6:17 pm - These days.
I was reading through some old posts, and it really makes me yearn I could have made these days last longer, or at least taken a lesson from them, more to heart than I did. They stand as a testament of days long gone, and loves gone to the wayside.

I want that feeling back.

Happy Thanksgiving!! I swear, I am gonna try to update this sucker at least once a week from now on. Same with my xanga. Thats quintessant if anyone cares. I tend to write just my deeps thoughts in that one tho.

1:39 pm - Whats up?
Hey everyone, whats going on?? No, I haven't abandoned you! :-P
I've been really busy with this college thing, ya know? Especially now that I am gonna be takin it a lot more seriously! I've actually also been really busy with Aikido. Despite not having weapons practice last week or this week for that matter, I have been keepin up with the club business. Hehe, I was elected the secretary, actually. So I kinda put myself in charge of the weapons/gi/equipment order. So, I have actually been relaying between a bunch of people and gettin the orders squared off. Don't help that the Taekwando people are ordering with us, but their order is reletively small, so I guess it works out ok. Hows everyone in blurtyland been doing? I know your all prolly gettin over the shock of me actually updating, haha. Well, thats all for now. I have to get my stuff together so I can go do that studying thing... Blech. hehe

1:34 am - Hola
Well, hello everyone. Its been a long fricken while since I bothered to update my blurty. Yes, I do read my friends most every day, its just I now have almost no time at all to update you. Simple fact is that I am updating now because my morning class was canceled and I can sleep in a bit tomarrow. Basically, I am not longer in Calumet City. I am now enrolled and attending Southern Illinois University at Carbondale in their prestigious Aviation Flight program. I had very high hopes for this program, and I still do, and I have not been let down. However, I have come to one conclusion.
This program is as good as it is because you are required to do incredibly copius amounts of studying, reading, and researching. Anyone who knows that I only have 4 classes may be a bit envious, but you must understand. I have just spend 2 hours reading a book of regulations, and that is a light homework assignment. I am still basically two days behind in Flight Primary reading, so that is now where my weekend is going to go. I figure I will go to the rec for Kendo and Aikado this weekend, but beyond that, I will be making up all my lost time.
Also, I am attepting to get into the nationally ranked Flying Saluki's Aviation Team. A team ranked fourth in the nation and has made it to the national competition 36 years consecutively. So, I now have to study like a mad man to make sure that I am going to be one of the few freshman to make it onto the team this year. This also means I have to memorize hundreds of types of planes and learn to use a manual flight computer over the weekend on top of my backlog of work. Thankfully, Nemanja has agreed to give me some of his extra busy time to help teach me the flight computer. However, I am fading quickly, and I wish everyone a wonderful long while to come.

ps.

Please, email me people! I am lonely! There are very few people out here I know!!

2:15 am - OK...
Well... here's a few updates....

It turns out my cousin does NOT have a brain anurism. Which is a very good thing. He did have a tear in his brain which was causing bleeding, but his doctors seem to believe that it is healing, and that he'll be back to normal soon. Which I really really hope!

Some bad news... My sister's friend Mike Tamesco (?) died on Tuesday at the age of 28. I guess he was really sick... My sis's ex boyfriend called today... wanted to call Jill and let her know... she already knew, but I'm still glad he called. He was so much better than this guy she is going out with now...

2:59 am - Work
So today... was awsome. Well, it had its ups and its lows. Very high up, and very low lows. I won't get into the lows. Those are just very low. I didn't get to go to the family reunion today because of work... bah. Woulda like to have gone to that... On the bright side, I did get to meet a very famous person today at work!
hehe! I met Mr. Han!! Yupper! The DJ from Linkin Park! A bt mad that Heather got to meet Chester Bennington, but hell, Mr. Han is awsome. His music videos are the shit. I also got to listen to the entire set of Korn, Snoop, and Linkin Park, as well as Machine Shop. They were really good too. Check em out sometime if you want to hear some good music. I am really really tired, otherwise I'd make this update a lot longer.

