New Site Look

Changed things around a bit to make the site more functional, and I know I said I would post last week and I didn’t so I’ll recap.
Monday: 360 Actually comes in. Now I can play Halo! Finally.

Tuesday: More 360 stuff

Wednesday: Half-Day, My shirt comes in.

Thursday: More of the same

Friday: Blah.

Saturday: I go and see The Comebacks, I thought it was funny but some people hate it. I guess it’s just one of those movies..

Sunday: I played Soccer, my team won 5-3..

Today: I stayed home from school. Cleaned some stuff..

Other than that I can play on Xbox Live, so go ahead and add me, just mention that you read my blog. Also, if anyone plays Company of Heroes, post a comment with your nick, I’ll be sure to add you.

Thursday-Friday I’ll be in Boston, so no blog either of those days.
I’ll see if I can post on Wednesday before I leave..

Box is in(Out) Sorry, No pics.

Box arrived on Wednesday and Shipped out Thursday Afternoon.
I put it in a stack with 20 other broken 360s heading out to Microsoft. The guy says he gets at least twenty a week. Just one store in a pretty small town. Well, at least other people get to suffer with me.

I’ll probably get it later in the month. Hopefully before Call of Duty 4 releases. However, that means I don’t get to play Halo that much because I’ll be playing Call of Duty. Ugh. I’m not as worried about Guitar Hero III, I’m getting that later in the year(Along with my new Nano I hope.)

Schools going a little better now, I still can’t stand to sit through “Exploring Music” for 40 minutes every other day, but my Math grades are improving.

Also, I can’t believe the Yankees lost because some bugs. At least we’re still better than the Mets 😛
Not like the Jets or Islanders are gonna do much better. Meh.
