7:37 pm - *knock knock* Hi... just wondering if I'm still allowed here...
For those of you who cared, I'm not dead yet. For those of you who didn't, screw you! Heh heh. But honestly I'm doing quite well and I hear tell that some of you wonder if I haven't jumped off the face of the planet. Well, for the skinny I'm still in B'ham (give me a call or whatever, 671-6108) and am still in school at WCC and moving shortly to WWU. I have a new ride: a 2003 ford taurus, name pending (yes, I still name my cars), it's sort of a greenish gray. My comic is fast approaching the 50 comic mark... in fact i think it passed that quite a while ago... anyway it's on slight hiatus while I get my scanner fixed. But it's not like anyone on here read it anyway, so what does it matter? Still working as a furniture salesman at Griffith Furniture off Meridian. If you need anything for your pad, just let me know.

Welp, i'm off to do some comics, or keep playing Xenogears... or take a bath because I'm sick... whatever. *sighs* It feels good to be back on here.

current mood: amused

11:48 am - ......wow......
I don't even want to think about how long it's been since I've posted. Insanely long. Well, i guess some sort of update is in order. *Pulls out long list of things that need to be updated* (redundncy, anyone?)

Here's an update list in bullet form!

-I've got a job, it's selling furniture at Griffith Furniture on Meridian, come say hi sometime. I've been working there for about three months. It's been some good old-fashioned fun work experiance. I hate saying that.

-I'm done with my first year at WCC. It wasn't all it was cracked up to be, but I had fun, brought my gpa up considerably, and met new friends. Including my girlfriend. We've been going out for seven months now, and it's been nothing but wonderful.

-I was in a couple plays this year. A few one-acts in the fall, and then a musical just this past month or so. They were all awesome and the leader of the Drama Dept, Gerry, wants me to direct next fall. We'll see, but I think I'm going to.

-This summer I won't be going off to camp, sadly. I have to work all summer so that I can get a car in the fall. Yeah, my brother's driving now and he needs a vehicle, so the family Taurus (which I'm driving) is going to be his to drive, and I get to buy a new car. Well, I guess that's pretty cool.

-Hey, everyone check out my buddy Levi who just joined LJ. He's hard_roll and he's a pretty cool guy.

-My comic is still being updated and in the same place it's been for the bast few months, so check it out if you haven't yet.

Well, now that school's out, i think i'll be posting more regularly and responding to other's journals. I feel like such a heel for not being here recently, but it's been busy. Take care all, and maybe I'll see some of you around town, or whatever.

current mood: update-y

8:32 am - *Enter beat poem*
I don't want to do this work,
No way you can make me.
Pitiful to try and motivate
So lazyness won't take me.
If I indeed did this pape
It sadly would so break me.
And so I sit and contemplate
The computer to forsake me.
In school there's not much one can do
To nullify the fake me,
But still no stupid assignment
Will throw me, spin me, shake me.

Yay for odes to lame things... like schoolwork! Anyway, I'm supposed to be doing a paper right now, but it's quite lame and I don't want to be in school. I really REALLY am looking forward to next quarter for Writing for the Stage and Screen. It's gonna r0x0r |\/|4 b0x0rz!!1

And suddenly I slip into l33t... hmm... Maybe all that time 5p3|\|t with 0nL1|\|3 c0m1x has influenced my |\/|1n|) in ways I c4n|\|07 comprehend. well, enough of that then. I want 5l33p....

12:35 am - Frick
I don't think I'm cut out for school anymore. My heart isn't in it. My head most definitely isn't in it. Why they hell am I still in it? I've lied to teachers, I'm not doing work I need to be doing. With the grades I'm getting now I'm not going to be getting into Woodring anytime soon. Because of my complete lack of interst I am letting my grades faulter harshly. This is not helpful at all. I think I'll just take, like, a year off of school... No. Then how would I get back into it? I wouldn't want to. If I went off from school for a year, I'd end up finding a job that I could enjoy for long periods of time, come home and work on plays, stories and my comics, spend quality time with my friends, and actually have money (something i have none of right now). Let me just finish this quarter... then I'll be able to truly say wether I'm done or not.

Man, I sound bitchy all the sudden.

10:58 pm - Where's my head?
Well.... So i haven't been on here for a while. *brushes the cobwebs off of the livejournal* Better

Anyway, I've got some pretty cool news.... My comic strip is online!! Yeah! I finally got a scanner and have shoved my comics online. There's only a few up right now... and the webpage itself is kinda...lame, but that will change as soon as I re-teach myself html. Looking at about three pages of straight tag can be a little frightening after a few years of not doing anything in html. It's not like a bike that you can get on again. Ah well. Anyway, if you want to see it, it's here. Check it out... and vote for it, please... and tell you friends!

Oh, and I got a spiffy new optic mouse with five buttons and a gel pad on the surface where my palm rests. Thanks Jon.

Yeah, well... check out the comic, and take care all.

