So today I voted for the first time in my life. And I lost. I’m registered as a republican but I was undecided for the longest time. There are some things that I agree with on behalf of Obama’s side and other things that I agreed with on Romney’s side but it came down to what was most important to me and at the last second (literally) I voted for Romney. Now that it is clear Obama won, thanks to all of my social networks, I would just like to elaborate on some things. For my fellow republicans that are so pissed off, no we aren’t going down the drain. You can shut up now. The president does not have that much power to just screw everyone over, there is congress you know that right? And for the people who bashed Romney saying “I’m moving if Romney wins, we will all be screwed.” Like no, no we won’t actually. They have to agree on a bill before they can pass it with other people. I was okay with either candidate winning I just favored Romney more. It’s sort of funny how this campaign journey between these to candidates was the most expensive one yet (talking billions here) and yet Obama knows how to spend that money in the right fashion but doesn’t know how to lower our deficit, only double it. And during the debates I would just like to point out that both candidates ran circles around questions. Nobody who is trying to get something is going to say the truth. Everybody talks themselves up. In a job interview you don’t say “yeah I’m lazy and I hate working but I need money so I can buy weed and alcohol” because you wouldn’t have a job. So they both ran circles around questions it wasn’t just Romney. I’m interested in seeing how these next four years will play out. Gosh, 4 years. That feels like a long time. Ill be 22. Hot dayum! I bet mad cash that one of Romney’s sons will run. Mad cash.
Well actually only Friday night was epic but that’s because I chose to be a sober freak on Saturday and here’s why! So Friday evening we drove up to Santa Barbara and parked our car in a lot really far away but it was cheaper than the other places. We changed into our costumes in the car and then wanted to grab dinner because we were all starving. Well dinner plans fell through and instead we kept drinking to get full. Bad idea kids. I normally can be alright with 20 shots and Friday night I probably drank like 13 or something and got so completely shit faced drunk. I had one meal Friday and it was at 11 am. We drank in the car and then packed water bottles and headed for del playa. That was the last thing I remember doing on Friday. Here is what I was told the following morning. Apparently I started running up to every guy and twerking on them and I mean every guy. And then hooked up with about half of them. And then this super buff guy caught my attention (naturally) and we started making out in the middle of the street and then he asked me to go with him to his frat house to jacuzzi. I said yes and started walking with him and luckily one of the guys in our group noticed at the right time that I had run off and he spotted me and saved me and then almost got in a fight with the guy because he had to steal me away from him. From then on I was being held by a guy at all times so I wouldn’t run off. A cop went up to the guy holding me down making sure I was alright because he was worried about me. That’s when you know I reached an all time low. After walking around my group decided to hand me over to a sober guy that they knew and have him take care of me and give me a place to stay at his frat house. So me and this guy apparently were sleeping outside on a couch and out of nowhere I threw up all over the ground. HAHAHAHAHA!!!!! I’ve never thrown up in all of my 6 years of partying hard. That wasn’t tolerated so my “bodyguard” called a messenger to get me back to my group because I couldn’t stay there any longer. I met up with my original group and we started walking back to the car. Coldest walk of my life. I was literally shaking the whole time so they convinced one of the guys to give me his shirt and he did. Nicest thing. He walked half naked in the coldest weather just for me. We got back to the car and got situated to sleep. By the way this is a car smaller than mine and I was surrounded by 4 boys. I had to sit on a side seat because I probably threw up 8 times outside the car door. All of my throw up was liquid because I literally had nothing in my stomach. Towards the end it was just dry heaving and my friend held my hair while I threw up. As we were trying to sleep and keep the alcohol down (me) 3 cops show up to our car flashing lights at us. Apparently it’s illegal to sleep in your car. The driver was talking to the cops and instead of giving us a ticket he thought we were “the most responsible people.” Cool cop. We passed out and then at about 7 am we all wake up and start driving to Denny’s. We grab breakfast and then check into our motel and kill some time. Then met up with a friend and hit up the beach and grabbed lunch and then came back and started getting ready for round 2. Our 11 other friends who also came up from o.c were in the motel room next to ours so we were all getting ready together pretty much. My stomach was still not 100% so I decided to not drink and the thought of alcohol made me gag so it was a wise decision. They all pregamed and then we went to the bus stop. First bus came and it was so full and all of a sudden a fight breaks out. A humongous black old crack head that was stronger than Arnold Schwarzenegger starts punching this poor guy who just took the blows. Meanwhile this girl is spraying him with pepper spray. That guy got kicked off and then almost threw punches at the 30 of us waiting at the stop. Another bus came and got us and we went to del playa. A crazy experience sober. Thousands of drunk people all on their level. I tried to watch over my group like they did for me. 3 people out of our group of 20 got tickets for possession of an opened substance. Stupid shit. Santa Barbara is rich because of this I know it. They probably made close to a million dollars in 2 days from this ticket. Everyone was grumpy and we all just wanted to go back to the motel and have an after party. We get the troops together and call for a cab. We waited 30 minutes for a cab that never showed. Then called another company. Waited. Nothing. Then called another company. Waited. Nothing then hailed for a cab and got one with no problems. 