keys, I'll gut you and use your remains to fertilize my lawn. I'm not fucking impressed with last years bullshit. Thank you.

A long time ago Christine sent me a survey she did. I was bored and decided to complete it myself. The date of this entry is meaningless as I wrote the survey a long time ago.
It's quite long, but I enjoyed doing it. I seem to have come across as elitist, but if you know me then you should know I'm not. Enjoy, and if not.. nobodies forcing you to read it, heh.( Read more...Collapse )

|It's 1:23am. Do you know where your children are?
Why, oh why, am I posting again.. Who knows? Who cares? It's late, I'm tired, and yet I don't feel the need to fall asleep just yet. Perhaps it's the lack of studying being done on my part that is allowing my brain to function beyond the 16 hour limit I enforced for the first month. Perhaps it's the crack they put in Mr.Noodle flavouring packets. Or perhaps it's those fucking blonde kids again! Actually.. it's quite quiet on the Southern front of the house.
I should really study more. I had a good grove going on for a few weeks, but I think Thanksgiving screwed me up. I did far too little work and had far to much fun with friends (notably Christine and Ty). Did I mention that she complicates me terribly? That's another story though, heh.
Rock climbing is my lord and saviour.. or at least my getaway from HQ for a day every week. Two things I need to do to climb the most difficult problems there... i) improve my grip strength... ii) buy my own god damned shoes so my feet don't slide around inside those shredded cloth covered boxes of disease they supply us with. Climbing sure beats the hell out of the gym though. So much more amusing, as well as a sense of accomplishment when all is said and done.
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas has taken over my leisure time. There's something about surreal movies that interests me deeply. Just look at Waking Life, for example. I'm beginning to wonder if Hunter's attourney (Dr. Gonzo) is merely a figment of his drug crazed imagination. Note that at the very beginning of the movie, during "Bat Country", Gonzo has a fresh cut on his kneck for some reason. But then you think of how Gonzo sent Hunter a telegram from LA... What a strange movie. So refreshing to find a peice of cinematography that challenges your perception. "What telegram, you worthless bastard! ... I'll cripple your ass for this.."
"Do me one last favour Lord. Just give me 5 more highspeed hours before you bring the hammer down. Just let me get rid of this god damned car and off this horrible desert... Oh, you evil bastard! This is your work. You better take care of me, Lord, and if you don't.. you're going to have me on your hands."
Sleep becons. Away with ye!

|The results are in and I Suck.
Didn't fail anything, thank god.
How is it that my highest mark was in chemistry?
Next year will be better.. I'm locking myself in my room with books and I wont come out until I've bent that university over.
(And yes, I'm going to partake in class next year)

