Feb. 16th, 2010 @ 01:21 pm Fuck You Governors State!
I am getting more and more pissed off with Governors State each day. Last week I turned in a paper that I spent HOURS on, now granted I understand it wasn't the best paper I've ever written, but I ended up getting a C on the paper which pissed me off when I got it. I did what the teacher said and still got a C, it would have been at least a B paper at Columbia. Then today I get my other paper back and get a C+. I don't get it. I don't understand what the hell is going on. I spend all this time on these papers doing what is expected and still get average grades! I understand there were a few grammatical errors in the last paper because Microsoft Word said so, but I just couldn't figure out how to fix them. But there were some things said that I didn't do that I did indeed do.

I've pretty much decided not to continue on with my education at Governors State. First off I can't get financial aid, all I can get is student loans which will just add on to my already massive debt. I don't want my dad paying for something that I don't care about nor do I want to do this anymore. I only have so much money left and I'll be damned if I spend it on something that's not going to help me in the future. I need to figure out what to do though before I tell my dad all of this. I understand that I am 25 years old (going to be 26 in less than 2 weeks) so I can make these decisions, but I have nowhere to go, I have to live at home right now. So I need to have a job or to get this internship I applied for yesterday. I might have a job at PetSmart by the end of the week, just had an interview I felt went very well. But we'll see what the future holds for me, because Governors State is definitely NOT for me!

Feb. 11th, 2010 @ 12:28 am Abracadbra-Doo!
Hey all, I really need to keep up on this! Anyway, today I got 2 Blu-Rays at Wal-Mart (Carrie & Child's Play) together for $20, which is great because I was almost ready to pay $17 for Child's Play alone at Best Buy. Glad I found out about the double pack. I also got the new Scooby-Doo movie "Scooby-Doo! Abracadbra Doo" which was pretty good, average I'd say.

Anyway, not much more is going on. I don't know if I posted about this but the wall in our shower fell apart and we've been out of a shower for weeks now! I've been showering at the health club but I would really rather shower at home. My dad has a guy coming tomorrow (hopefully) to give him an estimate about completely redoing the bathroom, the tiles, the bathtub, the walls, the floor, the toilet, everything! It will be nice once it's done I can tell you that!

Oh yeah and like an idiot I spent just about $1000 in a little over 2 weeks! I don't even know where it all went. I know I bought a few DVDs and I did end up buying the iPhone and some accessories and stuff (totaling $340), I spent about $100 on dinner for my dad and I over the course of 2 nights. But jeez!

I have a job interview with PetSmart in Orland on Monday so I'm hoping that goes well. I'd like to have a job again after being unemployed for 7 months!

Jan. 25th, 2010 @ 11:39 pm Indiana Really Sucks
The Way You Make Feel Is: excitedexcited
Do they even give people driver's tests in Indiana? I had to have counted at least 10 or more times when someone cut me off, or changed lanes without a signal or cut across a parking lot and almost hit me. People in Indiana are just plain stupid. Today after depositing my large check into the bank, I made a trip out to Merrillville. I haven't been out there since August, so it was a nice thing to do with my time. I ended up buying nothing but something to eat, but whatever. I just had the worst time with the idiots out there. It had begun to snow earlier so by the time I headed back around 4:30pm it was snowing pretty bad. But I got home no problem.

After I pay my tuition this week, I will have over $1100 left. Some of that will go towards credit cards, some will go towards a ticket I might be getting (I may have gotten a ticket from one of those red light camera things) but then the rest goes to me! At first I was going to buy a Wii (again, I already had one back in 2006, sold it back in April of last year) anyway, after much thought I don't think I'm going to get one. I think I might buy an iPhone. I don't know just yet. I know I will be buying "This Is It" tomorrow and I want to buy the William Castle Collection too. Anyway, I'm not sure what to do with the rest. We shall see!

