Title: I am fucked.
Posted: October 23, 2005 (10:30 PM)
I am fucked.

I could be doing something to help the fact that I'm fucked but blogging is far more interesting than reading Middle English texts. I have an English midterm in twelve hours in an English class where the majority of the shit we read isn't even in fucking English. Thank you University of California at Berkeley. I spent about four hours last night fucking translating a miniscule portion (about 200 lines) of the stuff I'm being tested on -- translating in a fucking English class! Meanwhile, it seems Middle English authors and orators always dealt with an audience of fucking retards. I drew this conclusion from the fact that they always seem to feel the need to convey their messages by saying everything thrice:

Men will often hear and tell -- of the battle of the king
And of knights that were hardy -- that much is true
They will need to hear -- tales of such things
Hardy battles he may hear -- of apostles and martyrs
That hardy knights were -- that stood in battle with the king


This is my punishment for choosing to be an English major. Fortunately, English classes can only get better after completing the class on literature from Beowulf to Milton, since the rest of them will actually be in fucking English. At least Chaucer will be ridiculously easy by the time I get to that.

It's easy to get wound up about this shit. For the first time in my life I actually have to worry about the possibility of failing classes -- that fact that it's a possibility is new and unfamiliar. Clearly I'm not smoking enough fucking pot.

I took a bit of a break from the four hours of academic bullshit by playing some of Metal Gear Solid 2, a game that's engrossing and retarded all at once. It's so much fun choking guards to death or hiding from them by jumping over a rail and hanging from a ledge. The physics and the incredible enemy AI makes it so believable -- that is, until it stupidly breaks from its seamless world with moments like these:

Colonel: Raiden, if you want to activate the node, walk up to it and press the ACTION BUTTON.

At which point, Raiden stupidly repeats: "Uh huh, I see. So if I want to activate the node, I walk up to it and press the ACTION BUTTON?"

That sure is a testament to Hideo Kojima's brilliance.

I think I'm just about done for now. I spent the summer trying to get over the biggest crush of my life and then she started IMing over the past two months, and she's got all this stupid fucking sappy romantic bullshit in her profile.

God, I'm just not smoking enough fucking pot.

I don't think I am either. That's the only way this dumb philosophy paper (redundant) could ever be easy to write.

I feel for you, I really do. (The girl thing.) I'm just wondering how you go from talking about Hid... Hied... the guy who invented Metal Gear to the girl. You scare me, Bobby.
