Slowly coming along

Things here are slowly coming along. One, I am a bit lazy doing things…and I am sure you all know that by now and two, I am busy…again you all probably know that. But its all good if you ask me. I am working on getting some more features to this page and make it all jazzed up. Might do some random quotes on here from time to time. I have some books that might help me on that now. They are just really humorous books to me. Two of them are suspose to be self-help for being a "gentleman". Which is something I find totally funny here. Reading them when I came across them in some store in a mall this weekend made my holiday shopping that much better. And the other I have mentioned about why men have nipples and such.

In case you wondered, there are 6 photos left to be taken on my camera before I get the film developed. Hopefully that 6 doesn’t take too long. If not I may just go ahead and get them done to have the photos.

The semester here is winding down and I must say that is a good thing. Sure it makes me extra busy with exams and papers and such but really its all good and I am ready for this semester to finish. It is no secret that this hasn’t been the greatest semester here but I am in good spirits about things and am ready for a new semester. Hopefully the next won’t start out like this one did.

My grades could be anything at this point I feel. I know one A is for sure and that’s in my broadcasting class. Go figure right? haha But my other journalism class is crap. Total crap I tell you. I have to write a memo on what I feel my grade should be since the semester was a total mess up due to our class getting involved with this Hurricane Katrina thing. My memo will be interesting since I have gotten screwed over by a partner dropping and not knowing a damn thing about what was going on. Even if I asked the professor I got nothing. I will fight for an A here because of that. If I don’t get it, the Dean will hear from me about it.

My English class will be a tough one to guess. Right now it is somewhere between a B and a C based on how I have done. Sure I know I could have done more for it and read the material more but it really hasn’t been an interest of mine this semester. I try to get into it during class so maybe my participation points will help me at least get a B.

Then my sport psych class. This one is a tough cookie to crack really and truthfully I would settle for a C and be totally okay with it. I say that because it is a tough class and I like the teacher a lot. He is a good teacher really, because he makes it interesting even if it has been a bunch of theories about the same stuff over and over again. It isn’t easy stuff really but I have managed some decent grades in there and it could very well come down to the final in there which should be easier than the last couple tests.

Who knows, all I know is the semester is coming to a close and I am ready for next semester. I ran in to my broadcasting teacher for next semester Thursday night at the football game. She is a cool cat really, hopefully she will be good for this class. She taught my last BN class last spring so she knows me and knows I will put a good effort in this class compared to the one I am in now. On a side note too, I never realized how short of a person she was until standing on the sidelines with her. Ah well…haha

Its a little after 10 and it doesn’t even seem like that. Tomorrow is Monday but that never means much to me since I just work on Mondays. I should get paid tomorrow for this month so that will be a nice way to start the week. Yeah…

Photos coming soon

yeah all of my old photos are gone….really I got rid of them like yesterdays news.

so that only means new ones are on the way…I have actually taken some new photos recently, its only a matter of time before some of them get up on here…so hang in there…

tomorrow is sunday….another trip to pittsbugh is in the horizon…three times in five days yo…yeah…all with good reason though

post turkey day shizzle

Well Turkey Day was great, the whoopin of Pitt was great, and even getting up way to early to go shopping was great. All in all a great weekend with the family. Top it off I now have a new cell phone. No more slider action since really that phone was a piece of junk to most people’s eye’s, but hey it did have Tetris and my new phone you have to download and buy that. Oh well, still the new phone is nifty and I am enjoying it. It also has Bluetooth to it so now I can look like a complete idiot with the wireless headset.

I now have a great book to read. Yes, from time to time I actually like to read a book. But yes this is more of a humor book so its not a great novel but it does answer a lot of questions in life. It is entitled, "Why do men have nipples?" . I will leave it at that and just let you form you own answer to that great mystery. But really it has a lot of interesting questions and answers to them. It is the questions you want to ask your doctor or some sort of expert but never have the "balls" to do it or you aren’t drunk enough to do it.

Ah, today is Jerry West day in the university city, time to finally retire that ol’ 44. I hope its a nice ceremony for West since I won’t be attending due to a women’s game that I have to work after that. I will watch it on TV, depending on what they do on TV for it.

Happy Turkey Day

It’s that time of year, the time when we all get together and feast and feast….and feast until we cannot feast anymore. Thanksgiving. Or Turkey Day…or as one comedian calls it "Don’t Trust a White Man Day".

Anyways…whatever you call it, I wish you and yours a happy Thanksgiving.

Its snowing…

I think snow in November and December is great. It always looks nice for the holiday season but anything after New Years is just annoying.

Really…right now it looks so nice outside…so pretty…lol

Pre-Turkey Day Scramble

Okay, so the band mentioned below I decided to download their CD and just like the song it is a pretty tasty CD. Quite glad I made the purchase.

