So I got a compliment about the design of my blog and decided to post a little bit about that today. Thanks rancour!

As you might have been able to figure out from my last post, I am a Computer Science major. BUT, I originally wanted to go to school for graphic design. I went with CS over GD mainly because I figured a CS degree would get me a job a hell of a lot easier than GD. Good thing I really enjoy programming because working with the adobe suite is ridiculously fun.


I created this about three years ago because I am a fan of snowboarding and it was an assignment for a class. The great thing about Photoshop is that this can be done in literally 2 minutes. So anyways, if you don't like the design of my blog, let me know how to change it. Also, refer me to sweet graphic design websites. The best ideas come from other people!

What is while ( tru ) { }

So you might be asking yourself what the hell my title actually means. Well, if you have not been exposed to any computer programming at all, then your question is completely relevant.

So to try to explain it very simply.....

It's an infinite loop. It will never stop looping. Don't worry about what is being looped through, because nothing is. Basically, once you are inside, you are never coming out. You can think about it as just some code or you can think about it another way. Since technically it the programming language it is probably TRUE, instead of TRU, it almost makes sense to think of it another way.

I like to think of it as how to treat life. If you treat life with the utmost respect, I do believe that's what you will get out of it. I have always believed that if you do good, good will come to you. Once that chain of good things has started, it won't stop. It will continue to happen for the rest of your life. I live by this and would say I have been pretty successful with it.

So.....this is my first post on my first ever blog, WOO!!

And so now is the big question.....WHAT DO I DO??

What is this blog thing that I am writing to? Am I writing TO it or ON it? What should I talk about? Is it considered talking about it or writing about it? Why do I keep asking myself questions?

Well here we go, I have something to talk/write about......Linkin Park. What a great band....every album. They just recently released their newest album titled "A Thousand Suns." This is one of those bands where I could listen to every song on every album and not once say: "WOW, SKIP!" This is the cover art:

That isn't the only thing I like about them. They have a lot of so-called fans that don't like this new album. These fans say this isn't the "real" Linkin Park. But honestly, what band wants to hear their own music, the same way, year after year? I wouldn't want to. What I love about this is that Linkin Park specifically said that a lot of people won't like this album but that didn't really matter. Why? They've had their success, they have a solid fan-base, they are just wanting to make music they want to make. I hope Linkin Park never dies.
