You remind me of myself when I was 17. Of course I'm not much different now, opinion wise, but I guess there are just a few subtle hints of slight maturity in me now.

I also used to think Porsches were cool. (You don't actually drive one, do you?) But rotaries are better. Anyway, make sure to vote Libertarian when you can.

Hmm, the official drinks of the PLS.

I can't officially let you know the actual name of the PLS, but that last line about procrastination ability definitely puts you in our boat.

Here's a taste:
Semiconductor Physics exam tomorrow at 8:30AM. Started studying today at 8:00PM after the Leafs game.

Love the all-nighter.
