Worken the weekend

So far I worked about 12 hours today and I'm sure I'll do about the same tomorrow.

been trying to raise a sunken barge at school. At no other school could you do this. I'm sure I'll get paid a lil something, not sure what. What I'm learning just doing this is priceless in it self.

ok....after 9pm time for me to get some sleep.

This one is for you

Yup for you...the reader.

why did you go into the military in the first place?
Well my dad was going in the Air Force to be a pilot. Long story short, things didn't work out. I was talkin to the same recruiter since my sophomore yeah in high school (I didn't go in until after one and a half years of Jr. College). At first I wanted to be an officer in the Air Force. Only to find out that I was sick of school and didn't want to do the 6 years it was going to take to get my 4 year degree.


What got you interested in this underwater welding thing?
Nothing is as scary as getting out of the military and not knowing what you are going to end up doing. I've been welding off and on since highschool. I even did it in the military. If I'm just a normal welder the most I might make is $34-40 an hour and that's still doing hard work. It's nothing really that cool. I started looking at it back when I was getting out, it took me about 2 years before I put my application in.

The career that I wanted...was going to be something really cool. Something I'm not doing for the money but for the adventure of getting there!


When was the last time you cried?
I would guess some time around Oct '04 - Jan '05. Went through some hard times.

What do you like on your pizza?
I'm a simple kind of guy...hum isn't there a some from that. I just like cheese and pepperoni.


Would you rather be the tin man, the scarecrow, or the lion in Wizard of Oz?

I think the tin man. If I had to pick witch one of the above I'm more like, I think that would be the scarecrow.

Brain dump


I got a few things going on that I wanna blog about. kinda. Everything from some fugly porn "stars" to school and my car and why I have the Eagles playing and well...

I wouldn't say that I have a lot on my mind, 'cause I sure don't. I found the company that I really want to work for. They have the contract with the Navy for doing submarine rescue! ...humm maybe some not so fugly porn "starts" too. The company that I want to work for dives the suits that I added the picture of. There's only a hand full of people that get to do that in the world.

I want to be one of them! That is my new goal! I want to dive one of those! They are called Atmospheric Diving Suit or ADS. They also go deep. "Capable of operating in up to 2000 feet of seawater for a normal mission of up to six hours." 2000 feet! That's crazy, almost a half a mile below the water. That's about twice as deep as a Sat. diver can go. Sat divers also don't get to see day light or breath fresh air for a month.

video

Humm what else. I guess I could see if anyone of the 3 people that read this have anything that want to know about me. Only problem is that I really don't want to make this blog that personal. I guess it kind of is already. I guess I just don't want to get any more so.

Maybe I should just brush my teeth and get some sleep. I already got my heated blanket on so my bed will be oh so nice and warm.

So I said to him

YaY post 650!

Ok well that wasn't what I said. What I really said was, "I really just don't have to give you a ride to school anymore."

The past 4 or so classes I have been giving one of my roommates a ride to school and back. He hasn't said thanks, offer to help with gas, anything. I worked so I could have my own car. He is 28 and has never owned a car. I hate....HATE the feeling that I'm just being used. So when this guy just thinks I'm going to give him a ride to school just because I have an empty seat and I'm going there anyways. Well news flash buddy, I have that seat empty for a reason. That seat has been empty because I want anyone in it. That is why I have my own car.

So he asked why I didn't want to take him to school. I knew what ever reason I gave him he'd find a reason why it's not a big deal or tell me something he did for me. I gave him one reason and he said something back, like I knew he would. So I just had to tell him that "I just really don't want to take to you school anymore."

His reply was, "I hope you can find happness in your life."
And just to end it, "Me too..."

I was kinda waiting for him to say something about buddy fucking him. Then I would have replied "buddy fucking like you help pay for gas?" "Buddy fucking like you eat my food and replace it?"

Even after talking to my roommates after it, because I wanted to know what he had to say behind my back. They all agree with me. They called me a jerk, but agreed with all of my reasons.

A day in the life of a commercial diving student

A day in the life of a commercial diving student

Add to My Profile | More Videos


Same school just different campus. They do all their training in nice clean fresh water tanks. We do ours in the LA harbor. Not as clean, but I believe it's better training.

