I was just sent these pics from Tommy via a link. He said he'd be taking down the pics so I made sure to dload all of them, including the ones with my friend who was spinning the fire staff.

Check out all the fun I had with fire!!!

I hope you all enjoy! ^_^ I do plan on spinning more fire soon!
And not get singed... That is something that I did last night actually. I will get to that part in a bit though... Work was just a normal day, and after it I went to a party held by a cool friend of mine that I used to game with and have hung out with on occassion, but normally only at the parties he's held. I'd love to try to hang out with him more often, as well as other friends. I hope we do keep in better touch. The party was a blast... I brought some nice vodka and others brought other alcoholic beverages of all sorts. There was much food and merriment. The party was kinda in celebration to an engagement that in everyone's opinion took far too long for him to propose to this lovely woman who he's been seeing for about 3yrs. now. So it was definitely "about time"! :P *chuckles* We even celebrated "Earth Hour" by dimming the lights for a bit too... Even google yesterday was black instead of it's normal white! :P

I found out that he still does that "Blues Dancing" and I truthfully need to find out where some of that is around here locally to just hang out and whatnot... They talked about some meet in Austin, but I don't think I'd go down there for dancing... I'd have to plan for other things, and there's a good fox friend among a few others I know in the Austin area and I have been meaning to visit at some point, but haven't yet... I'd rather visit for friends and not dancing, and I will at some point.

I met a lot of new people at the party, and one guy I met had his girlfriend who was just learning to spin poi and they brought some toys and because they brought toys another friend of mine rushed home and came back bringing his fire toys. Before the fire began I was helping teach her some... Perhaps our paths will cross again, but I can refer her to a much better teacher than I as I want to learn more moves from her... *chuckles*

Now onto the burning part! :P The part that you all have been waiting for... My friend brought a fire staff and fire poi, and after a bit of talking over things and making sure about safety I decided "why the hell not", along with the girl, who I was teaching, and her boy friend thought that I was "good enough" to spin fire... So I did... and it was my "First Burn"! @_@ I was definitely a little antsy and unsure of myself... I followed my friend's instructions on getting them soaked with fuel and then spinning off the excess. My friend started his fire up first and used his staff to light the fire poi. I stayed with some real basic moves and didn't even touch doing any behind the head moves or really anything over my head. I do have to say this... It was VERY fun! I can definitely see the draw to spinning fire. I was a little 'afraid' of the accidentally lighting myself on fire, but after actually spinning it I see the draw to those who do it. The sound of the fire spinning, the smell, and everything else... I think I will get myself some custom fire poi and begin spinning fire myself after this experience. That way I can do more tricks and be more confident while spinning fire... So now I can say... Yes... I have graduated to fire! ^_^

Pictures will be coming soon as there were pictures taken! :)

Speaking of fire... I hope that the birthday candles did not destroy the cake [livejournal.com profile] pacerfox! :P *snickers* Bad joke, I know... I am wishing you a happy birthday and do hope we can hang out at some point outside of a con. :)

Yesterday was just a normal day... I went and had my eye appt... I am still highly contemplating getting LASIK as I've been thinking about having it done for years, but our family eye doctor I've been seeing for the longest time before moving out and getting my own vision insurance said to wait until after 25 and have been told by my current eye doctor that my prescription hasn't really changed much at all. It bodes well... I'm thinking of having it done if I can relatively soon... I'm just gonna have to work out with friends or family on taking me to the place when the surgery is gonna take place and thing like that.

I think I'd get it on a Tuesday so that way I'd have Wednesday and Thursday to recover following the surgery. From what I've read the corneal cap heals quite fast, and reading over the literature... The only thing I'd have issues with is the constant drops for the first few days after surgery. :/ *grumbles* I hate drops in my eyes, but I'd just have to grin and bear with it.

I'm still conteplating making this journal completely friends only. I've had others who have urged me to do that... I am still wanting those who I haven't friended back yet who I possibly don't know to say something to me so I can decide on adding you or not.

To a feline with the voice of a nightingale... [livejournal.com profile] merryjest! :) I hope you enjoy yourself today and hope to talk with you soon. :)

I also had an appointment today with the eye doctor, was also making sure to ask about contacts and the possibility of LASIK as my family eye doctor for years said to wait till after I was 25 to get the procedure. I went Tuesday to one that has been highly advertised the Boothe Laser Center, and did not like their "high pressure" sales tactic to try to get me to try to have my surgery done this week. I was only wanting information and had not made any plans on getting surgery done... The Boothe center said if I wanted to have their lowest price I had to do it this week, as next week it'd be higher... So I was like "NO thank you", and and looked at my options elsewhere and this other center looks like if I go for LASIK they will get my business. So... after all their eye exams and stuff... I have a lot more understanding of the procedure, though currently my eyes got dilated and today was really bright so I'm staying inside for a bit. At least I have games and other stuff to amuse myself with in the dim light and darkness... :P
I wanted to wish a happy birthday to a cool blue husky named Banshee, and also to the dancing wuff Vincent([livejournal.com profile] draco751). I hope you have fun... Think... One more year and your car insurance will go down drastically! :P *snugs*
I wanted to wish a happy birthday to my friend [livejournal.com profile] atmanryu! Hope things are going well for you. Have missed talking and hope to keep in better touch. You have been missed my scaley friend.

In other news... My little brother is in town! He and his wife both are in the army and are in on leave. I had lunch with them and some other family on Tuesday and enjoyed time afterwards with my grandmother and great aunt before hanging with the usual Tuesday crowd.

I also had my younger brother over to my apartment. Haven't had him over in forever. Had him over Wednesday night, he and his wife. We watched the newest Studio Ghibli film that I had recently received in the mail, along with a few other anime titles/series.

I also had a very nice dinner Thursday night with my immediate family, excluding my older brother and his wife. So it was me, my little brother, his wife, my twin, and my parents. We ate at a very authentic Spanish restaurant called Cafe Madrid. We had a wonderful evening and enjoyed good food before my younger and his wife had to leave... They are both in the army, have been married for over a year now. I semi envy my older brother and younger brother in some respect... I worked yesterday and went gaming and we tried out the new 4th edition things that have been put out on the internet for people to try. It was pretty fun actually.

Today I've just been working and it truthfully hasn't been too horrible today call volume wise. I was talking with my mother on the phone during a break. I won't be able to join my family for Easter, because I work... I wish I could be there with them, but can't unfortunately. The only real big thing that did get on my nerves though, was my mother started laying into me on finding a someone... *sighs* More specifically, a lady to settle down with... I just really wish sometimes that particular topic/subject wouldn't be brought up... Granted it's been a while since her last bit of "hinting" (more like hitting me with a shovel)... I've been with guys and girls... I'm bi... I'm just, still kinda right now unsure on the whole 'relationship' thing in general... *lowers his head*

Not gonna go any further there...

I want to wish everyone a Happy Easter early! Be mindful that after today though that the easter bunny hates you! :P *snickers*
Perform this lovely piece. It is different from other things I have made... The reason being is in the description on FA, as I made this with more "major chords", and not in a minor key like most of my songs have been. I'm quite pleased with it, and the other song I posted yesterday.

Please let me know what you all think on both songs as I would love the feedback... I'm slowly getting better playing wise, and getting to know and understand how to record with my mac and garage band. Perhaps I'll find another music instrument pack to add to this... Who knows... I hope to get lots better in music making as well... Hopefully maybe... getting somewhat close to Foxamoore's level on FA...

I envy many other people's skills like for spinning poi... and in music creation... It helps me with wanting to improve myself and reach for higher heights... So here's to continuing to work and get better, and I have also printed a lot of music for the AME stuff I'm gonna be working on for Project A-kon... I'm gonna have to check and see if I can hit some of the VERY low notes that were on the cello parts... it's been months since I've practiced...

