Seriously people around me are flakes, they can't commit to anything that is going on or that is going to happen, and no I'm not having guy issues here because of the commitment part.
Actually my guy friends are the ones that are being cool, they might have their busy lives, but hey when they aren't, they are willing to help and hang out for a few drinks or chill time.
What I'm talking about those that are around that just seem down for anything, then like flakes crack and get soggy on you when the time comes to go. I have had this issue quit recently with people that say they want to go out and do something, now with my busy schedule of school (school-work) and my job, I'm always down to get out for a little while and get away from all the hectic things in my life. Like anyone that wants to have fun I do too!!...
Unfortunately I have those around us that end up making excuses last minute and spoil my plans for the night.. That gets me so frustrated =(... Any giving night I like to stay home when there are games on TV..OMG I love that, of course going to a sports bar is always cool because I can see the game with fellow fans, but it sucks when there is no sound..lol..
This takes me to the part of meeting new people and making my surroundings different then what they are now. I love the people around me, but like anyone that likes to be out and meet new people I now it is time to do that. Not only just to hangout with some new peeps, but also getting to know people in the industry I am pursing for a career.
I just dont need the flakes to get me down and soggy in their bowl of milk!

Finally after three years of not knowing what I wanted to do I have been linked back to my love for sports and my continue desire to work with such a great field. I will be looking for internship soon as well as getting more experience in anything that has to do with media in the sports world, local newspaper, Internet, and magazine. I have been fortunate to have already been writing sports for the campus news at school and been the sports editor to go on my resume.
I just need that boost of knowing that I will not fall behind on the work I have already accomplished in the career plan I'm choosing. That I will not be sitting here at a desk not doing anything, but write on my blog!
Now I must go for a drive back to school for my late night class.. to be continued...

GOOD LUCK this season James.. I'll be rooting you on for a very long time.
In excerpts from an interview with NBC's Matt Lauer that aired Friday morning, the swimming star didn't directly answer the question of whether he was smoking marijuana.
According to excerpts released by the network Thursday, Phelps replied: "It was a bad mistake. I mean, we all know what, you know, what you and I are talking about. It's a stupid mistake. You know, bad judgment. And it's something that, you know, I have to, and I want to teach other people not to make that mistake."
USA Swimming suspended the Olympic great for three months after the photo was published in a British tabloid Feb. 1. He also lost his sponsorship from Kellogg.
"I've come to realize that people want to bring you up, but more people want to bring you down," Phelps said. "And that's how our public is. That's definitely something to keep in mind and keep close to heart."
Phelps has previously apologized for his poor judgment.
He was questioned about promises he made to fans after a DUI arrest in 2004, which the swimmer vowed was a mistake he would not repeat.
"I'll be the first one to admit I've made a lot of mistakes in my life. Both, like I said, in the pool and out of the pool. I've never made the same mistake twice," he said.
When asked if he considered his DUI arrest and the marijuana controversy the same thing, Phelps replied: "In my eyes, no. I think they're both immature and stupid mistakes. For me, I feel my duty is to try to help other people not make this mistake."
The photo was taken at a house party while Phelps was visiting Columbia, S.C., in November during an extended break from training after he won a record eight gold medals in Beijing.
"There was probably two or three people there I didn't know," he said. "It was a very small group. Six or seven people probably total in the whole house. Like nothing major. You know, not like a giant college house party. It was nothing like that. It was just a small group and we were just sitting around and celebrating."
Phelps said he trusted his friends that the people he didn't know there could also be trusted.
"I'll say that there are a lot of people out there who want to take advantage of any situation they have. ... Sometimes you learn the hard way," he said.
Phelps said he became aware of the photo a day or two before it was published.
"It's not about money to me," he said of the fallout. "So, you know, the contract side of things, yeah, I was disappointed. But, you know, I think the biggest thing is who I hurt the most. Like, if I lost money, OK. It's not an issue with me."
Asked what his mother's reaction was, he said: "Didn't scream. Clearly showed she was upset. She wasn't reprimanding me."
Phelps also addressed the issue of young boys and girls who look up to him that may have been crushed by the photo.
"I want to say that if you do make a bad judgement or you do make a mistake, make sure you're responsible for it," he said. "Because that's how you're going to change and that's how you're going to learn."
The remainder of the interview will air Sunday night on "Dateline."
http://www.sashavujacic18.com/ .... this was a new one that he doesn't expect to wear during games, but a fan took the time to send it to him, so he wore it at a dinner for the contributors to his new site. He has been getting a lot of headbands and he has been trying them out during games. He still is trying to look for the perfect headband to wear during the games to hold his long hair so he doesn't have to worry about his hair and concentrate on the game!!
I love this guy his is so nice and what he is doing to make his appreciation to fans known is awesome!!!...

"I was no further than when I cheer. I guess I'm on the court when I cheer as well, so I've got to watch that. I might get suspended for that."

ORLANDO, Florida -- Manny Ramirez and the Los Angeles Dodgers finally reached some common ground in their negotiations, according to a source close to the talks.
After multiple failed attempts, Ramirez and the Dodgers agreed to general terms Tuesday on a two-year, $45 million deal. A source told ESPN.com that obstacles still remain to completing the contract.
Agent Scott Boras didn't immediately return a phone call seeking comment.
The Dodgers announced last week that Boras had declined the team's fourth offer to the star outfielder -- a one-year, $25 million contract with a $20 million player option for 2010.
The outfielder is expected to travel to Los Angeles on Tuesday night. Ramirez would then report to the Dodgers' spring training camp in Arizona.
