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!
So today was leg day at the gym. Well more like chest, delt, tricep and leg day. My chest feels fine as of now, but my delts and triceps are feeling it. My legs and glutes are especially cooked at this moment. I can’t wait until tomorrow when it hurts to sit on the toilet and poop! I had to climb some stairs around an hour after my workout… total pain ensued. I totally hate leg day, but I have to if I want my leg press and squat to go up. I couldn’t do bench press today because NOBODY knows how to spot in that God forsaken gym I go to… I am switching gyms soon. I had to use the “chest press” machine. I prefer free weights unless it’s something like lat pull down or leg press. My favorite exercises are bench press, lat pull down and deadlift. I stopped lifting for a few years; I am slowly getting my strength back. In high school I maxed 405 pounds on bench press; worked out 5×5 with 335 pounds.
My girlfriend, A, and I are binging the Saw series. We are about to start 4 soon. We like horror movies :). I am also getting into Paper Mario, Ocarina of Time and Final Fantasy XV!
I went swimming today and the water was so fucking cold! The past few times I went in the pool at the gym, the water was an ambient 80 to 85 degrees. The water clocked in at around 40 degrees today! I was going to lift weights but the pool looked so appetizing and the smell was intoxicating. The last time I felt water this cold was in Sugar Creek in our old camping spot. One person got in the pool for about two minutes before the cold was too much for him to handle. I swim breast stroke because it works out my upper body muscles something pretty fierce. I feel like I spent an hour lifting weights just from swimming!
Speaking of lifting weights, I plan on getting a membership at a new gym–one that I can actually afford! It is called Planet Fitness; it is a 24 hour gym with a ton of equipment. The distance is a bit hard to go, but it will be well worth it!
I am rebuilding my comic book database AGAIN. I will not make an excel sheet; I will make a graphic visualation instead. I don’t have an eta on when it will be done.
I have been quite the busy body today. I got up at 9am sharp, got cleaned up, then hit the town. I got on the trolley, rode for 45 minutes to my stop and picked up some cab coupons. With $160 of cab fare in my hand, I waited another 25 minutes for the same trolley to come back around. I rode it back to the hill below my apartment and sweated my butt off as I climbed said hill.
When I got home I popped in some Blue Collar Comedy and spent a few hours laughing my rear end off. Then I played some Ocarina of Time and killed time until a meeting at 4. After the meeting, I spent some time with Ferg watching “Whose Line is it Anyway?”.
Back at my apartment I shaved my beard in the style of a goatee due to request. After I did that and ate dinner I made a new wallpaper; Naruto style! It is of a young Kakashi. I put it on my deviant art account. You can get to it via my contact information page. I may be updating the look of my blog sometime in the future! Here is a small preview of my newly made wallpaper!
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!
