I'm lucky. I'm in homeschool :D Which means I get to spend almost all of my free time here at my home on the net, Tomb Raider Forums. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

ughh, i start school in a month and 8 days... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yuck.gif I don't want to go back to school. I don't miss it,which doesn't amtter cause I'm going to a new school, but it's worse than my old one. And I definately don't miss any friends. During the school year last year I lost my friendship to someof them, and on the last day my best friend didn't talk to me. None of them even said bye to me so I wasn't goign to bother. Now I'm friendless. Heck I have more friends out where I used to live and I only see them twice a year! :(

Good evening http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

Celli, Deano have you seen the radar? :eek: It's like The Perfect Storm brewing up. I hope my weather kami is on full alert tonight ;)

Kaminari
01-08-03, 21:34
School can be a harsh environment. My first high school years were excellent, but the last ones were really draining.

Lara13, you'll soon find that the business world is not necessarily better than the education world as far as social relations are concerned http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/privateeye.gif

Oh Celli, don't you want to see your friends again??? http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif I want to see them us, well those who are left. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif Half of my friends graduated this year... :( My Meahgan is gone. :(

But then, it's back into the stresses of being Chairman of countless things for Student Council, President of EAG, and then there's still SLO, SHINE, SADD, and Key Club to focus on at school. And then, there's still FIM and GFYL to worry about later...........

Did I mention that on top of all of this I have 3 AP classes to study for? Fun fun....

Apparently Bella, it's 10 straight days of rain. :( And it really downpoured today....just as I was getting ready to leave work too :mad: lol

http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif Good evening Celli,
I'm glad to see you made it home safely. Driving in a downpour is stomache twisting

Celli
01-08-03, 22:16
Driving in a downpour, in downtown Flint....now that's dangerous driving. :eek: I think Flint ranks up there with Detroit for worst drivers.....

Isabella
01-08-03, 22:22
Thank god for windshield wipers. I just had mine replaced and I think the mechanic added a turbo speed somehow. When they are set at the highest they feel as though they are going to fly off the car.

Celli
01-08-03, 22:26
I hate that setting on wipers, but when you're in Michigan I guess it's necessary. ;)

Isabella
01-08-03, 22:31
They make me feel very adgitated at that speed. :eek:

Celli
01-08-03, 22:34
I don't care how hard it's raining, I won't set the wipers on the highest setting. I does make you kind of nervous doesn't it?

Fugitive Lara

Celli
01-08-03, 22:42
(wow my laugh is loud! :eek: )

You crack me up Bella! I can just see you jumping at anything after having the wipers like that. :D ;)

OMG! OMG! What is that?!?!

Calm down Bella.....it's carpet... ;)

Kaminari
01-08-03, 22:44
As much as I like rain, it's quite scary to drive on the highway with nearly no visibility and the wipers set to the highest speed (with usually poor results).

Kaminari, I am gald you understand. That high setting just makes the rain more angry as it falls in the window.

I know two people that are noww homeschooled and they both said they like it better. I think it would be better than regular school cause it would be as distracting.

I don't know! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

I can't decide if I'm hungry or not. lol I think I'm hungry, but then again I'm not quite sure. ;)

We're gonna need something stronger, Bella http://moix.free.fr/smileys/manges_bois/kimouss.gif

I couldn't help but have a look at the AOD section... I know, it's bad for us. If only Eidos would come up with a demo of the game, because I really don't feel in a hurry to give it a try for the time being :rolleyes:

Isabella
01-08-03, 23:35
I don't have it yet either. But that's ok. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

01-08-03, 23:36
It's pretty good, you should get it Bella. ;) http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

Yeah, that's what Dave Bowman said before entering the stargate Monolith ;)

"Oh my God... It's full of bugs!"

Isabella
01-08-03, 23:53
Here it comes Celli http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yikes.gif
Time to batten down the hatches ;)

Geck-o-Lizard
01-08-03, 23:54
You could, if you were bored, play through it thoroughly and count the bugs. I hear that there are over 50. :rolleyes: My computer's too slow. But of course, I've said that so many times by now that you know that.

Kaminari
02-08-03, 00:01
Good evening Gecko http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

I'm used to bugs -- who would not? ;) It's just that the obvious lack of betatesting for a game that has been in the works for three years really pulls me back. We may have to wonder if it was actually the same development team as TR3/4/5 (led by Richard Morton).

Kaminari
02-08-03, 00:07
Uh-oh, looks like the Michiganders fled for their lives and locked themselves into their vault! :eek:

No, North of Kalamazoo is all clear :cool:

Isabella
02-08-03, 00:34
so your area is out of the watch range. The system seems to be hovering over Kalamazoo and B.C.

Celli
02-08-03, 00:39
Great....more rain. And our 50th Family Reunion is tomorrow.
