and the beat goes on...

my past week has been pretty eventful...kind of been keeping busy...but i have also been keeping up with school since there is only a couple of weeks left...but i figure i should take a moment to talk about the past week...

tuesday...april 15...
i got tickets for liz and i to go to see the starting line at janus landing...i picked up the tickets at daddy kool records since they don't have service charges...i ended up picking up the new cd for the rasmus...it's this band from finland that i am starting to get into...but the cool thing is that i only got the cd for four bucks...i know awesome...so the show was pretty good...ran into a bunch of people i went to high school with...got kind of pissed off at one bitch...but i got over it...basically because shes a cunt and i would rather not have her ruin my night...the starting line was ok...the lead singer acts like a hippie...it was pretty funny...but i ended up really liking the two bands that came before them...bayside and four years strong were awesome...definitely got the crowd pumped up...

wednesday...april 16...
liz got tickets to go see rent at ruth eckerd hall...which i was totally stoked about...the show is ending in september so this would be one of the last times to get to see it on stage...and honestly i am so happy to have finally seen it...i loved the movie...so i knew i would love this too...liz also got a ticket for her sister...and all three of us just had a good time...funny night...after the show we ended up driving over to tampa to go to the hard rock casino to gamble for a little bit...i only spent about 15 bucks...but i found out that as of april 1st any one under the age of 21 is not allowed to play on the slots...but i am allowed to play poker...but i only have to worry about it for another couple months...i seriously can't wait to be 21...just so i can order drinks if i wanted to and not have to worry about getting caught or someone else having to buy the drink for me...

friday...april 18...
so since i missed nhungs birthday...and we hadn't hung out in a couple of weeks we both decided that we would get together tonight to hang out...the first thing i had to do thought was get my homework done so i could go out...and i was really proud that i did it so quickly...any ways...after ti got cleaned up and dressed i went a picked her so she didn't have to worry about driving since she is now 21...so we first had to head to toys'r'us so nhung could buy her pogo stick that she has been wanting for a while...then after we figured out that we probably couldn't last till 11 we decided to head to international over in tampa so we could eat dinner...we had to do a coin toss in the parking to figure out where we were gonna eat since we wanted to go to cheesecake factory but figured it might be busy...but since it landed on tails we ended up going to cheesecake...which i wasn't gonna complain about since the food there can be pretty good...and i really wanted some godiva cheesecake too...after we got out of dinner i called rachel to see if we could hang out at her house before we went out later since we had time to kill and didn't know of any other places to hang out at...so we headed over that way and hung out till we had to leave and pick up lauren...we ended up getting out to the rack around 11...hannah ended up not being able go since she had to go to work the next morning...but we got to sit at the sushi bar while we were there since no tables were really available...they all ordered sushi i figured i would try the dumplings that they had there...but before i ate i told them i would try some sushi that night but the only problem is that i don't like seafood and i had some trouble eating it...i ended up spitting it out into a napkin because of how sick it made me...but i tried to play it off like i choked on it [don't know if that worked]...and then lauren and i had to run to the bathroom because i didn't know if the food would stay down...but nothing happened and i was fine...

after we got out of the rack rachel came up with the idea to go get tattoos...which we were for except by the time we got there they had closed and we couldn't get one...which is ok since if i had gotten it...my mom would have fucking flipped out...so i now if i want to get one my mom wants me to call my doctor to see if getting one would have any effects on me with my disease...so once i find this out i will get one...hopefully by next weekend since i get paid again then...

saturday...april 19...
nothing big except for i found a way to finish my research paper that was due on sunday...i found an old paper i wrote my senior year on super bowl advertising so i decided to use that and revise it...later that night i decided to take my mom out to dinner...no special reason...i just felt like taking her out to dinner to be nice...

sunday...april 20...
yeah again not much...since i forgot nathan's birthday party the day before i asked barb if i could come by after they got back from the pool so i could the little man...so i went to walmart and picked him up a few new shirts and a race car from the movie cars...then after i left there house i called liz to see if she wanted to go to the movies...so we ended up seeing forgetting sarah marshall up at bay walk...which was really funny...not to mention so male full frontal nudity...hey it's better then seeing a chicks tits...and i jason segel is cute any way...seeing this movie plus that was awesome...even if they didn't do that i would have liked it...but i think i might pre-order the movie now...

