1:31 am - The July Rant? No, something much better.
I've met someone. Someone incredible. My world is a better place.

I suddenly have the urge to put all my stuff in storage, quit my job, and run off to Europe indefinitely. I also want to walk from Spain to Japan, so I better get a comfortable pair of shoes.

Hey kids! What time is it?! *The voices of hundreds of shrieking children suddenly fall silent, then shout in horrifying unity* DECEMBER RANT TIME!! Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know it's not December, but let's not get hung up on technicalities. You bitches... Always nitpicking my entries, greedily cruising for a minor breech of etiquette, misuse of grammar, or failure to correctly identify the current month/evidence of a newly-developed delirium.
Anyway... Wait, where the hell was I? And I don't mean it as the half-assed rhetorical question you ask yourself after your train of thought derails and plows head-on into a school bus full of snot-nosed children (which so happen to be the same snot-nosed children who hornked up their diaphragms while belting out the introduction to this month's rant), I'm seriously asking what my physical location was at that moment. Never mind. It's not important. Well, at least not as important as making a mental note to not drink milkshakes after they have begun to smell like the contents of a can of Easy Cheese™ left under the back seat of a minivan over the 4th of July weekend. I think they might be leading me on these simultaneously thrilling and disturbing tangents. But you wouldn't love me any other way, would you? Would you?!
Perhaps it's time for me to wrap all this up into a nice, neat little chestnut for all of you to enjoy (with both hands like the good little squirrels you all are) until my next rant. In short, let's work on making 2007 a good year, because 2006 was ass.*

*The year 2006 was determined to be "ass" through a number of complex equations based on the quality of events that occurred between January 1, 2006 00:00:00 PST and December 31, 2006 23:59:59 PST. Events occurring during the year 2006 have been assigned positive and negative point values based on the quality of the event relative to my own heavily-biased standards. The equation is as follows:

Point value of good events + Point value of bad events > 0 = GOOD

Point value of good events + Point value of bad events < 0 = ASS

Holy crap! It's the 29th already? I nearly missed putting up the November rant! Let's see... Not much has been going on lately to rant about... The only thing I can think of is how I keep getting scowls from the drowsy and depressed masses when their seasonal depression sets in and I tell them that mine hits during the summer. Plus they gawk at me with a quizzical look on their ugly mugs when they inquire about my sleep schedule (which has effectively cut my exposure to daylight to about two hours a day-- not good for my tan). For the past couple months, I've been going to sleep around 4:00-6:00 AM until about 12:00-2:00 PM, which certainly has its advantages and disadvantages. In fact I've created a handy table for all you early birds out there who don't understand the whole concept of going to sleep when you freaks wake up.

Advantages
Night time is usually quiet and peaceful.
Since creativity seems to strike around 3:00 AM, I can take full advantage of it.
I have plenty of time to get schoolwork done since I'm not distracted by things going on during the day.
Since I don't have to worry (very much) about becoming a participant in surprise sex if I go outside at night, I can even go exercise.
I have time and am in the right mood to read novels I've had sitting around for a while.

Disadvantages
Night time is when all the crazies come out (myself, for example).
Creativity strikes, I'm all ready to write, and... I play World of Warcraft for three hours.
My social life is virtually nonexistent. I wake people up on a consistent basis because I forget that 1:00 AM is not everyone's "afternoon".
My exercise routine consists of playing Wii Sports for half an hour. Inside.
I sit down with a book, I get comfortable, and... I play World of Warcraft for three hours. (A pattern emerges...)

Hey! This rant turned out to be significantly more upbeat than past rants! Perhaps it's not quite as deep or thought-provoking as the rant on grace, but I think it'll find itself woven into the tapestry that is my LJ quite nicely. Anyway... umm... my train of thought derails easily around this time of night/morning. Oh, and Early Today on NBC has crappy dating tips.

