web browsing and such

It seems that over the years that I’ve been browsing the web in some fashion or another, I tend to notice recently that the site’s that I’ve visited a lot have been growing smaller and smaller as the years go by. For example, several years I would visit at least 8 to 12 just about every day, but now it just seems that I’m just visiting no more than 6 to 8 sites at most. After about 2 to 3 hours of woundering around on the web I just want to shut of the computer and do something else, like reading a book.

Another thing that I’ve noticed is that that some site’s that I’ve visited in the first several years have either been shut down or merged with another site, and in some cases not even updated for the longest time.

There were really good site’s that I’ve found over the years but then thing’s do change. People’s interest in doing site’s or whatever about maintaining sites just ended up as a chore than anything else. I know it was making websites and such in the begining, but now I just don’t have the time nor the interest in having a constant update to my site. What I mean is that I want to add on, and do more stuff with my site but currently I’m using a windows pc, which in turn I get a creative block – basically I can’t be creative on a windows pc no matter where I am. If I was using an Apple Macintosh computer would be another thing altogether.

But hopefully thing’s would change this fall after I might get a new Mac computer, but at this point I don’t know if I would. If I did I would be adding stuf to my site. Like having a online bookmark’s, something similar to del.icio.us – which is a good service by the way. I might even intergate this blog and my site better than just a link.

I would just see how thing’s go for the rest of the summer.

School

Its one of those thing’s when I was online and checking stuff relating to school and such that I found out that I’ve been admitted to a degree program at UAF but it may or may not be the right undergrad programe that I want to be in. But, I would just have to wait and see about. UAF, is a good school and has many great programs, plus its location is also good to have for field studies to be done.

Things to do and whatnot…

Recently, it seems like that I want to do a lot of things with this blog and my site. I mean that I have a list of stuff that I would want to add and / or expand on this site, and it just seems that, while using a windoze pc, that I just unable to get around of doing things, like adding stuff to my site.

The things that I have on a list that I would like to do, which most of it would be powered by php that include the following things: a links section, photo album, and a custom built guestbook. Its just that I don’t like using windows and prefer to use a Macintosh computer for maintianing websites and related items (including everything else, too).

When I’m using a Windows pc my creative juice’s just don’t really flow that much, however my creative thinking flows a whole lot more with a Macintosh computer. Macintosh computer’s are a lot more stable in the long run, which I do like when I’m doing anything and everything really.

lost and stray dogs

Late night of May 11 2005, there was a stray dog that was woundering the street in front the place where I’m currently staying at and this pictular dog was woundering the area for the last few days and last night this young small dog, must be a few yrs old, and didn’t look well either.

Anyways, what really bugs me so much is that dog owners let their dogs roam the streets or forgets that they left their dogs outside.

Back to what I was saying, this dog what looked like a terrior (sp?), has a white coat with a big brown spot on his ear and around his right eye, and with a blueish color with no tag. So, this dog started to hang around my home and finaly called up the Animal Shelter to see if there was a report of a missing dog matching this description but nothing close. Anyways, before I left to take this youngish dog to the shelter I started to feel really guiltly for taking this dog down to the shelter and even more so after leaving the shelter because this dog didn’t even want to stay. But even now I still feel guilty and really bad, sort of, for the owners of this dog by not knowing where their dog is, and what might happen to this dog if he doesn’t get a new home or return to his old home.

It just makes sick that in some cases that people don’t really care for their dog’s or other pets that they might have. They would just have pets for just because, which is no good reason at all.

maybe more to come…

Things are beginning to annoy me…

Over the last several months or since the weather has been warming up is that I’ve been getting these weird looks directed at me for some unknown reason that I can’t fathom on why people are looking at me for like I’m kind of freak that shouldn’t leave my own home for any reason.

It doesn’t matter where I’m driving to, whether if I’m going to one of my classes downtown or to the class that I have in the Art Complex or to one of the computer labs on UAF’s main campus for doing some homework for 2 of the 4 classes that I have.

When people do look at me whether or not if I’m in my car or walking to a building (post office, supermarket or wherever) I get a look that says that I’m not suposed to be there or that I have a big red bulls eye on my forehead, on my back, or even on my car. Granted I need to get my car washed and into the service department of the Nissan dealership to have a very major servicing done.

The looks that I have been getting recently, just gives me another reason that I should move to the lower 48 as soon I get my degree’s in Business Administration and maybe in Technology too. Plus, its to the point where I need to have a very major change in my life – like moving back to the lower 48.

Anyways, I’m just tired to a lot of bull shit that I get no matter where I go here in Fairbanks, Alaska. I do my best about being friendly towards to other people. For example, I like to keep doors open for the ladies when ever I can or when people have boxes of mail leaving the post office on Geist Road.

Still, the weird looks and the bs that I’m getting is bugging to the point where I just don’t want to take anymore classes, going to the gym on a semi regular basis, and even to the supermarket.

Sometimes, no matter when I’m driving there is usually someone that drives like there isn’t enough time to get to their destantion so they would rush to get where their going to. Recently, as I was heading downtown for one the classes that I’m in and for some reason I had to go to fourth avenue so I could get to the parking garage and this older guy, along with a woman in a big 4 door ford truck pulls along side and gets in front of me regardless that I had to slam on my brakes to avoid hitting this guys trucks rear end. People complain the way I drive around town. Maybe my driving could be better, but still, people drive like their always in a mad rush to get somewhere.

I’ve also noticed over the years living here in Fairbanks that 8 out 10 times that people rush past will get the red light, and yet I get to the light at the same time that the person that rushed past to get to the intersection. I’ve seen this type of driving all over town, and its just makes me sick that people would rush to any giving intersection and slam on their brakes, and would expect to get through the intersection.

People & crosswalks

One of things that I’ve noticed since the weather has warmed up and the snow melted off just about all of the main roads in here in Fairbanks, is that I’ve noticed that people really don’t really care if they go against traffic lights when crossing any giving road in downtown Fairbanks. Its just that when I see people start crossing the road is when I start going through some of the interestions on downtown streets. It seems like that people don’t give a flying fuck for their safety.

At somepoint, regardless of when, where someone could and will get hurt badly if people don’t cross streets safely. The thing is that when people do actully cross the or any street for that matter, is more often than not is against the light on the street that they have just crossed.

want more thoughts?…..

A story about the Anglican Church

I found this story on Yahoo News! about the seperation of the Anglican Church, which to me seems so damn stupid, because that no matter what church that you might belong too unable or unwilling to change simply that they must (or generally) follow the bible.

This whole thing about gays in general seems so stupid but you can’t really change people, they are who they are. But, in this case, everyone should find somekind of common ground about having gays openly in the Anglican Church or any other church for that fact.
