Gracias a la vida

Life is good.

I love the people in my life. I love this moment. I love this city.

I feel overwhelmingly grateful and humble

I want everyone to know that I dont take anything [or any of you guys] for granted.

I could not [and would not] ask for another life.

Peace and love yall

To think = Pensar

A lot of stuff is floating around my head. Nothing bad or negative, just a lot of kinda heavy stuff.

I finalized my rank order list and I dont plan on making any changes before the deadline. I tried to rank with my heart and my head, which is difficult for me. I know it’ll all turn out right…. in the end.

Im kinda disappointed that this long weekend is over. It was a good one. Very chill, I just got Netflix [which could potentially be very dangerous lol]. I watched one of my all time favorite movies again, Raising Victor Vargas. [That movie will be the litmus test for the woman I marry, she HAS to love that movie]. I also saw two classic Woody Allen films, Annie Hall (again, the first time I saw it I barely paid attention) and Manhattan (for the first time).. I’m not too sure why I decided to watch those Woody Allen movies, I wasn’t looking to gain anything from them. But in the end I saw a lot of myself in those movies in some weird way; the time, and place and feel of those films seemed very “of the moment” in my life right now. Its hard to to put into words. I just watched them and I felt at ease, almost like reading a Junot Diaz book or listening to an Ella Fitzgerald song. I just get it. Get it?

Well, that was basically my weekend. I got the new Radiohead album, King of Limbs, which is pretty solid, but too short.

I also made a couple other big decisions about some up coming trips and I found a Philosopher who’s work I’d like to study for a while, Albert Camus.

enjoy some Rhapsody in Blue

good nite

Old Times

One of the best parts of Annie Hall.

No better time than a long weekend to have a mini Woody Allen film fest

 

-Weekend Warrior –

I’ve been having some great weekends. Last week was my birthday and a pretty epic weekend in LA and this weekend, which was much more low key but also fun. I got to catch up with some folk, made some great purchases and got it cracking in the  Karaoke  bar. So here is my 5 hot things and weekend round up all in one.

-Shoes-

Got some Doc Martens today. I forgot how much I liked them till i saw them. They are super comfortable and pretty sick

-Music-

Childish Gambino a.k.a. Donald Glover is dope

Its also pretty awesome that Arcade Fire actually won album of the year. This is kind of a big deal

– TV-

Watched some Community and Parks and Rec this weekend. I’m not all caught up on the new seasons, but it felt good to catch up on some of the best stuff on TV.

-Hobby-

This was my first week back at running full time, and it was a success. I want to work my way up to 13 mile runs within the next 10 weeks. I’ll keep yall updated on my progress.

-Life-

Caught up with one of the homies this weekend. We didn’t talk long but it felt good to find out I’m not the only one thinking this way lol. Getting older makes you think about life and all that grown folks stuff a lot. Things like marriage and career come up a lot [it feels surreal to be thinking about stuff like this]. I  always like to get other folks opinions and perspectives on things. I realize that its a good thing to have an idea of where Im headed and the things I want, the hard part for me is being open to the things I havent thought about, to experience the things meant for me that are unforeseen. I have this weird need for control in certain aspects of life and yet i have this spontaneous streak that is limited to other, seemingly less important, aspects of my life. The worst part is that nowadays they tend to overlap and I can’t turn it off.  Its tough, but I’m  really working on finding my middle ground. Im grateful that life is great for me now, im in a good place career wise and basically in a good place in general. Im just gonna be more open and follow my heart a little more. I mean i guess it cant hurt that much to see where it leads me.

well its late, so I gotta get read for bed.

PEACE, keep ya head up
