Archive Song List #21

Counting Crows
Round Here (piano)

Jimmy Eat World
For Me This is Heaven


I'm still mentally occupied, sadly... but hopefully there will be a celebratory post on here pretty soon.

I am allegedly close to closing on a home. I have a new found respect for all homeowners because the process is soul-crushing and mind-pillaging.

I can't really express how excited I am to have this chapter of my life closed. It's not with anger really, it's just that I'm ready for what's next.

A quote I heard recently that resonated with me:

Tough times don't last, tough people do.

Archive Song List #20

Phantom Planet


Sufjan Stevens
For the Widows in Paradise...

Skyline Drive

(San Pedro, CA -- Wanna go back with me??)

You know how in movies, like the Goonies, the kid or kids run away from home and when they return at the end of the movie the parents aren't mad? They are just happy to have their pride and joy back?


Try to channel some of that as I apologize for my hiatus... been gone too long!

So, the question is probably what happened...

In no particular order...
  • went to cali
  • interviewed for a job
  • offered a job
  • closing on a home
  • met a girl
  • saw the ocean
  • got really drunk

Right now I'm buried at my current job which will potentially become my former job. It's a weird feeling to leave a job in that it's so similar to a relationship. I feel bored. And uninspired. I enjoy aspects of it, but I'm not reaching my potential. It's comfortable, certainly easier than getting out there again, but I know what the right move is.

What's scarier is that I'd be leaving my profession and career for something almost entirely new. ... I guess that's like breaking up and deciding on playing for the other team??

Still, I haven't made a final decision. Life has been one dependency upon another recently... can't buy X until the home closes. Can't accept a new job before the home closes. (apparently, no, just the home is owning me)

The one thing that would help everything move along? Time.

And what's a great way to pass time? Drinking. Ha ha.

I'm going to have a beer and make some decisions. Here are some tunes that'll help usher me along...

Cali was awesome! Will need a few days to recover (amazingly did not get drunk) and blog about it.

Image of the day

Image is called:

"Do you think we can make it?"

In breaking news...

You are an uber tool, Mr./Mrs. I choose to smoke in my car, but apparently my ashtray can't be bothered with the task of properly disposing the remains.

And it's not like we're talking about you putting out your cigarette and then tossing it out the window.

'Cause I guess you could extinguish it in the ashtray and then throw it out? Or you could put it out on your forearm like a true stud.

Nope. Instead you'll sneak it out the top of your window and shove it into traffic behind you -- still lit. Like a beacon lit to let everyone know what a smoker-joker (sorry) you are. Do you realize that EVERYONE around you at that moment hates you?

What are you doing, leaving traps like that... ?

What do you think this is??

And a little something to tie it all together...
