Subject:on a side note...
Time:8:55 pm.
I have generally been in an excellent mood this semester...

but i am happier than usual lately because of kristy. Things are going extremely well, and the outlook is good.

now, if the week would just end, i'd be a lot better cuz i'd finally be able to see her again.

Subject:to xanga or not to xanga
Time:8:53 pm.
I know a lot of people read this thing...not many people leave me comments, and a lot of people who read it rarely talk to me.

So, frequent readers of my livejournal, i pose a question:

Do i keep using this livejournal, in which i have posted 165+ times in the past year and a month? Or do i start using the xanga i've had since the beginning of 2002?

Leave comments in this entry and let me know what you think, because it is you...the reader...that keeps me going.

If i don't get any comments, i'm just gonna stick to the livejournal...if i get enough, then it is xanga.com/mikeyikeyikey

Subject:beautiful day
Time:10:53 pm.
Today was an amazing day...woke up and drove to palmyra to visit kristy...(no, not that one...a normal one :)) After a few wrong turns, i finally made it. Her family is really nice...her mom made some excellent pizza and then we went to this beautiful park in hershey.

Everything was in balance; it was great. The sun. The breeze. The little pond. The man playing the violin. And her. And me. It was beauty defined.

I'm amazed by how well things are going...so suddenly. I was convinced i didn't want to feel feelings for anyone again. At least for a long, long time. But things always seem to work out the way you dream they will when you don't have expectations. Most importantly, i'm not finding myself being overly sarcastic or rude...which is a sign to me that i actually want to feel the feelings that are there.

Ok, that's enough of that for now. Haha. Hope everyone is enjoyin their spring breaks...peace.

Subject:beer muscles?
Time:3:22 am.
Mood: excited.
It's weird...when it comes to meeting new people, i usually kinda lay low and wait for opportunities to step in. But give me one beer, and that all changes. I've met a lot of amazing people over the past couple weeks. In that sense, spring break couldn't have come at a worse time. However, when it comes to confessing feelings for someone, i knew it would take a little more to give me the courage to say anything.

On my way to friends and family night last night, my buddy matt informed me that 3 40's would be sufficient enough to make my beer muscles grow. He was right. Though the night had it's ups...the downs were just as memorable.
- me crushing a shot glass in quarters
- matt's unlikely redemption shot resulting in sean bonging about 2/3 of a 40.
- fallon drinking way too much and passing out
- most notably, hickman's projectile episode (yikes)

So anyway, after thinking all day as to whether or not to take a risk, i finally chose to do so. And everything has been great since then. I can't really say much now...but we'll see how things go. I'm very optimistic though...which certainly is a change in this department. I honestly thought i was done with feelings...but sometimes, certain circumstances can change even the most critical cynics...and i think that is what has happened.

I'm up here at millersville for most of break...work scheduled me as if i am here normally, and i didnt get any breaks on top of that. Oh well...i'll be home for a few nights, and most of the boys and girls will be too, so that will be nice.

Ian came up tonight, and him, bob, jenny and i went and saw starsky and hutch. Excellent movie. Definitely hilarious...and equally enjoyable to see will ferrell playing a serious role. HAHAHA.

In other news, i downloaded the yellowcard cd today. I'm really enjoying their sound. It's a more poppy type punk, but not anywhere near simple plan or good charlotte. I like them a lot thus far...and it'll be nice when they are here for the spring concert with something corporate. I can't get this "only one" song out of my head for some reason.

Ok, time for bed...i hope everyone has a great spring break and is back here soon. Take it easy everyone. NIGHT.

Subject:we like the mooooooon....
Time:10:23 pm.
Mood: energetic.
Yooo...just have a lot of energy right now so i felt i should write a little bit in here to get rid of some of it.

Hmm...not much to write about really. Worked yesterday and today. All of my buds have been stoppin by to talk and say hi and everything at work, which is awesome. Makes me enjoy my job more.

