Holy shit…

Sad video (above)

Is it selfish to want to have someone in your life who cares about
you, who will listen to you no matter how stupid you sound, who will be
there for you after every time life kicks crap on you, and who loves
you for who you are?

I don’t know…maybe it is.

Ok, I can’t put my Currently Listening thing up, which sucks because
I’m always listening to music on this computer. Whether it be Home
Grown, Simple Plan, Bowling for Soup, even Styx or Journey, I’m always
listening to music because I have 36 hours of rock music on my computer.

So I was reading opposite-sex-obsessed entries on other blogs, and it
led me to wonder…WHY am I not obsessed with girls right now? This is
seriously the first time since I’ve gotten to BSU where I haven’t been
obsessing over one girl or another. Not that I’m complaining: It feels
good to not be constantly pouring my hopes into something that (thus
far) has never worked out my way.

Part of me thinks that it’s because of all the stupid crap I went
through with Joan, all for absolutely nothing…I think overall though
that it’s just because I’m numb to girls at the moment. I’ve been
screwed over so many times that I don’t seem to have any desire to
enter into another situation where I will get screwed over.

On the whole, though, I’m really happy that I don’t have to worry about
what some girl thinks of me. I do wish, however, that I could find a
ride home for this weekend, though. Bobby is going with some ‘friend of
a friend’ that I know I won’t be able to tag along with, Eric is not
going home due to his duties as Newslink sports director, Ellen is
going straight to Pittsburgh because she is going to the Cubs-Pirates
game on Friday night followed by the ND-Pitt game on Saturday (lucky),
I know Allie is going to IU for the weekend. This all sucks rather
much, because I was hoping to head home this weekend. My last resort
appears to be John the Game Duong…we’ll see.

Sports stuff…Cubs suck…can’t wait for ND, BSU, and Panthers football…Bulls better get Pargo, Curry and Chandler back.

Bye.

Goodbye to Todd Hollandsworth, who the Cubs traded to the Braves today for two minor league pitchers.

The Cubs seem determined to enter a rebuilding mode…which is
something the Cubs have never really done. They’ve always been either
competing or (much more often) just plain bad. But now they’re
stockpiling minor league talent for their veterans…something I’m not
wholeheartedly against…it just comes as a shock when guys like Holly
get shipped out.

I had a decent day…lost to Bobby a couple times in basketball. That’s
nothing new but this time I lost to “Bobby with a sprained
wrist”…which is worse.

Eric told me he could hook me up with shooting football as opposed to
some of the bitch work…but I’d almost rather have the bitch work…I
like watching the football games as a fan so it would suck to lose
that…but whatever.

So yeah I think I’ll shower because I’m sweaty from basketball…bye all.

So the Cubs obliterated Florida 14-3. Derrek Lee hit 2 home runs,
pushing him to 39 on the year. He’s now 1 home run and 5 RBIs behind
Triple Crown pace.

Even though today has been, for the most part, just as lonely as
Saturday but it doesn’t seem as bad when it happens on a Sunday.

I hope week 2 of classes proves more interesting than week 1…it usually does.

Later on everybody.

I know this is a shameless plug, but I am the sports editor for an
online magazine and it would mean a lot to me if anyone interested
would visit the site. I am currently keeping daily updates on the
baseball standings and a lot of other features are in the works. Check
it out…

Sorry for all the multiple entries in one day…I really should stop
that…but thought I’d share my first fantasy football team and submit
it for critique by the sports fans of the Xanga world.

(This was in a 12-person league. Just FYI.)

Let me know what you think…

I face another lonely weekend night…I don’t even care anymore.

I’m going to try not to think about how pathetic it may or may not be
that, of the 14 girls on my buddy list, that I’ve had (or do have)
crushes on 8 of them. Makes one wonder if I’m capable of operating with
girls in a normal way…

Good-bye to Matt Lawton, who the Cubs traded to the Yankees today for a minor league pitcher.

The Cubs are done anyway so they might as well build for the future.

So, last night I went and watched a movie and hung out with a couple of
people I met online because that’s the only way I can have anything to
do anymore on weekends.

Today I have nothing to do again, so if anyone has any ideas, please let me know.

One week until ND and BSU start up football!!!!
