At midnight Jessa & I were saying goodbye to each other. After she left i did my journal and sat on the computer for a while until I put in Benjamin Button for a while.
I woke up at 8ish for some reason (even thought I didn’t have to watch Abby). I went on the computer for a while & then cleaned my closet and a little bit of my room. I also did a load of laundry as well as washed my sheets & vacuumed the upstairs. When that was all done I loaded some new music on my phone. Then I started watching Devil before Tyler Burke texted me asking if I watched his short that I have been meaning to watch. So I did that. When that was done I talked to him for a while and then my parents got home. I cut my dads hair because he needed it. Then I sat around watching TV until it was time for me to leave.
I went to St. Jude church in New Lenox to tape an episode of “New Lenox Eats.” It was a lot of fun. Don, Sue, Sally, & John were all there, so we had a good time. We had a ton of food that was free, so I went to town on it all. After the taping I helped Don unload the car and also got some professional lights from Sue. Then I was invited to go to The American Legion (bar). I was hesitant, but Don pressured me into it. So I went. It was funny because as soon as I walked in I saw my Uncle Miles and Richie. I was back and forth with them and then the NLCTV people. I was the youngest person there because it’s kind of an older bar (which seems like it would suck), but there were a handful of people who bought me drinks. So I’m glad I went. Don drove me home afterwards. I took a shower when I got home & then went on the computer & now I’m doing my journal a little early because I’m kind of tired.
People I interacted with: Jessa, Abby, Devin, Mom, Dad, Don, Sally, John, Sue, Uncle Miles, & Richie.

I woke up at 8 to watch Abby. After I put her on the bus I filled out some Valentine cards for people at work. I thought I started at 12:30, but I actually started at 2:30. So I just sat on the computer for a while. Then I watched AFV, Jimmy Kimmel, some Conan’s, and Modern Family. Then I got ready for work. I was an assembler today. So I built like 8 bikes in the time I was there and also helped out with other things.
After work I waited around to talk to David, but he was busy with customers, so I just left. I picked up some gyro’s on the way home. Then I watched Signs while I ate. After the movie was done I went on the computer for a while and posted the rest of my Valentine’s stuff. Then I watched a little TV. Jessica came over around 11:20. She took all of her stuff.

I woke up at 8 to watch Abby. After I put her on the bus I drove to Jessa’s house so I could give her her Valentines Day gift as well as talk to her for a little bit. After being there for a while I went to my optometrist to pick up my “new” frames. I was there for literally 5 minutes. Then I drove home. When I got home I I watched I Am Legend, then I went on the computer. Then I started Blade: Trinity. In the middle of that I had dinner. My mom chilimac for me, I also talked with my parents for a while about how my dad slipped on ice on Friday and that was a great laugh. He said when he slipped her threw his lunchbox, but still held onto the handle and his food was all over the street.

