My NEW cousin!
Awww, isn't he so cute. He is my little superbuddy.
Today I was in charge of babysitting two very cute little girls.(ages 3 and 5) That was pretty fun... and they behaved very well, so everything was great!
Called my uncle today. Here is the Cali. update. My Grandpa has a job that is going well. (something dealing with insurance.) By the end of this month he should have a place of his own. The baby (Uncle Victor and Aunt Kristin's) is due towards the middle of February. They desperately want me to come before the baby does so I can help out. The guys at Sony desperately wish to meet me and hang out. Sooo... that means while the day isnt finalized, my uncle said that I should expect to be saying goodbyes towards the end of January and be ready to fly that first week. Though, if things turn sour with Grandpa's job then I may have to kiss the trip goodbye. But, that is highly unlikely. Even if that were to happen I would still be able to go out there and just hang out for a few months depending on the baby, but if not that long... then I could atleast swing about a month. But like I said, my uncle said, "Don't worry, I will see you before V-day." I look forward to it in many ways, and in some ways I kind of want to stay. I need time away to get everything straight and just be away from this area for a while.
I was thinking about the stars today. It is amazing how man has always been attracted to them. I mean, they are truly beautiful. Each star we know is a sun. A ball of burning gases. The funny thing is though, is that it might not even really be there. Since we are merely seeing light that is millions of light years old, think of how many times what we see isn't true, it is just a mirror... or actually just a lens, a dream, a memory of what was once there. I could look at the stars forever. But, the funny thing is I don't really think while I am looking at the stars. It is more of a hypnotic glare. They make you think... but while they make me think I don't really... think about anything specifically. Some how I think that they just give us moments to let our inner conscienceness have a little time. Which, take technology... cities burning a million watts per second to light miles of urban sky. The technology masks the images that these ancient illusions provide, but it all makes. You see, the typical city oriented person is always on the go. They don't want to have time to stop and just let thoughts move. Then again, I don't feel that those in the country WANT to let them move... but they do because we don't have that mask. We have that instant connection to the stars. Taking celestial ideas a step further, many people claim full moons make people, animals, etc. act in an unusual fashion. I don't think this is necessarily true. I would claim that if it does happen though maybe it is a result to the full moons light masking much of the stars. On a REALLY bright full moon, you can hardly see any of them. Maybe that has an effect on people. Then again, why wouldn't that happen every full moon, or even when we go inside at night. Maybe our inner conscienceness just has to be at a weak stage in order for us to be effected. It certainly makes you wonder on just how important the stars are to us. They were used as devices of measurement, time keeping, navigation, etc. Can it be that maybe this was not due to random discovery; maybe in truth there is something that draws man to the skies that has nothing to due with mere fascination, but something far greater. Maybe there is a direct link between man and space, stars, time... whether it be physical or purely psychilogical. Have to gazed at the stars tonight? Have to sat there and wondered just how or even what this simple thing does to you? There has to be some reason, some answer to man's clutch on stars...
I know, I haven't updated in a long time. I am so busy with college essays and applications it is ridiculous. I don't even get home until about 9:00 these days, so it's crazy. I do have some new, BIG news. I am moving to LA, California at the end of December. I am graduating early and moving in with my aunt and uncle. I will be working for Sony Imageworks (my uncle works there.) So, I will be getting experience in the career I am planning to go into. I will still go to college of course. I am a little scared, trilled, and uneasy altogether. (mixed feelings) It is cool, but I am actually moving on in life, i have completed that last step before the next step to the real world. I am really happy though. Here's to the rest of my life... "California Here I come, Away from where I started from"
I miss mary terribly! I can't wait till she comes back! She rocks my world! Water is good for you. Mary's room mate has just attacked her with whiteout. Now AJ is growling at her. Mary is dead. AJ bit her. AJ's the Devil. Mary is really dead.
(note none of this was scripted or asked to be written by anyone...)
