Potential Pushbacks

I know I said that I’d wait till I moved to post, but I can’t wait!

So much has been going on in my life as of late. If you are a regular reader of this blog, you will know that I am supposed to move out on August 14th. Things may or may not have changed. At this moment I am waiting on a staff meeting to go over the rules and regulations one more time so I know what is going on and what is expected of me. I also have to wait for a crimiinal background check. If these things do not happen before this Friday, the 11th, I may not move on next Monday as expected. Not all is lost however, even if the move gets pushed back from its original date, that gives me time to prepare for it even more. This also gives me time to enjoy my life without a curfew; to hang with my friends a lot more and have greater freedoms. When I move in I will be on a lockdown for a full 30 days. I can only leave my apartment for food, doctor visits and group outings such as going to the gym. I also don’t know if my friends can come and visit me at my apartment rather than me going out to see them. It is getting very confusingi to me as to how the curfew relates to things such as group. I am supposed to put at least 20 hours a week with PSR groups (Psycho Social Rehab.), volunteering and work at a job. Yes, the program that I will soon be a part of will maybe help me look into further employment as time marches on.

At least I think that is how it is supposed to happen. I may be wrong, this is why I will have to go over the rules and guidelines–my questions will be answered then. I need this all done before I move in, I don’t want to start on a bad foot and get in trouble the instant I move in! I am finding it more difficult to fall asleep now a days; I am just getting so excited to move in to my brand new apartment. I will make new friends I am sure; I may even make a few enimies (I hope not!). I was in a similar program when I was 21 and on my own. I graduated the program and had all restructions removed. This included, but did not limit, my curfew, being able to stay out all night and was not forced to be in your own apartment during certain hours. After graduation I could even be purely nocternal. Life sure was great back then. I will conquer this new program and be free again! Now I leave this blog to relax and start packing in the next few days. I am hungry now, must eat! じゃね~

Movin’ on up; to the Free Side!

I have some great news! After many years of living with my loving, annoying parents, I get to move out on my own (again). When I was 20, I had a pretty damn sweet apartment setup and was loving my life. Things went south a bit, and I had to give it up and move back in with my parents. Eight years later I get to have another shot. On August 14th, I will be moving out to a similar apartment program.

I will be living on a tight budget, but it is nothing that I can’t get used to. There will be new rules for me to follow but I will be strong! I will be getting rid of cable TV and eating lightly, but like I said earlier, I will endure! I have many games and moveies to watch and play. The program is by no means easy, but it is doable. When I was out at 20, I went thru a similar program!

I’m movin’ on up!

Claiming Independent Gaming

I hope everyone had a good holiday! I went to a pool party slash bonfire on the 1st. We didn’t shoot off any fireworks that night, though. I did hang out with some friends on July 4th to shoot off some fire boomers. I spent about four to five hours hanging with my friend, Kyle, and his kin. The good part is that clean up was a breeze; the fireworks were not only shot in the street but the fact that since it was not your own home you could skate a bit off the cleaning job :-).

I don’t know if I mentioned it or not, but I started playing TERA again. I re-familiarized myself with my 65 sorcerer and am as deadly as ever on it. I also started a slayer named Pewf; he is level 39, almost 40, at the time of this post. I haven’t played my level 60 warrior yet, but plan on it tonight or tomorrow. I am doing every single zone quest out there. This includes backtracking to the low level areas to catch up. Even though I am hitting all of these areas, I am still levelling up at a pretty decent pace. I am still waiting for Ferg to catch up :p.

Return Trip and More Java

I spent my last day in Kansas City, MO. in the pool. Five hours in the pool with no sunscreen. I have a pretty good size sunburn; most of it is on my shoulders and back. I swam 40 laps and played a bunch of water polo. It was glorious fun! I figure that it had better be fun——I spent $10 for a entrance fee!

I got a big bag of comic books from my cousin and her husband. I have no idea how many are in the bag, but it has to be more than 50! Means I need to expand my database…

I finished my password generator program in Java. I found my old book from high school from my ap programming class. I am going to re-read it in hopes that Java will come back to me. I need to relearn the concepts of OOP. My password program consists of three classes plus the main one, “Passwords.java”. I made a GitHub account to post my stuff on. There is only one on it at the moment, my generator. I hope people find it useful. I posted the source and the bin files. If you need help in running, or compiling the program, let me know on Facebook, IRC, or e-mail and I will help. The source is here, and the binary files are here. Enjoy!

WW1 Museum

Went to a World War I museum today; here are some pics.
