Whose idea...

was it for me to take a night class on the days that I have to wake up at 5am? My guess it was the same person who thought taking pre-clac after not taking a math class for 5 years would be a good idea. I'm just plum crazy. I'm going to see if I'd be able to take a few hours off so, before or after lunch. That way I could try to get some help on my math. The way it's going....Well....It aint looking to good for the home team.
So short and sweet tonight. Good night y'all.

Mr Handy man

So it would seem that this weekend I have been doing everything in my power to not do my homework. I don't even feel that bad about it. Over the weekend I did one problem, and got it right. Today at work I tried to finish up the second problem....Yeah that didn't work out so well. I got no clue how the book got the answer it did. Needless to say I'm sure it is something simple that I should know.

So I installed a toilet, most of the windows have blinds, Cleaned most of the AC coil (stupid not so handy man made a mess), and I got a little list of other things I got to work on. If all goes well, I should be able to start moving in this week, well the weekend by the latest. Seeing that I don't get home till 9pm tomorrow and Thursday, that sucks.

I'm really starting to think I'm going to have to make a change. One of them life changing changes. I think I really need to take a look at becoming an under water welder. I know I'm good at welding, well I thought I was good at math too. But, welding on land or up on a building just seems so boring to me. It's like, "woohoo so I'm 90ft up in the air and I made a weld" So I think under water welding would be really neato. It will also get me away from here. It would suck leaving the friends that I've made, but I've packed up before...Well twice now. So, I'll be ok.

What ever happens...happens.

Home work

Fuck it! I don't feel like doing it. I don't know why. I guess...I dunno. Maybe I'm just a little bitter. Am I going to give up, I hope not. It's not that I don't have the time. Heck I've been home since 7ish. Had dinner with a good ol' friend. That was good. My mom ate some of my left overs. I found out I should stop drinking foo foo drinks and just stick with beer. We'll see how well that works out. I also know that pink green drinks taste better than pink ones do. Next time I'm going for blue baby!

I sooooo don't even want to look in my damn $150 math book. Just don't want to. And now it's 10pm FUCK! Maybe I'll get a chance to bring it out at work. I think tomorrow is going to be busy too. Oh doughnuts, always good.

Clear as mud

I got a bad feeling about this math class. A bad bad icky feeling. I NEED a B to pass free and clear. Something I have yet to do in a math class. With a C I got to do a bunch of paper work with the dean to let me take classes in the Spring of '07. Saying that "Look I know my GPA isn't where it needs to be (sub 2.0 right now), but I passed this class so I'm going the right way...). If I don't pass, or even just drop out...I'm taking a forced break next semester. Whoopie fucking doo.
So, the hard truth of the matter.
I'm not going to go back to algebra and start ALL over. Even though that would be the best way of doing it. That would just add on, what?, 2 more years just to get to where I'm at when I left off. That's just insane. I know people got out of highschool after me, and have their degree already. For me, going to school full time out of high school. Yeah, I was already on the 6 (at least) year plan.
So what do I got to show for my last 4 years? I got (maybe I'm just tired and bitchy) dummer from the sound of it. I already said fuck english (ala my great0 spellingo). The military said Fuck me. So am I going to say fuck off to Civil Engineering? God, I hope not. That's what I've wanted to do since before high school. I want to build something big. That's all. Build stuff, something I (or my kids....Scary thought) could drive by one day and say, "Yeah, I built that"
Maybe I just got a lot on my mind, like passing this fucking class. I guess if it doesn't work out now....It wasn't ment to be. Or at least not now. So I guess I'll take a harder look into the art of under water welding.
Maybe I just need someone to vent to. What's the point? That's all I'm doing here. I think the 8 hours of training at work, and the almost 2 hours of math just turned my brain to goo. That can't be good. It would be nice if someone, nevermind. I don't want to be bitching to someone about how bad my life is. I didn't bitch, well just to one person, back about 3 years ago. And that was as low as anyone can be. So yeah, I'm just tired.
Just pick up and do my under water welding. It's all about me, right?
Me. Me. Me...
Well, see.

Guess I should type something

I don't really have much to say about today. I ended up driving up to Merced today. Ha! That was a waste of time. I think I installed 3 or 4 blinds, and that's an 75min drive. Well I got paid for it, still a long ass drive. It worked out ok though, I got to stop by the casa for lunch. Well, it was more like 3pm but what ever.
Blah. Damnit. I forgot what I was going to blog about.
Humm guess I should think of something to do with said chicka. HUmm.....Bowling...blah. Oh lets be in highschool again and just go to the movies....ohhh drive-in. (yeah we still got one of those up here.

