11:05am: Happy Easter!
So Saturday morning mum and I went yd sales. nothing great this week. So I bought us some breakfast and later on mum and i went back to the park so she could look around. nothing much she was not impressed. So went back home i started to watch a movie and fell asleep in the chair and then an hour or so later i woke up and mom was taking a nap for a few hours. Sunday Morning came around HAPPY EASTER!!! It was kind of rainy all day. But the feeling of a new day with Jesus in it was upon us. So everyone got an easter basket,

I got one  photo IMG_2720_zpsf53qer63.jpg

The Question did i like it? Thinking about it I have to say Yes I did. Was the movie dark yes it was. I had to think about it for almost 24 hours and I have to say it was a very good adult comic book film. Its not for kids at all. This is an adult superman and an adult batman. Did Ben do a good job as Batman? I thought he did well. It was dark and it had a lot of action in it. I do not want to say too much about it but I give the film 2.5 stars. Is it a film I would like to revisit again anytime soon? No not for a long time. But i did read that a few theater chains have this 4D Technology and its almost like a ride would i revisit the film like that? I would.

2:20pm: Easter Break
I started my Easter Break yesterday afternoon. Went down to the park for awhile to see what it was all about. Arts and Crafts mostly. Had some dinner later on while spending time with mom and watched the rest of an Easter movie and went to bed. Today I woke up with an awful headache but we went out to hit a few yd sales. nothing there for me today just a lot of junk. came home and yes i put my PJs on and i took a nap in the chair! So far a nice relaxing lazy break!

19th March 2016

6:15pm: This saturday has been a nice one. I worked yesterday till 4 then had a nice evening off. Went to bed. Today we went out for yd sales but found nothing so instead I went to the movies to go see

 photo zootopia_zpsizdartxy.jpg

I have wanted to see this film for 2 weeks so far. I thought it was a good movie. Its more of Disney Grownup film. There were many kids and no one really laughed. It was more aimed for adults. So much they tackled, race, drug use, stereotypes, how life is not always fun, how the real world is. Its the issues thats going on today. Would i take kids to see this movie, I guess i would but not my first choice. But still a good disney film. Well Done Disney for a nice adult themed movie!

Had a nice after dinner walk with Bono and enjoying the day off.

15th March 2016

3:52pm: So I feel a lot has happened over the last 2 weeks or so. Working a lot, got a raise at work up to $10 an hour. I also with work (i want to bring this up first i am not settling down at work meaning i know that this will not be my job forever) I thought about it and today I opened up my 401k. I know that I am almost 2 yrs 2 late to start but I have to look out for me, my life in the future. I just want to start preparing now for later on in my life. Okay done with the work stuff! We had a yard sale over the weekend and that was a lot of work to set up. But we made over $400 from it in only a few hours.

I got some goodies in the mail last week that I had ordered from amazon I bought a collection of SUSPENSE Radio shows and a collection of DRAGNET radio shows. 120 shows total for under $22..one day I will post all my photos.

Tomorrow we are going on a day cation down to Myrtle Beach for the day. Looking forward to it because its spring and we both need a break to have some fun!
Hope to report some fun stories on the trip later!

5:56pm: March for ya
Have not updated last last month! The month of February it went fast! Nothing new at all with my job search (or endless job search) nothing really new with working...I did end up getting some upcoming dates off. February was the month of Valentines Day. If you know in the past I was always upset that day because I was always single. Well I told my self its going to be different. Try to give out love that day (i had to work anyways) to everyone that you meet. I did that. I even had lunch with my mom, my treat! I bought her some flowers and some heart cakes. She gave me a tv show on dvd and a big yoda that says "yoda one for me" it took me 3 days to understand that! Haha! I could go on with a few more details about work but i think that i will pass. nothing bad i just do not want to talk about my job almost every journal. oh yeah so turns out that i have used some of my money from my BB8 i used it for an iTunes card and an amazon card. do not want to use my credit card because of lack of money i am making and one less bill to pay. so i have some items in my cart. wondering what is worth getting. i am also trying to really enjoy what i already own. whats old is new again type of thing. hope this is a good month!

