TBT - 081817 [18 May 2017|10:36pm]
[ mood | anxious ]

OMG, first of all, these new updates are crazy. I've not been on LJ since my last post (please scroll down)

So - fast forward from then, I currently live in Los Angeles, CA. I have a boyfriend, a cat, and my car was recently totaled by an angelino. I'm on my way to becoming an Executive Producer. It's going to take longer than I've ever imagined; however, I'm not going to stop! I keep visualizing my sucess, and these posts and rants will come to aid me in the future. If anything else, it's a great reminder of where I'm at, where I've come from, and has allowed me to always be ME!

Nothing too much to say for now. I have to get comforatable spiling my guts out again.

im a big boy now :) [14 Apr 2011|10:52pm]
this week has really helped me self reflect and really understand who i am, what i love and who i really care about! it started sunday in fact. i was picked to help clean the yoga studio for free practice and so i was super excited to do so! i was like cinderella cleaning the whole house b/c she was going to go to the ball...yet my ball was my free pass to 530am yoga on monday morning! after my practice i realized i love bikram and the 90 min practice was what i was missing in my life! tuesday also brought some findings i sent my family a mass text message (i know look @ us with paid cell phone bills) i sent out a text saying i love my nieces and nephews. now if u really know me u know im good with kids and yet i dont want any of my own *yet* but at this point i can only handle them in doses, as my bff likes to say. so previous to this mass mailing i had a huge nightmare, one that woke me up in tears yet i couldnt cry in front of the turk, that would be to much? plus he looked so cute zzzzz :) so i tossed and turned and as soon as i got to work i sent out the mailing. i know calls would have been best but hey baby steps...come on! in the message i was restating my true love for family. that even tho i typically dont go around much i really deep down inside love all my family and the thought of loosing them or pain they might face in any situation brings me to tears and always makes me avoid the thought all together cause we all know i avoid confrontation. but i feel i did the right thing. my friend walter said it best. life is to god dam short to not live and love...or something like that. :) WEDNESDAY evening was magical. ive found a great group and even more amazing subgroup of friends who i can share stories and thoughts and food and drinks with. shane, walter, and philip u guys are my new found brotherhood. i love yall bitches and even after dinner i kept thinking how much amzing us 4 are together. thanks! of course i have to mention my turk again :) baby u are one of the best things 2011 brought me askim! i can now understand what a relationship is, how it hurts both of us to be apart and not just me :/ im not one for huge i wonder if, blah blah i like the way we r going and am happy everyday!
lastly, as i look around me i see positive energy. people wanting good and real friends who like to have a cocktail here and there but go to work hard the next day, seek new adventures and networking opportunies everyday, decide to run marathons, like helping others, share and laugh and cry! all amazing people! im happy that at 26 ive found what it is to be a loved, happy with your true self and seeking enjoyment out of life, family and friends! because when its all said and done i want to tweet, my gay life was filled with amazing family and friends all who loved me for me and shared it 100% all the way to the end. #dramatic

Magical Marathon...coming up soon! [01 Jun 2010|04:05pm]
so in an effort to get my running back into what it used to be, my bff, b, and I have thought seriously about running another marathon. and if the LAS VEGAS rock and roll marathon doesnt seem to wow u...i have just the race.

B and i have been talking about doin the Walt Disney Goofy Marathon! get this ya'll its a half marathon on sat, and a full marathon on sunday! can u imagine! the body can do amazing things and well, 2011, thats when we are expected to run! im excited, no joke!
this will make up for failing my original goal of 2 marathons in one year :( but no worries, i've began my training, today @ 5am started with a 6 miles run down to katy trail. omg here comes summer early runs :) joy!

another goal that has came as of today, 1st of the month is no eating out for an entire month. and oooo let me tell ya it was tested today...my boss came into town and wanted to take us out to lunch. I said no, and ate my yogurt w/ bananas. :) thanks bff, those market bananas were yum!

so change is coming, yay new month, new opportunities new goals, new boys!? lol its too soon to tell.

oh the icing on the cake, my weight in for my office biggest loser competition was great. i lost 8lbs since last week. (during memorial weekend)

i guess all the booty dancing on sunday, really did help!

*keep going, stronger than you know*

Random Thoughts of the Day: [14 Oct 2009|10:46am]
[ mood | content ]

Random Thoughts of the Day:

I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

I don't understand the purpose of the line, "I don't need to drink to have fun." Great, no one does. But why start a fire with flint and sticks when they've invented the lighter?

Have you ever been walking down the street and realized that you're going in the complete opposite direction of where you are supposed to be going? But instead of just turning a 180 and walking back in the direction from which you came, you have to first do something like check your watch or phone or make a grand arm gesture and mutter to yourself to ensure that no one in the surrounding area thinks you're crazy by randomly switching directions on the sidewalk.

I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

The letters T and G are very close to each other on a keyboard. This recently became all too apparent to me and consequently I will never be ending a work email with the phrase "Regards" again.

Do you remember when you were a kid, playing Nintendo and it wouldn't work? You take the cartridge out, blow in it and that would magically fix the problem. Every kid in America did that, but how did we all know how to fix the problem? There was no internet or message boards or FAQ's. We just figured it out. Today's kids are soft.

There is a great need for sarcasm font.

Sometimes, I'll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and suddenly realize I had no idea what was going on when I first saw it.

How the heck are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.

I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.

The only time I look forward to a red light is when I'm trying to finish a text.

Was learning cursive really necessary?
< SPAN style="COLOR: black; FONT-FAMILY: 'Verdana','sans-serif'">
Lol has gone from meaning, "laugh out loud" to "I have nothing else to say".

I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

Answering the same letter three times or more in a row on a Scantron test is absolutely petrifying.