Friday Feb. 8th, 2013
At midnight I was watching The Dark Knight Rises.
I woke up at 8 to watch Abby. After I put her on the bus I finished TDKR and got ready for work. Today I worked with Jaime in wireless, sort of. She was asked to do other things around the store because David was gonna be coming in and they (Walmart) didn’t want three people in wireless. But David called off and I was in there alone. I held it up though. I was pretty productive. I helped customers & organized the prepaid cabinet. I also got to the bottom of a messed up contract as well as helped out a drunk old guy who I thought just had problems walking and then turned him into the cops that were at the store.
After work I came home and showered. Then I ate spaghetti and sat on the computer. Then I felt like watching I Am Legend, but Devin lost it. So I settled for another movie I hadn’t seen in a while (V for vendetta). Then I got on the computer and downloaded some music.
Something else that happened today which is hard for me, as well as Jessica is I asked for us to go on a break. Over the past few months I felt our relationship was becoming very one sided. That’s all I’m gonna say right now. We’re still dating and I love her with all my heart. But my head just isn’t in the relationship.
People I interacted with: Abby, Jaime, Peter, Arne’, Dad, Mom, & Devin.
Thursday Feb. 7th, 2013
At midnight Jessa & I started 1408. I got tired pretty fast and went to bed.
I woke up at 8 to watch Abby. Today was kind of funny. After I wake up I usually let herself get ready. Even though I’m her brother I don’t wanna be in the room when she gets dressed, that’s weird. So I leave her alone. But I heard her fussing and whining while I was downstairs. When I came to her room she was having a hard time getting a dress on. The clear straps that some girls clothes have were tangled to both sides of her neck and she couldn’t get it to fit right. So I had to help her. It was pretty funny.
After I put her on the bus I went on the computer for a while. then I watched the last half of The Butterfly Effect before waking up Jessa. We watched a little bit of Bridesmaids before getting up to get ready to leave for the day. We went to Paneras for lunch with Jessica’s mom because she was at the New Lenox library for a meeting. After lunch Jessa left with her mom and I went to Starbucks to do some writing. I got a bunch of pages done and feel like it was a successful session. After writing I went to Walmart to say hey and get some weather stripping for my car. I couldn’t find any, but I did do some Valentines Day shopping.
After Walmart I came home and ate some spaghetti. Then I spent some time on the computer before talking with David & then Joy on the phone. Both are going through relationship issues that I needed to lend my advice to. Then I’ve been on the computer since & now I’m doing my journal.
People I interacted with: Jessa, Abby, M-Dawg, Jaime, Peter, David, Joy, Mom, & Dad.
Wednesday Feb. 6th, 2013
At midnight Jessa and I were looking for something to watch. I tried Netflix on my Apple TV, but I had to do updates to it. Then we tried my PS3 and I had to update that as well. They both took over a half hour to do. So we watched Tosh.0 and then decided to watch Can’t Hardly Wait.
I woke up at 8 to watch Abby. After I put her on the bus I took a tiny nap before I had to get ready for work. I was on the refresh team today at work. Which all that entailed was zoning the entire shampoo/soap/hair product/nails section of the store. I had to be strict on how many of a product was out and could fit on a shelf. It does better the store, but with my knowledge and abilities there I felt like my day was wasted. Through the day I found out that I’m not gonna be a regular in wireless anymore. I’m gonna be trained and have a primary (main focus) in electronics. Which means a lot more work. However the pay is a lot higher. Im just a little upset I won’t be working with David and Jaime as much as I use to.
After work I picked Jessa up from my house and then we went to Orland Mall. I got 2 new pairs of pants and Jessica got some stuff as well. Then we went to the Apple Store and talked with Jonny for a little bit. Then we came back to my house and I took a shower. After that we made some food and watched Modern family while we ate. Then we watched a little Conan and now I’m on the computer doing my journal.

At midnight Jessa & I were watching Looper. I broke my glasses before watching the movie & I was hoping watching it would make me feel better.
I woke up at 8 to watch Abby. The fucking bus driver drove past my house, so I had to drive Abby to school. When I got home I did most of the slideshow that Jaime wants me to make for Isabella. Then Jessa woke up and we watched a few episodes of Tosh.0. Then we got ready to leave for the day. We went to Pop’s for lunch and ate way too much. After that we went to Best Buy and I got some RAM for my Mac to make it a little faster between programs. Then we came back home and I installed the RAM while Jessa napped.
When she woke up we watched the new episode of Grey’s Anatomy and then I rested my eyes for a while. When I got up we tried to decide what to do with the rest of our night. We decided to go see Warm Bodies, so we did that & it was very good. Then we picked up White Castles and came back home to eat it. While we ate we watched Whitney and then sat on our computers for a bit & now I’m doing my journal.

I’m not 100% on what we actually did today. But I know we stayed busy and never got pulled. For lunch I came home and sat on the computer listening to the new Fall Out Boy song. WhenI went back to work David and I organized the room a little to look cleaner.

I woke up at 8am to watch Abby. After I out her on the bus I watched the end of Surviving Christmas. Then I flipped through channels and texted Jessica more.

