Many of you may have noticed that I don't get on Pleonast that much (What? No. Get out of here. You're kidding.). Seriously. So I'm here to say that I am officially cutting it off.
If ya'll want to see the progession of Rock, and who doesn't, check out what goes down with yours truely at myspace: Nickrock84. Anyways, later pleos. It's been fun.
Well why didn't ya'll tell me it's been oer a month since my last post? I mean really, you guys should know better. HEY WORLD! All kinds of stuff is happening this year - my last year. On top of school, which I managed to save all my hard classes until now, I also have work at Ruby Tuesday AND an internship at a radio station (Urban Radio, which owns 94.9, 103.5 and 105.5). The internship is cool. I'll be handling the sales side, but I hung out with the DJ for the first few nights. There's fun to be had in radio. Work is the same. I slave away for a few hours, doing the bidding of whoever comes in and decides to leave me three dollars. FYI, if you go out to eat and you have a problem, tell the manager. Don't just not tip or leave a small tip because it took more than ten minutes (at a sit down restaurant) to get your food.
Aside from that, life's been here. With everything pilled together, it's been rough. My gaming has slacked off, and anyone who knows me knows how much work I have to be doing if I put aside video games. All will be remedied when Splinter Cell comes out. And I better get some Wii action come November (I'm looking at one person here). Well, I bugged everyone long enough. Until my next post, keep on truckin' pleonasties.
Here I am at UNA for my fourth and final year. While it feels like so much has changed, it turns out little has. I'm in LaGrange as oppossed to Rivers Hall this year. Some dislike that desicion, but ol' MJ finally talked me into it. With her Mahoney, Tasha and now Jenifier (and perhaps Crash Samson), I can manage life over here. Don't get me wrong, I miss my River cohorts, and I'll find time to get over there. As far as actual school goes, well, it's there. Since it's my final year, my classes consist of nothing but communication courses. Is it wrong that even though it's my major, I dread most of these? The good news is that my teachers for all my classes are really cool and good at what they do. That's gotta count for something. I started back at Ruby Tuesday here in Florence after two weeks off. Again, nothing has changed there. The only thing that differs it is that there are tons of new people. What hasn't changed is that it's still boring, and when it's not boring, it blows. I have to start and internship somewhere, and hopefully it's a paid one so I can leave the serving world. And, because my post wouldn't be complete without a gaming issue, I find that the fall season is picking up. Dead Rising has been an addicting game, and I would love to play more of than the demo. And Xbox Live released Texas Hold 'Em. I'm not much of a poker player, but I may have to be now. As the weeks go by, the games will keep on coming, hopefully my classes will understand the importance of letting me play the greatness that is Xbox. Later peeps!
August...the last month of summer. The month when the lilies of the field wither.. wait, never mind that. But it is August and that means that it's only a few weeks until school. For the first time in my life, I actually want this summer to end. I am so (really) tired of work. Just so everyone can feel some of my pain, because of how the schedule works, I ended up working 11 days in a row. ELEVEN! And it's not like it's a short day. I'm talking full time work here. The saving grace was on my day off, I visited MJ and played video games all day. Certain doctors of the Corndog variety would be pleased to know that because of the amount of Playstations provided by MJ's friends, we were able to get 4 different Final Fantasies playing at once (5,6,7 and 10 I believe). Definitly better than any lan I ever played (side Halo, of course). Also, my next relief (and last) will be the trip to Nashville to visit Eric. It'll be a hoot and a half.
Well, my last summer is ending. Now, I get to look forward to classes, classes, and more classes (in between the job and possible internship). Why am I wanting summer to end again?
So, what do we have here, mid-month of mid-summer, and all is plain and simple for the Nick Rock. While, I'm sure I really have things to say, I can't think of anything. I work six days a week, and that's about it. I manage to find time to catch a movie every weekend or so, courtesy of the Arab crew. Last week was Pirates of the Carribean 2. It is a really good movie. There is some great swashbuckling and even some plundering. I must say I am pleased.
I guess the best part of the summer has been the water. My stepdad managed to get the jetskis and boat out. I love me some jetskiing. I got it up to 55 miles an hour! It is quite a thrill. I'm going to even get a tan!
Speaking of tan (more like lack there of) the video gaming summer is dropping. Now that Oblivion is done, I bought Lord of the RIngs: Battle for Middle-Earth 2. I already beat it. The next good batch of games won't come out til August (and the later side of it). My thumbs are not getting their maximum dose of joystick movement. Why is it that only when I don't have time ( or shouldn't have time) they decide to release a million good games. Oh well, enough gaming talk.
I guess I ran out of things to say. School is but a month off, and I look forward to seeing the crew again. May the Halo matches resume and may the late nights of fun never stop. First, may summer end well.
