I decided I’m not renewing the hosting when it’s up in February. I’ll keep the domain and have it redirect to my Tumblr. When I told my dad he needed to transfer everything to gmail, my mom got so mad at me. “How much does it cost to keep the email? Why are you doing this? Can’t you just keep it going?” I figured she’d get pissed about the new TV I bought. She gets pissed about the email instead.

I wish you hell

Over the last number of years, I’ve found myself losing interest in everything I once cared about. Web design, blogging, movies. I used to get really excited whenever something exciting happened, “I can’t wait to blog this!” Now, it’s more “Maybe I’ll blog this whenever I get around to it” ..A few months later. By then, the details are foggy at best. My memory is shot. My days are all spent the same; Surfing Facebook, Reddit and Tumblr until I’m so annoyed with those that I end up taking a nap just to pass time. One of my acquaintances made the comment recently about how I should find a hobby, like it is really that easy. I just don’t enjoy things like I used to and I don’t know how to change that.

Tim: Untitled-2

One day the shadows will surround me

August 1, 2016 2:29 am Comments (1)

I’ve always felt like such a filler friend. Even back during the Casey days. When I moved in with Corey, he was always so angry and sad until Brittany came around, she always got the best parts of him. As soon as she left, it was back to the status quo. I’m not without my fair share of faults. I’m so antisocial and socially inept, I prefer to spend most of my time by myself. I don’t really know how to talk to people, parts of me wish I did, but it can be pretty exhausting. Most of the time when I do speak, they seem disinterested. I find it hard to believe when people say they miss me. Why would you ever miss someone like me? I’m boring. I barely show emotion or respond. I’m lonely and sad all the time. You’d think by now it would get better, but it never really does. You learn how to deal with it at a certain point. When I was in my 20s, I was angry constantly. Now I’m in my 30s and I’m indifferent. I don’t know which is worse. I feel like I had a purpose back then at least, foolishly believing in things, even if nothing ever came of it. Now I’m older and know better and I’m left with this empty shell. I wish I had a purpose in life.

Do you remember me?

Three months without an update. I just got back from Nicole’s today. The first thing my mom asks me in the car is if her dog was still living. I explained what happened, how she died last month, after having a bunch of seizures, she then proceeded to go back to her Abby comments, this time throwing some nice guilt in. “I thought she was sleeping. I guess she was, in heaven. I kept telling you to come home, but you wouldn’t. Did you cry when her dog died?” She’s such a weird person. She constantly calls us ungrateful, I realize I’m not the greatest person, probably not even a good person most of the time, but when she does shit like that, I really don’t want much to do with her. They stopped at iHop, but we’ve been eating out so much lately. Arby’s, Mcdonalds, Wendys, Long John Silvers. I’m sick of fast food. iHop is breakfast, I guess, but it’s still not something I wanted to eat. I waited in the car. I think it was at least an hour. I tried to entertain myself as best I could playing Pokemon Go, trying to catch the random Pokemon that would occasionally pop up every 10 minutes or so.

When we got home, I had chicken Alfredo and my dad had a ton of apps on his phone that needed updating. Not sure why he didn’t bother updating them, he had like 39 apps to update and a system update, then my mom decided she needed to look up prescription side effects and reviews right that instant. She spent a good hour in here. Then my dad wanted to look up some fishing lure.

During the last few months, I bought a bunch of shit. A new mouse, that originally sold for $40 for $25. My other mouse stopped working properly. Single click would double click, double would triple. Annoying. Overwatch, Borderlands and Destiny for the PS4. Borderlands was on sale and Brittany wanted to play, so I snatched it up. I got a PS+ subscription for $37, normally $50. Full price for Overwatch, but Irma is all about that game, so I figured I’d get it to play with her. I bought Destiny during Prime Day. $21 for DLC and other stuff, was mega stoked, then on the day it was set to arrive, I noticed it was a used copy. I put the weapons code in, it worked! Phew. I put the DLC code in.. not working. Tried at least three more times. Nada. I contacted Amazon support, he really seemed like he wanted to help, but the most he could do was offer a $10 gift card or return the game. I didn’t feel like going through the hassle of that, so I took the gift card. Bought one of the DLCs, but I think there’s three total. Karma caught up to me after the other sales, I suppose.

