TAY Time Chat – Ration the News

If you've been paying attention to the state-side weather lately, you might have noticed that there was an awful lot of snowing happening all over the country these past few weeks. Some places got it a little heavier than others. Regardless, I managed to catch some here and it's totally killing my midterm schedule—so… » 2/24/15 6:24pm 2/24/15 6:24pm

TAY Time Chat - Home Early

Hi, TAY! I left class a little early to swing by home and grab my laptop power cable. To be honest, I made an active decision to not bring it with me this morning, thinking it had been charging all night and I wouldn't need to worry about the battery life. As soon as I got to my editing class, though, I saw that I… » 2/17/15 4:59pm 2/17/15 4:59pm

​TAY Time Chat - Types of Stereos

After I nabbed it on sale a while ago, I finally got to play Punch Out on the Wii yesterday. I honestly hadn't played a Punch Out game before this one in ages—I think the last time I ever managed to touch one was when I was about ten years old, so outside of watching people speedrun the earlier entries in the series,… » 2/16/15 5:00pm 2/16/15 5:00pm

TAY Time Chat – Revolve

While some of you patoots may run off and play Evolve tonight, I'm going to be in class. But Neryl, someone (perhaps even myself) may say: What are you going to be doing when you're not in class? Well, brave soul, I'll be playing the DLC for Hyrule Warriors. After all, someone has to get me extra festive before my… » 2/10/15 5:00pm 2/10/15 5:00pm

TAY Time Chat - Stumbling Through the Dark

After forcing myself to keep up with it, I'm finally going to finish Conrad's The Heart of Darkness today—and I'm honestly not even sure how to feel about it. I can already tell it's going to be one of those stories I'll have to reread multiple times to get anything substantial out of (luckily it's rather short), but… » 1/27/15 5:00pm 1/27/15 5:00pm

TAY Time Chat - Why-nasty Warriors?

During quite a long bout of trying to avoid doing actually decent work yesterday, I found myself looking through all of the upcoming releases for the next couple of months. DOA5 had another edition coming out, as well as some of the stuff by Nintendo, but after I looked through all of that I couldn't help but notice… » 1/20/15 5:00pm 1/20/15 5:00pm

TAY Time Chat – Hittin' the Books

Hey everyone, sorry this is a little late, but I never got to working on it since I had a kind of large burst in coursework towards the beginning of the week. Classes started up for me again yesterday, with the majority of my classes being today, so I just never was able to get around to it. Luckily, I was still able… » 1/13/15 6:00pm 1/13/15 6:00pm

TAY Time Chat - Snowtime like the Present

When I was zipping through Texas a few weeks ago, actually pretty close to the border, I got to see a rare sight—real Texas snow. Now, to be fair, it almost always snows on me whenever I'm going through Texas at around Christmas time, but I've never seen it snow quite that close to Mexico before. It got to pretty… » 1/06/15 5:20pm 1/06/15 5:20pm

The Sheepyard Shift - Polymorphed Edition

Sorry, guys, some dumb mage thought it'd be funny to blink in and cast polymorph on the Graveyard Shift tonight, so now we just have this sheep. The sheep has been here the entire time, though, but I can totally understand if you didn't see it. Sheep are pretty notorious for pulling the wool over your eyes. » 1/02/15 10:18pm 1/02/15 10:18pm

TAY Time Chat: Ridin' the Rails

In a desperate attempt to take some of my money away from the airlines after all of the horror stories I've been hearing lately with disrespecting luggage and human rights, I made it my one duty to force the family to try out the train out this year when we set out to see family. Honestly, it took about as long as it… » 12/30/14 5:00pm 12/30/14 5:00pm
