    I am absolutely cool. Kewel, even. People who know me well call me Siberia. Don't even need a fridge- just hold the beers for a couple seconds. Rest my foot against my case, and my P4 940 drops below 0 at 125% load. I have to break the icicles off my mustache in the morning to brush my teeth. NOAA has asked me if I'd be willing to go down and repair the breaks in the Antarctic ice shelves.

    Any more questions?

    BTW- my Mom says I am, too, so it's gotta be true.:grinthumb :grinthumb :approve:

    I've been a mouse potato for the last 9 months or so due to a not-so-good state of depression I let myself get into. But I seem to be slowly getting better now and out more. I go walking outside now just for the exercise and am getting back to opening up to people again (family and a few friends) and doing a little socializing. But it's kind of hard because I've always tended to be a somewhat reserved/shy person while in person. On forums and the computer that doesn't apply so much. As far as for other interests, I used to enjoy on a fairly regular basis: photography (landscape mostly), tennis, mountain biking, hitting a good local pub for a good import or two or three :D on occasion, and some other stuff that was definitely healthier than sitting in front of a computer or Playstation/XBox all day and night for days on end.

    Oh well.... live and learn as they say...:blackeye:

    So I guess I'm not that cool right now but that's alright. There's always hope. All you have to do is grab hold of some, hang on and don't let go. And that's what I'm doing. So there. :stickout: :grinthumb

    Cool is remaining calm when you're tempted to throw your computer out the window.

    Cool is accepting others as they are and refraining from pre-judgments even if you don't agree with what and where they are at a particular moment and time in their lives.

    Cool is smooth jazz on a breezy and semi-cloudy summers day with the highest temp around 76.

    Cool is the wisdom of the Ancients.

    Cool is a cucumber if kept in the fridge long enough.

    Cool is [​IMG] and [​IMG].

    Cool is just cool, you know? :)

    Yeah, I beat all of the side missions (alternate guilds). My favorite was probably the Dark Brotherhood :darth: because it was the least boring. I liked the Mages Guild though except for the end when Traven ends himself (makes no sense to me :suspiciou ).

    I am not cool. I go to school for 5 hours a day and then come home and go on the computer and play games and go online. I never go to parties. I love going to movies and hiring them but i am most definitely not cool. I love this site and surfing the forums, I have learnt so much and you guys are all like my extended family. At my school I am known for being a "Nerd" Dont be mean to nerds, chances are you will end up working for one.

    dont be so harsh on yourself alvdy, it doesnt matter, and you seem young, dont worry youll soon be off to college or work where theres plenty of @$$.

    as for me, ehh, im kinda retarded, in not that short bus way as im really just me, i know everyone is different but im all over the place at all times, and i think my main drive besides avoiding work and responsibility as much as possible is being as easy going as possible that and not caring in that zen sort of way (i think i have it right, im Catholic so i have no idea what im saying) but, dont let things bother you, and dont bother others. you know?

    Wow...I didn't know a thread would last this long.. You know alvdy, he's right. Sometimes, I think to myself, "Why do I do this stuff? I'm never going to be anything anyway." But somehow, that thought gets repressed, and I go through my day, trying to be as calm as possible.

    I'm actually an interesting combination of a book geek and a tech geek. I'm still trying to feel out what I want to settle into for a career... right now I'm leaning towards teaching English and trying to teach some computers on the side (or do some tech support to supplement the income), but I've had a couple folks recommend that I check out technical writing.

    Anyways, I guess I say that to say that yeah, I do stuff besides sit in front of my computer... but in the decade and a half that I've been into technology, I've found that if there's one thing I regret through my schooling, it's the times I was subconsciously ashamed of my tendency toward computer geekdom. If I had given it more free reign in the kinds of things I studied as an undergrad, I have a feeling I'd be feeling a whole lot more settled career-wise...

    Life is good, though. I've managed to get through everything with a good group of friends, many of whom are into the same stuff I am (computers, sci-fi/fantasy books, even tabletop gaming) while still being social and well-adjusted. I guess if I'm stressed about anything, it's finding a job that'll be able to fund my lust for the latest technology, and not bore the heck out of me. But aren't we all? :)