Can't sleep

Blah this sucks. I was in bed. I had two sleeping cats on one side. Well, I'm stuck with just one right now and he's sounds asleep. The other is....hell if I know. So I thought I'd just drop a line it to my blog history.
oh yeah and eat some left over pizza. Mmm Mmm good.
well I guess I should try going to sleep again. If I stay awake much longer tomorrow is gonna suck.

Did I make the right choice.

I remember really wanting to become an under water welder. Just thought that would be so cool. Even had the school picked out and everything. How many chances do I get with school / life. This math class is kicking my butt. It's only pre calc, I should be able to do this. It's stuff I should've learned in highschool that is messing me up. I've been all over the web and buggin friends for help. It's not that I don't under stand it. Ok so I don't understand how to simplify a polynomial into two binomials.
So I guess if I don't pass this class with flying colors then I get to take next semester off. It's nice how they hold classes that I've done 5 years ago against me. Oh well.
Well lets see. I did go to Jimbo last night. That was way fun. Met a few new people. Got to well...I'm not going to say dance, seeing as I don't. I'll just say....Yeah I dunno.
It does make me wonder what would have happened had I stuck with the under water welding. Where would I be now? I wouldn't have some of the friends that I have now. And I do have some good friends. Something you don't get when you work in a 99% all male shop in the Air Force. I think it was about a 23 to 1 ratio.
Hum I think I just take to long to type my blogs up. That's why they seem like they go all over the place. I forget where I started and just keep on going someplace without ever know the way. So yeah.
I'll guess I'll stop with this.

Saturday, August 19, 2006

Holy cow man!

I'm fuckin' bored out of my mind.
I wanna bug someone, anyone, on yahoo or something. But nope. Might call someone, hum. I found a neat lil site. Looked at some kick ass art work. The stuff just made my jaw drop, I could never do anything like that. But, if you need someone to build you a bridge, I'm your man.
So yeah, I got pizza on the way. mmm pizza.

Artistic and Passionate

My Blogging Type is Artistic and Passionate

You see your blog as the ultimate personal expression - and work hard to make it great.

One moment you may be working on a new dramatic design for your blog...

And the next, you're passionately writing about your pet causes.

Your blog is very important - and you're careful about who you share it with.

So I took this test again. I wanted to see if I changed. This is what it came back with.

Here I am

Brain dead from trying to do my Pre Calc homework. It's all stuff I should know already. I can't go back and take trig or even something lower over again.
The batteries in my mouse are dead, well near dead. The light was red, that's never a good thing. I guess that's why the red button is in fact red and not a pretty pink. So I thought I'd just type something up since it's been a few days since I posted a new blog. So while I wait for my batteries to recharge some, I am just going to type up my random thoughts. But I guess that is what y'all like to read this for anyways. So no harm done.
So far I've spent $300 for this damn class. That is how much my car payment is. That's fucking insane. I guess there's nothing really new going on.
I could blog about people, but that's no fun. Just not my style. (just took a break to read a Friends blog.) So I got this math problem that is kicking my butt. I like math but damn after 5 years it's fuckin hard stuff.
Solve the equation by completing the square:
I got about half of it, there is just one step (that I should know from past math class that is killing me.) I soooo can't wait till I get my own place. I got a friend who has her own apartment, talks about it like it's the best thing since sliced bread. She also doesn't have much extra money right now.
Damn I should have charged my mouse while I was asleep. I wonder how many beer caps I have on my desk. No, they are not all from last night. I think only one is. Lets count...I counted 13, and that's with out looking under papers and the like.
Gotta love google:
Damn I've been around the internet block a time or two. Well seeing that Chucky_5150 is the name that I started using.....well before I got my ICQ (I seek you) account. Damn, that's been a long time ago. Ah good ol times.
Guess I should post this and go on with my day...Trying to do my homework.

I did it!

I called up a cute girl after class last night.
I asked the said girl if she wanted to have dinner Wednesday night.
She said yes.
Simple right? Right.
So 6pm came across, after walking around Target for about 45 min. It was good. I got to bug a friend of mine and do a few laps around the store. I even looked at lava lamps! I gotta get one. Yup!
So anyways, back to the blog. (how the hell do I go from wall of voodoo to Faith Hill?!?! Stupid winamp) Dinner went real good. Not bad after the last time I seen her was....Well awhile ago to say the least. Well, like I said. Dinner was good. We joked we laughed. I made a fool out of me (for those that know me, know I tend to do that a lot) self a few times. It was all good.
So we'll have to do it again. Though not going to wait as long as we did this last time ;)
So yeah, that was my day.
Class tomorrow night....weeeeeeeeeee.....blah

Where to start

Today was my first day of college, again....again. It went better than I thought it would. This is my first classroom class (welding class doesn't really count) since the fall of 2001. Spent WAY to much for a new math book. Did I need a new math book, nope...No way Jose. Did they have any used books....nada. That one friggin book cost my $150!!!@
So I'm going to dinner tomorrow, hope for the best on that. So um yeah. It'll be good.
Oh yeah, I also got some things going on with my job. Some good and some....hum...I don't know yet. I guess I'll find out Friday.

