5:51 pm - stuck

My shit is kinda complicated right now. When I started this school year, I thought I was in till next May. When I started this semester, I thought I was in till this December. On Thursday, I went to see Dr. K about registering for classes in the fall and he tells me I can graduate in May if I take one class this summer. Great! I would love to finally graduate from college, get my degree, and start teaching. Then I started having questions about this. The problem with this is that if I take this out, I'll only have a bachelor of science degree in Math/Science/Technology. I won't be certifiied to teach. But, you can go alternate route to get teaching certifiication (work for a year, taking a night class). The thing about that is that only districts desperate for teachers are willing to take alternate route people and I'm not sure if that's how I want to start off my career. Plus, I haven't been looking for a job, since I thought I would be in school. Everybody else has interviews or even offers and I have nothing. Now, I could get a job doing something else and make some money, but how would that look to people looking at me as a teacher some day? But, I would be making money and not paying tuition. But then my student loans would come due. But if I stay in school to finish my certification, how will that work? I didn't apply for JPE or student teaching this semester because I thought I would be in JPE this semester and student teaching in the fall. But getting my ELE incomplete turned into an A took too long to switch my classes over. So, I'm stuck with that.

Georgio, my landlord, is the hugest asshole in the world.  He told me and Mahmet that we could live in our house next year. He called me for weeks in a row to make sure that's what I wanted to do. We showed his rental property to his prospective renters and I talked to them about me staying there for another year. Nobody I met was opposed to the idea. So he goes behind my back and rents our 6 person house to like 10 Rider frat boys. So I don't have anywhere to live and its really really late for finding another place. So, I'm stuck with that.

Asked out a friend from work. She said yes. Planned on a day. Later on, she said she couldn't make it. I didn't say anything about rescheduling because I am a loser. So, I'm stuck with that.

Easter was nice. Hung out with Rublin, Dip, Rachel, Biz, Harry, and Andy at the Gaslight for a bit. Went to church with Jonathan. Played Oblivion on the 360 with Justin. Walked the dogs. Pretty much the only bright spot in my recent days.

So imaguymagnetgave me an excuse to update my journal.

Once tagged by this entry, the assignment is to write six random facts about yourself. Then, pick six of your friends and tag them. No tag backs. This explanation should be included.

1) I'm never sure if green or blue is my favorite color.
2) Growing up, I wanted to be a palentologist and I read every single dinosaur book in the South Orange library.
3) When I am purposfully traveling towards a destination, I usually race everybody else who seems to be heading that way.
4)I care more about most other people than I do about myself. 
5) I've been run over by a car three times in my life.
6) I'm going to die alone and unloved (EMO!)

So, chaosmixed, chikwithscourge, gothichippie190, sckg_lena, tenfeettall, and wyattreloads do it up.

So last semester ended with me getting an A in RAL and sorta in ELE. Like I had an A and then I told her I was going to be turning in my final project late. She said that would be okay as long as I understood I would be getting a reduced grade and I would have to mail it to her. So I did. And she never got it. So my grade is incomplete pending I redo my fucking huge ass child study and get it Dr. Eberly. Gah. I ended up with a C- in genetics with an A- on the final. So I guess I was doing prettty crappy until I killed myself for that last test. My lab report was a B and I'm cool with that after the massive amounts of problems we had with our flies. Calc...I'm taking again, again. I should have had the 2.5 I needed for JPE but I don't because I am a stupid. So I'm taking my tech capstone and entomology as an extra bio elective as well. This is really my last chance and I think I have the motivation to get through this. I can't have wasted so much of my time and my parents' money on this without getting my degree. And I really really want that degree. Teaching is what I want to do with my life and I need it to do that.

Since I last wrote here I was passed over twice for promotion to undergraduate manager at work, Most of the managers have told me that I should have the job. I know I should have the job. If Tod were still the boss, I would have the job. I am pissed about this. Also about never getting employee of the month.