So something else that I've been getting into lately is Power Rangers. Now I know I've been into PR for a while now, even before I vacated LJ I was into it. But now I'm REALLY into it. I've gotten through all of Zeo (which I had seen a few episodes here and there before) all of Turbo (which is still the worst to me) all of In Space (one of the best seasons out there, up to par with the original series, almost better) and I just finished Dino Thunder today. I am now in the process of preparing episodes of RPM (which is the last series, that was on last year) and I'm looking forward to it, I've heard it's a great series.

The Way You Make Feel Is: hopefulhopeful
Hello all! It has been 2 1/2 years since I posted on here. June 23, 2007 was the last day I posted on here and I have decided to return for a fun filled time of new entries!

A TON of shit has happened in those 2 1/2 years. I graduated from Columbia in May of 09! So that was exciting. I quit Blockbuster twice since I last posted. Erin was going to leave Blockbuster and go to Starbucks in September of 07 but she didn't, but then took a promotion to District Manager in April 08 and I quit in May because Roxanne (a.k.a. the worst and dumbest manager ever to grace Blockbuster) took over the Tinley Park store. I worked at Toys R Us for about 2 or 3 weeks in May/June 08 and went back to Blockbuster at the end of June 08. I was promoted to shift leader in August 08. I then asked to transfer to another store in September 08 and Rich chose to ignore my plea. I then reported Roxanne to corporate. Everything I reported was 100% true, and yet Rich called me out on it and unethically yelled at me as if I did something wrong. I was then transferred out of the Tinley Park store (after being there for 5 1/2 years, only Kinjal had been there longer than me at that point) and went to Orland Park where I worked with Kim for 7 months before finally officially quitting in July 09. Since then I worked at Sears for 3 1/2 days and have had no other job since. I guess I really shouldn't have quit since I've been unemployed for over 6 months now and it really sucks. Since the unemployment I have decided to go back to school and get an English Education degree. I just started at Governor's State last week. I'm a little nervous about this, because I am starting an academic path that I haven't been on in years. So we'll see how this goes, I hope I can succeed at it without fucking up too much.

Other than that no much has happened since I stopped posting on here. It's fun to look back at the older entries, but seriously when I moved to MySpace in 06 and ultimately when I made the permanent move to Facebook in 07 I haven't posted journals like this. I miss this and it kind of sucks I have nothing to look back on from 07 until now so I will try my best to continue to post journals on here, mostly for myself since all of my friends no longer post on here. I noticed most people stopped posting on here in 2006, including me. I guess 2006 was the year of MySpace. Nobody even posts on MySpace anymore either, it's all about Facebook now. Which I am completely fine with.

WELCOME BACK... to myself!

Jun. 23rd, 2007 @ 04:18 pm The Triumphant Return...
Well, I have been posting on MySpace for over a year now. I can't believe that it actually happened. Last year before I made the move to MySpace I didn't even know how to use MySpace, then all of a sudden I did and I moved there after spending almost 2 full years on here posting. I have returned for this ONE TIME ONLY POST. I DO NOT plan on posting here again, but I just wanted to check it out and see what is going on here. A lot has changed on here as well as in my life. Last fall both my dog and my mother died. So those were kind of sad moments in my life. Both Erin and I still work at Blockbuster, however Annie and Dawn left. The story with Dawn is wayyyyy too long and complicated, if you want to read it check out the Blockbuster Hall of Shame at www.myspace.com/themonkees29. However Matt got fired last June so that was funny as hell. I'm not sure if anything else has changed majorly, but it was fun to post here. I miss this place, but lets face it MySpace and Facebook are just wayyyyy better than LiveJournal. Burn.

I was cleaning up my basement (a project I've been working on for a long, long time) and I found a whole bunch of my writings including the original Halloween Night that I wrote in 1999. And every time I pick some crap up I find another Power Rangers toy that I'm trying to find all of and keep them perserved. I still have a shitload of toys to find.

Okay, I've been thinking about this all fucking day, and I am finally ready to put this into words. Today I post numerous things that pissed the royal fucking hell out of me!

