I am a mount fiend. Patch hit yesterday so I went around Azeroth buying all of my mounts, and spent 2300g doing so, but I have my Albino Drake dammit.Sec's Albino Drake
And Sec has a new doo. Not sure if I like it but we'll keep it around for a bit.Sec's New Doo

Time to post stuff I guess. Lot's happened since my last update. Or not much depending on how you might look at it. Mom and Dad are still in Louisiana and I miss them. I really don't get to see them at all anymore and that hurts. They've settled in nicely and Grandma & Grandpa have moved into their new home. Donna and I have visited down there twice and their place is really nice.
On for more of the same. I'm still living with Donna with her parents. I know Donna wants to move out and so do I. I know I'm disappointing her. The prospect of owning a house kinda frightens me actually. And every time we look into a home loan we wonder how the fuck can anybody afford to live around here on the salaries that people make.
Speaking of salaries, I'm still working at the DM Group, although they've changed their name to DirectMail.com (how snazzy). I'm not sure what to think about that place. Sometimes I just utterly hate how stupid people are, especially the ones that make my job harder and that makes me hate the place. But some days everything just goes right and it's a great job. I swear if Laura and Chris weren't there I'd have gone insane by now. Regardless, I want to make more, I think I'm worth more and can do better. Unfortunately I have no idea what I want to do. I love working with computers, pretty much anything that can be done with a computer I will find fascinating. At least I'm getting off my ass in that regard. Resume up and out.
Marriage is scary prospect. I love the hell out of Donna but it's still scarey, but at the same time also exciting. Knowing that I'll have someone by my side able to stand by me through whatever for the rest of my days just fills me with hope. It makes the crap in my life bearable. It's not an enourmous amount of crap, just the average stuff that most people have to go through. And truth be told that's all I want, I really just want a normal life. I don't want to be some super important person that everybody relies on.
You might think that's awfully sad of me to want to be so mediocre but I don't see it that way. The world if full of normal people, they just don't know it yet. They think they're special, some are, most aren't. They'll live a normal life too and that's still a good life to lead. Life seems to be able to throw a monkey wrench in things even for an normal life to give you a kick to make sure you're still alive.
I'm done for now. Some of that was just rambling thoughts in my head. I may completely change my stance on things depending on my mood.

OK. Time for an update regarding my parents moving and whatnot. Well, they left. They left a little over a week ago. They're living in the shell of my grandparent's house that Katrina left and they're slowly building it back up. They're fixing the place up so they can live in it a bit until they find a place of their own.
I am currently living with Donna's family until we can move out with Laura. That is being held off by Laura's surgery which is at the end of the month and she should be back up in about May. Hectic times but things are going okay. I'm saving quite a bit of money by not having to pay rent, lol.
That's all I can think of right now. Later

Magic Mojo: 7
You scored 87% Subtlety, 60% Leadership, and 46% Forethought!
|Yours is a rare breed these days, as many people prefer to go in with their guns out. But, that doesn't mean it's better than what you're doing. Real Thievery IS subtlety, but unless you know what you're doing and where you have to do it, you won't last a second. Make sure your team knows how to handle the given situation, because even the greatest team can be driven into the ground by poor planning. Worst thing that happens is a mutiny, so be on your toes. Be patient, be forwarned, and if you don't want to be armed, at least be armed with a good escape route. However, you might want to consider art theft; The guys who stole Munch's "The Scream" went in in broad freakin' daylight, and just ripped it off the wall. Art can be difficult to move, but it sells for just the right amount. |
Ideal Targets: Museums
Ideal Heists: Art Theft.

Laura and I were doing some good old-fashioned pencil fighting today and we had to take a break to do some work. Then shortly after our break I hear, "Come over here so I can finish you off."
I just busted out laughing and now she's traumatized.
Everyone make fun of her.

