I have heartache.

by on

So, yeah, I have heartache. :(

I won't explain too many details, but essentially, it comes down to this. I met a girl. She lives far away. We seem to connect and enjoy talking to each other. I want to talk to her every single second of my day. There's this emotional pain, heartache. She gets me/understands me. I've cried about her. I stay up at night just thinking of her.

I find everything else in my life meaningless compared to her. I've lost my interest in games, and only find enjoyment out of talking to her. I listen to music to get my mind off of her. I get frustrated easily, and find myself punching my pillow a lot.

I don't even know how to express it really anymore.

And now, I want to cry. :(

Blogging is addictive!

As the title foreshadowed, this is a new blog!

It's 1:55 AM, and I've got class in the morning. Though, I have a feeling like I will just drink some water and stay up. I don't have anything "hard," or busy today, so I can stay up. It always seems like I'm posting blogs when it's very late or at an unusual time.

Lately, I've been thinking about my mom, whom I love dearly. She is very high on a transplant list waiting for a pair of lungs due to Pulmonary Fibrosis. I'm sorry, but I'm too lazy and sad to describe it, so go to webmd or goole health and look it up. Pray for her please, and if you're not religious, well, have good thoughts for her I guess.

I've cried about her several times this week, and sometimes I just can't get her off my mind. I don't really know what to blog about since I'm half asleep, but this just helped.

I'm at a crossroads

by on

Alright, well, I figured it was time for a new blog. Plus, I like blogs, don't you? I hope I can entertain you, or catch your interest enough with my dilemma.

Anyways, as previously stated (I believe?), I am an 18 year old, attending University, and I haven't decided on a major/field of study yet. I've got some candidates, and I want to know your thoughts. My candidates are Psychology, Sociology, History, Political Science, or Journalism.

I'm currently in Introductory courses in Psychology and Sociology, but Psychology has scared me off a little. There's talk about statistics and more data than I expected. I took an Advanced Statistics course at my high school, and I got college credit for it, but I hate math, and I want to avoid it. I mean, what would be good for me in Psychology then? I like both of my courses though, it's just that Psych. has scared me off a little due to the "data-driven," nature of it. Is it all data-driven?

As for History and Political Science, well, I like them both a lot and they both interest me. I like to keep involved in Politics, and History is something I like to learn about. The Journalism sort of came out of nowhere, but honestly, my dream job would be a video game reviewer for IGN, Gamespot, or some other video game news source, or to be a Sports Journalist. Now, I DON'T want to be a broadcaster, but I'd like to be a Print Journalist.

However, I've often questioned Journalism, because it seems like a hard field to get into/advance in, and the pay doesn't seem too good.

Anyways, any thoughts are appreciated, as always.

What are you doing this weekend?

by on

Well, whoever reads this blog, what are you doing this weekend?

For myself, the weekend started after I got out of class today from my Intro. to Psychology class. Since then, I have, browsed the web, then took a nap, missed out on dinner, and have just generally been on my computer since then. Nothing too special I guess.

Tomorrow, Saturday, I don't really have anything planned. Tenatively, my schedule is to wake up, maybe watch some TV and check my email, and then do homework. I have homework due Monday, and well as my first test in my Psychology class, so I will do a lot of studying and reading this weekend. Oh, but first and foremost, I have to do my laundry tomorrow. :lol:

Sunday will probably be the best day/most interesting day, because we have a US Congressman coming to our campus to speak. I'm very excited, since I'm part of College Democrats here on my campus, and I am actually an Officer in the club. Then after that event, I will probably just study and read some more.

On a side note, I receieved NCAA Football 11 and Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising in the mail today from Amazon, and I'm very excited to play them. I've also started to read Fyodor Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment and I'm only about 5 pages into it, but I cn tell I'm going to love it.

Anyways, to my readers, I hope you have a good, safe, and enjoyable weekend. :)

An amusing time to start my first blog.

by on

So, currently it is 4:23 AM here. I am sitting in my dormitory's lounge, where I have stayed up all night. The reason being? Too much Mountain Dew in my system, along with many gummy bears.

Honestly, this has never happened to me, so I am quite surprised. However, I have these caffeine pills (Are they bad?) that I used to stay awake so that my sleep pattern wouldn't get messed up. Plus, I'll take a sleeping pill later tonight when I go to bed, even though I'll probably be very tired anyways.

As this is my first blog though, I should probably give a little background, shouldn't I? Well, my name is Logan. That's not a fictional name or fantasy name, it's my real name. It's not a common name, but I like it. It's easy to pronounce, which is good. And, it's short, which is also good. I was born in Maryland, and lived there for a year and a half until my family and I moved to Illinois, because my mom or dad got a better job, plus all of our family and relatives live in Wisconsin or Minnesota, so we were going to move back soon anyways, from what my parents have told me from stories.

I was born in Maryland because at that time my mom or dad, don't remember which, had a good job there, but as I stated, a better one came up later in Illinois. We lived in our house in Illinois for 6-7 years until we moved back to Minnesota, and I was 8 years old when we moved there. We haven't moved since, and my parents probably never will until they retire. We like it here. The people, placement, and our close proximity to family is nice too.

Oh, and I mentioned my brother...Just kidding. This isn't some melo-dramatic story about me with a weird brother.:lol:

My brother is 22, 4 years older than me. (Yes, I am 18. Good job, you know some math.) He's awesome though, and he's a fun brother as well as someone who I can look up to. I love everyone in my family. My mom, dad, and brother. I can all ask them different questions or problems I have in life, and I value each of their opinions.

Now for my current situation. I'm 18, as I stated before, and I am now in college/university, whichever you prefer to call it. It is a 4 year college though, for those of you who are wondering. Anyways, my University is in Minnesota too, and I love the town it's in. Very beautiful. I'll post some pictures sometime later.

I'm undecided on a college major right now, but I'm really into the social/human sciences, such as Psychology, Sociology, History, Political Science, and Philosophy. Also, I'm considering Journalism, but I'm concerned about Journalism as a career. Any tips?

As for my entertainment purposes, I own an Xbox 360 and a Macbook Pro. My gamertag is Logan1616, and just drop by a friend request or message sometime if you want. Going back though, my Macbook plays all my music wonderfully, and my 360 is for gaming and Netflix. I absolutely love games, music, and films. I can't decide which I like best, and sometimes that bothers me because I feel like I always have to have a set pattern, such as I like this thing #1, this thing #2, and this thing #3.

If you can't tell already, sometimes I can go off on sidetracks. I've taken some online assessments/tests regarding Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder, also known as OCPD, and all of the tests state that there are many indications that I may have Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder. Now yes, a lot of these are just "guesstimations," as one might say, but I'm still going to take them into my doctor.

That's really all I can think of right now. And now it is 4:37 PM. That means I have spent 14 minutes writing this blog. I feel proud. Now, I will leave you all with a picture of me I took 25 minutes before writing this blog. And I'll try to write a blog at least once a week!

Thanks for reading. :)
