One week

February 17th, 2013 (09:54 pm)

The past two weeks have been busy. With work and such, I haven't had much time to do anything else. We finally got down to Bowling Green for work today, which means I'll have to go back next Saturday. I 'm trying to be moved in by Saturday, but it's a chore. Not only do I have all of my shit to move, but mom just bought a house and I'll have to help her. I have about 80 percent of my shit done, just have to pack my clothes and shit that I'll need throughout this week, and my tv, xbox and blu ray. Mom on the other hand has a whole house to still move, not to mention the new house to paint. I'll be busy with that every week. I can't wait to be finished with all of that shit. Oh well, exciting things are happening. Going to watch this movie.

The events of yesterday can be summed up as a clusterfuck. This was the plan. Joey and I were going to go to the mall, then pick up Kris and go to 4th St. to meet up with the girls. We were at the mall, and Kris calls and wants to go get food. I go back to Joey's house and they go out to The Titled Kilt. Well, it closed two years ago. Was supposed to head down to 4th St. at 10. Well, I forgot my pants at my house, Kris forgot his id and they didn't get back to the house until 11. So we go get my pants, while Kris gets his id and we meet back at Joey's, only we have to wait on the girls to get there because they decided they wanted to ride up with us. So we pile into Joey's car and they're drinking fifths of vodka. No big deal, we knocked them out. Got to 4th St. at around 12. We're hanging out, drinking and having a good time. Joey and I go to the bathroom, and when I walk out my ex girlfriend and her friend are standing there, like they automatically knew I was in there. So my ex girlfriend being there with a girl I was trying to eff wasn't a good mix. One would get mad at me for talking to the other and vice versa. We tried plenty of times to ditch my ex, but we couldn't shake them. Chelsie decided she was going to go dance, so it was whatever. So her and her friend disappear. I get a text asking me to come save her, that these dudes wouldn't leave them alone. So I walk over there to grab her and we go back to the bar. A few minutes later, I look up and she's dancing with the dude again. So she gives me the "save me look" so I walk over there again. She goes over a third time, then texts me asking me to come get them. I look over and she's making out with the dude. A couple of hours later, we decide we're going to leave. Chelsie walks up and seems mad that I didn't keep going after her. She's like "I didn't want to make out with him, he kissed me and I didn't know what to do". It was whatever, told her to grab her friend that we were leaving. She walks over there for a few minutes, so Joey and Kris walk outside. I grab her on the way out, but her friend won't come, says she wants to stay so I tell her to get a cab. We leave, she keeps texting me telling us not to leave them, that she doesn't want to stay with them. She wants to come home with us. Long story short, after sitting out in the parking lot for thirty minutes, they finally come out. Kris and her friend decide they need to go to the bathroom and Chelise and I are sitting in the car. She starts talking about how she's pissed about the whole situation, that she wanted to leave. I tell her I'm pissed because we'd been trying to leave for two hours. We go back to Joey's, thinking that they are going to get in their car and leave. Nope, they decide they want to come in. Keep telling them to keep it down, but they wake up Joey's room mates. So now we have seven people up in the living room, four who are pissed. I just decide to go downstairs and sleep in the spare room. She keeps texting me asking me where I'm at. I'm through with it. I know who not to invite out now.

Yay for broken plans...

January 26th, 2013 (05:12 pm)

Was supposed to go to Bowling Green today for work, but my boss called me this morning and said that was cancelled. While I'll miss the overtime, I'm glad I didn't have to go down there. I was able to get a little bit done today. Did a load of laundry, cleaned the living room a bit and went to the grocery. I'm going to the mall in a few, then I'm going to do another load of laundry. I get to go out tonight, which should be exciting. Joey and I are going out, and I may get laid (not by Joey). I haven't went out with the intentions of just "smashing" in awhile, and I'm not even going to have to work for it. I may feel guilty about it afterwards, and may wake up tomorrow being like "can't believe I did that", but hey, live in the moment I guess.

Just sitting here jamming to Company of Thieves trying to decide if I want to go to their show in a couple of weeks. If it was a full band, I'd be there but it's an acoustic set. Eh. Waiting on Joey, so I suppose I should put on something other than sweatpants and a t-shirt.