Well, today was a full day. I did the typical morning routine. In Mrs. Barton's class we watched a little of Star Wars... SWEET! I actually worked in Ray's class today on my paper, I am half way through with it.Chorus went well,guitar was fine. The thing that made today crazy was having to do this "mock guitar class" at the Averix center for Chris. I had to run home, shower, dress in kahkis and polo, figure out what kind of outfit i could bring my sister, eat dinner, go pick up my sister, then run to the place. Ofcourse, it didnt start until 7, and when I got home I was so tired, but I didnt take a nap in fear I would be late. Instead, I watch Roswell for the first time in a while. Season 3 is on. It was actually one of my favorite episodes. Maria, Michael's girlfriend, gets visited from an "old Friend." They met at some band thing becuase she used to be really into writing music and loved to play guitar, but stopped singing and playing after Alex's death the year before. Anyways, she eventually realizes she wants the old Maria back, so she dumps Michael... which is sad and I didnt really like this part, but it is awesome because she is actually palying and singing some of her original songs, and they are awesome. She has a really good voice, and pretty catchy lyrics. Maria is awesome! though i still prefer liz...oh and today I was happy because I learned Shiri Appleby (She plays Liz Parker in Roswell) is actually staring in a sci-fi original called "Darklight." All I know is she gets some power form some wierd light becuase of some strange proficy. It will probably be pretty bad, but I dont care, it will have My Shiri in it and I will be happy and love it. Well, that is pretty much it, i didnt get home from the guitar thing until about 9:40, so I am pretty wiped out.
Ok, so for this "POLITCAL FORUM" ;) (just incase I get questioned since,... yes i am at school and yes they are snooping around.) I was wondering everyones opinion on the electoral college... is it fair, should we go to straight popular vote... or is there another idea for how we should elect the president. I have to write a paper on it, so i figured I would see everyone elses points of view. Now for the life aspect of today... today is one of those days where you arent happy or sad, just kinda livin' it. It is hilarious in the library, listening to the 2 librarians who are the "technical experts" try to solve problems. I figured out the handbook they must have read on the job.
LIBRARIAN/TECHNOLOGY HANDBOOK FOR SCHOOL
1.) When a problem occurs, first ask if they have ran ALL Windows, Mac, and Linex updates... making sure they cover all options, regardless of the OS. 2.) Say Ummm and Maybe A LOT. 3.) You are a genius, you know how to do it, they don't, so doin't listen to anyone who knows what they are doing because you are "the God of Information Technologies." 4.) Gates is the King... no matter what anyone else says. 5.) Just because you recieve an email, it doesnt mean you are actually online. 6.) Network problems must have something to do with the power chord, so pull it in and out as much as possible in order to reboot the Network. 7.) If for some reason hitting the computer with a book doesnt work, then call the "Secret board of Masters" aka "Central Office" in secret, then come out and pretend you recieved this God like vision and are now a master of the problem. 8.) Try to make it simple to go into the system/network to recover information, I mean, NO teenage is smart enough to hack our super-advanced software firewall. 9.) The Blue-screen of death is a cool screensaver, so leave it there as long as possible.
That is all I have for now... I am still observing their behavior and will update more to the list... if you have more to add, by all means leave a post...and dont forget to give your opinion on the electoral college please.
Ok, they thought they got me this time, but I am way too smooth for them. I told them this was just a historical experiment site. We are a group formed to record data of our day so that others can gain from it in the future... ok, so I didnt LIE... not totally, ok maybe a little, but technically you could consider an LJ that. Ok, I know, lame, but who cares, my journal. Anyways, it is crazy the ambient noises in the library. The computers buz, chairs make some noise, which is weird considering they are all wooden,beeping from somewhere, a clock going tick, tick tick....someone please shoot me! so annoying... but i do want to make a song, and have a clock in the back ground, and make it about time... except the clock will be set to a tempo of 60 ;) (if you couldnt figure that out then... you should go live under a waterfall...no, dont, that would be cool, you should go live under a...sewage drain pipe... from a chemical plant that prides itself on distructing the environment.. yes , do that) I want to play the song at... umm maybe 180.
