I leave for New York in less than two weeks. It's a bit surreal to think about it. I moved to California on January 31, 2004. Now I will be starting a new chapter in my life. I am motivated to make it work and go up from here. The last five months have been one of the most difficult months in my life. Dealing with emotional problems and psychological issues. I realize now that I have to do things out of my comfort level to help myself. I have to learn to not trust my instincts. I have to be realistic about my expectations. I realize that the weather won't be like it is in California and that will be an adjustment. I also realize that I will have anxiety and stress when I start my new job. But, I need to listen to my doctors and take a step back and look at things from an outside perspective. Giving myself positive reinforcement and not being too hard on myself will be a necessity. On the social side I know that I will have people to call, I just have to make the calls, make the plans, and be positive at all times no matter what happens. I can't rely on anyone for anything. I need to have confidence in myself. Even if I don't have it I have to try to pretend that I have it. I can control my life and how I want it to be. I can get anything that I want by working hard at it and not giving up. Eventually things will start to fall in to place if you continue to work at them.

|As I sit here
Shit has hit rock bottom. I think it's fair to say that things have never been this bad. I have put my room up for rent because I don't have enough money. With one friend, one part-time job, no woman, no money, little social interaction, I sometimes wonder what keeps me going everyday. I am being forced in to moving back home, which I dread. How do I get myself out? What do I need to do? The big question is how did I ever get in to this in the first place? There have always been symbols to let you know. Are the symbols telling me that I need to get out? I'm tired, I'm sick, I'm frustrated, I'm angry, the same thing is growing old and is ready to die. My spirits have been low for awhile, and I no longer have that optimism, and positive attitude. It's scary to think of the person that I have resembled is a shell of who I was before all of this shit happened. Life can be so cruel to people. I know I don't have it the worst, there's plenty of people that have it worse. I know who I am. I know my flaws and weaknesses and my strengths and aptitudes. Right now my weaknesses are being exploited and I must fight them by working hard at correcting them. I cannot accept the way things are, things must be changed. I am the only one that can change them. The most important thing is to forget about the past, and focus on the present and the future. This may also go with changing my life style drastically and not doing the things that I have been doing. Habits are a hard thing to break, but these habits need to be broken. I know that I am a good person, and have excellent values and kindness. I must forget about the people that bring me down because they don't help me they only hurt me. I must go back to the drawing board, and keep things simple. I can start this off by meditation, exercise, communicating with peers, hard work, preparation, music, singing, experience, not letting others dictate who I am, feeling good about myself and what I'm doing, creating a better environment for me to flourish. I don't know the answers but I it is imperative that I get out of this funk immediately. It's not going anywhere and it won't unless I do something now. Tomorrow will be the first day of the rest of my life. No longer will I waste it away, every minute will be spent living, by any means.

|Where I'm At
I've come to the point in my life where I want to start fresh, again. For a huge chunk of my life I have always felt like if I was somewhere else my life would be more interesting, fun, and happy. I have battled with this for a long time. It is a battle between wanting something that you don't have and appreciating what you do have. No one else but you makes your life. I always felt like your environment can have a huge impact on your life. Living and growing up in New Jersey, I was fortunate to meet and befriend some great people. I didn't know how good I had it until it was gone. That was the only way that I could see what I had in New Jersey. I have now been in Rohnert Park/Santa Rosa for more than 4 years. During those 4 years not a day has gone by that I have seen myself living somewhere else. I have flirted with transfering to USF or UMD. San Francisco is a city that I have been wanting to live in for some time now. I have talked about moving there but I have never followed through with it. It's expensive and two things are required in order to live there. 1) A decent paying job, and 2) one or more roommates. It isn't a huge market for sports which is what I want to obtain a career in. I need to continue to try to find a job there. I feel I am ready to start a new life. I'm ready for a new experience. My imagination runs wild when I think of living in the city. Whether its SF, LA, NY it would be such a unique and exciting adventure to live there. SF in particular, there would always be something to do. Music, restaurants, clubs, bars, anything that I wanted would be at my finger tips 24 hours a day. Whenever I'm in SF, I feel like I'm at home. The air is full of excitement, hope, it's a place I feel where your dreams can come true. There is so much out there in the world that I need to experience. Life is knocking at the door, and I have to answer it. The feeling is deep inside of me, I need to feed it so that I can feel content with myself. You can do anything that you part your heart in to, I just have to set my goal and pursue it hard. I'm tired of talking about it, I need to live it, now.

