‘Cause my friends are awesome.

Today was quite a day. Started off with English which seemed to fly by and prove that I know more than most people, still. Then it was a race back to town where I got the car filled up and then headed home. When I got home I prepared myself for an interview.

Yesterday while I was playing Grand Theft Auto IV online I got a call on my cellphone. No phone number was listed so I didn’t bother answering it. They left a message so I played it. Turns out it was Walgreens responding to my online application that I filled out way back when. I called them up and got an interview scheduled. Fast-forward to today and I headed over. When I first got there I filled out the rest of the required stuff and then found the manager and headed to the back for the interview. I handed her my resume and references and then she explained everything. It seemed to go well from my perspective and then she handed me the form for the required drug test. I said my “Thank you”‘s and “Have a good day”‘s and headed off to the place. I had to go to one of the medical centers in town and got the test taken care of. So now I get to wait a few days to find out if I got the job. It’d be nice to get some income going since I am dead broke with summer closing in. I would be making $8.80 if I do get the job which rocks.

A few hours ago I accidentally smashed my knee into my door on the side of it. It is swollen and purple. I applied some ice to lessen it but it didn’t seem to work. It hurts like a bitch. Hopefully it isn’t anything serious and gets better or I am fucked. Such a crazy fucking day.

Lastly, I hope everything goes well for my good friend Lauren and her roommate. I’m here for you.

The last few days have been nothing really special. I haven’t gone anywhere. I haven’t done anything. I have been home most of the time spending half the day bored out of my mind. Even though there are probably a lot of things I could do I have very little motivation to do anything these days. Things aren’t holding my interest as much as they used to. Hell, I even avoided answering the phone of one of my friends who is back in town this week for spring break, but I can’t seem to make myself want to do anything so I never picked up. Being tired isn’t helping either. As for tonight I have had a pretty bad headache for the last few hours and my parents don’t help at all. I saw a damn good deal on the Blackberry Pearl which I have wanted for an upgrade but my parents aren’t willing to do anything until my plan expires in December and I know I’ll get fucked over waiting. Everything is just being a pain in the ass.

March has been shit. I’ll try not to jinx April.

I can’t believe it has been two years since I switched over to WordPress. Doesn’t seem like that long ago. Times have changed quite a bit since this time last year. Many changes to myself and the people around me, including some new additions.

Since this time last year I have graduated from high school and ventured off to college. A big change in my everyday life. Although with this change came more responsibilities and the biggest change, loss of old friends. There are a bunch of people I do not see anymore due to going to college or moving in general. It was pretty depressing once you get to thinking about it. You spend much of your time with them in school all those years only to have them go away. College brought a few new ones along the way, although not as strong as some of the high school ones. I have also met new people through other ways. Namely Tammi, Carter, and Ashlee. Even that crazy Canadian. All good pals with them. Last year I also had to deal with the death of my grandfather but as time went on I adjusted to the change, as hard as it was. Days, weeks, months, it all came and went. Now it is 2008. It’s pretty crazy.

Considering I’ve written the epic end of the year post just three months ago my memory juices are a bit low so I won’t be picking my top ten posts of the last year. Instead you get to see pretty stats and some search results that make me feel like the FBI will pound on my door in the near future.

Friday was quite the day. I woke up worried about my computer science test and how I needed to go to the student store and get a scantron for it. I headed out about ten minutes early so I could. As I was driving closer to the freeway I noticed something you don’t want to happen. The brakes on my car went out. My foot was pushing the brakes all the way down. My car just kept going. I got the “oh shit” look on my face as I carefully raced back home. I ran in the door and told my dad the situation and then said that I was going to take his car. I grabbed his keys and quickly swapped out important things for school. Once I was on the freeway I floored it. I parked in the closet spot I could find and jumped out heading for the student store. I made it there with eight minutes until the class. I saw Danny doing the same thing I needed to do. After grabbing the scantron I told him the details and he was surprised. We bought the thing and headed to the class barely making it in time. It also turned out that the test was easy.

Once school was over I headed home and my dad told me that my brake fluid was out so he bought a bottle and filled it. I was braking on air which doesn’t work like it does on trains sadly. I also reset the sensor so I will know next time.

Most of the time I laugh at news stories about people who are addicted to things that don’t even exist. Like the countless Chinese or Korean people who play Starcraft or World of Warcraft until they die. Today I realized that I myself have a web addiction, or so it seems.

Today started as a regular day with me checking our “Shackariam” IRC. Dubbed so to elude spies from figuring out what we are planning on a web based game. Anyway, I go check the Shack (Shacknews) and I load up the latest chatty. After doing so I go back to the IRC for a little bit. Everything is good and dandy. After my shower I come back to load the Shack again only to find the website not responding. Puzzled I quickly go to the IRC to dispel the thought of it being just me. It seems that the site is down for everyone. The usual jokes come up as I expected. I get into the mindset that all should be well after class.

After class I come home and the site is still down. Everyone in the IRC by now is aware and waits to for it to come back. I get bored because I go there to entertain myself and chat but since I can’t I have nothing to do. Hours later I find myself napping. Now I am tired as hell, headache included, and the Shack is still not back. This is the longest downtime since the great server crash of years past that I can remember, although Tammi tells me there was one last summer but the memory eludes me.

I pray that all is well tomorrow. I need my Shack.

