      It's this weekend for me. I really don't know how to feel. I still can't believe it has been ten years. So many things have changed...Well, it will be interesting at the very least. And here...we...go.

      I was up about twenty minutes ago...I have to bath, eat, and dress...To be at the stupid airport by 5:00. I haven't flown since 1999. California and Disney Land better be among the best things ever for this...I'm actually pretty excited!

      Sorry for being quite for a while. I've been busy work wise and I'm loving it. The days and weeks fly by. I finally appreciate time off. I know I could make more, but as of now, I'm happy. Other updates as follows...

      -My RvB secret Santa killed it this year. Thank you and sorry I didn't update sooner.

      -Haven't play many video games lately. Enjoyed DA:I and am looking forward to the plethora of awesome games this year starting with The Order: 1886 or whatever it is.

      -I will be moving this year. I make enough money now that I can afford it.

      -I've been reading a ton of DC's New 52. Mostly Green Arrow and Justice League,

      -Arrow and The Flash are my current favorite shows.

      -My parents purchased me a new laptop. I love it.

      -I'm actually "relieved" FSU finally lost...It was a great ride.

      If you have any other questions, let me know. Sorry for being out for so long.

      I guess I'll make another journal. I have nothing interesting to note though. I'm currently trying to juggle Destiny, FIFA '15, and the Mordor game...Before the new Assassin's Creed comes out...And the Halo collection...Seriously, it has been said before, but can they please space games out better? Put some in the summer? Anyway, if you have any of these and want help/want to help me, hit me up.

    • Another Dog Died

      5 years ago

      sphinxter

      It just never gets any easier. This one had cancer finally take him. I let him inside after going to the bathroom and finished a game of FIFA '14. I then went and found him laying down dead. My last words to him were, "Stop being stupid and get inside the house," because he was trying to walk down the stairs...Maybe he knew it was coming and wanted to die in the sun and I deprived him of that. I don't know. It just sucks too. My other dog won't even leave his side. I think he knew it was coming. Dogs are perceptive like that and he was sort of mopey all day long.

      RIP Peanut though. You were a good dog and a better dog than I deserved.

      Haven't posted a journal in a while. Nothing much too terribly interesting on my end. Just doing things. Same ole' same ole'. I'm excited for Titanfall. I'll actually be able to play my XBO for a game. I haven't played either my XBO nor my PS4 game wise in a while since there just hasn't been anything. Food is also still tasty. I also enjoy alcohol still. That's fun stuff. The weather blows donkey wang across the country. Done.

      Well, I watch the Achievement Hunter videos. But ever since they changed the layout of the website, I forget to check for journals because it's not on my main page which is why I never notice when you write something. But things are going...I would say well. I'm happy. Life is weird. It's hard to go into detail since the person who is causing this happiness is likely to see it here (assuming he would visit the site, which I doubt) but things are good. I hope everything is going well for you. smiley0.gif

      • sphinxter

        5 years ago

        Yeah, I still have plenty of free time overall, but I just don't want to do anything...like ever...I do things because I'm forced and/or feel obligated, but I don't really want to. In the end I'd rather be at home asleep on my couch after eating dinner.

        I'm willing to take the risk of that pressure for the opportunity to have such a fantastic job.

      • shadowfox92 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

        5 years ago

        I had that happen, but with me it was more because I didn't seem to have enough free time so I just couldn't figure out what I wanted to spend what little time I had on.

        I'm pretty sure they have that job. It seems like a lot of pressure to need to fall asleep though and doesn't sound as relaxing as it should.

      • sphinxter

        5 years ago

        That's the thing that I'm starting to enjoy it less and less. I'm getting to a point where pretty much everything bores the crap out of me...Like literally everything...work...video games...tv...books...It's rather fascinating and deeply disturbing at the same time. Meh, I'm sure it's just a phase.

        I'll never stop trying to do that. That's the dream. Just imagine, you fall asleep and then you wake up having made money. That would be amazing.

      • shadowfox92 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

        5 years ago

        I can't argue with you on the not hating your job vs having more money debate. I was really happy with my job, and yeah, I didn't make that much, but I'd rather have a job that wasn't killing me slowly. Of course, that turned out to be my downfall since they outsourced that position, and I got put back on the phones which makes me hate all things, but these things happen. So yeah, enjoying your job is important.

