Well my summer break is getting to the half way point. What have I done with myself? Much less than I anticipated, that's for certain. The first weeks off were concentrated on a job search. I probably applied to about 9 different places and never got a call back. And so many applications nowadays are just so stupid involving these long multiple choice questions. Who is honestly going to admit that they hate people when applying for a job, or that they are not honest people like some of the questions ask. And then there are the questions that seem completely unrelated to the job like "Do you think the president can be trusted?". That was honestly a question I had to answer, and similar questions were on more than one application I filled out. I got really fed up with it and just stopped trying at that point. I think in my area restaturant work like bussing tables is the only option and I just can't get myself to commit to that after having experience with it and hating it to death. So a lot of my time earlier was spent feeling guilty and sorry for myself. But now I'm over that crap and just trying to enjoy the time I have left. At least I can make some money helping my dad with his company work at home. I got the whole rest of my life to work, right?
My days have been filled upby videogames, reading, guitar and piano playing, and tennis. I'm in a Warcraft 3 binge right now, which seems to occur every summer, and I continued my file on Final Fantasy X which I started last summer. I have still not finished a final fantasy game. As for reading, I went through some books that I already owned and of which I've read before, like the Ender series. The books after the most well known Ender's Game are vastly different and good in different ways. I also read some of Kurt Vonnegut's books like Breakfast for Champions and Timequake. I'd like to get more of his. Right now I'm caught up in the Harry Potter excitement, but the books are still fresh enough in my mind that I don't think I need to go through them again right now.
On the piano, actually the keyboard, I wish we had a piano, I've been trying to learn some songs other than the traditional Bach/Beethoven stuff that I have, like the main theme from Final Fantasy X and Victor's solo from the movie the Corpse Bride. It's rewarding being able to pick up songs from games and movies and have the ability to play them on my own. And it's a nice breakup from all the classical stuff that I use to practice with.
So that's what's up with me. We have a big event in Milwaukee going on called Summerfest that has a lot of different bands and music groups performing and I've been going to that. I saw Goo Goo Dolls the other day which was awesome, but I wish I had a closer seat. It was crazy packed! E3 is coming up so that is exciting. All the Harry Potter crazy is exciting. Rush Hour 3 looks to be as good as the first two. I just hope that my mom does well on her surgery this weekend. That's always scary. And why can't she ever get a break?
