Subject:It smells like piss in this house.
Time:12:17 am.
Mood: tired.
...it does.


Bakery sucks, and I'm getting sick of it. Blah.

Stuff with Luis isn't going so great...lots of internal conflict and stuff. I'm pretty lost as to what to do about it, but I do know that I'm not feeling too good about things.

I'm fat, too. Ugh, I hate the holidays, because it provokes me to eat shit. Grr.

Playing bass is fun, but it's getting harder and harder to find time to do it. I had a good jam session with Darnell and Luis on Saturday night (I think that was it...or was it friday? Hmm). I've learned one scale so far...I'm hoping to learn at least one more by tomorrow.

I work tomorrow 6-10:30 and Friday 4-10:30. Yippee.
Tomorrow I'm running, because I'm a fatass.

Bah humbug. I still need to get Christmas presents...my next paycheck is going totally toward presents. It's fun to buy them when you have money, but I'm not a big spender, so it's becoming a bit ackward.

Subject:Get down with the sickness.
Time:11:24 am.
Mood: sleepy.
Wow, I haven't updated in a while.
Nothing much has gone on...I've been sick for 3 days, but I haven't missed any work (thank goodness).

Ooh, I'm getting my hair did this Saturday. Woohoo, it's gonna be fun. I hope it turns out okay.
Red streaks again. Yeah, bitch.

I'm tired, and I really really look it...I look like I have 2 black eyes or something.

The video for "You and I Both" from Jason Mraz is so cute. Just felt like saying that.

Oh yeah, and I've been working too much...I worked 10 effing hours yesterday. I thought I'd die, but I didn't...so I guess that's good.
Sorry I haven't called you, Chris...I'll call ya soon enough.

I cant get any damn sleep anymore...I keep waking up. It sucks! AHHHH!

I'm registering for classes in December! AHH! I'm excited. I'm sick of doing only work and that's it...I need some educational stimulation for my brain.

I'll have about $700 saved by the end of today...so YAY! I think I'll start buying Christmas presents and stuff now instead of later, because if I do it gradually, I wont lose too much money.

Man oh man, I'm so tired. My mom's giving me crap about registering for classes and she thinks I'm going to get it all done today...yeah right.
I cant register until the 8th of December...so I wish she'd lay off and let me do stuff today rather than sit around at home doing laundry. I'm sick of cleaning this damn house when I barely see it anyways. GRR.

Okay, I'm done now. I'm sick of my own writing. Buh bye.

Time:10:02 am.
Metallica is awesome.
I swear, you cannot grasp how cool they really are until you see them live.

Here were the bad parts about this concert:

1. the before time, because it took 3 hours to get there
2. I spent too much money
3. The people next to us...they crowded me (there were 3 people and 2 seats), and they were smoking weed (it stunk).
4. My back was KILLING me (damn work)
5. We didn't get home until 5 AM (and I work today at 11)
6. I was quite irritable, partly because I was tired and partly because I have PMS.

The good parts:

1. Metallica.
2. I got a tank top and it fits well
3. I got to hang out with Luis, Patrick, Darnell, and Mandy, and that was great.

So yeah...that made up for the bad stuff.
Oh, and I'm sorry, Luis, for being a jerk...I was cranky and mad hehe. I love you!

Well now should be a good time for Jamie to DROWN HERSELF.


Yeah...that's how today's shaping out to be.

Thursday, October 28th, 2004

Time:9:38 am.
Mood: apathetic.
I adore "I love the 80's". It's the best show ever. "I love the 70's" and "I love the 90's" are cool, too. I love the commentary. It's funny, because I know exactly which episode my icon is from...wait, is that funny or sad? Hmmmmm....

Luis and I were talking about politics last night, and it was making me mad. I don't know why, but if you bring politics into a conversation with Jamie, you need to be nice about it or I wont be nice to you. Hehe.

I'm a Kerry person, though...I don't like Bush, PERIOD, and although I'm uncertain about Kerry, I'll still support him and what he wants to do with this country.
Gosh, I hate it though. Politics are nothing but rich people trying to win and doing anything and kissing anyone's ass that they can get their lips on. I don't like that kind of competition in my own life, and I certainly hate hearing about it happening with the people running our country.

