Is anybody here? [Dec. 2nd, 2008|07:11 pm]

[music |Akira Yamaoka feat Mary Elizabeth McGlynn - One More Soul to the Call]

A little recap of the recent past:

-Since I'm too broke to go out much, I've been hanging out with Ted, eating candy, watching 24 and Durham County. He took me to Baton Rouge this Friday and I realized I eat more than a 300 pound man. Scary.

-Saturday was Iza's birthday, and it was fun to get out to a 'real' social event. Unfortunately it's in the midst of the end of the semester so I had to be conservative about it. Plus, still broke. I hope to make up for it when I have a real career by this time next year.

-Sunday I found out my singer was in a major car crash. He's got broken ribs, punctured lung, etc. Gonna visit him tomorrow. I'm glad he's alive and going to be okay. If I may be selfish for a moment, this really sucks for me because I spent a good amount of time wondering if I was ready to invest this kind of money and time into the band. I told myself that despite rent and practice time being double, at least we'd be getting somewhere twice as fast. Now we're without a singer for the next few months and we have to cover his share of the rent. FUCK ME.

-Monday, submitted final game project. Surprisingly my team didn't let me down. Emilien did a fantastic job, really, I was blown away. Seeing as this accounts for the biggest part of the course's grade, I can only hope our project out-shone the others.

My general feeling these days is one of annoyance. I'm annoyed with the universe. I'm uncertain of where I'm really, truly headed. I'm trying to re-evaluate my stance, but I'm missing so much information to make a decision.

Ack... no more time to spend on this today. Back to studying.

I love you all. I'll see you, when I see you.

-Someone to come play Squash with me. I've got 2 rackets.
-Someone to come play ice hockey with me at my local outdoor rink (nearby park). I've already enlisted my band mates. Need more people.
-Someone who's into going snowboarding/skiiing on weekdays. Fuck weekends, way too many people.
-Someone to come sledding with me at Centennial Park here in DDO. This means you, Marc, but others are invited as well ;)

I'd love to fast-forward in time 3 weeks and just skip all the final projects and exams, straight to my vacation.

Unfortunately... I'm not Hiro Nakamura.

If life is about the simple things, then my biggest joy tonight will be watching the season finale of True Blood.

I'm jonesing baby, I'm jonesing bad. [Nov. 13th, 2008|01:12 pm]

If I give in now, the consequences will be disastrous.

The phrase, "You've been down that path before, you know where it leads" comes to mind.



I just need to hold on for one more month, down to the day. I'll be home free after that.

I had a dream last night that Michelle Forbes was my neighbour, and she was slightly psychotic. It's hard to explain, but she was hardcore Admiral-Cain-esque with a tinge of evil and sadistic to her. What a turn on, too bad I was scared of getting stabbed by her :P

for the Jazz fans [Sep. 2nd, 2008|12:15 pm]

She does covers of Gary Jules and No Doubt in jazz, and she's from Toronto, and from the hits on her myspace I'd say she's pretty 'small', so let's show some support, check out:

[music |Kamelot - Love You To Death]

Well, I'm leaving for Toronto in 40 minutes. FanExpo and all that jazz. I'm sure excitement will catch up to me once I properly wake up...

This is my first one, wish me luck.

FOCUS! INTENSITY!

NO DYING!

That was our battle cry, back in Fist of Aman'Thul. It's funny the things you learn and apply in life.

Do you ever feel like you feel things at a level beyond what everybody else is experiencing? Like you're walking down a busy street, feeling pure intensity, while the rest of the people around you seem contrastingly asleep?

It's hard to explain but I feel this way. All the time. And it has nothing to do with happiness or sadness.

I've spent this beautiful day indoors, studying for my OB final. The good grade feels like it's in my grasp, almost tangible, but at the same time I'm fed up with the memorization. As much as I 'understand' the material, I've still got more work to do on my regurgitation.

I've been procrastinating on my weights this week, so tonight I'm gonna go do my chest and triceps. Peter asked me to give him a shout, but I don't feel like seeing anybody. I mean, I don't have the extra time for conversation, and the thing about Peter is that he and I can talk for hours. I'll make it up to him in a few days when this is all over, seeing as he's been asking me to go with him for smokedmeat.

I'll go through rotations where I'll see someone often in a short period. Like I've hung out with Wendy for a weekend and two evenings in the last couple of weeks. Sometimes I'll see Ted three times in a week. Sometimes Peter. Sometimes Iza. Only my favorite people!

Can you feel it? [Aug. 10th, 2008|09:46 pm]

[music |Lacuna Coil - Within Me]

On friday I met my accounting department liaison somewhere far from campus so they could help save my sorry ass from flunking a course that I've actually put a considerable amount of work in but which is rigged to trick students (think I'm being melodramatic? Oh, if you only knew what I know about this prof!).

Then band practice in the evening was very good. I can't wait to find a new drummer, though. And I can't wait for exams to end so I can get some composing done. The way I've been feeling lately should be inspiring.

My friends are the fucking best.

Someday I'll get through to Mike that although we argue like a couple sometimes, I still do love him and he shouldn't worry so much about my 'thinking he's a bad guy'.

Hanging out with Bob and Wendy last night was great! I haven't been able to use my own pool due to the shit weather, but we hit Bob's swanky apartment pool and hot tub. And I think Wendy's on to something. There's a calming quality about seeing the world through your friends' eyes. I don't know about everyone else, but after a night spent with friends, I don't quite feel the pressures of my own life so heavily.

And today Iza made amazing crepes, I must've eaten over a dozen of them, with mushrooms and swiss cheese, with bananas and nutella, with blueberries and maple syrup, or with lemon and sugar. 2000 calories right there, but fucking worth it.

Tomorrow I'm going to make supper for my sister and I, the pesto pasta avocado salad. I think I'll add some tofu cooked in garlic for added protein. And then I'll hit the gym because I need to do my back so it can look as good as this.
