Always hold onto your racket

This is probably the most bizzare point in a tennis match I've ever seen.....and I've seen many. Watch the whole video to see =0)

Somewhere only we know

Life is too hectic to include blogging....well, at least to blog regularly.....and that was certainly the case last week. Four exams in one week and two home assignments due. I love it how IT professors comment they like to spread these out every two weeks. What they don't realize is that when they space it out all into the same week, it does the students no good! So yeah, it sucked to be a computer engineering major during the week of Feb 19 through Feb 23. You were guaranteed a minimum of four test, or five, if you were taking biology this semester too. As good students, we would never cram for an exam (hint: sarcasm).....which only meant staying up until 2 am and getting up at 8 am the next day to study some more. When exams came, I was extremely disheartened to find them to be so long. My stats exams has 7 questions, each with parts a - d. There's no time to double check my work. I was so physically drained afterwards that I felt my knees were shaky. It is a condition called ITritis. If you want ITritis, just include a combination of the following into your life: 5 hours of sleep, empty stomach on exam day, onerous exams that ask you to decode 32 bits of hexadecimal opcode, and voila, what do you get? One exhausted person who's wondering seriously if he shouldn't become a Chinese major where he's genetically programmed to do well.

On an absolutely unrelated note, I enjoyed wasting four hours to watch the Oscars. It raised my IQ by many points to hear these fashion critics on E! whose only form of communication is of the following structure: Oh my god, (insert actress name) looks so (insert adjective: eg, hot, sexy, gorgeous, slutty, and the list goes on). The Oscars event was actually really good, and Ellen was funny, especially when she said: "And America did vote for him (Al Gore)....but it's complicated."

I was glad that Helen Mirren won for the Queen, because it was such a hilarious movie (although I'm not sure if it was suppose to be a comedy). I did, however, shout at the TV when the stupid announcer say The Departed was based on the Japanese movie Internal Affairs. Hello!!!!!!!!! It's Hong Kong!!!!!!!! Get it right, especially when it won best picture.
