Its the fifth anniversary of my mom's death. No one is online and there is no one to talk to.
Im very sad.
Feels like my life has been all adventures lately. Need to make a post about it bit its too hard from my phone....
ooo super creepy!
sitting here, playing ff6 on emulater when i hear a knock at the door. its almost 2am and who the eff is it? i go to the door, don't open it, and ask who it is. she say's its (and i swear this is true) bambi, and she needs help. i ask her through the door, which i've now locked, how i can help her and if she needs me to call 911. she needs to get to someplace called sterling point appts off of ellsworth. i tell her i can't help her and i'm not going to let her inside, but i will call her a cab. she says ok.
i called the cab, explained the situation (to which even the dispatch was creeped out), and told bambi (who is softly sobbing) that the cab will be here in like a half hour or so, but they asked her to stay by the curb to wait.
i told aubrey and she was even more creeped out than i was. but really, as aubs pointed out, who goes to a random house at the end of a culdesac to ask for help when there are gas stations and lit streets just a block or two away?
maybe i've watched too much t.v., but i'm not opening my door to a complete stranger at two am. nope.
Gay marriage is officially legal in all fifty states now. bout time.
Pride was... exhausting. Hung with kori, nichole, nicholes gf rosie, and a giel we met there baed annabelle.
Ended up taking some molly, which was fun,but i think i may be a bit too old for it these days.
Hit up cc's, embers and Casey's. Then ithink we hit brickhouse on the way back to koris. Got to see brian coleman and met a few others.
Fell asleep and kori took me home about 2pm. Felt gross all day and realized i hadnt eaten anything for like two days. Was able to get down a bowl of chili that Dan had made but that was it.
Yesterday i made soup but i got nauseous and threw up. Managed to get a bowl down a few hours later,but threw up two more times. I never throw up, ugh.
Today is work. Kinda dreading it, but im so behind on bills right now that i must go.
Sorry for typos, on my phone.
Weird dreams about moving in with an older white guy and an asian woman. A couple days later we got in a fight. There were fists, hoses and guns involved.
Coal, our cat, killed a dove today. Dan was pretty upset. We then went on to pick wildflowers in the field behind the house.
Work is driving me nuts. Im so sick of being the "go to" guy for every shift that needs covered. Randomly put in a resume for something on craigslist, but we'll see.
So my grandpa died today...
Sounds like things are going well though. God job
so here's a funnyish story:
a friend and old coworker of mine had gone out with some friends and had like two beers. on the way home, she stopped at Wendy's for some food. she put in her order, paid for the order, then waited a super long time at the window for her food. as the line piled up behind her, they had her move off to the side to wait.
so she waits....and waits....and waits... she is about to go inside to ask what is going on when, "woop! woop!" the cops are behind her.
so wendy's apparently called the cops on her because they thought they could smell alcohol. my friend had to do the breathalizer and got a .09. the cops almost arrest her but find out she's military and instead call her sargeant to report her to him.
my poor friend.
the LJ app finally got an update!
So I proposed to Dan and we're engaged! weird lol
theres this kid i used to hang with when i was 18ish who is now on my facebook. his posts are always negative toward others, and i keep thinking i should just delete him.
today he posted that he was sick of people complaining about the internet posting spoilers about Game of Thrones. he then proceeded to let out the secret of last night's episode and basically told everyone to suck it.
i, having read the entire series, proceeded to post a few spoilers on my own to him. take that, jerk.
doing some laundry while waiting to go to work. i really like my new job, but i'd rather just be bartending at a dive place to be honest. this place is cool, but i'm serving and making a drink here and there. no worries.
for as much as I am agnostic, I believe in God and I honestly believe he (and my mom) actively watch over me and help me in times of duress.
just something I was thinking about.
i need new shoes. i just bought these like two months ago and they are all torn apart and the soles are giving out. boo.
it's so nice out...i dont wanna go to work.
also, someday i'll make a real post about what's happening in my life. i still read lj everyday?
it's been awhile since i last updated anything and i don't know where to begin? so, i will just stick to what's happening in my life now.
