Yeah I definitely haven't updated this thing since January, I think it's time to give you all a little status update.

What's going on in Randy's world you say? Same. ole. shit. I work, I hit the gym, I come home and do my school work, I go to bed and then do it all over again. Let's get into some more detail tho shall we?

Work: We just finished end of year, which is the WORST fucking part of my entire year, every single year. It's about a 100 hour week, at least, sometimes peaking at 120. It's insanity, and now that I'm on salary I DON'T EVEN GET PAID FOR IT, FUCK!!!! But it's over, and I'm happy about that. Top management FINALLY agreed that we need more IT people and I'm now officially the IT Manager for all our US interests. I was basically the IT Manager all along, but it was 'never on the books'; however, now it is, and I'm happy about that. I work with a really awesome guy who is the IT Manager for our Canadian factory, lovin it.

Gym: I joined a gym almost exactly one month ago and I've been religious about going (other than the marathon that is 'End of Year' at work). I'm close to the best shape I've ever been in in my life (which isn't THAT impressive) and I'm feelin damn good about that. It's so strange, when I was really into excercising and eating right about 6 years ago it was so easy. I ran a mile and lifted lightly and I got slim in no time. Now that I'm 25 I find it so much harder than it was before. Muscle-wise I'm probably the strongest I've ever been, but I'm just not as 'slim' as I want to be. I don't want to be this big built dude, I just want to be slimmed and toned out, I'll get there, it's just weird that in 6 years it seems so much harder than it used to be. I'm only 25, it should still be easy, I guess being a computer nerd who sits on his ass all day kinda adds to the 'hard' factor, but I'll deal.

School: It's hard to imagine that I've been back in school for a year and a half, it seems just like yesterday that I joined and got back on track. I'm in an online program and that works out just perfect for me. I have work that's due Wednesday and the rest is due Saturday before 11:59pm, it really gives me the flexibility that I need with such a crazy schedule. It's hard work and very time consuming and it definitely takes dedication, every Saturday consists of anywhere from 3 to 6 hours of school work. However, in November 2008 I will have my degree in Management Information Systems, and with all the experience I've gained since my senior year in high school, I will be getting paaaaaid.

Home: Finally going home (D.C.) in a couple weeks. It feels like it's been forever since I've been home, even though it hasn't even been five months yet. When you're a big family guy and you're used to being surrounded by loved ones, five months is a long time. Anyway, I can't wait, it'll be nice to hold my little nephews and see how big they've gotten. Today I bought this specifically with my trip in mind, I can't wait to take some great pics, I'll be sure to post them.

Friends: Lookin forward to seeing a lot of you again. Derek, we must hang out soon. Preferably in Ft. Laudie with Chris and Liz, we shall recreate the magic that we all were apart of those many months ago. I can't say when it'll happen, but it must. And any of you other people out there that wanna meet me, let's make it happen sometime in this life.

Music: I'm still such a snob when it comes to music. I'm very picky and I only listen to a few bands religiously. Back in March I went to Orlando and met up with Derek to see a concert headlined by a band I'm currently obsessed with: Killswitch Engage. They are heavy with very melodic choruses. The history of the band is quite interesting and their former frontman has really moved me with some of the lyrics he has written. In fact, while I'm back home I'm thinking about getting my first tattoo, a lyrical masterpiece by Jesse Leach: "There is no darkness without light to teach us of ourselves". I've never been so moved by something somebody has written. My only problem is it's kinda long and I'm not sure how to get it inked, we'll see. Anyway, I don't know what was better, the concert or just hanging out with Derek, which is always so memorable (Randy: "Did you say your cars seats 4 and a bitch??" Derek: "Nooo, 4 is a tight fit!" Randy: "oooh").

Time to make another Crown and Coke and start some school work, leave some love! See you all again in December!
