Friday night work had a christmass party at Guadalupe River Ranch. It's way out in the middle of nowhere. It took me 4 hours to get there. I discovered a little town named Medina. It was neither funky nor cold.
I arrived, shmoozed with my work buddies and their families, ate dinner, got paid, etc. Oh yeah. And I drank too much. Two beers, a glass of white wine, a shot of some "pinch" drink, and about a bottle of champagne. I felt soooo good. Then I went to bed. I'm happy to say that I've stopped puking. I'm not going anywhere near booze for a while. No sir.
I got home and read half of "Palm Sunday" by Vonnegut. It makes me want to be a writer. Reading Vonnegut always does. That seems to be a recurring theme. Something excites me, and I want to do it. Get your mind out of the gutter. Currently, I plan on being a rock star, writer, software developer, and psychologist. I guess I'll be in school for a while, eh?
My pal Tim from Albany is visiting me from Jan 8-13. I'm psyched. It's my mission to show him how wonderful Austin is, so that he'll fall in love as deeply with it as I have. Albany really is a hellhole by comparison. Also, I'm visiting Colorado for Christmass from Dec 23->29. Woowoo! I haven't been snowboarding in sooo long. I better get my silly white ass in shape.
I bought this Kensington webcam. I'm going to return it for a 3com one. Kensington gets real funky in low light. Hopefully the 3com will be better. It's supposed to be the best. Anyway.. this site will soon have a webcam. Exciting eh? I must remember to wear pants.
I'm going to write a movie too. I saw American Beauty the other night. Excellent, excellent movie. Hi, I'm Evan and I'm a ________, but what I really want to do is direct. Riiiiight. My brain feels so cooked. I'm not sad, I'm not happy. Eating a bunch of sugar had no effect on my mood. It's just... baseline... it's sortof nice not being so edgy or sad. So strange.. I had never drank so much before. So strange.
I feel like this

Woohoo! I just registered for my classes for the Spring. I'm gonna roXXX them shitz. I haven't been in school for about a year and a half. I can't begin to express how psyched I am. I have entered the world of college debt. Gulp.
Work is getting back in order. I'm ramping back up on this ASP project. I get to feel useful again. I'm gonna try to work 30 hours a week. I have night classes mostly, so I might be able to pull it off for a while anyway. Here's my schedule,
My love life is going really well. I've settled down with a cute Austin girlie. Oh yeah, and I learned to love a Chihuahua. God help me. :) I have none of my own yet. I decided against getting an Australian Shepherd until I'm at a place with a big yard and have enough time to do it right. Sigh.
I haven't been down to 6th street in forever and a day. I ordered a bunch of these things for a Christmas present. They're sweet. Yeah, I know I'm a geek.
Life always always always gets better. And it has. I started writing an "internet dating guide". If you have any funny stories, drop me a mail.
All I want for Christmas is time enough for everything...

Hey cats and jammer kids. Another exciting Evan-update.
I have recently been accepted to St Edwards University
Austin for Computer Science. Woowoo! I'm gonna be a smart boi now.
Here's the plan: go to school full-time. Take lots of computer and psych courses (with a concentration in psych). Go to Austin Community College this summer for silly language credits. Chalk up 24 credits at St Eds with a GPA in excess of 3.5 for major academic scholarships in the fall (next fall, not this one). So over 3 full semesters at St Eds I need to really nail
24 credits, 8 classes. No problem. Stay tuned. ;)
In related news, I am in search of a roomate. I have overextended an
invitation to my buddy Tim from Albany to come down here. He's a fool not to
take it. Anyway. I need a roomate NOW. No more dicking around. Once school starts I just won't be able to pay rent. I can borrow for a little while, but not for 3 years or longer. Funk dat! And just in time for Christmass too. Bleh!
Debt frightens me. I dread knowing that I owe some bank tens of thousands of dollars. I don't own a credit card. Tell me if THIS isin't shitty. My dad put me one of his credit cards when I was 14 to build up my credit rating. The credit card company put me on as a co-owner of the account, instead of someone who may use it. Sounds like a good idea, right? What went wrong?
Did the silly 14yo go nuts with it, spending up a fortune? No.
Daddy dearest was late with payments. Now, a 14yo cannot legally commit to a contract, so in theory I'm not laible for this fuckup. I had no right being on the card at all. So my credit is shot, from doing nothing, effectively. And you can't erase junk on a credit history thing. Once it's in there it's in there. I'm gonna file some contest to it though. Bleh. I hate paperwork. College is a big gunk or paperwork. I swear. They don't WANT people getting an education. ;)
So anyway... after I get my Bachelors of Science, I may work for a while, or I may get a Masters in Psychology. I would love to have my own practice. I need to figure out everything I need for that. Hopefully not too too much school.
I'm not sure yet what I'm going to do for a job situation. I'd love to not have to work at all.. but I don't think I'll be able to do that and pay rent at the same time. What a bitch.
I could use a good part-time / high-paying job too. :wink: :wink:
I ran into this sexy chica
on the street the other day.
