What a crazy summer... I had kristin here all summer... Awesome. I went to Lollapalooza... Awesome. Saw my favorite band Death Cab For Cutie... Awesome. Saw Ross... Still hot. Ross has a beard... Jealousy. Kristin left... Not so awesome. I'm beyond broke right now... Not so awesome. I'll be home labor day weekend (hopefully)... Awesome. Current Mood: tired

So I got off early today which freaking rocks. It's the first time in what seems like forever. I work nights so my schedule is fucked. I'm struggling to find the right house or even a realtor to sit down and talk with me(bitches). My deadline for finding a house before Kristin gets here for the summer is fast approaching. I can't wait for Lollapalooza this summer. Everybody should go so I can see everyone with my four short days of leave. I've got watch Saturday from 0000-0400 which really sucks donkey dick. I'm forgot I had grease on my hands and now my keyboard is all dirty. Bummer. My chit for my housing allowance went through so that's an extra $876 a month. I can't wait to get out of the Navy. My time to reenlist is fast approaching at which point I tell them to shove their butt-loads of cash for extra years straight up their bum-bums. Maybe I'll kick back and collect a few unemployment checks when I'm done. Who knows? Trying to decide what to tonight. I haven't been off this early in a while so I forget what there is to do. Current Mood: chipper

|I HATE AIRPLANES!
I finally have a computer in my room. So now I can post whenever! I'm working nights now so my hours are totally fucked. I work from like 3:30pm-2:00am. This morning I had watch from 4:00am-8:00am. That was a long night. I didn't get to sleep til like 9:30 this morning. I'm so drained. I got wasted Friday night and missed muster that morning. Needless to say, Chief K. was not happy. I'm totally trying to get time off in July to come home for Lollapalooza. Freaking Death Cab, Hello?! I may have finally found a house to rent. It's awesome. It's in the resort area of Virginia Beach. Like a block from the beach. It's flippin' sweet! Current Mood: tired

|Hey, guess what: I'M HOT!
So stuff is pretty sweet out here. The weather is starting to break and it's almost nice out (score). I saw that Hot Hot Heat, Louis XIV, and The Blue Van concert. It rocked. Then Kristin came. I had sex. We had a sweet time. We saw Interpol with The Blonde Redhead. They rocked. I got free tickets to a concert and saw Long View, Dogs Die In Hot Cars, and Phoenix. They also rocked. And somewhere in there Kristin left. I was sad. Last weekend I went to a sweet party. Had lots of fun. Then that morning discovered a new love for smoothies. Yum. I'm in the process of looking for a place to rent. So that's sweet. And everyone's welcome to come out this summer for some good times. My couch is your couch. Or if you're lucky maybe I'll buy a blowup matress. Who knows. In case any you were wondering what's up with me since we haven't seen each other in so long; I'm still really hot.

Good day everyone. Interesting weather I'm having (snow, sun and rain; varying between 55 and 31 degrees in like 3 hours). Hooray for Virginia. I just bought tickets to go see The Hot Hot Heat and Louis XIV at a club here. I'm definitely more excited about Louis XIV. Kristin will be here in like a week and a half. Hooray! That means I'll be sneaking her in the barracks (I'm crafty). I have no clue what we're gonna do. I bought us tickets for Interpol which is super exciting. They rock my socks off. It's too cold for the beach and VA=POO. So I'll be winging it for ideas of what to do. But we have some liquor, a bottle of wine and very dirty minds so we might come up with something. I'm getting ready to go back to my old job at the end of the month which is so not cool. That sucks. I saw The Jacket which is really good. I'm missing Champaign and all it has to offer. Namely, se...cuddling. I'm gonna get an apartment soon. Either in Hampton or Virginia Beach, haven't decided yet. Wow, I actually have stuff to say for once. And now I'm out of stuff...Later. Current Mood: excited

Well everything on my side of the country is going just as well as can be expected. I have a new job where the hours rock. So now I'm not working all the time. I saw Incubus play at the beginning of the month. Let me tell ya, my 5th time seeing them definitely didn't suck. My floor seats were very necessary. The cannabis smelled delicious. I'm sad that ODB died. Major bummer.
I'm also bummed about the election mostly because I don't want any of the 4 years of reservist duty I have after I get out to be active reservist duty but it's not in my hands anymore. Bummer.
I'm still with Kristin and that is by far the biggest blessing ever. Almost a year and a half now. Where did the time go?
In awesome news I'm gonna be home for Thanksgiving weekend. So if you wanna party just give the boy a buzz. I will hopefully be home for like a week around Christmas. So if you miss me the first time you'll get a second chance.
I'm hoping to get into some night classes here at Norfolk State or Old Dominion. But the Navy only pays for one class a semester so I'm not sure if I can afford it right now. If not I'm just gonna take a shitload of CLEP tests which the navy does pay for. My G.I. Bill which is retroactive just went up to $1100 a month which is a huge leap and very beneficial.
Hopefully I'll see everyone when I'm home. Peace. Current Mood: loved

One last word of advice: Everyone needs to VOTE!
Wow, I really wish I had something exciting to say like everyone else. Like, getting used to a new school or having crazy awesome parties. But sadly I don't have any. I've been working like 12-15 hour days and they really suck. I even worked all weekend. This is my one day off.
I hate my job. If it were anything else I would have quit a long time ago.
I need to be in school because I'm feeling really uneducated. Last night I was helping Kristin with her homework and I couldn't remember what helping verbs or prepositions were.
Speaking of Kristin, we're still doing really well. I wish I could figure out a way to see her more. It costs way too much money to come home on the weekends. The only real option I have is for her to move here which she's unwilling to do and I couldn't really afford anyway. Why do things like this have to be so difficult? Advice is always welcome. And trust me I've heard the "You just have to tough it out for a while" line way too many times. Especially when "a while" is a way of downplaying the term I use called: "Three years."
Soon I'll be going to Pensacola and the U.S.S. George Washington for a few weeks. I'm not excited.
So all in all this sucks and no one should be complaining about college because I'd trade you any day of the week. Current Mood: lonely

