Well, tomorrow I go over to Las Cruces and Saturday I move in to my dorm. I've spent most of the past 2 days packing my all my cool shit(of which there is a copious amount).

Books!

I mentioned something about my personal library last entry, so let me present to you most(but not all) of my books prior to packing:

I put the windex there to try to show you that most of these are pretty big books, not yer run of the mill texts.
If you ever need to know anything about science fiction, astronomy, airplanes, air combat, missiles, warships, tanks, guns, World Wars I, II and III(!), fortifications, the cold war, commies or nazis, I gotcha covered. I'm hoping to impress girls. Hoping in vain, perhaps, but it's all I got!*

*that and being tall, handsome and funny.

Classes

Today I kinda finalized my schedule and filled it up all the way after reading a link in that Lounge thread asking for college advice. Among other things, the linked-to list suggested taking tons of classes, and that basically played upon my fears of lagging behind... so I maxed out my allowed credit hours(18), registering for a history class(finally) and a couple wierdo Honors courses that sound all liberal-esque(which will be a nice change since I've been living in the reddest county in the state practically).

My classes are:
Astronomy
Astronomy Lab
Perspectives on Film
(2nd year)English Composition
Intro to Psychology
"Journeys of Discovery": Nature and Society
"Journeys of Discovery": Why Art?

Should be fun... at least I got a dorm room by myself in the Honors section, which is good because I'm OCD about enough things that it would be a living hell for both me and my potential roommate.

Cool Picture

My brother sent me this picture, and it's pretty fucking awesome:

Note the tiny, tiny helicopter at the bottom center of the picture.(click it for huuuge)

F-45A Kestrel Vector

I did a top-down line version of one of my favorite designs, the F-45 Kestrel, which is supposed to be the super duper air superiority fighter in the future-times. It was supposed to be just a line drawing for me to color, but it turned out all vectorized looking, which is pretty neat.
Here's the Original:

Die, Human

My mom found this guy in our kitchen the other day, I thought you might like to see him:

Ok, well Sir Sapo and I are gonna take hit of the ol' Halo 2 like back in the day, so I better get going.

-Goodnight!

Naval picture: very cool!
Whipscorpion: scary but harmless

Good luck with the dorms! Hope your freshman year becomes a lesson for many things ;)

I am a bit confused. When do you americans go to college? Is it when you're 18 or 16?

18. According to a friend in the UK, our "college" is what is known abroad as "university."

Awesome library. Interesting that there's a book on spacecraft from a time period that hasn't passed yet. Maybe you know about this already, but if you have a Barnes & Noble near you, check out the discount section. It seems that 50% of it is awesome military books. I just picked up "The Official Military Atlas of the Civil War" for $20 (normally$70). I almost gave in and got a comprehensive book about aircraft carriers and one about the history of forts and fortifications too.

Oh, and a question from that entry with the first spaceship montage in it. Are numbers 6 and 7 based at all on the P-38 series? That just jumped into my mind first thing when I saw them.

I know, but that doesn't keep them from being the most evil looking things ever... if I ever make an RPG, 4-foot versions of these are going to be a dungeon enemy.

Thanks, and I hope so...

I'll have to check that out, although I think I have enough books on carriers(I don't know how I got so many ww2 pacific air war books) and forts to last me a while

Yup, all the ones in that montage are based off of real-world aircraft(or at the very least the shape of their wings), and I can name most, but not all of them.

EDIT: Sometimes the order gets messed up, so this looks like I responded to Texas before he posted :/

If I saw that thing on my kitchen, I would pack my stuff and leave the house to it, it can easily dominate a wuss like me :)

good luck with your freshman year, I hope it al goes well :)

ps: a few minutes ago I spotted a worm on the ceiling, it looks like the building is made of flesh and it's rotting.
