i used to like it a lot. i've been doing it before i knew of any organized sites, back around 1999. sure, i've had my breaks, but this time i came back and i just don't feel the same. i used to find writing an enjoyable way to release stress and improve my writing skills. i used to like writing poetry as a creative outlet.
now i think the internet is kind of an enormous waste of my time.
if you feel that i'm a person worth keeping in touch with, i will be happy to talk to you on aim.

bad news: jim quit. for those of you who don't know, i work at george's music in springfield. i sell guitars. jim (up until tonight) sold guitars there as well. the management pretty much accused him of stealing $900, which he denied. they then said his attendance was too bad and they would have to let him go, but he quit anyway.
that doesn't sound so bad, does it? what you don't know is that our entire store consists of 6 employees. on any given day, at least 3 (sometimes 5) of those employees will be working. losing one of them REALLY fucks things up, especially since it's december.
to summarize, i'll see you guys in january. hopefully.

a night to remember... if only i could
last night after work i went out to the five spot in olde city with josh (my roommate) and ken (his friend) to see a live funk band that was supposed to be pretty good. well when we arrived, the band wasn't up for 45 minutes and we didn't feel like waiting. we went over to foggy goggles because they knew a shot girl who could hook us up. this is where it gets ugly. free drinks in a nice club. i'm glad i only brought $27, because now i don't have any money.
i ended up on the sidewalk of market street, drunk as fuck, throwing up. cops came up to me and were like, "are you alright?"
i was like "no... but my ride is coming to get me."
luckily, marcus came and picked me up, because i didn't have money and, in my drunken state, couldn't find an atm for a taxi to save my life (and i wasn't about to walk home from olde city). so here i am, still alive (although this hangover might feel better if i weren't).
since things took a surprising turn towards a more serious note, jen and i sat down and talked a bit last night. i've pretty much been in the dark about her feelings about me pretty much ever since i became curious as to what they were. for those of you who have no idea who jen is, here we go:
earlier this year, i was really bored and messaged a bunch of people on myspace. jen happened to be one of them. of the numerous people i began talking to from myspace, she was probably the only person i found interesting enough to continue talking to.
we kept talking online for a while and finally agreed one night to meet at the first unitarian church for the savath and savalas show (neither of us had heard them before, but i heard they were supposed to be incredible). i thought it was a great show and we had a good time talking about things and getting to know eachother face to face.
as time went on, we hung out more and more. we both love movies, music, late-night taco bell... we've been having fun together ever since. of course i got a crush on her and told her all about my feelings, but she left me with the impression that she just didn't (and wouldn't) feel the same way in return. that was ok with me. "just friends" is perfectly fine with me.
more recently, jen had the opportunity to move out of her apartment because her roommate was a mega-bitch, and asked if she could stay here until she was able to move into her new apartment (late-september). of course i said yes. for a friend i really care about, having an occupied couch every night is the least of my concerns.
i've actually really liked coming home and having someone (who isn't my fucking crazy roommates) that i can sit down and talk to, and maybe watch a movie or go to dinner. i've enjoyed the company and i know i'll miss her being around all the time when she moves.
anyway, last week i kind of got the idea that she might possibly be interested in something more than "just friends", so i asked her about it. finally we got to talking about how we really feel. it was definitely a huge relief afterwards to not feel completely in the dark about it. she actually wrote me a nearly-4-page note while she was in class, explaining to me what she was thinking. i thought that was really adorable.
it sounds like a big factor in all of this is that neither of us want to mess up our friendship. it is a great feeling to know that someone cares enough to not want to mess something up that is already awesome.
it also sounds like she's really scared of getting hurt, which i can completely understand. i think she is still very wary because she doesn't want to get cheated on ever again (which i can definitely relate to). cheating sucks bigtime.
right now, i have no idea where this is all headed. but wherever it's headed, i'm sure it will be in a good direction :)
in other news:
-pete is having a mega-party down the street on saturday night. i am definitely looking forward to it, but jen won't be there because she is going back to s-burg :( boo
-mikey is moving out of will's apartment nextdoor either sunday or monday. the 500 block of N 31 St is going to miss him a shitload :(
-jen and i are moving to will's apartment nextdoor either sunday or monday. the rent is more, but i will have my own room again, and i will have a lot more room to set up my studio. plus, i'll be able to stay near mike and marcus (and jen once she moves).
-i want a dog and i still really miss midnight :(
-my friends need to hang out with me on my days off (sunday and monday). what the hell is up with you guys making plans with me and then cancelling them last-minute? also, what's up with all you guys going to hooters and not even inviting me? thanks for nothing.

"I have never lived in times of a full-blown war. My generation has been deprived of war's natural selection. I am not a proponent of violence, but a religious war is exactly what the world needs. Not through the draft. By choice. Any fool willing to take arms against another religious zealot for differences of opinion should die. They both deserve their fate, and the world will be a better place. Let the fanatics provoke Middle Eastern intervention. Let the gun-toting cretins join the United States military so that I will live in a brighter nation in their absence. Let their folly reveal their ignorance in future history books. Let war wipe out the ignorant that choose to partake of its futile cause. Let their lives be spent on cheaper prices at the gas pump. Thin the herd."
