I don't know what's more absurd; the fact that I logged into Livejournal today or the fact that my sister wrote in hers two days ago. That's eerie. My thoughts will forever be preserved on this website. Like canned pickles. No, like brains in a jar of formaldehyde on a dusty shelf.

The day arrived and passed, I am all done with college. All I can say is it went by fast, and now it is time to make my next move. With time, Goodbye Chicago and Hello California.
"An Ocean's gargled vomit on the shore, Los Angeles I'm yours."
I do believe this will be my last entry. The past four years of my life are summed up in this journal, and with this chapter of my life coming to an end, I will be closing the book on this journal as well.

I just had my first REAL JOB interview....You know the type of job you get after you graduate and enter the "real world." Apparently I've been living in a fake world for the past 21 years. It was for the New Media Assistant position at Universal Music out in California. But I do believe it went very well. I feel good about it, and now I have to send in samples of my work. So I suppose all I can do now is wait for another call in a couple of weeks.....I'm so glad that is out of the way, I was nervous as shit!
Wait, wait wait,
This is me waiting....
Time to bring on the apple martinis........yum.

I don't need make-up or these highlights in my hair. I don't need to go through a daily facial cleansing routine or even take as many showers as I do. I don't need the pointy toed boots or fitted blazers with broaches. I just do it, out of habit. I'm not high-maintenance, I actually would prefer to be simple. I was asked recently, over lunch, what my plan was (mind you this was asked by a person who knows, or pretends to know, exactly what he is going to do in life).... I gave the "I know what I want to be" answer, but I couldn't fill in exactly how I plan to get from point A to point B, C, and D. I don't think I need a plan. I think life is about opportunities, and from those opportunities life unfolds. There are a lot of things I want to try, and sometimes you don't need a plan to just do what your heart desires. It's okay to dream about waking up in your bathing suite and keeping your hair unkept. Waiting tables to make enough money for ends meet; where your job is left behind until you pick up the next shift. blue water, white sand, green sea grass. Maybe that is a part of my plan...to take a break before I start planning. I could give it a try.

I feel comfortable. I feel content. I love what I get to do everyday....Every single weekend consists of shows, music, and new people. New interaction. Perks. I always wanted to be the one who knew those people. I know them now. I'm not lucky, I just did something about it. I worked for it. Though I haven't gotten to do everything I've wanted to do yet, if I were to die tomorrow, I would die content. Moving to Chicago was the best decision I have ever made. Leaving Kalamazoo was the healthiest decision I ever made. This is my home. And now I'm playing a part in someone else's world.

Please warm up soon.
i've learned to crochet, how cliche. alright, that should be a song lyric. I'm so sad...while taking a break in a michigan, 50 Cent visited the office on Friday and I missed it. I really wanted to add a picture of him and I next to the one of me and Slim Thug. I look like such a joke standing next to big black rappers. I sent resumes out. That was productive. will anything come of that? who knows. I'm just waiting for my time and moment. I can't go see Keane tomorrow night. So I'm roadtripping with Marita to Milwaukee on Sunday to help her out at the Zutton/Redwall/Keane show. I've never been to Wisconsin, so this is pretty exciting to me. I hear they have really good cheese up there, and being the rat that I am, you know how much I love cheese. This journal once full of honest thoughts has become one full of aimless actions. sorry, this is the way it will stay, at least until my heart is broken.
p.s. mike, visit me always
