I am still alive!

Just wanted to check in with yall!

The last year of my life has been pretty hectic, my creative juices have not been flowing as well as they have in the past due to the typical stuff life throws at you.

However, that said – I am still alive, I am still standing and fighting the good fight. There is not one single thing (or things) that will keep me down for long.

Every single day is a new day, a new fresh start to rise up and grab the bull by the horns and wrestle it to the ground.

In the next few days I may have some relatively long posts to vent the frustrations I have inside, it can’t hurt.

My Life in Music

Ever since I was a kid, I have always felt a very strong connection to music. I don’t really know why, maybe because I can appreciate a well written story and music is nothing more then a story sung to a catchy beat.

I am not alone in this line of thinking, millions of people across the world feel a strong connection to music. No matter where I am at any given point and time in my life, there are numerous songs that speak exactly what I am feeling inside. It makes me wonder how half of the world’s song writers aren’t even more medicated then they already are….

I heard this song Can You Tell by Ra Ra Riot last weekend and downloaded it from iTunes on the spot via iPhone.

Lyrics to Can You Tell :

Oh baby baby baby babe,
How long am I supposed to wait?
I think about you nightly
Oh, can you tell I’m losin’ sleep?

Oh what am I supposed to do?
It’s hard to stay cool.
Oh, when you smile at me
and I can notice every time you speak.

My bed’s too big for just me
and when you turn your eyes,
I promise I won’t care.

Oh baby baby baby babe
Oh baby baby baby please
My head sinks to my knees.
Oh baby baby don’t you know
I think about you nightly?

My bed’s too big for just me
and when you turn your eyes,
I promise I won’t care.

Oh baby baby baby babe
I think about you nightly
I think about you nightly
Oh baby baby baby baby

Oh baby baby baby babe.
When I look in your eyes
I tend to lose my thoughts
Don’t forget your stare
Or what was that you said?
Would you let me know?
‘Cause I can’t read your mind
But can you tell I can’t even explain

Oh baby baby baby babe
I think about you nightly
I think about you nightly
Oh baby baby baby
I think about you nightly

Oh baby I can’t even explain
How long am I supposed to wait?
I think about you nightly
Oh can you tell I’m losin’ sleep?

Oh baby, what am I supposed to do?
It’s hard to stay cool.
Oh when you smile at me
and I can notice every time you speak.

Oh baby baby baby babe
I think about you nightly
Oh baby baby baby babe

Yea, I would say that pretty much sums up my life these days.

Finally found a new truck! Pick it up next week!

Well like I said in a prior post, I found a truck in Fairfield, CT. Went to go look at it today, they said my truck was worth more then they did over the phone and I can walk out of the dealership with the new truck for a mere 12k.

After disussing things with the Salesman we looked at the truck and I almost had a heart attack! It had grey leather instead of black. Went back inside and they can get me one with black by the time I come back next week. Not too exciting for anyone, but I needed to blog about it because I am excited.

Hey there "Torch"

Ok, so if you don't know already, I am a lowly Air Conditioning Mechanic / Installer. It's a pretty cool job at times…but lately it really sucks. I don't really enjoy doing installations, I like to challenge my mind by troubleshooting broken stuff.

While I take pride in doing installations, it just gets to me after a while. We have been doing piping (kind of like plumbers do) for about 4 weeks now at St. John's University in Queens, NY. Firstly, they have their own in house service guys….so we get evil looks for doing an installation on their…"turf". We got to know a few of the guys and pretty much got accepted as their own…for the time being.

Picture these guys as ex-AC guys who found a cozy job where they walk around doing nothing all day. Cant argue with the logic there….

Anyways, I have been doing this for over 6 years now. July will be the start of my 7th season….(ack, gasp, cough….get me out of here).

This one older gentleman (Nicklas) has named me "Torch". While this can be pretty nifty nickname…it really annoys me. I look young, and I happen to be working with another mechanic from our company, John. John and I pretty much split the work load 50/50. But it seems this clown is always around when I am either handing John copper or other materials or up on a ladder TORCH in hand.

He says some snide remarks like…"Ah what are you good for torch", or "He gives you all the easy stuff" and "You better not get any leaks there kid".

The best he has said so far was….."Are you sure you know what you are doing kid",

I stopped, turned off my torch and looked at him…..I said listen POPS….I have been doing this for 6 years. I am not a helper, not a junior mechanic and certainly not John's bitch. I know EXACTLY what I am doing…..

Well, thats not really what I said…but I felt like it.

What I really said was…."I hope I know what I am doing after 6 and a half years". I tend to just ignore his dumb old ass…..

But it really bothers me….John thinks its funny….but he thinks everything is funny LOL

Some Site Changes

Well I made some site changes the past few days.

If you only check the blog, you noticed right away that I made this feel like the rest of the site. The forums match, the gallery matches.

EVERYTHING MATCHES!

lol

That is all I can muster up for a blog entry right now.

Academic Strategies for the CJ Professional
Introduction to the Criminal Justice System

Online College….the solution for the person that spends entirely too much time online.

Ok back to reading this book! :)

Got a blog started

Well, I had been thinking of adding some new things to the site. A way of letting you all know how things are going in my life, and about the site. I found this nifty php script and decided to try it out.

Tommorow I start college, only took 6 years after HS to get back. I am going for my Associates in Criminal Justice, Wish me luck!

I guess that is all for tonight!
