The end of the semester is drawing near, and with it: Graduation!
That’s right, I’m finally done with school. OK… almost done with school. You see, I dropped my Artificial Intelligence class this semester. It was just too much work for me too handle, and it wasn’t nearly as cool as I thought it was going to be. So, I have to take 1 summer school class to compensate. Therefore, I will be officially graduating in August. I guess the only bad thing about being done with school is that I won’t get to take weird picture on campus like this:Click here to leave a comment
The SWAT Analysis is a new set of online videos featuring writing and acting by Jared Nielson (my brother-in-law and the same guy who did the Ninjormon). This first one brings some humor to tax day. Check it out, and share it with your friends.

What would an average day in the life of Mario be like? We know he does a lot of collecting coins and jumping and running about, but what else falls into his daily routine? I made this video almost two years ago, but it is still funny to me. I realized that I had’t even posted my own video on my own blog. So here it is in all of its glory: An Average Day With Mario
Thank goodness for Super Mario!
The Mario in me was able to rescue Princess Penny, and ever since then she’s stayed by my side. We made this movie before we even started dating, but we were hanging out so much around that time that this movie helped us to segue into a beautiful relationship that led into our engagement and marriage. Thanks to Erica Faler for suggesting the idea. Thanks to Steve Cox, Derek Sloan, Shaila Pew, Brian Nielson and Jensen Clifford for guest starring. Thanks to Stephen Moyer for filming. Thanks to Steve Cox for letting me use his video editing equipment and giving me some pointers. Thanks to Ted Sowards for producing the video with the others (like the Ninjormon) for YouTube. Thanks to my wonderful wife who is even sillier than me sometimes. Hooray for Super Mario and Nintendo.Click here to leave a comment

My new favorite thing to do on Facebook is to have discussions on my wall via the comments. I propose a question or thought as part of my status update, and then everyone else supplies their opinions by leaving a comment on my status. It’s fun. This past week I asked about Gmail and web browsers. I took a screen shot of both discussions. Read through and feel free to comment here if you didn’t get a chance to on Facebook.
I have been using Gmail since 2004 (the year it started) and I have always felt that it has been way ahead of the competition in terms of features, usability, and speed. However, I also have a Yahoo, Hotmail, Live Mail, and a few other accounts. I use these all for specific things (like handling spam). Gmail has always just worked well for me. It has features that I can’t live without anymore like labels (better than folders), search, filters, chat, labs, themes, todo list, etc. You can read more about Gmail on their blog. Let’s see what everyone else said.
At the end of December, Penny and I took a trip to Disneyland and California Adventure for our first anniversary. It was a total blast. As we were waiting at the airport on the day of our anniversary, I was thinking about how much I loved her and was thankful for her. A few words gathered in my mind, and I wrote a brief poem for her:
It’s been a whole year, my dear,
But when I kiss your lips,
I still feel the fire singing like a choir
For more coal, and then I know…
That I will long for you until I die.
And though I’m not the greatest husband, I will try
Until you see
That I’m yours forever.
