Well, English isn't going that poorly. I made it on time and was able to complete my homework in class. Sorry for the lame quiz updates and nothing of substance. I've been. . . distracted in the evening. Tuesday was pretty lame, it was spent in class like all my Tuesdays and Thursdays. Poor Amber hasn't been feeling well since then, she went out to her house in Paradise to let her mother take care of her. Turns out she has strep throat. I hope it wasn't contagious enough to get me sick. That would seriously suck. I started to take some antibiotics just in case I might get sick. I'm pretty much done with work for the year, have one more work day Sunday and that's it. I'm thinking about heading home for a day this weekend then coming back up Sunday morning. I just have a few things I need to do like get a co-signer application filled out for our possibly house next year. Also, I haven't been home in awhile and I'd like to be able to see my friends. Forrest, Melissa, Ali, Janine, Jay, Jeanette, Joey -- I miss them all. There are a few people here in Chico I miss as well. Since I had the play last week, I had been really busy. I would like to hang out with Amanda in Esken. I saw her briefly yesterday and walked with her to the post office before Ambra picked me up to go peek houses.

I was supposedly scheduled for work yesterday so I showed up at my call time. Walked around the PAC for twenty or thirty minutes and could not find my boss. I gave Ambra a call so we could meet up since I had nothing to do at work. As I mentioned earlier, she picked me up to go peek houses. We drove back to her place and grabbed the list we made last week. Then we headed up the stret and drove around looking for 'For Rent' signs. Ended up out at a properties management office down the Esplanade.

Man I'm fucking up in English... I stayed up to nearly 4am last night and then ended up not finishing my annotated bibliography. My English teacher is offering me and another guy a chance to makeup for not having all the past assignments. We wants us to turn in everything from now on. I just cannot find the motivation to do this shit. It's easy as fuck, but no motivation = harder than fuck. I just got out of the shower for class. I'm most likely going to handwrite or type this assignment during class. I'll claim the article search didn't go as well as I thought.

I've been looking for houses with a girl named Ambra and her friend Sasha. Thusfar, we've gone through the list we made and found one or two potentials. There's a house on West 15th Street that has a fence all the way around the house and would be killer for BBQs! If we move in here, it'll be $330/mo and make for a killer summertime / fall / spring time hangout. Just hope it stays warm in the winter. Ambra seems like a great person to room with, I just met her recently through an ad in the BMU. We'll see how this goes.

Well, that's all I can write for now, must head to class.

Sunday my parents woke me up. My dad said they'd come up around 1p, but they got here two hours early, freakin 11am! Might not sound that bad, if you went to bed at a normal hour. I sure as hell didn't. I went to sleep at like.. 4am. I had my final show of Every Man and ya, that went well. Oh ya, wrote about this already hehe. So, YESTERDAY, my parents were up. We went to Easter Brunch at The Black Crow downtown, they're kinda in a financial bind, so I had to pay a little bit for brunch. Not bad at all though, they'll get through their money woes. I found out they put my dog, Tango, to sleep. That really made me sad.. she had a stroke I guess and was paralyzed so it had to be done...

My parents hung around a little while and then my father and I went to the movies. We saw Tom Hanks in The Ladykillers. Both he and Marlon Wayans played hilarious roles. The movie was a B+ in my book! My mother didn't go because her back was bothering, she stayed and rested at my place. When we came back she was mopping my floor and had completely cleaned my entire apartment. I had kinda expected it, she did the same thing last time I tried to take her to the movies..

Last night was pretty much spent at home, I had some fun chatting with friends through Yahoo and such.. if you're ever bored you can send me a Y! IM at the Yahoo id: hrmf.

Today I expected to have breakfast brought to me, but that never happened unfortunately. That's what happens when you stay up until 4am then expect to have someone bring you breakfast at 7am when they did the same. Slept until 12 took a shower at 2p, then went out to get lunch and do my laundry. There were these SATAN children at the laundromat after I had lunch, it was ridiculous, the mother wasn't even trying to control them. Amber and her friend Amelia picked me up around 6p to get a bite to eat. We went to Windy's Chinese Restaurant and got a bunch of Chinese food. Came back to my place and chowed down, had some fun and realized that was the first time I had company over for dinner in my apartment. Wound up watching a bit of TV then wishing everyone a good night

Totally eventfilled weekend thus far. Headed over to Maple Street to visit Amber ([Bad username in LJ tag]. Picked up James beforehand so we could 'prepare.' We went over to Safeway and purchased a 6 pack of Guinness draught and a bottle of Jose Cuervo Classico tequila (mmm). We decided we'd drive there then walk home after the party.. well let's just say I didn't end up walking home, I didn't end up home for awhile. Met some cool people at the party, Amber was great. A little quiet, but enjoyable to be around. She was a great host and everyone else at the party was very welcoming. I daink a bit too much, if I could I would phone post the voicemail I left myself.

