What American Do I Have?

Wednesday, May 28th, 2008

What American accent do you have? Your Result: The Inland North You may think you speak “Standard English straight out of the dictionary” but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like “Are you from Wisconsin?” or “Are you from Chicago?” Chances are you call carbonated drinks “pop.” The […]

I can already tell this is gonna be the toughest month. Danielle is now 7 hours away instead of 6 and on top of that is working all day so she can’t just call/skype/IM me at random hours like she used to. Also it means I have to stay up later just to talk to […]

Get home-itis

Friday, May 16th, 2008

So I’m watching the documentary called Carrier, and its all about life on an aircraft carrier in the US Navy. This episode is getting close to the end of their cruise, and they all have “get home-itis” because they’re so eager to get back. Well, that is exactly how I feel. I’ve got 6 weeks […]

Piracy now a nuisance in LA

Saturday, May 10th, 2008

I’ve been wondering about this myself. Hillary and McCain both say they will create a gas tax holiday but NEITHER of them will be President this summer to do it, so why are they using it? From the Huffington Post: The gas tax holiday is small potatoes relative to everything else. But it’s so economically […]

My days in Austria are numbered.

Sunday, May 4th, 2008

I bought my plane ticket to fly home 2 days ago, for $1,056. It was actually cheaper for me to buy a one way ticket than a roundtrip, which was surprising as usually the round trip tickets are cheaper. I just got an email yesterday saying my flight schedule was changed and I will be […]

Male Birth Control

Saturday, May 3rd, 2008

So I’ve posted about this before, but its been a while. I guess now my biggest thing is that there are some articles out there titled things like “Sorry ladies, the male birth control pill is not for you.” I really don’t think there’s anything to apologize for.

Saturday, May 3rd, 2008

So, my brother graduated college in December (though he doesn’t walk til a week or 2 from now. Good for him, right? Ya, its cool. What sucks about it though is that now there’s only one kid in my family in college instead of 2. I didn’t think about this until I had to fill […]
