Please forget about the last post that I wrote. I should really delete it but at that moment that's how I left so that's why it will stay.
What can I say about yesterday? Words can't even describe it. Me, Jon, and Jamie were going to go mini golfing but Jamie had a family issue so we decided to call Tara. Boy was that a good choice. It's a shame that we only average seeing her twice a year if that. So we get her and go to Eisenhower Park but the golf closed at 9 and we got there 20 after. So we went to the beach instead. While on the boardwalk she recounted stories of Italy to which I can't even describe. But you know what, it's her life so more power to her. Then we went to Applebee's to 2fers and Jamie came. All in all it was a good night. Current Mood: hot

|RIP Chris Benoit
I know many of you don't care but one of the great wrestlers in the business today passed away yesterday. This man was Chris Benoit. The incident is believed to have been a double-murder suicide. Who'd believe it, I sure as hell can't. It was bad enough that I lost him off my show to ECW and now this. Life just doesn't make sense sometimes. Here was a guy was was 39/40 and this tragedy had to happen. Well Chris, here's to you, a great guy (from what I could tell) that left this world way too early. You will be missed. Current Mood: numb

This one is by request from Jamie. Again this one is somewhat abridged.
Friday- Me, Jamie and Pat head to TCNJ to go see George Carlin. Left at a little after 2. Stopped on the Turnpike to get gas because again it was like 30 cents cheaper a gallon there then here. We got Cinnabons when Jamie fueled up. Got the TCNJ with no problem. Dropped off our stuff then went to park the car. Chilled for a while and did some Guitar Hero. Went to the show. First this guy Vance Gilbert came out and played his guitar and sang. Didn't know how he fitted with Carlin but he was good. After a 15 minute intermission Carlin came on and his show was like an hour and 15 minutes. Then we went to the Triumph in Princeton for dinner. After dinner we went to Halo for ice cream then back to the dorm. Watched some Rome then Nate finally came back. Around 1 we went to get our id's then sleep.
Saturday- Woke up at like 7. Got ready and went to Denny's. Ate then we dropped Jon back we were on the road again but then Pat lost his pen and Jon found it so we had to go back and get it. This time for real we left. We got back at like 11:30. Then at 3 I went to work. Current Mood: annoyed
|New Jersey 1
Wow, it has been what almost 4 months since the last time I wrote anything so maybe it is time again. Over the last lets say month I have taken two trips to New Jersey to see Jon. This will only be about the first one that me and Happes went on. Both trips will be written about in a somewhat abridged version.
Saturday: Marc came and got me about 10:15 am. Went to fill up on gas then we were off. Stopped at a pit stop on the Jersey Turnpike then it was back on the road again. This trip we took different directions then what I was use to. Got to TCNJ and picked up Jon so we could go get his car which was getting fixed. Drop him off to get his car then me and Marc are heading back to the school and then Marc's car breaks down. Had to wait a while for a tow truck. He took us to a place in Trenton. After getting lost for a a long time and actually ending up in PA, we finally found Marc. Went to get Pizza. Got back to the school and unloaded our stuff. Went to Princeton to go to PJ's Pancake House for dinner. Then back to the dorm to get ready for a party. The party was at Steve and Omar's house. Me and Jon kicked butt in beer pong for a while and that was enough drinking for me. Lots of other things happened so if you want to know, im me and I'll tell you. So at 2 we left. Got back to the dorm then Jon kicked us out of the room so me and Marc slept in the lounge.
Sunday: Only had about almost 4 hours of sleep. Marc called the car place to see what was wrong but they said they couldn't look at it till Monday. Mind you we only planned on staying till Sunday. Jon woke up then we had a talk about the night before and after that was over we decided to go to Philadelphia. That was cool though I would have liked to see more but what can you do. Left at like 4 or 5 and then headed back. Fuse blew in Jon's car which everyone said was my fault but I don't know. When we got back me and Marc took JDBOR and went to Wendy's and Hollywood Video. We got Flags of Our Fathers. When we got back the RA's were at the desk so they wouldn't allow us to go back to the room unless Jon was there. We had to wait till 8 for him to get out of his meeting. This happened at like 6:30. After we found him we went to Wawa which is my favorite. Then finally back to dorm but Jon thought the movie would be too deep to handle at such a late time so we watched Borat instead. At 1 me and Marc got our id's back then we went to sleep in the room this time.
Monday: Woke up and went to Denny's. On the way there the Marc called for the car but they said it wasn't done yet. Ate then got a newspaper and headed back to the dorm. Jon had office hours so he left so it was me, Marc, and Nate. At like 2:30 me and Marc headed down to the dining hall to eat and then Jon called and we went to get the car. Got to the car and loaded it while Marc was inside getting everything squared away. $600 plus dollars later we were on our way. Back on the Turnpike we got gas because it was cheaper then home. Filled it up but then we found the gas to be leaking out from the bottom of the truck. After an hour we decided to take our chances and head home. We made it back thank goodness.

