I was directed to this via LJ by my friend Galen. I hope to find others here... Not sure what I'm going to do with this journal... Probably use it as a backup or something of that nature. I got in on a seed account and if this flourishes better than LJ it'll be money well spent in the long run. I hope this place will be run better than LJ and is going to be around in case LJ dies.
Some of the way I am feeling actually started a while ago, with wiping some messages off the dry eraser board from the previous apartment, written by someone I still care very deeply for. They were there for a few years... don’t ask me why I let them stay on there as long as I did… Probably just me being sentimental, stupid, or something… I dunno. Probably shoud have been erased a long time agao, way before the actual moving. The transition of moving into this new apartment today is the final day of the “Old Days”. This isn’t to say that I’m cutting ties or anything like that, but I am definitely done dealing with some issues/people. I’m done with “fair-weather friends”… I only want to keep those in my life that I feel are important and want me in their lives and consider me, my friendship and all important to them.

I know sometimes I question long periods of silence and wonder if the bonds of friendship are still there. Sometimes I may feel that things are drifting apart. If I feel that way then please if I bring it up... just reassure me that things are good. I don't think that is too much to ask. I know sometimes I can be a little high maintenence, but I don't question things without a reason...

On a side note… I’m done with a number of things, and not going to hold onto the past, dead hopes, and stupid things like that. The only thing I will take from the past are the lessons learned, but also one thing in particular… I do know what I want in a more general sense when it comes to a relationship and through what I've been through now have some high standards and expectations. I’m not trying to be self-centered and whatnot though… That standard being... I will definitely measure things up to the ship that sailed away. That "ship" being one of my previous relationships and a bit of a metaphore. That will be the “standard” if you will. I hope to find someone that truly wants me, and willing do whatever it takes to be with me, and in turn I do everything within my power to make things work. I mean that’s what it takes right? Compromising and things and wanting to be there for the other. I’d say that is kinda the bare minimum, but that’s me. I want something special that is emotionally on that deep of a level, like what I had or even better. I hope for something that just blows me out of the water. Will I find it? I dunno… I’m not looking, and some of the closest relationships I’ve been in were ones I happened into while not looking. Even then things didn't turn out... *sighs* Till then though things are just the status quo, and don’t see them changing, but not closing any doors… I may be a little jaded, possibly a little bitter, and a lot more hesitant than I was before… more cautious and afraid… I just don’t like hurting anyone or being hurt. Doesn't mean I am not interested, but neither am I exactly going to be forward about anything. I'm just also not sure how to go about things myself at times truthfully...

I’m definitely not going to be as open with what I post to my LJ or my inner feelings. Even when I make an entry unable to be commented on sometimes it has just seemed to stir up drama, or people misinterpret my feelings, and have even had some people get angered because I posted anything, even when I don’t mention names or anything of that nature… I’m not trying to stir up anything, but at times just letting people know what’s going on with me, and my inner feelings. I’m just done with the drama in general. *sighs* This isn't any kind of plea for attention and whatnot. If people really want to know what is up and really know me then I whole heartedly invite anyone to definitely get in touch with me. I’m semi going to be closing myself off and not going to be as open in general. I’m also going to cull the LJ list here and make things more manageable as well as trim it to friends I do know, and add only those that I do know and vice versa.

I’m just going to go about with a lot of changes in general. I’ve been also looking inside myself, doing a lot of soul searching as it were… I know I’m not perfect, never will be, but hey no one else is either right? I'm definitely gonna make things better, both inside and out.
Well I don't know if I put all of them in there, but for those of you who celebrate things around this time of year I am wanting to wish you, your friends, family, and loved ones, the happiest of holidays! I know me and my immediate family (my parents and sibblings) usually have a tradition of celebrating starting tonight, Christmas Eve, going through Christmas Day. Others have different traditions and practices and may not be of the same, but in my opinion that is irrelevant. I just want to wish good tidings to all regardless.

I still must give kudos to [livejournal.com profile] 2_gryphon for his rant on Christmas.

May you all be safe and things be bright this season and that next year yields better things than this year. May it be a year of change, and hopefully that will be for the better.
Hey people, just letting you all know things are fine for the most part. I’m getting prepped for having company this coming weekend, but that isn’t the real reason I decided to post here. I wanted to give some exciting, and interesting information.

I just became an UNCLE! On 12/11/08 @ around 5:16pm. My younger brother (who is in Iraq currently) and his wife gave my parents their first granddaughter. This is also the first great granddaughter for my mom’s side of the family.

Other good news… My twin graduated finally over this past weekend. We spent the night in a hotel after getting off work on Friday, as his graduation ceremony was in a far off place Commerce TX at 8:30am Saturday. The ceremony was relatively quick compared to my own graduation. After things were over, we stopped off at the campus book store because this was the first time my brother had actually ever stepped foot onto the actual campus, having taken classes elsewhere more local. From there we had an awesome lunch at a local restaurant B.J.’s Brewhouse with some family that couldn’t make it and friends that were not able to make that gawd awful early graduation ceremony. Then after dinner spent time with friends as they live nearby where we were eating lunch. It was nice to hang out for a while as I’d been the one driving and stuff… It was a nice break.

Yesterday I went to the Arlington 2nd Sunday meet at a park after talking with a couple good friends I met at Oklacon, Imperial Lion and his mate Kurisu. I found there were a few other people that I kinda knew at the meet as well. It was most enjoyable and I wish I had brought my fursuit, but the head is currently out to be repaired. The only annoying thing is that a cookie was left on a seat that I didn’t see (left by someone’s kid I bet), and had to clean up my black leather trench coat. Other than that was a good meet and one I’ll have to return again to at some point, but with fursuit next time. I then went back to my apartment, had semi been hoping to chat with one or two people, but didn’t stay on long as I had plans that evening for a Christmas dinner planned out by [livejournal.com profile] celyddon.

The dinner last night was stupendous! It was all made by her as her present to us all. Other gifts were passed around. It was a really nice day in general, and had a nice end to it as well with that dinner.

I’ve also just had a lot on my mind here, some wish things weren’t so distant from some friends of mine, but then again there are varying levels of friendship and closeness and things of that nature. I’m going to try not to take things so personally as I believe can be said for many, and also try not to invest too much emotionally into things as some it only helps to just set one up for a fall, especially believing things are at a certain level when they aren’t, or having too high standards on some things (including people, friends, etc.). I know I tend to hold myself to a high standard, and a lot of times don't meet what I feel I should be capable of.

I end this with a quiz I took, and I really like my results. From here I go back to other things, might not be around much, but I want to thank everyone for their support. It means a lot.



Your Spiritual Number is Six



You bring communication and empathy into people's lives.

You are very open and understanding. You can accept difficult people.



Right now, your life is about being understood. You have trouble with your own vulnerability.

You end up playing the role of therapist in relationships, and it's hard to get people to ask about you.



You will take time out for those you love, even if you don't have much time. You can't help but be nurturing.

You are very responsible and ethical. You deliver on your promises.

Today I just really don’t want to be at work… I couldn’t really get to sleep and I didn’t sleep to well either last night, mulling over the previous events transpired and I am not feeling up to things right now, and most certainly am not exactly feeling all that strong inside right now. Things happen for a reason, and perhaps I needed something like this to happen to really realize that I need to toughen up those inner defenses, not let things get so close, or be so fast to open up to others, or to be so trusting… Friendship wise... and whatnot. I think some I have just been allowing myself to be open to all kinds of hurt, and being walked over emotionally, and just in general. I definitely feel some I’m a nice guy, and fall prey to that old “adage”… *sighs, shaking his head*

I felt something was off Monday after getting back from my trip and finishing my errands, in the evening, and some all yesterday… Something just felt… “wrong”… After getting home from visiting with my usual Tuesday group of friends it seems that that feeling was definitely not unfounded. *sighs* It was with someone else, but involving me. I’m not going into any details, not wanting to cause any drama, but am feeling a little down and hurt. Partly I'm venting here... releasing the frustration, and letting go. Seems I caused a little pain to someone with my own actions or inaction, or how I came off… and simple things being misinterpreted... and I feel just feel so stupid… It just hurts seeing things that were so close, start drifting apart you know? :/ Perhaps blaming myself more on things, than I should, when in any situation it takes two to tango... Yea I know I tend to be hard on myself, but I am trying to be better…

I’m just going to take the lessons learned, from what transpired, and use that and still try to continue with my new years resolution on trying to be a better person. I’ve still got a long way to go… I’m not perfect by any means, and never will be… I just wish I knew what I really wanted out of life right now. Some of the things that transpired make me feel like closing my own doors, and not be very open at all... Not be as trusting of others. For it seems every time I do, things end up going wrong. I just wish something would go right for once, even not in a relationship, just opening up on a deep level with someone, even just trying to have a deep bond of friendship and all... I am not one to tease others, sabotage things, that isn't who I am or how I do things... I never try to come off like that. I do like trying to do things that I think others will enjoy though... I do put others before myself, not meaning I'm subservient or anything though... *shrugs* I just feel so very unsure, of many things especially in myself, sometimes not sure how to act, or present myself, or how to react to others and things of that nature. In some situations, especially those pertaining to relationships that start going to more than just friendships... Or someone perceiving something from me... and me not sure how to go about anything... Or my perception of things... *sighs* Perhaps both sides seeing something that isn’t really there, or interpreting things incorrectly… Not that there isn't interest persay... I just don’t know… *lowers his head, ears drooping*

This isn’t any kind of plea for sympathy or pity… I’m just airing my thoughts, and this might be the last I do of this nature on this journal. I am also thinking of taking a bit of an online hiatus, re-gather my thoughts… Take in and re-evaluate everything… Take my own ‘sabbatical’ from things in general. Like if "god gives you lemons"... "You find a new god"! kind of thing... *chuckles* That's about all the humor you'll get out of me for now...

