Go Drug Task Force!

I was taking out the trash today, and suddenly I heard a really loud "bang" sound. At first I thought maybe a car ran into something. I didn't see anything though. Then I thought "well that's a good bit louder than a car running into something". Then I started walking into my back yard and suddenly heard "get on the ground, get on the ground!". I was a little scared because I didn't know what was going on, so I went inside and watched from the porch.

Standing in the back yard of another person's house were several men dressed in green. They had backpacks, helmets, and big guns! It took me a while to realize that it was a task force of some kind. After watching a while, a neighbor of the house told us it was a drug bust. There were ten men taken out the front door of the house, all whom possed guns. Some of the task force guys were walking in and out of the house, while some of the others were standing guard at the corners of the house.

I was waiting for some action, but it didn't happen. The most action there was was the gun shot and the yelling. It died off after that. I still thought it was pretty exciting though.

Touch Me -- You Might Get Lucky!

Today I went to the dump to take some trash. I had a co-worker, Jason, with me to help with the heavy stuff. On my way back to work, we saw a cop who pulled out and drove behind us. I mentioned how I had never gotten a ticket before, and how part of it was probably luck. Right as I said that, I stopped at the end of the road and looked both ways to see if cars were coming. Then I crossed the road. The problem was I forgot about the light -- it was red! The cop behind us followed us down the road, and when I pulled into work, the cop kept going down the road! He never stopped and said anything to me. He's either an extremely nice cop, or blind!

Video About Cheese Nips!

I have done a new video for YouTube. This one is about the great taste of Cheese Nips. I also discuss 'tokenblackchic' and why nobody should give her a gun. Also, don't mess with me because I can destroy you with the blink of an eye!

My Band Class is Done

I played music yesterday and today with the college band. After that, it was over. I will be missing it because I had a lot of fun playing with all those guys. My band director always kept things together, and for that I am grateful. I don't care how good some of those guys may or may not be, we wouldn't have been nearly as good without his leadership.

I'd like to join the class again in the fall. The next time, I'll be ready to make suggestions of songs I'd like to do early in the semester. I already have some songs in mind that I think he wouldn't be opposed to doing, so my only challenge is to remember until the end of August comes!

I Wrote A Song

I don't know what to call it my new song. It's written about me. I have put it up on the internet for download. You can grab it here. It's a good song I think. I have a dance I created for it too.

My Sax Machine Gun

I did a video about my saxophone. In it, I also request some suggestions as to what I should wear in my upcoming surprise video. The run-time is 4:11 total.

ProSonic Deadline Has Been Axed

If I want to sit around and be lifeless, I could finish ProSonic by 2008 without any problems. I haven't been entirely happy for a few months now and feel that I really need to spice up my life. I've taken some small steps to try and do this, but it's not enough. So I decided I needed to put the axe to the ProSonic 2008 deadline I set in my outline. The official deadline now is simply "when it's done". I refuse to be committed to ProSonic when it's adding stress in my life. I'm very excited about the project and want to finish it, but I need to be committed to much more important things.

This doesn't mean I will stop working on ProSonic. I'll work on it when I feel up for it and time permits it. I think ProSonic has sort of forced me to be on the internet more though. I need to be on the internet less, not more. I hope people understand my decision. I have thought about this for a while and figured this was the smartest choice.

The Vibes I Send and Recieve

I don't understand it. It's been a problem for me for years. It happens more with girls I meet than guys. This doesn't happen with every girl I meet, but once in a while I will meet a girl and give her the impression that I like her when I really don't. I don't know what it is I do. One person suggested I come off as way too nice to be genuine. I believe that's probably true to an extent. I have gone out of my way in the past to help people in ways that most normal people wouldn't ever attempt to help. My hope is that I will start a good friendship. Maybe I try too hard?

Tonight I was chatting with a group of people online. I didn't really know any of them, but I was hoping to simply chat and have a little fun as a result. It turned really ugly though, and this girl who seemed really nice to begin with slowly began to send a really negative vibe to me it seems. Her cousin was calling me a child molester for no reason that I can see at all. As his language got nastier, she didn't seem to care at all. When I tried to talk to her privately, she suddenly signed off (or blocked me; not sure which). It became obvious to me that they didn't like me.

I don't want to act like someone who can't make friends -- I've made many. I will admit that I have severe problems with trying to get to know people better though. This isn't just online, this is in real life too. I find it very depressing sometimes. If anything, I believe this issue is directly related to my poor social skills. I know I did nothing wrong to warrent the harshness that I came in contact with tonight, but I'm not even sure why I got it at all. Maybe they're just odd people, I don't know. I just wish more people understood me. I'm a pretty normal person (or at least that's what I believe!)

I might not even bother reading the comments to this post, because I can picture the type of comments I'm going to get from some people -- saying how there isn't a such thing as normal, or how I need to find a new group of people to socialize with. Those comments are exactly the kind of comments I don't want. Those comments are well-intentioned, but they get me a little mad. If I can't socialize with average everyday people, I'm an outcast. I refuse to be an outcast. Also, outcasts are usually very unsuccessful people in life. I'm not a weirdo, I just need better social skills is all.
