For What Its Worth
Saturday September 15, 2007

Since work began, I guess a lot has been happening. Life has been far more hectic. Early mornings and late nights. I so would have quit if I didn’t like my co-workers so much. They make every minute worth it, and that’s pretty awesome. Upper management can be a bitch once in a while though. They like to act as if they understand what’s going on, and pretend to be all buddy buddy, but really, they have no idea.

I’ve been looking into a new camera. I think I’;ve decided on the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80. It’s gotten pretty great reviews and doesn’t break the bank. I should be able to get a good discount too if I buy it at Wal-Mart. Too bad Sony doesn’t like the SD card format. That’s my only real issue with the camera. I hate Sony Memory Sticks. Also, I hate the name Cyber-shot. It’s such a horrible name for a camera. It’s like Sony didn’t even try to think up something. Then again, I guess Sony doesn’t really ever put much thought into product names.

I re-subscribed to Asheron’s Call. I haven’t played it for some time, and it still reigns as one of my most favorite games of all time. I can’t wait to jump back in. I bought Beatmania and DDR Extreme 2 for the PS2. Beatmania just shipped out today, but it’s not scheduled to arrive until the 18th - I paid for 2 day shipping and ordered the game on Wednesday. It’s taking too long to get to me. I bought a new pouch for my Nintendo DS Lite. I’ve wanted this one for a really long time, but just never got around to getting it. Oddly enough, it’s cheaper online than in-store. I should have bought it online instead.

Samsung finally finished repairing my MP3 player, and it’s supposed to be on it’s way to me. It’s taken a very long time and I’m kinda disappointed in their service. The website doesn’t provide any information as to how my repair is coming along, and the entire process has taken much too long. Though I did get a courtesy call the other morning. A lady called to check if my MP3 player was okay, but I told her that it hadn’t come in yet. She said to give them a call if I had any questions. I liked that. Too bad her timing was horribly off. You’d think they would know when stuff they shipped has reached it’s destination.

Anyway. I’ve spent much money recently, made new friends, been having lots of fun, and really just getting things into order. Some aspects of my life still aren’t where I want them to be, but a lot of stuff has improved. I’m happy - for now.

I’m looking into a reliable hosting service. I loved working with Network Redux, and I think I just might go with them. Next paycheck.

If there’s one thing I’m really good at, it’s fucking things up. I don’t know why, but shit just happens around me, all the time, and I’m either the cause or part of the problem. It really discourages me from being more social, and tends to fuck up my day. I’m a damn extrovert, yet I’d rather be inside playing games or browsing the internet. I don’t know anymore. Who am I supposed to be?

For every time that I’ve done that, I wish I had known what the consequences would’ve been, or asked what they would’ve been. This time around, I knew I should have asked, but I didn’t. I did what I wanted because it made me happy, and I assumed it would make everyone else happy too. I really wish that I hadn’t done anything. We’d be good, and everything would have stayed the same. Maybe things would’ve taken longer, but at least I’d still have the chance. Now my decision has eradicated that chance, and I’m stuck back at the beginning - somewhere I would rather not be at - all alone.

I need to just… get out of here.

I think we’re good. My indication just came really late.

Anyway, I got my camera. I ended up getting the DSC-W80 instead of the 90. I mean, when will I ever use more than 7 mega pixels? That’s all the upgraded model was for really. So I opted for the cheaper route and saved me some money. Also scored a free Memory Stick, which isn’t a bad deal. I picked up a pretty case for my camera (for $40). Beatmania came in, and I really suck at it, but I’m enjoying the game a lot. My MP3 player came in too (finally), too bad they just sent me the same one I had back, only working. I wanted a brand new replacement or something. The repair facility even installed the wrong firmware, so I had to re-install the correct firmware.

I picked up my Brand New tickets, and I’m really excited to go out with the guys and see the show. Plus, I get to use my new camera and go crazy. I can’t wait! This’ll be a good chance to get out and away from stuff. Just have some mindless fun with some great background music. God, I just hope I don’t get bled on like at The Ataris concert.

One of my co-workers quit a few days ago. I’m actually quite sad because of it. He was a really cool guy, and I enjoyed working with him. I guess I’ll still see him around Town Center, but I’m still disappointed that things just won’t be the same. I was wondering where he went, because he hadn’t come to work for a while, but now it’s all clear. I told him to come back, and move into another department. I don’t know… I hope he comes back. I spent the afternoon with him and his girlfriend today. It was nice, just talking and making fun of each other. I’m gonna miss it. Bye Nick… it was a pleasure working with you.

I didn’t get much sleep last night, but I got through today just fine. What had happened kept me happy throughout the day, though as it progressed, I became more and more worried. I was waiting for something… anything. I was hoping for the norm, and I didn’t get any indication of that at all. Again, I’m at a loss and I just don’t know what I should do. It’s over… again.
