|another one of those weeks.

(I'll get to the bad stuff later)
Last time I said I would try to update this more regularly, and give you an update on how 2013 is going. I'll try to just go cronologically through the year. (granted I might not remember everything, it's been an interesting year)
I guess the first thing I should cover is valentine's day. (you all know how I feel about that) the day itself wasn't too bad. no one left me cookies, or tried to cheer me up. I got to just sit in my room and play assassin's creed 3 all day. but the week I went to 3 different parties. the first one was a speed dating activity for FHE. (that seem to be a theme) I was getting tired of speed dating activities, so I just did card tricks for people as they rotated past me. it wasn't my intention for it to actually work, and get peoples attention.
next there was the semi-formal institute dance. I ended up wearing all black, because why not. the dance itself wasn't too bad, but I wish more people I knew had showed up. the last thing was by far the most enjoyable. (for the most part) a friend of mine was preform for a special black tie party a friend of a friend was hosting to show off local musicians. (the host was a musician) I only showed up because I thought callee was going to be there. (I'll get to callee in a bit) but while I was there I met some really nice people, including the host, valerie larson. when she played her set I loved every one of her songs, and I even ended up buying her lp at the end of the night. along with being a great musician, she is also drop dead gorgeous. we are now friends on facebook, and she was complaining alittle awhile ago about no one in utah doing anything original for dates, so I will have to come up with something original to take her too.
speaking of original dates. my ward did a murder mystery dinner that we were all suppose to bring dates too. I was going to ask callee, but I knew my home teaching companion liked her, so I give him the chance. (which he never took) but I did end up going a sweet girl in my complex named megan, who as it turns out collects swords. the two of us have kinda bonded over that a little bit, and everyone insists that I start taking her on dates, which I have tried to a few times, but we really don't have that much in common, outside of swords. we do have plans to go to a corn maze sometime in october. but I really don't see a relationship budding from that. we will always be friends, but I just can't see going further.
ok, I have mentioned her twice now: callee. callee is the choir director for my ward, who is also a great musician, as well as drop-dead gorgeous. on top of that, she has a great heart, and she is super friendly. but more importantly then all that, she does west coast swing. she new to west coast, but she is already an amazing follow. we have dance a few times at ballroom utah, but we have never actually done dancing together. we've made plans to several times, but something always falls through.
on the subject of dating, a bunch of people I have mentioned in the past have gotten married. this last year I think I went to 6 different weddings. including that of danielle and jen. (yes, jen finally found someone.) so now I can finally close my life on jen, like I have tried too so many times in the past. I really am happy she ended up with a great guy, and at the wedding he knew who I was as soon as he heard jen say rob. (my reputation precedes me appearently) it's always nice to know that at least one person values my friendship.
ok, time for some of the bad things. remember my kidney stone? well it turns out I got a fungel infections from the surgery. it took almost a year of trying to treat it at home, trying to track down free or low-income clinic, or clinics that don't take insurance, to finally just trying to find any doctor that would see me, reguardless of cost, and just getting it looked at. I finally found one that said since it had been almost a year he would see me. so ontop of the hospital not following through with finanical assisstance like they pre-approved me for, they give me an infection I had for nearly a year.
what else? there was my recent job at spirit. (a halloween retail store) I got the job offer monday night, showed up to start work tuesday, got sick at work and had to leave early on wednesday, and picked up my final check on thursday. they said they would call me when they need me to come back, but I think they meant to say "if" thy need me to come back. so now I am back to having no job, and very little money. but atleast I have no expenses. so I can use my money on things like dancing, and taking megan to a corn maze.
that brings me to this last week. while this last couple of weeks actually. but to tell that, I need to back up even farther. last month, megan had moved out of her apartment, which was in my complex. so naturally I told her I would be available all day to help her move. after going with her to drop off the first load at her parents house (for moral support more then actual help) we decided that if she even needed to just get away, she could come over anytime. not long after she moved a friend of my posted a link on facebook for a fantasy ball. while I was helping megan move she was showing me all of her fantasy and medieval dresses, so naturally I asked megan if she wanted to go to the ball, if it wasn't too late for her. well she said yes, and everything was set, until the night before when you called me to get the information, and remembered it goes pretty late. it had been a long week for her and she didn't want to stay out all night.
I guess it's good that she didn't go though, because what I failed to notice on the flier was that the address was that of a techno club downtown. (not really the kind of place megan would enjoy) but I ended up going by myself, because I still knew people who woudl be there. (or so I thought) it's an 18+ club, so I took my id out of my wallet since my wallet doesn't really fit into my sith lord costume. so I took that, a couple of 20s, and put them in my pocket. the first 200 people in costume got grab bags with fliers and a cup. I didn't want to carry my grab bag all night, since I had two lightsaber with me, so I checked it at the coat check. at the end of the night when I took my claim check to get my bag, which now also had smaller pieces of my costume, I didn't noticed that my id fall out of my wallet.
so I have to go back to the club the next night to pick it up. that was last saturday. they were doing a vampire ball, which I found out about the next before during the fantasy ball, but wasn't sure I was going to show up. well since I had to got back for my id, I figured I might as well dress up as dracula and go to the vampire ball. people liked my dracula costume, and my sith costume from the night before (or atleast the lightsabers) and I met some new people. during one of the random conversation, close up magic somehow come up, and one girl started ask me if I do parties, and how much I charge, etc. I didn't have any of my cards with me, since I was my dracula costume, so I gave her my number and told her I would come back next week with some magic stuff to show her.
and that brings me to this last saturday. appearently if you aren't dressed as a dracula people are less inclined to talk to you. the girl (I can't remember her name) that wanted to see my magic didn't even show up, and I don't have her number since, understandably, she doesn't give it to guys she meets there. so I have no way of getting a hold of her, all the "friends" I made at the vampire ball ingored me all night, and any hope of making alittle extra cash with a magic show flew out the window. (plus I spent about 15 dollars more then I was planning to going to area 51 3 times, instead of just once.)
so that's why I am at in my life right now. some good, some bad, but mostly uncertainty. the only thing I know if that I really wanted to check out the haunted forest this year, but it's hard to find someone that wants to go to a haunted house. between that, and the money I spent at area 51, i don't think that will happen. but atleast I can go to a corn maze, and I will still go through nightmare on 13th. maybe I can even get a friends and family pass from one of my friends.
"I usually enjoy parties with unconscious women on the floor, but this party of just bad."
