A New Chapter

So a new chapter of my life begins and I am not ready to turn the pages.
To see old pages of my life please visit

My friends in my clique, Alysia and Smyr, have both discovered what they want to do next: research and education. I have an education minor and my major implies that I do extensive research, but somehow none of that appeals to me. As of now, I have made a comfortable living back at home with mom, dad, and little brother. It's not too bad, I have my own room downstairs and everything is taken care of for me... but where's my independence? I guess I left it back in Berkeley at my beautiful apartment. I liked paying bills and having friends over and doing whatever the hell I wanted with the space given to me. But I lost it all when I didn't find a job.

While everyone was looking, I was focusing on a passion: acting and dancing a cultural production. Maybe not a passion, but rather a hobby to distract me from real life for a short while. I sort of wish that I didn't go to Berkeley because now the bar is raised. I am expected from others and myself (especially) to get a decent job with this decent Bachelor's in Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies. Woo Hoo, so amazing. Whatever.

I figure, I have my youth to live and work can wait. But it's been a month and I'm done with this vacation. I had one interview and the Vice President could SMELL that I was the wrong fit. Well, to hell with you because you're right, I would have hated my job. But you know what? Who doesn't hate their first job?

Summer has been exciting as a 22 year-old in San Jose. The night life is pretty impressive if you got a 10 in your pocket, gas to spare, and some friends that are really light-weight. And I guess I AM looking forward to a couple of things: The Bar in SF 80 Cent Drinks to 80's music! on Mondays! Of Course I am there. But during the day, I have been procrastinating on Thank You letters and washing my truck.
