What I Like This Week.

So I've been doing the things I like every Friday, whether or not astronomy related. Just because, maybe some other people would be interested in those objects too, or maybe to list stuff I might want in the future. There really hasn't been any reason to it. Originally I was just going to do gadgets, but there are already tons of great blogs out there on gadgets.

So this week, I like Dragon Age 2. I got it as an early birthday gift (my birthday is the 24th) and have been losing a couple nights of sleep to it already. It's a pretty fun RPG adventure game. It's got all the dwarves and elves and mages and, of course, dragons one could expect in a game. I'm not going to do a review, I haven't the patience for that, plus I haven't beaten the game.

Also, I have to be honest and say I wussed out in Act 2 while fighting a dragon boss and started playing in casual mode. Eff you dragon, eff you! It's kind of annoying to get you down to a sliver of health and then have my whole party wiped out. Anyways, just know that I like it, and maybe you will to if you are into RPG video games.

So that's all for this weeks what I like. I'm still pretty busy, I am going to go help set up for the neighborhood St. Patrick's Day party tonight. It's also by girlfriend's birthday, so special shout out to her. My alma mater, GMU, won their first round of the NCAA tournament, they are facing number 1 seed Ohio State next, it doesn't look pretty.

I am going to the Applied Physics Lab at Johns Hopkins University tomorrow morning, which I am super excited about, if anyone can think of any questions to ask the MESSENGER team when I meet them before I leave tomorrow, let me know in the comments! Also, keep voting! And on a sadder note, I didn't get the position I applied for at the Space Telescope Science Institute, but hopefully there will be other opportunities in my future.

That game sounds pretty intense. I've been hearing a lot about it lately. And don't worry, I'm sure more opportunities will be coming your way.

I've already beat DA2 Once as a Male Warrior, and am now replaying as a Female Mage. I think I liked 1 better.

Great post! There will be lots of job/internship opportunities soon, I'm sure. Maybe I'll end up watching the Mason vs. Ohio game...we'll see.

Oh and I'm excited to find out more about your John Hopkins University experience.

Ah, dragon age. My fiance has been playing this so much recently, it's even impeding on her pokemon time. I'm really jealous of you going to the Applied Physics Lab, that's something I would really love to do. No idea on what to ask them, but enjoy your time!

Dragon age is a good game, I tried it and I actualy liked it.
