I have nothing to talk about.

Hello, everyone.  I’m new here on MySpace.  I’m going to work in, like, twenty minutes, and I really just don’t have anything to say in a blog right now.  You’ll hear me rant from time to time, though.  I’m pretty good at ranting.

Just to put something random here, though, let me give you an excerpt (however the hell you spell that) from my current work in progress; a novel called “Broken Glass.”  Here goes:

Im sitting at the kitchen table, watching smoke rise from my cigarette.  Its amazing how you can see smoke in the dark.  Like a ghost.  It has personality, too.  I wonder to myself what sort of dance its doing.  A waltz, maybe?  Or one of those slow, seductive Latino dances.  As it rises towards the fan, it starts to scatter.  Almost artistic.  Theres a gun shaped shadow on the table in front of me.  Thats artistic, too, in a way.  My stares keep switching between this shadow and him.  Hes just watching tv in the other room, his eyes glistening without a shred of the kindness they once held.  Those damn blue eyes.  His muffled swearing can barely be heard over the sound of whatever it is hes watching.   I blow out smoke, and extinguish my cigarette by grinding it into the table.
In a single movement, picking up the gun and charging from the kitchen table to the couch hes lying down on, I start screaming.

Stay tuned for more, or something like that.  Um . . . yeah.  That’s seriously the best I can do.  See y’all next week!


Business-Man Rob

I think I may or may not open a hobby shop in the area. Buy out the one I’ve been working for, because they have no idea what they’re doing. I think that’d be fun.

I got fired from my food-services job the other day. So that’s cool. I think I was fired for a combination of reasons, two of the major one’s being that I had facial hair and I got three shifts covered in one week. Neat, huh?

Steph and I may or may not move to Cali, depending on how things go, but I’m hoping to go to school, no matter what happens.

Anywho, I think that’s almost it.

Have fun, all!


Home Improvements

My basement apartment sucks. We had mice until recently, but I think they got tired of living in such a shit-hole. Apparently the bugs haven’t gotten that frustrated yet, though, because they’re everywhere.

On one good note they finally fixed our heating, just in time for spring. Our electricity pretty much works now, too.

The lack of working stove or good fridge doesn’t bother me much anymore. And I’ve gotten used to the paper-thin walls and ceiling which allow me to hear the constant practicing that a bass gutarist constantly puts in. The music in and of itself isn’t a problem, as I’m used to living with musicians. The problem is that this guitarist isn’t much of a musician, nor can he seem to make “music” a part of his bass playing.

The constant dripping of the sinks are almost soothing now, in an odd sort of way.

Furniture that didn’t scratch, slash, or poke me every time I sat down on it would be a plus. And in all honesty, as much as I love our air-mattress, a real bed would be nice.

The half-painted walls have always annoyed me, too. Most of the house is very white, until you get to the living room. Half-way through it seems they ran out of paint, and just couldn’t justify buying more.

The cracked windows, though they raise our heating bills and cause some major inconveniences, have never really bothered me. It’d be nice if our screen door would stop making those loud crashing noises every time a 3mph wind picked up, though.

I suppose the long and short of it is that it’s time for some home improvements. I’ve spent the last few days clearing out the storage room and trying to make some minor touch-ups here and there. I’ll see what I can do beyond that, and if I can even work something out with my land-lord to get a discount on rent for me work.

Well, I suppose that’s it.

Over and out!

Something Odd

Here

I actually did this to see if I’d entered the HTML right before I posted ti officially somewhere else. What it is is my writing sumbission (in the form of a module) for the Bioware NWN writing contest. If any of you have NWN and would rate my module well, I would encourage you to go check it out! Have fun!


Long time, no post.

Wow, so much has happened since my last posts. Here’s the update:

I’m now living in Cedar City with my girlfriend, in a nice Condo at a nice price. There was so much stress in moving, and in the adjustment period of living with someone (arguments as expected) that I’m feeling emotionally numb again. I haven’t been taking care of myself like I want to, and I haven’t felt the happienss I possess.

The basic moral, though, is just to take care of yourself. As soon as I do that, devote myself to self-healing and cultivation, numbness just can’t hold on. It breaks off within about three days.

Summarizing the rest: applying for a job with the video game company BIOWARE, planning on attending University in the fall, saving up money, working full time. The end.
