[ mood | confused ]

This is the first time I've updated my journal in almost 2 years. Wow! I was looking at old entires, when life was surprisingly simple. Those entries were written at one of the best points in my life. Now things are different. Im growing up. Heard this song the other day and it explains my situation to a tee.

Coming out of my cage
And I've been doin' just fine
Gotta gotta be down
Because I want it all
It started out with a kiss
How did it end up like this?
It was only a kiss
It was only a kiss

Now I'm falling asleep
And she's calling a cab
While he's having a smoke
And she's taking a drag

Now they're going to bed
And my stomach is sick
And it's all in my head
But she's touching his chest now
He takes off her dress now
Letting me go

And I just can't look
It's killing me
And taking control

Turning saints into the sea
Swimming through sick lullabies
Choking on your alibis
But it's just the price I pay
Destiny is calling me
Open up my eager eyes
Cause I'm Mr. Brightside

Honestly [11 Mar 2003|06:50pm]
I believe
I believe
I believe
I believe the love you talk about with me
is it true, do I care
honestly, you can try to wipe the memories aside
but it's you that you erase

'cause there's no place that I could be without you
it's too far to discard the life I once knew
honestly, all the weather storms are bringing
are just a picture of my dreams
'cause when I think of you as mine
and allow myself with time
to lead into the life we want
I feel loved, honestly
I feel loved, this honestly

I believe you mean the best that life can bring
I believe in it all
honestly, you can try
your heart is just as long as mine
is it ours to let go

'cause there's not place that I could be without you
it's too dark to discard the life I once knew
honestly, a single wrong is not enough
to cover up the pain in us
'cause when I think of you as mine
and allow myself with time
to lead into the life we want
I feel loved, honestly
I'll make a joke so you must laugh
I'll break your heart so you must ask
is this the way to get us back
I don't know, honestly
I don't know, this honestly

there's no place that I could be without you

there's no place that I could be without you
there's no place that I could gleam without you
there's no place that I could dream without you
there's no place that I could be without you

Africa [01 Jun 2002|04:27pm]
Greetings everyone from Africa. As Grouch Marx once said, It'S God's country, and he can keep it." Not really. I love the country. We went to a centre yesterday and I got to play with the kids and had a blast. Today we went touring Durban. The International Surfing Association Competition was here today. I have had a lot of fun and I'm e-mailing everyone whom I remember their e-mail addresses. OK, I'm goign to run. I miss you all.

Happy Birthday Andrew... [03 May 2002|10:08am]
[ mood | geeky ]

Andrew's birthday is today, yay! He is 20 years old. It's weird to look back and realize that we've known each other for 2 years, and it really doesn't seem that long. And next year, we are rooming together!!! That is goign to be awesome. Watch out GWU (and especially Trae) b/c it is going to be a partay! He is an awesome friend, jsut like ALL my other awesome friends (Jamie and Jessi ;-) )

I have my first exam today at one. It's Microbiology and supposed to be all mulitple choice, so I'm not that worried. I just hope I studied enough.

I was talking to a guy from home, Allen, andn we were just talking about life and it's funny how we go through the same things and see the same stuff. If you are just honest and open with people, you'll see that you really have a lot in common and you can talk about a lot and get advice. He is a really cool guy.

Happy Birthday to Sarah too. Even though today isn't her birthday, I didn't write in my journal on the day of it, so I'm saying it now. Wow!

Ok, I'm going to study a little more and then go ace this exam.

Girls Gone Wild... [30 Apr 2002|01:55pm]
[ mood | energetic ]

Yesterday was really busy. I went to a Res-tech pizza aprty last night and we were sitting around watching ESPN while some 7th grader girls were outside playing softball (stop flirting, Justin!). So then someoen tells us to look outside and these three girls were beating the mess outa each other with their fists and gloves. It was the funniest thing b/c one would sneak up behind another one and hit her and then run. They keep doing this for awhile. Then Scot opens the window and yells somethign at them. We were all cracking up.

Becky and Ashley came up during break and I practiced my speeches for them and drew Ashley's blood. I'm doing my speeches on phlebotomy and giving blood. I'm also goign to draw Andrew's blood for a visual aid.

