Been sick all day, so nothing new has really happened. Throat hurts, got a massive headache and not apetite. Haven't been motivated to do anything all day.

Hope everyone else's week started better than mine.
Gotta keep the short so I can get some rest for tomorrow.

Already drifting off to sleep,

I thought it was spring now. It's below freezing outside, and with spring break in two weeks its starting to get to me. I hope that we get some sun before then, because I'd rather not spend spring break stuck inside wishing I lived somewhere warm.

Obviously raccoons aren't deterred by the weather. My trash can was raided last night, luckily trash day was the day before so there wasn't much in the can.

My lucky bamboo is really starting to grow, I've got the perfect spot picked out to transplant it this summer. I might grow a mini garden around it, just to have some fresh fruit or vegetables. I tried it last year, but I had some bad seeds so maybe this bamboo will spead the luck to the plants around it.

Pining for some warm weather,

My bracket is officially dead. Was an interesting tournament this year wasn't it?

Finally picked up a new new pair of headphones since my other ones were destroyed. Got some nice Sennheisen (sp?) ones that have a 1/4" adapter that lets me plug them into my amp. Pretty cool being able to practice without disturbing everyone around me, hehehe.

Typed that English paper today, and I feel pretty proud of it. It's due Monday so maybe late next week I'll know what I got on it.

Gotta head over to a friend's house now to practice a new song we're doing, hopefully everyone's weekend is going soon.

Feeling the music,

Today I decided to finally purchase Minecraft and I'm glad that I did. Fully addicted already, however that caused me to get several hours behind in my school work. Oh well it was definitely worth it.

I'll have to keep this post short so I can get back to work, but I might post some Minecraft creations later.

Still digging up blocks,

I apologize for my lack of posts recently, I guess I haven't been living up to the "daily" part of the blog, huh?
Been out of town for my cousin's wedding over the weekend and of course I managed to be stuck in the only part of Cincinnati without wifi. Oh how I dreaded the feeling of not being able to load up my blog every morning on my iPod. Definitely glad that's over.

Unfortunately, I returned home to find my new pair of head phones ripped to shreds by the resident cat. A bit of good money straight down the drain, I don't know whether to bother getting another pair or just stick to these iPod earbuds.

My "bamboo" is growing nicely though. I've read that you can transplant it so I might try to grow a patch of it out in the yard later this summer.

Out of here for now, but I promise I'll be back.

This weekend has been pretty boring overall, but I can't complain. Found a few of my old Misfits CD's and have been listening to them almost nonstop. They're definitely an awesome band.
Helena is probably my favorite song by them, but they're all good.  I did finally get a pair of nice over the ear headphones for a good price, they're some JVC DJ headphones, picked them up for $40 and they're amazing for the price.

Got a few big tests next week, but with Friday being the end of the quarter I can feel summer coming faster and faster.  Also on Friday, I get to be an usher at my cousin's wedding. I'm excited for him, looking forward for getting out of town this weekend as well.

Definitely loving this weather, I rode my bike onto some path and into the middle of nowhere yesterday and just laid down to watch the sky while I listened to my iPod.  It was almost surreal being so far from any form of activity, almost like I was in a dream.

Looking forward to more nice March weather,

Well, I found out my lucky bamboo isn't actually bamboo today. What a shame, eh? It still looks nice, adds some color to my room haha.

Not much to write about, really. More rain so I can't work on my sword, but I've still been annoying my neighbors by playing that new Strat nice and loud.

I am looking for some new headphones though, I'd like to get  a decent pair preferably over the ears. My earbuds have been disagreeing with me lately and falling out every 5 minutes.  Suggestions are appreciated, I'm no brand freak but my budget is under $100 preferably.

Still fumbling with my headphones,

And the week rolls on...

Tuesdays, not too special but infinitely better than Mondays.

Not too much to say, but I am going to be hopefully starting my band back up. We're all pretty skilled, and a couple of us were in bands together before so I think this has a pretty good chance.  I'm hoping to write a lot of new riffs for this, with most of our influence coming from Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath-esque bands.

Looking to revive some old school metal,

Man you can really tell when its Monday can't you? I woke up and some how managed to cut my armpit on my deodorant leaving me slightly agitated for the rest of the day. At least today went fast.

Decided to do my research paper on the effect of music on today's youth, like lyrics in songs, the effect of being a musician on your grades, etc etc.

I finally found my camera cord, so here's those pictures I promised of my guitar and sword. However, the sword is pretty rough at the moment due to lack of time put in so I might work on it daily from here on out if I can and post updates everyday. Pretty much all I've done to it is shave it down to size, and make some marks on it for future cuts.

The guitar, if you didn't read the post the other day, is a Fender Lonestar Stratocaster. Its beautiful and sounds even better than it looks.

Going out to do some woodwork

What a day

Ahh, how I love the rain. It seemed almost endless today, so I sought shelter inside of a nearby GuitarCenter. Haha, of course I can never seem to leave one without purchasing something. With my birthday in just two days, I splurged and got a fancy new Fender LoneStar Stratocaster, and I would make love with it could I figure out how.
Unfortunately, my sword project is put on hold since I'd rather not have my garage floor covered in wood chips.  I did take some pictures of my guitar and sword, but misplaced the cord to my camera, so hopefully tomorrow I can upload those.

As a side note, I really appreciate your feedback, its nice reading the comments everyday!

Signing off for now,

Research Paper

Hmm... I have  a research paper that I have to write for school now, the general topic is effects on the youth today from the media and basically everyday life like how song lyrics influence decisions. Any narrowed down topic ideas would be appreciated :P

In other news, I'm hand carving a sword from a stick of wood using just my hatchet and a hand saw for now. When I get to detail work, I might grab a Dremel tool or something. I'll upload some pictures of it later.

Hope everyone had a good Friday, I'm looking forward to the weekend as my birthday happens to be this Monday.
Signing off for now,

The Beginning

Everything has a beginning, some better than others. This is the beginning of my blog. The subject matter, you ask? I myself do not know, but it will vary from day to day, and I shall impart as much knowledge upon you people of the world as I can and enlighten your days.

A Japanese proverb says: "Beginning is easy - continuing hard."
I believe this will prove itself in time as I continue this blog.

For now I shall depart, good day to you all and may you continue on with your lives.
