I used to check my Friends Page pretty regularly, even years after I stopped bothering to update this. Slowly, it seemed as if more and more people stopped posting as well. Now there's only 2 entries from one user on my Friends Page. But apparently there's just some problem with my account, and people are still posting, and I'm not seeing the entries unless I look at their actual profiles. Oh well. 

Also, the following was saved as a draft some time in April of 2006. It's not interesting at all, but I'd feel bad deleting it after it'd sat here waiting 6 years for me to complete the post:

The Holga came the other day. I found a local photo shop that develops 120 film so now I just need to order some from B&H. Today I used a roll of black and white 35mm film in there so we'll see how those come out, if they come out at all.

I went to this place Harold's in New Jersey that serves enormous portions of food. I was with 3 other people and we got this giant sandwhich that we almost managed to finish. The place is great but too bad I didn't have room for desert, I could have had one of their cakes which basically looks like a big cardboard box covered in icing.

The World Baseball Classic sucks. At first I was almost excited about it, and watching the games was interesting. But I didn't realize until recently how stupid the rules and format are. There's 16 teams in 4 pools, and I forget how they choose which teams play each other within the pools and in what order, but what ends up happening is that when a team like ours, USA, has a record of 1-1, and a team with a record of 2-0 (Canada) plays another team with a 1-1 record, like Mexico, if Canada beats Mexico then we are eliminated, even though we haven't even played the third game. BUT, if Mexico beats Canada, but does so without scoring more than 3 runs (1-0, 2-0, 2-1), then we're STILL eliminated from round 2. I think there's all kinds of other stupid rules for whatever other situation comes up. The point is that there's no reason that this thing can't be played like the post season in MLB. In each pool, there should be two 3-game series. The two winners of those two best-of-3 series should then play a 5 game series (3 out of 5). This would take a little longer but I think the results would be more geniune, and a lot easier to follow. I think they only reason they did this was because they're trying to make baseball more popular around the world, and they figure if they have this thing in the format of the World Cup that people will be more interested. Which might be true, until those people try to follow the 2006 MLB season or post-season.

I got this sweatshirt yesterday, a white zip-up hoodie. It quickly became one of my favorites. But tonight on the way home from work the fucking sleeve got snagged on this chainlink fence and it ripped. I was pissed. Still am. Now I gotta call the store I got it from and make sure they have another one. I think I'll call the dentist who's fence it was a harrass them for a while too.

I have about 13 hours now to finish my take-home psychology final, my psyc term paper, and my English portfolio. I should be OK but it means little to no sleep, which wouldn't be so bad if I didn't also have to take an English final tomorrow. At first I was happy with the MTA strike 2 weeks ago because it meant more time to study and prepare which I definitely needed, but now I just feel like I could have all of this shit taken care of already and really nothing to worry about.

I'm not so sure I'm liking the whole school thing at this point. Maybe it's because I've been out of that loop for about 3 years now but I'm really not doing all that well. I could, if I didn't procrastinate so much and put more effort into it. For some reason I can't.

Also, I've had non-stop problems with this financial aid bullshit. It took me forever to get this shit taken care of because nobody, including my mother or the financial aid advisors, seemed the least bit interested in helping me with this crap. So after finally getting it all taken care of and being told that everything is in order, I started getting tuition bills for ~$9000. Bullshit. So I went to the FA office and they tell me that I need to print some signature page or some shit. Instead of showing me where it is or just printing it for me, they keep telling me to just look around on the FAFSA website. I can't fucking find it. There's references to it and things telling me where to click but then I go there and there's nothing, not what I need anyway. So I might loose financial aid or loans or some shit and end up owing lots. That sucks.

This entry it taking forever to type. I really can't think of anything else to write about, even though plently of shit has been going on. I'm managing to get out more which is nice but all it means is I'm spending more money than I should be.

quite exciting, this computer magic

Managed to finish another paper at the last minute, this one's due tomorrow morning and I hadn't started writing it until sometime during economics this afternoon.