Anyways, I totally left this post open for hours, oops my bad. Well, back to the party. I rolled my car up and backed it in because they were playing music through the TV, I thought some bass would be good. Let that run for a long time, no problems at all. Hung around for a bit, prob until about 2am. I had 1/3 of a bottle of tequila silver, a glass of Kahlua, a margarita, and some Bailey's so no way was I driving home. I was told I could crash so I walked upstairs and Amber came with to make sure I was ok. I lied down, then got up and headed to the bathroom. I was at that turning point where I could throw up and not be ill in the morning, or I could hold it in and wakeup fucked up. Went back to the coach and fell asleep. Wokeup around 6:45am with Amber lying on a mattress across the way. We went out for a bit later on then I brought her home around noon. We had a good breakfast.

Today was pretty laid back. I went to the last day of the play and struck the set. Had pizza went home, had dinner, and then went to the cast party. That was a nice environment, got to see a lot of friendly faces. I might head back there just for a little bit to see what's going on, prob not though. My parents are coming up for Easter tomorrow. I figure I'll get a free meal out of it and maybe some clean clothes.. :)

Wow, our show went really well last night. Sold out crowd and expecting another full house this evening. My friend Janine came up and saw the show here and seemed to enjoy it so that's good. I'm almost caught up with all my school work, I still have a 4 page paper that I haven't written, it's over a week late. I've got to goto work in about an hour, gonna grab some dinner first of course. It's a bit toasty today, 85 degrees at the moment, I DONT THINK I CAN SURVIVE. Oh wait, *turns AC on*, much better.. This weekend should be fun, gonna goto jobsdhq311's shin dig down the road. Probably invite James to come along, he needs to get out, we usually stay in and watch movies. But now that it's all warm, I think some fresh air could do us some good. Heheh, my parents are visiting soon, maybe this week, maybe next.. who knows.. I really need to do laundry and clean if they come up. blah blah blah!

Been working on Every Man, the show is going great. Opening night was OK except I set off the fire alarm... the supply fan for the building was off when we were rehearsing otherwise it would have happened over the weekend. I worked the load-in and load-out for the Ani Difranco show. The road crew was cool and gave us all CDs at the end of the load-out. They handed out photographs of Ani and told everyone "Don't approach this person. Don't look at the person. Don't cross this person's path in anyway." I thought that was kinda weird. We all had to wear security passes too. She musta had a bad experience with a stalker. I crushed my finger last night during the load-out. I couldn't sleep all night because it hurt so god damned much! I had to goto the health center after lunch and have them drill a hole in my fingernail to release the pressure the blood was causing. Tonight the show ran fucking great, fog and all. I'm getting kinda tired, gooooodnight.

Woo, I've been busy this weekend. Started work with a play called 'Every Man: The Dance of Death,' it is a dance-oriented show about the story of a man who has no worth in his life and is facing his reckoning at an early age. Anyways, that's starting here Monday, tonight I have final dress rehearsal. I'm in charge of props for the show so I basically have to sit around and do squat during the performance. WHAT FUN. I'm gonna miss Ani Difranco tomorrow because of this show. Although, it's visually stunning so that kinda makes up for it.

I was working with Amanda Friday, really the first time I had spoken with her for a week. I called her Saturday to see how her weekend was going, then Wednesday to see how her trip to Monterey was. We were talking when she was working on the juliets and after I told her I missed her, she told me that I was getting 'too attached.' What kinda statement is that? 'Too attached' I've known her for a little over a month and really did miss her when she was gone. We've both been busy with school and work, but that doesnt mean she couldnt try to call me or anything. I hung out with her over spring break a couple times, and we did go on a few dates. I want to continue that here but if I can never get ahold of her.. not really sure what I should do. She called me earlier this morning JUST to ask if I had our boss's phone number.. *grr* I dunno whats up. I think she's really protective when it comes to relationships. I guess I'll just see how things go.