Becky is the sweetest thing in the world. She brought my lunch and lsft me an encouragment note in my mailbox. I lvoe her so much. She is so precious.

I took my Microbiology lab final today and it took me 5 minutes!!!! Whoa. And I know I did good too.

I'm off to get Andrew and deliever to very awesome speeches. Lata.

Last night... [24 Apr 2002|09:19am]
[ mood | silly ]

Last night was so much fun. Me, John, Chip (for a little while), Matt, Tim, Trae, Ash, and Becky came up. We had a blast. College life is so much fun. We took a Sparkling Grape Juice bottle and peeled the label off to where it looked like a wine bottle and set it in front of the RA's door. Then we jsut sat around and talked an goofed off. We talked about what each other kids would be like, why I sound like Pikey when I laugh, and a lot of other things. It's neat b/c when we all get together, I feed off their energy and we have a blast. I have the best friends in the world and we have a great time. The bad part is when they leave and I am 100% worn out.

Today is our 5 month anniversary. It's been the most wonderful 5 months of my life. I love Becky with all my heart.

Well, it's time to get started on what promises to be a really busy day. Today is Tri-Beta inductions and WE is going to be here tonight!

Tomorrow is only a day away... [23 Apr 2002|12:15pm]
[ mood | bouncy ]

I am so excited about tomorrow. It is going to be really busy but it is going to be exciting. Tomorrow means I've been dating the most precious, wonderful, gorgeous girl in the world. Ah, amour. Second, I get inducted into Tri-Beta (Biology Honor Society) tomorrow night. Then Weekend Excursion is coming to play here. So tomorrow is really busy from 10-?. Straight after lab is induction and right after that is the concert. I am so excited. WE's new CD is out too. I just need to find that money tree so I can get it.

I am so disgusted with hypocrites. People who say they love Jesus with their mouth but don't act that way during the week. I may not be the best Christian out there but at least I try to do the right thing.

Interesting Life... [19 Apr 2002|12:24pm]
[ mood | exhausted ]

Last night was so fun. Ash, Pam, Becky, John, Bobbie, Austin Matt, Tim, and myself were in John's room "watching a movie" and talking. It was a lot of fun to hang out with them. Of course, I was my loud self.

Bec is gone this weekend :-( I'm going to miss her so much. With everything going on, we really just need some alone time together to talk. It's fun to hang out w/ friends, but the quality time is when we really get to know each other better. I'm going to have the room to myself this weekend and I'm going to do some work. I have a presentation Monday on Antibiotic and Antimicrobial Resistance for Microbiology.

It's a really stressful time with exams but a 96 on my last Organic test (highest grade in the class) really made me feel better.

Off to lunch...eventually.

I guess you have to know them for this to be funny... [07 Apr 2002|01:50pm]
AIM conversation

Compguy007: I now know the 3 mechanisms for antimicrobial resistance
Wintersgang: I am so repressed
Compguy007: repressed?
Wintersgang: yes
Compguy007: why repressed?
Compguy007: I thought you would say impressed
Wintersgang: If I said impressed, the would be logical and I have 4 kids
Wintersgang: Is that logical?
Compguy007: point taken

A funny church story... [07 Apr 2002|12:44pm]
[ mood | geeky ]

As going to church is important to me, though I may not make it every single Sunday, I was able to make it this Sunday. So I leave and cruise to Shelby to go to a baptist church that Trae and I went ot earlier in the semester. So I saw the churchand parked. As I walked in expecting to see the saem church with the vast sanctuary, I was shocked to see a smaller sanctuary with the people at the front wearing funny robes, one having "de colores" on it while being multi-colored. If the shock of being at the wrong church wasn't enough, I walk in while they are saying the Lord's Prayer. Whiel they were saying the Lord's Prayer, my mind remembered something I read yesterday about children saying the Lord's Prayer. One child said it as "...and lead us not into temptation but deliever us some e-mail...." Another child recited it as "...and let us forgive those who put trash in out baskets..." So I have no idea where I am at or even what church I am at. I immediately assumed the worst, I was at a Luthern church. I scanned the pamplet to get a name and I discovered I was at a Methodist church...hmmm.