So today me and Jon have some down time so I thought I'd fill people in back home about what's been going on.
Saturday: The flight was at 8:45. We left out of MacArthur on Southwest. We got to Florida at 11:25. We flagged down Uncle Cliffy then we went to his house because that's where Julie's car was. Then we came home.
Sunday: We went to the Wonderworks on International Drive. That was fun. Then we went to Vanity Fair but there was nothing for me. After that we went shopping for New Year's. Our plans fell though but we still had a party at the apartment. I beat Jon and Julie in Beer Pong.
Monday: We went to Epcot for the whole day.
Tuesday: We went to see Smackdown/ECW in Lakeland. It was great.
That is the short version of what has happened so when we get back, we will fill you all in. Current Mood: awake

The last days off have been great, the greatest in some time. Since last Tuesday I have been off from school because of Thanksgiving break.
Tuesday- Went to work till two then like I said in a previous post, I went to see Smackdown/ECW. It was great.
Wednesday- Worked till 12. At night I went out with Happy to Dave and Busters. It was great. Air hockey was great, the shooting games were great. He bought me my first drink ever. We asked for Jack and Coke but all we got was Jack. Then I think I got a Long Island Ice Tea. That was better.
Thursday- Went out to Stefan's for Thanksgiving.
Friday- Worked till 2 again. Went out with Tommy and Adam because they were the only ones there. Went shopping. Got Smackdown v. Raw 2007. At night I went out with Jon and Happy. Went shopping for our party and then to Applebees.
Saturday- Had me and Jon's 21st Birthday Party. It was great. Don't want to bore with details but it was great. Stayed up till after 4.
Sunday- Was woken up by Larry and Terri coming home before 8. Went to McDonald's for breakfast. Then went home to go car shopping with my dad and Uncle Jimmy. I think we are going to be getting a Honda Pilot. Went to Uncle Jimmy's for a while after and then home. Watched some stuff and then had dinner . Went to sleep before 10 if I'm not mistaken.
|Wednesday, November 22nd, 2006|
Yesterday was amazing. I went to the Smackdown/ECW show at the Coliseum. It was so much fun. I went with Tommy and Adam from work. Highlight of the night was def the Hardy Boyz reunion. It was so great. The whole night was great. We saw White Anthony there with his girlfriend and I saw Steve there with his girlfriend (I worked with him as well many moons ago). Too many things to discuss but if I didn't say, it was one of the most fun things ever.
|Monday, November 20th, 2006|
Happy Birthday to me. Yes the day has finally come for me to turn the ripe old age of 21. Who'd believe it. Though today is my long day at school, I will not be attending my last class because I'm not going to waste away at school on my birthday. Hope I don't miss much. To those who have already sent birthday wishes, thank you and to those who haven't sent any yet, hope to hear from you soon.
|Tuesday, November 14th, 2006|
So Sunday night I can back from PA like I normally do this time of year. This trip was not as good as it has been in the past. Things were different like Julie not being there. Big Jim is more of a loser then ever. He was killing me. Stefan was buying up an arsenal. This is a rundown.
Friday- We left at like 6am even though I was told we would leave at 5. We made it to the Green Dragon. Shopped around there for a few hours. Went to the hotel to check in. Then we went to Bebe's. It's an Amish food store. All the food there is expired but apparently still good. After that we went back to the hotel. After an hour or two being back I went to sleep at like 8:30.
Saturday- Went to eat at Perkins. Then to Bid-in-Hand to the farmer's market. Then across the street so my Dad could get some cigars. Then to Kitchen Kettle. Then to some junk stores. Back to the hotel. Then to Wal-Mart for a while. Then we had my pizza party topped off with a game of Guesstures and then cake. After company left me and Mom went to Wawa. I'm telling you we really need some of those up here.
Sunday- Had breakfast. Back to hotel to pack up. Stopped at the Vanity Fair close by and got some dress pants. Then we went to the VF in Reading to get jeans and some hoodies. Then we got home at about 8:30 that night.
Should really get going because I have a project due tomorrow about self-monitoring and I know nothing about it.
|Monday, October 30th, 2006|
On Saturday Jamie and I went to the movies to see The Marine. It was good and I liked it. Though at the beginning the movie had some trouble getting started and then early on in the move, I guess the scene was a little to racy for one family so they got up at let. Surprisingly for a movie that no one has seen, the theater was crowded. After the movie we went to Applebee's. that was fun.
This week should be crazy. Have a 13 page paper due on Thursday but have no idea what I want to write it on. Between tomorrow and Wednesday I should get it done. I just don't want to wait like I usually do for the night before to do it. But what doesn't make me feel so bad is that other kids in the class haven't started it yet either. I have to register for classes in 58 minutes. I thought next semester would have been easier but boy did I think wrong. Current Mood: stressed
|Monday, October 23rd, 2006|
Today has been a long day. I've been up since 5am and things haven;t been pleasant. The reason why I had to be up early was because I needed to finish a paper. It took a lot longer then expected. I only finished 1 page last night, woke up this morning and did another 3. I came to school when I needed to but didn't go to my first class because I had to finish and that was at 10. I didn't get dine with that paper till like 1:20. I hand the paper in and everyone is telling the professor that they didn't know anything was due today so i don't know what is to become of that. Now I still got a class to go. Starts at 6:30 and ends at 8:20. Hopefully it goes y quicker then it did last week. Current Mood: uncomfortable

