What is this? [16 May 2013|12:08pm]
No really, What is this? This strange space where you can write more than 140 characters to express... feelings? WTF?

Seriously, I'm surprised I even remembered my user name and password to log on. Look at all the angst ridden bullshit from my past! Auggh!

QUICK life update [19 Dec 2010|12:33pm]
[ mood | nostalgic ]

l never write here. Have you noticed?  Do you even remember who I am? It's been so long.  Some of the names on my friends list aren't even familiar.  How sad is that?

At this moment I am:

-Manager of the Grove City Michael's Framing Department.
-In a 7 year long reltionship with Jason.
-Father of a 7 year old Black Labrador named Loki.
-Proud owner of 2 cars.  (Not really... I hate cars and their payments.)
-Living with Jason's parents so they can keep thier house. (Hopefully their financial situation will turn soon.  At least they both have jobs at this   junction.)
- currently listening to Frou Frou on MOG.  This music and this journal are making me ridiculously nostalgic.
-in the process of painting Munny (www.kidrobot.com) Christmas ornaments for my friends...

Yeah.  Not much has changed, it's just gotten more expensive ;-)

I need socks. My feet are cold.

Blurbed by Instinct [26 Mar 2008|11:18pm]
A few months back Instinct gave it’s readers the opportunity to stop receiving their magazines wrapped in a poly bag with a "privacy sheet"  as an attempt to "go green."  I opted to do so.  The website had a comments box so I opted to leave one that read:

"It’s completely great that you’ve enabled us to ditch the safety-blanket feature of your magazine.  Just think of how many doorstep relationships could have ignited between your readers and the hottie mail carrier delivering your magazine!"

Typically I would type something like that off hand and totally forget it like something I just blew my nose in, but Instinct aparantly thought it more than a dirty tissue. They printed it in the April 2008 issue. Granted, the second sentance seems slightly incomplete to me now that it’s in print but... I was blurbed by Instinct! They like my sense of humor! Woo!  It’s no big thing, but it is fun to have what you would typically consider your dorky ass sense of humor recognized in a non-embarrassing social manner by people you don’t even know.

Super Fantastic! [31 Jan 2008|10:09pm]
[ mood | cynical ]

Hello Live Journal. It's been a very long time. I've missed you, though you may feel neglected. I hope there are no hard feelings.

*Ahem* O.K. Enough with the creepy conversation with inanimate objects.

My life is fine if anyone's been wondering. My job is still crap, because for some reason I choose not to change it. My loss I suppose. Jason is still fabulous as ever. We're still working on the plan to by a house. The bright side is that I'm actually ready to go for it now. Living with Devin for six months gave me a whole new perspective on how truly easy it is to live with Jason. We gel well. I don't think I realized this fact until there was something, or rather someone, to challenge my understanding of my current living situation. Hopefully we'll be able to better organize things soon so that we can actually get the ball rolling. We're very much done with this apartment. It's time to move.

I dragged Jason to see Juno with me last week.  He hates me now.  Not really, but I think that was a couple of hours he will miss dearly.  I think if they played one more modern-folk, tree hugging, hippie wannabe song that he would have shoved his soda straw through his ears for sanity's sake.  I didn't mind the movie.  I thought it kind of cute.

I feel mostly brain-dead right now.  Work sucked all functioning gray matter out of my pores and stomped upon it.

Is it just me? [18 Nov 2006|01:22pm]
[ mood | Bored and annoied ]

So, the New Gwen Stefani song... Horrid... yet... I listen to it anyway. What's that all about? I find myself dancing about to it in my usual manner, then I stop to listen to the lyrical cesspool that it really is and wonder what the hell I'm doing. Why must I dance to bad music? I blame MTV... because for some absurd reason I've actually been paying attention to the pop cesspool (redundancy is fun!) that has tainted my television. I dance regardless. *Sighs* My hips don't lie I suppose. Ack! Shakira! *Boo-hiss!*

Mmm...dusty. [15 Nov 2006|05:26pm]
[ mood | ill ]

*Blows the dust off this journal*

Uggh! Children, I have not used this thing in ages! It's been so long it actually gives me nostalgia. That's kind of crazy. People pop into my mind such as Jessica, Hak, Stacey, Niki... You know, the ladies in which I rarely speak to any more. Somewhat sad for that, but that's where life takes you from time to time. Some people stick and some people don't.

