It’s easy for me to put things bothering me on the back burner. It’s easy for me to work 5 days a week this summer, go to shows, and hang out with friends all the time. I put my problems out of my view.
My uncle (Dad’s side) is visiting from Virginia and he had a talk with Neil and I tonight. I love him to death and I am so thankful for him. But shit got real. Talking about my living situation and my relationship with my mother. He talkes about how bad it is and to me and Neil about more terrible things she has done recently. I am at the point where I cannot concern myself with my Mom, that is too much for me. I’m done with it.
He told me that he believes in Neil and I beyond belief and that we need to believe in ourselves like that. Whenever he visits I get long talks about what I need to do to keep myself on the right track, and I appreciate it, because I don’t have that at home. I don’t have someone to put me in my place. He said it was time for Neil and I to move forward. And he’s right. I’ve been stuck for a long time. I’ve been down for a long time.
So I get on Facebook the other day and there’s a message waiting for me from this person I don’t know whatsoever named Joseph Usabuwera. I read it and it is someone my uncle met in Kigali, Rwanda when he visited on numerous occasions. I added him because he asked and I thought it was so sweet that he went out of his way to find me and tell me how kind my uncle is. I know the basis of what my uncle does in Africa. He went there the first time to visit the memorials of the 1994 Rwanda genocide. After being affected by that, he went back to teach art and help the destroyed villages regain a little happiness by painting murals on the sides of their buildings. He scaled Mount Kilimanjaro and had people sponsor him per foot he climbed to put towards a clean water system in this village. He continues returning and has also helped them to create a sunflower oil business and is trying to help them earn money from it. He is a huge sponsor there and I admire him greatly for it. He makes me so proud, and I can truly call him my hero. I want so badly to follow in his footsteps and help do what he does there. Now that i’m eighteen I truly want him to bring me along so I can help make a difference in these people’s lives. So many people say that they want to go to Africa to help people, but I really mean it. With all of my heart. And I have a way to do it. With my uncle. Who truly inspires me every day that I can achieve anything. I love him. And I truly hope that I can get to Rwanda, to these people, and help.
I didn’t write my journal in a long time because I’ve been very busy with my job. But now its quiet so I will write. Also because I’m bored. My mom says that I’m trouble when I’m bored. Sometimes when I’m bored I like to visit my friends’ offices. Bill doesn’t like it when I visit his office even though we’re partners and equal. Bill also doesn’t let me drive anymore. He says I’m a “hazard to civilians”. We had a driving adventure. That’s what Nina calls it. She says “Gary, tell me about your driving adventure.” then Bill makes a noise and walks away if he’s close and Nina only asks me when he’s close. I don’t think he’s very happy when I talk about it. It’s because he yelled a lot. That’s what I tell everyone. Its true. I don’t lie. He yelled at me to brake and he was very nervous I think. I’m a good driver though. My mom didn’t want me to work anymore with Doctor Rosen and my friends. Its because at dinner she asked me how work was going and I said that its a secret and need to know. And she said she needs to know because she’s my mom and that’s true so I told her. But then she got upset. Then she wouldn’t let me go to work but I went anyway when she was busy because I knew my friends needed my help. She wanted me to work with my uncle Alan but I don’t work for him, I work for Doctor Rosen. I helped my friends and I got to be in charge of a mission to help an Alpha. That’s because I’m an adult and I’m very good at what I do. That’s why I got to be in charge. But then a man held a shotgun at me. They’re okay guns but I don’t like it when they’re pointed at me. I told him I’m a secret agent but then Bill came and helped me because we’re partners. He’s very good at his job too. My mom shouldn’t worry about my job because my friends look out for me and keep me safe. Like Bill. He kept me safe. And Hicks kept me safe too. He made sure I didn’t get hurt by David Burton with the bad breath. I have good friends so my mom shouldn’t worry.
new and improved teen ‘mobile platform’ EOS and fermat!
