How Did This Happen?

I have officially become a video game geek. I mean yes, I have always loved RPGs (Role-playing Games, for the non-geekoids out there). But then I bought Dragon Age: Origins. I have been playing it pretty much non-stop! I can't freaking get enough of it!! I think I am on my third play through and I still haven't found all there is to find and do!!!!!!

My new friends are now the virtual ones that my character(s) have in the game. I found myself talking out loud to them yesterday. "Alistair dear, could you please make this giant spider stop eating my face. Okay, thanks."

This maybe a sign of something... but I don't know what.

But I really didn't notice that my geekdom was getting out of hand until this morning. Boyfriend is playing games on the XBOX and I can not play! It is hell! I want him to go study, not for the good of his grades but so that I can get on the freaking XBOX! I am jonesing to play! It is like crack man. I have to play it.

So since he refuses to go study, even though I have pointed out to him that his grade could be suffering, I decided to read up on Dragon Age. Yes, that is correct. I LOOKED UP DRAGON AGE! I found the Dragon Age Wiki and now I know all the things I missed and that makes me want the XBOX that much freaking more!!

To make matters worse. I "liked" Dragon Age on my personal Facebook page and now it sends me cool things! Today it sent me Sunday comics that are video game related. I laughed. A lot. I actually got the geeky video game references. Just to show you how geeky I am - here is the comic that I actually laughed out loud to for about 3 minutes.

So yeah. I admit it. I am now a "gamer". Dragon Age 2 already has a release date. I was very disappointed to learn it wasn't until 2011. Damn it!!

I Need a New Title!

I am all registered to start Blinn on Aug. 30th. I am scared to freaking death! FREAK OUT!!!

Now that is over and done with here are my classes. (WARNING: there may be another freak out after I list them. Prepare yourself!)

On Mondays and Wednesdays I will be taking History of Western Civilizations and FINITE MATH.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays I will be taking ORGANIC CHEMISTRY (freak-out pending) and Criminal Investigations.

I am not a math person. One of my besties, C, will be very angry if she reads this. I know C. I know. It is not a genetic malfunction. Math is just math.

I am telling you people. I am SERIOUSLY not a math person. I hate math. It scares me and hurts my girly brain.  I have no clue what finite math even means. "Finite" -  makes it sound that much more ominous.

PhotobucketOrganic Chemistry - that is just scary. Everyone think of things that are organic. Seems okay right. I mean chocolate is organic. MMMM. Theobromine is the active ingredient in chocolate. But look! Does that look tasty at all? I mean all the bonds and double bonds and the hydrophobic methyl groups. I mean really - doesn't that just take the magic out of chocolate for you? Carbon rings (and no ladies, even though diamonds are made out of carbon - these rings have no bling unless you count dangles of functional groups as snazzy adornments)

So yeah. I am freaking out a little bit. I am really excited about my Criminal Investigations class. I am hoping it will be fun enough to balance out the boredom of Western Civ and the AAAHHHHHH! moments from Math and Organic Chem.

I do have a point to all of this. I know you are waiting on pins and needles!

As of Aug. 30th I will no longer be a part-time house monkey. I will be a full time college student. Should I change the name of the blog? If I do what should I change it to? School Monkey doesn't have the same charm.

Give me your opinions oh wise ones of the interweb. What do you think??

Old Spice Meets New Spice.