|INTJ -The Mastermind|
You scored 0% I to E, 36% N to S, 100% F to T, and 10% J to P!
|You are more introverted than extroverted. You are more intuitive than observant, you are more thinking based than feeling based, and you prefer to have a plan rather than leaving things to chance. Your type is best described by the word "mastermind", which belongs to the larger group called rationals. Only 1% of the population shares your type. You are very strong willed and self-confident. You can hardly rest until you have things settled. You will only adopt ideas and rules if they make sense. You are a great brainstormer and often come up with creative solutions to difficult problems. You are open to new concepts, and often actively seek them out.|
As a romantic partner, you can be both fascinating yet demanding. You are not apt to express your emotions, leaving your partner wondering where they are with you. You strongly dislike repeating yourself or listening to the disorganized process of sorting through emotional conflicts. You see your own commitments as self-evident and don't see why you need to repeat something already expressed. You have the most difficulty in admitting your vulnerabilities. You feel the most appreciated when your partner admires the quality of your innovations and when they listen respectfully to your ideas and advice. You need plenty of quiet to explore your interests to the depth that gives you satisfaction.
Your group summary: rationals (NT)
Your type summary: INTJ
|My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:|
||You scored higher than 0% on I to E|
||You scored higher than 40% on N to S|
||You scored higher than 99% on F to T|
||You scored higher than 2% on J to P|
RATIONAL NTs, being ABSTRACT in communicating and UTILITARIAN in implementing goals, can become highly skilled in STRATEGIC ANALYSIS. Thus their most practiced and developed intelligent operations tend to be marshalling and planning (NTJ organizing), or inventing and configuring (NTP engineering). And they would if they could be wizards in one of these forms of rational operation. They are proud of themselves in the degree they are competent in action, respect themselves in the degree they are autonomous, and feel confident of themselves in the degree they are strong willed. Ever in search of knowledge, this is the "Knowledge Seeking Personality" -- trusting in reason and hungering for achievement. They are usually pragmatic about the present, skeptical about the future, solipsistic about the past, and their preferred time and place are the interval and the intersection. Educationally they go for the sciences, avocationally for technology, and vocationally for systems work. Rationals tend to be individualizing as parents, mindmates as spouses, and learning oriented as children. Rationals are very infrequent, comprising as few as 5% and no more than 7% of the population.
Of the four aspects of strategic analysis and definition, it is the contingency planning or entailment organizing role that reaches the highest development in Masterminds. Entailing or contingency planning is not an informative activity, rather it is a directive one in which the planner tells others what to do and in what order to do it. As the organizing capabilities the Masterminds increase so does their inclination to take charge of whatever is going on.
It is in their abilities that Masterminds differ from the other Rationals, while in most of their attitudes they are just like the others. However there is one attitude that sets them apart from other Rationals: they tend to be much more self-confident than the rest, having, for obscure reasons, developed a very strong will. They are rather rare, comprising no more than, say, one percent of the population. Being very judicious, decisions come naturally to them; indeed, they can hardly rest until they have things settled, decided, and set. They are the people who are able to formulate coherent and comprehensive contingency plans, hence contingency organizers or "entailers."
Masterminds will adopt ideas only if they are useful, which is to say if they work efficiently toward accomplishing the Mastermind's well-defined goals. Natural leaders, Masterminds are not at all eager to take command of projects or groups, preferring to stay in the background until others demonstrate their inability to lead. Once in charge, however, Masterminds are the supreme pragmatists, seeing reality as a crucible for refining their strategies for goal-directed action. In a sense, Masterminds approach reality as they would a giant chess board, always seeking strategies that have a high payoff, and always devising contingency plans in case of error or adversity. To the Mastermind, organizational structure and operational procedures are never arbitrary, never set in concrete, but are quite malleable and can be changed, improved, streamlined. In their drive for efficient action, Masterminds are the most open-minded of all the types. No idea is too far-fetched to be entertained-if it is useful. Masterminds are natural brainstormers, always open to new concepts and, in fact, aggressively seeking them. They are also alert to the consequences of applying new ideas or positions. Theories which cannot be made to work are quickly discarded by the Masterminds. On the other hand, Masterminds can be quite ruthless in implementing effective ideas, seldom counting personal cost in terms of time and energy.
I took this test a few years back and the results are the same. Kind of amusing how often they bring up the words efficient and theory.
Rationals of note:
Albert Einstein - Father of Modern Physics
Niels Bohr - Chemist
Richard Feynman - Quantum Mechanics
Friedrich Nietzsche - Treatise on Modern Warfare

Let it be known that getting one's wisdom teeth removed, while quite amusing due to the fact that you are absolutely dead to the world due to drugs, has the most painful recovery I've ever faced. Nothing like spitting up blood while changing bandages, swallowing blood while the bandages are on, and feeling like someone is driving a nail into your jaw as a constant reminder that your just got fucked by a dentist. Thank god for T3's and lots of Advil.
In other news, home is a welcome change from the rigors of Lambton. My mother showers me with attention, often to my displeasure. My father treats me like an adult, as his peer, although he did before I left as well. My brother is going to college in the fall for the trades. Hopefully everything works out for them. Seeing my friends has come by slowly so far, but I did see Christine last night, which was wonderful. She wants to go on a picknick before I go.
Well, I'm getting a little dizzy sitting up, so I'm going to have to leave. Don't fear the reaper on the 29th.

|Beyond the limits of humanity
| Your brain: 20% interpersonal, 80% visual, 20% verbal, and 280% mathematical! |
| Congratulations on being 400% smart! Actually, on my test, everyone is. The above score breaks down what kind of thinking you most enjoy |
doing. A score above 100% means you use that kind of thinking more than
average, and a score below 100% means you use it less. It says nothing
about how good you are at any one, just how interested you are in each, relatively. A substantial difference in scores between two people means, conclusively, that they are different kinds of thinkers.
Matching Summary: Each of us has different tastes. Still, I offer the following advice, which I think is obvious:
- Don't date someone if your interpersonal percentages differ by more than 80%.
- Don't be friends with someone if your verbal percentages differ by more than 100%.
- Don't have sex with someone if their math percentage is over 200%.
| My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender: |
|You scored higher than 28% on interpersonal|
|You scored higher than 72% on visual|
|You scored higher than 29% on verbal|
|You scored higher than 99% on mathematical|