@littlemissgeek8mandi i confess to not have been thinking a lot about the tracy island whiz kids recently. i am sorry! but i was playing around in CAS (a.k.a. the glorified dollmaker) and i’ve downloaded so much cute stuff, i just had to go back to those teen E & mat sims i made a while ago, specifically so i could dress EOS up.
outfit 1, 3 and 7 are like, the chic outfits, maybe chosen with some help from lady p. i gave her pigtails with her cute athletic outfit to callback to her 1.0 look ;) and an all-important NASA t-shirt for PJs, i liked the knotted mesh ‘cause it could be an old one of john’s that she’s tied up to be girlier? outfit 6 was the first one i whipped up, i just love the starry tights, but the middle dress is my fave fave fave, it’s a puff sleeve peter pan collared dress with a print of astronauts and rockets floating around in space!!! it’s the literal cutest.
i don’t have quite so many cute clothes for boys, but mat has a fair amount of fun graphic print t-shirts going on, and i like his party outfit best :’) and i haven’t played with them in-game yet! i think i might make a separate save for them.
Can I have a ship for teen wolf? I have blue-grey eyes, longish light brown hair, and fairly tan skin. I love reading, writing, animals, and volleyball. I tend to be really protective of my friends, so if you mess with people I care about I'll fight you. I'm also quite blunt and will give you my honest answer or opinion.
I ship you with Scott!
How you met: You had just started work at the Animal Clinic; being a druid, just like your Uncle Alan Deaton, you were put in charge of sorting out medicines and cures for illnesses and ailments.
There was suddenly a lot of commotion, before a dark haired boy was hauled into the room, and placed onto the metal table. He was covered in blood and claw marks, only which could have came from a werewolf.
After a lot of healing, the unfortunate boy finally regained consciousness with a groan.
“Hey,” He said breathlessly, a weak goofy grin on his face,“ I’m Scott.”
Louis C.K. Answers Burning Questions About Surprise New Series 'Horace and Pete'
Louis C.K. surprised fans Saturday — who were already preparing for a long hibernation until the next season of FX’s Louie premieres — when he released the first episode of an entirely new TV show, Horace and Pete.
The series stars C.K. as Horace, who runs a 100-year-old bar with his brother Pete (Steve Buscemi) following his father’s death. The first episode also introduces Horace’s Uncle Pete (Alan Alda) who works at the bar, his uncle’s former girlfriend (Jessica Lange), his sister (Edie Falco) who is fighting him over ownership of the bar, his daughter (Aidy Bryant) who basically hates him, in addition to a colorful cast of bar patrons. (And if that’s not enough star power, Paul Simon wrote the show’s theme song.)
The first episode of the series appeared on his website without fanfare, without really any warning whatsoever and immediately elicited all sorts of questions: Where did this come from? When was this made? When will there be more?
C.K., who is writing, directing, producing and distributing the series on his own, attempted to pull the curtain back on his top-secret project and answer some of those questions in a post Thursday on his official website.
“Part of the idea behind launching it on the site was to create a show in a new way and to provide it to you directly and immediately, without the usual promotion, banner ads, billboards and clips that tell you what the show feels and looks like before you get to see it for yourself,” he says. “As a writer, there’s always a weird feeing that as you unfold the story and reveal the characters and the tone, you always know that the audience will never get the benefit of seeing it the way you wrote it because they always know so much before they watch it. And as a TV watcher I’m always delighted when I can see a thing without knowing anything about it because of the promotion.”
As many viewers might have guessed from the very up-to-date references to the presidential election in the first episode, there is a tight turnaround for each episode. C.K. said he is currently working on episode two to premiere this Saturday on his website. Beyond that, it’s unclear if episodes will drop every Saturday, and it’s also still unclear just many episodes to expect.
However, C.K. also addressed the cost of the episode — $5 per download — in his post as well. “The dirty, unmovable fact is that this show is f—ing expensive,” C.K. says. “Horace and Pete is a full-on TV production with four broadcast cameras, two beautiful sets and a state of-the-art-control room and a very talented and skilled crew and a hall-of-fame cast.”
According to C.K., the next episode will cost $2 and the episodes after that will cost $3 each. “Basically this is a handmade, one-guy-paid-for-it version of a thing that is usually made by a giant corporation,” he continues. “I charged five dollars because I need to recoup some of the cost in order for us to stay in production.”
The first episode of Horace and Pete is available on LouisCK.net.