11:26am: Middle of February 2016
This month's new years goal is to learn something new so I enrolled in an online free class called Film and Philphiophy and it runs for 6 weeks.

First week is Introduction and "Inception" -The Experience Machine and Free Will
Second week is "The Birds" - Psychology and Desire
Third week is "Match Point" -Ethical Subjectivism
Forth Week is "District 9" -People aren't Objects: The Categorical Imperative
Fifth Week is "The Hunger Games" -Exploitation and Alienation
Sixth Week is Conclusion and "Groundhog Day" -Happiness

We are on week 2. I feel like I have learned a lot in the short time i have taken the class. I am really enjoying it! Like that its free!

The job hunt is kind of slow. I applied to a few jobs, some really big jobs also such as Trailer Editor with Disney. So I shall see. Work is kind of slow, its something. I am trying not to let that job bother me much anymore and not to put all my energy into thinking about the job i currently have. Its not right nor healthy.

I have looked into taking a trip somewhere but not sure where I want to go. Just to have something in mind would be great, something to look forward to. But then I do know that you do not have to spend $$$$$$ to have something to look forward to.

6:06pm: The Choice
Went to see

 photo choice_zps62vidhqz.jpg

It was an alright movie. It was filmed here in 2014. They made NC look nice, but kind of unreal because everyone was drinking every weekend, sail the own boats, have parties (cook outs) every single weekend. Drive unnamed old looking trucks. Yeah thats what NC really looks like. No not really. I really went to go support my friends who worked on the film. it was a good time waster film.

3rd February 2016

10:45am: Wow! One Month and a Day Later!
So much to speak about in the timespan of a month. So I'll try to give the highlights out.

It was a month of change for me. To get rid of items i did not want anymore. Work gave many people lots of time off for the month so i had lots of time on my hands so I did some projects. Such as got thru my closet and label ever bin, clean up the closet. Get rid of clothes I did not want anymore or did not fit me. For winter and summer. I even spent a day rearranging my room. So my room looks super amazing now. I even unhooked my TV because i was not using it anymore. I only use my projector now. My room is now a stress free place to be.

On the DVD front I picked up (as a birthday gift) the final box set of the hobbit film. I spent many days viewing those films and going into LOTR extended cuts (still have the final film to go) I also picked up (as another birthday gift) the final volume of the Young Indiana Jones series. And for many days i watched the final films then going into the feature films. I have to say I really liked the full on Indiana Jones experience! So much to learn and so much history! And now i am going thru the history channel shows of each Young Indiana Jones film. Lots of watch! I also picked up on digital "Exodus Gods and Kings" Have not watched that yet. I also used the rest of my iTunes card to get HBO Now for the month. They had a 7 hour cut of The Godfather and the U2 concert from December so I thought it was well worth it.

Looking for work is still an on going process, but i understand it will be a slow process. Nothing happens over night. So during this month i had a friend of mine to remake my resume once again into more of a professional resume. And looking for other work thru other web sites which as now seems like spam sites. Not sure. But as I have said before, I have looked since Jan of 2013 and its now Feb 2016 (4 yrs) of looking for work after awhile you just forget what you really would like to do and just apply to anything just to get out of where you are now. As I have said its going to take time. Just like asking a girl out- it only takes one.

I also created some goals new the new year. Most are the same as last year that were not fulfilled. Those goals would be
-Star Wars in Concert
-Travel to NY or Other Place
-See Dad
-See Jason
-Get a New/Better job
-Learn to be happy with who you are inside and out no matter what you do
-Try to not to spend a lot on physical media (since you do not have the room)
-Try not to worry about what you do not have in your life but to enjoy what you have in your life

Doug would like me to join them on a cruse last this year. He told me i should start to save a little bit each month depending on the price...But also would like to do the TSO concert again since last year he missed out on it. So Money wise i will have to see if i could do any of that.

Ending last month was kind of sad because my friend Corey past away. He was working on a roof and fell thru it. The day i thought of him was the day he past. Over the weekend family and friends gathered to honor his life. It was nice to see old friends and to share some stories. Sad. Not a dry eye in the house. i hung out with my old friends for awhile till I thought it was time to go because we all deal with loss in our own ways. And I could not be around my friends for too long. So lots of laughs, hugs, stories were shared.

