It's pretty massive for a dorm room

I had been meaning to update this. I’ve been home for almost a week, which is pretty legit. I’ve done nothing so far, which is also pretty legit. I’ve signed up for Netflix so I basically lay in bed watching movies all day for free on my huge TV. I can’t ask for a ton more, actually.

It’s surprising that I’ll be out of the country soon. I’m glad to be done with school for this semester. Between the horrible deli gig, my weird love life, and my shitty grades, it will be nice to move past that. Too bad this semester will kick my GPA’s ass. How awesome. I managed to do minimal work for most of the semester, but I actually did put in work to these upper level communication classes. But they all give B’s at best and C’s at worst. And I’ve been getting a lot of that worst stuff. I even withdrew from a class.

Is this what college is all about? Hating it? Learning nothing? Memorizing? I certainly hope not, but then again it keeps seeming this way more and more. When was it supposed to change? I should have went to a state school and coasted by.

Whatever, I hope that Australia is extremely awesome and it makes up for this bland semester. Tomorrow I may get to see someone I’ve missed. I want to take portraits.

It was.

So, now it’s already December. This semester is wrapping up. That is kind of nice, and kind of scary, as usual. The amount of work I have due on December 8th is pretty much ridiculous and I’m definitely not looking forward to it. That said, once I’m done I can go home and relax until early Febuary when I leave for Perth. It’s almost a done deal, and I can’t imagine what would stop it from going through. I’ve heard rumors that it’s a good situation for American guys. I will have to report on that later, though.

I’m quitting work on the 9th. I really haven’t worked much. They offered me a position as a night manager, but I doubt that I would really want to put up with the kids anyway. I’m the oldest guy there, which is sort of sad. The pay is horrible, but it was able to finance a lot of party goods and video games. I will be glad to quit, though.

As usual, I met another person who makes me happy. I sent her my camera. I hope she likes it. This girl is fascinated with birthdays, something that are rarely a big deal in my life. She goes to the extent of remembering half birthdays. In the period of one day, she sent me more cards than I’ve received in the last three or four years. That is pretty shocking. Cards are expensive too, so she must have went all out.

I think I may get some wine or something tomorrow. All we have is rum, which is fine, I suppose. But I do like being able to sip on alcohol instead of pounding shots. I should pick up some cigars too; make it a classy evening.

I’m in a genuinely bad mood lately. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s the lack of sleep or maybe it’s something else. Sometimes I just feel like laying in bed all day. I did this a lot during freshman year, but I think that was more drug induced laziness than I am now. I hardly do anything “bad” anymore. I don’t even drink much.

I talked to Logen again recently. After things went sour, I suppose things are held together enough to make it through the holidays on a speaking basis. I miss her. Of everyone on this planet, she knows more about me. And, ironically, she’s been a relatively small portion of my life. A good friend, and definitely one I couldn’t ever stand to lose.

Work wore me down. It’s time to go to bed.

Josh putting on a funky face disguise

I’m home from work sick today. It’s not really a big deal, but I happened to get it from my coworker Josh. Currently, adding to my sickness, I have a bad sunburn from a shoot in Ft. Stockton on an oil rig that makes me look like a raccoon (because I was wearing glasses all day). Sort of embarassing.

Work is almost over. Next Wed. on the 20th I’ll be quitting work and moving back to San Antonio for another year. I also have the deviantART prospects finally coming through (or so it seems).

I found a very special girl recently. I think things will be good. I think about her all the time, pretty much nonstop.

Wow, okay, so this has been an update a long time coming. I have to say that it wouldn’t have happened without Fiona prompting me all the time. I guess true love is a good motivation, huh? It’s actually nice to have someone remind me to do this because I seem to forget. One time a month is likely to be the only time I update. That said, nothing really happens in my life that’s all that interesting.

But, this month has been full of the usual stuff that you’d expect from summer: working 80 hours or more a week. It’s fun being back, although I’m being gimped a bit in pay. I still have a lot of fun though, and the job isn’t that bad. I suppose I’d rather have that than the the telemarketing company that keeps sending me letters for two dollars more an hour. Even then, I get to take flexible breaks and leave when I want to.

What a pimp

I guess the theme of this post is Fiona. I’m glad to have her talking to me! She’s a sweetheart! ❤ If only she wasn’t in Scotland, but then she wouldn’t have the accent. Tradeoffs! I plan to visit one day though. Maybe reinact highlander (which was filmed in New Zealand).

I’ve actually managed to spend all the money I have. I spent a ton on a new laptop and a grill for my dad. He deserves it though. And, I mean, come on, who will turn down grilled food?

That’s about all that’s going on really. Nothing important, besides intense love for Fiona. Oh, and deviantART stuff, but I’ll talk about that when the time comes!

I think I have a problem

Well, it’s finally May and I’m almost done. Just this week of finals and I can go home and relax for a day before I start work. Hopefully I make a ton of money this summer to cover next year’s purchases. The biggest setback in terms of money this year hasn’t even been party expenses but rather videogames. I probably bought 6 games (6 x 60 = 360 dollars!) and I think I came into school with about 180 dollars. Weird how I managed that one. Lots of well placed bets and credit card payments. That said, I recently bought Grand Theft Auto 4, which happens to be amazing. It really threw off my ability to get these final papers done. On top of the already huge feelings of indifference towards these classes, along with the desire to get out of school at all costs, this game has come along and crushed any will I had to work. I will probably be suffering the consequences of this later, but I don’t really find myself caring. I just want out.

In other news, that special girl I found turned to not be so special. Figures. This sort of thing always happens. Reading this journal is like a comedy because I always mention people who end up being little importance in my life. I suppose that Logen has been my most dependable real life friend. She’s been with me since 2003 and she still hasn’t got rid of me. I miss her.
