Blogging

Well. here I am again, updating my blog after a number of months of nothing. I really do want to update more often. If you look back in my history, I think that almost every post that I make after not blogging for a while commits to blogging again more regularly. Anyway…

I haven’t really talked about what it has been like at the new house. We have lived here for a little over a year now and I quite like it. It is conveniently located on the bus route for me to get to work if I need it and the same route goes up to Onalaska and the mall. It has come in handy a number of times since moving in.

New iPad!!!

I know that I haven’t updated this blog very much recently, but I have been so busy. I just got one of the new iPads yesterday and that is actually what I am using to update on right now! Hopefully I will get in the habit of updating this more often, but how many times have you “heard” me say that?!?!?!

Anyway, I will write a more in depth post soon, but I just wanted to post a quick update.

Goals

So I changed my availability at work so I don’t work on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. I think these days are going to be the days that I go to BioLife, which was the original reason for taking that time off, get back to vlogging on YouTube on those days and update my blog here. I need to do some stuff like this and get into some form of routine in my life. Kohl, Alex and I are also going to start this running routine soon. I just need to find the motivation to get up in the morning and do it.

When you are running, all the tips that I have seen online say that you should do it in the morning because you are burning calories and fat from your body and not any meal that you just ate. It also wakes you up, gets the blood pumping and you can take your morning shower afterward and not have to take an additional shower if you run in the evening. I am looking forward to getting back to running. I was feeling good when I was doing it about 6 months ago, but then I ran on a high humidity day and I almost died. That alone made me lose all motivation to run. Now that summer is winding down and fall is coming, it will be a good opportunity to pick it back up. I am not sure what I am going to do in the winter to keep it up. I’ll cross that snowy bridge when I come to it I suppose.

Now off to the People’s Food Co-Op to get these amazing energy bars that I had when Laura was here. They are expensive, but totally worth it!

Changes for the Site!

Again! Well, this time I updated to WordPress 3.0 and with that I changed themes and then changed themes again. I like this one and I have it all configured to work ok at the moment. I hope to add more to this site again (other than twitter updates). Eventually, when I have more time and I am not tired, I will make a post on how Minneapolis Pride was, my iPhone 4 experience and trying to swap roommates and/or move out.

Feeling MUCH better

Well, after having the last few days to rest, I am feeling MUCH better than I have felt in the last few weeks. The time off of work and rest (mostly sleeping in and staying in bed) did wonders for me. I also spent the time cleaning up some files on my computer, organizing music in my iTunes to work better with syncing on my iPhone.

Beth is away visiting her dad in Spokane Washington and she will be back after the weekend. Kohl went to donate plasma and both times that he went it has turned out to be troublesome. The first day he almost passed out because of the guy next to him bleeding all over the place. The second time it was an issue because he wasn’t well enough hydrated. He will be more hydrated next time he goes so he can complete a donation.

Old… Alone… Done for.

From the 2003 Peter Pan Movie:

Captain Hook: She was leaving you, Pan! Your Wendy was leaving you. Why should she stay? What have you to offer? You are incomplete. Let’s take a look into the future, shall we? You fly to Wendy’s nursery and… what’s this? The window’s closed.
Peter: I’ll open it.
Captain Hook: I’m afraid the windows barred.
Peter: I’ll call out her name!
Captain Hook: She can’t hear you.
Peter: No!
Captain Hook: She can’t see you.
Peter: Wendy…!
Captain Hook: She’s forgotten all about you.
Peter: Stop it! Please! Stop it!

Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Forbidden Post

So my last post about things almost went in the completely wrong direction when Chris read it. Just in case it came off that way to others, let me clear it up.

I learned (finally) that I will never (and should never) find a relationship like I had with Danniel. It failed for a reason; it wasn’t right. What I am having with Chris is completely different and so far it is great! He isn’t replacing anyone and I’m not trying to make it into that at all. We are happy together in a completely new and different relationship that is not like anything else.

We are very happy right now and plan to be for the foreseeable future.

On to a new topic; Indiana Jones! So, Chris, Beth and I are going to see this today and I am super excited! I know that I will not be the only one at the theatre this time as Beth is coming with me as is Chris. Plus neither of them would stand me up ;).

Oh, that reminds me – Nicole, Jared’s old best friend started working at Shopko again yesterday and it was a little awkward at first UNTIL Jared came in to do a return and I had to help him at the desk and he mumbled to his mom on the way out that “everyone here hates me”. So it is true; they aren’t friends anymore.

So I approached Nicole and found out the story. Apparently he fucked a couple of other guys over like he did to me! THEN – he fucked Nicole, his most loyal and best friend, over too! What an ass. Oh, and get this – the reason that she didn’t like me other than everything that happened to Kohl? Jared claimed that I practically RAPED him! WTF? Ok, if that was the case, then why did you come back again and THEN start dating me? Asshole.

I learned a lot of lessons here so far and I think it has finally lead me to where I need to be and who I need to be with (everyone, not just Chris).

My Life

ok, well I was born at the Oakland Naval Air Base in Oakland, CA and I almost killed my mom when she had me because she would not stop bleeding. I was the only boy born at the hospital that day and all the others were girls. My mom wanted a girl and the others all wanted boys. She never had a boy name picked out, only girl names because she thought that is what she was having, so when I was born, she had to scrap “Jody Janelle Johnson” for my dad’s middle name Tage Johnson.

My dad left my mom because he didn’t want anymore kids and then she raised me and my two older brothers, Brian and Darin alone.

Garage Life

So, I finally decided to do what I have been wanting to do for a while now – make a garage room! So, I have spent the last 5-6 days doing that. It was a little hard at first considering that I was sick for 2 of the days, had work and other stuff to do as well. But, I am happy to say that I have completed it as much as it will be completed until finances work out a little better (and before Winter ’08 comes).

Doing this did a number of things; first, it made it so Kohl and I had our own separate space which will help in the long run I am certain. Second, it made it so I have a LOT more room. I love having a lot of room and space. Third, it made it so I can be a lazy ass and not have to go up stairs for shit. It also allows me to have “the biggest window in the house” (the garage door) to enjoy the nice weather (when it comes around again), the thunderstorms (that was cool) and the rain (which I have missed).

Before winter arrives (hell, before summer gets into full swing), I will have to build an insulated wall between me and the garage door. There is just too much air that comes through to make it affordable to heat and air condition the room.

Over the last couple of days off, I have caught up on a few things that I had been wanting to do for a while now. First, work for Sonic.net. I have not logged any hours with them for going on two months at this point, and even by my standards, that sucks! Then, I got Photoshop CS3 running on my computer again finally! I was having some strange issue with it not wanting to activate and run correctly. Some Googling and 2 hours later, it was working!

On the personal front, I decided that I want to say single again for a while. Steve was not too happy to hear about this and I don’t really blame him, but like I told him – you have to do what you think is best for you and the rest will fall into place when/if it was meant to.

Kohl and I took Beth to the airport on Wednesday and I spoke with her today and it looks like she is done picking up most of the stuff for her wedding now and she shouldn’t have to make anymore trips to California for a while (THANK GOD!). Now, I just have to wait for her to get back and we can go to Rochester and pick out what I am going to have to wear for her wedding.

Well, I am not sure what else I want to write here at the moment, but I am sure that I will take some more time to update this site as I have time (which I hope to have more of here in the next couple of months).
