1. What I wanted then, and what I want now

    It’s been 2 years since I last wrote in my tumblr. I guess I stopped writing ever since I transferred from Mt. Sac to UCSB. Man.. that was such a fulfilling experience, I grew so much as an individual there, met so many people, and gained so much wisdom/knowledge. Now I am back at my hometown starting a fresh chapter of my life I suppose.¬†

    I’ve been reading my posts from years ago and although I still feel slightly same, my outlook on life has changed drastically, and continues to do so. I guess my goals are more realistic now instead of just ‘packing up my shit and leaving’. I now want a job, a good/stable job outside of the suburbs where life exists. I want to help out my mom with money so she doesn’t have to work as much and so she can retire comfortably. I also would like to have a balanced relationship with this great new wonderful girl I just met. I want to make plans and not just go with the flow anymore. I want to go to the bay area, road trip, maybe go to Jerusalem for 2 weeks and eat falafels n shit.

    I guess I’m not scared anymore. I used to be afraid to leave the vicinity of my home but I thank God for giving me not the courage, but the ability to learn from my past/experiences to develop an inner strength I used to not have.

    Cool, I’ll be back.

  2. Beach House - Myth

    I’m digging this band. Their music makes me feel closer to God.

    The song Wild is also the bees knees.


  3. "I was poisoning myself with alcohol and medicating myself. I was trying to numb things. I was trying not to feel things, and that’s ridiculous. It’s one of the dumbest things you can do, because all you’re doing is postponing the inevitable. Someday you’ll have to look all those things in the eye rather than try to numb the pain."

    Bob Sweeney: There was a moment, when I used to blame everything and everyone for all the pain and suffering and vile things that happened to me, that I saw happen to my people. Used to blame everybody. Blamed white people, blamed society, blamed God. I didn’t get no answers ‘cause I was asking the wrong questions. You have to ask the right questions.

    Derek Vinyard: Like what?

    Bob Sweeney: Has anything you’ve done made your life better?

  10. Three veteran mid-fielders in the premier league with similar attributes: They can strike the ball, unbelievable passing skills, and are leaders/teachers. Frank Lampard (Chelsea, 34) - Ryan Giggs (Manchester United, 39) - Steven Gerrard (Liverpool, 32). I call this, the old-man trinity. Respect.