The wheels on the bus

...They go around and around.
So I'm just helping a friend set up his website. That went as planned.
humm maybe bowling next weekend.
Holy cow I start class day after tomorrow. Damn, I gotta buy me a new book, pooie!
Oh yeah, and my brother is back home. WooHoo for that. And my Grandmama too, I'm gonna go down there tomorrow after work.
This is dumb, I don't know how much money I've spent on computer games. Am I playing any of them now? Nope. Just sitting here being bored. They only game I wanna play right now is a free one and I've used up most of my adventures anyways. Blah.
I guess one good thing about the weekend is that I can stay in my PJs all day long. And that is what I plan on doing. So have it has been working out real well for me.
I dunno. I just seem to click the same web sites over and over again. Washing some clothes, that's oh so much fun. Heck I might even fold and put them away this time. Ohnoes! watch out.
yeah, I think I'll just keep adding to this though out the rest of the day. It's not like I have anything else to do.

Thursday, August 10, 2006

Eh, again

I don't know why I do this. I know I'm tired. I know that I know of a ton of other things to do with my time. I just kinda been thinking of the things that I keep out of this blog. A private of a person I am, what the heck am I doing with a public blog. There's already been people that I know I never gave this link out to leave comments. How'd the heck that happen I dunno, but it's all good. If someone want to take the time out of their busy (took me three times to spell that), or not so busy, day to read my thoughts....well more power to them. If they spend more time and read my books that I've posted, there's a few in here, +5 psychedelic points for them. But if you take the time to leave my your thoughts on the matter at hand, well then I will count you as a friend and give you one high-five.
Wow, I was rambling fo sho just now. I don't know why. But I do know that I have to work in less than 6 hours. I guess I should move my cat, I don't have many pictures of him, and all the junk back on to this chair. Well, the cat can stay. Damn I start a lot of sentences with "Well".
well...I need to remember to get off of work at 4pm... Yup, that's what I gotta do.
Damn I dun wanna go to work tomorrow. Blah!

I'm Bored

So I guess I'll make it an early night. I'll read some more Ernest Hemingway, I've been slackin on doing that these past few weeks. I just wanted to post a lil something since I guess it's what I do now.

Eh, Good night y'all

Hot August Nights

Holy cow this weekend was busy and full and, for the most part, good times.
I think this is going to be a book, so you might be sitting for awhile.
Well, we were planning on leaving first thing Saturday morning. We ended up leaving right about 2am. We got some drinks at the gas station and were on our way. Oh yeah, I was stuck driving not that it was that big of a deal. I ended up driving for a few hours, I guess about three I didn't keep much count. About 20 miles outside of Sacramento, is where I found a gas station and let my dad drive the rest of the way.
I fall asleep, then some time later my dad wakes me up asking me why that light came on. Well humm....Odd charnging system lights are not a good thing while driving a 300 miles trip (one way). A few min after that a second red light came on, this time about the water temp. So that means that the serpentine belt was gone. Well that sucks anytime. Yeah, I should've checked that before we started the trip...What the hell was I thinking. This sucks anytime, it sucks a lot when you're in the mountains, +5 sucky points for it being before 6am, +5 lucky points for coming to a stop right in front of a repair shot. So, all in all, it could have been a lot worst.
Yeah I know. Saturday started a few hours ago. Well, we are now stuck between two gas stations, not a bad place to stop. There are even two or three restaurants within walking distance. One even says Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner. Woohoo for breakfast. We start walking that way, only to find out that they open at 11am on Mon - Sat. Bummer, that was a mean joke they played on us. Hell, they didn't even open till 9am on Sunday. It wasn't even 7am when we walked to it. So that was of zero help to us. It wasn't till sometime around 10:30am that we got back on the road again (humm....I think that's a song).
**Fuck, this is taking a long time to type up**
Lets see what else happened Saturday... Got to the swap meet around 11am. I got a new (used) baby moon hub cap for my El Camino. Then I even found an original brochure for my '67 El Camino, I got that too. I talked to a few people, even got a guys card. Told me to look them up when they come to the big swap meet when it comes to cali.
After that we walked around, looked at the cars for sale. My dad was looking for some people that he know. We found all four that he was looking for.
After that we were very hungry and very much tired. Then we found out that it was a 45 mile drive south to our hotel!!!!shift111one. And guess who got to drive...Me! Oh my Gawd I was soo tired. We got to the room, checked in, ate then I took a lil power nap in the room. I think my dad was playing cards or something.
Around 6 or 7 we were trying to find something to do. There's no point in staying in a hotel all night. It came down to Going back into Reno or going to South Lake Tahoe. Well since the last time my dad has been to Tahoe was back in '82 and I've never been there that is where we went. Holy cow, that place is nice and small. It was a neat lil drive. Though it would be better if my lil car was able to do the mountains better, but what'cha gonna do?
Lake Tahoe would make a very nice weekend get away. It's not that far, I would think that the rooms wouldn't be that bad also. We walked, I think we walked 5 miles that day. My feet were hurtin' that's fo sho. Then after all that, I got to drive the 15 miles back. Fun times.
When we got back to the hotel, I went back to the room watched some TV, Checked my e-mail, and went to sleep. My dad came in around 11pm, then we went back out. That was the last I seen him that night.
**whew Done with Saturday**