Also, yesterday had a nice lunch with family as my little brother was in town, along with his wife, and then hung out with the usual Tuesday group. I may hang out with my brother late, not sure...

To my very good friend [livejournal.com profile] teirandragon! :P Hope work doesn't treat you bad. I'm listening to the sound of rain outside my window which is very pleasant. I'm gonna be recording some music and do have at least one idea rolling around in my head... I may pull out another 5minute rambling of stuff as well. I have the next two days off after this so I'm gonna enjoy myself... Take it easy and also get some cleaning done too.

I enjoyed my own 'lil' St. Patrick's at home last night, did have a friend over, watched a movie, and I had me a green mixed drink, along with some rum, and I'll need to nip into the Bailey's mint chocolate that I picked up too. I didn't get drunk or buzzed like I know a lot of people do, but did enjoy myself. I hope everyone else had fun too!

Oh and new music for you all to hear and lemme know what you think... I know circa 21seconds I made a boo-boo, but I kept on with the recording. :P
And Lassies too!!!

I celebrated yesterday a wee bit early by eating out at Bennigan's and had their St. Patrick's special which was corned beef & cabbage. I know Catholics celebrated on Saturday... I didn't have anything to drink though over the weekend. I think I'm gonna change that a little bit today and pick up some stuff on the way home and celebrate at home. I know there are going to be parties and all, but I'd rather not be out and about in the drunken revelry that is going to be going on tonight.

I'm part Irish/Scottish and did wear a green shirt today. I will pick up my liquer on the way home... I will also go to the gym, and then have a nice relaxing evening at home...

I wish all of you a happy, and safe St. Patrick's Day!

Oh and Happy Birthday as well to [livejournal.com profile] nerfcoyote! :) It is interesting when a birthday falls on another holiday... Becomes double the celebration right? :P

Happy birthday to... [livejournal.com profile] bravo and [livejournal.com profile] sephebonblade! :) Hope you to have tons of "big" fun and all this day! Well... perhaps one of you will have big fun, but I hope you both enjoy yourselves!

Oh and belated birthday wishes to my equine friend [livejournal.com profile] rozberk!

Oh and happy pre-St. Patrick's... During my lunch break I went to Bennigan's and had their special with corned beef and cabbage. I work till 6pm today, but 7pm tomorrow... I just found out that my little brother is in town and will have to try to hang out with him on my days off this week.
I'm not sure if I'm gonna continue with updating my journal as often as I try to... It isn't like everyone really needs to know things in my life on a daily basis... I have just usually been keeping this journal around and up-to-date to let people know how I've been, especially those I can't keep in touch with on a regular basis. I try to be frank here, honest and open... Granted I don't talk about "every" aspect of my life and such... There is quite a lot I don't post here... I also try not to defame anyone or cause drama... I'm just I dunno... here and there lately been a little *shrugs* I dunno the word for it... Feeling like not really having the book of my life be so "open" as it were...

I've got nothing to hide or anything like that. Things truthfully have been just fine. I'm definitely thinking of making this journal "friends only" and things like that... I know I also need to do better on reading fully on people's journals and probably commenting, but I've been bad on that part here lately...

So... a lot of you that may have me friended and I haven't friended you back, some I think I might not remember who you are if we met like at a con or something, and if you added me from other places like pounced, or whatnot... If you would please let me know who you are, not necessarily why you're watching me so I can decide on adding you back if I do make this journal friends only.
They finally did put out new schedules for people, even the part timers... and guess what? They upped the number of hours the part timers are working to 39... When I first went part time it was around 25 - 30, then went to around 32 and stayed that way for a few months, then went to 36 after December. I wonder if we can get together as part timers and possibly say... "hey I can only be available at these times" and have them work around OUR availability. I've been flexible for this company for how long and they only seem to just take take take... never help the employees at all. Well the one good thing in all of this is that on the new schedule is I got 3 days off again. I also will have 1hr. lunches, and won't have a little 4hr day. I guess they realized how stupid it was to do that. I mean at least one thing I'll be making more money... as I'll just "about" be full time.

So here is next week's schedule

  • Sunday: 8:00am - 6:00pm

  • Monday: 8:00am - 7:00pm

  • Tuesday: OFF

  • Wednesday: OFF

  • Thursday: OFF

  • Friday: 8:00am - 7:00pm

  • Saturday: 8:00am - 7:00pm
So there's good and bad with this. I'm still gonna look for another job. I chose this schedule as it was one of the few that had 3days off. It means I may be able to make little "mini"-vacations... I might actually try to visit friends here and there.
I'm definitely feeling better. Just about at 100% I'd say. I guess the antibiotics I was prescribed are doing their job. I mean Tuesday after taking the meds I was able to get my left ear to "pop" as it were and don't feel any fluid there. I haven't had a sore throat. I mean today when I got up I took some Germ MD and Mucinex, possibly only some last remnants of drainage... no sore throat. I bet I'm good, but gonna take the antibiotics the full run of it as per the directions and "doctor's orders".

Yesterday I really didn't do much of anything except try and get better. I played games, chatted online to friends, and talked with people on the phone too. I did have my brother over after he got off work. Had him over to brawl some, as he hadn't played the game yet. I did play with a few friends of mine online. I think one of 'em had a problem with his router and things lagged, though even in another fight things weren't "as" lagged, but I am thinking that Nintendo may need to put forth some more infrastructure for their online play capability, especially if they put other games with online play. I hope it all remains free, but I can easily see them charging to play online... We'll have to see what happens.

Today after work I get off work @ 12pm I'm gonna get an oil change on my car as it's about 200 miles before I need to. I'm also gonna have them do an inspection at the Kwik Kar that I usually go to as I do believe it is just about expired. I'm also gonna do a bit of shopping and pick up some sundries, as I didn't do my laundry yesterday I'll get a quarter roll, and do some cleaning up around the apartment. I know I have been quite lax, and need to really get "off my duff".

After work on Monday I went to Prima Care near where I live to have the doctor give me a once-over. Seems even though I didn't feel I had a fever it was around 99 something, he saw some inflammation in my throat, and what I mentioned about my left ear. He prescribed some antibiotics which I've been diligently taking for the past two days, as well as I've still been taking Germ MD, drinking echinacea tea, and Mucinex.

I got home, after stopping off at CVS to pick up my drugZ ;P, and picked up a few other sundries... Made myself some tea and got quite a surprise when coming back to my living room at one point to find a certain fox named Lhexa sitting on my couch! I hadn't heard him come in, knock, or anything... It was quite a pleasant surprise I'll say that much... I think he got in as Guardian gave him a key a little while back. It was awesome having him here in the apartment once again. We talked a nice bit, I had some ramen, and took the antibiotics I was prescribed (as it says to take with food), and we talked a nice bit before my roommates got home. He spent the night as well.

Yesterday was a pretty good day, truth be told. Woke up, had some cereal, talked some with Lhexa and said goodbye to Guardian as he left for work. Had a nice talk via AIM with Damien actually, which was nice. Played some SSB:B (Super Smash Brothers: Brawl), some alone, and some battling against Lhexa, and did some of the single player cooperatively which was fun. Lhexa hadn't eaten, and before he arrived I had made plans with Amberlee to join her for a late lunch/dinner... So... I surprised her with bringing the fox along! :P So I was continuing to surprise people with bringing him along, even to the regular Tuesday meet. On our way out there I almost forgot my medication so we had to travel back to the apartment and ended up being a little later than I previously anticipated getting to the Italian restaurant. We had a good bit of conversing and generally fun conversations and realizations... Then after eating (and me medicating), we went to the usual Tuesday meet, albeit a bit early, but it was good to get there early and had a good time talking with Teiran & Fuzz (when he arrived home) before anyone else got there. Others started arriving, starting with Diddy (who I teased a bit by opening the door, hiding behind it so he couldn't see who opened the door), and then others started arriving like Damien, Sairo, Zapnut, Rei, Dylan, and unfortunately Savrin ended up being late due to his car having troubles, but he made it and all was good. We had fun playing some SSB:B and conversing... I think we played the game a little 'too' much as I would've preferred a bit more general talking, but everyone else seemed to have fun.

