I'm moving to Indonesia.

I can not believe this. It's all just a dream... any minute I'll wake up now! Yeah... just a dream.

I am so pissed off. If you read a while back, you'll see that my dad had applied for a job overseas. But there were many people going for that same position. I never thought my dad could be so lucky (or I so unlucky).

So in a few months or so, I'm moving to Jakarta, Indonesia, the capitol. I've been told it's a big city. But, on the other side of the globe, in the southern hemisphere, in a country filled with Muslims... I'm upset of course.

But it's not all bad, don't think it's some bum city, because it's not. It's a big, upper class city. Like... New York City or Shanghai, or Hong Kong. Apparently, I'm going to an "international" school. Like, the ones for uber rich people, except my dad's company (Chevron oil) is paying for all of that. I'll live a "luxurious" life. Just without my friends or my mom. (My mom's staying behind).

However, the best part is, I don't have to stay there forever. I can choose to come back and just continue school here. Great, isn't it?

My parents are going there just to see what it's like for a week. In the meantime, I'll have a "nanny". Hmm, I've had them before but long ago, but my parents still were there. It's going to be awkard, living in the same house as some 25 yr old college graduate. But she seems like a nice person, and it's just a week, so it should be fine.

And My dear SSBC members. I may or may not be able to play due to lag and time zone differences. But I guess it would give me a chance to play with our Australian Users.

*sigh*...

---------------

EDIT 12-9-08:

Well, some of my dad's co-workers who also moved to Indonesia, said it was great. Huge house, so you can "constantly have parties and sleepovers". The people there are all rich "of course" (I'm going to a International school. No native scrubs). you also have personal drivers so you always go with friends to the mall or whatever.

Man, this doesn't sound bad at all. Of course, it could all be made up, but I mean... damn. Now I'm afraid that when I move, I won't want to come back.

----------

EDIT 12-13-08: So my parents left today, for their trip to Indonesia. But they said they were also going to Singapore and Moscow. Meh, so I'm having a nanny for a week. She seems nice, hispanic, and pretty young.

I won't have asian parents to boss me around, but it's kind of awkward... Oh well.

-----------

EDIT 12-16-08: My first semester exam was today. Science, I did better than I thought I would. I have five exams in total. Technology tomorrow, algebra and English Thursday, and U.S. history on Friday.

Man, once these are done, Winter Break, awesomeness.

------------

EDIT 12-19-08: School's out! I had to take some pre-entry exam into the new school. But I was pissed, I was not informed about this. Oh, and on the essay the prompt was "what makes an ideal vacation". I wrote "anywhere but Jakerta, Indonesia".

----------

EDKT 1-3-09: Hope you guys had a happy new year. Anyways...

"ERROR - You have been temporarily banned from posting to the BBS for 3 days. You have 2 days, 50 minutes and 55 seconds left until your ban is lifted. Do not attempt to create a secondary account to get around this ban. If we find evidence of you doing so all of your accounts will be terminated.

Reason for ban: You have been banned for posting in a spam thread, entitled "Fuck Yeah I'm Cool.." This only fuels the flames and keeps the topic alive. This is a mandatory ban."

Man that topic was pimp though. How was I supposed to know it was a spam thread? I mean... it was about this mexican saying that he used to smoke with a friend and he "missed that nig". And there was a pic of em flickin' us off, and being cool. Man...

------------

EDIT 1-20-09: 10 days left until I move. Mostly everyone knows by now, but I don't think any of my teachers do. And there is still a couple more people I'd like to talk to. I shouldn't be telling them this at the last minute, but well... I don't want to break up crying. The 31st of January, a Saturday. Day before the Superbowl, pretty nice timing by that old guy I have to live with.

I plan to make a huge ass note on Facebook this weekend (also my last). Pretty much this but with some major parts cut out and tweeked a bit.

Also, I had rage today. I dunno what happened but I got so pissed that when I was standing my nose just started bleeding. Asshole offered me a tissue but I just crumpled it up and threw it in his face. Then walked upstairs. wiping the blood on two of his best suites (they were white too). He later came to my room (unaware of what I had done) and asked me what was wrong. Of course he knew why I was upset (duh). I told him to get out, and he left. I plan to make the last ten days here hell for him.

