Oh the memories... [14 Aug 2004|12:21am]
[ mood | amused ]

For those of you who didn't know, karabearblu celebrated her vaunted 20th birthday at the beginning of last week.  Quite simply, birthdays are a rather "eventful" occasion for the members of the Fab Four (Brandon, Kara, Laura, and myself).  More specifically, one of our birthdays allows the others to put their maniacal and contriving imaginations to good use.  During Brandon's birthday last spring, his wonderful yet vulnerable pickup truck became the first victim of the now (in)famous "Fab Four Vandalization."  Between the toilet paper, glitter, and bingo markers, Brandon's clean and polished truck became a homing beacon for homeless men and trash collectors everywhere.  Next was my birthday in May, during which my car also suffered a horrible, malicious, brutal, rancorous, vengeful, unmerciful, vicious, sadistic, damaging, virulent, and loathsome attack and defacement.  Rather than stop there and call it even, the perpetrators continued by covering the door to my dorm room with MANY streamers, balloons, and the unforgettable "door handle penis."  Not wanting to be outdone, Kara's birthday had to be taken a step further.  In addition to the room and car "decorations," Kara agreed to allow Laura and I to decorate HER for a day.  What follows is a picture summary of her birthday evening, step by drunken step. 

WARNING:  These pictures are not for the fashion-minded with a weak stomach.  Her outfit DOES NOT match and should be considered armed and hideous.


Location 1:  Applebee's

Here is everyone, all 12 of us, who went out to dinner at Applebee's to celebrate Kara's 20th birthday.

Here is Kara in her wonderful, mismatching outfit.  Laura and I picked out the shirt at Forever 21 during a trip to Indy.  The boa and teeth were supplied later along with my WONDERFUL sunglasses.

Here is Kara with her SEXY teeth, sipping on a soft drink.  How could anyone resist such a charming smile?



Location 2:  Kara's Apartment

After going to Applebee's, we convinced Kara to head home with Laura to change before we headed out for alcohol and went over to my place.  This is what she came home to...

Wow, did a huge spider get happy all over Kara's car?  NO!  But four rolls of Saran Wrap did!

No folks, you aren't mistaken.  That is UNDERWEAR trapped inside the layers of saran wrap!  Nice granny-panties Kara!

The culprits autograph their work in one of the huge portions of Vaseline placed inbetween the layers.  Great job to Cassie, Jeff (bgkid03)</span>, myself (pants_r_good)</span>, and Laura (userinfo</b></a>

Back home again... [05 Aug 2004|11:02am]
As I head home to Fort Wayne today, I realize just how much time I've spent in Muncie this past year, and more importantly, just how little time I've spent with my family and those friends which I have known the longest. It's very hard to try and meet several time commitments everyday, especially when all of those time commitments are in another city from where your family and friends are located. Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of people and things in Muncie that make it worth coming back to, but still...it's nice to get the short break. Here's a small list of the reasons why it's good to get out of Muncie:

- No more temptation to use my new vacuum cleaner ONCE AGAIN to pick up dirt that isn't there. (That thing is sooooooo fun to use).

- No worries about RL trying to call me in to work...I have a legitimate excuse (F U seafood).

- A much-needed break from the kitten with NEVER-ENDING energy (who also likes to tear up my arms, legs, neck, furniture, desk, magazines, trash cans, pillows, chairs, blankets, boxes, couches, TV stands, shirts, pants, underwear - when i wear it :P, speakers, candles, posters, computers, and lighters - whoa scary.)

- Muncie water, which is a danger unto itself to drink.

- Muncie people (who may be the salt of the earth, but GOD that is some nasty salt with race car hats and mullets).

- Leaving my house and going to one with NO CREAKS IN THE FLOOR (Lord I HATE creaks in floors)

- Leaving a 4-foot pool in Muncie that is 150 feet away and going to use my sisters 8-foot pool at her house.

- No ANNOYING customers to deal with and no OLD PEOPLE for me to wait on (well, there are PLENTY of old people in Fort Wayne, but at least this time I can hit the gas and run over them...ok maybe not).