I continue though, to move forward, putting one foot in front of the other, down that long road which we call life. Ever learning, ever pushing, striving for something, perhaps not fully attainable, but I’d like to think “set one’s goals high”, and try reaching and not settling for second best… I just still need to properly set goals, or perhaps set more attainable ones. Figure out what I really want… in life and in general… Gain some confidence perhaps… I don’t know…

I just feel so lost, and in many ways very much alone…

I’m not even sure if I should leave comments for this post… I think I will, but will have them screened. This isn’t any plea for attention or anything of that nature… I may be around here or there, if anyone wants to talk… I’m sorry in advance… to everyone. I care about you all, and in some cases, perhaps I care TOO much… I just think I also need some time to myself here… *disappears down a winding road*
I scheduled two of these using the last of my vacation/personal days. I already spent the first one with a new friend of mine. This past weekend went on a road trip up to Oklahoma to hang out with [livejournal.com profile] okidokicoyote. The only annoying thing was the 3hr. drive… :/ *gruffs* That was really my only gripe. He was going to come down the weekend after Thanksgiving, but had some car troubles. I had scheduled this a month or two ago and wasn't sure how to spend that first weekend and so I did that road trip. He and I have plans for something fursuit wise for the up coming convention Furry Fiesta here in the Texas area. I also recently heard some good news that their room block is close to full which is awesome. I'm glad I got my room reserved already!

This coming weekend I plan on being at my brother's graduation, and that will be another long drive… *grumbles* I wish it wasn't so far away, but *shrugs* cest la vie… I at first heard from someone it was a 3hr. drive, but seems from where I work/live it is only an hour and a half. I'm happy he's going to be graduated he's been chomping at the bit to be done with school. I may eventually go back for a master's degree, but not just yet. I have been enjoying this year of freedom from school.

I have plans next weekend trying to work out with a friend to come down to visit as I have another 4day weekend and he's been wanting to visit. He is also one of many I plan on visiting outside of a convention.

So… Here is my trip recap!

Read more... )

A thunderstorm blew through last night and seems we're in for some colder weather. I want this week to be over already. I want to have it be my brother's graduation time and give him a royal celebration for staying the course and finishing and not settling for that inferior degree and getting his Bachelors of Fine Arts. I'm very proud of him. I just wish things weren't so hard on him, he's been struggling to get a job in his field and I've been having a hard time myself finding a job in my course of study too.

Well I thank you all for reading… I know it was long, but I like to keep this journal and write things like I do to try to preserve memories and to let you all know what is going on in my life. I sometimes am not the most attentive to everyone in LJ I know I don't comment as often as I should but I do try to read… I had a lot of things to catch up on as this past weekend I pretty much was making sure NOT to be on the internet.

Take care! *hugs* I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday season!

I know this report is a little late. I’ve just been busy with Thanksgiving stuff, and things of that nature dealing with getting ready for this holiday season. I also worked “Black Friday” even though I had it off last year, but truthfully 2.5x pay isn’t so bad you know. I really did enjoy MFF and here is my recounting of the experience. Oh and if I forget some names, please remind me as it's been a while... I can't remember everyone... It was an awesome convention!Read more... )

So there you have it my belated con report. I've been doing lots of cleaning and I’m currently in the process of sending out Christmas gifts and other things like that and all the preparations for this Holiday season.

Doesn't keep the doctor away, but is a good start to this holiday! I just wanted to wish everyone a happy and safe Thanksgiving that celebrate it. I will be heading off to enjoy time with my family followed by a gathering of friends at my apartment later this evening. I wish those who are traveling a safe and pleasant journey. Be sure to enjoy yourselves and the company therein. I know I'm thankful for those close to me.

I also want to wish a belated birthday to thanksgiving whelps like [livejournal.com profile] farraptor, [livejournal.com profile] akseawolf, and [livejournal.com profile] goggremlin. I know a lot of you I wished it in person and others I've missed here in LJ as I've not been very diligent in posting.

All in all I hope everyone has a great holiday and with Christmas coming up hope things go well there too.

**EDIT**: I also wish to give a Happy Hyena Day to [livejournal.com profile] baja_hyena! :)
I am back from MFF this past weekend. It was a fun convention and I want to thank the staff and friends who who made the convention a total blast! If there are any pics or vids of me in suit please link me! :)

Yesterday was a normal day at work, nothing all that special or grand. Things were fine and all, just had a number of things on my mind as soon as I got home. I don’t know what it was, but last night I was definitely hit with a bug to just go walking and enjoy the evening. I found part of the reason though as the night was crisp, felt wonderful and the moon was bright, full and beautiful. I believe it was calling to me. *chuckles* Perhaps it is that time of the month ya know for wolves? :P

I wasn’t exactly alone while walking though, I was talking to a couple of good friends, one fox I’ve known for a few years, and after our long talk and going inside refreshing a little I got online and someone else wanted to talk to me… So… I went on a second walk, talking with a coyote. Both times walked for quite some time, just talking in general, getting things out in the open, getting things off my chest, hearing their thoughts on their own points in life, giving my advice if I could offer any, or just being there as a sounding board and listening as they were being that for me. Sometimes it takes a different perspective outside of the normal faces one sees to help get a clearer picture, because sometimes the closest to you that you see on a regular basis can be a bit more biased one way or another…

Some today... wasn't my day... I at least taught my brother a good poi spinning move!

That was about the only highlight though, was very stressed out and had a lot on my mind and in the back of my head.

I also sent off an email to someone as I was feeling very down and felt things were quite distant... I feel like the world's biggest fool... Like an unwanted piece of garbage, no matter what I do... Like I I can't seem to do anything right... Not like it really matters in any case. I'm gonna shut my muzzle... I'm partly thinking of disappearing for a while online... not like it would matter much or change how things have been especially with one person.... *sighs* I probably shouldn't let things get to me as I do... I try not to focus on certain things, but can't seem to help myself... I should probably stop caring as deeply as I do, learn not to be as open and more reserved with my feelings and not as "open book" as it were, or wear my heart on my sleeve. I'm not even sure what I really want right now... Things are ok for the most part, but some things feel so empty and hollow. At least only on one side of things. In truth everything else is fine and I shouldn't let myself get down and out because of one aspect. There is only so much I can change truth be told... We can only change what we have control over which in many cases is not that much, but we are in control of ourselves and I'm going to work with that... Still just wish things were different...

I know I haven’t posted in the past week I’ve been a little busy… I just wanted to post about the fun weekend just had going to the Texas Renaissance Festival! It was a fun weekend and camping trip. I’ll need to make sure to be a bit more prepared next time around camping wise though…

I bought a sleepingbag that was pretty interesting with an inflatable pillow that has a felt cover so that you’re not exactly sleeping on slippery plastic. I left after work @ 4:30 and got over to Celyddon’s apartment. We got things packed and left with Savrin in tow, we spent the night Friday and Saturday and came back Sunday. The traffic was horrible getting out of Dallas , and unfortunately even though we left first another group consisting of Guardian and Jen got there before us. *shrugs* We met up with Neil, a friend of both mine and Celyddon’s, who was already camping there for the weekend. We got our tent setup by car headlights and where some people went to sleep I went out with Neil to the bonfire that evening and spun fire. He is a fairly accomplished staff spinner and we had some fun spinning and even doing one move together that set the crowd wild. We couldn’t get near the bonfire at all because of the crowd around it. Had some fun, gave the crowd a show, and then went to bed. It was cold and a bit uncomfortable, but did finally get to sleep.

Saturday morning got up, made some breakfast and got ready for the fair. The rest of the group that was going to join us that didn’t arrive the previous night were joining us today. It was also the birthday of a person in Neil’s group and we wished her a happy birthday. We then split up for the day. I was primarily with Guardian, Savrin, Jen, Celyddon, and some here and there got split up from them when looking at a shop here or there. Met up with my other roomie and roamed the fair together. We did meet up with the other half of the large fur group that was coming and met up at a booth that is also run by furs as well, a tail shop of all things. *chuckles* We even had a group photo done. I did bring my camera and tried taking interesting photos of things for a couple friends who wanted me to photo the experience. I didn’t take a lot of photos, but did of some things like an interesting dragon costume, a centaur, and things like that. The Texas Renaissance Fair is very fantasy oriented, and a lot of costumes people come up with are amazing.

