The Source of the Problem - Stress-aholic

I've given it some thought, and I have come to realize I tend to play a lot of games that involve killing things. Two of my all-time favorite games are Mercenaries and God of War. Also, there's my whole fascination with the blood and gore that has become so readily available in movies these days. When it comes right down to it, I think it's about stress release. I'm a busy guy, and for some reason I always seem to feel like I have the weight of the world pressing down on me, whether what I do is in any way important or not. I'm a stress-aholic.

I get very little sleep, and work hard in classes I have very little interest in. It's more than that, though. Even in the summer when there was no class, I always had something to stress out about. Getting a job, driving my little sister to her riding lessons, getting out of bed. It all just weighed on my mind. I actually disappeared from UD and the Internet in general for weeks at a time in search of relief, but never found it. At the rate I'm going, it seems like I'm always going to be stressed out. It bothers me, since stressing out just wastes time and causes more stress. I've been trying to write a book lately, but have scarcely found the time to work on it between classes, UD, homework, and trying to get some sleep.

I have had a good amount of time lying in bed awake at night to think about it. Ultimately, stress is not caused by actual events in my life. As was stated earlier, even in relatively relaxing environments, I tend to stress out over little things. When it comes right down to it, I'm just making myself miserable with a negative, stressed-out state of mind. The only real solution is to find a way to relieve all that tension that just keeps building up, because videogames and bad sci-fi movies don't cut it.

Bottom line: I desperately need to get laid.

I'll admit, that's probably news to no one, but that doesn't make it any less true.

Things 4: Things in Spandex

I've been busy as hell with schoolwork lately, so I haven't been able to update this thing much. Really, I haven't got that much to talk about right now, but there's a few things. Oddly enough, all wrestling related.

Thing 12:

Tommy Dreamer beat the crap out of Test with a prosthetic leg

I've got to go to one of these live events sometime, because they sound fun as hell. During the match, some guy in the audience pulled off his prosthetic leg and tossed it to Dreamer in the ring, who then used it as a weapon. The full story can be read here.

And in other wrestling news:

Thing 13:

Yo, yo, yo, yo. Pop a 40 and check your rollies. It's Cryme Tyme!

Seriously, whether you enjoy wrestling or not, you need to watch those videos. They're comedy gold.

Thing 14:

Thanks are owed to my arch-nemesis for bringing this to my attention. I complained earlier about The Boogeyman being fired from WWE. Well, it seems he may be coming back after all. The source this came from is in no way reliable, but they're not always wrong either. The original article can be read here. Warning: That site is loaded with popups.

In case you don't feel like being bombarded by popups, here's the relevant text from the article:

Marty Wright (The Boogeyman) is being brought back to the WWE after being fired on Wednesday, September 20. The announcement should be made in the next week by WWE. We'll have more details on this as the story develops.

Regarding Wright's release, he was shocked and dismayed that WWE decided to let him go. He didn't understand as to what he did wrong to cause him to be fired. Unfortunately, Wright had earned a reputation as being unreliable, not dedicated to getting better, making excuses for missing rehab assignments, and generally being oblivious to how unprofessional he came across. There was ongoing concern that he wasn't advancing as a talent behind the catch phrase and ring entrance, both of which he had obviously mastered.

Alright, that's all the things for now. Peace out.
