Rain. It’s an interesting thing, rain. And well, it does so in a lot of places, especially Bangladesh during the Monsoon season.

If you hadn’t figured it out, it rained yesterday, it rained quite a bit. Well, at least it rained in the part of the city I was in (Uttara). It didn’t rain all over the city.

Also, well, I dunno… I’m finding it hard to blog about stuff… because right now, life is so… normal… I do school, then I fool around, read a book, surf the web, and listen to music… and ya, that’s about it.

Oh, if anyone who is reading this hasn’t already, they really should give Steven Erikson’s Malazan Tale of the Fallen series a try, the books aren’t for everyone, however, they are excellent works of literature. I’ve been rereading the 1st Book, and I’ve learned quite a few things that I missed (or couldn’t have known because I didn’t know other things).

Anyways… on with life.

Last night I had a sleepover.

Well, not me exactly, actually, my sister and my brother had a sleepover.

Mike’s friends, Nathan and Charles came over, while Rachael and (not for the entire night, but for dinner and then a bit) Audrey came over.

It was fun… we played Gamecube, DS, and generally just messed around. Oh, and that was also why I was awake at 11:30PM, lol.

Anyways… now, I’m not sure what else to talk about… this is the sad thing about my life… it doesn’t seem that fun.

Oh, I’m going gaming today… not sure if Jacob will come, but Mike and Nathan will.

Anyways… ya…

I’m tired.

Of course that might be because its 11:30PM on Friday… I’m not sure…

Anyways…. umm… my week was good… school is umm… not bad (lol!)

Oh, there’s a curfew. Ya, we can’t leave our house, due to some college students rioting, protesting, and burning up cars. The military was in the streets yesterday, and tommorrow they will most likely continue the curfew (it was not enforced today, ‘cuz its Friday).

Anyways… ya….

Oh, when this is posted up, it will no longer be Friday, but Saturday (or possibly Sunday).

Now, I’m going to watch a movie…

Life... its normal

Well, last I checked it was 100% humidity outside and raining… but, that’s normal for this time of year in Dhaka.

Still, I’m enjoying myself… Malazan #5 is great… the usual Malazan stuff that’s so addictive.

As for school… well, I’m struggling through The Institutes of Biblical Law, enjoying Basic American Government, resenting the fact that no matter how I push it, I have to do biology with Exploring Creation with Biology. Its not that the book is bad (no, in fact, I would go so far as to say that Dr. Wile (the author) is the best Science Book author that I have ever read!), its just that I don’t like science. I’m also struggling through In the Shadow of the Almighty a biography of Jim Eliot.

Oh, and my Latin book is umm… the Author’s name (Henle) and Latin… something like Henle Latin I or something… its good, pretty basic, and I’ve already done this a while ago, still, I am very much enjoying it.

Oh, and I’m writing a bunch of different stuff now… got a Sci-fi story going, but right now I need to sit back and outline a bit. Then I think I’m going to continue the stories of all my WOW characters… Laen (well, technically, he’s not mine… he’s my friends, but I’ve written about him), Qzar, Griwn, Fnedar, and Tarnoc, plus others, a Death Knight/Lich, and Bladzun the orc. Plus canonical characters like Thrall, King Bronzebeard, Sylvannas, Arthas, the Lich King, Illidian the Betrayer, Maiev (MAYBE), Malfurion Stormrage (twin of Illidian), and Furion’s wife… durn, forgot her name.

And, ya… that’s what I’m doing now.

Man, just reading that list of characters make me shiver with excitement, so much potential, and so many good characters.

Oh, one final things… by now everyone is back in school, which means everyone is back (but not necessarily in Dhaka) from summer vacation... which means all my friends (at least, my boarding school ones) have departed and Nathan Schmidt is now back in town.

Ya, until then.

Well, school is here... and it isn’t that amazing.