- A break from some self-invented "detectives" I know

- A chance to finally figure out what the heck is wrong with this computer and Internet Explorer (and I have steel-toed boots at home in case some serious kicking is required).

- Heading to Glenbrook Mall and Jefferson Pointe to look through a wider selection of clothing stores...and perhaps goodwill stores...for a certain person's upcoming birthday.

- A chance to see friends that have threatened to KILL ME if I did not appear on their doorstep within the next 24 hours (aww...that's really missing me, in a scary/homicidal way).

- A chance to get my oil changed by someone with a higher IQ than teeth in their mouth (no offense Muncie mechanics, but WHOA).

And last, but not least, a chance to spend money...period.

Have a wonderful Thursday.

[ mood | contemplative ]

Do you ever just sit there at night and contemplate how the smallest of actions, the most insignificant of hesitations, the very randomness of life itself has somehow led you down the path to where your life is at today?

I sit here tonight, thinking about some of the small things that I have said, thought, and done recently...not knowing at that time how much they would have an effect on my life later. The hesitations of a few seconds, a few days longer, can have a drastic impact on your life.

It continues to baffle and amaze me at how completely random and unpredictable our lives are. Once you think you have things planned out completely, something happens that totally changes the way you view things and the way you live your life. You didn't ask for it, but it happened, nonetheless.

I guess that's part of the beauty of life...the raw appeal of not knowing what is coming next, not knowing how to plan for tomorrow. Life keeps you on your toes, and if you're not always on the ready, it will set you on your ass.

Most of all, life is the ultimate teacher, the ultimate revealer. If you wait long enough, you can find the answers to most of your questions through the experiences of your life. Life and time reveals a great deal about the people you encounter everyday...whether they will be there tomorrow, whether they will stand by you. Most of all, you learn about the kind of person that you are, for better or for worse.

How did I get to this point in my life? What would have happened if I stayed an hour longer, if I had said something sooner, if I hadn't happened to stumble across things on accident? How would my life be different today? How would I, as a person, be different today? More importantly, would I WANT it to be different?

Not a chance.

This is my life.

This is who I am.

The day of reckoning is at hand... [26 May 2004|12:11am]
[ mood | anxious ]

In 48 hours, my life will change forever...in 2880 minutes, I will no longer be the innocent child that I try so hard to maintain myself as...in 172800 seconds, I will enter the world of bars, booze, and liquor stores.  In 2 days, I will be 21 years old.  More specifically, I will be just plain OLD.

I have mixed feelings about this birthday, much like I had with my last one.  People laugh and snicker when I tell them that 20 was a bad year for me, but in all reality, I really had trouble coming to grips with the fact that I was no longer a teenager.  I no longer had an excuse to be immature, irrational, spontaneous, and carefree.  I was now an adult, some one expected to be responsible, predictable, and boring.  Well frankly, that's bullshit.  I refuse to be old, I refuse to grow up.  I wanna be immature, dammit.  It's what I do best.

After this birthday...it's all downhill...

I think that more than anything else, I am extremely worried that within a few years, I will find myself watching Richard Simmons' "Sweatin to the Oldies" videos with my mom and talking about how receding hairlines suck and how fun it was back in the "good ol' days."  I'll have a steady job (hopefully), mortgage payments, sterile and boring clothes to wear, and some sort of pet that I spoil and baby to death to replace the lack of happiness and contentment in my life.

Or I could just stay in college forever and be one of those scary 28-year olds that continue to show up to house parties lookin for some loving.

I don't want to grow up; I refuse to.  A 21-year old Jason will be no different than a 20-year old Jason...well, other than the fact that the alcohol will flow aplenty from my humble abode.  Screw you adulthood, I'm going to whine my way back to being a teenager and be reckless and irresponsible and mooch off my parents and sleep in really late.  Yeah, sounds like a plan...

Presenting the 2004 Concept Car for the new Mitsubishi Eclipse...

