ME Miranda

Happy Holidays People :)

Life has been a bit melancholy lately but that's okay. I'm usually kind of blue at this time of the year. I finished my human sexuality class this week. I think I got an A unless I didn't add my points up correctly. It was a pretty good class and I'm glad I took it.

Next semester I signed up for a web design class using the Dreamweaver program. I've taken a similar class in high school so it will be interesting to see how things have changed. I'm also taking watercoloring (hopefully for dummies). I can't draw for shit so it will be interesting to see what I can get out of this class. I usually only work in mixed media arts. It's a 6 hr class on a saturday so that's going to be a shitload of painting.

GAMING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm growing to LOVE video games. Which is really not me at all. I finally finished Mass Effect 2 and I loved every minute of it. I still get combat anxiety but I powered through it. Again, like the first Mass Effect, the end was pretty easy compared with other parts of the game. NOBODY DIED!! I was worried my bb Garrus was going to die when I sent him to lead the crew back to the ship. I took Thane, my love interest, with me so I could make sure he didn't die. I definitely want to see Thane and Kaidan duke it out in the 3rd game for my love. I'm leaning toward Thane though.

I'm playing the free trial of World of Warcraft. If anyone else plays and wants to play with me let me know. Also I really want the new Star Wars MMO since I love Bioware and I LOVED KOTOR. Let me know if you're planning on playing that one too.

Other than that I started Fallout 3 even though I'm not a huge fan of open world games (which sort of goes against what I said above, oh well). I would play Skyrim but from watching my dad play there are way too many boring caves and draugrs to deal with.

On the tv front...I am SO behind. Basically I'm caught up on Community and Psych and that's it. Also I watching A LOT of South Park. Thank you Netlfix.

I just finished reading Pale Blue Dot by Carl Sagan which is a great read. It's so amazing to read about some of the "upcoming" space programs and questions about planetary conditions that hadn't been answered yet (book was written in 1995) and then google those missions to see what the actual results were. Sadly Sagan didn't live to see them. Now I'm reading The Blind Watchmaker by Richard Dawkins. Space and Evolution are kind of my thing.

Happy Holidays everyone if I don't write again sooner.