Umm, went to dairy queen tonight with d.wood to visit my awesome friend, kim. She may be engaged, but i can still call her hot right? Nah, she's really cool though, and i wish her the best of luck, obviously. Then i went to the uab meeting which was pretty cool.

Also, my interest is focused...the only question is: what do i do about it? It's not exactly a secret anymore. Hmm.

Ok, i'll update more later. Peace.

Subject:do you see what i have to deal with??
Time:1:00 am.
MUfalbee (12:57:59 AM): nope but whenever i want to make myself feel better i just compare myself to you

now, i must admit...that is pretty hilarious. But come on now.

Just as revenge, i will quote fallon from sunday night.

"How come they name the thing they use to clean the ice off at hockey games after a country?"

<look of bewilderment from everyone in the room, coupled with dead silence "you know, zimbabwe?" <more bewilderment, followed by hysterical laughing upon realizing she meant ZAMBONI. ----yea...now who feels better about themselves??

Subject:good times
Time:1:49 am.
Mood: exhausted.
Haha, i seriously have been enjoying everything so much...it's overwhelming at times. When i look back on how much my life has changed over the course of one and two years, it's almost like i'm living someone else's life. There just are so many things to be positive about...what started off looking like a depressing semester has turned into the best one ive had so far here at millersville. Obviously, it's owed largely to the fact that i've been able to refocus myself on friendships that i slightly neglected last semester...and of course to the many new friendships that have started as a result of looking in new places and having successful results in doing so.

The past weekend was another great weekend in a string of many in a row.

Thursday night consisted of the show at the club de' ville. I sang a couple songs with bob and jeff and then we watched ups put on a kick-ass show. Jeff, Joe, Laben and Funk put on a hell of a show, and it was very energetic and enthusiastic. Good stuff. Afterwards, i went and chilled at the new home away from home (806) for a while. Had another awesome night there as usual.

Friday was a rather unproductive day. Plans fell through for the night, so ian ended up coming up for the night and since it was late we didnt do too much. We went bowling, and ian now owes me $1880.00 since we were playing 20 bucks a pin and i beat him by 94 in two games. I'm still awaiting payment. Haha, it was a good night...good company. I'm definitely looking forward to getting home for spring break as much as possible (depending on the work schedule) and chillin with the guys and girls.

Last night was kinda crazy...back to 806 it was for a couple hours, and then to a party over the tobacco store. Got home very late...talked to some people (i apologize if i was a fool) and then went to fallon's to make sure she was okay alone.

Today, i went to the mall with matt and leah and i got a new hole in my ear...looks pretty good. I also was able to find a pair of pants at AE for 5.98. So that was a productive trip to the mall. I cooked some ham up and ate it with matt, dwood, katie and fallon. Then we watched Red Hot American Summer as we sipped on yuengling. Now it's time to head to bed.

I hope everyone had a great weekend. Definitely definitely lookin foward to spring break...classes are startin to get on my nerves.

Night all!

Time:2:06 am.
It seems that espn is showing a lot of table tennis lately...and i just heard the announcer refer to Jan-Ove Waldner as the Michael Jordan of table tennis. Is it possible to be the michael jordan of ping pong? Come on, let's get real.

Anyway...i'm informing everyone via this journal to come to the club de' ville on thursday night around 8pm. At 8, bob and jeff will be performing an opening set...and i'll be singing a couple songs, so i'm really looking forward to that. After our set, UPS (featuring jeff, joe, laben and funk) will be putting on what is looking to be an amazing set. It's shaping up to be quite the night...and it's gonna bring back some good memories of the FNTF days. Things have certainly changed since then, but singing tonight at jeff's really made me realize how much i miss performing and being on stage in front of people. Ugh...

Ok, it's time to shower and head to bed. I gotta get up for my only class of the day tomorrow and then i'll be napping all day and eventually heading to work from 430-930. Come visit me.

Night everyone.