So, for future reference, Jamie will not be running for the oval office...ever...or any other position that deals with the government...so there.

In other news, I'm cold, and my stomach is making strange noises. I also have to go to work at noon, and I'm dreading it like whoa.

Today is 4 months for Luis and me.

Well, that's all for now. I'm bored. Work sucks. I might get a job at Target or something...maybe I'd get more consistant hours there...plus, they might pay better. Hmmmmmmmm.

Tuesday, October 26th, 2004

Time:10:39 pm.
Mood: cold.
Wow, I haven't updated in a while. I'm super tired, too, so I'll sum it up in bullets or whatever.

-Work work work. I got to cashier yesterday, though, which was cool...plus, I've got 30.30 hours next week, so yay for more money!
-I might get a 2nd job...just to get an extra cash-flow going. Might work at the movie rental place right next to Publix, but just on weekends or somethin'...we'll see what happens, though. I don't wanna burn myself out.
-Darnell (Luis' brother) might move in with Luis and I soon. This is a good thing, because I know Darnell's girlfriend, Amanda, would want to join in as well (she'd just move in after she graduates). If we got a 2-bedroom, that could totally work. I'd like to move out in a few months...*crosses fingers*
-Wow, I haven't been online in a while. What the heck's wrong with me?
-I'm still debating between pharmacy and optometry...I think I'll take Chemistry when I'm at Valencia and see how I like it, and if I don't like it, I'll do optometry.
-My mom's still getting on my case about shit, and I honestly am starting to really not like the woman. So yeah...more reason to move out.
-I think I'm fighting off some sort of cold/infection/virus thing...and my brother has it now, so yeah...it knocked me on my ass today, lemme tell ya...I was tired all day, and I even took a nap (which, if you know me, you know I never take naps).
-Metallica concert November 6th!
-I work on Halloween...I'm debating on whether or not I should dress up, but we'll see.
-Playing bass with Darnell, Luis, and Patrick is a whole lot of fun. I cant wait until we get singing started and everything. They might have me sing stuff, or at least do back-up vocals...that'll be interesting. Woohoo, though! It's fun to be in a band! We still don't know what to call ourselves, though...any ideas? We're a rock/metal band, so it should be something neat.

Well, that's all, folks.

Time:11:08 am.
...this is not good.
Read this NOW.

If that thing is breeding, it could destroy our food chain.
...haha, who knew that the fate of our demise could rest in a fish.

Anywho, I went to the UHS game last night. Man, I've missed so many people...Max, Fran, and Matt, we need to hang out! I also have to call Jose.

It was weird being back there. I put 4 years of blood, sweat, and tears into that band, so part of me misses it a lot. However, I see how much it's changed since I was in it, so part of me is glad that I'm not there. If I were a senior this year, I would've quit after what I heard about Obado's little speech and his attitude after that last competition.
So, to sum up, Obado's a dick, which is why I'm pretty glad I'm not in band anymore.
I'm sorry to all of you who have to put up with that bullshit...keep on trucking, okay?

Bryce and I had a long talk. In that talk, I realized that some things are wrong...and I want to work on them to make them right.

It's an absolutely gorgeous day outside today. Gosh, I wish I weren't working from 3-11 today, or I'd totally be outside all afternoon.

Oh, and I think someone is stealing my identity...because Bank of America denied my application for a checking and savings account due to my 'credit', which doesn't exist, since I have no credit.
Garrett got the exact same account, so I don't see how it's different for me.
...So yeah, that sucks.

Time:10:39 am.
I watched The Matrix for the first time last night (FINALLY).
It was pretty good. I should see the other 2 now.

Haha, and yes, it took me that long to see it.

Random thoughts of Jamie:

The Minnesota Twins are in the playoffs!

You know, it'd be cool to be a panther. You could lie around in trees.

Porkchop Sandwiches!!!

That is all.

Subject:Moving on.
Time:11:45 am.
Mood: okay.
I've had this journal for about a year and a half now.
It's time to move on.

I have another journal that is friends only. Comment in this entry and I'll add you. If I don't, don't take it personally...there are just some things I cant show people.
I'll occasionally update in this journal to say how things are going, though, so don't fret. You'll still keep in contact with me even if I cant add you to the other journal.
Oh, and if you see a random person that has added you, it's probably me.

