Life does not hate me after all!!!
I think I might just have my lobster, or so my sister insists, lol.
I cannot explain the euphoria that goes along with meeting and being with a person you see as pretty much as perfect as it gets. I am still searching for the fatal flaw or the moment at which I will wake up.
Well here are Kudos to my sister for being a psychic, lol.

Well here is to having basically died and fallen off the face of the planet. I am finishing up school, last term coming up, and putting applications into Federal Bureaus. Let's see....I love my family very much and spend as much time with them as possible. I outgrew the partying phase and basically ceased that with one or two exceptions. I cut the fat from my life and kept what was mutually beneficial. Trying to keep in shape, keep sane, and stay true to the people that are here and have been here. Hmmmm. Nothing monumental, no whining or complaining...that is a new one for me on here at least, lol. Decided that whining is for wimps and bitching should be left to others. Not to mention it is far too troublesome for me to stress over, lol. No self-pity complex, no other complex that could really get annoying. Well if anyone wants to start over at square one that does not have my number feel free to drop it here. I truely hope that the people that read this that I do not talk to very much are doing well and that they are happy to boot. Well you are all in my thoughts and hopes.
Best Wishes

Well things sure persist on being interesting. I can safely say that I am very happy finishing up school at Wayne State and loving things down there. I have made some friends already and have some study partners to boot. I joined a Muay Thai/Kickboxing class down on campus and "failed to mention" I am a Muay Thai fighter, yeah that lasted all of three kicks, not even full power, before the instructor said "You are sandbagging me"...lol. The bonus is I am one of two guys in a class of 18, and every girl in there is all about getting in shape and looking to me as a instrcutor of sorts....Possibility for corruption = 100% :-P I love the classes down there though and have taken 18 credit hours this term and 20 credit hours next term, I want to be done ASAP. Still waiting on two positions at Home Depot, I hate how long promotion interviews take. Got a new Car though!!!! I am super excited about my new ride :) hmmmm, I barely have time to breathe, but that should change a bit once I get Saturdays and Sundays off work :) Well time to shower and get back to school, I am there all the time..lol. Hope that everyone that reads this, and even my friends who do not, is doing well and I keep you all in thought regardless of how often we might talk anymore.

Pure Nerd

69 % Nerd, 17% Geek, 13% Dork

For The Record:



A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.

A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.

A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.



You scored better than half in Nerd, earning you the title of: Pure Nerd.



The times, they are a-changing. It used to be that being exceptionally
smart led to being unpopular, which would ultimately lead to picking up
all of the traits and tendences associated with the "dork." No-longer.
Being smart isn't as socially crippling as it once was, and even more
so as you get older: eventually being a Pure Nerd will likely be
replaced with the following label: Purely Successful.



Congratulations!





Also, you might want to check out some of my other tests if you're interested in any of the following:



Buffy the Vampire Slayer




Professional Wrestling






Love & Sexuality




America/Politics

Goo Goo Dolls
Well today was a decent day of working, hockey and ....oh yeah GOO GOO DOLLS CONCERT. I got to go watch them on the 18th hole of the TCP in Dearborn, which was rather interesting. I got to go with Stacey and Rachel, which made it rather interesting :-P
It was an extremely hot day today and I was trying my damndest to stay cool but we ended up standing in the scorching sun to get a VERY close view of the Goo Goo Dolls. It was alot of fun, even if a little hectic. We had some idiots in front of us that felt compelled to get hammered, but ah well. I sorta became the barrier between the idiots and our group plus this middle aged couple who was standing next to me. The couple appreciated me being the human barrier between us and the drunken fools and gave me and the girls some waters and a cool key chain with a halogen light on it :) Well work comes early and I am a busy freaking boy so off to bed. Need to get up and run in the morning before work so night night

Life
Well I am not dead, contrary to popular belief, and decided to post in here for once. I got the runaround from the military recruiters and decided that I was simply going to finish pursuing school and then give them a second chance when done with that. I have invested full time back into my fighting arts and have found that was a part of my life that I put away that gives me great joy. I will be entering amateur Muay Thai fights in the next few months and will keep everyone informed. I had an opportunity to meet Saekson Janjira, a legend in the Art of Muay Thai, and that was a life changing event. Just when it seems that you have things on track again your train gets derailed by people who would just as soon lie to you as tell the truth, recruiters. Well I learned from yet another set back and hopefully I am not too old to get somewhere in life, lol. There are so many paths I have been on and amazingly enough I am still here, Thank god my father has taught me perseverence. On an odd note I have had the weirdest dreams recently. The past two nights I have had dreams about my ex girlfriend Melissa. To preface that, I have barely thought about her in the past 6-7 years and now two dreams in a row. I woke up and it was one of those dreams where you wake up scratching your head wondering what the hell and why you just dreamed what you did, lol. Well anyhow time to go mow the lawn, meet with skippy and then off to the hell borne Home Depot to work the night away. Take care people and best of luck

Kinda intersting
You scored as Romanticist. Romanticism encourages society to look backwards to find our solutions. Your rationale is that things were much better a few hundred years ago so we should thus look back to those times and replace them in our modern society. You believe in a simple life and that the complexities of the modern world have turned it upside down.

