I get to watch my favorite band in the world in concert on April 14th, Jack's Mannequin. They're a band from Orange County, California. Andrew McMahon (lead singer) he's a mad man on the piano. Absolutely amazing. I'm pumped to see them, I've seen them a number of times already. They're a up-and-coming band, they have a couple of videos that made it to MTV. Their most recent is "The Resolution." That's where I got the title to my revamped blog. Check them out on YouTube.
I'm a huge Cincinnati Bengals fan. I get on their web sit everyday and hope to find that they've picked up someone good on the offseason. Recently, that has been the case and things look to be positive. We have been known to have a few mishaps in the offseason and just today one of those came about. Leon Hall (safety) was picked up in Ohio for DUI. I mean, come on! After what happen to Dante Stallworth from the Browns (if you didn't know...He was drinking and driving and killed a 59 year old guy in Florida) You would think he would know better. All I really want is the Bengals to have a good season, at least make it to the playoffs. Every year I say this is going to be our break out season but I really do feel that way. Carson Palmer is back. Chad Ocho Cinco might be on his way to the Oakland Raiders. However, we did lose T.J. Houshyomomma but we are on a good path. I will always be a Bengals fan....WHO-DEY!
I'm also a big Lakers fan. Kobe Bryant is the man. I do like the Cavs and I'll have to say only because the King, LeBron James but who would like them if he wasn't on the team? Anyways, there both duking it out for the best team in the NBA but I don't think there fit to put up a fight with the L.A. Lakers.
Need a good laugh? play.
That's it. Have a great Easter weekend, if anyone is even paying attention. haha.

I was over at my school today and you could get 2 free OSU Spring game tickets. They started passing them out about 12:30. I got there about 5 minutes before and the line was forever long. Now, the tickets are only $5 BUT at the school you can get them for FREE and you get TWO. The game gets bigger and bigger each year. I've never been to a game and it'd be nice to go and see them up close. They are selling them again next Wednesday...maybe I'll have better luck next time around.
I have a teacher whose friend past away yesterday and I can relate to such a feeling. It's by all means tough. It's crazy how life works. A person who you may talk to every day, see every day is gone in an instant. It's hard to deal with especially when you've got a job to do. You have keep on going because you can't get behind. But the feeling doesn't go away for awhile and you can't stop thinking about those times with that person. I had a grandma pass away a couple of years ago: she didn't die from old or anything. She just past away. It just happened, but why? It's just mind boggleing. I hope all goes well for my teacher and that he knows that his friend is in a much better place now. Time heals all.
I'm ready for the weekend. I'm hoping that it is warm for Easter Sunday. I miss the family. We all use to be so close and things kind of seem like there falling a part. I won't be seeing my mom this weekend; it's hard to tell what's going on in her life right now. I'm just going to let it all play out and hope everything works for the best. There's nothing I can do about anything so why try to turn the tide. I've got my brother's and sometimes I think that is the most important because some people have no one at all. I've got to look at the things I have, not the things I don't. I pray that my mom can come to realize what she wants in life. My brother's and I have gotten real close to my step dad and it'd be weird not to have him around anymore. Things will be okay, I believe.
That's it for today, folks.

I've started my second week of Spring quarter and so far so good but what is tough about college is life's little problems that come with it. However, I can say that colllege is 20x better than high school but the real world sets in and it's much more hectic. Some kids may still live with their parents and by all means DO IT! Living on your own is tough; bills pyle up and there's always something that needs to be bought. Don't get me wrong it's great to be on your own and away from your parents. You can come and go as you please and do whatever it is you want. I just find it hard to go to college day in and day out, do my homework, keep the apartment in one piece, and keep the roommates from being a distraction from my work. Moreover, I have learned that with self-disapline and dedication I can do it all. Keep on keepin' on!
I've recently been through hell in back in the past couple of weeks. My mom and step dad are getting a divorce. Now I know that many, many kids go through this but this will be my second time around. For reasons unknown it's tough for me because when you think things are good, their usually not. My mom has been married to my step dad for 10 years or so and in my mind I thought they had a perfect marriage; till recently I've come to find out that things arn't so peachy keen. I have two older brother's who have known about my parents situation for about a month or so now and I've been left in the dark. So everything has come to hit me all at once. I'm not the type of guy who wears his emotions on his sleeve but this crap is just eating me alive. I just want things to be okay, really, that's it. But that's all fantasy, things will get harder before they get better. How many times have you heard that in your life? Seems like that goes for just about everything. I pray that things go well for the next couple of months. My brother's are my best friends and sometimes I think that they're the only family I've got left.
Alright, from the looks of things it looks like I wrote a novel. I probably won't get many people to read my blog but if all else fails I can write down my emotions instead of keeping them in. Plus, it helps me with my writing for English.
Inspirational quote of the day: Keep on keepin' on!

