Month: January 2010

talked to my parents fairly extensively about my future plans. naturally, this means i have to update my xanga by ruminating endlessly on the topic. perhaps more importantly: i guess my dad was “released” from his position at the msu radio station. turns out they work by a “last in, first out” system when it comes to budget cuts. this…

i sorta slowed down in my oscar-winning films plan. or at least, i forgot to write about them after watching them. kramer vs. kramer was amusing, but sad. ordinary people was really good, i guess, but again with pretty depressing subject matter. i’m glad i’m not clinically depressed, only sad some of the time. chariots of fire was hella dull.…

i can’t believe it’s only saturday. things are happening tonight – parties, bars, etc. probably. but my body is telling me that it’s a nice, quiet sunday night and that i should just put a movie on and go to bed. which is what i’m planning on doing. i didn’t even shower today. i haven’t not showered in a long…

i talked to emily again. it had been about a week. felt nice, i guess. she’s definitely up there among the “best friend” echelons, so just cutting things off completely would have been a foolish option. besides, after the whole alex incident, i feel like i can make mature and thoughtful decisions that don’t involve me ripping boards down, breaking…

i forgot what having to write fiction for a class is like. it’s stultifying. my creative processes feel like a nail that has been bitten down to the base. i haven’t even written that much, either. we’re supposed to do 250 words a day. i’ve done maybe 1000 words total over two weeks. i’m pretty bad at math, but i…

here’s what life is like: you’re watching the basketball game, having a beer or two because basketball is way more fun with a little buzz. don’t deny it, it’s true for any sport. a girl sends you a text message, imploring you to come to el azteco for her birthday. you really can’t say no – she’s a nice girl,…

i read a graphic novel today, blankets, that is ian’s “textbook” for his comic class. it was, in my humble double-english major opinion, absolutely fantastic. the storyline dealt primarily with god and relationships, one thing i generally distance myself from and another that i find life dictated by far too often. the combination of visuals and verbiage was striking –…

what an exciting weekend! i doubt martin luther king, jr ever had this much fun on his birthday. thursday night: bar night. we went to crunchy’s, brandon promising us karaoke and maggie, neither of which came true. instead we waited half an hour in line (at 9:30 on a thursday what?), shared a bucket, had some laughs and went to…

i’m probably a narcissist due to the fact that i can very happily spend a half hour re-reading my own facebook status updates. i mean, hell, that is some witty shit, though. i really can’t fault myself for being so awesome. i’ve been having some of the worst farts of all time tonight. it’s only been getting worse. i’m worried…

my new years resolution was to stop pussyfooting around. for the record, i am not living up to that. but i guess that’s the most important part of new years resolutions: failing and then forgetting that you failed by the end of the year and doing it all over again. repetition is the spice of life. saturday night drew, brandon…
