Damn.  Long time no talk.

Heh, seriously though?  December 18th, 07!?  Christ.  I wonder what happened...?  Oh well, it'll come to me.

So, what's new?  You'd be surprised...  Well, maybe not, depending on how much you know about me.

Nothing.

Yup.  Nothing.  Well, not nothing, but it may as well be.

Since I stopped writing, I starting the working world.  Yeah I know, who knew?  For a while I started working at A & W (Juneish 08 - November 08).  It was pretty sweet, what with working with Jesse and Matt, it was pretty sweet.  Then I got fired.  Oh well, life goes on.  (All of you know the explanation anyways, so I won't go through it here)  Then I went and worked at Dairy Queen (December 08 - February 09).  It reopened, needed people, and I was there.  I was on top of the employee chain too.  Then I got fired.  Ha, oops, again?  Yeah, sucks.  Walking in minus 40 though, isn't my idea of fun...  So now, I started working at Searle Greenhouses.  I gotta say, it's pretty sweet.  I mean, nine bucks an hour to play in dirt and eat candy all day?  Heck yes!  (Although, it's a bit more complicated than that, it's literally what I did one day at work.)

So, that's the working world covered, and other than that, I think that's about it for catching up.  Heh.  For a year and a half, not alot...

Oooh!  School!

Which I'm not currently in...

While I was working at DQ, I was faced with a choice.  Work, or School...  I chose work.  Then they fired me.  Oops...

So, now I have to wait until September to go to the learning centre and get my Grade 12.  Sucks.  Maybe I shouldn't have failed in the first place...

I think I should rant about my problems with life right now, but it's almost 4:00am (Not like I'm sleeping anyways) and I think I'm going brain dead. (Thank god, maybe then I'll be able to sleep)  I don't think I have anything else to go over, aside from the little remedial things.  Eg, daily things, small changes and what not.

Oooh!  Today!

I went shopping!!!  Yay!

Bought a pretty kickin' sweater (really would have liked black) in white, and a new shirt.  It was sweet.  Also, got an external hard drive.  I think I'll have this one full soon enough.  Give or take a month.  (500 gigs, Jesus...  I don't need that much...)  Got it all set up easily, moved some crap around on the compy, and now space isn't an issue! 

Okay...  Now I think that's it...  I don't think I could think of anything else, aside from like, an hours worth of ranting about different things, but I think I'll leave that one for something more...  Human... 

Well, May 25th, at four in the morning.  That's a pretty big stretch.  I think I'll start using this a bit more, now that I've discovered it again...  Yay for not sleeping!! Fox Out...

Just Kidding...  But I had you going for a bit there.

So, whats new with Derek this time?  Well, you remember that little talk we had last post, about sorting things out with my room?  2 Days after that post, I gets myself a new computer!  Ha ha on the world.  It's pretty good too, but It won't run Doom 3...  Oh well, more RAM it is.  I recently got in touch with someone I haven't talked to in like, 2 and a half years.  That person would be my long lost cousin Erin.  It's almost like talking to the son you orphaned a while back.  Anyways, we talked, things were said, and we're talking on a regular basis (Well...  as regular as you can get with work and school and such...)  

I've got a problem with my computer now...  I need to run like, 50 feet of ethernet cable through my house to connect my router system.  That'll be fun...  Oh well, something for me to do in my spare time I guess...  If I could ever go and get Ethernet cable...

Um...  My postings are a bit off tonight...  Not really in a writing mood...  I feel too...  Down...  If I were to call it something...  Whatever, Fox out.

Winter!!!  Finally...  It seems like it's been almost a year without you...  (Wait, what...?)  Oh Nevermind...

Anyways, Winter, as I was saying.  The time for fooling around in the snow, and no I don't mean THAT fooling around...  Because that would be...  Um...  Cold...  To say the least...  And anyone who knows guys know that Guys and Cold do not mix...  lmao.

So, It's Winter, and Winter = Snow (Duh...) And Snow = Fun to beyond the funnest extent.  I'm talking about Sledding...  Yea, go ahead and laugh, I know, It may seem VERY Immature, but it's fun as hell when your a "Grown Up" which I was so elegantly called last year by some 8 year old who was on the same slope as me.  Like, wow...  Nice...

Also, Snow = Fun in the way of Snowmobileing...  Now that is freakin awesome, expecially when you tie toboggans to the back and have a fight to the death...  lmao.  I can't wait for that one to happen, Just gotta wait for my buddy to buy his, and since I'm the only one with a licence, guess who gets to drive it all the time...?  (For the win...)

