Wooot!!!!

Well, hello all! Once again, the spirit is out there, finally eh!? Past week, or I would say 2 weeks, have been really long, rough and I didn't like them. But hey, guess what? I'm freaking done with finals. They were hard, tedious, 4am in the morning still doing stuff, not a lot of sleep, but yes, finally I am done. And as of today I completed all my duty hours, I am done with that too. Now, FINALLY I can go take a haircut, lol. I've had so much to do I haven't been able to do even that, yeah I know. But anyways, I think in like 20min I will be getting a ride to the mall, and I'll get a haircut. Oh, and I need to shave too...
Tomorrow: going back home, and I still need to pack. And I don't have time, lol. So goodbye for now, but more to come soon! Hopefully.

If there is one thing I hate....

If there is one thing I hate, is being sick. I can't stand it. Right now, I have a cold, I'm congested, I think I have fever. Thank God my throath stopped bothering me, cause that would be just it, lol. I wanna go to bed (which I am shortly lol), I haven't been able to sleep in 2 days because I keep waking up coughing and sneezing, it really sucks. I just took some pills and cough medicine, so hopefully that will make me drowsy and I can have a good night sleep. Tomorrow I have class at 10:45am, good thing is I only have class until 1pm, then I have work until around 4, then I can go back into my room and rest some more. I think that's what I'll do. Right now, I need my bed. Right now, I wanna go home and forget about finals, work, and everything else. Although I'm not sure how much I will be able to rest at home, lol.

SICK Luis.

Eureka!

Howdie all. I know, I know.. haven't posted in a while, but I've been busy =). Well, the past week was interesting, or what can I say. To start off, the three days before Thanksgiving (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) were horrible. Like literally no1 at all was going to classes, they were all empty. Go figure, most of my classes have like 8 people in them.
So anyways, I was supposed to leave to the city Wednsday afternoon; a good friend of mine invited me over to his place since I didn't want to spend money going to Boston as I usually do for Thanskgiving (reason for that is I am saving money for my Disney trip, spring break 2007). Well, it turns out that my French teacher had the awesome idea of giving us a QUIZ, the wednesday before Thanksgiving. What a fag. Anyways, moving on!
I take my train in the afternoon, everything cool, everything good. Well, go to bed early, we get up at 5am so that we can make it on time to see the parade. But of course, nobody told me that the parade started at 9am... so yeah, there we were, standing on 58th and Broadway, 38 F, 15mph winds AND rain, just so that we get a front row spot. I've never been so cold in my life lol. So yea, from 6am to 12pm, standing there trying to warm myself by rubbing my hands, eff that I couldn't feel my hands, feet or anything else (if you know what I mean). But the parade was really cool, there was A LOT of stuff, but here are my favorites:

The SpongeBob Squarepants!


The Monopoly guy, really cool


Garfield


Pink Panther


The Animal Planet float



Well, all of these were really cool, but there were also a number of marching bands that were awesome, I've never heard them live and I was really amazed, because as they march forward you get to hear the same song but with different instruments played, so yeah it was really nice.




Well, other than that I just wanted to make a "stand out" for this other Blog I found that was really nice and good to read:

Sin Claudicar


So long, maybe I'm forgetting something just post it on comments =)

Saw3. So like the other day I went to see this movie. If you have seen the first two, I would imagine you to be a little bit dissapointed with this one, or at least for me it was - it was not what I expected it to be. Let me explain myself: the first two movies deal with a lot of psycological trama, its a lot of shit that messes up with your mind, you don't know what to expect and in the end it turns out to be something totally different. So like on this one, it is not psycological at all. Pretty much there is nothing to "worry" about, its all about torturing, massacre. But.. well, it's so awesome. Some of the mechanics are really really really nice and creative.
Anyways, it's a really really bloody movie and not everyone can watch it without having bad dreams after, lol. Me, I don't really care - I can pretty much eat and watch ER at the same time, it doesn't bother me at all. God, when I think about myself, I whish the world would be more like me, not to brag... but everyone could use a little more open minded. I am thinking about something to write about which is gonna be interesting and clarifying for some people, about my different jobs. But it's still developing!

