11:20am: Since sunday all i have is work work work and work hard! Today is a day off. Going to enjoy it as much as I can. Thinking about buying a new old radio show set of Quit Please. I bought the same set at Christmas time but its to the point where i thought at the time when the set first came out that radio spirits did a some what good clean job on the sound. But i do not think so. I am putting the shows onto the computer to compare. But last year radio spirits came out with a new up to date remastered set and i listened to a sample of it and it sounds great! So i am thinking of picking this remastmmered version up. I know i will enjoy it. Anyways. Last week i also picked up on PS4 the Friday the 13th video game. i have played it a little and its kind of fun...better then going camping for real. I had bought it for when the came company adds a single player option then always playing online.

6:04pm: Have not updated in a while! Well for the rest of May, i was working my butt off. Nightshift for a week, then back to day shift. Made a good paycheck to pay for a concert ticket! This month has gone super fast already! Last week went out with Doug and Company to eat. Nice time to spend with friends. This week we are getting ready for a yard sale over the weekend and i guess you could say i am on a little mini vacation because i worked last night then on Thursday night and do not go back till Sunday night. So i almost have the full week off. But having a yrs sale means a lot of hard work!

Have wanted to see some movies but i just do not want to go to the theater or i just do not have much time. movies i would like to see are

-Wonder Women
-The Mummy (or Mummy Impossible)
-Cars 3 (Read reviews that its really Rocky III/IV)
-Rough Night (looks like Weekend at Bernie's for ladies)

5:16pm: Disney World 2017 Highlights!
May 3rd 2017

My mom and I got to our hotel (Pop Century) early in the morning around 11am. My mom and I were so happy to be there! We first had lunch at the food court and guess what most of the food had changed from last year! They did not sell anymore of Johnny Appleseed sandwich. oh well. it kind of put the weight on me. So I had a pulled pork sandwich with pasta salad. We got word that we could go to our room and unpack. We were so happy!! For the rest of the day we hung out at the hotel and planned the next day (My mom's 75th birthday)~ It was so great to be on vacation and it could start now!

May 4th 2017 Mom's 75th Birthday / Star Wars Day

It was our first breakfast at POP what to have? I had my usual Chocolate Chip pancakes, which tasted good. The nice thing we were on vacation and were on our own time and having a late start of the morning. We caught the bus to the Magic Kingdom. First thing we did was we took the Walt Disney Rail Road past Adventure land and ended up at Fantasy Land (aka Mickey's toon town fair) and we walked over to The Little Mermaid ride and did that. Kind of fun. Then we were off to "Beauty and the Beast's Be Our Guest Restaurant" For my mom's Birthday lunch. It was so very magical and just still very "aw" inspiring and we both loved it. Lets see I had a carved turkey sandwich (was only able to eat part of it) and mom had Braised Pork (slow cooked) Both were very great and filling. Our deserts were The master's cupcake and a triple chocolate cupcake. Both were great and tasty until we hit the cupcake. After lunch that was my treat we moved onto Dumbo circus and I got soaked and wet. very funny! We went into a few shops. Mom went back to the hotel for awhile and I stayed at the park. I was only able to do only I think 3 attractions on my own because it was so filled with people such as Pirates of the Caribbean, The Haunted Mansion. Thats about it. I forgot to do the people mover and the caracul of progress and I had past thru. It was kind of getting hot. I was not ready to leave the kingdom yet so I stood up near the entry way of the magic kingdom and it was time for their daily flag retirment ceremony and I was up high. I wanted to do something very cool so I stood in one spot and I recorded all 20 min of it and made a time laps video and in the end it only lasted a few seconds but very cool. I did the same thing with a disney duck.

....Meanwhile later that night....