Today, I drove my grandparents to the airport in Pittsburgh. I’m glad I was able to do it really since I don’t get to spend nearly enough time with them these days. I believe most of the family was happy I did it too. It was really nothing, I just hope they made it safely today to Chicago and I am sure they will enjoy their time at my uncle’s. I get to do it again around Christmas time so it will be a nice way to spend a little time with them.

My parents come up here today which will be nice since I haven’t seen them much since the begining of the semester. Very glad my dad was able to get the day off on Friday because I don’t even know if I would have gone home these last couple days if he hadn’t. Sad to say that but it is true. Maybe I will be able to go home once before Christmas break. I haven’t even looked at the basketball schedules here at school to see if I would be able to. I want to go home but I know the experience I am getting is well worth my future. I know it will all pay off soon even though  I don’t see my family much.

Another note of interest, it is snowing up here right now. It is coming down nice and slow. Just flurries really and hopefully it stays that way until my folks get here because I know Route 19 is a mess when it snows. That is never fun really…

I must say I have enjoyed this week more than I expected to. I have finally gotten to relax and do nothing. It is nice to be able to relax for once I must say, I keep myself busy as most people know that but again its worth it.

Christmas is only 32 days away…did you know that? haha

Random Song Lyrics

Yeah…I don’t usually do this but I am totally addicted to this song by The Exit. So thought I would share at least it’s lyrical wonderfulness…some reason it sounds good to my ear and the words are funny to me.

BEGINNERS LUCK, WHITE LACE, IN AND OUT OF A SLEEP,
BEHIND A WHEEL, BLACK ICE, LIKE TO SCREAM, YOU DO IF YOU CAN FEEL,
THE GLASS BREAK, GLASS SHATTERING,
FIND YOUR ANGEL, LOSE YOUR HEARTBEAT,
EVERYBODY, YOU GOT TO DO SOMETHING RIGHT;
IF YOU FIND LOVE, HOLD ON TIGHT.

DON’T PUSH YOUR LOVE AWAY, DON’T PUSH YOUR LOVE AWAY,

A LITTLE OLD WALK ON MY WAY BACK HOME,
I GET A CALL FROM A FRIEND ON THE TELEPHONE,
HE SAYS COME HERE, I GOT THIS GIRL TO SEE,
BUT, BEWARE, LOVE ISN’T ALWAYS FREE.
UPON FIRST GLANCE I GOT SO HUNGRY,
FORBIDDEN FRUITS; YOU’VE GOT TO TASTE THEM,
I TOOK ONE BITE; WE ALL TAKE CHANCES…
POISON LIPS; DOOMED ROMANCES,

DON’T PUSH YOUR LOVE AWAY, DON’T PUSH YOUR LOVE AWAY,

THE KISS OF DEATH UPON THE DOOR,
THAT’S WHAT YOU GET FOR TAKING HOME A WHORE.
I SHOULDN’T SAY THAT; IT DOESN’T SOUND NICE,
FAITH REMOVES MY FEAR SOMETIMES.
I’M TOO SHY, YOU’RE TOO SHARP,
TOGETHER WE COULD WORK EACH OTHER OUT.
LOVE’S TOO QUICK, SHE’S ALWAYS BEEN,
WE’RE IN YOUR BED, DRUNK WITH ADRENALINE,

DON’T PUSH YOUR LOVE AWAY, DON’T PUSH YOUR LOVE AWAY,

AND I CAN SEE BETTER DAYS, WE CAN SHARE, LOVE CAN SAVE/
OR YOU CAN HIDE IN THE SELF, OR WE CAN GO OUR SEPARATE WAYS,

AND I’VE SEEN BETTER DAYS PASS ME BY IN A HAZE.
YEAH I"VE SEEN BETTER DAYS PASS ME BY IN A HAZE.

I’VE SEEN BETTER DAYS… I’VE SEEN BETTER DAYS…

DON’T PUSH YOUR LOVE AWAY, DON’T PUSH YOUR LOVE AWAY,
DON’T PUSH YOUR LOVE AWAY, DON’T PUSH YOUR LOVE AWAY,

DON’T PUSH…

It may not be the greatest song in the word but for some reason it fits me right now. Plus musically it is a funky good time. Download it now…its free on  iTunes.

Quick Happy

Nothing like a quick happy to throw at ya.

Happy 17th Birthday to my little cousin Morgan. Yes, 17…hard to believe, I know. I sent her a nice shirt for the day…a good ol’ Morgantown shirt. Yes…she loved it and so she should since I live and go to school in the town that bares her name.

give me a few

just give me a few here….i’m in the process of moving hosts here. Its been a crazy couple of days…the struggle to find my old files and then the process of deleting them when they returned to me.

 

keep checkin’ back…though things are changng around the ol’ 6…but its going to be worth it
