      really weird night

      2 weeks ago

      My thursday night has been... weird... I get off work and clean up the house a little bit then play D&D. After that I have some left over work I have to do so I do that then clean up some more. I realize that I want to get to the gym, but it is 11 and I think I should do some laundry before that.

      Then I say "self there is more cleaning to be done cause your parents are coming back to there home and you have trashed it" So I clean more.... then I still want to go to the gym, but it is 1AM now.... so I decide to make scrambled eggs with salmon (its really fucking good) now it is almost 2 AM and I have to be at work by 8. My sleep schedule is so messed up

      I need to prioritize the gym more... like getting there right after work, but then I run into the issue that the gym is packed when I get off and I fucking hate that. The perfect time for me is around 10PM because there are very few people there and I get to use all the equipment without worrying about inconveniencing other people.

      Cider

      2 weeks ago

      So I have been brewing another batch of hard cider. This batch is pretty good. It taste is pretty good, its not too dry like most ciders but it isnt a super sweet cider either. The thing about it is that it is 10%.

      I dont have a name for this recipe. so ideas are welcome.

      Favorite book of all time

      1 month ago

      I have been a fan of Jim butcher for a while. I enjoy the Dresden Files a great deal but I LOVE his other series the Codex Alera, a fantasy series consisting of 6 books. The series revolves around a young boy who is very different from every one else in the world and not in a good way. This young boy Tavi grows over the series and it is just awesome to follow along with his growth.

      But my favorite book of the series is Captain's Fury it is the 4th book and Tavi is really coming into his own. He is no longer helpless and has become a person who is respected by many. I really love the book because there are little things in it that give a great message about how to live. One should not just try to survive life, one should try and live. Living and surviving are not the same thing. Living is enjoying yourself and experiencing things, it may not always be pleasant but you are always doing something.

      Aside from that little tidbit in the middle of the book it is a great adventure and fantasy novel.

      The man in the mirror

      2 months ago

      Its funny that you can look in the mirror your whole life and see your self then one day look up from washing your hands and not recognize the person looking back at you.

      That happened to me today. I cant explain it but I no longer know the man looking back at me. I used to see a... I hesitate to say kid but I feel like that is what has always best described me. But the person looking back at me was an over weight man who looked disheveled.

      If people see the person that I saw then I dont want to be that way. I want to be that kid again. the kid who was proud to take his shirt off... time to go to work on this thing.



      Edit: but this spark is more then just not recognizing who I was looking at. I was at a party the other weekend and was having a really good time with the people there but I now wonder what the girls thought of when they looked at me. If I am not comfortable with my shirt off what do they think? I doubt that they would want to see me with my shirt off... This is really something I need to work on. I know that it wont change over night but things need to change.

      today is just bleg

      3 months ago

      I just feel like absolute bollocks today. I havent worked out in forever and I have been drinking way more often that I should.

      I also have a review at my job and I dont know how it is going to go. Not knowing how it is going to be makes me nervous as hall, but I really shouldnt be worried because I am good at what I do.

      I just want to go to bed and then wake up at 4 in the morning and go to the gym. I need to lift weights.

      scrapping my pep projects

      4 months ago

      I scrapped half of my pepakura projects the other day. They just werent doing what I wanted them to do. Two of them I had put some clear coat to see if they would harden up well enough... and they didnt. The other was an incomplete file and didnt come with all the parts (I got the correct file now so I am going to be putting it together again)

      Now I only have two complete helmets: a not very detailed Mark 4 halo helmet, and the blood dragon helmet from Mass Effect (not really complete but its basicly done.)

      I will be cutting and gluing together some more helmets before the summer is here. During the summer I plan on doing the fiberglassing other smelling things outside. plus my garage is small as fuck and I dont want to suffocate while I do that stuff in a closed space.

      music makes me emotional

      4 months ago

      I really enjoy music. I played jazz and classical trombone while I was in high school and like to think that I was alright. I listen to everything from rock and roll to rap to techno to classical, the only thing I dont like it country. But FUCK! does it hit a spot sometimes that just brings tear to my eyes.

      I was a trombone player for several years, 8 to be exact. For several of those years I didnt care how good I was then as I got better I started to care more. about 3 years in I got a private teacher... but never really tried hard enough to warrant paying what my parents where paying. I never didnt have a teacher but never tried as hard as I could have. I think that I could have been really good if I just put in the effort, that is how I feel about a lot of things, I just dont put in the effort... its bad how I go about things.

      As for my musical tastes I really like almost everything. the only real rule that I go by is does the music sound good. Not the lyrics, cause I rarely listen to lyrics, I listen to how they sound not really the meaning behind them. For me I can listen to a song with happy lyrics, but if the song is slower or is predominantly minor chords then the song will sound sad to me. (and damnit do I like happy stuff) Mr. Brightside by the killers for example is a song about how a guy knows his girl friend is cheating on him and he is breaking up with her. That is not really a happy song... but to me it sounds AWESOME! I dont know why i listen to music this way but it is just how I roll, and I like it.

      Now the real reason that I am bringing up this topic, how music makes me emotional. I associate songs with situations or books (I like to listen to a style of song when I read a book. It sets a tone for the book, so I will put on a pandora station and that will normally work)... or just feelings in general. But sometimes a song will hit me and I will get tears in my eyes. I dont know why this happens because I have maybe listened to the song a bunch or maybe I have never heard the song but it just makes me cry. I dont break down on the spot and sob, I just get a tear in my eye while listening... the current song that I know does this is Surrender by Cash Cash. (I watched the music video and that did it) its a great song and I love listening to it....

      what needs to be taken away from this post is that I love music.

      The Disney thread took off before I had a chance to log back in...hello from the other Portland! I've been working here for a little over 2 years, living here for 1.5. I've lived in New England since I was 8 though. Are you a Portland, OR native?

        oh man ONLY 66K? that is tiny. well, then again we are a couple million i think, but really spread out. but our down town is really cool, the city is cut in half by a river and so the major business half (with a bunch of tall buildings) is on one side, and a slightly poorer side is on the other. Then on the business side it goes into some hills and the REALLY rich all live up there.

        Cool area though, but then it all spreads out and its all housing. I live about a 10 min drive from the down town areas, its a really nice quiet neighbor hood.

        I definitely wouldn't go back to Florida to live. I really want to go back to Universal, Sea World, and Busch Gardens. Disney if there's time...we used to go to Disney a few times a year (oh the horror, right?), but only been to those others once or twice.

        I bet your Portland would feel so massive! I think our population is around 66,000 last time I heard it mentioned, and we're the biggest city in Maine. You can walk from one end of "downtown" to the other in about an hour, and then it's just residential for a while. Big food town though, my goodness the amount of restaurants is ridiculous!

        Never been to Florida, but I hear it is... a train wreck. I was on the east coast for a family trip a long time ago. But we went to DC, then down to west Virginia to visit some family in them there hills... that is a story for another time though.

        You should come on over, it would be a WHOLE different world. Portland OR, is kinda like Austin, really fucking weird. But a really fun place. I do need to visit the east coast at some point in my life, I got a cool friend i should visit in New York at some point.

        Sadly, I haven't. Originally from south Florida, my family moved to Maine when I was 8 and I'm still here! Farthest west I've been in Arizona, and a few days in Colorado back in high school. Might be kind of dorky, but visiting another Portland would be kind of cool. Have you ever been to New England?