I'm thinking my life hasn't changed much in all the months passed. Sorry to say I still work at Michael's. I'm at a different store with different people and more money, but it's still redundant. I'm still with Jason, we hit 3 years in September. THREE years. Time just disappears.

Speaking of Jason, he's been hinting at buying a house. It's a good idea in that we would stop throwing our money away on rent. It's a horrifying idea in that I would be permanently bound to Jason and Columbus by real estate. It's one thing for me to live here and still have the option to run at any needed time, it's another thing to officially and permanently re-establish the place I know of as home. That's crazy talk. Why does the thought of owning a home in Columbus mortify me? I've spent the last three years of my life here, and one would think that would be enough time to work out the cold feet and commitment issues. I suppose not?

I have a cold and I've run out of tissues, this is my current illegitimate tragedy... Moo.

It's so quiet.... [25 Jun 2006|09:20pm]
[ mood | exhausted ]

I was gonna blog about this weekend and our kickass party but... I'm exhausted and there are too many details. My highlight was jumping in the pool at 2 a.m. in my 2xists... and also that Alicia and Devin stayed up all weekend ^_^ I love them both dearly. Poor Jason's loosing his voice, but he had a good time for the majority of the weekend. Now my apartment is empty and it's ooooh so quiet. Kind of dull really, but you'll have that after a party heh.

I just watched "Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants" (I really think they could have come up with a better title, but whatever) ... I cried every 5 minutes. I'd usually just get misty eyed, but crying is good every so often so I didn't stop myself. I laughed all through Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, so why not cry on Sunday? I like to have a broad spectrum of emotions in a short period of time lol.

True or False? [11 Mar 2006|01:29am]
I don't know if I really agree with this... semi-sorta...

Slow and Steady

Your friends see you as painstaking and fussy.

They see you as very cautious, extremely careful, a slow and steady plodder.

It'd really surprise them if you ever did something impulsively or on the spur of the moment.

They expect you to examine everything carefully from every angle and then usually decide against it.

What's Yours Is Yours, What's Mine Is Mine . Can There Be Anything Inbetween? [15 Dec 2005|11:34am]
[ mood | disappointed ]

Most of my entries will be set to "private" or "friends only" beyond this point.

I am not ashamed of the material within, I feel that all of the things that I have written here were a legitimate representation of the moment in which they were posted. That is not to say I haven't changed my mind or calmed down about the matter at a latter date. I find writing these entries to be an effective way to get my thoughts in order so that I may speak logically and coherently to the people in which they involve. Feedback was welcome but not necessary. I respect the opinions of others even if I don't agree with what they have to say, and I only expect them to do the same. If I disagree with you I will eventually tell you in some way shape or form, but only directly and never behind your back. I may deliberate a point with others that concerns you, but never to slander you, just to receive opinions that may better reflect your feelings, rather than my own. At current, there is a situation which I cannot handle without appropriate communication on the part of another. This situation will effect those dear to me and out of respect for them I am privatizing my journal. Please be honest to yourself and to others, and as always treat them the way you would like to be treated.

Sincerely yours...

"Begin It Now" [13 Dec 2005|12:16pm]
[ mood | Just Woke Up ]

Until one is committed there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation) there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision raising in one's favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance which no man would have dreamed would have come his way.

Whatever you can do or dream you can do, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.
Begin it now.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
poet, dramatist, novelist, and philosopher

I need to surround myself with motivated people... There's a lot more hope and enthusiasm there.

Marcus' Baby Came to Work Today [03 Sep 2004|01:25am]
I don't like holding babies. They're too delicate. I'm too paranoid for such insecure entities... Like I said, I don't like holding babies.

Emily stopped working on a usual basis. I like Emily. She should work more because she's fun. But, Emily stopped working on a regular basis.

Adam and I wore similar shirts today. 12 people told us that we look alike, as if we didn't notice for ourselves... Why is it so important that Adam and I wore similar shirts today?

I'm in such a blah mood today. I'm repeating all of my thoughts twice for emphasis on how blah and repetitive I really feel. Just so you know, I'm in such a blah mood today.

Home chickens? Robin? Home chickens, really? It might stick, and I'm afraid LOL

Hi! I'm in Cincinnati! At "home"... yeah not so much anymore... it's kind of depressing here... Is it 7:20 yet so I can go hang out with Niki, Natalie, and possibly Alicia? No... it's not... saddness.

