2 December 2008

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.

1 October 2008

Sadly, I never bothered to update anyone, including myself, on what happened in October (I’m writing this in December). I would imagine it would be more of the same boring school stuff, a brief thing with Morgan, and otherwise my job application to a local deli, Jimmy Johns. As well, I finalized my intent on studying in Australia.

6 September 2008

As usual, not too much is new. Putting things off.

At Bays with Emily

I’ve been going to the bar a bit more, but nothing major. I hardly meet anyone. Trinity is a pretty stagnant community and most of the people who come to stuff from outside the bubble are emo Mexican high school kids. Sort of sad.

A lot of work to be done this week. I haven’t started. So far, my highest grade has been a 73. What? Excellent!

Also, I want to go to Australia. But it’s expensive. I’m not sure what to do. It’s a sad situation. We’ll see.

And, I would rather just have job stuff work out. Leave this place. I’m done with it.

1 September 2008

Wow. Things have been moving so fast since I’ve got back to campus. From trying to get moved in, to meeting with old friends, to starting classes… it’s all been way too fast. That said, it’s nice to be back and get to see everybody. I sort of like my classes this year. Incredible change, for once.

Hard to believe I’m half way through though!

4 May 2008

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.

Way too much fun

I’m in the last stretch of finals. Just until May 10th and I’m released. I’ve had basically zero time to spend online, and even less time to enjoy myself.

That said, the release of Grand Theft Auto 4 is terrible with its timing. Last night I pulled an all nighter playing the game. I didn’t even mean to! It went from 12 AM to 9:50 AM in one sitting. I never moved.

This game is amazing. That said, I broke one controller already throwing it against the wall in frustration… whoops! But, most of that is my fault.

If you happen to own a 360 or a PS3, buy this game. You have no excuse not to.