I think I'm taking the Gaming thing to a whole new level...  I've been playing SOCOM US Navy SEALs: Combined Assault online every day for a week now...  I now have Shaw, for my computer, and MTS, for my bedroom.  Now I need a laptop, and I'm done.  lmao, That or a new computer...  That would be nice, then I'd never have to leave my room aside from sustanance, and the aftermath of sustanance.  (Gotta figure out a solution for those ones...  Probably Soon...)  (Should Go And Get A Computer soon...)

Completely off topic, but relavent none the less, Movies.  I Need to go see some.  One in particular...  A little movie called "The Golden Compass".  I want to go see that one for sure, but I don't wanna wait for it to hit the Garry, so someone get back to on this one.  I've asked some people and no one wants to go. Lmao.  Oh well, To each their own.

Ok, so I think that's it...  Everything is still same old same old aside from that, I think...  Oh, I need to get out more...  Socom is starting to kill me...  Seriously...

Oh, Wait, new plans.  I decided it Go on another trip.  This one is a bit shorter, but I figured if I was tieing up loose ends, That I should cover this other one too...  And that is a Trip to the Yukon.  Call me crazy, but I'm goin'.  Watson Lake or bust man. (Check out where Watson Lake is on like, Google maps or something...)  Also, anyone willing to go That way, I'll take.  This trip is for me only, and It'll probobly only be Me, Beck, And Andrew.  So, I wouldn't mind someone else comming.  

So, thats it now, I'm done, Fox Out...

Ok, I lied, it's apperently got this layer of flame retardent on it...  But never the less...  She piles up like a beast...  Not a fun day in the world of me...

So, lets get one thing straight...  I Have issues...  I Think It's been the planning I've been doing lately...  It's slowly but surely killings me... (Not literally of course...  But still, It feels that way)  I don't know how to explain it, so I'll make a list of craziness in the past week.

One: Planning...  Oh dear gawd...  I didn't know that this could cause me so much grief...  I actually think this is what sparked my spiral into the deep abyss...  Because it goes, Trip...  I need people to go with...  Oh...  It's Expensive (See last post) Ok, so money...  I need Job...  Ok...  I've never had a job before...  this might be interesting...  And after a while it just kind of clouded together...

Two:  (Already mentioned, but) Getting people to come...  The most insane thing I've ever done in my life...  (Ok, I lied, but this is close for third...  Don't ask about Second)  I didn't think that EVERYONE I freakin' asked would want to go...  Flip....  So then I hade to make a list of "Cuts"...  Kind of like a pee wee soccor team...  It's horrible...  I don't wanna cut peoples...  Oh well, live and learn...

Three: Job related issues...  Oh man...  I did the unthinkable...  I actually applied at...  McDonalds...  *Crys*  I told myself I wasn't going to, but alas, fate has once again "Shoveled shit...  In my face..." (To quote one of my favorite games...)  Bastard corporate McDicks...  Make me work for them...  Oh well...  It's only for a month, as me and beck are only getting the job expirience, then saying Soyanara to them, and going to work for other peoples. (I'm still trying for Payless Shoe Store)

So, after I get all of this sorted out, I think I can finally die happy...  Or at least pass out for a good while...  Maybe celebrate with a nice good drink.  I dunno...  

Speaking of drinks, I'm holding a New Years Eve Partay!  (For the win)  I don't really care who comes, but it's a party none the less.  Bring your friends, we'll all have fun.  (But I don't want any complaining from anyone saying stuff like "I don't know anyone here, lets go" or "God I hate these people...  And this party is lame..." If you don't like it, just go, I don't wanna hear it...  Party's on December 31, starts at 8:00 pm, ends whenever.

So thats about it...  I made some new songs...  I bought some new games...  I'm still stressing trying to get this damn English project done...  It's starting to piss me off a little bit though...  bastard supernaturalism...  Oh well...

I'm done...  Be back once I settle stuff out with everyone...  Fox Out...
13th-Nov-2007 10:59 pm - Plans!! For The Win!
Ropponmatsu 2
Alright, so here's the low down...  Me, Beck, Andrew, and one other person of my liking...  Are going on a ROAD TRIP!!!  Wiggity wiggity word.  Although this is going to take a lot of time and paticence (Non of which I have at the moment), I think alot of planing will come through in the end.

So, what's happening is We're going to Toronto...  And Maybe Niagra Falls...  If Beck's lucky...  That, and I have some unfinished business to take care of in Beeton, Ontario...  *Fist Punches*  Anyways, Going to Toronto to go so Die Mannequin in concert (Again, Powerball FTW!!! lmao) because they rock the casbar...  Seriously...

