Jess and I started looking at houses again today. We went to three: the first one was a trailer, the second one wasn't too bad and we'll take a second look but I couldn't tell if it was lived in or decrepit, and the third house was pretty awesome. It was on a singular street that looked as if someone had started a new housing development but then forgot what they were doing mid-construction and decided to finish up with a cul de sac letting the vulturous salesmen sport their ground. On the right corner arc of the circle there's a house pushed back from the other mashed in boxes which sits comfortably by itself. All around the house is woods except for the nearest neighbor adjacent to the front corner. Nice yet secluded; unfortunately relatively new which doesn't fit with Sandy's "lived in" desire but it's near our price range, seems nice, won't get us cop raided for noise, and is a ten minute bike from UCF.

We're still looking at other houses but so far this is my pick until something better comes along. I'll take pictures when we get a walk-through of any house.

Twenty four days!

So I found this band called Death to Anders and based on only two of their songs I decided to buy their album. They are an unsigned, DIY band but I still wasn't expecting what happened. About an hour after I purchased there album from their website I received this email:

The interactionCollapse )

Death to Anders = coolest band I've ever bought an album from.

The simplest interactions evoke the best feelings.

I'm bored. Work is boring. School is boring. The things I do in my free time are not. The people I see in my free time are not. The problem is that work and school take up at least 90% of my time with their tedium. When I'm at work all I think is, "a monkey could easily do this job 38% as effectively as I do". This is a guess as I've never seen a monkey work a day in my life. I'm assuming this is because monkeys are incredibly lazy. When I do school work I get bored, stare into space, and then play piano before I repeat the process ad nauseum. My major is a joke and all my classes are the same. An adaptation of two scenarios; either the same web design tutorials I've been learning since high school or a series of group management exercises veiled by web design tutorials. This is college? My major is a joke.

I'm really excited about moving out for a number of reasons. Mostly, I feel like I'll be around creative people who will actually create things with me; musically or artistically. I'm really optimistic about my roommates. Sandy I've known; he's completely cool by me and we'll music the town upside down. Jess is pretty much into everything I'm into so we get along great and have become really good friends. I feel like she will be my hang out buddy to the max. I know pretty much nothing about Alexia aside from a nerd tendency, which is good, and she seems really friendly. Even if she turns out to be the Southside Scat Strangler I figure the odds are in my favor.

Until Jess gets back I think I'll just practice and be bored.

There Will Be Blood looks to be the greatest movie of my time. I wish I could nail the preview to my wall and have it loop forever.

Holy shit I just realized Jonny Greenwood composed the music.

Watch the hi-def if you can.

My Radiohead box set for the new album is being shipped!

It's been a long, long time since I've bought something.

I have to work at least thirty hours a week to pay rent, electricity, and phone bills. I also attend school as regularly as possible. This usually gives me no free time at all. I am barely adept at balancing these two things at once so when something else comes up I either become unemployed or I failed in my quite fashion. I hope my current problems don't cause either of these but the immediate future looks bleak.

I do feel good though, because it always seems like I'm fine in the long run. I hear stories from other people and I read blogs and so forth and I realize how content I am with my life. I've got this shit down; this existence. I'm happy with my lot and regardless of the swaying motion of the ride I haven't lost my bearings yet.

But there is a serious lack of viable concert options(in the Orlando area). I feel the urge and it seems like unless I want to fake interest in a ska derivation I have no choices(generalization). This sucks. I kinda want to see Melt-Banana but I doubt Aubrey would go with me. Oh well... anyone want to jam? No? Too bad.

Beautiful song by the way.

I realize I only use livejournal when I'm personally productive which is counter productive. I wanted to start writing in livejournal but I feel pretentious when I do that so I started a real journal and I'm content. I won't go into details because it's my "Super Secret Writing Journal" and I don't want Aubrey to figure out where it's hidden.

I'm back on the bandwagon.
I started playing multiple instruments again.
I stopped working so much.
I started completing all assignments on time again.
I started reading heavily again. Thanks Mr. Potter for the kick-start.
I have, unfortunately, put my phone on silence and missed a tonne of calls. (notice tonne!)
I stopped working out but started eating healthier. As healthy as one can eat without refrigeration.
I ordered the Radiohead box set much to Aubrey's chagrin.
I am plotting to overthrow Jon Friskics and use the fansay, new recording studio in the DM building for personal recordings.
I am planning to fail my plot.
I'm going to buy more Magic: the Gathering cards.
I'm doing laundry.
