LAS VEGAS!!! We'll be leaving in 6 hours! WOOT! I get to see the Amazing Jonathan!! FUCK YEAH!! LET'S DO THIS!
I'M GOING TO FILM SCHOOL!!!! I GOT ACCEPTED!! HOORAY!! I know that it's open enrollment, but I was mostly just worried that they wouldn't have space available. But now I can honestly say, that as of March 6th, 2006, I will offically be a film student at NYFA!! I'm grinning from ear-to-ear, and I feel so great!!

So... Last night while I was making a deposit at the ATM, I ran into My ex's mom. That was a little akward... She was really nice though. She said she heard I was getting married. Weird... Maybe she just spotted my ring and thought she should find out for sure. I'm not getting married. I love Alyssa and all, but we're not gonna do that, cause we know it would kill our relationship. Nothing wrong with marriage, it just wouldn't work for us...not yet anyway. After college is a different story. Well, anyway, it was a suprise to see her, but I guess it's better than running into Kati herself. Yikes, that would be interesting, eh?

How busy will I be? 7 days a week from 9-6 (sometimes longer), I'll be at this school. After 4 months I get a week off though, then it's back for another 4 months. I can't wait. Seriously, I really can't...

I feel sick...

Going off to film school in 2006. Not sure if I'm going to start in January or March, but either way I'll be busy.

It's been a long day, it's been a long week, it's been a long life. Things are going well. Been in the new place for a couple of months now. No major problems, Just Will, Alyssa, and I (and often times Matt a Cat) getting along just fine. It's been as close to ideal as it can be with the 3 of us. Last month money was a little tight. Hmmm...turns out Alyssa and I aren't loaded like some people have assumed in the past...
Katie, I'm glad I haven't met any of your recent romantic interests, because they'd probably just end up asking me to lend them money, and expect me to say yes because they assume I have tons of the stuff, Just kidding.
I want this semester to end. Not because I'm sick of school. I'm actually enjoying my classes, but the end of the year is very stressful for me, and I hate getting all stressed out. Just ask my ex, I don't handle stress very well. I'm getting better though. A lot of that's Alyssa. She really is the best I could hope for. What can I say?? I love her. She's the stable part of my life. She's helped me get back into school, get out on my own, and get a good job. I'm a lot better with money than I used to be. It's a good thing I don't have any addictions, or I'd be so broke. I did start buying manga though. It's kinda like reading. Anyway, I want this semester to end, mostly so that I can have time off during the week. I mean, complete time off. Which is what I'm going to have, because I'm going to continue to work mainly just weekends this summer. That means I can spend more time on my drawing, my music, and my writing. I may even be able to finish that patio set for Alyssa. There's a lot of things I want to get into, and I'm going to enjoy having some time to explore all of those options. I love being able to live off of working on weekends alone, but at the same time, I have to wonder if I deserve such a high-paying job. I think someone like Will, or Alyssa deserves my pay, and I deserve theirs. They both work more than twice as many hours as I do, and get about the same pay. I swear the only reason I get as much as I do is because I work on base, for the amount of work I do, I should be getting $10 an hour, and that's figuring in the know-how that is required for the job, which is a fair amount. Will might be getting a new job soon making a whole bunch more, and Alyssa's pretty happy where she's at. I want her to move up to management and get her own store, but she doesn't want to work that many hours while still going to school full-time. Otherwise she'd be all for it as well. Alyssa should be getting her new car this month. Can't wait for that. Although, it has been rumored that it is a step down from her Kia. I'm gonna have to disagree on that one, but everyone is entiteled to their opinion. I feel like making another movie. No matter how much of a pain the last one was to shoot sometimes, I loved it, and I want to do it all over again. I'll have to bug Mr. "Show Me the Money" himself. Hey, he is just down the street now. That's what I love about living in Mission Oaks. I'm closer to a lot of my friends. Although, I am further from Dick, Valerie, and Josh. But Josh's girlfriend is right by here anyway. In case anyone is wondering, Dick and Valerie are still doing good, and yeah, it's true that Dick is impossible to get a hold of, and even more impossible to hang out with, but he was before too. The difference now is that you can actually hang out with him, if you invite Valerie too, which I don't have a problem with. Yeah, they're attached at the hip, but what do you expect? They're married. At least he didn't move across country for a chick like Will, (sorry buddy). I'm happy for them. Besides, I heard Valerie's pretty funny when you get her a little liquered up...
Well, that's it. Good night. I need sleep.