For the past few days, I've been making figures, drawing plans, trying to get a job, and just...  Stressing out like crazy...  (And it's only been like, three days since Me and Beck though of the Idea...)  Now, I'm normally someone who can make plans (And actually follow through with them, unlike most of the people I knows...), but this is big...  Now I mean BIG...  It'll be my first trip East.  Ever.

You'd think that that wouldn't think thats a big deal, but it is for me...  I don't really understand why, but I think it'll effect my personallity in some way and make me a better person.  (Doubtful, but it could happen...) 

I've always wanted to travel East...  I don't know why...  I've been West beyond all belief, but never East...  Maybe thats why?  Who knows...  I sure don't...

Anyways, back to my original topic, plans.  I have a car I'm taking, I'll have my licence by then, and (Hopefully) the money for it.  They only thing I'm missing is another person for the trip...  I need suggestions...  Anyone?

The entire trip itself is huge...  Leaving on the 8th of July, returning (In the Extreme case) In two weeks...  A two week trip...  Insane...  So, that's food, shelter, and gas money for two weeks...  These are the figures I came up with.

Food
-14 days with of food
-3 meals a day
-42 meals for entire trip
-10 dollar meals
-420 dollars in food

Shelter
-4 days in a hotel
-120 dollar a day rooms
-480 dollars in hotel room costs
-4 people to pay the bill
-120 dollars in hotel room costs

-2 days in Motels (One there, one back)
-60 dollar motel rooms
-120 dollars in motel room costs
-4 people to pay the bill
-30 dollars in motel room costs

-150 in shelter costs

Gas
-50 dollars to fill gas tank
-3 tanks to get there
-3 tanks while in Toronto
-3 tanks to get back
-9 tanks all together
-450 in gass
-4 people to pay gas
-112.50 in gas

Totals
-450 in food
-150 in rooms to stay in
-112.50 in gas
-712.50 total cost for trip

Now, of course, all of these are pretty variable...  I mean, Not everyone is going to need 3 meals a day, as some people wont get up for breakfast, or they'll eat "Lupper" and be good all day, or the fact that gas could go down in price... (Yea right) (I did take in the fact that Gas could have gone up , because my tank right now is about 39-43 dollars to fill) So, about 700 dollars is a decent estimate.  That, or maybe hotel rooms arent that expensive...  I don't know about you, but I'd like a 5 star bed to sleep in...  Anyways, The only real thing that changes would be food costs, so if you want to figure it out, it's X times Y times 10, where X = Days, and Y = Meals (And 10 dollar meals are a rough estimate...  Some could be 5, others 15...   You get the idea)  

Anyways, that's it for now...  More updates to come on...  The Trip To Ontario!!!  Fox out...

Awesome!!  Posting time...  I don't take enough time to do so, so here goes...

It might be a bit late...  But...  Happy All Hallows Eve!!!  (Or Halloween...  Whichever...)  Halloween was crazy ass man.  Me, Beck, and Connor all went out Trick or treating, which was crazy awesome!  Me and Beck as Rockstars, and Connor as "The Verified Truth" (Or "V" from V for Vendetta, whicheveryou recognize the name from...).  I brang the guitar out and played it as we were trick or treating.  We even got a few requests for songs, and Me and my singer, Connor, improvised.  (I don't know how well I can put the lyrics as sung...  But Here goes...)

Trick or treat, trick or treat
Give me something GOOD TO EAT!
Not Too Big, Not Too Small..
Just The Size of MON-TRE-AL!!!

Thats how we do it...  In Sel-kirrrrrr, Kuh...  

*End Song*

It's got kind of a...  Melodic Country feel to it...  I don't know how better to explain it...

So, thats Halloween, it was a blast.  Recent goings...?  I don't know...  They've been alright I guess...  I need to see some old friends though...  I've been hanging out with the same people for a while now...  I mean, it's not bad, but it's not good either...  Andrew is suppose to be comming in this weekend, so that's bound to be outstanding.  Gonna kick it old school.  *Thumbs Up*

Made some purchases lately, seeing as I got paid, and My grandfather came home.  Awesome...  I Bought Dance Dance Revolution: SuperNOVA 2, and Sing Star Amped.  Both AMAZING games, and both interactive.  I've taken a liking to them lately...  (Interactive games)  ...So it seemed like a good Ider at the time.

I'm All hopped up on chocolate...  Crazy...

Anyways, I've gotta go, I have a story to catch up on, and a kid to play with, so Bye for now...  Fox Out...

P.S. If you want to hear how the songs actually goes, just ask.  I'll sing...  No guitar though, unless It happens to be nearby...  

