Awesome summer so far!

Update time, yes its been merely a month since I’ve given a update with what has been happening. I’ll see if I can remember it all….

After coming home from school and finishing my 4th year of college, I can definitely feel things changing. The weekend after (Weekend of the June 26th) we went to Shawn’s for his graduation party. It’s definitely going to be different next year not living with those guys anymore. I just wanna finish school and get the hell outta there. I’m ready now.

4th of July weekend was awesome. Natalie and I drove up Thursday and stayed with my family in Port Austin. Then Saturday, when her family got there we spent some time with them in Caseville. Saturday evening we had a big 4th of July bash BBQ at our place and I DJed it. It went well everyone had a blast. My family is nuts!! Uncle Chris playing the guitar with a broom and Aunt Gina belt out the lyrics to Fred Bear. Oh and Uncle Leo taking his shirt off to Nelly’s Hot In Here. Oh man what a great nite. Sunday was awesome, the weather was great, perfect. Then the 4th of July, Monday it was crumby. They couldn’t do the fireworks that nite so we had to wait til Tuesday nite. Everything was great. Natalie and I stayed for the fireworks Tuesday nite then drove home b/c we both had to work early Wednesday morn. Great weekend.

The next weekend of July 8th was Natalie’s birthday. It was a full weekend again. Friday night we had a bunch of people over my house for her birthday. Everyone came out. Cousins Trisha and friends, Neil and Nikki, Shawn, T and friends, Laura, Nikki F, Jenna F, B-Eady, and a friend, Amanda B (devilplaygirl) and Chris, Sarah (boikbabe) and Mike (mmfr22), and my Sister (siebabyyy) had some friends come out too. We all had plenty to drink. Natalie definitely got the drunk award for her birthday!! LOL it was hilarious, having her put her head between my legs while I faced away from the toilet b/c I didnt wanna watch her puke and she’s just laughing as she pukes and I’m leaving over my back to flush it down the toilet. It was nuts. Then I made her a bed in the bathroom and watched over her til she was sobered a lil to go in to bed. Oh what a night!! She had a great time tho, from what she can remember! Haha! Love you! Happy Birthday!

Saturday when we finally woke up I took her shopping for her birthday, got myself a little something too. After shopping we went to her cousins graduation party. Later that night after the graduation Mike calls me up and is like I’m with yur cousins. I was so confused….anyways, long story short, he’s good friends with my cousin Nick’s other side of the family cousin John and his fiance Lisa. Ironic? Coincidental? Maybe this work is just that damn small!! Its nuts. So we went over John and Lisa’s along with others and just chilled outside. Good times. Sunday was Natalie’s uncle’s band, Hipshot, annual picnic at Riverbend. So much food!! It was a fun day though, really hot outside. Another fun action packed weekend!!

After a few crazy weekends in a row it doesnt stop there. Yes, the weeks are a bit slow and I’m just working about 50 hours a week. It’s really busy and crazy, but it pays the bills. So this weekend……

Friday night Natalie and I went with Sarah and Mike to see Wedding Crashers. Oh man it was great! That movie was hilarious, I’d reccommend all of you to going and seeing it. So funny. Saturday was just a lazy day for half of it. Then later that night was Aaron’s bachelor party. Fun night again. It was like a casino night with porno’s playin on the TV’s. And of course my grandpa was the life of the party. The lines coming out of his mouth was beyond belief. I love my grandpa, he’s such a happy happy guy, loves life with everything! I didn’t do very well, played crapes for most of the nite, lost my money, fuck gambling. I had a good time though. Jeremy, cousin Julie’s husband was powerdrinking, dragged me into that. I couldnt even tell you what I had in shots, oh man, just bout it all from Jacks, Absolut, Cuervo, Captains, Stoly, Hennessy…ugh. I had a good time…hehe.

