Hello LJ! [02 Jan 2016|06:34pm]
For anyone who still reads this journal: I FINALLY asked theexits to marry me and she said yes. We began this journey on LJ, I think it's fitting that we let everyone on here know. I love you, Livejournal, thanks for introducing me to my best friend 10 years ago.

Home? [01 Feb 2010|05:35pm]
I'm at my local library, using the internet. I didn't feel much different waking up today, in fact I've had a cold for almost two weeks and today I actually felt better. But now, sitting here and reading my LJ friend's list, and my Facebook, I was suddenly overcome with a really gross, disgusting feeling:

No matter what, I will never truly belong.

I'm not trying to be all boo-hoo, poor me. Yeah, the feeling sucks but really it's more of an observation. I know I've felt this way all my life. I can always seem to make friends easily enough, but it hardly ever gets to be real, extremely deep friendship. I always just seem to enter groups of people who have known each other forever, like the kids I know here in Ohio. Everyone knows everyone, and from a long way back. I don't feel like they exclude me in any way; it's just that I will never be what they are to each other.

It's hard not fitting in to a nice neat package. I'm Mexican, but not really. I'm American, but not really. I was raised Mormon, but I'm no more Mormon now than a fish is a bird. I sometimes feel like maybe I'll totally reconnect and feel like part of something if I move back to Mexico, like it will somehow click and some hidden parts of my genes will wake up. But my mom has clued me in to the reality that most likely I'll be MUCH MORE out of place in Mexico City 2010. Plus she worked really hard to keep me here, why would I just throw that away?

So, how can I be the Bee Girl from the Blind Melon video? How can I throw open those gates and see a whole field full of other Bee people dancing and waving me in? So far in life the only other Bee People I've come across are my brothers, and they're very far away, and both ready to start their own lives.

Dang that's a lot of typing.

TURTLE POWER! [22 Nov 2009|05:55pm]
HI GUYS. I'm sad that I've been ignoring LJ, (not completely...I still read everyone's journal) but I wanted to share this with you guys:

We're having a RADICAL TMNT PIZZA PARTY. I'm going to be DJ and host, spinning late 80s and early 90s rap, and there is going to be a BUNCH OF PIZZA! Afterward we will screen the 1989 classic!

I even made some prints to promote the party, as well as an Etsy shop to raise some money for the party. (So if you know any turtle fans, let them know about it plz!)

I miss you guys.

If you don't want to see an ugly side of me, don't read this. You've been warned.Collapse )

On Saint Bernards, first impressions and adoption processes [28 Aug 2009|11:29am]
So, last Wednesday, I went to visit my girlfriend at her mom's baked goods stand at theTuscarawas Valley Family Farm Market. I was pretty bummed that day, and was walking around when I saw the Tuscarawas Humane Society booth. I went over to ask about Saint Bernard rescue programs in Ohio, because I wanted a Saint Bernard but I wanted a rescue animal if at all possible. I was stunned when the girl looked at me, dumbfounded, and said "How WEIRD. We just got in a Saint Bernard puppy in like THREE DAYS AGO." It felt like fate. I instantly went from one of the worst moods ever to one of the best, and couldn't contain my excitement. When my roommate showed up in his car, I convinced him to take me out to see the puppy.

10 years is a long time [26 Jun 2009|11:54am]
I'm sleepy. I worked midnight to 8am, and rode my bike the two miles home. I really should of been sleeping two hours ago, but one of these songs came to mind, and so, ALL of them came to mind. This is (some of) what I was listening to 10 years ago. A lot has happened since then. A lot has changed. It's kind of bittersweet. I think sleep deprivation is making me melancholy.

Oh well.

What were you listening to 10 years ago?

It should be fun. If anyone from out of town would like to come, just remember: I have an abundance of room. You totally have a place to stay.

What do you guys think of the logo I made for the venue? What do you think of the name? I used the colors from the shield of The Knights of Pythias, since they were the ones who built our building, and our apartment used to be their clubhouse. The colors stand for Friendship, Benevolence and Charity. Pretty good stuff to be about, I think.

I watch my share of clever, interesting, or just plain goofy videos online. (In fact, you could argue that my livejournal is hardly ever personal and is mostly reposting of videos. Which is true, I guess, but only because I don't have my own digital camera.)

But today has been a stinking GOLDMINE of good videos, so if you've got some time, check these out!

Number One of the day:
