The city that never sleeps, except when you are drunk. [10 Oct 2005|02:36pm]
[ mood | prote in the Big Apple ]

Fall break update.

Been a fucking perfect fall break. The best combo of fun and chillaxing.

Highlights:
-Finding "The Beast's little brother" in one of the million piece shops we looked in.
-Finally getting the lip pierced
-Sushi and Saki with the Aunt and Uncle
-Hookah and Kettle Red Bulls at "The Casbah"
-Mae and Circa Survive at the coolest venue
-The drunk subway extravaganza
-Not having hours of work to do

I really miss school though. I always catch myself saying "home" and "my own bed" when I mean school. It's like Garden State, and I've created that new idea of home for myself... weird.

Does that mean I'm growing up?

R.I.P. "The Zone" [27 Sep 2005|03:07pm]
[ mood | melancholy ]

The loss of a good spot is always a tragedy. After all, what beats a spot you don't even have to go outside to get too?

Up until this year, there was a small cafeteria in my dorm. Right next to the entrance to the kitchen was the entrance to a small inclosed deck designated for the kitchen staff smoking breaks. This year neither the kitchen nor the room leading to it is being used. So in our initial exploring we discovered what we now call "The Zone". No one knew it was there, it was surrounded by trees, and there was a huge fan blowing air straight up. It was our first spot and a legit one. Many an L rolled by Jimmy, joint rolled by Andi, bowl packed by me, and hookah packed by Ben were smoked there, and we loved it.

Well today I was awoken by the sound of a chainsaw and falling trees. I look outside only to find that the trees surrounding the "Kitchen Staff smoking deck" are all gone, and now the inside can easily be seen by anyone walking by.

Some of my fondest friends and memories were made in the Zone, and now it is gone. This isn't the loss of any old spot, this is the loss of my first spot of the next 4 years of my life.

I have to look at this optimistically though. Who knows? This might only lead to bigger and better things.

"Come on Ref, our 275 pound goalie just slide tackled a girl, you have to let that one go. [23 Sep 2005|01:38pm]
[ mood | still a little baked ]

O geesh,

Just chilling out on a friday after classes. I had 2 exams yesterday so this week has been a little rough.

Everything is great though. It's still weird that this is going to be my life for the next 4 years. I know I keep saying that, it just isn't fair that I get to have this much fun all the time. It's like even the class I have the most work in, I look forward to going to.

I've talked to Ian and Andrew recently and they both seem super satisfied with their choices too. That's good to know.

Last night was the highest I have ever been, it was ridiculous. I don't need to be like that again. Well maybe I do, just not, well ya I do need to be that high again.

Hope everyone is doing well, and that high school is fun. hahaha.

Take care.

Call me Leaner McLeanson [18 Sep 2005|10:45pm]
[ mood | prote ]

Been a crazy week. Between work work work and more work I've managed to have some fun.

I've eaten 2 larges from Papa Johns this weekend, so good.

Today RHA sponsored a "root beer kegger" and we got to play pong against our RA's. It was actually a good time. I've been playing to much of that game lately.

Number of cases of Rolling Rock destroyed since I've been here: 5

I met this kid from Philly who was wearing a fear before shirt. He was a cool kid even though he made fun of me for wearing a Piebald shirt. Now I have someone to go to shows with, so that is for sure a plus.

I fell in love with this steamroller at the hed shop in town. I just don't know if it's worth the $60 bucks. It's so sick though.

I'm buying a ring in the next week and my lip will be pierced.

I haven't talked to one Canyon kid since I moved. WT Fuck?????

Well I have to finish some fucking work, but everyone have a nice week and take care.

Paul I'm sorry about that call last night. will do better next time.

There are no Penguins in Alaska [05 Sep 2005|05:02pm]
[ mood | prote ]

Wow, I guess I'm just in the routine of things now. When I sat down to write an entry, everything just seemed like shit that would happen in a regular day. There isn't anything wrong with that, it's just how my life is now. I can't complain.

It's fucking awesome how close you get to people though. I'm already so tight with so many people, and it's been what, 3 weeks? Everyone is so different but so chill.

I'm drunk way to much though. Saturday was our first football game, so we started drinking at like 5. I guess I can't complain about that either.

My Ethics class is so tight. I enjoy it way more than I do calculus or physics, but once I actually get into engineering projects and shit I know it will be better.

