Life or Something Close

I bought it!

So I bought this bad boy last night and let me say that it is absolutely amazing! I love it already. i haven't taken any really good shots yet but I haven't been up that long today. It's tiny, but a good tiny. Lots of features and all that junk. I think it'll be perfect for NYC in a few weeks.
I have so much studying to get done today. Every class seems to have som ekind of project coming up that I'm just not in the mood for. I mean, why are they all due at once adn why are they all so weird and unrelated really? I dunno, I should go study, more to come later

Go away!

What the hell, can't you just go away and not come back? No one has ever expected or asked anything of you but yet you can't go away. You made deal with the devil herself and now you're screwing up everyone else's life. You've ruined in the last two days what took over 10 years to build. And now it's gone. I wake up this morning though to even better news, you also turned your protege in to a snoop. One of the few people that I thought would never snoop on me did, and admitted it, she admitted that she did it for you. Never again. I know whats been done, trust me, there will be a day when all of this will come to be paid. I will be sure to be there to collect it. You're playing mind games, she's your sheep, stop acting like you've changed and you're innocent. I know what you've done, I know what you are doing, I'm not the little kid that you remember as. I've gotten hard over the years to all of your bullshit and i'm personally tired of you ruining her and my lives. You aren't going to do what you've said, you are just going to screw it up again. And this time instead of going down alone you're going to take her with you. Its not fair, she still has a chance, let her have hers before you ruin another life.
The last few days have been pure hell for me. School sucks, life sucks (see above), erin and I had a fight (kinda, but it's all better now), I'm just sick and tired of all this crap all the time. You know once things are just starting to go really go again, people have to come back and ruin it. Always. I'm ready for the weekend but I know that's just going to bring more problems, it always does. SB is coming up in 6 weeks and honestly I can't wait. I'm just tired of people all over my back fro crap that I just don't' want/have to deal with at that moment. Oh yeah and another thing, don't lie to me, someone always finds out when you lie.

...and dog-gone-it, people like me

It's been "one of those days" for the last few days really. I feel like Stuart Smalley sometimes, things just not working out the way that I had hoped they would Thank fully all is well now, well at least for now they are. I'm getting my butt kicked at school right now, I have all this work piling up and I have no idea when or how I'm going to get it all done. The good news is thought that me and Erin are going to NYC for spring break now to see Movin' Out on Broadway and then off to see the usual sights we are only staying for 3 days though so I don't' know how much we'll actually be able to see, but I'm sure we'll at least get a good taste of things. Ground Zero, the Met, etc.
I dunno, but basically lately I have been a victim of my own feelings of inadequacy, not towards anything in particular but just in general, just feel like I haven't been giving it my all lately, I've slacked on things that I said I wouldn't slack on and not even really tried on others. I dunno what I'm going to do, I just needed to vent really.
Bloggar 4.0 is out for those of you who post regularly, it's a cool tool to check out, make sure you do if you use blogger or livejournal or typepad or any of those others out there.

Stuck again!

OK for real, I'm getting sick of this weather. Last night we started to get what has amounted to about 6-8 inches of snow, wind and general crap. The thing I love the most is the fact that the East Coast is on the news right now for their round of it, but yesterday there was nothing about Indiana... Stupid Midwest and its ambiguity. So yeah, I've been in my room all day today, not doing a dang thing. I studied some, fixed some HTML that I threw together earlier. School this semester is turning out not to be that bad, yet. I emphasize that yet part. I'm sure something will happen later though. I should go now, I've been typing this for 15 minutes, maybe I'll do a classic "trip 'round the net with Mike" later tonight or something.

It's still winter, right?

OK for those of you who haven't' been blessed with the snow/rain storms in the west, you might have noticed a slightly unseasonable weather pattern. For example, Right now it's 65 degrees and absolutely beautiful outside. Breezy, but awesome none the less. Last night it was also a bit weird, thunder and lightning, in Indiana, in January! WTF?! I don't understand weather any more, I know that global warming isn't' the cause, it's supposed to be 10 on Saturday night... Again WTF?!
Erin's been sick all week, she sounds horrible, I really hope she gets better soon, poor thing hasn't left the house since Monday, and she barely did that. Whatever she has I just hope I don't get it, I don't have the time to get sick now.
So this is the first week of school... woo hoo, right? Well kinda, I mean I am at school for literally 11 hours on Tuesdays and 8 on Thursdays... My profs all seem OK, albeit an odd mix of them. My Western Civ prof is Russian... My Speech prof is a ex-Air Force dood who happens to be writing his PhD thesis on Motorcycle gangs and their symbols... kinda cool. My Finance prof is Canadian, have you seen the Canadian economy? Yeah, that's what I thought. The Korean I have for International Business isn't too hard to understand thankfully, but his name is a slang term for a male body part, Fill in the blank "Hang out with my ______ out!" You get the idea.
I dunno how this semester is really going to turn out, but I know that I want to do as well as I did last semester, love getting my GPA up as high as possible. Lots of big projects though for this semester so we'll just have to see how it goes, yet again my goal is a semester GPA of 3.25-3.5.
OK one quick geek note: Macworld is this week, most of you could care less, but they did annouce something that I find very cool. The Mac Mini, I want one of these babies! Cheap, extremely small, what's not to love. Granted I've always said that I hate Macs, but for this price I might just have to give one a try. I've got some extra money coming in from tax returns, and web design stuff that I could definitely use to buy it. Also, Apple announced the iPod Shuffle, small and pretty cheap again. Holds 512MB or 1GB of music, no screen, but it's only 1 inch wide and 3 inches long. Holy crap! For $100 it could be a great gift for someone who just wants to listen to music while exercising or whatever. I'm too caught up in using mine for audiobooks and podcasting to trade my 20Gb, but someone out there will love this thing.
Wow this thing got long, just a few more notes though. I'm noticing on the stats that a lot of people are reading this through RSS, very cool indeed, its about time that someone started using RSS. I love it personally, its my new favorite way to read blogs quickly. If you are using RSS for this blog and notice anything weird, let me know I'll try to fix it.
OK I'd better get back to something productive...

Iced in

So today we are under an ice storm watch. What does this mean? It means that 3 hours ago I spent 45 minutes scraping about 1/4 inch of ice off my car windows, only to find out just now that I have at least that much more piled on it. It means that the temperature is warm enough that you won't freeze to death but not cold enough for snow. It means that eventually tonight the temps will fall and your street will be a sheet of ice. Nice huh? Yeah So things have been pretty boring today and actually I think I'm only posting so I won't have to watch TV. There is absolutely nothing on TV during the day. My usual Comedy Central, FX, Cartoon, FoodTV, TNT, TBS staples are absolutely devoid of anything worth watching. I have a feeling I'm going to be stuck here tomorrow too, Blockbuster trip I think after dinner. iPod for audiobooks rocks. EBay is a great way to get rid of stuff and make a bit of money. I need to clean my room... Randomness over and out

Hey guys, happy new year. Since this is the first post of the new year I felt like I should have at least a little something to say. I've added something to the site now. A PaintBoard! It's basically I space to doodle online. I dunno, I was bored today, so I put up a board... Yeah ok I am basically just holiday'd out. Nothing left to celebrate now, time for school to begin and honestly that makes me happy. I'm ready to get on with it and get one step closer to graduating. I'd better go do something productive with the day, hope you all have a great new year...
