Yes im back and yes i'll be doing some uploads soon. I've been addicted to gta heists lately but That honda day special will come soon. I gotta say its good to have some down time. Im doing a summer class for a month after that im free till fall. Im going to a convention called animenext in NJ with friends im really looking forward ton that. Yes i will have youtube coverage. First though im backed on youtube videos so that I need to address. My honda project is coming together the spec D catback is on. Now i just need the headers and downpipe with the short ram coming next week. That'll be it for now because I need to work on the camino. 
So I forgot to make a traditional honda day special this year but recently one came together and I was able to cook something up. So one day you'll see that. For those who dont know I usually around this time do a car for honda day and post the paint job up for download on forza motorsport or horizon whatever is the newest one. Thing is I dont know when this'll be. Life is catching up with me again. Its one of those times where you live in the fast lane too long you'll forget. Lately my grades in college have been bad in my monday wednesday classes and to be honest I feel stupid in them. I came in this semester with optimism and hope to get all A's to bring up my 2.8 gpa. I take 2 classes on those days and all they are awful and make me feel so stupid. For instance my calc. I course that a definite retake. I've put so much effort in that class but nothing clicks. I missed the first session since the snow hit hard and even though class was going on there I couldn't make it because roads were bad down my way. Ever since then it's been a downward spiral. I went to see my professor once for help that was all it took to never go again. I felt like she was doing everything for me and I wasn't taking away anything from her. To top it off that's the same way her classes are run. She'll go over about 3 section per class for 2 hours. Very inconsistant in her methods. I read the book and nothing, I went to tutoring and its like they're the one's teaching me chapters which even they struggle with, I tried youtube and this software provided by the book to go over chapters. The only thing I haven't done is pay a tutor. She talks more to the board than her students and even makes mistakes without realization. And I know for a fact its no extra credit because she offers none with one exception the homework. She didnt grade homework before but I still try it but now she gives the homework on the syllabus as well as worksheets which she started giving and grading after our first test basically as punishment for our bad grades on the first exam. Honestly this class has made me feel like an idiot. She even insulted my vocabulary for not saying "the quantity of" when I said "parentheses" which I understand it's a college course and yes that is the correct form to pronounce it I admit but to rapidly stop me and tell me to "read it mathematically"? I admit my vocabulary may not be as sophisticated as individuals who have the fortune and the knowledge to obtain a PHD in mathematics, very commendable by the way I will say, but to sound ignorant and make me feel inadequate due to my methods of speaking is rather uncalled for. I'm a regular human being just as you or anyone else. Clearly he knows he stuff but her ability of teaching is not compatible with me. Plus to give homework as punishment is what a Highschool teacher should be doing not a college professor of her ability even if she is head of the math department. All I ask is to be taught things not given the assumption that my intelligence is the same as her since i find that ignorant. At this point she probably finds me a waste of time just as I find her class to be. My other class is law II and that class is just a bother. Its simple, you memorize 3 chapters and get a test every week. approx. 60-70 questions per test half true false half multiple choice. All memorization if you dont understand the chapter tough luck. There are 9 tests he drops the lowest 2. I've gotten 60s range with the exception of one 77. I put a lot of effort in trying to do what I do. My tuesday thrusday classes are such cake. Yes I've had some bad grades but I have B-C average in those courses. Compared to probably D-F range in the others. I just feel so hopeless, so stupid in those courses. I remember how hard I tried and said "this semester all A's. You can do it" now I'm not so sure. I've never had a failing grade in my entire academic career. Just knowing this semester I've lost just puts me in such a slump and it isn't my fault. I try but when you feel like your efforts are all in vain especially when all your life the lowest you've gotten was a C on anything. You know originally I wanted to take mechanics at my community college but I chose business administration because every time I'd ask the college about the auto program I never got a single good answer. It was always "enough to get you certified" well how much is enough? Was there hands on training? am I able to work on my car? (that would have been heaven by the way I'd pay out of county tuition to go to that) How deep are the teachings? It was always the same answer and I got sick of it. Not even advertised at open house. Later I found out that the time was split between campus and an auto factory and it offered a certificate provided by ford motors. FORD MOTOR! C'MON YOU DIDNT THINK TO MENTION THAT? They didn't even know when the course was offered. Ya. The site said it was offered anytime but when we went down to the campus they told us only odd number years so like 2015 and 2017. If you went for 2014 or 2016 you wouldn't have been able to apply.....WHY WOULD THAT MATTER!? I felt like I was cheated out of my passion. I already said after I got my associate I'd go to get certified in mechanics but I saw this as an opportunity to open my own shop sometime. That would be so awesome. Thats why I chose this major and to be honest yes it is interesting and yes I feel like I can use it so I cant be too upset. All I want is to make myself proud academically, to make my girlfriend, parents and family proud of me and to have a degree I can fall back on. Now I just feel to hopeless. Like I'm not good enough for these courses. All that optimism is gone. I knew I should have dropped my math course when I had the chance but I couldn't get a hold of my adviser. Plus we missed so much class and I couldn't go to all the sessions because the snow where I was at was so bad that my parents wouldn't even let me go. I had only gone to 3 lectures between the constant closings and snow ins. It was 1 month later and when I finally got to my adviser it was too late. I wouldn't have gotten a refund and I'd have to get approval from the professor I was switching to. I was just beside myself entirely. This semester was nothing but bad luck. I just can't believe how this has gotten. I just feel so hopeless anymore. Anyway I'm hitting a car show with my family and girlfriend this upcoming sunday yes it'll be on youtube but after that I think I'm just gonna focus on my education for a while. I'll pop on add some favs and do updates now and then but it'll be slow for a while.
I'm happy to actually say that my car is coming together. The visual stuff is fine but that's not what I'm talking about here. I've bought some performance parts for my car and will soon have them put on. Now for those who don't know I drive a 2002 honda civic EX EM2 4 door sedan its an automatic. Some may say doing stuff to an auto car isnt worth it but its my first cat Im attached to it and I want to make a car that I can enter in shows while using it as a daily and for future family use. I've already decided if by somehow the stock D17A2 goes and that if it is within my power I will see about swapping a K20A2 engine but that is if the time comes because the d series is very healthy has 107k miles picked it up at 96k miles it was a salvage car. I've put fog lights, type r front and rear lips, decals and at honda day I got a type r badge (which now doesnt fit because they sold me the wrong one they told me it would.....I PAID FOR IT IMMA MAKE IT WORK). My goal isn't just horespower on this alone it's just a small project to call mine. I found some cheap stuff on amazon, yes it may sound ricey but I'm ballin on a budget. Spec D exhaust and Autodynasty Headers. I need to get a cat once I find out the flange size on the headers and next month an AEM short ram intake is to be installed. Next year it'll be rims, tires, coilovers and paint after that it should be good to go then I'll consider entering my car at honda day. Maybe I'll just do the coilovers then consider entering under preferred parking but entering alone seems iffy to me. I'm debating on posting photos of the car even without plates. Im looking forward to all of this it'll be a great time and I'm glad another one of my dreams are coming true
I know I didn't advertise this but its only because I wanted that last post about Paul Walker to stay for a while.

