Spent a solid 15 minutes encasing the mortar shell rounds in Electrode……slow mo video yielded 5 seconds. The blast was deafening, which was cool. Would do again.

Of Stark and Snow

Though both are remembered fondly, I feel like Jons death is glanced over too quickly. Honestly if GRRM decided to let Jon stay dead I would just be impressed and not at all mad I expected more.


Tyrion tries to warn Jon he know’s nothing. Broody Jon Snow ignores Tyrion’s ominous warning, acting like a spoiled brat unhappy with his surname. (Not everyone gets 2 names you dolt!) Tyrion, realizing Jon is a teen caught up in himself, hammers the point home. Own the bastard name or die BASTARD! This is AGOT

Now Jon the LC starts leading, progressing and growing up. Bastardy set aside at the wall, Jon still lets ‘Snow’ bother him. Can’t be too happy or people might forget you carry a chip on your shoulder……Because he wasn’t as highborn as he wanted. Never mind Samwell Tarly and the joys of being heir to a powerful lord he has experienced. He leads men of low birth, men that would kill for a chance at being highborn. Men that have struggled with the harsh realities of not being brought up by nobles in a castle.


But nooooo, he feels entitled to more than life gave him. Not enough to accept legitimization from Stannis, but enough to take his LC position for granted and abandon the NW………because he uh idk read the letter too fast? That and his identity problems are, in his mind, people identifying him.

It may be my own temper/anger issues growing up that make me hard on him for being so headstrong. It may be my lack of noble birth that finds his hang up a solid #FirstWorldProblem at best.

It may be my respect for Robb, accepting ownership of his misfortunate actions and his Stark honor despite having so many options to give himself a mulligan.

Robb, carrying the lessons of Dad and the burden of Mom, stiffs Frey because Jon acted like being a bastard is worse than greyscale dwarfism and the pale mare combined. Jon fucking Targaryen killed Robb with his ‘everyone feel bad for me’ attitude. Jon can stay dead. No one need be sacrificed so he can get another shot to grow up. Long rant short I hate Jon and I am already shaking my head at his self-righteousness when he gets it right: learning R+L, realizing he’s been too much like Joffrey and not enough like Podrick, refusing the crown to accept the position he died ignoring.

All this because I glanced over at my POP figures of Robb and Jon. At least I wrote a blog about it instead of getting myself killed by my own audience. /rant

Family

My little brother is the man. If he wasn’t so much freakin bigger than me…… Wait I’m just jealous of his big teddy bear build. I digress.

All that aside, he knows I am dying to get back to school. He also knows I get distracted and discouraged around new people/ in new environments, so he is taking classes up himself (ending a break/work semester after graduating) with me. Picked a class together and he is going to join me in 4 classes I pick. I can’t imagine a more perfect scenario for getting back to school and staying focused/ambitious.

I felt as if I was at the edge of giving up on college. Now I can get back into being a full time student with my bro to sit/work/study/learn with me. The Samwise to my Frodo, the hat on my cat, the Jaime to my Tyrion. Point being Kid is the fucking man.


I am going to get the best grades in all 5 classes. Its all I want to do, learn and win the competitions I stage in my mind without burning out before finishing. I got halfway through my EMT course with over a 90%, stand out of the class and I loved it. Let myself get too caught up in personal issues and decided to just stop going. Not hard when my classmates are…those people behind me? It doesnt even seem a relevant comparison because I was alone in that course, and now I have the perfect partner. I’m going to keep pushing towards becoming a doctor, with one less field of interest to cloud my ambitions.

Neurology. Infectious disease. Immunology. Pediatrics. Psychology. The dream is to work with MSF.

Thanks for keeping the dream alive, I love you fam.

Except not really cause I already hear the mockery in his voice. “Nice blog you teenage girl! You forgot to cry more and draw pictures of books inside little hearts you fucking nerd.”

It IS a nice blog entry. And I rock the nerd title thanks for noticing!

"Euron is the older brother…" Began the maester.
Aeron silenced him with a look. In little fishing towns and great stone keeps alike such a look from Damphair would make maids feel faint and send children shrieking to their mothers, and it was more than sufficient to quell the chain-neck thrall.

ASOIAF original theory

Came up with my first non-tinfoil theory for the series today. Started it here

http://asoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/topic/117261-what-if-brienne-kills-stannis-with-oathkeeper/page-2

So Brienne kills Stannis with Oathkeeper, per her oath she swore in front of Catelyn. With Jaime and Brienne, team misunderstood kingslayer, heading to LS, I think she may remember. Ill flesh it out when i get more clear connections but I got a good feeling about this. Jaime slaying Brienne with Lightbringer to become AA reborn? Well see

Reading and not reading

I feel like I can’t just read one book. When I make an effort to read one book, My reading habit degrades into nothing more than articles online, until I decide that I have plenty of books to enjoy. I am doing first reads on a collection/analysis of modern European philosophy, Mindsight by Dr. Daniel Siegel. Got the last two ASOIF books on reread along with Colbert’s I Am America and so can you. Goodbye TV.
