So today I took a caffeine pill (200 mg) to see if it’ll help me stay awake, and the little god damn pill made me sleepier! I know too much caffeine can actually make you sleepy among other things, but that was all I took! It’s supposed to be equivalent to two cups of coffee. This happened two times (the only two times I’ve taken a caffeine pill) and it doesn’t happen when I drink lots of caffeine in beverages… why? Not like I’ll need it anymore though, seeing how I’m out of school for good

I was in a meeting today, and some people were talking about some stuff. I was listening with one ear until one of the guys says something like, “So, it’s that way irregardless?” And another guy yells out, “Irregardless!!” That snapped me back into the conversation with a chuckle. Sorry dudes, that ain’t no word. I didn’t correct them though, cause I’m a gentleman.
Does anyone play paintball? Not sure if we have any extra markers, but if you’re interested in playing on May 4th (and have a marker hopefully), let me know!
One more final to go, then I’m done! Woohoo! It’s funny when I don’t jump on any IM networks for a few days, that everyone thinks I am dead. I had a good reason though, I spent from Thurs to Wed finishing up our Air Hockey playing robot, which was really cool. There were a few reporters at our presentation, but the link above is the only article I’ve found so far… and they misquoted the number of hours as 750 (it’s supposed to be 1750). I’ll try to get some videos of it playing, bloopers and details of how it was built up on a page soon. Well… I’m going to go take a break. I can’t hear a thing after firing a brother’s friend’s M1. Dang, that ‘ping’ it makes when your clip is empty is damn cool, although I’d probably think otherwise in a confrontation.
Yeah, so I went to KFC today. There was a delivery truck parked outside. As I walked past the truck to get to the door, the guy comes out of the back with a dolly stacked full of boxes. I see liquid pouring out of the boxes onto the ground as he’s wheeling it into the restaurant. I get a look at the box and it says, among other things, “Poultry.” WTF? The chicken was so unfrozen that thawed chicken juice was flowing out of the boxes. I think that’s just horrible. I did still manage to order and eat a Twister, though.
It’s a struggle every time. Do I get the same deodorant? Or do I dare to venture to something new? When I go to the store I instinctually head to the same stuff. It’s my deodorant. That’s what I use. But why? Then I stand there and think about trying something new. I always end up with the same stuff. Do you think most people stick with the same deodorant most of their lives? I would say most do. It just becomes habit. But how did it start? Did they just try something when they were young, and it stuck? I don’t even remember why I use what I use, yet now it’s stuck in my head as ‘My Deodorant’. Maybe next time I run out, I’ll actually try something else. When was the last time you switched deodorant?
I finally beat it! It took a day to get to the last level and about 3 to finally beat it. It’s a pretty fun game.
