My Girlfriend tried her hand at cooking today.

Not Kraft Dinner.

Real food. Incredible, I know. Guiness, and the CDC, wait on bated breath. It was pretty good actually. It had a kick to it.

The cooking process was….. interesting. Pleanty of things she didn’t know (e.g. Don’t throw the meat into the pan) and some things she did (e.g. washing vegetables is good!). I helped, a little more than I was supposed to, but I’m glad I did as it was a very stressful time for her.

We lived for those of you concerned… A few intestinal problems, but we’re still kicking.

Had my first Chem class, and I’m taking it with the Emperor’s Flower as it turns out so it’s not half bad… Except for this really Gorramn annoying kid who sits in front of us. He has thick glasses, talks in a weird voice, contridicts the teacher constantly, thinks he knows everything… and my lady says that he failed last year doing the same thing. She was actually very annoyed with him. You should see her. She’s looking for her Dad’s gun right now.

We shall call this man… Doctor Spanky.

Such as life I suppose…. I was called a know it all during my computers courses I suppose…. even given the nickname Wizard….. of course I did know pretty damn close to everything, so I had the crap to back it up. Hoorah.

Oh, and I won a Drumbstick (fancy frozen ice-cream cone) today because my Girlfriend, her sister, and another girl couldn’t push me into a wall. They whined, I gloated. Did a little MC Hammer dance too…. It was great. Like Mozzerella cheese is great.

Well that’s all I have to say for now. Not sure if updates will become more regular, but I’ll try… This was easier when I had a laptop…. Something I will consider for down the line.

I’m Still Here

September 4, 2007

I’ve just been busy… VERY busy. Let’s start from the beginning shall we?

Or at least what I’ve decided is the beginning. That’s right, this is my blog.

I lost my job. Yes, my fancy computer job. I was laid off and I now work for minimum wage at a fast food place nights and grave yards so I can go to school this September. Of course this is not so much fun, as I have to work pretty well full time so I can afford things I put myself into debt for… like my vehicle.

And many of you are saying now “Retard, why did you put yourself in debt?”. And I answer with, “Up yours,” followed by, “Because I wanted a vehicle that wasn’t going to fall apart on me, so I purchased a nice van my parents were going to give back at the end of the lease. And I did this, because my previous boss said my job wasn’t going to disappear, that I had nothing to worry about, and everything would be fine.”

A week later and I’m given my walking papers. I mean, I was nervous at first, but my boss gave no real indication that anything was going sideways, then one day after being at a clients at 5 in the bloody morning till about 12, he just hands me my papers and tells me to turn in… well everything.

I’m left with several issues, most of which can be summed up in the word bills. Unfortunately, working a minimum wage job or even above minimum wage, wasn’t going to be enough to cover bills and save any money. I wanted to move with my Girlfriend when she moved for school, so this wasn’t suitable… However, in a moment of sheer genius (Read: What the F*** was I thinking?) I realized that if I went back to school, I could stop payments on student loans, I would get 200 odd dollars from the government because of some stuff with my mom, and working a minimum wage job for 30 hours a week would give me enough to pay bills, plus some for saving… And I could get more education.

Bachelors of Science in Computation to be exact. Which would give me more than enough education to say, start my own business… Mighty Wings Designs might find wings after all.

Unfortunately, this has left me working like crazy, doing pretty much all grave yards, and neglecting… well a lot. I was doing a big website project for a friend that has had to take a back seat, which has been a hard thing for me as I gave the man my word. My Girlfriend hasn’t seen me in forever, and we’ve had practically no time together. I’m doing the job I have now, plus some for saving for school… and I’m just generally tired. I really am worn down. I’m having trouble functioning on most levels, and my knee is killing me… and I’m stressed…. Which doesn’t happen that often.

<insert sigh here>

But I suppose there is one bright side to all of this, other than the fact I’ve FINALLY made an update to my blog…

I’m Still Standing.

An Appology

September 4, 2007

I love you.

 You knew that, or I imagine you did. But lately, I realize, I’ve done a bad job showing it. So here I am expressing to you publicly, how truly sorry I am for that.

You’re going to be fine. I know this somehow. If you were going through the same things that you’re going through now last year, I wouldn’t know that. In fact I would doubt you would be okay. But you are stronger than you realize. But I realize it, and that counts for something.

I’m still here. I’m still someone to lean on, someone to snuggle up to, someone who will be there to cry to, we’re just going to have to get creative on the timing.

We will find time. Things have changed all at once for me and for you, and you’re right, we haven’t had time to adjust. But we will. I know this somehow.

You are the love of my life, and I promise you, I won’t jeopardize that.

You want unprepared? I haven’t even got paper, let alone a binder.

I love you. I’ll see you tomorrow morning.

Big Kiss.