Then I took Lhexa home and crashed soon after, but not before having some tea. The only 'bad' thing that really wasn't so bad all throughout the day was that people were making me laugh up a storm, causing me to almost hack up a lung! :P *snickers* Not so much a bad thing at all as it did help me get my throat, lungs, and other passages free from mucus. :P I just had to also have a cough drop in the evening to help soothe my throat after so much hacking. :P

Today... I don't have anything planned at all. I think I'll get a $10 quarter roll for doing laundry and get that done... I know Lhexa will be going out and about and I do hope to have my brother over to enjoy battling him in brawl... I also need to get online and battle lots of my friends too! :P

I started off at first trying to make music for my friend Auric, but then a bug bit me and I had to pump this out of my system... A piece of music from Megaman X4. I hope you all enjoy. Please let me know what you all think. I know some it is a little over-synthed... but considering the song I think it works ok. I know I made some little "slips", but this was the best recording out of all my playing and I decided to post it even with the little mess ups. Like with my ramblings as long as I can make a "mistake" sound ok in my books it can be overlooked.

Be sure to lemme know what you all think, either here or comment in my FA! Any criticism is welcome!
That's how I've felt the past couple of days actually. Only slightly, nothing major like high fever or anything that I guess would keep me from work. I woke up yesterday feeling like there was some 'fluid' or something in my ear that I couldn't get out no matter how I moved my jaw or anything... I hadn't showered yet, or did I the previous night... Well I would have felt water in my ear after a shower... Which I felt was quite odd. I started right off the bat nursing this with Germ MD, and Echinacea Wellness Tea, but starting this morning with a bit of a sore throat I bought some cough drops like Hall's and Luden's... So the throat isn't in pain. The ear still feels "off" and I don't have a fever...

I'm gonna go to Prima Care on Main St. and see what can be done so I can kick this before anything bad really happens. I feel I already have a good start on this, but with the ear still feeling "off" as I said... it just is an annoyance that I'd rather have looked at, especially to make sure it's nothing serious.

Oh yea and Smash Brothers Brawl is very cool... I'm working on the single player and gonna add a few more of my friends codes that I was given so I can begin playing people online. ^_^ This is gonna be so much fun!
Here is my information that people may want if you would like to add me as a wii friend and play smash bro's.

All comments will be screened so that only I can see.

Eep... forgot the screener at first... Sorry! :>
I wanted to wish my friends [livejournal.com profile] celyddon and [livejournal.com profile] dark_natasha a very happy birthday! I hope that today is fun for the both of you. I wish I could be there for the lunch thing with Amberlee, but ah well, cest la vie... I'm stuck at work. I can't wait to get off work and will be picking up my copy of Super Smash Brothers Brawl from my local gamestop.

Wow... this weekend was very VERY jam packed... I've hardly even been online when I'm at home. I've just been posting things here while at work during some downtimes/breaks. Sorry to people that I mostly talk to online, as I've been busy with company and things like that. At least right now I have a little down time to relax a bit... And deal with other things...

After work yesterday had a decent dinner with [livejournal.com profile] teirandragon and had a good chat over a few things. Rather saddened hear a few things he had to say and truthfully rather disappointed in other people. There are some ups though... It's good to know that things shouldn't really be finger pointing,(unfortunately some people are) because some people can't see themselves as being problems, or part of a larger problem. I'm not perfect myself and always working on that. Like everyone else should try to be better in many aspects. Friends should really act like they are instead of how things have been. *shrugs* Enough on that though.

Spent last night while Beo was still in town. We watched Stargate, and then played some Rock Band. We even got Guardian ([livejournal.com profile] guardlion) to sing for a little and he enjoyed it! ^_^ Said my goodbyes and such. I then went to bed and set my clock an hour forward... I didn't get as much sleep as I would've liked, but ah well... Work today has been busy, but just a normal Sunday all truth be told, nothing special. I wish I could be at Amberlee's birthday lunch thing, but will have something later on. I'm wishing Beo a safe trip home and hope to see him back down here soon. :)
I want to wish [livejournal.com profile] tigeronstarfire a belated birthday as I wasn't paying attention to things and this weekend has been quite busy and hectic with two people coming in from out of town.

I also wanted to wish [livejournal.com profile] beowulf_kennedy a happy birthday today as well and will be hanging with him and my brother after work. It is so sad they will be leaving Sunday morning so early, but has been great having him.

Yesterday was a regular day at work, nothing special... After work I picked up my friend Teser from his job (as his car is in the shop) and dropped him off at [livejournal.com profile] savrin's place and went from there to The Cheesecake Factory in South Lake. We went there as a pre-emptive birthday dinner for Beo. It took a bit to find and I definitely got a bit frustrated when I tried calling my brother as I was running a bit late after dropping off Teser.

Dinner was great... I had a drink called a flying gorilla which was quite tasty. I had a turkey ruben, my brother had a huge salad, and Beo had some seafood/chicken pasta. After dinner we all had a bit of desert as one can't go to the cheesecake factory without having some desert. The desert happened to be breakfast this morning.

Last night though after dinner I went out to do some D&D gaming with my group of friends. For the most part last night the gaming session was fun, but it seemed near the end of the night that people started being f'tards. I just really hate how some people can't really seem to work as a team or work with others... I prefer to really "get into character" and have fun. Others don't seem to really understand how to properly role play it seems. During a session people may have a disagreement on what to do and some friendly BS'ing and all is well and good, but IMOP how downright rude a few were being last night definitely made me think about reconsidering gaming with this particular group of people due to people being very childish IMOP. I'm not going to go into details but am definitely not happy, and it wasn't with the GM. I'm gonna see how next session goes and make my final decision then... *growls* I've got much better things to do with my time and things I could be doing and hanging with other good friends, but I enjoy gaming and things of that nature, and easily can find another group or other things to occupy my time with.

Other than that... Just dealing with an annoying day at work with just non-stop calls in que and stuff. I can't wait to get off work and get home today to hang out with Beo before he leaves.
Yesterday was quite an eventful day indeed. Just a couple days ago I was told by my brother that his friend Beowulf would be in town and arriving on Thursday. I was definitely overjoyed at this as he is a very good friend of mine and so cool he was going to be in town, just the only snag was that this same weekend I also had my friend [livejournal.com profile] cassen_grrrl coming in on her way to Mexico. The other big thing that happened was that here in Texas we had a very freak snow storm come through on a severe winter weather warning. I got to work just fine at 8am, and it was my short day so I worked till 12pm. I found out that Beo already got into town and had breakfast with my brother so I let him know when I got off and he was surprised I got off early so we made plans to meet at a Jason’s Deli near my apartment.

The weather was very trying to say the least. Around 12pm it was more wet rain than anything else, but while we were eating that rain turned to snow. I ate lunch with Beo and his friend Cebelius who drove him in. Those guys were driving for over 30hrs, coming down from Maryland. Cebelius has actually lived in Texas and had some other reasons for coming as he may be looking into trying to start up classes, Beo, wanted to visit my brother, and me as well for his birthday which is tomorrow. So yea this weekend definitely got jam packed in short order.