Whenever someone says "I'm not book smart, but I'm street smart", all I hear is "I'm not real smart, but I'm imaginary smart".

How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear what they said?

Every time I have to spell a word over the phone using 'as in' examples, I will undoubtedly draw a blank and sound like a complete idiot. Today I had to spell my boss's last name to an attorney and said "Yes that's G as in...(10 second lapse)..ummm...Goonies"

What would happen if I hired two private investigators to follow each other?

While driving yesterday I saw a banana peel in the road and instinctively swerved to avoid it...thanks Mario Kart.

MapQuest really needs to start their directions on #5. Pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

< /B>Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

I find it hard to believe there are actually people who get in the shower first and THEN turn on the water.

Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.

I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.

Bad decisions make good stories

Whenever I'm Facebook stalking someone and I find out that their profile is public I feel like a kid on Christmas morning who just got the Red Ryder BB gun that I always wanted. 546 pictures? Don't mind if I do!

Is it just me or do high school girls get sluttier & sluttier every year?

If Carmen San Diego and Waldo ever got together, their offspring would probably just be completely invisible.

Why is it that during an ice-breaker, when the whole room has to go around and say their name and where they are from, I get so incredibly nervous? Like I know my name, I know where I'm from, this shouldn't be a problem....

You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you've ma de up your mind that you just aren't doing anything productive for the rest of the day.

Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after DVDs? I don't want to have to restart my collection.

There's no worse feeling than that millisecond you're sure you are going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.

I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten page research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.

"Do not machine wash or tumble dry" means I will never wash this ever.

I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Damnit!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voicemail. What'd you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run away?

I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.

When I meet a new girl/boy, I'm terrified of mentioning something s/he hasn't already told me but that I have learned from some light internet stalking.

I like all of the music in my iTunes s, except when it's on shuffle, then I like about one in every fifteen songs in my iTunes.

Why is a school zone 20 mph? That seems like the optimal cruising speed for pedophiles...

As a driver I hate pedestrians, and as a pedestrian I hate drivers, but no matter what the mode of transportation, I always hate cyclists.

Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.

It should probably be called Unplanned Parenthood.

I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

I think that if, years down the road when I'm trying to have a kid, I find out that I'm sterile, most of my disappointment will stem from the fact that I was not aware of my condition in college.

Even if I knew your social security number, I wouldn't know what do to with it.

Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet my ass everyone can find and push the Snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time every time...

My 4-year old son asked me in the car the other d ay "Dad what would happen if you ran over a ninja?" How the heck do I respond to that?

It really pisses me off when I want to read a story on CNN.com and the link takes me to a video instead of text.

I wonder if cops ever get pissed off at the fact that everyone they drive behind obeys the speed limit.

I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lites than Kay.

The other night I ordered takeout, and when I looked in the bag, saw they had included four sets of plastic silverware. In other words, someone at the restaurant packed my order, took a second to think about it, and then estimate d that there must be at least four people eating to require such a large amount of food. Too bad I was eating by myself. There's nothing like being made to feel fat before dinner.

Inaugural Regional Gulf Coast Crew Leader Training Takes Place in North Texas [16 Jun 2009|09:50pm]
[ mood | ecstatic ]

The Dallas field office of the Student Conservation Association (SCA) will host a Gulf Coast Crew Leader Training program that will train more than 30 crew leaders from Dallas, Houston, and Jacksonville, Florida. The crew leaders will impact over 100 students, who will serve their local communities through trail building and restoration, invasive plant removal, and providing other services in the interest of their communities and environment.

The SCA is the nation’s largest and oldest youth conservation corps, and this inaugural event is the first regional training in the organization’s 50 year history. From Saturday June 13 to Sunday June 21, participating crew leaders will receive instruction in various areas including work skills development, program management, media and communications, risk management, adolescent development, and CPR certification.

Work skills will be taught through hands-on participation in projects at three different locations in Cedar Hill, Texas: benches will be constructed and placed along the trails of Dogwood Canyon; the Gerry Garza Memorial Trail will be extended and cleared at Northwood University; and crew leaders will design a drainage structure at Cedar Ridge Reserve. These three projects will reinforce the importance of teamwork and cooperation.

I've noticed lately that I'm a fan of skip cheatham and the playground crew morning radio show on K104. I am hooked and with the 13 Spanish stations playing nothing but old Juanes, Shakira and Paulina Rubio, its the one good thing on in the Mornings. Im not dissing my Jagger Mafia on 105.3 but im not much of a sports junky and honestly the k104 crew makes me LOL

gangs suck-kids are stupid! [16 Apr 2009|09:34pm]
[ mood | angry ]

i found out my stupid nephew has a video of him fighthing this other gang member in an empty parking lot! ay no hott mess! and of course he thinks it awesome that one of his homeboys put up the video. (he does win) but thats beside the point, I dont understand why kids, people think being in a freaking gang is okay, and that its cool! believe me i grew up around it all my life. and i did great with chilling with them but when it came to the violence and gang lifestyle and culture, im sorry i rather go to class! recently i also discovered that kids are stupid to ditch school. skipping is so over rated and why do these kids dont understand!? I mean i guess @ one point i thought oo lets do it, but now i look back and say man i was stupid to ever even try. and well mom always wanted me to skip school and spend the day with her but i was like naw, i rather go to class. Hiding in the bathrooms between periods, ditching school for motel parties, why do kids do such things!? only to get a court date with more than 500$ in fees! when will the stuid youth come to realize these artificial friendships are not worth the $$ and time spent. B/c believe me, 7 years later, u meet up with some old "BFF's" and realize man, good thing i didnt pick that same road!

I'm happy I dont have kids,
I'm happy I have an education,
I'm happy I don't go to ghetto clubs, anymore,
I'm happy I don't have babydaddy drama,