P.P.S. I actually wrote the "Sappy Love Part" of my story.  It turned out crazy awesome...
23rd-Sep-2007 07:52 pm - I Just Need Somewhere To Go...
Ropponmatsu 2
My...  House...  Instant Dislike Of...  Throw that together properly and you have my feelings...  I need to get out of my house for a while.  I hate it here!  It's like living in poverty...  I hope my grandfather gets back from his "Extended to beyond all hope of him returning" work trip up north...  Honestly, he left in like, mid July, and is still not back...  

Hate the people that live with me too...  They don't do anything around here...  Aside from make my life miserable, and tear up the house.  Last night, they had a party, and kicked me out of the house.  I honestly had no where to go, so I had to resort to calling Beck (Who is grounded for the next month) and asking if I could spend the night...  I got home this afternoon, around supper time, and the house is a fucking wreck...  The hand rail (Which I spent 10 minutes fixing last time) is ripped off the wall at the botton of the stairs.  The window on the outside door, is about to fall off...  The basement is a total disaster area, complete with smell...  The kitchen is turned upside down...  Table out, chairs askew, sink Overflowing with dishes...  It's horrible...  And ten to one, they'll expect me to clean it up...

They've been trying to get me to do the dishes for the past 3 days now, and I refuse to do them...  Just absolutely refuse to...  I didn't dirty a single dish in that sink, and there are NO clean dishes...  NONE!  How is that even possible!!  There are suppose to be 5 people living in this house, and only THREE are using dishes, and one of them is Four!!  This is just retarded!!  Also, there's no food in the house, and if there is, it needs to be cooked with the dishes that need to be done...  Vicious Cycle....  

So, I need to go ask my father for some money to go and buy food with...  Before I go insane...  I guess I should do that now, before he goes to bed...  Makes sense...  Ah well...  Closing statement: Save me......  Fox Out...
 

EDIT: Damn...  Dad's asleep...  8:13 pm...  Still foodless...
16th-Sep-2007 08:46 pm - Ramblings Of A Crazy Teenager
Ropponmatsu 2
Where to start...?  Last time I posted was my birthday...  Half a month ago...  Crazy.  Anyways, loads of stuff happened since then, but nothing too exciting...  Stuffs here, stuffs there...  But, I guess everything deserves SOME sort of recognition, so here goes...

We'll start with the party.  It went smooth and choppy at the same time... It was like, the best, but the lamest too...  Loads of good stuff happened, like people showing up, everyone having a good time,  and the cake!! (Greatest thanks to Krista for it.  It was delicious and no one's ever made me a cake before, so it was awesome) But, alot of stuff didn't go exactly the way I had planned...  Like everyone having to go at like, 12:30, and me getting like, sick at 6 ish in the morn...  Oh well, never the less, It was good for everyone, and if it made zem happy, zen I'm happy.

Next thing would have had to have been...  Start of school...  Sounds about right...  School is going good,  guess...  As good as school can go...  My schedule is lookin' pretty sweet.  English, Myths, then spare lunch spare...  The finally Bio.  It's awsome, so I'm not complaining...  Met up with all my old school buddies.  That was awsome too.  But thats about it for school...  I was expecting more...  Oh well...

So after school comes...  I guess....  The break up.  Yes, those that don't know, Me and Charli broke up and the 12th of September.  That was...  Interesting...  To say the least...  First time I'd ever done the breaking part...  Oh well...  Can't dwell on the past kinda thing goin' on here...  Sho on to the next topic of interest which would be...

People that I haven't seen in eight months!!  (Well...  Now I guess it'd be...  Around...  Four days...?  Question mark...?)  Anyways, it was an awesome night.  We regailed on stories from the past (Next To) 3/4 of the year and just hung out, you know?  T'was fun, but there was this nasty feeling that I kept getting throughout the night...  Needless to say (But I'm saying it anyways...) It kinda put me down the entire night...  (And those people that are trying to make sense of it, It's not what you're thinking...  trust me, It's not...)  But still, it was fun to rejoice with friends.

Well, That concludes my long ass post about the recent happenings in the big life of Derek.  It's been a crazy half month, and only time till tell whats in store for me in the next week or so...  Oh, also, I have some sort of Stress Induced Insomnia...  I get alot of that...  But this one is new.  It's an odd feeling...  Of well, until next time, Fox Out...
28th-Aug-2007 03:14 am - Happy Birthday To Me...
Ropponmatsu 2
So Today, I Turn 17!!  (Turned because it's past 2:37, but whatev)  Big party at the house, which eventually will get moved over to Beck's house.  Oh well, there is more space there anyways...  But damn, I'm tired.  Off to beddy Bye...  Fox Out...  (Like A Light)