It’s funny how everything in life is somewhat connected in some way you never figured. Hell, I just realized one today that I should have noticed months ago. It seems to be one of those things that escape thought. I’m going to go into detail about the particular connection but needless to say it seems everything comes full circle eventually.

On the other hand, I have noticed that innocence can die in a blink of an eye. How? Take this for example. I was eating lunch at the college today and I noticed a girl the next bench over. She was fairly cute and I noticed she was an art student (the canvas bag gives it away). From the looks of her she seemed intelligent, possibly a quiet one. Innocent one might say. I turned away to grab a bite and when I pulled my head back in range I noticed she was lighting a cigarette. Now I don’t smoke and I have friends on both sides of the line so I have a firm background with them but it seemed so wrong in this situation. An seemingly innocent girl doing something harmful to her body (I don’t want to start any big debate but we should all know by now what it can do). I was pretty turned off by that single action. It’s amazing how the smalled thing can have such a big impact.

Enough of my jabber for the night.

Just would like to give a special shout out to Tammi whose birthday is today.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! :)

Yesterday I went out with my parents to various car shops looking for find out who is the cheapest when it comes to getting some new tires. Back when I got my oil change (about a month ago) they told us that my front tires were dangerously low but my parents gave me the “whatever” look and decided to let me drive for a month before giving a shit. So we checked out a handful of places and decided on Les Schwab. We dropped the car off and went to Best Buy. At Best Buy I picked up Burnout Paradise and then walked over to Borders to waste time. After about two hours or so they called us to pick up the car. When we did they gave us a free box of various beef products which was pretty cool. I drove the car home and popped in Burnout.

The new Burnout is very different from the old ones. I’m still trying to get used to the “pick your own route” deal and making sure I turn on the right street going 150+MPH. Not the easiest thing to do. After about an hour or so of playing I hopped on Lego Star Wars to play with Tammi in Episode 1. The connection was off and on at first and then during the second to last level we encountered a pretty mean glitch that wouldn’t let us beat it so we had to start over. Once done with that level we got to the last of Episode 1. Here we ran into something worse. With the added lag and stuff it was hard to use our Force powers on Darth Maul during the battle. This led to a little frustration but we managed to make it through. Tammi and myself plan to continue our adventure later today.

As for today, I woke up and watched last night’s Stargate Atlantis which was really good and then loaded up Burnout. I unlocked some new cars and got a new license which made me happy. Right now I am downloading Service Pack 1 for Vista on my laptop. Hopefully it will improve performance and reduce some nagging load times. Don’t need any new problems. Other than that I expect an average day.

Today’s English proved to be lame once again. The teacher didn’t grade all the essays due to the jackasses who turned theirs in late so we get to wait until Thursday. For the rest of the class he had us get in groups and create a satirical paragraph or skit. When he let us start it was only one other person and myself. Five minutes later another came. Another five minutes and the last person came. While they dicked around I came up with a paragraph about hybrid cars that used soft drinks as an alternate fuel source. It would turn out that my brain managed to bullshit that pretty well without my useless group and class went by.

I got home and loaded Grand Theft Auto and finally beat the stupid fucking flight training missions. Such bullshit. Now I am in the Las Vegas style city and fighting mobsters. It’s getting hard now. As for the rest of my day I prepared my laptop with Songbird and uninstalled iTunes. It was acting screwy when I first put it on but after a reboot everything turned out fine. I plan to use it tomorrow to waste time in the lab.

As for computer science, one of the lab assignments is technically due tomorrow but since he hasn’t shown us how to do the format he wants I don’t see how he can ask for it. Hopefully he realizes this and puts it off until sometime next week. This will also give me more of an excuse to get those five hours in the lab. I am also a bit torn about my lab time for the class tomorrow as I need to go over some math for the test. I might end up leaving the house early tomorrow so I can get a little lab in before my computer science class and then get at least ten to fifteen in the math lab to study with Sable. We’ll have to see how that turns out.

Another week of school. Great. The good thing is that it is only four days, then a four day weekend, then another four day week. Thank you dead preisdents.

This morning I played some Grand Theft Auto: SA and the Xbox Live Arcade game Puzzle Quest which is pretty neat. I need to get my chick to a higher level as well as learn to solve the puzzles better. Then it came time to leave. The drive was pretty smooth. Only a little traffic near the school but managed to get there a little early. I drive fast. So what.

In Computer Science we started to mess with Visual Basic. Seems pretty simple for now. I’m sure it will get harder. I also have four hours of lab to make up but without knowing how to set it up right (the teacher hasn’t told us yet) I cannot do them. After Wednesday’s class I plan to get at least two hours done this week and then do the other two plus one more (as next week is week five). Hopefully that will balance it out.

During my break I helped Sable out in the math lab burning some extra hours away so I can sidetrack a bit and do the Computer Science lab this week and next week. Surprisingly I managed to stay awake today. I wanted to leave early but she pulled out a last minute activity for us to do. My little group managed to get most of it done extra for one problem we all forgot to do. Now I just have to prepare myself for the test Wednesday.

Tomorrow is my favorite short day. No, not because it is English. I don’t like the class. I only like the day because it is short. Anyway, I get my essay back tomorrow which I am hoping I did well on. I went over the page limit he wanted but I hope it helps me out in the long run. We’ll see. Hopefully class goes by quick. Then it will be back home to Grand Theft Auto.
