Subject:You know what they say about friends?
Security:Public

Make new ones but keep the old.  One is silver and the other gold =P  (<3 futurama)

AHh livejournal.. haven't seen you in a while.  I didn't think people besides Kalyan actually posted on you anymore.

Hmm Let's try to make this not so much of a quiz blog this time eh?

It's funny when I look back at all the other posts I've put up in here.  Either a quiz post or something APO related.  Let's try to break that streak shall we?

In the past 2 weeks i've been to 2 bachelor parties... Such fun times and pretty different experiences.  Going to these has honestly just help me realize how lucky I am to have these people as friends.  It sounds super corny, but i love these memories.  Thinking about how/when we first met, when we actually became friends, meeting new friends too.  It's pretty amazing how long i've known some of these people and I still discover things i didn't know.

Great times and hopefully more great times ahead.

And speaking of new friends..

Happy Birthday to Arne!  The man with the delicious sandwich blog i follow religiously. 
Hope you've had a great birthday!

Star Trek Personality Test Results: ENFP

This test says you are an ENFP (Extrovert, Intuitive, Feeler, Perceiver).* In Star Trek, you share a basic personality configuration with the characters of James Kirk and Julian Bashir.



"The game isn't chess. It's poker." - Kirk

Qualities

People like you are generally great problem-solvers. You're highly innovative, creative and unique. You're optimistic by nature, which may make others believe you're naive, but actually you're full of energy, very clever, and determined not to be stopped. You're outgoing, curious, and extremely playful. Others are sometimes taken aback by your enthusiasm, but it keeps you going after others have dropped.

You're deeply caring, sensitive, and gentle, which, combined with your need to solve problems, may make you a little too eager to give others advice. You also process information very quickly, which may make others believe you're not listening to them. Before you share your feelings, you have to have time to process them.

You're adaptive and resourceful, but sometimes highly disorganized. You dream of having the perfect assistant, and, should one come along, you will treasure them beyond price. You respond best to people who encourage your unique viewpoints and insights, help you maintain harmony, and want to play and explore with you. You don't respond well when you're overwhelmed with details or when you're in a rigid situation.

Goals

Your primary goal in life is freedom to see possibilities, make connections, and be with a variety of people. Your reward is having spontaneous adventures.

Work

You're best employed in a position that can inspire others, winning them over with your zest and sincerity. You feel conflicts deeply, particularly in regards to personal ideals. You love new things, but often end up rejecting them when they fail to live up to your standards. You're a born crusader, and your gut instincts serve you very well indeed.

As much as you want perfection in relationships, you're very good at dealing with compromises at work, as long as everything fits within your general understanding of how things should be.

You tend to put off work you don't find interesting, so a good supervisor should help you balance your time between the new and innovative things you love and the routine that you tolerate.

Relationships

You want perfection in your relationships, so while you might take forever to give up on a bad relationship you care about, you may also abandon still-new friendships and loves at the first hint of imperfection or dullness. You love to be in love, and thrive on other's admiration, which you will readily return.

Your most difficult relationship may well be with yourself. Your own faults may bother your so deeply that you bury them, pretending to yourself that all is well when, in fact, you need help or a change. If the stress becomes extreme, your own sense of self-preservation may turn that deception outwards, blaming others for your own perceived faults.

Jobs


Good careers for your type include being an advertising account executive, starship captain, career counselor, developer of educational software, actor, graphics designer, corporate team trainer, psychologist, inventor, medical pioneer, and child welfare counselor.

Take the Test!

The Pool Boy
Random Gentle Sex Dreamer (RGSDm)

Friendly and eager. You are The Pool Boy.

A teen at heart, you anxiously move about your daily tasks, hoping, praying for a good, instant lay. You're carefree, enthusiastic, and rarely discouraged. Love is cool, but it's not for you right now. You know what is? Crotches.

You're a fun person in both big and small groups, and your friends trust and love you. Inside you, meanwhile, your lust is only growing. Imagine your beating heart sprouting pubic hair. Exactly. Try shaving that.

Your exact opposite:
The False Messiah

Deliberate Brutal Love Master
If you're not scoring enough--which you aren't--you should adopt new strategies. Lower your standards. Be aggressive. Pool Boys are often submissive and hope (desperately) sex will find them. Realize that passiveness will not hook the horny guys you desire. A bolder approach and sheer repetition will.

When browsing OkCupid, consider both The Bachelor and The Playboy.


ALWAYS AVOID: The False Messiah, The Mixed Messenger

*Stolen from Judy and Erin's xanga's*

Get to know yourself better

Your view on yourself:
You are down-to-earth and people like you because you are so straightforward. You are an efficient problem solver because you will listen to both sides of an argument before making a decision that usually appeals to both parties.

The type of girlfriend/boyfriend you are looking for:
You are a true romantic. When you are in love, you will do anything and everything to keep your love true.

Your readiness to commit to a relationship:
You are ready to commit as soon as you meet the right person. And you believe you will pretty much know as soon as you might that person.

The seriousness of your love:
You are very serious about relationships and aren't interested in wasting time with people you don't really like. If you meet the right person, you will fall deeply and beautifully in love.

Your views on education
Education is less important than the real world out there, away from the classroom. Deep inside you want to start working, earning money and living on your own.

The right job for you:
You have plenty of dream jobs but have little chance of doing any of them if you don't focus on something in particular. You need to choose something and go for it to be happy and achieve success.

