A new Twitter application for Mac. It’s still in public beta but it’s stood out to me. Check it out.
That’s reallllllly creepy. I’ve been noticing how every time I spell definitely I have been spelling it wrong. … Like right now, I just did it again and now when I finish this sentence I have to go spell check it. hunsonisgroovy: The hardest word to spell correctly ever! It always comes out as: definitaly defiantly definitly definitley
The National Collegiate Emergency Medical Service Foundation has a new forum - and I designed it! Check it out and if you’re a college student interested in EMS, consider registering. It’s free and a pretty awesome community is starting to form there.
This is so weird! My freshman year of college is just about over. Technically, the first semester of my sophomore year is over, but that’s just a credit thing. Anyway, I still have to pack and figure/plan out all the details of my mom coming to get me and pack me up. I’m happy to be on summer vacation but it’s also very weird leaving a place that I’ve spent more time in...

Reasons Why I Feel Like I'm Cheating At College
Today, I filled out a survey that was longer than any test I’ve taken all year. One of my classes spent the entire time making paint brushes. I am graded on my ability to make calendars. I’ve been in the library five times, and only to buy sandwiches. The only math I ever do is calculating how much longer I have to sit in Intro class. I’ve yet to receive an actual...
She doesn’t even follow you.– Lauren, because Tumblr now dictates my social level.
What song is that?
I hate when you know what a song sounds like and can recognize it but don’t know the name or enough information about it to actually find it online. So sad.
Recently, I started working on yet another project to add to my ever-growing list of things to do. Ever since I started college, I’ve been busy working for my school’s ambulance company and discovered the National Collegiate Emergency Medical Services Forundation or NCEMSF. They recently created a message board (using PHPBB3) and I started posting on it. They’ve been using the...
Why are there so many twitter applications out there? I mean they each have something “different” to offer but still…why?
To me, Macs are more about the aesthetics than computing power.– A quote from one of Microsoft’s “Laptop Hunter” ads. One of the most ignorant statements about Macs that I’ve heard in a really long time.

Nobody blogged thus far today
Miss Whitney. I would like to let you know that I took your message to heart and blogged extra tonight, just so you’re dashboard will be lively with the happenings of my day. I also tried to include links and references to other people you follow, hopefully making your dashboard a flurry of reblogs and likes as well. Enjoy. Missing you terribly. wlcmckinnon: And that is a really...
My First E-Call
Lately, I’ve been training as an EMD (Emergency Medical Dispatcher) through SUA. It involves “shadowing” a trainer, and answering the phones, using the radio, maintaining the dispatch console and computer (all under the watchful eye of a trainer or supervisor). Being a dispatcher is a lot of work - fun work though. You’re basically in charge of all the vehicles and people...
Today was so surreal. After dispatching for a few hours in the morning, I went with a few of my SUA friends to the SU Spring Reception at the dome. This is an event that they have a few times this month to greet accepted students. We manned the SU Ambulance booth, giving out foam ambulances and getting people to consider joining and fielding the occasional “so if my child comes here and gets...
“Imma Put It On Her” by Day26 ft....
Touch duh president, duh ciroc obama.– P.Diddy - really, we’re gonna resort to “Ciroc Obama”. WTF?
I went to the vending machine yesterday to get a soda and there was a (perfectly sealed) bottle of iced tea just sitting next to the machine on the floor. I grabbed it, and ran away like I stole something. Later, after indulging in one of the most delicious Brisk Iced Teas ever, I felt guilty. Some poor schmo that forgot his $1.75 drink on the floor is probably missing his tea. Immoral?
I Have A Room!
Finally, I have a place to live next semester - even if it’s not where I’ll actually end up by the time I come back. The housing process once again started up tonight and at 8:01 PM I was able to login and pick a room. There wasn’t much left on the side of campus I wanted but miraculously, my second-choice room was staring right at me! It’s a room in a building called...
Passenger Lands Plane After Pilot Dies →
This is a pretty crazy story - and one I’ve dreamed would happen to me (in some sick way, I want to land a plane in an emergency to show people how useful Microsoft Flight Simulator is). Anyway, a passenger landed this multi-engine plane in Miami under the excellent control of Miami’s ATC. Great story - audio clip included. Props to my main man and home dog Kevin for finding this.
No, I don't care who has love for Ray-J.
Or in the words of Ray-J himself, “Foor duh luva Rayuh-Jay”.
“Somebody’s Watching Me”...
Might easily be the stupidest and most far-fetched concept for a show that I have ever had the displeasure of being forced to sit through for ten minutes. Even after looking up a synopsis online, I still have to say it sounds insane and trippy as all hell. Standby for Lauren’s defense about how it is the best show ever.
I am almost done with my freshman year of college. I have no idea how that happened - but it’s pretty crazy.
What I want to talk about next…– The dreaded words of Jeremiah, my writing professor. Every time it seems like class is winding down he pulls out this death phrase that means I’m going to be bored by his monotonous voice for another twenty minute segment of something I either know already or don’t care about.
Tumblr Thinks I'm Gay
I hope you mean because it’s a blog about iPhones as opposed to meaning a blog about half naked men. ericstriffler: johnburke: In the “Tumblelogs You Might Like” section, Tumblr reccommended I check out a blog that features half naked guys (and fully naked in some cases) taking pictures of themselves in front of a mirror with an iPhone camera. WTF Tumblr, WTF. After reading your...

This is FREAKING awesome, I'm gonna do it. →
I’m definitely doing this too! Let’s do it together!!!
I really hate that after you create an event on an iPhone, you can’t go back in and change what calendar the event is filed under. That’s kind of dumb.
It bothers me when...
christinefriar: American people spell things the British way. Savoring. Not savouring.
It really bothers me when professional websites have spelling errors - especially when the site is small and relatively simple. I came across this when checking out Eleven2’s new spin-off server website called 180Servers. We come from all different backgrouns and from allot of different companies. Really?
