Tonight was nice. Skated Adren, relaxed and also:
Some very exciting things happened tonight!
1. I installed word press on my website…so easy to do!!!!!!!
It’s basically a blog, but the URL will be off of skatede, so it’s really easy to manager. I’ve got a lot of learning to do, but I’m up for it. http://skatede.com/home/
2. I found this site called http://www.northwestskater.com/
This guy went all over the USA & took pictures of skateparks, and identified them with google maps. I emailed him to use some pictures from his site and he said go for it.
3. The lady from AHS sent me the FTP credentials! 1st commercial web site in the bag :)

I'm so ready for Sunday, my day off! Looking forward to Valley Garden tmw.

So today was very busy at work, but a rather effective day. I got a lot done, a lot came up which I handled. Still more to come. I have to ride down to Dover on Wednesday to take notes for a meeting...which sucks. I have a final project due Thursday, which means I might have to buckle down and do that tomorrow. It's whatever, you gotta do what you gotta do.
Today after work I went skating with Jared and Matt. We hit up Chi which was a lot of fun. I was skating really well. Guess if you don't do something for a while and then come back you have fresh eyes to see it. I havn't been there in a few weeks and I landed a disaster for the first time and a fake ollie to axle. Not to mention I beat Matt in skate.
Someone I've talked to informed me that there is indeed a Skate Park in Milford. I've heard rumors from online sources about it, but no one has ever confirmed this. Now I have to make it down there to get pictures for my site! He did say they check wavers though.
So Wednesday, I should have the money in my account to the book the vacation to Florida! How exciting.
Well, I gotta go. My poor dog Lucy ran away...for the millionth time! Current Mood: cheerful

Life! It can be so wonderful and so daunting at different times. I'm the kind of person who likes to find solutions and hates not being able to come up with said solutions. I guess I'm talking about work and how hard it sometimes is to complete everything. I shouldn't complain since I get paid well, yet it is a lot and the quality of the work is hard.
I had a really good weekend. Friday, I went to a coworker's pool party, got half way drunk then seen Year One with Jackie. Saturday was the best day of my weekend. I woke up really late, added a new java script navigation bar to my website, skated newport park with Jon and Todd, then seen The Hangover with Jackie. That movie was hilarious! After that we came to my house and built my book shelf. I mostly watched, but I did screw in the screws. Yadda yadda yadda, we wake up around 1 in the morning.
Today was National Go Skateboarding Day, so I went the to event in Wilmington. It was so croweded, I didn't skate. But me and Dame did hit up some spots which was fun. I'm working on a new video part, thus far I have about a minute and half of footage which is a lot.
August Jackie and I are going to Disney World! I've never been so I'm pretty hyped. We're gonna stay 4 nights, so it should be the trip of a life time. Then, we're seeing Blink 182 with a bunch of peoples (3 of whom still owe me money for their tix).
Next month Bryan is getting married, so I'll be doing that business. Hopefully, it'll be fun. We'll see. Work tmw and I'm not all that excited. I have tons of stuff to do, so I may be staying a little late. We shall see. Current Mood: nervous

I can feel work coming back. I woke up from a peaceful sleep and for the past hour or so, I’ve been laying awake thinking about all the people and situations I will encounter at work. I imagined my boss asking me why do I work? I would answer, because the position was open and I want money. Now, however, I like making a difference in people’s lives by providing students with excellent customer service.
I want a house. It is very exciting to think about owning one if three years. Current Mood: awake
This vacation has been very relaxing. I spent much of it with Jackie. Most of the nights we stayed up together until 4:00am - some nights just talking, other nights playing. That was nice.
I got a lot of nice things for Christmas. Jackie painted me a new picture of a beach with a short poem attached to it. I really thought it was good and hung that up. She also made me a special CD with naughty pictures of herself (DROOLS). She also got me sweatpants and the movie I wanted- the Dark Knight. My mother got me a very warm new jacket, fancy new dress shoes, 2 new pairs of jeans, a belt hanger, a new sweater, new sweat pants...and a GPS! But so did Jackie's mom lol. Aunt Sandy got me a football and my other Aunt Cindy got me the card game Uno. I had a great Christmas, it was alot of fun.
Trying to readjust to waking up early is difficult. I know, I know, you poor baby, having to readjust after having off of work for two weeks. I am excited to going back for one thing in particular: Jackie is going to be at my school and she applied for a receptionist position. How exciting!
Well, it's the weekend now and the last two days of my vacation. I want to go bowling with a big group of people. I havn't done that in a long time and that is always alot of fun. Until the next year when I choose to update. Peace
PS - I recommend you read the book - 7 habits of highly effective people by Stephen Covey.

|I'm feeling this
Thus far my Christmas Vacation has been wonderful.
Woke up after only 4.5 hrs. of sleep and visited Jackie. Similarly, she woke up after hardly sleeping too, but we found a way to keep each other awake...
So, around the time she had to pick Kim up, we went out to the mall - once again. Probably the last time before xmas, we're both done shopping. I still have to finish the gift i am making Jackie, but I will have it done fo sho. I cant wait to be a little older and move in with her. Sometimes i forget that im not a teenager anymore.
i figured out why i like video games so darn much. they are a challenge and i like challenges. My tragic flaw is i am a perfectionist so i have to play them to I get every special item even if it means putting in a really large number hours. Looks like me and Snake are bunk buddies lol..
It is the most wonderful time of the year. Im pretty amped for xmas. Jackie painted me something and make a CD and im sure she will blow my mind with other gifts. I have a few tricks up my sleeves too though! Current Mood: accomplished

