Labor Day

well... I am smack dab in the middle of Labor Day weekend, and so far, it has been pretty shitty. I had thought maybe I'd be able to go home and see my family... but I had to work Saturday, and driving home for only 2 days, when most of those would be driving back and forth, and the cost of gas.. have kept me here. All of my friends are away doing things with family, other friends have left the country, and I feel kinda lonely, kinda bored, and just in a bad mood. The fact that it is a long weekend.. just makes it worse.. I almost wish I could go to work just to get my mind occupied on something. Additionally, this weekend comes at the end of a general crappy week. Work has been tedious and slow... plenty of work to do, however; the work is composed of long boring projects that just make me tired... and this house I live in continues to be inconvenient and annoying. I still, after living here for 2 months, do not have reliable internet access or cable.. and soon I shall start complaining in earnest until it gets hooked up. I shall become the angry tenant. Add that to this boring weekend... and you end up with a lame holiday. (not that Labor Day is much of a holiday anyways..) I thought of going to the movies, and seeing Clone Wars again.. but that would mean going by myself, a thought I am not interested in. I am going to try and get some painting done.. I still have alot of miniatures to finish.. and maybe listen to some new audio books while I'm at it. That should take up most of one day... I'd like to play some new games on my Xbox 360.. lots of cool Arcade games have come out recently (GeoWars 2, Braid, Bionic Commando, Castle Crashers) but without reliable internet, downloading/buying them may not be possible. I can't even chat online with anyone...or catch up on my online comics because the internet will more than likely not stay connected...

You know.. sometimes you need a dose of reality.. something to get your mind clear and focused.. well, I got one. And it was kind of painful.. it did clear my mind.. And now I must spend the rest of weekend mulling it over. I guess I should be less of a dreamer and more of a realist... but I don't like the sound of that...

I am going away this coming weekend to State College (central PA), to spend some time with some of my friends... do some gaming... and hopefully get my mind off of all of this... but that's not gonna be until Friday... so its gonna be a long week...

This was written earlier in the weekend (a little Saturday night and a little Sunday morning) but crappy internet keeps it from being posted until now... stupid Comcast...
