      I'll do my best.

      I'm going to start by saying that I'm really bad at expressing myself. For example, this post took me over 40 minutes to write. I'm good at coming up with cool, interesting ideas for stories or characters and things like that, but I can never get those ideas across to other people when I try to explain them or write them. I even find it hard to express how I feel about something to other people. I try to tell them how it makes me feel or what I think about it and end up rambling and making it sound terrible. I'm also the worst teacher. I do well in my classes and have tried to help others before, but I end up having to write out my process on a piece of paper and hoping that they kind of follow it. I have seen a huge amount of great stories that are well written and well presented that take the viewer through a journey to get across a profound point, but...

      I can't really do that.

      I have tried to write. I really have. It always comes across, to me anyway, as broken and unfocused. I can't progress things in a natural manner. I have seen things that do that really well, and I like to think that I've learned from them. But I still haven't been able to do that myself yet. Also, drawing is out of the picture too. I know it takes hours of practice and study, and even though I think it would be really cool to do, I know I couldn't put in the time.

      This is why I get so excited about some of the things that I watch or read. I think "Yes! Yes! They explained all of things in my mind so well. Everybody watch/read this thing so you can hopefully understand the things that I think but can't explain nearly as well as this thing."

      This is going to change. I want to make something. I want to write something. I want to create something that I can show to other people and say "This is something that explains my ideas and what I think in a really cool, interesting, and different way." I want to, and I know that I can. I just have to be motivated enough to practice and learn and do. I have nothing stopping me from not making something great and so...

      I'll do my best.

    • I'm Coming for you Grad School

      2 years ago

      It is done. I've finally finished my application to the Chemical Engineering PhD. program at the University of Texas Austin! I like to think I have a pretty strong application and have a good chance of getting in.

      Graduate school was never a guarantee for me. I knew that I would get my bachelors, but I wasn't sure if I was going to go past that. Fortunately, after hearing from almost everyone that I worked with at my internship over the summer, I've decided to continue my education, and, once again at the suggestion of almost everyone I worked with, I've decided to go for the full PhD. I've worked hard up to this point in my educational career and am sure that I can handle what grad school has in store for me.

      Why UoT Austin? Well price is a big factor, they are one of the top 10 schools for chem. eng. in the country, but also, I want to go out and live on my own somewhere. I've been commuting to college for the past 4 years, and I would love to be away in a different state living on, essentially, my own. UoT Austin isn't going to be the only place I apply though. Notre Dame is on the list. Pennsylvania is on the list. If I can get into any program out of state, as long as the cost is alright, I'm most likely taking it. Although, UoT Austin is probably number 1 on my list.

      So, soon (ish) I might have my PhD. in chemical engineering with a focus on Polymers, Material Science, and Nanotechnology, and I am soooooo excited about that.

      Wish me luck!!!

    • Thankful for All

      It's Thanksgiving and what am I thankful for? Pretty much everything.

      I know that it's cliche to say that I'm thankful for everything, but I can't specify any one or two things that's going on in my life that I'm thankful for. There is just a tremendous amount of amazing that I have the privilege of being around every day, and I couldn't be happier or more thankful to the people or situations that make that happen. This includes family, friends, my education, my career path, and basically all else that helps me and supports me. This of course includes everyone seeing this post.

      I hope you all enjoyed an amazing Thanksgiving. I hope you enjoy your weekend. And I hope that you will have even more to be thankful for next year.

    • The 7 Wonders of the Me

      2 years ago

      Thank you @pennypanda, I will do my best to please the satisfy your curiosity.

      1) I'll pretty much eat anything. There's a very, very small number of foods that I don't like. Namely, I'm not a fan of anchovies and salmon. That's pretty much it, and the salmon thing is so unfortunate. I want to like it, but I don't.