As an Eclipse owner myself, I can't decide how to feel about this new car.  There are good and bad qualities to it.  On that note, I'm going to run...I'd better do it now while I'm still young :-P...

Wow... [04 May 2004|12:51am]

I simply could not resist posting such an awesome drawing done by none other than the wonderful artist prayerfeather ...  This has to be one of the most interesting things I have ever seen done to me before.  She took a picture of me, cut it into strips, pasted half of the strips onto paper and drew the missing parts inbetween.  You can barely tell the difference.  You are gifted Laura...

Interesting test... [15 Apr 2004|12:34am]
The Boy Next Door
Random Gentle Love Dreamer (RGLDm)

    Kind, yearning, playful, you are The Boy Next Door. You're looking for real Love, a lot like girls do. It might not be manly, but it's sweet. 

    We think the next three years will be very exciting and fruitful ones for you. Your spontaneous, creative side makes you a charming date, and we think you have a horny side just waiting to shine. Or glisten, rather. You enter new relationships unusually hopeful, and the first moments are especially glorious. If you've had some things not work out before, so what.

    On paper, most girls would name the Boy Next Door as their ideal mate. In the real world, however, you're often passed over for more dangerous or masculine men. You're the typical "nice guy:" without just a touch of cockiness, you're doomed with girls. A shoulder to cry on? Okay, sure. But never a penis to hold.

    More than any other type, Boys Next Door evolve as they get older. As we said, many find true love, but some fail miserably in the search. These tarnished few grow up to be The Men Next Door, who are creepy as hell, offering backrubs to kids and what not.


CONSIDER: The Maid of Honor, The Peach


Thank you jackola for this quiz.  Everyone else let me know what you get...

Time for a breather... [08 Apr 2004|12:24am]
[ mood | exhausted ]

Well, 11,346 words and 57 pages later and my three nights of paper writing HELL are now over.  My head and hair have lost their feeling for a record 13.5 hours and counting.  You could literally drop anything on the top of my head right now and I wouldn't feel a thing.  Oh who am I kidding, that's nothing new...

So I realized today that I flirt way too much with the people that I encounter everyday.  I think I do it for the simple excitement and spontaneous connection that it allows me to have with others.  I have found as of late, however, that my innocent flirting might be hurting others who put much more into it.  I'm sorry, I'll be a good boy from now on :-P ...

For anyone who is unsure how to regain a lost friendship that you want back in your life, just be honest and apologize.  This is a valuable lesson that I have learned lately.

It's really hard to determine whether or not someone has special feelings for you.  I have found that this can be particularly true when you have never talked to that person before, haha.

While I would never want to remain the Midwest for any longer than I have to, I have found certain reasons for Ohio to look tempting as of late...

Enough of this random silliness.

Back from Florida, Into the Shitstorm of Indiana... [24 Mar 2004|08:42pm]
[ mood | creative ]

Well folks, I'm back from Florida...rested, burnt, and still harboring a deep sense of contempt for Indiana.  I really should stop taking trips to fair-weathered, beautiful places because each time I do, I am reminded more and more of just how sad, drab, and yucky a place such as Muncie, Indiana actually is.  Nonetheless, this trip provided me with a great opportunity to leave behind all of the stress and deadlines that work and school constantly place upon me.  It was great being able to go with Laura </a>(umm...sorry, I don't know how to link your journal to your name Laura, :\) because I didn't feel rushed or pressured to do a bunch of things that I didn't want to.  She and I got the opportunity to talk about a variety of things dealing with life in general.  Yes, we got our mad philisophical thinking skillz on...  Anyway, without further interruption, here are a few of the pictures that resulted from the trip...

