|Dexter is AWESOME!!!!!
Man, I just got done watching the first two episodes of the new season of Dexter, and I gotta tell ya its mind blowing. If you don't know what Dexter is, it is a series on Showtime based on the books by the author Jeff Lindsay titled Darkly Dreaming Dexter. The first season is based on the first book and the second season is completely original and in no way follows the second novel, Dearly Devoted Dexter. I am currently reading the books and they are awesome but I came home today and my mom offered to give me the first two episodes of the second season and man oh man. Did it blow my mind. The whole time it just sucked me in. Its my favorite tv show of all time. You never know whats coming and you can never second guess it and you're always there with the main character Dexter. Its almost as if you can feel the feelings he conveys in the show. The plot flows around Dexter, who experienced a traumatic event in his early childhood, and he learns to cope with the way the event changed him with the help of his cop foster father. He channels his need to kill by killing only serial killers. The killers that slip through the fingers of law enforcement and require elimination. I highly recommend it. I have often raved about House but I am convinced now that while House is an amazing show it is in no way close to the amazing piece of television art that is Dexter. House is just funny and while he drags me to the edge of my relaxation device (aka chair, because its a rather vague relation to relaxation device) he doesn't require me to stand up and cheer or suck me into the story so completely to the point where I lose sleep to watch the episodes even though I need to get up in 6 hours to get to work on time. If you get the chance to watch this amazing show, TAKE IT!!! You won't regret it. I'll even give you the first season if you request it of me. This amazing show is a must see for anyone who has ever loved a tv show or a movie.
In other news, I recently heard about a relatively new branch of psychology that is very fascinating. Its called positive psychology which targets the different traits and actions that enhance the quality of life for yourself and those around you. Its interesting to me that it mainly targets virtues that a lot of religions support and enforce. My own religion as well as others. Its definitely something I want to learn more about. From my take on it, this psychology supports the existence of God (for us christians) or a higher being (for those of you who don't share my beliefs) because of this connection between a largely proven theory and the virtues that these religions encourage. A class at Harvard, which started as a class of 7 to 8 people, has grown into a group of classes which more than 900 students have signed up for and the rate of the class is growing. Students who take the class have testified that their quality of life has improved because of it as well as the quality of the life of those around them. This is the part that I talked about when I said "largely proven." And its pretty much common sense that some form of positive human interaction and human thought can lead you to become a more optimistic person. If you sit in your room and dwell on negative things then your thoughts and actions will generally drift toward negative things and vice versa. It has also shown that meditation (which in our day and age can be called "sitting in your room and thinking about stuff") can balance your thoughts and your moods. Maybe I just find this way to interesting or maybe I'm excited about positive breakthroughs. Whichever one I think its awesome that we are slowly figuring out how to help each other without using drugs to steady moods and burst of energy. Allowing people to be themselves and fix themselves without altering their mindset or thought process.
As far as college is concerned, Perimeter now to get some more credits. Then Valdosta or Southern Polytechnical University. But more than likely Valdosta. Current Mood: cheerful