Then i came home for lunch and just hung out. I drove my mom to the autoshop as well because our car screwed up AGAIN. So they just bought a new one.
When I went back to work I was in wireless and I got to work with both David & Jaime for a while. It was so much fun. We were laughing so much and having a great time. I miss when we all don’t work together. I eventually ended up being there alone, but I kept busy resetting mods and cleaning. Jessica came in at the end of my shift, when I clocked out we shopped a little before leaving. When we got to my house we talked to my mom for while. then we came to my room and we’re just hanging out and on our devices.

At midnight I was on the computer. Then I decided to start Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
I woke up at 8 to watch Abby. After I put her on the bus I finished Eternal Sunshine. Then I watched a couple episodes of Conan. After that I went on the computer for a bit & then got ready to leave. I went to Walmart just to say “Hi” to Jaime because I hadn’t seen her in so long. However I ended up staying a lot longer and didn’t get to go to Starbucks like I had planned. While there I got a call from Don asking if I could help him and Sally tonight and in return I’d get $100, so I accepted. I texted Adan because I really wanted to see him today, he was working, however he said it would be OK if I went to Walgreens and hung out for a bit. So I did. We had a good talk about writing, relationships, and other stuff.
Then I went to Jessica’s house. She was upset that I was gonna be leaving her earlier tonight. I know I messed up by changing our plans and I really am sorry. But we went to the mall and did some shopping. We both got a few things as well as stopped by a cupcakery. The cupcakes were alright. Then we went back to her house and hung out for a bit before I had to leave. I went to Sally’s house and she was making dinner for Don & I . She made steak nacho’s, chips & guac, and chili. We were there to help her for her job. She needed to send out something like 2,500 letters, so Don and I had to put them into envelopes and seal them. Doesn’t sound like much to do, but it took 4 and a half hours and the easiest $100 I’ve ever made. After that I came home and showered. Now I’m on the computer and doing my journal.
People I interacted with: Abby, Jaime, Peter, Adan, Tommy, Jessa, M-Dawg, Sara, Sally, & Don.

We went to Houlihan’s for lunch and it was very yummy. After eating we went to JC Penny’s so I could look for a new dress shirt. After a while of looking I found an awesome blue shirt (no business blue, blue blue) and a tie I really liked. Jessica also liked a tie and it was cheap, so I got that as well. Then we came back to my house and hung out for a little bit before she had to leave. After she left I pooped, and then went on the computer for a bit. Then I talked with my parents for a while about them getting a gun (I don’t approve).

David & I also had an awesome nerd talk with a customer who really knew his technologies. I stayed at work for my lunch because our Verizon rep came in and taught David & I a bunch of stuff and told us some numbers we needed to hit to beat last years sales. My last 2 and a half hours were pretty boring. I think I sat at a desk for 1 hour and did nothing at all.

So I met up with him and he gave me a project for the day. I had to put fast track on ALL the stack bases throughout the store. It wasn’t hard to do, just time consuming and a lot of work on my knees and butt. But it was a laid back day. I helped in wireless a few times and also got to chat with the store manager a bit. He’s putting me on a big project in the next week or two. For lunch I came home and Jessa made some potatoes for us. So I had a sandwich and potatoes. While we ate we watched Whitney. When I went back to work I finished my project.
After work I went to Sally’s house for an “In The American Kitchen” shoot. It was a lot of fun. Sally bought us Nancy’s Pizza and I thought it was really good. I never eat deep-dish because I don’t like the sauce on top, but I devoured 2 slices. I was there from 715-10:15. We only filmed for an hour, but we all talked for the rest of the time. It was a ton of fun. When I came home I went on the computer & now I’m doing my journal.

I woke up at 9:20 and got ready for work. I was an assembler today and had a handful of tasks. I built a crib, a couple strollers, 2 rocking chairs, 2 pack n plays, and 2 of those walker things babies use. Then I had to put them all on the floor zip-tieing them to a platform. So I was a busy guy. After I was done with all of that I fixed some clothing tables that Aaron has been asking me to fix literally for two months. I’ve just been so busy with other things.
