It's been a crazy crazy week for me, and I'm sorry I haven't posted. I have had a lot of random stuff happen, I've been busy, and I had some internet problems at some points. A lot of cool stuff has happened though, and its almost time for that magical time of the year...
Heck yea! I'm not even a big basketball fan, there is just so many good games its unreal! I'm pretty excited for this year, I currently have Syracuse, Conneticut, Notre Dame, and Utah State (yes Utah State) in my final four, with Notre Dame beating Uconn for the championship. I'm probably not right though, since I never do good with my brackets. What I do know is this year the Southeast region is going to be what makes or breaks your bracket. There is a lot of good teams in that region and no clear dominant team (Pitt is inconsistent and has a history for choking in the tournament). Look for Belmont (13), Utah State (12), and Old Dominon (9) all to be higher seeded teams that should pose a legitament threat.
If you read last weeks update or some of the other posts you would know that I coach elementary school wrestling. Well yesterday we had our city championships and I coached my first ever city champion! It was his first year wrestling, and he just fell in love with the sport and worked extremely hard every practice to get better. I am unbelievably proud of him, and he came up and thanked me for everything after. It really was a rewarding feeling, and I'm excited to coach again next year.
I didn't really have an opputunity to play much this past week. I managed to level my druid to 33 (was 28), and finally got him exalted with Darnassus for my nightsaber. I also did enough Alterac Valley Call to Arms to get the healing heirloom mace. That is really about all I managed to accomplish this week though sadly. I guess I also figured out that low level paladin tanks don't like speccing into Sanctuary (their uncrittable talent), luckily though I had 290 spell power and 3k mana at lvl 32, so I managed to get through it.
In other games
I don't believe I have ever talked about it on the blog, but I used to be a Halo trick jumper (search Jump Vision on youtube my gamertag was XTR3MEST). I have recently been trying to get back into it with Halo: Reach and have been jumping in that a little bit. Hopefully in the next month I'll have enough landed to release my next video. I have also been working on a Halo 3 launching video with one of my friends that should be pretty revolutionary for Halo 3 multiplayer launching, so that is pretty exciting too.
On the Blog
I got a comment! I haven't been real active on here this past week though, and I'm sorry for that. How to Heal part 2 should be out tomorrow though (expect those on Wensdays they take a while to write and get all the links for). I also have kept up a few consistent views and have a follower now so this is all great news. Hopefully soon I can develop a community here and have some quality content for everyone to discuss, look to. I think I might just need to come up with a breakthrough post that just draws a lot of attention to really pick up the views/comments, so hopefully I'll come up with one soon.
Same old same old really. I am done coaching, still in school, still looking for a job so yea its all about the same. Spring break is coming up next week though, and the senioritis bug is kicking my butt. It used to be if I didn't do an assignment it was just cause I was too lazy too. At this point I have senioritis so bad that I won't even remember its assigned so I won't do it. My grades aren't getting dragged down too bad though so everything is ok so far. I'm excited for college and classes that are more meaningful to me though.
I was too busy with schoolwork and coaching and everything to even post on the blog much do you think I had time to program much? Learning Java is still on my to do list and may have to get pushed back til later on in the year.
EDIT: I was playing on my druid earlier and won the Scarlet Crusade tabard! This was pretty exciting for me, since I'm an achievement whore and am collecting tabards (have 9 at lvl 35). Here's the picture, good luck to any other achievement hunters out there!
