Busy, busy, BUSY

Sorry for not blogging as often lately, I've just been swamped with work and other things going on. Anyways I just wanted to let you guys know I'm about to go listen to Joey Comeau from A Softer World give a speech. It should be interesting. I'll let you all know how it goes.

Finally Some Rest...

So this morning I woke up and realized I slept through my studio class, now normally this wouldn't be to bad but this is the second time it's happened. One more time and I will drop a letter grade. Therefore I'm going to try to turn myself around and get on a decent sleep schedule. I also poured myself a bowl of cereal and realized there was no milk so I skipped breakfast, next it was time to shower. It was enjoyable since I didn't have to rush but I got out... NO FUCKING TOWEL. So needless to say when I took a shit I made sure there was some toilet paper. All in all it was kind of a shit day, I'm in another one of those ruts that I just can't seem to get out of. I want to eat healthy, work out, get more sleep, wake up on time, you know normal things that people do. Oh hopefully there will be some sort of near death experience that will make me realize how short of time I do have.

Anyways I wanted to ask you my followers some things, first off would you rather see me blogging about personal experiences as I have been or social trends and stuff along those lines? That is what I intended it to be when I first started out with the blog. I wanted to see what made hip kids hip. Let me know your thoughts on that. Thanks everyone :D

Costa Rica!

I'm going to Costa Rica in December, San Jose to be exact. I hear it's a good time and a sin city. I really just want to go down there and do terrible things to all the cute latina girls.  Have you ever been there, any recommendations on things to do (besides women).

Also I've yet to travel outside of the country so anything I should know there as well?

Work, work, work...

Currently sitting at work trying to fight off this growing hunger in my stomach. I should eat but I don't enjoy fast food and I'm broke. I should start packing a lunch. I work at an in-house graphic design center at a local university. It's incredibly laid back but doesn't pay much at all. I've done some freelancing here and there, but I'm not motivated at all to do it. I hate dealing with people and money. I enjoy conversations with strangers and good friends, but when it comes to a business arrangement shit sucks. I usually just put off whatever job they give me until they start sending me emails daily asking me why it's not done. I then will do it just so they quit bothering me. Usually their pretty pissed off, but I get my money. I think I'd much rather just browse the internet, drink, or just be social. I need to be more motivated and start thinking about my future instead of just caring about what I'm doing this weekend. I guess I'm just venting my thoughts, I think I'll go get something to eat...

Drifting off to sleep...

I just got done at the studio again. I always procrastinate my work and it turns out really shitty, I'm not sure why. Maybe I'm not cut out to be an art major. I really don't care for most of my studio classes I just enjoy graphic design. I was thinking about possibly changing my major to something more useful like Geology, but that would require me to go to school for an extra two years at least. I really am terrified of growing older. I don't want to go out into the real world so I'm not rushing my college experience at all.

I hooked up with 5 different girls this past weekend, I only fucked two of them but fooled around with 3 others... I kind of feel bad. I'd like something more constant, but I cant find anything worth keeping around here. Maybe it's my problem? I haven't been in a relationship in a few years. Feels bad man...

What are you doing with your life? Are you in college? Are you happy? WHAT DRIVES YOU?

Sorry these are just my thoughts as I drift off to sleep, also take the time to watch this video if you haven't already seen it. It's a really good speech, from The Great Dictator, with some nice ambient music in the background.

Goodnight, hope to read your comments in the morning.

Why the Hip Bone?

So I've been thinking about what it means to be hip and cool these days. You've got hipsters, jocks, nerds, and way to many other labels that I really don't want to go into. And it seems that everyone is trying to follow some sort of style or movement. Now some people are more obnoxious about it and will let you know that they are modern and cool, aka Hipsters. I get called a hipster sometimes and I really don't mind. I mean I wear skinny jeans and thick rimmed ray-bans but it's a good look and I do get a lot of compliments. I really don't blame anyone for their choice of style and I just think everyone tries to express themselves. So why judge me because I dress differently? I'm not sure I guess I'm just ranting, BUT back to the point. Everyone is hip in some sort of way whether it is the music their listening to, the sports they watch, or the shoes on their feet. They are influenced by something in the media. Can anyone actually express themselves uniquely without jacking someone's style or look. I mean you're buying clothes that are designer or based off some sort of designer. You could make your own clothes, but wouldn't you be using some sort of template or standard. I'm not sure if I'm just being narcissistic or not. I just feel that everything has been done or has been thought of before. Everyone is hip in some sort of way and follows some sort of trend. Just my thoughts, what are yours?

I'm an UNCLE!

Just found out I'm an uncle last week, my nephew Billy the Kid! No photos of him as of yet. He's not technically my nephew, but he's my cousin also my best friends son. I can't wait to buy him his first PBR. So it was completely unexpected and he was born 3 days after they found out she was pregnant. It would of been nice if she didn't find out and just had a toilet baby. I'm not sure how I feel about the situation since I'll be seeing less of him due to the whole being a dad. There is also the little detail that he's 19 still in college and she's a 23 year old drop out. Yeah I'm not a huge fan. Anyways there has been lots of binge drinking and drug use to help me cope with the whole situation. I've just started experimenting with hallucinogens so we'll see how this all goes.