3:40 am - Lonely
Hey... Its my journal thingy.. a novel idea to actually update it, ya know??
I spent most of yesterday researching and communicating with Frank and spending an incredibly large amount of money on a computer... Oy... On the bright side, we ordered a moniter that is nice and movable (see fiasco at work - Moniter bigger than me) And it also doubles as a tv with tuner... too bad it cost an arm and a leg. Today I had my doctors appointment... major stress... left me a wreck for the rest of the day, thought I'da been sicker than I was this morning.. Seriously, I was freakin worried and stressed out... I was completely unprepared mentally... I'm not sure how I slipped so badly and didn't prepare myself for it.
After that, picked my check up, came home, ate a bit of food, then went to the track and walked a bit with a couple friends. Biked home - slept till about 5:30, got up, ate dinner, and sat on my lazy ass for a very long time. About 8 Jay gets off work, comes here, we go get gas and dinner, and head to Rob's for halo night. A whole shit load of people I didn't know today. Met Phillip. Played some halo, kicked some ass. Between me and Rob as usual for top kill counts. Bless Kento's soul, he brought sapphire. God, that stuff is good. Took some with him, it was good. Chilled till about 12 there, left cause Jay had to be at work at 6 in the morning...
I'm also really lonely. I miss Bridgette very badly.. but she'll be gettin home today, so it'll be real nice to be able to see her. I can't imagine being away for college... but we did it once, we'll do it again, I spose. I'm just a major wreck today. I need to relax, get unwound... Badly. Seriously. I had a knott in my back that just woundn't let me sleep last night... Ungh, someone save me.

2:34 pm - Sigh
I decided it would most likely be good if I again updated. Last night, or rather yesterday, was Van's Warp Tour 2004. And holy shit did we get our asses kicked. Well, here's the low down. House Usher staff was given the night off, because the house was supposed to stay closed for Warp Tour..... but somehow, somewhere, it got opened. I don't know how... or who did it, but it was the biggest blunder of the night. Basically, security staff and about 90% of the Usher teams were put into the house to help manage it. And thats where I spent the entire time. I was policing an entire fuckin section with Dan and this guy whose name I still don't know, lol. Anyways... I had to get people off the metal bars and stop them from standing on their seats, among other things, but those were the major jobs. I got jipped out of one of my breaks, but oh well. Shit happens, ya know? Heather dropped me off at Bridgette's on the way back, which was way cool, cause I was really worried I would not be able to see her before she left! It was nice, we got to spend some time together before I had to go home :-/ I would rather of stayed, but this damn family.. lol. Anywho... She left this morning for Cancun, and I talked to her this morning when she called me... I don't think she wanted to talk to me, lol, just wanted to leave a message, but i had my phone on and with me cause I was expecting calls... Anyway... I am sad now cause she is gone... but She should have a good time, I am sure! Ok... thats enough for now.

10:59 pm - In the event of an update, this journal with self distruct in...
So its been a while...
No sense in doing a long drawn out update. Lets do something nice and short, so my adoring fan base knows that I am still alive and aloft.
I been working a whole lot.. A whole lot more than I'd like to be right now, actually.It was bad this week. I worked Sunday night and didn't get in till about 1, then finally went to bed around 3:30, then got up at 6:30 for work. I ended up skippin out early on Monday cause my boss wasn't there and I did all the work he wanted me to do. Tuesday was much the same. Went to bed late, got up early, worked till noon, and finding out that I may have to work extended hours because the district will not hire out more computer techs, student workers, or contractors to do the work that they need done. Erick should be back tomarrow tho... That should be an upside to work. Now I am a bit annoyed over circumstances and a total lack of cooperation. *sigh* Why is life so complicated??

10:52 pm - Seething thoughts of Rebellion
I'm not sure how to be feel these last couple days...
I've been really really confused the last few days as well, and I think its beginning to show. I've been really really indecisive and I've had a lot of trouble making any type of decision. I've also been faced with several personal problems that haven't been making my life any easier. I think I am gonna try to make some changes in the future, so who knows where this may go. Words of wisdom in my head right now...

Life is a series of challenges, and man often walks from each one to the next until they eventually pass from this world. Each challenge they take causes their path to change, and that change can be a very large one or a miniscule one, and they may lead to glory or to suffering. There is something that is often overlooked in the process. No matter the change in your path, glory or pain, happiness or failure, all paths inexorably lead forward.

Perhaps more aptly explained by General Patton...

"Life is not the measure of high you get in life, but the measure of high you bounce after the fall."

12:27 am - Here we go...
Well... Here's a weekender update.

Friday... Lets see. I slept till about noon, then ignored the lunch date with Frank cause I didn't want to be rushed to get to work or be too stuffed and then get sick... so yeah, thats my explanation. I went by Bridgette's to see the garage sale for about 15 minutes.. then back home again for work.

Work - Day 1

It actually wasn't too bad, if you ask me. I only had 1 beer spilled on me, and on my shoes at that. So i wasn't too angry. I was working the gates for About 6 hours, I think, but then I got to go into the house for about an Hour and a half. So I missed all of OAR, but I got to hear the second half of Dave Mathews Band, so it was all cool. I wish I coulda heard all of DMB tho, they rock.