Fuck part II

Why can't I just have at least a semi normal family. Why? I'm sure that's why I'm so anti family.

"help and support" two areas that I'm not good with. How come I can't just call people a "crazy bitch" and have that fix everything.

Stupid!

Wednesday, January 16, 2008

I need a back massage.

Ok after everthing that went on last night, my welding test this morning, lack of sleep, and work. I'm tired. Real tired. I also wonder what would have happened if I had asked her out. I know there is no point in knowing the answer. There is also no point more so 'cause I've moved 5 hours south and soon to move 2,000 east. Oh well. Story of my life.

I'm going to be asleep by 8:30pm

Tuesday, January 15, 2008

Fuck!

I need to blog. Maybe this will help. I can't blog about what I want. two reasons for this: 1) I'm sure I know what y'all will say and 2) it's family related. Maybe I'll just make me a new private blog. For reasons just like this. Fuck!

There are a few people I could call up and say "My brother just told me........" But I'm not going to. Even though I know they will say "you should have called...."

well shoulda woulda coulda.


I can deal with my own problems. I get real quiet and anti social, but I deal with them. I don't like to and don't want to bring other people into my problems. So I don't. And that in turn leads to really big walls around me.

So I just sit here doing this and well I guess I might as well watch the second half of
Hannibal Rising (2007) I'm sure that would help put me in a better mood. Fuck!Fuck Fuck!

Fuck why does do this.

Weekend, paintball, internet, google, phone call, ect

Yeah I'm going to cover all this in this post.

weekend
Well it went good. Didn't really get to sleep in though. Last night I did go to bed around 9pm, so that helped a lot.


Paintball

is sooo fun. I got a nice lil bruise on my back. How'd I get hit in the back you might ask your self. Well I think it was friendly fire! Then the round before that I got hit by some lucky shot that just happened to hit my arm. There is a little spot there, but you really can't see it.

Internet and Google
Ok these two I'm going to put together. The internet is such a great tool (lol @ great tool). Isn't it just cool when you google your name and find something new? I think someone did that. Not really a bad thing, just didn't think it was going to happen. I did know it could happen.

Phone call
So while I was at work today. Sometime before noon. I get a call from some number I never seen before. Well I let it go to voice mail, because I'm not going to answer my phone at work. Well it ended up being from that guy. The recruiter for the company that I want to work for. I couldn't believe it. He found this blog! ohnoes. Oh well it's all good.

Etc.
humm yeah I can't remember.

My finished letter

YaY I'm done with it. I'm going to mail it out next week.


Dear

Subject: Candidate for Diver / Tender Position

I am writing in regards to the Diver / Tender position that is listed on the Global Industries web site. In July a recruiter from Global Industries came to the National Polytechnic College of Science. I really enjoyed the presentation that he gave; as a result, I would like the opportunity to start my career with Global Industries.

I am currently still in school in Wilmington, CA. My graduation date is in May 2008, at this time I will be ready for employment.

As your employee, I will welcome hard work and be willing to learn new skills. I pride myself on my dependability and ability to work well in a fast paced team environment. I would appreciate an opportunity to work with Global Industries. Thank you for your consideration, I can be reached at (559) 367-3854 or e-mail ____________@gmail.com.

My First time

Well ok it wasn't today. Yesterday was my first time!




At welding under water! yes, that's right folks. I should also add that I'm awesome at it! I'm going to be one of the best in the class. Ok so there are only 6 in the class, but that isn't the point. I still rock! I spent an hour in the water and it didn't even seem like it. I was getting a little cold there at the end.

Welding underwater is awesome!

and that is more or less how the rest of my school is going to be :)


AWESOME!

Men’s Health - 50 Things Men (Dudes) Wish You (Chicks) Knew

Men’s Health has a pretty funny (and true) article with 50 things that ladies should know about us dudes, how we think, and how to please us. The full list is after the jump.

1. Express yourself. It makes us proud, even if someone thinks you’re wrong.

2. You look hot in running shoes and shorts. And that top thingy with the stripes.

3. Bare, tan shoulders are underrated.

4. If you think I’m speeding now, you should see me drive when you’re not in the car.

5. If you’re truly interested in us, don’t play hard to get.

6. Shopping is a chore, not an activity.

7. When I screw up, go ahead and tell me–once.

8. No question need ever be asked through a closed bathroom door if I’m inside. I love you less with each syllable you utter.

