I made it my goal to pay off all my student loans by the end of the year. That way I can get a house and be student loan free in about 2 years.
The interest rates on student loans are INSANE. I’ve been paying mine since August 2010 and I think I only knocked them down about $2,000. Naturally they want to keep collecting all that interest. It all seems like a scam, but that’s how capitalism works I guess.
So last month I dropped a ridiculous amount on one of my student loans. Since they don’t want me paying it off so fast they extended my payment due date to June 9, 2013! 2013! Almost a year and a half from now! Just so that they can charge me more interest.
Well now you won’t get any more interest from me you jerks. ‘Cause this bitch is getting paid ASAP.
1. You do things that you absolutely do not want to do without putting up a fight. I think that’s called being responsible.
2. You start off conversations by talking about the weather.
3. You have trouble understanding how to play certain video games. I couldn’t figure out League of Legends for the life of me.
4. You start getting gray hair by your temples. I’ve plucked two in the past week.
NECA’s 1:1 Portal replica gun went on pre-order in Japan recently and now it’s available for pre-order in the US. The gun is $139.99, which honestly isn’t bad for a full sized replica of this quality. I might seriously consider getting one. If I do, you’ll see it first on IHC. This thing is seriously fucking awesome.
We use two monitors at the office - it just makes working a lot easier. So for a while I’ve been wanting to get a second monitor for my desktop at home. The one on my Amazon wishlist went on sale and I had gift cards from Christmas so I spent $75.00 on a 23” Samsung LED. Not bad! But it could have been better.
I told my boss about my purchase. “Why didn’t you just order it through the company?” THAT WAS AN OPTION?! Apparently so. Next time I want fancy electronics, I’ll just ask my boss.
He did give me a brand new 2 TB My Book because our IT guy order one too many.
It is being reported that Google is working on special display glasses which will augment reality and stream information to the user’s eyes in real time.
Google plans to sell these glasses to the public at the end of the year.
More on these nifty futuristic specs after the break.
Ladies and gentlemen! I give you THE FUTURE.
There are no signs of a struggle, so I’m leaning towards alien abduction.
- Me: I want one of those pillows.
- My Mom: They have them at Bed, Bath and Beyond.
- Me: They have a website, right?