We did some shopping. I picked up a tankard holder that has a pewter wolf on it, as well as a wolf necklace to add to my collection. I also tried out a new pair of boots that will be shipped to me shortly. I was allowed to wear the boots the day to see how I liked them, and all. They are part of a costume that I wanted to wear, but one major piece didn’t make it. :/ *shrugs* Cest la vie, the outfit I was wearing was one I have constructed out of years of buying bits and pieces of costume pieces. I’d kinda say it is a mix of lower class noble, bard, and pirate/swashbuckler. I even have a replica flintlock pistol that I forgot that I plan on adding to that costume. We did make sure that Savrin and Jen were subjected to the Dead Bob Show. *snickers evily* We had some food and drink at the fair. I did try a new concoction that I think was part of the theme of the fair this year, called a “Romantic Drink”… It was tasty and all, but nothing all that “special”. Not like anything of that nature is “real”… I don’t believe in a lot of silly things like that, like love potions, or much on the whole “love” thing in general. *shrugs* :P It came in a souvenir cup and I left it with Amara… and forgot to bring it home. I’ll have to see about how to get it sent to me. We attended a cool pirate auction, and I won an item with a raffle ticket and got a real neat oriental fan! I did attend a bit of a joust and took some pictures, and accidentally missed seeing one side of the fair because we got informed that our campsite had been messed with. So we left and found that it was most likely wind that did it, nothing was stolen, and went back in. We missed the raffle for another giveaway, but no biggie. I went back to the boot store and gave them back to put on a new sole, and got my old boots back. I re-laced my current boots up and got out in time to watch the fireworks and then went out of the fair, got back to the campsite and the large group of us got food going.

It was nice hanging out with the large group, even though I hardly knew anyone. Once we were well fed, Neil, Celyddon, another poi spinner, and myself went to go spin fire at the big bonfire. We first stopped off at the next door campsite who helped Neil take such a large area for all of our group. We gave them a private fire spinning show and then all four of us went out to the bonfire and had a lot of fun. I posted two videos, one of me, and one of Celyddon spinning. I haven’t posted the group spin though. When we first got there, to kinda dazzle the crowd we all four went out at once, and that got everyone away from the bonfire and watching us. That was quite fun, and then we each individually spun here and there. There were a couple of other fire spinners out there, one with a staff, and another with a fire sphere for contact juggling. One of the guys did not know his own limits and definitely should not have been doing fire at all… *shrugs* We had one last group spin before calling it a night for the fire spinning. I stayed around the bonfire played some percussion adding to the drum circle there, and then eventually went back to the campsite, talked with people before going to bed.

Sunday got up early, which was weird. I slept fairly well, better than Saturday night, as I learned a vital secret to keep warm, and had breakfast that was prepared by people there and packed up, tent and everything. Said goodbyes and left for home. We made one stop off and then got back into town around 2-3pm. Then eventually went home, met up with my brother for a bit… Definitely found his weekend wasn’t the best for him. *grumbles and growls* We spent some time talking about things though over pizza. I just wish things would go right for him, and for myself in some regards… In the end, such is life and life goes on.
Here is my long overdue Oklacon report. I had tons of fun at this convention and more than likely will return next year. The theme definitely has my interest I’ll say that much. This was my first outdoor con and for next time I think I should probably get some sandals for my fursuit footpaws in retrospect and be sure to watch the terrain better. I met a whole lot of cool new people and had tons of fun. I’ll post about my awesome weekend at the Texas Renaissance Festival next post.

Sorry about the time it took me to write it, as I got busy and had some other things come up like going to the Texas Renaissance Festival before fully writing this out. I know it’s a lot to read, but I like to be thorough and even then I still forget things, people, and other stuff so I apologize in advance.

"Remember... Remember... The fifth of November, the gunpowder treason and plot. I see no reason why the gunpowder treason should ever be forgot."

Or... Guy Fawkes Day. A day that should be remembered, because the government should fear it's people.

All I gotta say is that the election definitely went like I thought it would and I'm glad. I felt almost whoever the Democrats put forth would get elected. Lets see now if some change does happen in the government. I don't think this is going to be the horrible thing some people believe it to be. So we have a new president for 4yrs. If he messes up we elect another, or if he does badly enough to warrant impeachment during his term... It all remains to be seen. I'd be happy if some good change happened you know?

Just wanting to wish everyone a fun All Hallow's Eve, or Samhain!

I have plans to hang with friends this evening and watch movies. What better way to spend it... Well I can think of one or two other good ways, but being with friends is always awesome.

Oh, saw some other people posting this meme and I decided to bite... So this is my "Halloween Treat" to you all. :)

    "Get to Know Me" Meme

Ask me a question about anything you want...love, life, hobbies, whatever. All answers will be posted in the comments section of this entry unless you leave me an email address and ask me to respond privately to the question. This is totally open, and pretty much everything is fair game.

Comments are unscreened... if you want to ask something in private just PM me

Just got back from Oklacon! I had a lot of fun and may return again next year if able to. :) Just wanted to post that I'm back. I'll post a con report later, but I want to thank all the Oklacon staff for the fun time, and all the new furs I met! You all made it a fun experience! ^_^

Last night was pretty fun actually. Went out to Screams with a group of friends. We had a grand total of 10, 2 shy of the group rate, but I was very happy with the turnout. We got there around 9pm and went through all the attractions minus the one you had to pay a bit extra for. We all had a lot of fun, though while waiting in line for one of the newer attractions the line pretty much went to a dead crawl because it looked like someone assaulted one of the workers. :/ Stupidity abound it seems especially at a place where alcohol is involved because at the concessions they sell beer. It is at the same grounds that Scarborough Fair is and it is legal. I just am annoyed that someone would assault a worker. You go there to get "scared" or whatnot. In the end as I said went through all the rides, it was good hanging out with friends. Going to be doing laundry and whatnot this weekend and get ready for Oklacon next weekend.

Well found something else out. If anyone tried texting me last night till my lunch break I was unable to receive text messages. I had to call AT&T to get this resolved, but I now have things working and can receive text messages!

So if anyone tried text me before now...

Please resend any texts sent to me!

I did not receive any from last night till 1pm today. :(

Thank you!

P.s. If you haven't given me your contact info please check out my previous entry. I had a phone emergency and lost a number of contacts even though the AT&T store said they transferred them all. The previous entry has screened comments if you wish to give me your number there, or message me on my IM's or email me your information ok? :)
Hey!

My cellphone died. I had a Motorola Razr, and the lcd screen stopped working. I was able to dial out, but couldn't see the menu, or contacts or anything. I tried everything I knew of like unplug and plug the battery, and try to reset the phone, and couldn't get it to work. :( So I had to get a new one. I upgraded to an iPhone, since I was eligible to. I got a 8Gb one as I didn't need the 16Gb one.

Unfortunately I lost a lot of contacts even though the AT&T store said they transferred all contacts from my previous phone's memory and sim to my new phone. For those that have my tn# feel free to text or call me. When texting me please be sure to say who it is from. Especially those overseas text me please so I can get your number with proper country codes.

All others... I humbly request that my friends who do not have my telephone # and want it to give me your number and I will call/text to give you my phone # if you want.

I made one backup a while long while back but recent phone numbers like from people added this year at cons like FC, or later are not in my book. Please email me minstrelwolf [at] gmail [dot] com, or send a message here. All comments will be screened.

Thanks! :)

Hope to get in touch soon!

P.s. Now to figure this new phone out... :>

Since there is no gaming this Friday I propose to my fellow local friends the possibility of going out to Screams as this will be the last weekend before Oklacon to do anything for Halloween before the actual Friday of that particular magical and scary night.

I propose we meet at Savrin's apartment as a gathering point to carpool from there and leave around 8pm. I know a couple people like [livejournal.com profile] guardlion wants to join and he gets off work @ 7pm. Costumes are optional. I'm not sure if I'm gonna dress up.

Any who want to go don't have to carpool with us, and we should be at there around 9pm. I hope to see people there. ^_^

I just wanted to wish a happy birthday to the awesome [livejournal.com profile] dingybatty!!! :) I hope you have fun today and all the best of wishes. *hugs*

The past weekend was actually very eventful. I hung out with a local group of furs on Saturday for the usual "First Saturday Meet" I even picked up a Wii Fit that I've been searching for. I've been looking for one for months actually. I still have yet to play with it, but I think I'll try to use it to help in the interim of not going to the gym as our apartment still has no deal with the local gym after the gym went 24/7. They have an issue with the gym being unstaffed after a certain point even with all gym members having to sign a waiver and understand that there are times when it is not staffed. *shrugs* I may just up and pay a regular membership as I just want to get back to working out and such.

Sunday I went with a group of friends including one of [livejournal.com profile] savrin's co-workers, to the State Fair. The outing in general was quite fun indeed, it was a shame though that my brother wasn't able to join and his bf from out of town. We saw lots of people selling wares, ate some interesting foods, including the new "fried" thing there chicken fried bacon. It is just regular fried bacon that is then battered and fried. Nothing all that great in my opinion. Rode some rides, as well and won't soon forget the cramped ferris wheel. *snickers* Lots of fun antics were had by all parties, also had fun with a roller coaster, some bumpercars, and a centrifugal force machine. Then afterwards I ate dinner with my brother and his bf, then watched the movie Iron Man.

The rest of the past month has been uneventful, though gonna hang with friends tonight to wish a local a happy going away. Hope he comes back to Texas soon as he seems to yo-yo back, leaving for a bit and always coming back to Texas. :P This night bodes to be much fun.
I know my last post was mostly fluff, but here is a regular post on what things have been going on here lately. Oh and check out my Fur Affinity account as one of the recent submissions is in reference to my previous talk like a pirate day post about some, visual "treasure". Had photos taken by Regek near my apartment at the lake, trying to make a RL version of a pic I had commissioned a few months ago.