been working at the new gay bar/restaurant here in vancouver for the last 4 months or so. i actually really dig it and love the kids i work with. the main thorn in everyone's side was darris (drag name rhia) who was the general manager who only had a bad attitude towards customers and the crew. he is finally gone and all is right with the world.
i'm making ok money now, i should have been doing the waiter thing years ago. i also bartend now as well which is quite a bit of fun. after talking to a bartender friend of mine, she told me she made 98,000 last year alone, and it was a super slow year for her. this gives me hope that someday i'll come close.
i did make like 2500ish last month before taxes. considering i left s.e.h. (the factory i worked at before this) making about 1800 a month or so i definitely feel that i made the correct job move. when i left seh i told them i was going to be a waiter and it certainly feels awesome to have actually done it.
in other news, i'm buying a 1988 pathfinder from a friend of mine for 999. he's letting me make payments and it only has minor things wrong with it. it does need the internal thermostat replaced, but my friend already bought the part and i just need someone with the know how to do it. it should be an easy fix.
i still have never gotten a driver's license, so i'm working on that as well.
dan is doing well too. he is finally transitioning from his management position at target to being a driving instructor at a private company. he likes it, though he will lose pay and his benefits.
as a couple things are great! we love our house, chickens, cat, and bees. we have far too many eggs to eat so we sell what we can.
dan just woke up so i'm gonna get off here and get some breakfast.
yay! tmobile sent me a new phone so i downloaded the lj app!
hi! i haven't posted in awhile, so here's this:
birthday in two and a half weeks!
i got home from work yesterday at a little past 4am. i was super exhausted, but thought i should log into my class at clark to see if my big paper had been graded. i've been avoiding the site for a few days due to how i turned in the paper. see, it was like a third of my entire grade and after we turned in our rough drafts, we did a peer review on other papers. basically, you upload your paper to the site and the reviewer goes through it and annotates everything you need to work on then uploads it again under a different name so you can read it over. well, my reviewer is not a native english speaker (making reviewing his paper so much fun) and he apparently forgot to repost my paper. i asked him to please do it again, but he never responded (until 3 days after it was due saying he had deleted it and didn't understand how it was supposed to go). needless to say, since i was short on time, i just turned the rough draft in as my final copy without even looking at it again.
so, back to yesterday, i go online and see that grades have posted...100/100! omg, sweet! raised my grade from a C to a B- (which is great considering how much of the homework i DON'T do). i see i also have a detailed analysis from my instructor. he tells me the essay is one of/if not the best paper he has received this year and wants to use it as a sample in coming quarters to show students how it is done. uh..ok!
after getting the good news (and promptly NOT doing the homework) i decided to go outside to smoke. it was about...5:30am or so by this time. i go outside and pull out a cigarette when i see something weird on the lawn. i go up to it, and it's a pile of speckled feathers....that look just like the feathers on two of our chickens. it's a BIG pile. i look around and see three other big piles in assorted colors scattered about and notice the whole back yard is covered in feathers. i ran to the chicken coop and discovered all the chickens were gone... all fucking 6 of them. all that was left of the cuties was a few piles of feathers and a faint trail of feathers into the field.
i came in and woke up daniel to tell him. we both looked to see if maybe one or two got away, but whatever it was was thorough...
we're both heartbroken. we got them when they were less than a week old and raised them and knew their fun personalities... the night before dan and i were standing out at the coop and just laughing at them about how it was funny that Cycy was so much bigger than Bully, but she is the queen bee. and we talked about how dan thinks Sickly is shrinking, but it's only because the others are growing so much faster than she is. dan had come up with names for the other two last night before he went to bed: Red and Pepper.
fucking sucks, we loved those little ladies so much. like daniel said, couldn't whatever it was just be happy with one and not take all fucking six? dammit.
Bully, Cycy, Red, Pepper, Sickly, and Sadie: Daniel and i both love you very very much and we miss you an incredible amount. Say hello to my Mom in heaven, but try not to scare the fuck out of her because i don't think she's much of a chicken fan. Rest in peace babies, and i really really hope it didn't hurt and you weren't too scared.
I love you.