Mom wanted to stay at the room so I took the bus down to hollywood studios. And I sure was happy. I could just feel it in me. It was such a magical feeling. So when I entered the park gates I did not know if i should go left or right? So I first made my way over to star tours and that was my first ride. And the ride they were featuring was a trip to Hoth and a place in Eps 1. After the ride i went into the gift shop and at that moment i said money is no object when it comes to star wars. I was in vacation mode! I picked up 3 star wars shirts and star wars mickey ears and the total was more then it should be but it was disney. I had a meal at the backlot express and then waited for the star wars nightly show. it was fun but i had a better time last year when it was more fireworks then film clips from the series. It just does not really work as well as it does on the magic kingdom.

Friday May 5th 2017
It was a day to relax and we went to downtown disney springs market place for the day. And the bus let us off at the new shops...the more expensive side of the market place...more on that....We went to the movies to go see "The Circle" another one of those too much what we share online is bad/social media is bad type of movie looking like its google, Facebook or mac. Overall it was a good movie. Tom Hanks was good also Emma Watson also was good. So after the movie we walked around picked up some snacks to eat such as pretzels and i picked up a shake. It took us awhile to get around to the original market place. It just seemed so dead, also they stopped using the bus stops over that way so guests will just go to the new end and not the older end. We had some ice cream and it was a nice cool treat to have. After looking around we went to the coke store on our way out and it was so nice 3 floors worth of coke stuff and a coke bar on the top floor. We also met Mr. Bear aka Coke Bear. He was so cute!

Saturday May 6th

We spent the first few hours of the day in the pop century pool and it was glorious! 4 HOURS! Later we went back to the movies to go see Gardens of the Galaxy Vol 2. It was a bright movie. Was it good yeah it was but nothing to write home about....it was also very cold in the theater! A nice relaxing day!

Sunday May 7th
We were back off to Hollywood studios and this time mom was with me. But also we were going to meet Danny and his wife Linsey for the day. We did the great movie ride, walked around and then we had to go have some lunch at our fav place Prime Time Cafe!

After we met back up with Danny, mom said her good buys to them and she went back to the room so it was just the three of us. We just hung out in the park just talking about our lives and just stuff that we enjoy. After a few hours I walked them out and I stayed in the park (oh yeah I got my money back on those star wars shirts - turns out I had gotten a chid and female shirt without knowing) and took some photos with star wars people again and recorded the meet and greets.

Monday May 8th
Just spent the day at the hotel, in the pool really relaxing. But also I had found out that Paul McCarney was going to play in MSG in Sept later this year and so I was asking mom about it and what she thought. She told me i should go for it because its going to be one of those moments in life where you will enjoy also to see a living legend like that in concert is rare. So I bit the bullet and i bought a ticket to see Paul at MSG! (That is one big $$ gift to buy in Disney) I also laughed and said Pop Century hotel would be proud! haha.

Tuesday May 9th
Epcot Day= A lot of walking! We tried to ride Frozen but the ride froze so we had to get let out by Disney co. It was just getting kind of hot. We did the coke store. Had lunch in Norway. It was a nice day for both of us. Long day but good. Back at the hotel we just relaxed, went in the pool. I played Disney trivia and once again I won. But I could not use my prize because we were checking out the next day. It was such a nice vacation something we both needed!

Photos soon.

1:54pm: An April Update
Have not updated in almost a month...lets see what life has been like...

I have to start out with work like always. Not too bad. I made employee of the month.
Still working many hours.

Easter time was so very nice. Spent it with my family in Wilmington. I had not seen them since November 2015 and they only live 40 min away! My mom gave me an easter gift it was a box set of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Picked up some movies first some Disney Movies - Treasure Island and The Black Hole. I found the special editions of Psycho II and III sure they were on DVD but they were less then the blu rays. I also viewed Season 1 of 24 Legacy and Season 5 of Bates Motel.

The camping trip that the group was going to take was called off because of bad weather. so everyone met up for an afternoon at a park. the park was 40 min away. not sure why it was so far away but it was a nice day. It was soccer and hotdogs and just hanging out. The rest of the gang went on to someones pool, then out to eat later that night and walking the beach till 3am. I went back home after the picnic.

Only 8 more days till our trip!

