Merry Christmas everyone!

by on

Holy crap, it's been a long time since I've written one of these...

Well, it's Christmas now, and you all are either still sleeping or are busy ripping open gifts and spending time with family, but I'd like to take the time to wish you all a Merry Christmas full of love, happiness, food, and, of course, great gaming! =] Hope you all get what you want, and even if you don't, at least be happy that you are spending this time surrounded with the people that you love. And if that's not possible, at least be happy that there are others out there in the vast internets (like elblanquito) that thought enough of you to write this little message. So Happy Holidays!!

A little gift to brighten your day:

The pressure's on.

Heading for the final few weeks of this semester and it's worrying me a bit. See, last semester I only took 2 classes because I was feeling a bit on the lazy side and didn't want to be burdened with a lot of work. Problem was, I still got lazy and ended up failing a class which sent my GPA into a nosedive. I was sent a letter from my school saying that if I don't pick it up back up to minimum standards, they're going to academically dismiss me. I'm in danger of being fired from school! :(

I know I'm a better student than this, so I don't know why I put myself in this position, but now I have no choice but to put my all into these classes I'm taking and somehow come out with stellar grades and save my academic career. I got off to a bit of a rough start, but I really have done a lot better. It's a wonder how much studying actually pays off... Currently I'm taking a Neuroscience class (awesome class, a bit on the difficult side though) and an Industrial/Organizational Psych class (boring as hell). Was taking a math course, but that's the one I got burned on last semester so I dropped that. I aced both my midterms *pats self on back* so I put myself in a good position to get at least a B+ in both classes, but I'm still feeling the pressure of having to get over an 85 on both finals in order to get that B+ (or better). Luckily, my prof. in that I/O psych class really doesn't want to fail anyone, so he told us that the highest grade we've gotten on either of our exams will count as the majority of our grade (over 50%)!! **** yeah!! That just leaves that Neuroscience final....

So, yeah, I think I've gotten a few more gray hairs over the course of this semester. :P

Other than, things have been going pretty good. Job is still a bit sucky. Working as a security guard in a condominum isn't the greatest, nor the best paying, but I've really come to enjoy the people I work with. A lot of the homeowners there are really nice too (even if a few don't know my name and confuse me with another guard that worked there...). There are some really beautiful women there too. :) I've also come to find out that a couple of them have a crush on me. =) The rules at my job forbid any kind of fraternizing, but I'm still going to see if I can work my magic.

On the gaming front, I'm absolutely loving Bad Company 2! I've been having so much fun I've completely forgotten about Metal Gear Online (for the time being anyway). Just waiting now for Lost Planet 2 and I'll be set for awhile, especially with a few other games I still have to finish. Not sure what other big game is coming out after that one though...

Well, I guess that's all for now. Been a long while since I've written one of these so I thought I'd share a short summary of my life since then. Later peoples.

I've finally entered into next-gen gaming! Yay!

by on

Can it still be called "next-gen"? I dunno. Maybe it's just "this-gen" for most everyone, but I've been on the outside looking in ever since these new batch of consoles launched, so it all feels so new to me.

But that feeling of being left out is no more. After spending a couple weeks trying to track one down, I finally was able to buy myself a PS3 this past weekend. :) I don't own a credit card, so buying one online was out of the question, so I had to wait patiently as every store I went to was out of stock. I mean, Best Buy, Gamestop, Target, Kmart, Toys R Us, all of 'em were sold out of the thing. After I got out of class on Saturday, I just said, "What the hell, let me try again," and I went to the mall, stopped by Target, and was surprised that they had one left! Man, I whipped out my cash, tucked it safely under my arm, and was out of there like a running back going for the end zone! I was so excited to just get home set it up, and start playing. Only have one game for it so far: Metal Gear Solid 4, which I bought back when the game launched almost 2 years ago! To say I was happy to finally play is an understatement. I mean, I'm not gonna lie, I think I felt a tear running down my cheek once I saw Snake lighting up that cig during the install. :P

So, yup, I've been enjoying myself these past couple of days. Kinda want to prolong the experience with this game since I'm such a fan of the series. But I also want to pick up some of the older games that I've missed like Resistance, Uncharted, and Assassin's Creed, and a few others I can't think of right now. (If any of you got any ideas which ones I should pick up, let me know.) I also got it so I can pick up GoW3 next month. Can't wait for that one. Still debating whether I want to get the Ultimate edition though.

