saturday morning cartoons

damn, i woke up late. i was try­ing to catch and see whats new on sat­ur­day morn­ing cartoons—i guess i was just damn tired. went to d&b’s at the block last night for cook­ie’s bday; and yup, she was damn fad­ed when we got there. good times though.

but before then, we ate din­ner at koji’s. boy oh boy was it good. we ordered sev­en rolls of sushi think­ing that it will be a lot of food. ten, freakin’ ten min­utes lat­er maaaaaaan those dish­es looked like a ghost town.

mean­while, while we wait­ed, tom­my real­ly want­ed to get a pic­ture of the man­ag­er i guess. she was pro­l­ly hapa on her late 30’s, and she was hot. so cice­ly, var­i­ous times, tried to take a good pic­ture of her with­out her notic­ing it. so she tried doing the “ok jon i’ma take a pic­ture of you but i’m real­ly tak­ing a pic­ture of her behind you” kin­da deal. it did­n’t work. she tried with the whole table, try­ing it to jevon, tom­my, joe, and then me—mission failed haha good times.

oh man, in oth­er news, i’m on my third week with the com­pa­ny. so far so good… its a chill job since i’m just doing graph­ic design, some­thing i have also a pas­sion for. so i’m get­ting paid to do a hob­by which is bomb­diggety. this week, i con­cen­trat­ed on doing some ban­ners for some ad cam­paign from scratch. those take a long time to do, it’s kin­da like writ­ing an essay on a book… you take what you have read, and try to fit them all in the min­i­mum or max­i­mum pages that you were told to write; but instead, ban­ners can have pic­ture haha. so its like writ­ing an engi­neer­ing report, the dia­grams take almost half the page. aaaaaah school, the good ole’ days of pro­cras­ti­nat­ing.

joe­ma­ma brought up a good point last night. if we all went back to school and had the class­es we have had again, we would have got­ten at least B’s. it was a good the­o­ry that i wish we could have the chance to prove. think about it, for most of us, it took five years to know how to study. imag­ine know­ing what to read, how to write and take finals… that’s cake. yah… that and we’ll pro­l­ly be more lazy since we’ll have more free time to do stuff.

i don’t know, free time is hard to come by these days. at work, my hours go by fast because its a fun job. and every­one knows that when your hav­ing fun and doing work, time flies. but when you’re not, and you con­stant­ly look at the clock every minute (like dean and i use to do in most of our engi­neer­ing class­es)… the day seems to go in slow-mo.

so an advice to those want­i­ng their day to go by quick, space your work­load and try to have fun with it. i know most peo­ple hate what they do, but just be thank­ful that you have a job. don’t wor­ry be hap­py… lot­to dreams can come true someday—more like when you’re eighty-some­thing-years-old and about to croak ^^

from my mind to yours, don’t let the good times past you by… soak your life with it.

sho nuff

sooooo this is the life of hav­ing work that your real­ly don’t think of that much about. i mean, i am get­ting paid for shit i do at home—digital arts. weird, i nev­er real­ly thought of get­ting employed as a graph­ic artist but here i am, with a com­pa­ny that i am hav­ing fun with—tiiiiight. even though i am a com­put­er engi­neer, i still do some cod­ing in this line of work—i guess its what every­one refers to as “a foot in the door.” C.R.E.A.M. yo!

in this job­by-job, i learn new shit every­day. for instance, i got pres­sured by one of my homie locs (who i knew by play­ing counter strike 2–3 years ago) to make some­thing in flash; side-note: it is the same guy who referred me for the job haha—i guess it pays to play games =p. back to the top­ic… so i just sat down, and browsed web­sites (as well as bugged james ^^), and picked it up quick. its just about damn “log­ic.” i guess every­thing in life is some­what like this; just like lego blocks—to get the best out of any­thing, you just have to find the part that fits. that is, you just got­ta find what you like, and when you find it, hang on to it as it was made for you ever since the begin­ning.

woah, that sounds like deep shit for them shal­low minds eh?! any­ways, i heard that most of my homies and home­girls have a job now—so thats cool ish. we can all hang out now and not wor­ry about not mak­ing it cause we ain’t got the cash to do so. well at least, me, i have been mia from the homies cause i was “poh.” well, i just hope to get finan­cial­ly sta­ble and pay all the bills final­ly; and get my mom and my aunt the relax­ation they need for so long ever since grad­u­at­ing this past fall.

so here i am, hope­ful­ly on the right path. after many tri­als and tribu­la­tions that i was put through—i just hope i can take that expe­ri­ence and use it well in the future; and to help oth­er peo­ple out in what­ev­er way i can.

so the first thing on my list is this 3‑Day Breast Can­cer Research Fundrais­er. it is a three day walk from san­ta mon­i­ca to mal­ibu; a six­ty mile walk/hike to raise mon­ey to fight breast can­cer. the only thing i see that might be an obsta­cle is the $85 reg­is­tra­tion fee plus the $2000 fund you have to raise to par­tic­i­pate. i know, that being a col­lege stu­dent, ends are hard to come by this days. i just hope that some of my sigep bros can com­mit to it, and par­tic­i­pate in any way they can. so i pro­l­ly have to get a meet­ing start­ed some­time soon and see how are we going to help out in this thing if we don’t have the ends to do the walk itself; maybe just be a vol­un­teer and be part of the crew teams who moti­vate the walkers—we’ll see how that goes.

any­ways, what else is up with me? well, i’m the same o’ dude that just under­stands more about the world as a new day aris­es. still smillin’, still shinin’ wooooooo­ord up! is any­one even read­ing this? or am i just enter­tain­ing my damn self again, as always haha—shiiiiiiiiiiieeeeeet i’m such a “nuhd” (inside joke w/ dean).

mean­while, i just paid for a lot of crap late­ly, before my first pay­check. WTF, i need to han­dle my ish or i won’t be able to buy my cas­tle in the sky. HA! any­ways, it’s time to get my day jump start­ed and meet up with the fam bam for the fourth, and get some grub in this mofo. again, hap­py bday to gwe­nie! and con­grats to ai for get­ting her job with the boys in blue, LAPD.

from my mind to yours, “wear a hel­met.”
