Journal Entry – 12.3.1999

Well today was a very boring day.  I got up and went to French class then went home to fix a decoration for mom.  Then I spent the rest of the day reading the paper, reading my book, playing on the computer and watching T.V.  I just had no motivation to do anything. 

The quarter has finally come to an end. I’m a bit disappointing myself because I let my grades slide towards the end.  I just couldn’t keep the motivation that I started out with.  I still have the option to take the finals but they are cumulative and would involve a ton of studying. 

Ok, first things first.  This quarter sucked.  Actually I ended up going to lunch with ____ quite a bit but I think I lost my crush.  I just don’t have the same feelings that I started out with.  She finally did break up with her boyfriend.  However, that was a boyfriend of three years and she needs some time to be single.  I’m not in love with her anymore.  Funny how I had the biggest crush on her and it just went away.  I do think I’ve figured out how to keep me from going insane though.  I need to get involved with more stuff to keep the boredom away.  I feel alone so much and all my friends have gone on with their lives and I’m kind of stuck in limbo. 

I hate being here and cannot wait to go to France.  I’ve been doing some networking and will continue when I finally get a break after this quarter.  I plan on writing a bunch of companies and getting my name in the door.  I really cannot wait until I learn French and can go on with my life.  I hate being here all by myself all the time and not really progressing with my life except for schoolwork.  I did have an interview with the Ohio Department of Internatial Trade for an internship and hope I get it.  The chances could be slim though because there are other applicants.  It would look good on my resume and also give me something to do.  When I have too much free time I end up wasting more time than if I was busy.  I feel like I accomplish so much more when I am busy.

Journal Entry – 9.30.1999

All is well in my life.  Actually things are a bit hectic.  I’m really trying hard to learn French and hope to get the pronuciation down soon.  I’ve also been sending out resumes for possible internships.  I would love to get one in either France or Spain.  I’m also pretty excited because I was invited to a luncheon with President Kirwin this coming Saturday.  I was “highly recommended” by Grace Johnson for the study abroad students.  There will be ten study abroad students and ten international students at the luncheon.  Now I have a chance to shmooze with some big shots then go to the game.  That is a good thing.   Classes are ok this quarter.  I’m not sure if I will like the spanish one because it is about Syntax but the professor is from Madrid and is funny which makes him cool.  The subject matter is not so fun though.  I do really like French and am excited about learning it.  I will be going to France next summer to try and really learn the language after I take a few classes this year.  I also have a business law class which is interesting and the professor is really good.  By Business management class is about stats which is no fun.  The professor is great though. 

  Tonight should be pretty exciting because I am going to the RedZone with friends for Latin night.  I love them latins.  Well that is about all that is going on in my life right now.  I’m working at the Ohio Union again but it has gotten harder as for as the setups go and that is not too fun.

Journal Entry – 9.12.1999

Well life has been pretty boring since I’ve been back.  All I’ve been doing is getting stuff done that I’ve put off forever. I did however make a big decision.  This coming fall I am going to learn French and then go to France this summer.  I am really glad I have the opportunity to learn another language.  I can’t wait to get back to Europe and continue my journey to fame and fortune.  I really love Europe and am blessed to have this opportunity.  I really can’t wait for school to start because life is so boring now.  All I do is work out, write e-mails and loaf around.

I still haven’t heard from Tory and am not really worried about it.  I don’t know what happened with her.  I was pretty fed up with her going out with her guy friends then spending the night at their houses.  She probably spent the night too much with them and her mom probably got on her case.  That is why she was probably upset with me when I was in Mexico even though I didn’t do anything wrong.  No big deal though.  I really do want to marry the perfect girl hopefully from Europe or some Latin country.  I really want a girl who challenges my intelligence yet can’t live without me.  Tory was very independent and would never compromise.  I do believe in destiny and I think it was just not meant to be.  That is ok with me.  I have too much going for me now and have a goal and nothing will stop me from attaining it.  I am so blessed to have seen the world and I don’t want to stop any time soon.  I really can’t wait to learn French.  Then I will be tri-lingual and will feel really good about myself.

I really miss Spain still and all the friends and times that I had there.  It is like a dream now.  I’m also glad that I got letters sent out to my Spanish mom and Carmen.  It is good to have friends in other countries.  I do really miss Carmen still.  She was such a great girl and I shouldn’t have screwed things up.  Hopefully things will work out though and I will be happy.  I can’t wait to make the trip back to Europe.  Well I don’t have much to write about now because life is pretty darn boring.

Journal Entry – 6.25.1999

All is well with the world.  I got my grades and I got a B+ in Spanish a B in International Business and a C- in Business Management.  I’m not too happy about the Stats but it could’ve been worse.  Tory and I are getting along great.  I think it’s due to the fact that she doesn’t go out anymore and I am going to Mexico.  Now it is my turn to go have fun and let her worry about me.  I really can’t wait to go and speak Spanish again.  I love that culture and really miss Spain. Spain was the best time of my life and I will never forget it again.  I’m looking forward to the opportunity to show off my Spanish and mingle among the locals at the bars.  There are only a few people that speak Spanish in the group so I should have plenty of opportunity.  Life has been pretty slow though lately.  I really don’t have much to do and am trying to get all the stuff I’ve put on the back burner done.  Tomorrow I have to get a haircut, go to the bank, send Tory her book and tape, buy my mom a scanner and go golfing with Ross.  It’s not a rough life.  I would also like to send my Spanish mom and Carmen a letter.  It looks like I will get that done Saturday though.  So like I said, life is good and I really can’t complain.. Viva España!!!

Journal Entry – 4.2.1999

Well Tory did end up calling and everything is well.  In fact she is on her way over.  I had a good week at school and working out and I feel great.  I’m excited about going out tonight.  If you go out too much it becomes a job and isn’t that fun.  But I’ve been a good boy all week and am so ready for some fun.  We had a good week of weather and it looks like spring is finally here.  I really love good weather, it just puts me in a great mood.  Life is wonderful.
