System Failure

Well, let’s start with the morning and work our way through the day. I woke up this morning 6 hours before I wanted to. I didn’t feel the best, so I went back to bed. I woke up again 3 hours later, still not feeling the best. I did this one more time until it was the time I actually wanted to get out of bed. Needless to say I got out of bed with both a sore throat and a slight headache. Now for those people who know me, I rarely get sick. The interesting part about this is I don’t currently consider myself sick. Even in this state of slight headache, sore throat, and quite possibly a fever… I would go to school and be as normal as well.. me…

This was again excersised today when I decided to go to the Mall of America with my aunt from Nebraska. There I had a great time eating at players, playing one game of Pump It Up, and chatting with my aunt. I even ran into Alex and Breanna. We spoke for all of like 2 minutes then went our seperate ways again. There is an interesting story about his girlfriend and I. A story that I am sure is completely different from her point of view. One day, I am sure I will go off on some of the stupid things I have done, some of the smart things, and some of the “I’m not sure how to classify them” things. Needless to say our past has put some kind of barrier in what I believe is in my mind that prevents me from talking to her. This, I have concluded, is probably all for the better. Either way, long story, if I ever get the need to tell it, I will.

Ok so here is where things get interesting. So I was at the mall all day with them, feeling for the most part fine. I get home, and what happens? I start feeling bad again. This lead me to believe I was sicker than I thought and that I should probably just relax for awhile. So that’s what I did. I laid in front of the tv for like 4 hours and watched Boy Meets World, The Screen Savers, Lizzie, and Even Stevens. As I laid there, I felt progressively worse. I then decided that it was because I thought I was sick that I was sick. So I got up and played around for awhile, and now look at me.. I feel… fine… Yes, I know I am not thinking about how I feel… Either way, I am sure if you asked Alex about how I looked, I am sure I looked fine. I am sure that if anyone looked at me, I look fine… So maybe I am faking being sick, this is all just a mental ploy, and my mind woke up this morning thinking I should go forward with this sick ploy just because it would stop me from doing anything stupid with people tonight while my parents were out of town and while I was “sick”. Yes, my mind sometimes thinks like that.

Either way, I am more than likely not fully sick like a normal person, but just half sick. The other half is all mental and people know it. So needless to say, I am perfectly healthy, perfectly insane, and quite possibly perfectly contagious. So for all practical purposes, I will write journal entries and chat with friends tonight as opposed to going to the Mall of America again, racing for an hour, then coming home with some chick that I met while racing that needed a place to stay. Sure, I don’t really want any of this, except maybe the racing, but it makes me sound like a guy, a pig, and everything they represent.

Now for the somewhat more interesting part of this post. This is the part of the post where I start talking about how I feel about random things that happened to me today while hopefully entertaining you with my writings. Let’s start with TV. Those shows I were watching were not just any series of shows. The first one, Boy Meets World, I only caught the ending of. A mighty fine ending at that. I guess Cory was sick with Mono and Topanga had come to visit him to inform him they figured out who gave him mono. Cory then played a mean trick to see if Topanga liked him, and it worked without him giving up any information. I must say, very sly.

Well something distracted me from where I was going with this post, so I am going to stop it here and maybe write more later tonight.