We did basic cleanup after the show. Overall, i got home at about 2 am.

Saturday

Well, I ran errands, picked up my new phone and set it to charge. I got to see Bridgette till about 4, then her dad gave me a ride home. I ate a quick bite and then was off to work with Jay. All the Usher teams were at half staff because the concert was projected to have like 11000 people. In the end, we had about... 15000, which was still about half of how many were at Dave Mathews. So yeah, we got our asses kicked staff wise. I was forced to work gate 1 for about... Oh I'd say about 7 hours. I had one 15 minute break, so I was on my feel for all 7 hours with the exception of about 10 minutes from break weh I was sitting. I got moved into the house for the last 10 minutes of Chicago and Earth, Wind, And Fire because Quinten was hurtin and limpin, and Ian sent him out and i replaced him. (he had a broken leg. Its not healed fully, so he's still hurtin) So I got to see the last few minutes of the performance when they were together. At the end, we collected chairs, then had a nice group meeting. Our Executive Managers bitched at Secuity and the Ushers cause of 15 glass bottles that got out of the exec tent. So we got bitched at for about 10 minutes there... We then proceded to have an Usher Meeting (all 4 teams) and got bitched at again by our team leaders for bein sloppy about the bottles and a screw up that happened at SOUTH gates the night before... bah... It sucked. So All in all... I got home at rought 1:30... A bit earlier I think.

It is now... Monday... which means....


Happy 1 Year Bridgette! I love you!!!!

I'm not happy with the recent turn of events. I'm not happy at all. I hate people being upset, especially when there was some way, some freakin things could change. I'm not happy. This is one of those situations aloong the lines of "Kill the Spider to save the Butterfly"

11:10 pm - Those things they won't hear from me.
You know, Yesterday was the mass commorating Our Lady of Knock School. They then invited everyone who ever went to OLOK to spend some time for snacks and a nice community bonding moment in the school hall.
I didn't go.
Today, after Bridgette left, I made a comment to my mom of how I was glad that I didn't go. She said do not talk like that, and that she sacrificed a lot to give me that catholic education. She than said "South Suburban is looking better and better now."

Exuse me. Because I said what I felt, your gonna cut me out of my college??

Listen to this.

Let me tell you a little tail about "sacrificing".
I went to OLOK for 10 years. Those were the absolute worst 10 years of my life. I was given chances to go to public school, by my mom, but I kept going to Knock because she wanted me too. Because I wanted to make her happy. You know what I sarcificed? I sacrified my pride, my dignity, my happiness, everything that would have made my life livable. You know what? I think its time to sacrifice a little so i can be HAPPY. Guess what mom, its costing a hell of a lot more for me to be happy now, isn't it?? Didn't help me then, well now your fucked out of a helluva lot a year, aren't you?

2:17 pm - I am back.
I enjoyed a pleasent couple days of vacation. It was rather enjoyable really. I got to do a whole lot of thinking while I was fishing. If anyone wants to know they details of my vacation, you can either call me or IM me, I think communication is so much better than playing tag. Needless to say, I had a lot to think about and I think I solved some problems. I must say though... have you ever talked to a lake? Try it some time. It resolves a rather lot of tension mentally. Ah well. I have to go to get ready for work. Blink 182 and No Doubt tonight. I hope it doesn't rain. That always puts a damper on things.

12:33 am - Ya know...
Ya know... I very rarely get mad. I get irritted alot, usually skip mad, and go strait to pissed off. No, I did not intend to quote that movie. I'm usually very rational when I am irritated and pissed off,but when I get mad, I tend to say and do things that are usually not thought out nor premeditated. The last couple days have had me going into that irritated state, and today was no different. However, today I get to be genuinely mad. As far as days go, it wasn't that bad. I was at jeremy's party for the majority of the day, and it was good times. Started to get irritated there for a while, then it subsided. However, when I finally got home and got online, I got mad. Really, its been a series of events thats been leading up to this, but the emails I had just set me off. Really, I can't say that its gone away, just more of subsided to the point of irritated again. You know what really annoys me? When someone cannot give me a strait answer. A simple yes or no would have sufficed. Hell, that woulda made me happy. But when I get no answer or even a half garbled nonsequential answer, it just irritates me. Then when someone rubs that answer in my face, it gets on my nerves.
Really, I don't think I can describe how that just puts me in the wrong mood. Well, obviously, here I am now.. Almost 2 hours since I got online and read my mail. You know, I don't give a fuck. This has just been a really bad experience for me.
Fuck the world.
