Sorry it's been so long. I've been kinda busy with college. I managed to acquire my dad's soldering iron and finally found a de-soldering tool. It seems kinda cheaply made, but it'll work. I have also secured both scholarships. One's only half of what I thought it was, but it's okay. It's still free money. I think my picture is gonna be in the paper for winning it, too.
And now for some old news. Two Mondays ago I went rafting with my dad. The water level was pretty low, so we couldn't go everywhere we intended to go, but we had lots of fun and lots of sun, too. Anyway, rather than bore you with all the details like I did to those poor people on RvB, I'll just give you the highlights. Among the --hang on. My mom's home on her lunch break and she wants me to go put gas in her car. I'll be back.
Okay, where was I? Right. Among the creatures we saw on the trip were a couple otters, blue herons, fish we believe were rainbow trout, a pantload of dragonflies, turtles, and little green frogs. We couldn't get to Eagle Pond though, because, like I said the water level was pretty low. Us being in a blow-up raft, it would not have been wise to try to maneuver through all the sticks and things that were sticking up out of the water.
I saw Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children three days ago and as I said on RvB wow, oh my gosh, and holy dang. It was visually brilliant. Brilliant, I tell you! I'll not include any spoilers unless requested, in case some of you haven't seen it and want to. I'd highly recommend it, especially if you're a FF7 fan to begin with, or even just a FF fan in general. I know a guy that has never played FF7 and he loved the movie. Granted he's a pretty hard-core gamer, but that really makes no nevermind to me. Anyone who loves games or well-done digital cinema should really be ready to go see this movie when it's released in the US. That's all for now. I think I've run out of foreign goodbyes. I won't be using French, just for your information. I haven't forgotten it, I just don't like the French. Nevermind. I just got on a translation site and put in "Goodbye" for Russian. Here it is. До свидания.