|Chapters of Life.
Its seems that my life is divided in chapters that dictate not only the events in my life, but that ideas that I form and the moods that I find myself trapped in. Ever since high school ended, which was the High School chapter btw lol) I have been in a constant easy life style. I was optimistic and enjoyed what life had to offer. I was easy going and went from a crappy two year college to a decent four year college. Life was looking up. But sadly, because it was looking up it didn't see that wall it slammed into around the end of last fall semester. Life steadily disintegrate around me. I lost my whole world. This was a very sad break down. College became a far off reality, no good job in sight, friends scarce, and love got tired of me. I knew the last one was an end I knew was coming. So its impact wasn't AS crippling as the first time love was a childish and immature illusion. So I sustained minimal damage but it was enough to leave me with nothing. Then I got a po-dunk job that barely gives me any cash flow and I still have to rely on my parents.
That was a chapter that dictated the rise and fall of Jared's content and easy-going lifestyle. I heard from somewhere that praying that God would never allow life to be easy was a good idea or might keep the person who prayed it would never loose the value of the things they earn. I'm not sure why someone would ask for something that is already there. Asking for something thats already there seems to be a little redundant. Life was never meant to be a basket of roses where everything looks and smells beautiful and has had all the thorns removed. I was thinking about that at work today and I realized that the only logical thing to do after falling over is to get back up and try again. Even though try #2
isn't going to be any easier than try #1
and each try after. Life is hard regardless of how many prayers you pray or how many falls you take. Its never an easy, completely enjoyable experience.
So the next chapter of Jared's life can be easily explained by using a Jedi as an example. Forgive me the nerdy reference, but I assure you it has a meaning. The history of the Jedi is a long one with many falls in which the Sith conquers the galaxy and the Jedi become virtually non-existent, but as years progress the Sith destroys it's own empire and the Jedi come back from the brink of disaster. This part of my life is the end of the Sith and the rise of the Jedi. Even though growing discontent in the future coupled with nasty events and inner moral confusion with the world surrounding them will throw the Jedi apart to opposite ends of the galaxy, I'll still get up and try again. Perimeter for a year and then to Georgia Tech hopefully. My College GPA is more than adequate to get in. I just need about 5 to 10 more semester credits. Though getting all my math classes out of the way at Perimeter would help me avoid the difficult math at Georgia Tech. Hence the year period at Perimeter. This will also give me time to upgrade my computer. Hopefully this fresh start will see the Jedi through to a long and mildly content span of time. Even though a Sith conquest is unavoidable. May the Force be with me.
I also find myself to be in a very unfeeling state. I don't really get depressed or happy anymore. I just operate. I'm slowly freezing I guess you can say. Its not intentional. It just started happening the other day. Things just stopped worrying me and I started thinking about random stuff and reading Star Wars Comics.
I want to be a Wookie Jedi like Chewbacca's nephew Lobacca or the Wookie Jedi Master Tyvokka.

|Relient K Concert Extravaganza!
I'll tell you that I am absolutely certain I have never been to such an amazing concert in my life. My face fell off half way through and I hand to scramble on the floor to find it. Thats how hard we rocked. mae was Amaezing! and Relient K was spellbinding. Sherwood did really well also. Sadie Hawkins Dance and I So Hate Consequences rocked the whole house so much. The entire place was jumping and singing at the top of their lungs. Life won't get any better than it did last night.

The best thing about having a job is the ability to get out or the house and meeting people. Some of the people you meet are worth knowing and are cool people in general. Then there are the people that ruin your day or the day of a co-worker. They are spiteful, mean, and selfish people who think only of themselves and their experiences. They have their reasons for being that way but they aren't good enough to to be mean to other people. Being with other people than just my family and those few friends I hang out with is awesome but a variety of people and the prospect of meeting new people makes things interesting. Being with other people also has its negative side. With what I stated before it also makes me realize that people cling to hatred like a retired KKK leader. People backstab and call each other names and worry only of themselves. It makes me sad that I'm apart of a race of people who can't get rid of their own hatred for one another. Forgiveness is forgotten and the grudge takes hold like a disease that consumes the soul. Thats life though and the only thing you can do is try and be that one person who picks up the slack. Sure you can't do it yourself but at least its a start. As far as I go I need to correct some mistakes in who I am. These mistakes will take some work but if it will make me a better person in the end it will be well worth it. Sometimes you have the chance to help others become better people but most of the time you have to take care of your own faults before you can start helping others with theirs. I think thats why some people may call me cold or heartless, because I see how people act and say something about it. I'm not trying to be mean, but if you act like a jerk, talk like a jerk, and walk like a jerk then what are you? A kind and caring wonderful individual who is out for everyone's well being? Not in the slightest. Work made me see all these things about people and ultimately about myself. Thats why I think interaction with new people and new places is important. It expands your horizons and teaches you new things about the world and yourself. So its a bittersweet experience re-joining the work force. It will ultimately pay off as far as the money aspect goes as well so thats always a plus.
I need to play more video games. And read more books. And watch more movies. May 25th is Pirates day.

|I saw old friends at Waffle House
Today I ran into Tilei, Andy, Sam, and Brent at Waffle House at about 1:30 in the morning. It was awesome. I pelted Andy with quarters and ate some of his pie. Which means I kissed Andy in a round about way and since Tilei and Andy are dating it means I have kissed Tilei as well. I never thought chocolate pie could get better. Well I'm here to tell you my friends, it just did.
I was at Waffle House because I was enjoying a late night meal with my co-worker Seth. He was really hungry and I as as well so we decided to grab a bite at Waffle House. I found many things out about Seth like parties and past relationships. I also found out, from Tilei, that if you have ever eaten at McDonalds you have eaten Kangaroo and if you have had the ice cream you had Elephant milk. Which makes me feel like McDonalds is an exotic place with many foods from different countries, when really its different animals from different countries. Nevertheless its still good. It might make me eat their more. No one like Australia, f'in Kangaroos.