Sunday was a lil rough waking up to, but I was able to manage. Went with Natalie and her family to the Tigers game as a surprise for her uncle’s 50th birthday. Didn’t work to well, but he was excited to see us all. Man was it hot as hell!! We had a hard time sitting in the sun. Tigers lost….bummer. After the game we were driving home and Joann called me b/c they were having trouble with their new clostes that Natalie helped them get from OL. So we decided to go over there. After a couple hours and a trip to Home Depot all of their closets were up. Awesome! Joann and Aaron cooked Natalie and I dinner. It was good stuff, sausage and breaded steak. After that they treated us out at Coldstone. Man is that ice cream so good. When we got back we popped a movie in and watch Eurotrip. It was an exhusting day and I couldn’t wait to just get home and get some sleep. I’m jealous of Joann and Aaron, I wanna be there!! They just recently moved into there brand new built house and their wedding is 2 weeks away. I’m happy for them. They’re doing well. I can’t wait til I’m at that stage in my life. I’m looking forward to the future!

So after one busy weekend after another I’m sitting here at work and I feel like I’m gonna fall over and pass out. Everything is just coming up so fast! And there’s still so much going on! Next weekend is a dinner date with Joann and Aaron Friday, Then Sunday is Natalie’s ma’s wedding, in which later that nite we’re staying in a hotel. Then the weekend after is Joann and Aaron’s wedding, Then Sunday is Warped Tour all day. Then the 1st weekend of August is my cousin Anna’s graduation party, then the weekend after that is CheeseburgerFest in Caseville. The next thursday after that we leave for Mackinac Island for 5 days. The weekend after that is Cedar Point……and well thats all we have planned so far. It’s been so crazy lately and trying to find time between all that and work is slim to none. I can’t remember the last time having a summer this jam packed!! I’m loving it!! One thing after another!!

I really can’t wait much longer for the next 2 weekends. I FREAKIN LOVE WEDDINGS!! It’s going to be a blast and in a sense I’m in both wedding parties. For Natalie’s ma’s wedding I won’t be walkin the aisle but I’ll be at the head table. And I’m standing up in Aaron and Joann’s wedding. It’s exciting and I’m ready to party with the families!! So much to look forward this summer. It’s great.

So there ya go, a lil update for the past month and the next month to come. I will update when I find the time and in the mean time don’t forget to check www.anthonypix.com for pictures of the many events. I try to get the pictures up as soon as possible. Ok time for me to jump back into work. I still got things I gotta do today that I haven’t gotten a chance to do yet. I do hope that everyone else’s summer is going great!!

Life is busy, but beautiful.

Ranting

Fuck this, I need to just fucking graduate and get the fuck out of this fuckin shit hole. I seriously can’t take it anymore and I need to just pull off 1 more forever fucking year here. BULLSHIT!!

So yeah, my boss fires my only help as a network admin/IT support and adds like 100034509243580943285 more things to fucking do. Yeah so I wrote this list up the day he fired Matt, good fellow friend (FUCK, be glad you’re not here anymore, even tho i miss ya). THis list had about 50 different things that needed to be completed. Well just to let ya know, even though I was doing things on the list, I’d get more calls that would come up and I’d have to do more things. So basically the past 2 weeks I have been mad fuckin crazy everywhere doing a shit load of fucking things. There’s way to much to do here and the turn around time and shit they fucking want out of it isn’t happening. I worked a 46 hour week last week and got bitch at for working overtime, never took lunches b/c I was so fucking busy, cept 1 day they had free chicken shack that I got, but i brought it back to my office. So yeah more bullshit and bullshit.

The 1st day I came back to work for school I gave them my list of days off for the summer since I’m allowed to take 10 paid vacation days in the summer. I gave them 5 days. And well I took 2 of them for 4th of July weekend. Mind you I busted my ass to make sure that everything was going to be ok before I left for my vacation. So I get back from my beautiful fuckin vacation where I wish I fuckin was right now and I’ve been working crazy. I haven’t stopped. (Monday was off for the whole dealership and I took Tuesday off) So yeah I worked Wednesday and Thursday so far this week. Remember that list I told you about? FUCKING DONE! Yeah I did everything that they could possibly fucking think off and caught up with EVERYFUCKINTHING! Yeah BULLSHIT! I worked til 6:30 on Wednesday, and 8:30 last night. But I did everything. Ebay is up to date, I wrote my own fucking script generator for e-FUCKING-bay that works flawless, and I taught 3 guys how to use it, it fucking works. I got all of the followup letters printed, correctly, and up to date, as far as I know all computers are good, because I fixed every FUCKING one of them. On top of all the side projects and bull shit. OH OH OH and the fucking server went down last week and we lost half of our drives. And FUCKING partsmarts isn’t on back up because we have it on disc, and uploading all 7 discs back on the server is a bitch, it doesn’t fucking go without messing up. So I found another resolution that works but takes 6 hours to get 1 discs back online. I’m on disc 6 right now. In the mean time I loaded Partsmarts all everyones computer so they can still use it until I get it back and on the network.

