a taste of desire

so today i had a lunch with beautiful girl who is most likely way out of my league but she did go to lunch with me so maybe i have a chance. she was very talkative which is good because everyone knows that i dont talk all that much. occasionally i had something to add but i didnt always get the chance. i had a very small window of time inbetween her short breaths of air to throw in some ideas of my own. now you may ask yourself "why is he complaining about this girl?". actually, im not, at all... i could definitely get used to someone that has a nice personality and is attractive because you must admit, looks do count to some extent and are often the reason we approach someone in the first place. so anyways, she seemed to have an enjoyable time while we ate at panera which was my choice but apparently one of her faves so i guessed i lucked out on that one. i don't know her all that well but i would definitely like to get to know her better and perhaps keep around as a companion of mine. i go long periods of time being single before i meet people that i click with. sure i meet lots of people but its a rare occasion for me to actually click with them, that's not to say that i can't get along with them. i can pretty much get along with anybody. perhaps she felt a click too. during our conversation at lunch one unfortunate detailed came up.. apparently she is dating someone but then she says she is single so i dunno. mine for the taking?!? should i act now!?! so i guess i kinda like someone but im not getting my hopes up just yet because then they can just as easily be let down. next time i talk to her to i think ill inquire about the guy she is dating and ask if i could take her out sometime.. if she says yes then perhaps she isn't too serious about him but the worst she can say is no. lastly, if anyone has any advice for me, since im hardly a pro to the game of dating, then leave a comment... it would be greatly appreciated!

enough to type this long overdue blog. there's a get up kids song called overdue.. its so sad that their last show is in like 3 days.. bummer! anyways.. a lot has happened in the past month.. i had a big party at my house for memorial day and all my friends that were in town. that was an awesome time and where eddie met his new gf so that's cool. then a week later i took a trip to DC and did some sight seeing and hung out with john and nicole again (since they were here for the party). i bought a pretty awesome shirt at hollister that says "computers.. just a crazy fad" which i laughed hysterically at.. not sure if everyone gets the joke but im a dork. then the next week all my friends and i went to john's parents' house on the naval base for a big party (his dad is captain of the USS Roosevelt now) everyone got pretty trashed there as well.. awesome times! and so that leads me to this weekend.. i work the entire weekend which is pretty shitty.. its father's day sunday and i think i got my dad a pretty funny card. i actually enjoy picking out cards for birthdays, holidays, etc.. i always make sure they are funny though.. i wouldnt have it any other way. today i worked for a few hours and then came home and ended up going to another friend's house to help put away some beer. now im here typing this lame entry in hopes that it might interest someone, anyone who might happen to stumble upon it. i should keep up with this thing more often and by more often i mean on a weekly basis, at least. school is going pretty well at the moment, my first major project of the semester is due on tuesday but i should be able to finish it this weekend. my other class starts on july 1st i think.. im pretty sure that class might kick my ass but luckily it is offered in the fall as well (with a professor that has a mathematical theorem named after him). hopefully i can pull a B or C out of the class. right now its almost 2am and im not really tired but i feel that i should get some sleep anyways. saturday i work 9 to 5 and sunday 10 to 4 and im gonna try to have some fun this weekend if at all possible. tomorrow night is maragarita madness (colada carnival) at mr margarita's so i might hit that up for a while. i also have like a pseudo-date tom night which i am incredibly nervous about. im pretty much a failure when it comes to women in general and my parents sometimes question my sexuality (in a joking manner). my mom is worried that she will never have grandkids since neither me, my bro, or sis ever go on dates or have steady significant others. im getting kinda bored of work now.. id like to do something in my field of study so i guess its about time that i write up a resume and try to find some internships or something. i grad in dec and im not sure what i wanna do with it. my dad asked me tonight what i want to do and i told him that i want to travel. he said i should join the navy for a few years and do some traveling and then i can get a job with fbi or something doing cryptography and other geeky things. that would be pretty sweet but anyone who knows me knows that my heart is in music. i think after i grad i wanna join a band, maybe play some gigs around town and who knows.. maybe one day we'll be big and i'll be a famous drummer. i love watching meet the barkers because travis is such an awesome drummer.. seriously the guy plays all day long (when he's not drinking). i could go on for hours about my love of music and drums but anyone reading this has already been preached to about it on my behalf. i suppose i should get some sleep.. so i hope everyone has an awesome month (since thats about how often i post nowadays) and good luck with what endeavours you will soon be undertaking.. i dunno where that came from but goodnight!

im still alive.. i promise!


so yeah its been a long while since you and i have gotten together so here's a brief update in my little world.  i think im still doing well in school this semester which really surprises me because i am quite accustomed to falling behind.. so yay for that!  i finally finished my room.. the walls are a green color and the ceiling was repainted white.. all my stuff is moved back in (including my drums! yessss!).  i bought a new dolby digital receiver so now my dvd player and surround sound are all set up and its a pretty dope set-up!  im glad all that work is done though.  ive been pretty stressed as of late with the house work stuff, school, work, schoolwork, blah blah.. you get the point.  im really looking forward to spring break.. even though ill have 2 take home tests to do.. maybe ill be able to squeeze in something fun.  john wants me to drive to dc for a concert with him and his gf on the 2nd but my group has a presentation to give on the 3rd and my car is still overheating so i dunno what will happen.. id like to go but who knows.  im trying to be more social i think.. ive been talking to people in the cs lab (where ive been spending much of my time) and getting to know people instead of just keeping to myself in a corner like i usually do.. im proud of me.. even if you aren't, but who wouldn't be, right?! right!  ok, i think im getting hyper or something from just typing this.. i need to get to bed!  tonight i went to taste of chaos with julie and my ex and another girl from work.. it was awesome but im super pissed that the ticket said the show started at 7pm.. apparently that translates to 530pm somehow so i missed 2 of the bands that i really wanted to see.. a static lullaby and underoath.. super pissed.. do you hear me!?!?!  is this thing on!?!  anyways, i had a great time while i lost my voice and sang along to almost every song.  it really surprised me that julie and my ex liked killswitch engage but its cool at the same time.. im teaching them well!  ok, im done now so im gonna get some sleep.. here's a pic of my new room to keep you entertained until my next post.  ciao!

a breath of fresh air..


ive been so busy that i pretty much just forgot about everyone and everything that wasnt associated with work or homework.  i finally finished my program and while it wasnt really complicated it was still quite a bit of work because of all the forms and intermediate steps required for the class.  i thought last semester was the hardest i had ever worked.. up until this semester started.  although im only taking 2 classes, the amout of work needed to succeed in them will quickly surpass the effort put forth in the fall semester.  im proud of myself that im actually somewhat motivated this semester and im keeping up on work and not turning assignments in late. 

enough of the boring stuff... my room is a greenish hue and a mess as you can tell from the pic below.  at the moment it doesnt contain a bad so i was sleeping on the couch downstairs.. it wasnt so bad but ill be glad to get my bed back and more importantly.. my entire room.  my drums are packed up in the garage so i cant play them at the moment which is a bummer but thats prolly a good thing.  if they were here id be tempted to play them and not do my work.  not too much else is goin on at the moment.. i have more work to do tonight but im exhausted from doing so much work this semester.. blah!  im all out of stories and other stuff to waste your time and mine with so i bid you all adieu!
