I am keeping my guard up tonight, this morning, whatever. It is still raining and the news has been talking about creeks in other towns spilling over so I am going to stay up for a few more hours (the rain should be letting off soon) to watch over the street and respond at first sight of anything.

The real point of this post was to explain a change I did for links. Instead of having the small list widget on the sidebar I have decided to make a page for all my links. This way it will be easier to organize and find things. I’ll be adding more over time but I added the basic ones to start with.

That’s about it. Now I need to find something to do.

For whatever reason my mom is worried about the creek going critical again. She heard on the news last night that we should keep an eye on it because of the next storm. So she wants to get sandbags tonight to be safe. For one, sandbags don’t do shit unless you surround the house with them. Secondly, I just got back from checking the creek and it is only about a foot high. She better not jinx it again.

It felt good to return to my own bed but sounds of the heavy rain outside and wind caused me to get little sleep. When I finally got to sleep awoke a little later to find that the wind was causing the rain to collect on the top of the sliding portion and overflow into my room. A nice puddle was forming so I quickly got some towels to clean up as much as I could. Now I have to get some duct tape and plastic bags for a little MacGyver session and canal it into a bucket. Fuck this shit. I hate you California.

I have no clue where today went. Seriously. It just happened.

Last night was epic. Those certain moments left me speechless and I was happily surprised. But that’s not something I’m going to talk about. We’re talking about today, so here it is.

This morning my plan was to wake up and finish up the math homework. Didn’t go quite as planned as I stayed in bed until 8am. Then I got up and took a shower to get ready. Left the house at 8:55am and headed down to the campus. English was boring enough to send me to sleep within minutes of the teacher opening her mouth. Surprisingly I was only asked upon once to answer a question and when the class ended two of the other people in the class commented about me sleeping and were jealous of my evading the teacher’s wrath. I’m fucking cool like that. Since we were out early so the others could work on the lab I headed to grab my math crap. I finished it up in the lab and had forty-five minutes to spare so I called Ashlee and we talked until it was time to head to math. I took the test and finished in about thirty minutes. This left me with two hours and thirty minutes to burn until the career planning class. I headed to the library and dicked around on my laptop for about an hour or so. Then I walked around, got some food, and then tried to figure out stuff to do. I ended up standing outside the main building for a good forty or so texting the Bako crew and then I ripped open my Dr. Pepper. While tasting the delicious flavors unleashed inside my mouth I noticed “B” walking up to go to the writing lab, or so it appeared. She noticed me standing and said “hey.” I did the same and added a question about how she was doing on the writing lab. She said that she was on the last part and asked about if it would be hard. I assured her it wasn’t very difficult and that she could add her older paragraphs to it and such. She seemed relieved and then we exchanged “byes.” I watched her in a not so stalkering way walk down the hall and as she did I quietly said “I’m going insane.” It just came out. Then the thought of All Along the Watchtower came to mind. About five minutes later another friend comes up and we talk until my last class. I headed in to it and noticed the lack of “B” in the writing lab. No questions came to mind about it as I was feeling worn out already. In career planning we got in groups and discussed how to get fired, how not to get fired, and how to get hired. Slow day. After class I headed home on the very wet freeway. It was stop and go for most of the time.

When I got home my dad was watching football and I ended up crashing and took a nap. I woke up an hour or so later and then did some computer stuff. After the football game was over I watched last night’s Life and then played some Call of Duty 4 with some Shackers. Good times. Now I’m waiting for the Bako crew to get home so we can get some laughs in before I have to suffer through the English exam tomorrow. Here’s hoping I pass that fucker.
