      I love watching a heavy storm from the start. The way the water starts to create unknown paths across the mulch/grass/streets.

      I like to think of it how God (or for those who don't really believe, the great spaghetti monster in the sky) sees the earth. It may only take seconds for miniature lakes and rivers to form across the ground, but that's how I imagine how quickly earth and it's rivers and lakes form for Him/Her, years being only seconds. So for me, it's the closest I get to see a whole world created in only an instant.

      I keep reading articles about can Dark Knight Rises beat out Avengers? Who cares? Seriously, this is an amazing summer for movies. Prometheus and DKR coming up, and I'm even excited for Snow White and the Huntsman.

      Tubing, kayaking, surfing and movies? This will be the best summer in years for me.

      For one night I was a very happy man. Last night that is. There was a lot of alcohol involved, a lot of dancing and a really intense time. My coworker and I were able to let go of all the bs holding us back and we had an awesome night. Waking up this morning though, I knew immediately it wasn't going to last. At least I finally got her to talk about it and I know the circumstances holding things back.

      I need to figure out what to do with my life, the fact that everything in my life feels stale, until last night leaves a real bad taste in my mouth. I just don't know what to do next except hope that I meet someone who can change that, and that leaves a bad taste in my mouth too. It's not enough.

      I know, I know, I could just watch the travel channel and get some inspiration. But c'mon, that channel doesn't give anything more than some generic tourist traps.

      Tell me the places that you feel like is a perfect little secret corner of North America worthy of just a day or even a week.

      This isn't just a hypothetical, I'm going to be looking at these for some real inspiration.

      Hopefully one way or another I find out what's going on today. I asked my coworker out and she excitedly said yes, but we haven't worked together for a few days, and our phone conversations/texts have been great till it gets to the point of setting a night for it. Little frustrating, and I'm an optimistic sort, but I'm not holding out a lot of hope.

      It's a complex situation that could turn bad if I'm not careful, so I don't like things floating.

      I need to buy a keyboard, I love my bass, but I'd love to have something I could just play out songs, record, mix and overlay on. This website is just a fun little toy though

      If it wasn't for my british roommate translating this movie, I'd have no idea what the fuck was happening in this movie.

      I'm having a real problem right now. This year has been all about new experiences, and I've loved it. But in response, all my usual loves are just boring now. I need to bring some balance back to things or else I'll be out doing something that'll lead to a concussion or an empty bank account. It's happened before, it'll happen again if I'm not careful.

      So my coworker and I decided to spend some more time together despite company policy. Normally I resist these kinds of things, but she's just.... brilliant. Normally this isn't even a huge issue, many of my peers hang out with some of their coworkers, they just keep it on the low, but dating is a bit more difficult. Here's to hoping for the best, no matter which way things go. Just need to be adult about it.

      I'm a little nervous to start living on my own next week :/
      With the alarm & my dogs though, I know I'll be safe at least, lol

      The move's been going smoothly smiley0.gif

    • saygoodnight

      10 years ago

      Yes! I'm really excited!
      It's gonna be me & my best friend ^_^
      The best part is that there's enough room in the house to entertain guests & still have personal space.

      I'll def let my dad know you said that smiley0.gif
      He's been really stressed about the job for a while, like you were too, I'm sure.

      Haha I think its kinda funny how you both, even though you were looking for dif positions in companies, lost work at the same time, then kept running into the same problems job wise & then found work around the same time.
      Seems like something I'd watch on the Twilight Zone or something.

      Yeah I live in the middle of no where right now but I'm taking a week off and going to spend it in the city.
      Also I havn't played War in a while because my video card can't handle being in the main cities and playing RvR lags a bit too much but I'm probably going to be picking up a new video card in the next few weeks. I think you can get a bonus for your account when I start paying for mine again if you send me a re-invite. I'm not sure but it would probably be worth looking up.

      I can understand that.. I figured that in the marshlands, if you watch your back, you can set traps for turtles & frogs which would give you fresh meat to eat, that way it's not just canned foods. The hardest part would be the underwater zombies. I'd keep the crossbow in case of a passing doe, for the same reason as the turtles & frogs.

      My parents aren't as worried as me.. smiley3.gif ..... smiley4.gif

      My mom is denying her true feelings though because she's told me before that she believes in them.. But she just believes in the voodoo zombies, not viral..

      Oh no! Lol, It gets so much better ^_^

      I think if my parents get a place in FL like they want for retirement, than I'll be making my way down there when shit goes down..

      How've you been? Any word yet?

      Awesome! It's on netflix?

      & as for the lack of rest, I suggest going to the local herbal store & buying some kava kava in liquid form & mixing that with a little water before bed.

      That helped me in high school on days before & after tests

      Nice! I wanna watch someone play though the game :/

      No one I know #1 has the guts to play the game or #2 is willing to wait until I can watch to play...

      I may try to play again in a while.. I just hate the limited ammo

    • saygoodnight

      Haha nice!

      I get that way too.

      I tried to play FEAR but the shooting & ammo aspects of it kept messing me up.. The bad guys don't die as easy as I wish they would lol

      Dude, that's awesome! I'll cross my fingers for ya!

      My dad just went in for a third interview on Friday & filled out all the pre-hiring paperwork, so it looks like he'll have a job soon as well.

      CC screwed so many ppl over when they had to close but at least things are now seeming to open up job wise.
      We'll see though. Best we can do is try & wait, right?

      I need to get some new multi player online games. I don't want to trade in L4D until I get all the achievements but it's getting pretty lame.. It's helps when I need to blow off a little steam though lol. Just running into the middle of a hoard, pistols firing & pipe bomb in hand ^_^ smiley12.gif

      What are you playing these days? Found anything good?

      I'm still (slowly) working my way through Portal when I remember I have it, lol.

      I was in no bands, I just played by myself...All My friends say I should join or start one. I tend to play songs by ABR, Blessthefall, or Alesana. I've been playing for four years.

      Lol, bummer for him.

      Things are going.. That's mostly all though. I'm just hoping that the work week goes by quickly. I have Jury Duty next week & I'm actually looking forward to it, mainly cause it means I'll get to sleep in compared to when I normally wake up.

      What about yourself? How's the job hunt going?

      Awesome ^_^ That gives me hope that I'm not over exaggerating the truth to myself
      My friend is in the military & he got us not only 5 day passes to all four parks in Orlando for $100 but he's got a friend with a time share that beds 8 & they're letting us use it for $80 a night & it's inside the park.
      I was stunned when he told us that & signed up right away lol
      After looking at the normal prices (from the gate) my jaw dropped.

      My dad's still looking for a job too :/

      I can't wait! I really am getting super excited about it. I really hope I don't get over excited & end up disappointed though.
      My parents would never take me as a kid & I always wanted to go just for the hell of it & now my friends are going & the timing couldn't be better ^_^
