Reading old stuff

Going back reading through the old entries in here is fun.  Makes me kind of remember how people used to be.  I guess I always knew people would change, but I had always hoped that it wouldn't change quite so much.

I suppose I should give a little update on my life while I'm at it.  I'm living in an apartment in the west end of Richmond, and it costs entirely too much, but it's nice.  I'm working full time (for now) at PetSmart as a full time pet groomer; not the most glamorous job, but it pays well.  Took the last year off at VCU, going back this semester, hopefully I'll do better.

Love life's about the same as it's been the past 4 years.  Recently went to Disney World with Leslie's parents, and we pretty much decided we're going to have our wedding down there next year sometime.

Still driving my car, and loving it.  My little Toyota MR2 tears up Broad St on the daily.  Too fast for my own good, as it has gotten a reckless driving ticket on one occasion so far.

So that's my recent life in a nutshell.  I don't think I've changed that much, but we never know who we truly are.

Your Birthdate: August 4

Being born on the 4th day of the month should help make you a better manager and organizer.

You may be more responsible and self-disciplined than you realize.

Sincere and honest, you are a serious and hard working individual.



Your feelings are likely to seem somewhat repressed at times.

The number 4 has something of an inhibiting effect on your ability to show and express affections, as feeling are very closely regulated and controlled.

You are apt to be much more practical, rational, and conscious of details.

There is a good deal of rigidity and stubbornness associated with the number 4.

Strange night...

So tonight I was walking back to GRC after a pleasant evening with Leslie at Johnson. We did some oil pastel work, it was fun. I drew a pretty landscapey thing with a tree and a pond and hills, it was cool. Hui was there and we ate hot wings and watched Adult Swim. Awesomeness.

But as I began, I was walking back to GRC and walking my bike through the courtyard. I pass a group of people and one of them says, "Hey we need to talk," apparently not to me, but it really was. Turns out he wanted to help me out by putting some air in my tires. Got up to his room on the 2nd floor and got some air in my tires, after fixing the innertubes. After doing that, he oiled the chain for me, and noted the offness of my brakes. So he got to fixing them and ended taking my back wheel completely off, and is now still in the state of putting a new wheel on, from his old bike.

And Sam, are you getting kicked out of GRC or are you having a party that will get you kicked out of GRC? I'm confused about this.

Dear Livejournal,
I miss you; we don't communicate enough anymore. I feel like I take everything you give, but give nothing in return. You bring me the lives of my friends, show me the occasional funny, and even give me today's news and enternainment. I'm sorry I mistreat you and malign you and neglect you. But since you're an inanimate object, I believe I will continue to do so. So hah!

breaky weeky thingy

Bla bla bla, I'm bored. I wanna go out and do something, but I have no means by which to leave the house. I have 2 cars to my name; one doesn't run, and the other hasn't been properly titled yet, so I can't use either. Oh yeah, I guess I got a bit ahead of myself. I got a new car! '93 Toyota MR2. This thing is fast as fuck, but its a manual, so I'm having to learn how to drive all over again. It'll be worth it once I get it down though, then I can tear up the streets.

So school is going well, except maybe one class. I got an early alert in my e-mail, meaning I have a D or and F in one of my classes, but I don't know which. I think it may be my biology lab, which I think I'll just drop for this semester, and take it next semester and do it right. I don't know how I get so behind; well, I know how, but I don't know why I don't fix it. Oh well, guess I just have one more class that I have to "try again" at. le sigh...

later guys

Well well well

I was doing pretty well there for a while, with the updates. Here's another.

Last weekend was pretty fun. Went home on Friday evening to have dinner with the fam. Dad and I went out to see Constantine; it was quite excellent I thought. Came back that night to stay with Les. She was sick most of the weekend, so I took care of her; she was doing better yesterday, but the sickness seems to be back today.

I can't sleep at night anymore. Last night I was up until about 3:30 hanging out with Chris, Kris, and Betsy. They are probably some of the coolest people I've met here at VCU; I am quite glad I moved over here to GRC, aka the gerk. The people are great, and its awesome to have a courtyard to go outside and hang out in, rather than having to go out to the park. And not to mention the 24 hour guest priveleges. I am lovin it!
