Surprise? I think not.

First off, I am going to post this privately so SOME people don't tip others off *cough* Jackie and Michelle *cough*  But I will unlock later after today.

My friends SUCK HARD at being subtle.  Tonight most likely is going to be my very belated b-day party because my friends -- for some odd reason -- think that it is a good idea to even celebrate my birthday.  The problem is that I frankly don't give a damn about my birthday.  But that's besides the point.  Why do I even think there is going to be a party?  Well here's the clues...

1. The Tuesday after my birthday: In one of my conversations with Komal on Facebook -- basically an insulting session against me on how I'm pissing her off for some odd reason again -- she said "oh don't worry, we're still planning something <insert evil laugh>."  Subtle fail.  But that's not enough of a reason for me to think "party" for today.

2. Mason: When we were planning for Anime club last week on Thursday, he made a gesture towards me with his eyes while talking to Komal saying "Do I get him or Cal...?"  And Komal basically just said, "Shut up Mason."  Subtle fail.  I knew something was up, but not certain on what.  And yes, I have the abilities of a CREEPER, but I don't use them for evil.  Why do you think I wear headsets all the time?  That way I don't take notice on small stuff and seem like a creeper.

3. Cal: Yes him.  He merely confirmed about the Mason clue.  "Oh, Saturday at 7, we're heading over to the Morse crew's place.  Komal says if you're not there, she'll kill you."  Subtle fail maximum pajamas.  One: Our group has NEVER planned ahead for a time to hang out, EVER.  It has always been a last minute thing and it annoys me simply because I never have the time when they make last minute plans.  Two: "Komal says if you're not there, she'll kill you"?  Really?  Unless it is of utmost importance, she doesn't give a damn.  Three: Why is CAL telling me this?  Unless he's the one who has to make sure I am there, I doubt he has to inform me.  Seriously.

4. Komal and Priya: Yesterday before club, they told me that we are going to their place at 6:30.  Obviously Cal got the wrong information.  But apparently this event is SO important that they had to tell me upfront?  Really?  Fail.

5. Morse Apartment: On the dining table desk, there was a sheet of paper of names checked off, words like "cake mix" and such.  My name was not on there.  That, and next to "Joey" had the word "drinks."  Once Komal figured out that I spotted this paper, she snatched it away, crumpled it up, and tossed it in the trashcan.  While she was "sly" saying that it was an Xmas gift checklist... that assumes that I am not getting a gift but everyone else is.  Since that is not characteristic of these people... Am gonna say EPIC FAIL on them.

Those are my clues.  I believe that I am correct and will unlock this entry as soon as I am either proven right or wrong.  I'll post another entry right after to say "I win" or "I fail."  See you then!


Edit:
I was completely right.  Ladies and gentlemen, behold my deductive reasoning skills!

Um... today just started.  So I am wearing Blue Pajamas and a black t-shirt...  yeah, am gonna go ahead and put in the next day.

Day 15 – You have Dreams?

Okay... if this is referring to sleeping dreams, then here it is: I don't have them.  Haven't had a dream in years.  Ever.  No, am not talking about one of those "I had a dream, but I forgot it."  I mean legit, don't. have. dreams.  I get long deja vu, as in I "day dream" an event and then it happens later that week, but that's about it.  

If this is referring to future dreams/goals... eh, they are somewhat limited.  If things go according to schedule, I hope to become a history teacher somewhere in a public high/middle school, live in AN ACTUAL HOME and live there longer than 6 years, and hopefully visit Japan, Germany, Norway, Canada, Britain, and Luxembourg one day.  That's it.  Though with my luck... that's pushing WAY too much.  I'll just be happy with a job.  I've learned never to trust in the future because  the future has been known to give me a sack of shit.  So blarg.

Day 13 - The Week

Considering that this week only started, let's do LAST week.

Last week was not too different from any other week really.  Monday was classes, then Comic Book Club (lent my Superman Red Son out to one of my friends there).  Afterward it was off to bed.  Tuesday, same dealio as usual.  Went to class, saw some friends between classes (like Mason and Michelle), and so on.  Wednesday was essentially the same deal.  Well, minus the seeing friends thing.  Thursday classes, then went to Simpson Dining Hall with Sana, then home.  Friday  is usually the most extravagant of all the days of the week... simply because of Anime Club.  Ye Gods, my life is currently climaxed only by Anime Club.  Meh, such is a life by a man of my caliber.  At Anime Club, saw friends, watched Anime, played games, saw Saint Seiya at Sana's with Priya and Cal, and then home.  Saturday was the prototype morning breakfast (which was a failure to unite most people, so we'll try again another time).  Later that day, Cal bought a game system that played NES and SNES games, thus nerding out ensued.  We played many games (most of which were mine from home) at Sana's place and much cursing ensued.