3rd April 2017

11:35am: Going Rouge!
After 6 long days I am off. What got me thru the week was a record I had pre-ordered with an amazon gift card way way back in January. The Soundtrack on record
Rouge One A Star Wars Story. Very funny about this soundtrack - When I first got it back when the film came out in December (I had gotten the extended soundtrack not sold in stores) I listened to it a few times and kind of liked but disliked the music. It was just okay. So I listened to it again till the first of the year. Same thoughts. it was good but not great. Flash forward to April 3 months later of not listening to the score. Now I have it on record and for some reason it just sounds that much better and now this score has turned from a good score to a great score. Not sure why it sounds better on record. I guess because its a double record set. You have a long journey ahead of you. Sides A,B,C,D to listen to. Also I have all of the other soundtracks on Digital and on Record but it all sounds better on record.

27th March 2017

7:56am: 3 days off
I am feeling so much better these days....somewhat tired because work has made me work some times 6 days in a row....thats going to start again tomorrow.but for now my boss gave me 3 days off over the weekend because i have busted my butt over the last few weeks covering for a co-worker. i have had a very nice 3 days off.

Saturday - we went out to yd sales. Did not find much. I saw Split. Thought it was a very good movie. But the scene at the end credits made me really rethink the entire movie and also look at the poster for the film.... Had a nice pizza dinner and watched Rebels.

Sunday - Also a very nice day! We went to the movies go to see
 photo beauty_and_the_beast_zpscxbyxww9.jpg

Going into it I thought that I would just only like the 91 film and not this remake but I was so very wrong. It was so wonderful!!!! The music was special. The acting, the singing. The sets everything had so much detail! Such a great movie! It touched my heart!

Then later that night I watched the one that started it all
 photo beauty_and_the_beast_ver3_zpsgeslivyb.jpg

I'll admit its tough to kind of compare them both. Both are the same but very different. This one is such a classic of its kind. It was the first ever Disney feature to get nominated for best picture in 1991 for the Oscars. Both films are so great in there own ways!

6th March 2017

11:46am: some days i want to go to bed and not wake up
Since the trip with everyone i have worked 6 days in a row for the last 2 weeks. just working super hard all the time. no time to do much of anything. eat. go to work. sleep. same thing over and over and over again. some days i wish i could just go to sleep at night and just not wake up the next day. they over work not just my self but everyone in the store. they have people working 10+ days without a day(s) off. not right.

15th February 2017

8:18am: depression hits again
Over the last 2 days Feb 13-14th i have had anxiety it just feels like its everything going on. I know that work sure does give me that for many reasons such as
-the constant music they play (over and over and the same songs for the last almost 3 yrs)
-songs about summer time (what month is it?)
-seeing really really over weight people
-my job in general.

It was to the point where on the 13th i had to go in the back and sit down for a bit and try to calm down.
Depression has also sunk in by the way once again aka sean has the blues!
When i came back out and i was doing my job i felt like i was going to cry.

Happy Valentines Day by the way.

I gave my mom some red roses and a small bag of candy. She gave me a cute mickey mouse card and $20 for fun money to spend it on but i did not find anything fun.

Yesterday was also tough. Sure i wished everyone a happy valentines day and i told people to treat them selves to something special. but you know what? i just did not and still do not feel special. I was happy on the outside (to a point) and sad in the inside. i could feel it. Also they music was bothering me and just i felt really bothered and upset. i was all tense inside, i felt like my blood pressure was also going up. I also at one point wanted to cry again. Also they had me running all over one side of the store doing 3 depts. jobs. aka returns and onto of that i had work that i had to do.

I then come home, tired and still upset. I go onto Facebook and i found my old friend kelly has a boyfriend. that made me sad. why does it make me sad? I guess its because 20 years ago i had met her and she was the first girl i had loved in my life. As you kind of know it she loved me but not the same way as i loved her. it was kind of a one way love. Not going into our story. But she looked happy in her photos with her boyfriend. Better to love and loss then ever loved at all. It just made me think that i am still single. people say if you want a nice girl go look for one. your not in my shoes for one. seems like the only girls i talk to are the ones at work and i do not want to go out with anyone at work...and most of them go out with each other anyways.