|I found this interesting.
The subject of this post won't interest most people but it interests me immensely. So I'm posting it to my LJ and in facebook as a note. It was a tad scary how close it was to the event that it explains and when I first heard the song.
I was driving home today from Sean Spade's house and enjoying my usual Sherwood music. I have really gotten into the band recently because they are an excellent band and because I am going to a concert in May that has Relient K, mae, and Sherwood. So I downloaded both cds to give them a try, because knowing the words to the songs and the concerts make them SOOO much better in my opinion. Back to the point, the song "Never Ready To Leave" came on, track 8 of "A Different Light" their newest album. There was nothing else my mind was on and I've heard a couple times before but I really listened to the song. It reminded me of something and it took me a moment, but after a moment I realized that it completely mirrored my situation with Jenny before she broke up with me. I was taken by surprised. I had to be sure because it was a tad to creepy for me to accept. So I hit the back button and listened to it over again and sure enough it matched up. I felt compelled to write an entry on my finding and decided to put it on both facebook and LJ because I found it that interesting. I would just put the song up and let you read it for yourself but it might not fit because every song has a different meaning for everyone. Therefore I shall give you my reasoning line by line. This will help paint the picture if you will. Plus, I don't want to be like all those other people who post songs just because I like them.
Never Ready To Leave by Sherwood
This room's been dusted
And it's covered in prints from
The month you spent with me.
(The room is my life and the month would be the year and a quarter of my life I spent with her and you can still see the affects of our relationship on me and my life, ie. gifts, shows, music)
And I've cataloged it,
Arranged the report with a chapter every week
And I've studied sleepless
Biting my nails and grinding my teeth.
(Towards the end I was thinking all the time about what went wrong and if there was a possible way to fix it, thats just how I operate but you can't just magically FIX a relationship it takes will on both ends)
And I think I've had it,
But that makes two of us,
'Cause you've had it with me.
(It started getting strenuous waiting on her all the time and the blatant disregard, and she was tired of the relationship in general)
And here in the meantime,
I'm a fly on the wall, and glued to the action.
(I was on the edge of my seat, if it wasn't waiting anxiously to see her it was back to examining the relationship again, keep in mind this wasn't my life but when I thought about her thats what I thought about, not like a fiend or a crazy stocker but in a general sense)
A twist in the plotline,
A demand for a call, the loss of attraction.
(The relationship had changed, I wanted a call every now and again, which she never did, and she lost her attraction to me whether it be physical or mental)
And I'll tell you the worst part:
You're exactly the way that I thought you would be
(I did expect her to do this if she ever stopped liking me for whatever reason. Never call, stop being excited to see me, stop asking me to be around, never wanting me to drive her back to school)
So I'll staple the last call
'Cause I'll move away, but I'm never ready to leave.
I'll move away but I'm never ready to leave.
(I'll remember our last meeting together when she broke up with me for a while, like hanging a picture above my computer desk or something that I would glance at from time to time and make me a tad depressed, I wasn't ready for the break up, I wanted to fix it, I wanted to do something but I couldn't, I was helpless and I had give her the space she said she needed but I was never ready to leave.)
This house is haunted
But not in the way that you've always heard it said
And I'll dust the attic
No razor teeth making camp beneath your bed.
(The house is my life after she broke up with me, I cleaned out everything that reminded me of her from my room and made sure I wouldn't feel so depressed for the next week or two, I still haven't brought out the stuffed penguin she got me from the closet yet, like I'm scared of it or something like a kid would be of a monster under the bed.)
But I've heard them walking late at night
With twins of confusion and regret
(I still lay awake or wake up and can't go back to sleep because I'm still confused as to most of the reasons she broke up with me and a regret that I couldn't do anything to save it and/or it didn't last longer. Like they pace back and forth in my head.)
And they share the stories of things that I have done
That I'd rather just forget.
(I'll remember times we had together that were great for me and her. We just be together at an activity or just at Wal-Mart making jokes or talking about life. I wish I could forget them sometimes because it would be easier on me emotionally.)
So this is how it feels to be 24
A thief without a key to an open the door
(Replace 24 with 20, I was trapped in the decision that she made, I couldn't escape it)
Just peering through the window
For any clue,
Or anything explaining a part of you.
(I looked everywhere for any reason she would do break up with me that would explain a little more clearly or make some more sense to me than the end I always come up with. That she just didn't like me anymore because of something I did or because of the person I am.)
I guess the real question is, I don't know,
Is, why I am afraid of letting go?
(pretty straight forward, I still don't know why I was and am so scared to let go of what we had. Was I comfortable? Was I afraid of being alone again? I'm not to sure about those. The only reason I could come up with is because I love her. Thats the only reason I could think of that would make this so difficult for me. I'm not afraid of being alone because even if she is I wouldn't be alone. I was comfortable but I wasn't THAT comfortable because a comfortable relationship is a boring relationship. It had its complications but that shows that there is activity in the relationship. The thought of dating someone else is still scary. I really did love her. But I taught myself to be heartless after the girlfriend before Jenny and its happened before, my girlfriend breaking up with me when I love her, so I'm used to it and thus not so destroyed by it. I just keep trucking. Its the only thing I can so really.)
Well thats it the rest of the song is just repeats of the chorus with some other lines thrown in like whoa,whoa and I'll move away but I'm never ready to leave. Its a good song and Sherwood is a great band you should check them out if my entry hasn't destroyed your stomach with its emotional contents. Again, I'm fine I just wanted to share my findings. She had her reasons and I can't MAKE her do anything, I wouldn't do that to anyone. I hated even having her feel like she HAD to hang out with me. I wanted her to want to be with me, which she obviously didn't.
Now, on a lighter note. On to some video games. Retro gaming is more fun then all this Xbox 360/Wii/PS3 Mumbo Jumbo. Its also a WHOLE lot cheaper.