Yep.  That's my week in a nutshell.

Day 9 - What Does God need with a Starship?

If anyone gets the reference, congrats and you get a free cookie.  If not... may the Prophets guide you.

While religion can be used to unite people, it can also divide people.  While a religion preaches goodness and the betterment of humanity, it's followers may actually go forth and kill in the name of said religion.  With that said, I've been known to be quite colorful in my opinion of religion in general.  While I have my own faiths, they are basically a mixture.

The topic of God: I believe in a cosmic one, one that doesn't directly interfere with humanity.  I honestly don't believe that an ultimate being would REALLY want to meddle in the affairs of humans.  I mean, come on!  Also, I believe that giving God a gender REALLY limits It.  I just refer to It as genderless and leave it at that.

The topic of Jesus: Ugh... really?  It is possible that he was just simply a man who had a good idea of what it means to live a good life.  At the most, he could have been indeed the son of God -- albeit a bastard son of God -- but people just misinterpret that he was only for his followers, but for all... regardless of their beliefs.  Thus going back to possibly just being a good man.  Midpoint -- Jesus could have just been an Avatar of Vishnu... which would make sense since Vishnu is a "preservation" aspect of the one Godhead (or God, take your pick).  Does it really matter?  No.  Do people care?  Yes... for some reason.  Should people care?  Hell no.  

The topic of many gods: I've actually tried to explain this one to no avail, so let's try it again.  If the gods of other religions DO exist, then they exist on a plane of existence above angels, but below the ultimate being.  These gods interfere, make a ruckus, whatever.  I'm hoping for this one to be true because Thor is simply badass.  Defender of humanity?  Hell yes.

The topic of angels: If they exist, they have no genitalia.  If they exist, they act like the many gods, but not as powerful.  Okay?  Okay.

I basically call myself a Christian with an incredibly mean lean towards agnostic.  How incredible?  I only believe in the Saint Thomas Aquinas's Cosmological Argument on God.  That, and I can never believe in a God who gains pleasure in the pain of others, of which the bible seems to be dripping in.

Day 9 - Groundhog Day

A specific moment?  Ugh... you mean one I truly despised or truly enjoyed?  Meh, I'll give it a shot.

Moment Numero Uno:
In elementary school, by the fourth grade, I had a grand revelation as I was sitting in my seat at the lunch table bench as people threw shit at me (some was REALLY shit) and talked bad about me, I realized that I wasn't ever going to live a normal life and people weren't going to leave me alone and stop making fun of me.  Thus  hatched a diabolical plan in which was going to save my sanity and not go on a gunblazing crusade on my fellow classmates and teachers -- don't bathe anymore.  After two weeks, people REALLY wanted to stay away from me.  They stopped beating me up, they stopped throwing stuff at me, but they still insulted and made fun of me.  Of course, I didn't mind: I wasn't going to die!  I never bathed for four years (except during the summer) and I had survived elementary school because of it.  However, this allowed them to develop their psychological warfare, thus proved to be more harmful than the actual beatings and "surprise attacks" against me.  So it was a double-edged sword: be destroyed physically or psychologically.  I choose psychologically.  Once I started high school, I decided to opt for a "reset" on my life and try to make the best of it, thus bathing became an option again.

Moment Numero Dos:
Moment Number One leads us to moment number two: the acquisition of friendship.  Of course I didn't know what friendship was, thus I just avoided everyone in high school for the first week.  Basically I was in the front of the classroom and literally owned my own lunch table-bench.  If anyone remembered back then, the second day of lunch time, some girls invited me over to their table -- apparently seniors.  Remembering my past mistakes of trusting people, I declined their invitation politely... four times.  After lunch, one guy -- who I learned was Manny Pagan later one -- said to me "Oh my god... you turned THEM down?!"  Obviously I didn't get the joke, but I just said "yeah."  Apparently this is why he "respected" me from there on in.  There was a theory going around that I was bisexual for some reason... I believe that story had something to do with it.  Though after I told them that I wasn't, Manny just started calling me a "Pimp" for some reason... though why, I will never know.  But anyways, shortly after that event, one of my future friends -- Graceson -- came over and invited me over to his table of Viwat, Donte, Jose, and some others.  I refused, but he sat down and said, "I ain't leaving till you come with me.  We'll plot world domination right here instead."  Thus I joined his table and gained a friend for the first time in 14 years.  I believe that proves to be a grand moment.

