Day One

We left the house a bit before six AM. Made it to St. Louis a bit after nine. We both desided to stop and go to the arch. I was able to live one of my two dreams, I went to the top of the arch!!! (Other dream is to go to a St. Louis Blues Game).

Going to the top of the Arch, My brother and I had this converstian:
He looks out the window and see the tram moving up
Him: Wow thats is quite a drop and I am scared of heights
Me: Why the hell are you looking down then?

On top, it was so pretty. Got tons of pictures of that. After that, we walked around St. Louis for a few hours. We got lost in East St. Louis. Finally around one, we found our way out of St. Louis. We finally made it to Chicago after six. Here where It got bad. I am not used to that type of city traffic. I was freaking out and we keep geting lost in the city. It took us over two hour to find the damn hotel. Tommorrow, should be a hell alot better. Will try to post one pictures on myspace.

One last thing, in St.Louis, we where trying to find a way get out of there. We ask the woman at the parking area. We told her that we are using mapquest. She looks at us and goes "Mapquest is pretty worthless".

Our dumbass finally left St

Pre Trip thoughts

I decided use blogger for my trip. There is a lot of people who is either on my facebook or myspace. I keep myspace private so this way facebook peeps can read about it too. I am nervous about the trip to Chicago. The reason behind the trip is to go to a Manic Street Preachers concert. My brother is a die hard fan and they don't tour the U.S. that much. We leave tomorrow morning and check out on Friday. The concert is on Thursday night. I figure we will be back home on Friday night or Saturday morning. The trip is about seven hours one way. We might go to Detroit since it is a four hour drive from Chicago. Detroit is up in the air right now. I should have photos up this weekend. I will probably send some mobile pictures to myspace. Facebook mobile does not work with my cell provider. I'll try to update this everyday of my trip. I also try to update my twitter though about the day too.

Personality Test

I had to take this personality test for my sociology class. I have to say, I agree with my results:
  • You have a great need for other people to like and admire you.
  • You have a great deal of unused capacity which you have not turned to your advantage.
  • Disciplined and self-controlled outside, you tend to be worrisome and insecure inside.
  • You prefer a certain amount of change and variety and become dissatisfied when hemmed in by restrictions and limitations.
  • You pride yourself as an independent thinker and do not accept others statements without satisfactory proof.
  • You have a tendency to be critical of yourself.
  • At times you have serious doubts as to whether you have made the right decision or done the right thing.
  • At times you are extroverted, sociable, while at other times you are introverted, wary, reserved.
  • While you have some personality weaknesses, you are generally able to compensate for them.
Anyone willing to post their results? lol

What I learned

01. Missouri's I44 road work is never done. I swear to baby Jesus that there is always some form of road work on that interstate. I don't think I have ever been on I44 and there been no road work.

02.Chicago Drivers Scare Me. Driving there is like playing a real life frogger with your car.

03.7/11 Spokesperson is Domo. Domo rocks. I want a Domo doll for my Birthday or Christmas. He is so cute.

04. Illinois interstate road work is just as bad, maybe worse than Missouri. I swear I would hit road work ever thirty miles. Here I thought Missouri is bad.

05. Mapquest is bullshit!!

06. Did I say how cute Domo is?


Since I wasnt home much last week, I am so behind on the TV shows. Since being unemployed, I been watching a crap load of TV. I tape a few shows last week and still having got to watch them. I just been so busy to watch stuff. Hopefully, it will slow down enough this week for me to watch something.
