Well i'm currently right in the middle of my freedom from the parents...of course they've called me like 5 times already...i've basically just sat on my ass doing nothing...but i've done nothing in just my underwear!
The dogs usually sleep in my parents room so to keep them out of trouble i've made them sleep in my room which is kinda a pain in the ass...they both want to sleep on my bed and if i don't let them they bark and whine and do all kinds of annoying things...so i use a fourth of my bed and they get three quarters of it...i'll put Remmington on the bed and he'll jump off after an hour then want right back on so i have to get up and put him back on...he keeps doing that...Remmington also wakes me up several times so he can go outside...i let him out at 8 am and then went back to bed and he came back whining to go out again at 9 am...little punks
I need music damnit!
I was wanting to get some CD's today because its been a while since i've gotten a new CD...few weeks...but all the CD's i wanted were either overpriced or not there at all...theres no way in hell i'm paying $15 for one CD...for three CD's, yes but not for one...so i'm stuck with going through ebay...had the two CD's i really wanted been at circuit city i would have paid $13 each but they weren't there...my impatience took over me being cheap...so i'll just buy like 4 or 5 on ebay...the two CD's i wanted were from a band called In Flames
That just bugs me
So i smashed this bug against my wall like 4 days ago and i haven't scraped him off of there yet...i really hate bugs...depending on what kind it is depends on the level of fear...but i'll forget about it for a while and i'll see it from the corner of my eye and freak out for a second or two thinking "shit, theres a bug!"...already done that like three times...really should clean that up
Chips and Dip
You know what i really hate? when you're eating chips and dip and you dip the chip into the dip and it breaks...i really hate that...today i put one in and it broke 5 times...5 times!!!...by the fifth time i actually yelled at the chip "god damnit! quit that shit!"...yeah thats right...didn't break after that...showed that chip who's boss
Manana...with that squigly thing on the n
Tomorrow i need to go to the bank, then to the post office, and possibly to the college book store to find out which books i need so i can purchase them somewhere else...i may sell a bunch of crap on ebay as well...yo necessito dinero
Alright well i better get back to being lazy...talk to you people later

A new entry...nothing really new has happened lately but i guess i can just talk about some random stuff like i usually do
Freedom!!!! (Yes I've recently watched Braveheart)
My parents are going to Disney World for their 25th anniversary which for me means 6 days of freedom! They leave on sunday...i must say, the last two weeks have been filled with bitching from my mother...the day before yesterday we kinda got in it because she kept basically saying she didn't trust me to take care of the animals..."i dunno if we should go on this trip...leaving the animals with you"...thanks a lot mom...you know the last few times they went on trips and left me with the animals, everything turned out just fine...i'm quite tired of her insulting me like that but alrighty...aparently i'm untrustworthy, disrespectful, and generally useless...but yes, after another 4 or 5 days they will be gone and i will have the house to myself...i was thinking of taking some days off from work but i don't think so...i'll get two days off anyways and i know i'll be bored as hell if i take more off...might as well make some money while i'm bored
Money Money Money Money
Kinda going along the lines of that, my dad bought a new laptop...the old one was a major piece of shit but this kinda brings things to my attention...we NEVER used the old laptop...i mean never...the only reason why he bought a new one was to put pictures on it when they go on trips...which happens once every two years or so...so he spent $1500 just to put a couple hundred pictures on a computer...also, and i'm not trying to sound selfish or anything butttt, we can go out and spend $1500 on a computer we're rarely gonna use and when i ask for something thats maybe $15 at a store or maybe even some chips and dip, i get lectured about being on a budget and we can't afford this and that...i could go on and on about this subject...its not like i ask for much...in fact i rarely ask for anything...its just that when i do, i get bitched at and from the looks of it, i shouldn't get bitched at at all...even when its like "hey can i borrow some money and when i get paid, i'll pay you back"...i still get bitched at...give me a break here...alright i'm moving on before i get onto the subject of the car, how i'm a horrible son, etc etc
Then I've Got To Do What I've Got To Do
Lately i haven't been doing very much...sleep and work is all i do...in between there i eat, watch tv, and play Command & Conquer Generals...that game is awesome by the way...it kinda brings Red Alert and Tiberian Sun together...which i liked both a great deal but i liked Red Alert much more...Generals is a great game though...when i bought it, i didn't really play it at all because my computer sucked at the time and the laptop was a piece of shit (a free piece of shit because my dad won it but a piece of shit none the less)...so the only way i could play it was on my dads computer...but now that i have something somewhat decent, i can play it
I'm a F-F-Football Playa
Football season is fast approaching...i need to go out and get some fantasy football mags and start planning...towards the end of august my league will be doing a live fantasy football draft...so exciting!...by the way, if any of you are interested, although the great majority of my friends think football sucks, you can join my fantasy football league...just let me know
So Much To Do, So Little Time
Today i'm gonna sit on my ass and do nothing...watch a couple movies...my parents bought Hostage and Tears of the Sun yesterday...both good movies...can't go wrong with Bruce Willis, right?...i'd like to sell some crap on ebay but i dunno...i'm lazy and don't feel like doing much
I Need I Need I Need
Oh!...i need to get Madden NFL 2006 and NCAA Football 2006 when they come out...thats like a hundred bucks there but maybe i can get some money out of the parents (maybe because we can spend money on things we're never gonna use like laptops but its just so painful to give their son a few bucks here and there)...i'm a broke college student damnit! all of my money goes toward college!...anyways...if you have both games, what you can do is make yourself a player, recruit him from high school to your college team and then draft him in the nfl draft...can you believe that? isn't that awesome?...i see Kollin spending many hours playing ps2 in the very near future...i know, my life is very exciting...its depressing really
You're Gonna Die Clown!
