Another Day - November 13, 2014

When you wake up each morning, you do it with a purpose, to have fun, and accomplish something each day.

Last nights Bruins game was horrible. It shows how the injuries have finlly added up, and the Bruins lucky wins over crappy teams ran out. Toronto came to play last night and I was impressed by Phil Kessel and the game he played last night. His struggles vs Chara was well documented, but without Chara, he ran wild.

Rask might be tired, hopefully he gets rested tonight and comes back ready to battle Saturday afternoon vs Carolina, but we'll have to wait and see what lies ahead in tonights game. Does he start or does he rest.

Every game gets better and better, hopefully the Bruins find themselves and win tonight!!

Buffalo Sabres at St. Louis Blues - November 11, 2014

So last night, my Boston Bruins were off and I was flipping channels looking for something to watch. Usually I have a dislike for Western Conference teams because I don't know anyone because the Eastern Conference plays them so little each season.

NBC Sports had the Sabres at Blues game at 8pm, I decided to watch it and call it a night. It was a great game. Last season the only Blues players I knew were Sobatka (Former Bruin) and Steve Ott and Ryan Miller (From a Buffalo trade).

This game was fun, and had some decent scuffles, fights, and blood, everything hockey is known for. With fighting being pushed out of the game, the brawls were impressive, one caused by a late hit after the whistle to Ennis and another in the 3rd.

The Schwartz, Lehtera, Tarasenko line was very impressive. Lehtera had a hat trick, doubling his season's goal total.

Great game, I've gotten into the Western Conference teams now, its still hockey, just later at night.

I picked up Lehtera in my fantasy tem after watching this game, Tarasenko and Schwartz were already picked up earlier in the season by others in my league.

Hockey makes the world go round.

Tonight, its Boston Bruins at Toronto Maple Leafs. Always fun when these 2 teams get together, even better tomorrow night when the Montreal Canadiens play Boston!!

Hockey is life!!

Bruins Defensemen - November 11, 2014

When you look through the season, there have been many ups and downs with the Boston Bruins defensemen, In thr rough sport of hockey, injuries can make or break teams, but its how you deal with them, pick up, and move on that makes your team stronger.

When Miller went out with the shoulder injury, it was ok, we had Bartkowski. When Chara went out with his leg issue, everyon threw up there hands and thought the season was over. Due to what I feel (right now) was a bad trade sending Boychuk to the Islanders for 2 draft picks before the season opener, Boychuk has had a great seasn for the Islanders, but he got injured as well.

So today on the ice of Bruins practice, they had 8 D skating. Krug's hand issues seem to be resolved. Seidenberg and McQuaid are leading the team with Hamilton growing and evolving into a better player every game. Trotman and Morrow have filled in perfectly. Warsofsky did well too, but he injured his groin and will most likely be sent away once he is healthy.

When your team works as a team and everyone does there part, you reach the next level and find a way to win. Its going to be a tough stretch of games this week, Bruins play 4. They beat the New Jersey Devils last night, and tomorrow they go to Canad to play Toronto and Montreal in back to back nights before there first afternoon Saturday game at 1pm vs the Carolina Hurricanes.

Never forget the Seth Griffith goal last night, it reminds me of a better version of the Benoit Poilout threw the legs puck moving goal he had a few years ago!!

Win Win Win!!

Bruins Win 4-2 over the Senators November 1st, 2014

So last night, the day after Halloween, I sat on the couch and watched the Bruins play a game at home vs the Ottawa Senators.

Pre-game there was a fitting video tribute to former Boston Mayor Tom Menino who passed away from cancer earlier during the week.

The game had a damper feel to it,with Chara, Miller, and Krug all out due to injuries, Marchand playing with "something tweeked" it was tough when they said Krejci was a last minute scratch. The injuries are adding up, quickly and painfully.

When you look through history of the Bruins, there was the epic "fight night" game vs the Dallas Stars on November 1st, 2008 that will be solidified as one of the best games I ever watched. Hockey, fights, and a win . . . perfection at its finest!!

