I love how I randomly decide to write in this thing. I'll go for a year, then I'll be back.
So, I'm going to break it down:
1. moved to Boston
2. am constantly cold
3. classes are a lot tougher at BC than at WKU
4. miss my speech friends
5. work out nearly everyday--that's still weird to me
6. am still dating julia
So, that is pretty much the basics. It isn't very detailed, but my life is consistently changing. I will say that I'm happy at BC, but it is a lot different than WKU.
I am looking forward to Christmas, not the flight home though. It will be nice to see Julia. I have to find a job, and I may end up working at this damn restraunt. I hate working in the food business. It is hard work. I hope to hang out with Drew, and I want to get through a couple of books while I'm home.
I'm going to try and update more often. If for nothing else, it will be a nice depiction of my thoughts. Time to go study my life away...
So, I haven't posted on this thing in ages, but last night's incident deserves writing. Anyway, I'm going to get right to the story.
I'm driving home from Julia's at 9:55 PM. I get in the turning lane to turn into my neighborhood, and I take the turn sharp. Well, when I cut the turn sharp, I went into the oncoming traffic lane...but it wasn't a big deal because I didn't see anyone coming. Well, all of a sudden, this guy going easily 60 mph comes flying through my neighborhood as I'm turning in. We nearly hit, but I swirve over to avoid hitting him. My mistake--I should have been more careful. Almost getting in a head on collision should be scary enough, but that isn't the end of the story. This guy proceeds to throw on his reverse, do a 180 degree turn, and starts coming after me. So, I'm like, oh shit, this guy is pissed as hell. So, I try calling home and no one is there. I drive by my house and don't even slow down. Then I call Julia. Well, I drive around my circle in my neighborhood, and I come to the stoplight to exit the neighborhood. Luckily, there are some people loitering this oil change place right beside the redlight. All of a sudden, I see this redneck from hell get out of the car behind me and come to my window. I'm royally freaking out. I'm still talking to Julia. He comes flying up to the window, points his finger at me, and yells "You need to learn how to drive. I will rip you out of this god damn car and wip your fucking ass." At this time, he notices I'm on the phone, looks at the people over in the parking lot and gets back in his car. This guy had a Nascar racing hat on, huge ass glasses, and like three teeth in his head. I turned right, back on the main drag, and went slow to see if he was going to follow me, but he turned left. I stayed on the phone with Julia and drove back to her house and talked for a while. This guy had to be drunk out of his mind and have road rage like hell. It was so crazy.
Anyway, I just wanted to write that down before I forgot all the details. Thank God I'm still alive. And also, thank God I'm leaving this shit hole of a town in Tennessee. Yay for both things!
Tomorrow we leave for Norton, and I'm pretty darn excited. I get to see a lot of cool friends that I only get to see a few times a year, so it shall be loads of fun.
Nothing really big or new has happened lately. I'm actually waiting for a Pre-Law club meeting, and I just found this new computer lab that I didn't know existed. Thus, I came in, sat down, and I started to write.
Saw The Prestige. It was amazing. Micah and I just sat there through all the credits just talking about it. I've never done that before, and it was a cool moment.
Missing Julia like crazy. In one week from tomorrow, we will have dated 2 years exactly. That's pretty crazy and pretty awesome. I'm not going to lie...i'm excited.
I just purchased a vintage record player. It is my new scavenger hunt. I'm really excited about it. To me, it just has one of those cool personas revolving around it, and the music sounds great coming from it. It is so hard to find records though. Any ideas besides ebay?
Dressed up as a clown for halloween. Halloween is so crazy. Lydo won best costume in my book. Creative and cool as hell. Props to you Lyds. I think I just scared some people cause clowns are kinda scary. Although that isn't the reason I dressed up as one.
Meeting is about to start. I'm out. See some of you this weekend! Yay for that!
It has been quite a while since I updated this thing because I didn't really have anything to say. This term has started off pretty okay.
I have this Judicial Process class right now, and the professor has made me think more about my life than maybe I've wanted to. I really want to get admitted to a really great law school, and he has really just put things into perspective. Meaning, it's gonna be tough as hell. I've also been thinking about whether it would be better to live a life where knowledge is the key thing I seek, or a life of controlled stability. I have a friend, whom shall remain nameless, that continually seeks knowledge always. He has said many times that he doesn't care what he does when he gets older, but he just wants to learn more and more. I think that is awesome, but at the same time, it just doesn't seem realistic. I don't even know what I'm saying. I just want to be satisfied with what life I choose because it has recently just occurred to me that I'm probably choosing it right now. Sure, things can change, but with each change, it's definitely not going to be easy.
Anyway, life has been great. That has just been on my mind heavily lately. I've been watching the OC Season 1, and it has made my LIFE. haha I don't know why I am getting into it so much, but I love it. It makes me laugh so hard, yet the drama wraps me up. It's life changing. trust me.