Here is something I found that I wrote about myself:

About me:
I am very simple. I like to be honest and direct to the point. I am someone that understands that not all weekends are for partying, and that you can also have fun watching a movie or a TV show. A huge sense of humor, sometimes too dirty lol. I spend most of my time at my computer doing what I call 'not so productive' stuff. I am really into snowboarding and volleyball, even though I can't do it all the time. I like what I do, and I consider myself to be good at anything I try. I am very picky with food, I don't eat vegetables. I listen to music, all type of music. I am very very very open minded, as long as there is communication it works. I am special (not in a retarded way!) because my way around people varies a lot. It is hard to explain, I most of the time, care more for what the other person feels more than my own feelings. I try to make others happy before thinking of myself sometimes. I love to have fun, and by fun I mean doing different things. Fun can be going to the mountain and down the lift or staying home for a movie. I absolutely LOVE animals, all of them. Back home I have 3 birds, a cat and a rottweiler. I used to have 2 foxterries as well but they passed away. I like to joke around a lot, specially if the other person is open with me. I am very polite though. I absolutely hate pictures, I think I never look like myself in any of them. Who the hell is reading this at this point anyways....

For fun: I like playing volleyball. I also love to snowboard. I play computer games, sometimes more than I should. I do a lot of different things for fun depending on my mood. I love being on the snow, walking, etc

My job: Webmaster assistant. I do regular updates for internet pages and build scripts. I also 'teach' programming courses and I'm also an advisor for students. MORE TO COME ABOUT THIS

My ethnicity: I'm a mix of Caribbean, French and American, although my caribbean image prevails and I don't look neither American or French, lol! (har!). My grandfather was Haitian from French families (long ago), and my grandmother was American but live in DR. I'm a 'little latino' anyways.

My education: Uhmm.. ok, I go to college, currently a Junior double majoring in Management and Computer Science with a concentration in French.

Favorite hot spots: Applebees =) I am very picky with food. I hate vegetables, even though I could eat salad. As for travel destinations, I am more of a cold weather person. I love to cuddle when its cold. Would prefer to be at the mountain snowing before the beach.

Favorite things to do: I love chicken parmessana (is that how you freakin spell it?). I like to cook, but easy stuff! I like colors red, black and blue even though yellow looks good on me. I get sleepy when I go shopping, I dont know why. Harry Potter, The OC, CSI Las Vegas are my favorite whereabouts.

Last read: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is the lats book I read. I also like to read Red Herring magazines (its a magazine with a mix of business and technology). I'm not a big reader actually.

Who I'd like to meet: J.K. Rowling


So long, until the next one...

I'm not ready to make nice.

Forgive, sounds good. Forget, I'm not sure I could. They say time heals everything,
But I'm still waiting. I'm through, with doubt, there's nothing left for me to figure out, I've paid a price, and i'll keep paying...
I'm not ready to make nice, I'm not ready to back down, I'm still mad as hell and I don't have time to go round and round and round, it's too late to make it right, I probably wouldn't if I could, cause I'm mad as hell can't bring myself to do what it is you think I should...
I know you said, why can't you just get over it. It turned my whole world around and i kind of like it. I made by bed, and I sleep like a baby, with no regrets and I don't mind saying, it's a sad sad story that a mother will teach her daughter that she ought to hate a perfect stranger, and how in the world can the words that I said, send somebody so over the edge that they'd write me a letter saying that I better shut up and sing or my life will be over....
I'm not ready to make nice, I'm not ready to back down, I'm still mad as hell and I don't have time to go round and round and round, it's too late to make it right, I probably wouldn't if I could, cause I'm mad as hell can't bring myself to do what it is you think I should...

Good times.

