8:38 am - And Now For Something Completely Different
Since I was finally released from the destroyer of all-things-enjoyable known as summer school, I've realized that I've been in some odd sort of trance.

I can't explain what exactly's going on, as anyone that has spent even the shortest of length of time in my presence knows that I can rarely put whatever is goin' on in my head in to words, and even then, after I'm blue the face from rambling, whoever has listened to me is no more informed than before the conversation even began.

So, that being said, I don't plan on delving into whatever reasons the changes in my head are occuring, because, to be perfectly honest, I have no fucking clue whatsoever.

I can say, however, with a certain amount of confidence in my choice of descriptive words, that my mind has been all a flutter with other-worldly thoughts. Very few of my thoughts have been focused on things that people would define as real, and by that, I mean, things that occur in real life. My thoughts have been totally absorbed in a fantasy world. And I'm not just talking swords and magic here, even though that's predominantly the case, I'm talkin' everything from Solstheim(let's see how many of you actually get that reference) to abstract, almost ethereal wonderings.

Thing is though, I'm actually ecstatic about it. The last few days have been filled with gaming, writing, sketching and thinking, and it kicks ass, to say the least. The ideas have been flowing crazily, and I'm having fun writing again, after it seems like forever since I've enjoyed it. If I could find where I put my writing pad while I was up at Clear Lake for the weekend, I'd like to post the first tiny bit of my latest story for evaluation by you guys, especially those of you who I usually go to for this stuff.

Gah... I dunno why I'm typing this stuff, but I guess that's kinda what these things are for. I guess feel I owe it to anyone that reads my crazy randomness a little bit of structured, written thought. So enjoy it, because as I'm lookin' back on what I've written, I dunno if Imma do it again for a while.

It's back to quiz results and moronic quotes for me!

"Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we."

~ George W. Bush, 5 August 2004

Holy shit. THIS is the dude that's running the country. The man's a moron.

But at least he's being honest now.

"Ninjas can kill anyone they want! Ninjas cut off heads ALL the time and don't even think twice about it. These guys are so crazy and awesome that they flip out ALL the time. I heard that there was this ninja who was eating at a diner. And when some dude dropped a spoon the ninja killed the whole town. My friend Mark said that he saw a ninja totally uppercut some kid just because the kid opened a window."

Well, I've made it back, more or less in one piece.

And besides a shoulder injury that I got after I tackled the side of a hill from a dirtbike (I SO did it on purpose) I'm no worse for the wear.

Last night's dinner was awesome, considering it's the first real food I've had since Thursday, as our camping diet consisted of bologna and a variety of chips and dirt.

I've gotta go back there with more people/money next time. And a freakin' cot or sumthin'. Sleeping on rocks pisses me off to no end.

That was the weekend... on to today....

I typed sumthin' here, but the browser got all weird on me, and I really don't feel like typing everything all over again. So, the much more condensed version of the whole spiel that was here originally is, go here. Listen the song that I'm listening to right now

Gah. Somebody please make sure I stay committed to lifting weights this time, because I'm really sick of feeling like a big-ass bruise every time I try to start over again.

This health class is really starting to get to me. I've got this sudden urge to monitor what I eat and exercise. I actually think that I'm gonna follow through as well, I think doin' that stuff will really help me generally feel better.

So, here's to me actually keeping with the resolutions that I make for once!

8:59 am - My First Post In A While, And All I Can Do Is Bitch
Holy shit. Yenno how shitty it is to have to trudge to school, sit through class and do whatever you can to prevent yourself from snapping and having some sort of breakdown as your teacher stands there, talking in a seemingly ENDLESS loop? Yenno how shitty it is to go outside during lunch, and know that even though it looks fucking awesome outside, you can't go anywhere because you'll have to be back in class in a half hour?

That shit is ten times worse during the summer.

As much as the following statement may shock those who read it, bear in mind that it is entirely true: this is my first excursion to summer school.

And DAMN, does it suck.

I've sat through 3 hour classes before at night school, and I had no problem with that, but here, it's nearly fucking impossible. I'm going stir crazy in my health and biology classes. HEALTH and BIOLOGY. I shouldn't even HAVE to take this shit. In the health classes I've taken in the past, I can honestly say that I haven't learned shit. TV and media in general is a far better source of health information than this class. Health may be the most USELESS CLASS EVER.

And biology just sucks ass. BIG TIME. I'm not gonna be a scientist. Don't make me do this shit.

How fucked up is a school where you're FORCED to take useless-ass health, but they cancel the creative writing class, one of the few classes I've actually been looking forward to? Shit, I woulda actually wanted to go to school all day if it meant that I could have that class.

School is fucking evil.

Oh, on a happier note, Spider-Man 2 totally kicks ass. Go watch it.

Well, it's official. Both chemistry and algeabra II/Trig have been failed by yours truly. Shit. That's all the more that I have to make up next year.