Bullshit, Coolshit, Jewelshit [13 Jul 2004|01:54am]
[ mood | pessimistic ]

So... I went salsa dancing and had an awesome time awhile back. It was the most fun I'd had in a long time. Krystal and I went and got our groove on. Goodtimes. Fabulous day... then I got a ticket for failinf to switch lanes while passing an emergency vehicle... I didn't know this law existed...but...it does... and that sucked and pissed me off and now I want to savagely kick every cop I see. *shruggs* I suppose I'll avoid that in case I ever actually NEED a cop... rather than having them impose on my life without good reason... *bitter*

Lake weekend was this past weekend. Good times. I got a "tittle lipsy" as ken would say... I literally tripped through the kitchen while slurring the words "Hehehe I'm just proud I made it out of the bathroom." Oy...

Went to my first Jewel concert. It was totally awesome. I picked up Devin on the way to Indianapolis from Bellfontaine... I was in the car for fricken ever. It was worth it though. Jewel is so pretty and funny and cute and... I wish I could have met her. Natalie said she had a few Jewel shows she could get to... We'll see what happens. *hugs Natalie* THANKS 10,000,000,000,000 times for the tickets!

J's car just got broken into... they didn't steal anything, but they busted out his window =-( Not his year for automobile health heh.

Tired now... bedtime

Rent: PAID [01 Jul 2004|04:06pm]
[ mood | excited ]

So, today was our first day of rent. $870.00 (including pet/safety deposite) I also signed up for our gas bill in my name yesterday. Let the bad credit begin! LOL. J/k. We'll get it covered. I severely need to open a bank account here. Kroger does alright, but I hate carrying around all of my cash in my pocket. It's not a good time walking around feeling like you could lose $400.00+ dollars at the drop of a hat... or wallet (Ba-dum-bump- PSHHhh)

I'm going back to the nasty tonight for the first time in ages. Should be nice. I miss "home". Have things to deal with there anyway... Hopefully I can leave my car for the week and then go back and it will magically be fixed *L* My poor parents... I've turned into a son who only talks to them when I need something... how horrible. I love them still. Mom misses me, I can tell by the sound of her voice when we talk... then there's the fact that she said "Just come home to momma, it'll all be ok," the other day *L*. Hope my car makes it ok... and without any tickets happenening due to crappy exhaust.

Uggh... it's so hot today and my car has no A/C. Fun 2 hour drive.

Natalie invited me to see Jewel in Indianopolis on the eleventh! *WOOT!!* For free naturally. Jewel is my favorite singer of all time. If we get to meet her like we met Mraz... I'm gonna be twice as starstruck I swear LOL. *skips off with glee* WEEEEE! *L*

A day with Krystal and some stuff! Yay stuff! [06 May 2004|01:11am]
[ mood | awake ]

So I didn't wake up til 1:00...again... I'm getting sick of that. Hafta go to bed earlier to counter balance it heh. Of course then I'll go back to Columbus and get on "Jason Standard Time" again... With him working til midnight staying up til 4 is the best time to hang with him... I'd say we could go to bed at like 2:00 and wake up at 10... I'm much more cranky and less likely to have fun in the morning however. *shruggs*

I've been procrastinating on writing a cover letter for a job... I'm spoiling myself and allowing myself to fall into a lazy slump... Now that I have something responsible to do I keep brushing it off. BAD! Bad! It'll only take me like 10 minutes too... Sad state of affairs.

Hung out with Krystal today. We went to Starbucks and I gotta Vanilla Bean Frappacino thingy... good stuff except for the ice chunks at the bottom. After that we saw "Ella Enchanted." VERY funny movie. Love Anne Hathaway. She's gorgeous, but not in that annoying plastic way. Prince Charmon (Sp?) was pretty cute too. The ending seemed kind of botched and anti-climactic to me, but... it was still a funny movie to boot!

Deviantart isn't loading tonight... Everything else is though... I've become a "SHoutBox" addict... it's sad and I need my fix. =-( It's prolly best though since I want to start the whole going to bed earlier thing.

Oh! I also started an art project today... It's a "vector" self-portrait type of deal. I didn't get to do it in college like Krystal did, but it looked fun so I thought i'd do my own at home. Wee! I don't really like the picture I'm using as a reference so I may end up doing 2 when it's all over with.

