Just got back from the Madrigal Dinner. It was quite interesting and very entertaining.
Im not sure how to describe it. Its like a renaissance fair/dinner with a show. All the characters, well at least most all the characters talked as if they were British. Except the jesters... they couldn't talk, all they could so was try to get me to give them money so they would leave me alone... It worked
There is much more I could say about it, but I really don't feel like it right now.
I wish I had some pictures of it, but alas... I have yet to get a new camera
Im ashamed to admit how much I slept yesterday. And to be honest Im not really sure how many hours it was, all I know is that I slept more then I was awake. Its not like Im sick or anything, I feel fine. I sleep when Im not even tired; my head is totally fucked up...
...I set my cell phone alarm to wake me up in ten minutes. I wake up, set it for another ten minutes and pass out. I did this for over two hours.
Just woke up from a 4 hour nap... I cant tell if Im happy I was able to sleep so long, or depressed cause Im that big of a lazy loser that I needed to sleep in the middle of the fucking day cause I didn't have anything else to do... It might be both
I hate thinking about the future. Im the person who want to live for right now. People (my parents) have been trying to throw me into the future. You know what... I don't wanna look for a better job, I don't wanna pick a major yet, I don't wanna make plans that consist of me have to look at myself when Im 60. Im here, right now, I don't care what happens, Im letting it all just play out. For me, what happens; happens.
I don't go back to class until the Jan. 26. Today, so far Iv worked 3 hours, watched DVD's, slept, and rode along to Madison with Jake and Clay, which of course I slept on the drive there and back... I have no idea what Im going to do for a whole month. I can only sit on my ass for so long, you know?
Im not sure who General Tso is, but he makes some good chicken!
I picked up some rum for new year; you cant go wrong there.
I got about 20 minutes of sleep before heading out to work this morning. I spent the good part of my night at Katrina's watching movies and just hanging out. I missed doing that. We watched Badder Santa last night, and fuck... That's a fucking funny and fucking vulgar movie... FUCK! I didn't get home until about 3:45 then had to be at work at 5... I didn't try to sleep, but eventually passed out.
I have to go and pick up some supplies for my new years... booze mostly. Just a little of this and a little of that. Katrina and Abbey will hopefully be hanging out here for new years, so its going to be a blast!
it wasn't so bad, I mostly got cash and DVD's so it was all pretty good after our whole gift opening deal we sat around and 'played games as a family'. Meaning my brothers and I make fun of each other and try to cheat. Andrea was there too which is anyways nice to have someone else join in on the fun. She brought a new game 'cranium' to play and it was a hit. Jake and her won of course, they also kicked our asses at trivial pursuit... But I let them win.
Its Christmas eve, but it doesn't really feel like it. The excitement of Christmas I felt when I was younger has dulled. But I suppose that's the price people pay when they age. Christmas eve is never a big deal at my place. There never is any fancy dinner. At the moment Im making french fries... The last three years iv worked on the 24. I had to work with clay tonight and he was working so fucking slow... (I love the kid, he's my brother. But he can really piss me off sometimes.) im going to midnight church tonight, I would rather do that then in the morning... I know only of one gift im getting; Jake got me Scrubs season 2 (he already showed it to me).
I got to the door and I stopped. I couldn't leave without giving her a kiss.
Yesterday was my last day of classes before my month break. I had one final left to take, that's it, just one.
The final started at 1. I on the other hand didn't wake up until 1:30. Some times when your a lazy fuck like me an hour long nap turns into about three and a half hours... I set two fucking alarms to wake me up, and no, nothing! I live about half an hour away from school. This was not good. I woke my ass up and hauled ass to school praying I wouldn't get a speeding ticket. When I got there the last person was finishing up and I begged the teacher to let me have ill 3 to finish it... She let me
had I slept another 5 minutes I would have been totally fucked!
Last night I hung out with Katrina and gave her Christmas presents. I got her some buttons and a patch from Hot Topic (cause you cant go wrong with those), and the new Green Day live CD/DVD 'Bullet In A Bible'. I usually sucks suck at getting people gifts and end up just asking them what they want to me buy them... This time I was totally flying blind and still got her something she really likes. I did good! She got me a compilation CD that includes Bright Eyes, and many other great bands. I really like it!
Then I took her out to dinner, Chinese of course (again, you cant go wrong there). We ate and talked about this-and-that. Then went back to her house to watch the Green Day DVD (those guys fucking rock!).
My week has been quite eventful thus far. Monday night I went to a choir concert in Mayville to see Katrina and Abbey sing. It was very entertaining. There is this one guy I could swear was wearing make-up, but I was assured he wasn't.
Last night I went over to Katrina's to talk and hang out and I ended up helping her with her frog dissection. That was fun... There is nothing better than ripping up a frog!
