Probably Going to Be Long

This post has the potential be long. Very very long. However, it probably wonÂ’t beÂ… So here goes.
To start with, I should be studying as we speak together in this one way online forum. I should be looking at Computer Science trying to grasp the one thing all year that hasnÂ’t quite made perfect sense. I would hate to fail the last test after doing so well all year. I would like to get a perfect on it and at least give myself a chance at getting an A in the class. It saddens me that IÂ’m no longer really a 4.0. IÂ’m no longer the genius I once was. ThatÂ’s ok though. I do like who I am, and the things I donÂ’t like, IÂ’m changing.
Amber and I are continuing to have problems. This probably isnÂ’t the place to share it, but it probably isnÂ’t something worth hiding. IÂ’m not positive the problems are between us either. IÂ’m just no longer sure I want to or am able to handle the magnitude of the problems coming from her family. I donÂ’t have any desire to break up with her, but Amy said something last night that made sense. She said that if itÂ’s hurting you and itÂ’s hurting the relationship, and Amber canÂ’t fix itÂ… Then I need to get out. That makes sense. IÂ’m not though, and I wonÂ’t, because I believe Amber can fix it. She has to. And she seems to be making and effort to do so. And IÂ’m here to help her to my best ability, and thatÂ’s what matters more than anything. IÂ’m here to help.
So that said, that sounds kind of down. But itÂ’s how IÂ’m going to roll into my next topic. IÂ’ve been angry more than usual lately. People have been doing things to me that inadvertently put me down or cause trouble for me. Not to mention the sheer frustration created by the previous topic. I donÂ’t like being angry, and it generally takes a lot to get me there. So maybe itÂ’s time to step back and fight the source. Why am I not being as tolerate as normal? Good question. ItÂ’s something for Derek, Sim, and I to talk about tomorrow.
That brings me to another side issue. With Amber being all concerned that IÂ’m going to leave her, the fact that Nikki has been hurting as well lately has caused me to be divided. And seeing as Amber is my girlfriend, most of my attention has gone there. The worst part is the more I help Nikki, the more Amber has an issue with it. I canÂ’t say I donÂ’t understand that, but at the same time, itÂ’s uncalled for. IÂ’m not leaving Amber for NikkiÂ…
So, that brings me to helping Nikki. I know I havenÂ’t been around much for her. The combination of school, work, distance, and life in general has not made it as possible as it used to be. So I read her site and try to get a grasp of things. This talk about leaving or coming home or being as confused or more confused than everyone else concerns me but is understandable. We all seem to be falling apart lately, and no one can find the source. But as for helping Nikki, I donÂ’t know what to do. ItÂ’s as if she wants us to show her we care. She wants us to show her that we want her to stay. And because she isnÂ’t getting the reaction she is expecting to the statement about the return to UCLA, sheÂ’s a little worried. Well Nik, here is my reaction. We would love it if you stayed. YouÂ’re a great friend. And itÂ’s awesome being able to do stuff with ya even if itÂ’s just trivial pursuit or wasting you at Mario Kart. However, IÂ’m going to tell you to go to UCLA. I always have. ItÂ’s a great school and it has the potential to send you places youÂ’ve never been. However, do it only if you want to. If you want to stay here, close to friends, close to family, and go to Concordia here, thatÂ’s cool too. Just know we want whatÂ’s best for you, not whatÂ’s best for us. ThatÂ’s why no one is telling you to come back from St. Cloud, and why no one is telling you that you need to stay. ItÂ’s a matter of whatÂ’s best for you, and you are the only one that happens to know what that is. College will help determine who you become, what you want to become determines where you go. Remember that, and you could go far.
That brings me to my next statement. Where am I going? I have 8 different paths, non of which are near complete. When I was younger, I wanted to go to MITÂ… I gave up that dream for ease of life. I want to start JR Corps, but that too seems to go by the wayside. I want to get AÂ’s in school, but I donÂ’t study. I never follow through on the means to get what I wantÂ… I just expect what I want to come to meÂ… It always has in time, it always has. If you wait and continue trying, sooner or later your efforts will be rewarded. ItÂ’s just the timing on those efforts that sometimes fails. I donÂ’t know. My path is not set in stone. I can change my life in a moments notice. Is where IÂ’m going where I want to be?
I know one thing is not going where I want it to be. My bank account. The combination of eating out and not working does not do good things to it over time. ItÂ’s not to itÂ’s all time low yet, but if I donÂ’t make some money over Christmas break, it will either by empty by June, or close to it. This happened once before if I rememberÂ… Sometime around May of last year.. The thing that saved me was graduation money. Strange how that works. Will birthday money save me this time? IÂ’m not as low as that time, but itÂ’s getting there.. I can feel it.
So where does this post leave me? Same place I was yesterday, same place I will be tomorrow. For things to change, it would take people who wish to change them, and overall, IÂ’m happy. The things that change are changing. The amount of money IÂ’ve spent in the last two weeks is lower than the 2 weeks before that. My concerns with others are being dealt with via communication. So change will happen. ItÂ’s just a matter of whoÂ’s going to change what.
My mom is going to to the doctor today, hopefully the plan to get her to and from there goes alright. We all have busy lives, so when one of us leaves, it get’s difficult to maintain the others. That’s family.
So that’s my post. Anyone ever notice that I start a lot of my paragraphs with “so”? I do.
