next entry

well, after the last post i will fill you in on the next few weeks of how my life went.  so i had just quit my job, i had also gotten my tax money back, so i was set for cash for a bit. however i still wanted to get a job ASAP. so i started job hunting immediately. after about 2 weeks i got called for an interview at walmart to unload trucks. i was extremely surprised about that. i went in to the interview and was told it was a difficult job. they asked if i was still interested, i said yes. they gave me a piece of paper and told me that as long as i passed a drug test i would have a job. i passed the drug test. went in for orientation, got all the info i would need and started the next day.

catch up

ok, so i realize that since my last post a lot has happened. i never told yall i had a job at walmart. so ill start from where my last post left off.

 i was transferred to a different store, located on just down the road from Busch Gardens. this store was terrible. it was run by a lazy woman and all her employees were just like her. when i came they just threw ALL their responsibilities on my shoulders. i would literally walk i the door, clock in and find them sitting in the back office while i had to take care of customers waiting in the lobby. i was there for 3 months. during this time my car, a 1967 Chevy Impala, started acting up really bad.

Eventually it just stopped running altogether. there was a lot of stress during this period, but luckily tax time came around and a perfect storm occurred which led me to walk out of that store and never return. That story deserves its own post so i'll hold that one until next time.

lets see where this goes

Well, I decided to return again and post more stuff here. A lot a changed since my last post, for one, i am out of a job. I no longer work for Wal-Mart. I'll leave it at that. so for the past month i have been searching. i went out and got my class d security license. hopefully that plans out. I've been playing minecraft a lot lately. its something to do while waiting for the phone to ring. its 2:30 am right now, so this post is going to cut short. I'll be back tomorrow. there is a lot still to talk about.

last day

well, today was my last day at my current store. it was eventful to say the least. it started at 8:30, when i arrived. after waiting 20 minutes, my manager finally showed up to let me in the store. she immediately ran to the beck crying her eyes out. after clocking in, locking the doors and turning on the lights i finally ask her what was wrong. apparently while she was getting ready for work, her dad was mauled by 2 pitbulls... while she was watching. ao i told her to leave and that i would handle the rest of the her shift. so before i could start my morning routine, i had to call around and find a person to come in so we wouldnt be understaffed. eventually i found someone to come in. everything was going smoothly for aobut an hour, untill out bun toaster stopped working. the gears started sueeking, then screeching until they just stopped spinning. so i opened it up and sinsce we didnt have any wd-40 i sprayed it with Pam. this worked, but it still squeeked all day. very annoying. then our customers started coming and i dont know what got into people today, but they were all asses. one asked if our drive-thru guy was a breech baby, then another just flat out called him a f'er. they yelled at us and claimed we were overcharging them, treatening to call our corporate office to tell them. i refused to give them anything, but the others snuck the free food to them.  people, man.

a lul in gaming

for the time being i am out of new games to play. its been a crazy 3 months, what with skyrim, saints row, assassins creed, dark souls, and arkham city. with soul calibur, racoon city, mass effect, the darkness, ninja gaiden, and the recently announced Resident Evil 6 coming down the pipeline it seems that the gaming market is becoming flooded with a-list games. this is NOT a bad thing, it just means that my wallet is going to be tighter that usual. now on to the 3 month update.

 i got my brother a job where i work. i was in line to get a promotion, but the higher ups put a halt on all promotions to focus on making more money (for them). about that time our district manager got transferred and a new guy took over our area. then about 2 weeks after the new guy took over, he promoted my brother. needless to say, i was pissed. now i am being transferred to another location that adds 30 minutes onto my morning commute. all because the new guy wanted a team that didn't really know the previous DM. but it gets better! i am not just working at the store i am transferring to, but am still working at the store i am at now. i they have me working both locations and am getting 10 hours less a week than i made just working at on store. this is going to kill my gas, a 67 impala isn't good with fuel.

i am probably forgetting something, but it will come to me later. its good to be back.

games took over.

i apologize for the period of 0 posts, but a bunch of games hit all at once and just took over. its recently been Dead Rising 2: Off The Record and Arkham City. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU PLAY ARKHAM CITY! there are multiple games hitting right now, but this game deserves your attention. as for Off the Record, if you haven't played dead rising 2 then definitely pick this up, its better than 2 by a lot. if you have played 2 and liked it then at least rent Off the Record. now coming up is the game i have been waiting YEARS for. November 11th, 2011... SKYRIM! i have taken that day off so i can pick it up at midnight, and then took my week vacation right after that so i can give the game the full attention it deserves. i have 3 characters that i must play as, as i am going to carry the legacy of my Oblivion characters into Skyrim. My main will be a male Argonian Assassin, just as it was with oblivion. 2nd will be my female Dark Elf Mage. finally i will have my male Nord Berserker. very different play styles, but it should make for a much larger gaming experience. so, loyal readers, if you are gonna pick this one up, who will your first play through be?

