I ate Captain Crunch today for breakfast, and as much as I enjoy the sugarary taste of cavities (and I do), I really hate the fact that once I'm done eating my cereal I can't help but brush my teeth afterwards. That awkward filmy taste it leaves in your mouth is something that I, and I think a lot of others, could do without.

Therefore, I propose that a company invents a new market of breakfast cereal...the kind that cleans your teeth just as good as "Crest" does, but it tastes two (maybe even three) times as good as the actual paste.

This way, if people are in a hurry to get out the door and they're torn between not having an offensive breath and enjoying a delicious breakfast, they can disreguard their whole "Pros - Cons" diagram by grabbing a bowl of this delicious cereal. It's the best of both worlds.

I think I'm really onto something here......

I've about had it the KSB's bullshit. Despite the fact that I have good presentation skills, an understanding of business theories, and am fully functional with computer programs that are relevant to the work place (sich as Microsoft Word and Excel), my GPA gets bogged down by classes that not only don't test this knowledge--which seems pretty "real-world" applicable, if you ask me, but try to trick me up on their exams.

I'm about one advisor appointment away from giving the Kelley School of business the middle finger and switching over to SPEA....

Facebook was down for about two hours today....I was devistated and began to go through withdrawl. I even experienced the shakes until I drank a glass of water with an Ibeprofeun.

I'm not very happy with the fact that I had pretty hefty projects due in almost all my classes in a week span. I have a theory that all Professors get together and plan this, simply because they enjoy seeing how we perform under pressure.

It's not neccesarily a bad thing, because judging how someone does when they have the gun against their head can tell you a lot about a person. Afterall, this is what we're going to be doing the real world in a few short years.

So while I may bitch and complain at the time when I realize I won't be going to sleep that particular night because my workload is too much, I'll make a greater effort to put the whole situation into perspective and realize that our teachers are just building us up for future sucess....no matter who diabolical they appear at the time.

I lifted weights the other day. Because it was that Spring Break (aka: get in shape for a week) time of the year, I decided to lift a little extra hard; push myself that little extra mile.

And, as what usually happens after such a strenuous work out, I was very sore today. That got my wondering...why does my body have to hurt? I just lifted weights. If anything, my body should be thanking me for what I just put it through, and in the long run it does...but there's always that day where you can't lift your arms above your head and your legs hurt too badly to walk to class. It's ironic, actually.

Oh well...just a simple observation.

My group has opted to focus on video games and their effects on culture through the generations. My portion of the project, is to investigate the future of video games. While I was researching this topic I came to the realization that the future of our learning could potentially be completely interactive, eliminating the need for books.

I believe this because of the creation of "The CAVE" (Cave Automatic Virtual Enviornment). This invention is basically a booth that a user can enter an interact with projections on the walls surrounding him/her. The CAVE is expected to be used for educational purposes such as analyzing the composition of a molecule or the insides of a brain. This would prove to be a very helpful tool for students to get "hands on experience" in a simulated enviornment before being thrown into the real world, where the stakes are much higher.