Truthfully... everything else in life? Not a whole lot out of the ordinary. Things are ok. Nothing worthy of note... I wake up, go to work, go home, and the regular routine there. Still looking for another job. I'm going to again revamp my resume again, but current work schedule 8am - 5pm makes interviews kinda hard to schedule. Speaking of jobs and interviews Celyddon got a new job and recently had a friend gathering to wish her well with this new job. On the homestead side, I recently visited my folks with my brother as it had been over a month since seeing them and had a good visit. I have also hung out with the local group of friends here and things like that.

I haven't been able to work out here recently like I've been wanting to as our apartment's agreement with the gym we've been using expired. The gym went 24/7 and there are times it is unstaffed which made our apartment not sure if they wanted to continue their relationship with the gym. So what this means is either go find another gym, sign up as a regular member to the current gym, or just do some workout stuff around the apartment, like a situp, pushup, and that kind of routine. Maybe our apartment will get another workout room... Hopefully some decent equipment and not let kids ruin the stuff and keep tighter security. Means I don't have to leave the complex to workout. :P

One gathering of note was a recent party held at Damien's apartment. The place was packed! Lots of friends, new and old. Lots of fun was had. We were also kinda wishing Spike a fond farewell as he is moving away from Texas (but hopefully only for a little while). He's moving for some good reasons, job & to be with someone. I wish the best of luck there. In the end the party was much fun and next time I'm going to bring my fursuit. :P One other person brought theirs and I'm gonna bring mine next party. This should definitely be interesting. ^_^

I also recently got some new toys from flowtoys to play with. I got a set of crystal poi with flow handles and another set of handles to interchange if I don't want light up handles. I'm still working on trying to get some behind the back stuff, and with Celyddon was teaching my brother the other day as well.

My Xbox360 had problems and I had to send it off to be fixed. I should have done like what Loiosh said and said it was 3red rings, but I didn't... :/ Ah well it's gonna get fixed that's what matters. I've got other things to enjoy besides video games and whatnot.

Con wise I find that I might possibly be able to go to Oklacon, but that depends on rooming arrangements and riding stuff to and from the convention. It would be my first time there at that con. MFF is still a go and I used some of my airline miles for a free trip so all is good. The outdoors stuff definitely appeals to me as I have another friend of mine wanting me to go to Feral. There are some others starting up a new outdoors kind of con in 2009 that people are wanting me to attend as well.

Not much else really... No real big news.

Arr Matey's!

Today be talk like a pirate day! I just be posting here to inform ye all of my latest excapades. I guess ye could say I celebrated a wee bit early as Wednesday I was searching for booty near the lake with a good scallywag. I may even have pictures of those exploits to bring you visual treasure.

Other than that I be working and things 'o that nature, I've nae been up to much though I will be taking of m'treasures to be fixed after I be getting off werk. Then I will get with the rest of my gaming crew to have fun later this evening. No real plans for this weekend, but will see about what mischief can be found.

That be all!

Yarr!

I decided to ante up and get the game. It is actually pretty fun creating things. I bet lots of other people with better 3D modeling can make better stuff. I have seen some very well put together animals. This is actually pretty fun. The game doesn't fully live up to the "hype" that they were building up, but it is a fun game regardless and is cool to mess around with building things and whatnot. If you have an account lemme know your name so I can add you. Mine is GeminiTempus as sharing the account with my brother.

EDIT: Yea I know about the DRM crap but I'm not gonna let that crap keep me from enjoying a game that is fun and interesting. I haven't gotten past the Tribal stage yet and cant' wait to get to civilization and space. :)

I have my new work schedule for the next couple months (till I find another job). I like the hours, though wish I was working a little later. This is going to make scheduling interviews a little hard, but at least I will be able to work out at the gym on a better basis. I also get 1 hour lunches instead of 30 minutes. I at least still keep my weekends off. ^_^

  • Sunday: OFF

  • Monday: 8:00am - 5:00pm

  • Tuesday: 8:00am - 5:00pm

  • Wednesday: 8:00am - 5:00pm

  • Thursday: 8:00am - 5:00pm

  • Friday: 8:00am - 4:30pm

  • Saturday: OFF
I personally would prefer a 10am - 7pm shift because now I'm gonna have to deal with traffic, but ya have to take the good with the bad. I haven't gotten any calls or interviews since Traveler's Insurance had a phone interview with me a while back... :/ *grumbles* Ah well... cest la vie. I still gotta keep trying and stuff.

I know I've not posted in a while... I thank people for their concern over my last post. As I said before things are fine, I just needed a bit of time to myself, have had lots on my mind still even now, but nothing to worry about too much for the time being. Things are good for the most part all truth-be-told. I've just not been much up on "broadcasting" what has been going on in my life in this journal.

I've just been kinda busy, but not that I haven't tried paying attention to things here, becuase I still try to be there for those I care about, for example have tried helping people out like giving a few donations here and there to some friends in need and things like that. Not really a lot has gone on, nothing big anyway, and mostly I've just been busy and had taken a bit of a hiatus from LJ, though have been around online some here and there and have kept in contact with friends and all. I've not been totally incognito. In some people's cases wish others would keep in better contact and communication with me, but that's besides the point.

Some things of note... I was part of a 4th of July parade with the local drummer circle people that I've been hanging with at the club where I've been going to spin fire. I spun my day poi along with one other "spinnder". I'm still trying to learn more tricks as I feel still like a novice at best... I want to get better at so many things. I've come up with some new music, one I've posted to my FA, others I haven't yet. I've also commissioned art that I plan on posting to my FA at some point.

I also want to wish birthdays to numerous people that I missed while on hiatus, including the most recent. :) Hope you all have had fun on the yearly celebration of your birth. ^_^

I've just been working, been trying to find another job still, but haven't had any luck yet. I did have one phone interview, but haven't heard anything back since. I went a little lax here in the job search with MFM coming up and not wanting to miss that con, but goign to get my tail-end in gear and apply even more heavily. I'm going to revamp my resume/cv and things like that.

Speaking of MFM though I am hoping this won't be the case, but a long while back I sent off my fursuit to his creator ([livejournal.com profile] ww_creations), for some repairs and at first when I thought I might make AC could've had it fixed for that, but since I didn't go I let my stuff be pushed back for other things to be finished for that convention, but it seems that I might not have my suit back for MFM due to USPS being stupid... *grumbles* :/ There are still a few days left before, and I'm hoping, but if it doesn't happen it isn't a big deal I will enjoy the con regardless... The worst case scenario is that it disappears in the mail and I don't get my suit I'm wondering what to do if that were to happen...

I really need this vacation... Hope to see lots of my friends there! ^_^

I think perhaps this is the cynical or pessimistic side of me talking but some here lately I've slowly been feeling sort of detached from things in general… Some of this post I probably should have posted a nice while back, just unfortunately some things remain "close to the heart" even long after things should have been buried. Some things now have come to be realized after letting go of some burdens. It is hard to explain to tell the truth. I'm not sure how to describe it really. Lately I find it hard to "put my heart" into things I guess you could say. Sometimes it feels hard for me to put passion into the things I do. Some days things are fine, others kind of blah, the usual ups and downs, and other times a little more than just the usual doldrums. I feel unsure of myself and lots of times feel so alone inside and also some I feel like I'm worthless... My heart feels "deadened", detached kinda... Things just feel hollow, "distant", and empty. Most things are going fine, truthfully... it's just hard to describe these feelings that happen every now and then, sometimes staying for a while, but eventually they go away… These feelings will pass. I'm just venting here… I'm not trying to be bitter, or mean, or anything else. So please bear with this rambling wolf, just getting things off my chest...

I know I shouldn't feel that way. I have my good days and bad days. I have lots of good things going for me as well. Some days feel like I'm just "going through the motions"… I know other people feel like this. Sometimes it's just the usual dull routine consisting of "wake up", "work", "eat", "sleep", and just keep on repeating that cycle pretty much. I do hang with friends and have fun and stuff. I have fun and am fun to be around and stuff. What I'm more talking about isn't the usual day-to-day… as I said before it's hard to describe. I work to make a living, make money, and then use that money for things… I save for the future, what kind of future… I'm not sure. *shrugs* The future is uncertain, but I do what I can, especially for friends and people I care about. I even try my best to help out others to the best of my ability.

Recent case in point: I helped out a former co-worker... (who I felt was kind of a friend) and unfortunately things in her life have been going very downhill... I don't think I'm ever going to see a dime of the money I let her borrow. I am happy I helped, but she hasn't been trying to keep in touch or anything… I thought a lot better of her, but now have been hearing some rumors around work about her and how she was fired from here have been making me second guess if I should have given her the amount I did. *shrugs* Too late now, but at least I did help some, but next time around with anyone I will be a bit more cautious, and/or not give that much money to help. *sighs* It just feels some like I try my best for others and end up getting burned... In truth it wasn't about the money it was to help someone and at least I did accomplish that...

Back to what this was going on about in regards to the title of this post as I've been rambling a little… I guess I tend to do that, but I'd like to think that some of my long written posts give people insight into the person that is me, my views, my thoughts, and what makes up "me"… Granted I'm not the greatest writer. I'm not always the most open with my thoughts. I am not an "open book", but I do try to let people know how things are with me. I guess I've just been slowly coming to a few realizations in life some brought on by some very hard lessons learned and things of that nature. So without further ado...