well im done now...i really want to get some scrapbooking done since i haven't done it in a while...and im not gonna worry about homework till at least wednesday or thursday...

speaking of thursdays i thought i would put up a clip from last weeks the office...seriously pam and jim have some of the cutest moments but his one has to be one of my favorites now...


and also grey's anatomy is finally coming back this thursday...i won't be going out...i won't pick up my phone...i won't go online...i won't be doing anything as long as grey's anatomy is on...

oh shit...look at me go...

wow...i'm on a fucking roll today...i not only got my chapter for western humanities read today...but i also got my quiz and discussion done...i not only got an A on my quiz but i am also responding to other peoples posts too...im so fucking stoked right now...and hungry...but also kind of concerned since i have a research paper on god knows what due by sunday...but to be honest i think i will be okay...because believe it or not...i can actually write...and as long as i bust my butt getting some research done tomorrow i will have it written by sunday...then next week is the second to last week of school and i can work on all the shit i have to catch up on...and honestly it ain't to much...seriously i have been banging...

this is one of my responses that i did...i could have gone on for a while with this one...but i stopped myself...and i don't plan on going on about it here either...because it would take a long fucking time to write...but maybe in my spare time i will finish it up...

I thought I would post this here since you were talking about the "Age of Terror". I had no idea that this period (for how ever long it will last) was called the Age of Terror. It's going to be 7 years this year since the attacks and I don't understand how our country could still be consumed by fear. I'm sure someone is going to blame our President, and maybe we should, but isn't it about time we pull our selves out of the Age of Terror? I mean our country knows what can happen when a disaster can happen, and it's not just attacks, remember the Hurricanes? So why is it that we can't be ready to build our selves back up after a disaster? We should know by now, our country may be young, but we have been through plenty to have come up with a basic idea to pick our selves up when we fall down, right? Or am I being to naive to believe that America is strong enough to not live in fear?

I think to many people rely on the President to pull us out of a mess (which he should since he is the fricken Commander in Chief), but I think we should also be able to rely on each other too? But then again, if the majority of the country is still living in "fear" this might be a problem.


but im not gonna let school bring me down...im going out tonight with the girls...kind of excited since i haven't hung out with nhung in a couple of weeks and we are gonna go to the rack for dinner...then sunday i am going to the beach theatre with liz to see the wizard of oz...it's only a quarter and they have ten cent popcorn...so it should be fun!and i am considering writing about my fun filled week...but that's if i find the time to care this weekend to actually write about it...

...i said what what in the butt...

me ballin' oh heck yes i am...

last friday i got payed...and i pretty much banked on that one...so because of that i decided to go shopping...pick up some shirts...some shorts (but the plaid pair i got don't fit which sucks since they are a 22 and i don't even where a 22-i just figured that i could have my mom take them in where they needed to be taken in but they don't even fit...not gonna lie...it kind of sucks)...got a few new cds...bought a pair of tickets to the starting line show at janus landing tomorrow night...but from all the shopping i did...i didn't buy any movies...which is kinda weird but hey i got plenty of new shit i needed/wanted...and even after i got done with all that shopping i still have money left over...i'm kind of hoping not to go and spend it though since i came up with a fabulous idea for a trip this summer...i was thinking about going up to roanoke to visit my brother after my birthday...not only that but possibly try to go up to boston too...i figure it might be fun to go see a red sox game up at Fenway since it is one of those baseball parks that has been around forever...ive gotten a few cocked heads as to why i would go up there...but i mean honestly Fenway is legendary plus how can you call yourself a red sox fan if you have never been to Fenway...i mean seriously...

