One Day Can Change a Life

Its amazing how fast things can change.
Its almost way to strange.
One day you can be on top of it all.
The next in total free fall.

People come and people leave.
Just have to know who to believe.
The right ones will always stay
Never to let you stray.

Its amazing how one day can change a life.
A new day will bring new strife.
You just have to try to see the light.
And never give up without a fight.

Always trying to stay ahead.
Without having to to worry and dread.
Know that you will always be in my heart
Whether together or apart.

I wish you all the luck when your changes come.
Please always remember where you came from.

The one who this is about will never see my words.
But your pain still pierces me like a million swords.
I am finally ending this fight.
Good luck in life and good night

The more things change the more they stay the same

Today facebook changed again and like usual people have already started to say how much they hate the new facebook. Just like they did when it changed the last 100 times.  You know normally the changes actually turn out to be good things the first drastic change facebook made was opening it up to non college students and most of the people who might read this wouldnt have even been allowed onto facebook.  Just when everyone will start to accept the changes facebook will ultimately change yet again and the cycle of people bitching will continue.

No Intro Needed

Sitting in Ms. Schaeffers computer programming class learning about how to program in basic.  Thats where I was when I first learned about the WTC attacks.  It was fourth period and as I went to 5th period Mr. Vergari's class I was wondering if we were going to get out of school early, looking back on it I am a bit ashamed thats what was going through my head, as we learned we were going home from school I was asked to play hockey later that day.  I was so excited to play hockey for the rest of the day, when I got home I had learned about the 3rd building in the WTC complex to go down.  I had no idea how that one day those 4 planes would change the rest of my and our lives forever.  Now ten years later I wonder when will it happen again if it will happen again, in those ten years yes we found and killed both bin laden and saddam, but it will never be over I fear.  I can only hope that some day my children will look back at Sept 11th and never have to go through a similar tragedy, much like I am sure my grandparents hoped that their children would never have to go through another Pearl Harbor.  I have never been the most patrotic of people and those of you who know my stance on the term hero being thrown around will be suprised by this but those fire fighters who looked up at buildings that had just been hit and knew they were going to go down, but still went into that building are heros.

Maybe we can have nice things

Finally I have a laptop again, I had forgotten how nice it is to be able to sit down somewhere and type.  I havent had a true laptop in probably 2 years because of the horrible battery life that I had and then the monitor went out so I was confined to any space with a plug in for my big desktop monitor.

I have been thinking a lot lately about the things I have done in the past and wondered what kind of person I would be if I had not done certain things, such as what would I be like if me and Ashleigh never would have split, what if I never joined Tau Kappa Epsilon.  What if I just accepted the answers I was given and never questioned anything.  I think I would be a vastly different person, maybe for better but maybe for the worst but at the end of the day I am happy with who I am now and with the choices that I have made in the past and that is all that matters at the end of the day.

Oh and finally I had a friend read this the other day who was upset because she hadnt been mentioned yet, so hi jackie now your mentioned dont complain again haha.

This is why we cant have nice things

In true clumsey Eli fasion as soon as I get a nice thing another one of my nice things breaks.  No more than 2 hours after activating my new phone I drop my iPod touch and the screen cracked, luckly it was just the outer screen and the touch screen still works and I can still use the iPod.

I am actually writting this on a computer for the first time since the very first blog because Heather was kind enough to let me use hers hopefully I will be getting a computer soon, I should be able to in about 3 weeks, and I am sure that as soon as I get a new computer my iPod will break because for some reason I cant have more than one nice thing at a time.

Shake shake shake

The great quake of 2011. So I guess the quake was felt in little ole vandergrift Pennsylvania but alas I did not get to feel it but then again it is just a little shaking I guess. Still have yet to feel an earthquake that wasn't made artificially by the science center. 
One of the best things in sports is the little league world series and this year a team from about thirty minutes away from Williamsport is there and as of now after playing 4 games has played in front of over 126,000 people which is amazing. The kids have played great ball too. I couldn't imagine being 12 and having that kinda pressure on me. Another great moment of the llws was the team from Aruba being down by 20 and their left fielder instead of being pissed he is out there dancing. Little league is truly for the love of he game. 

I haven't been updating this as of late due to being tired at night and going to bed before midnight since I've started working I hope to update it more often in the coming days. Also if your one of the people following the blog let me know who ya are I'm curious who reads this.

Finally one of my brothers has a blog he wanted me to whore out. He is one of the most brutal honest funny and smart people I know so check out the godfathers blog

The social network

Why do people feel the need to have to know everything about others?  Even going as far as to betray trust by breaking into peoples facebook and email accounts and going through peoples texts and calls on their phones. Now full disclosure I have done it once or twice but it did confirm my hunch that I was being cheated on. That still doesn't make it right though. I do know a lot of peoples passwords and I will never betray their trust as I have given out my passwords and trusted those people not to mess with my stuff. 
I chose this because a friend of mine was hacked this week and lost all of their friends on facebook which I know with just over 300 friends I'd never remember all of them much less some people who have way more. I hope she got them all back and doesn't have anymore problems. So I guess the point of this is be careful on who you trust no matter what people may still screw you over.
