Bored with it all  
09:18pm 06/05/2009

Bored with it all; how can I put this with out making it sound like I need to be put on drugs?

Right now it seems like life is going nowhere, I go to work I come home I go to the gym I come home I go to work…nothing extra, its like I am on a broken record. Nothing to look forward to at work and nothing to look forward to when I get home (yes I could use the ‘brainwashed’ line of I get to see Jim at the end of the day sorry but that’s a given). The only real sanctuary I have away from everyone and everything is the gym; and I’ve tried numerous times to get Jim to join but all I get is a no, so its became my time my hobby that it seems like everyone could careless about. Just like it seems my opinions don't carry weight around here; nor have I found my niche in his family most the time it seems like I am just there along for the ride and to try and block out their ‘talking’ which is really screaming/yelling at the top of your lungs cause that’s how they were raised to be heard.

Don't have anyone I consider a friend; yes I have coworkers and they are just that coworkers; people I talk to online go no farther then that; which leaves the in-laws to be considered friends which personally is a joke cause I need away from them at times and people of my own. Where I don't have to get permission to change or work on my truck-  which it seems like I have to do w/ his uncle were staying with-or almost anything else.

Any creative force I had in writing is gone my sim and book are on hold till that all comes back. I tried plucking at the guitar the other day and it felt as if I was going through the motions I wasn’t really into it.

I work for the weekends; which leaves the weekdays blurs, but like it matters I don't do anything of merit on the weekend anyways.

It just seems like life is stalled and the longer I sit here the more retched it becomes.

Guess I’ll end it there or I’ll just keep rambling till tomarrow.

Absolutely loved it and worth waiting to go see. It follows much of what i thought and much i read on Wolverine before the movie came out.
Definatly go see.
As my personal tradition with superhero movies; wore my Batman shirt making this the third or forth.

Is there hope?  
08:41pm 13/11/2008
IS there a cure for HIV/AIDs?
When I came home from work and gym Jim gave me the news of a man in Berlin that was cured. So is there light on the horizon? We hope...no we pray that there is an end in sight.
Heres the story
