      Well! Howdy!

      So, world's fastest recap.

      I'm a college graduate, working towards a bachelors in business to open my own coffee shop.

      I currently work for Starbucks.

      I recently discovered that I've spent the last ten years of my life being an asshole, so I'm working on that.

      And I'm in a committed relationship with my partner of nearly six years, who is a non-binary genderqueer pansexual who is super into RoosterTeeth and AH.

      Woo eleven years!

      So I just got back home.

      My work shift typically ends around 9:30 at night, when the mall closes.

      I was packing up the store getting ready to leave when one of the other mall workers named Amanda comes up and asks what I'm doing. Nothing, I say.

      That's when she asked me to come see the Iron Man 2 early showing with her at 10:30

      I am just -now- stumbling home.


      I will reveal nothing.

      Jeez, where to begin?

      Well I'll avoid women for starters, cause that story is -way- too complicated, even for me, and I'm the one who was there lol.

      Well I'm still at Montgomery College, working on getting my credits for my teaching major. Been working as an intern in several middle schools around the county, getting used to the field. I'm really loving it a bunch smiley1.gif .

      Working at Caribou Coffee, which is like Starbucks but -better- because I dare you to find someone who can make a more bad-ass latte. Its not much, but hey, it pays for the fun things in life.

      Other than that, not much to say that I can think of. I'm off to guitar class!

      I'll be catching up with all of your journals later, I hope smiley12.gif

    • Of Alcohol and Anonymity...

      10 years ago

      LinkMasta Sgt Koprulu

      I've been doing a lot of inner reflection lately.

      First off all, I broke up with my girlfriend last Thursday. It wasn't working out. I was making excuses just to get off the phone, and I only said I love you back just to keep her happy. Clearly, that's a bad sign in any book. It ended alright, we still talk, even though its a little strained.

      I've had the house to myself for the past 6 days since my family left for Florida. This has left me lots of quiet time to sit and think, which allows me to meditate, something I haven't really done in a few months. Really, almost a year ><.

      Meditation is a very deep and spiritual process. Its like sitting down at a table with yourself in a tranquil forest or peaceful place, drinking a cup of tea, and discussing recent events with your double. Not in anger or joy, just in a light casual tone. Its very comforting, and yet at the same time, weakening.

      A good friend of mine told me a few days ago that,

      "Its one thing to acknowledge you have problems. Accepting them as part of yourself, on the other hand, is a lot harder."

      She's quite right.

      I know that I have problems with self-sacrifice, and taking what I want. I know I have issues with confidence and self esteem. I know I put myself in situations that I really shouldn't be in. I know these things. However, it will be some time before I can truly accept them and move on from them. I know that I will never stop being self-sacrificing in my actions, because I have so much to give. I've been so lucky compared to some, that it is only fair that I give all that I can. Because if I don't who will?

      *shakes head*
      Sorry, I've been really deep this past week. ><

      So, Hello everyone.

      So here's a brief sum up of everything I've done since my last post 3 months ago.

      Girl I liked in last post ran home to Switzerland.
      Started going out with a girl I've been friends with for 5 years or so. Note. She lives in Ohio. Far away land.
      My car was totaled in a collision, no injuries to any party.
      My boss fired me because I no longer had a reliable way to get to work.
      My girlfriend is incessantly needy and calls me 10 times a day so we can spend 2 hours on the phone and not say a single word of intelligent conversation.
      And I've started growing a beard again.

      So, to summarize:

      I'm trapped in a relationship, jobless, with no future aspirations, and I look homeless.

    • My Karma Ran Over My Dogma ><

      10 years ago

      LinkMasta Sgt Koprulu

      Have you ever had one of those days that made you question the fabric of existance, and who is really pulling the strings up there?

      Yesterday was one of those days, in the sense that I would love to watch a recording of it, because I know it would have been hilarious. It went from good to bad, back and forth, all day.

      Lets start:

      I wake up to a woman kissing me tenderly. That, I believe, is the best way to wake up. She's the girl I met the night before, who took me to my room. No details are necessary.

      Good.

      Its then that I realize that I was supposed to be at work in downtown D.C. at 11:30, and its 11:25.

      Bad.

      I jump up out of bed and and run to my car, which has a full tank of gas.

      Good.

      10 minutes later, my car stalls out on Conneticut Avenue, 15 minutes away from work.

      Bad.

      I manage to get it running again, and make it work 5 minutes after opening. I tell the owner what happened (the car stalling part at leat smiley8.gif ) and she forgives me.

