i don't come here much anymore

by on

i don't know why, but for some reason i haven't been coming to GS much lately. it's not that i'm busy (in fact, i am the opposite of busy), i guess i just get bored of the internet quicker than i used to. i don't know. i started browsing reddit (i don't really post or do upvotes/downvotes, i just like to look at the pictures). it's a pretty cool site. i like it.

i've also acquired a girlfriend. i started talking to her several months ago, and we've been together for only about a month now. she's kind of crazy sometimes, but i like her a lot. sometimes it doesn't feel like it's worth it though. she'll get upset for stupid things. but it's whatever.

tonight i went to see Mastodon and Opeth, and also a band called Ghost played. i went with my cousin and her boyfriend's daughter, plus the daughter's boyfriend. my cousin's boyfriend is brothers with one of the guys in Mastodon, so we got to go backstage and i got to meet them. i didn't even know Opeth was going to be there until i saw the ticket receipt, which really got me excited, because i LOVE Opeth! i high fived them after they got done playing, and when Mastodon was playing, i was standing on the stage right behind them. and for a little while, i was standing right next to Mikael Akerfeldt (singer+guitar) and Martin Axenrot (drummer)!! i really wanted to talk to them, but the music was loud and it would have been hard.

but at the end of Mastodon's set, everyone that was standing at the back of the stage watching went to the front of the stage. so i was on stage with Mastodon, Opeth, and Ghost! i high fived all of them, it was awesome. after the show was over, my cousin took a picture of me with Troy Sanders of Mastodon (he is her boyfriend's brother)

tomorrow is my 21st birthday, woot! having a party at my friends' house tonight, gonna get messed up real good :P then on Sunday i plan on going to Taco Mac with some people and joining their Brewniversity.

this is weird, don't know how to fix it

my school has this thing called GeorgiaVIEW Vista Blackboard Learning System where it has our classes and the professors can post material, you can send emails to other classmates, there are discussion boards, i actually think it's awesome.

but anyways, for one of my classes, my professor posts writing assignments and puts us in groups and we can discuss with our groups about our answers to the writing assignments. each student must submit their own paper, but we can discuss with each other. he makes a separate "thread" for each group, in the 'discussion' area. but the thing is, it shows up under MY 'discussion' area too late. he just posted the writing assignment that is due on 10/17 and the groups, but i am just now seeing the discussion threads for the LAST writing assignment, that was due on like 9/26 or 27 or some day like that. i logged in a few minutes ago and there's some "New" all over my screen and i look to see what it is and it's s*** from back in September. not only does it show the 5 or 6 or 7 threads for the different groups, but it shows that other students have made posts in those 'threads', meaning that they were showing up for everyone else. why didn't they show up for me, i wonder? :(

i never know what to title these...

it's 1:16am and my mom and brother are both up and walking around the house. my brother is being a loud stomper, that bastard.

made an 80 on my criminal procedure midterm. i don't know why my professor felt that a midterm was necessary after only 3 chapters (was supposed to be 4 but sometimes he talks so much about 1 thing that it takes up half the class) and only about 1/3 (or less) of the way through the semester. i was hoping to make a B, but i would have preferred my B be a little higher than the minimum requirement :P next time i'll hope for a high B, then i'm sure i'll get it.

every f***ing time

by on

every time i like a girl, something always has to go wrong and it doesn't work out for me. this last one was my best friend's roommate. went down to stay with my friend a few weeks ago, didn't have any intentions of trying to get with anyone. well me, my friend, her boyfriend, our other friend, and my friend's roommate go down to the bars, and when we're there, the roommate is giving hints, and my friend and her bf tell me to go for it, she's interested. so i do, we have a good night, i go home the next day happy. now i'm not one of those guys that just hooks up with a girl then forgets about her. it's like impossible for me to do that and then not feel any emotional connection to them. so me and the girl, we keep talking, i start liking her, and it's obvious by the way she's talking to me that she's liking me.

well this past weekend i went back down there for friday and saturday night. everything went well, everyone had a great time, and when i left sunday, i was sad to leave but happy that i went down.

but i could tell yesterday that she probably wants to brush me to the side now. why? i have no idea. i know the best thing for me to do right now would be to just stop talking to her and forget about her. but i don't WANT to do that. my mind is telling me one thing, my emotions are telling me another. if what i'm thinking is true, then how can someone do something as intimite as sex then just feel indifferent to the other person? if it's true that that is what she's doing, then this hurts. i know a relationship would never work, and i'm perfectly fine with that, but i'd still like to at least talk to her. i've made this same mistake before and i shouldn't have let myself make it again, but whatever.

time to blog i guess

by on

an update in the life of needled24-7, well where to begin? still in college, starting my junior year very soon. looking forward to classes starting back, i've been stuck in the same routine all summer. been playing lots of xbox, mostly forza 3 and modern warfare 2 (gotta get ready for modern warfare 3, can't f***in wait for it). there's this girl i work with that i like, but in a matter of days she will be moving like 1.5+ hours away for school. we hung out a few times (took her on a date earlier this week) and it's gone very well (kissed her) but since she is moving, that really prevents anything else from happening. hopefully i can hang out with her maybe 1 more time before she leaves.

bought halo reach tonight

by on

me and several of my friends went to the midnight release of halo reach tonight. they had a halo 3 tournament at 10pm, before the release of reach. one of my friends is a pretty legit halo player so i thought for sure that he would win. anyways, there were 6 (i think) first rounds, and the winner of each match went onto the next round (two 3v3 rounds), and the winners of those two matches did 1v1 to determine the winner. anyways, i won my first match, made me feel like a pro, but i lost in the next round, cause i was in it with my friend, so i didn't expect to win :P but of course he won that round. but anyways, the guy he ended up playing 1v1 kicked my friend's ass :lol: they gave him a $25 gift card to the store, pretty cool i suppose.

anyways, i got my game, went home to play online. so i'm having a great time playing, i'm in a party with one of my friends, we get our other friend in our party, then before we start matchmaking, my xbox decides it doesn't want to stay connected to the internet :| i start to rage, and so after only about 5 games online, i can't play anymore tonight.

long story short, the problem is that my xbox can't connect to the new router we got several months ago (for one reason or another) and i end up having to connect an ethernet cable from my xbox to my laptop, and that works and all, but it's annoying having to do it every time i want to play online, plus if i let my laptop go idle for too long, it disconnects me, which gets annoying because sometimes i forget, and end up getting dc'd in the middle of an online match. so i think i'm just going to have to get the geek squad to come to my house and have them work their geekiness (:P) and make it work. i talked to a guy on the phone and he spoke to one of the agents that goes out to houses and i got quoted at $150. so not exactly cheap but i really don't care how much i have to pay, i need my **** to work right.

just felt like doing a new blog.

classes are going good, there's this one girl in 2 of my classes that i'm trying to get to know and stuff. i got her number yesterday, a good sign. i've walked with her after our second class together, a few times, and we get along pretty good. she's Mexican, nothing wrong with that but i've really only pursued white girls before :x lol

but she's cute, so hopefully all goes well!

the internet is free!

my internet stopped working 2 nights ago, so naturally, boredom occurred. i was in the middle of playing facebook poker and it just stopped working so and i found out my router was fine, it just wasn't connecting to the internet, so i was like FFFFFFUUUUUU but then i fell asleep so it was okay. then it was out for yesterday still, so i played my ps2 (or tried to, actually the games i tried to play didn't work cause my ps2 is a piece of poop so i ended up playing chess with my brother lol) but we got it back today actually like 2 minutes ago, so naturally i had to get on gamespot and post a blog about it :|
