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!!

Lets go Bruins!!

Bring home the cup!!

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.

Sick

Sick of Fake People

Sick of Liars

Sick of Deniers

Sick of people who make plans and break them

Sick of being Single

Sick of being sick

Life is full of choices, however happiness seems far away at the moment, but I have my eye on someone.

She probably has no idea I am interested in her

Fear of rejection holds me back.

Vacation is a week, a long week,

However fear will be overcome once I return, pop the question and move on with or without, still friends forever!!

What If

You can ask yourself a million questions, but the question that gets the best reaction is the question of "What If" because it has an endless amount of possibilities.

When I broke up with my gf in 2010, I moved back home and onward with my life. I look back on what could have been or what could be now.

What if I didn't break up with her? Would we still be together? Would I be happy? Would I be where I am right now? Better or worse?

Its possible that we could have been married by now and happily ever after, but there was no connection or interest. We each had our own interests and what she hated, I liked. Its sad that she wasn't into sports as much as I am. Sports give you something to do, to aim for, to accomplish, to enjoy, besides some fake pre-determined soap opera.

In 2007, the Redsox won the World Series. I think I only saw part of Game 1 and all of Game 4.

In 2008, the Celtics won the NBA Championship, missed the entire series except for part of a game I watched from a bar at Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut.

Life goes on.

I was more outgoing, going to stores and restaurants almost every other day, now I rarely go anywhere.

We went to the beach plenty of times, haven't gone since then.

On a plus side, I've saved a shitload of money by living at home and saving and saving, but for what? For myself? To be alone?

In September of 2011 her Mom passed away to cancer and age. She moved back home with her dad and the apartment was gone for good. Something I could have had as my own, but I didn't take it. Looking back, its possibly my biggest regret since then, living alone, a place of my own, and MY OWN place.

Its sad to think what could have been and what would have been, but sometime in the future, there will be a change and what will be will be instead of what could be could be!!

Music

Music makes you think.

It could be fast and have a great beat, it could be slow and simple.

It could be instrumental, dance, electronica, or any other kind without words.

But whatever it is, music makes you think.

I can listen to anything with or without words . . . but a good beat and understandable words (sometimes) make it worthwhile.

Japanese, Chinese, and Asian music sounding music always puts me in my happy place.

Everyday gets better than the next.

Another day, more new music.

Onward!!

Ultimate Warrior

Its sad to see a legend who I grew up watching and idolizing pass away.

Through the years, Warrior and the WWE had not been on the best of terms, but over the past year, the hatchet was buried and things got better for both.

Warrior was amazing, a body built up on steroids, but still, a great body indeed.

At 10-15, I used to pretend I was the Warrior in the bathroom and socks pulled up as high as I could. I never had any face paint, so I couldn't go that far, but did tie strings on my arms like he had for most of his career.

Its fun to look back at the way things were, growing up as a child believing wrestling was real.

From his epic Intercontinental Championship win at Summerslam 1988, to his feud with Rick Rude and Bobby Heenan.

Survivor Series 1989 captain vs Andre the Giant's team

The Hogan vs Warrior spot after they eliminated everyone at the 1990 Royal Rumble.

Wrestlemania VI champion vs champion in the Skydome in Toronto.

Summerslam 1990 in the steel cage match vs Rick Rude

Survivor Series 1990 with the Texas Tornado and The Legion of Doom vs Mr Perfect and Demoliton, Warrior being the sole survivor to go to the final match of Survival with Hogan and Tito Santana vs The Milion Dollar Man, The Warlord, The Model Rick Martel, and Power and Glory. To win and survive with Hogan.

Royal Rumble 1991 losing the title in a rare loss to Sgt. Slaughter who had help from Macho Man Randy Savage.

The Career Ending match at Wrestlemania VII

The scary moments in March 1991 when The Undertaker locked the Warrior in a casket during a Funeral Parlor segment.

The "Trust Me" saga with Jake The Snake Roberts

The Match Made in Hell at Summerslam 1991 with Hogan vs Slaughter, Iron Sheik and Adnan.

After Summerslam, Warrior was fired for demanding more money.

At Wrestlemania VIII Warrior returned to aid Hulk Hogan who at the time was retiring and being beaten by Sid and Papa Shango.

The Voodoo curse from Papa Shango on Superstars where the Warrior threw up. - I think this was scarier than the Casket incident.

Summerslam 1992 in Wembly Stadium running for what seemed like forever with the long long entrance way.

A Match that never happened at Survivor Series 1992 was Savage and Warrior vs Ric Flair and Razor Ramon
- Again, Warrior got greedy and wanted more money.

Thought to be gone for good, 1996 rolls around and the WWE was bring back stars from the past to enhance its product. Jake The Snake returned, and at Wrestlemania XII Warrior returned and squashed a young HHH in seconds.

At In Your House Good Friends Better Enemies, it was the end of an era. It was Diesel and Razor Ramon's last WWE PPV, but Warrior pounded Goldust, got DQed and could have been Intercontinental Champion again.

May and June were recked with missed appearances and eventually Warrior was fired for a 3rd time.

A trainwreck 2 months in WcW in 1998 vs Hogan and the nWo was inbetween.

Turns out this would be the end of him in the WWE til the Video game released in 2013, but his appearance at the Hall of Fame, Wrestlemania XXX, and Raw the night after.

After watching countless youtube videos of the Hall of Fame, Wrestlemania, and his Raw return, I thought all was well and Warrior was back in the WWE under a legends contract to appear sporatically when needed, but during the speech he gave on Raw Monday, it was evident after watching it a 2nd time there was a hidden meaning.

The Ultimate Warrior died Tuesday afternoon. I woke up this morning to post after post on every news site, website, tv, and internet place.

Its been 10 hours since I woke up and saw the news, but its hard to make it sink in because it doesn't feel right. It seems impossible that someone who was having a great time the night before was now DEAD.

I'm shocked, but his career was memorable in more ways than one and he'll always be remembered forever!!