Rejection has become a daily part of my life. Whether its women, jobs, or friends, I have experienced a lot of rejection lately. I have just come to an understanding however on a positive way to deal with rejection. My motto is that for whatever reason sometimes beyond my control sometimes not, I will become rejected, but the key is to bounce back from the rejection by not letting it effect my confidence. The more I apply myself to getting what I want, the more likely I am to succeed in obtaining that goal. The more jobs that I apply to, the more women that I holler at, the more times I call friends, will increase my chances of success. I have to come to the realization that their is a thin line between things you can and cannot control. If a girl decides that she doesn't want to go out with me after I make a strong pitch, that means she isn't interested and I need to move on. I can't control how the girl feels about me. I can control how to handle the situation. Instead of feeling sad and depressed that she doesn't want to go out with me, I can use that energy on trying to find another girl to go out with. This is an obstacle to say the least, and won't come easy, but a lot of things in life don't come easy. You get out of things what you put in to them. Applying for jobs is another example of this. Instead of becoming discouraged after continually applying for jobs and being rejected I need to focus that energy on trying harder and using different techniques to apply for jobs. I believe there are three phases of life, surviving, struggling, and living. At one point when I was without a home and dealing with the daily grind of working the night audit, sleeping in my car and on the floor, I was surviving. Now that I am settled in a lovely new home and I have quit my job and found an exciting new job doing what I love, I am struggling. From the surface you would think that I am living, but if you look hard you can see that there are pieces missing in my life that I need to find and hold on to. A woman is the first thing that comes to mind. I have learned that I need to pick up the old motto you have nothing left to lose once again and bring it to another level. I need to make moves, show confidence, be myself, and have in the back of my mind that time is short. I need to believe that I can mean more to a woman than they can mean to me. I have a lot to offer. The other thing missing is my sense of content. I have struggled with this issue my entire life. I am never satisfied with where I am and I feel that if I am somewhere else I will live a more happy life. This can or cannot be the case. I need to make the best out of what I have or don't have everyday. I need to recognize that I won't truly appreciate what I have until its gone. I may not know the right way to go about accomplishing these things but the important thing is to learn as I go. I am entering a new phase in my life-post graduation, it looks like a battlefield with dead soldiers and skeleton heads, but beyond that is a tropical beach. I am in control of my life.

|Haven't Done This in a While
I haven't written in this for a number of years. I decided to try and get back in to it when a student from my class used it for his presentation. Whenever I have time to think which is usually when I am alone, I think about my life. Overall I feel that college is not what I expected or wanted it to be. I'm not sure if it's because of where I am or if it's me as a person, maybe it's a mixture of both. There is a culmination of things that I feel should be different, than what they are. My friends, girls, this town, people, this school, should be different. I think that the clique of friends that I hang out with aren't the type of people that I enjoy doing things with. There was a time when I shared the same similarities as them, but I feel that that time has passed. I am 21. I want to go out, do things that I've never done before, meet new people, experience and embrace life. To me people and the friends around you are one of the most important things in life. These cliques in college don't help either. As a senior I feel that I am stuck in a clique that I can't get out of. Girls I believe are the biggest problem and obstacle in my life right now. I think about girls the most. I believe that if I can find someone special in my life and fall in love, then a lot of my concerns and worries will fall through the door. I believe that I have the potential to be happy if I can be in a relationship. I need to find a single chick. It seems that every girl is in a relationship here. This town is boring. Nothing ever happens in Ropo. The only sources of entertainment really are movies, and alcohol. In addition, this is not a college town. This town doesn't care about college students. There is no downtown Ropo. My school I feel lacks a lot of things that other schools have. There needs to be a connection between the school and the students. The students voices need to be heard. People out here I feel are different than me. People don't share the same values as me. People aren't nice out here. In college everyone is in their own world. People are egocentric, they only look out for themselves. I feel like a loser in college. I want to do so much more than what I am doing. I want to go to the bars but I have no one to go with. I go to parties by myself. My friends are lame. This is the time that you should be having the time of your life. Gettin drunk, procastinating about homework, staying up till 4 am, fucking, fucking, fucking. This is my last hoorah. I have one semester to go, and that's it. I'm in to the real world, workin a 9-5 for 40 years. Sometimes I feel like I'm getting beat up by the world. What did I do to deserve this? But, I have to look at it as an experience. I think that I will learn from this experience and appreciate things a lot more. I have to stay positive in the midst of all these negative things in my life. I have to set goals. Take small steps, then larger steps. I have made a valuable effort to make the best of things. But I think that the next step is to make something out of nothing. I have a challenge and I can overcome it. I have learned that my story needs to be heard. I can't keep quite, when I speak I feel good. When I am quite, I think too much. I know the things that I need to do, I just need to do them.

