I just realized I haven't posted in about 2 months. I promised an update, and then I never gave one! I've been so darn busy...

In the past two months I have done the following (at the very least!)

- Settled in to Cali
- Had lots and lots of Manda-time
- Started a job @ PMC BanCorp (Mortgage Lender) as a Shipping Clerk
- Lost the use of my SK2 due to a broken charger port
- 'Downgraded' to my/Manda's old SK1
- Turned 26 (OHMIGAAA, OLD)
- Visited my mum while she vacationed in Las Vegas for about... 6 hours
- Made my little apartment cozy
- Learned how to get up at 6am on a regular basis, and not be late for work
- Starting going to sleep before midnight... often before 11pm (shocking, no?)
- Decided to start learning other languages (but haven't actually started yet)
- Got my computer case busted during shipping
- Replaced the case with a new, sexy one with the damage claim check
- Lost about 5 pounds (but want to lose about 50 more)
- Saw (muthafukin') Snakes on a (muthafukin') Plane
- Saw Pirates 2 (about 15 times less than I wanted to)
- Done a bunch else that I can't remember at the moment.

If I remember other things, I shall post them here!
...someday!

Yes, I am still alive!

I haven't really had much time to post to LJ lately, so I figured I'd just pop by and let you know some of the goings on! I am indeed living in Cali now, and am in the process of getting my apartment all nice and pretty. The job hunt is going slowly, but it goes, regardless.

There's a lot more to post about, but I figured I'd at least let everybody know I am still living and breathing, etc etc. :]

I also have my 'going away' stuff to post about, but I'm gonna hold off on that for now. There's also Moncsi and Alex's wedding, but I don't have my computer here yet. (I'm posting from Manda's computer)

Also... My birthday is only 4 days away! I'll be a geezerly 26 years. Wow :o

Oh! Also, my new address:

838 North Azusa Avenue
Apt 9
West Covina, CA 91791

Come find me! :]

Current Location: Manda's place!

I've realized I don't think I've posted about this...

June 14th, I am leaving my job at Pittsburgh Answering Service.

June 15th, Amanda (bloodyincubus) will be coming to visit me.

June 18th, Amanda, my mom, and myself will be doing the 5k walk for the Father's Day Walk. (http://www.fathersday5k.com)

June 22nd and 24th are festivities/wedding for two of my close friends, Moncsi (katatsumuli) and Alex (He's got no LJ ;-;).

And on June 27th, I will be moving to Covina, California.

I don't know if I've mentioned the move, but there you have it. Also, this means there will be items for sale before I depart. So far, I have:

- Two 17" monitors
- One 15" monitor
- Two CD towers
- Two CD holders (plastic, would fit well on a bookshelf)
- blue sofa (if my brother doesn't opt to take it)
- desk (cheap, nice if you just 'need a little desk')
- entertainment deck (or whatever it's called.. you can stack entertainment center components in it... receiver, CD player, record player, what have you)

I'll make a new list as I come up with more things to add.
Also, if you're local to me... it would be nice to meet some of you before I go. If not, I'll be back sometime! :D

I forgot to mention:

I am also selling off my scooter. I'm trying to get it gone as quickly as possible.
I'm hoping for between $2k-2.3k for it. This would include not just the scooter, but also a toolkit, brake fluid, starter fluid, a battery charger, and two high quality full-face black helmets (each worth $150/ea). I'll put up pictures when I have a chance.

If you're interested, or know anybody who is, let me know! I'll give you any/all info that you may need.

I was just thinking about lj, and just realized... I haven't made a post in about a month! I also realized that means I never told anybody how my trip went! I should probably get to that, sometime! As that I'm on my way to work right now, it'd be a little hard! I will do a few 'catch up posts', though. I'll outline things for now.

1) The trip to visit Manda went great! There will be a picture post or four about it, soon.

2) wtfWII?

3) On June 27th, I will be moving to California! June 15th, Manda will be arriving to help me finish things up.

4) On June 24th, my friends Moncsi & Alex will be getting married. This is my main reason for not leaving a little sooner. I'm a groomsman, so I need to buy a suit! (- haven't worn one in *years*)

5) June 14th will be my last 'working day' before I leave, so after that, Manda and I will be doing packing stuff, but it would be enjoyable to meet up with some of you locals before I hit the road! June 21st, 22nd, and 24th are already spoken for. Just let me know if you want to see us before we leave!

6) If you want my contact info, just comment with your email address, and I'll send you the whole kit and caboodle. (Phone #, current address, forthcoming address once I have it, etc)

7) I will be selling a number of items as the move comes closer. So far, it will be:

- a small sofa
- 3 monitors (two 17", one 15")
- 19" tv (cable ready, nothing fancy)
- matress, box spring and 'hollywood' style frame (if you don't mind used bed-whatnots, of course)
- some random as of yet undecided cds and perhaps dvds
- two cd towers (one wooden, one plastic)

More info to come in future posts!

I just realized I haven't updated in a looong time.
I'm in Cali, and have been since 3/23. :D

I'll be visiting my Manda til 4/7, and we've been having a great time. There will (eventually) be pictures, but for now, I'm just enjoying myself and spending my time with Amanda. I've also been looking into things regarding moving, since I aim to do so around the end of June/start of July. :D

Anyhoo... For those who are residents, it'd be cool to see some of y'all while I'm in town, but I make no guarantees I'll be available. 4/4 is me and Manda's 2nd anniversary, and wednesday is to be a busy day. But even if I don't get to see you this time, I'll be moving to Cali soon enough, anyhoo!

I am babbling sleepily, but... if you need me, you can email me, or im my mobile name. I will be slow, obviously, but I will respond (eventually)!

1) I realize I haven't posted what I got for the holidays. To be honest, I don't feel it's my place to brag about whatever whatnots that I received. I'll just suffice to say: I got things that I will greatly enjoy, and I appreciate the thought that went into all of them. Some of the presents were unusual, but that made them all the more interesting. Thanks, all those who gave me nifty things! You know who you are.

2) Resolutions: I'm through making useless resolutions. Year after year I make silly resolutions that I just can't seem to fulfill. What gets in the way is my own procrastination. (Which has not made it into my resolutions for obvious reasons) I'm through wasting my abilities. From here on in, I need to and MUST apply myself. My soul resolution: I will take the steps necessary to become the person I've always hoped to be. No time limit, but it starts now. First thing is first... I need to clean up this horrible mess that I call a living space. I'm sick of looking at this crap, knowing it's all my fault. I hope to have my apartment in decent enough shape to actually show you all what it looks like within the next two weeks, at most. The sooner, the better.

Off to work, now.

This is one of the most interesting uses of flash animation I've ever seen.
If any one of you watches this music video, I can promise you, you'll all see something different than me. Not a one of you will have the same experience.

The song is 'You Make Me Feel', by Mike Milosh.