Well, I finally made it to the ripe age of 19. It took me a little bit longer than everyone else but I made it. I went to see King Arthur. It was good. My school that I'm going to is super boring. Thank goodness I get out early everyday. Kristin's coming to visit this thursday and I can't wait. Virginia=Boring.

|How to make a chrisbchillin|
5 parts friendliness
1 part arrogance
5 parts instinct
Stir together in a glass tumbler with a salted rim. Add wisdom to taste! Do not overindulge!
Man, I just realized that I complain an awful lot. What's up with that? I have an awesome life. Things are definitely cool right now.
I still carry the glow on my face from Kristin's week and a half here. That was a blast. I don't think we could have possibly fit anything more into that time. The beach (like 3 times), Busch Gardens, 2 movies, 2 huge malls, 2 museums, Harborfest, a battleship, and I'm certain I have to be forgetting something else. But I was definitely a busy boy. By the way we've been dating for an entire year now!
What's new on the newsfront? I'm broke. I have about $20 to last me until next month. That's a great way to go on a diet I guess. I could definitely use it seeing as how I haven't exercised in like a month. Not having a car sucks. But I'm certain most of you knew that already.
I bought tickets to see Incubus in October. Floor! Hooray! I don't think I have enough money to go see Dashboard Confessional this Wednesday. But trust me I'd give up my $20 for food to go see them. I'm definitely going to see 311 with The Roots in July which should be awesome.
I've decided I want to take up surfing. Now I just need money for a board and a way to get to the beach.
Anyhow, I've talked a lot and if you made it down this far you must really care. I'm out (like a fat kid in dodgeball).
I just remembered that a few of you have wanted my address for a while now. Here it is:
VAW 120 1026 Bellinger Blvd.
Norfolk, VA. 23511

1. Who are you?
2. Are we friends?

5. Would you kiss me?
6. Give me a nickname and explain why you picked it.
7. Describe me in one word.
8. What was your first impression?
9. Do you still think that way about me now?
10. What reminds you of me?
11. If you could give me anything what would it be?
12. How well do you know me?
13. When's the last time you saw me?
14. Ever wanted to tell me something but couldn't?
15. Are you going to put this on your LiveJournal and see what I say about you?
|Well hello there good friend.
I must say it has been a while. I feel like I have so much to tell you. I was recently home for a couple weeks which was so nice. I got to see a bunch of people. I did so many things it's almost impossible to recap everything. One of my favorite things was seeing Kristin. I'm certain you all expected that though. I saw Drew at a couple of his open mic nights (I think he's been practicing). I watched a musical-thing with Lynnsey. Emily was in the musical-thing. I met Drew's new girlfriend (Congratulations Drew). Drew, his girlfriend, me, and my girlfriend went to see Maroon 5. They rocked way harder than I thought they would. Who would've thought that they could cover "Highway to Hell" and get away with it? And then...Back to the Navy. Oh, woe is me. So...hard...to say...goodbye...Didn't want...to...go...But I did and now I'm here in Norfolk, VA. I haven't been here long enough to get a real feel for it. I hope I like it because if not it'll be a very long 2 years and 3 months. Well, guess I'll find out.

|How sexy is my name?
C - You are a very social individual, and it is important to you to have a relationship. You require closeness and togetherness. You must be able to talk to your sex partner before, during, and after. You want the object of your affection to be socially acceptable and good looking. You see your lover as a friend and companion. You are very sexual and sensual, needing someone to appreciate and almost worship you. When this cannot be achieved, you have the ability to go for long periods without sexual activity. You are an expert at controlling your desires and doing without.
I'd say that sums it up. Especially about the part about going long periods of time without sxual activity. They really nailed that one. Sad, but true.

|it's been a long time
well i bet you've all missed me greatly which of course is to be expected. regarding that may 30 post that was total bullshit. i'm totally dating kristin and i've never been happier. though not my idea we chose to keep the relationship hidden from a few people. whichof course is not the case now. Umm..so yeah a lot's happened since july 12. like i'm in the navy now. i'm living in pensacola florida. it sucks and so does the navy. i can't stand it in fact. i ould love to get out but kristin and i have decided that's not really an option(mostly kristin). so that part of my life really sucks. it causes slight fits of depression and anger. long distance relationships are hard but kristin is a girl that i could see myself marrying so i'm definitely going to stick this out. kristin's the only person who's been able to help me with what i'm going through. especially since none of my friends from back ever call(850 529 9269 in case you forgot. i recently shook hands with george bush sr. kind of cool. i'm very much looking forward to a visit from my sweetie on valentine's weekend. there will be much love spread upon her by myself.(and not in a nasty way either...perverts)(well...maybe). other than that be cool and give me a call sometime. peace

Well, you've all probably been wondering what rock I crawled under to not have updated my livejournal in so long but I can assure you it's no rock that I've crawled under. Things couldn't be going any better right now. Well, I guess having my license back would be a major plus but that's a long story and I'd hate to bore you all. Hmm...Lollapalooza is tomorrow. Hooray! That'll be majorly fun. I recently (no finally) turned 18. I was fortunate enough to go to Six Flags and Meramec Caverns on my birthday which was a ton of fun. Six Flags must have known it was my birthday because there were hardly any lines all day. To top off the day they set off fireworks in my honor. I guess turning eighteen is a major deal or something.