I've got to head to work now tho, fucking DST fucking everything up.

Monday was pretty lame, I worked some evolution vs creationism lecture "Intellectual Design" or some shit. Hey, at least I got paid for it. Tuesday I skipped my English class but made it to everything else, turned in my political advertisement for my media writing class, and um, chilled at home. Wednesday I hooked up with James and Crystal and we watched CSI for a bit. Around 2 we decided to goto the movies, drove out there and there wasnt anything playing until four... SOOOO we went to Ben and Jerry's and then headed back to James's place to watch the rest of CSI Las Vegas.

I should start watching CSI more often, I quite liked the season we watched... ooo, I got the gospel choir pictures developed so I'll drop one in here at the end.

I saw Steriogram, Yellowcard, and Something Corporate this evening. Show was pretty early, started @ 6pm and went until roughly 9:30p. All of the bands were good, and Something Corporate was of course AWESOME!! I've seen them three times live now, Portland, Seattle, and Chico. Now Floater just needs to come to Chico.. I'm gonna goto the movies tonight or tomorrow, not sure about tonight cuz I work at like 10am tomorrow. I start crew tomorrow night for a play in our black box theatre, Every Man. Should be fun, haven't worked a show for almost a year!

Been trying to get ahold of Amanda but I haven't spoken with her for nearly a week. And to think, we live in the same damn town, she's barely 1/2 a mile from me! Oh well, looking forward to next week cuz friends should be coming up for their spring breaks.

I was kinda hoping my boss wouldn't call me today. He did though and I am scheduled for work tonight. I have a 4-5 page paper due tomorrow that I'm not really looking forward to writing. It's total bullshit, fucking English class. My Sunday was a typical "ACCOMPLISH ABSOLUTELY NOTHING" day. I went to the gospel choir concert and snapped 3 rolls of film. Looking to sell prints to members of the choir, I got some good shots! Around 11 last night I went for dinner and some dumbass in his Honda tried to race me, I totally smoked him! I followed their whole posse out in the middle of nowhere to be an asshole. Blocked the road they went down and ate my dinner. I fell asleep randomly when I got home, and wokeup at 7:30, went to sleep, wokeup @ 11. Gonna go grab some lunch in a sec.

Hey-oh... bought my DMB + Jason Mraz tickets yesterday for an entire paycheck. Gotta nice and early to head to work, the show yesterday was for the Bidwell Generals, Vintage Sound, Chico Chic, Girl's Night Out, and Whirlwind. Bidwell Generals is a local choir group, the others were barbershop quartets. Pretty lame overall, althought I had fun with the co-workers. We always liven up even the dullest moments. Another reason why I loveee work. I haven't hung out with too many people, between work and school been rather busy. I tried to talk Janine into coming up here because she has today off but she didn't want to drive up :( So I didn't have any visitors this weekend. Friday I worked with Amanda which is always fun, I'm beginning to like her more and more, it's just hard to find time for us to be together... she is assistant stage managing ths musical I'll be working on and also works for the same people I do. Again, between work and school free-time is scarce. I did, however, manage to hang around with her for about an hour Friday. We got off work early so I figured I'd give her a ride back to her place and help her pack to leave for the weekend. We stopped at the Performing Arts Center to pickup my paycheck and so she could clear a few things up. I had been storing some food of hers in my refigerator so that was a quick stop by here.. headed back over to her place around 3, went over to her room and carried her stuff out to her van :) I enjoy being helpful.

After work yesterday, I headed over to UV to visit an old friend, Kristy, who I hadn't really hung out with in awhile. She's a RA over there and was on-duty so didn't have much time to spend over there. James finally called me around 11:30 and I asked what he was up to. Wanted to goto Woodstocks so we headed over. Purchased the largest motherfucking pizza I've ever seen. 16" X-Large "Meat Monster Special." Damn that was so good pizza. Watched a episode of Insomniac shot in Anchorage, AK on the summer solestice. Fucking like 11:45pm and bright and sunny outside. Tripped me out. Crashed relatively early and wokeup this morning. Gonna grab some lunch, Jamba Juice, shower, and goto the gospel choir concert.