First off, today was my last day in my Aesthetics & Storytelling class, which is where that fucking annoying EJ asshole was. Some of the stuff that really pissed me off with him, was he would laugh at EVERYTHING! Every time he said something, it was followed immediately with a gay ass laugh. And he would be the only one laughing. He would be the only laughing too. He would also get all pissed off, right away if he was told not to do something. Today he said something about someone's presentation, and I can't remember what he said, but the teacher told him to stop it, and right away he started getting pissed at him. He when he gets pissed he'll start saying nasty shit out loud like no one can hear him. This guy is a complete moron. He showed us this dumbass "film" that him and his friends shot, with him "rapping". Let me just say this, he can't rap worth a shit! Also, his presentation was dumb as hell, it didn't follow the proper requirements, and he thinks he can turn in a paper, then turn in another version of that paper the following week. I don't know what school he thinks he goes to, but at Columbia papers are turned in on time.

Next up is his dumbass drug addicted friend. First off, I have to ask, why do people think it's cool to smoke and drink? Now, I admit I drink occasionally. And when I say occasionally, I mean occasionally. Annie gave me a bottle of Grey Goose vodka on my 21st birthday in 2005. I still have half of the bottle. Anyway, this guy is just as bad as EJ, except that he knows when to backoff. He still says dumb shit. Today, we looked at this girl's presentation about homeless people. She was stating she was afraid to ask these homeless people if she could take their pictures. The teacher said he was sure if she had given the people like a dollar or something they would have had no problem with it. Then this guy comes out and says "Not just money, they'll do it for cigarettes" then the girl said "Well, I don't buy cigarettes". That's all she said, she didn't say it with an attitude or anything. So he gets all pissed off, saying something I can't remember. Then as we were leaving he was talking to EJ and said something across the lines of "The little rich bitch hasn't ever seen homeless people" or something like that. I remember him calling her a rich bitch though. And these people think that they are going to get somewhere in the industry of film or TV.

The last person I want to bitch about from this class was this girl Marri (Prounnced with a long 'A') she was probably the worst of the bunch. She constantly needed attention and had to sit there and proclaim she knew everything. She is "friends" with Molly (who I thought was cute) and she constantly badmouths her in front of everyone and makes her look stupid. I hate people like that. Marri is not doing it sarcastically either. She'll repeat herself all the time if she feels not everyone heard her the first time. And everytime someone doesn't know how to do something, she'll right away become an expert on that said problem. I HATE people like that! Plus, she is just plain ugly. She has this big ass forehead and manish shoulders. She complained that she was in one of her own projects and she looked terrible THAT DAY. All I could say in my head was, you look terrible EVERYDAY!

Today I must have noticed at least 3 people who were weaving in and out of traffic without turn signals and cutting people off. This all took place on either 294 or 55. It was unbelievable. Well, I'm tired of bitching, I'm glad I got that off my chest and now I'm back to my movie.

Today was a pretty long day. And it's 3AM and I'm posting on my LJ. So this is a quick overview of what I did today, before beddy bye time.

I got up at 11AM to get ready for school. I headed downtown for a very short day, turning in our scripts and taking a quiz. After less than an hour of class I returned home, only to stay at home for about 20 minutes. Then my brother and I headed out to Westmont to visit our favorite video store, then I headed to JCPenney to get some new sunglasses and then to Disc Replay to sell some DVDs so I would have a little bit more money this week (I bought a stupid $20 DS game yesterday which caused me to have very little money left until payday). Then I ordered pizzas and return to my brother's apartment. By this time it was 8:30PM. So we ate pizza, then I talked to Jill for awhile and then it was 10:45PM and we left to go downtown to see Transformers: The Movie at the Music Box. First off, I have to repeat myself, I love seeing midnight movies at the Music Box because everyone just has a great time. Like seeing people clap when Leonard Nimoy and Orson Welles' names come up on screen, it's just great. The movie was over around 1:22AM and we departed from the theater, not returning to his apartment until 2:30AM. The guy at the theater said that the summer schedule of films would be out in about 2 weeks. I can't wait to see what movies they will be playing there in the next 3-4 months.