|Can't a guy catch a break?
This sucks. This year is going to be the year of my discontent. I can tell. Everything horrible that could possibly happen to me has happened to me this year, AND IT HAS BARELY STARTED!!!!
Why can't college be easier? I can handle the projects and the getting to class on time, but the only thing I find difficult is actually getting in. I can get in, but I have to jump through fifty thousand hoops and make the higher ups happy before I can get in. All because Ms. Robinson didn't want me to take Statistics senior year. I have 19 credits that can transfer, but I have to go to Perimeter to get the other 11 I need to be a sophmore and I have to do all of this in one summer. Then hope that the college will still take it about 3 before classes start, which they probably won't. I could go to Gwinnett Technical college this next quarter and get the credits I need but that requires the money for the classes and the money for the books which I don't have. Also the money for the car and the gas to get up there. I just want to get to a school and stay there. Thats all. Is that so much to ask? I'm smart enough. I made great grades and Brewton-Parker. I could do great at any school in georgia, but I don't have the credentials from High School that they want. All I have is Cisco Networking Academy which most High School Kids have a hard time doing but for some reason I didn't have a problem doing, but who cares right? I didn't have Honor Roll or Community Service or AP Whatever. And those really matter. Not the ability to program industrial routers and create an Network Scheme for an office building. Who needs those?
I also have to get a job. I have an interview tomorrow, but I have to cut my hair to make the manager happy at the interview tomorrow. Thats not so bad I guess other than the fact that my hair goes with my trenchcoat better than short hair will. I still hate having to cut my hair. I like long hair, so sue me.
My parents are stressed out. They want all the kids to just move out. I want to, but I have to get into college first. That can't happen until next fall at the earliest so I have to catch a chest full of guilt every time I talk to them about anything. Then my dog gets mad at my other dog today and cuts his face just beneath his right eye thus stressing parents out even more which in turn stresses me out because I can't talk to my parents anymore. The only friend I can really talk to now is in Vidalia, but I can't go visit out there cause I need money to pay back Brewton-Parker who won't free my transcript up till I pay them back so I can't go to another college until I pay them $900. Woohoo. Life suck.
I also get the shaft in my relationship. I find myself without a girlfriend when it would be SOOOO nice right now to have someone to hang out with and talk to and just feel like everything is ok with right now, but no everything bad had to happen to me and what better to seal the deal than a breakup. I'm not saying she didn't have her reasons, of which I don't know because she stopped talking to me and won't answer me when I ask her, and she had a right to stop dating me if she wanted to. I'm past the initial depression stage and onto the adding it to the pile of bad things that happened to me this year stage. I would have been nice to know a little bit more about her reasons and to at least be friends and talk a little bit, but she never talked to me before the breakup so why would she talk to me now. She just doesn't have the time for me. So why depend on someone who can't keep dates or remember when to call you because knitting or a magazine seems like barrels of more fun.
I need a break. I need a little reassurance. I need a vacation.
This isn't a cry for sympathy or help really. Its more of a getting-things-off-my-chest post. I'm fed up with my horrible luck and my horrible timing. I don't blame anyone else for my problems. All of them have something to do with the choices that I made. Its my life and I did something to make it turn out the way it has and its up to me to take the initiative and make it better. Its just really hard to make rocket out of a couple tubes of PVC pipe and a fire.