Time:2:03 am.
Mood:eh....tired i guess.
I had a really great weekend, as seems to be the case lately. Friday night over at 806 was probably the best night i've had this semester. So great, that when i checked my journal the next day, i didnt even remember making that post about matt and i owning the pong table. Haha. But, along with the good times came some actions (later) that i am not too proud of. I acted way out of character and am partially ashamed of myself for letting what happened happen. On one side, i was not 100 percent coherent, but i can't use that as an excuse. I should have thought more about the repercussions of things before i acted....and i apologize.

Anyway, saturday was rather uneventful. I wasted away the afternoon until i had to go to work from 5-9. The crew went and saw Kill Bill over at the SMC for $.50 so that was nice. I'm still up in the air about the movie, but it was good. The gore was a bit overdone, but it was nice seein some women kickin some hardcore butt.

Today, i woke up just in time to go feast upon a nasty brunch at gordinier with matt, jodie, jenny and laura. Soon after that, my dad, stepmom, brother and sister showed up and took me out to House of Pasta. The place was a bit too smoky for my liking, but the food was pretty good. It was very nice to see them all though...i miss them all a lot. I'll be able to see them all relatively soon when i'm able to get home for spring break. So that'll be nice. I also miss the crew from home, so it'll be nice to see them too.

So here begins another week of excellent classes. Fortunately, i had exams in all my classes last week, so i wont be anywhere near as stressed out this week. It'll be a good opportunity to catch up on reading and everything. I have a lot of things on my mind, so i'll have plenty of time to think about everything. So yea...awesome.

Hope everyone had a great weekend, and for anyone with midterms this week (or soon)...good luck.

Take care everyone...NIGHT.

Subject:hahaha this is the dumbest quiz ive ever taken
Time:7:56 pm.

You're Brazil!

You're athletic, charming, and probably a good dancer.
 Unfortunatley, you don't really mind chopping down the rain forest, and you probably
consider homeless people expendable in certain circumstances.  Of course, your
personality is so diverse that it's hard to track down exactly what you're like.  You
definitely like Pele, the World Cup, and shouting "gooooal" at the
top of your lungs.

Subject:what a night
Time:3:17 am.
I probably should not be posting anything now...and should be sleeping instead.

But i just wanted it known that tonight was by far the most fun ive had in a lonnnng time.

Even matt jenkins and i owned the pong table, so you KNOW it was a good night. The British American Alliance retired as champs after knocking off DWood and Jay (team darkness) after their streak of 5 wins. We won 7 in a row and retired as champs, just like lennox lewis. Anyway, a great night over at fallon's...and hopefully more to come.

Annnnd it's time to head to bed. Night everyone. Hahaha

Subject:life cannot get much better
Time:2:22 am.
This entry is kinda unnecessary, but i wanted to post it anyway because i wanted everyone to know that i'm really a new person as of late.

Things have a funny way of falling into place at their own times and discretion. I'm meeting new people constantly. Friendships I foolishly neglected while giving up my own life for someone else's well-being (huge mistake) are stronger than ever. I'm building much closer friendships with people i never thought possible. I have so many reasons to be happy.

Last weekend was a great one. My mom came up for the day on friday and spent the day with me. We went to bj's, the mall and had dinner. She stayed at the Inn and left the next morning while i got pretty messed up friday night while participating in edward quartyhands over at joe and katie's place. Saturday consisted of hasty preparations for valentines day night. Bob and i cooked dinner for jenny and rachel (chicken parm) and it went really well. We went skating, and afterwards (before anything could happen) i kinda put a damper on the night. It was a nice, simple valentine's day. Nothing extremely fascinating...but everything went well until i went and ruined it. Haha. Anyway, i was persuaded by tiff, amanda and emily to get drunk with them...and i was more than willing to oblige. Sunday, i studied a good deal for my night class exam on monday...last night i was up until almost 4 studying. Now that today is over, a huge weight is off my shoulders so i was able to relax a bit tonight.

Aaanyway, not much else to report on really. As i said, i'm very happy with the direction everything is going in my life. It's amazing how liberating it is to move away from something you thought was amazing only to find that it didnt even come close. In some ways, it's a little depressing when i think of how much time and emotion i wasted, but to be able to open my eyes to a much better life soon after is worth all the sacrifice.

