My cat is flipping out,

She's meowing at my door, and throwing her paws underneath the crack in my door. She wants in. I'm not ready to let her in yet though.

I didn't think this would be this difficult, but this math class is burning me out. On top of that i'm still working out. I wasn't very keen on the idea of working out this morning, but I forced myself out of bed. I certainly felt better after that though, but i've been up for too late now. I need sleep. I can't keep playing Cortex Command with my bros.

Gotta go, shower, let the cat in, sleep, workout, math, repeat. Bigger post tomorrow.

6 weeks, and the general improvement of myself within that time.

 First off, lemme go ahead and apologize for not posting for the entire weekend. It was pretty busy, what with my brother coming back from San Diego to visit for the weekend, and the Superbowl going down. That being said i'm getting back into the groove again.

The next six weeks are going to be Hellish for me. Why you may ask? The biggest reason being that I've started my accelerated math course at college. Normally college courses go for 18 weeks. My math course is going for six weeks, five days a week, at 7:30 in the morning. That's just 30 days of straight up math going on. We're also learning everything we would normally learn within those 18 weeks in our six weeks. So i've got that going for me too. This means i've been getting up around 5 in the morning just to start working out. Oh by the way, I started working out too. Its nothing big right now, I'm following this regiment that involves three days of weights, and three days of cardio, alternating between each every day. The weights are probably going to be the hardest part cause its been a while since I've lifted. As far as cardio goes, i'm already dancing my butt off at work, so i've built up a tolerance towards jogging and that sort. The type of lifting i'm doing right now will tone up pretty much every muscle in my body right now, and I can vouch for that. I'm pretty damn sore all over my body, but its a good feeling.

Speaking of dancing, I'm also trying to get some sweet new dance moves, mainly for work, but also to impress the ladies. Cause everyone knows that the ladies like a guy who can move his feet. My dance routine at work has gotten a bit stale, same goes for my music, so i've been scouring the internet for some good music to dance to. I've found a pretty good amount and my library is slowly building.

Now that schools in full swing, i've found it difficult for me to find time to just laze around and play video games. (I still do though surprisingly.) I even went ahead and picked up the new map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops. I really wanted to play the new zombie map, but it's never that simple. Out of the 10 or so times I tried joining a game, I only ended up finding about 1 other person to play with. Sure there's like 16,000 other people playing the same map i'm playing, but they must all be playing together, therefore i'm the only one without a group to play with. The new map is still pretty fun, yet the developers still left a few things in the game that's infuriating, one being that if you get touched twice by the zombies, you're down unless you have juggernaut. That's  pretty stupid if you ask me. When I play these games, I feel like the developers take two steps forward and one step back. Maybe their intentions are pure, but its almost like they're holding out on us, and for $15 per dlc, that's just bs.

Luckily, the dreams i've been having are entertaining me for the time being. It's kinda weird, I may have already said this before but since I read the guide on lucid dreaming, I feel like i've become more aware of my dreams, even if they all aren't lucid. I had a dream a few days ago where I was almost convinced it was real life. I was being chased by the police for something I did, what that was I have no idea. I woke up all sweaty though, and I was pretty thankful I wasn't going to get arrested. Maybe it has to do with my subconscious.

Big wall of text this time, but i'm making up for about four or five days of not posting, so the next posts will be smaller for sure.

One of my biggest hobbies is film-making. I've been doing this since I was 11 or so. And to me there's nothing more fun than thinking up an idea with a friend or two, and being able to see an idea come to life visually through film. My friends and I come up with the ideas, we all act, and I edit (Sometimes my bud Tony will edit, cause I get too tired/busy to work on our films.)

Our next idea revolves around an old western theme, with showdowns and all the stuff you'd see in some old western film. Biggest problem is the budget... And lack of camera. We're currently in the process of finding props and a camera. A lot of my money (Which isn't much) is going into this film, so of course I want this thing to be as awesome as possible. But for now our film is on a brief hiatus. I really hope this break doesn't last long. Hell I wrote an 11 page script for this thing. And that's a big deal cause we never script our stuff. We usually just film on impulse.

I've been trying to become a Youtube partner. It's more difficult than I thought. I feel like a lot of people would enjoy my films, or at least a certain group of people, i'm not trying to become some internet sensation. I have a tendency to... dislike those who are famous on Youtube. If you're a close friend of mine you know what I mean. I could rage about that stupid Fred kid for eons.