My parents came to get me because they decided to schedule a foot doctor appointment for me on Thursday. They were going to meet me there, but I wanted to get my PS4 and I kinda needed a break at this point. We don’t really talk all that much, most of our time spent together is watching shows, sleeping or sitting on our phones. Despite past posts where I would marathon the shit out of shows, watching show after show every day, all day eventually wears on you. I wish we talked more, but I have very poor social skills and she seems disinterested in what I say most of the time. Her mom ends up talking to me more than she does. I know the cancer makes her tired a lot, but it’s hard not to be jealous sometimes when her other friends come over and she talks non stop for hours. Granted, she doesn’t see them often, but it still makes me feel easily replaceable, like a random body to keep her company until better company comes along.

We saw a bunch of movies. Central Intelligence, Warcraft, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows. (We saw that one in 3D, it was my first 3D movie, kind of interesting.) X-Men Apocalypse, Captain America: Civil War, The Conjuring 2. I feel like there was more, but that’s all the movie stubs I have.

A few more weeks until the Note 7 releases, I’m pretty excited. They’re unveiling it on August 2nd. I figure if it sucks, I can just get an S7 instead, but I think at this point, my made is made up on the Note no matter what happens. I updated my laptop to Windows 10 because I needed something to do and felt bad wasting the “free upgrade” .. spent most of that day tinkering with settings and turning things off. For awhile, it kept randomly blue screening. It was on for pretty much two months straight.

Saving money is hard

I also have poor self control and end up buying things I see without much of a second thought. The Playstation store has a bunch of games on sale, so I want to get LittleBigPlanet 3, Killzone, and Beyond Two Souls. Check another three games off my wishlist, though.

Nicole’s dad brought me back home today. It was an interesting ride. Before I left, I installed Windows 10. I loved the UI, but I was having a ton of compatibility options, so I reverted back to Windows 7 and ended up having the same issues. I thought I would have to reinstall 7 (Really wasn’t looking forward to that) but when I turned the computer on today, the Battle.net launcher reinstalled itself and the problem is fixed, so I’m not going to bother with it. I put Ubuntu MATE on my laptop. I’m not sure if it’s really better or not, but I like it. It seems to load faster. I still have some issues to work out, but my hands are tied at the moment. When I was coming inside after Nicole’s dad dropped me off, I was walking with my dad, trying to grab on to something for better balance, missed the grab and fell on to the gravel. The fall didn’t hurt me so much as it did my phone. I landed directly on it. I came inside and tried to check for texts and there was a tiny sliver of color. I angled the phone slightly and saw a crack all down the right side of the phone. The phone turns on and off but the screen no longer works. That was just the beginning because then my mom feels the need to tell me that my phone shouldn’t be in my pocket. Where the hell am I going to put it? I told her thank you, because.. what exactly do you say to that? She told me I was being a smart ass. I was already tired from the drive and I was up at 6 this morning and she launches in to her usual 80 questions. I don’t like answering them normally, let alone when I’m sleepy and extra grumpy. It’s really frustrating.

I went over Nicole’s on the 8th or 9th, I can’t remember now. For my birthday, they got me cake, two Breaking Bad figures and a Star Wars blanket. Unfortunately a day or two after that, Nicole ended up spending four days in the hospital. During her hospital trips, I usually end up staying at the house with her dad, which is kind of weird. I was going to come up on Saturday, but she figured she’d be coming home soon and dragging my stuff plus her stuff around is a lot of hassle. She came home that Sunday. We pretty much just watched Criminal Minds the whole time I was there. (We finished 9 of the 11 seasons) I bought her a second cake since she missed out on the first one. She really enjoyed it. Thursday, she had chemo. I hadn’t slept all night, I was absolutely exhausted. Her dad likes to leave early, like 7 am, since it takes two hours to get there. I slept briefly in the car and passed out randomly throughout the day. They’d yell my name and it would take forever to wake up. While we were waiting on her, someone brought their 135 lb Newfoundland therapy dog in. I was internally screaming, I really wanted to take a picture of/with it, but she didn’t bring it over to me. It was so big and derpy. When we finally got back around 6 pm, it didn’t take long to pass out. I think I slept from 7 pm to 6 am.

