My machine is usable, but I am still working on it.

I am heading back to Arch Linux. Why?
> Fedora has too much on top of it making it resource heavy, and I don't want to spend time figuring out what to uninstall.
> Manjaro is excellent out of the box, but I find myself wanting to uninstall a bunch of things. Also, the settings menus are too numerous and too messy
> I have time to do this since I am not swamped with school projects anymore.
> I have decided to step away from music production for a while.

It is worth noting that I hate GNU/Linux, OS X, and Windows. I find it easier to tolerate Linux out of those three.

My two favourite OSs, Android and Chrome OS, are both too limited in one way or another to do everything I need.

This song is anthemic treat! If you haven't heard it, crank up your speakers, raise your fist in the air, and press play.

Both my boys love this song and sing it at various times around the house...

By the way, here's a quick guide to figuring out the whole Britain, England, U.K thing:

England < [Great] Britain < U.K.(United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland) < The British Isles

It just occurred to me that I have neglected to inform everyone that I now have a full time job at Flower's Bakery.

We are experiencing a thunderstorm for the first time since September. Thankfully, it is on a Saturday and I can relax and listen to the thunder and the rain.

Today I learned that English is not the official language in the United States of America, or England.

The last time my mother called me, I struggled to use English. When I finally did manage to get some out, it was British English.

I can go a few days without using English. It must be noted, however, that I do not say as much as I would as an English speaker simply because my vocabulary is regrettably very small. Fortunately, I am quite good at using the little bit of Japanese that I do know so that when I do speak, it sounds like I am really good.

I have eaten ramen in the United States, and have even made it myself, but after tasting the ramen at this ramen shop, I deny that what I have had in America can even be called ramen. The full flavoured soup, topped with green onions, some meat, and one or two other ingredients I didn't recognize, surrounded well cooked noodles for a bowl beyond compare. While, at the time, I lacked the Japanese word for delicious, I still think it doesn't suffice. I immediately belted out すごいです。(the meaning is similar to amazing) To make things even better, I had some superb fried rice while I waited for my ramen to cool a bit. I've never enjoyed a meal so much. This was truly spectacular. There is no traditional Japanese seating to be found, but sitting at the bar allowed you to watch the cook as he prepared the food. My excellent meal of fried rice and ramen sets me back about 900¥($11), but if there were such a thing as fine dining in ramen, this would be it.

The Turn Around Juice bar is an excellent place to grab some of the freshest Juice, most excellent soup, and a place to create a salad that many restaurants would like you to believe you could prepare in their own establishments. The Juice is made from fresh fruits and vegetables, some of which are organic and they are all combined and juiced for you on the spot. Don't worry though, the people who work there are dedicated to making sure you like your juice. The soups are made with care by the owner's wife, and a spoonful in your mouth will let you know that she has soup making skills that few ever acquire. The salad bar is also a treat. The fruit and vegetables are top notch, and abundant in variety. Here is where a jalepeno and strawberry salad can be whipped together alongside other more common salads. The environment is interesting, and they did a remarkable job making their building inviting. You can connect to the free WiFi while you eat and enjoy a refreshing juice or smoothie. The prices are great, too. Matter of fact, my only real issue is the hours The Turn Around maintains. Want some refreshment on a Saturday? They're closed. Furthermore, late night wanderers like myself will probably have trouble getting there before they close at 7 Monday through Thursday, or 5 on Friday. In their defense, however, the family, and only the family runs this establishment, and I wouldn't expect them to run this place for 60 hours a week.

Thai food is not my specialty, so I can't make any statements as to the authenticity of the food, but I will express my likes and dislikes. I began my meal with the Crispy Tofu, a selection that I was quite pleased with. It came with a sweet chili sauce that was subtly sweet and subtly sour. The sauce was good, but nothing phenomenal. I did enjoy the tofu very much. My main course, the Mango Curry, was good, with the only shortcomings being that the rice was a little dry and the curry was very heavy. Desert came in the form of a black rice pudding that was pleasant, but not worth ordering. I drank an Abita root beer along with my meal, which was by far the best root beer I have had. That along with a steady stream of water was all that I needed to complement the meal. As for presentation, everything was delivered on classy white ceramic dishes, with quality cutlery that excels beyond that of most restaurants. My dinner was a little more expensive than what I am used to, but I ate very well considering the fact. I've had lunch here before and it was quite the deal. At any rate, if you are around, I would recommend the noodles, they are very good.

Poets on the Square represents the best coffee shop I have been to since I left home in January of 2011. Poets is the type of coffee shop for people who like coffee and they prove this by making their coffee drinks deliver that coffee flavour unlike Starbucks. What they did right: > One can taste coffee in their coffee drinks. > They provide small snacks and other foods to complement your coffee, without loosing focus on the coffee. > They provide tea, smoothies, and other drinks so that one can hangout with coffee hating friends at Poets. > Extraordinary customer service. > They have a broad selection of high quality flavourings. > They have adequate seating and tables. > Their hours are top notch for a Cookeville business. > They have a good atomosphere, mostly. What they did wrong: > Iced Coffee drinks and Smoothies are all Big Train powdered mixes.(This is why they lost a star.) > While this didn't have a major effect on my rating, there is no drive thru.(They couldn't have one if they wanted it.)

Like every group of people, it has its problems. But First Baptist is a welcoming, loving church.
