The Master Plan!

So, besides trying to suffer through six more hours of work today (I'm already falling asleep sitting up at my desk), tonight I get to go see these guys at 7:00, and I'm pretty dang stoked! Nevermind that I'll be heading over at like 5:00 just to be able to get a decent seat for Mikelle and me - I've got my netbook and three seasons of Arrested Development, so I'll be able to keep myself entertained! Whats more, I've only got about 50 pages left in "Xenoside," which comes highly recommended to anyone who has any interested in the "Ender" series of books. As soon as I finish it I'm going to get "Children of the Mind," which has something to do with inter-dimensional spawns of the younger versions of Ender's siblings from more than three thousand years before (technically; only 45 years for Ender!) which should be quite interesting.
Tomorrow will be a real challenge! Two weeks ago I hiked straight up Y-Mountain to the top of the Y, and now its time to make it to the very top of the mountain itself! Mikelle, Brandon, Bri, and I will start our trek before it gets too warm and make the long, slow journey to the top! Fingers crossed we're all able to get up to the top; it should be quite a view from up there! Also gotta hope for good weather too I suppose..... I better check the forecast!

If you don't have anything to say, is it better to keep your trap shut, or blabber mindlessly? I'll go with the first!

New Goal

Be like Hugh Newmann!

I feel like life is just too short to spend it being down, and theres just too many people in the world that need cheering up, and I want to be that person! As a kid I always tended to be the negative child, and I think its time to turn that around. I figure if its a good change - the happier those people around me are, the happier I can be!

The bane of my StarCraft II existance!

Well, today has been rather.... relaxing? Thats an understatement; I'm pretty sure I've been sitting in the same spot all day since I got back from church! Thanks to Bizzle, I got my hands on a StarCraft II beta key, which turned out to be pretty darn fun! Downside? You're pretty dependent on your teammate, most of which completely suck - joy! So after an afternoon of getting pwnt by the Protoss Void Ray and the other beta-testers, my ego has be substantially bashed.

Currently there is nothing on TV, theres nothing to do online, and I'm really starting to get hungry, but I don't know that I really even have anything in my cupboard to eat..... I'm in rough shape! Thank goodness Mikelle finally comes home tomorrow! Having her gone for a week 'n a half has really taught me how dang important it is for guys to have their girls with them - the girls are what keep us on track, and sane! Just one more day and I get her back.... finally!

What happenings?

Well now.... ironic that I've named this "The happenings...." when really I haven't posted ANY happenings at all - almost two years and no posts, boy that's lame. Well, its time for me to quit being a slacker and update this thing! Mikelle writes in her journal every day, so I figure I can at least get SOMETHING down on here every day.

Now, for the thousands of you out there wondering "What amazingly inspirational event has inspired this truly magnificent man to start writing again?" Well let me tell you first that Good things can come in small packages! I was recently stalking and found an amazing deal on a net-book. I'd been debating whether to buy one for months, but I finally pulled the trigger, and boy I'm not disappointed! Weighing in at a whopping 2lbs and having a 12" screen, this thing is going to be perfect for classes! I figure since I spent the money on the computer, I need to at least be productive with it while I'm not in class, so I'm dedicating myself to writing here now.

So, in other news, sadly the last week I've been left to fend for myself while Mikelle has been on vacation. So while she's been playing in the Havasupai village, I've been forced to fend for myself and keep myself entertained, which has oddly enough been more difficult than I ever could have thought! Hours work, games, and the occasional visit to some buddies has kept me entertained. Needless to say, It would be amazing to be at that waterfall - cool water, warm rocks, hot girlfriend with me! A fella can dream can't he? Instead, I've slowly turned myself into this guy.

Its OK though - while I may be a disgusting blob, at least I have plenty of padding to keep myself warm while its snowing outside. Plus, oddly enough all those fat roll make a great cup-holder for my Rt44 Diet Dr. Pepper with vanilla and easy ice!

Alright, well I've babbled enough and I think I've accomplished my goal of writing at least something on this dang blog! Only two more days and these posts will get a bit more coherent, because I'll finally have gotten to see my girl after the week and a half of driving myself insane. Mikelle - come hoooooooommmmeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!