Well, that was my long day. Tomorrow begins another long ass day, but this one not being anywhere near as fun. I get to work for 6 hours, then work for at least another 3 doing goddamn inventory! Dawn told me "you got out of the last one", that means nothing at all. I've done so many inventories at Blockbuster that my head should have blown up. I'm sure I'm working with Matt too, and that is something that will push me over the edge tomorrow. My brother got a job at Blockbuster in Palos working with Jazz. Sunday I'm going to end up working on a 10 page paper due on Wednesday all fucking day. I'm not looking forward to that either.

Well, I'm going to be because I am quite tired.

I don't quite understand this whole immigration shit. Twice all ready, these dumbass rallies have caused me hell. The first one caused me problems on the train and today's caused me to have to take the train as opposed to driving and that caused me to have to stay downtown an extra hour.

Now my problem is, what the fuck is the problem? If you're an illegal immigrant then you should have to leave the US. That why they are called ILLEGAL immigrants. I'm sorry, I probably sound like a dick, but I'm not the only one to think this way. It would be the same thing if I wanted to move to France without becoming a citizen. I shouldn't be allowed to live there. Now, if you are a legal US citizen, you became a citizen, I got nothing against you. You're a legal citizen of America. So why is this so damn hard to understand? I just don't get it. I don't mean to come off as an idiot or an asshole, but this is how I feel. I don't want people to be shit out of luck, but it's illegal to live in this country without being a citizen. If they allow people to live in this country without being a citizen, then I'm going to go around and start breaking the law and I'd better get away with it.

On a lighter note, the end of school is closing in and I can't fucking wait! I've only got two really big project left. One I will complete tomorrow and the other I'll have to work on throughout the week. When I get out of school I will begin cleaning out my basement, again, and hopefully riding my bike every day or close to it.

I hate, hate, hate, hate semi-trucks!

All these stupid semi-trucks are all over the place out here because they are doing construction on I-80 and the semi-trucks will get off to avoid the construction, which is bullshit, because then it causes all of us to have backups on the roads. On my way home today, on Halsted, it was all backed up thanks to semi-trucks.

I also hate people who have to stop and look at people who are pulled over or look at an accident. They will literally slow down to stare. It's none of their fucking business but they must back us all up so they can be nosey. Twice on the expressway, the entire expressway was backed up. I thought there was an accident, and there was on the other side and the traffic was all backed up so they could stare at it. That's unbelievable!

Apr. 23rd, 2006 @ 02:03 am What are the Top 100 Films?
The Way You Make Feel Is: okayokay
This is something difficult to figure out. But, having a retarded discussion with Matt today made me think about it. What would I consider the top 100 films? This discussion was about how he felt Napoleon Dynamite was the best film of all time. I totally disagreed and said Napoleon Dynamite wouldn't even show up on my top 100. I enjoyed the film, but there are so many other films better than that. Matt's just a dumbass that's all. The moron hadn't even heard of Ben-Hur which makes him the second person I've met who hasn't even heard of that film. Ben-Hur is definitely on my top 100, but what else? Soon all on here will know, when I post my top 100 films of all time. Stay tuned for that!

Remember a while back when I spoke about this dickhead in my Wednesday night class? His name was EJ or Elton John? Well, he strikes again. And this time he pissed off the teacher. We had a substitute today and EJ just kept laughing his ass off at classic movies like "Citizen Kane" and "American Beauty" and he was really pissing the teacher off and he finally said something to him. I can't stand this guy at all. He really drives me nuts!

I know everyone loves my bitching about my job, so I just had to update this.

