The Truth

In August, my roommate, Erick and I got into a scuffle. One of the things that happened was that when I first moved in, it was going to only be for six months. Those six months have turned into three years. In those three years, I have not really kept up my end of the bargain.

I am not a very tidy person. My parents never really taught me how to be a tidy person. So all of this time I really haven't been doing a good job keeping the house clean. I am also very lazy. I usually wake up at 9 and play video games or watch movies until I have to go to work at 2:45pm. He really started getting tired of this.

He said that he was tired of me taking advantage of the situation and wants me out by October 4. If I can find a job by October 4, I can stay until February.

So here's what happened since our little scuffle. I have kept a cleaning log of what I clean every day. So far I have been keeping up with it. I clean something everyday. Some things are on a cycle. I vacuum every other day. If there are dishes in the sink, I clean them. I clean the bathroom every weekend. I don't watch that many movies or play that many video games anymore. I apply for jobs everyday I have been calling every place that I apply for. So far it hasn't been good. Nobody seems to be hiring. I am not giving up.

I'm really trying to better myself. I've been keeping myself accountable. Growing up, I don't know why, but my parents never really showed me any life skills. My grandparents and other family members tried, but I never really saw them too often. Nobody showed me how to save money, how to clean, or take care of myself.

My dad watched a lot of TV. So much that he got a lot of his parenting from TV. I remember I was eight or nine years-old and I did something bad. I don't remember what it was. My dad asked me, "How would Jason Seaver (The dad on Growing Pains) handle this? My sister went missing when I was younger and he asked me, "How would My Two Dads handle this"? I know I joke around a lot, but that actually happened.

Enough about my dad, I have two options that I really don't want to pursue. I have an uncle that lives in Utah who wants me to find a job out there. I would have to find the job first before I go and move there. I would have a place to live and I wouldn't have to pay any rent. I have another uncle who lives in Virginia. He would help me find a job out there. I would have to find a place to live though.

The option that I want to pursue is that I need to find a full-time or a second job here in Downey. I have an interview for a job in Utah. I'll be making the same amount of money there as I do at Albertsons. I hope to have a car pretty soon so I can widen my areas.

October 4th is creeping up on me. I know I did this to myself. I don't know what to do. I don't want to be homeless. I didn't want to ask for help, honestly, I don't know how. I just know that I had to get this out in the open. It's been really tearing me up inside. If anybody out there can help me. Please let me know.

A Christmas Carol

The other day I saw a poster for the new Jim Carrey movie, "A Christmas Carol", and notice that his Ebenezer Scrooge closely resembles his character in another Jim Carrey kiddie movie, "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events". Comment me if you disagree.

The New Chris Luna

So check this out. Since the beginning of August, I have decided that I'm going to start changing my life for the better. I'm gonna do this mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Mentally - I am getting over my fear of driving You know, telling myself that I can do it instead of being afraid.

Physically - I really need to start taking care of my body. I'm slowly but surely giving up sodas. I am also staying away from spicy foods. One day I'll give up the fatty and sugary foods as well.
I'm also riding my bike a lot more and walking too.

Emotionally - I am really thinking about moving out of California. It's emotional because I really don't want to do it. My family and friends are out here and I don't want to do it. We'll see what happens.

Spiritually - God is in control. I know I won't get lead astray.

I have also started cleaning more and I keep a log of what I do to keep me accountable. I just thought I'd share this with you.

Just Another Song that I've Grown to Like

Here's a jewel from 1998. I remember hating this song when it first came out. It was WAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYY to overplayed for a couple of years. Now that it's been eleven years. It's like most song that get overplayed when they first come out, first you don't want to hear it, then it becomes okay to listen to.

Ladies and gentlemen, performing their hit song, "You Get What you Get", here are New Radicals

The Musical World of Albertsons

If you go into Albertsons, you may or may not notice that we have a wide range of music. I guess that's like most stores. I'll give you an example of what happened yesterday. I heard Guns N Roses followed by James Ingram, James Taylor, Green Day, The Ramones, Green Day, Whitney Houston, Joan Jett, Lenny Kravitz, 4 Non Blondes, Poison, Mariah Carey, and Willie Nelson (I get bored at work, so I keep track of the songs they play). Some songs they play are awesome, some you just love to hate. Then there are songs that just seem to grow on you. No matter how much you may hate the song, if you hear it enough times, you may even like it.

Robbie Williams is an artist that I don't really care for. I don't like him because A). His name is too close to Robin Williams. and B). He just looks and sounds like he's way to cool for you to even listen to. Anyway, There is a song that plays at least once a day called, "Angels". When I heard it, I kinda liked it. Then I found out that it was Robbie Williams. I still kind of liked it, but I really tried to get it out of my head. I look at it now, and I'm not ashamed that I like it. I just think it's not that bad.

There are so many artists out there that I don't like, but I like a couple of there songs. Or, I like the melody, but I dislike the song or the person singing it.

Do you feel this way, let me know by leaving a comment. If you don't know the song, "Angels", here it is.