The End of the Year

December 25th, 2012 (10:22 pm)

Another Christmas has come and gone, which means the year will soon end. To be honest, it flew by. Overall, it was actually a decent year for me. Some friends moved on, others came back into my life and I made some new friends as well.

The year seemed bad for relationships. My cousin Sara got a divorce. Her husband decided one day that he was going to leave and go live in Mississippi. I can't say it was a surprised. The one that really caught me off guard was my brother Matthew's. About a week ago she sent him a text saying she was unhappy. They decided to get a divorce. After a week, the decided that they were going to seek professional help and try to make things work.

I started a new job this year. While it wasn't the one I was hoping for, it's been a surprise. I actually like it. I feel a sense of worth again. I haven't felt that in awhile. The best thing that could've happened to me was getting out of that shitty motel. I'm only a few months away from a promotion that will change my life. I can't wait.

This year has especially been difficult for my family. We found out Jenny was pregnant, which is a miracle. Doctors told her for years that she wouldn't be able to have kids. Since she was pregnant, she wasn't able to take her depression medicine. She got real bad. When Cooper was born, there were complications and he spent a long time in the hospital. Thankfully, he is alright. He is a miracle baby. Uncle Tony has been unhealthy for awhile now. He's lost over 100 pounds and looks awful. Aunt Verna retires in August, and their plan was to move to Florida. He told me last night that he didn't think he would make it until then. Uncle Tony doesn't have kids of his own, just nephews. He treats us like his kids. He gives us money, and spends time with us even if Aunt Verna isn't around. He always tells us he wants to make sure we're taken care of. Unlike his nieces and nephews on his side of the family, we do things for him, and actually thank him for things he does for us. I can't even think about life without him. It'll kill my Aunt Verna. Jonathan, Matthew and I decided that we need to spend as much time with him as possible, and we need to help Aunt Verna with the transition. Uncle Bob isn't doing well either. He's getting older, and he's overweight. He's also a smoker. It sucks, because every time I see him with Cooper, he looks so happy. Uncle Bob looks scary, but he's one of the most thoughtful, nicest people I know. He helped me out when I was in trouble, and never once asked for anything in return. I don't like a lot of my family, but it seems like two I like the most aren't doing well.

I've became close to people I never really thought I ever would, while some friends that I never thought I could live without have become more distant. I can't tell you the last time I hung out with Kenny or Steven. Kenny and I used to hang out almost every day. However, with the ours we both work, and Kenny getting a girlfriend who lives an hour away, it's hard to spend time together. We still try to talk at least once or twice a week, but it's hard. Steven pops up every now and then, but I haven't hung out with him since early October. I've not talked to Jackie or Jen in probably five months. However, Sloan and Angela have became two of my best friends. I spend all day Sundays over there. We watch football, and she cooks dinner. I'm moving in with them soon. I'm close with Sloan's dad as well. He's a good man.

I didn't really have a meaningful relationship this year. I dated a few people, but never really felt that connection. I'm dating someone right now, but it's going real slow. She works nights, and I work days so we don't spend that much time together. It also sucks, because I don't want to bring her over here to dad's, and she lives with her mother. There's really no alone time. She's fun though, and I can actually tolerate eating dinner with her.

Things I need to do next year...
I need to see Derek. I've lost touch with him. He hasn't been home in over two years and I doubt very seriously that I'll get out there anytime soon. I think he's doing to be out there the rest of his life. It's hard, considering for three years, we were hanging out everyday, but each day I'm learning to live without him. That scares me.

Buy an Audi. I want one so bad. At this point, I don't care if it's an old A4. I just want one.

I've seen the Bengals and Reds play, but I've never seen a Suns game live, or a Michigan game live. I want to go to at least one of those games. Michigan doesn't play at Indiana next year, so that's out. The Suns will play a game in Indiana though, so here's to hoping I can get up and see it.

Get a new dog. Penny died this year, and I was sad. I loved that dog more than I love most people. Every now and then, I'll look over underneath the table thinking she'll be there. She wasn't the same dog she once was the past couple of years, but every now and then she would jump on the couch or lay on the floor beside it. She would let me pet her, show me that she was still sort of alive. She never once disappointed me, and that's more than I can say about any person in my life.