Who ever invented the no hallcest rule was so right. It only leads to drama.

Buy the new Chiodos album it will blow your mind.

I got my lip pierced. Well tried to. The girl that did it for me didn't have a ring big enough, so when she put it in it just smashed my lip together. I have jewelry in the mail though so I'll put pics up when it actually happens.

I have started to miss home a little bit. Keep the fucked up phone calls coming, they make me laugh.

love,
Eddie

Everyday is Cigarette Christmas [26 Aug 2005|04:17pm]
[ mood | prote ]

Well it's Friday and I just got done with classes. I've for sure had work to do, but it's so much different than working in highschool and I really don't mind it as much.
Calculus II is gonna be tough but my Prof is this funny older guy from Wales who has a super cool way of teaching
Physics work is almost all done in groups and everyone is so smart and chill that work gets done pretty quickly.
Engineering 100 is fun and independent and Intro to Ethics is alot of reading but its just discussing ethical theories and I do that anyways.

We found our super secret place to study I just hope it stays that way.

We found our super secret place to smoke to and I really hope that stays that way.

It's Friday and we are drinking tequila and eating Mexican food...

I got drunk and tried to write this paper for this class "Alcohol and the Bucknell Experience." Needless to say, I'm gonna have to rewrite it.

Peace out late,
Eddie

Well Orientation is over and classes are starting tomorrow. I was nervous at first but now I'm so psyched. My schedule worked out well, I got all the classes I wanted and I only have 1 8 am class. I've gotten to know a bunch of the engineers and they are all super cool kids, smart as hell, but cool kids.

So ya everything is good. I'm doing my best to stay in touch but it's tough, especially with how busy I've been.

Love you all, peace out late...

Polo Shirts and High Humidity (My first day at Bucknell) [20 Aug 2005|01:09pm]
[ mood | prote at Bucknell ]

So I moved in yesterday. My triple is huge and my roomates are chill. My space already looks like my space and I fucking love it. We did the hole introduction getting to know people with our halls and everyone on my hall is tight.

Turns out the girls in the triple next to me all smoke so the party got started immediately. Then a couple of guys from my hall and i went over to another freshman dorm and tried to get a game of pong started. We had goods, cups, girls, a table (well a closet door and chairs), and went knocking on the doors of people in the huge quads to see if we could party in their room. We got rolled pretty quick though by an RA. "Hey there are way to many people in here, and whats with the door".

To funny.

So we were all hanging out in the hall, and these drunk upper classmen come up to us and say "Now is when your real orientation starts." Everyone thought it was shaddy except for my friend Meg and I, so we rolled down to this house. The next thing I know I'm holding a beer and this guy makes a drunk party announcement introducing me as a freshman and makes me race him a couple of beers. It was fucking so much fun.

Turns out the same party is happening again tonight, so I'm ok with that.

Well now I have to go get ready for this game involving 950 kids and 2 tons of washable paint... I'm ok with that too.

Hope all is well at home.

I'm out.

Kept alive with the glory of love... [16 Aug 2005|02:05am]
[ mood | prote ]

It is 2 am on August 16th, which means I move to PA tomorrow. It seems like up until now August 17th was just a date in the future when I would have said by to everyone and would have my shit packed. But up until now I had no idea what that would feel like. Well it is here now, and I still don't know how to feel. It's impossible not to feel the same joy I always feel spending time with the people I care about the most. And it's impossible not to feel skeptical about the fact that I won't see these people again for months. And it's hard to not feel regret about somethings I did or didn't do these past couple years.

But overall, I think I spent my teenage years in sunny California the way they should be spent, and I can rest easy with that.

Best of luck to all and take care of yourselves. I'll be seeing you.

Eddie.

Ha Ha Ha Show me what you got... [03 Aug 2005|12:03pm]
[ mood | prote ]

So I guess I'm updating. I know, it's a suprise to me too.

I think the reason I haven't updated since the first week of summer is because not that much has changed. I'm still having the best fucking time I've ever had.

10 things I've learned these past few weeks...