There was lots of drama in the house, but unlike some people I'm not going to put it all over the internet and pretend that makes me more mature than others. I made everbody steak dinner right before the end of the semester. Lisa's gone and I miss her. Mahmet is the dude living in her room now. He's alright, but its only going to be the two of us staying on next year. Which means we need to find four people to live in our gigantic house in a really nice neighborhood. Also Manisha and Holly made pie and I made cookies.

Winter break was pretty great. Right after a nice (by my family's standards) Christmas holiday, I went on a ski trip with some people from work. I went skiing with Hannah and Sharon Kim, while Ellen Kim tried to help Jaskot and Amanda down the mountain alive, and JessO and Anne got drunk. Then we all went snow tubing, then went out to dinner, then we partied in our room and it was a lot of fun. Then, the day after I got back from that I went on a trip to Baltimore and Washington D.C. with The WG and some other people. We went to the the world's tallest pentagonal building and the aquarium and got drunk, went sight seeing in Washington and got drunk , went shopping or sightseeing in Baltimore and got drunk, and went clubbing to celebrate New Years and got drunk. It was one of the best times ever. To the left, to the left.

I was a big jerk face douche bag for a while and didn't talk to or see any of my friends. I've been slowly trying to get away from that, but would appreciate a little help. Like maybe taking the trouble to contact me or invite me somewhere would be nice. Or not blowing me off and then lying about it would be cool too. Like if you know me, you should know that  I almost never get mad or visibly upset about stuff. Well, I was really angry about that party and I'm really hurt by all the good times everybody seems to have but never even mentions to me. Please don't make me hate you, I have few enough friends as it is.

Coming soon: class in an hour, Kim's birthday party, Darryl Hammond and Mark Curry stand up show, getting paid tomorrow and finally being able to buy food. Turn in next time for another exciting episode of Greg.

ps 24 is the best show ever and I'm totally addicted to it.

6:04 am
I miss last year. Looking back on it, I think from when junior year ended to when senior year ended was the best time of my life.
That summer I feel in love with photography again. I got to live completely on my own but still see friends all the time. Whenever I went home there was a kickass party happening. The time we went from that house party to the lot, to a house, to stealing beer, to the park, to Bagel Chateau, to the beach with my family, to the superhero party at Lewis St was something I'll remember forever.
That fall was children's lit and working at the stud. Throwing parties at my place or showing up to them at The Ranch. Settlers,Mage, and just chilling in South. Dane Cook and the Dane Cook on SNL party in West. Rolling up the AMC in Hamilton like 10 deep at least once a month. Even after Georgia, that crazy Saturday night in Gettysburg with the best game of kings ever and running a muck is still my fondest ultimate memory.
Back in the spring people would always come over to chill or I could see the guys in South, the girls in East, or the other guys in West. The ultimate formal. The toga party. Kevin Smith and Pablo Fransisco. My first real dating experience. Learning so so much about teaching and what I really want to do with my life in MST and MTT. Two absolutly amazing solid weeks of fun in Georgia for spring break and all over for senior week into one of my best friend's birthdays. And what I really miss most of all was showing up for lunch in the stud and pulling two tables together and knowing they would be more than filled with my friends within minutes.
I'm sure I'm unintentionally omitting a ton of great shit too. Probably some bad stuff too, but I don't care right now.
I know we can never get back the past times that we loved, but sometimes I really wish otherwise.

*EDIT* so in an effort to be less completely negative: tonight may have been the most fun I've ever had at work.
Of course there's other stuff going on in my life, but I feel less an less compelled to write down any of it on the internet.

1:19 pm - Me via some other guy
Stolen from Wyatt, Helena, and Randy
Autobio
Body: This is actually a pretty decent survey. It asks questions that haven't been asked a thousand times over. It asks questions that aren't obviously from a kid's point of view (in the last month, ever been caught sneakin out?). This survey might actually give your friends a chance to know you better, so please repost and give your friends that chance!

Were you the first?: Second.
Were your parents married when you were born?: Yeah and still are.
What is your birthday?: November 27, 1983

Part 4: Your Personality

How high/low is your self esteem?: Whoah, you can feel esteem in yourself?!? When did this happen?
Do you get depressed about things easily?: Some things: very easily. Others: not at all.
Do you live life to the fullest?: Nah. I gotta do more with myself.