|They Preach in Rap Music
One of the good things about rap music is that they really preach what they're saying. And I personally like the feeling of being preached to. It fills your head with ideas, thoughts, etc. all in one or two lines. Has anyone actually understood what Dre is actually saying in Bombs over Bagdad. If you look at the lyrics it's awesome. He talks about so many things in life that you can relate to while rhyming it at the same time, which makes it so much sweeter. 2pac does the same thing, and it's awesome. It's almost as if they command what they're saying, while in rock music they question it. The good thing about rock music is their concerts tho, their concerts are amazing. I don't think Hip-hop concerts are nearly as good as rock concerts.

|McDonalds or Applegate? that is the question
I had training at McDonalds yesterday. The positives are my managers relatively nice, my hours are pretty good I have to work from 3:00 to 9:00 on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The pay is ok it's like $90 a week I guess thats a positive and a negative. The negatives are the employees don't seem that nice. I dont know where everything is on the register and I'm really slow. The manager had to give everyone a larger fry cause I made them wait so long. I could work at Applegate I'm basically hired, I just have to give this guy my social security card and then he said he would schedule me for training. I'm not really sure which job is easier as of yet. The bad part about Applegate is that he said the nights on Weekends are the busiest so I'd probably have to work then. So the McDonalds hours are probably better. Also he said that the most I can work is 5 hours a day and I work 6 hours at McDonalds so I'd get paid more at McDonalds but if I worked at Applegate I wouldn't have to work as long. I know nobody reads this but if you do can you answer this question for me and post it up. Would you rather work at McDonalds or Applegate?

