A first-Hand Account from the Tundra

Can we just take a minute and talk about how my campus is officially a Tundra?
It's been snowing since Friday.
FRIDAY.
As all of you well know, today is Monday.
Currently the temperature is 13.8 degrees, Fahrenheit. Today, it barely broke 18.
Our first snow came at the beginning of October. Insane.
But it's been so windy here these past few days that if you open your mouth to speak, your teeth start to hurt from the cold.
It's hard to walk around and actually see where you're going because it's cold on your eyes; that and they keep getting pelted with huge snowflakes.
I love snow. I really do. But this is just insane. If it weren't for the wind, we'd be alright!
I think the weather just needs to calm down a bit...
I've already fallen once this week due to the snow (albeit melted...) I slipped in front of the elevators and landed on my left knee, ripping the knee of my sleep pants and bruising my knee. It even bled! I do not appreciate that at all...
It makes me not want to leave my dorm. My room smells nasty (not my fault- a story for another time, maybe) and I can't even open the window to let in fresh air. I can't go out to get food like usual because I freeze. It's insane!
On the upside, I've gotten a lot of writing done. My fans are pretty happy for that... two chapters in two days = very pleased readers.
Anyway.
Where ever you lovely people are staying, keep warm!
If it's snowing, remember to be careful driving and be wary of ice!
Have a safe winter!

Windows Live Messenger Officially Converted to Skype

Messenger has moved to Skype

Messenger was retired in April 2013 and is no longer available or supported on most Mac and Windows operating systems. *

You can continue to make audio and video calls with your contacts on Skype and Facebook and send IMs for free—your contacts will come with you when you update to Skype and sign in with your Microsoft account.

I am disappointed by this. Microsoft has abandoned millions of customers worldwide in favor of their newly acquired toy, Skype. They flaunt it as a merger but the merging process is reported widespread to be faulty and does not transition your contact. They also have not yet ado…

You Must Be The Greatest!

"The irony was not lost on me: the man my trials had molded me into, was the master I'd spent all these years trying to find. I was lost and alone, awash with despair. I sought mentorship, I sought guidance- I'd fallen to my knees and begged for it. And now, there is no other way to say it, than to say I'd been blinded by suffering; I just could not see that my many struggles had been the hands sculpting me into the guide I'd sought. Where I once sought from others their forgiveness for my failures, I now forgive myself, and seek to help other extend the same to themselves. Where I once sought from my loved ones support for my dreams, I find now that they did not extend aid because they saw who I could be, and not who I was. I am my own master. Master, and servant - I am not above humanity, nor below it. I am of it, I am it. I am all that is human: life, death, love, loss, joy, and suffering. I am all of it, and because I am all of it, I am important, and necessar…

WWE Brand Split Mock Draft

So we're coming up very close to the brand split in the WWE, where RAW and Smackdown will be exclusive brands with exclusive rosters, and Smackdown will be going live every Tuesday.
Now, there are a number of factors that could shift the way the draft is handled. For example, we're still uncertain which show Shane and Stephanie will run. We're still unsure if they're certainly going to bring back the World Heavyweight Championship, or run with my idea and merge the IC/US titles and make that the main title on Smackdown. We're still not aware if tag teams will be split, if each show will have a unique division and title. We're still not sure if we're going to have women exclusive to each show and what that means for the Women's Championship.
Now, barring all surprise (not currently on the roster, and not NXT) draft choices, let us work with a few assumptions. First, I want to assume they will be bringing the World Heavyweight Championship back. I want t…