Anyway, I'm also glad I got it since it provides a nice distraction for a few hours before bed. Especially since I've had trouble falling asleep the past week thanks to Paranormal Activity. Finally bought it and watched it last Sunday. I'm not really a fan of horror movies, but I wanted to see it because of all the buzz it generated. Don't know what the hell I was thinking. :( It's just so damn freaky/scary. I'm not gonna spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it yet. If you are planning on seeing it though: don't. Seriously.

That's all for now. I'm off! To game some more!

Well Happy New Year everyone!

by on

Yeah, yeah, I know it's already a week since we rang in the new year but I haven't been on in a long while and haven't made a new blog in an even longer while, so I'm saying it now. BTW, Merry Christmas as well. :P

Anyway, hope all is going good for you in this first week of the new year. Looking forward to seeing what this year has to offer, hoping I can improve on what was a good 2009 and make great things happen this year. Expecting to find myself a better job this year, do better in my classes, finally join a gym, go visit somewhere fun and exciting (Vegas, maybe), find a great girl that's worthwhile, maybe even try skydiving (I was contemplating doing that for my birthday last year), and just let go a little and enjoy myself more this year. And yes, those are resolutions. So far I haven't started on them just yet but hey, it's a long year, still plenty of time. :P I don't start classes again until the end of the month, so other than work, I don't have much else to do so I'm feeling a little lazy.

....Come to think of it, maybe this is the perfect time to get things going. Just gotta get up and go!

Well, don't I feel like an ass...

Funny story. All this time I've wondered about how I can talk to this girl and apologize for what happened a while ago, and yesterday I finally got my chance. Not in person though. I found her profile on Facebook by accident while looking up some old friends from back in the day. I thought this was a good opportunity to just send her a message and tell her what happened. It ended up coming out longer than I anticipated but I wrote an apology email/letter and hit "submit." This morning I get a reply and, Lord help me, she writes back, "Yeah, that was pretty long but honestly I have no clue what you're talking about. Lol." :|...........:lol: I read that message like 5 times and couldn't help but laugh at myself each time. I was like, "WTF??" All that anxiety for nothing. I did feel kinda stupid though, I'll admit. I felt good I got it off my chest but that was the last thing I was expecting to read.

She did add me as a friend though, so I guess all is good. No more worries. I just wrote back and, in short, my response was basically, "LOLWUT?" Not those exact words but you get my drift. Before I sent that reply I just told her to pretend like it never happened (that whole apology letter....thing. I think that's the last time I'll get so worked up over a woman because usually what we sometimes think is a big deal, sometimes really isn't. Oh well, so that's that. I'm still gonna try asking her out though. She's sexy... :)

Aside from that, I did get to go to the Yankees victory parade. It was friggin' cold that morning but there were so many people there that our combined body heat kept us warm. Not to mention I was behind these two girls I'm pretty sure were lesbians because they kept rubbing on each other....sensually, and kissing each other. A lot. So that.....also kept me warm. :P It was fun though. People kept throwing around toilet paper, some got yelled at by cops, we booed them when they did. It was cool. There some dumbasses who threw a full gatorade bottle at a float, nearly hitting a mascot, but other than that things were calm. At least where I was at. Heard some people set fire to some of the paper and confetti on the streets further down the parade route. I took some nice pics too, since I had a great view near the front of the crowds. I'll see about posting some once I figure out how to get them out of my phone.

Later peoples. :)

Yankees win the World Series!!........:(

by on

I really was hoping they wouldn't. As a Mets fan this Series was just too hard to watch. Which is why I avoided it. :x Hate the Phillies, and I hate the Yankees even more. In the end, though, I was hoping for a Phillies win ( :o blasphemy, I know) but that's so I wouldn't have to hear it from all these Yankee fans in my family from now until spring training. That and I just really, really hate the Yankees, and their fans are really annoying too. Mostly the ones who just hop on the bandwagon and root for them just because they won. (No offense to any bandwagon-jumpers reading this). One reason (among many) I wanted them to lose is so A-Roid wouldn't get a ring. I mean, the guy's a cheater and this is how he gets rewarded?? With everyone cheering him on like nothing happened?? Helloo!! The guy admitted to using steroids a few months ago!! How come people don't have a short memory when it comes to Pete Rose? :? It's just sad, really...Still, though, I probably just might go to the parade tomorrow just to see if I can get some autographs and some pics. I know I'm a Met fan (don't judge me :x ), I still hate the Yankees (really I do) but I wouldn't mind getting myself a little bit of memoriabilia ( too lazy right now to see if I spelled that right). I can always sell it later on and make some money. :D

So that's my plan for tomorrow. Well, hopefully. I'm a bit of a heavy sleeper. :P Tonight, though, is a different story. Planning on meeting this girl after she gets out of her class and just clearing things up with her. Hope she takes the time to listen because I really just want to get this off my chest already. I've waited too long. So, wish me luck. I think I might need it. With the Yankees winning it all last night (did I mention I hate those guys??), I don't think I can handle another heartbreak.

