Pillows made to look like the Adobe app icons? Awesome. As soon as I can get $80 I’m ordering the whole set. It does suck that there’s a 7-9 week waiting period, but they’re worth it.

It’s 4:43 am, which can only mean one thing: all-nighter! Nothing quite like coding/designing into the early hours of morning whilst listening to some hardcore. Now you guys get to participate a bit. In the comments, tell me, how do you all spend your all-nighters?
Two weeks went by awfully quick… I barely even noticed the time go by. My days have been quite busy- for the weekdays, my schedule looks something like this:
# Wake up at 7:00 am, stare at the clock in disbelief and consider faking sick.
# Actually getting out of bed at around 7:15, followed by:
# Cursing at myself for not getting up sooner, I hurriedly go through my morning routine and run out the door, sometimes with breakfast in my hand.
# Walk to school quickly, whilst thinking of what to rant about.
# Sitting through an hour-and-a-half of summer school English class. The people there are _geniuses_. Seriously. One kid didn’t know what a library was… and I don’t think he was kidding.
# Walk back home, whilst being angry at myself for failing classes and having to walk home in the sweltering heat.
# Watch TV/Sit on the computer until around noon, after which I:
# Run quickly to catch the bus which I could have easily made if I hadn’t been so unorganized. Then I transfer to the subway, with its filthy stations and homeless people at every turn.
# Walk several blocks through Manhattan to the college. Note that this step is harder than the others due to the sheer amount of people walking in the opposite direction. I can barely manage to walk a block in Manhattan without getting handed a leaflet/flyer about churches, poverty, hunger, disabilities, and other things I don’t particularly care about.
# Sit through art class. This step is actually quite enjoyable, because it’s in an air-conditioned room full of pretty girls.
# Drag myself home, and at 4:30pm, all the trains are packed. Squirming around in a train full of sweaty businessmen whilst holding an 18×24 portfolio is not fun at all. Finding a seat during this time is harder than winning the lottery. Same goes for the bus.
# Once I get home I pile onto the couch and watch Family Guy, which is at 6pm. Yes, it takes me about an hour and a half to get home.
# Eat dinner at around 7pm. Sometimes I cook it, sometimes my younger siblings cook it, and sometimes we just eat some frozen food (after reheating it, naturally).
# Watch Family Guy again at 7:30pm. Why? It’s an awesome show, that’s why.
# After all this I log onto my computer at around 8:00pm, and spend the hours until bed designing, chatting, doing business, etc.
# Stagger upstairs to bed at around 11-12. I usually fall asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow.
# Of course this list doesn’t discuss things such as using the bathroom or showering, because frankly there’s no need to write about it. I’m just mentioning this because some smartass would otherwise point it out in the comments.
Pretty much every weekday is like this. However, summer school will end next week, so then I’ll only have art classes and I’ll be able to finally get some more sleep.
I’m still alive, don’t worry. I’ve just been busy working on a client’s website. Also, I picked up a DSi yesterday, maybe I’ll review it if I can find some time.
Another 4th of July, with the rednecks outside my house blasting away their illegally purchased fireworks. I wonder how fireworks got related to America’s Independence?
Not much else to say right now, really. The quick rundown:
* I recently started a band with a friend to take up some time. I won’t reveal the name or the myspace page yet, but it should turn out quite nicely. If you’re into heavy metal, hardcore, or death metal, you’ll probably want to check it out.
* I’m in summer school to make up an English credit. It’s extremely easy, by the way.
* I’m also taking summer courses at a college in Manhattan. It takes me an hour and a half to get there by subway, which is a little annoying.
* I finished the comments section, so feel free to comment some more. I’ll get to the other non-essential pages soon enough. I’m also going to put archives into a sliding panel at the top, much like I did with the search, as soon as I can figure out how to convert WordPress’ table archive output into definition lists.
