      Today is my last day here at PC Consultants. I put my 2 weeks just under 2 weeks ago, and due to my strange work week I only had to work 1 day this week. I will then be hired on full time at Ravitron, and I've already gotten my first payed holiday with them smiley0.gif . I can't say I'm exactly thrilled about it... in a way it's a form of chosen slavery... but it does have it's perks so if I continue to keep a positive attitude, I should be able to keep myself from going completely insane smiley8.gif .

      The thing that worries me most is that I've only had part time jobs that didn't require much of me... and now I'll be hired on full time to a place that is willing to train me, pay for classes, and use me as much as I'll let them. Overtime is very easy to come by.... Unfortunately I really don't give a rat's ass about overtime since I enjoy my free time immensely.

      Hopefully I continue to learn and catch on quickly, not having another job to worry about should help me keep more focused. The good news though, is that if I get a couple raises, I should be able to afford some form of internet at home (sometime after I fix the heat in my car).

      Things with my parents have smoothed out a bit. I finally know where my mother lives and have had dinner with her a couple times. And this Wednesday I'll be having a congratulatory dinner at her apartment with Sonya and Amber to celebrate my new full time position at Ravitron. Dad's still a little down, but he's making good progress. He's finally stopped calling her.

      I'm sorry for not being able to check everyones journals like I would like too. Please feel free to fill me in on what's been happening in your life when you leave a comment. I'll throw in an extra mod point to anyone who puts forth the extra effort smiley1.gif .

      I hope everyone is doing well, and I hope the next few weeks really fly by.

      Love, ^.=.^

    • Life in a New World

      11 years ago

      Whedabra

      Ok, so the world really isn't new.... it just feels like it right now smiley1.gif .

      Today marks the end of my first week out of my Dad's (formerly my parents') house and in the duplex. The first couple of nights were tough, but now it feels more like home. I'm the only one in the house that knows how to cook, so I'm slowly accumulating ingredients and cooking utensils so I can make something other than spaghetti smiley0.gif . We've also worked out a cool "chores list" I cook on occasion, Alex does dishes and/or cleans the kitchen, and Severn cleans the bathroom. Thus far this scheme has worked out nicely, though I expect it will be altered slightly as time goes on.

      Everyone's probably noticed that I've not been online much.... well that's because we have no internet at the duplex smiley3.gif . I thought it would be terrible, but I've been so busy lately that I've not really thought about it much. Both my jobs are using me more now, so I don't usually have much time to screw around on the internet on company time either smiley6.gif . But the good news is.... that being the case.... I'll be making a bit more money, and thus will be able to buy myself some winter gear (and perhaps fix the heater in my car) the next couple of weeks smiley0.gif .

      I'm currently doing laundry at Dad's house, and using the internet here, but unfortunately this luxury will be short lived since Mom's discontinuing the internet service here (dad doesn't use the computer anyway). So now if I ever want to get online when I'm not at work, I'll have to visit my mom (who does not have a washer/dryer at her apartment), and I still don't know where exactly she lives.

      I've also finally gotten my new license! The picture is awful, as I think I've mentioned, but I'm happy to have it nontheless. Personally I'm doing pretty well, my friends have been very supportive (both online and in RL), and have really helped me keep my last few shards of sanity. Because of this I've also been able to continue to be supportive of my father, who also seems to be doing quite a bit better now than he was a couple days ago.

      I miss you all, and hope everyone is doing alright. If I'm not busy at work today I'll try and catch up on my alerts..... And if I don't get the chance, just remember that I've not forgotten or abandoned anyone, and that I think about you guys often smiley12.gif .

      Love (yes I said wrote "love"),

    • 21

      Yesterday before work I quickly rushed to the Secretary of State to get my license renewed. It's always been in my nature to procrastinate when I don't feel like something is pressingly important.... and up until the day before my license expired, getting it renewed really wasn't that pressing. Well, that's taken care of, and I hate my new picture....then again, I'm in dire need of a haircut, so no matter how many times they may have taken it over I would have never been happy with it. It'll probably be a couple more days before it arrives through the mail.

