I have noticed over the years that people seem to overreact to weather, especially while driving. If it starts sprinkling, then people automatically slow down a ton. This then causes tons of traffic and always pisses me off. True there are some reasons for this, some would say hydroplaning and the like, but it seems like this is not always a possibility. Also, people state that it is hard to see, when there is a tiny bit of rain. I mean, the visibility isn't 3 miles, but it is still quite good. There are exceptions to these little rants, obviously, but i'm just stating annoyances in my life as of now.
Currently, I am going to school in St. Louis, so I keep getting hit by all of these damn storms. Today, as I was leaving work, this woman ran out of another building yelling at me and my friend. She was yelling to get inside fast, and she seemed to be close to insanity. We looked at her and stopped, then we just continued on our way. There has been a tornado warning since the middle of the day, so I can see why she would tell us to go inside. The storm was around 10 miles away still, and we would obviously drive home. The rain hadn't started yet, and there was no wind. To me it seems that people overreact to tornado warnings, or most people do anyway. True there are many many deaths that happen each year due to insane weather, but people expect a tornado to occur, if one does 30 miles away (Also, I have been in a situation where a tornado jumped over my head and killed around 6 people a little ways away).
I guess I have one of those stereotypical college kid's points of view, as in "This wouldn't happen to me." Normally, I am not like this, such as with things that occur on a regular basis. What are your guys' thoughts on all of this? Do you get pissed off really easily when people start to slow down for no visible reason? Or are you one of those who are the opposite of me?

Today, I started my first day of work at my school. I got this job as a student worker for the summer, a maintenance job that is. I was expecting to have to do certain jobs pertaining to replacing appliances or fixing them and the like, but I was completely wrong. I'm glad I was wrong, because now all I have to do is paint pretty much. I just have to paint dorm rooms over and over, so it is not a bad job at all. Getting paid at more than $10 an hour is the real nice part.
As the first day came, I didn't know what to expect. I arrived there with my friend, and all the workers gathered in a conference room to figure out what the hell we were going to be doing. We were then broken up into different groups to work under different "sub-bosses". Our group went to these apartment style dorm rooms, and we were then told we would be mainly painting. We went around the dorms moving the furniture to the center of the rooms, so we would not get paint on it. After this we were shown how to paint, as you are shown how to do certain things at the beginning of every job.
At the end of all the talk of what we were going to do and how to do it, our crew leader stated how he did not have enough of the required items/tools for us to paint today. So he then proceeded to tell us to lounge around and not be caught. We stayed in an empty room for around an hour just sitting there. Eventually we switched rooms and buildings, but we did the exact same thing. I passed the time by having alot of smoke breaks, but it was extremely boring. Eventually 3:30 came around, and we finally were able to leave.
It was one of the most boring days of work I had had, because we had no music or anything to do, while sitting around.At the end of the day, I got paid for around 6 hours of work, while not doing any work. Pretty awesome day in my book. Now to sit back and watch Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas!

Polar Pops and the Equivalent

So while at college I have been right near a gas station, a Circle K to be exact. I personally love gas stations, because of their overall convenience. At Circle K you can get a Polar Pop, any size, for 69 cents before tax. This is a 44 Oz soda for 69 cents! This is an amazing thing for them to sell, because it is also extremely cheap for them to make. All they need is the syrup and the carbonated water. I am addicted to these sodas, pretty much. I don't have the caffeine addiction really, but just the deliciousness of these drinks drives me to want more. Every day I would get around two of these babies at school, and now I have to walk roughly a mile to get one, but I still do it! It is a Polar Pop man. You can't pass that deal up. Also the walk gets me to walk a bit, such as with at school, since you walk everywhere.

I have had soda since I could remember. My dad having a huge ass 64 Oz soda from the local gas station, and I would go up and take sips or drinks. Some would, or most, say this is unhealthy and going to kill me or make me fat, but if one has a healthy life style besides around 100 Oz of soda a day, then I think you will be fine. Though it is unhealthy to drink that much of soda. If only soda was healthy, and it still tasted so good. Unfortunately we live where all the tasty things are terrible for you.

P.S. The movie Zombie Strippers is amusing, and it is such a terrible movie so far.
P.S.S. I finished Zombie Strippers earlier today, and yeah it was just bad. Hot girls and just a random plot. It was entertaining though, so i'm glad I watched it....maybe.