So anxiety and depression all around. I called into work...taking a mental health day off. I hope i feel better about me and my life. because right now i dislike me.

9th February 2017

9:18am: Work is going alright. getting very board of it...want something better. Anyways onto better things

I have watched more movies lately. All of them are up for an Oscar or some award. Not really into watching tv shows lately. Speaking of tv shows the only 2 shows i want to watch now would be 24 Legacy = it just started but i will wait till the season is over because that is the only way to watch a show like that. And in 2 weeks the final season of bates motel starts. Looking forward to that. A Psycho mini series

We went down to Myrtle Beach on Monday. The weather was nice. Bought some snow pants and some gloves. Doug and friends are going to west Virginia in less then 2 weeks for some time in the snow and i am going. have to have these mini trips and something to look forward to so work life can not be so dull all the time. Got to come up with something for the month of March....

Now don't get me wrong, i still love my disney infinity i think that game did something really positive on me. but around 2015 when the force awakens came out EA came out with a new up to date version of battlefront and since then i have had my eye on it. aka watching youtube videos stuff like that. i even pointed out that i was even thinking of getting a PS4 to buy that game to play a few times. Anyways, a few weeks ago i came across the first xbox system at habbitat for $20 i had one but it broke. so i bought it and just last week i went on amazon and picked up the first 2 battlefront games for xbox to play them. Its once again - enjoy what you do have. So i am a proud owner of battlefront 1 and 2.

21st January 2017

8:15am: Time sure does fly! I was looking at the calendar to see what I have done for the last 2 weeks. I have worked a lot. It seems to be getting better. I heard a comment from someone (not knowing who it was) said that i am one of the most hardest working employees in the store. Very nice to hear. I have looked for jobs but not as much. Just dabble in it still.

The days off i have had I have watched a lot of movies. Such as

All were rather good.

Today is my day off. Going to relax. I got the Soundtrack to "Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them" on beautiful green and blue vinyl record. Used some of my amazon gift card for that.

6th January 2017

7:59am: Good morning to everyone. My little vacation is going well. it sure is a quiet one.

Tuesday Jan 3 was a day at home. Kind of catch up relax day from the day before. I had time to open up the PS3 headphones and put them to use. They sound great. i used them on a few games. The sound does sound like its coming from all angles.
I took photos of my gifts. I opened up all my infinity figures and put them into a case. I also listened to some radio shows. It was a nice day.

Wednesday Jan 4 was another day at home but this time it was by my self. My mom went out for the day. Nice to spend some time to your self. I played some video games. Did some projects. watched some movies.

Thursday Jan 5 I took a nap in my chair, we did book a birthday trip to Disney in May for my mom! So yippee! We are going to disney! Also found out U2 might start putting out dates for the new tour this month.

Friday Jan 6-who knows what today will bring

2nd January 2017

9:20am: my 36th Birthday
Today is a new year for me. Today I enter my 36th year on this earth.
I know its going to be a great day today!

It began on Sunday, went to go see Rouge One, once again. Second viewing I thought the second half of the film was better then the first half. aka the setting up the story. That kind of took long the second time around. But when we see Darth the story really gets kicking into high gear!

But i had a really nice birthday! Birthday gifts (some I had bought before Christmas but i gave them to my mom to save and she chose to give them to me today) were given out after breakfast

31st December 2016

3:44pm: Looking back in 2016
January 2016 began well because I had my birthday and it was a very nice time.
I also took time to start a new resultion each month. It began by putting things in order. But the month ended on a very tragic note. my friend Corey past away. He had gotten into an accident. Life is short. Enjoy every moment!