I'm going to jump off of here. Got to be up early for work. Can't wait until New Year's Eve. After work, I'm going up to Angela's parents in Dayton for a party.

December 12th, 2012 (09:46 pm)

It's been awhile since I've updated. Been a little busy with work and such. We won our game 28-13. Even though we wanted to run the score up on their asshole coach (because he ran it up on us in the regular season), we didn't. We had a couple of chances, but decided just to run the ball and run the clock. It was fun to actually coach kids who listen and do what they're supposed to do. It kind of got us excited about next year, until we realized that we probably will only win two games. Our kids, and a kid we took because his coach was helping us really were the only week spots. The Waggener kid stunted the wrong hole, and gave up a touchdown through said hole. Chico from our team forgot he was on an all-star team and reverted back to his old self, not hitting holes in the run game and Tobias missed a few tackles. Nate played well, and so did Sal. Our kicking game was our only strong part of the team all year.

Other than that, things are going well. I'm not missing basketball one bit. I get to come home from work and hang out, and relax and actually do stuff on the weekends. I went out last Friday, and on Saturday. Both were fun times. I've been spending my Sundays at Sloan's, watching football and shit. In the next week or two, we're going to start clearing out the basement so I can start moving my things in there. I need to buy a new tv. Can't decide if I want to put it in my bedroom or my living room. I've never had my own living room, so I've stayed in my bedroom. It'll be nice to be able to lounge on the couch without interruption. It'll also be nice to entertain without having to stay in my room. It'll be nice for us not to be cooped up in my room.

Anyways, I'm off of here.

Having friends who work at a bar is both a blessing and a curse. Gage sent me a text this morning telling me that he put me on his guest list with a plus five. We decided to go down to 4th St. This dude from work named Derek wanted to go out. I figured this would be a situation for me to decide if I actually wanted to hang out with this guy outside of work. He passed. We met Sloan and Angela at PBR. The end result was four people fed and drunk as hell with Sloan only spending $36, me spending $40 and Derek only spending $20. It didn't matter where we went, the wouldn't take our money. We had an open tab at Sully's and didn't even use it. Plus, I won a bet with Angela. The bartender who I used to work with is beautiful. To be honest, she has a nice rack and a super ass. Angela was like "it's easy to figure out why you like her, she has a big ass". I'm like, it's not that. She has one of the most beautiful pair of eyes I've ever seen. She's like, I doubt you even know the color of her eyes. I tell her. She's like, I bet you don't know the color of her eyes. I won. It was a pretty good night, and the weekend will only get better. Win or lose, tomorrow PRP plays for a state championship. They've had the best season in school history and I'm proud to say that I played football at PRP. Sunday is the all-star game that Dick and I are coaching. That's an accomplishment in itself. If we win, we'll coach the Battle of the Bluegrass in 2014, and win or lose we'll get a ring for that.

I'm getting off of here. Going to listen to music and attempt sleep. I'm so anxious for the weekend, I doubt I'll be able to get any sleep.

Bring On Next Week

November 24th, 2012 (08:35 am)

I've been to the state baseball championship, and to the state basketball championship. On Saturday, PRP will play for their first state title. I never thought I'd ever say that. All year I heard about how good PRP was, but never got to see it. Last night's game made me believe they could beat Trinity. We went down 14-0 in the first four minutes. Didn't phase them. They beat Eastern, who was the fourth ranked team in the state 61-21. It was amazing.

Dick was picked to coach the east team in the Louisville East/West game. He took Vic and I from our staff and a few coaches from other staffs. We meet our roster on Sunday and start practicing Monday. We play that game next Sunday. Can't wait.

Other than that, not a lot going on. Just work and xbox. I really don't have time for much else.

Sometimes it's hard to say the right thing, the right way on the hardest day of your life. Breathe in breathe out it'll be okay. Breathe in, breathe out, I know it's hard to say. And every year November gets closer, and every year it gets a little bit colder. Be strong, hold on, make it through the day. One step at a time. On foot in front of the other. I'm going to get through this, one way or another cause I know it's warmer where you are. No matter how far the view, I will always look up to you.

Hard work may pay off...

