New Year, New Outlook
It’s a new year and my life, as usual, is continually changing.
Life’s constant evolutionary cycles fascinate me and I find myself enjoying life everyday.
I know some of you have been aching to know what’s been going on in my life. I apologize for the brief hiatus on my blog, but I’ve been busy enjoying life! If you follow me on twitter or are my friend on Facebook then you’ve been somewhat updated on some of my adventures. If not, check out the newly updated menu at the top of the page and check me out!
I’d also like to announce that I’ve made some changes to the site, in case you haven’t noticed and I’ve launched a video on vimeo. I find I can surpass the stupid music property laws that youtube has on vimeo. I want to keep this blog fun and interesting and some time to time a bit personal so you guys know what’s going on with me. Tell me what you think about the changes!
I’ll have more of a chance to update now that the semester is starting again and I will once again find myself avoiding homework and procrastinating, pretending deadlines don’t exist and pulling all-nighters. No, I intend on being more on top of things this semester. Last semester went well and I’m glad I earned good grades. I’m excited for this new semester and I look forward to discovering my professors and new courses.
I’m taking math (shoot-me-please), psychology: adulthood and aging, TV/film, Chicano history (gotta get in touch with my ROOTS, ese), and Shakespeare. Yes, I know, Shakespeare. Some have asked why I would do such a thing to myself. Others have looked at me with pity and sorrow. I’ve decided to take the class because 1) it fulfills a general education requirement to transfer and 2) I really haven’t read or studied a lot of shakespeare. In high school I read the basic plays and I’ve even seen a few plays, but it wasn’t until my lit class last semester that I actually got a chance to review form and study a lot of poetry, including Shakespeare. So yes, the idealist student in me actually cares about learning and I feel I can greatly benefit from this class, not to mention find that it’s yet another challenge I step up to. EducatedGay.
I took a trip out to Las Vegas last month. I went with some friends and it was an amazing trip!
There was, of course, plenty of drinking and fun, but we kept it classy and watched Phantom of the Opera at the Venetian. Holy…smokes. It was…unbelievably good. The theater itself was beautiful and all the effects and music and simply everything was just so good. I’m so glad everything worked out so well. Vegas proved to be a very relaxing and sort of care-free experience. Ugh. Loveit.
Christmas was really great. I spent it with family and it was just really rewarding and special to take the time to spend time with people I love. New Year’s was fun. I spent it with friends at a party in LA. It was a fun festive season!
There have been some really crazy changes going on in my personal life. There are many times where I feel acutely conflicted internally and others when I’ll feel in almost perfect harmony with the world. It’s almost as if there’s been a thorn in my heart and I just ignore it most of the time, but sooner or later I’ll have to deal with it and tend to the wound. I hope I’m ready when that day comes.
I’ve gotten some feedback saying people enjoy reading about my life on this blog, so here you are! Haha
I hope everyone had a fun and safe holiday season. Any year’s resolutions? Mine’s to carpe diem and maybe do a little traveling. I have another Vegas trip coming up next month. It has hot-tranny-mess written all over it. Loveit.
