Happy Memorial Day everybody.  Wow, what a weekend.  I give my deepest regrets to who I've hurt (you know who you are).  This was a weekend of self realization.  For starters, the Coinmonster show on Friday was amazing.  There is nothing like a good night out with your friends.  Saturday and Sunday are a long story.  If you need to know, just ask me.  This emotional roller coaster ride has produced some good poetry though (if nothing else).

Guess who graduated?  ME!!!!!  Finally, I can say with a smile on my face that I am a college graduate.  Now, I'm faced with the problem of entering the real world and finding a real job.  For the time being, I am concentrating my efforts in the Youngstown/Warren area as well as Akron.  It hasn't hit me yet.  I've been so used to heading back to school in the fall for another year of school.  Well, I have been doing it since the tender age of 4.  The reason I haven't been writing more is because I am having trouble with my *free* ISP.  Because I live out here in the boonies, the only one that I can use is Bluelight.  AOL isn't even out here!  So, I'm not sure when my next entry will be.  I'll probably be telling you all about my vacation.  Hey Dandy, I'm gonna miss you this year down in NC  :-(

Happy birthday, Jason.  I decided not to take the North Carolina job.  Actually, it didn't take much thought when I found out exactly what the job entailed.  Sitting in a cubicle writing code all day does not appeal to me.  Originally, I thought it was going to be a system admin job, but I was mistaken.  The trip was nice though.  How am I feeling?  Actually, I'm feeling much better.  Work DID NOT treat me well Friday.  The story is complicated.  Ask me if you  want to know the whole story.  Aaarrgg....  I have a day off today and the weather is crappy!!  Why does this always happen?

I leave for North Carolina Wednesday morning at 10 for my final interview.  I'm flying home early Thursday morning, then heading straight to work!  Talk about a long few days.  Also, I'VE NEVER BEEN ON A PLANE BEFORE!!  The funny thing is, this trip is the farthest from my mind right now.  I've had a hard couple of days (you know who you are).  It has been quite a roller coaster ride.  I'm just extremely sorry that you decline to listen you your heart.  Call me whatever you want, but I just can't block my feelings out.  I've found that the best way to live is to combine the two and find some kind of equilibrium.  Maybe I'm wrong (I usually am anyway).  Well, I'll be sure to tell you all about my trip.  Wish me luck (I hope no Chinese fighter planes cross my path)!!

Sunday, May 6:

Gee, do I love Sundays.  It is my day to relax and recuperate from the parties and bars.  Speaking of parties, my housemate Ben threw a nice cookout yesterday.  We polished off 3/4 of the keg along with assorted hard liquors before heading off to the bars.  Ben's medic class as well as Wayne and a few of my friends were here at the house.  Good food, good friends, and a big friendly keg are pretty much all you need for a good time.

It is a new month, and I have a new tattoo!!  It's a red and black tribal design that stretches across my back from shoulder to shoulder (about a foot long).  Yes, I love it.  The trip there, however, was a different story.  For some reason (beautiful weather), I decided to take the Ninja to the tattoo parlor which is in Kent.  The hour trip killed my back which was precisely where I was going to get stabbed for the next three hours!!  Needless to say, I survived.  If you want to see it, just let me know!  One more thing, thank you Dandy for a wonderful night.  (de ja vu?)  NOPE!!  I could get used to this.