And tomorrow I'm going to a school basketball game. I figured I should since I haven't been to any before. And it's against probably our biggest rival school. Too bad it's a home game though, I would have liked to go inside Beckendorff at least once (I never have). And it's always a good feeling to win on enemy turf, ya know what I mean?

Also have my last ortho appointment here tomorrow, right before the games. And I changed the super sad face to angry faic.

----------------
EDIT 1-21-09: Yeah, I went to the game(s) tonight. We won all three (of course) C team was 27-21. B team was complete slaughter. 66-36. A team actually got really intense at the end. But we eventually broke through and then they just desperately fouled again and again for the last minute of the game.

I wish it had been an away game since it would be even greater. Plus, I've never actually been inside Beckendorff.

I saw a friend (that was in my latest huge ass blog) after the game. She didn't say hi though, maybe she didn't recognize me. Meh. Now I feel like a fool for not saying something to her which was probably my last chance.

Had a lot of fun, but it was time consuming as hell. 4:30 to 8:15. Now I have to go write an essay about the Holocaust. :/

------------
EDIT 1-28-09: So last night I went to Target and got myself a little journal notebook thing. Not as a diary, but for people to sign. I got maybe 20-30 signatures and most with notes that took up a whole page. (It's a small book btw)

Today was also my last day of swim practice. (We get Thursdays off and there's a meet on Friday so there's no practice). Too bad, like three people I wanted to sign my book weren't there. I don't know where Samantha disappeared off to either. Kind of leaves me hanging, you know? But I still got like 15 or so, including my two coaches. Great guys.

When I got home the "MGroup" was at my house. Packing everything. No couch, and no desk, lots of stuff. So uncomfortable... I might not even get to play tomorrow because of this.

-------------
EDIT 1-30-09: Leaving tomorrow. I got maybe 60 people to sign my book over three days. They're not strangers or anything. I know these guys, I'm cool with half the grade at my school. I cried a little at the end of the day...

I was very sad but when I got home and saw my dad I just instantly flew into a rage. I attack him and in the end all I got was an injured wrist.

If I plan on running away, tonight (or rather early tomorrow morning) would be the time to do it. Love my school, love Texas, love America.

And Malachy banned me for a stupid ass reason. I think he's getting paid more for more bans, srsly.

Well, I'm going to miss living here, bye.

edit: change that 60 to over 100. I had no idea I had so many friends here. Time to PM Malachy asking him to unban me so I can make some goodbye posts.

Jeez - Texas to Indonesia?? That sounds like a drastic transition, if ever there was one.

It's good that you will be going to an international school, since you won't be forced to immediately learn the language and culture in a trial-by-fire situation, but still - You hate to leave all of your friends and familiar places behind.

And a 25 year old college grad alone in your house for the week? Sounds like christmas came early for you!

kRaZyAzN responds:

Extremely.

I know...

I guess.

