[sticky post] Some Adult Content [Aug. 23rd, 2014|01:06 am]
Dear reader, while I'd never wish to expose anyone to questionable content that they didn't want to see, I'm getting ready to start hosting my "adult" gifs and designs here, mostly as a way to show off some of my cool work. For the most part these designs will be in good taste. Some nudity may surface, but not always.

Nevertheless, any posts I make that feature these images will be screened for those that do not wish to view them. So, please, if you don't want to see these types of images set your LJ to filter out adult screened posts.

If you have no problem seeing these types of things, then cool. Welcome aboard.

Thank you.

Strange... [Sep. 16th, 2014|06:37 pm]
Something strange has been happening to me lately. Ever since "the date" I've noticed something. Now, I don't know if my confidence shot up after the date, or if it's something else. I guess, since I no longer have the stench of desperation on me, and I've been walking with some sort of new swagger that I didn't have before, I've been getting noticed by women.

Not just any women, but women that never gave me the time of day before. One woman in particular, we'll call her E. During the summer time E made a joke insinuating that I was some sort of creepazoid. She ignores me and rarely spoke to me outside of when she had to. Now, E is completely different. She smiles at me, and not just any smile, but a lingering smile. She smiles at me and sticks around whereas in the past she would have just walked away or ignored me. It's the little things that one notices. She talks to me way more now, and even laughs at my purposely not funny jokes. She stopped me in the cafeteria the other day just to say hello. Sometimes I'll catch her just smiling at me for no reason. Just last night she was telling me about where she works and how she wouldn't mind if I stopped by every now and then to keep her company.

Another woman, we'll call her T, is someone I flirted with from time to time. It never went past a casual flirt. I don't know how this subject came up, but it got to a point where with my new confidence and devil may care attitude, I told her I wanted to see her breasts. I just came out with it after our flirting built up to that point. We had never gone that far in our flirting, but I guess the new me wanted to test the waters. Not only did she send me pictures of them from her phone right then and there, but we went to the emergency stairwell, and I was able to feel her up as well. Hands went inside bra, and a good grope session occurred.

I don't think this would have happened pre "date." It's weird. Women are now more inclined to speak to me in a knowing way now. As stated before, the desperate pheromone is gone now. "The date" gave me a lot of confidence. It showed me that all it takes is telling a woman want you want instead of beating around the bush, and you can succeed in this area.

Or I could be imagining it all.

Fellas, ladies, has this ever happened to you or someone you know? And was it that women recognized this confidence boost or does it really have to do with pheromones going away?

Why can't I get landscape view when I post via mobile? Posting vertically is for the birds!

Was looking at LJ in Chrome, and a page translate button popped up. Wow! Now I can read all these Russian entries on the front page. Technology!

I ate Snickerdoodle ice cream today and I absolutely loved it! Bah! I can cheat my diet at least once. It was worth it.

Date Night [Sep. 9th, 2014|03:53 pm]
Remember when I went out with that female friend and I noted that I'd rather be out with someone else? Well, that someone else finally happened. After some back and forth we set a date and time. It was this past Friday. I had tickets to the symphony, and she was so excited about going, as was I. All that day, though I had been in a long conference training session that started at 9am and went until 4pm. I was tired, but excited at the same time. When the conference was over I texted her saying that I'd be waiting for her at the restaurant.

I arrived before her and told the hostess I was meeting someone. I sat at the table alone and a nervous wreck. I knew she would show up, but I'd seen so many movies and TV shows where a person gets stood up at the restaurant and it's the most embarrassing thing ever. That's when she texted me that she was parking and then walking toward the restaurant. FYI: the restaurant is downtown, so that's why there was the issue of parking and then walking. I didn't know the protocol here. I hadn't been on a date in forever. Do I stand up when she comes by? Well, of course, dummy! The whole chair pulling out and pulling in thing. Is this still required? Is this gentlemanly thing passé in 2014? Then, she finally showed up. I stood up, she gave me a big hug, I asked where she was gonna sit, then I pulled her chair out and pushed it back in... all on autopilot.

The last thing she said before she parted ways was that she looks forward to my "good morning" texts that I sent her each day. She said they make her smile and make her feel better.

While everything went great here is my thing with second dates. When second and third dates come around I tend to settle in and relax a bit, maybe too much to the point where I go on autopilot and I become unaware of what I'm doing or really saying. A lot of my relationships have failed because I stopped caring, maybe because oftentimes I think of getting to that point as a challenge, and after there is no more challenge I stop trying. Maybe that's it? I don't know. I'm not saying that's what I do, but it's a pretty good theory.

For the past couple of days I've been having some issues with the wifi connection in my house. Whenever I tried to download a song or torrent something the wifi would kick me off. It only happened on this computer, not on my phone or any of the other computers I have on the same network. I figured it out; I had recently put the Apple TV in my bedroom, and I guess certain Apple products clash with wifi connections. Needless to say once I figured it out and rectified the problem I stopped having issues. Yay.

Has anyone here had similar problems?

Today I went out and purchased the Fitbit Flex. While at school I'm gonna be doing a lot of walking, going up the stairs, and moving around. I want to be able to keep track of all of this with this device that I've been hearing about for some time. My buddy Kevin has one and he raves about it. I like that it is also a sleep mode that tracks your sleeping patterns and movements. This is extremely helpful to me since sleep often escapes me and I'd like to at least see my stats.

School starts tomorrow. I'm nervous to start a new school year, yet I know that I'm doing the right thing. I can't wait to get back into my acting class. And I can't wait to see what life is like as a Phi Theta Kappa officer. I'm gonna be involved in tons of meetings, a bunch of conferences and many chances to wear my officer medallion.
