WowEE! It has been over a year since my last post, and that really is a long time! Too long!! I don't really like making lots of news posts because it makes each post seem to not have as much value or something like that! Oh, and I always feel like I have to make the post somewhat long. SO HERE IS SOMETHING TO CHEW ON!
One year ago I was doing pretty much what I'm doing now. My dad is still in a comatose state-he is definitely doing a whole lot better, but he hasn't made it to the point of being completely aware/conscious. I get to see my dad every day, and I am very thankful that I'm able to. Even though each day seems to be the same routine, it's great that I can see him.
It's kind of weird how he has been working-he stopped moving his thumbs like he used to for a while, but he started improving with his eyes. He used to not really follow you if you walked around the room, but now he will watch you if you move or go to do something around him. Lately he has started moving his fingers again, and he really seems to be in a MUCH different state than he was a year ago. I saw a video that we recorded of him around October '08, and I was amazed at how much he has improved since just then. You don't really notice all of the changes when you take it step by step.
Anyway, things are doing so much better, and I am extremely happy at how far he has come. Let's just see where things go from here! :)
~ Now we will explore my very interesting life that I have led!!!!!!! ~
Hmmm, I guess the first thing I will go over is school. My junior year didn't come anywhere near as fun as my sophomore (or my freshman year to be honest). It wasn't bad, but it just wasn't anything special! The majority of my friends went to a different school because a new one was built, and the dividing lines were perfect TO SEPARATE US ;_; I still knew a bunch of the kids, but I really wasn't close to any of them.
I took an IT class, so I got to leave campus for the first half of every day of school. IT was a pretty fun class, and I got to see some people from other schools that I hadn't seen for a while. The class was also pretty easy and laid-back, so it was a great way to begin each day. The latter half of my days consisted of American Literature (a TOTAL joke of a class), algebra II, American Citizen and biology. All of my classes were easy for the most part, and I had no trouble keeping an A in each class.
I didn't do too much out of school because of the lack of time from visiting my dad and all, but here and there I would hang out with some friends. Some super times 4sure!!
LET'S TALK 'BOUT SUM MUSIC! So my older brother and I started an acoustic folk-punk band (or whatever you would call one person playing guitar with someone else singing). We have two new recordings of older songs on our myspace, and we have our 5-song demo downloadable here for free. Once we finish our album, we will be releasing it for free as well-so like wait k!!!!
I have been listening to a lot of Wingnut Dishwashers Union (Last.fm) and Andrew Jackson Jihad (Last.fm). They both recently released new albums, and they are FANTASTIC! Or actually, much much much better than that!! You should check them both out!
Of course I have been listening to other music as well! Which you can look through here. If you are looking for some new tunes, I would be glad to recommend you some stuff!
Since my last post, I have seen:
Ghost Mice with Heathers (amazing show! It was a super great time! jewdudewtf came along too!)
Smoking Popes (I am sooo happy I got to see them! They put on quite a show!)
Danzig with a bunch of other bands I didn't care about (The show was alright. Danzig didn't do anything special EVEN THOUGH IT WAS HALLOWEEN YO)
Morrissey (It was my second time seeing him, and he definitely still has it! jewdudewtf came along to this show too! We came home with a piece of Morrissey's shirt, handshakes/hand-touches and a signed vinyl (well it's my brother's :P). YES!)
Yeah Yeah Yeahs (They aren't a FAVORITE band of mine, but they are still really good. Their performance was spectacular. The only problem was the hipster crowd, but I mean, what can you do? ;P)
jewdudewtf, my brother and I were planning on seeing Wingnut Dishwashers Union, but either he never showed up, or we didn't stay late enough. The show was at a park, and we were supposed to play kickball before the show. No one ever came :((((((( We still managed to have a good time doing other things that day though, so OH WELL.
As for HarryJarry.com, I'm not SUPER far into the whole redesign thing, but I've been making some more progress here and there. Simon has been working on new levels for HJ. They look supa dupa sexy, so go look at them and drool your days away!!! I have been making small updates to the current layout and doing some additional coding for some pages, so that is something! Hopefully I can get some real motivation to really start coding again. I haven't felt too inspired lately, but maybe I will get an edge on it and just start! We can hope!
I am really trying to become much more active than I have been (on NG as well as other sites-oh, and AIM too!!!!). I posted like a BUNCH the other day, so that's cool! There were some rockin' topics that day! SO SEE YOU AROUND! HOPE YOU ALL ARE HAVING A WONDERFUL SUMMER CUZ U REALLY SHOULD! LUV U ALL!!!!!!!!!
WHAT I LISTENED TO IN THE PROCESS OF WRITING THIS:
Pre-writing: Man Is The Bastard and Smoking Popes

bye bye now!!!
oh, and here is a pic of jewdudewtf and me!!!! We are really happy, so you should be happy too!!