|The Human Help Desk
I spent a semester working for the Salem High School Computer Help Desk. I had fun helping people and I enjoyed figuring out there problems. The whole playing video games between tasks was awesome as well. lol. It was during that time I figured that helping people was something I enjoyed doing. Whether its listening to a friends problems or fixing their computer. Its hard to find people who will do that. I'm not saying I will drop everything I am doing to help someone. I'm not that good a person. I don't even consider myself a good person now that I think about it, but thats neither here nor there. I try to be there for people, is what I'm trying to say. But for some reason is hard for me to find people who will stand with me. Its like they all go their own way. They won't turn and help me out. I have one friend like that but he's in Vidalia lol. So I'm sunk. Everyone else seems to turn on my like I don't matter. I know this post reeks of angst but I feel like typing it so bear with me.
Distance can bring people apart in more ways than one. But I've realized their are different types of distance. There is the physical distance where people are seperated geographically and then there is the distance that seperates people mentally. Points of view and such. We can all get past one distance or another if we find the person to be worth it. Whether it be a friend or a significant other. As luck would have it (bad luck by the way) I have found myself seperated from most everyone. From my friend here in town that I hang out with all the time I find myself seperated mentally. The other people important in my life I find myself either physically seperated, mentally seperated, or both. And there is nothing I can really do about. Thats probably the most frustrating about the whole ordeal. I don't have a job even though I'm trying and thus no money. I can't visit people or hang out unless the person is willing to travel to me. Some people don't even want to hang out with me or don't have the time to hang out with me.
For the first time in a while I find myself cornered. With no way to fight it. I can't force people to do anything. Its not me. I like giving people options. Sometimes the things they decide to do keeps me from hanging out with them because I don't want to be around it. Thats the bad part about options. But I'm not sure what to do. Its like all I can do it sit back and hope for the tide to turn before I drown. I could be a hermit. Lock myself up in my room and never come out again but thats not very fun. There is no life in that.
I might start volunteering at church. Even though I'm not a big fan of Howard Greer, I feel like I might be able to find some satisfaction in working around the church. Some people aren't a big fan of church, but I find the atmosphere to be more welcoming than most and the purpose for which they are there is a shared one. Everyone has their own agenda but at least they CLAIM to be there for the right purpose even if that isn't the reason they are there.
No one looks out for each other anymore. Once you're out of high school its kill or be killed in the business world because the world is about money not about people. Maybe I can change that for me. Maybe I can look out for people where ever I get a job. Even if they don't look out for me. That seems like the only way its ever going to get started. There are probably a select few that look out for others in the business world and the only way to help is to join the ranks.
I need to stop worrying about the things I can't change and focus on the things I can change. Thats the conclusion I came to after typing all that. In retrospect it feels like I took a bunch of topics and just gave them a paragraph each lol. This is all just me thinking, if any of you who read this has advice or an opinion I'd be glad to hear. Try to keep it away from the negative side though but if you feel you must then knock yourself out.