Later my Gamespot peeps. Hope to have some good news tomorrow.

Wow, where the hell have I been?!?

It's amazing how quickly days can just fly by. Last time I was online was back in late September (I think). I think a break from here was good and all but I didn't think I'd take one this long. I guess I've just been too busy with work and school to really keep posting on here like I used to.

It's been an alright month or so. At work I got to see Justin Tuck of the NY Giants some weeks ago! That was pretty cool. He came to give a speech to some school kids about his charity: Tucks R.U.S.H for Literacy. It's a pretty nice thing. Helps kids in need to continue reading by donating books to them. Wasn't able to get an autograph or anything :( but I did get to see him as he was leaving and waved to him as another guy shouted to "crush Dallas on Sunday!" (This was a few days before the Giants took on the Cowboys).

Other than that, things have been pretty uneventful, unfortunately. Doing okay in school, passing my exams and everything. Kinda feeling a little down lately. Other than battling a cold, I've been dealing with a little heartache because of this girl I like, think I may have ****** things up with her. It happened on morning on the way to class. I was feeling pretty tired and was just daydreaming walking to class (a bad habit I have) while listening to my music. What I didn't realize, and only figured out later, was that this girl was walking alongside me and I didn't even notice. I know now it was her because I remember looking up (I was walking with my head down to avoid seeing the long walk I had ahead of me. Kind of a little mind trick) and seeing this girl walking ahead of me really, really fast.

I recognized who she was (yes, I know what she looks like from behind, she has a very distinctive....head of hair :P ) and tried to catch up but my legs were burning up and she was too far ahead. I did catch a better glimpse as she walked into the building her class was in and saw that it was her. What I figured out later was that I didn't realize that she was actually walking next to me before taking off. I remember someone being next to me but for some reason I didn't look over to see who it was. She was walking pretty fast when I saw her, but her pace was that of someone who was pissed off. I put 2 and 2 together and realized I just pissed this girl off, thinking that I was ignoring her.

I saw her a few weeks later on the bus going home, and when I talked to her about the classes she was taking I asked her what time she takes her class on that particular day I saw her and she just shot me any angry glare and said, "In the morning" very coldly. That's when I told myself, "Oh, ****." She changed the topic and got off a few minutes later at her stop.

Now, I realize I messed up a bit here, but it wasn't entirely my fault since I wasn't exactly paying attention and didn't see her until after the damage was done. I should've said something about it that day I saw her on the bus but I saw she didn't want to talk about it. The thing that bothers me is that she's upset with me over something that was completely unintentional. I didn't ignore her, but she thinks I did. I want to talk to her about it, tell her I wasn't being a jerk, that I wasn't ignoring her, but I don't know if I'll get the chance as it seems that now she's avoiding having to run into me. I don't really blame her if she's upset, I'd be too if I had been in that situation, but I just her to know I didn't do it on purpose. I do like her a lot, and was thinking about trying to make it up to her by taking her to lunch or something but now I don't know if I'll ever get the chance (unless I wait around for her after her class is over and pretend to act like it was coincidental running into her again). Don't know what to do now. This sucks big time. To make it worse, she's the same girl I wrote about in my last blog. :( I run into her again and look what happens. Jesus... I can't seem to catch a break with women.

So that's about it. Not much else exciting happening. Enjoy your Halloween everyone. I'll be praying I don't get egged on the way home from work. Later.

I'm so tired of being single.

by on

I've been single for far too long now and just want to find that one, special woman that I can build a lasting relationship with. For a some now I've found myself thinking about the chances I've had to find someone worthwhile, thosefew occassions where I had actually met someone that, when I think back now, realize I'd met someone that I could've truly been happy with. It hurts a bit to think about those times now because back then I wasn't looking for anything serious, "Just want to play the field, mess around" I told myself and now, I find myself wishing I could go back in time and do things differently.

