Good times, bad times - Fun With Radiation
Good times, bad times
Spring break is over.  Classes begin again...what fun.  I actually got to get some drawing done while I was at my mom's house...just a sketch of my fursona in a miner's getup, but it felt good to draw!  School takes up too much time...

Visiting family can only be described as interesting.  I took my mom out to brunch on Easter Sunday at the Fairmont in San Jose--damn good eating.  After the food had settled, I thought I'd go for a run in my "bunny hat" around the neighbourhood.  My mom thought it was great; all the people on the street thought I was more than a little disturbed.  I then went to visit my father.  On Monday, he and I got into it as usual--we have a history of this kind of stuff--like the Arab-Israeli conflict, peace one day and trouble the next. 

Oh, yeah.  My roommate got a new rifle.  It's a Browning (semi) automatic rifle (BAR), with a scope for him to hunt with.  Semi-auto for hunting?!  WTF???  Talk about overkill.   I DO NOT agree with hunting--I have trouble with the idea of taking the life of anything, let alone something that doesn't know it is being stalked from a great distance away, and just for the "thrill of it."  Yes, many hunters eat the meat, but they don't need it to survive.  It all seems pointless. 

And the best news of all: my oldest brother is coming home from Iraq around April 15!!!  He recently got promoted to staff sergeant, so he's  doing well (except for the fact he's in a war).  Staff Sgt. A.J. Schumer...has a nice ring to it.  I can't wait to go to Sacramento to visit him, see my nieces, take him for real ice cream at Leatherby's etc.

Hehe I would've loved to see you in your bunny ears! :D

That's great that your brother is slated to come home soon. Give him a big hug for me, and tell him how grateful you are for what the troops are doing out there in Iraq.

I've never been big on hunting myself. I do own a rifle, yes (semi-automatic at that), but I only use it for home-defense and target shooting. Really, all semi-automatic means is that it can only fire one shot at a time, but it reloads itself when you fire. That way, you don't have to re-cock it or insert a new round into the action each time you want to shoot. So yes, you could fire off a bunch of rounds pretty quickly, but you still need a separate trigger pull for each shot.

Post pics of your drawings, buddy! I want to keep up with your work. ;)

I didn't know you shoot--that's cool! I do as well; I just don't like the idea of hunting with a semi-auto rifle (I shoot a WWII bolt-action). I posted a pic of the drawing; I'm gonna get a FurAffinity account soon.