February was a new goal to learn something new and it was Film and Philosophy. The Wilmington filmed The Choice came out. Also. It was shelved since 2014.
Also looking for jobs, redoing my resume. Looking everywhere i could think of (online)

March came a pay raise at work so it brought my pay up to $10 an hour. I know thats not much. but it has helped me in the long run. I was also trying to enjoy things i do have. i even ordered some new old radio shows such as collection of Dragnet and Suspense. Saw Zootopia which was nice. I also saw Batman Vs Superman on Easter - not a great movie to see on Easter sunday but hey.

April came spring and family into town. My mom and i drove down to SC to visit family. It was a nice day but rather windy from what i can remember. I think I was working very much because i do not remember much about that month. Other then that.

May brought May Flowers and my moms may the 4th Birthday in Disney World. We had a wonderful time this trip. I really needed a good break and mom had a wonderful birthday. That was the highlight of the entire month.

June was the start of some personal issues that i would have and i am still dealing with to this day. Work was already getting to me. Not able to do anything, nor see any friends. Upset most of the time. I was still looking for jobs and getting nowhere with it. I was able to go see some movies during the month so that made me happy.

July was a rough month. The start of the month was okay by having a few days off. But work really did get to me. By the end of the month I was really upset about my self, my life, about my job, about not able to find a job. the stress of the current job that i have. My moods were changing day by day. One thing i always kept in mind was A few months ago I and posted I would do a new resolution each month. I have so far done 7 of them. This month the 7th month it was not to not spend much money aka no credit card. Well I reached that goal. Next months resolution(s) will be
-No junk food for the month (no cookies)
-Try to continue my movie server project (I just started once more (since 2014) that once again to finish up my Blu Ray movies)
-Start to watch a tv show I never viewed before that I have the complete series of since 2008

August of this year was again another really awful month. The stress of my job was and still is killing me, day by day. It was also the month were I had a bit of a melt down. (still do from time to time) I went to my doctor. The good news is I did use a paycheck to buy a 16tb hard drive for my movies/tv shows. And I worked on my server project for the month. And I was still looking for a job and still nothing. I was and still am very upset about my self. i am not really creative as I use to be. I do not take any trips. Just i felt and i still feel the world is coming down on me. And i felt awful because of the guy who i have become in life. in other words something snapped inside.

Sept was kind of a nice month. I had a check up at the doctor which went well. My mom went to go visit her sister for a week. i had some time to my self. I also had found a game i had wanted since 2014 which was Alien Isolation. I even put some time in at work for time off during the next month because I really did need some time off. people were really concerned about me. I was even thinking about getting a new game system but did the math and it costed too much money. So instead I bought into the Disney Infinity game since the company stopped production everything would be cheap. So thats what I did. It was something fun to spend my money on and I was really enjoying it. I was happy, first time in awhile.

October was a nice month for me. The winds of change. I was on vacation first time since May! I was still playing and enjoying Disney infinity. I also discovered some old Disney horror films from the 80s. Enjoying being off and enjoying old radio shows again. It felt so good to be off and relaxing. Went down to SC for the day to get away and enjoy our selves. i also picked up via PS3 The Last of Us. A really good video game I am glad i talked my self into buying! i beat it in a week.

November The start of the month was nice. i picked up some goodies at a church sale for cheap. Also spent time with my friend Doug. The world voted (for the wrong person) sad to say and won. Shocking! I was still working but more crazy since the holidays were going on. My mom and I had our own thanksgiving by going to go view the Fantasic Beasts film then the next day have a nice small turkey breast and just being thankful for each other. I was also doing Christmas shopping during that time.

December the final month of the year. I am getting more respect at work from people. meaning they see me and they appreciate me and the work that I do. They take good care of me. I was even asked to be put on full time. But I had to pass because of my health insurance. I would pay more going thru my work then i would be paying right now. Doug and I and friends went to the TSO concert in Greensboro that was fun but a long 23 hour trip. Its also another month for a new Star Wars film. i loved it. And another Christmas. I bought my mom some TCM wine - Orson welles, Hitchcock and Frankenstein Wine. Also an Adele CD/DVD combo, a DVD of a show she enjoys. An electric throw blanket and some soaps from a store in downtown Disney. Wow Christmas was last Sunday! Christmas was nice spending it at home with mom and the pets. As this year comes to a close and another year begins. Much heartbreak happened this year. it was a stressful year in more ways then one. Lets hope 2017 is a better year then this year.
So Happy 2017 to everyone!