I am so lucky to have the most wonderful friends in the world. Dr. Winters and his family is one of them. He helps me out so much when I have questions or problems. I am so thankful for him...he's the greatest.

Ok, I've got so much work done this weekend, no use to let the fun stop now.

Whew... [06 Apr 2002|10:34pm]
[ mood | bored ]

What a week it's been. It has been so busy. Becky is gone this weekend on a FOCUS trip. I really miss her but it has given me some time to do work. Last night and today, I've done a 5-7 minute speech, a 7-10 minute speech, and found some information for my Microbiology research paper. I am so pathetic. I called her cell phone and listened to her voicemail just so I could hear her precious voice. I'm so in love with her. I can't wait till she gets back, even though I won't get to see her for long b/c she has a lot of work to do this week. Ok, I'm going back to doing the same thing I've done all weekend...being boerd out of my mind.

Waiting for break... [29 Mar 2002|08:46am]
[ mood | mellow ]

I'm back at school for, at most, 7 hours. I came back for 7 hours, actually a Pre-Cal test. Yesterday's lunch went really well. I met a trustee on the board that knows my dad. It is so impressive who knows my parents. They may jsut be a barber and a hair stylist, but they cut the hair of High Point's most prominent citizens...literally. I was telling dad last night how blessed he was. He could be working at Fantastic Sam's cutting hair for people who live in Clara Cox Apts. (the ghetto and worse place you could be if you are white and it is dark).

Last night while I was still at home, Bec and I went to eat at Southern Roots. Mom said the food was like Grateful Bread (a sandwich shop) but the food was like Noble's. I hated that my appetite wasn't bigger (I was expecting a sandwich for dinner) and that I felt rushed to get back.

I had the neatest surprise when I got back yesterday. Becky had made my bed and left a note on it with a stuffed animal who has seen it all (been hung, went to camp, knows how to apply makeup, cleans, etc...) The neat part was on the bottom of Chip's bed (we ahve bunkbeds and I sleep on the bottom) she wrote Nic and Bec with the "c" attached and wrote "I (heart) U" IT was abotu the first time we did something together. We sat outside in the freezing cold waiting to see a meteor shower. She is absolutely the best girlfriend that there is or ever was. I am so crazy about her.

I found out yesterday that I friend of mine (the one who I brought up to your apt. Jessi) was in a motorcycle accident, but he wasn't hurt too bad. Good thing too or I'd never be allowed to get a bike then ;-)

Ew.... [24 Mar 2002|03:47pm]
I just saw the grossest thing in my life. I was chasing a fly around the room to try to kill it and it flew into a spider web. It was like in the movies...the spider rolled it up and started to eat it. The fly was making these sad buzzing noises. Then the noises stopped. I just saw a spider eat a fly. That is too gross...anyways back to studying microbiology.

Four months... [24 Mar 2002|11:43am]
[ mood | loved ]

Today is mine and Becky's four month anniversary, and it has been the best four months of my life. She has brought so much joy into my life. We have shared so many priceless memories and it is just incredible to think how blessed I am to have her. She is so wonderful and precious. Amour.

Speaking of blessings, yesterday I was blessed all day; it was so neat. First, Becky and I went out to eat with some missionaries from S. Africa. They were really neat people and gave me tips for the summer. Then Becky payed for all of us. She has such a giving heart. Then I got to spend a lot of the day with her. When I'm with her, the world is perfect; every second is so valuable. She went and got Chineese food from Hard Wok and split it with me. Then Andrew and I went out last night and he bought me dinner. Wow!!!

Today is sad b/c I have to study and I am really looking forward to tonight. We're going to the Macaroni Grill to eat. It it time to leave yet?

What I hate... [20 Mar 2002|09:49pm]
[ mood | angry ]

The one thing that I hate the most are hypocrites. I try to do the right thing, but I'm human and I don't profess to be perfect. Other people though mess up and then say that they have all the right answers. No one has all the answers so don't waste time and act like you do.