And all the back up tapes are working and are on FUCKIN time. So yeah when I came into work from my vacation on Wednesday I had 23 fucking voicemails!! OH and I fixed EVERY FUCKIN problem on all 23 voicemails. UGHU! So I’ve busted my ass like none fuckin other and I’ve been crazy. So yeah I’ve been feelin good because everything that they wanted done is done. And yesterday I asked if I could leave at 2pm today. The wanna-be-boss told me to ask my boss tomorrow, but she doesnt care. So fine. I get in today, do whatever has come up so far and FUCK, there isnt really anything to do because I did EVERYFUCKINTHING!! FUCKARS! So I went to talk to my boss to ask him about getting a new order of computers because we’re behind date and in August all but 11 of our computers are not under warranty anymore. And then he proceeds to tell me something like this….

Boss: “Well we can’t get new computers because you’re slacking on getting me a list what we have right now.”
Me: “I was just asking if we were gonna do it soon, I was just telling you where we are with it”
Boss: “I had asked you before to get me a list of what we have and you never did so actually you haven’t done anything”
Me: “I can get the list today, its not hard to get”
Boss: “Well you need to get on top of things, you’ve been slow lately, I’ve been giving you high priorities and you’re taking to long to do them”
Me: “I try to do what ever I can when it comes up in the priority that I can, I can’t make everything a high priority”
Boss: “I don’t see what takes you so long to get things done around here”
(Wanna-Be-Boss walks in)
Wanna-Be-Boss (WAB): “Anthony and I were talkn about the back up tapes and he suggested a better way to do them, we could use external hard drives”
Boss: “I dont thing there is anything wrong with our system now, if you guys would remember to change the tapes daily then we wouldn’t have this problem”
Me: “Well I’m not gonna change the tapes if its still going from the day before, it makes no sense”
Boss: “There’s nothing wrong with the system, you just aren’t on top of things around here”
WAB: “Anthony also asked last night if he could leave earlier today”
Boss: “I think that this is a problem. Everytime Anthony isn’t here there is problems and I was very disappointed that you were on vacation for the last 2 days and we have things around here that need attention to. This is why Matt was let go, because nothing gets done around here”
Me: “I don’t think thats a good excuse for letting him go, there’s a lot of shit around here to do and computer issues come up randomly throughout the day and some take a few hours, can’t help that, its how they are. I do as much as I physically possibly can. I think we need someone else”
Boss: “He never did much around here and I know that there is plenty of time to do things around here. And all you ask for is time off, we need you around here and you’re not here, thats not a very good trait of a good employee”
Me: (shaking my head) “I do what I can Wayne and I don’t know what else to say, so…..”
(moment of silence)
WAB: “I have a few things I need to talk about with you”
Boss: “You can go Anthony”
Me: (Just walked away, not one word, so fuckin pissed!!)

Does he not realize how much I fucking do?? Then I get a phone call like 5 mins later from my boss, “You’re not leaving early, I want you here til 5pm” I just hung up. UGH!!

So fuck all this shit and school, could I not be in a worst fucking position right now? Getting paid dick? Schools fucking me over and yet I’m so fucking close.

Seriously the day I leave this place and school I will be the happiest guy evar!! FUCK YOU RCJ and all you dumb ass retardant employees, my days are numbered and so are yours. You’re a drowning shitty runned operation and isnt gonna make it much longer. I don’t really regret things in life, but if I had to, this would prolly be one of them.

Well thats the bullshit right now and ya know what? Do you think I wanna do anything productive? Nope, so I’m watchin Family Guy and fucking around on the internet, if he doesn’t think I’m doing anything around here then why bother.
FUCK YOU!!

(on a lighter note)

Happy 20th Birthday Natalie!!

I love you beautiful, and I need you, badly

Can’t wait til 5pm, now, to see you
