Getting older feels so weird. Well, I guess it’s more of a passage of time thing thing aging, but the point is that it’s so weird how things change.
I used to go through so many of my friends blogs and LiveJournals every day that it was hard to keep up. Now I’m lucky if there’s one or two updates a week on my friends’ sites. Heck, I remember when inphiltrate kind of used to be a big deal, and now most of my readers are people that are reading the posts imported on my Facebook feed.
I used to have a lot of people to talk to on AIM. We’d have big chat rooms and I’d have 5 IM windows open all of the time. Now I go up and down my buddy list for people to talk to and find it difficult to find anyone to which I have anything to say.
Perhaps I’ve been feeling this way lately because I’ve been listening to a lot of Creed. I know that sounds ridiculous, but the majority of my Creed-listening days were 2000-2005. Of course, I still listened to them regularly after that time, but it was 2006 that brought me into a completely different world of music (pop-punk), so listening to Creed is kind of like a time warp, especially their first album. I didn’t listen to it when it came out since I didn’t know they existed, but it’s from 1997 and it has such an amazing (post) grungy sound, as characterized of late 90’s rock music. Going from synth-laced pop and energetic pop-punk (rock) back to this stuff just puts me in a different mindset, I guess.
Anywho, on Sunday at about 7:20 P.M., I decided I felt like going to church, so I did. I went to the Refuge on campus, which is where I used to go sometimes. It felt nice to be around a bunch of people my age, and I even signed up to do some video production work (utilizing my skills that were developed making videos for my communication studies class, and then subsequently for Team IS the Movie 1-4 :D). I’m not sure of the details, but I like video editing, so hopefully it’ll be fun. :D
I think there’s a small crack in the plastic on the back of my iPhone near the dock connector. Not too happy about that. Does anyone have any experience with getting a crack like that fixed at the Genius Bar? And on that note, is there anyone else that upgraded Tiger to Leopard to Snow Leopard and never had problems before Snow Leopard? I’m thinking a wipe and reinstall will fix it, but it’s kind of sad to see this installation I’ve been using for over two years get blown away. :(
I’ve been playing a little bit of BioShock and Halo (the first one) on my computer ever since I got my SSD (which is crazy fast, can’t wait to put one in my MacBook Pro next June). Fun games right there, I don’t know why I always stop playing BioShock when I pick it up, but I’ve played Halo enough for a few lifetimes, which is probably not that surprising since it’s my favorite game. :P