When you're bored things tend to slow down. When you're having the time of your life things seem to accelerate at an alarming rate. Then when you're standing at the end of your spectacular event you seem awed by the fact that it went by so quickly. This whole surprising time concept is a plus at times, but it can also be a hinderance. For instance, when you download a big file that takes like a week and a half to finish, you forget its even there and go about your day to day life and fool yourself into being extremely surprised about the fact that the complete series of Duck Tales is finished downloading and you totally weren't expecting it. The hinderance would be if you were really excited about college to start back but by the end of the semester its not half as cool as you intially thought. Its still rockin' don't get me wrong. I met a lot of cool people and now at the end of the semester I'm having ten times as much fun with these cool people than I ever was a the beginning but money puts a damper on things and now I have to change schools because Brewton-Parker would bankrupt Bill Gates. Well perhaps not Bill Gates but definitley my family and alot of of families if their children went a full 4 years. Hopefully next semester will seem longer and I'll get more done.
Thanksgiving is here at that means tons of food and an even fatter, I mispelled it hatter at first cause my fingers are way too retarded for my own good, and happy Jared. That is if it will be a large spread. I'm not sure if we are going to be able to afford it this year. We'll eat for sure but not a huge expensive smorgisthingy because I can't spell smor-gish-board. Those were syllables not the actual word. Although its all about family and I haven't seen them in about a month. I like my family. It seems like they are more sane then a lot of people in this world. Then they remind me of the money I cost them and it ruins my fond memories. The only thing they accomplish really is the whole Office Space TPS Report thing. Where seven bosses come by and remind him about the same thing each time evenafter he tells them he got the memo and he'll fix it right away and he's sorry. Its rather annoying but then again I am costing them a lot of money. Hopefully I can find some way to pay for some of my expenses. Jobs are scarce in Vidalia and Mount Vernon. But oh well, it happens.
Valkyrie Profile 2 is awesome. Arngrim is teh ownage. As my fellow nerds would say lol. I got back into Final Fantasy 8 and I wass rockin it. Then I got to the end of the first disc and it asked for the 2nd and I was like "No prob Mr. PsOne. Let me hook you up really quick homie." Then I go to get it and I find out I have 2 Disc 3s but no disc 2. I then came to the conclusion that I hate Gamestop. While they have cheap games from time to time they failed to give me the disc I needed to proceed in my FF 8 goodness. Now I have to go out and buy them game again somehow. I'll figure it out eventually and I shan't worry about it too much because I have enough games. My older brother is getting me Final Fantasy 3 for the DS and Bobby is giving me the money to buy Bleach DS so I'll be happy in my video game heaven for now. I'm also playing Star Wars: Knights of the Republic Sith Lords which is fun. I'm playing Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance with Jose at college which is awesome. I've been trying to play that game with someone for a long time but Jose seems like the only one who always wants to play the game. Which is awesome because I always want to play the game unless I'm in the middle of something else.
This was a long LJ entry. I guess it was fitting since I never post anymore because I'm never bored enough. Time to tell another joke that has not real meaning or punch line and yet I still expect other people to laugh! HAHAHAHAHAHA That was SOOOOO funny. I'm lame kids! lol Peace yo! Stay fresh son! Peace out A-Town down! White and Nerdy! Seriously, bye kids.

I haven't updated in a dog's age. Simply because I got bored with it and got to busy. Or I just never felt like it, but regardless of the reason for me not updating. I'm updating NOW!
College is awesome. The money spending on it sucks, but once you get past that its pretty flippin sweet. I miss my car though. My car is the junk and its my music listening domain. Plus its my buddy. Oh well, I'll get it back eventually and when I do it will be glorious.
Classes are going good and Psychology is interesting.
And I just realized why I don't update. BECAUSE DAILY UPDATES ARE POINTLESS AND BORING. I wish I had something entertaining to update about. Like how mice are really smarter than humans and conducting an experiment on us to attain the meaning of life, but then I would feel like I'm copying someone somehow. Oh well.
3 squares a day rocks by the way.

|Premiere (and probably the last) episode of Vocabulary with Jared!
Today's word: Masterbate
My older brother doesn't like this word. After telling me I replied with "What you don't like the word Master? Are you sympathic toward the slaves?" Then I said a phrase with Master. The Sega Master System. After that I asked "Or do you just not like the word bait? If you go fishing with the ultimate bait you can said you have the master bait." We all laughed and I was proud of myself. Whether or not I should feel proud of myself I leave you all you livejournal kids. Except the black ones, because they hate the word Master. Stupid slaves.

