I just wanted to let everyone know that I'll be gone for the next two weeks...

Why? I'm severing myself (almost completely) from the Internet so that I can try and focus on doing well on my finals...

This is something new I'm trying to see if it makes a difference.

See you in two weeks!

Good luck on your finals, Kyle!

Liam and I will both be away from the 8th through the 18th for our wedding and honeymoon! The big day is almost here Laughing out loud We still haven't decided where we're going for a honeymoon (no money = camping).

But don't worry, the rest of the mods will be on duty so no funny stuff Wink

Good luck! Would you like us to ban you for a couple of weeks to remove temptation? Wink

Not quite the 14th, but I'm back... [guess I didn't need the ban anyways... I didn't even check the site as a guest...]

Sadly to say, it didn't do much for my grades.... I'm pretty sure I only passed one class (of 4)... one of them I missed the final (aka failed) because I went to the wrong time...

So, this probably won't happen again.

Hooray for repeating classes, and wasting large amounts of money! /not

Dont be hard on your self, I experienced the same thing only in a different situation, I argued with the Prof about a wrong lecture he gave and since that time he gave me the hardest time in college. He also got promoted as our department head and that was the worst day of my school life... But it challenged me to study a whole lot more...

Sad to hear you didn't do well Kyle, I did exactly the same thing on a computer science exam: got the day wrong! Was talking to people in my class about it too: 'Hey John, ready for that exam tomorrow?' They never corrected me. So these things happen and it's not just you, also college isn't the be-all and end-all. Smiling

Funnily that's exactly what you should do if you meet a bear, make yourself look big (they have bad eyesight, which helps). We met two bears while camping. We were just coming back from walking on a trail, at around 9pm, heard what sounded like someone rummaging through a bin. There was a small shed, where garbage is kept, seems someone forgot to lock the doors because there were two bears having a good search through the rubbish! Smiling

We just edged around closer to the car, keeping close together, one of the bears ran off whilst the other stood staring at us. I got a few photos, but not until we were safely near the car (so they didn't turn out very well)! Smiling Overall: bears are quite cool animals, just got to be careful to not feed them (a bear thinking human == food is not good, usually ends up with the bear being shot too Sad ).

I must admit that I actually got into the car and locked the door while JeevesBond stood outside and took the photos. They're still on the camera - will post when I get a chance.

Hah! I didn't know that, lucky one of them didn't charge me then! Although to be honest, I would have been in the car too, bricking it, had they been aggressive. Smiling