This entry was a bit too upbeat, and i apologize. I'm just in a great place in so many ways...and i couldnt ask for more.

Here is some disturbing news: Bob is a huge mr. big fan. Haha.

You are GUTS. You love to be "xtreme"

Does anyone find it weird that ever since Saddam was captured a while ago, we havent heard a single word about it?

I've been thinking about this lately, and i can't figure out why this isn't a major news story still. Kinda makes you wonder...but at the same time, i bet this is something that not many people have thought much of. I still tend to think that this is a relatively major news story.

Subject:my how the tables have turned
Time:2:24 am.
Mood: excited.
It's funny...it's been about a week almost since i actually wrote an entry in here that had some kind of actual substance to it. I find that if i have time to write about how well i'm doing, i'm really not doing that well. It's not to say that i was doing badly, but the fact that i haven't had time to write any real entries in about a week is a good sign.

So going to penn state for dan's birthday didnt work out. I had just gotten off the phone with him and had gotten directions. I had finally made up my mind that i was definitely going, and then i encounter some technical difficulties on the way out...and i wasnt able to go when it was all said and done. Apparently i missed a really good time, and i hope that everyone isn't upset with me...because i basically havent talked to anyone since then. I was really disappointed that i couldn't go...so i actually ended up staying in for most of friday.

Finally, i got so bored because i was alone that i went out to a party at laben's in brookwood with joe and a couple girls. I ended up spending a great deal of the night with rachel...we went to denny's until 4am and had a great time talking and stuff. Same thing happened saturday night more or less...and things have been going well. She's a great girl...a little bit taller than me, but she puts up with my sarcasm constantly, so she gets some major points for that.

So, for as much as i was looking "forward" to spending valentine's day alone...it looks like i found someone to spend it with. I was not looking forward to all the bad memories of a year ago popping back into my mind, so the timing has been perfect. We aren't together by any means...i'm definitely not ready to be in a relationship. I had too much fun last weekend to settle back down again...but at the same time, this girl is really cool. So that's that...

Let's see...classes have been goin pretty well. Definitely a lot more work than i anticipated at first...doing a lot of reading and work for my calc and legal environment of business classes. My financial accounting class is actually pretty interesting - but a lot of work. The online quizzes we take each week take forever because they are so specific. But i was definitely proud of my 17/20 i got last night on my chapter 3 quiz. Unfortunately, i have exams in all my classes but one next week...so a great deal of this weekend will be spent studying. Not many people will be around, so i'll be able to get a lot done on sunday - when i plan on spending the entire day at the library.

Work is going very well...we had our christmas party on sunday at fridays and sitting at the cool table with jane and tammy, i was served which was pretty cool. It was a good time. Then, monday was the Q12 meetings where issues are discussed between the managers, office workers and the customer service staff. It was relatively intimidating given that i was about an average of 15 years younger than everyone else. But seeing how these people will determine whether or not i'm eligible for paid internships, i figured i'd make my name known and made some pretty astute comments. I was so nervous at first and was unable to finish a sentence without gasping for air...but they all encouraged me and some even clapped at what i said, so that was a big time confidence booster. I was proud of myself.

Tonight, matt, bob, and i went to the diner with lauren to celebrate her birthday. It was arguably one of the best nights ive had this semester...matt had a pube in his eggs over easy. He also let out a childish burp that brought us all to tears of laughter. Haha, it was definitely a good time.

So the rest of the week should go by relatively well...looking forward to the weekend already even though it's only wednesday. My mom is coming up on friday for the day, so it'll be nice to see her. Also, congratulations to my brother on his acceptances to rutgers and northeastern...hopefully emerson will respond soon so he is able to go to the school of his choice...but even still, his 2 current options are very good schools. I'm really proud of you brian.

Ok, it's definitely time for bed. Hope everyone has a great second half of the week. Night everyone.

;) FMG
