The Truth of a Liar

Hey kids,

So college is going well, psychology sure is interesting. It's a quite a bit different from high school though, but I think that will help me to not slip back into my old habits. I've been doing everything so far, and it hasn't been as bad as I thought it would be, but then again, it's only 2 classes. ha.

English 1010 sure is a lot of writing, but that's about all it is. It doesn't take too much thought, just time. My teacher sure is silly though, I'll tell you that. And it doesn't help that there are only 3 kids in the class.

So the way I'm going, I'm hoping to get a bachelor's degree done by about the time I'm 20, or so. I must make much haste, considering every time a new school year starts, the state government considers making me pay out-of-state tuition, which would then keep me from school, since we're not that rich. Hooray, pushing people away from education! Go America!

And as Randi mentioned in her blog, I'm not always with my "lover" as some people might like to assume (and don't say that you don't assume that at least every once in a while). On the contrary, she's always busy with things and I usually sit at home doing next to nothing. Also, phones were meant for answering, please. And when that doesn't work, there's a nice list of people that have called so you can call them back. What a grand concept, no?

Sorry about sounding like a jerk about it, it's just frustrating. I do love you all.

That's enough of a rant for now, I think.


P.S. Warped Tour is gonna rock! woo!

Vela, Together We Await The Storm

Well. Just so everyone's aware, I shan't be going to San Diego anymore, due to immigration issues. Ask for an explanation if you must.

On the bright side of that, I won't be missing any of my college classes, that I'm excited for. One of them is Psychology and I'm looking forward to it a lot. It's always interested me a lot and this could determine if I want to do it for a living or not. We'll see how that goes. Side note: is your friend for college books. I got two for 20 dollars, shipping included. Yeah, upcoming college kids, Amazon is good for you and your wallet.

Another high note is me being here for Warped Tour. Woo! That'll bring my Warped Tour streak up to 4 years in a row. Woo again! I'll be driving down in my Jeep, so if anyone wants to go, give me a call or text or comment or something, and I'll make a place for you in my car. Although, like always, no one's gonna go.

So all in all, I really don't mind that I'm not going to San Diego that much.

Today is my 3rd year blog anniversary! Everyone should celebrate by going back and seeing what a silly kid Berto was! and how dang emo I was too. haha. Man, I was(am) a silly teenager. Funny thing is, my very first post was about missing Maddy, and I could probably do the same now. ha.

It's weird how things turn out, isn't it? There's no way I thought I'd ever have a chance with her, but here we are...

That's all for now.

You And Whose Army?

Blog, go!

So here I am sitting at 1:22 a.m. on a fine Wednesday morning typing a blog! woo!

It's been almost 3 weeks since I graduated. I'm still not used to it at all, I always think, "oh, I'll be back in high school soon.." when I really won't be. None of it seems like I'm really done with it, that'll probably change once I'm in college, I guess. Which, for me, will be next week!

I decided/my sister told me to start college this summer with a couple of classes so I can get a move on with my education, seeing as my situation could change in a matter of days, depending. If I keep going at this rate, I'll probably have my Bachelor's in about 3 years or so...that's no breaks, though, but I think I could handle it. For the most part, I'm a pretty tolerant person, even when it comes to things like school. And actually, I'm really excited for college, despite me staying here for it. I have a feeling I'll do a lot better than in high school. A fresh start :).

Life has been good since graduation. Like I said before, I really don't feel any different, or like I'm part of "real life" yet, but I will soon. I haven't been up to much, except helping my dad out with stuff around the house and hanging out with people. The only complaint that I really have about life is the lack of seeing people! I haven't seen some people since graduation, and it's sad, really. They're people I should have seen by now, according to me. But yeah, I'll get over it, when I see them. I also miss all my friends that are in Europe. Hm.

I've been to a couple of concerts and played lots of drums, which has been going well. I almost feel like I'm stuck at the same skill level with drums though, I haven't really learned anything new lately...but something will come with time, if I keep at it.

The band (of the Postcards variety) is doing well. We've been trying to get our stuff in digital form so people can listen to it and take us at least a little more serious, but it's been hard. This past weekend though, we got the best recordings we've gotten thus far. We're gonna re-do them better this weekend, it'll be good. Note: It sucks when people aren't responsible about their job aka Tommy deciding he would forget about us and not show up.

In a couple of weeks, I'll be sitting in San Diego. I'm going with Maddy, Jake, and Jessica, which might be a bit weird, sharing a room with them, but I think we'll be fine. We're gonna be there for a week or so and I'm pretty excited. My cousin lives there as well and I'll try to contact him so he can maybe meet up with us and show us cool non-tourist things. Again, excited.

I guess that's about all that's been going on in my life as of late, I will try to blog in a more timely manner. It would be more encouraging if people actually read it though :).