After lunch we stopped off at my apartment. I took Beo there as Ceb wanted to stop off at some of his stomping grounds and talk to some of his friends. He joined us an hour later. While at the apartment I showed Beo a number of things, and we exchanged interesting stories and then Ceb joined us, and instead of going to dinner with us he had made other plans which was fine as well. We watched other videos and I was totally surprised by his reaction at one point to something I wanted to show him, but hey… I guess some people are just a little “scared” of things… It took me a bit to get him to actually watch it as he at first thought I said something odd. *shrugs* He liked the vid and stuff and showed me a number of vids as well. Then he left for Denton and my roomie Bob got in and I invited him to go out to eat with us, which he did. My other roomie we invited, but he wasn’t able to attend, mostly due to the weather.

We had an awesome time as the restaurant we chose was the Magic Time Machine. I made the reservations originally for 8pm hoping that Cassen would be in on time, but her bus was delayed. My brother picked her up as he works in downtown Dallas and he waited for her and got to the place as quickly as he could. We got to the place at 8pm, and just waited for my brother. While waiting we walked around the place as every single booth has a theme. Some booths are small, some large. There are places like you can eat inside a lunch box, or a pumpkin, or themed rooms like the illuminati room. :P (one of my favorite rooms) We got seated around 8:20, after receiving a call from my brother that they were almost there. We were seated in a tiki hut that had crayons as posts as well as wooden posts and were served by Jack Sparrow, and we were visited by other fun characters in passing like the Mad Hatter, Wonder Woman, Sinbad, Napoleon Dynamite (who scared the heck out of Beo, along with the Mad Hatter), and Woody. The place is just an experience one has to enjoy at some point in their life and before I knew Beo was in town I wanted Cassen to experience this place and seems as though she had been wanting to after hearing me describe going here after my graduation.

Five of us split a Roman Orgy, which is a wondrous feast and they had a fanfare and the staff seemed to love playing with us and we joked back as the servers are supposed to “play” with the guests while “in character”. If I were to ever try for a part time job… I’d love to work there just for fun. *chuckles* We even had them sing happy birthday to Beo and Amberlee even though their birthdays aren’t until Saturday/Sunday, but since we were celebrating in general, might as well and they even sung their renditions of “the birthday song”. After dinner Amberlee left for home as she worked early at 6am and was thinking of calling in as with the bad winter weather the roads might ice over. The rest of us went back to my apartment.

At my apartment Cassen got to meet my other roomie. Then before I turned in we played a bit of Rock Band to have a bit of fun, and then Cassen crashed on my couch. I helped with getting her a cab as with my work schedule changing a couple weeks ago from 2pm – 10:30pm to 8am – 4:30pm I wasn’t able to drive her there myself as originally planned and the roads were not slick so I am here at work. I called her on my first break and found she had gotten into the cab and was on her way and by now should be on the bus and on her way to Mexico. She wants me to visit, and I will at some point, but I have a whole bunch of people I need to visit.

Beo is still in town and after work I’m gonna pick up my friend Teser from work and take him to [livejournal.com profile] savrin’s apartment for gaming. I may be late as I will be going for dinner with Beo and my brother at The Cheesecake Factory, that they planned on going to tonight.

So far this weekend definitely turned out to be jam packed… that’s all I gotta say! I’ve not had a weekend like this in quite some time… Quite a lot of it off the cuff, something I’m not really used to and spur of the moment. I’ve managed ok, but *sighs* I don’t think I let my roomies know about these plans, and I thought I had when Cassen first planned coming through here on her way to Mexico staying the night… I think I may have gotten [livejournal.com profile] guardlion mad at me… Perhaps I’m just over thinking… *sighs* If my head wasn't screwed on properly I think I'd even leave that behind sometimes... I can be such a scatter brain sometimes...

Other than that things have been going great! ^_^ The weather shaped up nicely after I got to work and stuff. I can't wait to get off... I have to pick up my friend Teser, since his car is in the shop. Then I have those dinner plans and gaming. Yea... definitely jam packed.

I got a whole lotta errands taken care of today. I mailed off a number of things like a letter to one of my aunt's, something for an ebay auction, and shipped off something to WhiteWolf for some fursuit stuff. I also returned RockBand and the stupid Circuit City right near me said yes I could return it, but had to purchase the new one at another store so I drove to the one in Denton. So I have the new set of instruments that I haven't opened yet. Had a good time though before doing errands talking on the phone. Had a good talk with someone very close and special to me. :)

So I'm back home and things... I'm gonna try out the new RockBand and see how the guitar works. Other than that the past two days have not been anything "exceptional", but not bad either. Yesterday had Amberlee over and we watched some Elfen Lied. Then later we got food at Ban Thai and went to the usual Tuesday meet. Nothing real special. I do rather enjoy hanging with friends... I'm working on finding other stuff to occupy myself with as well for sake of stuff to do really...

Oh and here is a funny meme thing I saw being passed around...
bedroom toys
Powered By Adult Toy

I don't think I'd ever charge for such, but this little quiz was a riot and funny to take. I probably got a lower score because it was me judging myself and I am a very harsh critic. :> In any case I'm gonna keep this short... Take care people.

To [livejournal.com profile] isfacat! Hope yours is fun and enjoyable my friend.
I tried replacing the guitar and they wouldn't let me. They did the night before but I accidentally got the PS3 version. :/ It seems that the RockBand return policy is quite lame... Where even if you buy something from a store that you can't exchange something within like the first 30days. What if you wanted to completely return the equipment? I think I'm gonna tell Circuit City where they can shove it and just return the whole thing and get a new one.

I had Star-Gazer over last night as we kinda celebrated something having to deal with my current job... (more like to celebrate that things will soon be over when I find a new job) We even had Bob along and we all ate out at Romanno's. Had good food and I splurged a bit, but it was all good.

No idea what I'm gonna do for my "weekend" I have off the next two days... Well I do need to send a check or money order for something I bought on ebay, other than that... No real plans...
    EDIT: I just got in my last year work review and I was actually quite surprised by the feedback from my supervisor. It seems he does think quite highly of me, where some I was a bit afraid of my job which has been some of my main reason for trying to hard to find another job. Since I am now able to move about within the company I may also look at internal positions, but I'm still looking to get away from here, and possibly go with another company if a good opportunity arises.

I recently bought the game Rock Band for my 360 after being told by my brother and a few local friends to pick it up. I did so on Friday after work and brought my XBox 360 and stuff to [livejournal.com profile] savrin's to play around after D&D gaming. Thanks to my new schedule I am now able to get back into table top gaming. I decided to be a paladin as from what our GM was saying we really needed one. So I bit the bullet and even though I don't like playing them I am one... I just don't like having to be "lawful good" and basically be an upright 'prink'...

After gaming I opened up the box and got out the rock equipment. It was me, Savrin, and [livejournal.com profile] sairo who played for a bit, and then I went home. I didn't work yesterday which rocked. I had my brother over, and we played Rockband, but found that the guitar was having problems. While going to the usual Saturday movie meet we stopped off at Circuit City where I bought the game and I guess I didn't have my head screwed on right, and yes they allowed me to swap out the guitar, but when I went back to pick up the box that had the equipment it seems I picked up a PS3 one instead of XBox 360. *grumbles* So after the movie meet we weren't able to Rock with all of us... :/ Ah well... cest la vie.

After work today I will replace the guitar with a 360 one. I haven't heard back from AIG who I had an interview with on 2/26... I will get back to further looking for things via monster.com and other things... I may even look for a civil service or government job as well.

Just wanted to wish a very special birthday to [livejournal.com profile] grey_jackal! ^_^ Yours only "technically" comes once every 4yrs. so have yourself a birthday celebration that makes up for the other lost 4.

I can't wait to get off work today and enjoy time with friends and things of that nature. Hope everyone else has a good weekend as well.
I decided to post what I came up with for me in the Create-A-Wolf flash based game that can be found on FA!