How do you view success:
You are confident that you will be successful in your chosen career and nothing will stop you from trying.

What are you most afraid of:
You are afraid of having no one to rely on in times of trouble. You don't ever want to be unable to take care of yourself. Independence is important to you.

Who is your true self:
You are full of energy and confidence. You are unpredictable, with moods changing as quickly as an ocean. You might occasionally be calm and still, but never for long.

Try it out for yourself!

Mood:Bagging!

I apologize, this is double posted from my Xanga!

So here's my idea...I was recently looking at the big ol pile of crap that I had to pack up and move because inevitably every August 20th, 90% of Davis residents go through the same conundrum...Pack it or throw it away! So....with that said and hopefully with the intention of getting a small jump on your packing/organizing...here comes:


***The "I Don't Want to Take It With Me" Clothes Drive 2005***


Here's the deal: Bag up any clothes/blankets/sheets/towels that you don't wear that often but ARE STILL USEABLE. And on Thursday or Friday of next week (The 25th or 26th) we'll collect all the stuff (if you can drop it off that's awesome, if not I can prob get someone to help me get it from you) and then on one of the follwing Days, most likely the next Monday, the 29th.. We'll drop it off, hopefully a good carload of clothes for the homeless/needy. I know I have at least 2-3 bags of clothes that I just don't wear or can't remember why I bought which i'm going to donate.

Why throw it out? Someone else can use it!

If you are interested in participating in the IDWTTIWM Drive (haha that's an awful acronym), reply back to this xanga post, or email me @ drew.mayen@gmail.com

ps - seriously, don't give me a bag of crap.. if you would never ever wear it again cuz it's got a ton of holes in it or smells or is just plain nasty, remember that karma's a bitch and I do know where you live. So yeah! donations all around! Why take it with you if you're not gonna use it!

Oh and if you don't live in the Davis area... Why not go through your clothes and donate a bag sometime around the same time? Solidarity! Post here if you're gonna donate too cuz I'd love to know

the Provacateur

(56% dark, 39% spontaneous, 50% vulgar)

your humor style:
VULGAR | COMPLEX | DARK


You'll crack on anything, and you're often witty, even caustic, about it. Therefore, your sense of humor is polarizing. You're transgressive, and you've got a seriously sharp 'edge'--maybe too much for some folks.

If they get you, people think you're one of the funniest (and smartest) people in the world. If they don't, they think you're an ass. Whatever, right? While some might question your judgement, your comic intellect is unquestionably respected.

PEOPLE LIKE YOU: Chris Rock - Lenny Bruce - George Carlin




My test tracked 3 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:


free online dating free online dating
You scored higher than 58% on dark

You scored higher than 52% on spontaneous

Funny. Could be right.. transgressive makes sense. I like the 'if they don't, they think you're an ass' cuz i've said that so many times haha

Mood:happy turning morose

So, this I happened upon this song totally by chance while perusing Jack Johnson's newest album. Man.. I want someone to write this song about me, or our relationship. It's just so simple and I can just see someone playing this on their guitar singing it to their partner of 10 years. I think it's the simplicity that gets to me, it's just a string of memories put to melody. Sigh, I hate when I get moody like this, I don't know if I'm feeling sad because I don't have someone who could play this for me or what. It doesn't feel sad, maybe hopeful that when I find someone he and I will get to have memories like this? I like to think it's mostly hopeful, but I know there's a little sad in there. That's funny to me, being sad about something so abstract and romanticized. Heh, I feel like such a n00b, so untried, 'innocent' (heh, never thought me and innocent would be put together in a sent) even when it comes to this stuff. I blush like a school maid whenever i'm around someone I like, worse if i'm called on it. It's like i'm back in elementary school. My first reaction is to pull a pigtail or punch in the arm... heaven forbid you say 'I like you' or even 'want to go out', stupid. stupid.

Damn you jack johnson, damn you.

Oh look, angst filled blog, hurrah, i have joined the moral majority of blogging... that's what I get for downloading random ass music @ 2am and being in a morose mood.

Here are the lyrics that have brought me lowCollapse )

Mood:annoyed and grossed out

Double posted in My Craptacular Xanga Inspired by Lindsay's blog

AEST) Anti-rape device created An inventor in South Africa has come up with a possible solution to end the country's unenviable reputation of being the rape capital of the world. It is estimated a woman or girl is raped every 26 seconds in South Africa. But inventor Sonette Ehlers says women will soon be able to wear a device which would attach itself to the rapist's penis by microscopic hooks as he withdraws. Ms Ehlers says the device is expected to go on sale by the end of the year. "The rape device is a condom, it's shaped almost like a tampon," she said. "Hollow inside and the inner wall of it is lined, and there we have got all our technology and little hooks which, upon forced penetration, will attach to the skin of the perpetrator and only a medical doctor can remove it. "He'll have to turn himself in, so he's marked for immediate identification." - BBC


Here's an article about it, if you want to read more


Here's my reaction to this idea...If you don't want to read about fish-hooks or see me going off about a subjectively random topic... move on:


Good LordCollapse )

You scored as Harry Potter. You are a very passionate and caring person when it comes to the wellness of your friends as well as others. You're very temperamental and sarcastic, and sometimes you'll flow a little bit over to the arrogant and obnoxious side when your temper gets the best of you. But you're bold and daring and will stand up for what you feel is right with bravery.