      Now today really doesn't feel any different from the other days proceeding it. In fact it wasn't until around lunchtime I even remembered it was my birthday. I'm finally 21 and able to partake of alcohol legally smiley1.gif . Another odd fact is that even though it is my 21'st birthday, I'm typing this from my bedroom floor while taking a break from packing my things up. I should start moving my things over to the duplex later tonight or tomorrow. Can't say I'm particularly looking forward to it, but once again I tell myself that it's a necessary step. I guess it just feel like bad timing.... but I've been putting it off for long enough already.

      *sigh*

      In other news.... I think I'm going to be getting a Dell computer. Now all I have to do is order it XD. Thank you all for your suggestions smiley0.gif .

      R-Evolution: 01:Awakening
      Author's Comments:
      I've never written anything involving anthromorphic wolves or anything with homosexual themes before. I'm not a professional writer, I just do it in my free time, so all constructive criticism is welcome :D As it stands this is a rough draft, but I have a bad habit of not revising anything until more of the project is finished, so there still may be some lingering grammatical errors, unfinished thoughts, and minimal details, so please bear with me.

      R-Evolution: 02:Realization
      Authors Notes:
      I'm trying to improve my writing technique and style. Hopefully this second chapter in the story reflects the progress I think I'm making. I spent nearly twice the amount of time on this chapter than I did on chapter one, and I have to admit I'm also much more pleased with the results. I hope you enjoy it! And all feedback will be greatly appreciated.

      R-Evolution: 03:Human
      Author's Notes:
      This chapter feels like a train wreck to me. I guess that's what happens when your foolish enough to write it all in one long sitting. I shall refrain from doing that in the future. I've revised this chapter twice, and have since given myself a headache, so I've decided to go ahead and post it as is. So hopefully everyone who reads this will be able to look beyond my own ineptitude and enjoy the story I'm attempting to tell.

      R-Evolution: 04:Pack
      Author's Notes:
      Once again the proofing/editing of my writings has been cut short. In a way I suppose it keeps me from overdoing it.... though I'm sure there are still a few things I would like to change around a bit. Due to the evens that cut my proofing/editing short, I probably won't have a chance to do much writing the next week or two. So I apologize in advance to those of you who enjoy reading this story, it may be a while before Ch. 5 is ready for posting. I hope you enjoy it ^.=.^

      R-Evolution: 05:Life
      Author's Notes:
      I'm not sure I was able to give this chapter the undivided attention it deserved. I had specific goals in mind when I began writing it, and unfortunately didn't achieve all of them. One of those goals however was to improve the quality of the yiff scene (which was somewhat disappointing back in Ch.2), and I think I've definitely improved as far as that goes ^.=.^

      This could be the final chapter in this series, I have more ideas, but I would like your honest opinion as to weather I should continue the series or move on to other things.

      I will continue to update this journal as the chapters are finished.

    • Painting Done

      11 years ago

      Whedabra

      This last weekend I spent the bulk of my time helping to paint the duplex. This was actually the first time I got to see it for myself as well. The living room was an terrible shade of blue, which took 3 coats of cream colored paint to cover, the other rooms were either green, blue, or tan, and they each got painted over with 2 coats. After the painting I helped Alex move most of his and Carly's stuff into his/their room. We took all the furniture and appliances out of storage, and assembled some new chairs tables and lamps.

      The place is much bigger than I thought it would be. The 2 bedrooms are average, but the bathroom and living room are both impressive. I'm thankful for this since I will be partitioning a chunk of the living room off with room dividers to create my bedroom when I move in. Severn gets the other bedroom, he got dibs on it, that's why I'm stuck with the living room. Rend isn't bad either, I only have to pay $130 a month, so I'm very happy about that.

      Hopefully now I'll be ready and able to move in within the next 2 weeks. I'll keep you all posted on the progress smiley1.gif . I'm not sure how well I'll adjust to not having my own real bedroom, so I've got my sister and her girlfriend out apartment shopping. I agreed that if they found a 2 bedroom place for around 200 per person....or less if possible.....I'd be willing to split the cost and move in with them.

      So who know what the future will bring!

    • Insomnia

      11 years ago

      Whedabra

      So.....what does the accumulation of "awake" time have on the human body from 4 nights of insomnia? I don't really know, but I know how it has effected me smiley6.gif . Most of you know that I've been attempting to write a decent Science Fiction/Fantasy novel for quite some time now, and making very little progress I might add. Well as of 11pm last night, I've begun writing my 3rd story. This one may not actually be a real book, but it should be a good sized story. I'm not ready to reveal much about this 3rd story, much like I'm not keen on divulging info on my 2nd story. But I'll tell a few things.