Sunday will be short and to the point. We went to a nice little Automobile Museum and made a stop at Boomtown. Oh the museum was sooo cool. I even learned a few things about William F. Harrah. The guy started with a small bingo parlor that he got from his dad. Kind of makes you wonder what the odds of one man doing something like that again. Hell, I just want enough money for a nice house, a nice car, a nice life. Nothing great.
Well, I think this lil writer needs to go to sleep sometime.
well, lets see how many typos I got first....

Holy cow, this is one long book of a post.

What if...

This dumb blog ate my blog last night! I'm not kidding, it ate it.
So yeah, I had some cool blog about what would the world be like if everyone blogged like I do. Seeing as a friend of my had posted "Chucky blogs like everyone should." So, that is what got me to thinking this. Even if I was thinking it last night. Eh, it happens.
no no....I'm not gonna type about silly girls any more. Unless....hum
So yeah, not much going on in the world of Josh right now. Though I am going out of town this weekend, I should get me a digi cam for that. I'm also going out of town next weekend.
So ya just keep it real!
peace out!

Employ of the month.

I can almost see my getting fired over this. Well, maybe written up...If they ask what I think. Last time I was asked "what?" when I was kinda shorta saying ok to a job that I didn't want to do. Well I told the boss man that "I'm not to found of doing bull shit work". Holy cow did the room go quite. Heck I was still a temp at this time.

Well anyways story on. There's this kid, yeah I call him a kid. He's a 31 year old kid. I'll call him Roger, yeah that sound good. Well this kid has been late soooooo many time I don't know why they haven't fired him. This kid lives in town (I drive 35 miles) he's any where from 5 to 15 min late, at his worst, I'd say about 3 - 4 times a week. I can count how many times I've been late, or any reason, on one hand. At 7am we have our morning meeting, saying who does what work that day, I can't count how many times it's been just me and the boss there at 7:04 or later. Has he been written up, nope. Only thing they have done to the kid is gave him a verbal counseling, we all know that means jack shit. Oh and they gave him employ of the month. That just bloggles the mind.

Yeah this was at our end of the month safety meeting too. After that I seen one of the mini boss dudes out side (the same one I said I didn't like bull shit work to) and asked him why he got the employ of the month? Man, did he get defensive or what. He even said that kids that say they don't like bull shit work got it (That's a one time deal, and I didn't get it till I worked my ass off and was recommended by my supervised) but I just let that one slide. I told the boss that I didn't see why he got it, I just got this look back. So then I said well I don't want to know what the reason was, that I was just hoping that there was more to it than I saw. At that point he kinda nodded.

There's two people that I can name off the top of my head that should have gotten it WAY before Roger did. But Roger seems to be all buddy buddy with the mini boss, so that makes it ok. 'Cause the mini boss wants to be friends with everyone.

Damn I sure hope I don't get asked what's wrong. 'Cause I would make the mistake of telling who ever asked. Well, I'd ask if they really wanted to know first. Then I'd get written up 'cause I'm such a bad employ, then I'd have to quit and see what happens. So I hope it doesn't come down to that, 'cause for the most part I like my job and people there. But, this is some stupid bullshit.

Roger got employ of the Month.....That boggles the mind and body.