I’ve had heartburn all night. I am super upset about my phone. I think the worst part about it for me is I had stuff saved on the memo app that I wanted to watch and now I can’t remember what it was and don’t have access to it anymore. It’s been bugging me all night. Luckily, my brother said he has an extra S5 I can use. I really didn’t want to give in and get a new phone yet, since I’m eagerly awaiting the Note 6. I at least want to see the specs and stuff on it before I make a decision. If it ends up being disappointing, I’ll get the S7 Edge, but I have to wait until July or August for the Note to release. Such a long, torturous wait. I bought my mom a mother’s day necklace. I’m really excited for it to get here, but I know she’ll find something wrong with it. If I don’t buy her anything, I’m ungrateful. If I do buy her something, she ends up not liking it. I can’t really win. I’ve been crazy tired all day. I fell asleep for 45 minutes, woke up to eat, then slept for another 2 hours.

I went over Nicole’s on February 12th, we had plans to see Deadpool on opening day, but when I got there, she ended up having a fight with her mom. Between various other things happening, we didn’t end up seeing the movie until the 27th. Her friends birthday was the next day, so we celebrated their birthdays together by going to Texas Roadhouse. I’ve never been there before, it was so crowded and so hard to get in to seating. It took us 10 minutes figuring out where to fold up and put my walker so it was out of the way. I’m not really a huge fan of steak, so I got a cheeseburger and fries. It was really good, but I’m not really all that picky with cheeseburgers anyway, it’s really hard to fuck them up. We watched Deadpool after dinner, we barely made it there on time, getting out of the restaurant was a hassle and then we stopped to get snacks. It was super funny, might be one of the few films I actually purchase.

We didn’t really do much besides that, caught up on shows. House, Fuller House, Raising Hope, Walking Dead, Scrubs. She spent a few nights in the hospital. Came home yesterday, had a ton of things waiting for me. Got a new Star Wars shirt, a new keyboard (Corsair Gaming K70 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard), new speakers (Logitech Surround Sound Speakers Z506) and Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D for the 3DS. It was normally $40, but I got it on sale for $16. The keyboard is really nice, though louder than I’m used to. It lights up and is programmable, so I have blue lights going and when I press a key, it turns to white. The speakers, after listening to sounds through my monitor for the last five years, sound incredible. My dad came in to help me place them properly, but I couldn’t get two of them to work. He kept unplugging the same wires in and out over and over, I guess expecting different results. He was definitely determined, I’ll give him that much. I knew what the issue was, I was just exhausted and wanted some time to myself before I fixed it. The wire was plugged in to the wrong port on the computer. I’ve been listening to music all day now. There was a sale on Borderlands for the PC. Borderlands Handsome Bundle. It came with Borderlands 2, all the DLC. Borderlands the Pre-Sequel and a season pass for that. I ended up getting a copy for Christopher too, since he loves that game and I’ll have someone to play it with when I’m bored. He’s been playing it nonstop now. My allergies have been horrible lately. I really need a haircut.

[5:19:04 PM] Kris: You’re so weird
[5:19:22 PM] Scott: That’s why you stuck around for 15 years now, whats that say about you?  Maybe 16, I don’t remember when we met.
[5:19:38 PM] Kris: I’m desperate for any sort of friend

Let yourself unwind

Christmas Eve was mildly fun, if I’m remembering the correct day. We got Long John Silvers and opened gifts. My parents got me Star Wars and The Walking Dead shirt and pants. Christmas Day wasn’t as fun. We eat dinner around 1. Unfortunately lately, I’m not even up around that time, so I had to set an alarm to wake up and then get ready. My mom is a pretty negative person. If she has a problem with you or something you do, she’s going to tell you whether you want to hear or not. Repeatedly. I was over here with the kids, they were playing games and I was minding my own business and I guess she started arguing with my brother about dumb shit. My dad is over here cleaning up, begging her to drop it and move on, but like I said, she will keep going regardless of anything. He was actually getting pretty animated over here, pacing back and forth. He’s usually a pretty calm guy and puts up with a lot from her. I’m not quite sure how he does it really, because my patience with her is nonexistent. That’s a horrible thing to say about your mother, but it’s true. She doesn’t have a nice thing to say about anything or anyone. She’s so toxic to be around. You’d think by 30, our relationship would be better, but I think it’s worse now. The only time we seem to get along properly is when we go days without talking to each other. It’s weird when I’m over Nicole’s, her parents seem to like me so much and they’re both pretty positive people, even with everything they go through. Her mom laughs and jokes and loves to have fun and it’s such a pleasant change than what I’m used to here. Whenever I leave, they always ask when I’m going to be back and tell me they hope it’s soon.