It is a new month, February 2016 so lets hope its a good one!

2nd January 2016

It was so great to see it in IMAX! Totally different experience. It was seeing the film for the first time! Enjoyed it and really bought you back into the film. The scene that was shot with IMAX cameras was so cool and it stood out! We both enjoyed the film very much!!! The music was amazing, the story was good, the SOUND -the SOUND!

Next up was lunch!! We went to Brixx Pizza, I had Korean Meatballs
house made meatballs sauteed in Korean BBQ sauce with fresh pineapple, green onions, sesame seeds & sriracha and some Breadsticks. My mom had some pasta. It was a yummy birthday lunch! After lunch we walked around to walk the food off. Then we went back home. Later on I had a birthday dinner with my friend Doug. It was nice to catch up with him and we talked about lots of stuff-plans for the new yr, jobs and stuff.
During the day I got many happy birthday wishes from friends via Facebook. So this birthday was a great one. Lets hope that the new year will also be great!!

1st December 2015

2:55pm: Highlights of Disney World Trip Nov 15-Nov 20
Sunday November 15th - Travel Day to Disney. Got to All Star Movies in the afternoon and unpacked and did our own things. I went to downtown disney for the a few hours. in downtown disney i went to the earl of sandwich and picked up some dinner, an earl club. mmm. yummy! After that, I walked around first up in the Disney Toy store and looked at the star wars stuff and looked around. After, I went to get a chocolate shake and walked around. Took the bus back to the hotel and took a shower and went to bed.

Monday November 16 Universal Studios. Super happy! I could feel it on my face. We were only going to the first park and that took the entire day! Got there around 10am and got some extra breakfast to tide us over. Did the Despicable Me ride. So fun and funny! Then we watched the Spongebob fish skate around. took some videos and photos of the fish. After we went to Terminator 2...the pre show was fun like always (But if you think about what Cyberdime wanted to do, it is already happening now!) The show started then ended very fast right when the film started the show just ended. Turns out the bike did not want to be a prop it wanted to be a bike. So we saw the actors run off stage during the film. the lights went up and we were told to come back later. After that we walked over to ET. Always fun! Next up was the Simpsons, Wanted to eat but we past and instead i bought some fun Simpson style drinks and apple drink and a flaming moe drink. YES! We then walked over to Harry Potter and walked around, had some nice lunch at the Leaky Cauldron. i had a sausage dog, chips and some butter beer. my mom had some fish and chips and butter beer. We were still so happy to be there! Nice just walking around and take our time. Later on in the afternoon, found a shop that carries various universal stuff from mini posters. i found and picked up a Bates Motel Bath Robe. So worth it! We did some shopping around the main store, looked in the windows. It was time go back to the hotel in Disney. Around 630 we got back to the hotel, tired but happy we had a great day.

Tuesday November 17 Magic Kingdom Morning and Night! We started out the day having breakfast at the BE OUR GUEST Restaurant. It was so nice! My mom had some breakfast meats and some fruit, I had a donut with lots of fruit and we both had breakfast croissants. It felt like Christmas because it was "snowing" outside and the Christmas tree was up and it was such a happy time! Did a ride or two and went back to the hotel around 1-2pm. Went to the pool for an hour or so. My mom took a nap. I hung out in the food court and gift shop. Around 6pm I was having dinner and I saw a police man and hotel employees with a member of management told me and other guests to please leave and get behind the fantasia pool to go back to your rooms. So on my way back i called back to the room told my mom what was going on and to stay. Moments later I am back in the room, I told her what happened so she tried to call the front desk - no answer. We had tickets for Mickey's Christmas Party at the magic kingdom. So we saw police cars outside the hotel and guests going back to their rooms and everyone asking what was going on because people who were swimming were told to get out and go to another hotel to swim. So all activity was being moved to Music hotel. Later on we heard it was a really rude guest....but the next day we heard it was a bomb threat...well no one will know. So we ended up getting to the magic kingdom around 630pm it was packed but it was beautiful to see the castle all decked out with Christmas lights. We did our best to walk around part of the park, we did Peter Pan's flight and that is such a nice ride! never get to do it because of the line in the day it was 75 min long! We walked around the park getting hot coco and cookies (they were not so good! but the coco was good!) Back in tomorrow land we did our favorite ride the people mover! saw space mountain with the lights on it was under construction (they will revamp it and call it hyper space mountain based off of star wars) We found our way in front of the magic kingdom and took some photos and watched the castle change colors then the fireworks started and how amazing were they? beautiful going over the castle with the christmas music and it was just magical. i filmed the entire show. magical tears were flowing but happy ones! it was a great end to a wonderful day and night!

