Trials and tribulations of being back in the old hood!

So I haven't wrote anything out on my blog in a few weeks so I guess its time to catch up on things I am up to.

First of all started my crazy ass workout, P90X. Yes I am doing the whole P90X thing and for the most part I am enjoying the workouts. They are tough and make me sweat like a mad man. The only thing I am noticing from the workouts right now is the fact that being a smoker doesn't help one bit and being a bit overweight right now isn't helping the flexibility part of the exercises. I know the flexibility will come with more workouts and I will get more endurance as I go along but for now thats my problem with the workout.

The next thing I have to write about is one of my buddies. Okay so sometime after I left Whitby and moved out to Brampton, one of my friends had a mental breakdown and was put into the psychiatric ward at the hospital. He was there for a few months and had to be put on some drugs to help straighten him out. Now during my time away from Whitby I would only see or talk to him on the odd occasion so he never really got to me at all. Recently though we have been hanging out more and he seems to be turning more to me for companionship. This normally wouldnt be a problem but I have been wanting to get myself into shape since I have been back in the area and have time but he seems to want to suck up more of my time lately. For example the other day he just randomly showed up at my place and just wanted to hang out, but when I invited him in he said virtually nothing at all. He just paced around my parents place like he was a lost puppy. The day after he basically did the same thing but wanted to go out and get coffee. I had to literally tell him "No way man I am working out tonight and I dont need a coffee!"

Anyways going to end my rant now before I continue to rant about the failure of no job yet!

Sitting around the apartment.

So I am pretty freakin bored today. Most of my day has been sitting around my apartment looking at the seemingly endless amount of crap I still have to pack. I still can't believe the amount of junk I have accumulated over the years of living in this tiny bachelor apartment and yet I still seem to find space for it all. Seriously I live in a 20ft x 16ft bachelor (not including kitchen, bathroom and closet space) and somehow I can fit a queen size bed, a small entertainment center with a 46" CRT rear projection TV, a leather love seat couch, a leather swivel chair, an L shape computer desk with another small desk beside it and a 4' x 4" kitchen table with chairs. ALL IN THIS LITTLE TINY PLACE I CALL HOME FOR ANOTHER 4 DAYS.

Well on the plus side at least I am getting out of this little dungeon and moving on to hopefully better things back in the small town I grew up in. Hanging out with the old friends is going to be a great influence on my life, I hope. Some may be a little ticked off at me due to my 3 year hiatus into the World of Warcraft, but I hope they can understand and forget my issues with that. I guess I will just have to wait and see.

At least a good friend of mine from back in the day is looking forward to me getting back to my roots of who I am and where I came from. I think its going to be good for both of us actually because we are both at the same spot in life and both of us seem to be searching to add something to our lives. We shall see how it goes.

As for living with the parents again, well its going to be interesting thats for sure. I haven't lived under their roof in over 10 years and haven't had to live by their rules or listen to them for more then a weekend at a time. Its going to be a big adjustment for me to learn to bite my tongue so I don't piss them off as much as I probably could. Oh the life of me.......
