I am very very tired. Bike Week is killing me. If I can just make it to Spring Break, I should be okay... lol. No I won't. Between OC and Daytona, it's like having two full time jobs. I didn't even get to take my test for A&P on time because I was working open to close for seriously like five days in a row. Luckily the teacher is cool and is letting me take it today at noon. What am I doing wasting my time doing this? I have to study!

Mara, let's go to Steak N Shake sometime soon. I miss you.

Being sick sucks. So does Race Week (rude white trash redneck jerks). Put the two together, and it makes for one unhappy Chris. I have spent the last week working doubles, some in O.C. and some in Daytona, and I just have not been making any money. I have decided that I do not have what it takes to be a successful server. I try to be friendly and outgoing, but shifts that some people make over $100 on, I'll make like $60. I don't understand it. I wish I didn't have to care about money so much. Plus, on top of the madness, I've had no voice for like, four days now. It's very embarrassing, and half of my words don't come out when I'm talking to my guests, which they think is hilarious. But on the other hand, I really impressed everyone at Daytona, got a lot of compliments and was asked by two of the managers to transfer over (which will never happen). So there is a silver lining after all.

Having not updated in a long while, I have to tell you all about the girl I'm currently crushing on (shut up Mara). She works at Mickey Finn's and her name is Crystal. She is uber-gorgeous, and she just dyed her hair so that the bottom layer is red and the top is blond. It is freaking hot as heck. Too bad I'm such a chicken. Last week I had made up my mind to ask for her digits, but there was this table of five very good looking guys right next to us, and she was all flirting with them. She doesn't flirt with me. So I lost my nerve. Whatever. I'll just ignore it until it goes away.

Speaking of Mara, we went to see Strike Anywhere. It was so freaking awesome, my new #1 favorite show (they even beat out the Distillers, and that's saying a lot!). God, they were so great. I can't wait to see Mara's pictures.

I'm looking at this girl with a sXe shirt on that says "It's okay not to drink". I am starting to dislike straightedge. It is very holier-than-thou, if you know what I mean. I mean, I hardly ever drink at all, but I don't tell the world like it makes me morally superior to everyone else. She also has on white camo cutoffs, a big ball necklace, and a riveted belt. She's so punk. Get off your high horse, bitch.

Well, thanks everyone who text message'd me to wish me a happy valentine's day. I was very busy working and could not reply, but I hope that you all did too and want you to know that you are all in my thoughts, even though I am a bad friend and can't be bothered to pick up the phone. In the mean time, after my A&P lab practical in two weeks, I will be around more. TTYL.

Wow, it's been a long time since last I've updated. So much has happened. First of all, hope everyone had a good holiday. I got tons of nice gifts from everyone, and loads of candy. Everyone got me candy. It was great.

Next, UCF is out, DBCC is back in. I started the new semester this week, and so far it sucked. Trig is awful. And don't even get me started on Physics. We started out with an Indian lady with a very heavy accent. Then she had a stroke, so she was replaced with a Chinese man with an even heavier accent. I had absolutely no idea what was going on. Plus, I didn't have the trig knowledge that we apparently need (even though it says we only need Intermediate algebra in the course book), so I said, Goodbye. Dropped those two. Now I've just got Anatomy and Microcomputers, which I can work on at my own pace. Sweet. I guess the physics thing worked out for the best because there was a lady that couldn't find a book anywhere, so now I can give her mine. Everybody wins!

Long story short, forget UCF, I guess. I'll try out for the Radiography program at DBCC instead. It's only an AS degree, but it is more within the limits of my capabilities.

Got a call from Kelli today (not Kelly), she wants to get together. This makes me VERY happy, because she has a great personality and is hot as hell. Blonde bombshell, into bikes, great dresser, sweetheart. We hardly ever get to talk because we both lead such busy lives. We are gonna go to lunch next week. Sweet!

Work was stupid tonight. Worked all night to make $50, on a Friday. I'm gonna have to start picking up shifts at Sanford while I'm not in school, cause I am broke as a joke, and it sucks. Went to UCF today (and didn't get lost!!!). Got my application for the radiology program. I hope I get accepted but doubt I will. First, it's highly competetive. Second, I don't have the prereqs finished yet, so they might not consider me. I will be finished with them Summer 2005.

Got my grades today:
Animal Learning:.......A
Abnormal Psychology:...B
OMG, a C+! I've never gotten one before. I suck. Now my GPA is down to 3.61. Why is it so easy to lower your GPA but so hard to raise it up? Aaaarrgghhh.

My brother asked me to move in to his house. I'm thinking about it. I'd kind of like to, it might be fun. Not sure what I'll do yet, but I'll keep you posted.

Went to Steak N Shake last night with Mara. Had the Philadelphia sandwich, which was freaking great (haven't had beef in months). I also had a White Chocolate milkshake. I don't know which I like better, those or the Egg Nog. I love egg nog, but I'm told it's a white person thing.

Had another bad night again. This is getting very repetetive, isn't it? They cut back my bar shifts, so I am pretty pissed about that, but they assure me that it should be fixed next week. It better be. Today was the last day of classes, thank God they're finally over. While I feel a great sense of relief from this, I still dread next semester. Will it ever be over?