Part 5: Appearance

Are you comfortable with the way you look?: No.
Do you have any piercings?: No and that's not likely to change.
How do you dress? Prep/jock/punk/nerd/bum.

Part 6: The Past

Were you a strange child?: A little and I don't see that changing any time soon.
What did you used to love that you no longer do?: Mischiefing

Are you a fussy eater?: I'll eat what you put in front of me, even if I would never think to make or buy it on my own.

Part 10: Relationships and Love

Do you think love is the best feeling in the world?: It certainly is portrayed that way. And having no practical experiance, I'm going to have to go with yes.
Do you believe in love at first sight?: Hah, yeah. We were talking about this at work today and I decided that love at first sight was when you meet somebody and suddenly your scale goes to 11.
What have you been in more often, lust or love? I've thought that I've "loved" people, but I know that I've never been in love. I'm not a very lusty or sexual person, but I'll have to go with that.
Love is: Caring about somebody else more than you care about your own damn self.

You scored as White. White represents purity, calmness and innocense, and you fit all this. You are angelic to the core and would never dream of hurting anyone on purpose. The events of this world tend to shock you and you cannot wait to escape to a better place. You believe in the good of people. Your kind and loving nature makes you very hard to resist.

4:53 pm - Another one?
Oh, man. Remember when I said I was going to try and get in touch with my friends around here? I did. For a few days. I saw none of them. I fail.
That Bender/Haas party I mentioned? Hugely fun. Missed my train here, so I drove over to Westfield to meet up with people there. Train to Newark and then PATH into the city. Walked around for a bit and then about 12 of us had dinner at a pretty nice (and expensive restaurant) downtown called Bar 6. Best hanger steak ever. After dinner, Bender, Haas, Lisa B, Tim M, Wexler, Manisha, Charles, Julie Coats, and two of Bender's China friends wondered around looking for a bar. Yeah, I know. We had to look for a bar in the village...In any event, we soon found one that looked right for us and proceeded to take it over for the rest of the night. We fucking owned that shit. We sang, we danced, we played games, told jokes, and got really trashed. I loved it.
Last weekend was a pretty good time as well. Went down Friday afternoon to buy a movie ticket for opening night Pirates and do some house work. Saw Pirates like 4 rows from the front with Julie, Haas, Wexler, and Kristen. I thought it was ehh. Only one sword fight in the whole movie, but it was a badass one. There third needs more buckling of swashes. Got dinner with everybody but Kristen afterwards and we were all fat. Took them back to the house and the verdict was unanamous: my house fucking rocks. Chilled with aT and Holly and read Angel's comic books friday and saturday night. Saturday day was Tim's graduation party in direct conflict with Pinapples' practice. But I knew Tim first so I didn't have a choice. Met some cool kids (and one I hated) and had a good time playing games, jokeing, and eating with a bunch I already liked.
The 4th was something of a disapointment. It was my first weekday off in quite some time, so I spent most of it asleep or half asleep or something. I'm not sure. None of the people I was trying to hang out with got back to me, so I wondered down to the fireworks myself in the hopes of running into people. I ended up hanging out with Biz, Andy, Shawn, his girlfriend who knows my name, and Hunter (who paid my 2 whole bucks to roll down Flood's hill as soon as I could stand up. Sucker.) Chilled at the Biz house for a bit catching up with Mike and meeting some of Jill's friends. Saw Renee from the pool for the first time in like 7 years. That was cool.
Ultimate is getting cancelled alot on account of rain. But the one time I went last week to play pickup I did pretty well. Probably because we were only playing 4 on 4 and only 2 people from my team were there, but playing well is playing well.
Work never gets cancelled. We just sit there in the rain because those bastards always HAVE to get there laps in, every morning. Hate them so much.
Must go teach private lesson now. Peace.

