Life's Little Annoyances

Aug. 5th, 2010 | 08:55 pm

1. People who stand still on escalators and moving walkways. They're not thrill rides, people.
2. How quickly people fall asleep is directly correlated to how loudly they snore. The louder you snore, the quicker you fall asleep, the longer I have to listen to it.
3. "Express Loading" at the airport apparently now just means anyone seated in the front 10 rows of the plain with 3 bags to store overhead is allowed to load first because they're too dumb to follow directions.
4. The tallest people on board the aircraft will now automatically be seated directly behind the people with no hesitation to recline their seat back as far as humanly possible. Goodbye ability to move your legs for the next 4 hours.

g'luck to the USA team in tomorrow's World Cup game. and condolences to Nelson Mandella on the loss of his great-granddaughter.

i plan to enjoy the game while drinking imported beer and gorging myself on wings at B-dubs in Bay City with my good friend Luke. other patriots are welcome to tag along, but all you soccer critics can sit at home. call/text me by noon if you wanna come with.

that is all.

memorable quotes from the past week:
"she's not getting any tonight" ~Cory
"chinchilla? sounds like something on a taco bell menu" ~Me
"the only ride she's gettin is in my bed tonight" ~Cory
"that blond chick might be 16" ~Me

excitement =/= interesting

~dad got in a motorcycle wreck but is doing fine. little banged up and will be off work for a while (with adam playing nurse) but he'll make a full recovery.
~still unemployed. fucking seasons change is like a cancer on my resume.
~still single. i'll never understand women... or their distaste of me. i'm apparently destined for the upper rungs of the friends ladder.
~going to see She & Him next weekend. i'm stoked to finally see Zooey in person. it's not healthy, i know, but when i find a healthy relationship to substitute i'll end the obsession.

it's sad that my life can be summarized in 4 bullets, but w/e; i'm making the most of the cards i'm dealt.

i forgot how therapeutic writing in this could be, so i return during a particularly confusing time in my life. after quitting my job at the healthcare agency (big long story involving a miniature golf course, the FBI, and my tyrannical ex-boss) i made up my mind i'm going to leave michigan and get a fresh start somewhere else.

arizona was a bust so i decided on vegas. now i'm not so sure. my dad's been trying to talk me out of it (that sentence reads "talking sense to me" because i know how crazy it is). his reasoning: i have more support here than i realize and i'm going for all the wrong reasons. i'm starting to think he's right. i've always dreamed of packing up, driving off, and just starting a completely new life somewhere. but is my life here really that bad? i've got great friends and great family (the few of them i see anyway). maybe this was a dumb idea.

i dunno. i'm torn. part of me feels like long-term it would be the best thing for me even if it means making sacrifices in the short-term. but another part of me feels like i'm just running away from a situation that isn't nearly as bad as i've perceived in the past.

anyway, i guess the responsible thing would be to put it off until i'm certain i know it's what i want. i think i'll definitely keep it open as an option in the coming months, but for now i should wait.

i apologize to those of you i'd told i was leaving. i hate it when people say they're making these huge life-changing plans and then never follow through. i never wanted to be that guy, but now i am and i feel like a fool.

gah, anyway, i'm gonna try to write in this more to keep my head clear. read at your own risk - i can be pretty boring sometimes.

things are looking up?

Nov. 19th, 2009 | 09:51 pm

i've made a few changes that i think should help me to enjoy myself a little more. for one thing i'm taking a much more positive attitude toward work. i'm thinking of it in more of a long-term sense than just collecting a paycheck. i really feel like i can do a lot of good here and i've gotten to the point where i'm relied upon.

as far as the personal life, i think i'm going to try to take more of a proactive stance. i'm sick of waiting around for someone to come into my life to make me happy. i was invited to a writers' guild, so i think i'm going to join that and try to shift my focus away from my romantic failures. i'm also not going to keep putting up with people using me for a place to complain about how 'difficult' their life happens to be at that particular time. i've got my own problems to deal with, people. usually they don't take my advice anyway; they just like to complain.

finally, i realized that i've kept some people in my life for the wrong reasons. i don't want to live the delusion anymore. i'm going to pay more attention to the people who are true friends that i've regretfully neglected for far too long. for those of you in that category, i apologize.

anyway, on a more factual note, i'd like to announce that i am now a pseudo-owner of a putt putt golf course :) my current boss fronted the cash for the purchase, but wants nothing to do with operations. she's going to sign me on to all the accounts and turn the place over to me. it's going to be incredibly challenging to turn the place around, but i'm positive i can do it. i'm really looking forward to putting that much energy into something that i truly love.

well that's all for now. hopefully i'll keep up with this thing more now that i'll be making an effort to write on a regular basis.

much love,

so sick of the status quo. i need a change. wish i wasn't such a pansy and continued putting up with everything. maybe the new house will bring a new "fuck you" attitude. think ari gold from entourage. he's my hero.

moving to caseville soon
might be managing putt-putt next year
work's okay
still single
graduate in december
flying to AZ in december for a much needed weekend retreat

that's about it. later.

i wonder...did Judas sleep the night after?

Apr. 6th, 2009 | 03:49 am

can't sleep. i feel like i just stabbed Sparty in the back and had to watch him die. a few hours ago i had championship tickets in my hand and now they're just covered in green sparty-blood. and all for a few pieces of silver. ugh.

i guess i could argue that i had no choice...but there's always a choice, right? either way tomorrow's game is ruined for me. if we win i'm just going to feel that much more guilty. and if we lose i'll feel like shit because that douchebag hansborough beat us AGAIN.

basically if you see me tomorrow you are fully within your right to dump a beer on my head and call party foul. i'll still be cheering sparta on...just from a distance (didn't Judas go to visit Jesus on the cross?)

Go Green

so tired

Mar. 7th, 2009 | 03:44 am

can't sleep cuz it hurts too much. dumbass that i am, i decided to "get ripped" and kinda overdid it on the arm curls for the first time through. now i can't straighten either arm w/o cringing. kinda frustrating considering i'm just going to give up in two weeks anyway and it'll all be for naught.

found an apartment for the summer. i'm still not sure if it was the right decision but it should be entertaining at least. the apartment itself is a good location and decent price. i was kind of hoping for a pool, but i guess i'll just have more motivation to come home and actually go to the beach on occasion. and i really don't think we'd find any cheaper, so we'll see how it goes.

anyway, back to bed to try again.