12 people fit in a tiny mini van cab. We head back to the motel and some annoying ass dumb bitch who bothered me the whole night decides she wants to sleep in our room. She’s the type of girl that’s annoying as fuck when she’s drunk. Constantly reminding me to watch over her and telling me she’s drunk and wondering why guys are touching her. Like girl you aren’t wearing any clothes and your drunk. It’s a guys dream. And then she starts getting close and touchy touchy with a guy from my group. That was sort of weird and awkward for me to see. Back at the room she comes in wearing pajamas and her pillow in her hand and lays right next to the guy in our bed. Then this group of five guys walk in and start talking and she pretends like she owns the place telling them to leave and what they can and cannot do in our room. I had to leave. I grabbed food with some guys and came back hoping she would be gone with her pillow. Nope. She followed the guy around the whole night. I’m okay with them hooking up with girls but this girl wanted to sleep on a bed that was being slept on by 5 other people. Like where does she expect to sleep? We had one bed and 5 people and little floor space and I didn’t want to sleep next to them making out in my ear. We kept throwing her pillow out everytime she would leave and after 5 times of this she got the hint. We all slept dandy for the 5 hours we got and woke up and packed up to check out. Met up with some friends and had lunch at the original freebirds and then hit the road at about noon and got home at 2:30. Immediately took a 5 hour nap and then woke up ate and carved pumpkins with the Riciglianos. Naturally I carved the Audi rings. That was my awesome weekend. And although it was expensive I would do it again and get shit faced drunk again because I had the greatest night on Friday and was miserable being sober on Saturday.
Lawl at Obama for calling rich people “fatcats” and saying that he is going to tax the rich (I am not rich but rich to him is $250,000 and my family makes over that therefore he is taxing us) when in reality most of the funding from his campaign came from the rich. You fuckin idiot. And yes I know Romney is not perfect and I could point out some things I don’t like about him too but he’s the better option for me and that is why I’m republican. And I’m so excited to vote. Politics get me really riled up and it’s so frustrating to hear about all of the social programs Obama plans on using. No I do not approve of social programs. We have 28 million people out of jobs because you gave them money to live. I met this guy who is declared “unemployed” and he gets way more money from the government then he did working at his job so he just sits at home all day. I didn’t go off on him but that’s that shit I don’t like. Mexicans who come to the country and get free healthcare. Are you fucking kidding me? They do not deserve that. If you can’t afford to live here and pay the necessary bills then leave. No one is saying “please stay Mexican, I love when my tax dollars pay for your broken arm because you can’t get your shit together and get a real job and you blame it on being Mexican when in reality everybody has equal opportunity to do and be whoever they want to be, it depends how hard you want it.” I’ve never heard anyone say that ever. So just leave. This isn’t the country for you. My friends sister broke her wrist and had to wait in the lobby for a long ass time before she could meet with a doctor because of Mexicans. And when I classify Mexicans I mean the ones who are aliens. Obama also has had four years to go through with his plan that he had in ‘08 and look where we are now! You didn’t get shit done. You promised to lower our debt but instead gained a trillion dollars in debt every year. But you want another chance at being president? You plan on taxing businesses by 5 more percent but businesses are what give jobs to the 28 million people unemployed in which you promised to lower that number but instead increased it. But you want another shot at being the president? You had four years to do everything you promised and you didn’t do it. Lets give this chance at being president to someone else. Your “plan” failed once and it will fail again.
YAAAAAAA IT IS
Jason: so yeah what’s your favorite kind of Audi?
Me: obviously the Audi r8 gt with the v10 in it.
Jason: ohh I’m not sure I know what that one is.
Jason: oh wait is that the sports car?
Jason: oh my favorite is the R6. I like the suspension, it’s a little tighter and it’s more sportier.
Okay. What the hell. There is no such thing as an r6. And if your thinking of an RS6 then it’s actually not a sports car. It’s a luxury sedan. This is after he told me he was a huge fan of cars and likes Audi’s. Kid knows nothing.
I remember the time before cell phones-a peaceful, enigmatic, unsophisticated era. I say enigmatic because you never knew exactly when someone was going to call you back; it was a complete enigma. I also remember the time when mobile phones started to ingratiate themselves into our lives.
Talked to a recovering addict today. In 5th grade he tried marijuana for the first time and was hooked on it. 6th grade he did heroin, speed and Coke. In 7th grade he did shrooms and acid. He was addicted to all of these drugs for 5 years and when he quit with the drugs he became an alcoholic. He is now 3 years sober and is writing a manuscript for his own movie. He is also my coworker and I’m very honored that he opened up to me and it just made me realize how lucky I am to not be addicted to any of those things. I do drink but not as much as people assume. It’s amazing that he didn’t overdose while doing all of those drugs and I loved hearing his story. Don’t be an addict!!
