Time:12:50 am
For the first time in quite a while, everyone else is getting sick around me and it hasent affected me. Its kinda weird, especially since I havent been taking any vitamins or being extra careful to not get sick this time. I have been trying to focus more on Betsy, and maybe that has an impact on it. Who knows.
I guess Im getting ahead of myself. In case you forgot, Betsy is the lady I have been watching over that was a veteran of the Navy as a Nurse during Pearl Harbor, worked in the Burn Unit, taken care of children after the war that had horrible disfiguring burns and had a very fulfilling life.
I figured that her thread has been getting close to the end, so when Christmas came around and New Years, I wasent suprised when she lapsed into a final stroke/coma. The prognosis is that the doctors dont see her lasting past Wednesday; Saturday at the latest.
I have been writing about her for quite a while now, as well as discussed whats been going on in her whole medical situation, and yet I still feel I have yet to touch on what kind of person she was or how she impacted me. I dont know if Ill be ever able to do so. I guess its just all going to eventually be something I can release once shes gone. I have no clue.
Not much else has been going on, Ray just got over getting sick, Leslee from what Im told is the worse she has been in 20 years, Heidi lost her voice, and Erik also was starting to have sniffles when I saw him on Friday at the office.
Im hoping Ill be able to bypass this season of sicknesses, but Im pretty sure Im not going to. Im just not that lucky :)).

Subject:Best Buy; Ill Miss ya.
Time:10:42 am
Current Mood:exhaustedexhausted
Technically this happened last month, but Im only taking the time to post this today because...well, I feel like it.

Best Buy late last month, without contacting me, ended my credit on my card. I found out after attempting to buy a gift card for my boss on behalf of the office. I was lucky to have my bank card to fulfill my transaction, but that would have been nice to been able to put off the balance till I got everyone's contribution.

After calling Best Buy, its been determined that because I had a late payment in Nov of 05' with Best Buy and a couple late payments with my truck, Best Buy has decided that I'm a credit risk. Nevermind that I have spent (approx.) easily $2k+ per year there, Nevermind that I only had ONE late payment with them (around 2 days late at that), Nevermind that I usually go there and have been a pretty loyal customer, even when I could easily spend money online or with their rivals. I'm just a risk.

I had purchased something that I have to return in mid January to pick up, but after that, thats the last time I'll walk into a Best Buy. I know I wont have much of an impact on their profits, but I wonder if this policy is standard and if so, how many others have decided never to walk into a Best Buy again?

Please don't see this blog as a Spartacus attempting to rise his Gladiators to throw off the shackles and begin a revolution, I don't expect anyone to run out the door on Best Buy just because they don't feel like treating me like a customer worth keeping. How do you tell your friends not to go into their version of Toys R Us because "they were mean to me!"? It's rediculous. I only wanted to post my frustration at their policies, nothing more....(had to put a disclaimer in here somewhere heh).

*As if*

things have been pretty normal as of late, other then hearing from Alex that his girlfriend and him broke up. He seems pretty torn up about it, and thats quite a shame. The last thing I want is to see him unhappy, but hes young and I do feel that pang of pain from past relationships when they end. Im sure he will do fine, the kids' strong but it still hurts to see him going through it.

Rick recently decided we are going to get matching tattoos with our crest, but the problem is that in order to manage it, the tattoo must be at least around 9x6, which seriously isnt realistic. As proud as I am of the crest, I cant imagine a tattoo on my body that large. Instead, we are looking at other alternatives, maybe using the elements from our crest in order to keep some semblance of the original items in it.

Cheryl recently sent me pictures of Adrian, the house she lives in, and a pic of her. Its hard to imagine ever really being in love with her now, her and I live in such different worlds and have such different ideas of how to treat people and what its like to have emotions about people. I mean, come on, how many people do you know that you used to date ask you if you're fucking your current girlfriend yet? My previous exes are usually pretty respectful and considerate, and she has been so invasive. I know she wants to get into my business so she could hope for some way of possibly finding an "in" again, even though I already put up the sign that clearly says, "no Vacancy".

Recently with others' experiences I began to realize how lucky I am now that my gaming friends have decided to ostracize me. Their viewpoints on life and mine dont co-mingle that well. I know I didn't do what they thought was important to them, and judged me based on my hardships, and Im okay with that. Ive found people in my life now, like Robert and the group I used to party with, that really showed that they won't judge you for your actions no matter what. That kind of friend is really the best you can really ever ask for.

What I find ironic is that one of people from that whole group is all thats left of my friends, whom I tried to burn a bridge with. Hell I tried to nuke that bridge. With God's help, I realized I didnt have to do that, I just needed to realize how to forgive/apologize/ and how to learn how to deal with each other. Patience, Forgiveness, and Understanding wins out in the end.

Sometimes I get aggressive, beligerent, even nasty. Sometimes the fire burns inside and it finally has to rush out. I guess I brought something back from Iraq I never meant to.

Not that anyone really reads my journal, and thats actually okay. I just am going to use it again I guess. Dunno why. I kinda got runned off of it by friends/relations, and then life took over and I got busy.

I dont know if Im going to make this a every other day thing like before. Im going to just see where it takes me and just do it.

*shrugs* How could it hurt?

Subject:reading about Brian "Head" Welch
Time:10:40 am
Current Mood:restlessrestless
My impression of music has been kinda diverse in some ways. In some bands, I see them expressing their feelings, and in others, I feel they are just enjoying music for music's sake. Some of the others, its just to get rich. No matter, I just enjoyed it as my mood took me. Its never been real impacting on my life other then to remember people or events as they occured when the music may be on. Its never had an impact on my religion such as this has on someone:

www.headtochrist.com

For those of you that are unsure who Brian is (I dont blame you, I only knew him as Head so I was at first confused), he was a guitarist in Korn till recently, when he converted to christianity.

When I first heard the news that he left, I remember vividly telling OCNative in her kitchen about it, and the two of us nodding in agreement that it was "good for him" but I didnt really know what the extent of the history and story was.

Its amazing the change that was made in his life, To go from alchohol and drugs and this crazy living to wanting that clean change so desperately. His courage to bypass what people think and disregard the rhetoric, to be clean and honest, to be intent on being Saved for himself and his family, is really amazing and inspirational.

I never really experienced the life of having to discover faith in latter years, my family really helped me walk with God for quite a while. My faith in God was shaky many times (specifically in war), and recently it took a big hit (I confused abandonement in love and religion's involvement), but I never had a point where I was without it and discovered it. Its very interesting to see how dramatic it can change your life for the better, generally speaking.

We all have struggles, and we make wrong choices. We are fallible. Its great to see we can have a chance to do whats right for us if we choose it.

Ive been sick since last friday, and it hasent really let up. its a chest cold, and Im hoping it will be completely gone by the time OCNative's birthday approaches (quickly on the 9th, btw) so I can take her out for something nice and simple.

Then, on the 20th, Ill be 35. Its odd how quickly and rapidly things have been over this last year. I dont rightly understand what kind of hurry God was in to get it over with as quickly as it has. *shrugs* With financial stresses as of late, Im actually happy its ending, hoping that with the new year, will come good luck in that vein.

Whatever. Im sick, leave me alone :)