I've been hearing from other people that Erin is beginning to show signs of just not caring anymore about Blockbuster. Which is a complete shock because ever since I've started working there she has been all about the store, how our sales are and how the store looks. Now, she just doesn't give a fuck anymore. And my days are becoming numbered, because now I am seriously considering quitting without having a job lined up. It's a big decision but by the time school is out in May, I may just not be working there anymore. Dawn told me she's considering quitting as well. I also have a feeling that by the end of the year the people working there now, won't be there anymore. Ed has left, and either Dawn or I will be the next to go. I've even been told that Erin is getting her resume together for another job. So this is extremely interesting to learn. The Blockbuster crew that has been together for 3 years (Erin, Annie, Kinjal and myself) are completely falling apart. I never thought one man (Rich) could cause all of this. I don't ever think that Kinjal will leave, but it would be quite interesting to find out if Annie is considering it too. Rich has totally gotten to me today. He called up, and usually he'll say "Hi, Steve, can I talk to Dawn" or whoever is the MOD. Not today, he interuppted my phone greeting, then said hello? And I said yes. Then he said "Let me talk to Dawn". Not "Can I talk to Dawn". I didn't even know who it was. I actually thought it was one of her kids. So I told her whoever was on the phone was very rude. She gets on the phone and he says that not selling passes is unacceptable. Dawn said she can't force people to buy the passes, and he said yes you can. Rich was always an asshole, but now he's getting so much worse. And that is why he is driving at least 3 people out of Tinley Park. A store that has had, for the most part, the same crew for a good solid 2 years. I am just completely shocked that this dickhead of a man could do this.

I'm being forced to go to church tomorrow. I don't want to go. I tried to avoid my dad since yesterday. But, he brought it up. I just don't understand why he wants me to do something that I don't want to do. I understand all he does for me, and I completely appreciate it. But, I hate going to church. It's a waste of an hour of my life, really. Easter is not that big of a thing to me anymore. Maybe if my mom was up and about it would be, but not anymore. Easter always sucks because it's always during a time in school where I have a lot of project due. And I do. I have two papers to write for this week, as well as an additional 10 pages of my script for my writing class. That's a ton of shit to do. So, it's hard to relax and enjoy the holiday when I have so much to do. And to add to it, I got this big ass decision to make about quitting my job or not.

Well, I'm about to go apply to Target online right now, so that's all I'm going to bitch about now.

I don't get Good Friday. I understand it was the day Jesus died on the cross, and I'm not talking about that part. I'm talking about people acting like it's the greatest vacation day of all time. Kids were all over the place today and I go to get on the noon train and the train is filled with parents and their annoying little kids. So it's Good Friday, so everyone goes downtown? I don't get it. When I was a kid and had Good Friday off, I sat around and didn't do anything or went outside and did stuff. I didn't head downtown. I almost didn't get a seat. That makes me mad!

I've been recording episodes of Power Rangers off of Toon Disney and ABC Family in order to make good quality DVDs. But, they jump around with episodes so much that it's gonna make it super hard to get episodes in order, or even get the episodes at all. I have a few episodes that I recorded when the episodes were first on during the mid-90s. I have recorded 2 of them into my computer, but have at least 6 more, probably more. I just can't find the tapes.

Now that I have a bit more time I shall update a bit more...makes sense...

Right now I am sitting at the Columbia library waiting for my train. I ditched out of class a tad early because I have a bit of a headache. The reason Matt was being such as an asshole on Saturday was because of this. Dawn had to tell him FOUR TIMES to tuck his shirt in. At one point he told her "Yeah, I'll get right on that" then walked away without doing it. He was being ultra-cocky about selling so much stuff and even said at one point that he won't get fired because of his selling skills. He even went as far as calling Dawn a bitch behind her back to Erik. Dawn sat down and talked to him in the back. This just led to more bitching from him. He said that it was Dawn's fault he wasn't selling anything because she was being mean to him and upsetting him. Then he demanded she call Erin at 11PM so he could talk to her. But, she refused to do that. Throughout the last hour of class he gave her attitude. Spending 15+ minutes in the bathroom, without saying anything about where he was going and spending a full hour straightening the wall. We ended up not leaving the story until almost 1AM. I know this guy is new, but there was no reason whatsoever for him to be talking to her like that. No one talks to anyone else like that at my job.

