Been another long hiatus guys, sorry about that. Been losing motivation to post my work on here. *sighs tiredly* What I wouldn't do for a nice trip to a huge arse library to peruse of its inventory. *Shrugs* Can't have everything. Especially since my grandfather who had brought me into the gaming world has stage three lung cancer, so things have been getting especially tough. Including the fact that my mom lost her job because they closed down the store she worked in.
A lot has happened since my last journal and very little of it is for the better.
Hey, at least I know I might finally graduate from Taco-tec this year with two majors and my general, but the fact of not being able to get a job just burns my hide.
On the note of my stories and characters, they've decided to up and go about their own business and leave me in the dark scrambling for clues as to their pasts, futures, present, etc. It's absolutely terrible right now. I haven't even wrote a full page worth of a story at all! What I wouldn't do for a day of peace with my mate and be able to write without a problem. *Holds up Writer's block*
Mostly this damned thing is the problem, that and having to deal with my own family that likes to ride my arse all over the place with their complaints.
Least I had fun on my five day Airsoft trip to SC Village and Hollywood Sports arenas. I got a riot shield I named Citadel/Sentinal and a Derringer pistol nicknamed after Teddy Roosevelt. Had tons of fun getting people mad because they can't get my behind the shield, making people laugh at how small my derringer was, and running around like mad.
After the airsoft we went to see Night at the Museum Three, it will bring tears to even the manliest of men. *Hats off to Robin Williams* Ran over to Barnes & Noble for a large book purchase; mostly how-to books and a few warhammer 40k ones. Then to the most awesome restaurant by far: Bj's Brewhouse. I had the ultimate rack of ribs there and would do anything to have another set, even if the price is a little steep, but understandable.
Came back home and had to clean my room all over again and fight to get the classes I need for this Spring semester. Geez, I just want school to start already just to keep me busy and away from my parents. F*ck, I wish I lived in my own apartment by now and had a nice steady job, but it's not going to land in my lap like a damned leaf from a tree. I need to finish up my schooling and find a job while I'm at it. Also, need to learn to be self sustaining, kinda.
So, my new years resolutions are:
Lose about 20lbs, so that I may feel healthier and more comfortable with myself.
Finish taco-tech and graduate. Twice.
FIND A JOB FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!
Finish a story or start the history periodical piece about a son writing from Vietnam to his parents in the States.:bademoticon:
Become able to support myself (not meaning a job), meaning cooking, cleaning, etc.
Learn to be a much more confident driver.
