How long has it been? [06 Jun 2008|06:36am]
[ mood | happy ]

It looks like it's actually been almost four years since I made my last entry.  I'm not sure why I stopped other then being lazy...but I think it's boils down to me thinking I didn't have the time when really how much time does it take?  That's my problem with a lot of things.

So...what have we missed?  Well...I'm now married and have been since March 24th.  We bought a house the same year that we were married and after I finished college (this is not chronological by the way, just as the thoughts come up) I found a pretty good job working for a software company that specializes in healthcare.

My wife is someone I've known since highschool, but we actually only got back together (after almost 5+ years) two years ago.  She wasn't happy where she was and I had always had feelings for her but never acted on them.  We talked over the phone though and I could tell that she wasn't happy there and out of the blue I asked her to move to KC.  It's been pretty much everything I've dreamed of since then.  I really couldn't ask for a better partner, wife and soulmate.

The job...which if I can stick to making entries in my journal, you will probably hear about is a pretty good one.  It pays well and I enjoy the work.  The down sides are there seems to be a lot of stress and sometimes it's hard to keep people on the team which only makes it harder on those who do stay.  But I've seen at least 2 or 3 cycles of that and it always works out.  It pays the bills and I like the people I work with, not to mention the work.

Other then my wife and work I spent and still spend a lot of my freetime playing MMORPG's.  I hope to include livejournal in the list of freetime activities now, but MMORPG's have been with me since my college days.  Right now I play two of them, Ragnarok Online and EVE Online.

Ragnarok Online is the main one I've been playing...going on almost 3 years now?  I don't know why, but it's held my attention the longest of all the ones I've played.  Lately here it feels like the quality of the gaming experience is on a decline but it's hard to quit since I lead a guild composed of...basically my wife's entire family. XD  She plays MMORPG's too!!!  Not to mention her father, mother, brother-in-law, her two sisters, her uncle, her aunt and two cousins.  We've definitely made a splash in the RO community.

EVE Online I picked up after a lot of issues with RO, but those issues were never enough to quit RO.  So far I'm really enjoying the game play.  I'll try to comment more later if there's an interest or I have more thoughts on the subject.

Other then the things I've already talked about, occasionally we watch movies (she likes anime too!).  Like right now we're watching the Full Metal Alchemist series.  I started watching it in college but since it was a series on TV I sometimes missed episodes and eventually I stopped watching it because of that.  An all around great show though.

Ok...I feel like I have tons more to talk about but it will have to wait for another day.  Time to start my Friday! I can't wait for the weekend.

So much [01 Dec 2003|01:01am]
[ mood | pumped ]

There seems to be so much that needs to be done, or accomplished. I need to finish work on my portion of my groups senior project. I want to get back into Martial Arts with a good friend of mine. There has been talk about taking a camping trip out into the Ozark mountains...which I would love to do with my friends. Also the trival things that must be done everyday. Dishes, studying, working, cooking, cleaning, and it sometimes makes me wonder if I can keep up with it all.

So far I've made it this far...so I'll have faith that I can make it the rest of the way. I'm talking about my life, college, being a friend, a brother...everything that I am.

Note: Lost Tower comes out in less then a day!!!! <--- If you can't remember think back to MU. (For my future self)

Hmmm [29 Nov 2003|08:26pm]
Well so far on this fabulous Saturday I have done a bit of laundry. Played MU for a long long time, ate...watched some TV and thought about all the things I should be doing. ^^

Yes...he's posted twice in one day! O.o There really must be something wrong with the world. No, I just want something to look back on. Though I was kinda hoping it was something I could be proud of. I'll be working on that part. :P

All in all, today was the same day that it's been for the past few months. A change only every so often.

I don't know why I do this so often...but waking up at 10a.m. isn't fun...when you go to bed at 7a.m. In anycase...good morning! I don't feel very good right now but I'm sure that will pass.

Am I doing this right? Just posting here when I really feel like there's nothing to be said. Of course! Post at the end of the day...what was I thinking.

Wow [28 Nov 2003|12:59pm]
Yes, it has been quite sometime since I've even been here. But lately I decided to take a break from work, college and everything to talk to some of my friends that I've known since forever. One of those friends happens to have a LJ too and that inspired me to write here again. I'd like to commit myself to do this more often. I always think that nothing really happens but in truth...a lot more happens then I realize.

I'm hoping to get to talk to these friends of mine more often now in addition to making more journal entries.

Shall I try and update my life? Of course!

So far, I'm preparing to graduate soon...in June 2004 from Devry University. I'm pretty excited about that since that means I'll actually be looking for a job and getting my life started. Right now it's not in the best of conditions but I'm working on it. :P Most of it is my fault...being lazy and what not.