Wow, what a blast. Just got back from the midnight movie showing of.. you guessed it! The Little Shop of Horrors with guest appearances by Bill Murray, Steve Martin, John Belushi, and John Candy. What a great movie, fun to watch and a blast to sing along to.

I worked a good 11 hour shift yesterday, did the load-in, setup, performance, and strike for the Newport Jazz Festival. The music that came from that stage was pure ecstacy. We had some of the best modern jazz players ON THE PLANET in Chico last night and they were all friendly and unbelievably talented. The drummer moved his hands like I'd never seen before and our trumpeter / vocalist did a scat battle. WOWOW. Got off work around 11:45 and totally crashed. Fell asleep with all my clothes on.

Speaking of work, I should sleep, I've got work @ 11 tomorrow. Oh, Amanda and I haven't hung out since we've beeen back in Chico. Kinda hard cuz she's got her musical and I have my work. I'll see her tomorrow at work so that should be cool.

Gotta think back in time so I can update. THIS IS WHY MISSING A DAY IS BAD. Friday night I hung out with Ami, we drove around town, ended up at True Love for a little while. Heard Jay talk about his network marketing scheme, surprisingly convinced a few people it was a good idea. Ami and I really weren't feeling the scene so I ditched my sister and took her back to her apartment. Pretty much just hung out at her place for a few hours until my drunk sister called me (she had gone to the bars with my friends, leaving us minors) and demanded a ride home. I said goodbye to Ami and headed to pickup my sis. We drove home because we were both exhausted. Saturday (20th) I was planning on taking my car to Brake Masters but I never did. I met up with Forrest at Coffeeworks briefly and then hung out with my sister. Janine had invited me to goto her sister's house in the Bay Area and I told her I would then totally blew her off. Basically, one of my old, old friends gave me a call and wanted to hang out. I hadn't seen him since last summer so I agreed. I usually NEVER flake on anyone, but I had to make an exception. Chris and I saw The Passion of Christ out at Century Folsom. I cannot fucking believe the price of tickets out there. God damned special weekend ticket price is $9.25. Movies here in Chico are like $6.75 or $7. You can see the first matinee of the day for $3.75! Oh well. I though the Passion was made to be too epic. If Mel Gibson wanted it to be an epic he should have made it at least 3 hours long, it stopped after about 2 hours of storytelling. I was also a bit ticked because it didn't really show Jesus' resurrection and that's pretty much what defines Christianity as a religion. I didn't hold too much of a philosophical discussion over the film because I went in not expecting much.

Sunday was my last full day home. I finally sorted my laundry and got it ready for the wash. Melissa and I spent the day together which was totally awesome. It was really the first day I was able to spend one on one with her. . . we watched The Little Mermaid and relaxed the entire day. I'm upset that I have to be in school up here because it makes pursuing a relationship incredibly difficult especially with an amazing person such as Melissa. She has found a new amazing girl to replace the hopeless Tiffany and yes, I do want her to be happy, but I wish she would give others an opportunity to make her happy.

Monday was spent with me, myself, and I. I spent most of the day gathering my things to head back to Chico. Left around 2p, got to my apartment about 3:30p. Relaxed and hung around town, had class today, nothing too spectacular. Just awaiting the weekend.

Well, last night was not as bad as I thought it would be. As I mentioned in my updated post, I missed a phone call from Melissa and when my phone tell me I had a message it was an hour too late. So, that was upsetting. Otherwise, my night was fun. I picked up Ami (lil_kazuko and headed to True..

Well more later, going skating with my sister.

Wokeup around 9 and headed out to the backyard to check out this tree my dad wants me to dig up. I grabbed a shovel and started going at it, fucking thing is rooted pretty deep. I decided to stop and go have lunch after I got a call from Melissa. We met at Chipotle downtown and had a good lunch together. She told me about her and Tiff and asked me to a rave tonight... more about that later. After lunch, got a big ol' hug from Melissa and wished her good luck with her kids 4-square game(they won!).

