Making Scars

My trip is over. I am "home" safe and sound, well over 2000 miles later. I definitely learned some things while gone. I learned just how far away i am from my hometown, i know that people actually wanted to see me while i was home, and I learned some things about myself.

After the long drive friday, i just went to bed when i got home. Saturday I went on a quick run, talked to my mom about fiances, tried to fix their computer, and made a blog post. It felt like i was al grown up. At 5 I went over to the Walberts, then i picked up where i left off. It was like high school/college. We watched TV, played video games, and ate. It was a good time.

Next day:
Live Free, Die Hard - I saw it. If you didn't at least give it a try, you are a communist. Yeah, i said it. John McClain is the most American man out there. Not seeing this film is just plain unpatriotic. With that said, the movie was just was good as i hoped. The action scenes were a little over the top, but no more so than the previous movies of the trilogy. The story is basically this: A cop stuck in the past, is confronted by a new-aged problem over his head, and the only common language between them is ass-kicking. When an elite group of hackers, led by an ex-government employee, tries to run the world into the ground with computer viruses, John McClain, a rundown NYPD detective has to stop them. He gets wrapped up in this by accident (a little cliche), but it becomes personal. Action-packed from beginning until end, like every movie should be.

Then dinner with my Mom, Stan, my sister Kayla, her boyfriend Justin, Stan's daughter Jill, and her boyfriend Rich. It ended with Stan drunk, me feeling weird about everyone being racist and talking about murders.

Monday, was Pizza Hut Buffet, a little picking up chics*, and bowling. Tuesday, a bike ride, lots of sitting around, blogging, Kyle and I picked up Nick, then Wii with Mark and Erin. Nick stayed at my house the rest of the week. Wednesday, the 4th:

Transformers - Saw this too. Not as good as Die Hard, but this was also amazing. When you bring a childhood classic to life in a way that looks as good as this movie, you have awesomeness. It was a little cheesy at parts, but not enough to ruin the film for me. Really if you don't know what the Transformers are... you must have missed the 80's. But... Sam Witwiki (Shia), a kid who gets his first car ends up to be Bumblebee (my favorite Transformer), a classic Camaro. Sam has the key to the Autobots stopping Megatron and the evil Decepticons from getting "the cube," which is the means to Earths destruction. Megan Fox, who plays Sam's love interest, Mikaela also makes the movie even more entertaining. She is gorgeous! The battles are awesome, the cars are cool, and the girls are hot. A summer must see. I can't even think of anything to complain about at the moment.

We then played horse shoes, drank beer, and played the Transformers video game (lots of that on this trip obviously). Dinner on the Grill, fireworks in the front lawn, and watched Shooter is how the day ended. It was a success i felt. Thursday, I got my oil changed, then we picked up chics* in King of Prussia. My dad and I then went for Chinese and had a good talk. He and I are a lot alike in some ways. I hope i can grow up to be like him, but be able to fix the mistakes he made in his life. Friday, we watched Man vs Wild (Bear Grills is more man than anyone), I wooped up at mini-golf, and watched Smoking Aces. I went to bed at 2 in the morning, only to get up at 7:30 to drive 1080 miles home the next morning.

I brought back a 24 case of Yuengling Light, 4 half gallons of Turkey Hill iced tea, a crock-pot, a bed-frame, an acoustic guitar, the Die Hard Collection (for $9.99!), pictures, and a sunburn on my left arm only.

I feel as if now i am going to live life as if every decision was already made for me. Good or bad. Every event shapes me. I hope this will give me a little more confidence to talk to girls. I'm sure i will elaborate on this later.

out.

*picking up chics is pretty much just going to the mall while nick and kyle poke fun at me for being a wimp.
