It's a long one...

Where do I begin?  This looks strange, I haven't done an LJ cut in quite a while so I'm not sure if I'm doing it right. Anyway, I've been busy. Lots of family stuff going on, and just lots going on in general. Last night I went out with my future brother-in-law and my cousins. A lot of people didn't show up. I don't get people, *sighs*, what can you do? Everyone has their priorities I guess, but I just don't see how you can choose people over your family. I guess they're young, but I don't know, it is just frustrating. At my age I'm starting to see, well I guess I've learned that at the end of the day, family is all you've got. They're the only ones you'll be able to count on, and the ones that will have your back when you need it. You live, you learn, they'll see. There's a couple of people in the fam at the moment, that are so...well for lack of a better word, whupped. Fuck, can't you do anything without getting permission first?

It was just a little fucked up that my sister and her fiance had crappy turn outs for their bachelor/ette parties. We ended up meeting at Mullen's just to hang out. You think that you have tons of friends, you know like you do on Facebook or on Myspace, but you don't. Last year I had a pretty crappy bachelor party as well. Probably had something to do with my choice of groomsmen, but I digress. I just wish things would work out better. They could always be worse, but whatever...I'm probably taking shit harder than the actual people getting married. I just don't get choosing to go out to a cult church out in Indiana or going to a "friend's" party over hanging out with your family. It's not everyday that you're getting ready to get married...whatever. Fuck it.

So my cousin Rob graduated from High School today. His graduation took place in a church, it was a Catholic high school so that's why the commencement was there, before anyone asks. Of course, as it is with any event, parking was scarce and people were trying to save seats. Why can't motherfuckers just show up where they're supposed to be on time? How hard is that? Why is that concept so difficult to understand? You have to be at point B by X o'clock. So leave point A (wherever the hell you are) early enough to allow you enough time to travel to point B before the designated time. Of course you have people coming in after it started. You actually had students getting there after it started.

If that wasn't bad enough, there some girls in the pew in front of us texting and playing games on a phone the whole time. One of them even had the audacity to recieve communion after all that crap. She wasn't even standing when you were supposed to. Don't get me wrong, I'm not Ned Flanders or anything, I don't go to Church too often but when I do, I like to be respectful. I would do the same thing if I was in a synagogue, temple, or mosque. Then of course you have the people being loud and ignorant. There were specific instructions given...

PLEASE HOLD YOUR APPLAUSE UNTIL EVERYONE HAS FINISHED SO THAT EVERYONE'S NAME CAN BE HEARD

Easy enough to understand and follow right? So, Joey Joe Joe Ahern is up first to get his diploma. Relative quiet. Joe Blow is next, okay, cool. Person number three comes up. WOOO!!! *clapping* *cheering*. Shut the fuck up aholes. Fuck. I won't get into it, but I'll just say that after that, it was pretty predictable as to what names were going to get cheers. I can't blame some of the families though. I'm sure that for a lot of these morons this pedistrian act of graduating from high school just might be the crowning achievement of their sad lives. So I guess they have to cheer while they can, enjoy their day, the only time Joe Dipshit is going to wear a suit outside of a trial.

Yeah, it didn't bother me toooo much.

Anyway, the ceremony wraps up, we all go on our merry way. It takes a while to get out, but whatever, it is to be expected. The street outside is packed, people are celebrating, taking pictures, the usual. Of course some idiots try to drive through the crowd. Dude, reverse, seriously, there are hundreds of people trying to exit a church and find each other. You can go back and down an alley.

Alright, I'll stop, I'm getting worked up again just thinking about it.

I guess this is it. I did it, every day in May was a success. Yay me. I'm a little annoyed about the two days when my iPhone acted up, so I didn't get to upload the entries until the next day but I wrote it on the day so BACK OFF ME MAN! Heh. Of course a couple of the days were short, pointless entries...but what entry isn't pointless, really?

I'd like to take a moment and thank all of the people that made this possible. My loyal readers and followers. My friends and family. My lack of full time employment. My abundance of spare time, all of the little people, the academy. Of course, last but not least, my main man JC and his dad, our Lord, G.O.D. without whom, nothing is possible.

Thanks for reading, have a good night...

One,

Gil