Tonight after my physics final I think Im going to do some last minute Christmas shopping. I don't have to much more to do, which is good cause Im running low on cash. Next week Friday Im going to some medieval dinner/show thing mayville (I keep forgetting the name of it); its supposed to be a lot of fun, so Im looking forward to that...
I pay about $55 a month for my cell phone bill. It includes 1000 minutes, with free incoming calls. I don't call people usually so Im always left with like 800 minutes at the end of the month with no roll-over... I need some people to call!
Iv been thinking a lot lately... Pretty much about one thing... Or one person to be more exact. A person who I messed things up with and now all I wish is that I could go back and stop myself from being a complete bastard. I had a really good thing in my life and I fucked it up. I can only hope that the damage iv caused can be fixed and that things can go back to the way they were... ill hate myself if I dont at least try to fix things... I want nothing more this holiday season but for things to go back to how they were before...
These are pictures me my brothers and I at our family Christmas yesterday... Sorry there are none of the other one that I was drunk at... The little girl in red is my second cousin Chloe; she is the cutest little kid I have ever seen.
Last night I had to go the a family Christmas party for my moms side of the family. This is the side of the family I really like to chill with. I was feeling good and having a good time so I started drinking... I kind of lost control and ended up getting totally trashed around all my relatives. When I got home I was ok for about an hour until I had a little talk with the toilet... It was the best family Christmas party I ever went to!
I got little sleep last night; I was up late. Around 1:30 I was dead tired and went to bed, but I couldn't fall asleep for another 45 minutes or so, I guess I just had a lot on my mind. I had to get up at 4:30 this morning, not cool...
Last night Jake and I did a test run on his studio. It worked out really well. We recorded the song 'we both go down together' by the decemberists, Jake played the guitar and I worked the vocals. It turned out really nice, but there is still some work that needs to be done on it. I wanna do a couple more vocal tracks to get it down right.
Once we have everything tested out we'll start recording fresh songs that Jake wrote. He told me that ill slowly learn everything that his $20,000 recording degree taught him.
my physics lab professor was being a real asshole today
I got to the class and he up and left for 30 minutes while we all just sat there. He's old so he probably was in the bathroom that whole time. Then he came back and got all pissy cause no one knew what we were supposed to do for our lab... fucker
one more week and im FREE!!! 5 weeks of sitting on my ass and drinking... What could be sweeter?
I would really like to take a road trip some time over my break but I don't think I could afford to miss that much work, ill be lucky if I make tuition as it is...
The weather is totally shitty and the roads suck, so Im not going to drive 40 minutes to go to an hour of class then drive back. Plus all the area schools are getting out early due to the weather, so it would be be stupid and irresponsible of me to drive the class... or at least that's how Im going to justify it.
What do people who have computers but not the internet do with them? For some fucked up reason my computer has been without internet for the last 36 hours or so. It just came back on this morning and just in time. I have two papers that need to be worked on and all the research is online, plus I couldn't access what I did at school because I sent it all to myself via email... A computer without the internet is just as well off smashed to bits...
Iv been in a kind of strange mood lately, its not bad, but its not good either. I was stressing yesterday about not being able to do my papers and now here I am. What was the first thing I did once I found out my internet connection was back? I came here and wrote all this crap... Some priority wouldn't you say?
I rented the 40 Year Old Virgin yesterday. That movie is fucking hilarious. There was one downfall though that didn't have anything to do with the movie; my mom was all whining that she wanted to watch it too, so we caved and she watched it with me and my brothers, it was a whole family affair. Now I like to think of myself as a mature guy, but it doesn't matter how old or mature a person is, watching sex scenes with your parents is just uncomfortable...
Oh and another great thing to top my day off yesterday was that I left my lights on at school and my car died. I was stuck there for an extra 30 minutes trying to find someone to give me a jump...
Im sitting in the campus computer lab and there is this annoying fuck hole who is talking about how he had this party and people passed out in the hot tub and blah blah blah trying to impress this girl he sat down by. First off, you are the grossest gooniest looking mother fucker I have ever seen. Second, no one would go to your gay ass parties.... douche bag!!
This weekend was intensely boring. I didn't even drink. There was no one to drink with and I was informed that drinking alone wasn't the greatest idea... So oh well.
I met Gift yesterday afternoon, she is a very nice girl. I think its going to be fun having a sister for a while. I really like meeting people from different countries and different cultures, I find them fascinating.
My brandy went untouched this weekend... its a sad sad thing.