|Bar Mitsvah and Arizona
Arizona was pretty good. We stayed in this hotel that was right next to a water park which was really convienient. I still have my wristband. It was a small waterpark it had 3 slides, one of those tidal wave pools, and one of those rivers where u can relax on your tube. I mainly just went on the waterslides, and those things are kinda dangerous. If you don't cross your legs and arms your going to get heart and when you get to the bottom you get a major wedge to go along with ass soreness. Alex's bar mitsvah was pretty good. I had to give everyone programs and prayer books so I missed part of the ceromony. I had to do the blessing for wine which was incrediably easy, originally I was going to put the torah away. If I had to do that I guarantee you I would of dropped it and had to fast for the rest of my life. After the bar mitsvah we went to the dinner which was at this Italian restaurant. It was pretty good food, and it was so great getting attention from the waiters. I didn't get the kind of attention that Alex did but I still got some since I am his brother and all. I think I had like 3 cherry cokes, and there pizza was mad good. Alex did his candle lighting really bad. He made fun of everyone that he asked to come up and light the candle. Me especially, he said something like you give me horrible advice, you beat me in basketball and got height like Yao Ming. And it wasn't just me that he did it bad for, it was basically everyone. Alex took too much medication so we had to go the hospital on Monday night. It was pretty funny, there were so many Mexican people watching tv in the waiting room. I was like hey chica get in my honda, hey holmes, hey papi. Then my brother was like I think they come here just to watch tv lol. We missed our flight on Monday because Alex had to go to the hospital so we took the one on Tuesday instead. It was like 113 degrees when we left. There's no humidity compared to here, it was still really hot though. We didn't get home till 2:00 am so me and Alex didn't go to school on Wednesday.
|Thursday, May 22nd, 2003|
I have to get up at 5:00 am tomorrow to catch a flight to Arizona. My brothers Bar Mitsvah is on Saturday. The hotel were staying at is supposely really nice. It has a water park and a basketball court, which I'm really looking forward to. I'm also looking forward to being on vacation for once. Instead of being bored in Montclair worrying about making plans with friends on a Saturday night, I'll be relaxing, and having fun in Arizona. I'll be gone for the whole Memorial Day weekend and I get to miss school on Tuesday, SWEET!!! I have to finish packing now, hopefully my wash is done. I really have to go to sleep soon, since I have to get up at fucking 5:00 in the morning.
|The Red Hot Chili Peppers Concert was Amazing!!!!!
This is what happended on Tuesday, the greatest day of my life. Me and Max got on a bus to New York, met his friend Anika who was pretty cool, at Barnes and Noble. They talked about sex cause she has this teen workshop where she has to teach kids about sex and Max is in this Teen Pep class where he does the same thing, so he gave her some advice and gave her some lesson plans. After that we all ate dinner at this place called Dojos. It was the cheapest dinner I've ever had. It only cost me $5 bucks, and it was only like $11 all together. After that we met Todd at Tourneau. These people kept on asking us for Red Hot Chili Pepper tickets like we were scalpers or something, it was pretty funny. After we met Todd and got the tickets, we went to Penn Station to buy train tickets for the way home. Then we went to the concert, I got a t-shirt, the one from the last concert I went to had bullet holes and was really small since I went in 8th grade, so I really needed a new one. Then we went to our seats. They were really good, they were in the lower section in the middle of the stadium. Max said they were like 50 ft away from the stage. The opening act was the Mars Voleta. They were really bad except for the drummer. I could feel his beats tap my heart literally, it kinda hear. The rest of the band was horrible especially the guitarist and the singer. The second act was The Queens of The Stone Age, they were pretty good. "The Lost Art of Keeping A Secret" was incrediable. They played for like an hour from like 8:15 to 9:15. Anthony Kiedis did some covers of their songs with them, it was pretty cool. I didn't think he was all that great tho. The Red Hot Chili Peppers didn't come on till like 9:45. The first song they did was "By The Way" that was the only song that they did bad, and that was the only complaint of mine about the concert except for the guy who smoked 3 buds in front of us. I think I got a little high from the fumes lol. The security guy even had to warn him about it. The concert was abosoloutley amazing, they were so good that they had all of Madison Square Garden, a sold out crowd, standing during the entire show, a total of 2 hours. Me and Max were singing every line of every song, it was so great. Every song they did with the exception of "By The Way" was absoloutley amazing. During "Californication" John Frusciante played the nicest guitar solo. I found myself closing my eyes during the instrumental parts to fully feel and embrace the music. During "Give It Away" this guy got on stage and started dancing, it was pretty funny. The security guards had to drag him off stage and during all of this the band was still playing. Flea checked to see if the security guards had gotten him off stage and Anthony Kiedis was asking him if they got him all while they were still playing the song. The security guards of couse got him and they continued to play the song. We were going to take the 10:32 train home but we realized that if we did we would miss most of their act and it wouldn't of made sense to see more of Queens of the Stone Age then them, we came to see them. So we decided to take the 11:40 train. They played every song and mixed it up pretty well. They didn't just play "By The Way" which I was afraid of, they played alot of "Californication" and "Blood Sugar Sex Magik" as well. We left after they played "Under The Bridge", which was awesome. Their last song was "Me and My Friends", we didn't get to hear it cause we had to catch the train. I was really deaf in my ears and Max had no voice left and was deaf in his ears also. We were the last ones on the train. After we got off the train Max took me home. His house is right next to the train, we literally got off the train and his car was there. So I got home at 12:30 and that ended the best day of my life.
|Monday, May 12th, 2003|
Next week is going to be really really nice. It feels good to finally be able to look forward to something. I'm going to the Red Hot Chili Peppers concert with Max on Tuesday. Last time I went to their concert I had the best time of my life. That adrenaline rush is like no other, it's such a great feeling. Then on Friday I leave in the morning to Arizona for my brothers bar mitsvah. That should be alot of fun. Were staying in this nice hotel that has a basketball court and a water slide. So I'll be there for Memorial Day weekend and I think I even get to miss school Tuesday, SWEET!!!And then hopefully I'll get to see The Matrix this weekend. It'll probably be hard tho cause I bet it's going to be sold out everywhere. It looks mad good.