Thanks Timmy.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich

First, you must spread a thick layer of peanut butter onto the white part of a slice of bread. You can only spread the peanut butter on the white part, and the white part only. You may only spread peanut butter on one side. Spreading peanut butter on both sides will provide an inferior sandwich. Next, you must spread a thick layer of jelly onto the white part of a slice of bread. You can only spread the jelly on the white part, and the white part only. You may only spread jelly on one side. Spreading jelly on both sides will provide an inferior sandwich. You cannot spread jelly onto the same slice of bread onto which you have spread peanut butter. Also, you cannot spread peanut butter or jelly onto more than one slice of bread, as this will provide an undesired excess of either ingredient. Additionally, only peanut butter and jelly can be spread onto these slices of bread; no other ingredient will suffice, and no substitute can be used in a sandwich that is to be legitimately recognized as a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Likewise, only bread may be the substance upon which the peanut butter and jelly are spread, as anything else does not fit the standards of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich; if the peanut butter and jelly are spread onto a culinary medium that isn't bread, the meal at hand simply is not a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Once you have accomplished spreading a thin layer of peanut butter onto the white of one side of one slice of bread, and likewise has been accomplished using grape jelly on a separate slice of bread, you must match the slices of bread up to each other, forming a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. In this scenario, the peanut butter-covered face of bread must be facing the jelly-covered face of the second slice of bread so that the peanut butter surface touched the surface of the jelly. The surface of the peanut butter is not allowed to touch a jelly-less substance of bread, resulting in the jelly facing outwards, and likewise applies to the jelly. If a substance is found facing on the outside of the sandwich, the product will not be accepted as a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. The side with peanut butter and the side with jelly on it must match up and stick together to form one solid sandwich. When the eater picks up the sandwich, he or she must hold both pieces of bread at the same time, or else one slice will fall off, and eating only one slice of bread will not be recognized as the same or even similar to eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Next, you must take a bite of the sandwich. This action will consist of moving the sandwich within such a close proximity of your face that a small "bite" of the sandwich will enter your mouth for you to mash up with your teeth. This bite must be a bite that includes both slices of bread, peanut butter and jelly. Make sure that all obstructions are clear from the mouth and esophagus, not including peanut butter, jelly or bread or any combination of said ingredients. If you have followed all previous steps, this goal will be easily accomplished. Not doing so will create an incorrect and inferior dining experience and thus will not be a peanut and butter sandwich that is being eaten. However, if one successfully gets both peanut butter and jelly in one bite that fits in the mouth and does not result in choking, the dining experience is thus far acceptable. For your complete experience with a peanut butter and jelly sandwich to be considered complete and unobjectable, you must perform the previously mentioned series of taking bites of the sandwich, chewing them, and swallowing them repeatedly until the entire sandwich has been removed visible existence. These circumstances may only be reached by eating the entire sandwich, and no parts of the sandwich may be thrown away or given to somebody else. This is your sandwich, and your responsibility. For the Dining experience to be completed, the sandwich must be completely digested.

kRaZyAzN responds:

Thanks for telling me about Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches!

But what if my bread isn't white, since it's... wheat bread. Does that creat an inferior sandwich?

The Republic of Indonesia (pronounced /%u02CC%u026Ando%u028A%u02C8ni%u02D0z i%u0259/, /%u02CC%u026And%u0259%u02C8ni%u02D0%u 0292%u0259/) (Indonesian: Republik Indonesia), is a country in Southeast Asia. Comprising 17,508 islands, it is the world's largest archipelagic state. With an estimated population of around 237 million people,[3] it is the world's fourth most populous country and the most populous Muslim-majority nation; however, no reference is made to Islam in the Indonesian constitution. Indonesia is a republic, with an elected legislature and president. The nation's capital city is Jakarta. The country shares land borders with Papua New Guinea, East Timor and Malaysia. Other neighboring countries include Singapore, the Philippines, Australia, and the Indian territory of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.

The Indonesian archipelago has been an important trade region since at least the seventh century, when the Srivijaya Kingdom traded with China and India. Local rulers gradually adopted Indian cultural, religious and political models from the early centuries CE, and Hindu and Buddhist kingdoms flourished. Indonesian history has been influenced by foreign powers drawn to its natural resources. Muslim traders brought Islam, and European powers fought one another to monopolize trade in the Spice Islands of Maluku during the Age of Discovery. Following three and a half centuries of Dutch colonialism, Indonesia secured its independence after World War II. Indonesia's history has since been turbulent, with challenges posed by natural disasters, corruption, separatism, a democratization process, and periods of rapid economic change.

Across its many islands, Indonesia consists of distinct ethnic, linguistic, and religious groups. The Javanese are the largest and most politically dominant ethnic group. As a unitary state and a nation, Indonesia has developed a shared identity defined by a national language, ethnic diversity, religious pluralism within a majority Muslim population, and a history of colonialism and rebellion against it. Indonesia's national motto, "Bhinneka tunggal ika" ("Unity in Diversity" literally, "many, yet one"), articulates the diversity that shapes the country. However, sectarian tensions and separatism have led to violent confrontations that have undermined political and economic stability. Despite its large population and densely populated regions, Indonesia has vast areas of wilderness that support the world's second highest level of biodiversity. The country is richly endowed with natural resources, yet poverty is a defining feature of contemporary Indonesia.