1. If you have the opportunity to drive to San Diego and see The Fall of Troy, do it.
2. Stay away from the crazy lady at Carl's. I still don't know what her deal is.
3. Take advantage of your 18th birthday the way Paul did.
4. It is impossible to not buy a stripper a drink.
5. Always let Ian make you a nuttery bipple, I mean bippery nuttle, I mean... drink this.
6. No matter what society tells you, you can never eat enough fast food.
7. Kevin is the man to go to for cheese burgers.
8. An all night mish to Lee's Sandwiches can take alot out of you.
9. Lauren is more or less the most amazing girl I know.
10. Saying good-bye to your best friends a month early sucks balls.

14 of the most bitter sweet days left and counting...

Man this has been an awesome weekend. Wait it's Thursday. [18 Jun 2005|03:10pm]
[ mood | prote ]

You know what the awesome part about this entry is? Well it is the first update of the summer for me. Also I am doing it on my new Apple Powerbook G4 laptop, and I love it.

So I guess I'm a high school grad now. It's pretty tight I guess. Grad night was a perfect way to end highschool. So was Abbster's house last night. I have Paul's v-card and there is no way he is getting it back.

I am a terrible influence. It's chill though. I don't mind though. I still have my shit together.

Fucking Montreat in less than a week. I'm psyched as psyched can be. Me and Jay are rooming together and you all know what that means, sex... lots of it. It's gonna be good though. I got some stuff I need to work out and I know this trip will help for sure.

I miss Michael already and it's only Saturday. I love you dude.

Christa is pretty and I like her.

We need to begin planning a beach trip ASAP. You all know what I mean... BPC part deux.

Peace out late,
Eddie

The futile... [08 May 2005|06:39pm]
[ mood | prote ]

So I've decided to update.

Not alot has changed as of late. I've just been sitting around the fireplace and watching Top Gun II more.

And talking to Christa. I'm so psyched for prom. We don't have plans or anything yet, which we probably should. It's chill though. I know it's going to be a blast no matter what happens.

Paul and I are doing Mr. Aztec. That's gonna be chill to. What should our talent be?

My AP tests are over so basicly my school is over. Weird.

Mike and I had a really nice swing yesterday. It had been way to long since we swang. Now I remember why we used to do it so much.

I've been writing alot lately too. Maybe I should make a journal with all my writings in it.

New Found Glory... amazing.

always,

Home is... [06 Apr 2005|02:30pm]
[ mood | prote ]

So I'm back from Mexico. I'm not sure where to start though.

I miss it like crazy, so I guess I'll start there. It always makes me laugh how when I'm in a tiny cube of a room with tile floors, one broken window, and five other smelly guys in sleeping bags I would kill for a hot shower and clean sheets. But the second I get home I would kill to go back. It is an impossible feeling to describe, unless you have experienced it yourself.

I want to go back there. Mexico is a place where my faith means something. It is a place where I know almost everyone better then the back of my hand. It is a place where I put my entire heart into prayer and know that it will be effective, because my doubts don't seem important anymore, and because I don't have to face the criticism and selfishness of 'The OC.'

God is alive in Mexico. You can see Him in the dirt streets, the smiles of still innocent children and the eyes of every deserving family we build a house for.

Now that I'm back, I know it is my duty as a disciple of Christ to lead by example, and try to live my Christian faith outwardly so anyone who wants to can see. It just seems so impossible at "home."

That and I would kill for a taco and a Mexican Coke.

always,
Eddie

P.S. Since my idol Mitch Hedberg recently passed, I will put one of his jokes in each of my entries.

"People associate long hair with drug use. I wish people associated long hair with something other than drug use, like an extreme longing for cake. And then strangers would see a long haired guy and say, "That guy eats cake!" "He is on bundt cake!" Mothers saying to their daughters, "Don't bring that cake eater over here anymore. He smells like flour. Did you see how excited he got when he found out your birthday was fast approaching?"

Your best friends are just the people you get sick of the slowest. [30 Mar 2005|11:15am]
[ mood | prote and a half ]

This spring break has been exemplary of what I want this summer to be like. Well most of it.

A wise man once said "It hurts to always have to be honest with the ones that you love."

He was so damn right.

But other than cynical morning after responses, I've had the best time these past few days. It's all been a blur and an episode straight out of the OC. The old OC, back when it didn't suck.

I'm obsessed with Say Anything. I think our summer anthem album came a little early this year.

Peace out, late dawg,

"Did some one say crimes against humanity?????" [14 Mar 2005|06:17pm]
[ mood | prote ]

Let me update you on my weekend...

Speech and Debate.

That is about it.