The game vs Ottawa went smoothly. I expected a loss from the banged up Bruins, but Fraser provided a much needed spark and boost the team needed. Marchand continued his current hot streak with a goal, and Fraser put 2 in the net.

3rd period defense is lackluster and its painful to watch, especially since we lost a 2 goal lead game earlier this season.

The Bruins luck out, only 2 games this week, one vs former Bruin Shawn Thornton and his Florida Panthers, and the other vs Andrew Ference and his Edmonton Oilers. Thornton will get a huge ovation Tueday night in his first game back vs Boston since leaving in the offseason.

The schedule gets tougher with 4 games the week after, so lets cross our fingers that Krejci is fine, Marchand gets stronger, the Bruins keep winning, and Krug comes back ASAP!!

Back for more

As the days go by, so to do the questions everyday.

Will there be a tomorrow?

Will I stay at my job?

Will I accept a promotion, demotion, or say fuck it and quit?

Everyday is the same, you wake up, go to work, have fun, go home, and enjoy the time off til the next day and repeat over and over.

Vacation again starting when I leave at 253pm Saturday.

The questions remain the same, the place of work remains the same,

But like I've said before, I'll re-say once again . . .

Tomorrow is another day!!

The End

Its tough when you have something bothering you, but your afraid to speak your mind and tell it like it is.

I love Livejournal because I can simply type and express my opinions in a language that is plain and simple to see, read, and understand.

Everyone has addictions, some worse than others.

My addictions aren't nearly as bad as other peoples, but still, an addiction is an addiction and too much of it is a bad thing.

When you don't know where to go, who to turn to, who to tell, or who to trust, its tough to decide which direction I should go in.

Its not about who you know or don't know, the truth is no one knows everything about someone.

Its not a game, its a lifestyle, its not funny, its serious.

When you look back through conversations with people from the past, you do see who is and who isn't a friend.

Its tough to sort through the shit, the good, the bad, the lies, the stories, the fun times, and the bad.

If they say its true that "Everything happens for a reason" is it worth giving up everything for a quick thrill??

When you've had enough of the bullshit that comes and goes from a person or group of people, you delete them and move on.

Its the toughest part of life when you have to make a decision and face the music.

Its always best when you don't care about the outcome, but instead the way it effects your future.

I've been offered a few jobs through the years, some good, some bad, and some I'd never ever go back to.

Its easy to look in the mirror and say this is right and this is wrong, but its easier to decide when your on the toilet and the shit flows where it belongs.

Just like flushing a toilet, there is a delete button that solves the problem and ignorance of the other person.

Its not that I don't like the person, I just fucking hate the person.

Whats worse is its a person I've known for a long time and thought I knew everything about them, but obviously I didn't.

Its not about feelings, because the past 4 month have been brutal. You weather the storm and hope things get better, but the person continues onward.

When enough is enough, its the breaking point, the point of no return.

Some people have direction and goals in their life, but lately I've fallen off course and couldn't figure out which way I wanted to go, but now I see it.

When one offer comes, its pretty cut and dry, everyone has a price, and if the price is right, do it, move on, and take the ball and run with it.

I was offered to become a grocery manager, a job that pays well, but comes with baggage and horseshit headaches and drama.

5 years ago, I probably would have taken the job because it was stress free, simple, and easy. but now, its different.

When I was part time 14 years ago, I was surrounded by my friends, or so I thought I was. As time went on, people left, they went onto bigger better things.

I stayed behind because it was an easy job, easy money, and stress free.

In 2002, I had my first battle with a guy at work, a guy who single handedly changed my life. We had a face to face war or words in front of the store manager.

Since then, I changed my ways, and spent the past 10 years kicking ass, cleaning house, and doing everything in my power to keep a sinking ship afloat.

In 2013, headaches began, more paper work, more of the "do it by the book" bullshit, and more paper work.

