The greatest man I have ever met. [Oct. 8th, 2006|03:22 pm]
The greatest man I have ever met died today. He was my friend, my mentor, and my grandfather.

I remember every time he told me he was proud of me. I remember it so well because it meant so much more when it came from him. I became a teacher because I figured if in my life, I touch half as many people as he did, it would be a great success.

He was the most virtuous man I have ever met. Never drank, never smoked, was never quick to anger, a family man. Anytime I came home from school he was the first to ask how I was doing. He always encouraged me to do well. If there as ever anything he could do to help he would drop what he was doing and help.

I think what was greatest about him was how he listened, most people say they are listening but do more talking than anything else. Not my grandfather, you could sit and talk to him about anything that you wanted, he would remain quiet and listen to every word you said. And the amazing thing was that after you were finished he would smile and just respond with something that you needed to hear. It wasn’t always what I wanted to hear but I knew deep down it was always what I needed to hear.

I loved him so much and I just wish I had one more chance to tell him how much I truly love and cared for him. He touched my life more than anyone ever had.

If you think of it, please keep my family, especially my grama, in your prayers.

I love you Grampa

food for thought........ [Apr. 18th, 2006|11:37 pm]

I'm the decider.
I pick and I choose.
I pick among whats.
And choose among whos.

And as I decide
Each particular day
The things I decide on
All turn out that way.

I decided on Freedom
For all of Iraq.
And now that we have it,
I'm not looking back.

I decided on tax cuts
That just help the wealthy.
And Medicare changes
That aren't really healthy.

And parklands and wetlands
Who needs all that stuff?
I decided that none
Would be more than enough!

I decided that schools
All in all are the best
The less that they teach
And the more that they test.

I decided those wages
You need to get by
Are much better spent
On some CEO guy.

I decided your Wade
Which was versing your Roe
Is terribly awful
And just has to go.

I decided that levees
Are not really needed.
Now when hurricanes come
They can come unimpeded.

That old Constitution?
Well, I have decided
As"just goddam paper"
It should be derided.

I've decided gay marriage
Is icky and weird.
Above all other things,
It's the one to be feared.

And Cheney and Rummy
And Condi all know
That I'm the Decider -
They tell me it's so.

I'm the Decider
So watch what you say
Or I may decide
To have you whisked away.

Or I'll tap your phones.
Your e-mail I'll read.
`cause I'm the Decider -
Like Jesus decreed.

Yes, I'm the Decider
The finest alive
And I'm nuking Iran.
Now watch this drive!

[mood |relaxedrelaxed]

Planting seeds, they won't sink in.
I'm dried up, like the desert earth, how could these seeds give birth.
Water me down, liquify, I will not be cursed.
From one into a million disperse.

Wisdom reigns like water from heaven to below.
Crush my earth, seeds sow, garden start to grow.
You know you've got to rise, though you like to flow.
You can't keep staring out the window.

Earth, water, wind, fire we stay low while getting higher.
Spark igniter, fighting tired
Stay wired, enlighten loads.
Stay alive, weep wail chant, cry, let out a sigh
Energized, give out my last dime, life shouldn't pass me by.

Rise, to the occassion.
Keep these hearts all blazin.
Build your life on a river of wax.
Melt into space, we've been here since the beginning, not going away.
Not going away.....

So i am at work right now so i decided it is time for a post!

School has been ruling my life for the past week and it will continue to rule it untill the end of the quarter.

I have to get at least a C+ in my math classes for the college of eduaction. Calc isnt a much of a problem as my linear algebra class is KICKIN MY ASSSSS. I have a test twmarrow though so hopfully that goes well.

Motto for spring broke:
"Broke ass kids drinkin broke ass 40's"

We have scrounged up enough money between the 10 of my friends that we are going to get about 90 40's we have decided to go for a variety pack.

If anyone is in the columbus area between March 17th and 27th and would like to enjoy a tasty bevrage with me i am sure we are going to have plenty just give me a call!

Winter Quarter so far [Jan. 21st, 2006|06:53 pm]
So I am doing my weekend shift at the library... I am only here till 9 tonight so i really cant complain. Twmarrow I work 8-midnight tho. THAT SUCKS WANG!

So far my quarter has been going really well. I have started spreading out and becoming better friends with a lot of different people. There have also been a lot more opportunities to go out which is a good and bad thing becuase I need to make sure I still keep things under control.

Peace g's!

I have my first calc exam friday so I am gonna study pretty hard for that. My linear algrbra test was yesterday. I think i did ok there were just a shit-ton of fractions which made it a lot harder than it really needed to be.

So tonight i think i may be going
