Stuff from August 2007.

Let Me In
Saturday August 04, 2007

I practically have the opinions of everyone who really matters to me now. When I think about it, I feel like such an idiot. It made me realize just how used I feel, and just so damn alone. Across the board, everyone seems to come to the same result. They’ve all said the same things over and over. I’m just too thick-headed to let it in. I blind myself with stupid emotions and can’t see what’s really happening.

But not anymore.

I know what I have to do. I know that it needs to be done.

I will fall into the darkness,
and I fear I will never see the light.

I’m still completely afraid though.

Secret
Monday August 13, 2007

It made me cry.

PostSecret may very well be one of the most important projects ever created. I know that it’s incredibly important to me. I find myself caught up in every single postcard. The love, hate, hopes, and dreams.

I read each card and I see myself in them.

Looking Ahead
Wednesday August 15, 2007

So it seems that I got the job at Wal-Mart. My goodness, they took forever to call back and confirm. It kept bothering me. I have orientation all next week, and I’m wondering why such a lengthy orientation is needed. Then again, I should have expected it after the lengthy interview process. It’s just Wal-Mart!

Things in other departments seem good. They aren’t at the point that I want them to be, but that’s completely unfair for me to expect such a dramatic change in such a short amount of time. Things are about to drastically change, and I just don’t know how I’m going to cope with it. I suppose we’ll find out.

I’ve been researching cars, and I have my mind set on a brand new 2008 Scion xB. The car is pure sex. Spacious, sleek, packed with features, and cheap. I absolutely love riding in the car, and everything else about it. Of course, first I need my license…

I’ve scheduled my driving test for next next Wednesday. I hope the test isn’t hard. I suppose I should spend the next week or two practicing as much as possible. I do need to learn how to parallel park though.

Been playing Mario Strikers Charged, which is loads of fun. Although it doesn’t feel as chaotic as the GameCube version. I’m still having fun though, so it doesn’t matter much. Also got Resident Evil 4 Wii edition, which is pretty darn awesome. I get to play my favorite game of all time, all over again.

Anyway, a lot is happening and much more is about to happen. I’m looking ahead to what’s possible. It’s time to stop coasting.

Work
Wednesday August 29, 2007

Work has been incredibly taxing. Running around the parking lot all day, doing odd jobs, and lots of cart pushing. I’m sunburned, my feet and hands hurt, and I’m really tired at the end of the day. The core job itself: so not fun.

But I’m getting paid good money. So, I guess I really don’t care. The atmosphere is really great, and so are the people. My fellow co-workers are tons of fun, and make every minute bearable. I’m getting exercise too. I hope that I build up some guns before I transfer to another department. What I wouldn’t give to not only be stronger, but look stronger. I’ve been trying to eat healthier too. I grab salads from Star Market and eat that for most of my meals.

War was total crap. The Greek Festival was good, but expensive. I couldn’t bear to stand in all those long lines though, so I didn’t get to enjoy all the wonderful Greek food that was around.

Bought Metroid Prime 3 today. So far, its been absolutely awesome. The controls are a dream (at least when it comes to console-based shooters). As every Wii game, it takes a little getting used to, but so worth it. GameStop called later on and told me that Guild Wars would be ready for pick up tomorrow afternoon… but I don’t have money to spend… so I’m just going to grab it with my next paycheck (along with lots of other things).

My YP-K3 broke. I have to get Samsung to repair it. Its only a few months old, and generally I don’t have problems with Samsung products. Plus, I love the little player. I’ll either get the current one repaired, or buy another one later on. Not having my music with me really sucks.

Things are looking up.

There is someone I really miss though.

I guess I can’t have everything. I guess… back to Metroid Prime 3.
