New Year, New Beginnings.

To be honest, I look at the tab on my browser for my blogspot and tell myself I should blog a bit or upload photos, but I'm too lazy usually since it's probably 2am in the morning by the time I do, or I'm just legitimately too tired to work or something. And now I find the time as I sit in a Starbucks stumped on my personal statement for my College apps to law school...

To recap on 2013: it was the craziest year for me. It went by so fast & everything was just the biggest blur, I felt like I was drunk for most of it(probably was lol) Half of it was full of college memories & the other half was the post grad aka REAL LIFE hitting me. My last blog entry was my graduation and looking back on it is so bittersweet. College is easy & hard, simple & difficult, a love & hate time of your life. There was so much stress in my life during those years, but I was the happiest I had ever been to be honest. I think back and life was so carefree. I see why people take that extra year after to just hang around and BS lol.

I went through my first real breakup(&heartbreak) last year as well. That was one hell of an experience I wish to never go through again. It was mutual, but to be honest I think, actually I know I fucked up. I was too selfish at the time, but it has made me grow, so I have little regrets. My only real regret is that our breakup ruined more than just our friendship but also of the others around us. Because we knew eachother for so long, we had a big web of friends and once our web was broken, it had a slight domino effect on the rest of the web. But I guess that how life works. I always thought I'd be the type to just brush off a heart break, but hell was I wrong. We knew eachother for almost 6 years I think. It's so hard to just get someone who you were close to out of your head like that, especially since there was no real hatred for the breakup, like cheating or something. To be honest she pops into my head fairly often now and then, just random thoughts. It sucks how you really cant be friends (atleast us) after dating for so long, I feel its just too awkward, I made one attempt, but that was way to awkward, so I gave up on that hope of bringing back a friend ship. Now were just basically strangers, I see her at the gym every now and then, but try my hardest to keep her outta my mind and any memories that may pop up, & we just walk by like we never knew eachother. I really don't know how she feels about me, but its probably along the lines of hating my guts lol. I don't really hate her, it just more of a I'm trying to forget her, I think its better to just be complete strangers. I haven't really talked to anyone about my break up, so this rant was much needed and bound to happen lol But life goes on....

After graduating I really decided that I wanted to go to law school, so I've been studying for my LSATs since August I believe, and holy shit its hard. It's actually been more demoralizing than uplifting. Ive been able to undertand and do the questions, but the time limit for the LSATs for these questions is rediculous. I have no clue how well I'm gonna do when I take it in February. But no matter what, Im motivated to go to law school. Also, I'm currently interning at a Law Firm in SJ, the drive sucks, but its fun being in the environment, I've been enjoying my time there alot and learning alot about the Lawyer life as well lol, being a lawyer is something I could definitely see myself doing in the future. I just wished I tried 200x harder in college, then maybe I coulda gotten into a top 5 law school...but who knows, I'm still hopeful lol

On to the fitness side of my life now, I'm kinda really into working out now, & I thank college for that. I dunno how but working out gets me through my weeks, even if I have to sacrifice sleep to get in a workout late after coming back from work lol. My progress hasnt been all that impressive though unfortunately, its actually been extremely slow, but thats cause I'm not putting everything I have into it. I honestly dont have enough time in the day or the patience to have a proper body building diet. I just eat what I want & workout basically. I feel healthy, and I'm happy with my body, so I'm in no rush to get a 6 pack...although I did have it at one point during the summer instagram sunfiltered one...but still a 6 pack is a 6 pack (pictured below) lol & then I began bulking & watched it slowly dwindle away lmao. I started at 180 and am working my way towards 200, I think I'm around 190 right now, a little over hopefully...progress has been extremely slow on gaining weight and I'm eating like mad too lol but I'll be cutting again soon, so I'm looking forward to having a more defined six pack this year =]

I'd go on some about my New Years Eve, but I have zero recollection of it..LMAO

I basically stopped shooting though, I really have no time, I shoot now and then randomly but the editing is too time consuming to even think about, so they all jst sit on my harddrive...I'll get back to it one day, but for now my life consists of Work, School (soon), studying, and the gym. I barely have enough time for my friends lol

YOLO: I may only live once, but I made friends for a lifetime.