I can't believe I was actually able to make something that even closely resembled me in "non-morphic" form. ^_^
Well I want to wish [livejournal.com profile] fuzzwolf a Happy Whelp Day... on his actual birthday. May you get spankings and other things you wanted. Today after work I stopped off at Best Buy and picked up Guitar Hero III for my Wii, and Bomberman Land. I love Bomberman and had to get it, now the other I know people will say... Get Rockband and all, but I don't have enough people to play with... I may get it as I could just take it over to friend's places at times, but lugging my 360 around isn't always the most fun ya know...

I did go out to eat tonight with my other roomie as kind of a late birthday thing. It was fun actually and quite enjoyable as the place we went was actually quite a nice restaurant called "La Hacienda Ranch"... It looks like they were the first to create frozen margaritas! :P I found that interesting being their claim to fame. The food was good and service was excellent. I also got a free pie for my birthday... ;) Yes I know it wasn't cake so it isn't a lie.

Just been enjoying things as they come... Oh I wanted to get to the art... I commissioned a lovely and talented artist that drew something for Amberlee and got a themed pic... I got two versions of the same pic...

Here is the first of the two. Hope you all enjoy! I know I enjoy this piece. ^_^

To... [livejournal.com profile] javachkn & a lil fireball named [livejournal.com profile] paddlefoot_wolf! :) Hope you both have lots of fun and things of that nature! ^_^

Today marked the change of schedule to that earlier time coming in and guess what... *grumbles* I thought I set my alarm properly and I think it did go off, but my usual morning "routine" of bapping snooze once or twice didn't go like expected and I actually "woke up" my body alarm clock kicking in at around 8:15am... :/ *sighs* I called in to say I was gonna be late. So one time actually being 'late' in 3yrs. of working at this place I'd say is pretty darn good if you ask me.

So... Here is my work schedule for the next few weeks... Lets see how long this goes, at least lets see how long this lasts while I'm still working here at this place...

  • Sunday: 8am - 4:30pm

  • Monday: 8am - 4:30pm

  • Tuesday: OFF

  • Wednesday: OFF

  • Thursday: 11am - 3pm (training)

  • Friday: 8am - 4:30pm

  • Saturday: 8am - 4:30pm
I'm happy to have this earlier shift as I'll be able to workout and hang out in the evenings. Still looking for a better job... Got an interview this Tuesday on campus with AIG insurance. Hope it goes well.
Today my car had problems and I called into work letting them know about it. Having a friend help me so as to not have to pay a dealership or some local nutjob charge me out the wazoo. In other news though I was able to hang out with friends today like one certain fox [livejournal.com profile] lhexa who was in town. We spent a nice bit of time talking with my roomie and Amberlee joined us and we all went out to a nice monument in the local area... I may post pics that were taken on my FA... My brother showed up as well there and we had a great time. I even helped a family and took a few pics of the entire family and they in turn took pics of the group of us too which was nice.

After that we went back to my apartment so that Amberlee could get to work and from there just had a nice bit of fun chatting and playing of games. Some of which we all MST3K'ed, but it was all fun. Then we went to meet up with a group of friends at [livejournal.com profile] fuzzwolf's place for a bit of a "birthday gathering" as his birthday is this coming Monday. Speaking of birthdays... I want to wish [livejournal.com profile] bauske a happy one. Hope things were fun and whatnot.

The time at Fuzz's was fun, with everyone there chatting up a storm. It's so interesting how internet'isms can get into conversation and things of that nature. All in all the party was fun, and the cake was funny. Had good food, good company, and things of that nature. I will be starting my new schedule tomorrow and when I am at work I'll put the schedule up. I am not sure how long it will last, but hey it's better than what I have been working... It's currently 8am - 4:30pm, with Thursday being my "short" day of only 4hrs.

I hope to catch some people online and chat at some point, but with how schedules and time zone differences... It kinda makes things hard sometimes, but hey it isn't like anything that hasn't gone on before.

In any case, g'night peoples! Oh and thanks again for the birthday wishes again, even though it is after my birthday as well. :)
Play some funky music! *chuckles*

Well I didn't play anything 'funky' in my opinion, but after getting some help from [livejournal.com profile] regek (Dylan) I got my music keyboard hooked to my mac and some cables that Amberlee advised I get and can now make some music quite easily with Garage band! ^_^

I am thinking of perhaps doing weekly "ramblings"... Perhaps going like 5 - 10 minutes straight... even with mess-ups and see what I can create as most of my songs and good melodies get spurned from ramblings. So... without further ado...

Nameless Song #1 of 2008, with more to come soon hopefully...

I know this will make some happy and I need to try to let the real minstrel out who has not made music or really who hasn't recorded music in quite some time... I need to set the music free, especially the music in my heart, as my moods and emotions really do change how my music flows... This can easily be told by one of my first songs that has a title "Heart of Frost and Ice", and is actually one of the 'completed' songs... I plan on making more and possibly actually getting around to getting them "finished"...

Hope you all enjoy... Comments/critiques welcome.
That is some how I really feel right now... *sighs* I'm not gonna go into any details here on my lj, suffice for those that I know care and do read it I haven't been in the best of sorts the past few days. Things have been just a slew of ups and downs... Some here and there as we are human beings we can be very emotional at times... Sometimes overly so. I'm just feeling rather defeated right now, like nothing I do will ever make things right for anyone, let alone myself... Though enough on this... It isn't like anything I do or say can change that has happened. All we can do is take what has happened, learn from mistakes made on our end, and even if some mistakes weren't made by yourself and move on...

I had an interview today with a company called Nationstar Mortgage. They do have a website... I scoped them out... I was actually called by a lady yesterday and setup the interview for today @ 9am. I got to the place on time, almost got lost on the way. I met up with the recruiter lady I spoke with and she had me go to one of their interview rooms right off the main lobby. She and I spoke a bit and she left the room at 9:11am... I waited around and nobody came to actually interview me... I waited over half an hour after 9:11, making that 9:41am and I left, telling the front desk receptionist that I could not wait any longer. I got home, took care of a few things, and while out to check the mail I come back to a voicemail from the hiring manager apologizing and she gave her direct telephone number. I haven't called it yet, not sure if I want to... Someone could've been courteous to me and at least let me know something instead of just waiting around. My time is very valuable to me and I changed my sleep schedule around for them. I may call them back and reschedule...

Work wise I go in today at my normal shift, but I plan on talking to my supervisor, and the manager over RMG as I was called on my birthday about earlier shifts and even told the person who called about me being part time and I was told that it was ok, only to find messages on my cellphone later saying... "oops... sorry", to that effect. I so can't wait to get away from here... *grumbles*

Last night had a wonderful dinner with the family at Outback. I was called by my older brother on Tuesday who wished me and my brother a happy birthday, though he wasn't able to make this dinner. It was nice... All in all things dealing with my birthday were pretty good. I want to thank everyone again for the lovely birthday wishes and everything... I was very touched and quite surprised to say the least. :)

Speaking of birthdays though I want to wish [livejournal.com profile] uckticoonox a very happy one! You go you poi spinning tigger! I also want to wish [livejournal.com profile] oats_a_plenty (Hyenagirl) a wonderful birthday as well. *hugs*

    EDIT: Well I sent an email off at work to the manager over RMG and someone came by my desk to talk to me. Looks like currently with my work I am gonna start working 8am - 4:30pm (No more 10am shifts available) starting this Sunday so at least that is a step in the right direction!