Good things come to those who wait... or so I am told.
I am sort of frustrated in my ventures currently. I have recently initiated talks with the Air Force to round out my talks with all branches, and they seem to have the most reputable program and give the least crap to people. I must consider all options before making such a lasting decision at this point in my life. I have also come to the realization that I want so much more out of life. I want to have a job I love, have friends that I can depend on and fall head first into love with a person that I can just lose myself in and not care about how crazy in love I am. I want to feel again, I want to care. I never want to fall back to those apathetic days I formerly knew. I reflected recently on the past and noticed very clearly that the spectres of the past pay me no mind and therefore I should show them the same indifference. I acknowledge their presence, but ignore their pleas for attention. Life can truely drag you down if you allow it to. I understood this evening, in a slight epiphany, that many of the things I have done or said have been done for the sake of someone acknowledging my existence. I realized how pitiful it is to seek that and know that I must endeavor to find that within myself. I reflect and see how blessed I have been in the past and must use that strength for the future. How difficult it is to understand your own persistent lack of connectivity harder yet to overcome it. To understand that no link blinks when you are absent, almost discouraging. Honne Tatemai ...... Faux Front ....... Facade. Moving on..... Who knows. Why?

Thoughts
I guess without fear we would all advance into a dangerous situation unaware of our predicaments. I guess. I can say with no hesitation that this is the most nervous I have been in my entire life. I just wish I knew the right path, or at least had the ability to understand my own path. There is such a strong dichotomy between what is here at home and the relationships I have built, and the great unknown that is following my dream. I guess I will never live it down if I do not go for my dreams. Well here is to a little doubt, ah well

Fun quizzes :)
Robot
You are 71% Rational, 14% Extroverted, 42% Brutal, and 0% Arrogant.

You are the Robot! You are characterized by your rationality. In fact,
this is really ALL you are characterized by. Like a cold, heartless
machine, you are so logical and unemotional that you scarcely seem
human. For instance, you are very humble and don't bother thinking of
your own interests, you are very gentle and lack emotion, and you are
also very introverted and introspective. You may have noticed that
these traits are just as applicable to your laptop as they are to a
human being. In short, your personality defect is that you don't really
HAVE a personality. You are one of those annoying, super-logical people
that never gets upset or flustered. Unless, of course, you short
circuit.



To put it less negatively:

1. You are more RATIONAL than intuitive.

2. You are more INTROVERTED than extroverted.

3. You are more GENTLE than brutal.

4. You are more HUMBLE than arrogant.



Compatibility:


Your exact opposite is the Class Clown.


Other personalities you would probably get along with are the Hand-Raiser, the Emo Kid, and the Haughty Intellectual.


*


*


If you scored near fifty percent for a certain trait (42%-58%), you
could very well go either way. For example, someone with 42%
Extroversion is slightly leaning towards being an introvert, but is
close enough to being an extrovert to be classified that way as well.
Below is a list of the other personality types so that you can
determine which other possible categories you may fill if you scored
near fifty percent for certain traits.


The other personality types:

The Emo Kid: Intuitive, Introverted, Gentle, Humble.

The Starving Artist: Intuitive, Introverted, Gentle, Arrogant.

The Bitch-Slap: Intuitive, Introverted, Brutal, Humble.

The Brute: Intuitive, Introverted, Brutal, Arrogant.

The Hippie: Intuitive, Extroverted, Gentle, Humble.

The Televangelist: Intuitive, Extroverted, Gentle, Arrogant.

The Schoolyard Bully: Intuitive, Extroverted, Brutal, Humble.

The Class Clown: Intuitive, Extroverted, Brutal, Arrogant.

The Robot: Rational, Introverted, Gentle, Humble.

The Haughty Intellectual: Rational, Introverted, Gentle, Arrogant.

The Spiteful Loner: Rational, Introverted, Brutal, Humble.

The Sociopath: Rational, Introverted, Brutal, Arrogant.

The Hand-Raiser: Rational, Extroverted, Gentle, Humble.

The Braggart: Rational, Extroverted, Gentle, Arrogant.

The Capitalist Pig: Rational, Extroverted, Brutal, Humble.

The Smartass: Rational, Extroverted, Brutal, Arrogant.