I guess I get all pissy because I see people online who have great talent, but they're barely recognized. But I guess people don't go on Youtube to see talent. They want to see crackheads doing backflips off roofs and people getting kicked in the balls. Speaking of crackheads...

Crap. I guess I just contradicted myself. This is what I like watching online.

Late Night Post

Its nearly 12 and I haven't done my daily post yet. I'll go ahead and make this one quick.

Didn't sleep well last night. I was up into the wee hours of the morning playing Dead Space 2. It also didn't help that it was crazy windy last night. I forgot to bring up the trash and recycle bins to the side of the house so I had a little adventure running out in the wind trying desperately to bring the bins back in.

I'm actually starting to get assignments in my classes now. A few online quizzes here, and a writing assignment there. My sociology professor says that this writing assignment she gave us is probably going to be the most difficult assignment out of the entire semester. Its a 2 to 3 page writing assignment regarding a social conflict that we have to explain. We don't even have to cite anything! Its purely opinion based. Needless to say, this should be a cakewalk.

I'm not looking forward to next week though. Starting on Monday, i've got class 5 days a week, starting at 7:30 in the morning. I guess that means no more staying up all night playing games. Its probably a good thing for me anyways, I need to focus on more important things in life. Particularly this blog, seeing how more and more people keep following me.

Okay. My head hurts. I think I need to drink some water. And take a shower. With that being said I bid you all adieu until tomorrow. Also here's my friend playing Whack-a-Shark.

Textbooks & Space Monsters

I finally decided to order my textbooks today after lagging for a good two weeks or so. Its not too big of a deal, the first few weeks of any class are pretty introductory and don't rely on bookwork. I mean we're watching "The Joy Luck Club" in my Asian American history class. But i'm falling behind on my reading and I seriously need to make sure I stay on top of that.

With school out of the way, I'll go ahead and tell you right now that I slept for a good 15 hours last night/afternoon. Woke up just in time to get ready for school today. I don't know if my awareness of my lucid dreams made them more numerous. It sure feels like it did cause I must have had at least four or five dreams that I could remember. One being that my friends and I went to Mexico and we were recruited into a gang. Fun stuff.

So tonight I decided to scare myself a bit and play Dead Space 2. I was a bit surprised however, i've been playing for a few hours and i've only jumped a few times. Its usually when I back up into an enemy and I turn around to see this monster right behind me. For those who have played the game: the game get any creepier? I just got past the cultist church part, and the glass breaks from that gunship. I had to fight that huge monster in space and that was pretty cool. Its kinda like watching a movie during those parts, but if I don't react quickly enough i'll die.

60+ Followers & Mondays (and video games).

Last night I was pleasantly surprised to see that about 30 people had followed me making the grand total around 60. Just wanted to thank all of you for making that happen. With that being said lets get into the nitty gritty of my Monday so far.

Woke up around 10 today. I didn't get much sleep last night. I must have been overexcited about the massive amount of people that joined my blog or something but I was literally in bed staring at my wall for a good hour. It was around 5 in the morning that I decided to do something. I ended up watching King of the Hill on Netflix while eating Fruity Pebbles. For some reason that did the trick, I passed out after 4 episodes and 3 bowls or cereal.

That gave me an hour's worth of time to get ready for school. Got through that with minimal resistance. I made myself a sandwich (A tuna melt with a fried egg. Try it, it's amazing.) when I got back home.

Well after I work out tonight I figure I could relax with a good computer game. I've been thinking about playing something nostalgic. I really liked the Jedi Outcast series. Anyone have any old games I could take a look at tonight? On the same vein of videogames, i've been looking at that first person shooter Brink. I might get it when it comes out. It really reminds me of the Timesplitters series, only a bit more dark. And seeing how the 4th one might not come into fruition, it'll definitely hold me over in terms of fps'es. The Call of Duty series has devolved into a "love/hate" thing for me. And right now we're in a bit of a rut.

Rain? In my Southern California?

Yeah, I woke up to a strange sight. It was raining. It usually doesn't rain in Southern California. I mean it does, but the past few weeks its been pretty dry. I like the rain, don't get me wrong. I just hope it doesn't rain when I commute to my school. Sure its only like a 10 minute walk away but i'm taking shortcuts, which could be difficult if it's raining. Anyways its Sunday, and I don't want to clog up everyone's schedules with a huge post, so here's that snowboarding video I made for my friends. I'm seriously contemplating getting into snowboarding. I've only gone once and I loved it. Any like-minded testimonials to that?