9. I’m hot for you, not your sister or your friend or your coworker.

10. My guy friends. Not only are they not negotiable, they’re your best sign that I’m not a whack job.

11. Don’t be afraid to ditch the makeup. Natural is sexier.

12. Leave the eyebrows alone. Plucked ain’t pretty.

13. You can have sex with us any time you want. Seriously.

14. When the game is on, we will pay attention to you if you’re nice about it. Bark, and we shut down.

15. I don’t ask for directions because I’m just happy to be driving. Anywhere.

16. Masturbation is merely practice for the big game. Encourage it.

17. We crave hugs and hand-holding too. And no, it doesn’t always have to lead to sex.

18. But you can have sex with us any time you want. Did we mention that?

19. There’s no better sound in the world than you, having an orgasm.

20. Though the exhaust note of a Porsche Boxster is pretty damn fine, too.

21. I just may lie to make you feel good. Don’t be angry about this. You really weren’t looking for the truth anyway.

22. When you get angry over some stupid little pointless thing, I question your intelligence.

23. You’re really bad at faking it.

24. If I offer my help while you’re getting ready, it means you’re late.

25. Never ask me to pick out your outfit. (See above.) I will invariably get it wrong and make us even more late.

26. Giving me two or three choices, however, can be fun. Assuming you will change outfits in front of me. Slowly.

27. Err on the side of hot; I love to show you off.

28. Unless we’re meeting my parents.

29. When you call us at work “just to chat,” we’re not really listening; we’re checking our e-mail.

30. Spring means baseball and skirts. Doesn’t need to be a mini-skirt; it’s been a long winter.

31. Chicks who drink beer are hot. Better yet: chicks who drink beer and watch the game. Better still: chicks who buy us a beer during the game.

32. We don’t mind being told we look good. Just don’t call it a “cute outfit.”

33. We love ponytails.

34. Being good in bed means a) enthusiasm; b) a sense of humor; and sometimes c) patience.

35. The first time? We’re as nervous as you are.

36. A random unexpected grope is always welcome, even in public. Especially in public.

37. Make us laugh and we’ll want to hang around.

38. Yes, I laugh really loud around the guys. And I always will, so deal.

39. Sure, men stereotypically like to solve a woman’s problems. But a woman who solves her own while we watch? Instant erection.

40. You can pick the movie, but have a reason.

41. Do not expect to have a conversation via text message unless you use the words “naked” and “waiting.”

42. Sometimes we wonder why any woman would want to be with us, much less someone as amazing as you. So, thanks.

43. Anytime you cook for us, we’re happy.

44. If you can hit a golf ball 150 yards, we just might fall in love.

45. No, I don’t remember what he said next. Or she. Or anybody, for that matter. I’m a guy, not a tape recorder.

46. We love you even more because you know we need to go out with the guys once in a while.

47. And we love it when you hang with us guys, too.

48. We have a keen sense of imminent danger. It sounds like, “Do you think she’s pretty?”

49. Don’t rely on us for keeping you up on the news.

50. Never say, “I know you better than you know yourself.” Nobody does.

Just some random awesome videos

anti social

i find it funny that i feel very anti social today, but yet i still feel like blogging. well just how social is blogging? sure y'all can leave comments, but that isn't until you come here to read.

i guess i got an issue with a co worker (i'm glad none of them read this) she said something about a friend of mine that just bugged me.

eh, that's life...

you asked for it

i believe someone said "pics or it doesn't count" or something like that when i said i was sooooooooo cool for having black shoes black pants with white socks on.

well here it is. this will go and show you just how cool i am :-)

Wednesday, January 02, 2008

Well....They are back.

All the roommates are back. Yay oh Yay. If I never have a roommate again, i think I'll be just fine. Blah. Well tomorrow should be an easy day of school. First day in a new class and out class got smaller. So that's all good.

Blah

In less than a year.

You will see a new post about a new truck. I already found what I want, now I just need a job and money. So I'll by a used one if I can find out that I like. When I say "used" I'm talking about a used 2007 or maybe a 2006 truck. I'm thinking I'll just buy a new 2008 at the end of 2008.

So that's my goal for 2008 =)