I've come to realize that it seems at least to me like there is No Such Thing...

As a "knight in shining armor"… At least not for me anyway... Well I try to be one, and be there for others that I care about, but in the sense I'm more talking about is the more romantic sense... Here's a question for you… What happens when a knight in shining armor needs another knight in shining armor? I've asked myself that question many times... Some I wonder if I tried hard enough, because at times I've felt like the world's biggest fool when it comes to relationships, especially in the area of second chances... I have felt some that on the other end they didn't try their hardest for me. *shrugs* Perhaps a little selfish way to look at things... I don't know... I'm not trying to be unfair... if I had the capability and wasn't tied down at the time with school a couple years ago, I thought of moving over seas myself... I have still thought of doing that... I wish I had done better on my end to convey my feelings, and things unsaid... Communication is a big thing in any kind of relationship from friendship all the way to mates. Sometimes things precious do need to be protected, and time apart can put a strain on things, when the bond is that deep and there is a need and longing to be with the one you love. Distance is a hindering factor unfortunately... Long distance relationships are so hard... I know this from experience... *sighs* I try to protect those I care for, but what about when, say someone needs protecting? Aren't some things worth protecting? I guess I wasn't worth it... *lowers his head* I know to me there are some things worth more than all the money in the world and worth fighting for... Just here lately I have felt rather worthless in the eyes of some... Because obviously I wasn't really worth anything, or enough really... :/ *sighs* Not enough to be with in the end...

For those wondering, here's a VERY brief summary. These feelings have stemmed from a long distance relationship with someone very dear to me over seas that got torn asunder a couple years ago, when someone closer in the US tried getting close to me. I still feel so stupid over some of what happened, because I broke up with the guy overseas (that I loved more), because it was mostly dealing with me being unsure if things would work out and that we'd be able to be together... Not sure on him moving to be with me. I was stuck in school at the time, and unable to go anywhere. At first no real set time-frame for us to be together until someone else came into the picture. (Or at least that is how it felt to me) Then, it was going to be around 3+ years before we could be together, due to money and varying factors, and I fell pray to my own insecurities and doubt. Even friends of mine and my brother thought that was definitely a very unfair set of circumstances, and doubted that the one overseas would move here... That lots could change in that kind of timespan. So I broke up with the one over seas, though things with the one here in the US didn't last. Believe me I made many mistakes, like giving the person who was here in the US a second chance, because I didn't even think I had a second chance with the guy from overseas. If things had been made more aware to me I wouldn't have given that second chance to the other guy, but hind sight is 20/20... Things happened and now here I am… Not with anyone, ripped to shreds inside, and nothing to really show for it except a broken heart that has been mending and me trying to build a wall around it, unsure of letting anyone that close to me again. The one overseas and I still have a special bond that even he has acknowledged, even him going to the point of saying that we are "soul mates", but especially lately... I find myself questioning even that... Well not questioning, exactly, but things have definitely felt more "distant" before we even got together, and during things that happened the past couple years. Things definitely haven't felt that close here lately. I find myself wondering because once I had felt like there might be the possibility of getting back together, possibly a 3rd chance. That though, I've felt things dwindling away slowly. He has said that he still cares for me and can't rule out the possibility, but within that 3/4yr. time frame that he gave me after all this has happened it seems he's found someone there locally to be with. *sighs* That was one of my greatest fears, even before anyone else came into the picture on my end, before things happened, and it looks like it definitely came true. He even has said he still has feelings for me and that there is still a possibility of things between us, but he's with someone right now... So... tables turned it is me echoing things on my end that he went through with me and the other person here in the US. I know his feelings have waned, where mine really hadn't. I'm not trying to get between him and this other person... The person that he is with though, is real lucky... He's with someone very special, that I still care for and love. In the end I just want him to be happy. I should just give up on him and me... I just wish things had been different... I can't really compare to someone who he's able to see on a regular basis. He says they're happy... Just wish it was me that made him happy. If only I had been enough for him to really come to be with me sooner, and none of this would have happened in the first place. *sighs* I'm not trying to be unfair here, or hurt anyone's feelings or badmouth, but this is really how I've felt for the longest time...

I know I'm not perfect, far from it... I'm working on things… I'm still trying to be a better person, for myself, and for others. I don't know what people see in me... People say that I'm a "nice guy", "handsome", "cute", and other things of that nature, and I personally don't think I match any of those descriptions. I wish I did, truth be told… Granted I am usually very modest and such, a little shy, because in my mind, if I was "all that and a bag of chips" then why are things like they are now? If I was all that special... *sighs* I'm not something special or all that... I've already been shown before I am not... Or else someone would be here with me right now... I really wonder what people have even seen in me, but that's beside the point. I just seem to be very unlucky. I just wish things would go right for me for a change in the whole "love" thing... or really just in the grand scheme of things. Some, it just feels like I can't seem to do anything right ever. Perhaps some things are not all my fault, but it sure feels like it sometimes.

I'm done looking at what has been over and done... It isn't going to change what is here and now. I still will remember many of the good times, but especially when I needed a ship to come to port one wasn't there... Things would have turned out VERY different, and I wish more than anything... but *sighs* When I needed someone... something else got in the way be it job/career, internet popularity and such in one case... or say a car, money/finances, or something like pride. Something that got in the way of love... Some reasons valid, to a point... Some, not so much... I've made some bad decisions here and there, definitely made some mistakes and learned from them. I know I'm definitely paying for them dearly. I am not co-dependent or "need" to be with anyone, it's just that... Sometimes I find myself wishing I had someone by my side... It doesn't matter to me male or female, as I've been with both, and believe me I know both sides have their own baggage... Even myself. I just would like someone more than just a friend, wanting someone to share my life and soul with, but I don't think that is ever going to happen... Perhaps I'm too much of a romantic at heart. I do not want someone to be with necessarily to protect me. I can take care of myself, but in the end I'm tougher for what I have been through. I don't really "need" to be protected. I wish I could remove these lonely feelings from my heart... *lowers his head* I shouldn't be feeling like this, especially after how long it's been, and yet... :/ I wish I could stop my heart from yearning at times... All it has really ever gotten me is a lot of pain.

When I look back on things I burdened myself a bit too much, lots of things weren't all "my" fault. But... what's done is done and all that. I know I have issues myself. Everyone does... We live, learn, deal with people's differences, and grow. That is how friendships and deep bonds are formed. One thing I know is I'm not the only one who has issues with this, which is dealing with charity and not wanting to receive any, and more than willing to give to others… I know a lot of those feelings, all too well. I never like to feel indebted to anyone. There is a difference though. Wanting to make it on your own is one thing, but no can always be a rock of Gibraltar. Sometimes to go the distance for the one you love it takes a leap of faith and being there for one another. I'd be willing to go to the ends of the earth, and would do whatever it takes... but only for the right reasons, but those are slowly dwindling… *sighs* Perhaps some I'm being a hypocrite, but I know this from experience, as I've tried standing alone. In truth some, I've been finding myself feeling just fine with being alone, and not really needing anyone. I have lots of things going for me, some great friends, and things like that... I just wish I could rid myself of some of these feelings, and things of that nature...

I try not to focus on things... I've really been trying not to. *grumbles* I just can't seem to get things to get out of the back of my head, or things out of my heart. I still some feel like just fully giving up, much as I hate to do so... It feels like every month since January has been where the feelings of being "detached" and "distant" have been coming from... Since it seems that small glimmer of hope is dying. I don't really want to give up because of how deep my feelings are and how much I love him, but in the end... I have to face facts... I wasn't what he REALLY wanted, not enough to make that leap of faith a few years ago. I was more than willing to help use my own funds to bring him here, and support us, because I wanted him to be with me that badly... I've been saving for the future, and I wanted him to be with me in that "future"... *shrugs* He didn't want my help. I guess I wasn't worth crossing the ocean for or worth protecting... When all I really needed was him... to have and to hold... to alleviate all doubts and fears that I had... Perhaps I didn't voice my feelings or uncertainties properly, or make some things as apparent, but still... We possibly needed to communicate things better on different levels... *sighs* It doesn't really matter now... Perhaps it's better this way... *lowers his head, wiping away tears* I don't know why I still feel like I do after everything... I still love him dearly. At least the good thing is that I am pretty much over things. I just want him to be happy, even if I am not in the picture. In some ways I feel it best to possibly just disappear... *sighs* It isn't like that will be much of a change to how things currently have been recently on his end...

I will never forget someone who I have such a deep bond with... It's just been so hard to fully move on. I know he already did, but I'm just about there... Slowly but surely. Much as I wish I could change things, it isn't up to me... One thing we can always be certain of is that things change, people, places, everything... I just really need to learn when to give up, as well as when to take my losses, and fade away... and know where I'm not really wanted. I am done lamenting over love lost or unrequited love.

Things as I said are good. Sometimes not fully 'happy' but then again there are different ways that one can be happy and take heart in things which I'm doing. Happiness isn't being with someone else, it is many things. Mostly it is just a mindset and for the most part I have been happy. Things could be a lot worse. There are things that I'd like or wish could be better, but as a whole… Things are not that bad truth-be-told. I'm living my life and in truth having fun with many things.

