I'm making final

I'm making final preparations for this freelancing thing. Last night a computer genius friend of mine stopped by to help me order a computer. I had about $2000 budgeted for the computer, and he had a good plan to use every penny of that. It would have been...

Last night I

Last night I bought Gremlins and Poltergeist on DVD. I haven't seen either of them in probably 10 years. I was watching them last night, and it's bizarre the things I remember. I remember little stupid things that have no relation to the plot at all. For...

One of the best weekends ever.

Yeah, this weekend was good, despite a tragedy with my best friend. So, it was Friday night, and the plan was to meet at our apartment, then go to the New China Buffet and a 7:00 American Pie 2. Me, Steph, and Fabish were there, waiting for Molly, and...

Last night I

Last night I went to my parent's house to eat some tacos. They were good. Then I went to Best Buy. I bought Event Horizon. Then I went home. Then I watched Event Horizon. Later Fabish and KJ stopped by. Later, Molly and Steph stopped by. I finished...

My nights keep

My nights keep getting more and more boring. Here's something interesting though. Since I will soon be freelance, I've been checking up on a few sites pretty much every day to see what kind of work I'll be able to find. I ran across one ad that was asking...

Last night I

Last night I watched Saving Silverman. It was way, way different than I thought it was going to be. I was expecting an intelligent comedy, but this was corn ball and cheesy. It still had it's funny moments though. That Peet girl (Amanda, is it?) sure is...

Saw Rush Hour

Saw Rush Hour 2 last night with Steph and Molly. It was quite enjoyable... better than the first. Still, Project A was Jackie Chan's best work. I also tried to do another "Steal my Shit" cam for [hidethecam.com][1], but that didn't turn out nearly as well...

The Weekend

The weekend was alright. On Friday I skipped work, and did basically nothing all day. It was great. Brian Kelly, Steph, and Molly stopped by later in the evening and we hung out and chatted. Some of Alan's friends who I hate stopped by too. I went to bed...

Ah last night.

Ah, last night. I got home and had a message to go to Angie's for a cookout. I decided I would go, as long as Steph was going too. So I called her up, and she met me at my place and we went to Angie's. Mullens and Fuller were also there, so that's 3...

Not much to

Not much to say today. I wrote a bunch of checks last night. My credit cards are paid off now, and all my bills for the apartment are paid. That's a good feeling. KJ stopped by for a little while. You know what I love? I love it when a friend of a friend...

I forgot a few things.

In my overly detailed account, I forgot to add a few things. First of all, yesterday Mullens kept trying to call me. He always calls me from work, and we always get interrupted about 25 seconds into each phone call so he can help a customer. He'll call me...

A horribly detailed account of the last few days.

I'm going to pick things up on Saturday, since I didn't get into it last time. So, I had plans with Steph to go out to a nice dinner and to see Planet of the Apes. I got the phone call from my dad telling me my grandma had just died, so I called up Steph...

Not much to

Not much to say today. I'm busy at work until noon, then it's off to my grandma's visitation. I just wanted to apologize for the comments left unanswered. We all know LJ's been screwy lately, and now on top of that, my work email isn't accepting outside...

So I ended

So, I ended up going to my grandma's yesterday after learning about her death. I got a ride with my sister and Robert, and we just talked to my uncle, mom, and grandpa. We went out to dinner at the nicest restaurant in Woodhull, which isn't very nice at...

The phone call.

I just got the call from my dad. My grandma died at around 3:30 this afternoon. I've gone down to visit her every weekend the past month or two, every time knowing that it would probably be the last time I ever saw her alive. This doesn't come as a shock...

While at work

While at work yesterday, I got an email from my dad asking if I could go out to their place and eat dinner with them. I went straight there from work and had a good, home cooked dinner and discussed plans for my new career. I went home and worked on my...

I know I

I know I have a month to go at this shitty job, but I'm already feeling about 200 times better. A big weight has been lifted off my back. I realize the freelancing thing isn't at all responsible and it will be a lot of hard work, and I realize I'm going to...

Ever since I

Ever since I decided on this freelance thing, I've had many encounters with many naysayers. A lot of people tell me things like "You'rs going to have to stop that DVD buying habit" and "it's going to be REALLY tough" and "Good luck... you'll need it". I...

I just quit

I just quit my fucking job. Go me. Yes, you heard right. I've been talkin' all big and bad about just up and quitting for quite some time now, but today I actually did it. I just got back from the second round of my evaluation. This time it was mainly me...

What a lame

What a lame weekend I had. Friday I was supposed to go bowling with Steph and Molly, then to see Jurassic Park 3. Plans were changed blah blah blah, so we ended up doing nothing, and I went to bed early. Saturday, since plans had been changed, we were...