Etymology

The name Indonesia derives from the Latin Indus, meaning "India", and the Greek nesos, meaning "island".[4] The name dates to the 18th century, far predating the formation of independent Indonesia.[5] In 1850, George Earl, an English ethnologist, proposed the terms Indunesians - and, his preference, Malayunesians - for the inhabitants of the "Indian Archipelago or Malayan Archipelago".[6] In the same publication, a student of Earl's, James Richardson Logan, used Indonesia as a synonym for Indian Archipelago.[7] However, Dutch academics writing in East Indies publications were reluctant to use Indonesia. Instead, they used the terms Malay Archipelago (Maleische Archipel); the Netherlands East Indies (Nederlandsch Oost Indiƫ), popularly Indiƫ; the East (de Oost); and even Insulinde.[8]

From 1900, the name Indonesia became more common in academic circles outside the Netherlands, and Indonesian nationalist groups adopted it for political expression.[9] Adolf Bastian, of the University of Berlin, popularized the name through his book Indonesien oder die Inseln des Malayischen Archipels, 1884-1894. The first Indonesian scholar to use the name was Suwardi Suryaningrat (Ki Hajar Dewantara), when he established a press bureau in the Netherlands with the name Indonesisch Pers-bureau in 1913.[5]

Toilet paper is a soft paper product used to maintain personal hygiene after human defecation or urination. It differs in composition somewhat from facial tissue, and is designed to decompose in septic tanks, which some other bathroom and facial tissues do not. Most septic tank manufacturers advise against using paper products that are non-septic tank safe. Different names are used for toilet paper in countries around the world, including "loo roll/paper," "toilet roll," "dunny roll/paper," "bog roll," "bathroom/toilet tissue," "jacks roll" or just "tissue."

Barbecue or barbeque[1] (with abbreviations BBQ, Bar-B-Q and Bar-B-Que, diminutive form barbie, used chiefly in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom, and called Braai in South Africa) is a method and apparatus for cooking food, often meat, with the heat and hot gases of a fire, smoking wood, or hot coals of charcoal and may include application of a marinade, spice rub, or basting sauce to the meat. The term as a noun can refer to foods cooked by this method, to the cooking apparatus itself, or to a party that includes such food. The term is also used as a verb for the act of cooking food in this manner. Barbecue is usually cooked in an outdoor environment heated by the smoke of wood or charcoal. Restaurant barbecue may be cooked in large brick or metal ovens specially designed for that purpose.

Barbecue has numerous regional variations in many parts of the world. Notably, in the United States, practitioners consider barbecue to include only indirect methods of cooking over hardwood smoke, with the more direct methods to be called "grilling".

In British usage, barbecuing and grilling refer to a fast cooking process directly over high heat, while grilling also refers to cooking under a source of direct, high heat-known in the U.S. and Canada as broiling. In US English usage, however, grilling refers to a fast process over high heat, while barbecuing refers to a slow process using indirect heat and/or hot smoke (similar to or possibly identical to roasting). For example, in a typical U.S. home grill, food is cooked on a grate directly over hot charcoal, while in a U.S. barbecue, the coals are dispersed to the sides or at significant distance from the grate. Its South American versions are the southern Brazilian churrasco and the Argentine asado.

Alternatively, an apparatus called a smoker with a separate fire box may be used. Hot smoke is drawn past the meat by convection for very slow cooking. This is essentially how barbecue is cooked in most U.S. "barbecue" restaurants, but nevertheless, many consider this to be a distinct cooking process called smoking.

The slower methods of cooking break down the collagen in meat and tenderize tougher cuts for easier eating.

Wow, Texas to Indonesia. Big difference. Sounds like you won't be able to talk to anyone unless they end up staying up all night or something. But at least you can choose to come back to Texas.

Also, you've got a LOT of text walls here.

Yeah, but isn't that what Crink does? Yeah, so not all is lost. I guess it'd be a good experience.