Hi, livejournal. How are you?
Hey, Greg. Long time, no see. I'm good. Filled with people writing stuff. The usual. And you?
Yeah...nobody really sees me these days. I'm being a dumbass and a recluse. Most days I wake up around five AM or so to go to work. I'm working at the pool this summer, even though I said two years ago would be my last summer there. But, I knew Paul would hire me, give me lots of hours, and days off when I need them. That's more than I can say for Todd at the BSC or trying to get a new job someplace. Its not fun to work at the pool anymore. Paul flips out all the time, threatens to fire people like it's his job, and yells at Lexi, Cary, and me as if we weren't his best and most experianced gaurds. I'm just guarding and teaching classes this summer, because I didn't think I would have the time to coach. So, the coaches this year are Nomi, Claudia, and Justin. I hope they do well, because I really did love the swim team. But, after being at school last summer and really wanting to get better at ultimate, I thought it would be better to leave the job to them and spend some of time playing summer league.
I joined skylands ultimate league, a draft league that plays about half an hour down 78 from here. The team I was randomly assigned to is pretty much all CHS alumni. Pretty funny. Anthony Nunez and Brett Druck are the only people I knew when we started, but I'm getting to know everybody else. They're good guys for the most part, but I dunno about the whole team. Like, they all play really well as a team together, and I'm kinda just there. And I'm sucking. I know I'm not a great ultimate player, but I am a decently good one. Playing like a crap ass bitch newby is not being fun for me. We're the best team in the league and play a very different style game than TCNJ does. Since it's summer league, there's no practices, so its probably going to be really hard for me to get into playing well with this team.
Tomorrow is Bender's birthday/his and Haas's going away party in the city and I think that's going to be a lot of fun. I need that, because I said previously, I'm being a recluse lately. I never really call or IM anybody and of course nobody ever tries to get in touch with me, so I end up not doing anything all the time. It really sucks, but the longer it goes on, the harder it is to break the cycle.
Fun things I've done in the past two months: I've been down to our house in Ewing a few times to work on cleaning it up and just hanging out. It's gotten really really nice. Holly keeps saying she wonders how we got the place and when our parents are coming home. I know exactly what she means. One day Tim, Deirdre, Dave, and Ryan came over to hang out with us, when almost everybody but Natalie was home and it was great to know that such a nice place with such great people is there for me to live in. I love it and I'm going to be there next weekend for Tim Martin's grad party and pineapples' practice.
We had one practice earlier this summer, followed by a party at Travis's new off campus house and that was a good time. 6 solid hours of frisbee and then a few more of being fat and drunk with people I love.
I had my first experience "going clubbing". It kinda sucked and kinda didn't. A whole bunch of us from SO/MW went to a couple of places in Morristown, and couldn't get in because some of us were dudes under 21. So we ended up having a good time at somebody's house instead after all the crap.
A few good parties at Bender, Mike R, and Randy's houses.
A bit of chilling with some friends, but not as much as I'd like due to the aforementioned living up my own ass.
I guess that's it. Thanks for listening to me, LJ and I hope I'll talk to you soon.

11:07 pm - What?!
Greg is updating his journal again? Why I never!

Yeah, math lesson in school went amazingly. I had a cool hook (giant novelty dollar bills), good small group work, good discussion, good lecture, good team work, and more good discussion. I got my review back yesterday from my cooperating teacher and he's all like "Mr. Z is awesome. Here's a huge list of great things Mr. Z did. Look at all these specific examples of super good teachingness." And it was actually helpful too because he also pointed the two areas I could stand to improve upon. I can't wait to teach my science lesson next Friday for Earth Day.

Sectionals was good. Racheal and I got there at the end of the first game, where we kicked ass. The second game against Cooper Union, we also kicked ass. Then we switched gears into just getting stomped. We played really well (even our mediocore second tier players like me), but just couldn't match up against Columbia and Princeton etc. I had one fucking sweet play where about 5/6 players from both teams chased a floater and I came down with it, to the astonishment of all. Looked up field, saw PJ running for the end zone with a good lead on his man and gave him a nicely placed huck for the point. Saturday the weather sucked, so we bounced to Randal's house after losing our first game and most everybody declining consolation games since we were out of the running. We had hot chocolate and pizza and watched game show network very loudly.

