1) My high school colors were the exact colors as Sideswipe and Sunstreaker from Transformers.  In graduation, the girls wore gold and the guys wore red. <- This took me four years to realize. :/

2) I have a strong interest for things that normally scare people. (Creepypasta and horror games, anyone?)

3) I really, REALLY can't stand looking at my old writings and artwork.  I could not look at them and not go "WTF is this? What was I thinking?!"

4) While watching Transformers: Age of Extinction, I actually understood what the people were saying in Chinese (Mandarin and Cantonese), which makes it funnier when the guy asked "How do you say get the f&$% out of the way in Chinese?!" because I know how (Minus the F word, of course).

5. K-Pop, once my friends introduced me to some songs and bands, I got hooked.  Now I wish I was into them earlier.

Heyo people!

Related Random Fact: Your Real Zodiac Sign

Did you guys know that around 75% of people have the incorrect zodiac sign? 

As the Earth orbits the sun, it's rotational axis precesses. This precession, or wobble is caused by the gravitational influence of the Sun and the Moon. The result is a continuous change in the orientation of the Earth's axis. It also changes the apparent position of the Sun with regards to the background stars. Since the Earth precesses about once every 25,800 years, there needs to be, and should be, a correction of one day every 78 years to those signs. Some astrologers correct for this, most don't.  

Below is a list that would help you find the constellation the Sun was in when you were born.

Astronomy Lab

This week has been pretty exciting and very busy! I started my Astronomy lab on Wednesday and it is a lot of fun so far!
I am actually going to be camping this weekend at the Sierra Nevadas for my lab and I'll be able to operate some pretty darn expensive telescopes :lookout:  Not only that, but the class is also going to go on star trails and take some pretty epic pictures of the sky. So when I get back from the Sierras, I'll upload some pictures I took while we were out there. 

To those who do not know what classes to take if youre in college, I recommend taking Astronomy and an Astronomy lab if anyone ever has the chance. I took the Astronomy class during Fall '13 a while ago and this summer I am taking the lab and it is just so interesting and SO MUCH FUN. I've learned a lot the past few days and it's kinda brutal to be honest. Not brutal as in omg you need a PHD brutal, but more so as in the class session.  So far we met three days in a row and we met for 9 hours from 3 to midnight. We do get breaks and a dinner break, but a few days of just good ol lecturing and learning can get to ya. Other than that, you meet a lot of cool people, get to hang out late at night and do the star things like sky navigation, go to the planetarium, etc. I think it's a great experience overall and you can go camping :P Who doesn't want to go camping? It's actually my first time camping as well so there is even more excitement that I am faced with. Rahahahaha. 

Well, I hope you guys have an awesome as butt week :D
