So recently I've learned that I am impatient. I have no tolerance for ignorance and I have no reason to deal with stupidity. I don't deny that I have made some decisions in my life that aren't the most educated choices but ultimately they effect no one but me. I have spent the last few days with family members who speak their opinion too often and have no regard for others. Their voices full of contempt for things that they do not understand. I respect that they have choices but to disregard the opinions of others and look down upon them makes it difficult for me to respect anything they say. There is a wide spectrum to observe and they are obtuse in their sight. My facade can only go on for so long.

I started my application to the Art Institute International of Kansas City Culinary program. It seems a bit different from applying to a university. I hope it turns out well.

I realized in these past few days that though I have only resided in Lawrence a short while, it has become my home. Everything I love is there and no where else can quite compare. My friends are my family and the house on 26th is my home.

I wish life were easier. The dynamics of living prove to be too much for me sometimes.

It has been a while since I last wrote. I just took a short break I guess.

I made a Facebook page for my cat Alice today. She is one popular feline. I really do love her.

Weekends have been busy lately. Friends visiting from the city of Emporia have kept me occupied. Also, the Barber and I have been tackling some serious video game quests. Resident Evil 5 and Oblivion have been consuming most of our time. Speaking of the Barber, he and I will be roommates as of tomorrow. It won't be much of a change considering he is here most nights but making it official will be lovely.

I have been watching a lot of movies. Just recently, a friend and I delved into our childhood and watched The Neverending Story. It is a lot different watching it as an adult, but the nostalgia is overwhelming.

Anime, though I never thought I would get in to it, has lately been prevalent on my television screen. Mostly classics such as Akira, Ninja Scroll, and Princess Mononoke. They are all stunningly eye-catching and the animation is impeccable. It seems to be an untapped well in my life and is definitely worth exploring further.

On a recommendation from a friend, I started reading a book series by Robert Jordan entitled, The Wheel of Time. From what I have read so far, Jordan's writing seems to be a tribute to J.R.R. Tolkien's genre and style of writing. There are 12 books to this series so it is a large task for me to take on. But, it so far it seems to be unquestionably well written.

The first session of the Dungeons and Dragons campaign is nearly here. I know in my previous post I had stated that the end of September would be the starting date, but our DM has been busy. I started my character sketch today and I'm hoping that the simplicity of the art won't deter from the strength of my character. After many nights of contemplation, I chose to be an Elven ranger. We also have a Paladin and a Druid. It should prove to be a worthwhile campaign.

Searching for a job has proved futile. 3 months and 37 applications later I am still jobless and now, nearly penniless. It is beyond aggravating to want to work and not be able to. Hopefully fortune will soon shine is glowing warmth upon my life.

The Christmas season is nearing and as each day is crossed off the calendar, my mood slowly rises into a state of pure bliss. The decorations are soon going to make their way out of the boxes and cheer will burst from the seams of my home. Just this evening, the Barber and I watched The Muppet Christmas Carol in the hopes of sparking the Christmas spirit. I'm feeling merrier by the minute.
