THE WORLD’S LARGEST LIMO

topgearfiatpandalimo2.53

In BBC’s Top Gear, they had a challenge in which they had to make homemade limousines. Jeremy Clarkson, in particular, took a Fiat Panda and extended it to an¬†outrageous size. By the end of the challenge, Jeremy’s Fiat Panda was eight feet longer than a bus. What would you do if you had a limo that big?

A WRETCHED AIRLINE!!!

I saw one of the most disturbing things on the news regarding a passenger who was forcibly removed from his seat and then dragged off the plane while bleeding from the mouth! What kind of enterprise does that to their own customers? This video has made me concerned about what direction the airline industry is going as a result of this attack. I no longer feel safe going on an airplane after seeing this!

FUTURE TRAVEL PLANS

As I prepare for my career as a student at Concordia University, I examine some of the programs they have to offer. One program, in particular, caught my immediate attention: their Study Abroad Program. This system will allow me to take classes in other countries and see the world. Because traveling has served as a primary source of inspiration for my writing, this would be a very worthwhile opportunity to participate in. I looked through the list of locations these classes would take place in and they include my ancestral homes of Ireland and Scotland. My life would be complete if I set foot on the lands where my ancestors lived. There are also classes being offered in various prominent universities in the United Kingdom such as Cambridge and Oxford. In addition, there will be classes being offered in Paris, France and Milan, Italy. The more I think about it, the more I realize that this program will give me a chance to do my favorite things as well as things I wanted to do my entire life. Reconnect with my ancestral roots, take advanced classes, gather inspiration for my writing, and become more cultured. Overall, I look forward to when this takes place once I have consolidated my bearings with Concordia in a year or so.

SHOW REVIEW: BLUE MAN GROUP

I saw the Blue Man Group tonight and here is my review about it. The show was a clever blend between subtle humor, surprising props, and masterful special effects. The finale alone was very explosive with an elaborate combination of confetti, ribbons, lights, and giant beach balls flying in every direction. I must say that they know how to entertain their audience and make them laugh with a straight face and without saying a word. It is a show that completes the Las Vegas experience and is recommended to anyone who is seeking a unique thrill.

SIN CITY ANALYSIS

It is another day in Las Vegas and after examining every aspect of this town, I realize how Las Vegas got its famous nickname: Sin City. All of its attractions revolve around the Seven Deadly Sins. The casinos represent greed, the buffets represent gluttony, the lounges and pools represent sloth, the boxing matches represent wrath, the strip clubs represent lust, the high rolling gamblers represent pride, and the low rolling gamblers represent envy. With this information in mind, I believe I can use it for inspiration for the villain the Young Guardians face when they visit this city.

AIR TRAVEL

Air travel has always been my favorite form of traveling. You could go to any place on the planet through an airline terminal. I am currently on my way to an exciting destination and as I look out at the sunset, I remembered something that inspired me long ago. While gathering inspiration for my first volume, The Young Guardians and the Genesis Spell, I looked out my window on the plane and witnessed the clouds flowing past like a silver current. Upon gazing upon this sight, I thought of the ideal situation Joshua Rauje would be when his ability to fly would first manifest. He would be drifting through the misty heavens, marveling at how small the world is below him. Of course he almost became a bug on the windscreen of a plane, but he left the experience with a refined view of the world around him.
