Fighting meh fires

Posted 24 April 2007 in homework and schedule

Do you remember playing Command and Conquer? Or perhaps Starcraft or Warcraft? Remember when you would be sending your crew to destroy orcs at one of the other bases when you'd suddenly realize one of the other players was in your base killing your mans? You'd be forced to manage a decisive assault and muster an effective defense, but in the end you'd lose most of the military you'd worked so hard to marshal, and you'd quit playing for like a month before seeing your little brother playing it and get jealous because I spent like $20 of my money and there's no way Stephan's going to beat the game before I do.

Right now I've multiple projects on my plate, and it seems like I'm scrolling furiously to fight little fires on several fronts. It's a party-and-a-half! Now if you'll excuse me, Spanish homework is in my base and it's killing my mans.