Blogs are good for a lot of reasons: One being that if you are not a person who speaks out loud and never gives an opinion then blogging works to your advantage. They’re your words and your thoughts. They’re no limits when it comes to blogging. If people like what you have to say they will read it and come back for more. You might even run into people who will criticize your thoughts but not everyone is going to like what you have to say.
The people who read blogs are the ones who probably love to write and read: People who have many things on their mind and love to give their opinion and beliefs. I can say that I read blogs because I am interested in what people what to say. I am an open-minded person and will listen to just about anyone’s thoughts. I know that when I write a post it’s like your thoughts are at the tip of your fingers and you can write about whatever it is you want. There are no restrictions; your mind and a keyboard. I feel that it can reach out to people. Many people in the internet world have a knack for blogging (Check out Truth Percieved for a great example). They’re so good at what they do that they have levels for how good your blog is.
I know from my experience that blogging has its cons: I will read just about anyone’s blog but one thing that turns me away from the very beginning is poor grammar. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t know it all but clear and concise writing will keep a reader going along. If you have misspelled words and a lot of slang you may not stick around for too long. Another con would be that anyone can comment on your blog; this may result in someone leaving a rude or negative comment. This could cause you to lose your since of confidence as a blogger.
To blog or not to blog, that is the question. There really isn’t any harm in blogging in my opinion. This blogosphere allows you to open your mind and speak your thoughts. It can’t be a great stress reliever: letting you just pour out your thoughts. Blogging to me has helped me practice my writing; the more I want to write about the more I will learn. I guess the most important thing about a blog is that it connects you with people around the world: whatever it is you’re blogging about, someone out there feels that same way. You can build many relationships with people that may become loyal to your blog and leave comments to you just about every day.
That’s all folks!
Enjoy the Spring – I know I will!

My role was kind of tough for me. I had to talk about a guy and his Christian faith. I’m not a church goer or acquainted well enough to know the bible. However, his posts were always interesting and worth reading. His blog was titled, Are We Living in the End of Times? Each week he would talk about how people believe that we are living in the end of times. There was always something that would make you think, “Wow, maybe we are.” I loved reading them because it seemed like a whole bunch of myths that actually had some comparison to what is going on in our world today. His blog was one of the one’s I would go to read first because I knew I could find it interesting and could learn about the Christian faith.
When it came time to write a post for Brandon the creator of Are We Living in the End of Times? I knew I could write a post similar to his writing technique. He makes little to no errors at all and the flow of his posts just seem to work well. The easiest part about writing a post for Brandon was he didn’t really ever do anything that would jump out at you or try to get your attention. He was very straightforward and never really put any of his opinions. So really all I had to do was be precise with my grammar and give the beliefs of what some people believe to be the end of times.
This is the final post for the class, however I do plan on continuing.

Well it’s Friday which is always a plus. I’m ready for the weekend but before I start my weekend off I’m going to tell you a little more about my favorite person Kalea. Her smile just lights up the room and when I’m with her I feel like no one else is around us. We have a special relationship that no one can come between. Every time I hang out with her I still get butterflies.
Kalea’s personality is like no one I’ve ever met before. We have so much fun when we are together and we never fight. We think so much alike and have the time we can finish each other’s sentences. We have so many great memories together and many many more to come. I would do anything for kalea and I know that she would do the same for me. It’s the best feeling to have someone you care about and know that they care about you to.
Well that all I have until next week!

His rant:Scientist Eye Debris after Satellite Collision: In the article it explains that a Russian and American satellites collided sending debris everywhere. Which could hurt other satellites, or even the Hubble Telescope. "Now I don't have much to say about this but "nice driving boys." We litter our planet now we have even started to pollute our space orbit. Now don't get me wrong i think space stuff is sweet shit, but I'm just saying as a race people very junkie. No sweet though I'm sure our kids will clean it up."- Things that piss me off