It's a good thing I have Alyssa and Will here, or I'd be horribly depressed all the time. People are lame. In other news: my dingo bit my parents neighbor. She's a really nice lady so she's cool with it, but apparently he almost bit her finger clean off. I think my mom was exaggerating a bit though. She was the only one who saw it though. Her Chris (neighbor) and Dingo Dave are the only ones who really know for sure. Taking him to a behaviorist on Saturday before work. Poor guy, I wish I was there. He might not have done it if I was there. He's too skittish. but that's part of the reason I like him so much. He's paranoid, just like me, and he doesn't want to trust strangers, but the people he really cares about he trusts without question. He's a bastard when you try to push him off the couch though.

And so we weep once again fo the struggle of the car salesman...
Alright, that's enough of that. Alyssa's getting a car. It's gonna be brand friggin new! She's having it made specially for her starting next month. It's not an Acura though, as we originally planned on getting. There were a few problems with the TL.
#1) Because we were looking at the previous body style, we were also looking for the S-type, which is apparently very difficult to get exactly how you want it because they don't stay at the dealership very long when they do get them in.
#2) It would have to be used because the new ones are a little too expensive, so it wouldn't have a full warranty.
#3) The resale value of the TL is apparently pretty bad seeing as how the previous body style which is only 2 years old, is going for
$10,000 less than a new one, which is nice for buying, but we don't want to be in the same situation as we are now with the Kia.
#4) The dealership felt like a dealership. The salesman we dealt with was using all his tricks to get us to stick around, consider what
what few options they did have, and then once we decided to leave, he did his best to convince us that he was working on a solution
for us, and that we should check back in with him next week. I was suprised that he went to such lengths for us, but then again, it
#5) The older body style is not nearly as nice as the new one, and the new one is just to popular.
#6) We could have gotten exactly what we wanted if we were willing to take one with White ext. and black int. This is no ordinary black
interior. It was the finer kind of leather, that tends to really pick up on polish, and just shines like a friggin mirror, but on
top of that it was absolutely JET BLACK! Not like most black leather you see that's almost black but not quite. This was black.
#7) The Mini dealership right next door was a thousand times nicer. In fact, I even felt rude a couple of times for being suspicious of
just about everything they said, to the point of being rude, and they were nothing but kind and honest to me. Well, I guess the
best way to say sorry is to buy a car. Which is what she's gonna do.
I have to say the Mini is pretty bad ass. I've always kinda thought that, but never actually drove one until now. She's getting it in black, with a white top, and automatic tranny, heated seats, etc. It's nice. Oh, and it's not the standard one. It's the S. I was actually going to try to drive the manual one they had after we drove the auto, but the auto was supprisingly capable. It has the sequential auto shifter like my mom's audi has, plus it's got paddle shifters. PADDLE SHIFTERS!! I was using those, and it was just cool. Alyssa just usede the straight up auto, and to my amazement, the thing actually liked staying in gear. It didn't upshift constantly to improve mileage. Instead it stayed in gear so you wouldn't have to deal with any lag when you need to step on it. It did have a little bit of lag in the lower rpm's but I don't think I'll have any problem keeping it in it's proper gear. Oh, and Alyssa and I decided she should order the special 2-seater edition, where the rear seats are permanently folded down. So no back seat. Sorry!!

Drugs are lame, and so are the people who do them.
