Three posts and a ham for your enjoyment~

October 27th, 2009 (11:52 pm)

Taken from my twitter account:

Welp ladies and germs, I am single again. Go me! First one to bring me a sacrificial virgin gets dibs on my man bits~

To clarify: Nothing bad happened, we're still friends. Just didn't seem like it was going to work out in the long run so we ended it early.

Also to clarify: The sacrifice should be female. No basement dwelling fat guys shall serve as a lamb on my altar. No sir, I don't like it.

But yeah, that's about it. I was depressed for about a week because I was confused about whether or not I wanted to stay with her or whether I wanted to end it and today we had a talk in which she mentioned that she didn't think our personality conflicts would work together in the long run. I nodded and told her I felt the same way, she was relieved. We both took a nap for about an hour or so and then had some amazing sex. It's sad that we go without sex for about a week or two and then when we break things off
we fuck like weasels.

And hilarity shall ensue~

But seriously, folks, not much has been going on besides that. I still hate my job, school bores me, and I'm tired all the time; but look on the bright side, I now have a beneficial friend whom I am not required to have any emotional attachment to. Of course, this means I have to actually go out and look for a girlfriend again, but at least I can always fall back on her when I get dumped by someone.

Good night~ >:3

current location: United States, South Carolina, Summerville
current mood: chipper

So I haven't updated this thing in an eternity. That's no news to you. But what is news to you, is that I have a girlfriend now~

Yup yup. Met her through an (free) online dating site, went on a couple dates, and now we're actually dating each other. Her family is pretty cool. It's her, her mom, her best friend, and her best friend's boyfriend that live in her house, and they are all just as crazy as I am. Her mom is a pagan. I want to say that she's a wiccan, but I'm not all that sure. She seems to have more of the celtic paganism in her background as she has a tattoo on her shoulder of a stylized Triad and celtic crosses around the house, although those are often times seen within wiccan practices, too, nowadays. Her mom really likes me. She likes how nice I am to her daughter (almost forgot to mention that her name is Sarah) and how nice I am to her and Sammie (Sarah's friend). I think I got in really good with her when I cooked for them a few nights ago and offered to help her around the house with cleaning and whatnot.

So I'm very content with life at the moment. I still don't like my job, but I've had offers for other jobs from people, and I might just be going back into the pizza business again working for Domino's or this other place called NYPD Pizza. Only thing is, I have to get this issue with my tax and tag settled. My tag has been out since the end of April, and to get a new one, I have to find out where to pay my vehicle taxes for this county. This next paycheck, I will be heading on over there to get all of that situated and then hopefully I will have a job as a pizza guy again. I really miss that work. It was fun and very profitable. I liked the freedom it gave me most of all, and the "cash on hand every day" thing was a nice added touch.

I just started a new term at school. The classes are seemingly easy; one of them is an online psychology course and the other is a "computer configuration" course on-campus. I was scared for a bit that I was gonna fail my previous two courses because I completely forgot to turn in any work at all, but I checked my grades today and one was a 98% and the other was a 95%. XD Ain't I a lucky bastard, eh? So it's about time for me to actually do the first assignment for my online course before I go to work. All I have to do is write out a short statement about myself and then propose comments and questions on the other students' statements. Kinda easy, right? Gotta check what I have to read and have done, though. Anyway, I'm off for now because I need to finish that and I need a shower but gotta be ready for work in about an hour and a half. Good bye for now, all you lovely, freaky people.

P.S. - I just changed the text message alert tone on my phone to the prayer that the brothers in "The Boondock Saints" used right before they shoot the last guy during the mission where they crawl through the air duct. Squee~!

Well, it's been almost two months since I last came here and updated this thing. I've been checking in on my friends' journals every now and then, reading back a few entries to make sure I don't miss much, and just wandering off to some other corner of the interwebs to find some entertainment. Finished watching all of Full Metal Alchemist a while back, now starting on re-watching Yu Yu Hakusho because I missed a few episodes between the show and the movie. Buddy of mine that I work with is letting me borrow it a couple seasons at a time. Each season has about 25 episodes in it, too. XD It's gonna take me a while to finish this one.

So, what have I been doing all this time, you ask? Well, to put it quite simply: nothing. I have been doing nothing out of the ordinary besides going to class and going to work, with the ocassional trip over to Scott's house for a game of MtG and some bud. I've been trying to keep myself entertained around here, but am running out of ways to do so. Picked up Baldur's Gate 2: Shadows of Amn/Throne of Bhaal again to play with Andrew, but playing that game takes soooooo long that, after 2 hours of gameplay, we've hardly made it 20 feet from where we started.

I have started on my program to stop smoking. It's not gonna be a cold turkey thing, but rather a slow decrease and limitation on how many I allow myself to smoke. I've been smoking nearly a full pack a day recently, so I decided that if I can just get myself used to a half a pack, it will all go smoother. Then I can further limit myself to about 7 or 8, and just continue limiting myself until I get to the point of being at about 5 cigarettes a day, at which point I could just drop them all together. I'm not sure how long it will take, but so far it's going well.