I want to first and foremost thank each and everyone who wished me and my brother a happy birthday yesterday. *hugs* This birthday was not a real big deal. There wasn't a big "to do" about it and I wasn't expecting such. It was nice though for the most part. Had a friend over and my brother got off work early and we spent lunch with some Chinese food and watching the movie The Fifth Element. Later went to the usual Tuesday gathering with some local fur friends. My brother was also able to attend after school so both "birthday boys" were there. After the gathering spent some time talking and was up not too late, not like the 18th I didn't get much sleep at all, though as Amberlee can attest to I was regardless a "ball of energy" the entire day. I had quite a lot of people call and text me, and truthfully wasn't really expecting much of that... *blushes* I didn't really hear from one person, but then again... *shrugs* cest la vie... I was surprised by at least one person I wasn't expecting to hear from though... Odd as it was. I was also surprised by a friend or two with some gift art for my birthday... *blushes* One was in email form, and the other can be found here on FA.

Yesterday also, before eating lunch I met up with that co-worker and helped her out... She had been trying so hard to not need my help, but am glad to have been able to help. Helping her was the one "chore" I had to do. She went out of her way to come up to near where I live and got a little "lost" on the way. We did meet, and I wrote her a check for the full amount she was needing. We talked about work woes and things like that. Like I said before it isn't about the money... I personally right now don't feel any use for it, and if I can use it to help those I care about, then so much the better... Money can't really buy happiness or love or anything... It is unfortunately a necessary evil, as for without it one can't really survive in today's society and such.

I will be heading out later this evening and meeting up with my parents at a nearby Outback Steakhouse as we weren't able to meet up on the actual birthday because of my brother and school. It'll be good to see them, and this will be the first time they've seen my new hairstyle in person... I sent them and my grandmother that pic I posted in an email. They like the new style... Some they weren't the fondest of long hair so they're happy... I still miss it, but ah well... *sighs a little* I haven't gotten any calls for interviews yet except for next Tuesday an on campus interview... If that is the only thing that bites... I will jump on it to get away from my current dead-end job.

Enough rambling on this end... Things are fine, and even with the beginning stuff of this year not exactly being the greatest there is still more of this year to come, things are unwritten and I won't let things currently taint my outlook on the years to come.
I was tagged by [livejournal.com profile] ichi_black... So... here is a meme.

Seven quirks/facts about me:

1. I have been dubbed with having "icy cold paws of death" especially in the mornings.

2. I'm very chivalrous, to a fault.

3. I have a small collection of plushes that I have been giving mostly geological names, kinds of rock and things like that.

4. I do have arachnophobia, but mine isn't the screaming run away kind... I am more the kill the spiders kind of person.

5. I love swords, ninjas, and piratey things.

6. I almost was a were before I came into the furry fandom.

7. I still wear my highschool ring, even though I should probably get another to wear on that finger.

I think I will let this die with me here on my end... I will not tag anyone.

I do want to thank everyone for all the wonderful birthday wishes and was so surprised with some birthday art I have received. *hugs to all* I also want to wish [livejournal.com profile] dook a happy birthday here on my lj as well. My birthday has been good for the most part. I will be celebrating things with my parents tomorrow. I want to hurt my scheduling people at work though... I was called at one point to try to change around my current work schedule and almost was able to get an earlier shift and seems after I agreed to coming in earlier that it gets yanked from me, like other things in my life, but no use focusing on things. There is so much more to look forward to and have fun.
Work just showed me through another co-worker why I definitely want to get away... One of my co-workers had a payroll audit and seems perhaps here and there had messed up on her timesheets here and there, misquoted an hour or whatnot and they are taking away from this paycheck almost half! Her rent is coming up and after talking with her I offered to help with her rent as I know she would easily be able to pay me back later and truthfully I wouldn't be hurting money wise, and it would be helping a friend/co-worker. I was offering to write her a check right then and there... She said she may call me and I gave her my telephone number... I hope to hear back from her as perhaps she may not need my help, but I wanted to offer it in any case...

Some... I just wish I could do more in general... To help friends, and those I care about. It isn't about money, or anything like that... What use is money if not for yourself then use it to help those you can and who are in need.

Some... I am semi 'dreading' Tuesday... I don't know why... I can't wait for my day off, but truthfully it isn't like I'm gonna get what I really, really want this year anyway. Hell I'm not even sure what I want anyway. My main thoughts are on people who are in need... Not about me or what I really want.

EDIT: I was introduced to this bad "Within Temptation" last night by a friend and some this music video on youtube has some emotional imagery... I plan on getting music from them either finding it on itunes or finding CD's. Oh... and new icon. ;)

The past few days have just been fairly regular actually. Received some stuff I ordered from ebay, and did receive something from a new friend made @ FC. I was a little surprised especially considering only barely meeting the person. Though FC was truthfully the first time for me meeting quite a few people who I definitely hope to keep in better touch with and get to know better friend wise and such.

Yesterday was just another "SSDD" at work... I don't look forward to coming in, and things like that. The only "good" thing you could say was that my direct supervisor called me in for a "coaching" going over my month's stats, and looks like I'm doing well actually. Looks like I've been bringing down my AHT (average handle time), but still not happy about how work has been in general. I don't like the idea of having to brush off customers and get them off the phone in 13min. or less. At least it was a bit over an hour off the phones and we did talk about some interesting philosophical/religious stuff... Anything to keep off the phones... I so am looking forward to hearing back and getting interviews from companies I put my resume in with at the recent job fair I was at. I at least have one interview with one of the companies on campus February 26th. If they are the only ones offer me a job right here quick... I'd take it in an instant just to get away from my current dead end job...

I spent last night after work with friends at the usual movie meet that I've not really been able to attend with my current crappy work schedule. We watched Casino Royale. It was good hanging and being social on a Saturday night. Did get to speak lots with Amberlee on a few things. After the movie we did watch an awesome music video, and then I went home and played a bit more Lost Oddysey. If any of you are RPG fans and have a 360 I'd advise getting the game.

Other than that, can't wait for my "weekend"... I'm not sure about looking forward to Tuesday or not though... :P No real plans or anything... My schedule kinda makes things hard to plan around anyway, as does my brother's school schedule.

Today I definitely shocked all my co-worker friends! *snickers* I made sure to take the time and styled my hair properly unlike yesterday when I went to visit Amberlee over at her arpartment. Yesterday did some laundry and hung out with them... But back to what has been going on today...

People at work have been shocked, and everyone here has actually rather liked the new style. They were actually more noticing the nice business attire I was wearing and semi noticed the hairstyle change afterwards. I've loved many of their reactions though... ;)

*grins and chuckles... "evily" *

It has been great just to see how people were amazed at the total change of look, though I've not been the only person to do something drastic like this. Another friend lopped off his hair here at work and I've known the guy for over 3yrs... :P Just unfortunately another older gentleman here may not be happy with me, who is a sterotypical "hippie" guy... Awesome guy, I hope to keep in touch as may see about going through him for a wolf/dog hybrid later in life...

Oh and again Happy Valentine's Day to people, to those who celebrate it or not. All it is, is just a posterboard/greeting card holiday anyway. In truth, all it is, is just another day of the week. If one wants to really celebrate being with their loved one they really don't need a certain "day" to do it, but that's my opinion. Showing someone they are loved in little ways each and every day if always something in my opinion, showing the person that they are important to you, even something as small as just communicating, but then again what do I know? :> *chuckles*
I was woken up EARLY this morning by my roomie about some domestic disturbance happening upstairs adjacent to our apartment. A woman was yelling and screaming "HELP ME!" and we heard lots of noise, at one point the lady even ran outside her apartment, but before that after hearing the first yells for help I called 911 to let the police know about the disturbance... It looks like they came rather quickly and got to the scene very fast unlike how I've heard cops react in a timely fashion. I'm not sure what all went on as I remained anonymous, but after the ordeal as I just haven't been able to get back to sleep yet. When I saw from afar outside that the cops were finished questioning the lady and what I guess is her "boyfriend" or probably he isn't now... *shrugs* I dunno, don't care, but when the cop was walking by I said something to him and remembered one other time there was when the guy was outside the apartment banging on the door and someone inside wasn't allowing him in and yelling from the inside to the guy saying "you're drunk", or something to that nature. I went out to tell them to quiet down, but wow... something like this happening? First time really something of that nature in the time I've been here... *grumbles*

I'm gonna try to get back to sleep...