It appears that our family here will be getting a little bigger for a while. Some time after the holidays a foreign exchange student from Thailand will be staying with us for about 4 months. Iv never met her, Iv see her before, clay shown me who she is. But she seems very nice. Her name is Gift, or at least that's what people call her. Its going to be kind of weird the only girl who has ever lived with us is my mom.
Does this mean I cant walk around in my underwear anymore???
My fake college became a little less fake lately. I now can get on facebook.com, before I wasn't able to.
Citi turned down my application for a credit card. I read the reason why but all I saw was "sorry but we are douche bags and wanna piss you off, have a lovely day", anyways its beyond me now. I really don't care too much, it just means ill have to wait to get my camera.
Its been far too long from the last time iv been drunk, this weekend I think im going to change all of that...
I just picked up a bottle of Black Berry Brandy, now Im ready for the weekend!
People were driving 35 mph today and it totally pissed me off. Yea it was snowing out and blah blah blah, but fuck, they can go faster than that... I wouldn't have mind if I was already close to home, but the drive from school is already a 25 minute drive when I go 65 the whole way. Plus I was too busy working of my paper to eat any real lunch, so that just added to me getting mad at slow drivers.
I cant stand winter, nothing good comes out of it. We can still have all of our winter holidays without there being any snow or it being 10 below zero. I need to move out to California or something cause 18 years of this is about all I want to take! But now Im home and it's warm in here so it's all good... until I have to go back outside.
you know what really pisses me off? The fact that alcohol cant be purchased past nine at night. If anyone knows why that is, I would sure like to know cause I wanted to pick up a bottle of black berry brandy tonight when Jake and I went to BD but it was just past nine so we couldn't.
Jake's studio should be up and running within the next two weeks or so once all of his gear arrives. Once its up ill be helping out recording Tyger That Sleeps new record and possibly even do some vocals for it.
while driving home today this weird feeling came over me. i was looking at the road, but it was different somehow, i felt connected to everything; raod... car... snow... tree... etc, it was like i was taking it all in at once, i was seeing without looking. i cant totally describe what it felt like other then saying it was blissful. for that moment there was nothing and everything all at once. i tried to hold on to that feeling, but as soon as i reached for it, it was gone.
This morning it was -3F outside (about -19C). I couldn't fucking believe it... My car almost didn't start, that would not have been good; I was already running late for work cause I couldn't find my keys (they went through the wash...)
I actually went to math today, and its a good thing to, cause I found out I have a test on Friday and needed to pick up some papers. This just sucks cause now ill have to go to class twice this week.
I have to write a problem solving paper, its going to be on elderly drives and how they cant fucking drive. Come to think of it, that might just be the title...
My weekend turned out to be really good. Friday night Breanna came over and that was without a doubt the high point of the week :) . Saturday I got up at 10 cause I was up really late Friday night; Saturday night was shitty, I had to work and it snowed like crazy so driving anywhere was out of the question. And Sunday I chilled, did a little more cleaning, and worked out.
Iv been seriously thinking about what I want to do next year when I transfer. Im not yet sure on where I want to go yet, or what I want to do when I get there... But I still have time to figure that all out.
Ouch... I hurt, but in a good way. For some reason iv been working out a lot more. But then again, once is a lot more then never. Anyways I hurt from it, but that's good right? If Im sore, that means its working...
One of the greatest shows on TV is being cancelled. Yes, that's right, Arrested Development is being taken off air mid-way through their third season. Fox sucks!
Iv done it; for the first time in over 4 months I got my haircut. So im no longer having to brush hair out of my eyes.
Im on myspace looking through profiles and being really annoyed at the people who have huge pages that you have to scroll all over to see and read things. Also, the whole music video thing is annoying too. Im hitting here listen to music and I go to a profile and Im blasted with some fucked up song and because the page is soo fucking Huge I have to look all over to find out where the music is coming from. But I usually just get annoyed and close the window out.
Good old December. It never fails. Every year it comes back, and I cant stand it, its not the month that I don't like, its the fact that it reminds me of winter. Not that stepping out side doesn't do that already, but whatever. Soon enough it will be Christmas and I need to start buying gifts for a bunch of people. Usually I just get things for my family, seeing is that I never really had too close of friends. But this year Im thinking about going all out and buying lots of things for people.
Last night Breanna, Amber and I went to wal-mart and I picked up the shot glass checkers. Originally it was going to be a present for Jake, but then I decided I didn't want to wait for Christmas to use it, so I already opened it and checked it out. Its really nice, and the plus part about it is that even if you don't like checkers, you still get 24 shot glasses for $8.
I have my college algebra class three times a week, but lately iv only been going once a week. They are mainly re-touching me everything I was taught two years ago so I don't need to be there. Just for the tests.
I still need to get raymi's new book, Marketable Depression... but my money is too tied up in buying gifts for other people at the moment...
