The Times They Are A-Changin'

The other day I went to Best Buy and bought $65 in CDs. Out of all the music I bought, right now I am being drawn to the songs that are the most solemn.

I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that in a week I will be moving away from the places and people that I have been around for the last 18 years. Granted, I will only be right up in the U District and coming home on the weekends, but it will definitely be different. My family who I see pretty much everyday right now, won't be there everyday.

Don't get me wrong, I'm excited to move into my dorm and start college, but I'm afraid that I won't be as close to my family once I go. I'm just worried I guess.

I don't know.

In My Life

On Wednesday I officialy became an Eagle Scout. I never really realized what a big deal it was to people until that night. I just hope I can live up to the expectations. Also it was really cool to see all the people who showed up to my Court of Honor, even though a couple of key people were missing from the audience. That was disappointing, but I understand the natures of their absences.

On another note, its comforting to know that I'm loved and cared for by a family besides my real one. I don't know that comforting describes the feeling right, but its the best I can come up with right now. In reality, knowing that I'm loved by them creates such a deep and complex feeling that I can't describe it.

I heard people say a lot of different things about me and to me on Wednesday. Lots of "Congratulations" and other such things, but the most touching one came later that night after everything and was pretty much unrelated to me becoming an Eagle Scout. It was my favorite though. I was told that one day I would make somebody a proud mother-in-law. It was kind of cliche, but I appreciated it greatly.

Hello Goodbye

One year ago today I lost my first car after owning it for only a month.

Rest in peace Gran Torino. You are missed.

And So It Goes

Today was my last day in Builder's Room. I'm going to miss it. Building furniture is fun.

I am quite relieved that I didn't have to go on the second date tonight. Like I said before, she's not really my type, and the first date didn't go so well I feel.

Instead I went out with the guys to Applebee's for half-price appetizers and all-you-can-eat riblets. One problem though, they cut us off after only three helpings of riblets. Oh well, I was way full anyways.

Feeling Yourself Disintegrate

I feel like a zombie. I've felt like one for the last couple of weeks. All I've done is work and sleep. Occasionally interupted by some computer time.

In other news, the girl is nice enough. But she's not really my type. And I might not have to go on the second date with her. Which would be a bit of a relief.

Also, Elvis Costello is an amazing musician.

Another Day

I might be in with her, but is she in with me? I don't know yet.

Also, Resident Evil: Apocalypse wasn't as bad as I originally thought it would be.

Could Well Be In

We'll see this evening and Tuesday if I am in. You never know.
