is that one day i’m going to look back upon this job along with the others — as crappy as they all have been, they were just steps to get me to where i will be: a kick-ass job that i can be happy to go to every day.
there was the country store. the fast-food. the retail. all steps to provide income and help me work through school to reach my ultimate goals: i job i fucking love.
but for now, this place sucks. oh, and he just started ‘firework’ for the second time in a 10 minute period. GRAND.
i need a nick name for this grown man (well, not really grown as he still asks like a little boy) at my office that consistently plays katy perry and miley cyrus at an annoying volume so that i can talk about him in posts.
i also really need to get started on the book i was talking about.
but most importantly
i need a new fucking job
If anyone was looking for a clone to Of Mice & Men, Italy has your answer with Hopes Die Last. “Trust No One” is the post-hardcore/screamo band’s second full-length release.
The first track, “Never Trust the Hazel Eyed,” starts out hard and is basically identical to a track that would be found on an OM&M album. Unfortunately, the rest of the songs following this are pretty much the same thing.
There’s a slight bit of a variation in “Unleash Hell,” which utilizes a bit of the basic electronic music sound. Unfortunately again, it’s just plopped into the end of the track. If it had been expanded a bit more throughout the song it might have been more successful. The track is still hard and could likely be a favorite in the hardcore-screamo scene.
Regardless of the standard sound, many of the tracks do possess some nice melodies and appropriate levels of catchy-ness.
The band throws in a cover of a Katy Perry song, “Firework.” It’s just about as interesting as the original — not very.
“The Same Old Fears” is the only track on “Trust No One” that is slowed down and not full-on screamo for its entirety. The vocal track is accompanied by a piano and it’s obviously more calm.
The album finishes with a track called “Keep Your Hands Off,” featuring a dubstep producer by the name of Nekso. Hopes Die Last apparently didn’t want to be left out of the trend that is having a producer add some dubstep sounds to songs. Whether you appreciate that trend or loathe it, it actually made this track the most interesting of the album.
Hopes Die Last could have mixed it up a little more, especially with it being their sophomore release. But, for fans of this sound and of bands like Of Mice & Men and Attack Attack!, this album would be worth checking out.

took a sick day today. aaron’s working from home. i’m going to attempt to be uber productive.
but most importantly
it could be titled
‘it could always be worse: stories from the worst office ever in existence’
and it could be an uplifting, motivating piece.
sometimes i wish i could utilize all the dumb/weird/unique crap that happens in this office into written pieces. i could write an entire publication on the topic. but i’d probably get sued. or something.
but, for example, how when one of my coworkers can’t find someone he is looking for. he’ll look for a minute, then wander the halls just yelling the person’s name. like a lost child.
that’s not even the funniest/weirdest/most annoying thing. i could go on for pages and pages.
i’ll probably end up deleting this anyway, i don’t like complaining about my office because i don’t know who here knows about this blog. i’m also trying to stop being negative. but i can’t help but be observant. and some of the stuff that goes on around here has to be unique to this place, because anywhere else most of these people would have been fired a longgggg time ago.
there’s a difference between getting into real arguments and saying things you don’t necessarily mean and getting into petty disagreements and just being a blatant dick.
the former isn’t necessarily a good excuse, one should strive not to ever say hurtful things. but everyone knows how negative comments tend to come out in a heated environment.
but while bickering at one another for stupid stuff, neither side of the relationship should say hurtful words. what does calling someone ‘stupid’ or a ‘bitch’ really help?
it’s just a sign of insecurity. and if you’re that insecure you shouldn’t be in a relationship to begin with.
it doesn’t matter how long you’ve been with your significant other. think before you say things and don’t be such a dick.
MOREOVER, those stupid, petty arguments can usually be avoided all together, anyway.