25 - Let Go.

Saturday, October 2nd, 2004

Time:7:09 am.
Mood: exhausted.
I got trained as a cashier on Thursday. It was cool and scary...but I was getting the hang of it as time went on. I'll be certified by next week, and then I will actually get cashiering shifts! This is a good thing.
I hope I close as a cashier soon. I'm sick of closing as a bagger and doing a million things...like last night.
I had to close, and then I was supposed to go to a meeting at 6 AM...I didn't wake up. Hopefully they don't write me up for not going.

I'm opening a checking AND savings account with Bank of America. Finally I wont have all this access to money and spend it like I always do.

Yesterday I bought makeup with my $20 gift card to Target. I needed something other than brown and purple eyeshadow.

Juan messaged my phone 2 days ago. I emailed him, and he replied. I miss that kid.
He's coming back in February. I'm excited, 'cause I haven't seen him since last year.

I saw Luis, Justin, and Tiffany all in the same Burger King yesterday. It was awesome.
In ways, I miss band, but I'm also really glad I'm not in it (I'd probably start murdering the directors if I were).

Today I am hanging out with Matt and Bryce. I think they're going to the Lindy exchange tonight, though, so it'll just be a relaxing night at home tonight (first time I've had that in a long time).
Then I work on Sunday 4:30-close. I'm starting to hate that shift. It gives me a dull headache and makes me hurt from the neck down.

I said "I" too much in this entry.

...I don't know.
Ugh, I need a few more hours of sleep.

Wednesday, September 29th, 2004

Time:11:52 am.
Mood: curious.
Well yesterday was interesting. Going up to all these cashiers at different Publixes and trying to buy alcohol was weird...and one of the cashiers was kinda mean to me. Jerk. I'm just doing my job.
The good thing about this, though, is that I got more hours, so I made up for missing Sunday. Plus, it felt like an easy day, because after that I just did registers. Registers are complicated, but they're better than doing the other jobs. The only problem is, I'm really slow at just about everything...so I didn't get done until like 10:15.

Today I shall be hanging out with Luis. I have the day off, which is nice.

Hey, I've got a question.
What is a great date for you guys? I mean, what are some date ideas?
'Cause I'm pretty stumped, and I figured if I asked everyone, I'd find a good idea to do.
I've run out of ideas. Seriously, if I didn't enjoy Luis's company like I do (where it doesn't matter what kind of date we're on), I'd get really bored.
I just want to see if I can find something new.

Any suggestions?

Tuesday, September 28th, 2004

Time:12:52 pm.
Mood: loved.
Oh, one more thing.

Luis and I are officially 3 months.
*huge smile*

This is now officially my longest relationship. Haha, sort of sad, since I haven't kept a relationship for more than 3 months before, but I'm glad I'm with him.

I love you, sweetheart!
6 - Let Go.

Time:10:53 am.
Mood: sore.
I'm kind of in a bad mood today. I don't know why...just am.
Well, maybe I do know why...but no one needs to know about that stuff.

A 30-something year old guy hit on me last night. It was gross...my mom's all worried now about me carrying out orders for people.
So I'll just look for a different job today...

Haha, I have to do alcohol checks today. This means I have to go into a Publix, buy beer, and see if they sell it to me. I don't really look too old, so I don't think I'll get any alcohol today...but hey, it's cool.
Gots to close tonight...I'm really sore, though, so I hope I don't do too much running around. Note to everyone: Never do a ton of lunges the night before you do an 8 hour shift.

Okay, time to get ready to leave. I'm going job hunting I think...but it'll probably end up being me and Chris just chatting away as usual. He's my homeboy.

Okay, time to make myself look older so that I can try to trick people into selling me alcohol. (I think this'll be the only part of my job I'll like)
Let Go.

Sunday, September 26th, 2004

Time:6:04 pm.

You don't understand. We always get power knocked out...every effing storm, I swear...so this is wonderful.

I just want this storm to go away.
Oh, and I don't want to go to work tomorrow either. I know I'm gonna despise my bosses over the next few weeks.

Hurricanes blow.

Saturday, September 25th, 2004

Subject:I'm annoyed with stuff.
Time:6:29 pm.
Mood: annoyed.
GO AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ah, that felt better.

