If you are willing, it will work out, regardless.

And everything will be okay.

Time for some of the best sleep of my life.

For those of you... [May. 19th, 2006|12:20 pm]

Everything, everything in my life right now is amazing.

School is out, 3.8 GPA
3.5 Months of Summer
Both jobs are going well, Susan's working at Fossil!
I love you more than ever.
Apartment set up with Ben and possibly Nate
World Cup in a few weeks
Gonna start running/working out in the early mornings
Making plans with the guys for some summer adventures
Up for a Philadelphia Air Award for a radio project, which could lead to internships

I'm also very very excited for the debut Angels and Airwaves album coming out, even though Tom's voice/style can be a little overbearing, it might be one of my summer soundtracks.

So for those of you wishing me ill, like the retard who commented in my last post, wanting desperately for me to be miserable, I feel sorry for you. Ha, I can't be touched.

Right now I have some work to catch up on... probably get to bed by 2 ish... class at 8:10 tomorrow is looking pretty much like poop.

But I have so much motivation to complete a long overdue project.

I can't wait.

Hard to get a grasp on how I'm feeling right now. You can't argue with fantastic weather and having so many friends to back me up in hard times is something to really be thankful for.

I appreciate all of the guys here at Temple for cheering me up since I came back: Will, Mike, Sam, Ben, Lisa, Louise, and Marisa. I also have to thank all of my friends at home for coming to bail me out on Friday morning when I wasn't doing so well.

It's still hard to shake off this whole situation, it's really a shame to lose a year of your life the way it did, sleep's been hard to come by, but life has to go on I suppose.

This'll be an odd week.

Don't ever just give up on something important to you.

I havn't posted in awhile and there's a good chance that I won't post anytime soon after this, but let me say one thing.

Right now, it just feels like I'm watching a situation that I have no control over. It's like being apart of a dream where you are have no voluntary action, but you know for sure that you don't want to follow in the direction that the dream is leading you down.

What do you do?

An Early Reflection [Dec. 15th, 2005|04:51 pm]

[music |Weezer- "Make Believe" Album]

Only one more final left to do: Tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. then thats it, end of the first semester. Right now, I'm the only one left in my dorm, everybody else is leaving to beat the ice storm thats going to happen later on. I'm glad that I get a chance to sit here and relax, think about things.

I've learned quite a few things, considering that it has only been one semester:

- I actually like to read, it's just a matter of finding the motivation to get past page one
- Taking up basic responsibilities that I was once too lazy to do: cleaning bathrooms, vacuuming on a regular basis, doing my own laundry, and taking out my trash.
- When I do go out of my way to be social, I can meet a lot of interesting people, and all it really takes is a simple "hello"
- Babies Can't Beat Daddies, but sometimes, Babies are preferable to daddies

But most importantly:
-I've learned that I am self-sufficient and that I know that when I leave here, I'll be able to make something of myself. In high school, you are coddled and shielded from extraneous responsibilities, but as soon as the tether goes away, you really amaze yourself with how independent you can be. I think of the connections I made to wmmr through my classes and through basic e-mails. I took a day with absolutley nothing planned the day before and on my own I was able to create an amazing experience at wmmr... there were no phone calls from the rents or previous plans made by a school to make it happen... I made my own good fortune and for the first time in my life, I orchestrated an independent day.

My friends have been and will always be there for me. Regardless of the petty fights that we have, understand that we've grown up together and even when our relationships and family lives have been rough, we've always had that second family to go to, our weekend safe haven. Don't ever forget that. I still expect a full cast of "best men" on the day that I get married, whenever/wherever the hell that may be.

It has also been nearly 9 months since I've met one of the most amazing people in my life. I don't like to rub my good fortunes in anyone's face, but I want to give credit where credit is due. In a time period where there has been little consistency, between adapting to college, to my family moving, and various social dillemas, she has been caring, understanding, and loving. Words don't do it justice, but without you Alix, I wouldn't be the person that I am now. I support you in anything and everything that you should decide to do and I will be there the same way you've been there for me.

I love my life... 2005 has been amazing to me. To everyone involved, whether on a daily basis or on a seldom AIM "hello", thank you.

It's funny how we only want to dwell on the bad things that pop up in our heads and bother us. For all intents and purposes, I could post about how my project is done and that I'm excited for this weekend and the fact that my first semester is nearly over and I can come home for over a month.

But, that's not usually why we write here. Not me, at least. For whatever reason if I have spare time, I'll find reasons to speculate and play the devil's advocate in my social life, with emotions, etc.

I guess all I really want to say is, let me know that everything matters.

Nobody will know what the fuck I'm talking about, but in a way, just having something tangible that expresses exactly what I want and at the same time, nobody can understand, is amazingly gratifying.

And everything will be okay.

There are no words that can describe the disappointment, anger, anxiety, rage, fear, disgust, and illness that am experiencing right now.

I am dead for tuesday.

Finally Back! [Nov. 15th, 2005|09:38 pm]

Alright I've got about a few minutes to sum up 13+ hours of activity. Tuesdays = retarded.

Last night I forgot that I had to outline a major theme in my one english novel, so I was up until 3:30 doing that, didn't really finish either... but it ended up being okay. I had to wake up at 8:30 so I could get out of the dorm to hand in a housing slip before the noon deadline. I went from there to my English class, which left me feeling stressed because of my final paper and the HUUUGE implications it has on my overall grade for the semester.

From there I had my BTMM lecture, which was 80 mins of pure boredom... which I bailed out of with a few mins left to spare so I could grab a small snack from the student center (which ended up being my only meal of the entire day) which consisted of a taco and a cup of water. From there I went to Math and the computer labs to work on my final project with my team members, we have to make a fully functioning website providing tips to incoming freshman using Adobe GoLive, which mind you, nobody knows how to use since we were just given the software a week ago. Don't worry though because the project is due in two weeks and just about everybody will be away for vacations. Looks like Brett has to pull all of the weight for shit he doesn't know how to do.

I didn't get a chance to eat dinner after the lab, which ended up being okay because I had a small snack at the Basketball game tonight, which ended up as a slaughter against Army. Cheney got his 500th career win with the team, I sat in the student section with a sea of red, and we wound up winning by over 30.

So after a quick conversation with the lady, I made it back here... finally... and I'm beat.

There was some more really exciting news that I havn't said on here:

Out of sheer boredom a few nights ago, I sent a random e-mail to the guys at the Preston and Steve show on WMMR. I know that they occasionally read their fans e-mail over the air and at least get back to everyone that sends something to them. So I just told the guys that I appreciated their show, went to Temple as a broadcasting major, and appreciate what they do as a genuine morning show. Preston e-mails me back the next morning saying that he loved my e-mail and wanted to know if I wanted to come down to the studio some time to observe and job shadow. So hopefully, I'll be going there either on Friday or Monday, depending on the transportation. Wicked. Awesome.

Alright I'm outta here