[i'm back now] i needed to finish my response for my western humanities class...ugh...which i really am not doing to well in...i mean i am...but i am still behind on a few things...

this past week has been filled with a couple sporting events...last tuesday liz invited me to go to the ray's home opener...and even though im not that into baseball i still had fun...the people in front of us were hillarious...i ran into my brother too...he was kind of drunk - slurring his speech and just kind of talking a lot more then normal...it was pretty funny...he left for Germany yesterday morning...which kind of sucks since he will probably end up being there for a few years...i also saw a bunch of people that i used to work with at saturn...got to talk to es for a little bit too...the game was interesting...our seats were out in right field right next to the touch tank with the sting rays in it...i think i paid more attention to those then the actual game...i do remember that we lost...6 to 5...but hey what can yah do...

then yesterday i went to the storm game at the forum with rachel, lauren and lauren's mom...none of us had actually been to an arena football game before...it was ok...interesting but its not something i plan on getting into...after the game we went to go eat at the spaghetti warehouse over in ybor...and then back to rachel's to get our hockey fix by watching slap shots!

so now im gonna bounce over to the post office to drop off my taxes...yes i waited to the day before they were due...why...well that's easy i did them twice online and when i found out that i wasn't getting a refund but that i owed money i decided to shun it and wait till i actually felt like paying the government some bullshit amount of money...then i have to stop by blockbuster to drop off two videogames that i picked up last week...i think they might be late but im pretty sure ill be fine...

...one of the songs that i love to listen to when im not having a good day...

a suburban wasteland...

pretty strange title for a blog but i thought of it a couple days ago...i was heading to tyrone mall and on the other street behind my house near the park...i saw two vultures eating a dead possum on the sidewalk...now it wasn't so much seeing the dead possum because i see animals dead on the side of the road before...but it was the fact that VULTURES were picking at it...i mean how often do you see vultures...i thought it was kind of crazy...and from that i came up with the suburban wasteland name...i thought it might be a good name for a band...but i don't plan on starting a band any time soon...

any way after that i started thinking about that name...tried to think of the different things that would characterize what a suburban wasteland is...and while thinking of this and trying to park so i can go into the mall i look over and see one of the fucking dumpsters on fire...yeah...one of those huge green nasty dumpsters with flames coming from the inside...i thought that was cool...so i started taking pictures of it and when i noticed the trees starting to catch a little i was kinda hoping that the trees would go up in flames too...but they didn't...so i finally gave up and went into the mall...

monday night was the last home game of the lightning season...and God was that a sad night...not only sad but a frustrating night too...rachel got a room at the embassy...so when i got done with babysitting i headed home to get my stuff and then i made the drive to tampa (which i have to say sucks having to do hours before the game starts)...i thought gandy might be a little backed up but i got pretty lucky and beat the traffic over the bridge...ended up getting to the hotel a little after 5 and just kind of hung out till the game started...liz and her family went to the game too and we saw them during warm ups...then finally the game started...and man i swear up until about 5 minutes left the game just sucked...it was uneventful...both atlanta and our guys looked like they weren't trying...then the thrashers scored and it seemed like after that our guys just didn't care...then atlanta scored again in an open netter with maybe a minute or two left and FINALLY our guys started to care...that was when they started trying but it was just to little to late...and after that i was just mad...i was frustrated...i go to the games to see hockey and i didn't see that...instead i saw a team that i have supported all season whether they won or lost that just could care less...i appreciated what they did in the end when they came out and put the sticks in the air...but i couldn't clap for them...i was mad...yeah it sucked that we lost...i mean a fucking shut out on our last game...but it was more so that they just didn't try...i have more respect for a team who lost but gave there best in the game...and they didn't do that...

it sucks that the season went the way it did...my first official hockey season and it just went from low to high to low...i mean it started off with my favorite player dan boyle getting his wrist cut from his skate that fell during pre season and just kind of went from there...lost three of our favorite players...and plenty of losses during the third period...but i supported them...and i went to the games to cheer no matter what...but i still loved this year...i'll never forget it...i met some pretty amazing new people because of this great sport...encountered some really crazy strange fans who i will probably end up having to deal with them next season too...had some fun adventures and made so many inside jokes with the ladies from sticks and chicks...everything that happened before the games...during the games...and after the games makes me sad that the season is already over...but gets me pumped for september to come sooner...

Things I Would Like to See Next Season...
  • An actual Dan Boyle fight, since they are about as rare as pregnant man!
  • A goalie fight break out!
  • One of our guys laying out another playing by throwing his ass through the glass!
  • The team idiot from the other team score on his own goal!
  • One of our guys beat the shit out of a fan!
    See You Next Season!