Strange things are afoot at the Woodmark Hotel. I'm sure just about everyone in and around the Seattle area heard of the guy who killed four people in Kirkland and burned their house down. If you haven't, here's the story: http://www.komotv.com/news/story.asp?ID=44500. The murderer worked at the hotel, and I even talked to him on a fairly regular basis. Then today I found out that the guy who works Room Service in the morning before me was murdered on Friday (not by the same person). There's no information about it just yet, but who would have thought such powerful events would happen involving people so close? Craziness...

current mood: curious

Things get tough from time to time. But tough can mean a lot of things. Astrophysics classes are tough. Jerky is tough. Breaking up is tough. And as I've come to learn, writing a novel is tough. Lately I've been reading the Dark Tower series by Stephen King, hoping for inspiration to get me going on writing more, but just the opposite has happened. I looked over the 43 pages I've written so far just to find that it's shit, save for a few lines that I know are kick-ass, no matter what anyone says. I'm scared to death that I'm right, and that I couldn't stand up to a Crichton or King on their worst day. I've lived a big chunk of my life so far based on the assumption that I would have a career as an author, and as the first ashes of that dream get sucked into my lungs, I realize that I could be stuck as a room server for quite some time. I've spent so much time imagining and building up the world in which the story takes place (I wrote the first words of the novel when I was 13), and it could all be a waste if I can't pull a high-caliber novel of my ass within the next few years. I want to be an author more than anything in the world, but what if I'm simply not good enough? What if there's no talent there? I could go to school for decades, but it would never develop talent.
All of this comes on the heels of the realization that I should be more introspective, and that I should try to "find" myself. So many people tell me about when they "found" themselves, whether it happened in a single night or over many years, it was sort of a defining moment, and now they know themselves better than ever. I have had no such experience, and I don't see it happening anytime soon, if for no reason other than I'm in such a rut that nothing out of the ordinary ever happens to me to prompt this self-discovery. Ugh... There's so much complexity even in a relatively simple life.

The night before last, I spent two hours sewing up a series of gaping holes in the pockets of my work pants while watching Police Academy 1. Then last night as I was getting in the car after work, the seam running vertically over the ass completely blows out. Such is life.

11:59 pm - I told you I'd shoot, but you didn't believe me! Why didn't you believe me?!
I've been really busy lately, and now it's been like this for so long that it's just become routine. So routine that I've actually graphed my life out. I actually took the time to add up all the hours I spend doing particular things every week, and then did the math on paper to get a clear idea of how my life really works. When I'm bored at work, things like this come about, so don't think I've gone crazy just yet. Let me show you what I've come up with.

One Week = 168.0 Hours (100.00%)
Sleep = 56.0 Hours (33.30%)
Work = 35.0 Hours (21.04%)
Other = 32.5 Hours (19.31%)
Time with Jenay = 27.5 Hours (16.33%)
School = 10.0 Hours (05.92%)
Time with family = 04.0 Hours (02.35%)
Time with friends = 03.0 Hours (01.75%)

I know this probably means nothing to all of you out there, but I thought it was kind of interesting. Try it for yourself-- you'll be surprised what kind of insight it gives you.

current mood: frustrated

I told her that I love her. Every time I say it, I get that same feeling of fulfillment that I got from our first kiss. It's wonderful. The same kind of wonderful that I say she is, but she always denies in modesty. It's as simple and as complex as that.

In fact, don't worry about anything because, when the chips are down, man always finds a way. With no power tools at all, we survived the last Ice Age. Without the benefit of aspirin, we came through the great plague. And since then we've conquered space and developed the Rice Krispie. -Jeremy Clarkson

I want to say not much has been going on lately, but that's untrue. I've been getting to see a lot of Jenay, I've been busy at work, my family seems to want me around more than ever, and lots of other things have been happening and taking up a fair amount of time. I barely even play video games anymore! Me! Not play video games! Craziness! I'm down to 2-3 hours per week! I suppose a lot has been changing as of late, but that's to be expected, I guess. Moving out, meeting someone, and getting a practically new job will do that, I suppose. Being with someone has really filled a space in my life, as well. I don't wake up every morning dreading the day because I'll have to face it alone. I don't worry no one will be around when I need them. I don't look at myself in the mirror in disdain at the fact that the only thing my lips will touch that week is the rim of a glass. In the words of Puggy, "Life is hard, so you better find someone who'll be your partner."

Preface: No, I'm not trying to be a jerk-off by writing about my good fortune, but hey, I have to let everyone know what's shakin' in my life!

The more I see of Jenay, the happier I am that we met. I took off work the Friday before last (because I couldn't resist) to see her, and I finally got to see her again yesterday. Every little bit of time we get to spend together is fantastic. She's awesome to be around, and is just a wonderful person in general. I'd go into details about what I love about her, but it would take me far too long to write, and would be far too long for you all to read. She makes me feel loved, and fills a space in my heart and my life that I've always had empty. How could I be deserving of such fulfillment? I must be awfully lucky... Well, I dodged two parking tickets during my last stay... I want everyone to meet her so much!

