I’m stressed out. I’m so stressed out that I took a 5 mile bike ride tonight just to clear my head, if was a bit warmer and I wasn’t sick, I probably would have enjoyed it more but it was a bit of a help.

Work has just been going like crazy lately, but it’s not the good kind of crazy. I’ve got to go to Ohio tomorrow so I’ll have some peace once I get on the road maybe. Then Thursday it’s right back to the grind.

I planted some carrots and cilantro in the garden here at The Green last night, those both should be ready to harvest by Memorial Day or even a little before maybe. I’m ready to plant other stuff, but its still early yet.

I’m trying to find some new music, I’ve tired “what’s hot” on all the lists lately, Vampire Weekend, Owl City, etc. Not my thing really, basically all of their songs sound just like the last one. My music is just getting a bit old, I want a refresh. The summer of ’95 was magical for music, Morrisette, Oasis, Green Day, Weezer all came into my consciousness. I need another summer like that one where I can load up on music for another 15 years of enjoyment.

I’m still sick, I can’t seem to shake the head cold I’ve had over a week now. Maybe I just need more rest.

Only 1 star, does that make me unpatriotic?

I’m sitting down in the basement tonight, jamming, surfing, basically just messing around and wasting the only free night I’ll likely have this week.

Last week Amazon gave away a bunch of patriotic music for Veteran’s Day, I just got around to listening to it, I just gave The Star Spangled Banner 1 star and then when Come on Eileen by Save Ferris came I gave it 2…Does that make me a terrorist? Or at least a little be unpatriotic? I don’t think so, here’s why: I use stars to build my playlists, 1 star is something that will never show up on my random lists of music. Either because I don’t like it or I don’t want to hear it necessarily while I’m driving or at work. Thus, I am not a terrorist.

This week is going to be extremely busy at work and there’s still tons to do at The Green. I’ve got about 35 hours of work to do between now and Friday afternoon. I think I’m going to book it through the next two days and see if i can slack a bit later in the week and still get it all done, if not I’ll stay late on Thursday too probably.

I’ve got an eye doctor and dentist appointment tomorrow so that’ll take a little time away from work but I need to go to both desperately.


Another day of waiting… So much waiting… Lots to look forward to this weekend though.

I’m rebuilding a swing, maybe some pics coming later. I’m mowing, cleaning, etc. as usual. It’s Erin’s birthday, I probably won’t see her for the first time in 4 years.

Things are odd lately. It’s good though.

Journaling doesn’t have to be deep does it? Just functional in its own way.

Snow video


New video from this afternoon’s snowstorm. It’s still snowing, hard. There’s at least 4-5 inches already. Not cool.
The good/bad news is that classes were cancelled tonight, that means I got to go home early, that also meant that I have no idea what is on my finals next Thursday… Hopefully I get an email from my profs soon…
I’m goin to go shovel snow…


I’m sitting here at school because basically I have nothing to do for another 3 hours. I have stuff to do but since the labs here suck I can’t’ do what I really need to do so I will be forced to do Math. It’s not that I hate math or anything like that; I just would rather do other things. School so far has been ok, nothing too exciting, same gang, and some new faces too. I don’t’ know how I’m going to keep everything in balance though, between Erin, school, and work it’s going to be hard, but I’m sure everything will work out. I think tonight I’m going to go over to Chris’ and chill for a bit. Good times. Thursday I[‘m going to do my charity work for the month, actually it’s more like for the summer, I’m doing a trivia bowl for the Literacy Coalition, fun fun fun. I’m ready to move on work is getting harder and harder to come by at the office, it’s time to move on and do something else. My mind is going 90MPH right now and I have no idea why. Anyway I guess I should run out to my car and get my math book and do something constructive with an otherwise boring afternoon. Oh yeah and it’s going to storm like a mug anytime now. BTW, those of you out there who have blogs and such, post a comment with your link and I’ll update mine, and those of you who have one that you don’t’ update, die… Ha Ha Ha! Seriously though I get really tired of just clicking through my daily blog links only to find that no one has updated. Of course I’m one to talk, I havent’ updated nearly enough this summer but I was busy, you are all here for my entertainment, entertain me dangit! I’m thinking about purchasing a new domain name so that when/if I ever actually start my web/tech side gig I will have a legit name to go under instead of just my real name domain. Sure it’s ok to own but I want something original, unfortunately as you can see by the design of this blog, I am unoriginal and lazy, but hey what are you going to do. I have to find some plans for this weekend, I have to do some studying, but that shouldn’t’ take long and it’s too early yet in the school year to really worry about anything for a test or whatever.

Its Over… kinda

I’m done with finals! I had 3 today and let me tell you I’m sick of taking tests now. They all went pretty well I think. I know that I passed them all; we’ll just have to see how much they affect my final grade though. If things stay the way they are I will get a 3.5 for the semester and bring my overall up to like a 3.4. Geekish I know, but I’m trying to get through school now and do well at it. Not like last time. I’m trying to get a waiver for one class right now, so hopefully I’ll be even closer than I thought to graduation. Work is going well right now, busy, but good. I am going to start full time next week, I’ll take a few afternoons off now and then, but mostly I’m going to be there everyday all day. This weekend is still up in the air, I wish everyone was off like one day and we could all go out like old times, but everyone is busy right now it’s really hard to get everyone at the same place and at the same time. I have Thursday all day off, I dunno what I’m going to do really, but I’m sure I’ll find something to do.

The truth shall set you free!!!

Today has gone from horrible to pretty good. It stared with me leaving Matt in a bar because it was late and he was drunk and I wanted to go home while he wanted to stay out. On the way home I got a call from g-ma that her brother had died around midnight. She was a mess. Meanwhile Emmy was waiting on me to get home and I talked to her most of the drive home. Then we talked online for a while, I went to bed finally around 230.
I wish I knew more about what was going on in hear head. I feel like she’s on the edge of coming back to me. For whatever (probably a good one) she’s not there yet. My thoughts? I can wait forever for a yes, but to hear it now and only mean it for a year is bad.
My grandpa retired today. 39 years at GM. glad to see he’s finally out.
Classes went well today, Philo is weird, the guy is a hippie but he seems cool enough, reminds me of Homkes, one of those guys that really make you think and stuff, which is good for Philo I’m sure. Psych is another story; he is a spiritual guy and wants us all to be that way too. I have a feeling that we will be disagreeing on my topics this semester, not the facts of the course but the meanings behind them. Soc is dull and I have a prof I can’t understand if Thursday doesn’t go better I’ll switch to the 1030 class.
Coming back to me: I say it like she’s out on her own and can’t deal with it without me, I don’t’ mean that at all. I should start saying get back together I guess cause neither one of us has really done that bad on our own and much to my delight we get along again. Someday it’ll work out; in the mean time I can save up for the rock… it might take a while at this rate. Charge it! I’m destined to be in debt forever I think
I have so much reading to do in the next two days I don’t’ know how I’m going to keep up this semester, my mind will be Jell-O soon… philo, psych and soc… ugh.. And then business law after that! Wow… I am a glutton for punishment I guess. Anyway off to read a bit and then to bed… see you all later.
Oh yeah, got a new cell phone today too… Samsung X427.