It was my sophomore year of high school and I had just got my license. After your freshmen year you kind of know what to expect what high school will be like: getting your license, going to parties, and dating girls. All of these happened in a flash for me. I recently had just started dating my best friend at this time and wanted to take her out for dinner and a movie, a typical thing to do for kids in high school. When I had got my license there was only one flaw to do this, I had a very crappy car. While being in high school I had it in my head that you just weren’t cool if you didn’t have a nice car. However, for me this wasn’t the case; I thought of myself as a pretty cool guy but didn’t have the cool car to go along with it.
It was the first date I went on with having my license. I wanted to impress her so much, I had butterfly’s in my stomach and was ready to be a complete gentlemen by; paying for dinner and movie, opening the door for her, telling her she looked pretty, all that Casa Nova kind of thing. But here we are, in my beat up ’94 Honda Accord, which was loaded with rust and had a hideous maroon color paint job. I apologized to her for having to be picked up in such a dreadful looking car. She replied saying “It’s not a big deal at all, we’ll have a good time and that’s all that matters.” It was simply things like that, that made me feel good about the date.
As were driving, were listening to music, talking about whatever, it was all just real comfortable because of how much alike we are and how we just click. When we arrived to our favorite restaurant Olive Garden, we couldn’t wait to satisfy our bellies with some good ol’ Italian food. After our delicious meal, we wanted to go catch a flick. When it came to picking out a movie and was like stealing candy from a baby; it was seriously so easy. We decided on a movie called “Failure to Launch”. She’s so easy to get along with and since we’re so much alike it made it that much easier to find something we both would enjoy.
Okay, so we’re leaving the movie and we come walking out and it’s pouring down rain; I mean it looked like a hurricane outside. Now remember my car should have been in a junk yard somewhere. We get in my car and I start it up and get ready to take off and I noticed that my windshield wipers won’t even work, and I am almost out of gas. At this point I thought to myself “this just cannot be happening to me. Things were going so well the whole night and something just had to come up. Now, this means I would have to sit there until it was safe to drive and leave the car on so she wouldn’t be cold. What was most important to me was that I wanted to impress her so much and wanted her to think I had everything in control. This obviously wasn’t the case and she could tell that I was very upset by me not even saying a word to her and looking away thinking in my head how bad this sucks. She then said me, “You don’t have to try so hard to have everything go the way I want them to.” Now this is where she just made me love her for who she is, she always knows exactly what to say. “I don’t care about what kind of car you drive or how much money you have, I like you for you, and what we have as a couple. After hearing her say this to me, made me completely fall in love with her.
There are many reasons why I believe this girl is my soul mate but that specific story is one I will always remember. It’s hard to tell people how a feel about such a person like her. She makes everything feel just right. I couldn’t ask for a better friend in this world. Whether we end up together down the road or not, I know she will always be a part of my life.

Now, I didn’t plan on spending a lot of money on a dog but I did and now that I have him, I don’t think we would ever give him up. We put quite some time into looking for a dog and luckily enough we talked to a friend of ours at school and his mother is a Yorkie breeder (the dog she just HAD to have).
When went to go check out the puppies the breeder had to offer, as soon as we walked in Kalea just lit up; she seriously fell in love at first sight. She had spotted out the dog she had wanted. I then knew that soon my wallet would have a huge dent in it. (haha). It’s alright though; you can’t put a price on love.
People always ask, “What happens if you guys break up, who gets the dog?” To me it was a present for her, I would be an A*Hole if I decide “hey, you’re not keeping it”. I’m not like that. So it would for sure be hers.
Thanks for reading.
You stay classy bloggers

Alright, Let me tell you about a time when Kalea and I first started talking (you know, just being a little bit more than friends.) Well there was a problem with us dating. I grew up with two older brothers who partied all the time, we lived with my dad who was hardly ever home and my brother’s would throw parties all the time. I kind of became costumed to that lifestyle and then it kind of made an image of me that didn’t go through well with parents. I didn’t really care about school, hated waking up early, and just had no motivation to do well. So, since her parents weren’t going to allow us being together…We did what most all teenagers have done. I snuck her out. I would say this is the most thrilling thing to do. You pull up, turn the radio off, and kill the lights. Kalea and I would seriously have the time of our lives; we’d just go back to my house and watch a movie or watch MTV. We’d get so tired because when I’d sneak her out it would have to be pretty late. We’d get to the point where we would be slap-happy and everything on the TV would become funny even if it wasn’t. Those are the things that made it memorable. We did this almost every weekend, we became so good at and eventually seemed like we were mission impossible experts. Although it was worth it and I wouldn’t change anything we did…All good things must come to an end. Guess what happen next? WE GOT CAUGHT! We were no longer the stuntmen we thought we were. We lost track of time and her dad had to go to work the next day and I needed to get her back before her dad would notice she wasn’t in her bed. I will remember this moment for the rest of my life. We were pulling up to where I would drop her off and as I killed the lights we were looking from her road at her house and noticed each light in each room come on. It was her parents looking for her up stairs where her bedroom was. At this moment my stomach dropped all the way to my pinky toe. I felt so bad for her because I knew she was going to be in a TON of trouble. We both looked at each other in disbelief, and didn’t know what to do next. We decided that we should just face the music. I guess I shouldn’t say we because I just dropped her off and went home but they would soon come to find out I was the guy who picked up their daughter in the middle of the night. I didn’t hear from her until that Monday at school because she wasn’t going to have any way of getting a hold of me.
The conclusion of this story is that we fought to hang out with each other even when we weren’t allowed. We were going to make sure we got to see each other and that’s exactly what we did. Furthermore, Kalea fought with her parent’s day in and day out saying that she was going to find a way to hang out with me and there was nothing they could do about it. This wasn’t the case because they had all the power in the world over her. Finally, her parents gave me a CHANCE. They decided that maybe if they got to know me then they would rather have her inside the house safe then out with a boy. From that point on we were together for 3 plus years and were the best days of my life.