I'm not sure if my heart can take the stress of another relationship and might be better off not being in one. I know I am someone special, deserving of something, someone... Even though sometimes I think I'm not. We'll have to see how things go though… I'm not totally closing myself off from things, but also after a lot of soul searching it isn't that I'm not open to being in a relationship, but I am thinking I shouldn't have to lower my standards for one. I did once, and got very burned... I just hope that good things do come to those who wait... That nice guys don't finish last... I just wish I had more patience and understanding years ago.... Sometimes you never know what you have till it's gone they say. *sighs and shrugs* I'm flexible in many regards, but one of the closest relationships I've ever been in took a long while to form and the next one I come into may take that long to form. I do want something of that caliber... That was something special and I believe I deserve something like that, or close to it. I'm trying not to be closed minded, or be stuck up or arrogant... I'm just going to be realistic because it takes a while at least for me to open up to anyone on that deep of a level. Should anyone be willing to try... I'm not going to just jump into anything head first. That's a recipe for disaster. So just going to have to see how things go, if and when that may ever happen...

So you all now know what has had me down here lately. I've just been very quiet about things. I think I need to really take some time to be alone right now... To think about things and work out where I want to go in life. I may not be posting here or really be online much if at all... So this is goodbye in advance...

In the mean time, I plan on enjoying life and things of that nature. There are so many things out there to experience and enjoy. :) I will have to see what tomorrow and other days beyond that bring.

I got my car back today and all is well so far. I haven't heard anything back from my insurance as the kid and his parents tried contacting me about a week ago wondering "who was going to take care of their car" after my insurance company had gotten to the point of declaring fault and deemed it as their insurance takes care of them, and mine take care of me. Truthfully I wanted to say on the phone "since you don't have insurance let me call the police and see what happens then..." I didn't, but some I think I should have. *shrugs* Ah well... Hind sight is 20/20.

The damage to my vehicle was less than $1000 and things of that nature. They even did some detailing inside my vehicle... I just now have to clear out my trunk as some of the things I had in the backseat got put in the trunk for them to clean the inside of my car. So I now have my lil blue car back. I'm still thinking of getting a new car at some point, but have been putting the decision off for a while... I wasn't wanting to get strapped down with a car payment and things of that nature.

I had fun the past week, went fire spinning at one point and did some swimming at a pool party and also after gaming last Friday. It's been over 30days since my left eye was fixed so I can now swim! ^_^ It's not summer without swimming you know. Met [livejournal.com profile] shadow_stallion's mate which was cool and their house is very nice. I hope to own a nice home at some point, just now will have to decide later on where, and all those other things. Had a decent weekend as well, had a talk with someone very close and really came to a few realizations that kinda sadden me... Enough on that though...

I also found out George Carlin died... :/ He was a funny man indeed. His loss was echoed a lot by people on my friend's list. Oh and happy belated and future birthdays to people as I've been kinda out of touch with things.
Last night at gaming was full of buying "stuff" with the loot we got from the last number of gaming sessions. It was good to just hang out some with friends. :)

Oh... and for those of you needing a laugh... I present you with... THIS!

This made me laugh my @$$ off! *snickers* Hope it helps to brighten someone's day!

Car is dropped off and now have to wait for it to get fixed. I have my rental car. So far things are fine on that front. I was called with the estimate on repair cost and will have to pay the full deductible... :/ Nothing real big here to report really. Things are just the usual work/eat/sleep routine... *shrugs* Here and there feel kinda "distant" it's just hard to describe... I may expound on that later, just don't feel like it right now... It isn't like anyone can really change things.

Everything else is all good. Also didn't mention some of the other stuff I've been up to, like going to see Kung Fu Panda, with a group of local furs for the first Saturday of this month, as well as hanging with a group for the Second Sunday gathering. I hadn't been to either of these gatherings and just wanted to hang out with other furs in the area... There are quite a few I don't know and lots seem to stick to their own little groups... *shrugs* That is I guess one of the drawbacks of things, perhaps I wasn't as outward introducing myself... Eh...

So car wise looks like I'll get it back this coming Thursday. Nothing major to really report... So... I if anyone wants to know what else all is up feel free to get in contact...

I have good news and bad news from my insurance company. They called the kid and his story was he was stopped and putting his car into drive and I backed up into him and I don't think that was the case. They're calling this a "he said", "she said" kind of thing and it's where my insurance takes care of me, his takes care of him. So I'll be out a little money getting my car fixed, but I have rental coverage.

Good news: My rate is not going to go up! That is good... Just annoyed that I'm gonna be out a little money for the repair and all. *shrugs* Ah well... I go tomorrow @ 9:30am to drop off my car and get my rental.

Oh and forgot to mention about getting a new icon! :) I've used it a little, but wanted to make mention of it. Just a closeup of my eye... I wish that the "glowing" one I had made was small enough to work here, but this will have to do.

Well I got the other guy's insurance and sure enough I figured as much... It was a kid, one who just graduated from high school, and is uninsured! :/ Imagine that... At least I have uninsured motorist insurance. I'll be having my car looked at this Friday and taken care of. This is going to be a bit of a pain. :/ *grumbles* I just hope my premiums don't go up.

I'm gonna get back to trying to make some music here now that A-kon is over... I have a few things I need to get out of my system... One of which is a song dealing with rolling waves I started a while back I need to finish... Was working on a revamp of that one, making it with a better back beat, but ultimately need to get that one fully completed... Probably should have completed that one over a year ago. *shrugs* I know one other song that I am not sure on finishing it or just outright complete besides that high seas one. This is times where songs based on emotion, or on a particular subject are so hard... *sighs* Regardless, in pretty much all of my music emotion is involved. I just really need to get back into the groove. I also have one I need to work on for my friend Auric, working on that "melancholy song" I started. I need to figure out a recurring chorus line for that song. I am going to work on some music of my own and may get back to posting some ramblings of a lone wandering wolf.

So the interview was a bust, because the company is a sham, but I am gonna work on getting another job elsewhere... Will have to see what comes my way. I'm still hoping good things come my way. I'm gonna try to remain optimistic, that's just been very hard here lately...
Today I had an interview with a marketing firm here in the Dallas area. I made sure to leave with lots of extra time just in case and right as I was leaving the parking lot of my apartment complex some kid who was backing out kaddy-corner from me or pretty much directly behind me on the opposite side of the parking lot was backing up and we "car-kissed". I pretty much feel it is his fault as I know I cleared myself before backing up, but while backing up I may have been messing with the radio and should have been a bit more attentive... The kid in the other car (I use kid as a relative term as he looks a nice bit younger than me), said he didn't look and wasn't paying attention. I was in such a hurry to make sure to leave for my interview, we swapped some information like apartment numbers and I forgot to get his telephone number, but this changed my plans for the evening... I was hoping to go fire spinning, but after work I'm gonna go straight home as the other guy gets off work @ 9pm and we'll take care of things like getting his insurance information.

I started a claim through my insurance company and will be dropping my car off with some service people this Friday morning. *sighs* It was just not a great way to start the day.

I think the interview went well and it is with an entertainment and sports marketing firm. The hours look like they'll be more than 40 per week, but even if I was moving up for a management job I'd probably be looking at more than the normal 40hr. work week. I don't want to be an hourly wage slave peon for the rest of my life and don't want to do technical support for the rest of my days. Heck the interviewer was saying they were hoping to look for bright individuals and possibly within 10 months be making 6figures! O.o *jaw drops* Will have to see how this pans out as I definitely want to learn and am eager to broaden my horizons and learn new skills.

Wish me luck people! :)

To AC... Sorry folks... :/

I may have gotten a friend to help me with a room, but in looking at my work's vacation schedules I can't get Friday 6/27 off and am not really about to call in sick or whatnot to try to make this convention. I have other ideas on what to do with some of that vacation time. I know I have scheduled for MFM and MFF... I'll just have to use the other days for something else. If I'm still with the current company maybe next year I may cut a few other cons and look at other places to go and things like that.

So... Ah well... cest la vie... I at first wasn't planning on going to AC anyway so it isn't a big deal.

Hope the rest of you all have fun at the con!

Work's only been a little bit annoying today. Nothing horrible. Had a pretty good meeting with my supervisor. We talked about some relevant things like current events. It was a good meeting overall I must say. Really opened my eyes a little to some things. I also am now going to re-double my efforts into looking for another job though... I'm done taking my drops for LASIK and really feel that I deserve much better, but one of the main reasons that lots of co-workers haven't left is the pay/benefits as this job is decent in those aspects. I just hope to find something within my field that is as good if not better. My job prospects within the company here locally are kinda slim-to-none...
It so happens with my schedule getting weekends off now that I won't have to spend 4days of vacation going to AC like I would have had to before... I am thinking of going, but if I do I am giving a call out to people wondering if anyone out there can give me a place to crash. This is the most important thing that will determine if I can go or not. I most likely won't have my suit because it is being repaired by WhiteWolf.

So... Anyone willing to put a wolf up from Friday - Monday? I can easily pay my share of the room and am a quiet sleeper.

Work today was horrid right from the get go. When I first got in @ 8am, we had over 250+ in queue and it seems there was some kind of outage, but I bet most calls were being routed to our center. I couldn't believe my eyes at that... *grumbles* No use in really whining about it... I just gotta take calls one at a time and all that... Speaking on work though... I’ll be starting my new schedule this Sunday with weekends off. working 12pm - 8:30pm most days, and working 39.5hrs a week... :/ Lame, but hey at least I'm not working mandatory OT like the full time people... I like having a life thank you.