        Stop trying to sleep at work!

      • sphinxter

        5 years ago

        Yeah, I still have the same job. I haven't bothered seeking another one despite literally everyone I talk to on a daily basis telling me I'm wasting my time doing what I'm doing. I mean, I get it. I know I am. I know I could do more and I do want to make more money. However, I do enjoy where I work and what I do doesn't drive me insane, most of the time at least, and I think that's important...I mean seriously, even my boss said that I'm "Too smart to just be sitting there doing what I do" and she would like nothing more than to keep me around doing this job since it makes her life easier.

        And someone has to be testing the hammocks. There's no way they just release those untested to the public.

      • shadowfox92 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

        5 years ago

        Thank you, I'm hoping it continues too. ^_^ Also, um...I'm pretty sure being a hammock tester is not a thing. I'm pretty sure that's an excuse to sleep during work. Do...do you even have a job?

      • sphinxter

        5 years ago

        Yeah, that continues to confuse me as well. Although, in my case, there are few people posting journals period. So, it's rather irrelevant.

        Anyway, I'm thrilled to know to know things are going well for you. I hope that continues. I have no complaints other than my work refuses to allow me to become the official hammock builder and tester for the company. I think a travel insurance company could do great things with the knowledge of which hammocks are most comfortable and the only way to do that is to have me test them all out for like a month at a time.

      I'm less concerned about the individual sequels and more about the actual Avengers 2. Although Thor 2 getting an August release, and Captain American 2 getting a January release doesn't really inspire confidence. Oh well, I'm sure I'll love the Thor movie since I loved the first one and everyone else seemed to hate it. And Captain America can only get better since they have more to work with because of the out of time stuff. Avengers 2 though, what excuse will they have for getting everyone together again? And now that they're all buddy buddy and a good team, that kind of takes away some of the fun. I just want to see them fight everyone. Is that too much to ask?

      It's only blue when you're typing it. That's why it's annoying.

      Yeah, I'm not going to have any money. I'm not even going to have a job when I move down there. It's a bit of a gamble. But I've been waiting for my opportunity to move out for years, and my brother finally offered me one so I can either do what I always do and wait for something more convenient to happen for me (which clearly never happens) or I can take what I get. And I'm taking it.

      No, damnit! It's from the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. You're supposed to say "I don't know. Why, do you think it's the sort of thing you're likely to say?" And then I say "Drink up. The world's about to end." which is a fantastic line, now that I really think about it.

      I hate you so much for relating this to a song I love. Now how am I supposed to argue with you? Music that's relevant to me is my one weakness. Fine, I concede. I still think the one group is a lost cause, but I'll give it one more shot. But then I get to do it my way and move on because I can't keep putting myself through that.

      I know that nothing's going to happen unless I try. I'm so far behind at this point that I'm just...I don't even know. Honestly, I don't even know that I'd recognize a guy being interested in me at this point if there was one. Which I'm sure there has been in the past, but I'm just more confused why no one has ever said anything to me. Or like...asked me on a date or something. Pfft, the world. And that's my excuse. I'm not sure what yours is. I imagine it's better than mine because...you know, you have all this great advice, so surely you'd be taking it yourself unless there was a good reason not to.

      Also, yes, I thought you were talking about the movie Beetlejuice. So you can understand why I was so confused.

      I don't know if you're just not understanding what I'm saying or completely ignoring it, but we're clearly not going to agree on this. And I'm getting the feeling you think I'm overreacting, and I'm not.

      Thank you for changing that to you thinking it'll happen. I hate when people tell me of course I'll find someone. They don't know that, and them just saying that so I'll shut up is really annoying. The fact that you're thinking realistically about it is much more helpful than everyone else with their "helpful", cliche advice.

      My internet keeps eating my response, and it's making me mad. Especially since it's so hard for me to actually find the right words as it is. Stupid internet.

