Hey livejournal! How are you? Journalish? I doubt it, cuz that's not even a word!

Updating late is better than updating never right? So here we are, a few weeks into summer vacation, which started May 18th and extends all the way to grad school next year. Pretty solid if you ask me. And as you can tell from when this is being posted, I don't have a job and my sleep schedule is all f-ed up. I see light outside. And as for the job, I have two offers and hopefully a third coming in. If that comes in, Hudson Valley Hospital it is for me. If not, somewhere in Yonkers. Can you tell where I'd rather be?

So I'm watching Kramer vs. Kramer today in the midst of not working and (spoiler alert!!!!) Meryl Streep wins after abandoning her kid for 18 months. And apparently this happens a lot: the courts will side with the mothers simply because. Wow, that's bullshit. I mean yes, I'm nowhere close to being a feminist . Sure, it calls for equality between the sexes, but calling it feminism just makes it sound women > men. I'm 100% for equality in all things though, not just gender. I lost my point. There it is! If the husband bails then wants back in, fuck the asshole. But if the wife bails, same shit. And if the courts are siding with the mother in any situation, way to play it fair guys. I mean yea, if the conditions are shit or there's tons of neglect or the kids is getting beaten, by all means side with the other party, but it actively bothers me that shit like that could go down to anyone. And if you're sitting there thinking "Well Jack, maybe you just like Dustin Hoffman more than Meryl Streep" all I have to say is she was great in the Devil Wears Prada (even though the movie shouldn't be in the custody of anyone. That's right, tying it all back).

I like listening to music I haven't heard in a long time. It brings back lots of memories and feelings and so forth. Currently it's Strung Out, fyi.

I got a Wii. It's fun.

Cleaning my room is taking a lot longer than expected, mostly due to a lack of motivation and there being enough stuff off of the floor that no one is complaining.

I don't like it when dvds skip. I miss certain parts and it's like the movie is keeping secrets from me.

I like this song, so peace Holmes.

Hi there, little neurotic-looking baby.

Know what I remembered? I love livejournal. There was a reason why I made everyone get one back senior year of high school. And then I, you know, didn't post for months. It happens. We persevere.

There's just so much to talk about that I don't know where to begin. I'm at Kristin's house and yes, it's 4:45 in the morning. Sleep is for losers and people who have work the next day and I am neither. I guess it can be for people who are tired and want to be well rested for the next day too, but I only say that because Kristin will be seeing this when she wakes up. She's probably reading this right now. I'm probably right next to her while she's reading this. Hi Kristin! But anyway, I've been up to a lot. Like turning 22 and graduating college. I'm sure I'll have a whole "reflecting on college" entry later on. Stand by.

Another order of business was getting a new ipod, which was heavily (read: entirely) assisted by Kristin and my parents. Thumbs up for that. Thumbs down for the scroll wheel being less than sensitive and thus difficult in letting me listen to All That Remains whenever I feel like it. But hey, at least it's all good when I listen to music in the car. OH WAIT NO. The cord in there is messed up too, so it really only play out of one speaker. Hm, this was more bitching than I intended, so....

Boston is great. Or at least the two songs I recognized and listened to tonight. Death Cab For Cutie is really good too. As well as a bunch of other stuff I've been getting into now. So there, less complaints.

I miss high school and I realized that I miss it for one reason: everyone was around. Here, let's play *Where's everyone at? (high school friends edition): Colin: city, Gerry: city, Ungco: Boston, Eric: city Feds: Albany, Emma: city, Jon: around (good, you'll be called), Sam: Westchester (also good). Who else did we hang out with? I dunno, a lot of people, many of whom no one talks too anymore. See, back in the day (at 22 I can reference "the day") it was all skate and drive around and see people. Now it's all "Oh, not many people within 30 miles I see". Anywhere further than 30 miles from where I am can suck it and suck it hard. Let's even go outside of high school and into college. There are some people in the vacinity and that's nice, but then the girlfriend (you've been referred to by name enough McCarthy!) is in Rochester and other friends are in Long Island. Have we really packed 8 people into a 5 person car for the last time? But you strive and persevere and see who you can and take out your frustrations on people that annoy you and you're set. Basically, my point is that everyone I know should move to Pleasantville. Is that really too much to ask?

