It's that time of year......

hey gorilla groupies. Thank you to those of you who answered the johari and nohari things I posted on my blog last time. On Thursday I was coerced by some friends to go to quarter taps at the bar, if you get the chace do that pass on it. It was very much what I expected and I really didn't enjoy it that much. Everyone I knew came up and said hi to me but all of them were shocked to see me there, not suprising I m sure I stuck out like a sore thumb for those of you who know me well. Something I ve noticed a lot lately is how much people drink after they have been left by a bf/gf. Not that this really suprises me because it's a really difficult thing to deal with and alcohol is a way of avoiding it if only for a short while. I didnt go that route but there were alot of times I was close. It's funny how certain things are never far from the forefront of your mind and you find yourself thinking about them even when you dont mean to or want to for that matter. Maybe it's just that time of year or maybe its just me being dumb or some unknown reason. I wish life could be simple again and revert to the one time I was really happy. sigh unfortunately I have prolly done something or things that warrant me being unhappy. I have been thinking alot lately about leaving Morris next year, I know I said the same thing last year but I m more serious about it this time, its something that will need alot more consideration but it is an option I m considering. Oh well, I ll stop talking about stuff no one is interested in anywayz. Remember everyone the Gorilla love everyone of ya. Peace and much love.

Someday I will be normal again....maybe.......

Hey everyone. First of all, thank you to JMJ for answering my survey about my blog, the rest of you are either too busy or apathetic. So whats new? Well Pat and I got our presentation grade in Norse, we got a B. Howerver I am rather bitter about it considering the fact that we gave a really good presentation and what she docked us for is rather silly in my opinion. Valentine's day came and went, I dont really like
Valentines day and its not because I have spent most of them single. I dislike Valentine's day because I think it is silly to pick a specific day to show people youlove them. If you really love someone you should show them everyday that you love them instead picking one day to remember and show them. Treasure those who you love because love is the greatest gift of all and I m sad to say that it isnt always returned and doesnt always last. Thats my mini rant about v day. Took another history test on Friday, unsure about how I did on it, but I got an a on my presentation that Tony and I did in that class. Still lifting and swimming, working down towards 205 unsure if I ll ever get there but trying, 205 might bea little small for my frame but its a nice goal. I think thats all news concerning recent events. Recent thoughts are a little more difficult, this part of the year isnt easy and its further complicated buy certain things that are happening. Sometimes I wish that I could go back to simpler times. I miss alot of things and people who used to be in my life and I wish I could have them back. That prolly sounds really lame, but its true. Sigh, but then again life sucks like that. I dunno sometimes I just wanna lose it unfortunately I cant do that. Oh well.. I'll shut up now before it gets too personal.Oh, for you music fans out there check out these two bands: Panic! At the Disco and The Click Five. Panic! At the Disco sounds alot like fall out boy but I like them a lot more, in myopinion their best song is Lying is the most fun a girl can have without takingoff her clothes, for some reason that song seems to kinda hit home with me. The click five is a more pop sounding band but still good, their best song is Angel to you, Devil to me, this song reminds me a lot of someone I used to know. It's a really good song. Also we have a new music idea, we are ditching call on me by eric prydz instead we are doing tutti frutti summer love by gunter and the sunshine girls, you can see his version bygoing to http://gunthernet.com/ now our video will include pat evan and brad in thongs, dan getting pelted by fruit, alex in a hawaiian shirt, and probably yours truly wearing a mullet and a crappy moustache trying to look like euro trash along with lots of other goofiness, when we make it later this spring I will be sure to link it so tyou can all watch it. Anywayz thats all I got for now, remember all the gorilla love you all. Peace and much love.

Chuck Norris has counted to infinity. Twice.