Do you ever feel like your life is one big, emotional rollercoaster? [05 Mar 2004|04:21pm]
[ mood | devious ]

As I was walking home from the student center today, I realized just how utterly perfect this moment in my life truly was. For one of the few times in my life, I felt that everything was going my way, that things could not possibly get much better. I am surrounded by perfect weather, perfect thoughts and emotions, and most importantly, perfect and irreplaceable relationships that mean the world to me. As most of you know, I'm not an overly religious person, but it was at a moment like this that I felt deeply humbled and blessed by the situation that my life is in at this moment. There have been a few wonderful people that I have met recently, one in particular, that have quickly become some of my closest and most cherished friends. I guess I just count myself lucky to have started all of these great new friendships with people and still have all of the great friends that have decided to stick with me (bribery works wonders... :P). Wow, I really need to invest in some cheap, cheesy, romantic music to play on the background for these mushy entries...

All was well...until I got home...then reality hit.

I have a HUGE project due on Monday for my Social Studies Education methods class. This project requires multiple hours of work and will most likely take up a great deal of my free weekend. I have to work from 5:30 p.m. to midnight tonight, get back up Saturday and train a whole bunch of people at my work from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m., then work from noon till about 8 p.m. or so. I will most likely have to come home and work on said project for a considerable amount of time, then hopefully go out for whatever short amount of fun I can allow myself this weekend. I then work at 11 a.m. on Sunday until about 4 p.m., with the remainder of the day being used to complete the project. Sometime during this weekend, I also have to finish a History report, finish my observation/teaching journal, and finalize hotel plans.

Do you see the dilemma? I have all of these great things surrounding me, yet no time to enjoy them. Between work and school, 90% of my time has been accounted for and taken away. I feel that my life has the opportunity to be so much more fulfilling and fun, but my hands are tied. When I am around my friends and out enjoying myself, I really feel like the luckiest and happiest person in the world. When I go to work and school, all of this happiness slowly fades away until I am back to regular old Jason *eek :P*, just trying to get through things. How do I balance this? How do I stop the rollercoaster ride of ups and downs (if you consider my downs a REAL down...you all know that even when I'm down, I'm still optimistic) in my life? I know, I know... "WORK LESS HOURS CAPTAIN OBVIOUS!" Well thank you :). I don't know the point of this post. I guess it's just good to let people know how I'm feeling sometimes, what is going through my head. Anyway...

Have a great weekend everybody! Hopefully I will update again before Spring Break hits, but if not, ENJOY YOURSELVES, BE SAFE (BUT NOT TOO SAFE.. :D), and most importantly, make sure to get all of the sand out of your crack. Laterz :)

My weekend excitement...this should take two seconds...


Got done with class at 3, worked at good ol' Dead Lobster from 5:30 till 1 a.m. I came home and tried calling three people that I had prior plans with for the evening, and of course none responded. I later got a call from one of them...and this friend was in a tough situation. I won't get into gritty details, but through a series of events, the two people he was hanging around with for the night were taken away by the police for public intoxication and sent to the hospital. Simply put, he was left by himself with no idea what to do. He walked all the way to Ball Memorial Hospital in the freezing cold to try and see these people, only to somehow lose his wallet on the way there. This pushed him over the edge and I ran and helped him retrace his steps through campus and around the hospital trying to find his wallet. Let me remind you that this was at 4:00 a.m. and on a record cold night (I think it got down to -6 with a wind chill of -20). We were out there for 2 hours looking and never did find it. (He did end up findihg it later...someone had turned it into the hospital).


Looked at a possible housing option for next year. Since I now have my student teaching moved to the fall of '05, I have another full year of school at Ball State and thus another year of housing down in Muncie. I think I will end up living with one of my roommates from this year. We'll have to see how that goes.

Came in at 4:00 to work...worked until 1:00 a.m. (as a sidenote, people in Muncie can be cheap bastards if you work in a restaurant...got love the MWT )

I then proceeded to go to a party that a coworker was throwing. Of course, I had to decide to let the raging alcoholic drive us there, so coming back from it was rather fun.


Came in at 10:45 a.m. and worked till 5 p.m. or so...rushed back and watched the SuperBowl and Janet's boob (OMG). I've basically done nothing this whole night, which has been nice.

Alright, time to get to bed so I can get up at the buttcrack of dawn and go pay my speeding ticket. Sorry this entry isn't riveting and exciting, I'm too tired to be witty.