Lies are like love in that it is hard to count the all the ways it can be used. We are deceivers at times, sometimes for other's feelings, sometimes for our own benefit. Brooke is 5 and sometimes I feel bad for her. I can aready tell she is going to a strong adult. Although she loves playing with other people, she is adjusted to people not having time/energy to play with her. Today the Thanksgiving card she made me was in the trash and she was so hurt. It fell in honestly, but for some reason I knew she thought I was lying.
It's my Christmas vacation and I am very happy about that. I love Jackie

its almost the weekend and im very excited. Its been a long week, long month. Soon i get off of work for 16 days. Sometimes you just need more time to do all the things you want.
I love Jackie Current Mood: sleepy

Relationships have their ups and downs. Now we're in a high. Three days ago, we were in a lull. I'd like to write about how wonderful it is right now. Today, Jackie wore a outfit she doesn't normally wear and I loved it. It is amazing how little things spice things up. We made up from our fight Wednesday night by just loving each other. We talked until late that night. I'm really happy with everything in our relationship, so i figured I'd let it be known.
Working full time at my school is great. Good pay, good people, long holiday breaks and every Friday off during the Summer. Not to mention, a big Christmas bonus check. I've got a plan in place to buy a house in approx. 3 years, maybe less. Living at home is great as far as being able to save alot each month, but its not so great when you want to be alone with someone and you cant. It will be worth it though, to own our own home and always having the opportunity to do whatever the heart fancies. I'm working on building my credit history now, so if all goes according to plan I'll be a homeowner in three years.
It's almost New Years. Come Christmas, I have 16 days off! WOW. That's exciting, thank you Wilmu. Then, in the Spring semester Jackie will be going to wilmu. We're going to take a course together. I cant wait to study together. It should be fun, I think she'll like the small school atmosphere.
Happy Thanksgiving All!
PS Jackie - I hope your heartburn goes away soon Current Mood: happy

Eternal Life. Imagine there was a fountain of youth: one who drinks stops aging; death becomes impossible. Would that be a curse or a blessing. Certainly, it would be novel in the beginning, but would it grow boring? What age would you drink from the fountain at- what age would you want to be forever
If I were to be one age forever it would be between 20 - 25. Of course, problems would occur. People would eventually notice that I was not aging. If I were to live forever, I would definitely want Jackie to live forever with me. How terrible would it be to live forever and watch every single friend you make wither away.
Would it really be wonderful? Again, this is a forever thing - you wouldn't be able to die, like an "angel." Eventually, would it get tedious? I do not have the answers.
I think it would be cool, but I couldn't imagine living forever, living to a hundred, a thousand, a million!
I am re-reading a book I read in 4th grade, Tuck Everlasting. It's thought provoking... Current Mood: happy

I feel like more and more I'm losing the ability to express myself. I have so much I want to tell her but she isnt ever in the mood to listen anymore. It seems like forever since we've been close. In the end, that's all you really want. The rest is just added features. It's really sad when she rolls her eyes and dismisses things I say. Its not fair to interpret things one way without considering my individual perspective. She doesnt understand me and I her - all because we never talk...it's very frustrating.
The truth is, she has been feeling bad lately because of her dad. She is so distant because she is sad. Grieving is a long process...
I hate not being able to make her happy. It drives me crazy I'm helpless to change this. That's why I want to talk because at least some of our issues are solvable if we work them out together
. Almost everything can be worked out through talking if you take long enough. I have a lot in my mind that I want to share and be understood. Assumptions are often wrong - the only reason to learn the truth is by asking it. It's annoying not be allowed to express your true feelings. Being punished for being yourself is not a path to happiness.

|Come up to meet you...tell you I'm Sorry
I'm Full-time now...I'm the iTAC secretary. I make alot of money, I think I should be able to move out and buy a house by the time I'm 25. So now I get free school! I'll graduate with no debt and a nice savings account as long as I dont get fired. School has been challenging me lately. The amount of time and effort is the same as it has always been; however, there's just too little time in the day. I need to start my paper which is due tomorrow.

wonderful bday. more elaborate update later!