The Apocalypse

so i had a very vivid dream last night regaurding, you guessed it, the Apocalypse.

It starts late one night. i am watching the news, when a breaking story hits. the anchor says that the world is going to end at 10:30 a.m. the next morning. there is nothing that anyone can do, so we should get together with our loved ones and wait for the inevitable. hearing this i go into the basement and fall asleep. i wake up the next morning and climb the stairs out of the basement. i am greeted by the sight of my family all around me. they are all panicking about how the world was going to end or even if it was gonna end. i chime in and tell them that it is, in fact, going to end but the planet is just going to blow up and vaporize us before we know what hit us. just then i look out the window into the backyard and i see a geyser of lava erupt from the ground. we all stand there and watch as the lava flow becomes bigger and creeps toward the house. i am the first to react by running out the front door and take a right, trying to outrun the lava at all costs. eventually my brother catches up with me, as another geyser erupts to our left and the ground begins to fall apart into a lake of lava. the path ahead of us is nothing but a lava. we backtrack and begun running through backyards dodging more lava, watching the ground continue to fall apart. eventually we come to a tunnel. on the other side of the tunnel is the ocean and for some reason, my brother and i want to get to the ocean. we work our way through the tunnel when it starts to fall into a lava pit like everything else. we come to a doorway, the ground behind us is liquefying. we open the door to see the room is mostly lava, but if we get a good jump we can clear the room. my brother goes first and make the jump fine, but he keeps going and leaves me behind. i don't have enough room behind me to get a running start, so i just jump. my left foot hits the other side, and the ground cracks and starts to sink into the lava. as i fall back into, waiting to feel the pain, a hand reaches out and grabs my left arm. i look up to see my mom holding my arm. but im too heavy for her to keep up for long. my right leg sinks into the lava up to my thigh. i feel my leg melting right arm grabs a doorway and i pull myself out of the lava. the lava had seared my wound shut, so there was no blood. i crawl/ hop out of the tunnel and onto a boardwalk over the ocean. i see floating way out in the distance, a futuristic city safe from harm. i try to think of a way out when i see a towering, massive man in front of me. he has long red hair and a long red beard, but there is grey in his hair. i dont remember how i found out, but i realized he was God. He told me that this was the way He said the world would end, in fire. He said that there was nothing anyone could do. each of us would have to die, even those in the ocean would be boiled alive. He showed me visions of dead children floating in water as it boiled them, He made me fall into the boiling waters to feel their pain.
next thing i knew i was back in the boardwalk in front of Him. the thought of all the wrong that i did in the world came flooding back to my mind. i fell to my knee and told Him i was sorry for everything. as He walked away He told to it was too late for an apology.  i then black out. when i wake up i am in a pit of pure blackness. i start to walk forward and a blue flame erupts just giving me enough light to make out that i am on a bridge. as i move forward more blue flames erupt revealing more of the bridge. i see gates along the bridge and as i try to open the first, i realize that it is locked. just then i hear noises coming from the backness of the sides of the bridge. suddenly i see a mutilated hadn reach up and grab the side of the bridge. this thing pulls itself up onto the bridge. it grins an impossibly large grin, revealing hundreds of razor sharp fangs. this thing starts to come at me. as i try to bust the gate open more of these things start to climb onto the bridge. i turn around and demand this thing tell me where i am and to let me through the gate. the things grin grows even wider and it says "you are in Hell, my dear friend, and i will let you through the gate when we are done with you." just before the things can grab me i wake up.

i have had a few apocalypse based dreams, and they all take place in different locations and with different people around, but one single element sticks with each one. the world always ends with lava. whether i am trapped in a cave and lava is seeping in, or erupting from the ground or manifesting everywhere. there is always lava. how do you think the world will end, nuclear war? black hole? an invasion of some kind?