R.I.P. Paul 1973-2013

But the Honda Day stuff is being uploaded on my channel I have 12 up I just need to go through the stablizer and tags and such. Honda Day was awesome this year and I'm glad that my girlfriend had a great time. Here's a link the entire experience is in segments.




That being said, after honda day we went to see furious 7 (no spoilers here by the way) and....it honestly made me cry (liquid pride for bronies). I was in tears. I think I can speak for all the fans saying we we're honored to know you Mr. Walker. We will never forget you and you will remain in our minds and hearts just as the family of cast members you have shall be remembered and in our hearts. The ending was truly something to behold (no spoilers) and it really moved me as I was walking out. I even reved my engine 3 times up to around 5 or 6,000 rpm just in his honor no lie i said i was gonna do it and yup i did. I actually bought a decal off amazon in his honor to for the rear window (there is so much going on with my honda right now but I digress). I hope everyone gets a chance to see the film and experience what all the fans did. I hope you all have a wonderful evening

For Paul
This entry is going to have a little bit more emotion than any of my others as you could probably imagine because this is about a man who has inspired many, myself included, not just as car lovers but as people. When the world heard of Paul Walkers passing...it was shocking there was no denying it. To see one of the fast and furious family gone was a tragedy to all of us but let's all not forget one thing and I think it goes without saying. Paul Walker is more than just Brian O'Connor. He is a great person for what he did and just who he is defines what I think we should be. I see the things said about him helping people and the good he bought to this world, not just his best franchise, and say that is someone I think we should all try to be. All the fans needless to say were hit hard but the people that got hurt most and that we all feel for were his friends, co-stars and family. I highly doubt that this mere journal entry will reach any of them but if by some miracle it does I want to extend my sincerest condolences and sympathies to the Walker Family, to the Fast and Furious Family because lets face it they aren't just another movie cast they're a family and to anyone that he has every known in his life because regardless of how famous a person is, regardless of financial status in the end that is what we all are. We are people and Paul Walker is no exception he is a person. I speak not only as a hardcore fan of Fast and Furious but also as a person who see's that a great person is up there in Heaven right now watching down and smiling at the people he loves. To the Walker Family, my heart goes out to you with the deepest sympathy my heart can give. To the Fast and Furious Family, my heart is with each of you. To all his friends I am truly sorry for your loss and again my heart feels for you. As far as FNF goes all I can say is this. Hollywood can make street racing films as much as it wants. It can make good ones, it can make bad ones or even attempt to reboot fast and furious but no matter the effort is done or the hard work put into those movies there will only be one Fast and Furious series. There will only be one series that not only redefined what a racing movie is but also redefined the concept of family for everyone who has seen it and opened our minds and hearts to cherish that new concept. Something like that can't ever be recreated again and Justin Lin has every right to be proud of what he created in 2001. There will only be one fast and furious franchise, there will only be one fast and furious family and I'm sorry for any generation who will not be able to see it's greatness. To anyone out there all I can say is keep the franchise alive. Keep Fast and Furious going for future generations because those movies are more than just million or billion dollar masterpieces. They are more than just blockbusters or part of Hollywood's greatest hits. They are an inspiration to anyone who see's them and for that of which who inspired me I can only thank Justin Lin for making something so wonderful not just for car lovers like me but for anyone to enjoy. Thanks for taking the time to read this I hope you all have a good day.
Yes im back and yes i'll be doing some uploads soon. I've been addicted to gta heists lately but That honda day special will come soon. I gotta say its good to have some down time.