My parents' savings have all dried up, so it's getting a little harder to get by now. My dad still can't find work. I mean, we're not starving or anything, but bills are getting harder and harder to pay. In fact, I had to pay the cell phone bill for all three of us this past paycheck so they wouldn't get turned off. That took $185 out of my money that was going to go to getting my car registered with an SC license plate. If I was working a full 40 hours a week, that wouldn't be so bad, but seeing as how I'm only getting about 30 it's getting a bit hard for me to save any money. Although I am going to start saving money with this new smoking plan.

I'm also trying to budget myself a bit better so I can actually start a savings account so I won't have to blow all my money to make a trip to asheville, and so I can just be very leisurely about the whole ordeal of going up there. The less I have to worry about money while I'm in Asheville, the more fun I will have in the end. So far, here is what I have worked out for my budgeting:

I get an average of about $400 - $450 every paycheck after taxes have been removed, which equates to $800 - $900 every month.

Car Insurance - $115
Gas - $100
Cigarettes (on new smoking plan) - $60 + About 4 packs left over for next month
Food (Just for me, not for the house) - $100 [I don't eat very much]
Soda and Energy drinks - $40 (estimate, probably not that high in reality)
Herbal Supplements ;D - $70
Other random expenses (oil, web hosting, clothes, etc.) - $100 (again, only an estimate)
Credit Card Payment - $100

All of that comes to $685 so we'll take that to an even $700 just to be on the safe side. So, all in all, I come out with having about $100 - $200 left over to put away/spend. I know this isn't a concrete thing, but with figuring out all that I need in a month, I notice that I actually can start putting money aside for once.

Anywaym I'm done for now. I'll come back to finish with an update at a later date. Good night.

I finally finished watching Elfen Lied. It made me sad. Very sad. It's a very depressing show. Constantly filled with lies, death, and unfulfilled dreams. Also, it kinda made me think of Bramble and how it seems that I relate myself to Kohta and her to Lucy. I don't know why. I felt that way when I first watched it with Savannah and I still feel that way now. *sigh* It seems to me that my life is currently only filled with dreams that I cannot currently see to their fruitition. It's quite depressing, really. I don't know why this show made me so bummed out; except for that relation I just mentioned, I don't see any other things that coexist in the show and within my life. I guess it just makes me think of all the dreams I've had to defer just to survive. Hell, that even makes me wonder if things will ever work out the way I dream they will. But, as most would know, I've always been a dreamer and a hopeless romantic who dreams of romance and hopelessness. I know, that didn't make much sense, but what the hell, eh? I've always hoped for that storybook (or in my case mangabook) style romance where, when I finally find a girl, I am able to sweep her off her feet and then live out the rest of my life to the fullest with her. But.. As the story goes in my scenario, I fall in and out of love way too fast and every time it ends in some cataclysmic fashion that destroys my will to live for quite some time. Or there is the example of what happened with Bramble and I. I finally found someone who I genuinely could get along with no matter what, and I don't find out that she has feelings for me until it's already too late. In that case, it really is a manga style romance, ya know? That always seems to happen in the best storylines; the hero of the story goes the entire time chasing after this girl (or man in the shoujo mangas) just to discover that she really did feel for him but at such a moment that it is too late, whether it be due to death or other compromising circumstances.

I really don't know where I'm going with all of this. Just a bit down and out at the moment. I'm tired of always being alone, and Elfen Lied just made me understand just how alone I am as the characters within the story deal with similar issues within their lives. I severely miss all of the wonderful people I know back in Asheville, the ones I spent so much time of my life with for the past few years, and I'm not sure any of them even think about me anymore. I can't stop thinking about them all. Each and every one of them was like family to me. They were always there when I needed them and they never meant to disappoint. I don't know why it's so hard to make friends here. I did it so easily back there. I just texted Bramble after I typed that last line saying "You know... I really miss you."  I really don't know why I did. I just felt a sudden urge to contact her and make sure she still thinks of me. I don't want to be forgotten. "I will never be... just a memory." Ten points for knowing that quote, 20 if you can make the pain go away, and a whopping 50 if you find me a way to go back to Asheville and live there.

Anyway. I am currently texting back and forth with Bramble now, so I figure I better get off of this thing or I will never actually finish the post. So, good night for now.

Okay. Just a quick update to tell you all that I finally installed the Windows 7 Release Candidate. Since I got the nice new 1TB hard drive, I've been itching to use it for something worthwhile, and here it is =P

Trying out all the nifty new features that weren't included in Vista and looking at all of the wonderful things that they took out of Vista to make this one. So far, I've had no problems with any drivers (hell, most of them were already built into the system drivers), the only one not working is my sound driver, but I have yet to go online and find one for it.

Next I think I will be installing Ubuntu (new version of Linux for those of you going "wtf, mate?") on the new hard drive in another partition. Of course, most of this will get deleted whenever the two partitions that are left get filled up, but for now they will be used for learning purposes. I can't install Ubuntu until I get my disc back from Mr. Shaw, though, because I forgot to grab it from him on Thursday.