Big Day
Well Friday is the big day, processing day. I have to go down to MEPS and get processed for my physical evaluation and job placement. I am a little nervous and I am sure that will only mount as the days go by, time will tell. I will get my leave date this Friday or Saturday and then can start planning get togethers and whatnot. After all the self doubt and lack of conviction for so very long, here we are at the precipice of too late. As scary as such a choice seems to me, I have nothing but faith that I am making the right decisions. Now is the time to put the pedal to the grindstone and get things done, no questions asked. I should have about 90 days to leave, but since the nature of me getting this job is favor after favor for such a high profile position, I may have only 3-4 weeks at worst case scenario. We shall find out Friday and that kinda scares me a little, but ah well. Maybe fear is not a good word there, nervousness? anticipation? I apologize to everyone for falling off the face of the earth, no one is being excluded, I have just been more busy recently than I have in my recorded history. So many manuals to read and things to prep for, refreshers up the ying yang and then to work out and train people at kickboxing...yeah spare time is not something I have lately. Not to mention I know I have been bad about keeping my phone on me, I am trying to keep that under tabs though. Well I have to get back to reading my Chinese and manuals again, that will never end apparantly. Take care and hope everyone is well and for sure there will have to be a get together before I leave in grand fashion. Lata

Ben continues to taunt me with fun LJ quiz thingys
Your brain: 40% interpersonal, 120% visual, 60% verbal, and 180% mathematical!
Congratulations on being 400% smart! Actually, on my test, everyone is. The above score breaks down what kind of thinking you most enjoy
doing. A score above 100% means you use that kind of thinking more than
average, and a score below 100% means you use it less. It says nothing
about how good you are at any one, just how interested you are in each, relatively. A substantial difference in scores between two people means, conclusively, that they are different kinds of thinkers.




Matching Summary: Each of us has different tastes. Still, I offer the following advice, which I think is obvious:


  1. Don't date someone if your interpersonal percentages differ by more than 80%.
  2. Don't be friends with someone if your verbal percentages differ by more than 100%.
  3. Don't have sex with someone if their math percentage is over 200%.

Curious Occurences
I had the most interesting weekend. On Saturday I was supposed to go out with Deo and a rather large group of people to Seven, but that fell through when the birthday boy, Larry, got arrested for a Felony charge of fleeing and evading the police on his crotch rocket.....yeah. So I go out with Ben, Jason and Matt and we go to Canada to have some fun over there and meet some friends. It was a great night up until we went home for the night. We had some fun with some bar owners that we know over there, although I was DD and stayed clean :). Well on the way home we see an accident and it is a pretty bad one, the guy slams the concrete median and we see a lady pulled over in front of him on I-75. We stop the car and I run out to help this guy, well the car is smoking and I rip the door open and pull the guy out. The guy was facially a complete mess, the rest I was unsure of. I took some vitals and tried patching him up with what little supplies I had, let me tell you the entire front end of the car was gone. So I am talking to these two arabic ladies who stopped for some reason just before I got there. I ask them why and they say they were gonna help....yeah help by sitting in your car....riiiiight. I start asking them qwuestions about what happened and they try to pull away, I stand in front of their car and tell them to feel free to run me over, but that is the only way they are leaving without the police being present or me getting the info I want to get. That started to prove fruitless as her story changed about four times and I am trying to treat this guy with head injuries. He cannot remember a damn thing about how he got in the accident and is really out of it, although his vitals were doing rather well. It is about 10 minutes since I got there and the only person to arrive yet is a tow truck. Well the victims SUS is on the far right side of the expressway on I-75 and the tow truck is blocking most of the lane, leaving about 5 feet between his right front fender and the bumper of the victims car. So I am about 15 yards in front of the SUV talking to these dumbass ladies, cars are running over the debris and I am getting pelted with plastic and a little glass...not very fun, But the guy is stabilizing and I am happy with that. Well this tow truck guy screams out to get near the overpass wall and I look to react and take one step forward. I look over and as I do a car slams into the bumper of the victims car, bounces off and hits the tow truck, bounces again and is coming straight at me. I dive towards the wall and as far as I am told by the other witnesses the car misses killing me by about 2 feet. I could feel the wind clipping my heels as I dove and rolled out of the way. Yeah so there is my near death experience. Today was interesting at the Home Depot, a guy had a countertop fall on his head adn that turned into a real mess. I had to stabilize a guy with a bad head wound and hypoglycemia, interesting indeed. Ah well I am a mess and have not slept in quite a while and still managed to work out every day for the past few days. Well I am off to get to bed, I need the sleep before I start my new martial arts school tomorrow. I found a school that teaches the Israeli combat system used by many SF units the world over. Well take care people and I truely hope that everyone is safe and happy, I know I am thanking my lucky stars and one truck driver at the right place at the right time to save my life.

Ben and these damn quizzes
You represent... apathy.
You represent... apathy.
You don't really show any emotion. You can be
considered cruel and cold, but you just don't
really care about anything. This is just the
way you are... you're quite a challenge to get
close to, and others may perceive you as
boring.


What feeling do you represent?
