starting the week on 4 hours of sleep
Well that’s nothing new.

So this one robotics team, 1868. Is sponsored by NASA. They meet at the fucking NASA Ames Research Center, have multiple computers with CAD, and probably have NASA machinists, or at least a NASA machine shop. 840? Oh, our shop is a closet, with no ventilation and lights that turn off sporadically. They meet alongside 254, another NASA sponsored team. And like…we always bitch about 254 and...
by age 75, you will likely have slept about 220000...
That’s trippy. And kind of scary. As much as I like sleep, and as much as I don’t get enough sleep, I don’t like the feeling of sleeping in hella late. I should really adjust to this idea of sleeping normally. Shucks.
Ellen: CANNOT EVEN CONVEY THE EMOTIONS I AM FEELING RIGHT NOW
Ellen: NO ONE SCREWS WITH MY JAPO GRADE.
the sneeze that never was
You know that feeling where you have to sneeze, but you just can’t do it? Well it’s 10 times worse when you have a cold and you’re all congested and shit. My eyes started watering, and I sat there scrunching my nose for a good minute or so. I waited on tenterhooks for that sinus-clearing explosion, but it never happened. And then the tears began streaming down my face in an...

Go for the jugular. AHAHAHAHA. GET IT? :D
taking the sat tomorrow
And I’ve taken no SAT classes, completed no SAT books, finished no SAT practice tests… BUT I’M GONNA ROCK THAT SHIT. Yeeeeeee. Fuck SAT prep. I’ve got this. :D
shit, it's boiling!
I feel like "chem lab" has come to be synonymous with words such as "incompetency," and "fail".
But at the same time, where would I be without you guys?
(It's hard to be intimate with lab goggles.)
Odd stuff, this chem-business is.
the good times
Tonight was slightly reminiscent of build season. Chaotic dashes between the rooms, picking up what we forgot. “Oh you remembered the duct tape!” “BRIAN…!” And then all the LOLs afterward, walking to the parking lot, on the ride home. Riding in the trunk, “black driving,” “ARI…!” or “shit! police!” I got home after seven, my...
gee thanks, universe
According to the first law of thermodynamics, You can’t win, you can only break even. According to the second law of thermodynamics, You can’t break even.
i think i know when i've failed, alright?
Look, I said I did really poorly on the Calc test; worse than the usual “oh no I got a B..” kind of thing. But of course it’s just “what are you talking about…you always say that, and then you get an A-. Or a B+, how tragic.” Understandable, to some extent, given that that’s what everyone says. But I really meant it this time. I got an F on the Calc...
shit son, you're right. and i am sorry.
Anthony: ... yeah for once you actually should be sorry. your negativity is more of a roadblock than any incompetence you think you have.
tumblr posting via text message…whaaaaat.

Anna: Alright. Sounds good.
Alex: Thank you! Also, "alright" is not a word :)
Anna: Alright, I'll keep that in mind. :]
Alex: damn you, olson. damn you.
so much for a new start
I’m back to the same old habits in AP Chem already. Fanfuckingtastic. I really was planning to do the homework. People were saying it was do-able. It was conceptual. I thought I got it. But schoolloop said Wednesday. The calendar date said Wednesday. I heard Wednesday Wednesday Wednesday. Physics was changed to Wednesday. Someone complained about 2 science homeworks being due Wednesday....

There’s some part of me that really hopes this is satire. But then there’s that eye-opening realization. It’s the familiar Asian parent stereotype, taken to its furthest, nearly unrecognizable extreme. I’m drawing parallels to Beloved and shit. Jeeez. Well that’s food for thought.
i need to take my mind off things
Anthony: don't dwell on it.
Anna: too late.
FRC 2011 Game Manual encryption code. Except I didn’t download it beforehand and now the FIRST website is down…LOL. But anyhow. I woke up at 7:30 and watched the kickoff broadcast from my bed. I fell asleep halfway through and missed the game animation. Buuut TKO’s got it on YouTube already, so no worries. Hehe. It looks. So. Cool. And now it’s really hitting me that...
You’re not just a robotics team. You’re a FIRST robotics team.– Dean Kamen (Hah. What I’ve been saying. Yeeeee)
Mozzie: The reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen at once. [Einstein]
Mozzie: Life is more manageable when thought of as a scavenger hunt as opposed to a surprise party. [Jimmy Buffett]
Mozzie: Fate has a way of putting in front of us that which we most try to leave behind.
Mozzie: There are many things of which a wise man might which to be ignorant.
Peter: All of your quotes are getting on my nerves. Peter Burke.
Peter: How's it feel to walk a mile in my shoes?
Neal: I prefer Italian leather.
Peter: You can either be a con or a man. You can't be both.