Wednesday November 18 Disney Springs aka Relax Day. It was a nice day, we had lunch at earl of sandwich, we shopped for awhile. i did not buy anything but mom bought a Christmas Yoda. We went to go see Love the Coopers which was a Christmas film. It got a lot of bad reviews, but we enjoyed it for what it was. Its a film about a family that is not perfect and each family member has their own issues pryer to Christmas Eve/Day and then the family gets together. We went back to the hotel and relaxed and went to the pool for the rest of the afternoon.

THURSDAY NOVEMBER 19 Disney Hollywood Studios or MGM Studios Osborne Family Lights
Spent the morning at the hotel, had a nice breakfast, mom went to the pool, i relaxed in the room for awhile then i went into the pool. we did our wash. later on in the afternoon we went to MGM studios for the night. It was so special to see the theater back to the way it was without any big mouse hat in the way! The great movie ride changed a bit. Still love it but its now an add for TCM. Robert Osborne now hosts the pre show of the ride and also narrates the ride while giving some facts about each film. The final movie has also changed which is fine. Still the same to a point.
After the GMR we went to Star Tours! Boy, it was fun! They added a new scene!!!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ND9MBmTJiyU

When I saw it i had the biggest smile on my face and i was even crying! i kept on saying this is new!! this is new!! it was so much fun!!! Next up was the final Osborne Family Lights Spectacular. So beautiful each and every time!!! The lights, the fake snow, the hot coco. the Christmas music to get you into the spirit of things. So nice!!! My mom and I and such a fun fun time! We called it a night a bit after 8pm then we went back to the hotel and went to bed for the day of travel back home.

12th November 2015

7:52am: I have not posted in awhile. Not much going on from middle of Oct-Present. Just work. Still looking for some other jobs. I did see 3 movies over the last month or so.
First Up was Spielberg's
 photo bridge_of_spies_zpsypdlgjnn.jpg

The day I saw the film i was kind of tired. So I had to get some food. But i thought the film was good. The film did well with Production Design! Good story and good history!

Next Up was a Double Feature. I love this poster! I would like to get this poster because its sweet and I need to dream again!
 photo snoopy_and_charlie_brown_the_peanuts_movie_zps4nig1ngm.jpg
Now this film was so sweet! It was kind, it taught to be your self. Dream Big. Did the show/specials justice. Cried a bit...yes if you sat next to me at the end you would see me wipe tears from my eyes. but happy ones.

The final film I saw was
 photo spectre_zpsjpxrbgcu.jpg
I chose the teaser poster because I thought it was better then the normal posters. What did i think of the film? The sound mix was great and loud! I felt like I saw this film before aka past bond films. But the action was fun and good. Come back and ask me more. I am still thinking about this film.

16th October 2015

7:33am: Walking on air...on a wire
 photo walk_ver2_zpsqrobxkv3.jpg

15th October 2015

7:57am: I have not wrote anything for almost over a month because its just been a tough month or so. Work has gotten me very depressed. Doing the same thing over and over again.

I had a sleep study done

Applying to jobs (few jobs but jobs)

Working lots

18th August 2015

7:09am: What would You Do?
I will start this by asking what would you do if you were in my shoes?