26th December 2016

6:23am: Merry Christmas!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas with family. Hope "santa" left you some nice things for your self and for your kids. This is what santa left me. I did not take a photo of my new clothes. I have to take a photo of what my mom got from santa.

7:22am: Happy 4 days till Christmas!!

All I can say is they are working me to my death at work. I had monday and tuesday off this week. I have to say it was so good to be off of work after working 6 days in a row. All the things people take for granted being home to eat dinner, spending time with family (mom and the pets) stuff like that. I go BACK to work today for the next 4 days- even work Christmas Eve (like thousands of other people) Anyways enough about that place.

On friday we went to go see
 photo rogue_one_a_star_wars_story_ver34_zpsnfvqgcj0.jpg
I thought it was a good movie. kind of dark. its almost like a thinking movie. i like it but i don't. not use to it. i guess that means i have to see it again! oh a funny story my popcorn and soda cost more then the film tickets. cost $28 for the popcorn and soda

 photo rogueone-regal-popcorn-tins-216936-1_zpsdxpuasq5.jpg

it was worth it. i was having fun. May the force be with you!

13th December 2016

8:01am: I have not posted since the week of thanksgiving! Wow~! Time flies! A quick recap my thanksgiving was kind of nice. My mom and i had a turkey dinner on Tuesday. That was just so special. I had to work on thanksgiving as did many other people. I was out by 730 that night. it sure was crazy! Skipping to this month my gifts came for my mom for Christmas. Some wine from the TCM Wine Club and also some nice soap from this place in Disney World that we enjoy going to.

Work wise its gone fine. I might have said i am getting more respect there and people are finally seeing me as a hard worker someone who they can depend on. i was even offered full time. As of now I had to turn it down because of my health insurance rate. i would be paying more if i get it thru work then what i am getting now (price wise)

Moving on Doug, my self and other friends and I once again went to go see last night the Trans-Siberian concert last night. It was a long journey! Began at Sunday 530am picked up. Then we drove to pick up the other people. We got to Greensboro after noon and had a nice lunch. Went to the concert the show started at 3 did not end till 5. I thought the show was nice. Same view/same seats (side front row) It was loud. It was christmas/ classical music mixed with a story. Then they also played a mix of their own "best of hits" After the show we drove to have some dinner. It took a long time. We left the restrant around 8ish and i did not get home till 230am this morning. So I was up for almost 24 hours with friends. It was a nice mini road trip. with good people. i slept most of the morning. A lazy day.

22nd November 2016

8:30am: Fantastic!
Last night was so fun. We went to go see
 photo fantastic_beasts_and_where_to_find_them_ver2_zpsaoxr6elj.jpg

It was such a fun and fantastic film! It had the feeling of the HP series! And it had some new magic in it. From what I could tell (not movie wise) that its a one off book, but its also a semi book series from other books from Hogwarts that may be like this book/film. Now the thing I do not understand is how they can stretch this out for 5 films. First it was 3 now 5. But a great film a fun 4 star film for the holidays!

8th November 2016

11:26am: History today!
It was nice to get out to vote this morning. This is history today!

6th November 2016

8:19am: The other day was nice. Went up to wilmington. I returned a tree I had bought for mom. She made a choice not to keep it. the tree was way too much money anyways. so instead bought some items for the porch for the holiday.

Later in the day I picked up a few movies i had not seen before

Looking forward to viewing these! Later that night Doug and I went to go view

I thought it was different. Fun. The special effects were good. Thats about all I have to say about it.

