I have cable internet, but I haven't had cable/satellite TV for 6 years now. I do subscribe to Netflix and use HBO GO through my brother's account. Also, I have Amazon Prime. All of that, plus watching free shows online (Daily Show) keep me entertained.

Is there any particular reason that the mouse doesn't disappear when the video is full screen? It's something I've always noticed about the video player and it seems like it should be a "feature".

I really don't get the hate this guy is getting. What he's doing is fucking cool. Who cares what he said about how he "discovered" it. He shoots 3 arrows in a second, that's fucking cool. He's an extraordinary archer, trick shooter or not. And his speed shooting seems like it would be super useful in battle situations.

I think the one bit of advice I can give you is to be open. Unless you're absolutely sure of a field you want to go in, or you specialize (medical school, law school), be open to anything. Just because you studied journalism, doesn't mean you'll end up as a journalist. Explore all your opportunities and take as many jobs as you can.

Mistborn and The Stormlight series are pretty amazing. He really does a fantastic job of drawing you into his really fleshed out worlds. And he isn't afraid to lay on the detail. One of my favorites for sure.

Also, Osaladin, Kaladin... huh? HUH? ok.

The Man from Earth - 5/5

From imdb - "An impromptu goodbye party for Professor John Oldman becomes a mysterious interrogation after the retiring scholar reveals to his colleagues he never ages and has walked the earth for 14,000 years."

I checked this out on Netflix because I had nothing else to watch, and was extremely pleasantly surprised by this movie. It all takes place in a living room where all these professors are trying to debunk him, and the ending is pretty great too.

I have a Lenovo laptop that I use exclusively for work. I use it everyday for most of the day, and it's been running fine for 2 years now. Also, I bought it for 500 bucks. Macbooks are nice, but I rarely think their price is worth it.