I remember a point in my life, close to the beginning of college, when I started thinking about this: time is passing by so fast. It's incredible, I wish I could make it stop, make the clock go slower. I still remember the first day of college, making friends, trying to fit in, figuring out what the hell I wanted to do, living the life that I always wanted: far from home.
I wanted to talk about a lot of stuff, yet I keep forgetting, lol. One of the things I thought about doing (of course, my best thoughts come when I am in.... the train, lol): I want to go to England, without telling anyone. Dissappear for some time, not letting anyone know where I am or why I am doing it. Not worrying about absolutely anything. Do you really think anyone would notice?

On another note, I started reading this blog the other day, I've becomed an addict to finding good blogs, since the two blogs I read the most, Coyotez and Bigotez, they are busy and are not posting as much as they used to. I remember last year I would rush in my room, turn my computer on and I see if any new posts were made, it was like a disease. So anyways, I found this blog:

Girl From Santiago.

Awesome blog, I can't wait to read more. Too bad it's in spanish, lol. Props to you though, nice work you got there =). You better put me in your links now, muahahahahahahha.

I am sick

I am sick of being the one that does it all, I am sick of doing someone elses job so that I am not affected, I am sick of people not doing their job, I am sick of people not following guidelines, I am sick of being stressed, I am sick of running from place to place, I am sick of having to keep up with so many things, I am sick of being the one called for the big problems, I am sick of giving smiles just because I have to, I am sick of people thinking I am there to babysit them, I am sick of people taking advantage of me, I am sick of my friends thinking I am a resource to them, I am sick of people thinking because I am good at something I would do it for them, I am sick of people using me for their own purpose, I am sick of people being stupid, I am sick of people drinking in the hallway like they don't care what happens, I am sick of people that think that ripping down stuff is funny, I am sick of having to deal with so much shit, I am sick of watching the american government ignore everything, I am sick of people trying to help others when they can't even help themselves, I am sick of not being informed, I am sick of having to keep up with other people's job, I am sick of reminding people what they have to do, I am sick of being the one that takes care of stuff without wanting to or having a choice, I am sick of being leaded by someone who doesn't know what he is doing, I am sick of people that are not there for others, I am sick of people that view life so differently, I am sick of people that think that if you dont believe in something you will go to hell, I am sick of people that think crying is for pussies, I am sick of so many different things.

Yet another awesome weekend.

Well, let me start by saying that blogger sucks.

Last week in one of my computer lab classes, I found an ipod on the floor. I was like oh wow! So I picked it up and took it with me. Now, I'm only keeping it for a month and if I hear of anyone that lost an iPod I will go and find out if the one I found is theirs. However, after one month I think it is safe enough to claim that the iPod is mine. What's even a little more awesome is since I don't use stuff like that too much (since pretty much I'm next to my computer most of the time) I will give the iPod to my brother as a Christmas present. AHA! Smart me, don't have to spend money for Christmas presents anymore. Well, ok maybe $5 and buy chocolates. I hate Christmas anyways. Waste of time. I don't like holidays, not even my own birthday, enough said.

Before I forget, why is it that sometimes you hear something and you totally know they can't be true because... well let me explain. Once there was this bus crash in the mountain, everyone died cause the bus fell trough a cliff and no1 survived. My aunt, was saying how the passengers in the bus were telling him that he was going too fast. Now, think about it. If everyone in the bus crash died, how the heck did you hear that the passsengers in the bus crash were saying to the driver to slow down?
Scenario number 2. There is a story about this town that this monster came and killed everybody. No1 has ever seen the monster and everywhere this monster goes there are no survivors. So how the fuck do they know about this monster? Ok Luis.. calm down.

Ok, so this weekend I went to the city again. Picked up money that my mom sent me. Went to times square, hanged around a little, went into a couple stores (of course, I didn't buy absolutely anything). Then went to my special one! HUGE hug and kiss, up the apartment, and oooooh what a freakin great day. I've never felt like that, seriously. It wasn't just love and sex, it was way more than that. Wow, what a connection. Ok, after scene 1, a small nap, out to dinner (pizza, lol) and back to the apartment. Scene 2, but nothing major happened, lol. Another small nap but TV for me. Scene 3, lol. And it was mutual, ahhahaahahahah. 10 minutes before I had to go.