I forgot my gloves.

I had work earlier today. If you didn't know already i'm a sign waver at my local mall. Basically for three hours I stand on a street corner holding an advertisement. Well I don't stand. I get down. Waaaaay down. Its funny how some people react to my dancing. I get a lot of smiles, fist-pumps, people taking pictures of me, even the occasional middle finger. But for the most part I get a positive response. Thing is, my hands get chafed from the metal handles so I would normally wear gloves to prevent that. I knew I was forgetting something today when I left for work but its not that big of a deal, my hands will be back to normal in a day or two.

So i'm back home. I don't want to go out tonight. I just want to relax and work on my friends snowboarding video. I'll probably upload it on here when I finish it.

Before I finish. I want to let you guys know that i'm really appreciative of all the attention i've been getting on here so far. Its almost overwhelming, to the point where I might end up overlooking a blog or two. I won't let this happen though, i'll make sure I visit all of you daily.

That being said, enjoy this video. I went bowling with some friends a few days ago and this was the end result:

Friday, January 28, 2011


I love Fridays. It's pretty much my Saturday now. This is the only day (besides Sunday) where I don't have to do anything. I don't have class, I don't have work, I can just sit around and do whatever I want.

That being said, I figure i'd post a little something before I got ready for whatever might come my way tonight.

So for the past few weeks i've been contemplating on ways to improve my life in general. I figured my best bet was to start working out again. Sure I may look fit right now, but that won't be the case in a few years. I'm relying too heavily on my metabolism which is going to slow down eventually. I've already done that p90x workout regiment. Well, half of it to be honest, but I couldn't keep watching videos of Tony Horton telling me what to do. I figure sometime this weekend i'll go ahead and write down my own workout regiment and stick with that for now. Sources online tell me that you should probably do 2 days of cardio, and 3 days of weights every week. I figure since i'm already dancing on a street corner with a sign for 3 hours straight i'm doing half of my cardio. I just need to build my workout regiment around my job, and school, and this blog. So i'll let all you guys know how that ends up.

With all these things going on right now, i've barely had time to play on my 360 with the guys. I guess that's a good thing cause i've been spending too much time on that thing anyways. I did play for a few hours a couple nights ago with like, 4 of my friends. I forgot how fun riot shields were in mw2. Even more so when you've got your entire team sticking together in a huge group with riot shields. We lost more than we won but good times were had by all.

Lucid Dreaming

So I was reading online the other night about lucid dreaming. I've already had plenty of dreams like these, but everyone online is always like, "Oh hey! I'm able to control what I do in my dreams! Isn't that amazing?". Rarely does this happen to me. For the most part when I have those really vivid dreams, its like i'm on a track, so to speak. Unable to move through my dream, as if though everything had been planned out before i'm in it. So I try this method that would supposedly let you take control of your dreams as if they were real life. It kinda worked, although I wish the setting would have been a bit more enjoyable. Ever play the zombie minigame that was included with Call of Duty: World at War? It was like that. Mixed with Left 4 Dead. It was pretty fun at first, but things started getting hectic when I had to save my friends from getting their brains eaten. It wasn't fun when we all ran out of ammo and we ran through the giant mansion looking for weapons. I ended up getting nibbled on by a dog and I told myself, "Wake up!" before I got bludgeoned in the head by an axe. That whole lucid dream stuff is cool when you can fly around and make out with hot chicks. Not so much when its zombies. Kinda reminded me of this PSA I did for my high school about swine flu, back when it was a big deal. Not that anyone got sick anyways.

Well lets see how this turns out.

This would be my first time posting on a blog site. I'm a bit new to the whole concept although blogging has existed for quite some time now. I feel like this would be a good way for me to talk about my interests and what i'm currently doing with my life. Plus if this whole blog thing of mine becomes more stable, it would definitely be pretty cool to look back at what I was talking about before and saying to myself, "Wow, I was a total idiot back then." Hopefully that's not the case but I digress. I'm currently taking college classes trying to get my general education out of the way so I can move onto bigger things. I'm also a kick-ass sign waver at the local mall. That's pretty much it for now. Bigger things to come for sure though.