|RIP Cory Lidle
As some of you know, today at around 2:30pm Cory Lidle's plane crashed into an apt building in the city. Everybody thought it was another terrorist attack but that just goes to show you what kind of world we live in today. Though he may not have had the baseball career, losing a player is a big deal to anybody who has every played the game. I like to think that all baseball players belong to a fraternity so for many people, it's like losing a brother. Though he may not have gone out on top, he will sorely be missed. Current Mood: sad
|Monday, October 9th, 2006|
As I wrote on something before, I'm done with that 6 page paper that I waited to do today instead of on the weekend. I hope its good enough because I don't think its great. I had a midterm today in Modern China. All it was was 3 id's and that's it. i hope that was good enough as well. The paper I wrote about the Boxer Rebellion I got back and got an A on it, I'm still in shock. I just want this day to be done. I really should go home and read after class but i don't think that's happening. I was up early today studying so I don't think I'll be in the mood to do anything when I get home.
On Saturday me and Jamie went out but nothing went to plan. We were going to see Gridiron Gang but there were no close parking spots so we couldn't go. Then we went to the Witches Brew were I got my usual. On the way home Jamie wanted to stalk Jon's house even though he wasn't going to be home because he should have been at school right? Wrong. We go pass the house and sure enough JDBor is in front of the house. We were shocked but yesterday he called to say he was writing papers and that's why he couldn't go out. Which is cool. Sometimes funny things happen when you set out to stalk people. We'll i guess that's it. Current Mood: blah
|Wednesday, October 4th, 2006|
I know this shouldn't be anything new to anybody but I figured out that I have so much stuff to do for the next 2 days and i don't know how they will get done. I mean they will get done but I don't know how. I have over 100 pages to read for class tomorrow. I start observing for real tomorrow. I have a 7 page paper due on the Boxer Rebellion for Friday. God knows how this will get done. I have had ample opportunities to start these things the last few days but just had no desire to start.Maybe instead of crying about this I can get some reading done now, class isn't till 2:25.

Last night was the first time I went out in a while. Me, Jamie and Pat went to Friendly's for dessert. Me and Jamie were to go to see Fearless at 9:15 but Friendly's was packed so we didn't make that one. Friendly's was pretty bad. It seemed as if all I was eatting from my Reese's Pieces Sundae was toppings. After Friendly's me and Jamie went to Starbuck's but first I had him take me to work so I could pick up my dvd that Adam finally decided to bring in. So we get there and I see that the door was left open but no one was around. So as we were leaving, Rocks pulled in and told him not to worry because it was only me. Then we went to Starbuck's. Then the movie was at 9:50 at UA in Farmingdale. It was good though for Jamie all the action must have been too much for him so he took a nap during the movie. Current Mood: sleepy

|Lets get Going
So things have been good lately. Finally got my placement for my observing. It's a funny story.
So it had been a month and I still hadn't heard from the school that I wanted to go to. I went to the STEP office to see if they knew anything but of course they did not. So I took it upon myself yo go to the school to see what was going on. So I got to the school and I sign in and have to wait in the office to see the principal because he is my contact. So like a half an hour later I go in to talk. There is a pile on his desk of all the people who needed placement and he hadn't gotten to anyone. So he said that since I was there we can do mine. So I found that I'm gonna be observing a 7th grade class; regular kids in the morning and inclusion kids in the afternoon. So I finally start this Thursday.
Ok maybe the story could have been better. I can tell it better than I can write about it. Besides that, work is good (no more Nails I think). Only working 19 hrs a week is both good and bad. bad because I'm not getting more money and good because if I had the drive to do work sooner than waiting for the last minute, I can. Well class is starting soon, last one of the day. I'm out. Current Mood: amused
|Wednesday, September 13th, 2006|
So all I can say so far is that school has been like school. Classes are ok so far but I can tell that very soon things may get overwhelming. But that is how life is for a history and secondary ed guy like myself. Still haven't gotten my placement yet though it has been 3 weeks already since school has started. I went to the office today to see how things were going but the lady in there was just as clueless as I was which is always a good sign. As the weeks keep on going by without me being placed yet, I have too figure out a way to fit in those 50 hrs of observation time somehow.
This week I'm going to work Friday night with Rocks because it is the last time that I can work more than 19 hrs so I can make a few more bucks. Anything has to be better than working the night shift like I did on Sunday. Don't get me wrong, it was ok but things can only get better I hope.
Well I think that should do it. I have a history majors meeting at 1 and probably should start getting ready for that. Current Mood: sick
|Sunday, September 3rd, 2006|
On Thursday I went out with Jamie and Pat. We went to Friendly's. We had to wait till after 10 because Jamie was still working, at Stop n Shop. But it was good.
Yesterday I went out with Jon. We went to Checker's. then to Roosevelt Field. then to rent a movie, we got Munich. That lasted for a while. Current Mood: pessimistic