Now, don’t get me wrong… I enjoy school, of all the subjects I’m taking this year, the only one I don’t want to take is Biology, and the only one I’d rather not take is Bible (I know I’ll learn something, and I want to learn it… but well… its just something that I’d rather not do).

However, the AMOUNT of school I have is umm… depressing. I have tons of school, and the worst part is, two of my subjects (Math and English), which I am taking via Pottersschool (a online-Christian school) won’t start till September!

So, I am now going to have to work extra hard… I have lots of school, and I want to take a 2 week vacation with my friend Brian in India… not to mention I’ll be going to the States for six months around Christmas time, which isn’t helping my school schedule.

Anyways… ya… that’s what’s up with me.

Oh, and my friends are going to sorta make a band (I can’t play an instrument, and dislike performing in front of crowds, so I won’t be joining), and I think they are going to take my name suggestion seriously, I suggested they name it Thirsty.

Well, FedEx dropped by... ya!

So, I now have my Geometry Book, all of my English Books for the year, and best of all Midnight Tides, Book Five of the Malazan Tale of the Fallen by Steven Erikson. It rocks.

Right now I am in the process of writing out my next RP session (updated Dhakite Rpers... read it if you haven't link is: and listening to Thousand Foot Krutch (given to me by Brian).

See you guys.

My summer... what did I do?

Well, for the first time in quite a while, I woke up before 8AM today. (My mom was nice and let us sleep in until 7:40AM). So, I suppose I should begin the beginning of school with a list of things I completed this summer:

Book Read:

  1. Empire of Blood by Richard A. Knaak
  2. Read parts of the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy Series by Douglas Adams (reread some books and read others, not sure which).
  3. Read parts of a Robin Hood Book (still reading it)
  4. Dragons of Spring Dawning by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman
  5. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows by J. K. Rowling.

Of all of these books, I think I enjoyed HP 7 the most, and read it in the least amount of time (I finished it in under 24 hours… 10 of which I was sleeping!). I defiantly enjoyed all of them, but HP will defiantly have a special place in my heart.

I did other things this summer to. I watched a bunch of movies (Hot Fuzz, Batman Begins, Luther, and others I can’t remember) watched all of the 1st 2nd and about half of the 3rd Season of Lost. I also had weekly sleepovers with Brian. Another thing I did was learn how fun regular visits to the Gaming Cafes can be. Right now, I’m in the process of trying to form a Counter Strike Clan. It won’t be easy, but I’m going to try.

What else have I accomplished this summer? Well, I played, and won Max Payne 2 on Normal and Hard. Started, but didn’t finish, Overlord (will do so), got a bunch of music (Linkin Park, Thousand Foot Krutch, Disturbed) from my friends (Jacob and Brian) and finally decided on what I hope will be my 1500pt Space Marine Army.

Anyways… time to get back to the salt mines. I have History awaiting me.

School - needs more love, but deserves some hate

School. The Bane (big B on purpose, lol) of all (some) who make use of a School’s educational facilities, anyways… I must brave a trip to mine (well, sorta) on Sunday, for I, must continue my High School Education.

Yes, I know, terrible isn’t it? Well, not really, I actually am looking forward to this year. I’ll be taking English, Civics/American Government (it looks better than I thought it would) Biology (last time I ever will take this course), Geometry (not sure what to expect, but it’ll be fun, same teacher as last year), and Latin (better than actually LEARNING a foreign language, believe me!).

So, 5 courses, and a ton of work, it’s not heaven, but it’ll be fun. Yes, I’m one of those “freaks” who enjoys school… no, I’m not to cool for school; I’m just to smart for it (lol).

In other news, I got my copy of Harry Potter 7, and also received 2 of Disturbed’s Albums from Jacob today, its Heavy Metal (and Rock) in its true form… loud, headbanging, and freaking awesome… I turned it on a while, and right now my ears are ringing, but well, its still great stuff.

So… ya… that’s me. And remember, any new people who haven’t seen my blog, please leave a comment.
