I have been having weird ass dreams as of late. If I manage to sleep at all (I was up all night last night). They have gone from being unmanageable nightmares to dreams that just make me want to give a big “what the fuck?” I am on a medication for PTSD and nightmares. I must say that it works rather well; it just relives it a bit though, it is by no means a fix. I still have a nightmare every once in a while.
Take my dream earlier on in the week for example. I dreamt that the Earth was destroyed and I was reincarnated on another planet in another galaxy. The strange thing is I remember my past life on Earth. I live my life up to age 23; still remembering and insisting on my past life. They think that I am insane and I wind up being locked up in a facility. Here’s where it really gets weird. ALL of my friends are in the same facility and it is haunted. This isn’t a scary dream, but rather a dream that makes me question my own beliefs.
A rather cool dream I have been having is when I just run. I don’t have a purpose in life; I am just a running man. I hit up bars and drink my fill of alcohol. I keep running and running until at some point time just slows down. Eventually aliens abduct me and I wake up.
The only recurring nightmare I have now deals with tornadoes. I was in the May 22, 2011 tornado and it put me in a state of PTSD. I just go about my day until around 6:00pm the skies get dark and creepy. Mom and I get in the basement at our old house that was actually destroyed in the storm. The tornado hits hard and everything goes into slow motion and we both (Buttons included) get sucked up in the vortex and I wake up.
So yeah, I have pretty weird dreams. I also have trouble falling asleep.
Ah the days just keep flying by. The storms here in this part of the states are flaring up a fair amount. The tornadoes are being good this year and are avoiding the town. Instead the bastards took out the area around the city! It is supposed to storm all week long; the creeks were way out of bank a week ago. I didn’t take any pictures but you can trust me that the water situation is way out of control; we do NOT need any more rain!
Spotify is great, I don’t know why I didn’t get into it earlier! I use the free version. The only downside are the ads, but I can get past that! 90 seconds of ads for five to seven songs! I set up my laptop next to my bed and turn Spotify on and crash to it.
Here is some good news. Ashley and I are going to be celebrating one year of being together this coming June 20th. The year flew by very quickly. I can honestly say that I love this woman. There have been some downs, but there have also been far more ups! Here’s to a full year and many more!
It’s been 167 days since my last post. I am still alive, folks! Not much has been going on over the past few months. I am still seeing the same girl and things are going swimmingly. I am starting the process of finding a job soon. I have a meeting tomorrow at 11 am for intake and assessment to find out what I am good for.
I am hoping to land a job at a video store, game store, comic book store or a combination of three like Vintage Stock. I am so ready to get a new job it’s not even funny. I would even work in fast food if I had to. Now I really don’t want to work in fast food, but if I had to ask, “Do you want fries with that?” in order to make a buck, I will. I am only looking for part time work at the moment and have to bounce thru hoops in order to keep important things like insurance. I am actually hoping for nothing more than minimum wage working around 20 hours a week. That will get me out of my apartment and away from those God forsaken groups that eat away time. The only good part about the groups is hey, free gym membership. When I get a job, my gym time will suffer and I will lose my free membership; I will have to reapply and pay out of my own pocket.
One Punch Man season 2 came out last month! So far eight episodes have been released and I am Johnny on the spot in terms of viewing them. I have all of season 1, the OVA, all of the specials and the soundtrack. I am an OPM nerd!
The weather here has been crazy. The tornado sirens went off six times last Wednesday, May 22nd. Just in time for the eight year anniversary of the EF-5 tornado that totaled the city and caused over 150 fatalities. Thankfully only three to five people died this round. Speaking of deaths, a family member of mine passed away last Thursday in the morning hours. Please keep his wife, children, and other close family members in your prayers.
I promise I will update the “Personal Blog for the Public World” more often now. I plan on updating two to three times a week from here on out! :P
Boy howdy it sure has been quite some time since I have last posted, and life has been going great! I owe it all to “A”, my girlfriend. It has almost been six months since we got together. Six months and still going strong! This is the longest relationship that I have ever been involved in.
The relationship has been going so swimmingly that I have had dreams of actually being married to her. I plan on waiting on a year or two into the relationship before I pop the question; just to make sure ;). I can honestly say that as far as girlfriends go, she is the best one that I have had! She actually lifts the depression that I endure at times… I love her :) !
Here is a picture. I am on the left in the brown, she is rocking the purple on the right!
I have new employment! Well sort of anyway. I applied to a video store just for kicks. I got an interview and I suddenly wanted to work there really badly. Unfortunately I didn’t get that job. On the plus side, a friend of mine is “hiring” me to watch his kid while he and his wife are busy with work, rest and the like. Any money is good money, so I am happy. Even if I didn’t get my “dream job” at a video store, I will be doing something to help someone and get paid for it. I don’t know the exact rate of pay as of yet, but like I said, any money is good money. I am very happy to help them out and just as happy to have a small sort of additional income. I am very excited about this. I start tomorrow and go thru Saturday to Monday this week. I am basically going to almost quadruple my spending funds if this goes all the way!
So I have been on the hunt for a bulk pack of Ghost in the Shell. I found what I was looking for! I found a torrent that has it all. All of the movies, series and OVAs. The only thing I am missing now is the live action movie with Scarlett Johansson. The torrent is 29.1GB but I can nab it at 4.3mbps so it will download quickly. I am surprised that the torrent is as small as it is. I am excited to start watching Ghost in the Shell all over again!
I will begin work on my comic book database next Wednesday. I estimate it will take about two weeks to fully complete, so that is something to look forward to. I think I have around 175 to 200 comic books, but I am not sure. That number can be lower or higher, who knows?
I have updated my contact page and removed fatty tracker. I am off to shop for shoes and vittles. Take care, fellow nerds!
