Food For Thought

Today, my Brother and I are making dinner..again :D.. We're having potatoes and sweet potatoes, with pork loin. I'm sure it'll come out swell since he and I are making it.

The weather is dreadful. I don't believe it's stopped raining for the past few days at least and that's been just a terrible feeling. All I can do is just stay inside, go out when I need to, and do work around the house since I can't do any activities with my brother outside. At least the grass is growing and the trees are getting nourishment as well..and that can't be bad for nature.

I Gotta Run So That I Can Walk

Back from my little vacation with my Mother and sisters... It was filled with a lot of great food (I probably gained 5-10 pounds @.@), and a lot of drama. I was sad to go because I came over to visit my Mother mainly, and mad because the drama that was caused by my sisters made it unbearable to be there. I kept thinking the whole time "if you saw a train coming directly in front of you, and instead of moving out of the way to dodge it...why would you intently stand in the way?"

I got comics, which was one of the high points for the vacation 8/. I got B.P.R.D. 5 and it turned out to be an acceptable ending of the arc it's on. I'm being vague for those who haven't read it yet. ttyl

Luck of The Draw

I've gotten things done today because I've gotten the energy to do them. I usually can't stay idle too long because i'll get fidgety. The weather was nice, not too cold...not too hot, and it wasn't raining, and you can definitely tell that the winter is coming. At night there is a certain chill that somehow gets right to the bone....where by moving you've somehow broke out of your barrier and are relented to the harsh bite of the cold...I noticed it this morning as I sat frozen.. thinking of things to do and while I moved the air around me assaulted me from all sides. hmm..ttyl

A Man Without Fear?

I'm starting to believe that this is a fruitless goal to reach because there is no person in the world who doesn't fear one thing or another. I want to become someone who.. has very little to fear because of the efforts I've taken. This semester I set out to give 100%, and yet I failed because I let things around me effect me strongly. However, I also succeeded because no matter how hard the obstacles were around me...I didn't bend, I didn't break, I pressed on, and I finished my class and that's a good start. One thing is for sure.. I'm a fighter..and I want to keep moving forward.

Winning Isn't Everything....

I've watched the Lombardi Documentary.. and it has made me take a step back and look at my life... There's been a lot i've been working on i.e. life, personal beliefs, work ethic, and understanding the people around me. After watching the powerful documentary I believe that I need to take these practices and take them to the next level if I can, and if I fail that it's ok because I will have attempted to better myself, as a person, even further. I want to believe more in myself, the efforts I'm taking, and impose more will in the endeavors that I can control. This is only something that time will tell.

Counting Down The Days....No More

it is official. I just had my last class of the semester. There were ups and downs, smiles and frowns..The teacher offered drinks and pizza, which I thought was an awesome treat. I didn't say good byes..since that's not my thing...I just left the way I came...quiet..energetic, and calm. The teacher has only two things left to grade so that I can get my final grade of the semester, and that will be that.

Some Treasures of Mine part 3

Well..due to final week this week and last week I haven't really been on, which is unfortunate so again...I'm sorry. Finishing this post dec. 9.
1)The Crow- this has the whole package....beautiful art, beautiful writing, and I applaud O'Barr for even putting this out to the public. I can't even imagine how painful it was to produce the work. This made me believe that black and white work, in general, can be more powerful than colored work.

2)Watchmen- My favorite writer Alan Moore creating such an intricate comic with gibbons. Easily my favorite story from rorschach's journal and origin, dr. manhattan's origin, the surrounding characters, the cause and effect of each characters' actions, the black freighter, it's just a beautiful work overall.

3)Even though I got the hardcover for punisher circle of blood, I found this story very compelling, the art was great and I could see why it sold out when it first came out on that wonderful friday....because it was the initial story that made me a punisher fan. Another reason that I became a punisher fan was Tim Bradstreet and his great covers. However, I'm not a big fan of steve dillon and I've only liked the work by zeck,fernandez, and that's as far as I go as being a fan unfortunately.

4)Spider-man kraven's last hunt: this officially made me a mike zeck fan. it's one of those times where you realize that artist come and go usually and sometimes consistency lacks throughout a run..I believe this is either because their head gets too big, arrogance, and lack of effort or overload because they're on so many freaking projects. When I saw mike zeck's work on KLH....o-m-goodness...his work is consistent...he excels with every work he does that it's almost supernatural. The story overall is one of the greatest spider-man stories ever written.

5)Alter ego 92. I love/hate this with a passion. I love it because it talks about one of my favorite genres ever...with from the creators, and I hate it because it's part 3 of the story...and I haven't been able to find part 1 and 2 @.@ I also love the cover.

Cold, Frigid, Sunday

The weekend spent, for lack of a better term, babysitting a cousin actually went by rather smooth. There wasn't a dull moment..there were laughs, there was joy, entertainment, and no feeling of restlessness.... I rummaged through some of my belongings, optimized more space, gave some stuff away that no longer interest me but nothing I thought my cousin wouldn't enjoy reading none the least.

We also made ginger bread cookies from scratch, which was an interesting thing to do because it brought us all together for about an hour.

I also found a lot of comic articles of events/comics that I really looked forward to getting and that was a great find.

I hadn't had a chance to steal myself away from my cousin so this is why my post is late, however I'll try to be more active. Of course, doing is more reliable than words alone so i'll work on that as well. i bid farewell for now.

Battle of the Semester

There's only two weeks left of the semester....geez... I've completed most of my work, and with the help of a couple of friends i'll be pretty much done with the course. I made the foolish mistake of doing a couple key assignments and somehow...forgot to save them.. I spent the better part of a couple hours looking for them because "why do all the work again if I can find them?" low and behold.. that wasn't the case. Another bit of news... there's no more quizzes to take, thank heavens because I was mustering up some courage/stamina/strength to start prepping for the last two quizzes only to find out I've already done the last one... well....bullocks... why wasn't I informed of this when I inquired about the bloody quizzes. anywho...more to come.

Stressful...but productive

1) Payed my fees for my class next semester. I only found one class that I felt comfortable taking, didn't mind taking, was cost effective, and was going to be healthy.

2)Payed the insurance with Justin. It's been four months since it's lowered in total amount and it hasn't changed yet..lame..

3) Getting official transcripts mailed in about a week giving Justin and I ample time to go to CSUSB and turn it in directly.

4) 2-3 weeks left of school....I remember when the semester first started. The state I'm in right now I'm still stressing, still dealing with crap in my life, however i'm trying to roll with it and not let it affect me too drastically. Still doing things I enjoy to keep my spirits up. Thinking of posting some more pictures of things I cherish. I'll see how I feel.

5)Probably/maybe not getting new brakes this weekend. We'll go and see if we need them first because there's no point in getting new brakes if they're not needed. Talk about a waste of money that could turn out to be. Car ran pretty smooth. I'd hope so.. since Justin and I already payed over 600 in repairs..