Hey legend lovers. I dont know why I keep calling all you people out there my gorilla groupies or legend lovers maybe it's cause it makes me feel like there are a group of people out there interested in what is happening to me and reading what I have to say, even if there isnt I can at least pretend. Anyways just thought I would throw out some new things that are going on, Monday we got our tests back in Medieval Europe, I got a 97 I am fairly satisfied with that but I made a stupid mistake so there is plenty of room for improvement. Tuesday Pat and I did our presentation for Norse Saga and it went over really well, we got lots of laughs and even some appluase at the end, no other group has gotten any applause yet. Working out is going ok, I ve lost 4 lbs so far not great but not bad, and its nice to feel muscles again my ultimate goal is to get down to 205 but that is a little far fetched but i would be happy at 220-225. Theres alot running through my head these days, sometimes its hard to sort things out and such. There are so many things in my life i am unsure about, and those things used to be the things I was most sure about. Oh well, thats getting a little personal so I'll cut it off there. I m a very private person, sometimes I think maybe too private but then again thats better then the alternative of constantly spilling my guts to anyone who will listen. Anywayz heres some lyrics that I think are approproate.

"Some Day"

Someday, when I'm older
And they never know my name
Somehow, if I'm honest
I can never feel ashamed
Maybe I was wrong to
Hold you up so high
Now I know I've lost you
To the feelings I kept inside

I don't know if it felt like
I wanted you here, the way that I wanted you last time
We're not on the same page, you don't even know me
Cause you never took the time

Someday, when it's over
And you never show your face
I hope you'll remember
How I tried to make you a place
And so now, I move on
To keep my piece of mind
In someway, I've failed you
But I just ran out of time

I don't know if it felt like
I wanted you here, the way that I wanted you last time
We're not on the same page, you don't even know me
Cause you never took the time

I'm not sure that you hear me
I'm not sure that you look at me the same
I will always be attached to you
But I'm never gonna feel the same

I don't know if it felt like
I wanted you here, the way that I wanted you last time
We're not on the same page, you don't even know me
Cause you never took the time
No, you never took the time

Someday, when I'm older...

"Burning Bright"

I feel like there is no need for conversation
Some questions are better left without a reason
And I would rather reveal myself than my situation
Now and then I consider, my hesitation
The more the light shines through me
I pretend to close my eyes
The more the dark consumes me
I pretend I'm burning, burning bright

I wonder if the things I did were just to be different
To spare myself of the constant shame of my existence
And I would surely redeem myself in my desperation
Here and now I'll express, my situation

[CHORUS (2)]

There's nothing ever wrong but nothing's ever right
Such a cruel contradiction
I know I cross the lines its not easy to define
I'm born to indecision
There's always something new some path I'm supposed to choose
With no particular rhyme or reason

Thats all I got for now. Remember Guys and Gals the Legend loves everyone of ya. I hope this finds you all well and happy.Peace and much love.

Chuck Norris needs a Monkey Wrench and a Blow Torch to Masterbate...

Hey everyone. Once again it is I Jake The Legend Anderson, hahah man I wish that were true. Legends are people who do incredible things and make a difference in other peoples lives, me i m just a dellusional guy. Anywayz this week was fairly uneventful pretty much business as usual. I had a test and a presentation in Medieval Europe this last friday, apparently the presentation went well because the prof emailed Tony and me thanking us for going first and doing such an excellent job. We will see how the test turns out when I get it back, I think it went ok but ya never know. I have another presentation coimng up on Tuesday with Pat which I am hoping goes well. The workout coaltiion is still going strong and we are lifting weights, doing cardio, and swimming every weekday, so before ya know it i'll be uber sexy and all you ladies are gonna want a piece of me, (oh my god I m dellusional) but hey its a nice motivation even if it isnt real. Today we had a mini super bowl party in my room, we ate a lot of food and enjoyed the game I was hoping the Seahawks would win, but oh well. Lately my thoughts seem to be drifting a lot and I sometimes have a hard time reigning them in, my brain isnt always feeling cooperative. I dunno what it is, maybe its just what happened this time last year, or maybe its another combination of factors I dunno. Sigh, who knows half the time I dont even know what I m saying or if anything Im talking about makes sense. I guess I m just odd like that. Anywayz I lll shut up and stop rambling and hinting at things I m not going to explain anywayz. Remember guys and girls the Legend loves you and I hope this finds you all well. Peace and Much Love all.