Also, I've made a few friends while here in college. Adam, Anaka, Korey, Chris, Nate, and many others...I'm thankful for all of this. My friends and my family. Hmmm...seems more like this is about my thoughts than what happened today. Well...it's my journal. ^^

Computer! [09 Apr 2003|01:43pm]
[ mood | ecstatic ]

Oh man! I just bought a computer! For the longest while I've been using my roommates computer. Being that he was nice enough to let me use it.

This thing rocks. I only paid $750 for it and it's a 2.66GHz with a 128 Nvidia GeForce Grapichs card! It's ti too!

120 Gigs of HardDrive space...oh...-drool-

So much more! Sounds like a computer add doesn't it? What has the world done to me...

To worked up... [04 Apr 2003|09:32am]
[ mood | Better ]

I get to worked up sometimes...a reflection on the post I made the other day. It's been a pretty rough week in general but things are getting much better.

My roommates seem to act as if the little dispute we had didn't happen. One of my roommates had removed the television from the main room and put it in his bedroom...when I got home from work it was back out there. *shrugs*

Right now I'm eating CroissantPocket...Mmmmm mozzarella and meatball. Time for classes! Got to take a physics test that I haven't studied for!

[ mood | angry ]

Life is good...and then it's bad...but it's good again right?

My roommates are really getting on my nerves...tons of stuff have added up to this but the final straw just happened today.

I like to watch Anime, I haven't done so in a while because I've been so busy with school and work I've had very little time to do so. Finally a term comes around where I can...before this I've never watched cable, even though I'm paying for it.

My roommates go so far as to mock me and the cartoons I watch, calling them "Gayime"! It really makes me angry, and when things were finally turning better. I could put up with that except when I try to watch my shows...my roommates just happen to decide they want to listen to 'ghetto' music at full volume.

Grrrr...I think it's time for me to get a place on my own...and not have any roommates! So many more things then this!

If there are dishes to be done...sure enough there's only one person who does them! Trash needs to be taken out? Guess what! One person...and they feel it necessary to run the A/C 24/7...it's ridiculous...I can't listen to my music when I want because they gripe...I never say anything about theirs. *clutches his fist* I'll figure something out...or maybe these feelings will blow over...or swell into a storm.

It's a good life. [01 Apr 2003|09:44am]
Ah, we all have our up and downs in life...you just have to realize this and have to be able to get up from the downs.

Right now I'm getting ready to enjoy a Steak and Jalepeno Hotpockete before going back to class! This will be brief but I wanted to say something. :)

When I get back I hope to sit down and write a friend a letter that I've been meaning to write for sometime now.

Venting... [27 Mar 2003|11:23pm]
With every being of my soul, I have come to the conclusion that there is no way a guy was meant have a romantic interest in the opposite gender! (Not Indicating a preferences in the same gender...that is not ME)

Does it seem odd? You notice all of the guys around you, leching at girls, only interested in their body parts...and the girls like them most it seems! All I've ever asked for is someone to share my time with and it always boils down to the samething...they date someone else...forgeting to at least let me know? Say,"Hey, we're no longer a 'couple'." And all of the movies depict women as the gender always wanting commitment...BS.

I shall revel in the things I enjoy in life...food...and drink. Apple juice, milk, Bannanas, Strawberries, Peaches, Pears, All the wonderful things in life that AREN'T girls... Bah...

Ah! [27 Mar 2003|06:44am]
[ mood | awake ]

Ahem! Good morning! I almost didn't get up, but thankfully I did...I have classes today. Yesterday was a little bit worse as I did not wake up in time for class.

Sour starbursts are the best!

Do I? [25 Mar 2003|11:34am]
[ mood | anxious ]

Perhaps the reason I don't write more often, is because my inspiration to write...along with everything else never happens when I have the time, or want to do it. It's like a huge shifting puzzle and it takes time for the pieces to fall into place.

I know I'm different from others, and yet the same as we all are. But I ask myself, do I obsess more the others? Am I as nice as anyone else or perhaps I'm not as nice...I guess I'm focusing to much on myself.

Every so often I get these spurts to change the way I live my life, but I feel as if I keep falling back into the old pattern of not being able to keep...to what I want to do.

It has to be different from here on out though...for myself, my friends, and my family. For my loved ones.

Ah, the clean feel! [05 Mar 2003|12:18pm]
I've been playing UT for the past hour...I love that game. But that is not what this post is about...no. More this is to remind me of all the things that have happened this week.