Funny thing is that when I was on the train back home, I was listening to the iPod (duh!) and John Mayer's song 'stop this train' comes up. Anyways, I thought it was funny.

As always, my marketing project meeting: no1 showed up. It's like the 3rd time it happens? As always, I will end up doing the damn thing again. Those fuckers.

THIS ALBUM ROCKS!!!!!

Joe Satriani - Super Colossal




Coheed's verse of the day
Slowly the pen touches paper in the guidance of the words that you write.
Memories roll in; of the things you once did
and who you had shared them with is somebody thinking of you.
Did I bother telling you this, with the words that cross teeth and jump lips?
A poor choice of words, in wanting to tell you anything.
But words don't come with ease. They're forever my hurt.
Would it really matter, if you were to count the days left with your hands?
Your focus secure and the loves you left; well
smiles staged in photographs here until...






Mood: Eager to go play volleyball.

I still love my blog

Wow, what a week! It's been so busy. When you think about it, the semester is halfway done... I can still remember when I came for the awesome RA training 2 weeks, wow. Anyways, midterms suck, enough said about the topic. This weekened promises a lot, let's wait and see. Next weekend I'm going to go see my favorite comic: Lisa Lampanelli, live at Caroline's @ Broadway. It's gonna be mad fun! Anyways, I love this song:


Artist/Band: McGraw Tim
Lyrics for Song: Grown Men Don't Cry
Lyrics for Album: Set This Circus Down



I pulled into the shopping center
And saw a little boy wrapped around the legs of his mother
Like ice cream melting they embraced
Years of bad decisions runnin' down her face
All mornin' I'd been thinkin' my life's so hard
And they wore everything they own, livin' in a car
I wanted to tell 'em it would be ok
But I got just got in my suburban and I drove away

But I don't know why they say grown men don't cry
I don't know why they say grown men don't cry

Keep having this dream about my old man
I'm 10 years old, and he's holding my hand
We're talkin' on the front porch watchin' the sun go down
But it was just a dream he was a slave to his job and he couldn't be around
So many things I wanna say to him
But I just placed a rose on his grave, and I talk to the wind

But I don't know why they say grown men don't cry
I don't know why they say grown men don't cry, don't cry

I'm sittin' here with my kids and my wife
And everything that I hold dear in my life
We say grace and thank the Lord
Got so much to be thankful for
Then it's up the stairs and off to bed and my little girl says
"I haven't had my story yet."

And everything weighin' on my mind disappears just like that
When she lifts her head off her pillow and says,
"I Love You Dad"

I don't know why they say grown men don't cry
I don't know why they say grown men don't cry
And I don't know why they say grown men don't cry
I don't know why they say grown men don't cry, don't cry

What the hell, it's Monday, so fast?

The weekend was excellent. I couldn't have asked for a better one. It felt really good, which is funny because I've never really slept on the same bed with someone else but I had no problem doing it (sleeping that is).
Saturday was really really really nice, I went and picked up the credit card my mom sent me and then after that I headed over all the way from the west side to the east side of Manhattan. No, I didn't walk, I took a cab cause I was carrying the guitar, my bag and my coat. I hate sweating on a cold weather, it really sucks. Well, got there perfectly, went and bought lunch, cooked the sandwhiches and started watching RENT. Too bad someone fell asleep because its a good movie... lol. We spent the afternoon just hanging around doing our stuff and watching TV. Then we cooked hamburguers with mozzarella cheese in the middle, boy that was GOOOOOD. But the dessert was even better!!!!!
Someone, I don't remember how, we fell asleep with the TV off. I woke up. I was hugging someone. When did I do that, hahahahahaha. Funny feeling, but it felt good. Ok, so I go to sleep again, I wake up someone is hugging me. When did that happen? hahahahaha. It felt good.
We got up, showered (separately of course) and headed to church. I don't usually go to church, in fact I can't remember the last time I went that it was not related to someone dying. It didn't feel weird, it didn't feel like I didn't belong. In fact, I was probably one of the youngest there. Now, I've always disliked church because it is boring and because every time I go I don't know what to say, you know, what you are supposed to respond, etc etc. I didn't feel like it this time in church, and I payed attention to everything and even though not everything I felt it was interesting, it was nice. The music was amazing as well.
After church we bought pizza and brought it home, ate and took a nap almost until I had to take my train back.
So, at night my mom IM's me and we chat, I tell her that I went to a methodist church with a friend and that it went great, and all she replies is 'ok'. I was a little dissapointed by that reply to be honest, I thought she would question me about it, try to find out more but it didn't happen. It doesn't bother me right now, but at the moment it did.
Anyways, this morning my dad called at 8am to ask me about some charges in the credit card, what a wake up call - it was nice talking to you dad! 9am my boss called too, so yeah by 10am (the time which I usually wake up) I was already really woken up!!

