So, how did this near mirror image of Weird Al's "White and nerdy" come to be' You guessed it-from Home school co-ops and Church youth groups with the exception of the above mentioned public school loner in our group who met the organizer during a summer track team. So, how did this fearsome foursome fit into the crowd' This time being my first outside of Tuesday afternoon showings in a near empty theatre, our standard company being a few other Home school families scattered around the room. Sometimes I wondered if the only thing we could use to stand out even more among the Gangsta's, Goths, Punks, and other such pop culture was to run across the mall shouting a spoiler warning of the next episode of Dragon Ball Z,(Too which I had unfortunately forgotten my '1# fan' shirt) or the X-files if you prefer. Maybe it would have been better if I started a public discussion on my theories about Paul McCartney's supposed death early on, or if I really felt like letting loose, claiming to the public that I was the master of Elite Beat Agents. (That last one is the unchallenged truth) Now that we've got the picture of the night, here is what happened. We took out our plastic bags and ate our P n' J on whole grain, with a glass of milk to wash it down, then watched the movie. The end. Oh wait, I forgot the part about waiting in line for our tickets for twenty minutes(when you're used to all the venders waking up to the 'ding dong' triggered by entry, this comes with the power of  rs 07 gold  a Super back X double combo) After nearly getting my eyes poked out of several occasions when I turned my head into the spikes if the person in front of me, getting completely aghast at the fact that the EB Runescape venders refused to hook up their 8-bit for us(also that they stopped carrying it) so I could show my friends my vast skilz at Dragon Warrior,(early version of Dragon Quest) show the temps how to mod, hack into the security network so we could access the interweb and the four of us could show off our Runescape accounts. let me first say, you MUST be atleast rank 3 in Home Nation.Locations You Will Need Bastok Conflict Director - Invincible Shield - Metalworks - G-8 1b. Bastokan Palace - Metalworks - J-8 San d'Oria Conflict Director - Excenmille - North Sandoria - D-9 2b. San d'Orian Palace - Chateau d'Oraguille - I-9 Windurst Conflict Director - Mhabi Molkot - Heavens Tower - Clerical Chamber Windurstan Leader - Kupipi - Heavens Tower - Clerical Chamber Pashhow Marshlands Ballista - (I-7) Meriphataud Mountains Ballista - (G-7) Junger Forest Ballista - (I-8)How to get it First, speak to your Nation'ss Conflict Director. When you do this, you will watch a cut scene that explains the history of Runescape Conflict and the reinstatement of Ballista. Then you will recieve two letters, one from each nation's director. Take them to the director for each of the two nations. (See the palace locations above. After a brief cut-scene, you will be allowed to talk starcraft cd key to the Conflict Director. After you talk to him, you will loose one of the letters. One down! Go to the other nation and do the same thing. Next, travel back to your home nation and talk to your own Conflict Director. He will then let you see your nation's leader. Go to the palace and speak with the leader (Bastok and San d'Oria open doors, Windurst talk to the leader). Finally, head back to your home Conflict Director and you will recieve a Ballista License. You're done now!!! Addendum: Talk to the Conflict Director and ask about Conflict Earrings and he will talk about them and will give you one if you choose to accept.

How to Create a Postive Transformation in Your Own Life in Four Easy Steps, by Daniel D. Maurer

 

Generally, I have an allergy to any online article using the words "Easy" and "Steps." It seems, more often than not, that anything I can read under five minutes isn't going to effect a significant change in my life. (Yes, writers and editors, I used "effect" as a verb in that sentence.) However, here are four simple things I learned in recovery that anyone can learn to do. And guess what? They really work! For now, the title of this little essay stands, as is. - DTSM (Daniel Maurer)

It's very likely that some readers will recall nightmares with this picture.

Ever play the game Tetris? Yeah, you know the one. The object of the game is to fit in differently-shaped blocks into slots with other blocks to create a complete row. When you do that, the row disappears.

Whether you've played the game on your old Nintendo Entertainment System or on an online site today, you know the sadistic power that game has on your brain after you've played it for a while — after you're done playing, you close your eyes AND YOU KEEP SEEING TETRIS BLOCKS!

Pretty soon, Tetris blocks are everywhere. You see them in grocery store aisles with the soup cans; in pet stores in the kitty litter aisle; on a Christmas tree with the lights; in rows on cars on a highway; even within people walking in a mall. Everything gets tetricized!!

College is a difficult time in a young person's life. It is usually the first time that a student has ever been on their own and the first time that a student can ever meaningfully lose out on educational opportunities due to bad scholastic performance. Students need to juggle their studies, their social engagements, and mundane responsibilities like laundry, food, and sleep. This requires time management skills that most students have never learned.

 

Faced with overwhelming demands on their time, many students find themselves overwhelmed by stress. In fact, as many as 40% of students feel stressed often and as many as 20% feel stressed nearly all the time. In many students, this stress is a factor in depression, causing 10% of college students to suffer depression. Faced with nearly impossible time demands, high levels of stress, and possibly depression, 20% of college students abuse prescription stimulants in order to cope or self medicate.

Hello my blog name is Paul.  I am blogging from the UK, hence the strange spelling at times!

Thank you to Addictionland for having me as an "expert" blogger for the month of December which is a special month for me as it was in this month, a number of years ago, that I found recovery in the rooms of AA.  

I had not even heard of 12 step programs before my first meeting and believe that I had some form of psychic change at the meeting, for two main reasons - I had giving up completely or surrendered and the identification I had with those assembled in that room was enormous.

I felt listening to their "shares" that these people where just like me, that I had strangely come home, looking back. I had finally found the club or society of people that I belonged in.  No longer felt isolated or alone. I had been accepted fully for what I was. As someone who has had an, at times, abusive upbringing and an insecure attachment to my primary care giver, it was a beginning of a journey home, the beginning of an earned attachment, the start of my adoption into a surrogate home and family in fellowship.

This is my recovery, 12 step recovery, although I am not blinkered to other forms and have researched many other therapies too. The ideas in some are very insightful and if it works, work it.