Got a call from my grandmother in Ohio, my mother's mother. She broke down almost immediately on the phone. She says she's not angry with my parents and I'm not sure if I believe that or not. I think my grandmother percieves the move as somewhat of an irresponsible thing to do with me still "living at home" and all. But my grandmother still sees me as this little child and not the 22 year old adult that I am, and not capable of taking care of myself. She told me I can always pack up everything and head north and live with them. Mom and Dad said the same thing last night, but the direction being south of course. It's nice to know that I've got options in case the shit just totally hits the fan.
Grandma was also telling me how thankful she is that I have Donna, and that it's great that I have someone close to me like her. My grandparents absolutely love Donna. My grandmother also makes me ask how in the hell Donna's mother can be so obtuse about us moving in together before being married. Donna's grandmother and mother may be quite religious but my grandparents went to church every Sunday for, I'm making a pretty good guess here, their whole lives; and Grandma still does charity work through the church. And I haven't told her our plans yet, but I'm 99.9999...% sure that she will have no problem with us moving in together. They're so much more open-minded and, for the most part, with the times.
I'm guessing that Mom and Dad are going to get a bit of a chewing out by Grandma and Grandpa, especially b/c they were just down here and there was no mention of such things. I myself think they could have given a bit of fair warning. They said that they didn't decide to do it until this past Sunday but I mean this wasn't an out of the blue kinda decision. They had to have been thinking about the possibility for some time and it would have been nice to know that they were unhappy with their jobs and that moving was a possibility for them. And I guess I'm a little mad at them for keeping me in the dark like that b/c it seems a little irresponsible on their part b/c it totally affects me and not just them. It seems kinda selfish on their part. But that might be my selfish point of view thinking about what's going to happen to me.
Mom and Dad are supposed to be moving out at the end of February so I need to start puting my stuff in storage around the 25th.
I just realized, we're going to have at least 4 PS2s in the apartment. I own 2, Donna owns 1, Laura owns 1, and I think Jenna owns 1 as well if she moves in.
Anyway...more to come later.

If there were ever a time for an update to the LJ. Well...I'm at Donna's house playing WoW and I get a call from my parents saying that they need me to come home and that we need to talk. I'm thinking "Oh shit, last time I got this call they found out my grades at UMBC were shit and I had to get a real job." I thought Donna's mother had called my parents and told them that I wasn't taking classes this semester and they freaked out or something. Totally not the case.
I get to my house and my parents tell me to sit down. Then they tell me they are moving. "Okay, that's fine...they don't like the house they're in." Then they tell me they are moving back down to Slidell, Louisiana. "Okay, WTF!?!?!?!?"
I didn't know what to do or say. I mean, where does that put me?? Sure I was planning on moving out with Donna and Laura but christ...not on these circumstances and not so soon. They're planning on moving out in about 1.5 - 2 months. I'm just floored by this. They said that they are unhappy with their jobs and that the only thing that was really keeping them here was me. When Dad went down to help my grandparents after the hurricane he actually got a few job offers right then and there so it's not going to be a problem for him to get a job. Mom is going to have to look around a bit when she gets there but I'm sure she'll find something no problem.
After we have our talk and the emotions have finished pouring out of all of us, I start to head back to Donna's to tell her the news. Now, I don't think it was really angry driving, more like emotional driving, but it was fast. Much faster than one should go on those roads. It was my release from the emotional state that I was in.
I think Mom is taking it hardest. This will be the longest(time wise) and fartheset away we've been from each other since I was born. I'm her only child and it must be painful for her. That's also the first time I had seen Dad cry too. It's one thing to just be living a couple miles away in the same area but add 1000 miles in between and it just hurts.
I've talked to Donna's mother and she'll allow me to stay there, I practically live there anyway, until we are finally ready to move out on our own. Rent free no less, so I can save up some money and pay off bills.
Okay, that's all I have for now. More as it arrives.

Well, got an update from my mother about my family that lives in Louisiana. My grandparents went to my Aunt Cari's house in Texas and my Aunt Becky took their kids and farm animals to a friend's house, not sure where, but my Uncle Bobby has to stay there b/c he's an EMT. Also the levee broke near the hospital in New Orleans that I was born in and the neighborhood is under 6-8 feet of water. My family lives in a city called Slidell. The eye was about 10-20 miles east of Slidell. Mother nature can be a bitch.

Ok...time for my bi-yearly update it would seem. Not like anybody actually reads this but I'm kinda bored at work and I need something to do. So I got this crazy ear infection thing, not sure how but I did. It started hurting like on Monday...I thought it was just becuase I rubbed my ear raw when cleaning it out. I let it go thinking it would just heal and go away....it didn't...it got worse and it hurt like a bitch. So I finally put that great health insurance that I have through the company to good use. Went to the doctor and Wednesday. He told me that it was the worst that he had ever seen and that if I had let it go on for like another day or so then the infection would have gone to my brain and that I would be in the hospital....he was about to have me go to the hospital right there but he prescribed some meds and they seem to be doing the job. So I left the office and headed over to Giant and picked up the meds. The 2 bottles of pills and 1 bottle of ear drops cost me about $60.00 which is good because if I didn't have the insurance it would have cost me about $200.00.
TIP: If you can get health insurance...get it. It may seem like a waste of money at the time but when you need meds it's a life saver.
On the upside....**fanfare** NINE INCH NAILS tickets go on sale Saturday morning at 10am...I will be purchasing 4 tickets for myself, my lady friend (Donna), Jehan, and his lady friend (most likely his sister...ewww).
Work is going okay. The days are not nearly as long as they used to be...I actually get out of work when I'm supposed to now, sometimes.
That's about all that I have to say right now. I have work to do now go away.