I saw Sufjan Stevens in concert with Lydo and Ryan. It may be my favorite memory thus far this year. It was a very nice night.
Hopefully, I will see some of y'all on the speech circuit very soon.
I've been "home" for a week now and couldn't be more thankful. It's been great to see everybody and meet all the new people. I can't believe summer is over though. With classes starting tomorrow, it really has sunk in that summer is a thing of the past. By far, this past summer was the best summer thus far. Hanging out with Julia, working, and doing all the crazy things we did was a blast.
Saw World Trade Center for the second time last night. I really like the movie for so many reasons. I'm becoming annoyed at the people who won't see it because it is a 9/11 movie. It is so much more than that. I don't believe they even mention the word terrorist in the movie. I respect everyone's opinion, don't get me wrong, but I just think that is a lame excuse.
Fixing to leave and see Invincible. I am such a sucker for sports movies. It's weird. My favorite movie when I was real young was Rocky IV. I guess it has stuck with me since then.
Here's to a new year, a new celebration of friendship, and the ability to love.
Sitting in a new dorm room feels pretty crazy. Micah is still unpacking shit behind me. We've been going at it since 3PM today, and I just finished. It's 11:32PM. I wonder why it took so long this time. We had a lot of stuff. I'm just glad it's finished. It's amazing having a new roommate, new room, private bathrooms, etc.
School is fixing to start. Another new year. crazy.
I saw Fiona Apple in concert a few days ago, and that was an experience. The most INtense, passionate, scary thing I may have ever seen. It was great.
School started today for Julia, and it begins for me in a few weeks. I really dread leaving Jules. Long distance relationships are a lot tougher than I thought they would be.
Got to enjoy Center Stage the other day. A good dancing movie goes a long way in my book. Ballet does some wicked shit to your feet.
Haven't updated in a while, and I have a second at ford (actually 9 more hours), so I thought I'd write for a while.
Stood for 9 hours solid saturday at my first ever outdoor concert. Train was great. Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band, not so great. With a name like that, I really thought they would deliver, but they didn't do it for me.
Also, I went to Busch Gardens last week. That was a lot o' fun. Rode nearly every ride. Scream Therapy is a great way to relieve stress.
Fiona Apple is this Saturday!!! Though she is a little mental, I'm pretty excited to see her. Julia is freakin' out to see her. This is Jules's favorite artist.
School is rapidly approaching. I'm anxious for it all to start back. New room, new roommate, new year, new classes... etc. I can't wait to see all of my friends in speech. That makes me want to go back.
I have to work 63 hours this week because I got so many hours off last week and was paid for it. This is the most I will have ever worked in one week. Long, boring days at a car dealership. Now, I want to go back to school real bad.
Gettin' to eat some Bagel Bites for lunch. that is the most exciting thing that will probably happen to me today. That and the fact that Jules is going to come over during lunch to talk. I gotta work 8-9 today. 13 hours. later
Another long day at Ford, and another day passed. The summer is flying stressfully by.
This past weekend Julia, myself, and her parents went to the Smoky Mountains. We rented a cabin up there and just relaxed. I was on the deck, and the view is seriously like 5 rolling mountains. I'm in the hot tub, and all a sudden, rain starts to pour all around. It was so beautiful to see the completely different perspective. It seemed magical. Trip was needed. It was great.
Going to see Guster and Ray Lamontagne in concert tomorrow. I'm excited.
Talked to Ivan last night for a long time. I miss him a lot. I must go to NYC to see him and Erica at some point. The sooner the better.
I guess the rest of the summer is planned out. Go to work, hang out with Julia, see a few concerts, and read. Getting ready to see all my friends when school starts. I think school will be a break for me compared to this 50++ hours at Ford.
The last couple of days have been amazing but so tiring. The night before last I saw Pirates of the Caribbean at the midnight showing. It was crazy. People were dressed up, and they started screaming when Johnny Depp came onto the screen. I've never been a part of something like that, and it was insane. The movie was really good though. I found it very entertaining, and it was fun being out that late having a good time with Jules.
So, that night was fun, but nothing compares to what went on last night. Seeing Jamie Cullum in concert was probably one of the best experiences in my life. Jules and I were front row in a sold out crowd. The Gabe Dixon Band opened for him, and they were awesome. It was so fresh. They were so grateful to have the opportunity, and people were really into them. All I can say about Jamie was that he delivered. The show was super long. It started at 8, and we left at 1145. Jamie came back for an encore, and he sang for another 30-45 minutes. He is a dynamic live performer, and he really creates new and refreshing stuff. He sang Dontcha and Golddigger on a complete wind. He came out in the audience and just sat down. It was great. Go see him in concert. You will not regret it.
I'm at work...all day. great