I got a letter today saying I owe $9000+ in tuition, though I was told with the financial aid, loans, and scholarhips that I'd be getting I would actually have money left over, so I'll need to go to the financial aid office or bursars or something tomorrow. Stupid school shit. I really have no idea how any of this crap works but as far as I know I had everything taken care of. Guess not.

Oh well. The worst thing that could happen is they remove me from my classes, and obviously i wouldnt be in school anymore since there's no way I can afford to pay for it myself. So it'd either be back to Pathmark or find a better job.

Better job is sounding pretty good right now regardless of what happens, actually. Meghan called earlier and told me Denise quit today. Lucky her. Everyone who I talk to on a regular basis in that store is miserable there. I hate it. A lot. At least it's not just me, though. I wish one of the crazy fuckers working in maintenance would just snap already and burn the place down.

Oh yea and DoD: Source came out. It's good and bad, I don't know. Only 4 maps came with the initial release and the British are completely removed from the game. The guns are all balanced it seems, too balanced. It's not all that bad though. Performance is weird, sometimes great sometimes it runs like shit. The HDR lighting looks really good, and usually it doesn't cause any kind of performance hit, but then for random reasons it does and it sucks and needs to be turned off.

So this morning I couldn't find my school bag, then I couldn't find my textbooks, and I had only gotten about 4 hours of sleep so I said fuck it and stayed home and watched TV all day. By the time I found all my shit I would have been too late for the first class, and the textbook I needed for the next class ended up being under the couch and soaked in spilled iced tea, so that's ruined. So fuck it I guess. The problem is I need to buy all these other books plus other shit like a new winter coat and a TV and crap. But I'm broke.

Hopefully it'll last...

Yea and I got the new HORSE the Band CD but I haven't listened to it too much yet. Maybe it'll keep me awake on the way to school in the morning.

So I'm off to some kind of start here in school. Between Charlie and Amanda at my house until 1am and me feeling like shit when I woke up at 6am, I decided it'd be better if I just skipped my first class and come in at 12:45. But then I took a little longer than I wanted to getting ready and shit, so I ended up missing my 2nd class too. Oh well. But I did manage to write the narrative essay that's due next week on the way here, so at least I got something accomplished.

I'm a college student now. It's not so bad, really. I guess I'll get used to it.

I ran into someone on the way today I hadn't seen since I graduated highschool, though I did run into her myspace page not too long ago. I talked to her on the ferry and then on the train, it turns out she lives pretty close by. We were talking about school and shit and I found out one of the teachers I used to like a lot has cancer and is apparently pretty sick. So it was pretty depressing to hear that, but otherwise it was nice running into her.

Things just continue to get worse at PathMark. My department manager is a moron and doesn't understand, no matter how many times I tell him, that I cant work on certain days and certain hours because of school. The Assistant Store Manager, this 4 foot tall little bastard, hates me and takes joy in finding the smallest things to complain about. I was taking a shit the other day (sorry.) when he pages me to return to my department. But simply paging me wasn't enough, he had to remind me over the store loudspeaker, that my department is LOCATED IN THE FRONT OF THE STORE, MITCH. What an asshole.

All of my entries are pretty much Friends-Only now, so add me or email me or something.


I was going to do one of those quiz/memes, but then I got to the 3rd of 4th question and was annoyed at having to choose 1 favorite song and/or movie. So fuck it, I don't do memes anyway. I just happen to be really bored. Also, when searching for an image for the answer to the first question (where did you grow up?), on the third or fourth page, there was a picture of my cousin. Weird.

Anyway I called out of work today so I could use Joey's tickets and go to the Yankee game tonight. My boss probably hates me since I had already called out a bunch of days last month. Oh well, fuck him. At least last time I was actually sick.

And last night I almost got electrocuted at the bus stop.

For some reason I decided it'd be a good idea to mess with the color scheme of my LiveJournal, which I hadn't changed since shortly after I first created this account. While looking through the various styles and schemes and whatnot, I didn't realize they were actually being applied to my journal. Oops. Now I'm too lazy to change everything back, and too lazy to change my Friends colors to match this new scheme. I shouldn't really care anyway, since I've pretty much abandoned this thing. That should be pretty obvious by now, since the last few entries have all been about how I never update this journal.

EDIT: Nevermind.