New Years Eve was pretty disappointing for me. I was excited to spend it over Nicole’s, but she was busy, so I didn’t get to go over. My second choice was spending the evening was drunk, but my brother likes to not buy me the alcohol I ask for, 8 months later and they drank what they had, so I rage napped and woke up with ten minutes to spare. There’s a new Diablo season coming out soon, so we’ve been playing the PTR (test server) to try out new builds. I think I actually spent most of New Years Eve trying to reinstall Windows on my computer. Crystal found me a Windows version with the updates installed up until November, so I thought that would save me some time. At 2 am, I got the bright idea to reformat and install. I spent an hour trying to install it from that disc, but I kept getting errors. During all of this, I’m swapping my ram out and in to different slots to see which one works and which doesn’t. I ended up using the version of Windows I already had and it finally installed. Except I installed it on the wrong drive. I accidentally formatted my backup hard drive. I later realized I have all or most of the stuff saved on my laptop, so I don’t feel as bad now. I installed Windows on the right hard drive, my SSD and then installed the motherboard and graphics drivers. So far so good. I was downloading three or four programs at a time all night. I wanted to get Diablo out of the way since it was so big, so I left that download. I ran Windows updates, everything went smoothly and I haven’t gotten any errors, minus one, since I took out the other stick of RAM. As I was downloading stuff, I got a boot error. I got that one before, so I had to unplug my SSD and plug it back in and it’s been working fine since then, knock on wood. I went to Newegg to see about returning it, but they said they don’t offer returns, but you can contact the manufacture and they’ll handle it. It’s been less than a year, so I shouldn’t have any problems getting it returned for a new one. I emailed them on Friday, I think, so hopefully they respond soon so I can get a new one in here and back in business.

A week or so ago, I bought the latest GTA (Grand Theft Auto) on Steam while it was on sale. I never got to play it because of all the problems I was having, but last night, I finally tried it out. It’s a massive download, like 60 gigs. I had to play through a bit of the prologue, so I could play online, but I had tons of fun. I’m excited to play through more of the story, but I’m notoriously bad at multitasking games. I haven’t played Pokemon in awhile because I’ve been so caught up in Diablo, plus my sleep schedule is absolute garbage. It’s 5:37 am as I type this and I haven’t been going to bed until 9 or 10 am and then I get up anywhere between 2 and 4 pm. It doesn’t help that I eat late at night, take random naps and am massively indifferent towards everything. I picked up a blue PS4 dual shock controller yesterday so I could play GTA easier on the computer. I’m repeatedly kicking myself for not buying one while it was on sale. I was tempted to get Burnout for $5, I love that game, but then I saw that it only included one DLC pack, so I passed.

I still haven’t seen Star Wars, not sure when I will. I could download it, but I feel like that’s one movie that deserves to be seen in theaters without shitty quality video spoiling it. I have read spoilers, because I thought for sure Tumblr would spoil it for me before I got to see it, as they’ve done with a few other movies, but surprisingly they have not. This afternoon, Crystal said Erwin was selling his Playstation 4. I don’t really have much of an interest in console gaming these days. I haven’t played my PS3 in over a year, it’s not even plugged in, but I felt like I couldn’t pass up the price. Plus Tim and Kris are massive enablers and talked me in to it, so in a few days, I’ll have a PS4. I was feeling meh about it for a bit, but then I looked up some games for it and now I’m pretty excited. The Infamous games alone will be fun to play. I’ve always been a huge fan of that series. Journey, Killzone, The Last Of Us, Borderlands The Handsome Collection. They should hold me off for awhile when I finally get them. Now if I could stop spending money, I’d be set.

Lots of TV shows coming back in a few weeks. I’m really excited for The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow. I need to catch up on Castle and finish season 2 of Fargo. I’m sure I had other series to watch, but nothing is immediately coming to mind. (Edit: Grimm!) I recently watched this show on Netflix called Making A Murderer. I marathoned the fuck out of it. It’s only 10 episodes, but it was really suspenseful. Not in a scary way, just that you wanted to see how things turn out. Insert the proper word in there. Engaging? It’s a documentary, filmed over 10 years about a guy who was convicted of a crime he didn’t commit.