      Good

      An hour later, the yogurt store runs out of yogurt. While full of customers.

      Bad.

      We make more, I leave at 5, and get home alive.

      Good.

      I find that the girl I woke up with left for her friend's place. In Kentucky.

      Bad.

      Fate is a fickle mistress. There is no better way to please her than to trip and fall on your face, break your nose, only to discover that you land blood face first on a hundred dollar bill.

      Karma.

      Joking, joking.... this will be the only surgery I've ever had as well, or at least the only one I'll remember. Had stuff done right after I was born I guess, since I was premature and had some complications.

      So very true on the money part, and insurance sure beats having to pay for it out of pocket. The only guy nurse I had mentioned that the surgery tends to run around $30,000 on average.

      Aye, too true. Drama seems to find us... Oh well. I just have to deal with it. It isn't anything huge. Just depends on my mood I guess. Sometimes I feel helpless to change what is going on... And other times it is no problem.
      Hahahahhaha.... I consider myself an amateur writer...... Especially when it comes to poetry. But, thank you, that is very nice of you to say! I have a writing itch at the moment... After this I am going to go write......
      Speaking of responsibility.... I skipped my Bio Lecture today.... I slept in. oops. I'll just read the text book...
      I am in an America Literature class called "Ideologies of the Child" and we talk about how children are becoming more adult like because they have no boundaries at gaining knowledge via TV, internet, reading, ect. It is a really interesting class... I was reminded of it when you said "the more we know the harder it is to avoid trouble". hmm.
      I like Guild Wars. It's free. HAH!

      ^_________^ Hey, thanks man. I am flattered that you think my comments are witty and intelligent. Thats probably the best compliment I can get from a friend. So, you have officially made my day. I admire your selflessness, I know I couldn't handle that. I do try my best with my friends and I have had my fair share of drama. But I think I have moved past all that. And I have made decisive moves to keep myself away from personal drama as well as that from others. Its unhealthy for me... However... My writing, poetry in particular, was quite something if I do say so myself. Haha. And from what I've noticed the same could be said about you. ^o^ Its funny though, all this talk about drama, these last few weeks have been tough on me... And I felt drama creeping its way into my life... Right now... I am anxious....

      Well put. I still plan on keeping it, and finishing it. Let's just say I won't be entirely disappointed if it doesn't turn out how I hope. I'm fully anticipating having to do it again. If I don't have to, at least it'll be one less thing to do!

      And thanks! The thing is pretty friggin tiny, but I mostly just got it for the look. Not many would be able to tell the difference, anyway. But, as you said, I do plan on upgrading it in the future.

The band I chose for this round was just because I was listening to them, they are definitely not my favorite, but I do like them, because they're fun ^o^ And I can flail to their music. (yes, flail, apparently I can't dance, so I stick flailing)

      The health packs weren't available from the store as far as I saw. Plus the ammo would be easier to get on an easier difficulty, but we were playing on the medium difficulty which is basically like the normal mode and we had little to no ammo. The stores were always so far away and all we really ever got was limited Pulse Rounds, like one or two from a whole bunch of enemies. That pissed us off to no end because we had to smack down our enemies more so than shoot them.

      Character development is a big chunk of the game which is why I was majorly disappointed. I couldn't connect well to the main character because of how unrealistic he was. There were like no cutscenes showing you how he acts and feels through out the game either which left him as an empty space. And your allies were no better, same with your overly religious enemy who, as I have said, comes out of nowhere and becomes your enemy. That's not the way to introduce an enemy IMHO. To me, the characters were basically sloppily created and had no depth to them at all. I couldn't relate to them because none of them showed anything to their personalities besides panic, frustration, sorrow and or a huge ego. There's more to people than just those emotions, even in the circumstances of the game. And the fact that everyone died is a turn off too.

      Plot development was thin and the game more so consisted of running around after minuscule items for your objectives. It was always a search and find for 90% of the game which in turn leads to the plot being dragged out and interest lost quickly. Then the whole betrayal was seen coming a mile away (thanks to the chapter title) which ruins that surprise of the plot.

      The predictability is stereotypical for most games that are supposed to be like Dead Space but other games have done better with not having it be so consistent. Yeah, the living dead attack out of no where, but they don't need to do it every time you get past a checkpoint in the game. This is why I didn't find it scary, because you knew what to expect. And the bad music was always a tip off too. :/

      Enemy designs, graphics and gore/sound effects were great though. But in my opinion, that's all that was enjoyable. A game with such poor characters and a dragged out plot tends to ruin it.