Apr. 10th, 2006 @ 04:14 pm A Quick Update
The Way You Make Feel Is: happyhappy
Just before I head off to school I thought I'd update the whole 2 people that read this journal...

I know it's been a while since I updated, like a week or so. But here is the new shit from my life.

The new guy at work, Matt, is a complete dick. Or at least he was on Saturday. Treating Dawn and Erik like crap, being way too sarcastic and getting on everyone's last nerve. I don't really have the time to go into detail, but I should be able to later.

I have just finished another season of Power Rangers (downloading anyway). So far I've downloaded the three seasons of Mighty Morphin..., Zeo, Turbo, In Space and Lost Galaxy. Completing 7 full seasons. I just began downloading Lightspeed Rescue. I finished the first disc of Zeo on DVD as well. So...yea!

Well, that's about it. I may have more, but until I have more time. BYE.

The Way You Make Feel Is: sickstill sick
This past weekend sucked some major ass. Yesterday was horrible because I felt like shit, then I had to fucking work. Then today started out pretty good. The White Sox opening game started out great. It had a great unveiling of the banners of their divison, A.L. and World Series winnings. Then they had this totally kick ass national anthem where at the end of it two fighter jets flew directly over U.S. Celluar Field. I swear to God it was the coolest thing I've ever seen. But, then it started to rain. And we stayed there for a good solid 2 hours waiting for the rain to stop. We ended up leaving at the end of the 5th inning and it was midnight! So that really pissed me off.

I hate hate hate hate HATE Blockbuster. I cannot stand it anymore. And I'm not exactly sure why. Sometimes things that Terrence does annoys the shit out of me. I like Terrence, he's a cool guy, but sometimes I feel like he wants things done to benefit himself. Today I wanted to leave an hour early and Terrence wanted me to stay there so I could straighten the store, so he could get out of there on time. Honestly, I usually wouldn't care, but today I did get a tad pissed because he let Kinjal leave an hour early. So I bitched, which I try not to do, and he finally caved in and let me leave.

Today I felt like shit, and still do a tad. I have a cold, which isn't too bad, but my ear got all stuffed up for some reason and the ear drops didn't work. I'm hoping somehow it will clear up during my sleep.

I have finished the 2nd season of Power Rangers and currently working on the third right now.

Mar. 25th, 2006 @ 01:52 am I'm Back, Baby!
It's been a while since I posted. But, I thought I'd drop by and update this fucker.

First of all, my spring break has gone by all too fast. It seems like last Saturday was two days ago, not a week. It sucks because I didn't do anything with my break. Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday I didn't even leave the house, which is very sad. Sunday I won't leave the house either, probably. I have to work tomorrow which sucks ass. I'm very seriously considering quitting my job at Blockbuster. It's not final, but I'm starting to think about seriously. The only thing that keeps pulling me away from doing it, is that I won't have a job come summer. And it will be hard as hell trying to find a job in the summer. I will be applying at the new Best Buy soon. I won't get hired now, but I might come summer. I was told if I had applied and asked for two or three days I would have gotten hired. They pay their part time employees $8 an hour, which is over a dollar more than I make at Blockbuster.

Monday I went out with my bike and decided to ride to Family Video. I used to ride there everyday, six years ago. I haven't ridden up there in six years. So I take my bike out and I didn't even get out of the estates and my legs were killing me. Thanks no exercising for 6 years. I had no idea that would happen. I do plan on riding more and building up my leg muscles so I can ride that far again. I used to ride my bike 6 miles a day in the summer of 2000. So I will build those muscles up again.