Oh... and Happy Valentine's Day... to those who celebrate it or whatnot, and best of wishes to all the happy couples out there... *sighs*
So... I did it. I went and got the haircut I was talking about previously. I made sure to get it done and didn't really tell anyone as I wanted to surprise my friends at our usual Tuesday gathering. I do have to say I think it went over well. I got one reaction that I was hoping for when Damien did a gasp and double take. Fuzzwolf was actually the first to notice. *chuckles* I plan on keeping this style around a while and when I resigned myself to going short I won't skimp on trying to make sure my hair gets trained to do this properly.

Image here as FA doesn't like embedding images.

Hope you all like! :)

P.s. I also picked up the new Blue/Black Nintendo DS! It's slick!
Truthfully all it is, is just another day. Yea I used to kinda look forward to it, but *shrugs* Perhaps it's just me being a little melancholy, because I just am not exactly all that welcome to the idea of that day. I shouldn’t let it get to me, and I’m not going to. I guess part of me was hoping that perhaps by this year things would be different and that day would have a bit more meaning. Perhaps in some ways it might… There are some things on the horizon and some possibilities to consider.

Right now though, I’ve been really worried about my brother… He has kinda put himself into a bad position and one that resonates hard with something I went through a few years ago. I don’t wish that kind of anguish on anyone as he’s been very torn up inside. I’ve given him what advice I can, and only hope that he finds his own happiness. That is all I want for him and for anyone else… Especially those I care very deeply for. I want to see them happy, and will do what I can to help in that, even if it means taking myself out of the picture. I think at least in one case, it probably means just sitting on the cliff side, and watching as a ship sails off, and possibly consider not returning to that port town… playing my music and entertaining in other bars in other places. Perhaps find another port'o'call? Who knows, perhaps playing music overseas? That all depends on what happens in the future, and what things may come my way.

I’m going to do what makes me happy… I am still figuring that one out, but hey that is what life is all about. Life is full of ups and downs. I’m not focusing on what has been in the past… I will have fond memories of many things, and will always have regrets, but won’t let the bad things burden me. Everyone’s past can be a little sordid, but we continue forth, even if one is afraid one must continue to step forward, and not run away. I’ve got too many good things to look forward to and to live for. ^_^ I just do hope that some things I am wrong about, but in my opinion it’s always better to be prepared for the worst and hope it doesn’t happen and wish for better than that. I know it’s not the most optimistic of outlooks, but I feel it is better to be cautious than to be completely carefree, or perhaps it is better to be care free? I’m not sure. Regardless I plan on living life to the fullest and not letting anything hold me back.
Well the job fair is totally over. I have some high hopes for getting some interviews from a few of these companies. One thing I know I have to do though and I had resigned myself to this fact... I'm gonna be cutting my hair and going with short hair very soon. I did ask some of the recruiters if they had a problem with men and long hair, and even if they don't have a problem with it, for the initial interview all things equal me against someone else, my long hair could be what bars me from getting the job. So... In the next few days I will just buck up and get it done, much as I'd rather not have to... :/

After the job fair I went back to my apartment and played a little Devil May Cry 4. The game is absolutely gorgeous and fun to play. I've got the entire series now as I purchased a Capcom 3pack collection of the first 3 games. I then went home to visit my parents. We had a good visit. I hadn't seen them since Christmas and had missed seeing them. We talked about the interviews and they really expressed that I should cut my hair and that was what really tipped the scales and I'm gonna do it, most likely next Tuesday. My diploma came in and part of my graduation gift from my parents was a real nice frame to put it in. So we framed the diploma and went out to get something to hang the frame. We decided on the 3M leave no mark strips, though may end up using a more traditional nail/wire to hang the frame. When it was time to leave my parents gave me stuff to take to my brother which I delivered last night after getting gas at a gas station that is right close to where his apartment is. He showed me some stuff he was working on, then I left so he could go to sleep... Then got home, chatted on the phone some and played some more DMC4.

The good thing is... I already know what kind of hairstyle I'm gonna go for when I go short. I think the style will take a little moose and teasing to pull off, but I would like to have my hair be like... this. I don't think it's very far fetched from how I kinda do my hair right now, but I'm not trying to be a "gamer geek"... I just really liked Leon's hairstyle from Resident Evil 4 (RE4). So at least you all know what I will be going to look like soon. To top it off, at some point in the near future I plan on getting LASIK and not have to wear glasses except for the 'look'.

So any thoughts on the "new look" I'm going for?

Oh... and new icon! :P
I dropped off my resume at many places yesterday at the job fair. A few would be with insurance companies as a claims rep. It would pay quite decently and at least it isn't a sales job with commission and whatnot. The two coolest jobs in my opinion would be a marketing position, some of which would be coming up with writing stuff about home automation products for the general public and not make things "technical" for them. Another would be a project manager for a company that does market research. I am feeling very hopeful that at least one of these jobs will pan out and there are a lot of advancement opportunities with any and all of those jobs.

Oh and I want to thank those who have already given me some valentines from my previous post. *hugs*

I will be going to the second job fair thing today and see if there are different companies, if so I'll stay around. If they are the same then no point in staying there. I got me some Devil May Cry 4 to pick up and have fun demon slaying later... ;)
Saw some other people posting this, I remember doing this last year... I hope to maybe get at least one from someone. ^_^

Hey everyone. I'm going to do my con report a little differently. I set up my thoughts kinda in outline format. I'm going to apologize ahead of time as I met a whole lot of people, and memory is a little foggy after the con and stuff. I'd love for people to message me, here through LJ, possibly give me contact info so I can keep in touch with everyone. I've been rather busy after the con. Read more... )

So that is my con report in a nutshell. I hope you all enjoyed. I know I may not have mentioned everyone by name and stuff, please forgive my bad memory and stuff. I do hope to see you all again very soon at another con. I hope to keep in touch with new friends made, and hope to keep in better touch with everyone in general. Hope you all enjoyed my report. ^_^

I just got back from FC! I haven't really had internet access even though there was free wireless at the hotel. I wasn't in my room enough to even use it except for checking my flight before getting back today. The con was a blast and I wish it wasn't over. I will miss my friends, both newly made and those that have stuck with me these years! You all helped make the con a blast and I will give a report quite soon. I just wanted to thank all my friends, but also, the staff for their hard work and for making the convention great as well.


P.s.: If anyone has pics of me in suit or vids from the dances, please do pass links my way or contact me and possibly send files? :)

On a note from the previous lj post... I wanted to wish a very special pirate captain [livejournal.com profile] calgor a very happy birthday. I've been all out of sorts lately and had almost even forgotten the day as I had some strange idea in my head that it was tomorrow! :/ Very odd indeed...

Good thing is that I did call him and wished him a birthday in person, or as close to in person as possible. Was good talking with him. I want to wish him well on his new endeavors though with winning an interview and obtaining a new job. I hope everything else goes his way as well. Only wish him the best... and want him to be happy. :)
I've been helping some friends of mine who just moved into a new apartment unpack and stuff, and am in the process of getting everything packed for my trip to FC. This will be one's first time living away from home and I hope it will be a good learning experience. I personally feel that I lucked out getting with two very nice roomies. I think they will have some decent chemistry and that things will work out fine. I wish them the best and hope to see them often.