After lunch I finally saw Forrest today, good to see he is doing ok. He's having a few financial difficulties, but I'm sure he'll survive. I met him at his work down at Florin. He wanted to pickup his pay check, the only problem was, it was at his old store way over in Carmichael. He was really low on gas so off we drove all the way to Carmichael to pickup his check. Then I took him to the bank so he could get some money to fill his tank, what a surprise at the bank. Things were a little messed up with his checking account. Forrest temporarily resolved the issue. We stopped by his house after the bank and then headed to Starbucks @ Arden and Eastern. I don't typically goto Starbucks but I made an exception for Forrest. We came back here because he had to head to work, had some dinner, then drove him to Florin. Now I'm back home waiting for Melissa to call about the rave... it's getting rather late in the evening so I'm gonna pickup Ami and head to True until I hear from Melissa.

[update] The period before I wrote this when I was at Marshall's Melissa phoned me. My phone had no signal so she left a message. I missed the call totally. My fucking retarded phone didn't bother to tell me I had voice mail until an hour after the message. I missed out on a totally awesome night with Melissa :( [/update]

Somewhat of an uneventful day. I took my car out to the dealership to get some recall work done then phoned Melissa to ask her out to lunch. She declined, but hinted at dinner. She was busy getting ready for her class's big four square game. Since lunch was a no go, I called up Ali and see if she wanted to hang out. She said sure so I skateboarded on over to her house (she lives about a 1/2 mile from me). Almost killed myself going down a steep hill.. skateboards + steep hills = dangerous. Nonetheless, I did make it to her house in one piece. She had a few things to do, but we hung out on the couch and talked for awhile. Headed back home around 1:45 then tried to get ahold of Forrest. He wouldn't return my messages so I called one more time then gave up. I did originally plan to have lunch with him, but he was concerned about gas. So after scheduling lunch, I called back and told him that we'd hang out before he goes to work because he has to drive this direction.

The dealership called around 2p and told me that they couldn't do the work today and wanted to keep my car. I said hell no and had them come pick me up so I could get my car back. On the way back from the dealer I stopped at Jimboy's and grabbed a bite to eat then headed home. Hung around the house for a bit then decided to get a Jamba before dinner (Strawberries Wild [mmm]). Just had a salad, never really had dinner. Oh and Melissa's hint at dinner ended up being us meeting at True Love, which kinda disappointed me. We still hung out for a bit, but she was tired and headed up. I'm gonna goto her 4-Square game tomorrow if it's not cancelled..

After True Love, I met up with Janine here at my house. We hung out in the family room and had a good time. Partially watched a hip-hop / house music documentary called Scratch. She headed home about a bit ago, I do hope she's gotten home safely. I'm gonna go brush my teeth and put some jammies on and sleep, big day tomorrow :)

I'm sitting at Cup A Joe in San Francisco on their network with my friend Sky. We're such Vaio geeks! Tons of pictures to come. We went to Golden Gate Park, the beach, the Metreon, and a bunch of other places just having a blast. She's the friend from London I wrote about earlier. She called me last night and asked when I was coming down. I feel real bad because I promised a couple friends that I would visit them! I'm sorry Janine! I'll be home almost a whole week, until Monday now, I guess 5 days.

Went out with a friend for a walk last night, we chatted it up and had good times. Real laid back, haven't had such an open chat / great walk with someone in awhile. Which reminds me, I should force Forrest to go on a walk with me! Wow, what a great day again! I'm gonna take off here when they close, should be about 10-15 minutes. I'll be back in Sac pretty quick, maybe around 11:30p

Amanda came and visited me last night... we went to the movies and saw Hidalgo. For an action adventure, Viggo Mortenson was great. The story subtly links to a lot of folklore and hardships a group of people have gone through. Needless to say, Amanda and I had a good night, she's a fun person to hang out with and has a good head on her shoulders. Afterwards, I took her to the True Love Coffeehouse to meet a few of my friends. Forrest and Melissa were supposed to be there, but when we arrived only Melissa had shown up. I'll have to hang out with Forrest later on. I feel like I kinda excluded Amanda from the conversation for a little bit while I caught up with Melissa and I'm going to apologize to her for that. Mel seems very happy recently except she's not finding what she wants. What do I have to do to get her attention just for one night? I feel like I'm jumping up and down waving my arms for it and she's ignoring me. I feel at times she's uncomfortable pursuing a relationship with me... I'd like to see how our trip to the movies goes tonight.

I'm enjoying my break thusfar, going down the list of people to see one by one. I've got a few days left yet still so who knows what's going to happen. I want to use them wisely as my time here is precious. I'll be back to school and midterms next week :(