The second thing I can't stand are people who can dish it out but can't take it. If you are going to be a big man and talk, when someone says something back to you, take it and don't start crying. If you are going to play and start talking crap about people, when they talk crap back, you best just suck it up and go on; don't get all defensive and start cussing at them...Mr. Perfect. And I dare anyone to touch my pizza in the fridge.

My first time... [20 Mar 2002|05:03pm]
[ mood | mellow ]

Today was the eternal day of classes. I had Organic chemistry lab this afternoon and for the first time ever, our group finished first. I also got my Organic test back and I am struggling in that class. I blame it on the book; it is so old, it is published on papyrus. I looked through a new Organic book and it looked nice.

Next week is going to be...interesting. I'm not stressing, but I have a Micro test Mon. and a Pre-Cal and Speech Tues. Wed. afternoon I'm going home for a scholarship renewal interview to return Thurs. night and then go back home Fri. after classes for Easter break.

Tonight, some guys are going to Goodwill and then to see Resident Evil. I'm so ready for next semester.

I found out today that my love language is quality time. That just explains so, so much, especially when I'm sick.

I feel so alive... [19 Mar 2002|12:28pm]
[ mood | energetic ]

I was thinking and talking to Bec and I have came up with a philosophy (it will be included in my book, if I ever write one). You see people act crazy (wearing goggles and swimming in the floor *wink*)is b/c they are trying to hold on to their sanity and break routine. Life at school is one big routine. Go to class, do work, go to sleep....Spotanaity and goofy-ness is what keeps me from losing sight and stressing out. Speaking of stress, it is useless. When I have a lot coming up in a little time, I remember to take it one thing at a time and when it is over, I will look back and see that I accompolished a lot and stressing was a waste of emotion.

It is so funny to see people going around looking for roommates for next year. As far as I know, Andrew and I are going to room together. That is going to be really fun. From what Trae told me, we're going to try to live on his floor w/ Matt, John, and Tim. Partay 24/7.

I like going home, but I didn't realize how much I miss the guys here and being crazy with them. One of my favorite things to do though (besides hanging out w/ you, sweetheart) is ticking off Wayne...was that out loud??? hmmm. Don't stab the pencil in his board!!!!!

A Visit... [14 Mar 2002|11:19am]
[ mood | relaxed ]

It was really great to see Tif yesterday. We used to hang out all the time last semester and do a lot of stuff together. She left GW this semester. So she came down to visit yesterday and we went to Wal-Mart and then went to Sagebrush to eat with Andrew, Jamie, Jessi, and Jill. Even though I was feeling rough and still out of it, we had fun. Afterwards, they went clubbin and I came back here to take it easy.

I took the morning off to rest and try to get feeling better. I think it's working.

This weekend is going to be a blast. Zack is wrestling in the Ironman Tournament at NWHS. He is wrestling 112 in two divisions. I feel confident that he can medal in both divisions.

Ok, I've got to study for an Organic test tomorrow. Next week is going to be rough; microbiology test, an informative speech, western civ. test, and make-up work in Pre-Cal. AHHHH!!!!!

Whew... [12 Mar 2002|08:59pm]
[ mood | drained ]

What a day! I woke up and had no voice. The worst part is that I had a speech test today and I really didn't feel like studying last night or today so I bombed it. Trae, Jessi, Katie, Hans, and I went out tonight to do our thing. It was so funny at the restaurant b/c I had to keep going to the restroom to blow my nose, so I just finally came out with a roll of t.p. Plus I was saying crazy stuff b/c my mind isn't working too well. I threw some of my Wrap on the floor and Andrew had to pick it up; I'm sorry bro.
Then I went to GaP. I was listening to the testimonies of people who went on mission trips over spring break and my heart broke. I spent spring break serving me instead of using the opportunity to serve God. Ont medical mission trip was to Peru and I regret not going. It's my fault b/c I really didn't know about it, but Jessi is going to remind me next year and I am going to remind her b/c I would really like to go.
I thought I had a sinus infection, but it turns out that it could be anything from a cold to bronchitis. Hopefully all my "sinus infections" isn't chronic bronchitis. I've got some of my voice back though but it is really raspy and "sexy" ;-) Anyways, it's time for some Green Tea.