I just got back fromt the dentist. I don't think I've ever met anyone nicer then the dentist that worked on my teeth. Her name is Molly! I had a great time at the dentist! Can you believe that?

Also over the weekend my sister came to visit me, since she wanted to make the drive and we had talked about it before. That went pretty well. She got her self a prom dress, the only thing is that she was kinda sick. It looks like she might have given me whatever she had.

Ah...now the final thing I've been considering is buying a new computer. The only thing is funding. I have enough but if I purchase it then I will have pretty much nothing in my bank account. Should I go ahead and buy it or should I hold out incase I need that money for an emergency?

It's been along time [26 Feb 2003|02:05am]
Well, it's about 2:06 a.m. and I'm doing a take home final that I've had for about a week. I've got two more finals later today.

Why am I posting? Ah, it seems like a good thing to do and a friend inspired me to.

Now on to life. Life is a rollercoast...up then down and then up again. Finals aren't that hard, or at least the ones I've taken so far. Every friend I have is the best that I could ever ask for. The only conflict I'm having these days is a small one with my roommate...but I think it's just because he's getting stressed by college.

Geez I'm tired. Bed beckons to me now, but I must finish the final.

Yet again. [05 Jan 2003|11:09am]
[ mood | blah ]

Ah, the beginning of my day and yet for most...it's the middle of the day. How can so much time be thrown away? Seems wasteful to me...

I did a little homework at least but for the most part, the majority of it is still left to be done.

Will it get done? More likely my time will be spent goofing off again...I must just accept what I have become. :p

A pattern...a habit...so hard to break. [04 Jan 2003|11:56am]
[ mood | discontent ]

I keep telling myself that I'm going to go to be earlier yet somehow I always stay up way to late. On the weekends it's fine, except for the fact that I sleep most of the day away and I feel like I'm left with nothing.

It has to be a lack of self control...

[ mood | okay ]

Today I really didn't want to get out of bed. It was all warm and the outside would is so very cold. Alas I forced myself out of bed and into my clothes for the day.

I've been keeping myself occupied as of late with this site http://www.neopets.com/

It's entertaining for the most part. :)

Gizmo Duck [24 Nov 2002|08:57am]
[ mood | ecstatic ]

Do you remeber Gizmo Duck from Duck Tales? Yah! Well I had an awesome dream that had something similar to that.

There were eight different suits, each with their own unique power. All of them except for the Auger could fly. Each of them had unique names that had to be used in order to summon them. When you called them, their individual pieces would soar through the air to attach themselves to whomever called them.

My favorite one that I used was named Aero, all though the rest of them could fly, this one dominated the skies. It had these dark blue lazer cutters, but it was more like lighting in that it didn't cut in a straight line. It always struck its target though.
The other one I used in my dream was Auger which could burries itself underground much like the spiders that build traps in the sand. It also could lob grenades. All of them had more then one weapon of course!

There were another two and their names were Blue and Red. Those two were the opposites of each other as well. Blue had the capacity to charge multiple shots of the large crystals that would freeze anything on contact! The Red one of course could throw flames and it was always a blaze, hot to the touch if it should need to be.

I don't know much about the other three, I saw them along side us as well as fighting with one of them. One of them I got with the Aero Lighting Cutter. :)

Ah yes, I'm sure I must seem crazy now...I don't care! I love having such vivid dreams!

Aero Components:

1. Pilot Component - contains HUD and LRC (Long Range Cannon)

2. Wings - gives Aero the capacity to fly

3. Power Cell - powers Aero, contains a special diverter to the Thrusters

4. Standard Sections - These are the Thrusters, Arms, Legs, and Torso.


My dream...

Cheesy Cheddar [29 Oct 2002|01:26am]
[ mood | awake ]

Yep, I just had some Cheesy Cheddar noodles for dinner. I've been off of work since 10:30pm and now it's close to being 1:30am... What have I been doing? Playing Unreal Tournament and eating Cheesy Cheddar noodles.


Reading up on my friends livejournals as well. Mostly just Meg's since she's the only one that posts almost everyday. :) Well for the time being I can stay up this late since I don't have any classes but that's gonna have to end pretty soon. When classes do start I'm going to have to get up at 6am. It worked out kind of bad and kind of good with my schdule. Usually I have classes five days a week but this time I have Mondays off, the downside is that everyday I have classes at 7am.


Hmmm, I've got tons of pics that I need to be putting up on the web page that I need to be updating. :D Sigh...I am just a procrastinator no matter what I do. Even when I do my best to get things done before hand or early it always winds up being almost late. To many things to name. Ah but I think I'm done with you for now, livejournal. Time for some Code Red Mountain Dew!
