Mind Eraser?

I wish I could have one of those cool mind erasers like they have in MIB, but one that only erases my regrets. There’s lots of things in my life that I both regret doing, and things that I regret not doing.

But for me, they build up, and bug the hell out of me years later. I can’t seem to move on from them. Last night I was kept awake for hours because of something I didn’t do (or maybe it was something I did, depending on the way you look at the situation) when I was 12! God damnit.

Either way, as yesterday’s post stated, I was lazy as hell. I did work my full 8 hours though, and I got some stuff done. But not as much as I could reallly have gotten done. I applied to a few part time jobs. Extra money is always nice. An extra $400-500 a month could do a lot for me. 🙂

After I got home I was going to go biking to start burning off the fat that I gained at my parents house (which is very visiable), but then I got home and decided that it was still too cold to go out. God I’m lazy. I need to get my ass back going to the gym and doing the biking thing. Gah, why is staying healthy so much work?

I ended up sitting on the couch chatting with people online all night, I met someone who’s from Bakersfield, and he started talking with Blake, and then we got into this random three sided conversation. It was crazy. He and I might be doing lunch. I’m going to give him some business contacts cause he’s trying to find a job, and since I keep getting job offers, I figured I’d just pass those people onto him. (Speaking of which, I got ANOTHER call yesterday for a job down in SD)

I also met this guy who graduated from ISU in 2003 and is living in Dana Point. He seems cool, but we haven’t talked too much. I met this other random guy who apparently knows Nikki and JonJon and who was dating Matt at the SAME TIME that Matt was dating JonJon.. Very crazyness. I want to contact Nikki to get her side of the story, because of course his story makes him out to be the victim. I just like hearing both sides. 🙂

And lastly, I’ve been e-mailing this guy back and forth for like a week, he’s been wanting to hang out. But since I’ve been in Iowa I clearly couldn’t. Well last night he indicated that he wanted to hook up as well as hang out. Well I knew I had seen his profile on MySpace and could have sworn it said he was in a realtionship, so I looked and YEP, that fucker is clearly in a relationship, and his boyfriend posts like every other day that he “loves him” on his comments and shit. It’s like, WTF? What is WRONG with the gay community that they want to hook up with random people, EVEN WHEN THEY HAVE A BOYFRIEND ALREADY!?!?!?! God I hate homos.

My mom also called last night and asked how Blake was doing, cause I told her about him being in the hospital, I had to talk to someone about it. Anyways, I thought that was very nice of her. She’s got her up days. lol.

I started researching investments again for this next year, I’m looking into other companies besides T Rowe Price, and I REALLY like Vanguard. If you want to invest something, you should also check them out. I think I will open a few accounts with them this year. They have much lower Expense Ratios then TRP, which is nice. I also am enjoying my new Orange account. 🙂 I need to find a bank around here to cash my EE Bonds for free though. Since Principal doesn’t have an actual location and you have to be physically present to cash them, I can’t just mail them in like a normal check. But WF charges you to cash them if you aren’t a customer, so I have to call some other banks. I’m thinking a credit union would be my best bet. But now even THEY are statrting to charge non-customers for services. I fucking hate banks.

OG installed WP2.0 the other day and it’s very cool. I really need to get my ass in gear and update as well. Maybe this weekend, but probably not.

July 17, 2001

uly 17 [amber, "love one another"] well we went and got my car

today, it apears to be not good. i dunno yet. it’s sitting on the trailer

now, my dad did some stuff to it, and it appears to be working a bit better,

we put some stuff in the gas tank, he thinks it might be that i just had crap

in the bottom of my tank and some of it got sucked up into the engine, so

it’s sitting out there running right now. it’s been blowing smoke, but it

looks more like steam then anything. we’ll see how things go. haven’t seen

or heard from adam since yesterday, it’s kinda odd. cause he said he was going

to be online last night. but whatever, it’s only been since yesterday. lol.

other then that, not much going on here today, i have to go to that meeting

for work today at 3. i’m not really looking forward to that. i wanted to go

to that other meeting with adam. but whatever, i guess work is going to come

before other things today. i also have to tell her that i won’t be around

this weekend. hehe, that should be fun. last night after i got home i was

like going insane, my mum was giving me all these things that i have to get

done, like things that have to be done today. i still haven’t even started

them cause i haven’t had time. she also said that if i live in an apartment

i’ll have to come up with $1100 a month for rent, insurance, utilities, and

other general living expenses, that’s plus extra activite type things to and

i was like, what the hell. goddamnit. grrr. they have these new things on

the ISu campus for like olderish type transfer people, so i’m going to look

into that. i’m also hoping to go to that DCI thing tonight in ankeny. yeah.