|One more time
I feel like I can only handle one thing at a time. Right now, I need to start and finish my 1=2 page ethical analysis paer for ethics in behaviorl science class which i have tomorow night after work at five thirty. Tomorrow, on my birthday, i work from eight thirty to four thirty and wont get out of class until nine thirty. Kyle said i just should call out and not go to school. Idk, my mom is having david come up so we can celebrate our days on different days since i'll be busy all day. friday is when i suppose i will celebrate mine's. Jackie and bill both mentioned that we should do something on friday. I want to feel happy.
my interview went very well today. Everything thnks so. I am def. a prime candidate...i dont like micky for some odd reason. glad he wont be my boss for long. im worried HR will research me and learn that. That kind of thng does happen.
I wore a blaxer today. Wore my blakc and red suit. Looking sharp. I'd like to get it-alot of money. Hell it would be a dream. Id learn alot and advance my life. Im really not sure if i'll get it. My fingers are crossed.
They say perfectionists procrastinate since they fear failure. so true. so true. Im sad i think. Sad i wont have a nice birthday. its not really fair. I like my job, but still. Its all good though- gotta do what you gotta do. Current Mood: worried

|Until the day I die, I spill my heart for you
I think the key to happiness is being true to yourself. "Authenticity"
Today, I felt authentic. I wore my red power shirt. All day, I felt confident and happy. It seems to me that confident people are happy people. I loved my job today. Everyone knows it's a big challenge and I feel up to it. TWO people used to check the 6 divisions, now one person, me, does it all. Plus, I send them out myself which Dawn used to handle. So technically, I'm doing 3 people's work and thus far succeeding. That's a good feeling.

Ever play Kings? Ever get naked while playing Kings? I have.
My work is getting harder. I like the challenge so far though. It is my belief that people think getting a college degree will change their life. Some say a degree can open up doorways not previously open; however, some are bitter and angered for wasting thousands of dollars to graduate and not find a job in the field of their degree. I got a face book now. It's alot of fun compare to myspace.
Jackie and I finally gave into temptation. It was fantastic (for me). Such a fun and romantic week we spent together. I miss it...there is always next year to look forward to!
I like drinking to have fun, but I hate drinking with people who won't let me be who I want to be. I feel restricted and can't have a good time.
Jackie painted me this picture of two swans in a dark lake with their necks forming a Heart. It is my favourite. It's really really good. It always makes me smile and think of what she said about Swans mating for life. It's a happy thought. Jackie really is the person I want to spend my life with. She is right, we balance each other out. On our walk last night she said she likes that I'm older because I can help guide her with my experience. I was suprised she said that but I was glad. She challenges me to do things I wouldn't normally do like go travel and spend the night over someone else's house. Besides Jackie, the last time I spent the night over someone else's house was NEVER. I think we keep each other mature and silly.
Today we had a water balloon fight. She wore a grey camii since I wore the white shirt. Needless to say it was a fun fight.
On our walk last night, we talked about how soon I'll be twenty one. In basically a year from now. Time goes so fast! I want to get smashed and sing at a Karaokee bar. At this rate, I still have 3 years of school left. Jeezus.
The one thing that makes Jackie so different than any other person I know is that she is so amazing. She makes me gifts from the heart and writes me sweet letters. She does anything I want her to do to make me happy. She gave me twenty dollars in ones the other day because she felt I deserved it for always buying her stuff. She wears outfits she feels uncomfortable in because I love when she wears them. She has a HUGE heart and I'm grateful to have her in my life. Ever since We've been together, my life has been more exciting. Thanks Legs Current Mood: chipper

|This is the first day of my life
Last night was Jackie's big party. Yes, Everything went according to plan (WOOT WOOT). I got drunk probably first out of every one, but everyone loves me when I'm drunk I'm told. There was a huge turnout. Big text me that he seriously had a great time, that it was truly the "teen party experience." We spiked a water melon. I played beer pong way too many times. Won a few games, talked alot of smack. So after the party, some of us go to TJ's at like 2. We don't get back til 4 and Jackie and I lay in our underwear on her tiny bed for 2 hours before we mananged to fall asleep. Big butt jokes aside- Jackie, your butt took up the ENTIRE bed. When Jackie's friends staying over went home at 8, I gave Jackie a massage and she's been out like a light ever since.
But the real reason I'm typing this is because today is the day I've been wishing and wanting and waiting for for a long time. Yes, we're moving on to that next step and I am oh so excited. We got the house to ourselves and we're both ready, It's going to be lovely and sweet. For such a special day, I feel normal. When I think about it I get excited, but that also might be the lack of sleep talking.
PS Jackie, I LOVE YOU TIL THE END Current Mood: excited

|Thanks for the memories
Wednesday, after work I rode down to the beach with Jason. At first I was not thrilled with going down to a house with people I didn’t know. But a game or 3 of beer pong fixed that. I had so much fun. All of Jackie’s friends think I’m funny when I’m drunk now. Jackie played her first game of beer pong with me as her partner and we beat Will (the FORMER champion) and Kayleigh. So that was a lot of fun. I mingled with everyone the whole night and got to know everyone there. The best part was actually getting my own room with Jackie to sleep in, but those details must stay secret. For video footage click this link: www.greatnight/lovers/adam+jackie.com
SIKE…we didn’t make a porn yet lol. The morning was nice except for the phone call with my mother. She plans on divorcing my dad when she gets enough money. Now the camera on my phone doesn’t work. That’s life. I’ve been in a good mood all day. Jackie really knows how to take care of me. Now that she drinks too she doesn’t get mad; instead she babies me: tres sweeti. She also bought me the boondocks season 1 on DVD! So she comes back tomorrow and hopefully I will get to play. Current Mood: happy