Saturday night was freaking sweet. Toga party was nuts. There was the flip cup world series, won by Team Awesome: Smita, Mike Green, Mike Green's little brother, first Ali and then James, Zahra, Sam, and me. There was a genuine dance party in my little apartment. There was a damn good time.

Klemic came by twice this past week, once with Cadence and once with his sister to go see Pablo Fransisco. That was hilarious. I honestly liked Dean Edwards act better, but I died for the Little Tortilla Boy bit. That whole show was just too funny.

Last night was a mini party at the girls' townhouse. Tim, aT, Lisa, Holly, Deirdre, Christie, and I got drunk, climbed walls, lifted people, walked around campus smoking, played Wheel of Fortune on the NES, and just had a good time hanging out. I am so excited about living with those guys next year.

And yesterday afternoon, there were the two biggest and most vibrant rainbows I've ever seen.

Most exhausting weekend ever. Friday after practice I went to see Manisha in the Vagina Monologues (which was actually pretty good). Then after that I went to Rindosh's birthday party in South. Stayed up late getting drunk and playing games with friends and other cool kids. Saturday woke up early for an ultimate tournament. Spent several hours running around in the cold, untill I was sure my legs were going to snap in half. Had fun despite the freezing, wind, frozen mud, etc. Got on a train with Haas to meet up with Bender and his brother. Walked around in the cold, bought a hooka(!), smoked, walked around in the cold, ate, Indian food, and walked around in the cold some more. Sunday spent the morning and early afternoon dead to the world before starting on homework and putting new pictures on facebook. Played card games and walked tv with Foster, Alex, James, Jaime, Bender untill 10. At that point I went to the dinner with a bunch of people to say good bye to JessO, because she's taking the semester off. Then Jess, Ellen, Christie, and I went to Firkin to drink and play photo hunt and darts untill way late. I slept through structures and mechanisms today.

I'm going to pretend that this quiz says Roland Deschain, gunslinger in place of cowboy lawman. But I like the result either way.
Cowboy Lawman
You scored 4 Honor, 9 Justice, 9 Adventure, and 1 Individuality!
You don't just want to explore the open plains, you want to tame it. You're a man with scruples and the steel nerves to back them up. You'd fit well with gunslingers like Wyatt Earp and Bat Masterson. You're a Cowboy Lawman.

Wear your star and sixgun proud, Marshall. You're gonna do just fine!

2:24 pm - random shiz
So first off I was just wondering who "blah", "hidden", and "chocolate panties"?? are. 'Cause you filled out that thing I had in my journal last entry and I'll be damned if I can more than guess at it. I would also like to know why the rest of you haven't done it yet, you bad lj friends, you.

Continuing the epic saga of my lack of love life, I tried again. She is apparently very impressed with my persistance, thinks I gots balls, and think I'm amazingly sweet (because I made her a valentine's day card). She was my valentine, but still very not interested in going out with me. I have very mixed feelings about this, but then again I am a big fat loser.

In school news, I haven't been going to structures and mechanisms at all lately. This is because I fucking hate it (you may recall my having mentioned this previously). This is not really a good idea on my part, but I tend to make lots of bad choices based on how I feel about things. I think I'm going to have to talk to my professor very soon and hash shit out.

It's so nice out. I don't like it. This is not what February should be like. Saturday night is what February should be like.