I don't give 2 shit about paper work. I signed up to throw food on shelves, not write papers and numbers on clipboards for no one to read.

So I've been on vacation for 1 week, every 3 weeks, and as I approach the mid-point of this 3rd week of vacation, I wonder how much longer I'll stay there.

Everyone knows tension is rising, sales are sinking, and people say things about other people that people make up.

Just remember the past is the past, but you have used it all for what its worth, a simple learning period, to better yourself for the future and next step.

Its to the point where I am simply waiting for a reason to quit or walk out. I've met a lot of great people through the years and wonder how much longer I'll go on.

Life is about being happy, doing what makes you happy, and surrounding yourself with happy people. Everyone I work with is great, but management sucks.

Corporate sucks. Management sucks, the place is a zoo and things are being done backwards and dumbly.

Why should I do 2 jobs when someone else is paid 40 hours a week to put up less than 600 pieces a week???

Change comes when I get back, it'll be swift and quick because my attitude has changed and it's going to be just like old times, where its all about ME!!

I'll be going back to my roots, having fun 24-7, laughing with my friends there, and enjoying the time we have left together!!

When you disagree with upper management and corporation views, its not a healthy environment to work in.

Tomorrow is another day . . . life for today, worry about tomorrow tomorrow!!

Another Day

Everyday starts and goes as planned.

Some people do what some people do,

Some people turn towards those who have all the answers.

Unfortunately, today, I didn't have the answers.

But atleast I went there and made an effort and showed the boss what I did.

Its out of my hands now. Good luck on getting it fixed.

The Best

The best is when you do all that you can do

You feel numb, spent, and full.

You've reached your goal and everything you wanted.

You do the right things and make the right moves.

You own the sky,

You own the world,

You are the master of your own domain and all within.

You can do anything.

You conquer all tasks and challenges set before you.

You can do no wrong.

Life is full of choices, the choice to stay or go is by far the worst choice of all, but the choice of choices.

Based on the way things are going, nothing lasts forever.

Change comes from within.

Do what is best. Make your move!!

5th Grade Camping Trip

Growing up, it was a right of passage, an end of an era, The annual 5th grade field trip from Elementary School. It was a 3 night 4 day adventure in Maine, at Old Orchard Beach. It was a time to spend together before graduation. 4 classes all from the same school. appox 90-100 students.

The time was fun. 3 buses, lots of songs and relaxing on the way. It was about a 3 hour ride.

We got room assignments before hand, I was with Tony, Ernest, Derek, John, and Chas.

It was fun, were all in the room waiting to go out, we all having fun, relaxing. Everyone was comfortable, enjoying the time, having fun, I just wanted it to end. The night comes, we all get ready for bed, everyone is sleeping in just shorts, not me, I was the shy one who would go to the bathroom and change.

The next morning, we get ready to go, I get changed quickly in the bathroom, shy, not wanting to be seen.

We do are activities and adventures, and its the last night there.

Were sitting at the beach, not allowed to swim, not allowed to go in the water, but we sit there as a class listening to the teacher's lectures.

Its getting late, past sunset and the sky begins to darken, the sky is nice, the stars as beautiful, as we head back.

Since 3rd grade, I had a crush on a girl named Kristen. I signed her cast during recess once when she broke her leg on the tire swing.

In 4th grade we did a praying mantis project together and got an A+

We became great friends throughout the time there, and on the walk back, she put her arm around me. She caught me off guard and I didn't know what to do or say, but looking back, I enjoyed it and wished something became of it. You look back on moments that could have changed your life for the better, and there is no doubt that the way I handled her hug could have been better.

Instead of smiling and embracing it, I brushed her off and ran ahead of the pack going back.

One of those moments in time you remember forever. A lot could have changed during the trip, had I slept shirtless like everyone else I'd be more open and enjoy my body more, and had I smiled and hugged Kristen back during the walk back, we'd still be friends to this day.

Instead . . . nothing. Nothing came of anything from that trip in June of 1993.