      The point is though, it shouldn't take this much effort for me to see my friends. I rarely ever get texts. There are maybe two people who will consistently text me, and other than that, I get nothing. And those two people are awesome. But the point is, if I don't talk to someone first then I usually don't talk to them at all because I'm the one that has to put in all the effort, and it shouldn't be that way. It's not that they don't care, it's just that they don't care enough. Not as much as me anyway, and that's what bothers me. I'm tired of being the one that cares.

      That was much better written and made my point much better the first two times, but at this point, I'm not even sure what I have and haven't said already so...you know, I can't be held responsible if it doesn't make sense.

      Also, seriously, Matt, you try being alone for 25 years. It is impossible for me to have confidence at this point.

      But if you know you would be happy with her, I don't see the problem. But I clearly don't know what I'm doing, so you probably shouldn't listen to me. smiley8.gif

    • shadowfox92 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      7 years ago

      Well, first of all, obviously you're right. And I'm awful at talking to people because I always feel like I'm bothering them. Which is just a weird little thing of mine that I know probably isn't the case. So that's my problem.

      However, what I'm talking about is more situations like this. I've been texting this guy who I thought I was good friends with over the past week. Just a few texts here and there, nothing too much. And I've asked him to hang out, but he hasn't answered at all. And yesterday he finally texted me back only to tell me to make sure I said "Happy half-birthday" to someone else. And then they went out with a couple of other people last night for a birthday celebration. He's a good guy too, so he's obviously not doing it on purpose. But every time I ask him to do something he tells me he doesn't have time. Except that he has plenty of time to see other people.

      Or how I see my other friend the day before, we talk about getting together and doing something, and I tell him to text me if anything's going on. I find out the next day that everyone else went over to their place and no one bothered to tell me. And that's something that happens multiple times with these people. I try, but they just don't care that much. So I'm done trying. And guess what, as soon as I stop texting them, I don't hear anything from them at all. Surprise.

      As for guys that want to date me? Yeah, those don't exist. I'm not even bothering with that one.

      A) Early, yes, but not premature. Seriously, the next generation of consoles was delayed and Microsoft (the only company that shows their hand when it comes to design direction) is obviously moving toward a more casual-friendly environment, at minimum. See Windows 8 and the current XBOX dashboard.

      B) All digital consoles are a super bad idea (business-wise) and no company is stupid enough to try it.

        Yeah, you did say something like that already, but thanks again. It isn't much of a job. It's just $10.75 an hour after everything is taken into consideration. It doesn't use my degree at all. $10.75 isn't horrible here though. It's decent actually. In NYC, that wouldn't get me by at all obviously. It's actually an eight to five, but I get an hour lunch. It isn't the greatest job in the world, but it's money and is honestly incredibly easy. Typically, the only real stressful part of my day is the drive to and from work in rush hour.

      You'd get off really easily if you had to buy alcohol for me. One bottle would way more than do it. But you'd also have to get me something to mix it with, and something else to add flavor. Which still isn't bad, obviously. At least I'd feel better about dying alone though. smiley8.gif

      I had a dream there was a snake crawling on my wall. It was not sneaky.

      Good. Now all I have to do is ensure one of the people who have promised me some of their lottery winnings actually wins.

      Looking online at some reviews of B&N's online ordering, lots of issues there. Taking it with a grain of salt, but still perhaps take some heed; if you got a confirmation email, maybe take a second look through it and see if there's any hang-up that was just overlooked.

      Anyway, I'm not especially worried. Unfortunately I'm heading to my parents' for the holidays and will be away from home for the next ten days... Assuming things don't come tomorrow, I will let you know if I find the package upon my return. :)

      Don't worry about it, the Canada Post mail beavers are sluggish and shitty around this time of year. They should give you a delivery estimate when you ordered, so be sure to contact them if it's past that date range. As for the tracking number, what service did you use to ship it? If standard shipping, it's likely USPS, you can try this. Or just check the Barnes & Noble site under "Order Status".

      Yeah, and I thought about it. The more I thought about it though, the more I realized I'm probably just not that interested. And I can't say for sure whether it's because I don't like the guy as much as I thought or that I just don't want to date anyone. Either way, I feel genuinely sick when I think about it so I'm taking that as a sign I should probably just end the thing.