      Story 2:
      The title is "The Pawns of Jericho."
      It's a Survival/Horror story with character development (hopefully)
      I have 1.5 chapters in rough draft format.

      Story 3:
      The title is "R-Evolution" (for now anyway).
      It's a Science Fiction, character driven, possibly somewhat erotic story, oh and it has an anthromorphic wolf as the main character.
      I have nearly 1 chapter written (this chapter is longer than the first chapter of the second story).

      Aside from the unusual creativeness, I've also managed to get myself ICC Certified as well smiley0.gif . I'm just waiting on the written confirmation to be sent through the mail!

      Supposedly the duplex is ready to be moved into, so I may or may not be moving out this weekend. As of yet I don't even know what the place looks like, so I may not actually want to move in when it's said and done......perhaps this has been adding to the insomnia.

      I fear that with my mind divided into so many places that I won't be able to give any of my projects the due attention they deserve......I guess time will tell.

      I've also managed to fall behind on my alerts, I'll try and catch up when I'm not so frazzled.

    • Tagged...

      11 years ago

      Whedabra

      I'm told I must do the following:

      1. Post these rules:
      2. Each person tagged must post 10 random facts about themselves
      3. Tags should write a journal of these facts
      4. At the end of the post 6 more persons are tagged and named
      5. Go to their profile and leave a comment telling them they're tagged (I'm far to lazy to do this though smiley6.gif )

      ok, here we go...

      1. I've started writing a new book (putting my current sci-fiction/fantacy novel on hold). This one is a survival/horror story, I have the name fore it, but I won't be announcing it just yet.

      2. I will be moving out either this weekend or the next.

      3. I will most likely be sleeping in the living room in the new place.

      4. The first video game I can recall playing is "Age of Empires at my friends house.....or maybe the original Sim City."

      5. Currently I'm munching on Skittles and M&M's both at the same time.

      6. My parents and I made Sweet and Sour chicken last night smiley12.gif .

      7. I will be in Chicago on Wednesday getting certified for work related stuffs.

      8. I need to buy some new boxers!

      9. My sinuses are giving me hell today smiley5.gif .

      10. I am obsessed with dragons (but most of you already know that, I just felt it needed re-emphasized).

      I'm not entirely sure who's been tagged already (other than nudge1) so I'll throw out some names. If you've already been tagged then don't worry about it.

    • My Rotten Tomatoes Review

      Resident Evil: Extinction
      smiley9.gif7/10

      I went to the theater not really knowing what to expect of this film. I adore the first Resident Evil, and love Apocalypse, but I honestly didn't know how they were going to make Extinction work.
      To my relief, I wound up very much enjoying this segment of the Resident Evil saga as well. I didn't find fault with the acting as many of the critics did, or with character development for that matter. Honestly this is first and foremost a kick ass zombie movie, and isn't required to be emotionally moving as some people seem to think it should be.
      My only true complaint is that this movie didn't seem long enough. The climactic battle was ok, but could have been much better, and the "cliff-hanger" ending could have been translated into an additional half-hour to an hour of extra show time that could have neatly wrapped the whole thing up.
      Alas!! It looks like I'll have to wait until Resident Evil 4 comes out.....if it ever does.

      The Verdict:
      If you liked the first 2 films, this one will feel like a natural addition to those. If you didn't like the first 2 films, chances are good this movie will do nothing for you then. Personally I can't wate to see it again!

      I couldn't get into Dead Rising. I thought it was going to be awesome.....untill the first boss battle where no matter how many times I shot the dude in the head his health would only decrease by a tiny fraction.....and then when the second boss hit me, and I had the same problem.....it ruined it for me. But I'm tough on games like that, the ones that are supposed to be sooooo realistic, and then they destroy the feeling with damn boss battles.

      The first boss battle with Carlito...*shudders* that very nearly ruined it for me, and I guess you're talking about Adam the psycho clown as the second one. Well, they are incredibly ridiculously annoying, but I encourage to keep trying some time, it gets a lot better once you get into it and start unlocking stuff.
