Boy, am I excited. Although it may not seem so by my writing because I'm not overusing exclamation points, nor am I writing everything in capital letters, but I'm typing this on a laptop, which I'm currently swinging over my head while jumping on my bed, listening to Britney Spears. You get the drift. I'm excited, okay?

It's because I've finally been set up for an interview with a company for an internship through the Marin County Office of Education's Regional Occupational Program, and it's the company of my choice. It's called PlanetLink, a company in neighboring Novato which offers website design and hosting. While the design for their own site is nothing to brag about, examples of their clients' sites are pretty sweet. It looks like I'll fit right in... just as long as I don't stutter during my interview. I've heightened James's self-esteem so much in the last year that I've forgotten about myself, and I've transferred the stutter from him to me. Hence, certain morons in some of my classes at school like to make a scene by banging their heads on their desks, while I'm trying to let something out in words that I could just easily type up here. Eh, but I'm going off-topic.

If the interview works out, that's what I'll be doing over the summer - getting job experience. I'll be able to see how my skills compare with actual paid workers. And in my free time (which I'll actually have), I'll be getting to those MIDIs, teaching Tiya piano, and exercising (mainly through DDR). And all this is just around the corner... right after I bomb finals, screwing up my junior year so I don't get accepted to any colleges. Fun times.

And NOW for the latest news about the Voice of Troy. Seems that idea about publicly posting my original blog about the Voice of Troy has been overblown among the Journalism class. My mix of insults and constructive criticism has been narrowed down to just insults, and although freelance work is supposedly accepted, they've almost pushed me to the point of joining the class to get any serious response from them. Just for the record, I am not joining. Joining on the basis of revolutionizing the newspaper could result in failure of my goals, and then I'll just be contributing to what I've been trying to stop.

And I'll announce it loud and clear for everyone to hear (right, like everyone at school reads my website for fun): I was WRONG in my article. I said that the Voice of Troy has been online for ONE year. I meant that I haven't been reading the online oxymoron for TWO years. Now that I've corrected my mistake, I guess I'll go along with my plans to create an alternate and better-known school news-PAPER.

Now everyone MUST agree with my ramblings, or else they'd be unpatriotic (or not American).

Well, my little opinion (2 blogs down) is being considered by the current members of the Voice of Troy, and I've decided to take Journalism next year to help out with my goals. Yay. But right now, I bring you a quick little book I put together this morning. I'll put little captions under each image if they're unreadable.

(It's a double entendre. You'll get it in a second.)

"There once was a boy." (Get it? Pop-up book? Pop-up ads?)

"He discovered the wonder of the internet."

"He surfed it all day and all night."

"One day, he came upon amazing free services."

"The free services went down the tube."

"The boy started succumbing to pop-up ads."

"He became the internet's bitch!"