I don't know....I just wish it wasn't so difficult to find someone worthwhile. Someone worth sticking with and making the effort to have something special with, you know? It's not for lack of trying that I can't find one, that's for damn sure. :PMaybe I'm just too picky sometimes, have expectations that are too high, and that causes me to overlook some really nice, decent women that are right in front of me....I dunno. One thing is that I'm a bit slow working up to making a move, not really because I'm shy, but because I like to get to know the girl first. See what she's like, how she acts, you know, get a general sense of who she is and her personality. I think that may put off some women since it might make it seem like I'm not interested but that's not the case but that's just how I am. Maybe I should just try and skipping that and go right in and see what happens. Maybe I'll have better luck that way. I have to try something...

I mean, there was this really nice girl I met last semester in one of my classes that seemed like she really liked me. But stupid me had to do the usual, and instead of getting her number, I waited it out. I think I waited too long since she seemed a bit pissed at me towards the end of the semester, sometimes walking past me without saying anything. One thing that threw me off though was that I noticed she wore a gold band sometimes on her left ring finger, so I was thinking she was married. But she didn't always wear it. Didn't get a chance to ask since, like I said, she seemed pissed.

Anyway, with about 3 classes left, I thought I'd try and see if I could turn things around with one of my patented, sexy, "Whatup, babygirl" smiles. :PI saw her when I was walking into class, she looked right at me, so I gave her that warm smile and she perked up, blushed a bit and was all like, "HI!!!" I knew I was back in the game but stupidly didn't ask for her # after class. She didn't attend the last couple of classes either and took the final early because she was leaving for a trip to be with her family in her native country. :(

I'm not a woman, so I don't know if a woman ever gets over a crush she's had on someone that didn't pan put. I was thinking about this as I contemplated looking her up on Facebook and trying to reconnect with her. She might have left upset that I didn't make a move or anything and might have forgotten about me but I figure it's worth a shot. Isn't it?? God, I feel like I seem so desperate but really, I just sick of being alone. I just want to have a good woman in my life. So, if there's a chance she might she might respond to me positively, (and it turns out she isn't married), then it'll be worth it if something good comes out of it.At least that's what I tell myself...

Sorry for the long read, kinda seemed to drag on I think. It could've been longer though, I really, really left out lots of details to make it easy to read through. :P I just felt like getting a few things off my chest that've been bothering me lately. I don't know when I'll get out of this funk I'm in but, hopefully, I can make something happen. Either with this girl I mentioned, or someone else. I'm leaning towards the former since I already know her a bit, but it feels like I might have ****** it up.

I got to see Bill Clinton!!

by on

It happened yesterday. He came to the place I was working at to do a quick speech and there was so much security and Secret Service agents around. It was so exciting. I was working security at the store they have in this building and a couple Secret Service agents came over and asked if I, my supervisor, and another guard could stand guard outside on the sidewalk in front of the ropes we had set up so that no one could try and rush their way towards him as he made his way inside. I guess you could say I was a temporary Secret Service agent. :P

There was definitely a buzz in the air as everyone waiting was so amped to see him and a couple of minutes his motorcade came down the street, stopped in front of the building and when he got out there was this huge cheer from the crowd there. As he made his around the back of the suv toward the building, a reporter on my right shouted out a question, he smiled and walked over! I mean, Bill Clinton stood no more than a foot away from me!! How cool is that?? It was so awesome. He's pretty tall, and looks exactly like he does on tv. And his hair is so white!!! As Secret Service led him inside, his hair was all you saw. He turned around in my direction as he went inside and, I swear, it's like he was looking right at me! It could've been that reporter he was looking at because she was friggin sexy (tanned skin, toned, green eyes, very young) and she was right behind me but still...

He was only there for about 20 minutes or so and there was still a big crowd (even bigger I think as word spread he was there) and when he came out he came over and started waving and shaking hands with people. It was really cool. I didn't get to take a picture because , you know, I had to be a professional and stuff. :P But, wow, it's a moment I won't forget anytime soon.

My birthday's today!

by on

Or I should say, it was, since it's kind of late now. I am now 28 years young. :) I was just thinking how quickly this birthday came and went and then it hit me: how do the years go by so fast?? I mean, in a couple years I'll be....30. :cry: Can't believe it.... But, I still feel young, hell, I still look young. People tell me all the time when they find out my age how shocked they are because they were thinking I was 18-19 years old. :P So, it's not all bad getting older since I don't look it.

I didn't get to do anything to celebrate though, since today I started my new job. I worked for about 10 hours, and I have a 12 hour shift tomorrow because "Thursday's are long days", to me as it was explained. Plus, somone just got fired so they need people to cover that shift. I'm so tired because I was basically on my feet all day, and I'm sort of dreading having to get up extra early tomorrow but I can't really complain. It's a job after all, and I'm getting paid, so it's all good. I guess that can be considered a birthday present then. :P
