Today’s Rant: Last Rant

AJ's RANT BLOG

This is my last rant. To sum up my rant blog I’m going to put almost everything I’ve ranted about in one rant: I feel like the root of all my rants begin with me being broke. I think my financial status makes me angry, which leads to ranting. For example, if I wasn’t broke I could afford to eat out more, clean my car more often, or even buy a new car. I’m not sure if I have ever ranted about my car but I hate it. It’s great because it’s cheap on gas but it’s slow, and if I wasn’t broke gas money wouldn’t be an issue. With money I could get a new car that is fast and won’t leave me stuck in traffic. It would also make driving more exciting. Weirdly enough if I wasn’t broke I think it would also solve the issue of bad…

Today’s Rant: Two Songs Stuck in my Head

AJ's RANT BLOG

The two songs stuck in my head are for some reason really catchy. The problem is that the lyrics are kinda fucked up. I don’t mean to use harsh language, but they’re fucked up. The lyrics stuck in my head from the first song: “All my friends are dead”. There are other words but this line is in the course and it gets played in my head non stop when I hear the song. The lyrics stuck in my head from the other song: “percocet, molly percocet”. Two hard drugs. The problem with these lyrics (if its not obvious) is that youth across the world have these lyrics stuck in there head too. If kids are singing these lyrics casually that means they are becoming numb to death and drugs and are integrating it into their culture as if it’s normal. This idea could be a stretch but I feel…

Today’s Rant: Long Island Trip

AJ's RANT BLOG

This weekend we are traveling up to Long Island to play NYIT.  This past week the weather here in Tampa has been in the 90s and sunny.  In Long Island it’s been cold and rainy. Not a good transition. I can usually play well in the cold but once it starts raining I freeze up. Hopefully it doesn’t rain during the game. In addition to the shitty weather we are going up to, we have a bus to the airport at 6:45 a.m. I haven’t been up that early in ages… And if we are taking the new buses (recently the buses we use for team trips are new and uncomfortable), then the ride to the airport is going to be uncomfortable as well. We have to win this game or this trip is going to be hell.

Today’s Rant: Chipotle-Love Hate Relationship

AJ's RANT BLOG

There is a chain restaurant called Chipotle. I am sure you have heard of it. After a scandal regarding contamination of their food they are beginning to make a come back. Before the scandal I didn’t eat there. I just didn’t like burritos or Mexican food all that much (besides for tacos and quesadillas).  I also hated the restaurant because of how often people talked about it and how many people talked about it. It seemed like an inside joke that everyone was in on but me. I eventually changed my mind and went there. I loved it. I got a burrito with brown rice, black beans, double meant chicken/steak, mild pico, a little bit of sour cream, and guac. I dropped Like 12$ but it was worth every bite. This one burrito caused me to go there more and more. Through frequent trips I have found out that my…

Today’s Rant: Laundry with a Broken Dryer

AJ's RANT BLOG

Living in a house with three other college kids can bring up some difficulties in everyday life. One of the difficulties is doing laundry. With four of us, the washer and dryer are constantly being used making it a struggle to find time do laundry. With a full schedule: school work, classes, lacrosse, etc., this makes doing laundry even more of a struggle. I also need to pick the right time to do my laundry because if I’m not there to change over the wet clothes to the dryer, they will smell. With all of these factors in play I also need to account for my laziness. I don’t like doing laundry.  I always end up wearing every piece of clothing that I have before I do laundry. This leaves me with about 6-8 loads of laundry. This means that I have no clothes to wear, 6-8 loads of laundry…

Today’s Rant: PB & J

AJ's RANT BLOG

For the past three days I’ve eaten nothing but peanut butter and jelly. It’s all I can afford. Luckily I bought a case of water, bread and pb & j before I went completely broke for the week, otherwise I’d have no food. Some food is better than none but I’m getting sick of it. And in addition, I am getting no nutrition from the bread. The peanut butter is good and I’m guessing the jelly is a good source of sugar but the white bread isn’t cutting it. And no, I’m not going to buy any kind of bread other than white bread because I won’t eat it. It’s to bland of a meal to be sacrificing flavor for nutrition. If I don’t eat a hot meal soon I’m gunna snap… and no, toasted peanut butter and jelly is not what I meant by a hot meal. I’m trying…

Today’s Rant: Bookstore Over-Priced

AJ's RANT BLOG

Today I went to the bookstore on campus to buy a thumb drive. While I was there I looked around a little bit to see if there was anything I needed or wanted. I started looking around in the clothing section and I couldn’t find anything I could afford. Literally everything I wanted would clean out my bank account if I were to buy it. So I went over to the school supplies section. I looked around at the note books, pens, pencils, packs of paper, etc., and couldn’t find anything worth buying. Everything was over priced. I didn’t buy anything from that section either. I eventually went to the register and bought the thumb drive. It cost 15$. It should’ve cost 10$.
