On another note, I think I can put my finger on why I found myself so boring with each passing year. Here’s to hoping I can change all that soon.
Don’t chain yourself in golden handcuffs. And inspiring others was what you set out to do. Yes, find a job that will support a family in the future. But as long as you work smart and never settle. It will all come in due time.

Wrapping up my the last paper I will ever write for college, and I find it amusing. Even just transferring into CSUF, I groaned at criteria such as “your paper must have at least 10 source citations.” And here I am, writing a paper with no minimum amount required, but still having 12 sources cited in my bibliography anyway.

Was giving a group presentation about a new service we were going to provide the other day. As we started I guess I made it too convincing that it would be an actual thing. My professor would stop us at parts during the presentation to give us advice on things we needed to fix about our service to be more successful. At first I thought she would be marking us down points based on these...
I remember when I was constantly taught and “encouraged” to elongate papers in English classes. Write fluff. Use incredibly elaborate/grandiloquent sentences and words just to stretch ideas out to make it seem like I’m “saying a lot” when I could get my point across with half the space. ”Your paper must be a minimum of X pages.” Then I transferred to a...
Bring food for the whole class for your presentation.

Waking up after a night of clubbing wondering why all our arms are hurting so bad, only to remember we spent 3 straight hours fist pumping the night before. Screaming the lyrics to the EDM song currently playing to random white guys trying to join our group on the dance floor. Being “That group” that kept screaming “AAAAYYYYYYYYY!” with each throwback song the DJ played...

Tonight marks the first time in five years that I will be watching a Kaba PACN. Tonight also marks the first time since I was 14 that I will be only watching a PACN/PCN and not performing in one. I still remember watching my first Kaba PACN at 14 and being amazed at not only Modern, but the cultural suites and skit too. It’s hard to believe that these past 4 years I’ve had a hand in...
-Saw a video of the explosion as it happened. Damn. =/ -Heard amputations had to be performed. If it happens to a runner, hopefully they have the spirit to keep moving after this. -Starting to see “Fake stories” spreading around using pictures from the tragedy as the backdrop. While the stories can be to an extent “heart-breaking,” Please please please, check to see if...
Self Reminder: look for Kentucky Route Zero: Act I
I remember back at Troy, we would complain that “spring break is no longer spring break cause we’d get homework during a time when we’re supposed to have a break wehhhhhhh” as if other high schools and colleges didn’t do the same thing. Now here I am, about to head out to a bar/coffee shop/restaurant to peer critique a classmate’s report during the start of...

“While gamers may hate the idea that the future belongs to microtransactions and smaller, mobile games, it’s hard to argue with where gamers are actually spending their money. EA isn’t focused on what you say, as a company it’s paying attention to what you do, and in this case they’re going to where they believe the money will be in the coming years.

A conversation a couple of weeks ago
“So where are you headed off to now?” “I’m gonna go visit some friends I haven’t seen in a while in Irvine.” “Irvine? Dude, that’s faaaaar.” “Yeah, but I hardly get to visit them anymore.” And with that, this stranger drops me off at my car. I hop in and let him take my parking spot. As I began driving out the structure and...

My mindset’s different. Two or three years of burning out, I started to become cautious about pushing myself. Scared I would get hurt again. Always looking back to the past and hoping I could become my old self. Wishing things would get better. Everything’s not necessarily perfect, but I’m looking forward now. I’m ready for what I need to do.
