to waste time, i've decided i'm due for my bi-yearly semiupdate for all of my dedicated livejournal readers. (yeah, all zero of them)
so what's been going on in my life lately?
well, going back to last semester, i was one grade off from a 4.0 (i got a B in one class, all the rest were A's). crazy, right? mr. academic probation/getting nearly all W's in one semester is now on the dean's list his first semester of "real" college.
well...i'm trying to continue the trend this semester, but it's not easy. i've got a pretty lax schedule as of right now, but one class in particular, statistics, is kicking my ass pretty bad. i've always hated math, and i vowed to myself 2 semesters ago that i would never, ever take another math class ever again in my entire life. to ensure this promise, i had made me major in english, a subject that's just about the furthest thing away from math that i can possibly get. so, what happened? i've decided that english was not only a stupid and "easy way out" for me, and was leading me in the direction to do nothing other than teach, but i've also decided to further indulge my interest in psychology, which will hopefully be my new major as of next semester. and of course, psychology requires all of it's students to have passed a statistics course with a C or better, and i figured if i really wanted to be in a psychology major that bad (which, as of right now, i do), i might as well get the difficult shit out of the way and be able to focus on nothing my psychology studies next semester. so that's that.
also, a big event that will be happening in my life very soon is getting my very own apartment. living on campus has had it's many ups--being within 2 minutes walking distance from stephanie, walking to class, which means pretty much never driving and never having to worry about a gas bill, to name a few--but with the ups there come many downs that i have just decided that i don't want to deal with. my roommates aren't terrible people, but they're not people i ever want to live with ever again. it's pretty much a repeat of the living conditions i dealt with in davis last year, only these people aren't my best friends, and so this time i have absolutely no tolerance for it. so in less than 3 weeks i will be moving into these brand new apartments down on expressway and having my own living space for the first time ever. i'm totally pumped. it's going to kinda suck driving to school now, but it's a sacrifice that i'm willing to make in order to be able to have a place that i'm not sharing with any other inconsiderate slobs like the people i'm living with right now. parties will be had, i'm sure.
i'm actually moving right in the middle of my spring break. before i move, alex is coming home for a few days, which means we get to fuck up my current on-campus apartment even more than its fucked up right now before i peace outta there, then on easter sunday i go to denver to visit my grandmother for 2 days. i come back from denver, then the next day i move into the apartment. then the day after that is stephanie's birthday, so i'll be really busy...but i'm really looking forward to all that good stuff.
other than studying and looking forward to the future, not much else has been happening really. i've seen a handful of really good movies lately (zodiac, black snake moan, shooter, to name a few) and i've been coming home to stockton every once in a while to kick it with grayson, and also i finally got to see saul for the first time in forever a few weeks ago.
well, i guess that's all i really have to ramble about right now. as i said before, i really should be studying for a statistics midterm that i have on tuesday. i'd say that i'll update soon if anything significant happens...but i'd hate to be a liar.

new year [Jan. 1st, 2007|03:33 pm]

[Current Music |nas - black republican feat. jay-z]

so last night's new year's eve was....quite eventful. it didn't really go the way any of us had hoped, i think...but that's what happens when things don't get planned. it was still a good night, in my opinion....we were supposed to originally go to tahoe...then that fell through. then we were supposed to go to davis and drink wikis....but i didn't want to book a hotel room until i knew who all was going to go...and then finally, as of 3pm yesterday, some of us were going to have a hotel party in lodi. our group thusfar had included myself, stephanie, grayson, saul, vince, sabrina, alex, and niqui. vince and sabrina were at work, and vince didn't get off til 10...so he decides to tell me that i should book the hotel room. well...long story short, the hotel room didn't get booked, and we just decided to shitcan the whole "hotel party" anyway, since no one really wanted to stay the night anywhere other than their own house. so, we just decided to stick with the group we had (myself, stephanie, grayson, alex and niqui) and go to a bar. we had already had drinks at dave wong's, then me and the 2 guys had sparx right before we went to the bar....i thought it would keep my buzz going, but it ended up making me hyper/drunk/sick, so i ended up pretty much being at the height of my hyphyness before we even hit the bar, and the thought of ordering a drink was making me sick. it was still fun though, as we were able to get a table at basil's. it wasn't too crowded or noisy and filled with morons, and we had gotten there just in time for the midnight countdown. after about an hour at the bar, we decided to call it a night...and that was that. not quite as eventful as last year...but goodtimes. and there's always next year.
this past year has seriously gone by so quick i can't even believe it. from enjoying the last few months of the apartment in davis, moving out, and going through my first semester at sonoma...it's just been wild.
the year started off with me turning 21, and going to vegas with my family and yasir.
met melissa.
saw head automatica with steph and her brother.
went to disneyland with stephanie.
my grandfather passed away.
went back to vegas, and it was even better the second time around with some of my best friends.
moved out of the davis apartment; the end of an era.
lost touch with yasir, but fortunately not grayson and alex.
howard died. =(
got to see mars volta with grayson and saul.
finally got to see tool with grayson.
started my first semester at sonoma...which has been great.
had a good thanksgiving in half boon bay with the family, followed by a great christmast at home.
and then last night--getting to end the year and ring in the new one with some of my best friends.

as i said, 2006 was a really eventful year...i remember feeling completely overloaded at more than one instance. but it was a really good year for me, and i'm glad that i've made it through the year and i'm looking forward to experiencing what will come in 2007, because i think it's going to be even better. i'm so happy that i have a wonderful girlfriend, as well as some great friends that i'm sure will remain by my side for years to come.

life is good. [Nov. 26th, 2006|11:08 am]

yeah, it's treating me well.
this has always been my favorite time of the year.
classes are almost finished...just have to keep in mind i still have 2 weeks left...even though i just wanna sleep and not write any more papers. or study. or write any more fucking poems.
thanksgiving was nice. a bit boring, as usual...but nice.
christmas shopping needs to be done...but money isn't something i have a ton of right now.
speaking of christmas, i'm not really sure i want to come home. living in sonoma is nice. it's made me realize what a shithole stockton is. i couldn't be happier that i left there.
you know, there's a ton of stuff that i could write in here....but i've decided against it, for now.

[Current Music |jay-z - what more can i say]

after about a month of when it seemed like i was constantly on the go, i was planning things for the following days/weeks/hours and drama came by the truckloads and it just seemed like one thing after another....things look like they are now going return to normal. well, at least to more normal than they have been for the past few weeks....things should now fall into place, and the pacing of my life will probably slow down to a speed that i'm more accustomed to.
i'll let you know if that's a good thing or a bad thing yet, because i haven't really decided.