In other news… today is also my last day of taking the steroid drops for my left eye. Since I got off @ 4:30 yesterday I hung out with Storm for a while. He was nice enough to offer to pick me up at my apartment after me helping drive him home a few times. We had a few hours before our usual Friday night D&D gaming session so we went to a mall and tried going to a gaming store that I bought some dice at a number of months back and turns out the store wasn't there anymore and closed. :( Quite lame, but at least I knew the direction of the store and where it SHOULD have been. *shrugs* I guess I'll have to find another store to pick up dice and stuff.

Gaming last night was pretty fun, nothing out of the ordinary, though the fluff was getting over being sick from getting con crud from A-kon. Other stuff I've paid off the LASIK surgery and after today I can start swimming! I've also been putting together a project with my brother for another fursuit that is going to be "just for fun" with a group called the [livejournal.com profile] drinkfoxes... ;) Will have to see what comes about with this as I've been working with [livejournal.com profile] joecifur on this...

So that's kinda what's been up. I've also been kinda wondering about some friends of mine as I haven't heard from a few in quite a while... Hope things are going ok.

I also wanted to wish a happy whelp day to someone I haven't seen in forever... [livejournal.com profile] dogzrbarkn. Hope you are doing well my friend.

Oh here is a personality test thing I took... I do kinda like the result and think it does represent me well.

This con was huge… It has certainly grown the 8yrs I have been attending it. I was looking at all my badges and I am still blown away how long I've been going to this convention! I've seen many things change, like hotels, and everything else. One thing I am not so happy about changing wise has been things dealing with costumes and weapons. I also changed how I did things at the con. I usually just "attended" and I got into dressing up and cosplaying like so many there thanks to the work of my roomie and Amberlee. I started doing that about 3yrs ago actually. It's just interesting looking back… :P Ahhh good times and stuff. That aside The long and short of it all this con was pretty good. There were over 15,000 attending here in Dallas and it seems that A-kon has gone more from an anime con to many things like Dragon Con and such…
Read more... )
So there is my con report... My next update is going to be a more introspective one I do believe...
I've been quite busy this past week, with getting ready for an anime convention this past weekend that was pretty good. I'll go over that in a later post. Just got done and gonna be getting back to the grind of work before the next schedule goes into effect. I found out that work tried giving me some OT, but I got out of that as I'm part time and can't do OT. ;)

In any case, I'm alive and well and hope to talk to people more as I had been very busy with work related stuff. In short I enjoyed the convention, sans one particular thing. I hope everyone else had a good week and weekend as well.
This weekend was definitely one to remember for many reasons. I worked most of it, but Memorial Day I was able to get out and do something I've been wanting to do for a couple months now... Go to Scarborough Faire! It is a local renaissance festival that I have been going to for years and years... Actually I've been going there for more than 13yrs oddly enough... *chuckles* A long, long @$$ time...

The Sunday before I had my brother come over and boy did he arrive late... I got annoyed with him, but cest la vie... Another friend Cebelius was in town came with us along with my roomie Charger. We met up at Amberlee's place and met up with [livejournal.com profile] shadow_stallion, had some breakfast, got changed into costume and left. I changed into the costume that was just finished for me in time for the faire... It's too bad the weather was so hot, but I wore the costume I was only missing two things that weren't able to be hand made... I am missing the boots and sword I need to complete my Tristan costume from the movie Stardust. Even if I had the two articles the only other unfortunately thing is that I don't have long hair so I can't make the look exactly "complete"... :/ Durn job interviews and trying to find another job... I could have my hair long... But then it would hinder my chances of getting a job.... I do plan on growing it out again as I do prefer long hair.

We weren't able to make opening ceremonies like I was originally hoping because I accidentally forgot some eye drops that I definitely needed since the last surgery on May 7th. I'm still having to take the Pred Forte (a steroid drop). My vision though has been getting steadily better in my left eye as it has been healing. I have been following the doctor's orders there. So after stopping off at work then made good time and got to the faire. Got some comp tickets from my older brother who's been working at the fair for many MANY years and has been part of the Corsairs (a singing pirate act). Made it to their first showing and got to talk to some friends I've known at faire and was directed to one new act by someone called Dr. Kaboom. We walked all around and a lot of my friends loved my outfit even though it wasn't exactly "period", it was great and Celyddon dressed as Yvaine from the movie. She really outdid herself with the costumes I must say. We did some eating, and drank lots of water. We saw quite a few shows... We also caught my parents there as well.

Oh and I highly recommend if you go to a Renaissance Festival and Dr. Kaboom is there... He is a must see... He has coined a catch phrase that will stick with me and my friends...

"SCIENCE IS COMING!!!"

We couldn't stop laughing and it may become an inside joke... We all will also remember to "practice SAFE science" as well... ;)

Unfortunately Storm and Amberlee left early around 2pmish and right before then one girl validated my costume and knew where it came from! ^_^ Other people thought it was a nice costume like Miguel from another of the acts at Scarborough and a former Corsair who was there for the absolute last show because this year unfortunately was the last year for the Corsairs as they are disbanding from here. Unfortunately with at least one member finding a job in Virginia and other things they couldn't keep together still. So after 13yrs. So I made sure to be there for their final show. It was a spectacular send off and the act following the Corsairs let them have as much time as they needed to say goodbyes and things like that. It was through them and my brother I knew so many people at Scarborough. I plan on having some pictures posted of me in costume...

So we left after that last show and some shopping. We then came home and watched the first Back to the Future movie before Cebelius left. Today I got a haircut to shorten the bangs and trim up the back for my Leon costume and gonna get a white wig styled for Chaos from Xenosaga III. I also have been practicing my music as I'm part of a musical panel for Project A-kon. I'm very excited and can't wait! :)

I have my schedule for next week. I work through Sunday and then am off the entire next week! ^_^ Monday is a holiday here and I'll finally be able to go to Scarborough Faire! I haven't been able to go this entire season unlike some friends of mine who go almost every weekend. I'll be sporting a new costume, just will be missing a couple pieces to make the look "perfect". Then after that will be continuing practicing music till this weekend for the anime convention I mentioned earlier and posted a pic of one of the costumes I'll be going there in.

I just got my new schedule that starts the second week of June (June 8th) and goes through August (that is unless I find another job in the meantime). I'm going to re-double my efforts into trying to find another job inside or outside my current place of work.

  • Sunday: OFF

  • Monday: 12:00pm - 8:30pm

  • Tuesday: 12:00pm - 8:30pm

  • Wednesday: 12:00pm - 8:30pm

  • Thursday: 12:00pm - 8:30pm

  • Friday: 12:00pm - 8:00pm

  • Saturday: OFF
I'm happy about the weekends off, I just do not like working 39.5 hours per week and I'm supposed to be part time. Granted I switched to part time for going back to school, but since I graduated the scheduling people have really just started "raping" the crap out of the part time people. I have stayed part time as working 32+ hours a week has been more than enough for me and I have still gotten benefits. I don't like working this many hours, but in truth it is just about full time and a good thing is that they can't work me mandatory overtime (they tried today but I got that fixed). They just have me working the max I can before I'm considered "full time". I'd prefer a 10am shift, but this is what I got and it's the best of the 3 part time shifts they had available. I at least get weekends off which I haven't had in forever... I'm gonna also have to change my workout schedule and work out later on Monday/Wednesday/Friday, or possibly workout before heading to work...

So hope to see whoever at A-Kon if you go to anime conventions and hope everyone at RMFC, and RCFM are having a blast!

I just got my tax return and the incentive check. It seems I got the tax return before the incentive. I meant to do direct deposit, but it is always nice receiving paper from the government saying we owe you money and things like that. I already knew ahead of time what most of my tax refund was gonna pay for (LASIK) and it covered more than half the procedure, but the incentive check I am gonna use that to get me some renaissance boots and some other sundries.

I'm still waiting for a sword to be shipped to me and I plan on contacting Strongblade to find out where it is, as I was hoping it would get to me before Memorial Day coming up.

Am a little concerned after gaming last night... I am hoping things are ok, but will have to see what's up after I get off work. Other than that I've been practicing music for the con as I'd put that off after getting LASIK, but with my eyes now feeling better things are going to be fine for that I do believe.

I am going to post a couple other pics with my Leon S. Kennedy costume and am so glad that it was so well received. I even asked a friend who is an actor (I so would love to be one btw...) his opinion and he said it looked very close and he just recently finished THAT game a couple weeks ago! ^_^ I know there are a couple little further fine tuning tweaks that could be done to fully get it proper. Maybe next year I'll tweak the outfit and go as another version of the same character, but another outfit like others have done. I wanted to do the bomber jacket look, but couldn't find one at a decent price. So I have a total of 4 costumes I could wear to A-kon this year, but more than likely will only be wearing two, possibly 3.

Not sure what I'll be up to after work. I don't know if there is a movie meet, but more than likely I'll be going home and practicing music for at least an hour or so if there isn't anything else going on. This is just the latest on what has been up with me.

I'll cut you with a knife!!!!