I'm starving, but this isn't my house so I can't just rummage through other people's fridge for food. Until next time (assuming I don't forget again, which I promise I'll try not to this time).

This could be the most one sided fight since 1973 when Ali faced an 80-foot tall mechanical Joe Frazier. My memory isn't what it used to be, but I think the entire Earth was destroyed.

As much as I'd hate to use this as an actual journal, I'm angry and upset and feeling pretty hopeless. I don't know if hopeless is the right word though. Not me. I'm not hopeless. I just don't think anything is gonna be alright. I don't think I'm ok.

How is it already the end of the semester? Seriously. The past 3 1/2 months flew by, which only means next semester will do the same thing and then I'll be in the real world. Forced to fend for myself. Or run to Mommy and Daddy. Either one.

Five finals this week. Three on Tuesday and two on Thursday. Plus I picked up mad hours at work because a) I need gambling money for Vegas and b) I owe my parents a lot of money. So that's basically my week. Maybe a movie. Actually, definitely a movie. Saying maybe is just ridiculous.

Speaking of finals, I might be relatively screwed for some of them. Depends on how much studying I end up getting done. Thank god I made notecards a week ago. People came down from Cortland and Oswego for the last Teen Wolf show, so my studying didn't start until last night at 7. Oh, but want to make a girl almost cry? Tell her that the guy she just had a one night stand with was a virgin. Jeremy's not, but wow that was a funny half hour. Also, Tawm is being shunned for having too much game for his own good.

Hm, I see that you deleted that entry with the convo with you and your back-up boyfriend. Yes, I saw it. No, I wasn't thrilled by it.

There are a lot of songs that I've recently come to like for one reason or another that I hated when they came out. Like Enema of the State Blink 182 and Fat Lip. I wonder what I'll like in 5 years.

Last freaking opening tomorrow. Hells yea. And that's ever too. Next semester I work Monday, Wednesday, and Friday afternoon/evenings. No opening. No closing. That'd be called being a veteran.

The more stress that gets thrown at me, the more I want to go back to being reclusive and do nothing but work out and watch movies. It'd be great to have that focus back again.

Yes, I have decided to shun Andy Bernard for the next three years... which I'm looking forward to. It's an Amish technique; it's like slapping someone with silence. I was shunned from the age of 4 until my 6th birthday, for not saving the excess oil from a can of tuna.

I've realized that I can't think of the last time I got 8 hours of sleep. Definitely more than a week ago, which is probably why I'm out of it right now.

There was a large amount of driving done yesterday and today. Binghamton to Pleasantville, then Pleasantville to Smithtown, LI, then back to Pleasantville today. Smithtown was cool. I got offered to stay overnight and for Thanksgiving a few times, which was unexpected. Um, Derick got kicked out of a bar for breaking a bottle outside, then Shaka almost got in a fight with the bouncer who kicked him out. Kelly randomly went missing at around 2, which brought the Russ parents down to the bar (Kelly is Derick's younger sister). She ended up being with her drug dealing boyfriend at a Jiffylube somewhere. It all sounds less eventful than it was, but apparently they're doing a scavenger hunt tomorrow and then going out, so I'll be back down there for that. Oh, and I said I'd be home at before 2:30, but got there at 2:45. Oops. I'll be talked to later.

Haha, my dad asked if I wanted to watch the Godfather tomorrow. He wasn't thrilled when I told him that it's in Binghamton.

Two weeks and then finals is all that's left of this semester. Wow.

Saw 4 and 30 Days of Night aren't playing anywhere anymore.

If sweet stories could buy pasta, you'd be very fat by now

So with my Learning test over with, I can update on the HUGE weekend.

Aight, so at like 5 on Friday I get a call from Shaka asking if I would want to bounce at the Moose that night since they needed people. I said maybe and he said he'd call back. I go to my 5:30 shift and get progressively more into the idea as I find out who's going out that night. Then at about 8:30 Shaka tells me the owner found someone. Lame. So i get off work at 10 and go home, only for Shaka to call again and say, and I quote, "If I call you back in 5 minutes can you be here in 10?" So I run over there and bounce (ie do wristbands for open bar) until 1, at which point i go downstair to be Bar Back (clean up behind the bar). The owner said I did better than anyone in a year and I made $50 from being tipped off, along with the other $50 I made at $8/hour. It was a good night. Left at 5, got Wendys, crashed at 6:30. And then...

