Root 3

I fear that I will always be
A lonely number like root three
A three is all that's good and right
Why must my three keep out of sight
Beneath a vicious square-root sign?
I wish instead I were a nine
For nine could thwart this evil trick
With just some quick arithmetic
I know I'll never see the sun
As 1.7321

Such is my reality
A sad irrationality
When, hark, just what is this I see?
Another square root of a three
Has quietly come waltzing by
Together now we multiply
To form a number we prefer
Rejoicing as an integer

We break free from our mortal bonds
And with a wave of magic wands
Our square-root signs become unglued
And love for me had been renewed

Some Random Pics

QR 1
QR 2
Hey hey! Just a quick post with some random photos I have to showcase.

As you can see, the above two are QR codes. If you have a QR code reader, I'd suggest give them a go ;) Hopefully, you'll be satisfied with one and annoyed by the other (provided the codes work!) :P

The next photo is one of Facebook's tagging fails. I was uploading some photos to Facebook, and a big group of pictures of my friend Roy came up for me to tag. However, if you look close enough, you'll see that one of those 9 is a little different. One of them is me! I've learnt that Me + Glasses = Roy. Facebook says so!

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8... 8 Roys and a Kieran

Violating Lucario Is Never A Good Idea
Suicune, I Choose You!
Here are two screenshots from Super Smash Bros. Brawl that I got a few years ago. Lucario is my favourite character to play as, by the way. In the first, you'll see that Lucario is being violated by Marth, from Fire Emblem. What I love about this photo is Lucario's face... because I'm sure that the game isn't programmed to make characters look shocked when they're being molested.

In the photo underneath, you'll see Lucario summoning a Suicune. I was delighted to get this photo because if it was any other Pokémon, it probably wouldn't be as classy. Could you imagine if Lucario summoned a Goldeen?!

So there you go, sweet and short! Talk soon!

Summertime Plans

Between studying, exams and gaming, I try to plan what I'll do for the summer. For most of the year, I had one plan in mind; my ideal summer is me working in Dublin with a financial services firm. But over the last few weeks, hopes of that are fading away so I must find new ways to fill my empty summer.

I do have one definite thing this summer - my 21st. I don't know where to have it, I don't know who will come, I don't know what I'll do for it... but I'll have something. And it'll be big because I didn't celebrate my birthday last year with my friends and family in Ireland.

I also have something else... TICKETS TO KE$HA :D Brian and I bought tickets to see Ke$ha live in The Marquee in Cork. That's on July 3rd so I can't wait for that :D However, if between now and then, I get a job in Dublin, I probably won't be able to go to the concert :( But either way, I'm going to enjoy July 3rd. As for the rest of summer??

In primary school, I started collecting Yu-gi-oh! cards. Over the years, I collected a couple of hundred. Possibly a few thousand if I was to actually count them. Over the last few summers, I've been threatening to sort them and sell them. They're in really good condition and I have some rare and powerful ones too. I have no use for them anymore and they're just sitting there doing nothing when they could be bringing some little Yu-gi-oh! fan some joy. So hopefully, I'll finally get onto that this summer and hopefully I can sell them through my blog :D Wouldn't that be awesome?! :D

I also would like to get started on a new project if possible... A cross-stitch picture. I made one for my Junior Cert and it was so much fun to do, so simple to make. When I have further updates on this, I'll post about it. Maybe some photos and such :P

The next thing I'd like to do is learn piano!! I've been wanting to do this for YEARS but never forced myself to put the time into it. The summer days would be perfect for it. I'm gonna try learn on my own and see how far I get and then, get lessons when I need them later on. I have a book to learn from so at least I have a course to follow :)

As I did last year, I plan to watch LOADS of tv shows. This summer, it'll probably consist of Doctor Who, American Dad, How I Met Your Mother, Torchwood, Firefly, One Foot In The Grave and some others that I can't quite remember right now. On top of tv shows, it'd be great to complete some Xbox games as well. I do wish we had a PS3, for many reasons, but I shouldn't complain seeing as we got the Xbox for free :D My mom won it in a competition a few years back. It was a joyous occasion ^_^

Back to the topic at hand... summer plans :) There are two other things I'd like to start this summer. One of them is game programming. I'm currently doing a module in C programming and I've heard it's a great start for someone who wants to program games. I would like to look into this more and see what I could get into. Who knows? It could be my calling :D The other out-of-character thing I'd like to get into is story writing. I'm not sure exactly what kind of stories...something magic-based... or sci-fi...or whatever. Something I could build on. Right now, I have no ideas but once my exams are over I can get started on something... maybe.. We'll see. One step at a time :)

I think I've covered most of what I hope to do over summer. Have you made any plans for summer? If not, I'd suggest thinking of a few things because the holidays are creeping up slowly.

But, not everyone needs plans so don't let me dictate what you should do. After all, who am I but a random voice on the internet.
