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!

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 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.
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 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.

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.
Well I have all my presentations done with and all classes pretty much over except for one that we have to turn in a written report after our presentation. So far from the way it feels out of the 3 groups for my Marketing Problems class my group did 2nd best as there was one group that blew the socks off everyone else... :/ At least ours was pretty good and our company rep liked our presentation. I do have good feelings about this class.

So far I think I have 2 A's. This class would make it 3 and I so want to end this semester with all A's. ;)

Tonight I go out to see The Golden Compass with friends. Then after movie I do some other writing on the report and then send that off. Good news is my schedule next week got changed so I can attend graduation. ^_^

Have fun everyone... Oh and go see this movie, and if possible see Stardust!

Well this weekend is certainly going to be filled with movies. I went out last night with a large group of local furs, of which included [livejournal.com profile] fuzzwolf, [livejournal.com profile] lhexa, [livejournal.com profile] loish_de_talto, [livejournal.com profile] greyjakkal, [livejournal.com profile] sky, my brother, my roomie, Tesser, [livejournal.com profile] savrin, and many others, including PAULA who I haven't seen in like forever... and she also brought her boyfriend! The evening was awesome. We went to see the TMNT movie and all I have to say is that it was better than what I was expecting. I was fairly impressed and for a totally CG movie the animation style was very cool.

I have always loved the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles since I was young. My favorite was Leonardo. My twin's favorite was Raphael... I know after this movie he and I will be arguing again who is better... ;P *chuckles* My word of advice on this movie...

GO SEE IT!

It is very worth it... Last night after the movie we went and hung out at a near by Whataburger and then from there we disbanded... On the way home though I did pick up the Wii TMNT game and tonight after work will be hanging once again at Savrin's place for a movie meet. My roomie's gonna bring my wii if my brother doesn't show.

Well other than that not much has been up really... Just have had lots of stuff on my mind, but been relaxing this past spring break which is almost over. :/ Ah well back to the grind stone.

Last night went out with a group of furs including [livejournal.com profile] fuzzwolf, my brother, Guardian, Gwaland, Daiul, Amberlee, and a few others meeting up with a good friend that used to live here in Texas that was just in visiting. [livejournal.com profile] spiketxtyger! :) It was good seeing that kitty, though the last time I saw him was at AC earlier this year and he had pink hair and he shaved all that... *chuckles* It was definitely a bit of a change not seeing him with pink hair. We ate at a Dickey's BBQ and enjoyed talking and socializing. It it sucks that he is not here in Texas, but *shrugs* Ah well cest la vie. As long as he is happy with where he is at now I think in North Carolina. He was in Washington for a bit, and also living in Florida.

Before we ate it started to rain so we ate inside, though after eating we all decided to go out to a movie. We decided to go see The Covenant. The movie wasn't all that bad, but neither was it all that great. Male witches with powers... The movie does have some neat special effects and may be a cult classic. I do have one word to describe it...

Globtastic! :P

Go see the movie and you'll see what I mean. *chuckles* It was a b movie at best and probably better to see on DVD and not needing to pay big bucks to see it on the big screen, but going out and being with friends was the main reason to see it and no real big blockbusters were out... After the movie just came home nothing all that spectacular. I can't wait for work to be over and go home... I'll need to kick my butt into gear and make sure to work on school stuff as I got my first exam for both my online classes coming up on 9/28.

I'm going to try to be better on updating my journal but no promises there.
