Amazing

If you do not already know, I work for a Professional Sound & Lighting company. My job title is "Customer Service Representative". Mostly I speak with clients, manage the shipping/receiving, manage the repairs in and out, basic accounting duties, and I do some cleaning. Part of cleaning is removing cobwebs and spiders. Usually I just kill the spiders, and flush the paper towel that I used down the toilet.

A few weeks ago at work I saw this one spider, it wasn't that big compared to other ones that I have seen there. It was hanging in mid-air in the middle of some support beams approx 3 feet apart, and 2 feet high. I just kind of ignored it for a few weeks because I hate killing things, and yeah. Everytime I saw it, it was in the same spot. Today I looked up at it from below, in the warehouse. I saw the light reflect off of it's web, which was amazing. I can't imagine the amount of time that it took it to do that, it looks great.

Then I thought that I really didn't want to kill the spider now (although I think it is dead, it is always in the same spot, in the middle of the web, and when people walk up the stairs to the second floor, the support beams shake, so the spider shakes and it doesn't move). It spent all this time building a home for itself, and then to have someone come along and take him away from it, and destroy everything that he has created, and kill him.

We work so hard to gain material possessions, nice cars, nice clothing, big houses, etc, but what is the point? We live our lives, and then we die and goto heaven or hell.

This post came out a lot different then I thought it would. I am planning on using a couple lights and my camera to take some cool pictures of the web sometime next week.

Growing old.

Well. I am 19. Look at me go. I bought a lottery ticket tonight. I hope I win. I can buy beer. There is nothing I cannot do. :) In Canada the drinking age/etc is 19. Look at me go. Whoo Whoo.

I am in a bit of a delirious state. I think it is partially due to some sadness deep within me, of things that I regret, or regret not doing. People that I should have become friends with, and people that I should have stayed away from. Things that were meant to be, and things that shouldn't have been. I looked at the moon while I was driving tonight. It is beautiful, the way the sun reflects off it it, creating a masterpiece that only God could create. God is Good.

I bought some new computer hardware today. DVD Burner, 200 Gigabyte hard drive, and a D-Link Wireless Router, and some smaller things such as blank dvds and a 256 cd/dvd case.


I feel like my life is going downhill. I don't feel like I am accomplishing anything, and the days are just passing me and I am stuck in the same place. I see kids younger then me growing up and doing something with their lives. What is wrong with me?









On another note, Ryan is gone. :(

I suck at cars.

GG! (Good Game!)

So last night I went to pickup my sister from her best friend Carly's house. (Hi Carly!) So I realize that I need to put oil in my engine, so when I get back I pop the hood and grab some oil that I bought last weekend. I could barely see the whole, and so I start pouring. I stop because I realize that I am spilling everywhere because I cannot see, and I dont have funnel. Then my engine starts smoking like crazy, so im like oh SHOOT (That's not actually what I said, but I censored it for you because your cool! :D)

So after a few minutes it stops smoking, and I shut the hood. The hood slammed down a bit too hard, because the front grill of my car popped off! I had noticed a few months before that it was glued on in a couple places, and that a couple of the tabs were broken.

I suck at cars.

Guess who turned 19!

My 19th Birthday was on August 5th. I didn't really have a birthday party, but I hung out with different groups of people over the course of the weekend, which was cooler.

I went out to dinner with my mom in White Rock on Monday night to celebrate, we ate at the boathouse on the roof. I had a fish and chips and a Bellini, which were both excellent. The service was very good too. I love White Rock, I want to move there some day and live in a house with a nice view of the ocean.

My best friend Ryan left for Mexico yesterday. He will be living there for a year, teaching English. I will miss him dearly, now who will I waste time with? Watch movies? Eat junk food? It looks like my CS playing time just doubled!

In other news, guess who is the new Tribe of Judah Counter-Strike Chapter Co-Leader?
If you guessed me, you are correct! :)

Yup, another blog.

Well since my aspyre blog is outdated and I can't seem to login, and my livejournal account was deleted, I have created a temporary blog until I can see if I can get my old domain back.

I guess I should introduce myself. My name is Bill. People may call me Ball. My friends call me Billy. I live in Maple Ridge, a small suburb of Vancouver, BC.

Yes, I am a geek.