6:25 pm - That's Twice
Your wings are DRAGON wings. Massive and
covered in scales, they shimmer with strength
and magic. They are the most obvious display of
your power - though it runs equally throughout
your heart and mind. You are uncompromising and
grave, with a profound sense of justice. You
have firm ideas about what is right and what is
wrong and set out to fix what problems you can.
You realize that you are more capable of
dealing with life and evil than most, and as
such you see it as your responsibility to
protect those who cannot defend themselves. You
have existed since antiquity and as such you
are wise far beyond your years in this
lifetime. While you strive for fairness and
peace, if someone should steal from your cave
of treasure (though not all that glitters is
gold) or compromise the happiness of you or one
who is close to you - they have signed their
death warrant. You have a mighty vengeance and
will unleash it upon such people immediately
and mercilessly. Arguing with you is
useless...you rarely back down and are known
for holding firm in your beliefs. Sometimes you
feel intensely burdened with the troubles of
others...acting as a Guardian can get so
wearisome. But you never give up...you see it
as your life's mission. Often very introverted,
you can be so smart...it's scary. Such a
combination of intelligence, creativity, power,
beauty, and magic is often intimidating to
those around you - who are also unlikely to
understand you. Arrogant, proud, overserious,
and sometimes a bit greedy or obsessed with
whatever treasure you choose to pursue...you
have enchanted people for centuries, and will
continue to do so.

3:13 pm - W00t?
So I tried out for some student directed plays at WCU (that's "whatcom community university" for those of you not in the know) and got into one of them. But, sadly, that's not really saying much because there were barely enought guys who tried out, and so everyone who auditioned got a part. On a more annoying note, the one show I didn't want to get in, I was put in anyway, and so now I'm doing some part in The Seagull. I guess I should be happy that I'm going to be onstage again... but not in that play. Ah well. I guess I shouldn't be picky. I'll make the best of it.

current mood: um... yay?

3:06 pm - A Slip of the Wrist
Well, the goatee that I have been cultivating on my face since last April has got up and walked off. With one fell swoop, the beard/mustache trimmer I was utilizing on sunday night dug a little to deeply and too greedily into the goat and now all that is left is bare chin. Man. I feel like I'm 17 again. That's scarey because I still look like it. I'm still trying to figure out whether that's a good thing or a bad thing, so I think I'm going to assume that looking three years younger than I actually am is a bad thing. It's not going to stay gone, though.... Although it may be resurrected in another form... I'm not sure yet.

Hey, if anyone knows of any sort of publishing company that would want to print an oddity-of-a comic strip about college life, or any way i could possibly get some plays published, let me know with all speed. Please and thank you.

10:20 am - Back to normal.... in a manner of speaking
Well, everything seems to be back to normal now.

My home internet is back up and working perfectly again. The phone is now completely hooked up complete with voice messenging and call waiting. The cable's all good. The only thing that sucks about the new house is the lame water pressure and how cold my room gets. It gets biting cold down there, and I don't get it. The gas fireplace helps a little, but it's mostly for just a quick fix. Heh, "quick fix". It takes a good five or so minutes to warm up the area around the hearth, let alone the rest of the room. But I'm not complaining. My own apartment complete with bath, bed, entertainment, workstation, phone, intercom system, and fireplace is nothing to get depressed or bitchy over. I'm quite happy with the whole set-up.

So I just spent about, oh i dunno, two hours last night catching up on everything that has happened on LJ durning my elongiated abscence. How troublesome to miss out on so much. Anyway, school calls and away I must to choir.


*invisions Will Homel at tryouts for "Lend Me A Tenor"* Kai-oh!

Finished moving about a day before Christmas... got our phone line and cable up and running a week after that (a good week later than they said they would get it working) House is cool, i've got my own fireplace.

Internet and email from home is NOT working (sonuvabitch qwest), so if you need to ge3t a hold of me call or tell me on here. I can check this at least from school.

playing in the snow has been fun.... uh... pointless post.... need to go...

11:52 pm - Just 'Cuz: do I need a reason?
First of all I'd like to say a warm welcome to Kelli to the world of LiveJournal: Welcome and good luck *snickers maniacaly*

Secondly: random LJ-ness

I wrote a song in the shower this morning. It's about gamers and being L33t and not really playing games at all... I guess you would have to hear it for it to make sense, and seeing as though you can't post soundbytes, you all are going to have to take my word for it: it's pretty comical.

Anyway, tonight was fun (fun silly-willy, narf! [wow.... i haven't said that since they took Pinky and the Brain of the air... spooky]). The concert at BHS was tight. I got to see Angie, Cheryl (sp?), Barb, Krista, Mike, Aaron (like i don't see him on a regular basis anyway) and a bunch of other BHS regs. The Halelujah chorus rocked, as it always does, but it was kinda sad that it didn't involve Rob Majors... that element, the ground shattering bass element, was missing. Still in all, the night was fantabulistical.