      2) I like to call myself a bit of a thrill seeker. I'm not afraid of heights, falling, going fast, getting hurt, pretty much anything along those lines. I've skydived, cliff dived, I'm jumping off the stratosphere next month. If it's dangerous and fun, I've either tried to do it or am up for it anytime.

      3) I've been knocked out 4 times in my life. All of them were before I turned 12, and all of them were pretty much my fault. Like the above fact, I was pretty fearless as a kid too.

      4) I was on the varsity pole vault team at my high school. Granted, we were a very small team, and everyone else was very cautious about it. Good ol', caution to the wind me finally came in handy, and I learned quickly.

      5) I know a multitude of hard to learn songs. I just think it's fun to sing songs like "It's the end of the world as we know it", "We didn't start the fire", and "Bombs over Baghdad."

      This is not easy thinking up 7 things about myself like this wow. Only 2 more, suck it up me.

      6) I don't really drink. I can't justify the cost or the carbs. Besides, it doesn't really affect me that much. My inhibitions for social situations are fairly low in the first place, and I've never had the need for "courage juice."

      7) I've never really been in a fight for a few reasons. 1. They hurt. I don't really like to get hurt. 2. I'd be the worst fighter. I would immediately run or, judging from my sockem bopper fights, just dodge, taunt, and anger the other guy more. I wouldn't be able to land a hit. 3. I've never had a reason to fight. No one's ever gotten angry with me that much to want to fight me. I've never even really been bullied.

      There you go. 7 facts about me that I'm now realizing look like they belong on a dating profile. ladies?

      that sounded creepy, I take that back
      but, seriously, yes "ladies?" but in a non creepy way
      This is getting long and awkward, I need a way out of this...
      buttz
      nailed it

      Now that this trial by fire is over, I pass the torch to these others.

      Have fun!

    • Halfway there!

      Well, halfway plus 1 day, but I got home late yesterday and missed it

      Youmacon is coming up, and as some may know, I'm going to be cosplaying Gray from Fairy Tail on Saturday. If you are not familiar with the Gray in question, here he is...

      seven_minutes_in_heaven___gray_fullbuste

      That is a lot of muscles. I'm convinced half of those muscles don't even exist. Now clotheswise, it's green pants. No shirt required. Check. Hairwise, black wig. In the mail. The only thing challenging about this particular cosplay is those pesky, glorious abs. I committed to doing this back in May and have been doing some half-ass workouts for a while. I wasn't getting anywhere. So, October 1st, I decided to whole-ass it, and have been hardcore working out and dieting, trying to get a respectable body for this cosplay. and I'm not spraying them on, don't even suggest it. After about an hour of exercising each day and a good diet, I've gotten here...

      Now,I know it's not quite up to spec with Gray, but compared to what I was at, I'd say that if this is halfway, I will be Gray for Youmacon.

    • I'm turning 21, I think I'm turning 21, I really think so

      3 years ago

      I feel like that's a long title.

      I am now officially 21 years old as of 11 days ago, and I must say, this is nice. I've waited a long time for this day, and although I don't feel any different, I think that a lot of good things are going to happen now.

      First off, I'm not much of a drinker. It's just never suited me. And all of those carbs, can you believe. Let me tell you. I'm not going to tell you, I'm just sayin'... I'm not going to say anything either, but you know what I mean.

      The main reason that I'm excited to be 21 is that I am, for the most part, restricted no longer. I can join any events that I want, I can go into any place that I want, and I can experience so much more. This is one of the things that really bothered me at RTX. At nights when the group I was hanging out with wanted to have fun at the bars and what not, they couldn't because of Mr. Minor over here. I felt like I was holding them back. Now, with my new found being olderness, we can go into those bars and dance and have a wonderful time. Even if I order water, that fact that I can go in and have fun is what matters to me.

      So, even though I don't feel any different, which is a good thing because I liked how I felt before, I'm still happy to have crossed this threshold because I can now continue to have amazing times with great friends at any wonderful establishment and in any manner that I so choose. And with maybe a little less hyperbole.
