Summer Has Arrived!

Another semester has come to an end and I’m so glad summer is here! This semester was tough but really rewarding. I was shocked to find that I did so well in my math class. It’s been so long since I’ve excelled in math, I guess I forgot I’m kind of good at it. I maintained a 99.something all semester and I scored a perfect score on my final, so needless to say, I’m just really happy about it.

I’m also not going to see the loud-ass gay in my math class anymore. I don’t know if I mentioned him to you on here, but there’s this other gay guy in my class who is just so obnoxious and loud and pompous. I felt I had to assert my alpha gayness. Loud-ass gay crossed me and he will RUE THE DAY!

I really enjoyed world history class and film class. My adulthood and aging psychology class was tough, but we’ll see how well I did. The same goes for my Mexican-American History class. Now I have a break before summer courses begin.

I’ve already made some summer plans that I’m very excited for. I always see summer as a fresh start and usually it’s the best time of my year. I hope this summer is no exception.

Let’s have some fun in the sun!

Labor Day Weekend!

Hi kids!

Happy Labor Day! I had a crazy labor day weekend. Friday night a few friends and I went out to a bar in Long Beach called Panama Joe’s and got VIP seating, prices, and food! Who knew food at a bar would be so delicious!

Saturday I attended a wedding with Tony. Let me tell you…this wedding celebration was authentically Mexican. No joke. Not only was delicious Mexican food served, but there was a live Spanish band performing and at one point there were traditional Chinelo dancers. Drums and trumpets, people jumping and dancing, it was quite the celebration.

After the wedding party we went to another AE party. It was a mardi gras theme and we got there way too early. Well, before long everyone arrived including some “hot totties.” Everyone was up in arms about hot guys at the party. It was a lot of fun.

But that, my friends, was not the end of Saturday night. Oh, no! We went out to a club in Anaheim afterwards where there were many many latino boys and girls. Last time I went to this club I was a bit “outspoken” and in a peculiar mood. This time around I was surprised to find that I ran into a a few guys I’ve dated. It was terribly awkward at first, but as usual, the party went on and I just had a good time. Oh! Tony and I decided to check out the dance floor on the second level and were pleasantly surprised to find a Mexican drag queen [more like tranny] lip syncing a Spanish ballad. How do I know it was a tranny, you may ask? Because she had boobs. In fact, she had one out and wearing a pastie. Oh yeah! Oh, and she was speaking rapid-fire Spanish that went a little something like this:

“blahblahblahblah-PENDEJA! blahblahblahblah-CULERO! blahblahPINCHEblahblah blahCONCHA– blahblahblah-NO-SE-CREAN-blahblahblahPUTA! blahblah-VIVAMEXICO!!!

The crowd went wild and were laughing their asses off. I was just trying to keep up but I was very entertained. Is there a Mexican version of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” perhaps? Hmm…maybe I should create it! Genius!

It turned out to be quite an eventful night for both of us and it was a great time.

Last Wednesday we also paid Club Lucky a visit at the House of Blues in Anaheim. That was also a wild and crazy fun night. I busted out my destroyed white skinny jeans. Let me just say this: those jeans can get me into a lot of trouble or get me cast in a reality TV show. 🙂

I’ve been pretty busy with school and setting up classes. I’m glad I have a set schedule now and I hope next semester I’ll be able to get all the classes I need to transfer. Selling textbooks has also taken up a bit of my time.

I post flyers around school advertising my textbooks from last semester and I sell them to students directly. Uhm…selling textbooks feels a lot like selling drugs. “Hey, did you bring it?” “Where can I meet you?” “Could you cut me a deal?” “What are you wearing? I’ll meet you by the building.” Talk about SUPER shady business. But in selling my textbooks I also learned that I’m an honest businessman. I try and help my fellow students make sure they’re buying the correct textbook. I’m SUCH a Mother Theresa. My good friend Jessica once told me, “You’re like…a female Jesus.”

So even with all the going out, I constantly find myself thinking about what I have to do the next day and how much homework I have. It’s sad to think that while I’m shaking what my momma gave me I’m also thinking about writing reports for my speech communication class. Hmm…

They had a great sale at my workplace for the weekend. It was 20% off all merchandize. I know a lot of stores had some great sales. Did anyone take advantage?

Oh, I decided to give up soda and try to eat healthier. I think this is my second week and although it’s difficult, it feels good make that effort. It’s kind of odd because it feels like I’m learning how to eat all over again. I’ve just been talking about getting healthy for a while and I wanted to take some steps in maintaing a healthier diet without going overboard with a crazy cleanse or something. I’m also staying active with my yoga class and I attended a dance class last week that nearly killed me, but it was an extraordinary workout. Step by step, I’m getting there.

Hope the weekend was good for everyone, too.


Back to School: Yoga and Eye Candy

School is back in session and let me tell you, I’m ready for Fall fashion. So needless to say, I was so excited to finally be able to try out some of the outfits in my closet. I have some really great sweaters and some outerwear that I’ve been dying to wear out. That’s all fine and dandy except…it’s like a thousand degrees outside.

My goodness, it’s been freakin’ hot! I’ve had to modify some of my looks to deal with the heat. Don’t get me wrong, I love sunny southern California and fun in the sun, but I have classes in the morning and I’m out and about during the peak heat moments. Well, I’ve been trying to make the best of it. Even though school’s started, it still kind of feels like summer. I went swimming over at Jessica’s recently and I’ve been able to have some really great times. It’s kind of weird that I’ve had some really great summer moments when it’s coming to an end. Well, I think I’ll just enjoy them either way.

It’s been tough to register for classes this fall. I got most of the classes I need, but there are a few that I haven’t had luck with. Rejection feels so strange! It’s awful. But here’s what I foresee happening, based on my experiences, the professor who rejected me will later fall in love with me. LOL

I still need to buy textbooks and a few materials. Oh! I’m taking yoga this semester! I’m so excited! I’ve never taken a yoga class and I’ve always wanted to. I need to pick out a cute yoga mat and little yoga mat sling. So cute.

So after an awkward first week of school, sitting through introductions and reviewing syllabi, I’m glad it’s out of the way and we can really get into the material and get some work done. I think I have one of those personalities that I like getting “in the zone” and there’s no stopping me.

There are some interesting things I’ve noticed this semester about my school:

  1. There are many more attractive people on campus than ever before! Every day as I’m walking around I always think, “Wow, what happened? Eye candy.”
  2. While noticing how many hot guys are on campus, I also noticed that it seems like most of the black guys at my school are in sports. Why is it that most black guys at my school are part of the athletics department?
  3. Men’s athletics at school are made up of mostly black guys and white guys. And a few Latinos, of course. Most of women’s athletics are mostly white girls. LOL Just strange.
  4. I’m an honors student, and being in an honors class has its pros and cons. It’s a smaller setting, so there’s a greater opportunity to have discussions about the material and really understand and learn about what’s going on in the class. It’s also nice to not feel like the smartest student in the room.There are a lot of really bright minds in the honors classes and I often find myself challenged by my peers, which is great. As far as the disadvantages of being in an honors class…well, how can I put this…some of my peers, although very smart, aren’t exactly what you’d describe as…cool. Or social. I think there are some people that are just so smart that they aren’t concerned with being cool or looking “fashionable” or whatever since they’ll be ruling the world later on. [I, of course would rather do it all!] I’m really not too concerned with what everyone’s wearing, but it is a bit strange having socially awkward people in a small setting.

I’m glad the semester has begun and I know it’s going to be a great one! I like school, so I’m excited for the next sixteen weeks and I’m especially excited for yoga. The eye candy isn’t too bad either.