We start moving soon. Within the next couple days we're going to start carting boxes and stuff over to the new house. Pretty much all of next week is going to be trasporting goods and setting up rooms. Hopefully in all the bustle we'll get a tree up, but we'll have to see *crosses fingers* Welp, A Bridge Too Far calls (kick-ass WWII movie with a bunch of huge actors, ie: Sean Connary, Robert Redford, Anthony Hokins, Gene Hackman, Lawrence Olivier) and i must answer it's call, even though it's quite late to be starting a movie. Ah well. G'night all.

1:17 am - Woa, woa woa woa, for the longest time...
Well, for the first time in a very long time I was able to have a fun night with people my own age. I had no idea how much I missed dorm life with people close to my own age until Dan, Nick, Amber, Aaron and I (for those of you who know, that would be Yserman, Chef Boy RD, Humu Humu, and Vespuchi) got together over at Western's dorms and hung out with a bunch of Amber's college buddies. The conversations, the level of humor, the good vibes, the jokes, the card games... You don't get that with cheeky little high schoolers in Running Start and crazy middle-aged men at the community college. Not saying that those people aren't cool, or great to hang with... I think I just needed some solid, tewnty-something college students just coming off of finals from the quarter and ready to let their hair down in a great non-drunk way. Hanging with drug-free people is fun. Example: lots of laughts and no hangover/crash. Anyway, off the the sack I go. Tomorrow I spend in Lynden.

1:43 am - I'm moving. It's official. Christmas in a new house.
Into the room strode a man no older than twenty. Sunken, blood-shot eyes told the all-too-real tale that the weight of reality had sat so heavily on such young shoulders. Hands in pockets (a needed security), the young man shuffled to the center of the vacent space and passed his eyes over the bare walls. Each crack he knew. Each nuance in the paint on the walls, each tear in the ragged carpet, every ding or scrape any piece of furniture had made he knew as though it were himself plastered agains the boards. He breathed in the smell of uncovered dust and cardboard boxes and breathed out again, a slow, paced exhale. Taking a step from his comfort zone in the middle of the room, the man ran his hand along one of the walls, one of his walls. He blinked and brought his hand slowly back to his pocket. They weren't his walls anymore. The carpet he was standing on would be replaced, the scratches and imperfections would be polished up and filled it, and then repainted. He shook his head. "No fair. Not fucking fair!" he muttered and set his knuckles agains the wall, not wanting to all-out punch his former room. Turning, he rested his back against the wall and allowed himself to slide down until he was seated on the grayed flooring. "Just when you think you're moved in. Just when you think it's home.... Time to leave again." He spoke to the walls as if there were ears to hear, friends to listen. The man set his head back against the wall and eyed the popcorn ceiling. "Guess I'm just too damn nastalgic," he said, using the wall to right himself again. Leaving the room, the young man couldn't help but mentally place all the furniture back in the room, all the good times, all the hard times. He saw the furtiture as feelings, events, not as things for comfort. What they were to people spoke more than what they looked like or how coushy they were. The rocker in the corner: the site of many a bedtime story read by Dad. The couch: make-out times, each one special, each one individual. The bed: beautiful dreams, heart-shattering nightmares, lazy Saturday mornings, rushed Sundays. The desk: caulinder of ideas, strainer of thoughts, site of the collapse of worlds, the birth of love, scientific breakthroughs, heartfelt dictations.

Alone, he stood in the doorway. Yet not so much alone in spirit. There was, for a short second, a flicker of something like a smile tugging at the corner of his lips. He turned, flicked out the light, and shut the door.

What Type of Melee Weapon Are You?
brought to you by Quizilla

I should be...

writing my archaeology summaries.
writing my critical analysis essay.
writing two critical thinking question essays.
writing my intellectual autobiography.
replying to an email.
finding a fourth class for next quarter.
finding a new job.
drawing more comics for my hungry readers.

I should not be...

planning a second invasion of Europe.
surfing pointlessly online.
taking stupid online quizzes.
worrying about my LJ icons and how many I have, but how little I like.
drinking Monster energy drinks (that was earlier today).
feeling all sickly.

So, in other words: I should be productive and I shouldn't be unproductive. Easier said than done, my friend.

It's late, i'm tired. Yet, as always, no sleep will come, because I'm too lazy to take the effort to get into bed. If I did, I'd sleep fine. As long as I'm out of my bed I stay awake. It's like an on/off switch. I need to hit the off more often. That might work better. Then I wouldn't need to drink Monster and wouldn't be wide-eyed hyper in my archaeology class. Although it was fun asking my friend sitting next to me how wide my eyes were. They were quite big, just to let you know. Choir concert went well. I felt like I was going to faint literally one minute into the show. I don't know why. Anyway, we didn't suck, which is good. Maybe I'm still awake because of the Blizzard I had tonight... naw, that was around 9. That was four hours ago. That would've worn off already.

Well... homework calls... or is that the bed... I can't tell anymore.
