Ill
Hello world,
I am feeling a little sick. I have a cough that is getting me really no where. Its no good at all. I am really not well. Who cares though, I will get better soon.
In other news, it is supposed to be raining, but looking out of my 4th floor window, I see nothing (rain that is- there are people hanging out doing nothing).
Today I got to see the Getty muesium... It was sweet. Some very nice paintings, although I am not a huge fan of impressionism, I prefer the realist paintings because it seems impossible to do. I have not juggled in a while. I am need of juggling... it is something that I need to do frequently.

I am back
Hey Everyone out there,
David Riley is back. After almost a year away from this world of internet memoirs, I have rejoined the community due to an extreme week of nothing to do. Lets give a quick update on my life: I joined Ultimate Improv's Mainstage team... I have still been juggling... Kristy and I are still together... My life is a pretty static entity. Oh well. I hope that anyone who reads this finds it interesting.
As a note, juggling may soon be a career. Matt and I were kind of offered a trainee position from one of the most hilarious comedy duo jugglers in the world. I hope that it works out. If we go we would be on cruise ships in not that long and be making a pretty good living entertaining through juggling. I HOPE. Hey, Check out http://juggle.brewhaha.net and www.raspyni.com. The first is mine and matts site, the later is our potential new trainers website (you can get an idea of their caliber from it.) AWESOME. Leave a message if you see this.

Sorry all
Hello Everyone,
It has been a heck of a long time since I wrote anything in here. Its not that I have been very busy or anything, I just didnt do anything. So here is my entry. Awesome.
For the past while I have done very very little, I have been juggling a lot and doing class work. Improv is always in the picture, too. Thats alway fun. What else? Nothing much, I have no friends at school. That really sucks, I always try to talk to new people but they just never get off the ground in terms of friends.
So, that is my mundane life- nothing new, everything old. Awesome.

I am done.

Last Final
My last final is in 1 hour and 20 minutes. Am I ready? One can only hope. I hope. I think so. How have I done on them so far? Well. Pretty well. I have not failed any classes in my college career. I am doing okay. I did fail my math final- the mis posted it at first, but I still got a B- in the class because everyone failed it. AWESOME.
Man, life is kind of hard these days. I do not know what is going on. I am just kind of oblivious. I just go, not really understanding. Feels weird it does. I have little purpose in my life right now (juggling aside). I need to have some fun. I am glad I will be done with my first quarter of college soon, that will help the fun come. Awesome.

Happy Birthday Strom.
Everyone, I have commited a great sin. Strom turned 100 years old and I forgot his birthday. He is still doing well. Yes sir, the man who voted against the Civil Rights act is still a congressman. The man who was in office with President Truman. Folks, I think We all should say happy b-day to our friend- the man, the myth, the legend that is Strom. Happy Birthday big guy. Heres to 150 more. Good luck.
Sincerely,
David M. Riley

Its done.
I am finally done with my math final. It was hard, but I think I did okay... Okay. Awesome. Afterwords I had my first real talk with my professor, and that was kind of wierd. It was awkward slightly. I am glad that it is over- it was my hardest final that I have. Good thing I studied, would have died had I not. I feel better about it than I could have.
I may be going home today, who knows? I do not have class until Tuesday at 3:00. That is cool. Awesome. Well, I am relieved to have that out of the way.
I love you, Kristy.
Awesome,

So little time...
Tomorrow is my Calculus final. As you can see by my writings it is on my mind. I just need a C. That is it. Awesome. I think I am going to do some juggling today and get to bed early. Get a good nights sleep- then off to the final in the morning. Awesome. Give me some support if you think I will do well. I need it.

36 Hours
I have 36 hours to learn all of my calculus. This evening I took my practice exam and got 6/8 right and I would have gotten partial credit on the two I got wrong. Now, this seems like I am doing well, but my math teacher did examples just like these in class and I still got two wrong. Awesome. David and Calc.

Last Words...
Today in my Oceanography class our professors last words were; "If you learned one thing in this class, it can be summed up quickly. Dont mess with mother nature unless you have a big shovel." WHAT? Now you all think I took this out of context, but it was never in context- it was as odd of a comment as one could expect. I am amazed that he said it. I laughed, but everyone else sort of stared. Awesome.
One more thing that I do not understand about the end of lecutres, people applaud the professor. I think that they desrve applause, but it is kind of wierd to me. I dont know. Just me and my thoughts before failing Calculus. Awesome. Hillarious.

See you soon

5 Days...
There are five days until my Calculus final... Crazy. I am hoping that I do well. I have been studying, but I will have an easier time once I get my review. It will tell me what is on the test. I would really like to do well. Just a "C" that is all that I need. That would be great.
In other news, today I did some good juggling with Jordan. He is better than me. It was fun. We got asked to perform in a circus- two reasons I turned this down: one, I have a final during their performance; two, I hate the circus. People always think that juggling is a circus art, and that may be true. Juggling is better as an individual performance peice. This is true in my mind.
Awesome.

