"What I Did Over Summer Vacation"
« on: August 23, 2010, 11:16:16 am »
 Some of us are already in class now, but some more still have a few fleeting days left. But at some point, by a friend or teacher, we're always asked the unavoidable question: "So, what did you do all vacation long?" Summer may be nearing its end for everyone, and a lot of times, it feels like it was way too short. Whenever this happens, I think way back (and flip through my Facebook page) to June when it all ended, and go from the beginning, thinking about everything I've accomplished. At the very least, it's helped me realize where the time's gone, and almost always makes summer being over easier to accept. Here's the list I've got so far:

-Went to a few bonfires
-Got my own car
-Helped shoot an amateur movie
-Failed at a surprise trust fall
-Got beat up by a blackbelt
-Got covered in corn syrup
-Figured out Pendulum is the best band ever
-Attempted to summon the Fire Lord from the Necronomicon
-Became nocturnal for a month
-Bought an Xbox for $10
-Beat Fable I
-Beat Tales of Symphonia
-Beat Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones
-Got 2.8 million points in Tetris, a new personal best
-Beat Pikmin with five days to spare in a 24-hour period
-Got introduced to S4 League, and have been obsessed for the past two months
-Created the most badass weapon imaginable
-Learned to three-ball juggle (record of seven catches = learned)
-Felt more loved than I've ever felt before
-Felt like I wasn't alone for the first time I can ever remember
-Figured out the way to tell the story I've been wanting to tell all my life
-Felt more pumped up than I ever have before
-Made a list to which everyone said "tl;dr"

So, FT... how'd you spend your summer vacation?
And that's why they call me Duino Duck- Drake of Daring, Mandarin of Magnificence, Water Fowl of West Seattle!

This summer was another great one for me, just like last year's

1. Went to my second Dream Theater concert. I was basically front row, and had the time of my life.
2. Got a well-paying job I can keep through college,  that will pay for my college education
3. Discovered great bands, and expanded my musical taste
4. Got Monday Night Combat, possibly the best time-waster ever!!
5. Hanged out with my friends on many occasions
6. Manged to practice drumming every single day of the summer so far :)
7. Made around 19 drum covers of songs I'd never imagine I could play
8. Joined a new, promising band, and met plenty of new people through that
9. Finally bough Porcupine Tree's "Anesthetize", which is the greatest live performance I've ever seen
10. Went to volleyball camp for a week, and had a blast
11. Went to two summer meetings for a group I attend at my school, and had a ton of fun!
12. This week, I'm about to play my first live show with my band
13. Also this week, I'm seeing Jim Gaffigan live!

Overall, it was a pretty productive summer

Mostly worked on music stuff. All theory revision and playing around with the bass, guitar and eventually picked up a drumkit. Worked on some collars, bought my tickets for London MCM, and... nothing else, really. Talking, sleeping...

tl;dr, my summer was shit. Sorry to end up on a down note, but really. x.x

Summer's not over for me for another 2 weeks, but:
- Learned to drive
- Learned to drive... in standard transmission : D
- Saw a inception, which was mind blowing
- Forced myself to ride a roller coaster (I didn't like it but...)
- Saw Macbeth with an all female cast
- Managed not to procrastinate all of my summer reading to the last week of Summer
- Watched some animu
- Drew some stuff
- Made a tail and sock-paws for a fursuit that I want to finish but probably will not finish by Halloween

And next week I am going on a cruise to the Caribbean which will probably be by far the best vacation I've ever had since it does not involve visiting relatives or 9 hour drives.
...Except I am not sure how my parents will afford to send me to go to college now D:

I was in Israel the whole summer. Most of the days I did nothing, but good things I did

-Did art requests
-Worked with dad (building)
-Worked for random people
-Met my relatives and had a good time with them
-Maybe other things with family

I went to an amusement park after i got back to Finland.