It'll cut you wide open! *snickers* Don't believe me? I have proof!!! Take a look and tell me what you think... I am doing this for a local anime convention at the end of May / beginning of June called Project A-Kon.
Do you think I'm a good match for the character? Going for Leon S. Kennedy from the 4th Resident Evil Game. Please be honest. Truthfully I am quite happy with how it looks.
That much is very true… Since my last post I did say I was thinking of taking a hiatus and I did from posting, but I did read lj and tried keeping abreast of things that were going on to the best of my ability. I tried replying to some people’s posts even while I wasn’t updating on my own life. I am kinda saddened that it seems not many people really noticed… *shrugs* Truthfully… I was expecting as much… I may take another “break”/hiatus, but the next time I do it will probably be for a more extended period… It was to sort of see who would really notice or really go out of their way to see what has been up with me and my life… Or really cared about things and things of that nature... As I really just keep this journal up for people that I don't keep in regular touch with so people know how things have been in my life.Read more... )

So that is a rough summary of what I’ve been up to… Oh yea and the day after PRK I also saw Iron Man! Go see the movie it is awesome. Now I can’t wait for the Prince Caspian movie… Now onto more practicing music and I also wanted to mention I got an interview coming up on Tuesday after my eye appointment and a dental appointment this coming Wednesday... No rest for the weary... :/

Also wanted to say... Happy Mother's Day! :) I know I certainly appreciate my mother for many things, including bringing me and my brothers into this world.
I got the poi I ordered from Home of Poi yesterday! ^_^ I ordered a pair of "cone" poi that have some quick links along with a special that was going on with a pair of fire poi that also came with some blue LED balls that I am gonna use in my white socks as the current blue LED poi balls that I have one of them is having technical problems with a contact that I'm not sure how to fix.

I'm working on moves like flowers and trying to get some behind the back moves. I still have much envy of friends like [livejournal.com profile] celyddon, [livejournal.com profile] uckticoonox, and [livejournal.com profile] tealstorn. I want to get better as well as some of the other people I saw at FC like some who were doing that workshop that I attended. I plan on working more on poi as well as getting off my duff and working on music for A-Kon... I will admit some to being a little lazy, but have been busy with other stuff that IMOP is more important like looking for job and a few other personal things.

We had some very bad storming Wednesday night and lots of people were without power yesterday and still some today. I do hope to actually "break in" my new fire poi here soon... Perhaps within the next few days, or maybe next Wednesday at that club.

I think the interview yesterday went ok, hope to hear back from 6M, though I also found that in the same set of suites there is another marketing firm called Bullet Marketing and I may applying there. I also had my brother over and we had a good time playing some RockBand and Brawl. We talked over a few things as well on some of the current happenings. Depending on some things though I may as I stated before take a bit of a hiatus from LJ and things of that nature... Got a number of things I should really be worrying about more, though if people want to keep in touch I'm always here for them. :)

Oh and I wanted to also wish an awesome fox by the name of [livejournal.com profile] aerofox! I hope you have lots of fun and enjoy yourself! *hugs*

Not sure on some things, but here is at least one more public post before I put things "friends only" and possibly take a hiatus for a while...

I'm gonna be part of the Fursuit Tournament this year... Starting today or this afternoon they will be putting up the vote. A friend of mine [livejournal.com profile] darkentiger entered me into this thing and I was actually quite flattered by it. I hope to do well, but then again I wasn't sure if I should remove myself from this tournament like another friend of mine did... I decided "what the heck" and see what happens. I am not gonna let this tournament though soil my feelings as if I don't do well... It doesn't really matter... I know who I am, and who my friends are. Those kinds of things won't change at all.

In any case I have an interview later today and will see what this 6m corporation has in the way of marketing positions. I also mailed back some pants I got in from ebay that didn't fit, took my roomie to to a toyota dealership, and deposited some money into an IRA of mine for the 2007 tax year. I didn't deposit a LOT because I will be getting LASIK right soon here... I was gonna see if I could get it on Monday 4/21, but not able to... Ah well... I also recently as of Tuesday had a good long talk with someone very dear to me. I rearranged the errands I was going to run that day, so as not to be busy, because that person is important to me. All in all had a good talk over many things... Still wishing things were "better", aired a number of things, got a number of things off my chest... I think we came to few new understandings on things, but will have to see what happens.

Last night had [livejournal.com profile] celyddon over and did have at least one good trial spinning with fire, though the weather was against us. I'm still trying to learn new moves and will focus on that and some with some music. I recently picked up a duffel bag and lots of stuff necessary for spinning fire, including: water bottle - to spray hair, a blanket/towel, fuel, a can to soak the poi with fuel, and a funnel for getting fuel back into the can that is unused. I may invest in other things, but currently waiting for my new poi to arrive. I think I also need to get with flowtoys to get some new lights from them and see about selling some of my glow stuff.

I know I haven't been online much and want to say to everyone I've been busy... Just dealing with a lot of things. Some may already know what with, but a lot of things have been actually trying to find a job and I have one interview with a corporation 6M that I put in a resume with so wish me luck there. :)
Or... MUZZLE BONKAH, I should say... *snickers*

I was just pointed to this video yesterday that was posted and had to show it to the rest of you... I'll post a second video showing where I got my idea for the title of this post. Here is a video that isn't like the kind of cute you get from seeing puppies and kittens, but is cute none-the-less.
It's hard to see what I'm doing while in suit and moves like that and the butterfly I have to just go by feel as I can't see in the middle where my muzzle is. It's still cute the sound effects and editing that went into this video! ;)

Oh and here is another classic video from long ago. I consider it a classic in my opinion.
I wanted to wish a happy birthday to a silly raccoon by the name of [livejournal.com profile] nightflurry who turned 22 today! Gaaah... I feel so old sometimes...

Work was just the usual dullness, but I'm looking forward to this coming Wednesday... I hope to get my new fire poi in because I want to go fire spinning again. Lately I find myself doing a lot of things, mostly to keep my mind off things. At least one cool thing is from the party I was at here recently I met a few new people, one of which who is into contact juggling actually called me up and wanted to hang after work. He said there were fellow people who were spinning at White Rock lake... So I got off work @ 6pm and tried hurrying my butt there, but unfortunately by the time I got there the people spinning poi were gone, just the drum circle... So listened to the drums for a bit, and then decided to go catch some food with him and his girlfriend (who I was teaching poi tricks to at the party). We ate at a nice Indian restaurant and then I was homeward bound. They both seem cool and hope to hang out with them more... and other people in my other non-fur circles of friends.

I talked with my mother and found the date of my brother's graduation... Unfortunately some she was quite stressed out with a few things in trying to plan on the whole graduation thing as it is a nice drive away to get to the college where the ceremonies will be held. I think she's over-stressing, but then again perhaps some that is where I get some of my tendencies... I know I have a tendency to over stress and things like that too.

In any case it's late... I'm gonna catch me some shut eye... I don't know if I'll be online much here the next few days/weeks... I've kinda been a bit lack-luster... I'm also thinking of taking a bit of a hiatus from lj as well... I mostly only keep it up to date for those that I don't keep in touch with on a regular basis... *shrugs* I may check online here and there for some online auctions for costume pieces, but I do have things I should get on like practicing music for the upcoming anime convention as well as scheduling my LASIK surgery... I think I'm gonna get that for April 22nd, so my dad can take me to and from the clinic and my mom was wanting to "pamper" me again like when after I had my wisdom teeth removed. I won't object... *chuckles*

So... last night I went out with my brother to a club a few of my friends invited me to come to after last Saturday's party. It seems Wednesday nights are when in back they break out a drum circle and want people of all kinds to spin fire. We got there around 9:40 after picking up some food. It was an absolutely wonderful experience I must say and I plan on definitely going there more often. It has definitely given me a lot of inspiration to get even better spinning wise... Met someone who was quite a sight who spun fire and did fire breathing. He was also QUITE full of himself, and some the guy had right to be... He was thin, tall, and had a decent build... He was wearing a set of leather, full arm sleeves held by a ring in the middle... Quite flashy I must say... He even laid his fire staff on the leather for a bit for a bit of show... So as I said, he was very confident... There was also a lady who was getting over being sick, but wanted to be there to spin fire and she was quite a sight indeed. I still have to say Amberlee was the best poi spinner there that we saw... Some of our group left early and the lady and fire staff spinner let us use their can and oil lamp to fuel and light up. We didn't stay that late and other people who do fire or glowsticks came right as we were leaving around 11pm. I still semi wish I had stayed later, or gone back, but after getting home I didn't feel like driving back out there again.

So... Here is a video to go along with the pictures taken last Saturday!

I know it's sideways but I uploaded this raw from my camera. Anyone know of a good program on a mac to edit and fix this I would love to know what I need to do. I just wanted to upload it to get it out there for you all to see!
Oh... I wanted to wish both [livejournal.com profile] shadowtxhorse and an awesome Aussie tiger friend of mine [livejournal.com profile] darkentiger a wonderful day. I hope that there are no tricks, but you both have lots of fun my good friends. *hugs to the both of you*

I just wanted to say that I hope everyone has fun today and don't pull off too many tricks on people... You know what happened to the boy who cried "wolf"! :P

I also sent off for some fire poi, some leathers to wear while fire spinning, and measurements for turning my fursuit into a partial so I can wear raver pants and stuff while in suit. ;) One word... POCKETS... well lemme make that even more 'geeky'... POCKETS OF HOLDING! ;) I am still thinking of LASIK as it would be great to wear my fursuit and not have to worry about glasses and stuff. :>
