Wow, just wow. I want to comment on how awesome the past few months have been. They have literally been eye-opening. My level of consciousness continues to increase and as a result, new doors open almost effortlessly. Take for example, the radio show thing. I have been thinking about doing a radio show for years upon years. Only now, have I harnessed the energy to make it happen. I knew it was going to happen before I found out. I knew that I had hit all the right buttons, so to speak. Compared
Wow. I can't believe I've spent almost 5 years posting here.
This site is literally a living shrine of the past 5 years of my life. I can't even bear to think of what I was posting a year ago or two years ago or even three years ago.
It's amazing how time passes us all by. I wish I was as into Atari as I was back in the day. It'll always live on as part of my spirit though.
Wow. Just wow. I never even set out to become the highest poster in the first place.
Been going good. Not much that I can think of.
Brother got transferred even further north to a different prison. Been trying to deal with that somehow.
Car brakes need repair.
Work's going great. I'm researching quotes for various services we receive and doing lots more analysis on the data we have. Enjoying it.
Looking to take a course in business management. Thinking about changing majors.
Finally, thinking about getting back into this hobby. Best way to start is the LI ga
After all, how could I?
I've got too many ties to this community to just up and leave.
Haven't had much time to play classic video games but I'm hoping to get a new TV soon that I can hook several systems to at once.
So many ideas for my future I've never really bothered to think about what I want to do with my life.
I major in Web Design at CCV but lately, I've become complacent. I don't have the desire to do the homework anymore. It's nothing more than a series of dealing with boring coding exercises and crap like that. I don't want to spend my life doing that.
Doing some thinking, I came up with a few ideas of things I'd like to do before 40:
- Fall in love, get married and have kids. Get a
I guess it's about time I got serious about life in general. From what I've seen the past few days, when you're constantly drinking, the health issues start to slowly creep up on you. I can't keep doing this.
I've also gotten to the point of telling off people. You know that things are that bad if you start doing this.
I need time to reflect on things. Time to get my head straightened out.
Ahh, day 1 of my 4 day retreat from the pressures of the working world.Let's see, what did I do today? I finished up homework for an online course. All I have left to do is write a "business plan" for my fake brewery that maybe, just maybe, could be a reality someday. I do need to learn how to brew first after all. ;)Afterwards, off to my favorite pub to enjoy a few brews. Tried the Curacao Wit at VT Pub and Brewery. Excellent Belgian-style ale that's a cross between a white ale and a wheat ale
Haven't you noticed that half the topics in the 2600 forum could have been avoided if people used the search function? That's the beauty of the internet though. Everyone wants to think that they are/were the first person to post about something, although they're actually one of the other 999,999 people to do so.Just an observation.
I'm still alive for the matter.Just very, very busy with work. However, I feel the more I work, the more redeemed I feel inside.I can sense big things on the horizon but until I get to that point, I've gotta survive hell week at work.
Well, as some of you probably saw, I have a thread detailing the hassles I've had with my soundcard lately. I've tried installing newer drivers and even re-installed Direct-X. Nothing's happening. This error came up about 3 days ago and I just can't seem to figure out what the f'cking problem is.Looks like I may have to replace the soundcard. I don't know anything about adding/removing components so I'm nervous about this. It may be the only option I have though.If you have any ideas for soundca
It's the time of the year we all dread (and also anticipate) at work: Valentine's Hell. Lots of overtime, over 1,000 (or more) extra people for 3 weeks and lots and lots of work to be done just to prepare/maintain the place to accomodate all these people. I certainly look forward to the overtime especially as it's becoming more and more difficult to make my rent on time each month. I probably won't for next month but hopefully I can get enough overtime to help with other bills next month. But an
Don't you love it when people come in for a few hours, work and then go home? Too many spoiled rotten people out there. They just don't understand that a job is a job. You either take it or you don't. I love it when people waste my time. Really makes me think sometimes.
It's going to be ramping up at work for Valentine's Day. I can hardly wait. I want to work a lot of overtime to help cover my bills better and also get more stuff done around work. Our situation with hiring people seems to be stabilizing. I am hoping it doesnt' fall apart by Valentine's Day. It is harder to find good help nowadays. I will be starting another semester of college tomorrow. I can't wait for that. I have an online course in Intermediate Website Design and another course called Two D
I've found that since it's a new year, I've got a new set of resolutions to follow up on. I think the biggest and most difficult challenge is trying to save money for my future. I'm going to start by joining a 401k plan at work. It might just be the best thing I could do with my money for starters. I also hope to pay off some lingering debt so I can concentrate on the most important things. Besides that, I am working on being a better housekeeper. It's hard to keep my apt clean but I am working
So the damn brakes in my car went soft yesterday. I noticed when I was trying to stop the car and the brakes went nearly to the floor if not quite. Stopped by a parts store to buy more brake fluid, since upon inspection, I noticed the resevoir seemed empty. It didn't do much good though. The brake light still comes on and stays on. I can stop the car but the brakes are sort of weak. This really helps though. Now it's either make the rent on time or fix the brakes and be late on the rent. I'l
I just wish we could get rid of one person. All they're doing is dragging my morale into the toilet with their laziness. It's to the point where I think it will be downright impossible to find good help throughout the winter. Best to roll up my sleeves and get ready to "grind the stone". I don't like it but I'm left with little choice nowadays.
Ahhh, the feeling of finishing up another long semester of classes. My brain is officially fried to the point where shock therapy would sound like fun. A few years down the road, I'm going to look back on this college experience and ask, "was it worth it?". I definitely think it is so far. My chat project for one of my courses (see the BChat link on right) is working now. I am waiting for the instructors to send a login script for PHP so I can offer people the opportunity to sign up, hardcode th
Well something pretty rare happened earlier. I actually met a nice girl over some tea. We spent 2 hours talking about stuff and I think I have another friend here. I'll keep hanging out with her as long as she wants. We have a lot in common and that helps too. Just thought I'd share.
Next week is crash time. I have a final exam in Algebra, a final exam in Small Grp Communication (I think) and a final project due for Int.Programming for Internet (BChat..see link on right). I hope I can get everything wrapped up. I'm looking at the possiblity of All "A"s this time around. Well, As and Bs would be acceptable as well but I don't want any Cs, Ds or Fs. ;)After next week, it will be X-mas anyway. I need to try and find time to get some X-mas shopping done (yikes!). I may not get a
This blog contains thoughts and opinions that may do the following:-Provoke others in a mad rage-Provoke others to praise and gaze in awe-Give people a very small glimpse into my universe-Offer inspiration to those looking for some-Help me deal with stress by offering a way to unload thoughtsThis is the only blog I've ever been able to maintain so I'll keep posting, even if people don't read it anymore. I think I have an idea for another post. Maybe you'll find it more refreshing since it's been
So, I've allowed the bottle to get the best of me once again. I made a choice that I was not going to buy another beer tonight. I've simply had enough of it. Why am I destroying what I worked so hard to build? Why am I doing this to myself? I don't need the effects of alcohol any longer.From now on, I put my foot down and I put it down hard!