And yesterday went to a market and picked up a 100 pack of blank cd's free
Also free was  photo Norah_Jones_-_Feels_Like_Home_zpsba1l1rmx.jpg

and my mom also picked up for free was

I also took a nice afternoon quick nap in my chair and that was a bonus! Did some projects around the house. Had a nice dinner then had a double feature
 photo 6615629_sa.jpgmaxHeight550maxWidth642_zpspa79ux94.jpeg

I have to say viewing these back to back was kind of neat. the 76 version was kind of nice because how you were introduced to the people in the film with a voice over. You got a good intro. The story was sweet but also dated now. Turning to the 03 remake. I had gotten this film yrs ago on vhs. I really liked it back then. The plot is almost the same but with differences with the times we live in. I kind of feel with the time we live in now the "family lesson" is more present in the remake. Both films hold up in the own ways plot wise. the better film of the two would be the remake then the 76 version.

3rd November 2016

7:54am: I have had off the last few days. Halloween 2016 was a nice one. I played THE LAST OF US and also downloaded the DLC on ps3.

Kind of a creepy game. Later that night went next door for some pizza and then it was time to come back home to give out candy to the kids. We had the front of the house all decked out with lights, strobe lights, fog, halloween music, a skeleton bride and groom on the wall. It was nice but the only thing is no matter how much candy you buy to give out it goes by so fast! We closed up at 740pm!

The next day I was back on the PS3 playing the game again. But i also went to the shed to clean it up and put some order to it halloween stuff, christmas stuff, yd sale stuff that kind of thing. I gave bono a walk around the block he was so happy. its getting harder to watch him come up stairs at night. he even moans when he can not do it, so we have to cheer him on.

Yesterday was kind of a nice day but kind of a lazy day more then anything. nothing really went on at all. tried out some games to play. looked online for some things. had a nice dinner though so that was nice. sent some e-mails to some friends. oh i did watch a movie last night It was THE ODD LIFE OF TIMOTHY GREEM.

A Disney movie. It was a nice film, kind of the old fashion heartwarming type of films they use to come out with. (Its for kids but the film was more adult themes to the story)
And you guessed it - I cried at the end of the film.

6:12pm: A nice quick note
The other day my mom went to the eye doctor and while she was there the eye doctor and all of the nurses told my mom that in the few years they have all known me, that love to see how nice i have turned out to become a wonderful kind adult. When my mom told me that (its not the first time she has gotten told that) I thanked her because its how she raised me is how I have become. I just wanted to say i love and admire my mom very much. she is a wonderful mom.

3:06pm: The rest of my vacation
Monday Oct 17

It was a relaxing day for me. The theme of the day was video games. I picked up an old game of mine that I had bought in 2014 it was Aliens. It was a game that came out in 2013 and it was a bomb. A first person shooter in the Alines world. A sequel after aliens. I had first played the game and could NOT for the life of me not pass the first level and I did it. i past the first level and onto I think the fourth level. I now can not pass that one. I was also playing the Disney infinity game during the day.

Every year around this time i tend to get back into really enjoying and loving old time radio shows again. Around this time I go for the horror stories because of Halloween. These sets have been out for the last 2 or 3 years. And I wanted to get them on radio spirits but i past because how expense they were. ($33 and up) I found them on iTunes for $20 each.

I am still listening to the first set of

I also picked up a second set of

I am really happy and enjoying these radio shows. Sometimes they even woke me up at night because they scared me so much.

Tuesday Oct 18th

My mom and I went out we went down to Myrtle Beach SC for the day. We first hit up Crispy Cream Donuts. Got some hot donuts and some halloween ones. We then drove down to the outlet mall for the day. I went into the Disney store and it was kind of nice to be down there. But nothing caught my eye. We then had some lunch at 4 guys burgers. They have such great burgers. The time was past 1pm and we left the outlet and I had to stop into Toys R Us because they had Infinity figures for $4.99 each. I found the 2 that I wanted. They did not have Mickey Mouse but they did have Minnie Mouse and Donald Duck! We got home later around 5. I wanted to try the figures out and both are so cute! Donald has a cute waddle when he walks and Minnie is just so cute. I was also trying out some of the toy boxes i had downloaded the other day and that night it was a duel between Darth Vader vs Minnie Mouse and Minnie won! Cute!