I told mom I'd go to church this Sunday for Mother's Day ... oh yay... Boring old people asking me where I've been and what I've been up to ... Just so I can tell them "Nothing" sarcastically because they don't really want to know... I'll prolly run into Kevin Ammerman who wants me to go to his wedding... I didn't know him all that well... I don't really wanna go *L*

Cincinnati Bell is SHIT. [03 Jan 2004|11:20pm]
[ mood | bitchy ]

OK, so I WAS happy at one point and time today. Work was really busy and I had returns out the ass, but... I was in a good mood and was very much awake so I didn't really mind. That was fine, I was just a bit tired afterwards, but still chipper no less. Then I come home to see another wonderful phone bill message on the dry erase board. The fuckers didn't switch my account over like they were supposed to. They also neglected to credit me the $266.00 dollars they said they would. I could rip the incompetent fuck's throat out I swear to Dog. I'm kicking my own ass because I didn't write his name down, nor the date that I made my last phone call. So tomorrow I have to try to convince the morons that they neglected to rerate my bill from 2 months ago along with the current one... UGGH! THEY ARE PURE SUCK! This so pisses me off... Now I have to go to bed angry because they customer service line is only open til 7 pm. Who the frick closes at 7pm on a week night? That's so gay... More gay than me, and that's just sad *L* *sighs* Stress is so bothersome and unnecessary... Why must Cincinnasty Hell inflict it on me so?

I start full time at Garden Ridge tomorrow. 1-close Every day except I'm off Thurs. and Fri... In which I will spend in Columbus. So I'll prolly work 1-close for the rest of my Garden Ridge career... that bites. Hopefully it won't be an incredibly long period of time...

My Alizeè CD needs to come now... even though I ordered it yesterday... but...Yeah I want it now.

Devin didn't answer my return call twice today... damn queer =-Þ

*grumbles and wanders off*

Alizee [28 Dec 2003|01:53am]
[ mood | *YAWN* ]

Work was really long and boring... I OD'ed on Sweet Tart Hearts.

Oh, returns weren't bad at all despite it being after the holidays. I'm praying people aren't waiting to return things at later dates as to prevent the after holiday madness... Which would only prevent more unexpected madness in the end... but that's just pessimism speaking *L*

Krystal and I exchanged gifts yesterday and had some interesting conversation.

Niki and I exchanged gifts tonight and also had some insightful convo. I'm too tired for details, but it was cool. She gave my copy of FFX back finally =-P

I've rekindled my interest in Alizee. She's so much fun ^_^ I went to her website and found new songs and videos and what not. Good stuff ^_^

Random quiz thingy Lindsay took:

1) Using music artists'/band names, spell out your name.
C ollective Soul
L it
A lizee!
Y asunori Mitsuda

2) Have you ever had a song written about you? Niki wrote the corny "I love My Baby" song for me
3) What song makes you cry? Gary Allen- Tough Little Boys
4) What song makes you happy? Jason Mraz - Waiting For My ROcket to Come/ Anything Jewel
5) What do you like to listen to before bed? Nora Jones

7) Who was/were your idol/s when you were younger? I was too busy living in my own bubble for idols
8) First album you ever bought? Ace Of Base - The Sign

This entry was rather pointless, but a lot of my entries are. *shruggs* Oh well.

Death to the drama queen [25 Dec 2003|01:21am]
[ mood | frustrated ]

I HATE DISTANCE!! Cincinnati is not nice to me. I come here and the world erupts with fun and parties in Columbus. GRR! Not that I hated doing the same old family thing, I quite frankly would have been sad not to be a part of it. It was just the post-family gathering that urks me. I'm here alone while Jason is off gallivanting at Eagle =-( I haven't gone clubbing in ages. He's gone like 3 times without me now and it makes me very very sad... and slightly jealous =-P It just seems like we always have bad timing... When he works, I'm off ... So when I'm in the mood to club he's in the mood to sleep... Which is understandable... Yet sucky. Then I get to hear all about his nights out that I couldn't be a part of. ARRGH! I need to move up there SO frickin badly! *Applies softlips strawberry chap stick in excess* Drama drama drama ... Well screw drama because it's useless and annoying *L*

I got fun clothes, cool shoes and another kick ass pen.... Now all I need is a party and I'll be quite content *Smacks the drama fairy* You BIZZATCH! I told you to leave. *Sigh*

Merry Christmas everyone, and may your new year be drama free.
