Won't Stop

The new OneRepublic album "dreaming out loud" is amazing. I've been waiting for it to come out for almost 4 years, as I've enjoyed their music on purevolume and myspace for a lonnnnng time. Their album finally came out - granted I already had about half of it from my downloads (that they offered for free on purevolume) from purevolume that are now on the album. All the same, two of my four favorite songs are new to me. "Say (All I Need)" and "Won't Stop" are awesome songs.

Listen to it.

On another note, my intramural softball team (made up of almost all my friends from work here in Orlando) won the championship on Wednesday night after going 1-4 in the regular season...we won 3 straight playoff games against some overly serious really good softball was a blast!!! I will post a picture soon when I get it on my computer so you can share in the glory. PS - your boy had 2 2-run home runs and 2 double play turns in the game at was a big night.

I just ate a Christmas cookie and it was good. But its still like 75 degrees here. Weird.

I finally replaced my iPod that broke about a year and a half ago, but my computer is running really slow so I think I'm going to completely reformat it and put the stuff on it that I need and then install my iPod on it.

Oh life...PS who knew that it costs over $1000 to replace the tires on my car? SO not cool!!! Not sure how I'm going to get around that one...either way I know I'm not going to be a happy camper in a few months when I need new tires.

Missin' the days...

I miss the days where I had my closest friends available at a moment's notice...I know you may be thinking that it sounds ludicrous...but so many people take for granted the fact that they can return home and call up a close friend and just be able to be near them whenever they want.

My best friend lives in Iowa...we all know that my career doesn't seem to take me to Iowa if I stick with what I'm doing I would go nuts without the city. It suits him fairly well though, because I think he was made for open spaces and such, and I think at least for now he enjoys it.

My college roommates, who I love and know me very well, live in Chicago...some of whom still live together. I am not in Chicago anymore (where I went to school)...I am the one that moved away, and most of the others stayed relatively close. They visited this weekend and reminded me how much I can enjoy just the sheer presence of those whom you love. I miss that presence.

I now live in Orlando, a city where I do have several friends, but a city where I haven't found the types of people which make me want to be a better person and fill me with the relaxing satisfaction that comes only from being near those select few who you connect with on a deeper, sometimes unspoken, level.

There is something to be said for that. A lot, in fact. I just don't know how to say really make it mean what it does.

All I know is there are a few guys in my life that make me believe in true friendship...I only wish I could be near them to express it more.

Autumn is upon us, and I'm trying to decide what to do for Thanksgiving. The family wants me to come home, the girlfriend/her family want me to stay here, and I don't know what I want.

I'm tired.
