My older brother was going to move out to Victoria (B.C.) at the end of the month. But I learned last night that he is going to move back home instead! I am super excite!

I...I...

I think I just landed my dream job.

I think I may have just gotten well on the road to running campaign teams and forming policy.

I am going to be so goddamn busy, even more than I have been. Goodbye fora, I leave you for better things.

I doubt it's possible for such a structure to be truly air-tight, just by virtue of the cement walls and stuff. unless everything's lined with rubber. But it's zombie-proof, not nerve gas-proof.

Well, yea, I doubt it would be fully air-tight, but I'm just saying the amount of oxygen used up by the people inside might outweigh the amount let in by the tiny nooks and crannies in the seams of movable walls. I mean, hell, just sitting under a heavy blanket for a few minutes it gets difficult to breath and uncomfortable. But I might be overestimating the fit of those movable walls.

Vents are vulnerabilities.

In other news, I went clothes shopping today. Not a XL in sight! I bought seven shirts: four larges and... THREE MEDIUMS!!!

I'm kind of worried about the mediums, though, because all three of them are cotton and none of them say they've been prewashed.

Schmmmeeeediums! Noooooooooooooooooo! I pretty much only wear XL, but that's normal out here: most of the kids these days wear 2-4XL shirts to school and 4-5xl crap to go skiing in. This one kid I coach does dryland with what amounts to a dress.



ALSO: Co-choreographing a ridiculous parkour routine and we did a dry run of the whole thing today and it is amazing and also awesome.

Awesome: I'm about to fly home to visit the family in Pennsylvania. This is awesome enough in and of itself, but the awesometude increases: my girlfriend of six years is coming with me to meet my people for the first time. My parents already like her from phone conversations, and she's girded her metaphorical loins to deal with my grandmother, so this weekend is going to be awesome.

This house is on Bones, or one that looks damn near identical to it. I was kinda stoked to see it the same day I read about it on here.

Edit: I'm not sure, because they pretty much didn't show any of the house at all - I thought they would use it's sealing thing as a part of the show, but they just walked through the patio and the first floor without actually showing the exterior of the house. It looked incredibly close to whats in that article, though.

I'm sure a lot of people here have topped it, but I found out yesterday that I received a 29 on my ACT. That's well above the average of my two prospective schools, and for my first time, seems to me to be a-ok.
