Word of Warning

So, if you get robbed, you need to change banks. Not just cancel the card and open a new one. I'll tell you why:

You probably know that i got robbed. Perhaps i'll post the story later, it's quite exciting. They just started taking my money. They wrote 3 checks as if they were from a 3rd party written to me and they cashed them using my ID, so a grand total of $2200 has been taken from me. The bank is working on it. In the meantime, i can't access my money, so i have about $12 to my name. Suck a lot. So, with my ID, they can find my money anywhere. So once this is resolved, i'm changing banks.

School is good. I'm sad there was no class on Mondays because that is the only day i have my dance class.

Still no job. I'm not sure what i want/can have as long as a job anyway. I'll find something.

And girlfriend's birthdays are hard to shop for. Amen.

More or Less than Stagnant

Is movement more or less than stagnant? I couldn't decide. Anyway...

So, i'm registered for school. In fact, today is my first day at school and it's been interesting. I have four classes:
  • Anthropology: Bones, Stones & Evolution
  • Psychology: Reserch Methods
  • Finite Math
  • English
  • Dance: Hip Hop

Okay, so I said four. I haven't signed up for the dance class yet, but there is a reason. I'm currently signed up for about 26 credit hours because of whatever, i don't know, moving on. I'll end up with 15 by the end of today. I took the dance class last semester and it was amazing fun. I would always talk about it and my family and girlfriend's family came to see me perform when it was all done and my dad got so excited that he signed up for it. Yes, John Wyatt is in a college Hip Hop dance class. I didn't think i could take the class because of my schedule, but it all got rearranged just this morning and i had time. So... i grabbed my gym bag and plan to surprise my dad by showing up to and signing up for his dance class. I think he'll really like that.

*I have my performance on video on my home computer and on my facebook. I'll see if i can upload it later.

So my anthropology class is a lab science which means it goes from 1 - 3:30, but today was the first day, so we just went over the syllabus and left, which left me a plethera of time untill my next class at 4:45. I wondered around, went to the institute, did my english homework (online class), ate, and whent to my 4:45 Psychology Research class where i met the department heads who were there to tell me my teacher was sick and they'll let us know if wednesday is canceled as well. So here i am blogging... Waiting for dance at 7. So, basically, i had a 45 minute class at 1 and i've been in limbo ever sence. Interesting day.

School [Check]

Job [Anyone have any leads?]

I could probably get one myself, but... I'm really not motivated to work retail or whatever jobs people have in highschool, although i'm not too pridefull to comply if that's my only option.

Christmas Bonus

Crazy Christmas indeed. So, i get a call on the 27th from my boss explaining to me that there is no more work. The shop was bought out and we all got layed off. Turns out that the term "Family Business" doesn't mean much these days and everyone is looking to make a buck. So i'm out of a job. Merry Christmas. I was relying on that job to help me move out in January and now, those planns are shot and my school plans for next semester are frustrated untill i figure out my work situation. Basically, my life will be stagnant for a while...

On a lighter note: Happy New Year! I celebrated by going to the Tempe Block Party with Angela and some friends. The main attraction and reason we went was for the Bare Naked Ladies, who performed awesomly. Some lady tried to crowd surff over my head and ended up bludgering my ear with her heal, so Angela's huge brother-in-law ended up lobbing her into the isle. Right on her rump. Then she was escorted out by security. Quite funny.

So, the first thing i did this year was kiss Angela right on the mouth. It was my first time kissing someone at midnight, and truthfully, i hope she's there for all the rest of my New Years. I'm not going to get all sappy, so enough said.

So, it's a new year. What now, hu? I was thinking on the way home in the car today about what my resolution was going to be. I thought about being more healthy and i remembered something Geoff said about not drinking soda and then i remembered how much i liked soda and discarded that option.

I decided that my new year's resolution was to make sure that i did what made me happy. I've been around and thru enough to know the difference between what brings temporary pleasures and what brings lasting happiness and so i'm going to trust myself from now on. I'm going to go with what my gutt tells me and stop trying to be a people pleaser. I'm a very stubborn 22 and it's about time i put my piece where it fits in the puzzle.