Tuesday, Ian came over and we spent the day playing board games and stuff. Wednesday I sat around and did nothing. I wanted to go back out again, but it was pretty cold so I chose to stay in. I finally got my car taken care of. I went to Van Drunen on Thursday and got my oil changed (again) and had them take a look at why my steering wheel would shake when I would drive over 50mph. Surprise, surprise Van Drunen said NOTHING about my engine needing to be flushed. What a fucking surprise, that Jiffy Lube was indeed trying to fuck me over. They told me that the reason my wheel was shaking was because I needed 3 new tires! I swear to God, this car sucks when it comes to tires. I have replaced all four tires on that car twice and I haven't even had the car for 2 years yet. All together that cost somewhere around $520. But, now my car runs like new!

I went to see "The Hills Have Eyes" on Thursday night. I went in as a fan of the original expecting it to suck, because the trailer really sucked. I actually enjoyed the film. It was very dedicated to the original but not too dedicated. It changed a few things, and those things actually helped the film. I give it a thumbs up.

Today I took all those downloaded Power Ranger episodes and finally figured out a way to put them on DVDs. So soon I will have bootleg season sets of Power Rangers. They are extremely low quality and pixelized but I think it's all right. You can still see the episode and what is going on. Good enough.

I start school up again on Monday and that sucks ass. What really sucks ass is that I didn't do any of my homework that is due next week during my spring break. The week just went by so fucking quick.

The Crap I'm Listening To That You Wouldn't Like Is: "I Got You Babe" by Sonny & Cher
I've been trying to diet so hard this week. I can't seem to do it. I really need more time to go out and exercise, ride my bike, walk whatever. I simply don't have time for that. It will be getting warmer soon, so I can start riding my bike to and from the train instead of driving there. It will save me money too. I'll be killing two birds with one stone.

I bought this program and connector for my computer that allows me to capture stuff from my VCR into my computer so I can make a DVD of it. So I've been recording episodes of Boston Public off of TV One. Fortunantely when I bought the program they were starting up with season one, so soon I'll have season sets of Boston Public. And I can put like 8-15 episodes on a DVD so it's really great.

I want my brownish hair back, I'm so sick of dying my hair, but if I just let it grow out it's gonna look stupid, which it all ready does. But, I'm not shaving my head, that's for damn sure!

Mar. 9th, 2006 @ 02:05 am People That Drive Me Nuts
The Way You Make Feel Is: blahwhatever
Why are there always people in my classes that drive me nuts?

There is this dumbass motherfucker in my Wednesday class. His name is literally Elton John, I can't remember what his last name is, but who fucking cares? They call him EJ which is sad because that's what my dumbass cousin's nickname is too. So anyway, he drives me nuts because he says dumb stuff in class or will repeat what the teacher says but make it sound like he came up with something completely different by re-wording it. Anyway, today he was really getting on my nerves. He interrupts people or will talk while the teacher is talking too. Today we did these presentations we had to do and he would talk in the middle of the presentation. And I find it so funny when the teacher and everyone else just starts to ignore people like this. Well, the only person who was paying any attention to him was someone just like him. And it's funny too, because these guys are stoners. No doubt in my mind of that. So finally the teacher says something, telling him to keep it down and to not talk during someone else's presentation. So EJ gets all pissed off and says to this other guy "I'm done talking, fuck this". So, in my mind all I could think was "Thank God!". So, he leaves the classroom and tries to slam the door. Then he comes back and keeps repeating to himself "I don't fucking care". He must have said that at least 7 times. So, this girl is showing these pictures of her gay friends. Fine whatever. EJ decides that he is going to start badmouthing this girl's presentation. He starts saying things like it's disgusting that she is taking pictures of gay men holding hands and a picture of them kissing. So the teacher actually stops this girl's presentation to tell him to stop and to leave. Now, this teacher is really cool (one of my favorites of the semester) so he doesn't tell him to leave, he said he has the option of leaving and giving his presentation next week. Well, that set this asshole off. He starts saying that he paid his tuition and he's not leaving and he is 33 years old and everyone should respect him. Okay, I think what needs to be said here is that people might respect him when he starts acting like a 33 year old man, and not a 10 year old immature brat. And even the other people in my class starting getting pissed at him and speaking their mind. I am so glad this happened, because maybe he will shut the fuck up from now on, or maybe he'll drop the class which would make me happier than ever. The teacher even asked him to stay afterward and talked to him in the hallway. That is so damn sad. Not only is this college, not elementary school, but he even boasted that he was 33 years old and he's staying after class to get talked to by the teacher. That is so fucking pathetic.

