A Happy Birthday!

Today I would like to wish my best friend Siera a happy 21st birthday. Siera and I met up at FU. I was a year ahead of her and she was an incoming freshman. We had said hello in a halls a few times but I got to know her a little more due to my roommate Chris. He was hitting on this other girl at the time who was close to Siera so that’s how we got to know each other a little more. Over the school year we learned more about each other and really connected over rugby. We talked quite a bit and just began to trust each other when ever we needed to vent or needed help. Many of times I had to help her out with car issues or getting around but it was always a pleasure be cause she is one of those rare awesome people. She is my best friend and I support everything she does and believes in. There are times when it feels like she is pissed at me but I truly care a lot about her and want to make sure she is ok and happy. I want to try and help her in any way I can and even thought she is always busy with hockey and becoming a nurse, I will always have her back and she has mine. She has given me a lot of blunt and forward advise which I need a lot of times and I always respect anything she says. There are times I wish we were closer and being miles apart doesn’t help. I do want her to move to DC and work here for a while and I look forward to a few future trips with her to have fun and enjoy ourselves. Anyways she is one of my few friends and fewer best friends and I would do anything for her and just hope she has a wonderful and enjoyable birthday today!!!

Alcoholism is the cyclic presence of tolerance, withdrawal, and excessive alcohol use; the drinker’s inability to control such compulsive drinking, despite awareness of its harm to his or her health, indicates that the person might be an alcoholic. Also normally noticed after several days of binge drinking (5 or more drinks at a time)…

I give the definition of an alcoholic because certain persons including my soccer coach. Since he accuses me of being a drunk due to lies and rumors from certain teammates that want to see me gone they have kicked me off the soccer team. I am honestly pissed and disgusted that for one I didnt even get to explain my side of it let alone even really speak face to face; I just got a shitty phone call.

My side of the story: They claim I was drunk the night before practice and that is why I did not show. -The truth is I was at home went to b e early and then took several team mates to get physicals including myself. Then the second practice of the day I was having a reoccurrence of a very disturbing flashback…

It blows my mind that a soccer coach would listen to one person who has no proof and would take his side. It makes me curse their name and want to really not want to play soccer. O and to top it off the dumbass teammate is the biggest pot head ever and has been seen high since practices started.

Some people need to mind their own business and others need to learn to get the whole story and that proof is out there if one asks others.

Mock Rock 2011

So today we had some grand performances at Mock Rock 2011. Some very creative routines this year and we also could not have them in the Finlandia Cafe this yea since they began remodeling so instead it took place in Warge 303. Personally I thought the order of awards should have been different and I know many people agree with me but just like last year this was an upset. I believe that First place should have gone to Joray, G and Drew, Second place to GB and Darryl, third place to Brooke, Alyssa, and Shakira, Fourth place to Spencer, Hailey, and Dawn, Fifth place to Chris, and finally Hailey and Vanessa should have gotten last place since theirs was the worst and personally made me wana puke. Otherwise it was a fun night and wish a few other people did one. I personally wanted to get a group to do Backstreet Boys ‘Everybody’ or ‘Bye Bye Bye’ by N’sync… haha would have been glorious. o well. Here are the performances in order of appearance along with the awards. ENJOY!

its all about the little things

Recently a few of my friends (Danielle, Kelsey, and Brooke) have been coming over and hanging out with me watching the Big Bang Theory. If anything this has cheered me up alot and means alot to me. I didnt really have many friends or people to hang out with growing up. Only at TC did I meet Naeroby, Ahmed, and Antonio and actually get out and have some fun. I dont get to see or hang out with them much anymore with them being in other states and always working. At Apple I hung out with Ben and Kyle but i dont really keep in touch with them anymore. Here at Finlandia for the first year I hung out with Timmy, Zach, Steve, and Fons. They introduced me to alot of people at Finlandia and we had plenty of fun playing soccer but now they are not here anymore.

So as for these these 3 lovely women, their company means alot and really cheers me up for the fact that they want to hang out and get to know me. I have been happy with their company in the past few days with every problem and piece of hard-ache that has been happening. These  three women are awesome to hang out with and to get to know (altho at time the sex talk and the shit bout boys does get um weird…)

Ahhh what a great weekend… the boys where back in town. Steve, Fons, and Zach from the soccer team last year decied to surprise everyone and boy was it awesome to have my friends back. People this year have changed and not for the better so it was great to party with them and draw on Carlye again! no matter how far you are from your friends they will be your friends!

The guys kept on talking about how big Carlye’s boobs got bigger, how they ran over a deer on the way up, how skinny Moose was now, and then how much they miss it here. Dawn was super excited that we all chilled and were hanging out like the old days. We drove out to Ontonagon and met Zach’s grandmother and grandfather. They have a nice little cabin but little cold and windy. If anything the guys just had to miss the 60 degree weather from just a few days before and came up when it was 13 degrees out and windy. We enjoyed ourselves and I am definitely going down for spring break to hang out with them since there isnt really any guys for me to chill with here at school. All in all great time and Thank you dawn for some of the pics!

Wow so I forgot how many thieves, snitches, and trolls there are at the dorms. Thanks to them things have to change by whom I tell what to and when certain info is passed out. If I ever find name I will confront you. O and ps I am tired of all of these two faced games and lieing going around to me as well. Just stop; dont waste your time or energy because it will only make you look like a fool and the bitch at then end.

This is the Soccer House. My new home and place to keep clean. Atleast there is no more dorm drama… now i can have some parties and have people over for some fun! I have the house set up with Airtunes and can be controlled via my iPhone. Otherwise I have servers storing my music and movies while I have accounts on my laptop for my roommates use and access. But I like that for the most part it is nice, clean and organized for the most part.

Day 1

So today was the First Day of classes and it wasnt to bad. Classes seem like a good challenge and with me really making this my main focus things will turn out for the best.  I wish a few things where different and like a few things are bugging me like alot of the freshman but some arent that bad and I have made a few new friends. I am glad that there are people here that I can trust and talk to and for the most part chill with. But my plan is to be the hermit… be the nerd… and let people ask the questions and come to me.

Life will work out and yea there has been some drama and things that I wish didnt just happen but those have been cut off and I know a few people would be proud but I do want to have some friends to always chill with and have them introduce me to others since lot of these freshmen are like o he is the 23 year old guy… haha. There is however one girl on my mind but thats another story and as for now I am in school to study have fun and meet new people cuz you never know…

Just a few more days….

So its just a few more days till I leave for school and I am packed but have a few issues to take care of. Doris is still broke and need to make sure that she is fixed before I leave otherwise we will have to find another way. I really cant wait to get to school, Chris Airriess is going to be my roommate at FU. Its pretty fucking kool and I cant wait to move in and chill with everyone. Also Laura Fräntilä is arriving today from Finland and I cant wait to show her DC and let her go on her shopping spree… (no i am not a gay shopping buddy! just saying!) So anyways everything is being rushed and we will soon see what happens in the next 48 hours.

Finlandia here I come!

Its 0230 hrs in DC… I am siting at my iMac thing about life and where I let things lead. Yesterday I found out at FU (Finlandia University) that I will not be getting the single room I paid for and instead I will have a roommate. Now I understand people are confused and think I am acting weird cuz I will have a roomie but I dunno how I feel about this. The guy might be a good kid or not… I have been screwed many times and I was looking forward to having my personal space. I guess tomorrow he will call back and we can work things out… I really hope so.