People have been getting on my nerves lately...well i say lately but its been going on for quite a while...i can only handle so much from some people...why i spend so much time on aim and msn, i just don't know...i should put a limit on myself or something...and theres some people i really just can't stand but i'd feel bad blocking them...with some people, and this really bothers me, i'll instant message them to talk and they'll take forever to respond...like 10 minutes...how is it possible for me to play ps2, read up on football news, and keep conversations flowing but you can't respond within a couple minutes? and it happens every single time...so with these people i've just given up on messaging first...if you wanna talk to me, you can message me and if you want the conversation to keep going, then you're gonna have to put in some effort...its kinda sad though because a lot of people do this to me which leads me to believe i'm one of those people on your buddy list that you only talk to when you're REALLY REALLY bored and theres no one else on...you know, you're sitting there, kinda tired, don't really feel like doing anything, nobody's online and you look again "meh Kollin's online...he's boring, not interesting at all, but who else is on? oh alright, i guess i'll message him"...and its like when i message these people they're thinking "ugh, you're not important...hopefully if i take forever in responding he'll just take the hint"...which i do take the hint...well shit, when i think about it, theres only maybe one or two people who don't do that to me...jerks...i mean even if i don't wanna talk to you and you message me, i'll try to keep the conversation going...i'll respond in a fair amount of time
Alright well i'm done bitching...everythings either stressful or boring...blah blah blah...new entry...talk to you people later

Oh the heat
So i get up...its about 1 in the afternoon...take my shower, get ready...gonna go search for some jobs...i open the door and BAM!...HEEEEAAAAATTTT...i think to myself every time "why in gods name would anyone, ANYONE, move to Texas, willingly?"...Colorado to Texas even...the beautiful state of Colorado with four seasons to Texas with two seasons (those being hot and really fuckin hot)...so thanks to my parents and colleges being so damn pricey out of state, i'm stuck here for another couple years...why...oh why...i need a job where i stay in a freezer all day...oh i'm dreaming of it now...the cold...wonderful cold...i stick my head in the freezer from time to time...i'm not ashammed to admit it...i do...its too hot here...its no wonder i don't feel like doing anything but laying around...its too hot to do anything...in fact, i was laying on bed before this thinking "oh its so hot...i dunno if i can get up and go on the computer...its just too much effort"
Geeze i'm even sweating right now and the only things that have moved are my fingers...i'll pay anyone some money just to kidnap me and take me to a state with colder weather...i'm telling you...the second i get the chance, i'm moving out of here! far far away! away!!!!!!
Too much work in one day
I did all kinds of shit today...well all kinds of shit probably isn't very much to the average person but to me, its a lot...i went to wendy's and picked up my check...$200...at least i've earned some money this summer...i'd say "man i shouldn't have quit my job at wendy's" but you know what? it really fuckin sucked so no, i don't regret it...anyways...after that i went to my bank...now heres the thing...i only had $6 in my checking account (thats right ladies, i'm rich and single...i know you want this)...i had a subscription to ESPN magazine and i had cancelled it but they charged me anyways so that means i overdrew on my account...the bank charged me $33 in fees...so i had to get that straightened out...then i went looking for jobs
Damnit...why does my internet kick me off for no reason!!!!...dial up...who has dial up anymore? huh?...you know i actually called up this guy at Dell to fix my dads computer and he was trying to figure out this problem until i mentioned i had dial up and he's like "ohhh you have dial up? man i haven't messed with a computer that has dial up in quite a while now...i don't even have a modem in my computer"...greeeaaat...well its just like my parents...behind the times...i can't tell you how many times i feel like bashing the shit out of my computer because of the internet
I have a dream
Someday...and you mark my words...i will become rich and i'll go out and buy some $10,000 computer, take it out to a very large field, and beat the shit out of it with a bat...maybe i'll even shoot the thing with a shotgun...hell i'll take a few weapons...i day dream about this...you know that scene in office space? yep thats my dream...that movie is awesome for that scene alone
Procrastination...oh i'm damn good at it
I haven't registered for classes yet...need to get on that...whenever it cools down and my brain stops melting from the heat
Too hot...even for my DVD player
My DVD player stopped playing DVD's...i was watching a movie and it just stopped and refused to play anymore DVD's...it works just fine other than the fact that it won't play any DVD's...maybe its cuz of the heat...ah poor thing...i'm with yuh...too hot to do anything
On a better note...hmm...yeah i got nothin
I was going to make this longer but its too hot...this is all you get