I have come to a conclusion about my girlfriend issues, thanks to the help of a few friends, and here is what I have come up with: I think that the problem is that I keep trying to find a relationship in friendships that have long existed because I think that it will be more comfortable. Then when something starts to develop, I back off because I'm afraid of ruining the friendship if it doesn't work out. Now how's that for self-analysis? Susan, tell me again how clueless guys are.

I came to the crushing realization that I will be stuck at RT, for a while longer anyway. With a crizazy schedule like I've got next semester (see below), nobody will hire me for Monday morning, Friday night, and Saturday and Sunday. So I'm stuck until at least Fall 2005, which is when I will hopefully be at UCF, if I get accepted. But I have decided that rather than be miserable, I'll just adopt an entirely lackadaisical attitude toward it. I no longer do any sidework during the shift, no extra cleaning projects, and just the bare minimum of work to get out at the end of the day. Hopefully this will make it a little better. My GM is not very happy with me, but that's okay because I'm not too happy with her right now either.

One more final to go on Tuesday: Animal Learning. I am pretty sure I've got it down; even if I only get a B on it, I should still get an A in the class. All my other classes I am expecting B's in, which sucks, but it was the best I could do.

I really want another tattoo now. If they didn't itch so much when healing (that was worse than actually getting it done) I would already have another. But I don't have the money to waste on it. I'm almost done Christmas shopping, and boy is this year breaking the bank. So I have zero dollars to blow, which sucks because I'm used to having cash to throw around. Oh well.

I think that will be all for now. TTYL.

Dec. 7th, 2004 @ 02:56 am Boycott Party Exchange
Current Mood: awake
Current Music: Strike ANywhere: Infrared
Its 3 o'clock in the morning. I can't sleep.

Okay, everybody needs to help me out here. I'm calling for a boycott for Party Exchange in Orange City, by Big Lots and Crafts N Stuff. Spread the word. I have been a clown for about three years now, and every time I go there for animal balloons, they are out. They always say they are expecting them in soon, but they never have them. Recently, I told them three weeks in advance that I had a party coming up, would they have balloons by such and such a date. They assured me they would, and to try back next week. I tried back for three weeks, and they never got them in; they just kept telling me to try back in a few days. I finally had to get them from WalMart, the kind that pop if you look at them funny, and all the kids thought that I was bad at making balloon animals because they kept popping. So thanks a lot Party Exchange, for ruining the party. You would think that since these balloons are obviously such a hot commodity, they would order extra and keep them in stock, since they NEVER have them. So don't go to Party Exchange.

Signed up for classes next semester. Here is a rundown of my schedule (How crazy is this?):

8:00 - 8:50 Trigonometry (DBCC)
9:30 - 5:00 Ruby Tuesday
6:30 - 9:15 Physics (SCC)

8:00 - 9:20 Microcomputer Applications
9:30 - 10:50 Anatomy and Physiology

Got back from North Carolina today, for my friend Sohmer's wedding. She was a beautiful bride, and was thrilled to death that I came. That was the only good thing about the trip. I took Kelly up with me, and I must have done something to make her angry because she didn't talk the entire way home, and wouldn't let me help her with her bags, or anything. WTF? It was a long six hours back to her apartment. Then I IM'ed her, but she didn't respond. I don't know what the problem is.

Tonight was the Rubys holiday party, hosted at Jenna's horse pasture. I went, but now I wish I hadn't bothered. The person I got for Secret Santa really enjoyed his gift; it was a belt buckle that was in the shape of a star and said ROCK STAR. At least, I hope he liked it. My Secret Santa got me a really nice picture of a giraffe that he took and framed himself. It was really awesome. But then Erica, who I thought has been flirting with me for a long time, came holding hands with some guy that she apparently made out with. At this point I just got disgusted and left.

I don't know which is more sad, the fact that I actually think that these girls are interested in me, or that I get disappointed when I find out they're not.

1. The speed limit is 45, but nobody goes over 30.
2. Everybody stops without warning for no reason at all.
3. People turning out of parking lots can't just wait for you to pass, they have to go at the last possible second, and then go slower than the traffic flow.
4. Frequent stop and go traffic due to all the businesses along the sides.
5. Longer traffic lights than anywhere else on the entire planet.
6. People seem to feel the need to come to a complete stop before making the turn.
7. It is home to Seminole Community College, which I've found out is even more evil and disorganized than DBCC (which I thought was impossible).

I almost quit my job last night. I found out that they're promoting one of the cooks to management. It makes me so angry. He hasn't even been there for a year yet, and they're promoting him. I've been there for four years, and nothing. It makes me sick to think about it. I've had enough of this stupid fucking place. You know, I go there every day just to be miserable, because I don't want to quit on my GM, but this shows just how much she values me. Why do I even bother going in and trying my hardest, being a team player? It doesn't benefit me in any way. It's certainly not for the money; I made $30 last night. I guess it's time to start filling out applications because I am over Ruby Tuesday.