November 1st, 2012 (08:49 pm)
current song: Nightmare Of You-I Was Never A Normal Boy

Yesterday we were sitting around eating lunch and James started talking about how the shop loses about $5,000 a month because the parts manager doesn't know how to do an inventory. I tell him that I did retail inventory at Six Flags one year, and then he called me an idiot. Today, I was dragging ass, and pissed off about the fact that for the past two weeks, I've been doing three other people's jobs. I'm supposed to work 8:30-5 and all I'm supposed to do is drive cars back and forth and check cars in. I've been coming in at 7:30 to open the shop, washing cars, cleaning the shop, doing my job and closing the shop. I usually don't leave until 6:30. I'm not complaining about the hours, I'm complaining about the pay. When they fired two guys, and the other guy quit I told them I'd do the extra work for a raise. They said no. Well today James called me into his office to ask me what exactly I did at Six Flags, and what I did when I managed a bar. I told him. He said that he and Norman talked about something last night, and wanted to know if I was interested in becoming the parts manager. I'd do an inventory of the parts we already have collecting dust, set up a storage system and take care of the inventory. I told him there was no way I'd do it for what they pay me now. He said that if it happened, he would give me a pretty good raise. He said he would have no problem doubling my pay a few months down the road, once I got the hang out it and showed him that I could do it. I told him I'd need more information, a job summary and such. He said he would tell Norman that I was interested, and in the next week or two we'd sit down and talk about it. I'd much rather do that than what I'm doing now, and I'd much rather do that than actually learn how to do more body work.

Other than that, not much is going on. We went out Saturday for Halloween. Joey and I went out as Mormans. It was pretty fun. Moore football is over with, so my days are pretty boring. PRP starts the playoffs tomorrow night. I'm going to help dad with the chains, in hopes that we make the state championship game and I'll be able to do them at Cardinal Stadium. Dearman's bachelor party is Saturday, so that's something that should be fun. Tony is giving us a couple of lanes and good drink specials. Anyways, I'm off of here. Going to finish watching this Louisville game, shower and go to bed.

One more week!

October 22nd, 2012 (10:57 pm)
current song: The Gaslight Anthem-The Backseat

We went into the season thinking we had three guaranteed wins and two games that could go either way. The first half of the Southern game was horrible, but we made a comeback. After we beat Holy Cross, we had high hopes, and decided that we could beat Valley and hang with Doss. We knew Jeffersontown would beat us, and they did. We crushed Atherton and thought we had a little momentum. Western beat us pretty good, but we ended up losing our best player for the year. We thought we were going to beat Fairdale. If we would've had Izajah, we would've. Valley spanked us, so did Doss. At least we got the win on senior night against Waggener. We beat them by 24 points. Friday is our last game of the year. We didn't make the playoffs, and will finish 3-7. There's no way we're going to go to Manual and beat them on Friday. I'm expecting them to put up at least 70 points on us. It was a season of what could have been. We kicked off keys players and had others quit the team. I've never seen a bunch of kids not care about something so much. Dick says that's all kids these days. It wasn't like that at PRP. They actually care when they get beat, which is probably why they haven't lost a game yet, and will more than likely play for a 6-A title. And I've never seen an administration be so happy about a three win season. There's no pressure for us to win, because no one cares about football at Moore. They did compliment us and have been supportive all year though. They said our staff was the best they've had in probably 20 years. That our kids actually try, and that this year they were actually impressed with how our team behaves. I guess that's a start. We have maybe eight kids who actually care and give it their all every practice and every game. We just need about 20 more of those type of kids, and maybe we can build a decent 4-A program.

Other than that, I've been super busy. I'm always so tired. My plans seemed to have fallen through the past few weeks. Ramon was in town, but I didn't get to see him. Had two games that week. Didn't go to Nashville because of football. David had to be home on Saturday night to get the kids, so he had to leave early on Friday and I couldn't because I had the game. My days have came to waking up at 6am to go to work, and getting home around 8pm. Eat, shower, relax and sleep. It's not too bad though. I'm happy with my job, and I have my weekends to relax, hang out and catch up on my shows. I even got to go hang out with Jared on Saturday night.

The debate is over. Waiting on my clothes to finish drying and I'll probably get to sleep.
