NFL. School. Fuckin' Marvin.

The first week of NFL action, was a disaster. Everyone tends to neglect that the first week of NFL action is poor because teams are just starting. Usually by week 4, is when things get rolling. The Bengals thoroughly embarrassed the K.C Chiefs despite a shaky offensive performance. A Cincinnati team with improved defense (held fantasy stud RB Johnson to 68 yards and 7 sacks, in addition to a pair of fumbles and an INT). The real embarrassment came from Green Bay and Oakland. (I’m willing to consider Tampa’s horrid showing as a mere aberration). Oakland has a sorry excuse of a QB. They knew this going into the season and were desperate enough to actually give Jeff George a try-out. Green Bay, was probably well prepared for the season they are about to have and despite a tremendously weak schedule, they will still have trouble reaching 5 wins. Oakland, really looked like a team that may be rendered winless throughout the entire season.

 

A lot of hype and talk pours from the first week and people are already proclaiming that Baltimore is “back”, that Washington is already dead. That T.O and Drew Bledsoe are heading towards a collision by week 6. I get that the Media and talk radio need some material but they really pull stuff out of their collective asses to cover air.

 

Aside from obvious things such as Aaron Brooks being the most inept starting QB today and for the better part of his career and that GB isn’t going upward anytime soon…nothing is for sure in the NFL. Except the things that are for sure…

 

College Football, on the other hand? Complete bore. The only intriguing stuff is the near wins from the cup-cake teams and that hasn’t gotten anywhere and that element is gone now as real games get underway. I just wish they would go ahead and start the BCS bitching and the playoff complaints.

 

Baseball, is suffering again from NFL’s mighty hand as the summer which was ripe with interest is quickly fading outside the AL Central competitors. The Reds, are still hanging by a thread but with the Marlins being the Marlins…You probably should pencil them in for another WC berth and WS victory as America yawns in approval.

 

The high from the previous weekend being caught up in the wedding bliss and anxious excitement that surrounds it dissipated sometime Monday afternoon and has been sinking downwards. The first two weeks of classes, where things are still in the air and everyone including the professor is getting adjusted has settled and things are really starting to pick up steam now and Im trying to kill years of laziness by actually getting it done ahead of time.

 

I had 6 classes at one point, but I've scaled down to four classes. Figuring the other two classes are better suited for next semester where I can take those two classes in addition to the other 3 required classes for the Miami Plan. In case I never mentioned it, Creative Writing is my major.

 

This is the result of countless professors, peers and family/friends telling me that I am a polished creative mind. While my actual writing skills need touch-up, it’s wise direction to take. I don't think any major I would choose actually matters to me in the long run, as my future is probably set in some office anyways. I suppose I should be focused on Business-Management but despite my experience and skills in that department, I don't like business.

 

I really need to get a job though. Not because I need money (still got that saved) but I need something to fill up the hours. Everyone else I know (knew) is always working/schooling. I need something to do with the other 14 hours of my day, because the 'NET isn't it.

 

I do hate being single. I really do. The really annoying part about this is that im constantly reminded of my most recent ex, because I have a class with her older sister and we usually have lunch together. It's completely cordial but obviously the back of mind is thinking about my ex. I don't want to get back with her, but I do want that *thing* back again.

 

There are always options. Two of them are right there...

 

One would be my sister's best friend, the girl from the wedding that I mentioned. As of this moment, she is still with her boyfriend but things change and if that requires me to push the first domino...then it might just come down to that.

 

There is this other girl, this started back a couple weeks ago. It was just a couple days of constant eye contact but no direct communication.

 

Then, I finally went to her as we were walking towards the parking lot...we had a very lovely conversation that afternoon and we make the occasional chit-chat here and there and the eye contact has remained persistent...but I’m still feeling a slight chill of ice in her. I want to break that but in a rare occurrence for me...I'm nervous.

 

Maybe it’s the months spent here with people like WP and Marvin clouding my mind and injecting their issues through me because I’m rarely in the position to lack confidence.

 

I’ll figure this out yet.

Slight update

 

I got a txt message from my sister's friend

 

Hey, You should come over to our place for the Bengals game, let me know

 

First, "our" is her and her cousin/niece (some relative)who have an apartment. I don't directly know what this means and I can't just ask if her bf will be there but I assume he will...

Hawk34, don't think I missed your snide remark about me there.

 

I think this is an awkard situation. Well, it would be for me anyway as I have a hard time trying to figure out how to act in front of a girl who has a boyfriend.

 

The interesting thing is that she invited you despite having a boyfriend. Maybe she's testing you to check out your manliness or just to see if you two will be just friends. Or she's setting you up with her cousin/niece(some relative). Perhaps you could have a 3some.

 

Make sure before you go to get checked for any diseases you might have. 18(3) =54 women = possible sexually transmitted disease. Don't think of doing anything until you get checked out because that wouldn't be fair to your partner.

WP, it's the other way around. Men are divided by 3. Women are x'd by three. The actual answer is 6.

 

It wasn't a snide remark. It was a straight commentary, listening to you and Marvin, probably lessened my confidence by some internet osmosis.

 

There's nothing awkward about being with the BF, I did that at my sister's wedding. It's just matter of knowing her intentions.

 

I'm not going to jump in and shove the guy aside. That's her role but I'm not going to punk out and stay idle waiting.

 

If anything, I'm more focused on the other girl anyways. Its just that my sister's friend is showing more active signs of life.

Oh sorry, the way you wrote the remark in the other thread it sounded like you had already done the dividing by 3 bit. :D