I have decided that over 80% of the population doesn't actually know whats going on with presidents in presidential elections. Most people just say "Oh He is Republican/Democratic so I guess I should put all the mud that I can and join the media in their mud-slinging fest and aim at the president on the opposing political party." After making that point, you might ask me "Why Jared, don't you have some political stand point and do the same thing?" My answer to this is simple: NO. I don't like to bad mouth the president. Once he is out of office. He is fair game. No one is perfect and to be anal about how the president is doing is just complaining over spilt milk. Therefore, I won't be contributing come next election time. Some of you might see this as ignorant or stupid of me, but on the contrary I have a very good reason for not participating. Jared = 0.0000000001% of the vote. So my vote will do literally nothing. I'll have about as much luck influencing the outcome of the election as Osama Bin Laden would have if he tried to walk into the Pentagon and get a cup of Joe. Also, since 80% of the people voting are going to be misinformed by the general media it would be pointless, because fighting with idiots is like fighting with a disgruntled bear who is trying to eat your leg. You won't win. In addition to these reasons I figure that anyone would be better than me. Not because they are smarter or more inclined to leading the nation, but simply because I would lock myself in the Oval Room (or whatever the devil they call that round thing the president sits in) and play video games all the time. I always have to spend time doing things I don't want to do to get money so I can do things I WANT to do. Who wouldn't want to be PAID to do nothing. Show me that person, and I'll call them stupid and think a devilish ways to give them nothing to do and then get paid when they do nothing just to make them miserable. I'd abuse my presidental power. I'd go around doing crazy stuff that was humorous and slightly bothersome. Every now and again I'd do my job. For about an hour just to mix it up, but after that I'd be right back to doing nothing and getting paid to do it. Media would leave me alone because I would carry something that emits Electromagnetic Pulses and take out their cameras. Simple solution for a troublesome problem. I'd also pass laws to make people happy one day and then do a U turn and make everyone happy. I'd ban gay marriage indefinitly. Then the next day I would legalize weed. Making the gays and liberals happy and the conservatives sad one day and then making the liberals happy and then the conservatives mad the next day. It would be terribly fun. Although I doubt I could keep the liberals happy for too long. They always fine something to complain about. I'd also nuke Afganistan(sp?), Pakistan(sp?), Iran, and Iraq. I'd evacuate women first since they really don't cause trouble because they aren't even allowed to learn in some of those countries. The men would all die. They could say it was for their God so they would all be met in heaven by 70 some-odd virgins. So from their point of view its a win win. Everyone goes home (or to heaven) happy. No more terrorists and the feminists are happy because the women over their can finally learn and start running Gas Stations everywhere. In anycase, thats all for politics. Voting takes too long anyway. Too many lines. Current Mood: hungry

|Scariest/Most Uncomfortable moment.
For the past couple of days I have been pondering what the scariest moment in a person's day/month/year/life. After much speculation I think I have come up with the answer. First I shall break down the thought process I have gone through to come to such a conclusion.
I started out at the the hypothesis stage of the though process. And found that (according to observation of the population of the people I know, most of which who are emo) the scariest moment in a person's time-measurement (ie. day, month, or year) would be when a significant other and/or spouse cheats on them or breaks up with them; however, seeing as not everyone(me) is emo, this does not apply. (On a completely unrelated topic, in the Matrix Neo is called The One which is a clever re-arrangement of Neo. I thought for a second that me could be the same thing when related to emo. But the most you can spell out with emo is Moe. Sorry for those of you who are named Moe. You're emo.) That was the test stage for those of who don't know how to follow the scientific model, which is being modified as my "thought process" for this Lj post.
After this failure I had to go through the "though process" again. I'll skip to the juicy and correct hypothesis to save on time and to save my figures a little typing-time. I was at school thinking about the problem and as I walked down the hall I saw my teacher who I don't know very well. As the gap of air between up closed I pretty sure we both recognized each other. We both, also, thought "Should I say hello or just ignore them? Maybe they'll get offended if I don't say hello. I know if they don't say hello I won't either. No, that won't work. I guess I just have to face this akward situation and say 'hello'." So when we get within ear shot we both said "Hello" and continued on our way. That 15 seconds that we both experienced while approaching each other is the scariest moment in anyone's time-measurement. Everyone goes through it so it applies to everyone. Well it happens to everyone but those mental shut-ins and people who aren't right in the head. They tend to give hugs to anyone who passes by so they don't count. Besides, they aren't really people anyway; thus, nullifying their participation in this experiment.
So the theory has been proven, and if you say you have never walked down the hall of whatever establishment you regularly attend and encountered someone you barely knew and without hesitation said "Hello!" every single time. Then you're either lying or way to happy and polite to be a human-being; thus, nullifying you from participating in this experiment. Current Mood: amused