10:27 pm
So yesterday I was up and doing shit for 21 hours of the day.
Started with school. I got placed in Orchard Hill Elementary (Fucking Neil's old school!) with Lisa Castano's second grade. The other two people from my class are a grandmother/mother pair who have their own thing going on, not the one other guy whom I already know or any of the hot girls. Such is life. The kids are pretty much great though. I already got invited to a party and to play games with them. We did mostly teacher's aid type stuff: helping with problems, proctoring a spelling test, and going around the keeping an eye on who needs help and who needs some disicpline. I liked it.
After that was pick up ultimate at Mercer County Field. So much fun. We played until it got too dark to see the disc. My calves hurt (still!) from Monday's ridiculous workout. But it was all good in the end. Getting there, Dave nearly killed us a couple of times. So I went home with Travis and James and picked up all us some booze.
Because Manisha later dragged me off to a Vagina Monologues cast party. So I dragged Haas and Smita along with me. It was pretty awkward. Not just because nearly all the conversation was "you vagina is amazing!" "no, YOUR vagina is amazing!" but because it was just a pretty insular group of people. So the three of us ended up walking back to here to try and fail to buy some herb, drink, play drunk Halo, and just talk and chill for a few hours. It was good time.
Today was naught but sleep, homework, and chilling with Foster. We walked a pretty cool discovery channel documentary about this crazy guy who spent 13 summers living with Alaskan grizzly bears and foxes. Now, more sleep.

7:40 am - school placement
Well, here we go. I've got my tie on and I'm ready to head out to my elementary school placement in a fancy pants k-2 almost the size of CHS. I feel ready for it.

The hard part for me is always not cussing in front of the kids.

current mood: hyper

Taking class I don't like is a problem for me. I don't go. I just decide that its okay for me not to show up to class because I don't enjoy it. I need to fix this and right quick.

1:42 pm - can't last
I'm sick of structures and mechanisms already. Finkral was a great professor and now that he quit, this new lady sucks. She says lets have a discussion and then goes on to make an incredably boring lecture with jumbled notes on the board. And while I understand that she has a background in electronics, the class is called structures and mechanims, not random electronics dealies. If I wanted to take fucking circuits, I would have signed up for fucking circuits. Plus we've already had three homework assignments and a lab report and we're going to have a test next week. I don't like it one bit.

current mood: aggravated

Holy crap. Frisbee practice. Holy crap. We did more conditioning in the past two hours than in all of last semester put together. We worked so hard that I did something I haven't done since senior year of high school: I puked just from working out mad hard. I just remember swimming at Elite and Bill and Adrienne telling me about her former olympic weight lifter dad. He always said that it didn't count as a real practice unless he had to vomit. I don't quite think that's the best philosophy, but when I was done I felt great. Tired and sore, but great. I think I might actually get into real solid shape for the first time since college started.

Nadia is dumb because she's the only person on my friends list who would get the title reference and she quit lj.

current mood: rejuvenated

This first week at school as been pretty much all good stuff.
I've had all of my classes and gotten a good idea of what's going on with the ones where the professor showed up. One tech class to fullfill a M/S/T requirement and two education classes with both classroom and teaching components. I'm exited and nervous about when we finally go to the schools. I love kids and the whole teaching/learning deal, but I haven't been on site since analysis of classroom behavior in sophmore year and I missed out on coaching the swim team last summer.
I've gotten to see most of friends here and that of course can't help but make me happy. There was another party at Wexler's on friday and I brought Manisha along. I had a good time and so did she, so that's all good. Before that I had lunch with JessO (who made my day by treating and giving me one of her shifts at work) and went to see Underworld: Evolution with Kelman and Meickoff (but not Vinny, because he was a loser and he wanted to "hang out" and "go to dinner" with "more than three" of his friends). I loved it. Not as much as I loved Underworld, because there wasn't nearly enough bad acting, but there was crazy fights, ridiculous and transparent plot twists, a dude thrown through a helicopter roter, and naked Kate Beckinsale! Plus room for another sequel.
Last night Beth and Mike came up so I got to hang with them and some of Mike's TCNJ alumni friends. I didn't really like any of them, so we played pool and videogames and then went over to chill with Lisa, Holly, and Tim in East.
Ultimate practice starts for reals tomorrow and I'm looking foward to that.

Your Social Dysfunction:
Normal



Being average in terms of how social you are, as well as the amount of self-esteem you have, you're pretty much normal. Good on you.

Now I don't believe that at all. I'm way too depressed, introverted, and anti-prevaling culture to be "normal".
