I don't really have any friends on this anymore, so I should delete my account, right?

I hate when you're having a good time, don't want it to end, and end-up pissing someone off because they don't bother to mention anything until after its too late.

I am officially homeless! Woo hoo! I got to the hotel in California, checked my email to find out when I was going to meet and sign a lease tomorrow, and found out the apartment in question was actually rented to someone else yesterday.

I have hotel reservations for a week to hopefully find a place.

The older I get the more awkward I find the situations I am placed in.

Am I really that creepy? I guess I'll find out in California when I get there Sunday night.

Complacent doesn't have to be positive... [12 Aug 2009|09:50pm]
[ mood | complacent ]

I haven't posted in a while, and while I don't think I'll ever refer back to any of my posts to remind myself of my own trials and tribulations (or spots of immense joy for that matter), I'm posting anyway.

I may have a place to live in California. It will be on campus, and it will be the smallest space I've ever had to live in, but I have a place to live. And my job/assistanceship have not dried up, so I can afford to go.

I'm kinda bummed that I won't see anyone I know from the East Coast for awhile. I know I'll be back in town in March for a wedding, but after that I don't know.

My folks are talking about moving to Florida, so I may not even have a place to come back to in NC.

Gosh-darn-it!

I thought I could be Vice President, but this whole Governor of Alaska thing isn't for me. It's too cold don't-cha-know.

Musical [05 Feb 2009|11:02pm]
[ mood | morose ]

I can't listen to Les Miserables without tearing up. It always gets me. 3 years after the first time I actually bothered to listen to it, I find it to be just as powerful.

That said, I've been thinking about writting a musical of my own.

The whole premise is based around a self-rightuous guy that is nausiating in his self-rightuousness. His name is Byron Goodley, and he "is a goodly man." As he goes around doing self-appointed good, a demon notices Byron. Seeing the chance for some fun, the demon whispers secrets and small snipits of the future to Byron. He finally convinces Byron that he is in fact Satan.

Byron, initially skeptical, finally concedes that he is the embodiment of the prince of darkness. Thus he sets out on his quest to rule the world. Meanwhile, the real devil takes note of Byron and his massive group of followers. Finally he and his hellspawn rise against Byron and his followers.

After a climactic battle, Satan realizes that Byron has merely been tricked by one of his own demons, and leaves Byron to bear witness to the carnage that he inadvertently caused.

Well, I have an answer. The problem is the answer was no.

I'll never know whether or not I could have been competitive at a top 10 ranked chemistry program however, because 2 of my 3 recommenders put said recommendation on the back-burner. I suppose that is in a way a preview of the quality with which I could have expected. But for anyone who cares, I won't be moving to Madison. And apparently most of the programs I thought had later deadlines do not... so it looks like I probably won't be heading to graduate school.

Damn, time to find a real job. Oops, there aren't any.

Reasons why you shouldn't read personals:

"i want a fat old man that smells like bengay and lays around my house and makes me feed him applesauce.

no hair, or balding.
eats prunes

has a strong distrust for door to door sales people, they are only posing and will in fact eat your soul...

so if your between the ages of half dead and foot in the grave...please get your hospice nurse to reply to me.

hope to see you soon, wrinkles....bowchickawowow...yeah"

Either this is from someone very cruel, or very sick!

Also, I'm considering taking bets on whether or not my research advisor will get around to submitting letters of recommendation for me by their respective deadlines or not. If I win, maybe I can get the money back I will have wasted on application and GRE score request fees.

I've heard far too many people say they are proud of our country for electing Barack Obama president. I am disappointed in our country because of the elections.

Not because Barack Obama won, but why he won. From my personal experience I'd say 1 in 10 people who voted for Barack Obama had a solid reason. Of course this is better than the people I know who supported McCain, which averaged about 1 in 20.

The issues were mostly ignored in this election. I didn't vote and I'm proud of that. I didn't have enough information to make what I felt was a well informed vote. There were so many answers to questions I didn't have, and the materials available didn't help me make what I felt were necessary distinctions. Debates? The few I got to watch were pretty much worthless to me.