I've never heard of a LiveJournal nudge, but it seems i got one in my email just now telling me to update. I studied the word "nudge" and its background. It seems that nudge in its original greek means "annoy until LJ update." So there you go Jenny. I updated. Current Mood: amused

|Watch out kids...... here it comes
You might call me a crazy star struck moron, but under all this large mexican shell, I am a video game addict. While I haven't had enough time to play video games lately, I still have a video game to look forward to. Recently I have been playing Resident Evil 4 for PS2, and while this game is interesting. It is just a deterent from the pain of waiting for Kingdom Hearts 2. Which comes out next Tuesday. I won't be working or going to school that day. If you need me I can be found in my garage-room playing Kingdom Hearts 2 and slowing slipping into madness from the sheer awesome.
On to other things. MomoCon, a anime/video game convention at Georgia Tech, was held last weekend. I went on Sunday with my siblings because all my friends who are interested in anime and video games were busy. It was a large waste of time other than the fact that I bought two amazing Final Fantasy Music Hard Rock remix Cds by a band called The Black Mages. In anycase, anime people scare me. It seems like they all have the same connection to a false sense of reality where they are their favorite anime character. So its kinda like being at a circus where the show is free. You get to see a bunch of nut cases whoe stop at random moments so other nut cases can take pictures of their poorly made costumes. These poses are in and of themselves hilarious. The fact that some black guy thinks he can dress up as a white anime chracter is beyond anything even close to something resembling common sense. I'm pretty sure that 99.9% of all of the occupance of MoMoCon (the 0.1% being me) has a very hard time getting along in the real world. When they work in their cubicle by themselves they will be fine. Because no one will be there to see themn try and make funny anime puns or jump from their desk to the ceiling so they can throw imaginary knives at unsuspecting victims who will just look at them like they are crazy. But if you put them in a normal everyday job, like say a resturaunt job, they will feel out of place and probably get fired for trying to convince the customer that they can do something completely absurd like disappear and reappear at the other end of the resteraunt and/or scream real loud and hope some frightening fire like aura shows up around them like in Dragon Ball Z. After failing at this, their manager will tell them to either come back to reality or never come back to work again. In anycase, MoMoCon is full of weirdos. Anime Weekend Atlanta is probably the same way. Yesterday morning was a waste of a morning.
Time to go talk to the police about the Taco Bell incident that happened with some friends and I. Max has to look at photos and decide who the culprit is. Hopefully we can still recognize him after my mexican fist hit him in the face after he threw that beer bottle at Robert. Current Mood: calm

|I'm in love.....
I'm in love guys. I know I bust on emo kids all the time but I can't help but be emo right now. She is amazing and deserves my emoness. If I wasn't emo toward her right now it would be a crime. I couldn't do such an injustice to the one I love. She plays all the games that I love to play. She enjoys a lot of the things that I love. Somethings we don't match up on but I think we can work through them. She is amazing. She makes me happy like I was happy in the old days. For a while now there have been some disappointments. But now everything has cleared up. I can't even begin to imagine how lucky I am. Its something I can't fathom. I thank God everyday for the blessing that he has bestowed on me. I never planned on falling in love with anyone for a long time, but we don't decide when something takes us by surprise and ends up having us fall head over heels for them. The thing that rekindled our relationship was Tales of Eternia, and the predetermined release of Kingdom Hearts 2. My love is amazing and I can just sit there and spend time with her for hours and never get bored. Losing sleep for something you love is beyond anything you canm imagine. My PS2 loves me and I love her.
Just kidding. I'm not emo. Emo is retarded. Had you going didn't I?
P.S. Tales of Legendia is flippin awesome. Current Mood: Emo

|5-0 ain't got nothing on this.
I got pulled over by the fuzz on the way home from Jenny's dorm. To bad he couldn't give me a ticket for anything. Jared is to slippery for the po-po. Maybe he was just looking to arrest someone who was driving without a license or someone with a stolen car and/or no insurance. Oh well. I drive legally. Pirate Car = 1 Monticello Po-Po = 0.
