Title: More college life stuff
Posted: December 08, 2009 (10:32 PM)
Sandro: So you're a graduating senior man, how you feelin' about that?

Andrew: Um, I'm having some mixed feelings, like the contradiction of getting tired of something even though you have really good memories of it. Usually expressed as "getting over it."

Sandro: It's not really getting over it. It's that it was good when it happened, but I've changed.

Andrew: Exactly.

Sandro: I don't really live my life that way, just in moments of clarity.

Andrew: Like when you're high.

I hope my drug-inspired musings aren't annoying people too much. Tomorrow night is the last officially organized party for the semester in my 150-student coop house. After that that it's just finals for everyone. All of mine are take-home, which I'm supposed to be working on right now, but I'm procrastinating as usual.

In some sense I've made school difficult for myself by living in this place. It makes college life a struggle to maintain the virtually impossible balance between the life of excess of the coop and the life of discipline of the classroom. Considering where I go to school and where I live at that school, both of these go to an extreme. Some people move out because it's too much for them. There are times when it's too much for me and I have to withdraw temporarily. And there are also times when I think nothing in the world could possibly be better, and those are the times that I stay for.

On a much less serious and more mundane note, I recently made a list of my favorite video game characters, and it turned out rather strange:

Marth
Ganondorf
Captain Falcon
Falco Lombardi
Alex (Lunar SSSC)
Hiro (Lunar EBC)
Kyle (Lunar SSSC)
Ronfar (Lunar EBC)
Jim Raynor
Siegfried Schtauffen
Ashley Riot

In rough order. Perhaps the most interesting thing is that my fondness of the top four characters is entirely based on their appearance in SSBM. In fact, for the top three I have never even played the actual games they starred in.

Glad to see Marth is one of your favorites. Fire Emblem rules!

Yeah, I've just never actually played the Fire Emblem game he starred in.
