Seriously, all it takes is for some to say "T Bell" or wave a burrito in front of my face, and I'm sold on where I'm going to eat.I honestly don't know why infomercials DON'T work on me.... but thank God!! I'd LITERALLY have no money anymore. Maybe my motivations are hunger based.......

Just have to vent a tad here. And consider this a PSA for advocating thoughtfulness.
It completely boggles me how inconsiderate some people are... Things that I perceive to be SIMPLE and COMMON SENSE end up neglected. Or just acts of stupidity, that an adult should know better, and they end up costing me.... Here are some examples...
While DJ'ing a wedding last weekend, here are a few taboos they committed:
-People not shutting the Hell up when the best man is giving his toast
-Walking BEHIND my DJ booth, to the point where i put cases in the way so they'd STOP
-Getting up to get dinner after i made CLEAR instructions that we'd dismiss tables
-placing a beer on my equipment?! That S*** spills, you're paying for it!!!
At what point does anyone think these things are okay?!?!
The other instance that comes to mind is someone i know who let me down...
I have a free weekend this weekend (Finally!) and inquired about going to visit someone down in St. Louis. I asked her on TUESDAY what she was doing this weekend. She said "Not much, why do you ask?" I say i want to come visit since i have some free time. NO RESPONSE FOR 2 DAYS...... Bad sign, I know... Thursday she finally replies "what day were you thinking?" So I guess coming Saturday and spending the night is COMPLETELY out of the question???? LOVE when people are so One-Dimensional with their thinking.... I tell her "I'm wide open Saturday and Sunday". If I'm gonna make a trip to St. Louis, I'd like to make it worth my while and stay for a while, If I'm gonna drive 5 hours round trip, let me stay for a while!!!
Again, takes until just this morning to say that Sunday would work best for her if I still want to come. Well since she was taking incredibly friggen long to answer me, I just got a hold of old college buddies and decided I'm going up to the Chicago suburbs to visit them instead. And I told her I'm doing that instead, and that she took too long............
Feel free to tell me if I'm out of my mind...... But how in God's name does it take you almost a full week to give me an answer?!?! I know it doesn't help the fact that I kinda have feelings for this girl, but FORGET THAT.... on a human to human basis, I feel like that's unacceptable.
Is this just what humanity has come too???? Is being considerate of people's time/effort/equipment/social well-being just a thing of the past????
If you read all the way through this I beg you..... just don't be a tool!!!! Not that you have to respond to people seconds later, but promptly reply to people in a reasonable manner... If someone's got expensive equipment, don't put S*** on it!!!! BASIC RESPECT PEOPLE..... That's all I ask.

I learned more about web coding in 3 DAYS with Codecademy.com than I learned in a 10 week course in college.............
I plan on making my own personal website to have employers look at, rather than being limited to one page of a resume. PLUS I'll get to add that I know how to make a website from scratch! Anything to stand out! My brother, who does web programming professionally and is a wizard at it, will help me out too.
Perhaps I'll post it here when I make it!
NE ways, How's er'body doin???? I still want to go back to Austin TX........ :/ :P

Concerning Nerds :P
OOOOH MAN!! ZOOOMG!!! HUZZZAAAHH!! *add excited shout here*
RTX 2015 was the best one thus far!! This was my 3rd year going. I'd be a 4th time consecutive member like @FableRunner4 but I had a friend get married the same weekend of RTX 2013. Never the less, he and his wife @alkina (first timer) and I had a stellar weekend!
Did the cocktail party/charity auction for the first time Thursday night. That's a MUST DO!!! Great atmosphere, incredible artwork. I bid on some Spartan Matryoshka Dolls, but my bid got blown out of the water :P. But we reconnected with Barbra, Caleb, & Matt, and met Kathleen for the first time! Real talk, Kathleen may be my new favorite RTX celeb. She's such a bad@$$!! more on her later in the journal (cause we saw her again!!!)
First day was mostly main floor, we did go to the Founding Fathers panel too. Joel snuck in early and did a pre-panel, that we aren't supposed to talk about.... oh wait..... My vote for funniest guy at Roosterteeth!
Saturday, we saw the Voice Acting panel, aaaaand Kathleen's panel about dealing with LIFE. There, she solidified herself As a BA MOFO! So encouraging, and thought provoking, if you ever get the chance to talk to her, don't pass the opportunity up.
That night, Video Game Orchestra and some other band... who was it.... oh yea, BARENAKED LADIES!!!!!! They played for us RTX goers at Paramount Theatre. Best free show i've ever seen! That alone surpassed the value of what the RTX weekend pass cost!
Then Sunday we walked the main floor one more time, bought a few things, then slooped into depression as we had to leave RTX and Austin :( :(........ But not before watching Joel and Adam play #KillAllZombies on the main stage! Too gooooood!!
Highlights of the weekend:
- Wore my Nic Cage shirt (see profile pic) Saturday, and got an assortment of reactions from it. Mostly positive. If any of you took a pic with me, PLEASE tag me in your pics :)
- Had Texas BBQ again
- Kathleen said I should be on TV
- Kathleen also called me handsome :D :D not even kidding!!!! That or she subconsciously placed Nic Cage's face on my face when she saw me for the 2nd time
RTX and Austin TX continue to amaze me. I want to move there!! Maybe the right job will find me one day.... Here's to hoping!
Pics from RTX to come!!!
Avid runner, aspiring broadcaster/voice over-er, AND all around good guy!?!? Love me some gaming (League of Legends, Assassin's Creed series, Skyrim, various sporting games, Super Smash Bros to name a few). Also, my eyes light up when I see a Frisbee fly through the air!
So send me a message and get to know me!!
Unless you're queer.... No wait, even if you're queer. No Jews though.... Okay, Jews.