Last night I had to return some items to the front of the store. on my way one of the many managers told me when i return i should "zone" my section super good because the big guys will be coming tomorrow. I said okay so you want everything to be almost falling off the shelf she said yes. On my way back to hardware another manager asked what i was doing while walking back to hardware i said zoning. He said no your not your walking, if your not going to zone, go get freight in the back and start stocking. He then said if i walked by and saw you zoning i would just say hello and be on my way...so i went to the back, i get my hardware, i then am on my way out walking back to my dept. i see the same manager, i told her i was told to get freight and start stocking, she said who said that...i gave the name...she said okay....awhile later back in hardware my self and the other person who i work with were about to start stocking shelves, then both managers walk over and the one who told me to start stocking he came up to me super close and said in a very rude (to the point where it was bullying and felt like it was almost abusive) "Sean, what did i tell you to do?" Why did you lie to my face? Why did you tell stories that were not true?" At this time i was latterly shaking inside? So he standing in front 2 other workers did not want to even hear me out. he said did i say this? am i correct? At this point the other workers were in shock. So he walked off. the other manager said just zone, don't bother doing this. So we start to zone, at this point i am scared to death, i could feel the butterflies flitter around inside my body. I am in shock and super quiet. So we both zone. i asked the other person if she had ever seen a manger talk to an employee like that before? she said no. An hour passes. The manager who yelled at me told me he wanted to talk to me...i was already before this still shocked and in fear, and to walk and be my self with this manager i felt (inside) unsafe and scared. We walked outside, he sat me down asked me how long i have worked here, do you like working here? am i happy here? then telling me he always liked me as a person, some other people say you should do more but i look past that, don't i always say your doing a good job? Then he said sean, why did you make me look like a lier and tell a story that was not true, and make me look bad? do you know how that makes me feel? So I tell him my side of the story. He said, i walked by hardware 3 times and all i see you is standing around or walking around doing nothing, when your here and not have anything to do you zone. He said is there anything you want to tell me? Then he said thank you and said zone, and if there is anything he could do just ask, shook my hand and walked away. All my answers were yes, no. So this time HE made it out like I lied. Did i feel safe with him by my self during all that? No. Did I feel threatened in any way? Yes.I know everything he told me was fake and a lie. He could care less about me.I felt scared for the rest of my night.

Would you call this the last straw? Will I feel the same way as I did last night but going back in 2 days from now? Yes.

29th July 2015

4:56pm: Have not done this in awhile
Today was nice. Picked up some items today dirt cheep!

Saw this today at a store for $1 so i picked it up. Wonder if its good? The trailer was okay. heard the film was not to good. Worth a try
 photo 81QxBklBO6L._SY550__zpstqf0pxyp.jpg

Next item is a follow up. My mom had i think picked up one of these books for me for graduation. I found out that there were a few follow ups. From what i can tell this will be a nice book to look on from time to time, as i do with the first version that i have. So with an old barns and nobles gift card i had in my wallet for yrs i picked this up for 80 cents.

25th July 2015

7:29am: On the July 21 i had an interview with the city of southport for a job. it was a full package job it had good health, retire, 401k, great starting out yearly salary. It went great. I had high hopes but i also thought that i might not get it because i was 1 in only 3 people they interviewed total. I got the call 24 hours later sadly telling me that i did not get this job but would keep my application on file. It was a tough choice for them and they were sorry. I am still upset about that. I did go and give them a thank you note telling them thank you for the time and the interview and to keep me in mind for the future.

I just can not stay at my current job any longer. thats all i can say about it.

To make matters worse onto of this, i had dental surgery they took out 4 wisdom teeth and a 5th tooth yesterday and it hurts and feels really weird. the pain!

20th July 2015

1:22pm: Trying not to put eggs into one basket...but its hard not to
So I've thought a lot about this lately well for the last 2 months or so...

Before my accident (yes i am still talking about that wreck) i was working and almost to the point where i was stuck and in a rut.....Flash to May 24th my car accident. and Post accident...i see life more as a second chance..(for awhile) i then kind of give up on that and i am semi lost (also trying to get everything taken care of legally) then i think to my self that i have not done anything "new" in my second chance life meaning look at life as a new way, being blessed...thinking about what God told me by telling me that he is not finished with me and has plans for me and wants to keep me around for those plans... since that time i have preyed much more, thanking God for what I do have, my life, my mom, my family and friends. And look for the good things that i like in life, be happy and say this is my life...does not have to be big and glamorous...i am already rich in many ways. I have love so much love then you would think of. Anyways point being an event is coming up very soon and Yes I am scared about it, but I hope that this is in the new plans that God has in store for me...and something good (life wise) will change for the better. Now if this does not happen, i know that I will be super upset but I'll deal with those feelings when (or if) that time comes. But for now lets hope for the best and that is one of those big life plans that God has for my future. Again as I said, trying not to put eggs into one basket but its hard not too.
Wish me luck and prey for me!