If anything, this shit is kinda serving as a wake-up call. I mean, I'm a senior next year, and if I keep fuckin' around like this, I'm not gonna graduate on time.

Headin' out to play ball tomorrow again. Mebbe I'll have more to talk about then.

2:47 pm - More Tales of Ownage
Haha. They will songs of our deeds, they will!

In a turn of events that would fit in rather nicely in a John Hughes movie, Jackie and I managed to allude the best security efforts of the teachers at school, and screamed outta the parking lot in The Volvo (fer life, bitch).

....I'm tryin' to type exactly what happens, but, that shit would take far too long here. It's something best left said vocally, so, you know what to do if you want details.

Whew. It's the weekend finally. Just a week and a half util I can enjoy a small portion of my summer before they force me into school again. Blech.

Whoo-hoo! No more adult school!

And I passed with an A-, thank you very much.

As much of a thrill as it is to get my Monday and Wed. evenings back, this event is eclipsed by the conclusion of Dracula.

To anyone and everyone who a slight interest in novels and/or reading AT ALL, should most definitely give this a read. I was enthralled throught the whole book, but the last 15 pages had me squirming in my damn seat. I was totally oblivious to everything that was happening in the class around me, I was so damn absorbed in the book.

Read it.
Love it.

....or I'll kick yer ass.

3:55 pm - Canadians And Computers Don't Mix
I fucking swear, the man's a menace.

We need to ban his ass from the computer, for chris'sake. We let him have free reign of the computer for a weekend, and he leaves totally fucked. A mess of spy-ware, deleted files, useless-ass programs, and changed settings. How can you get into so much trouble looking at anal/asian porn, downloading airplane games and "fixing" performance issues?

I should really look into buying one of those external hard-drive thingies, so at least all of MY SHIT won't get righteously fucked.

...... fucking Canadians.

Game night again on Saturday over at Josh's. Lemme say that Happy Meal and Blitz SHALL NEVER BE ON MY TEAM AGAIN IF I AM ABLE TO PREVENT IT. Baggage, dude. Jared and I CARRIED the team on Halo. I mean, when two dudes get between 17-25 kills each and the other two members get 3... we need to spread the losers out a bit. Despite repeated ass kickings, it was a damn fun evening, I have to admit. At least I had fun while I lost.

But that was only in Halo.

In the GGXX side of things...

PLEASE, IF THERE IS SOMEONE THAT CAN TAKE ME ON IN THE PS2 VERSION, LEMME KNOW. Those dudes didn't have a chance. I showered no mercy, at all. 10 fights, 10 victories. That's how it was. And the dude that I played was the only one around here that I was actually nervous about playing. I thought I was gonna get my ass HANDED to me.

Guess I was wrong.

Stay tuned for the next.....TALES OF OWNAGE!!!!!

1:04 pm - Finally!
After 13 years of waiting, I've finally officially become a member of the Alvaro family. I just got back from the courthouse where I was legally adopted by my step-dad. So, I guess that just makes him "dad" now.

I mean, there's no real change going on here. I've been calling him dad since I can remember, and we've always been a family. It's just that it feels kinda good to have all this made official.

And it feels even better to drop that long ass last name.

I.... I got my hair chooped off on Sunday.

Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not some vain dude that throws a fucking fit when a curl doesn't curl the right way, or whatever a self-absorbed person like that does. But I mean, my HAIR dude. It's not bright fucking blonde anymore(it's about fucking time I got rid of that shit) but it's not big anymore either... I feel like fucking Beetlegeuse with a tiny fucking head on this monsterous body 'o mine.

I'm not adapting to my new hair rather well either. It's been for-fucking-ever since I've even remotely thought about doing anything the monstrosity that was my hair. All this gel shit, or whatever the fuck it is, is scaring the crap outta me.

Fuck it. It'll grow back.

In other news, I just started this online Drivers Training thing. I think it's a little late fer that though...I mean, I'm a couple months away from being able to take the tests and shit without having to do that training stuff anyways. Whatever, better late than never, I guess.

Ahh...I was just kicking back here in front of the comp, listening to Akash's theme song, thinking about what I DIDN'T HAVE TO DO TODAY!!!! HAHA, SPRING BREAK!

I would give pity to all of you that don't have a little vacation time right now, but, I'd much rather gloat instead.

On the agenda for today:


I think that's enough for one day. Don't wanna be over-ambitious, yenno?

I've got DVD's, Morrowind, NES, Genesis and a Neo-Geo, and enough left-overs from a weekend of gatherings to last me the whole week.

Vacation rocks so fucking hard.

I've been watching this trailer pretty much every day for the last week or so. Someone needs to subtitle the fuck outta this movie and get it stateside so I can watch it.

I'm oh so dizzy from watching a home movie shot horribly... yenno, when the camera moves around too damn fast? Guh... I wanna hurl.

Oh, and the MegaTokyo Flapdoozy bag that I got on friday kicks ass. I recommend that you all get one.