Writer's Block: Do you want to know a secret?

How do you think personal relationships would change if people could read minds?

Yeeeeeah... some things need to be not known.  Friendships are basically founded upon filtering the "care meter" of all the annoying aspects of your friends.  With the ability to read people's minds... oh boy, a can of worms would be unleashed.

Day 7 - "Friends? What are Those?"

I believe my F-List Jen has it best: "I don't have a particular 'best friend'."

I have groups of friends that can qualify as my "best friend," but none that actually makes the pivotal BAM of uber-godly best friend.  For example: The Alpha Team.  This group is made up of Prince, Edward, Graceson, Anthony, and myself (Daniel is a former member since he fell off the face of the earth).  We were named this by our schools best(contested) teacher: Mr. Zanabria.  We've been friends since high school and I consider them all equally the "best" of friends.  Then there are select pockets of friends (ones that don't exist in a particular group, i.e. Mandy, Mason, Rachel, Sierra, the many different Calvins, and Adam).  Then there's the Loyola groups: The Morse Crew, the St. Louis Crew, the Santa Clara Crew, and the Off-Campus Crew.  The Morse Crew makes up Komal, Samantha, Priya and Vidya.  The St. Louis Crew makes up Michelle, Meera, and Heather.  The Santa Clara Crew makes up Maggie, Kate, and Faris.  The Off Campus crew (now) makes up Stephanie, Kerry, Jackie, Jessie, Sana, and Stacy.  If I have forgotten any others, I am sorry... it is early in the morning.  I'm still drinking Mah coffee damn it!

While it may not seem like it, I do enjoy hanging out with my friends.  It is better than sitting at home.  Working.  For hours on end.  Alone.  As usual.  o____o

I prefer to be bored with friends than at my computer. 

Coffee.  Need more.

Day 6 - Grand Old Time?

Since today just started (though I know today will be spent in my room because THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS), I'll focus on yesterday.

The day began with me hanging out with my mother.  Why?  Simply because today is the anniversary of my grand mother's -- her mother's -- death.  This is the time of year that she always feels bad -- as of 30 or so years ago -- thus takes it to heart pretty badly.  That, and she had to go get her MRI on her leg (long story).  Once I got back about 1ish, I texted Cal to let me know when games club starts so I can go with him -- little did I know it just started and Cal had bad reception.  Damnations.  But I didn't mind much because I got to chat with Kate and got invited to the horrendous movie called "The Last Exorcism."  However, the movie's at 8:30, and it was still like 1pm, so the waiting game.  I invited Kate and Maggie over for pizza... but Kate was still hungover from last night -- I dunno the details, but according to Maggie she was civil -- and Maggie was still in the shower.  Cut to 3pm, they came over, get picked up more pizza, went to their place, ate pizza, and awaited for hilarity.  They informed me that all but Maggie, a guy named Kevin, and myself are gonna be sober.  Apparently this was going to be a drinking game.  Don't you just LOVE being told that you were going to be basically the "designated driver?"  I didn't mind too much.  In the end, no was too crazy.

At 7ish, Maggie and I decided to buy Pokemon games for the GB advanced -- oh yeah, ancient technology for the win.  Now I have Pokemon Ruby version and she needs to get her own copy of the same generation so we can do battle.  Eventually.  Never played it, so hopefully it won't entirely be a waste of money.

Shortly after, we -- by chance -- invited Cal to join us to see the Exorcism movie.  So Cal joined our "designated driver" guild.  

Once at the theater, we met up with Kerry and her roommate -- who's name escapes me -- and thus began hilarity.  The movie wasn't scary -- just loud -- and they attempted to pull off a Shamalyan twist at the end, but did it horribly.  If you though Last Airbender was bad, oh boy...  I'm glad I saw it, just for the silliness of it all.  I mean, oh brother!

Afterwards, we headed back to Kate and Maggie's place with Faris, Cal, Kerry, and K & M's roommates.  And of course more drinking ensued...!  Was funny to watch, thankfully no one are bad drunks (in any form of the word, they were just... silly).  Cal and I headed back to our dorm at like... 2 in the morn. 

It wasn't a bad day, but being the same room as silly drunk people was a bit funny.  Though Cal informed me that our roommate Anthony is a "philosophical drunk."  Last night our roommate  went out drinking and came back drunk, apparently talking about Nietzsche.  I can only hope that when I am drunk, I am a philosophical drunk.  Thus far, Anthony has reached a higher bar of respect in the dorm just because of this information.