14th July 2015

7:45am: remind my self to be blessed
I know i have to talk about whats gone on lately but something tells me i am not using my second chance on life for the better...or i am not really taking advantage of it as much as i should. i just had to remind my self that i am alive and its great to be alive. i know its a little over 2 months but i still have to be blessed and grateful that i am still alive and i am okay.

7:37am: On the 20th my mom and i went to wilmington to do some shopping. we went to target, best buy, costco, home goods, yellow dog disc and thats it. got a lot of food for the house.

Mon-wedensday just hang around the house. we went to my aunts house help her pack and get her suite case ready for monday. we also just wanted to spend some time with her and talk because we love and care about her. we went over on monday, Wednesday and mom went over on friday.

i applied to 4 jobs

a city job the job is not something i would think i would even want its an assistant job for helping with parks and reck. but what the job was offering i could not pass up! So i sent in my application and talked to some friends to put good words in for me.

i applied to 2 college jobs
marketing assistant job
front desk at the gym

another job at the hospital but in the kitchen.

Then thud-sun it was work work work. i am still tired. yesterday sunday, my cusant john came down again to bring my aunt back up north. But we had a little party for her with the family coming down to spend time with her. it was nice to get all the family together. i had the idea last week to get pizza, the idea was for every person to pay $5 for the pizza because mom had to put the money up her self. well a few people gave her a $5 or $10 but they thought it was $5 a family not per person. So we all had pizza and it was good. later on mom and i gave Rosie a bag of goodies for the road. And everyone hugged rosie and saying their goodbyes, some of the family momebers were already saying to come back and visit...anyways everyone said their goodbyes. Rosie was getting tired and wanted to call it a day. So Mom and Rosie gave each other a big hug, i gave her a little hug and told her i loved her. I did the same thing with John, i gave him a hug. hope to visit him soon. They will call and check in during the trip back north. When they drove off i gave my mom a hug. I think she needed it. This was not sad in anyways, it was a start of a new chapter. During the time everyone was around, i was cleaning up. at the end of the night i ended up paying for the pizza. no one put the money into the hat so i had to - well wanted to.

we were so tired. i was so tired. i was on the go since 5am for the last 2 days to work at 7am. So i went to bed at 830 last night. what a weekend! glad to be off for a few days. hope to hunt for some jobs this week and relax.

5:49pm: Jurassic World-Sell me a theme park ticket!
If this park was real i would so go to it!!! This was such a fun film to view!! I had viewed the first 3 during the year and re watched the first last week. i thought it was such a good idea that this would be a working theme park. I am not going to spoil it but everything was neat about it!!! the movie was T-Riffic! The music was also great, a lot less Williams but still great. I am going to enjoy the film score more now that I have seen the film. This is just a fun summer film! Almost as great as the first one!
Lots of Nods to the all three films!

8:38am: semi crazy week part 2
My days off did not start till tuesday. since tuesday i've ran around like a mad man trying to get everything taken care of car wise lets see

-i filled out paper work and faxed it off
-got hospital bills and dr bills to send off
-I got my old car title signed and also sent that off so i could get the car money back (what they want to give me for the old car) close to $3000
-I went to the bank to take out money for the car i wanted to buy. (it was tough to take that amount of money from my checking account!) i know i will get that back from the car people but its still tough to look at my checking account to see -$$$$
-then at the DMV i had to pay $123 for something for my new car (fees) so thats more -$$$ out of my checking account
-bought my new car (2000 toyota 4runner)
-my mom treated to get the car cleaned inside and out and waxed which was super nice!
-Today (this morning) drive it around town and learn how to drive again! its a nice easy car to drive BUT the breaks are squeaky at first. Its a BIG CAR! the more i drive it around the less the breaks are squeaky.
-on top of all of this i have taken care of people's pets during the week.