It's been 6 days since I've posted, and I'm sure it'll be a while since my next post, since we now have a 4th hurricane hitting us.

Publix has a new policy where we have to carry out every order, and if we don't we'll get fired. This means...I need a new job. I'm sick of overworking for these people, especially when I get treated exactly the same as the lazy ones. Maybe when I get trained for cashiering on Thursday I'll get more cashiering shifts instead of bagging. I'm despising bagging at this point.

I'm seeing Metallica in Ft. Lauderdale on November 6th with Luis, Darnell, Mandy, and Patrick. WOOHOO! I like Kirk and Rob, so this will be nice...Kirk is hot, even though he's like 40 yrs old. Hahaha, don't worry, Luis, you're still hot babe.

Oh yeah, I've been sick since Wednesday. I worked Thursday and felt like death, then took Friday off. I feel better today, but Luis still feels like crap.

Okay, the rest I can just sum up...a few people like me at work, with Chris being the one who actually has a crush on me...we bought a halloween costume for our dog, but she wont let us put it on...I want to get my hair did, and if Publix has a problem, they can shove it up their asses...Robbie, my cousin, is officially an asshole for reasons I'll only tell you if you IM me...oh, and I want to see Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, because it looks intriguing.

Now, I'm off to play my trumpet, because I miss it (I realized this today after hearing a trumpet in the background of The Real World). Bye byes until I have power again...oh, and eff hurricanes.

Sunday, September 19th, 2004

Time:2:34 pm.
Mood:dreading work.
I want a new job...but I guess mine will suffice for now.
I'd love to work at a place like Gamestop. It's so small and cute. Morgan, I envy you...even though I don't really like video games all that much.
I'd like to work at a smaller store. I wouldn't be so nerved out whenever I go to work.

I like Mindy Smith. She's a country-folk singer, but she's cool. Her voice is really pure. I like how you can feel the notes she's singing.

Workin' for the Man tonight. 4:30-11.
It's inventory weekend, so the bosses are going to be a-holes.
Oh, and it's Sunday, so it'll be busy. WONDERFUL.
Luis and Garrett are both working tonight, though, so that's cool. I wont be completely bored.

I have purple nails. They look neat.

Friday, September 17th, 2004

Time:9:20 pm.
Oh yeah, more bad news.

My cousin-in-law, Diane, has cancer, as many of you know. It was breast cancer...but it's been spreading.
Well it's spread to her brain now.
The doctors say she has 2 months to live.

Pray for her, please...and for the family. My poor cousin, Robbie, is going to be so lost if he loses her...he'll be raising 2 kids by himself, and he's being sued by the hospitals because he cant pay the $16,000 he owes.

I just hope that if God decides to take her, that she goes peacefully without any pain.
She's such a sweet, kind person.

Time:5:04 pm.
Mood: tired.
Yesterday was one of the worst days I've had in months.

First off, I had to work yesterday. They called me in, and I didn't really want to go, but I went in anyways. I didn't know 5 hours of work could feel that slow...ugh.
Then I got a headache, so I was itching to go home.
Finally, at 7:00, Garrett and I left. I'm all excited to go home, take tylenol, and then get ready to go out...when the car ran out of gas.
SO we walk back to Publix and call our mom...no answer. Call the house...no answer. Call my cell phone...no answer. Call Garrett's cell phone...no answer. Finally we called Luis, since he lives like 2 minutes away, and he came with a gas can. It took a little while to find gas, because the station next to publix only sold Diesel (effers).

So after all of this, we come home and ask our mom if she was home earlier. She said she was home the whole time...
Then she gets pissed that gas wasn't filled up in the car in the first place. We told her we'd be more responsible (but wtf, I don't drive the thing). She still kept arguing.
I calmly asked her if she would put her phone on, since it was on silent. She gets pissed and starts yelling, and a huge fight breaks out.

Ugh, all the stuff she says to me...I swear, you wouldn't think this was my mother.
*sigh* It doesn't matter though...once I get out of this house, I'll be so much happier. I'm just waiting on money issues...I need to save money up for that.


Today was a good day, though. I was a half hour late for work, which sucked, but the people working today were cool.

That's all for now in Jamie-town. Hey, that rhymed sort of.