Been Awhile...Blenders

So it has been a while since I have written in this blog. I was wanting to find a new hobby, and for some reason this did not stick. Since I do not have school to drag me down anymore, I now have more free time to write random shit. Now I will being where I have left off, my musings about every day life.

Blenders are an extremely useful item to have in a home. I mean, seriously. These things are great. You can make shakes out of pretty much anything. If you have ice cream laying around with milk? Bam, you have a perfect shake. My brother would always make these 1000+ calories shakes by adding chocolate ice cream, milk, yogurt, fresh fruit, and protein powder. These would be made after a work out, and damn they were amazing. They were a meal in istelf, and it was not TOO unhealthy. It is extremely filling and really easy to make. It is pretty much a meal that is delicious, especially on a hot summer day.

Another fantastic thing my brother has done with a blender was making a great alcoholic smoothie type mix. We took a good bit of really cheap vodka and put it into the blender and added some frozen pink lemonade concentrate. Mix this concoction up and you have got an amazing tasting drink.The worst vodka can be used to make a great drink that gets you really really drunk.

These are just two examples of the amazingness of blenders. Do you guys have any good recipes for just delicious drinks and or shakes?

In an earlier post, I was talking about the awesome-ness of cigarettes. A couple people responded to it telling me to try the e-cigs. I went online recently to look at reviews and the costs of them, and it seems there are only good reviews. This made me quite suspicious, so I asked around my smoking buddies if they had tried these e-cigs. A couple of friends said that they had gotten great buzzes off of these, and they enjoyed it due to the healthiness of it. I had only one guy say that it did nothing for him and it was pointless to smoke. I feel like it would be odd to smoke tobacco out of a vaporizer, since I have once or twice and it was alright. Though, the benefits to having these e-cigs would be fantastic. I wouldn't smell like complete sh*t and my health wouldn't be degrading constantly. Most people would just say to stop smoking, but I love it too much. This Thursday i'm going to order a starter kit from some site (I don't know what yet) and try these little inventions.

Have any of you tried these? If so, what was your impression of them? Any flavors you would suggest to me?
Also, if someone owns one of these, where did you buy it?

I can't do a long post about much. It has been a busy weekend and is still being one, with being at college and all. I will definitely write about something random tomorrow. I don't know what yet, but I guess i'll just figure that out tonight and when I wake up, hopefully not hung over. So I hope everyone has a great Saturday night!

What are you're guys' plans for tonight?

The Beauties of Hemp

Hemp is an amazing plant. It is pretty much illegal to grow and cultivate, here in the United States, because of its close relation to Marijuana. I actually wrote a paper on this for my English class. There are SO many benefits to the cultivation and use of the hemp plant. Hemp can be used for over a thousand different uses. For instances, clothing (which is the main usage of hemp nowadays, it seems) can easily be made of hemp. These types of clothing allow heat to stay with in the clothing, and under it, during cooler temperatures, and it allows cooler air in when it is warmer weather (I will be honest I don't know how exactly this works, but it is just the plant doing this and allowing different temperatures in and out, i'm guessing). Also, hemp seeds have a ton of amino acids in them, that are beneficial to our health. It might not taste that good, I doubt it would though I have never tried it, but it would be EXTREMELY healthy. Hemp paper is also another thing, it would help save trees around the world, for those that love trees this is a good thing. Hemp can grow really easily in most climates, especially the Midwest. It also is good for the health of the soil.
Alright, most people will automatically label me as a "hippy" due to this post on hemp, but in reality it is amazing for environment, costs of production, and humanity in general! It is pretty damn cheap to produce and cultivate. True, we would have to alter all our factories in how they produce goods, so that would be a ton of additional costs to add onto the switching to hemp. That is pretty much the only negative, in my mind, of switching to hemp production of clothing and paper, especially.
Furthermore, hemp is classified as having less than 1% THC, the drug that makes you high from marijuana (for those who don't know this), while marijuana is classified as having 3% or more THC. What is the plant called that has 2% THC? I haven't found this, but I bet it would probably fall into marijuana.

Anyway, hemp is awesome pretty much. There are so many benefits to it, so in my mind we should all lobby for it. Though for hemp to be legal, most likely marijuana has to be legalized. Otherwise, people for the legalization of pot could easily cry "They are pretty much the same plant herp derp!". Hopefully this will occur sometime soon, so then trees can be saved, and we can all enjoy nice forests to go chill at (until they are cut down for more space for housing).

What are your opinions on hemp?
