    I found out about all these storms from work because they are setting off people's alarms like crazy (provided the house the system is in is still standing). It's gotta be crazy down there. I had several police departments in Alabama tell me they were not even taking the info on burglar or hold up alarms because they were dealing with such an influx of shit. Kind of a scary time I would think. Glad you're safe buttcheeks.
    I did call one woman on Saturday about a couple burglar alarms going off at her place, she told me "It's ok, my house is on fire, the firemen are setting off the burglar alarms." Crazyness with these storms.

    Yeah. Looking at them, it looks like some sort of CG Final Fantasy magic.

    I'm glad to hear that you are fine, I just read about the deaths and my first thought was "Is IP okay?"

    on a side note, some of the people in my department are assholes.

    e Provost has canceled the exam periods of 8 a.m. and noon on Thursday, April 28. All professors must give students the option of taking their current grade in the class or an incomplete. Professors will be responsible for communicating with their students their options as soon as possible. At this time, all campus offices will be open Thursday.
    and yet there are two students behind me studying for an engineering final for tomorrow morning. And having had the teacher, I can completely 100% believe this man will make them take it. Even though these two only got power back 2 hours ago.

    What a douche.

    Go to the bottom if you want to see how the storm traveled across America.

    I'm pretty lucky. The storm that destroyed Tuscaloosa for whatever reason decided not to nail my town.

    Moving really really helps you understand what you give a shit about.

    Move. When you do throw out anything you haven't looked at in over a year that aren't photos or individual mementos of awesome things in your life. Then compress those photos and mementos into the smallest format possible and leave all that old shit behind.

    I don't think we need to talk about the philosophical equivalent of having to tell a kid why he can't eat candy for every meal.
    Can't help it I'm a philosophy major, also nothing is obvious when you try to prove it.

    I think you should also quit the tacos and rum.

    I don't think anyone has to worry about me becoming all work and no play.

    But like I said, I don't really want to go into the difference. As much as I like to write big paragraphs about obvious shit, I don't think we need to talk about the philosophical equivalent of having to tell a kid why he can't eat candy for every meal.

    It's really not, let's say I have two hobbies Street fighter and weight lifting. I have a good deal more fun playing street fighter but while lifting can often be exhausting and painful it provides me with a kind of satisfaction that SF doesn't. It allows me to better myself physically and feel more comfortable in my own skin. But at the same time SF is often enormously more fun and I feel a certain satisfaction from winning/improving.

    What i'm getting at is both hobbies provide me with something the other doesn't. And ignoring the specifics of the example a hobby that improves you physically/mentally is important but so is one where you can enjoy yourself without reservation. Not to say the two are mutually exclusive of course. You just really shouldn't forsake one for the other since both are important. If you derive a good deal of pleasure from collecting toys than you should continue doing it. But also do something that satisfies other aspects. But if collecting toys and whatnot isn't making you enjoy yourself than yeah you should stop and start doing things that do.