|Summer '06 in Review
It's that time of year again where I like to express my feelings about the summer that has come and gone. Seems like the last few summers have just kept on getting worse and worse. This summer was really bad. Don't get me wrong, it had many good things about it but overall it was bad. Mainly sucked because not having your best friend around for the summer can really put a damper on things. Again, I understand the reason for him not being around but with him not here, it was really bad at times. Going such long times without seeing people sucked. On 2 separate occasions it went over what accumulated to be over a month without seeing the friends that were home. It's cool though some people had problems and didn't want to talk to anyone about them so because of that, going out didn't happen a lot.
Work was bad this year. I mean real bad. First there was like 13 seasonals, a number that I had never even fathomed about working at Market Lane before. I'm use to like 4 or 5 kids but not 13. Justin working with me was really cool.
Never did make it to see Tara though. I thought there would have ben many going outs with her but they never happened. We were, me and Jamie, suppose to have gone and seen her at her school this week but that never happened. She wanted use to see her apartment. First it was to be Thursday but she said not to come till 6 P.M. I figured since I had work the next day that that probably wasn't a good idea so I switched it to Friday. Then when Friday came around, Jamie said 6 was still a stupid time so when I called her to tell her, she was like, " coming at 6 is not a good reason for not coming." I told her to call Jamie and talk to him about it but she never did. So when she called to see what happened, I asked her if she had called him and when she said no I told her she had her answer, we weren't coming. Then she said something about Saturday but I told her I was busy. Some day though, either this semester or the next, me and Jamie will go to see her because it is something that I really want to do.
So there you have it, my feelings on the summer. Just because it's how I felt doesn't mean that these feelings were felt by other people. Well I think that should do it so until next time. Current Mood: depressed
So last week was the last full week of summer for me. I know some of you lucky suckas have another week to go but I digress. The fun started out last week on Tuesday.
Tuesday- Went to the Duck's game with Jon and Happes. I'm not exaggerating when I say I think it was the most fun I ever had. We had seats behind home plate. Were suppose to get bobblehead dolls but we weren't one of the first 1,500. Damn you Dantona Industries. Since not so many people like to say anything during the game; me, Happes, and Jon we leading the cheers. I had Lets Go Ducks, Quack, Quack, Quack. Happes had Squish the Fish and Jon had Buck-EEEE. It was so great. One problem I had though was that stupid Dominick Ambrosini(spelling) was the P.C. Richards player of the game. The guy just sucked. He got a hit which was a gift because he got a broken bat single. The other times up the loser struck out. Me and Happes we riding him the whole game and at one point when he struck out one of the many times, he stared right at us as we were heckling him. So I said, "yeah that's right, I'm talking to you." In the end they lost but the best part was that Jon got a foul ball.
Wednesday- BBQ at Brady's. That was good. Had to give him his dvd's and game back. We were there for like 3 hours or so.
Thursday- Went to IHOP with Jamie, Jon, and Pat. That dining experience was interesting to say the least. Then after we dropped off Pat and Jon, me and Jamie hit up the L-Town Best Buy, then to the Westbury Best Buy, then back to the L-Town one again. Then we went to Friendly's.
Yesterday- Me and Jamie went to Tanger to do some shopping. I got new sneakers and a Big Dog shirt. He shopped at places where I can only dream of fitting into those kind of clothes again. Then when we were leaving I told him I needed to get cd cases. So he mentioned the Best Buy in Riverhead. Boy was that and interesting story about how we finally got there. Then at sometime after 7 Jon came over to do some Karaoke. Then when we were done with that we went to All American to get some food.
All I can say is that this past week was amazing. Too bad it had to wait until the last week of summer but oh well. Current Mood: depressed