Woke up at 10 to drive to Syracuse with Shaka to pick up Derick and Laura. Blew off the planned nap to hang out and get food and watch the Teen Wolf sound check, then people pre-gamed, the we went to the Rat at 9 for beer pong. Derick was drinking for me, which increased his intoxication immensely. He also decided that he was going to get into a fight, so him and Tawm were starting with EVERYONE. We eventually bailed to the Moose (but not before Tawm and Derick started up with people at Big Daddy's). Oh, we also decided that we were gonna beat up Colin Farrell when we go to LA. And Derick hit Shaka in the nuts twice, one funnier than the next. Teen Wolf was sweet also.

The next day I actually got sleep, then worked out and immediately got called to go to a diner. We did that (the waitress acted like Tawm was retarded, which he found HILARIOUS), then drove Derick and Laura back to Syracuse. 0 studying was accomplished and last I checked Shaka was 3 pages into the 10 pages paper that was due yesterday. Great weekend.

Watching Dreamgirls was a mistake. I hate going into movies not knowing they're musicals or with subtitles. (Dreamgirls doesn't have subtitles, but it's happened like that before.)

Home tomorrow for Thanksgiving. Not sure what's going on. The only tentative plans are some movie with Sam. I also want to try and see Saw 4 or 30 Days of Night at the Palisades, so if anyone is down that'd be good to know.

They just keep singing in this movie. For 130 minutes. Damn it.

Don't be sad. She's in a better place. ...actually she's in the freezer. Because of the odor.

Jesus, I haven't posted in a while.

Er, ok, let's start with what I can remember from Halloween weekend. If you're not on facebook, I was a pervert. It was fun being extremely creepy. Literally half of what I said all night was "Can I smell you?" and "How old are you?" *20* "14?" Also we were a large and solid crew, consisting of myself, Shaka, Brussel, Jeremy, Shaka's friend Dubs, and Gael. It's almost the '92 Rumble, but not quite. That'll be on the 17th. Everyone was out too, like people from the gym and Hughes people and Max and Eric and so on and so forth. Good freaking night.

Halloween itself involved training people for the Hinman weight room (*Uh, it should take like 40 min* and 10 min later we're done) and watching the Evil Deads. We had some people for the first, basically just me and Schafer for the second, but a group came back strong for Army of Darkness. Bruce Campbell just brings the people in.

Mad supposed road trips in the next 8-10 months. Winter road trip in January, Orlando in March, then supposedly visiting Sam's girlfriend in North Carolina and going to some awesome waterpark in Virginia whenever.

You know when it's really hard to grade papers? When you own Guitar Hero 3.

It figures that when I take 3 days off from lifting I get sick.

Haha, the new Brand New cd is labeled as "post-hardcore" on itunes. That's for you Eric.

Yo, 8:30s everyday next semester. How fucked up is that?

I don't know whether to cry, throw up, or punch you in the face.

I know I haven't updated in a while. My bad.

This weekend was full of craziness. Friday looked like shit until Beth and Max got stuck on Main Street and called for me to get them. From there we went to the Mad Moose and hung out with Shaka while he bounced. It was better than it sounds. Saturday night was Teen Wolf. THAT was a good time, with 80s music and dancing and sweating and Max and his girl grinding on each other to the point where everyone was thinking *well he's getting laid hard tonight*. The text he sent me at 3:30 that night confirmed that, if you care.

I'm stuck weighing 192. It's like my body has just said "You've had enough, bro." Yes, my body calls me bro.

Party for Nick on Friday. There's gonna be a banner and beer pong and Friday the 13th movies on mute and music and good times.

I'm sure there's more, but I got 5 hours of sleep last night and I want over 7 tonight, so I'm going to sleep.

If you could be anything you want, the world would be full of movie stars and astronauts. Then who would make the sandwiches?

