Taking a break!

First I want to apologize for not being very active when it comes to keeping up with journals. That's not going to change anytime soon. Things are getting rough. On top of the depression I have a lot of homework to do. I have so many papers to write and presentations to prepare along with studying for finals. This semester will be over in about another month so i'll have two weeks off to enjoy. Don't get me wrong, i'll still be stopping in to comment and write when I get a chance but it won't be often. If you need/want to delete me feel free. I completely understand and there will be no hard feelings. Take care and wish me luck! Later.

Ironically, i'm not listening to music now. I'm watching television but I just felt like doing this post.

I've noticed that lately, probably around late last year, that when I hear a song i'm usually trying to find the sound of the bass guitar. Good bass playing can make me listen to a song that I think sucks. I've tested this and have noticed that songs that I didn't really care much for are more appealing after hearing the bass guitar.

I guess this is why I like listening to bands like Red Hot Chili Peppers and No Doubt. Flea and Tony Kanal are great bass players and they'll keep you bobbing your head to the music. I heard something that just blew me away though. It was on Tuesday. A guy that I work with and I were going to Genuardi's and he had this cd in. It was Bela Fleck and the Fleck Tones. Great instrumental stuff. I heard this bass solo and was really caught off guard by the sounds that this bass player was producing. The guys name is Victor Wooten and he is the best bass player in the world and I dare you to prove me wrong.

I ended up looking online and he has a cdA Show of Hands that he released in 1996 I think. It's simply incredible. The whole album is basically this guy play a 4 string bass and there is occasionally a voice here and there. This guy, on just a 4 string bass, could put alot of actual bands to shame. Now I know this isn't for everyone. Most just want that catchy tune, but if you like to listen to people that can hold a conversation with you through their instrument then you've got to hear this.

First Post of 2004

Well, what to say here. To everyone that still reads this pile of rubbish. Thank you and Happy New Year. I'm not really into New Years Resolutions but......nah, nevermind. I'm not going to make any.

I'm sure my life will continue to be boring, but I will try to post more. I know some people really like reading these things and it's a helluva way to kill time.

I guess i've been through alot of stuff that I've left out of this thing. I guess even in now I fear judgment sometimes. I'm just going over some dates that are in my day planner and moving them over into my new one. I know it's hard to believe I even bother with them but I need them. I'm surprisingly forgetful. I have birthdays to remember and now I guess I have to remember how long i've been dating Josh. I know it was early December. I have a date for it but I have to check it, seeing as I kinda pulled it out of thin air.

Don't worry, my entries aren't going to get all sappy now. Although this is my longest relationship to date. I believe it'll be a month next week. Yet I remain very skeptical. I don't know, it just feels weird. I kinda have get that feeling that i'm supposed to be alone, there is actually some comfort that comes from that.

December was a hell of a month. What a way to end 2003. I got ripped off twice on ebay and once on amazon. I got the money back from the ebay ones on New Years Day. I wonder how far the secret service goes with those investigations. I didn't really believe that the secret service was getting involved but I don't know. In this day and age why would anyone bother trying to rip people off on the net. By being on the net you've created a trail that's damn near impossible to get rid of and then you go to a site whose business is putting people in touch to do business. If you rip people off then you affect that company's business so of course they'll make an example of you. It's not worth the risk for a couple hundred bucks.

Also in December my grandmother was hospitalized. I know this makes me sound like a bad grandson but I didn't know she was as far along in age as she is. I called her on Christmas Day, she was back home. I wished her a Merry Christmas and she seems to be doing better.

Whoa! This entry turned out to be longer than I thought it would be so let me end this here. Thanks for reading if you took the time. I'll try to post more. Take care.

True signs of boredom

It is advised that you come to work dressed according to your salary. If
we see you wearing $350 Prada sneakers, and carrying a $600 Gucci Bag,
we assume you are doing well financially and therefore you do not need a
raise. If you dress poorly, you need to learn to manage your money
better, so that you may buy nicer clothes, and therefore you do not need
a raise. If you dress in-between, you are right where you need to be and
therefore you do not need a raise.

We will no longer accept a doctor's statement as proof of sickness. If
you are able to go to the doctor, you are able to come to work.

Each employee will receive 104 personal days a year. They are called
Saturday & Sunday. &nbs! p; ;

This is no excuse for missing work. There is nothing you can do for dead
friends, relatives or co-workers! Every effort should be made to have
non-employees attend to the arrangements. In rare cases where employee
involvement is necessary, the funeral should be scheduled in the late
afternoon. We will be glad to allow you to work through your lunch hour
and subsequently leave one hour early.

Entirely too much time is being spent in the restroom. There is now a
strict 3 minute time limit in the stalls. At the end of three minutes,
an alarm will sound, the toilet paper roll will retract, the stall door
will open and a picture will be taken. After your second offense, your
picture will be posted on the company bulletin board under the "Chronic
Offenders" category.

Skinny people get 30 minutes for lunch as they need to eat more,! so that
they can look healthy. Normal size people get 15 minutes for lunch to
get a balanced meal to maintain their average figure. Fat people get 5
minutes for lunch, because that's all the time needed to drink a Slim
Fast. Thank you for your loyalty to our company. We are here to provide
a positive employment experience. Therefore, all questions, comments,
concerns, complaints, frustrations, irritations, aggravations,
insinuations, allegations, accusations, contemplations, consternation,
