I want to know God. I want to make movies with a lot of bad words in them. I want to write essays on abnormal psycholology that aren't biased. I want to live in an anarcho-capitalist society. I want to write books about God that piss off uptight Christians. I want to learn from the mistakes of history. I want to try to figure out what makes people tick. I want to wear clown makeup and sing and read poetry. I want to philosophize. I want to be enveloped in music and art. I want to see people appreciate the free market. I want to think about things.
I want to be myself. I want to be Righteous.

Wow. I haven't started a topic in a long-ass time.
Anyway, my brother's girlfriend Becca moved in. Like officially. The basic story is that she was living in Pennsylvania with her parents (she and my brother met through our cousins) and was having some health problems were taking their toll oh her emotionally and mentally. Rick was gonna go visit her last weekend, but couldn't for a number of reasons. Becca then decided to visit here, but soon after a family fight ensued, so she asked if she could stay with us for a little while (she's wanted to move here for a while). We decided to go a step further and have her move in with us.
She still has to get a lot of her stuff from her parents' house, but she's pretty set in. She'll be going to UNF with me and Rick in the fall and we're hoping to get in-state tuition (probably won't happen, but hey). She's really cool and she gets along with everyone (Gabrielle loves her). I'm really happy about this and Rick's as happy as a pig in poo.
Wish us all luck, and pray for her if you will. She still has a lot of crap to go through and we're still all settling in.

There are some really emotional songs out there that can help/cause someone shed a tear. What are yours?
I have a few. Pearl Jam's "Jeremy" and their cover of "Last Kiss" have made me cry (especially "Last Kiss"). Cold's "Sad Happy" has made me cry a few times. There was a time when for some reason, I couldn't go through Live's "Lightning Crashes" without weeping. When I have to cry but can't, I put on "Epiphany" by Staind (any Staind album will suffice, but that song gets me). "Carry On" by Burn Season made me cry literally once or twice (EDIT: make that three times and probably everytime I listen to it from now on). Hell, there was a time when I couldn't cry without listening to "Eva" by Orgy.
I sound so gay.
Anyway, how about y'all?

Happy Thanksgiving, y'all!
Does anyone have any plans? Mine include dealing with Rick (he says I'm bullshitting, but I really do lose the urge to clean when he PMSes on me) then eating food with my family (the six of us and maybe some others) and my friend Alan at like fourish.
Alan, Rick and I have an evil plan. Alan's family eats rediculously early and about the time they're finishing up, we're starting, so he come over here to eat. After that, Alan, Rick and I are going to our friend's mom's place because they eat much later than we do. Yeah, I know it's bad, but it's tasty.
So yeah, for those of you who celebrate it, what are y'all doing?

I mentioned this in the Petty Complaints thread last night, but I'll go into it more deeply. I was at work yesterday (I lay pipe for a gas company) and was using a pickaxe to get through some hard ground. At one point, I lifted the pickaxe and felt my back go out. It hurt bad. The only reason I stayed on the job was because we had two new guys and needed supervision. I came home, took some ibuprophen and took it easy thinking I'd be all right today (I've been hurt before and figured it would follow suit). I woke up in more pain than I was the night before.
I'm going to the doctor tomorrow, but I already know what he's going to tell me: I can't work construction anymore. THis is the worst time I hurt my back by far. I know that if I keep going, I'll just hurt my back again and again and again and again. Now, this may not seem like much to y'all, but I've been working construction since I was thirteen. It's pretty much all I know. I'm a skilled laborer who can stand working outside or inside in the heat and the cold and I'm good at what I do. Not only this, but I had my job through my family's business, which means a lot to our household (especially since it's the only time I get to spend with my father).
Another thing that's been getting me is my family's whole "stiff upper lip" mentality. My old man tells me to "tough it out," my brother ridicules me for wanting crutches, and apparently my mother thinks ibuprophen cures everything and it's okay for me to skip school so I can lounge about and wait until tomorrow (something I wouldn't expect from her). I figure that if I'm in severe pain my most loved ones might have some sympathy. I guess I was wrong.
I know I need something new until I finish university and start a "real" career. That's not my primary concern, though; my health is. Please pray for my mobility, the pain I'm in and the hope that I won't need surgery. I hope all things work out for the best.
Thanks, you guys.

Now, my brother (pictured left) plays drums for a band called Cry of Crete. I'm not just saying this, but they're really, really good. They recently got a chance to play in the Bodog Battle of the Bands, which is a nation-wide contest consisting of several rounds. I am very proud of them and think they can go far (the grand prize is a $1 million record contract, which includes guaranteed release in the US, Canada and Europe).
They will be playing the first round at the Orpheum in Tampa on the 23rd of this month. If you are in the general area please come to see them. They need your support. check out their MySpace page and Bodog's website for more details (and to give a listen; "Little Red Sin" is my favorite).
Also, if you live in the area and want to help me promote, your ticket's on me. Gimme your adress and I'll hook you up with flyers (I'm the head of the street team) and see if their PR girl has any MySPace banners or anything.
