my job is the shit. im making buttloads of money. gonna be able to pay off my dad before the end of the year. should be able to buy a decent car before i go back to school in april.

priced out my wii yesterday. the console, an extra remote, an extra nunchuk, a classic controller and four games (not to mention the free one that's bundled with the system) is gonna run me $530. thats still $70 less than a ps3. hahaha. bye sony, thanks for playing.

oh and also. devin weitzman and i will be gone november 4th through 10th. we're drivng down to los angeles to see modest mouse four times in five days. with a little side trip to tijuana. jealous? i would be too.

oh yeah, i have a livejournal. forgot about that.

let's see... painted houses for a bit after camp was over. got paid a week late. fuck that asshole john bak.

now i rip up carpet in office buildings. i worked 26 hours last week. doesn't sound like much but that was over a period of only two days. loooong days. its not that bad tho, half the time we're driving around and i'm riding in the back of the semi, asleep on top of a mountain of carpet. and i'm makin 11 an hour. ka-fuckin-ching.

i wanna go back to school...

camp's over. i'm home. or whatever i call redmond. already i feel that same hopelessly trapped feeling. could it be that that's all a home really is though? someplace that you name positively to distract yourself from the fact that you can't escape?


no one told you when to run
you missed the starting gun

i dont even remember the last time i posted in here. in case you didnt know, ive been working at a summer camp for the past month. and ive turned into a giant hippie. its paradise up there. i feel more at home there than i do here. im sad there's only 3 weeks left.

there's only so much you can type in a box without sounding emo as fuck. probably why i don't update this thing anymore.

for those of you who remember vivek, i'm buying his car today. 1981 datsun 210, 150k miles, still runs fine. 400 bucks. go me.

which means i get to go look for another job. something part time. evenings. something like that. so that when i start at nintendo, i can either quit or keep working there and work like 60 hours a week. i'd make so much fucking money i think i'd shit myself.

joan's out of town till the 3rd and i have my house to myself. at least until gina comes home. it's been pretty crazy here... there's at least 5 smoking devices scattered throughout the inside and backyard. we've had 3 fires in the last 4 nights. my firewood's almost gone.

i'm getting screened for add on monday. something my parents should have taken care of years ago. my whole life i've never been able to focus on anything for more than 20 minutes at a time, and even then my concentration is... gapped. i was able to make it through school by bullshitting but that sure as hell didn't work down in san diego and it's damn sure starting to become an issue in the working world.

waiting for a start date from nintendo. they have no idea. haven't worked more than a week. i can't afford to not have a week's pay. i've got one paycheck left from wendy's and then i'll have zero income. hopefully it'll last me.

the high e snapped on my guitar, so i figured i'd just restring the whole thing. but then the new d string snapped. so i threw the old d on there and started to tune it... and the new high e snapped. so now i'm back where i started. those strings that came with the guitar were shit though... anybody got any reccomedations for brands? i want something that won't snap the second i put it on the guitar and that sounds clean and crisp.

still single. big surprise there.


who wants to help me write a cartoon?

mandatory minimum sentences are bullshit. and i know it's hella random of me to say it, but think about it. seems a little unconstitutional to me. i dunno. weird things cross my mind when i'm sleep deprived and pulsing with thc.

work the last few days has been really easy because i stopped caring. with only a week left there, i figure me slacking way the fuck off is in order. i mean... what're they gonna do, fire me?

got endfest tickets. im stoked to see red hot chili peppers, but really my interest is in modest mouse. the second i heard they were playing, i knew i had to buy a ticket. it was required by law. seriously. i'll show you the court order.

sold my skis on ebay for 75 bucks. *sigh*... oh well, my dad said he might give me his old ones. which are incredibly nice.

and there is a car in my not-too-distant future. i'd say within 6 months. maybe sooner. and it'll be all mine too. paid for with my money. that i earned. which is a good feeling.

i quit yesterday. there is no better feeling in the world than telling your boss that in two weeks you'll never have to take their shit again. after the 10th, no more wendy's for me. ever. again.

nintendo's a done deal. i start anytime between the 12th and the end of the month. they don't know yet. but still. you know you're jealous.

so now i'm rolling a joint to celebrate. in fact, quit reading this so i can finish.

it's hard to finish the last three hours of a closing shift when your dad calls on your break and tells you that your grandfather has passed away earlier that morning. the whole what-happens-after-you-die thing isn't really covered by agnosticism, so i can't say something like "he's in a better place" or "he's in god's hands now". so i really don't know what to say. or feel. i wish i'd seen him more. or talked to him more. or something. been born earlier. fuck. i dunno. it's tough. he's the closest person i've known who's died. and he won't be the last. but that's life. that's just what happens. you live, then you die. but that doesn't mean i don't still miss him.

you were a good man karl. i won't soon forget you.

I remember when I lost my mind
There was something so pleasant about that place
Even your emotions had an echo
In so much space

And when you're out there
Without care
I was out of touch
But it wasn't because I didn't know enough
I just knew too much

Does that make me crazy?
Does that make me crazy?
Does that make me crazy?
Possibly...

My heroes had the heart
To build the life I want to live
And all I remember
Is thinking I wanna be like them

Ever since I was little it looked like fun
It was no coincidence I've come
And I can die when I'm done

But maybe I'm crazy
Maybe you're crazy
Maybe we're crazy
Probably.

for everyone that asked, x3 was amazing. leagues better than the first two.



lots of bad shit happened today involving paperwork and whatnot. i hate not having a car. it seriously makes everything so fucking difficult.


on a brighter note, i might not have to pay my dad back so much money. we'll see.

biking everywhere isn't as bad as it would sound. but when it's been raining and you happen to be running late for work, the slightest little tap on the brakes can be a disaster. case in point: this morning. i was going somewhere between 15 and 20 miles an hour when this idiot comes out of nowhere on his bike on the wrong fucking side of the road. so i brake and try to turn out of his way, which leads to my back tire skidding and me diving onto the street and sliding a few feet on my stomach. i wanted to beat the shit out of the guy but i had to get moving or i'd be even later.

work sucked as usual.

i'm in a general 'fuck-the-world-and-everyone-in-it' mood at the moment.

although in the next week and a half or so i'll be getting about 600 bucks from various places. so that'll be nice.

i really don't want to go to work today. my granddad's not doing to well and it's a real strain on my grandmother. it's really weighing on me and i don't think i could function. hard to make burgers or take orders when your mind is elsewhere.

i also found out that my ua came back positive. fuck omni. i wasted 40 bucks on that shit. wasted. wasted. i can't afford to waste money right now. i left a message for the guy at nintendo, telling him there was no way that was correct and asking if there was any way i could retake the test or something. so there's still a slight chance this might work out but... i dunno. i'm pretty disappointed and pissed off about it.

the world sucks.

i chopped so effing much wood today. and i'm only like halfway done. good news is though that now i've got a massive stack for any future fires. and when i'm done with the whole pile... i should have enough to last the whole summer.

also, a large chunk of wood flew up and hit me in the face. so now my right jaw is minorly scratched and a little bruised. doesn't really hurt at all, it was more of a gigantic shock. cuz honestly, how often does one get hit in the face with a log?