There are things in life that only God knows and only He can measure. I hope that one day they create a machine that lets someone else know how I feel right now.

Friday? FRIDAY? REALLY?!

Well, it was supposed to be a fast week. Considering that Monday we didn't have class, it was "supposed" to go fast. I felt like it didn't. I think that one of the reasons was because Tuesday we had Monday classes, so it was kinda weird.
Anyways, Thursday I worked a lot. I was in the office from like 1 until 5, something I don't usually do. I usually work in 1-2 projects but this time I had like 6-7 to work on. Part of the reason is that my boss was in a weird training thing all tuesday and wednesday, so I guess the work of the weekend, and the start of the week got to me all in one day. I swear I mustve had like 20emails from him asking me to change stuff here and there, it was a lot to do. The good thing about that is that it was a lot of money. I handed in my timesheets on Thursday. In 2 weeks I made around $260, my plan for the next 2 weeks is also near 300 so I can save money and also pay my trip to Disney.
This week it has been weird. For some reason I haven't been able to sleep like I normally do. There are two theories behind this, but the only person that really cares already knows.
Tomorrow an awesome weekend starts, I am really looking forward to it. I am preparing an awesome surprise, and I am also really happy that I will have you between my arms again. Isn't that exciting? I THOUGHT SO!
I'm on duty tonight, so I have to head out.

A reason to wake up

This morning when I woke up, the only thing in my mind was this:

We'll do it all
Everything
On our own

We don't need
Anything
Or anyone

If I lay here..
If I just lay here...
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?


And you know that is what I want to be doing right now. Just laying there by your side. Making each other happy. You're so freakin cute!!!

Today

You know when you ask yourself if you are just being too much? Making a big deal about something so simple? I am asking myself; I do not want to repeat myself. IT FEELS DIFFERENT, it really does.
I have someone's eyes and smile stuck in my head and can't get it out. I'm so scared of getting lonely. I feel like my life is really turning the way it should've long ago.
Tomorrow is going to be boring. I can't stop counting the days left in my head. I have no class in the afternoon, only one class from 12 to 12:50. Planning on getting a haircut, go buy some stuff I'm missing too.
I am also very very happy for a friend. She found what she was looking for. I can see it in her smile, her eyes, her happiness is all over her. I am really glad that she found what she was looking for. A change. Something different. I am really happy for her.
Today was a regular day.

Mood: Haaaaaaappppppyyyyyyyy.

I'm feeling it

What a great set of two days. I'm glad that someone has helped me bring out the happiness that I knew was in me but that I would've never been able to find by myself. There are no words to describe what a feeling. I've been happy, sad, I've cried, I've laughed, I've felt secure, I've felt being taken care of, I've been hugged, I've been told how beautiful I am in the inside, all in one day. I can't believe how happy I am, what a chemistry. Just having someone there to wipe my tears off.. I can't explain what a feeling. A crying shoulder, someone to listen, someone to hug - I have it all in you. I whish I could really express my level of appreciation, passion. I don't think anyone will ever understand. What a feeling, oooh to be happy! When it feels like it should, and you're around, and you feel safe inside, and you don't miss a thing until you cry... My cheeks hurt from laughing, smiling. No one has ever been able to do that before, and I'm glad I have someone to do it now. Song of the day:

