I have some bad news to report, and more bad news to report. Let me start out with the bad news. The lens on my Xbox One has decided to hiccup. It will not read any discs of any sort; game, dvd, or blu ray. My friend, Gamaken, is going to help me in trying to fix it. I was told that your run of the mill disc cleaner may actually cause fatal damage to the lens reader itself. The plan is to open the Xbox and clean it all up on the inside. I will be bringing my console to the usual game location this Saturday so we can get this all done! At the moment all I can do is read data off of a USB drive and play Fable II since it was downloaded on my drive. I hope to remedy this situation soon so I can play again!
Now for the bad news. I have gained back some of the weight that I lost. I have gained four pounds back due to overeating and not counting my calories. I am putting my foot down and starting from square one! There shall be no more than 1800 calories in my system every day. I will be satisfied with only 1500, but NO MORE THAN 1800!! At the time of this post, I have had 1090 calories. I will be dining with my girlfriend tonight; low cal. for Alex! I am making corn beef hash and eggs–very low cal.
In September I will get a membership to Planet Fitness. Now I can go to the gym five days a week for hours on end! It is a 24 hour gym so all I need to worry about is my curfew and transportation costs. I am so stoked. Gamaken will be working out there as well so I will have a spotter. Since I stopped lifting with my father, I have needed a strong person to spot me! Belly be gone I say!
This Saturday I went to a birthday party for Ferg, Gamaken, and his son. It was great fun!
I am in the process of moving to a new apartment. I am very excited about this! All excited feelings aside, moving really does bite the big one. I have packed up so many boxes it’s not even funny. The good thing is I don’t have to unpack my boxes right away after I move; I can take my time and take a few days instead of go-go-going and do the dirty deed in one day. The hard part will be cleaning and moving furniture. I am hoping to get this all done in one day with the help of my parents. Hopefully it won’t take more than six to eight hours breaks permitting.
I found an old friend of mine on Facebook. We met in the 5th grade and graduated together. I lost touch with him shortly after high school. He went to Mizzou and some university in Madrid, Spain. I sent him a friend request; I hope he remembers me!
I am almost done with Naruto. I am very curious as to what happens to Orochimaru and his mysterious gang of sound ninjas. Oops, I hope I didn’t spoil anything there! I am on episode 140 out of 220. I tend to knock out 12-15 episodes every Sunday as part of my lazy Sunday schedule. Not this Sunday, though, I have to finish moving! I will post another round as soon as I am settled in. Pics will be shown!
Spring is almost here! There are only fifteen days of old man winter remaining. Of course there still may be some winter left. A few years ago there was a pretty decent snow storm in May. There was also a massive EF-5 tornado on May 22, 2011. So who knows what kind of “spring” we will have here in J-Town! The seasons here are as such: Winter for five months, Spring for a month, Summer for five months, then Fall for a month. Talk about a big diversity! The temperature reached 60 today; it will be around 51 on Tuesday and 44 on Wednesday. Then the temperature will rise again! It is no wonder why this winter has been hard on people with weak immune systems. Pneumonia, bronchitis and the flu have run rampant throughout most of the United States.
A good chunk of the states will get more daylight on March 11. Don’t forget to switch your clocks one hour ahead! Personally I hate DST. All it does is make me lose an hour of sleep. Sure, it is nice to have more sunshine and all, but I want my sleep, dammit! I checked out Flyleaf, by Flyleaf. I rented a copy from the library. Of course I will put a copy for my own purpose!
Happy New Year everyone~
I was at a kid’s birthday party when I saw an old friend of mine. He is selling his used 1TB Xbox One for $100. We agreed to make split payments; $50 up front and $50 the following month. I will have the first $50 sometime in the following weeks and will pick the system up. I will then pay him the remaining $50 the following month. It sure pays to have friends from over a decade to built trust! I am so excited!
Hanukkah is still going on—day six; Saturday night was the big celebration in the household. There was tons of food to be eaten! There was matza balls, latkes, hummus, cheese, green beans, and much more! There were around twenty to twenty four people in this tiny household. After the food and drink, there were gifts. I scored a huge gift card for Amazon.com. I had a great time visiting my family, it’s a shame that I only get to visit every six months to a year at a time!
I know I said that I would wait until January to see Episode VIII, but my Aunt and Uncle wanted to see it this weekend. I absolutely loved it. It kept you on your seat for a good chunk. The ending was okay I guess. I won’t spoil anything for those that actually read this blog and haven’t seen it yet.
