Just made my first student loan payment.
I mean, my parents have been paying for a while, but they finally made me start paying. Dammit, responsibility.
I know I’m not a fighter. That’s why I carry a whistle. I’ll...– Kevin Hart
Comedian Kevin Hart is hilarious.
We used to watch his standup while getting drunk. Wonderful half-memories.
Late breakfast: Crunchy Peanut Butter Clif Bar and...
I didn’t feel like eating anything at 7:40 this morning so I didn’t. But then I got hungry around 10 something.
I literally clicked my heels because my on-call...
So now it’s Halloween and my week of on-call hell is over. Now I can relax and not have to constantly be on my evil BlackBerry and doing site checks and fixing issues. Free feels good.
I miss late nights at the library, doing...
I should start doing some research and writing stuff for fun. That could be interesting and be a good stress reliever.
I remember the days before I was an Apple fanboy.
It was such a sad, sad, user-unfriendly-experience-filled existence.
Do you ever?
Do you ever start typing out a thought and it looks like this: e0 you 3vr wq45 5ypint qne i? And you think, Oh shit! I forgot how to type! And then you realize that your fingers were just on the wrong row of the keyboard.
Researching small business loans.
You know, for when I decide to do that whole my-own-marketing-and-branding-design-group-company thing. It might be sooner than I thought.
I've been on call this week and weekend. And I've...
I’m glad my work phone is a BlackBerry. If it was an iPhone, it’d give me a reason to hate Apple. I’ve been on call to deal with site issues and shit. I’m fine with being busy at work but this whole on-call thing is so reactionary. I’d rather people just get it right the first time.
The Cardinals don't deserve this win.
I mean, who cancels a game on a forecast of rain? You start the game and then cancel if it begins to storm and lightning. They canceled so their good pitcher could play in Game 7. So they basically cheated their way to a World Series win. This has been another edition of Unpopular Sports Opinion with Damon.
Had a good day at work today.
Yes, I was busy as fuck. But it wasn’t a stressful mindfuck like yesterday was. So, that’s good.
Today is going much better than yesterday.
I'm not a crier.
But tonight I called my parents on my drive home. And I cried. I just needed to talk my way through all the shit I’m feeling right now. And I didn’t expect to cry, but I did. And my parents listened. They let me talk things out and then they gave me their advice. And they told me that they love me—which made me cry more. I didn’t realize how much I miss being home and...
Misoverheard at Work

It's amusing how many of my old song recordings...
You can hear where I mess up and then I just pause and mutter some curse words. It makes me laugh.
I look forward to my next job.
I look forward to having a job that I enjoy. When I’m able to write and create and make a difference, it becomes something I enjoy. And that’s what I want in a job: something that doesn’t feel like a bother, something I’m excited about doing. And, sadly, my current job doesn’t make me feel that. My father is one of the wisest people I know. I talked this decision...
I don't understand the whole...
I mean, don’t you always wear clean underpants?
Atonement is one of those gorgeous films that...
[Semi-spoiler alert] The brutal honesty of the ending just crushes me every time I see it. There’s just a rage I can’t help but feel when it gets to the point of Briony Tallis admitting she ruined the lives and loves of Robbie and Cecilia. It breaks my heart every time.
Watching Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part...
I forgot how emotional this movie is. It’s the perfect culmination of the series. I mean, the whole bit about Snape’s love for Lilly. And how Harry saves Malfoy. And when Fred dies. It’s just an emotional film. A fantastically great film—but emotional.
bgilliard replied to your post: I counted my underpants today. You also have 47 shirts then? Forty-seven plaid shirts? No. But all my plaid shirts, dress shirts, polos, sweaters, and pullovers? Way more than 47.
I counted my underpants today.
I have 47 pairs of underpants. This is the key to going a month and a half without having to do laundry.

Finally doing laundry today.
I’ve been at the apartment for nearly six weeks and haven’t done laundry since being here—until today. I’ve got four massive loads of laundry going right now. And by massive, I mean large washers filled to maximum capacity. But, yesh, I’ll be glad to finally have all my plaid clean again. One load of laundry is entirely plaid shirts.
Vomiting feels so awful
But now I feel a little better.
Some days are better than others.
Today was a decent day. Not perfect. Not terrible. Got some good news. Stressed a little. Overall, a well-rounded day.
It's one of those afternoons where I need really...
It’s the kind that normally annoys me when it’s done by others, but today I need it. It’s been a crazy busy day. I’ve accomplished a ton, but my eyes and head hurt now. Gracias, corporate America.

Go stock up now. That’s nearly half-price.
It seems much later than it actually is.
The days are getting shorter.

I’m psyched out of my head right now.
Feeling antsy today.
I can feel good things in my future. I am a talking fortune cookie.
Moving forward with my tattoo.
Got an initial quote and am in the process of setting up my initial consultation. Excited to finally get the work done.
You have no idea how much I want this job. I'd...
You know how sometimes you stumble on a job...
Yeah, that happened to me. Late last week I saw a listing for a job with an incredible company in New York City. They’re not a huge corporation and they are socially-conscious and -responsible—which is exactly what I want. So, I couldn’t get it out of my head all weekend. Tonight I applied for the job. Now I wait to hear back.
Speed to Work
All I can think about it something that an executive here told my group when I was an intern over the summer. He said, and I’m paraphrasing, that you should find a job that makes you want to speed to work in the morning. You should not settle for anything less that something that makes you jump out of bed in the morning, excited to get to work. My job does not make me want to jump out of...
You ever watch How To Make It In America?
It’s in its second season on HBO and it’s great. It’s about a couple guys who are trying to start a clothing company in New York City. Of course, with this comes the problems of starting ones own business. And the good and bad of everyday relationships with friends and acquaintances. How To Make It In America is honest and real. It feels like it could be based on a true story....