Good Times!
This weekend was one of the best weekends I have had in a while. Did some good Risk, 2210-ing (yes a verb) and some good hanging out. It was very fun. Testing was good. I have finals coming up next week. I am going to FAIL my math final. That is why I should be studying in the stead of writing in my Live journal, but alas, I continue to tell the world of my weekend.
Anyone who wants to try out the new Risk game is welcome to call me and stan whenever they want. It is really cool. Dan, Matt, Stan, and I played it this weekend. Oh, Graeme did too. Its a really cool game.
I also enjoyed (as always) hanging out with Kristy. That is what makes me very happy. Its great. Bowling with yall was fun, too. MY NOSE WAS BLEEDING LIKE A LUNATIC. It was insane. It was not a "Bloody nose" like they are supposed to be, rather it was a hole on the outside of my nose that leaked blood for like 30 min. It was crazy.
Well, I am off to continue studying for Calc. Wish me luck, as it is the most necessary thing right now. I just want a C. Thats all I ask.
Awesome.

Today was a GREAT day!!!
So, I wake up at about 7:30 and get ready for class, go to class and it is practically canceled. That was cool, no quiz. Then, as I am leaving class, I decied to get an Iced Tea. As I was walking, I found THE UCLA JUGGLING CLUB!!! It was brilliant. I passed with this guy named Jordan for like 3 hours. He can juggle five as well as I can, and can do three clubs better. It was really cool. The club meets next tuesday, so I am ready for it now. Man, it felt good to do some passing, and I could see me juggling here a lot more. That is always a great thing. Awesome. I am in a good mood. And I get to see my love later, I am very happy right now. I am excited.

Three more days
I am very excited, I get to see my Kristy in three days. What am I going to do today? I do not know, if anyone wants to hang out in LA tell me and you can come to UCLA and get free food. Awesome. I know no one really likes doing that, but you can. In addition to doing nothing, I think I will go to the gym and do some juggling. Good.

Man O' Man
Life is hard. I sit here typing- effectively wasting my life. How does this help me? I do not know, yet I do it. I really need to find something meaningful to do with my life. Right now, it seems that war on terror is a good thing to give an argument against. If there is all of this evidence to attack Sadam, why do we not see ANY of it? Now, I do agree that Sadam is not the best leader in the world, in fact he is a Dictator who oppresses his people. That is terrible, but is a war with 200,000 American soliders and an uncertain of Iraqi's lives worth getting him out when, with our technology to hit his radio stations, there are easier ways? I do not know. This war is not going to help America. Thank you George.

I have nothing
I have so very little to say. I went to school, then Santa Monica, and now I am here. Is that not amazing? Awesome. Talk to you three later (the three of you who read this). Bye

Boat!
I just got back from a five hour boat ride. We did research on many different species (like 300). We just looked at all these fish and plankton. It was very sad actually. We killed so many fish just so we could see their mouths and judge how they ate. Some of them stayed alive. However, there was quite an ironic situation: we had them in this large metal tub which drained them directly to the ocean. I realized this. Most of the class did not. So, when the Biologist pulled the plug all the fish went down the drain. Many of the students pick up the fist and threw them into the ocean- there were about 10 birds in the air waiting and got everyone the students tried to "save." It was sad, but funny. Awesome. It was quite exhausting.
Oh, I also saw part of the movie Titanic today, and it was sad. I wish people did not have to die.

Paper and a Major
So, I have a paper due in a few days on the relationship of Bhakti to the Hindu god Krishna. It is going pretty well. I have two pages and it has to be four to five. Not bad.
This morning I woke up early to get some papers from my oceanography TA's room. He and my professor were there waiting for me. They told me to become a geology major since I have the highest grade. It made me feel pretty good. So, I may do that, but I am still planning on being a dentist. Awesome. Today was a good day.

This Weekend
This weekend was pretty good. I did an event for best buddies (picnic in the park). That was cool, however I made a joke comparing the Onslaught of water balloons on a intellectually disabled person by the "Volunteers" to that of Rodney King and the LAPD. I guess it was too soon for that joke. I went to LACMA and saw a little tiny peice of art that I did not think was very impressive, however I still have to write a 5 page report on it. I saw the show starmites at the High School. It was good. Everytime I go back to the high school, I just feel kind of weird- there are good memories there, but I am not there. It is odd. People look at you differently, some ignore you, some act like you are their best friends. Having never really returned to a place from which I have been gone, it was a relatively new experience. Curious, trues curious. Awesome.
OH, and Kristy was sick, so I did not get to see her, which wasnt cool, but I did not want to get sick. Get Better Kristy. Awesome.