Well, off to add all of my music to the Media Player 12 library and then to see if Ragnarok will function on this new Operating System of mine. Wish me luck =P

Okay, here are the pictures as promised last night. I apologize for the large format of the pictures. I had no idea they would be this large when I uploaded them =P

Click here for pictures of myself and fishiesCollapse )So there you have it, folks. Pictures of moi and some of my fishies =P I'm off for now as I just got my package from Newegg that holds my new RAM and 1 Terabyte Hard Drive. I'm off to install them now =P

Talked to Miss Staci for the first time in a few months yesterday (yes, THAT Staci =P). It was rather interesting. Her and Justin are apparently going to be moving to this area next year which could end up to be interesting, or maybe not, you never know. I've changed a lot and I guarantee she has, too.

Got home from work about an hour ago. Been sitting here checking all of my various favorite websites and am now bored out of my mind. Andrew and Hannah are already down in Louisiana but have not gotten everything set up at her grandmother's house yet. About to straighten my hair out so I can take some new photos. I'm a bit tired of the ones I have right now. I will definitely post them when I get them uploaded to the computer. It may be tonight, it may be tomorrow, I don't know.

Wow, not sure what else to write about. Nothing interesting really happens around here. Maybe I'll come back and post tomorrow after I get my new computer parts and get them all hooked up. good night for now~

Currently munching down on a Turkey, Roast Beef, Ham, Colby Jack, and Provolone sub. Just finished making the first bong I've constructed since living back in Asheville. It's very refreshing to get back in to old hobbies. I wish I had more money to spend on it though, as it would have been much nicer and a lot more permanent. This one consists of an empty water bottle, a turkey baster, some aluminum foil, and some electrical tape. Not nearly as nice as any of my previous models, but it will have to do until I get some more funding to put towards making a good one. It's actually pretty decent for being a 20 minute bong (that of course is compared to the 3 to 4 DAY bongs that I used to make in Asheville). I wish I had more parts though, I kind of threw them all out when I moved here. I've always preferred bongs over bowls or joints just because they allow you to take a bigger hit and not cough. A vaporizer is of course the best, but I can't get one of those with my current financial situation. A good one will run about $400. I'm really starting to wish that Allen would have left his alembic bong at my house before I had moved, that way I could have kept it and had an AMAZING apparatus to smoke out of. Not to mention it would be a very impressive show piece for any like minded individual. Well, time to try out this new piece. I'll possibly come back later to write more, but I doubt it since it's late and I'm already tired. Good night

Brief update before bed. Went into work at 2PM today, worked til 11PM. Rather boring and uneventful day. Talked to Bramble for about 10 minutes while on break today. That was nice. She even recognized my voice when I called =P Bought two pieces for my computer upgrade on friday, the motherboard and the CPU heatsink/fan assembly. The motherboard will enhance my ability to overclock the machine and fine tune it the way I want, and the CPU cooler will bring the temperatures of the CPU down which will in turn bring the temperature of everything else in the case down. Next will be the RAM and a 1TB hard drive. Then it will go to CPU, then Video Card, and finally a new case. The case I want is quite pretty yet still very highly functional. It has two 250mm fans (that translates to almost 10 inches) for intake and the space for a 120mm fan for the exhaust.

Linkage to prettyness

So I am now well on my way to having nice things and extra money. Once I get this computer completely built, all my money can be saved up except for what goes for gas, food, and car insurance. Yay~! I knew this whole moving down here thing would pay off eventually and it looks like it's definitely starting to. Now I just need to graduate and I'll be set. That's when the big saving spree begins. Just buy necessities for about 6 months and put everything else away, and hopefully by then I will have enough money saved away to move back to Asheville and have my first couple months of rent out of the way. Of course, this will also mean I get to have a normal 9 to 5 schedule for the first time in my life. Huzzah!

So yeah, just musing about the future. Excited; very much so. Practicing on the new sketch pad recently, too. Studying basic anatomy a bit more. I kind of started sketching a long time ago without getting the real "figure study" kind of introduction, so I learn the very basics of motion and character builds from other people's artwork. Now I'm going back and re-learning what I missed in an in-depth manner. Couple anatomy books that my step mom has and sketching from photographs. Working quite well, so far. Anyway. That's it for now, goodnight.

Writer's Block: There Once Was a Girl from Nantucket

May 12th, 2009 (10:48 pm)

It's Limerick Day! Share a favorite or compose your own humorous five-line poem with an AABBA rhyme structure.
One of my absolute favorite ones was one that a friend of mine told me back when I was 16. It's one of those "Man from Nantucket" ones, so here goes.

There once was a man from Nantucket,
Whose dick was so long he could suck it.
He said with a grin
Wiping cum from his chin
"If my ear were a pussy I'd fuck it"

Hope you enjoyed that one =P Almost everyone knows of it, and upon further investigation, I discovered that the first time it was ever found in print was in a book entitled "Immortalia" that was published in 1927. Now THAT is a bit of fact I bet you never knew about our man from Nantucket. =P