John Mayer - Vultures
Some of us, We're hardly ever here
The rest of us, we're born to disappear
How do I stop myself from
Being just a number
How will I hold my head
To keep from going under

Down to the wire
I wanted water but
But I'll walk through the fire
If this is what it takes
To take me even higher
Then I'll come through
Like I do
When the world keeps
Testing me, testing me,testing me

How did they find me here
What do they want from me
All of these vultures hiding
Right outside my door
I hear them whisperin
They're tryin to ride it out
Cause they've never gone this long
Without a kill before

Down to the wire
I wanted water but
I'll walk through the fire
If this is what it takes
To take me even higher
Then I'll come through
Like I do
When the world keeps
Testing me, testing me, testing me

Wheels up
I got to leave this evening
Can't seem to shake these vultures
Off of my trail
Power is made, by power being taken
So I keep on running
To protect my situation

Down to the wire
I wanted water but
I'll walk through the fire
If this is what it takes
To take me even higher
Then I'll come through
Like I do
When the world keeps
Testing me, testing me

Oooooooooooo
Oooooooooooo
Oooooooooooo
Oooooooooooo
Whatcha gonna do about it
Whatcha gonna do about it

Day Two

It's that time again, where you want to write about so many things but you feel like there is not enough time. I was reading something, and I found this.

"All things happen for a reason, we may not understand and may never understand and we may not be meant to ever understand"

You're right... I know it.

The new Luis

Yesterday I decided to rebuild my blog. I noticed I haven't written on it for a very long time. Not only that, but it was all mostly pictures.
With this blog I have a new mission; a whole new purpose. I want to write about anything that comes into my mind: what I did during the week, how I feel, what I thought about something, bitch about something or just to simply get something out of my head. In a sense it will be a blog to myself. I know it is going to be a challenge; I want to make this serious, but with my sense of humor... well, all I have to say is that I know it is going to be hard.
I want to start with a good positive post. A couple days I decided I should really do what my heart told me to do. I met someone extraordinary online. Someone that I feel I could talk about anything, someone like me who is open minded. I've only known that person for a day or two and yet it is so exciting that just looking at the rain makes me think about that person, makes me smile and laugh to myself. A feeling I haven't felt in a long time. Makes me think about my old girlfriend, the awesome times we had, but yet it feels different. Someone that I know will be there for me even without me knowing that person fully. I feel like it is going to be an awesome journey, a step further, a time to explore. Most importantly, someone that I do not have to do anything other than being myself to be comfortable with. No longer I need to impersonate myself to attract others, I am done with that. Someone that really appreciates me and boosts my moral up. Thank you, for giving me that feeling once again.
I feel like I am full of happiness, not only about what has happened, but what can happen in the future. A friendship, a lover, a best friend, a crying shoulder: imagine all those together. Imagine the possibilities. Someone that doesn't try to adjust you to fit their criteria, someone that accepts you by the simple fact of who you are. I could go on and on.
They say that life is full of up's and downs. Past two weeks it's been like that. A lot of work, a weekend to think over, a day to just lay on my bed looking at the beautiful day outside, hearing to the music I love to hear. Think about recent events, what can I do about them... Lately I've noticed that it is best to speak from the heart, and be as honest as you can. It is all about communication.
I am looking forward to this weekend, it should be fun, a sense of exploring, and most importantly: the city! Something different. I am trying to head to the city, at least 2-3 times in a month. It is so sad that I've been living here for 2 years and have only been to 1 broadway show, 1 concert and I've never been to chinatown or any of those other cool places. I know my way around Times Square though!!
Don't ever let what others think about you bring you down. Always keep your head high, there is always someone out there that appreciates you for who YOU are - you just have to have the courage and patience to find that person. I am glad that I can think to myself that I've found this person, even if its just as a friend or companionship. I am very glad.