On the bright side it was Orange County Championships, and I took 3rd place in National Extemporaneous speaking. I'm ok with being ranked 3rd in Orange County. Plus I qualified for State Championships at CSU Northridge next month, and I got a trophy bigger then Mike's penis (at least thats what he said). So thats cool. Almost our entire team qualified so thats awesome too.

Missed the parties though. That isn't so cool, but whatever. There will be more of those. I did get to hang out with Shaaaarelle all day Saturday, and Andrew and I had lumch on Sunday.

Sadies is this friday, so thats chill. We are going as rollerbladers and the back of our shirts will read "That's how we role." So thats tight. Hopefully we will have as much fun with the ASB kids as we did last time.

The entire click needs to hang out again soon. I feel like I'm missing out.

March 24th will be my final show with Saving April, ever, thats it. Fuck. That sucks. I'm going to miss those boys and that band.

To end on a happy note, Bucknell made the NCAA tournament. They are 13th seed and play 3rd seeded Kansas thursday. I think they are gonna be the sleepers of the tournament. Watch Bucknell make the Final Four. You just watch.

Long time no update

Well Canyon's WF was pretty fun. Kyleen is a kick ass date. It was good to see some old faces and Karissa's ass 2382805 times because her dress was so short. Gross.com

I missed Saving April practice this week because of debate. I'm so worn out on it. I don't even want to qualify for state that much. It'll just be another tournament and another weekend I don't get to spend here. I don't have that much time left.

I get more excited for college every day. Now everyone is finding out about UCs and some other schools, and I'm psyched for them too. It's nice not having the stress everyone else has right now.

Speaking of stress, I have none right now. I don't do shit and I love it. This year must be like every other year for most people. It rules.

Plus I get to spend more time with Shaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarell (Cherelle) which fucking rules. I'm psyched for Sadies.

Mexico is coming up soon. Man I love Mexico.

He is Legend and Classic Case Saturday. Who's coming?

[ mood | prote ]

So I was at UC Berkeley all weekend for a debate tournament all weekend. I got owned as far as my speech went. Oh well. That isn't the real reason I went.

I love the seniors on our team. We have way to much fun together for how different we all are. I don't know if it was Andrew waking up Kim at 2 AM in nothing but his boxers and baby oil or having people interupt Cheeeeeerelle and me CONSTANTLY that made me laugh the hardest. Or maybe it was one of the other 9765 things we did that made the trip so awesome.

...Once upon a time the guys on the EHS debate team were playing poker, smoking cigars, and watching soft-core on HBO. Elias has a tendency to not pay attention to the game, but to watch whatever is on T.V.
"Ok Hooman is lttle blind is Elias big?" Eddie said.
"Well he was until "Erotic Confessions" ended " Josh answered.
We all laughed and Elias threw one of his 9765 tissy fits of the weekend...

I ate a Fudrucker's 1 pound burger. Then I took a crap so big my pants fit better.

You ever have one of those nights that is so awesome that the second it gets over you miss it like crazy? Well I miss sitting next to her for 9 hours.

Hey Kyleen are you ever gonna ask me to Winter Formal???????????

I'm tired of lighting the damn fuse and running [15 Feb 2005|05:19pm]
[ mood | prote ]

This weekend ruled. You can basically read Mike's entry since we spent every waking moment together except for Friday.

I was lucky enough to hang out with Cherelle a bunch. I'll have to ask Outkast whats cooler than being ice cold, because that is the word I would use to describe her. She's beautiful and she gave me chocolate covered strawberries for Valetine's Day. She's a keeper.

If Kyleen ever askes me Canyon's WF I will go to that. It'll be fun to spend time with those kids again. I love and miss Karissa and Kyleen a bunch. It's my own fault though.

Debate tourny at Berkeley this weekend.com. It will be a blast.com. I'll get my shit ruined debating, but the amount of fun I will have will more than compensate for that.com. I have to miss a UCI party though.com :(.com

I now own every Small Brown Bike album. Fuck I miss them.

At church on Sunday our minister gave this sermen about how Lent is a time of self-denial, and not eating chocolate for a few weeks isn't denying one's self. Word to that.

Shows I have tickets for:
-A New Found Glory
-Hopesfall/ Underoath/Chariot /Fear Before the March of Flames

Shows I need tickets for:
-He is Legend/ Classic Case
-These Arms Are Snakes
