My university Internet just has crazy speeds. I mean just nuts. By far the best part about living in residence here (which I won’t probably be doing any more after this term) is the insane download rates I can get. I know I’m repeating myself, so have some screenshots instead.
The first two images are thanks to speedtest.net (nice website) and the last image is me downloading a large high quality speed run from speeddemosarchive.com. (Not over the LAN!)
Speaking of which, the latter is a very fun site that has a large collection of speed runs for varies games. My hobby is watching speed runs for games that I’ve either beaten (to see how much people can exploit it!) or watching runs of games that sound interesting but I know I’m never going to get around to playing.
Discovered something nice today. According to Yahoo, I’m more important than:
After 2 years and a bit, my relationship with my long-time girlfriend, is over. She broke up with me. Guess we couldn’t handle the long distance. Time to get get working on my life. I plan to take my mother’s advice and “make my own happiness.” Smart woman, she is. I know I can rely on her as well to always stick with me. Thanks, mom.
Anyway, I plan to do a lot more yoga/working out, get cracking on some of my personal projects, and just get on with my life. It’s time I started living for me. To the girls that have turned me down: you’ll have trouble finding another this dedicated. Time I start living for myself. Time to make money and be self-motivated — not living my life for some females with heels.
One more thing: I need to value my friends more. I used to have so many close male friends (and female ones too) and then I started on this thing called dating. I was so dedicated that I would always weaken my friendships and pretty much end ones with females to make sure they didn’t interfere. Fuck that. Car is out of the way. Life on.
Aside: Yes, I was rather upset when I wrote this. It does reflect my new goals that I’m using to cope, but the wording is stronger than I would have used in a detached state. It’ll be true for a while, I guess. Still, I am sad that this one fell apart. It had such a good start and so many good points about it.
Man… I’m back from a 12 day vacation with the family. I will post more about this later.
I am glad to finally have my personal website up. Here, I will put things that do not belong on Forest Of Thought. This includes my projects, learnings, and experiments. Hope to have a good ride.
