Did you know That!?
Today really sucked!
Last night Andrew Ippel, John Dawe, and had our final practice. I watched mystic river into the night and then slept in the basement because it is cool down there. Since we dont have the air on, it is a nice refuge, I even woke up cold! well I woke up to the sound of my cell-phone going off, it was Dynamite sound recording studio saying that they were going to have to cancel our recording for today because their computer crashed…now this would be no problem if it werent for the fact thant Andrew leaves for New Mexico in 1 week, and John is leaving for Europe to be a Jesuit in July sometime. So now I have to figure out rescheduling, etc…it is a pain in the butt! Especially when your whould mindset for the day is recording, the night before you sike yourself up for it, early in the morning you can’t get you mind off it, and then even when it get’s canceled you can’t focus on anyhting else!
I was so happy to see the little advertisement about a summer job working with kids full time and that the requirements dealing with the outdoors and camping fit me perfectly. I e-mailed the lady in charge (I had to do some searching on the internet, there was no telephone number or e-mail address on the advertisment) I explained my experience and my interest in the position, and sent it on it’s way. I thought…maybe God didn’t want me to have that YMCa job, or the job at Schuil because I was supposed to do this instead, something that was perfect for me. Well after going to Calvin to tell Andrew that we werent going to the studio today, I checked my e-mail and found a reply from the woman that wrote “You sound like a great candidate but unfortunately you are too late. The deadline was June 4, 2004 at 4:30 P.M. I am very sorry.” Well if that doesn’t make your day, I don’t know what does…
I had a bad day, but that happens, I thought maybe I would cook up a nice piece of steak that was leftover from the little shindig that we had when Bryan was home. I made up a nice marinade and cooked it just right, sat it on my plate and sat down to a nice lunch. I started to cut off a bite-sized piece as my cat whined for a taste, Raelson walked up and laughed…then all of a sudden Little Jerry Seinfeld jumped up on my lap, and as I was in the process of putting my steak-knife in my other hand so I could lift him off and throw him to Raelson, he took a giant bite of the steak and wouldn’t let go! I picked him up but the steak was dripping delicious sauce, so I threw him into the kitchen (to save the carpet form stains) and made a lunge. Realson got to him first and then swung him back and forth as he groaned and hissed. the steak flew out of his mouth and hit the refridgerator door. Raelson, holding the cat, ran around the table as I chased him with the intent of causing pain to that little hungry eyed monster with whiskers coated in yummy-ness. Raelson ran upstairs with me on his heels, locked himself and the cat in the bathroom and wouldn’t let me in until I calmed down. Once I was allowed in, I screamed at the cat so loud that he got really freaked out…I think he could understand the swears and anger that I released.
Well I was going to see the new Harry Potter movie with Raelson and Joel Fisher to take my mind off things. WellI took a little nap, then was informed that the movie was going to be 12 dollars, since it was on IMAX and out student discount wouldn’t apply. I will not pay 12 dollars to see movie…I could rent 6 movies for that price…they wouldnt budge to see the non-IMAX version, so I didn’t go. On top of that, I have little money in my back account because what I thought was just a deposit for a tuxedo, I guess was a fee, or something went wrong…I have to call the freakign tux place and ask them if there was a mistake because as far as I can remember, they said that they would tear up the little charge-card reciept-dealy when the tux was returned…here’s to losing close to a hundred dollars!
I have not recieved any offers to hang out at all this summer except from my roomates. Please call me and relieve me from my boredom, my feelings of unwantedness, and my pissed off mood right now. In addition to that I really need a full-time job and am having a really hard time finding one…please help me make some cash so I can finish out my studies at Calvin College. I am gladly accepting contact from people..so please do so!
