I go to public school in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro School System, I'll be damned if I haven't grown some thick skin by now.

This is the Lounge, so anything goes, right?


I find that I talk to you a lot because you're really active here and we're very close in age. Plus, my best friend growing up is a year younger than I am also...so I relate to his grade level more than my own sometimes.


Besides that, well, I'm just a pretty weird guy. I'll admit it. I'm not the most social person with people I outright don't know...but once I feel that I know them well enough (whether in real life or on an internet hockey board), I talk their heads (or fingers, I guess) off.

I don't know about me. I'm kind of curious for lack of a better word. My roomate is 100% against drinking, so that won't go over well.

I'm going to drink a little when I go over to Europe, but not nothing that's going to make me piss-pants drunk.

I'll probably get sucked in some time around campus. I'm just hoping I'm not one of those people who is violent when drunk. Totally not my personality because people think I am high half the time (no, I don't do drugs).


Somewhat related story, probably THE most embarassing moment ever. When I was in the hospital, they put me on some high dose drugs. One of them made me hallucinate. I'd close my eyes and see like these colorful kaleidoscope images. In my hospital room, there was some random nurse, my school's headmaster, my mom, my aunt, and one of my friends. Well, long story short, I thought for some reason the doctor had told me I could never play sports again. I started yelling at the nurse "to tell him to go **** himself, I am going to do whatever the **** I want" several times. Then, I just started cussing out everyone in the room. It was definately an out of body experience, and I couldn't control myself at all. Drugs, even helpful ones, be crazy man.

EDIT: Not looking forward to having my wisdom teeth removed from my mouth...

I never drank anything while I was in Europe, even with my parents and brothers trying to talk me into it. Now, all of them think I'm strictly 100% against drinking and anything associated with it.


As far as the hospital story goes, that's gotta be an awkward situation to be in. I don't have any embarrassing hospital stories that I know of.








**** it, I'm gonna go ahead and tell you about why I was in the hospital like I alluded to when Novacane first posted in the Introductions thread.



Anyone remember that game against the Bruins during January of the 2010-2011 season when we lost 7-0? I'll always remember that day/game. During that game, I started to feel numbness, which I attributed to anger at first. After a while, however, I began to realize it was localized to just the left side of my body. I quickly began to freak out, yelling towards my mom that I needed to go to the doctor. He pretty much confirmed then and there what was happening, that I was having/had a stroke and needed to go to the hospital.

So on that night, we drove over to Wakemed in Raleigh and they checked me into the one of the children's(I was 17 at the time) emergency rooms. They kept me there for routine testing and eventually convinced us that they saw nothing on any of the scans or tests that indicated why I should be there. Once I regained movement of the left side of my body, they sent me home a little bit scared but not reassured about what had happened.

After that it was the first day of my first semester exams, during which I felt completely off and couldn't remember stuff that I knew I had reviewed extremely well on during the review session on that previous Friday. I figured that I had done unusually poorly on the exam, and drove home a little bit upset. As soon as I walk in the door, my dad's panicking at my that I need to pack up my things to get checked back into Wakemed, that they saw some alarming test results that needed to be checked out further. So we drove back out there that day to find out what they wanted to tell us.

The night before during my short stay at the hospital, all the specialized staff at the hospital had gone home, and the person who was looking over my test results had missed an issue that was picked up on during the followup that Monday morning. The specialist saw a dead spot in my brain, which pointed towards the fact that I did indeed have a stroke.


I stayed in the hospital for the next few days, while the medical staff ruled out everything under the sun but a stroke. In came swarms of cardiologists, neurologists, and various other doctors all asking my parents and I a slew of questions about everything. After an even more complex series of tests, they determined that a blood vessel somewhere headed towards my brain had become blocked from something, and that due to the hole in my heart combined with that blocked blood vessel, blood flow had shut down and caused my brain to cease functioning properly, resulting in the stroke.


Very fortunately for me, I was able to recover completely and shouldn't have anything like that experience ever again. It was some sort of bizarre accident that completely resolved itself and created no lasting complications. I was apparently the third 17 year old person to have been admitted to Wakemed Raleigh with stroke symptoms during a two-month span, though, which I found rather odd.



So, yeah, that's my story. Oh, and if this isn't really acceptable to be posted here, Dave, please feel free to remove it.




EDIT: Good luck staying focused to read this post, Dubinchuk.

Oh hell yeah, when I'm overseas all bets are off. For graduation my parents are taking me (and the whole family, grandparents and stuff included) on a cruise, spending Christmas at (on?) St. Thomas. Drinking age not a problem, I'm so pumped.

Also, the gambling age is lowered too, which is awesome. I've been a huge Texas Hold'Em fan (and player) ever since I saw Chris Moneymaker win it all all the way back in what, 02, 03? So excited to actually enter a tournament, I feel like I'll be raw, er, good.

Cut down
Wow man, that'd freak the **** out of me. Luckily, my staff was top-notch and knew exactly what to do. They saved me from any permanent damage. The doctor who worked on me is now the head doctor at the new Wake Med kid's wing. I actually did promotion work for it which was interesting.

Here's a link to my story: http://www.wakemed.org/landing.cfm?id=1412

I'm gonna go watch the video right away now that you gave me warning not to.


EDIT: I am disappoint. I was hoping for something that I could use to tease you with, but I guess I'll have to wait for something else.

Not my greatest work. First time on camera after being told I didn't have to do anything. I haven't even watched it to avoid embarassment. I have no clue if they used any of what I said.

You just introduce yourself, you don't say anything else.

Alright, I can live with that. I wasn't the most, let's put this nicely, personable person when being filmed. I had this unrational fear that people would burst out laughing at the first word I said. Luckily, I'm over that now.

Hmm, it's already almost 1? I should probably go to bed, seeing as I need to get up to go to Emerald Pointe with my brother and his girlfriend tomorrow...but I'm having too much fun posting on here a bunch again and playing Dead Island.

I'm sure anything you say at less than 100% is better than what I would say at 110%. I am terrible at trying to talk slowly and actually think about what I'm saying.

My brain is about to implode due to a headache, but I'd rather post than try to go to sleep. Speaking of sleep, my sleep schedule is completely ****ed up. Usually watch Netflix until ~ 3am, and then wake up around 1:30 pm. Go eat lunch and then it's already around dinner time.

Drinking (and partying in general) is highly overrated.

Parties are great for meeting people (ie girls) in college. Blacking out and/or making a complete ass of yourself doesn't help that, unless the girl in question is interested in drinking as much as you are.

Ah, the joys of not having a job...yet I complain about having nothing to do on the days that I'm not working.

Let's see...since my parents are in Italy, I have no real expectations of what I need to be doing. As a result, my day consisted of cleaning out the cat's litterbox, mowing the lawn, playing Dead Island, watching a fair amount of golf, and watching about a minute of basketball. Oh, and posting on here like it's a shiny new toy.

Luckily I haven't gotten myself that far yet, thank goodness. Although when I did drink, it was usually alone so I don't know if I was an ass or not in the first place.

Honestly, I'd rather have a job just to say I did something this summer. I'm too lazy to go out and do it though. The whole thought of working actually excites me in general though. I think I'm going to be a "good employee" once I get through college. Just has to be something I enjoy to get me motivated. Case in point, this last semester was the highest GPA I've ever had because I liked the classes much more than any other year's classes.

If you don't mind my prying, what GPA did you earn? Both this semester and overall through what would be the high school years. (I'm not sure if Ravenscroft is different about that or anything)
