[b]Q:[/b] What do you get if you throw an epileptic into a lettuce patch? [b]A:[/b] A seizure salad! … and if he’s holding a gallon of milk you can have a milk shake with it! LOL soOoo, other than that not much is happening. Tuesday was busy moving stuff, and work has been pretty busy which is nice. But yea, very little happening. yup. that’s it.
I am bored. It’s a combonation of not really being interested in a lot of stuff, and having a routine that is a little too engrained, and the fact that there is little option to break the routine. I am not interested in a lot of things. Maybe it’s because I cannot afford them. Maybe it’s because I am a lazy bum. Maybe it’s because I have a lack of bubble-breaking motivation. I don’t know. I have an engrained routine that is getting tired. There are little discrepancies in my day to day schedule, but generally, it is the same thing all day, every day. Except that I throw parties / drink / lots of people occasionally. Those are nice. But just about everything else is same-o, same-o … not enough variety. Blah blah blah. blah blah blah blah blah. Skip the above, hit the comment button. I know you will. blah blah blah blah blah. Hell, skip the below too, and just hit the comment button. Blah blah blah blah blah. There are few options to snap out of this little sucky state. Please note that I am not depressed or down, just stuck. I am poor. Oh so very poor. College + books + car + rent + insurance + everything else makes for a non-rich me. Sure, enough to get by, but not enough to embark upon interesting things. For example, going to DefCon. A week in Vegas. $65 for the entry fee, plus gas, food, entertainment, etc. It could *easily* cost $250. I don’t have $250 to blow. Because of this serious lack of cash, the number of opportunities that I can grab hold of diminishes quickly. So, it looks like money is the root of all the problems. Well, there’s a slight problem with that, too. I make enough to get by. But what I receive in a non-financial way is worth a lot more — extreme flexibility & knowledge. I can go to school at any time. I can make my schedule change in a heartbeat, and it’s no problem. I also have technology-industry opportunities that few 20 year olds have. But it’s just not enough money. That’s my latest rant. That’s about it … I don’t have much else to say. Another thing … I’m tired of putting my neck out there all the time, be it work, people, girls, whatever, to try and get something started and then continuously getting rebuffed. It sucks. It hurts. It’s a huge demotivator towards doing it again. It’s tiring.
Yup, 20 years old. Not too different … just makes me feel like I’ve got a little more weight on my shoulders, and a little bit more credibility to my name. It’s a little depressing knowing that at 20 I am not where I wanted to be. A couple years back I set a couple goals for myself, very few of which I have attained. I’ve come to grips with that, though, so it’s not too bad. Being 20 really doesn’t change much … one of those really off birthdays. Went out with Laura, her mom and her brother tonight. Surprisingly, Laura’s mom is really fun — I haven’t spent any length of time with her in forever, and it was pretty cool seeing that there are people who are not my dad who are advanced in years yet still know how to have a good time. Got an unexpected happy birthday phone call from Janelle, which was nice. I’m supposed to go out to my parent’s place tomorrow and pick up some packages and such … I’ll probably get roped into staying for dinner and yada yada. It’ll be fun — especially because my brother is in town (???) from Utah (I think he is … ?????). The guys at HPI might take me out to breakfast in the morning, which is nice. Life marches forward. I am throwing a party on Friday, July 19th. Looking to kick it off right around 9pm, or whenever people start showing up. It’s being held here at 423 N. Weber, and should prove to be a rocking good time. Give me a ring or e-mail me if you have any questions — No present required, but donations for alcohol will be greatly appreciated. Bring a friend and come have a good time!
