RIP Robin Williams (1951-2014)
By KevinS
Posted on 08/14/14
Robin Williams (1951-2014) Robin Williams was an absolutely exceptional comedian, talented actor, and holder of a special place in video game history: He was the first really famous gamer I know of. I’m sure there were others, but they kept a comparatively low profile, unlike one...

College Loans and Deferrment
Posted on Monday, September 15 2008 @ 19:11:16 Eastern

Yeah...im in a rut because I need to begin paying college loans soon and I can't defer them unless I can go to grad school today. And because of the bullshit with my degree conferral, I couldn't register for anything until now, meaning for the Spring semester for everything basically. 

Some schools around here are still accepting applications, but I am still trying to apply to grad school for the Spring, as well as juggle the job hunt. I am also trying to get teachers to send it letters of recommendation, gather enough money for the application fees, and try and keep health insurance all at the same time, because once I begin paying loans without deferment, I can't hold onto that either.

Anyone who has gone through this have any advice? I am trying to find a way to get into grad school quite literally now, so that I can defer my loan for a while longer and not worry about paying it, as well as keep my health insurance.

Lucky me?
Posted on Friday, September 12 2008 @ 09:48:22 Eastern

Well I got a call from a local high school here, and they said that they have an opening for a social studies class and were wondering if I was available for an interview tomorrow!

So, damn, excited right now. I just got my certification a week ago and now I might actually have a job, even though the market is bad and I have been looking for one (illegally) for the past four months, sending resumes and discussing positions with people all over New York.

Let's hope it goes well...I really hope it goes well. Getting this job would justify the hard work of not only graduating college, but also from my own front of looking for one and dealing with the bullcrap that goes with it, plus the unseen circumstances of the witholding of my degree and my certificate.

So I hope I get the job. For now it's a longshot, but it's better than no shot.

Finally
Posted on Sunday, August 31 2008 @ 12:50:07 Eastern

I got my degree, and my teaching certificate!

It's about damn time too, because I have been waiting for it since JUNE. Now it's late, meaning I can't get a job anywhere unless I get called in by a principal, so all my initial shopping for a teaching job has been for naught so far. Then again, New York has no real openings, because of cutbacks due to No Child Left Behind and shortening budgets that the state has created for itself to better govern numerous overcrowded schools with inadequate conditions, supplies, and sometimes teachers who don't give a damn because they lost their spark to do anything.

Yeah i'm cynical, but it's also true. I find it somewhat ironic, actually, that they have willing graduates who want to help in any way they can, but will not hire anyone because of cutbacks, all induced through the policies of both state and government decree.

But, at least I finally got my certificate, so now I can teach legally, so soon, your children will be in my classroom, learning about history and objectivism.

After three weeks of barely playing Rock Band, I finally got back on it. Mainly because my guitar is finally in working order again, a month ago the fret button wouldn't work at all, making me fail some easy songs both off and online (so to everyone ...   read more...

Well, like a lot of the fretwork freaks out there (Nick), I think I nearly orgasmed when I saw the new setlist for Rock Band 2 today, over 80 songs strong, and almost every single song alone can be a make or break deal for a game like Guitar Hero in ...   read more...

Until the forums come back, I am not going to be doing much here. I planned on writing two member reviews today, actually. One for GTA IV, and one for Viking, the game that I picked up on Monday and gave up on Wednesday. Good thing it was a rental.read more...

In the forums recently was a topic that argued how games are possibly taking a backseat in creativity, as sequels are constantly pumped out that become major productions for the respected developers. For me, this is a critical topic for the gaming...   read more...
