Cruise + others

Interesting to say the least.

Sometimes, my eyes seem opened a bit, before I wonder at the intricacies of how we even survive.

The cruise was, unfortunately, a disaster. A boat booked for 600 people. Only 40 showed up. It covered maybe like 10% of the cost, which is huge. Tried to make it up to the guy by buying him a few drinks. However, that was the idea with the rest of the people. This did not go well.

A couple of us stood by him, while he puked his guts out. In the end, he was shipped home. Before that, we were trying to get him to the hotel. We were moving him 1m/minute, because he would be lifted a couple of meters, before he was set down and he would lay unmoving for like 4-5 minutes.

Then, somehow, a fight started out. Supposedly, one of the girls danced with one guy there, and the bf was becoming pissy. Now, I'm not saying that what he was doing is right, but dancing with consent requires two people, and the girl was enjoying it plus letting him dance with her. PLUS, they didn't even know if it was that guy that was dancing with her. It was 'a guy in a black shirt'. There was 5 such people. However, with testosterone being what it is, guys fight over stuff like this.

Somehow, it devolved to 'who was he with', and starting up shit by calling guys. Don't think it ever got that far. However, a fight did break out and they were trying to stop it. Honestly, I don't care who's at fault. If it was something more serious, sure. But dancing? Over-protectiveness.

That is not what I normally see.

And yet Dorothy tells me it's always dramatic like this. Jo tries to smooth things out and tell Eugene to basically go and leave. It was safer for him and Jo didn't want to clean up a fight.

I did meet with a lot of people that I haven't seen in a while. Some of them do remember me. Surprise surprise. Was cool. I was downstairs, chatting with the staff. It was interesting because the help are the people that knows what goes on. The bartender was Dennis, who knows Dorothy and Terry. Putting himself through business at Ryerson, and doing bartending jobs. That's crazy. I don't think I could have done school + work in the same semester. I probably could, but I was pretty lazy. Learned a few things from him.

Several new drinks:
Killer Koolaid: Amaretto + melon liqueur + vodka + cranberry juice. Melon liqueur gets drowned out by the cranberry juice and is a nice accent. Tastes like koolaid, sort of how Long Island Iced teas taste like ice teas.

Snakebite: JD + Tequila. Apparently harsh. Jo did a shot with me and he kind of just grimaced after it. I didn't really mind it. I really think I can handle the bitters a lot better than most people.

Sex on the beach: I did know what this is, but I never actually saw it made. It seems quite simple, although I think it could be improved a bit. But I don't drink stuff like it, so it doesn't matter to me!

JD: I never drank JD before, but its not actually that bad straight.

Polar Bear: also knew of this before, but now I remember the ingredients.

P0rn Star: Tells me that this is the drink to order for the ladies. It's half raspberry liqueur and half orange liqueur. Basically half Blue Curacao liqueur and half Sourpuss.

Pretty cool guy. Talks with an Australian accent, where he's from. An Asian guy with an Australian accent. Got to be a hit for the ladies. Ha. Actually reminds me of the guy from the Two True stories from Wongfu videos.

Anyways, with Terry (I can only think of him as Terrence) driven home, us remaining six went to join the afterparty with Lucas. Didn't really do much, but it did mean that some of us had a place to crash and leave somebody apparently they don't like behind. Dorothy, Joe and I got a ride home, which was good, because Joe was a bit too tired/drunk that he was holding on to Dorothy pretty tight. Supposedly the person they were leaving was a petty thief, so... yeah, I think they'll cut her off soon. Did learn that Dorothy is the third finalist for Miss Asia? and she's planning to go to law school after she takes one more year? Looking that good and smart? Respect.

Anyways, eye-opener for me. Not many of my friends do this sort of stuff besides Terry, so it kind of makes me interested. I'd say for me, I've been Drama free since 93, but I think its even before then. The boat ride was awesome though.

I should go sleep. It is 6 in the morning. I'll post more if I remember stuff. And I think these people have inspired me a bit to get cracking on the GMATs. I'll have to do it soon. Read it after I finish reading Kitchen Confidential.

So stressed...

Let see,

Stress at work: phenomenal. There's too much to do in 3 different directions. This is insane right now.

Stress at family: too much stuff to manage. Just too much stuff I have to 'fix'.

Stress at home: Got to clean up shit, and just plain old do chores. Which so far isn't happening.

Stress at school: Need to study for GMAT.

Stress at society: Need to plan. Nothing is really working since apparently, I didn't make a strong first impression. Ugh. Sometimes, I'm so smart, I'm stupid. Sometimes I also wish it works the other way around.

Stress at shopping: can't go down to the US at all.

To conclude: I am at a 95% stress level right now, which is more than I have ever been. I can't even take an apathy chill pill. I care too much for all these subjects at this point. UGH!

I think I need to either wind down, or drop some stuff.

My new motto: stop thinking so much.

Too lazy and passive to do anything

I just sat and played FF12 for pretty much 10 hours straight.

Didn't have the motivation to clean up the house or do laundry.

I don't know why, since if I really focused on it, it would have taken me maybe 3 hours?

Maybe I'm just that unsuitable towards housework?

I don't know what's going on. Maybe it's a positive response, maybe it's a negative response. I suck at analyzing situations about myself. I'm hoping towards a positive, but who knows. The future is not ours to see, que sera, sera.

People grow up

I guess things do change.

Still don't know what it is I should do now. Sigh.

Haven't updated for a while.

So. Went rafting. Was fun. Pictures are up on Facebook.

Still not sold yet. But means that I'm still there at the job. It also means any other stuff is on hold.

Maybe if timing was better I guess. Who knows.

I haven't felt the urge to write blogs lately. I have started defining a new world. Something about modern day fantasy would be the closest to it.

Now I just need the main storyline thread.

Anyways, I don't know what's going to happen next still.
