Re: So, Any Of You Play The Guitar?

I do play guitar. I haven't messed around with alternate tunings that much though, but I've enjoyed the few experiences I've had. My main guitar is an Epiphone Masterbilt 500R, but I've been going back to electric this break with my Fender Strat. http://www.firstqualitymusic.com/images/product/2866/...

Re: Depressing SAT scores

Colleges will look at your GPA and the fact that you didn't start learning English until age 9 (though that doesn't help with your math scores). SAT scores are far from the most important thing, especially more so in your specific case.

I typically only used magic for healing and the occasional buff in a boss battle, while spamming the attack button the rest of the time. Oblivion, same...