Wednesday Oct 19
Just was a relaxing day. Played some video games and watched some movies.

Thursday Oct 20
My order from amazon came in and its hung up on the wall. some nice vinyl art. Once again I watched some tv shows, American Horror Story and a Hammer House of Horror's.
Went to bed early because I was just kind of tired of watching tv and i had old radio shows to listen to.

Friday Oct 21
My second order came in (new shoes) and I also downloaded some other horror radio shows. The first one i really always loved the cover because its just so classic.

The second is an album of short stories and runs around an hour long. Its an album meant to be listened to with the lights off and headphones on.

17th October 2016

10:51am: Saturday the first day of my vacation - Lets calm down

Woke up early and went to yd sales. Nothing really that great. 4 hours later we came back home. I was very tired because I had a bad sleep. I was up for a few hours and could not go back to bed till around 5am. So I put something on and fell asleep in my chair for a good hour or so. Then I woke up and had some lunch. Watched some Disney Horror films. yes Disney put out some suspense and horror ghost films back in the 80s.
Both were really not that bad.

First up was

i have to say this was a really good film. I know it seems like i say that a lot about movies. It was kind of slow when the film started but it goes along and gets better. Almost like a slow burner. This is Disney, it deals with death, the devil, heads being cut off. kids fears. It was super good though. This was during Disney's dark period in the early 80s.

The next film I watched in the preview had a warning to parents (again Disney's Dark period)

"As Proud as we are for The Watcher In The Woods, Walt Disney Productions strongly recommends the parents pre-screen the picture for pre-teens. It's Not intended for small Children!"

I had to watch it. It was okay suspense film. But i will give it one thing the film stuck with me. made me think and wanted me to come back to watch it again...So i guess that means it was a good movie. haunting movie. the film score was dark and eery. I would buy both films if i saw them at a good price.

This is part of my countdown to halloween. I have a few more dark disney films to watch. i had to re order a device for my computer because the one i have is now broken but it lasted 6 or 7 yrs so it did well.

Sunday = Relax Day
It was be a bum day. Watched some more horror films and relax. just enjoying my time off. Getting into (horror) old radio shows once again. Which is a good thing.
I also bought for the PS3 an add on to Alien Isolation and i have had fun playing the last mission from Alien. Its scary but fun.

5:05pm: a break!
on vacation!!!

28th September 2016

3:54pm: Almost a month
Well, I am not dead, so thats a good thing. Last time i updated i wrote about my doctor apt and how i felt about the meds and various awful thoughts i had to my self.
This month has been very busy. Work wise the environment has not really improved. Its a very demanding place.

On to the topic of the follow up doctor apt. it went well. He will keep me on these meds for a few more months. I feel they have done me good so far. i also went to the eye doctor for a yearly check up. The vision is about the same as last year, I have to get some reading glasses. But other then that as she put it i am holding my own. So that was nice.

My mom also went up state NY to go visit her sister (my aunt) for a few days and she had a very nice time spending time with her and other family moments. I could not come because I was taking care of the pets and I had to work. but that was okay.

A few weeks ago I picked up Alien Isolation for PS3 for $6 new but it was on clearance. I have really enjoyed the video game and still playing it and still screaming! I also had a yearling to play Star Wars Battlefront on PS4. I have as PS3 so I looked into it and the PS4 costs $300+ the game costs $20 + if i wanted to buy the expansion pack it would cost $50 more. To play one game it would cost almost $400 to play. Not worth it. So I thought about looking into Disney Infinity and I know the game is finished producing new content and the game is going for cheap so i ended up picking up for $20 the starter pack + 2 other star wars play sets for $20 so in all I got the game everything for $40 and I love it! its such a fun game! And for spending that much money on it was not a had choice. Even my mom was happy for me to find something fun and to spend some of my money because I really do not spend a lot of my money i work for.

Next month is October and I am taking a vacation, also having a yard sale and halloween is also next month! And I have started to view horror films since the start of this month so I am way ahead of the game!
