Stomach Bug?

I really should have just slept the whole day away. As soon as I popped some breakfast in my mouth this morning, SURPRISE! Stomach ache. I think I might have a stomach bug. Well, I'm not going to let this ruin my day... I have a whole day off!

Last week my Forensic Psychology teacher told the class that he was going to a meeting of some sort next class, so I have no class today! I have homework due Thursday for Math and Human Communication, but that can always be finished later.
Jon is playing Mass Effect at the moment. Judging by what's going on, he's apparently completing some epic mission at the end of the game. He got Mass Effect 2 in the mail yesterday as a birthday present from his parents. His mom also included lots of candy for both Jon and me... how sweet! (No pun intended.) His mom is one of the nicest people I've ever met.
I can tell Jon is just itching to play Mass Effect 2 though, haha. When he's done, he's going to replay Bioshock and then play Bioshock 2. Then I'll buy Bioshock 2 for my PC, and we can both enjoy the world of Rapture at the same time! I still have to finish the Knights of the Nine and Shivering Isles in Oblivion though. I also have to beat Overlord, which I have left unfinished for nearly three months...
I've really begun to value my money more, and it's been my new rule to finish every game I buy, no matter how boring or tedious it may be. If I paid money for it, I might as well get everything I can out of the game.
In terms of survey revenue, I think I recently broke the $100 mark! That means I'm making about $33 each month from doing surveys... not bad for an unemployed college student.

Well, I'll end this somewhat uneventful blog entry with an interesting and heroic news article.
Yahoo! News: Teacher tackles gunman suspected in school shooting
What an incredible, selfless act in the face of danger. Stories like this renew my faith in humankind, heh.