[What I'm listening to (and what you should be too) |Every Time I Die-Hit of the Search Party]

Two times today people sat in the backseat of my car. And two times I didn't think that they might have opened the window. So two times I left the car and came back to find the backseat window down cuz I'm an idiot. Thankfully, no times did anything get stolen. Anything of course being my stereo and the large amount of trash inhabiting my car from Saturday's trek to Jersey.

So yea, Alumni weekend was cool, even if I missed a good chunk of it. Went to two house parties and downtown on Friday. The first party was alright, but I didn't know as many people as I had assumed I would The second was fucking wrong. Zero ventilation, so the house was hot as balls, you had to take your shoes off at the door ("What is this? An 8th grade slumber party?"), and everyone there was very...Jewish. I have no idea how else to describe it. Just extremely stereotypical. Not knowing anyone didn't help. Except my Bio 118 TA, who I talked with about his Chemistry research because there was nothing else. Then we went to the Moose for a while, then headed back downtown where I saw more people. The ride back was us yelling "Chris Powell (insert rest of whatever sentence you want)". So like "Chris Powell says nice green shirt there!". This led to a drunk Chris Powell yelling shit at everyone, despite us being at red lights. It also makes me wish I used "This is a good corner for talking" or "Good talking! Nice vest!" as my title. Not that they're funny in this context, but really, what that I say is?

Saturday went workout, then food (maybe Moe's, I forget), then met up with Selina and Danny, then drove to Jersey with Shaka and Gael for wrestling. The show was ok, but Nigel won the title, which was both cool and helpful in our plan. See, we didn't think Nigel would win. And Sam, a huge Nigel fan, wouldn't be going because Seth Rogan was hosting SNL and he was gonna go. So our plan was to text Sam right after the match (which we assumed Nigel would lose) saying that he won and Sam missed it and it wouldn't be until 4 AM that he would find out. So as soon as Nigel wins, I look at Shaka and say *tell Sam he lost*. And that's what he did. We came up with details about the whole thing. And then while showering later I get a call from a pissed off Sam, who had just found out the truth. Totally worth being cold and wet for 5 minutes to hear him pissed. I haven't talked to him since then, actually. Maybe he's legit pissed. But anyway, we get back to Binghamton in like 2 hours and 45 min, giving us 10 minutes downtown (mapquest said it would be like 3:10). Saw like 4 people (all non-alumni) and went home. Can't beat that. And Sunday I saw a bunch of old Fitspace alum at Applebees. Not much to say there.

While walking to my car after hanging out at Shaka's tonight I saw a broken branch and a shoe on the sidewalk, which made me think werewolves. Then I realized there was no full moon and I had no idea what I was dealing with.

Ok, so this Winter Break should be significantly more busy than last years. No 65 movies for me. Right when I get back Kristin is staying with me, which should be fun until she she spends more than an hour with me one-on-one and gets sick of me. Am I right? But yea, there will be the city and...well, I dunno what else, but it should be cool. Then at the beginning on January, me, Shaka, and Shaka's friend Derick are spending the weekend in San Diego. And since we're driving, we're leaving on Tuesday Jan 1st. Here's how it's going. We're supposedly doing all the driving there in one shot. Smithtown, NY to San Diego, CA. Amarillo, TX is our basepoint because friends of Shaka's got there in 25 hours. Then it's just like 16 to San Diego. If we have to, we'll sleep. If not, we'll sleep when we get there. Then beach, 80s cover band, and whatever else. Sunday we hit Las Vegas, do whatever there. After that, Denver! I dunno. Then driving back. Should be like 9 days. Everyone is getting texted. Like anyone in my phone book is getting some kind of text like "I'm in fucking Omaha". And hopefully there will be like 400 pictures and 12 videos up on facebook. It's either going to be amazing or the worst idea we've ever had. That's the problem. None of us are saying *wow, this is retarded*. And by problem, I mean best part.

So the asian roommate we never see randomly bought 4 dvds without owning a dvd player. So guess what I own if he leaves them here. The Marine. And Borat, Rocky Balboa, and the Grudge. But The Marine.

Guess what? I have flaws. What are they? Oh, I don't know. I sing in the shower. I spend too much time volunteering. Occasionally I'll hit somebody with my car.