I haven't been having such great days at school lately. I blame it mostly for my lack of sleep. If I had more sleep, I would be alot more energetic during school, and that would help in me having a good day. Cause really the only way I can have a good day is if I, myself, make it a good day. I determine what the day will be like with my attitude. I'm very hypocritical in that I'm tired of my daily routines of getting up, going to school, walking home from school, doing homework, etc. But then when I have to do something new, I'm totally freaked out about it. It's like I'm a creature of habit, but I don't want to be one. I really gotta find a job, that's like one of my goals of the moment. If I get a job, I won't have to worry as much anymore.

|This Spring Break isn't all that good
Yea so this break has been pretty boring. I really wish I was going to some place on vacation like Hawaii, or California. That would be so awesome. Alot of people are visiting colleges, I even wish I was doing that now. I'm going to Philadelphia on Friday so at least I have that to look forward to. I especially look forward to going to Delasandro's, which is by far the best cheesteaks I have ever tasted. They also got this cherry soda that is oh so good.

|Enough of That
Today I had not one, not two, not three, but four tests and quizes. I stayed up till 11:30 last night studying for them, and yet I still believe I didn't do that well on them. And of course I needed to do well on them as they are the last of the marking period. I'm as hard a worker as you can get, but the mateial doesn't just come to me like some people. Some people do well on tests and quizes without even studying. Those people piss me off cause I wish I could do that. It also pisses me off that I have so much homework and studying to do. I do my homework/studying five days a week. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and I devote Sunday entirely to doing homework. So basially I do homework/studying for 10 months a year not including summer work. The only time I'm not doing homework 5 days a week is when I get a vacation which isn't a whole lot. It's hard to imagine how hard college is going to be, you probabably get tests everyday along with papers that you have to do. I guess it just gets harder and harder as your life goes by.

|It was a good weekend
Yesterday I went to the Nets vs. Magic game. It was really, really good. After watching Tracy McGrady live for 48 minutes, I can honestly say that he is one of the most, if not the most exciting player(s) in the league. After each shot that he made me and my brother uttered "ooooooooooooo!." As he scored 46 points, grabbed 10 rebounds, and dished out 13 assists. Delivering his second career triple double and first of the season. He also with this game, started a 40 + run of his own, just like that of Kobe Bryant. He had 52 points in his previous game against the Bulls. And Kobe Bryant has a streak of 9 40 + games which ties him to what Michael Jordan did in the 1986-1987 season. The Magic started off with a huge lead, then the Nets came back in the second half with Jason Kidd's fabulous play. Several possesions he assisted it to K-Mart for the alley-oop. Then the Magic came back with the marvelous play of T-Mac. After being double teamed and sometimes even triple teamed he showed his all around play by dishing it off to his teamates. One such teamate was Pat Garrity who went on a hot streak of 3 consecutive baskets in a row, which were all assisted by McGrady. Setting up the offense and sprinting down the court as if he was going to do something spectacular. One such spectacular event occured when he drove to the basket and scored a reverse layup, while being fouled. The Magic won eventhough Jason Kidd had a triple double as well. I witnessed two triple double in one game, how many times does that happen?

|All Star Players playing all star type games, trading deadline thoughts, and more
I think I might want to be a sports journalist when I grow up so I might as well start practicing now.
Tonight saw some of the best players in the league deliver all star type performances. His airness scored 43 points on 18 for 30 from the floor with 10 rebounds. Becoming the first 40 year old to score 40 points or more. The previous high was by Kareem Abdul Jabbar, when he scored 27, at the age of 40. Tracy McGrady aiming to keep his scoring title in hand, scored a career high 52 points in only 3 quarters of play. He came one point shy of tying the most points scored in a game in franchise history. Which was 53 by Shaquille O'Neal back in the 1990's. Allen Iverson tied a season high with 41 points on 12-23 shooting which by his standards is amazing. Jamal Mashburn tied a career high with 50 points on 17-33 shooting. Going 12 for 12 from the foul line.
Well the trading deadline is here and gone so let's look at the trades that took place. In an attempt to add an interior presence down low, the Orlando Magic traded Mike Miller, there second leading scorer, to the Memphis Grizzlies for promising rookies Drew Gooden and Gorden Giracek. In my opinion, this was a great trade for the Orlando Magic because it gives them an interior presence down low that they had been lacking since the Shaq days. They also received Gorden Giracek who can shoot the 3 and score, and also adds a strong unit off the bench that they also had been lacking. The Memphis Grizzlies must have received a fair end of the bargain as well, since Jerry West is the General Manager at the helm. Mike Miller gives the Grizzlies a 2 guard with they had been lacking, who can shoot the 3 and also score. In the players first games with their respective teams they played very well. Gorden Giracek scored 15 points and Drew Gooden had an outstanding night with 22 points and 11 rebounds on 11-16 from the floor. Mike Miller also had an outstanding night with 23 points on 11-17 from the floor. The blockbuster trade that went through right before the trade deadline included Gary Payton and Desmond Mason to the Milwaukee Bucks for Ray Allen, Kevin Ollie, and Ronald Murray, and a 2003 first round or second round pick. When I first learned of this trade I was nothing less than shocked. I convinced myself that the reports were false because a trade of this magnitude could never occur. Gary Payton, "The Glove", the most popular player in the Seattle Supersonics franchise, and franchise leader in games played, assists, steals, points, etc. couldn't of been traded. He wanted to end his career in Seattle but management couldn't fufill that wish. Instead they traded him along with former slam dunk champion Desmond Mason who was going to be part of the franchise's future for a sub-par Ray Allen. The trade also makes no sense because while Seattle now has no point guard, (Seattle traded Kenny Anderson to the Hornets for Elden Campbell) Milwaukee has 2 with Sam Cassel and Gary Payton. A trade of this kind makes me think of all the professional players that have recently switched teams after being on a team for virtually their whole career. The list includes Jim Thome, Tom Glavine, and now Gary Payton and Ray Allen. Off the top of my head only Edgar Martinez, Karl Malone, John Stockton, and David Robinson have played there whole careers on one team. Management's inability to resign a player or not trade a player has happened way to often in recent memory. This angers fans and more importantly down plays the game as a whole.

