The Capybara

Friday, February 25, 2005
For those of you that don't know, I have an online comic strip called "The Capybara". I finally updated it again today, so check it out: http://capybara.keenspace.com. I don't know if you'll think it's funny or not, but I like it. Be sure and start at the beginning of the series. Everyday I'm more and more motivated to move out of my parents house. Mostly because my dad wont let us play video games, or watch movies in his house. Meh. One of these days!

Dane Cook!

Wednesday, February 23, 2005
Hey guys. I was just thinking about one of my favorite comedians, Dane Cook. This is a funny guy. A lot. I just happened to see him on Comedy Central one time, and I was hooked. Check out http://www.DANECOOK.com. Watch out for some bad language, but soooo funny. I would recommend the Bar Mitzvah clip. Awsome. I spent a few hours yesterday vacuuming my dad's building downtown. It was a mess. I hope to be moving in there soon, if I get another job. It's free rent, but I have to pay for utilites, and I can't even afford that. Pretty sad. But SOON, hopefully. It's my sister's birthday today, and my mom made me get up at like 7:15, so Cami could open presents before they went to school. Gaaaaaah. At least I got a hot breakfast though. That's a pretty good reason to get up early. ReAnne and I went and saw the movie In Good Company last night. I thought it was a good movie, but not because it made you feel good. It was more like a Feel Life movie, if you know what I mean. One guy has a great family life, but he gets demoted at his job and a really young guy takes his place. The young guy's career is taking off, but his wife leaves him, and his personal life is the pits. I would recommend it as a rental. Good acting, and characters. Very realistic. Ok, peace out.

Moolah!

Yay, I can pay my bills this month! I went to the ATM yesterday, just to see if I had any money in there, and there was over $400 in there! My tax return came! Yay! So now I can make my truck payment, and my insurance too hopefully. Fweew. Last night, hanging out with ReAnne, I kept laughing for no reason. I don't know why! We'd be sitting there talking, or whatever, and then I'd just start laughing at nothing. I don't know what it was, but it sure was funny. :P I finally finished learning the Painter program, and today I'm gonna do a final project for that, and then I just have to finish my final project for the class! Then I just have a couple other short classes and I'm done! Woohoo! Hey all you who are reading this, you are more than welcome to leave comments, so hop to it! Yay!

Hmmmmm

Well, a couple weeks ago, my dad decided that he wanted his house to be like it was a while back, meaning no videos or Computer games. This, to me, is the pits. Videos I could deal with, but it's hard not being able to play my games. So, yesterday I made my argument to mom. Besides the fact that they're just fun, and I like them, I may be going into the video game industry, and my friend Adam and I were going to make our own game using the Half-Life 2 Source engine. But I don't own that game, and I don't know very well how it works, so I can't make my own version. Also, games are my best form of stress relief. I didn't have much stress up until now, in my life, but lately I've had some things that cause me to be stressed. Well, mom had an idea. Maybe if I put in 8 hours a day, working towards my future, meaning earning money, or doing schoolwork, or something else constructive, AND if my household duties were taken care of, then I could play games. This sounded too restrictive to me at first, but now I kind of like the idea. I need some more motivation to move forward with my life. So if my dad agrees with this idea, then I will be much happier. Now I just gotta figure out how I'm gonna make the payment on my truck this month! Sorry about my whining, but sometimes you just gotta vent.

Mah Hair!

Wednesday, February 16, 2005
I got a haircut yesterday, and they cut it a lot shorter than I really wanted it, but it's not too bad. At least it's a lot easier to deal with now. I had such a mop before. Not much else going on. Just hangin' out. My friend Kami's birthday is today and we're having a party tonight, so that should be fun. Arrivederci!

Valentine's

Tuesday, February 15, 2005
I had a great Valentine's Days yesterday, because I had someone to spend it with, which is of course the reason for the holiday. It's much better than giving little Justice League valentine cards to all your friends, with conversation hearts taped to them. Heh heh. I had some plans to eat in my dad's unoccupied building, but I went to check it out before, and it was a big mess, so I decided to drop that idea for now. Instead, ReAnne and I went to dinner with my family. My mom made a nice Italian dinner for the whole family. It was way fun. Then ReAnne and I went back to her house and watched a video with the gang. Earlier that day we'd just been hanging out, and listening to her new Michael Buble cd, which is very good. So yeah good day. Today, hopefully, I'm finally going to get a haircut. I'm getting really shaggy. I'm also going to start getting my dad's building ready for me to move in. It's not exactly the best neighborhood, so I've got to be careful, and the building's kind of a mess, because some kids broke in and got stuff all over. So, I've gotta start cleaning it up, and get a bed there at least. Right now I just need somewhere to sleep when I'm too tired to go all the way home at night.

Stuff

Sunday, February 13, 2005
I've been looking for another job lately, so that I can afford my car insurance, and car payments, and tuition, and hopefully I'll be able to move out, into the apartment under my dad's small unoccupied office building. I just have to take care of the place as my rent, so that's nice, but I still need to pay for a phone, and some furnishings, and utilities. Soooo, I applied at OfficeMax, and I'm just waiting to hear from them. I was trying for BestBuy, where two of my friends work, but it didn't work out. Hopefully soon, I'll be done with my Animation certification, and I can start looking for a real job. Last night we went to see the new movie Hitch. Very funny, I highly recommend it. It had kind of a weird style, but it all made sense after a while. So yeah, go see it. Meanwhile, I need to start on my own movies. I have a few ideas, I just need to start realizing them.

Beans

Thursday, February 10, 2005
Well, I just got an email from my old friend Andrea. She told me she's getting married. I'm not sure how I feel about that. She's been dating another old friend of mine, Devon, but they didn't really know each other before they started dating, and I've know both of them for years. It's just weird, all these people getting married. Them, and my sister, are the current ones. Huh. Last night I had a fun Capoeira class with some of the Kimber Academy kids. I teach them once a week, and it's about the only practice I get too, so it's good. It seems that my parents and my three youngest siblings are going to be moving to Italy for a year or so, on a self appointed mission. Crazy. My dad has always had crazy ideas, but lately he's been doing them, so you never know what he's going to do next. And all his ideas are working! Crazy beans.

The first one!

Wednesday, February 09, 2005
Hi-Oh to anybody who's reading this. Just thought I'd start one of these to keep track of my many exciting adventures. (Ha!) I went skiing last night with Rich at Nordic Valley, and although my toes go soo cold that I literally couldn't feel them anymore, it was lots of fun. I hope today to finish with this textbook for the Painter program, so I can do a project for it, and move on! It's taking a lot longer than I thought it would. I also have to come up with enough money to pay another months tuition, by Friday, so I'm kinda stressed about that. We'll see how that goes. It stinks not having the money to do things I want, with my friends. They keep paying for me, and I feel bad. Well, hopefully I can do some work for my dad today, and the rest of the week. Bleah!
