The first wave: Aug - Dec 2006

Remember, the initial verve of this blog is to re-post and, shall we say, preserve, my old, dusty blogs from ye dead MySpace.  They retain their original edits, including their titles and when they were published.  They preserve a vision of a writing style trying to find a voice.  And this voice is a fascimile of how other teens supposedly blog.  All in the name of connecting with an audience that never was there.  Enjoy!

Subject : What I did this weekend, any weekend.

Well, for the young people, GHS just started classes. Frankly, I feel sorry for the new freshmen. They will face 4 years of increased security at GHS. Hell, when I and others started in 2002, security was more lax, meaning you could go into more places around campus.
On the other flipside, my other friends my age hadd just started college on Monday. I feel sorry and lazy that I put off school for a while. But c'mon: I get to go to Orlando!!! And Yanceyville is too small a town for my tastes. I wish everyone the best, until I call again to pass on what I'm doing in Orlando.
This past Friday, I went to the first legit football game at GHS, and it was not a good omen. The only real agreeable woman there was Jet Leigh, so that was a plus. But I really just went to latch onto women like Dare and Lucy. I was saying trash like "I'd say she's worth at least a cool billion!"(Lucy) Since Dare left too early, the only one I could suck up to was Lucy. The men there got pissed off at seeing me there, saying I should get out of town. Ouch. I wish I could've gone with YL to Windy Gap. But I'm too old, so instead I went to:
'Snakes on a Plane'! I don't think other people my age from the UNC crowd have seen it, but it was a blast to watch. I have not seen a lot of horror films, so this one went beyond what I was used to. It seemed like a satire on the typical Hollywood suspense film, as it was camp and all. I got some hearty thrills and laughs from the talking picture, what with the grisly nature of the story. Go see it if you haven't: you'll have a blast.
Then, later the next day, I picked up the newest Simpsons season on DVD. Now for me, each new set is like a mini-event. Just as The Simpsons is so heralded. And the best part was, it only cost $20 beans! So I watch this, and see alot of new shows I never did before, or just not for a long time. Highlights include Rodney Dangerfield's performance in a show as Burnses' son, Albert Brooks, and alot of classic dialogue. Meh, I just finished the set, and wait for future sets. Don't the young people get the Simpsons DVDs?
I'm getting my first car from pops on the 9'th: a Silver Ford Focus. Yeah, I wanted a Yaris, but nobody knows of them.
Well, I hope to post more once I arrive in Orlando on 9/11. I implore you to post comments on what I mentioned. Particularly the ex-GHS people. Chao for now.

The past few weeks have been a bang. Pokemon: Battle Frontier premiered tonight at 8:30, the first season of the venerable anime without 4Kids doing the dubbing. Taj, who did, had a mixed bag with their first episode proper. The voice cast, last heard in the Mastermind re-dub, seemed to be a bit awkward in this. My least favorite voice is Meowths, coming nowhere close to Maddie Blaustine's track record. I will stay tuned however; these guys will improve at their craft. But it won't be the same without our original voice cast. Hell, is it safe to discuss Pokemon with the typical myspace crowd?
In real life, I've been going aroud town to get ready for Orlando. And tomorrow I get my first car: a Ford Focus. Yeah, so it's a Focus and not a big shot car. I wanted a Yaris from Toyota, but no one sells them yet b/c they are so new. I pick the thing up in Raleigh. And I can thank my father for the car.
My parent has been to much of a bother for weeks now. She bitches at me just for being happy. She doesn't know me too well, because I do have more common sense than she gives me credit for. So being in Orlando for 4 months will be swell, everybody all neat and pretty.
Speaking of Myspace, I'm tired of getting group requests for burlesque and pornogrphic material. Not only is it wrong, but also full of offensive hidden costs. It's horrible and sad the way sites like Steamate objectify girls. Stop sending those requests, for the love of God!
To all of you ex-GHS kids, I'm not gonna be back for those 4 months. Being away from you will be grossly offensive. Has college destroyed your souls yet? I'm going to school when I come back, a bit richer and stronger.
Watch Pokemon: Battle Frontier. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

It's been a week since I got hooked up at Vista Way in Orlando, Fl. I've met lots of hot new kids my age, including roomates and apt. mates, co-workers, and boss men. I've also met someone special with whom I spend all of my evenings with. And with whom I have alot in common.
Speaking of work, it's getting more and more exhausting. I'm predestined to work many evening shifts, which destroy the soul. Disney World's Magic Kingdom is slow after closing time. So yeah, I'm working atthe rare, pricey magic kingdom. It was a blast early on, but I concern over my stress level. I will make sure that won't happen.
I want to say more, but an experience like this is emotional and spiritual. You really have to be there to have that feeling of awe and wonder. I'm licked, so I'm gone.

Subject : Almost time for that holiday rush!

I'm almost at the end of my Program tenure, returning on Jan. 3. To all that I haven't called, sorry. To all I haven't written to, sorry to you too.
I had my fling with Teresa for two months and it was a remarkable time. She left me 'cause she said I'm "clinging" Other than that, I need a new woman, and while it's better off than at Grimsley, I just give up.
The Walt Disney World Resort is a blast! I'm blessed to work at Main Street, USA at Magic Kingdom. It is the E-Ticket of the resort, and Magic Kingdom is the alpha omega. It gets busy now and then, particularly next week, but I keep it under control. I love what I do because I'm as entertained as the guests are. Alot of others working here don't so much, but I keep going the distance.
I've been known to be a real support to the team, known for an unstoppable smile and strong work ethic. Often, I'm doing work in an area all by myself, and well. Two, you at home would've loved to see what I have. I will sing along to whatever songs are around often because it's my only entertainment. And I'm like that anyway.
I wanna be the very best, like no one ever was. That's my feeling in life, it seems. I really enjoyed the experiance, learning about the grown world and myself. True, some roomates of mine are obnoxious, but that's another blog. One day, you'll either call me, or I you to regale you with my stories of these 4 months. Reply to this, Grimsley guys. I miss all.

In conclusion, I ended up deamonizing some peers of that present while romanticizing those of the recent past.  Walt Disney World Resort was a major focus, so much so that I only posted 2 blogs while down there.  The rest is all small talk over trends and frivolities.  It reads so unprofessional nowadays, with little of structured or focused writing.  Thank god blogging has matured byond the 'OMG LOL Cat' generation!