Now about FC... I'm not arriving till Thursday around 10am~ish because the plane atm is scheduled to arrive at 9:40, so giving time to get baggage and all will be in fairly early. Only problem I'm gonna have is the person I'm rooming with doesn't arrive till later so I may have to stash my stuff with someone till we get the room. Other than that, all is well.

I can't wait to see all my friends there and just have fun in general. I've been badly needing a vacation and lately have been more on the up side of things. Perhaps this is the start of something better? I don't know, but I feel things will be fine, and whatever happens this year that things will hopefully work out. It is still too early to write off this year in it's entirety.

Oh and a package I sent off overseas last Thursday, that arrived quite earlier than expected. I was hoping that it might take a 'little' longer as the recipient's birthday isn't until this coming Thursday. I received a pleasantly unexpected call from the recipient... Was good chatting and all. In any case I'm rabling... See people at FC ok! ^_^
Friday night after work I followed some of my roomie's advice. Get out with friends and such. So... I was called by a friend who wanted to hang out after work and go see a movie. I hadn't seen this friend in a while so I decided to do so. We met up at the theater and picked a foreign film called "The Orphanage". It was a really interesting ghost story to say the least. I liked it, and my friend was a little taken/freaked out by the movie as he said it had themes and elements that kinda really got to him. It was a cool movie none-the-less. We also stayed in the parking lot and just talked for a while as it seemed he really needed to get some things off his chest on dealing with some friends he knows and I tried giving my best advice to him.

I also want to wish [livejournal.com profile] arakinuk a belated birthday and glad you made it here to the states fine. I'll see you on Thursday this week and all my other friends who are going to be at FC. Depending on how long I stay at my current job I'm looking at vacation stuff and definitely going to cut AC out of my trip schedule because I'd rather make a different trip instead, and have more time this time around. Though it depends on the job too and vacation time.

Oh and cellphone wise I've been very lazy and finally switched over to the Razr that was given to me... It was so annoying getting all the contacts moved over and I think I'm gonna get with Dylan about seeing how to sync things with my mac as I know my brother used his mac and razr together to transfer files via bluetooth. I want to thank people for the well wishing and want you to know that things are going ok, just taking things one step at a time here, and continuing to move forward.
To become a better person...

This is going to be one of the hardest and broadest goals I have ever really set for myself. I know in a previous post I posted about wanting a few things, like to be in better shape, things like that are for your regular every day person. I'd like to think I'm better than that, but am by no means perfect. The person I want to be is far from perfect. I'd like to be like some of the great people that have come before me, but with my own style and panache... I don't need to be someone famous, or whatnot because I am special in my own way.

There will be things that I need to work out myself though. Sometimes I think I dwell too much on the past, sometimes look to others for approval, and a combination of many things. Some things that I have not fully forgiven myself for. We are all forged by experiences, life, and the pursuit of the future.

Happiness? This is transient and comes and goes. Sometimes stays more than goes, but things go up and down and change daily. That is like how life is... You take things one day at a time and that is what I have been trying to do. One of those first steps is to forgive myself... If I can't do that how can I really be happy just looking back at things? I have so many happy things that have happened that can get overlooked when something bad happens. What has happened should be there as a reminder of not what to do again, but one must move on with things first. The future is also unwritten and you have to make it for yourself. That isn't saying that one is necessarily alone, but in the proverbial sense I think you all may understand.

I also used to be a lot more of a bouncy person and that had kinda died off this past year. I know I'm not the only one who felt this and have had this pointed out to me by others. Sometimes I get so wrapped up and focused on something I forget to let it all out and have some fun and I need to do more of just that... Life is too precious not to enjoy and spend with others. I don't want to lose this side of me as I think this has been a lot of how people see me and lately I've more been a morose, and moody person... Jaded by some bad experiences, some bad decisions made, made out of being young, naive , and ignorant. I can't let what has happened get me down and keep me from looking forward... and having fun.

I want to be a lot like the person I was four years ago, but with more knowledge under my belt, more understanding of my own self, and that of others. To have patience and fortitude, to go the distance and persevere whatever obstacles may arise. If there is one lesson I have definitely learned is that some things are definitely worth waiting for... I learned this lesson, along with others... Not in the most pleasant of ways, and it cost me dearly... Also still learning to just fully let go... And take that plunge into the unknown. You live and learn though.

I usually don't think in means of myself. Sometimes I haven't been really sure what I wanted. Other times thought I did, only to have that change. I also don't want to be selfish and only think of my wants, because in truth one thing I've wanted more than for myself is the happiness of those I care for. Don't worry yourselves about me... I plan on being happy as well. Everyone has their own way of finding that which will make them happy. Happiness is also different to every single person.

I have high hopes and dreams, and am looking towards the future and though it may be cloudy and the path a bit muddy, and a lot of things may be uphill battles. I feel I have the strength and conviction to see things through. Who knows, there may be a few surprises along the way, some good, some bad... That all remains to be seen. The future isn't written in stone and is what you make of it, sometimes with the help of others.

All that one can do is take things one step at a time... Place one foot before the other, and keep on moving forward. Those that wish to accompany me along this journey feel free... I don't mind the company, just know that sometimes like with anyone I may not be there as I may have things I have to "go it alone", but know that I will also try my best to be there for any and all of you, who I care about.
I know I haven't posted anything with real substance so here has been what's been up with this wolf... I know the past few days I haven't really posted anything of note except for a few birthday posts. I've been kinda busy. I'm getting ready for FC, and been dealing with work and stuff. Yesterday went out with Stargazer and went car shopping with him. He's been looking at a Jeep Compass which looks nice and I could tell he really liked the car from the get go when he got in the driver's seat. Just little things like him touching the console, and stuff told me a lot. I guess buyer behavior class wasn't a waste! :P I also spend time with the usual Tuesday crowd which was nice. We watched some strange British comedies like Black Books (I believe it is called) and Spaced (which is quite weird).

Today I woke up late after being very late talking with a very close friend. Other than that hopes that I've had for 2008 being great have kinda been slightly dashed... With thoughts on the horizon of the homestead and company I've been living with for the past few years, and some other recent developments. I don't have really high hopes right now for 2008. I can't wait for FC though, as that will help being around friends and having fun because right now I definitely don't feel like a strong wolf. The past year I've just been living life as it comes... Just hoping for things to get better. I know that it will, eventually in time.

Songs can speak volumes and listening to them can evoke emotions, sometimes very powerful ones. Sometimes I guess I'm a romantic at heart... I at times have had a tendency to try holding onto things even long after things have been over. Hoping and dreaming... Hoping, even when the chances are slim... This is true friend wise as well as relationship wise. Here and there though, a few of my friends have said I have been a little 'bitter' or jaded lately. In truth perhaps I have been, because of all that has happened. I learned a lot, some very painful lessons of that to be sure. I've been kinda closed off and definitely not sure on letting anyone or anything that close to me again. I don't even know what I want, or what would really make "me" happy... I thought I did. I'm working on this, as it takes time.

This song goes out to all of you who have had friendships and even relationships. Here's to those of you in a relationship, if there is deep love there, even though there may be troubles, don't let those destroy what you have. Things can be worked out, even in trying situations. Just don't lose sight or lose hope...

In truth memories both good and bad are what help shape who and what we are. I will always treasure those that have touched my life, as some really special friends have been such a great bastion of strength for me.

In the end I don't really now feel these lyrics are proper, but wanted to post them as this was an extra track on a CD I recently got. I meant to post these lyrics before, but now is as good a time as any, though the music in my heart has changed some. This song came from a single CD as a bonus to the one song I wanted "Rule the World" by Take That, that was the final song from the movie Stardust. I currently don't feel like I can rule the world, but that will change in time. The world is not full of storm clouds and there are silver linings, even then... It just sometimes takes a while to see that things aren't that bad. As such life continues it's never ending flow, and we must all move forward...