Kalea to me is one of the most unique people I have ever met. She tries to be like nobody but herself. I’ve never met someone with so much confidence then her. Kalea is very intelligent and there’s nothing better than a girl with some smarts. She is the biggest brat in the whole world; I can’t even begin to tell you how much. You can call me crazy but it is seriously one of the things I love about her. The thing with her is, I want to do anything and everything for her and she knows it and probably knows that since I like that she’s a brat then she will get what she wants. Now I don’t want you to think she takes advantage of it because she is very appreciative. Next, she has the best sense of style, in my opinion anyways. She just wants to be herself and have her own sense of style. Kalea and I went to the same high school and graduated together in 2008. She cheered for basketball, football, and competition. She wants to be a Psychologist or a doctor of some sort (Told ya she was smart). She’s a girl who knows what she wants and I can only be thankful for that. I say this because being a guy; you don’t always have the answers. I know for a fact that most guys feel me on that (haha). She’s a good girl, loves her momma, loves Jesus and America too. She’s a good girl, crazy about Elvis, loves horses and her boyfriend too. Although, this is a Tom Petty song “Free Fallin”, every one of those things is true.
All in all, Kalea is a well-rounded girl and not figuratively speaking, because that would be rude (haha). Anyways, she’s a very understanding person, a great listener, and a great person. Even if I weren’t to end up with her down the road (which I hope doesn’t happen), I just wish for her to be completely happy.

What’s a soul mate you might be thinking? To me well, it's like a best friend, but more. It's the one person in the world that knows you better than anyone else. It's someone who makes you a better person. Actually, they don't make you a better person, you do that yourself because they inspire you. A soul mate is someone who you carry with you forever. It's the one person who knew you and accepted you and believed in you before anyone else did or when no one else would. And no matter what happens, you'll always love her. Nothing can ever change that. Make sense?
In the month of October in Circleville we have a festival called the Pumpkin Show. I’ve went to this festival since I was in a baby carriage. I finally got to the age where I could run around and be on my own with my friends. I bet you can probably guess who I ran around with. Kalea and I hold this festival near and dear to our hearts. It’s something we’ve always been psyched for when it came to October. The Pumpkin Show was downtown and all the streets got closed and rides went up. Carney stands were on each road and food was everywhere you went. I find it that every year I go into the Pumpkin Show, everything reminds me of her. The way the cold smells of October run through the air, the fried foods that make everyone salivate, and that sense of childlike wonder you have when you ride rides. She has that much of an effect on me. All of those thoughts and feelings were us being great friends. We were never elementary boyfriend and girlfriend or middle school boyfriend and girlfriend just friends. Then came high school and it was Pumpkin Show time. We had just got into our sophomore year of high school and we had gotten closer then we ever had. Then that’s when it got serious, as corny as this is, I asked her out on a ride called the “Zipper”, our ride had stopped at the very top and I asked to be my girlfriend, yeah, a real Casa Nova huh? But that’s where it started. A place we both felt like kids and we shared a sense of who we were with each other.
Next blog, I plan to give you a better sense of who Kalea is.
Temperatures are cold, roads may still be bad…everyone be safe and have a great weekend!

Hey folks! My name is Fitz and I am a firm believer of having or finding a soul mate. I know at this time in my life that this may just seem like puppy love or some person who is in my life and in a couple of months this person will be a stranger. Over the course of this quarter I will be blogging about a special person in my life. I have known this girl since I was a little tyke. She knows me inside and out and I believe she is my soul mate. Things to come this quarter will be the past and the present of her and I, why I believe in finding that one person, and do others believe in finding a soul mate. I am only 19 years old and not the type of person who wear my heart on my sleeve, so this is an outlet for me and hopefully some might find some interest of what I am writing about. I can assure you that this blog won’t be about what is going on with this certain person and I every day of my life. It’s more of the history of her and I what a true soul mate is to me. If anybody knows what it’s like to have a person who just gets you and knows exactly what you’re thinking and how you’re feeling, then this blog will be interesting for you and may be able to relate to. If my guy friends were to know that I was writing a blog about my personal feelings and about a certain girl, they would probably be very interested! I do not talk about my feelings or what I am thinking, I truly only talk to the girl that knows me the best. I just don’t like to involve people in my personal life. I feel I don’t need any advice and that I will only do what is in my head or what I feel is right. Anyways, this won’t be just a soppy love story, it’s real and I hope I can grab some readers.