This ones dedicated to the people I've met in Davis. I honestly don't know where to begin, I've met alot of people, but the ones below(and some missing) have changed my life in such a way, that words alone can't & won't fully describe what I feel for them. When I moved here I expected my housemates to be a skinny Mexican guy, and a nerdy Chinese kid who studied all the time. Low and behold, I ended up with Ivan & Jorge. Talk about Ivan was the reason for at least 50% of the stress I felt that first year here, but he was also responsible for bringing it all together. I thank you Ivan. And although these guys graduated last year, they're still some of the realest people I know, and I'm talking about Herman, Leslie, Darryl, & Ivan of course. Always a pleasure when they all come visit or we get together. Then, there's this years group...I never expected to get as close as I have to you guys, but for the better, I'm glad that I did. Lincy, Michelle, Wilson, Sophia, Kevin, Nicky...So glad to have met each and every one of you. You guys are so humble and selfless that I wish I could've done more for you guys while we're all still together. I have so much respect for you all as individuals..I've never EVER been the type to open up to anyone...but the little opening up that I did to you guys, it just shows me how much trust I've put into you all. I know with my heart that you guys are all really good people. I really would take a bullet for each and every one of you guys. That ride or die life style. It's insane that we've all graduated (except for Kevin & Nicky..etc) and are moving on to our future. Although there are some memory gaps lol, I'll never forget the feeling of everyone just getting together and just having a blast. I really just enjoyed the company of such positive people to be honest, I had fun each and every time I'm with any of you guys, there was never any drama or anything like that & I love and respect it! Not many group of friends can do that. All I can hope is that we stay in contact with each other in our futures. Cause may we all grow old healthy and become hopefully we can still do what we do best =] I've never met such a diverse group of personalities who get along so well...whatever managed to put us together out of the all the people on this planet, I thank you...At whatever point in my life, whether we go our separate ways and never talk to eachother again or if we're still  in contact, I'm happy that I can think back to these years and have you guys in my memories of it....They say you meet some pretty cool people in college...well...I couldn't be any happier with the ones I have, y'all some of my best friends =]
Yolo. And I didnt forget about this Lived with this guy for 2 years now, glad I did. Didn't think I could get to know someone this well, we've bonded alot over the past 2 years, so much stupid stuff has been said...and all of it hilarious. I've watched this guy snap his ankle, to getting wasted and just acting like a kid on 7 juice boxes. Honestly its always fun, just hanging out with eachother, every minute is a laugh fest...doesnt matter what it I feel like I have so much in common with this guy that everything is really just natural...swear If I was gay, this dude would be the homo It's hard to explain this words, but its the memories that'll stay with me. I'm not really one to talk about my feelings so I can't really describe what makes me consider someone my best just kinda happens. But at this point in my life, as I prepare to leave Davis, in my mind...Jorge is my best friend. I don't do sentimental stuff well, so if you read this Jorge and talk to me about it, I'mma slap you. lmao Jorge

Graduation: An ending to one story, a beginning to another.

The last 2 years of my life have been some of the most stressful times of my life. From just living on my own, worrying about myself, staying up for 36+ hours to study, to vomiting my soul out. There really have been times where I've wanted to give up. But even with those hard times, these last 2 years have been also amazingly great to me. Words cannot explain how much fun I've had and how I've never been happier in my life. I've changed so much as a person, inside & out, in the short amount of time from when I moved here. I can't seem to grasp how time as passed by so quickly, its such a bittersweet feeling. Davis, college, and all the wonderful people I've met have changed my life forever, and I will never forget my memories here. Its so surreal that I'm done here at Davis and that I move on to pursue my future. I'm still not 100% sure about it yet, but as I've always done, I shall live it just day to day. Everything always seems to fall in to place.

Late Night Shooting

Needed some time alone to clear my thoughts, so I went on campus and shot around for a bit. Didn't take too many shots, it was more of just walking around enjoying the night. Campus at night is so nice.
