Adios, sweet sweet LJ [24 May 2004|10:35pm]

Jebus... [11 Apr 2004|12:57am]
[ mood | hopeful ]

So it's been almost 4 months since we've spoken, dear livejournal. What has happened? Um...not a whole lot. I grow deeper in love with Joanne every day, and every day long for the money that will enable us to get married. This might come soon in the form of a new job. I have an interview Tuesday at a machine shop called Metaldyne. It starts at $8.50 I think. The person who informed me of said job told me that within a couple years, I'll be making $30K. That is marriage-class money, especially since she will probably be graduated from school (which I also wish I could be, but that's another story for another time...) and have a decent-paying job herself. The mere thought of it is enough to set my mind alight...

I spent a week in Florida with her. We went to visit an old friend who moved down there about a year and a half ago. A whole week with her at my side with nothing important to do...God it was wonderful. No work, no Drunk/stoned roomies, no nothing...just relaxation. I didn't want to come home.

Mayhaps I'll be updating this more often, though I'm not entirely certain very many (if any) people still read this. If you're reading this...hi.

Lemons, lemons, lemons [10 Dec 2003|02:45am]
[ mood | crazy ]

So life has sank a bit lately...luckily I'm dating the most divine human being ever, and she's been wonderfully helpful and understanding. In a nutshell, I slid into a telephone pole on Friday night and I'm facing a shitload of legal fees and car repairs. Oy vey. But damn do I love her.

It's about FUCKING TIME [18 Nov 2003|02:20am]
[ mood | So friggin' happy ]

So I have been internet-less for over 2 months now, and my involuntary hiatus is over. Damnable roomies and faulty equipment are mostly to blame, but knowing me, there's probably a portion of guilt on myself. Some things never change....

Right now, it's almost 2:30 in the morning and I worked today, so I'm pretty damn tired. I'm sure I'll actually be back to regular posting soon. It might take a bit of time to ease back into the wonderful world of Livejournal, so be patient (because I'm sure all of you are just dying to hear how I'm doing).

New Dashboard Confessional CD downloaded tonight..."A Mark, A Mission, A Brand, A Scar." It seems about the only thing that's the same as the "Old Dashboard" is Chris' voice. They got electric guitars now, and the songs are faster. Just as good though. I'm diggin' it.

September 9th...New John Mayer CD. It's called "Heavier Things." I doubt the title has anything to do with the style, but either way, I can't wait.

I promise not to try not to fuck with your mind [26 Jun 2003|06:51pm]
[ mood | better ]

Ah...better mood

So on a kinda spur of the moment decision, I went to the Eve 6 concert last night. Tix were $6, and I happened to have that much exactly in my wallet. Money that would most likely be better spent on gas for my car, but since it has failing brakes, I figure I'll be driving less. I'm glad I went. Crowedsurfed to "Open Road Song" and had a great time in the pit as well (despite the beer that was spilled on me...ew). I think I was the only person there singing along with the new songs they did (CD comes out July 22). I had a killer time. Concerts always cheer me up...like a lot. I'm going to see the Gin Blossoms on Saturday night for free. Gin Blossoms...damn they were good.

Further along the good news front...I got a job today. I start Monday. Command Plastic in Tallmadge (for those that know where that is). I'm only making about $7.25 an hour, but it's fairly easy work, and I get benefits. Hehe...the hours are somewhat odd. Monday through Thursday from 2:30pm to 1:00am. 4 10 hour days. At least I have every weekend off. Leaves time for trips wherever I want to go (Michigan, Miami, Cincinnati, etc.). All in all, I think I'll be just fine with it. Only drawbacks I see so far are the fact that I'm done with Softball now (and I was actually doing well this year) and I won't be able to have much of a social life during the week (unless I start hanging around with Vampires...)

Life goes on.

"Soon nothing will be right at all..." [25 Jun 2003|04:11am]
[ mood | depressed ]

I'm having trouble sleeping tonight. My head is way too full of bad thoughts. I've come to the realization that I can think of nothing I've ever done that's really had any inherent value in it. Nothing I've ever done has really made enough of an impression on anyone to last (at least to the best of my knowledge). Everything I've done in life has been painfully temporary.

I can't keep a job, I can't keep a steady girlfriend, hell I have problems evn keeping the same train of thought for more than a few seconds sometimes. I'm slipping back into the old, crappy high-school "ADD/Depressed Andy." Nobody really liked him (myself included), yet somehow I can't seem to get rid of him. The real pain of it is, I know one thing won't fix it all. It has to be a combination of things. A combination that probably won't come for quite some time.

Life was great back in September...I want it to be like that again. I was making good money. I had a gilrfriend that was wonderful to me, but also everyone that knew us told me I was the greatest thing to ever happen to her. I had a car that didn't have a problem every time I got the last one fixed. I had a real life. I couldn't go anywhere without a smile. I want that again. I want to be loved and I want to be the best thing that someone has. I want to do something of real value to someone.

God I hate me

Iraq -
Although a developed and powerful nation, it is a
nation full of strife, battle, totalitarianism
and international resentment. Very cultural
and historically interesting, but overshadowed
by its modern-day self.




World Power.


Target of International Criticism.

Located in Area of Constant Struggle.

[ mood | none in particular ]

Wow...it's been a little over a week since I posted, and almost a month and a half since a real post. What's happened?

I keep hearing great new music, and my music collection (despite another hard drive crash...piece of shit) has grown to 241 albums (just over 11GB). It's getting to the point where I see things in my music directory that I forgot I had...

The big 2-1 passed without major incident. Yes I was drunk, no I didn't throw up and yes, I remember everything. I held the alcohol rather well I think. Then Bill gave me that shot of 151 and I was kinda done. Overall, I'd say that being drunk is highly (and I do stress the "highly") overrated.

Currently fighting a raging battle with myself over a certain female who is home from school. I keep telling myself that I should try to tolerate the fact that she doesn't seem to care anymore and move on, but it's tough. I don't wanna show too much care/love/concern for her for fear that she'll just shut me out completely. At the same time...I don't wanna appear as an uncaring, unfeeling asshole. I'm trying to tread lightly, but not too lightly...know what I mean? And as far as other girls go...you guessed it...still single.

I'm also still jobless. McDonald's is starting to look like my fate. I'm going with Erik tomorrow to the city center to apply for a generic manual labor job. $10/hour and it's full time...so I'd be making good money. Please please please....

I think that's about it. I'll post more if I remember it

Dilemma [10 May 2003|11:48am]
[ mood | wishful ]

Ok, so yesterday 3 amazing CD's were available for download and I'm trying to split time between them.

1. Shinedown - Leave a Whisper
2. Third Eye Blind - Out of the Vein
3. Sense Field - Living Outside

So far, Third Eye Blind is winning the time battle. I hope I can see them at the end of the month. Agora Theater...May 26th...$25...anyone interested? Please?

I decided I really wanna go to X-Fest too, but don't think I can swing the cost of it. The shame is it's only $28.50. Maybe I should start a collection for "Andy's Concert Fund," where you too can help send an underprivileged college dropout to fun concerts.
