Updates...

Hello out there to all my ape addicts. In my last post I promised to post more often, yeah I have kind of slacked off in that department. Oh well, I'm gonna toss some updates and thoughts at ya tonight. Finals have come and gone, it feels good to have one semester of law school under my belt yet it is very humbling at the same time. It is humbling simply because of grades, which aren't all posted yet(still haven't figured that one out yet), however the ones that are up have been a mixed bag, nothing I'm ashamed of but it is a whole different league then undergrad was. Long gone are the days of simply showing up and getting A's, but I do appreciate that school is a bit more challenging these days, discussion in undergrad was ridiculous and always ended up with me dominating discussions until Greg would step in and own me, however it was almost always Greg that had to do so. Law school is a bit different because I don't find myself talking as frequently simply because I prefer to let people drone on with their pointless inquiries into irrelevant situations and hypotheticals. I really thought when I got to this level people would stop asking stupid questions, since you need to be reasonably intelligent to get into law school, however now people simply ask stupid questions in a more sophisticated fashion. Regardless I am enjoying school and it is a million times better than being where I was last year. I also owe a big thanks to my dad and to Greg both of who always believed that I could compete at the law school level and succeed, thank you both for always believing in me and encouraging me. Winter break was rather boring overall. I spent lots of time sleeping and earning 360 achievements and not a whole lot else, so being back in school is kind of nice simply for the fact of having somewhere to go and something to do. I did get to see my dear friend Alex and meet his gf who seems to be a very lovely and cool girl, very happy he found someone like that(proof that good things can happen to nice guys). However, I really did not appreciate the drastic change in class times for this semester, having to be up at 7:30 a.m. 4 days a week would not be my ideal schedule. Oh well, I'll live and set a better schedule for myself when I get to actually pick my classes. No I still have not gotten up the nerve to ask a certain girl out, I keep hoping someday I'll get to the guts to do it but we will see. That's about all I have for now so til next time ape addicts I love and miss all of ya. Peace and much love.

I'm Back....

Hey there Marvelous Ape addicts! Did you miss me? So it's been almost a year since I blogged. I figured I better come back and tell you all what has happened over the last year. Well as many of you know the last year I had a lot of up and downs for me. However, when all was said and done I got myself a car, got myself moved, and got myself into law school. There were many times that I wasn't sure it would all work out, but I drudged through and made it happen. Right now I'm living with my some of my best friends and enjoying being around people again. I think that was the worst part about spending those 15 months back in Dalton, interacting with only my dad and people at the call center. Now I am lucky enough to see most of my good friends on an everyday basis, now if we could only get Alex and Evan to move down too;) Being down in the cities has been a good experience thus far and school has gone pretty well. I have finals the next 2 weeks and I am looking forward to hopefully doing well on them. The one thing I am still lacking is a girlfriend, I have someone in mind but I'm not sure I'll ever get up the nerve to ask her. I guess I am just a sucker for a beautiful smart blond girl who laughs at my jokes. Hopefully sometime in the future I get the stones to ask her out, but we shall see, courage isn't so easily developed, also I'm sure she has other better options than yours truly but you never know, weirder things have happened. Anywayz I love and miss you all and hopefully my loyal readers come back to check out the crazy adventures of the ole marvelous ape. Peace and much love.

Things I don't understand...

Hey everyone. So 2 things have puzzled me lately. Number 1, the banning of hugging in schools. What the hell is up with that? I was always taught that hugging was an appropriate way to greet friends and people you care about. Apparently now a lot of school principals and administrators see this gesture as leading to a more inappropriate behaviors i.e. kissing and sex. Granted in some cases hugging does lead to kissing and on occasion sex but this happening once in awhile doesn't seem to warrant the universal ban on hugging that is taking place at certain schools nationwide. I guess I might feel differently if I had a child at that age, but I would like to think that I would be ok with my kids hugging their friends. Number 2, rappers sampling kids songs. Earlier in the year it was do your ears hang low(does yo chain hang low) and now the wheels on the bus( the g-slide). Apparently Patrick, myself, Jon, Alex and Evan need to form some kind of a rap posse. We could use the rap names MC Phatrick, The Legend, JMJ, A-Train, and Fat Evan. Our hit single will be a remix of knick knack patty whack and will have the following chorus.

With a knick knack pimp slap, I gave my bitch the bone.
This young pimp drove his escalade home.

I have just written the chorus for a chart topping single. Ridiculous? You bet it is. Anyways I love and miss you all and you may be seeing me before you think;) Peace and much love.

So I'm not dead....yet.

Hey everyone. So I realize that I have been bad at keeping in contact with my readers as well as updating my blog. Trust me there is a very good and very long explanation to this, which I will give when the entire situation concludes. Since it has not reached it's completion I will not name the other parties involved or the nature of the issues. As far as me goes there isn't a lot to tell but I will try to dish out a few updates. All my free time at the moment has continued to fuel my wow addiction. For those of you who are unaware I very recently joined one of the top guilds in the us(ranked no 6 I belive) and one of the top 75 worldwide(ranked no 68). I can't decide whether I am just that good or just that damn lucky. I think it is probably a combination of both. Needless to say the old guild misses me, cuz cmon who doesn't miss having me around(yes I'm still that delusional). To translate into some math what this change means I am currently doing things that only .3% of the entire wow population can good. Very serious business(lol killing pixelated monsters?). Other than that I am bored off my ass and can not wait to get out of this god forsaken place and into somewhere else. The cable is bad, the internet is bad, and I don't have any friends that I get to see on a regular basis. I also have way too much time to sit and think about the current state of things as well as other unpleasant issues. Doing my best to keep my head above water at the moment, but I will admit it's kinda rough these days. Oh well I guess I always seem to get by. I just can't wait to get out of here. I guess I don't have much else to say at the moment. Comments are welcome as is hate mail. I still love each and every one of ya. Peace and much love.

So....

In case you haven't heard I had to put my enrollment into law school on deferment for a year. It sucks really bad and I'm not happy about it at all, however sometimes circumstances just fucking suck and you have to deal with them. I fully intend to go next year once I get everything cleared up it just fucking sucks that I have a year of nothing to do but work. Sigh, seems like everything in my life has to be the hard way.