I blame two groups for my lack of information. First the media, for continuously feeding America with otherwise worthless information. Second, I blame the candidates themselves for losing sight of what was really important. As far as I'm concerned Obama lied to the public. He can't bring change because he couldn't even keep the people he was paying from playing politics as usual. And while McCain I think would've been a decent moderate, the decision to put Palin on the ticket completely nullified his platform, as she disagreed with him on a number of key issues. He would've been better off with Joe (not the plumber).

4 Years from now I'm just waiting for Hillary to be there saying "I told you so!"

I didn't have anything to post today, but I changed my mind. Right before I clicked the magical x of window closing, I saw an add which read "Find out if he's cheating: Ask a Psychic."

Alright.

Or you could, ya know, ask him. If he's skitish about the subject than he probably is, or has at least been thinking hard about it. And if his answer sounds rehearsed... then again it probably is. I believe we'd have an easier time if people spent more of their time being direct.

Tom: Do you think I'm a douchebag Jimmy?
Jimmy : Well... actually yeah, you are.

Look at that, now Tom knows how Jimmy feels about him. Instantly six months of phoney ass-kissing are vaporized.

Stupid People [12 Sep 2008|02:13pm]
I hate stupid people. And there are a lot of them. Most recently I got bitched at for "giving someone a poor representation of them" blah blah blah. First of all, I had no idea what they were talking about. And since giving specifics would probably make WAY too much sense, I didn't get any of those either.

My simple response here is, I won't tell a lie about you, so if you don't want to be represented in a negative light, don't do things for other people to represent you negatively. If you do its your own fault.

Well, any chance of the democratic party getting my vote this year just flew out the window.

I hope a vote for Green isn't actually a waste this election.

WWIII [18 Aug 2008|09:49pm]
Yes, World War III.

Its on the way. We may be able to stave it off for a few decades, but the pressure will probably just keep building.

I think I'd like to write a novel about it. Maybe a trilogy or some other series. Who knows, fifty years down the road perhaps I will be heralded as a prophet for accurately chronicalling the future campaigns. Or maybe world leaders will end up reading my book and thinking, "Hey, that sounds like a good plan!" Either way, world events almost remind me of 1936.

It pisses me off that whenever someone feels the need to comment negatively against Obama it has become customary to include "I'm not racist, but" in the statement. Whether Obama is "playing the race card" or not is a worthless point. Enough of his supporters and the media have already drudged it up plenty. I remember seeing Obama on the cover of Ebony with the caption "Finally, our Canidate," or something similar. I knew right then that there was no race card to pull, its always been about race. And likewise, it was never about gender for Hillary (collectively anyway). Anyway, just had to put that out there. I refuse to let anyone who feels the need to include "I'm not a racist" in their discourse finish their point to me the next time I hear it.

With more celebrity news

"She Didn't Tell" [01 Aug 2008|07:43pm]
I didn't know and she didn't tell
And now my life's gone completely to hell
Oh I didn't know and she didn't tell
Got caught in her guile, now I'm a pedophile

Met her at the club and she seemed so right
Who knew she'd call the cops later that night
Oh I didn't know and she didn't tell
Now I'm headed off to jail

And how could I have known?
It was a fake ID she'd shown?
Come on give me a break
I'm not the only one who made the mistake!
Why must I be the one who has to pay?

I didn't know and she didn't tell
Now I'm with some loathsome creeps inside a cell
Oh I didn't know and she didn't tell
Why's that guy called Bubba lookin' at my tail?

Later with my lawyer sitting in the court room
Waiting for the jury to deliver my doom
Oh I didn't know and she didn't tell
Convicted now I'm off to prison and I don't feel well

And I guess I might have known
She didn't really look full grown
God why'd I have to be born a man?
Why couldn't I have just used my hand?
I can't believe the world works this way...


Because being labeled a sex offender when the girl was drinking underage and giving off all pretenses of being of legal age shouldn't happen. But it does, often. Feel free to leave feedback, I'm working on this as a song, so I'm interested in what people think of it.

Fix You [01 Aug 2008|07:33pm]
"I wish I could fix you, and make you how I want you. I wish I could fix you, and I wish you could fix me.

I wish I could heal you, and mend where you are broken, I wish I could heal you, and I wish you could heal me."

I wish I could fix someone, maybe even multiple someones. Actually by "fix" I mean return to a previous point. The thing that sucks about relationships is that you never date the same person indefinately. You change, they change, the dynamic changes. And I for one think that sucks.