Oh, yeah... I forgot to mention the other day that I was recently promoted from host at the restaurant to Room Service for the hotel. Now instead of a white shirt and black tie, I wear a gray shirt, black tie, and black vest, so I look particularly goofy. It's really worth a chuckle, so come on down to the hotel sometime. I'd love to see everyone anyway!

I know it may not mean much to any of you, but after the longest time, I finally met someone. Her name is Jenay, she goes to Western, and is completely amazing. We finally got to spend the day together yesterday, and I was simply blown away. Someone like this exists? How could my luck have changed so drastically for the better? I wish I could say more, but the whole thing still has me kind of floored!

current mood: enthralled

8:53 pm - I've been tagged, you big fuck!
Ground Rules: The first player of this "game" starts with the topic "5 weird habits of yourself" and people who get tagged need to write an LJ entry about their 5 weird habits as well as state this rule clearly.

I'm not tagging anyone because people seem to get pissy about being tagged. If you want to do it, feel free.

1. Checking outlets - Because my OCD soars to new heights each and every day, I have to check the outlets in my room each night before I go to bed. I have to make sure that plugs aren't hanging out of the outlets, and that everything is at least somewhat tidy. For some reason, I don't really care about the outlets anywhere outside my room, though.

2. Patting myself down - Before I leave the house, I have to pat my self down and make sure I have all the items on my person necessary for that trip. If I'm going to work, I need to make sure I have my wallet, watch, keys, and name tag. If I'm going anywhere else, I check for my wallet, watch, keys, and phone. I need to check everything in order at least three times, then I can leave.

3. Starting the song over - If for some reason I should have to exit my car before a song I'm listening to is over, I can't start it up again in the middle of the song when I come back. I have to start the song over, or else I feel out of sync with the song and can't get back into it.

4. The reservation computer - At work, I'm responsible for managing the restaurant floor and taking reservations on the computer at the front desk. The reservation list and floor plan are displayed on the screen, and I'm compelled to keep the floor plan straight. I make sure all the tables are lined up exactly with one another. If a table is even one line of pixels out of place, I find it difficult to continue doing my work until it's fixed.

5. Socks - I have to remove my left sock before my right. It doesn't feel right if I switch it around, and if I do, I sometimes get a sort of "phantom sock" feeling on either foot. I know, I know... I'm fucked in the head, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

All right... *cracks knuckles* Let's do this, bitch.

September
Business at work finally began to trail off, which meant that things would be a lot easier, but I would make significantly less money. I finally started school, taking psychology and philosophy. On the 28th, I got to see Audioslave in concert, which was orgasmic, to say the least. I got to see friggin' Chris Cornell in person! The Cornell! In the flesh! No bullshit! They played Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog, and Rage Against the Machine tunes in addition to Audioslave, and even brought out the almighty Spoonman himself to play the spoons (The Everett show would be the only show where he would be appearing, so that was a pretty cool treat.)! The Spoonman! The Cornell! Together! The closest thing I'll ever get to seeing Soundgarden live! I nearly fucking died!

October
Worked hard in school, worked hard at work. Had my 20th birthday, which was pretty mellow and uneventful, but good nonetheless. The whole month was like that, except that I was busy a lot of the time, which has always been characteristic of October for me. Not a bad month, but nothing to write home about.

November
Worked even harder in school and at work, gearing up for Thanksgiving and the rest of the holiday season. I fell into a really boring rut, and am still pretty much in it, but it's not necessarily bad. Really started to miss everyone a lot, but still haven't gotten off my ass to make an effort to see anyone. Gotta work on that...

December thus far
Terminally bored. Terminally lonely, particularly with Scott shoving his girlfriend in my face all the fucking time. Shithead... I miss everyone a lot, but I don't know why I can't bring myself to even pick up the fucking phone. I finished school for the quarter. I did all my Christmas shopping early for a change. I can't stand listening to Christmas music because it makes me so depressed. It really pisses me off because I love Christmas, and I can't get over my dumb self to enjoy it and not be so damn lonely. I'm looking forward to getting together with everyone soon, and getting to see Remy when she comes home! I hope everyone is feeling things out all right for themselves, and is trying to have a good Christmas. Ugh... what a year...

OK... I know it's been quite a while. I've been a terrible online friend and a practically nonexistent real-life one, but a lot has been going on. I thought I'd make a little interim entry which will lead into a larger post a little later, and this is the product. I should probably get to sleep before I start to ramble, but you'll hear from me again soon.