Oh man it was so awesome. We stayed at the Disney Beach Club Resort and my mom got us a sweet. It had Toon Disney so I got to see shows from back in the day like Talespin, Goof Troop, Aladdin, Ducktales, and Darkwing Duck. The weather was mad nice too, not to cold yet not to hot. It was in the mid to high 70's. On Sunday we went to Universal Studios Islands of Adventure. First we went on Spiderman, it was mad cool. You put on these 3d glasses and the bad guys are all up in your face. I was like "A yo get out of my face yo" So Spiderman got them out. Then we went on Jurassic Park, at first the dinasours are all harmless but then you see JPac. The Tyranasouras Rex takes over and you go down this big drop and you get all wet, it's mad cool. Then we went on Dudley Do Right, it was one of the longer rides and it was a water ride too. After that we went on this unicorn ride it wasn't all that great, it was a rollercoaster by the way. On Monday we went to Disney World. We wanted to go to all the parks but it was too expensive so we narrowed it down to MGM. First we went on Tower of Terror, which probably wasn't a good idea because we just ate. It goes 13 stories up and down mad fast, and I must admit there was a brief moment when I thought I was going to throw up. After the ride I got a picture of us of when we were on it. It was so great, it was like it was planned out or something. Me and David are looking at each other and were to the left and right of Alex, and Alex has this goofy scared look on his face. After that we went on Aerosmith's Rock n'Roller coaster. It goes from 0 to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds flat. It must have been one of the scariest rollercoasters I've ever been on. After the ride Alex got a picture of when we were on the ride. My glasses fell from my nose and I was trying to place them back but I couldn't so in the picture u see me tryin to put them back on and David and Alex are closing there eyes, and David looks like a fat sumo wrestler. After that we went on Star Tours which sucked, then Muppet Vision which sucked too. Then we went to Who Wants To Be A Millionare Play It! it's like the exact replica of the t.v. show. Your in the audience and you get to have a chance in the hotseat if you get enough questions right. The host was this Chinese lady that I found kinda mean. Whenever the guy on the hot seat would make a joke she would disagree with him. I mean that would suck so much if your the person on the hot seat, you have the guts to make a joke, and she doesn't even agree with you, that must be mad scary. After that we went on Honey I Shrunk The Kids, it was just this playground, and it really sucked. On the plane ride home it was mad turbulent. It was like 30 mph winds and stuff. I was like "this is scarier then some of the rides." I thought it was a mix between Tower of Terror because of the drops and Star Tours because of the left and rights.

The adrenaline rush, the energy, the feeling, just everything about that rush you get from a concert, it's just so great. One of the greatest days of my life came when I walked out of a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert. I can remember it so clearly, early April 2000, when I walked out of the collesium and felt so absoloutley amazing. The band's energy completly ran throughout my body, and I knew that I had been one of the hosts of this wonderful music. Man, I can't wait till I see another one of their concerts. I saw on their website that their going to tour in the U.S. in the spring. I'm most definetly going to their concert for my birthday present.