Another guy in my Tuesday night class annoys me too. He is just a nerd. He is such a fucking dork and it gets me so upset. Because all he'll talk about is how lighting and framing and stuff is used in a TV show. And apparently he's the Trivia Master of the world too. That just gets on my nerves when people act like they know everything.

Anyway, that was what has happened to me in the last two days.

Mar. 6th, 2006 @ 02:22 am Fangoria's Weekend of Horrors
The Way You Make Feel Is: sleepysleepy
Well I got back from my horror movie convention today, and I must say I had a great time. We got there Friday night, and as we were leaving to go get food we ran into Lloyd Kaufman, founder of Troma who made Toxic Avenger. It was pretty cool, we said hello and were on our way. Saturday morning we were supposed to get up at 8:20AM, but I set the alarm wrong or something and I ended up getting up at 8:50AM instead. We got downstairs around 9:10AM or something and we began our day getting lots of free stuff including an Anchor Bay bag and a Hills Have Eyes shirt. First thing was first I bought a couple of posters and I got to meet Tom Savini again (first met him at Wizard World way back in 2002). He signed my Dawn of the Dead DVD, my Night of the Living Dead (the 1990 one he directed) and my Friday the 13th poster. Then I got a picture with him. Next up was Lloyd Kaufman's presentation, then I stood in line for like 45 minutes to meet him again, he signed my copies of Toxic Avenger, Tromeo & Juliet and Class of Nuke Em High. Then I got a group picture with him, my brother and some people who work for Troma. I bought a bunch of bootlegs there including all the episodes of the 1966 Batman series, the whole Friday the 13th TV series, the short lived Nightmare Cafe TV series, the short lived animated Family Dog series, the short lived New Adventures of He-Man series, and the movie Monster Squad. Interestingly enough, there is a movie called KatieBird: Certifible Crazy Person. I heard about this before the convention and was bummed out to see that Blockbuster will not carry it. I had heard of a petition being signed online to get Blockbuster to carry it. I get there and I went to the table to grab a free poster and the guy there was telling people they should sign the petition, which of course I did (fucking Blockbuster). I told the guy I was pissed about them not carrying it and that I worked at a Blockbuster. He then grabbed a bag from behind their display and gave me a free bootleg copy of the movie. I was completely shocked. The day was filled with stuff to do. I met Kane Hodder, who played Jason Voorhees in 4 Friday the 13th movies, he signed my Jason X poster then charged me $10 for it! The man was a complete dick too! Kane Hodder sucks ass! I asked him for a picture, he got up took a picture with two other people then went and sat back down. Asshole! I went to the George Romero presentation, which was about 30 minutes or so, Erin called me in the middle of that! Then I stood in line for well over an hour to get him to sign my Dawn of the Dead DVD that Tom Savini had signed earlier that day. After that, the day was pretty much over, I so damn tired. I went to that presentation at 3:15PM and didn't get back to my room until a little after 5PM. We ate, watched King Kong on the on demand at the hotel, then went swimming in their indoor pool. Today, we spent just a little time at the convention then headed home. We did pretty much everything on Saturday.

Sadly though it is getting late, and I need to post my pictures on PhotoBucket in order to get them on here because Web Shots won't allow me to post them on LJ, so I will try to get to work on those tomorrow judging on how my stupid fucking internet works. I'll also take some pictures of my autographed DVDs too.

I am sitting in class right now because our teacher decided to give us all 30 minutes to work on our midterm project which I finished last night. So now I get to sit here and wait for class to start. YEA!

We leave at around 6PM or 6:30PM tonight for the convention!
