Moved Into a College Dorm Room August 21, 2014, 11:03 pm
Hey guys, as of 8/21/2014, I have moved into a college dorm, and I will live there until probably somewhere in 2016. I'll visit my house on some days, but I'm going to live at my dorm for probably two years.

I also brought my computer with me so I can do my homework and such on it. This means I can also make my Doom videos on campus. If you're a YouTube fan of mine, then I'm sorry for the lack of videos. I was busy with other stuff and was waiting for the date to move in to my dorm in my new college campus. This is also my third college campus I've ever attended, and this time I'm living in a single room alone, but I can always talk to other students. I can also keep in touch with my family, but I also have to work harder now.

So yeah, I was pretty busy on this day.

Police block off my road for more than 12 hours. August 21, 2014, 3:18 am
Pretty fucking stupid, huh? Until around 3:00am they were here and I came home to find one end of crime scene tape on my fence. So I was told by their neighbour that it was something to do with weapons, but then it turns out to be air rifles... One thing I admire most about the American cops is that this would have been dealt with ages ago. The bloke's kid was seen taken by the police and he is a 42 year old from Luton who does not even live there, (it's his 18 year old girl friend's, apparently). I had to ask a police officer if I could go into my house. Worst of all, these cops had to waste their time by travelling from Bedford (only a few community support officers here). This is just an absolutely ridiculous way of dealing with this, in my opinion.

Can we ban Tapout and American Fighter shirts August 20, 2014, 6:47 pm
Because I don't like them and my opinion is the only one that matters.

Mold Problem? August 19, 2014, 9:14 am
It kinda feels like the air isn't very fresh in my home. My nose is a bit stuck, my throat is sore and my eyes feel like something's not right. I go out for a run and get fresh air and feel better. I visited my parents on the weekend and felt much better there. Now back home, and it's been 2 days and feeling sick again.

I had not vacuum cleaned for a month, there were lots of dust. I feel a bit better after I cleaned, but it feels like there's still something somewhere.

There are some places I've found some sticky old smelly cat pee. When my brother and his woman and their cats were here, the other cat peed like everywhere, and apparently there were/are some secret places of pee. My brother also left me a collection of wood he had collected from the forest in one wardrobe. I told him to clean it, but he just left it and everything else for me to clean.

I think I want to move into a different house. This is way too big for one person anyway. I have 2 large bedrooms, 1 small bedroom, 1 large other room, kitchen, 1 large toilet & shower and 1 small toilet. I only need 1 large bedroom for bed, computers, etc, and totally 1 empty room, kitchen and toilet & shower.

Uhhuh.. School starts tomorrow! Yey! Finnish version of Google Maps has all the street names written in Swedish! Even if I type in Finnish, it changes them to Swedish. And all the menus are in English. I think it's working pretty well... not.

Ok, time to go out, the rain stopped, sun is shining.. this indoor air is feeling wfl.

anyone want to make me an instagram account? August 18, 2014, 12:42 pm
I don't have a phone and they require you to download the instagram app to sign up. I downloaded BlueStacks to emulate a mobile device, but after installing it it already used over 200MB of internet data which is way too much. So I was wondering if someone with a phone + instagram could make me an account? Once the account is created, I can use instagram normally on my computer.

PM if interested

I want to play a wad, but can't because Windows 7 doesn't support bat files? August 16, 2014, 2:46 pm
Okay well I really want to play the strain wad. However I have Windows 7 pro which does not support bat files. I tried turning the 00X files into wad files and that doesn't work. Can someone show me how to play the strain wad without using a DOSbox?

argh how do i sleep again August 15, 2014, 11:52 pm
My sleep cycle has been all out of whack ever since summer started. Far too many days where I've stayed up until the early hours of the morning and woken up at some time between Noon and 2PM. It came to a head yesterday when I accidentally slept in until 3PM after staying up until 4AM the night before (not by my own choice, but because I simply couldn't fall asleep) so I figured I'd try a little experiment. As I'm typing this I've been awake for nearly 33 hours, thinking that if I exhausted myself enough that I'd be asleep by now and finally be able to start waking up before noon again. Surprise, surprise, despite feeling like I was about to just pass out on the floor earlier today I'm somehow not tired again.

Does anyone have any advice on how to resolve this issue? Better yet, does anyone else have a sarcastic response that won't help in any way whatsoever? That would be much appreciated.

So I just ate about 50 raw red kidney beans... August 13, 2014, 6:55 pm
And then I read this:

I work in agriculture so I just picked them right off the plant not knowing. No symptoms yet but...

Wish me luck.

Ventris and his Girlfriend want to move to England or Norway August 12, 2014, 1:12 pm
So here's the deal. My girlfriend and I are strongly considering moving to England or Norway. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Classic Studies with a minor in Humanities, and she is working on her Anthropology/Classics (Minor in Art History) undergrad.

We are strongly considering moving to either England or Norway (where a good friend lives who can help us as far as language barriers, etc.).

I've never moved countries before, and have no idea how to get jobs in other countries, etc. We need help, and ways to not starve to death once we're over seas. We're both American and living in Texas. Any help any of you can provide on tips and requirements for moving and getting work in either country would be greatly appreciated.

I would like to work at either Games Workshop, or as an educator. I can find a way of getting a Teacher's Certificate here in the US, but have no idea how that transfers to other countries.

ANY help or advice you folks can provide will be greatly appreciated.
