day 1534 – gstrings girls

appointed photographer and driven to dickens as photoweek for thursday continues. it forced me to see people and be sociable. it’s the only time i left the house cause i didn’t go into work yet again and it’s driving me up the wall. the swelling makes it uncomfortable to sleep at night, and can’t predict how the swelling will fluctuate throughout the day either. i feel useless that i can’t even take care of myself and don’t want to get out of bed to face the day

day 1061 – beach wedding

image

at jericho beach attending a wedding ceremony on a hot and sunny day. the casual and free setting of the beach wedding was nice, but it needed a little more structure for the schedule. it was quite nerve wrecking meeting many of mo’s extended family, but i still had fun being mo’s plus one. i am exhausted from being in a formal social environment for much of the day. this is one of the rare times i will be so decked out

day 843 – formal outfit

image

my outfit of the day going to the all important vdl 10 years celebration. this is a night i will remember because i am sober for the duration of the social. getting to see all the old faces who came before my time and helped guide this league into what it is ten years later. the growth of this league is amazing and it was only made possible because this committed group of people came together to build a community. i am truly happy to be a part of the building team because vdl has given me so much in return

day 837 – over the top

image

round two of pubnight was suppose to be a tamed one, but that never happened. had a tremendous night with little recollection of what happened. i do recall being at the photobooth and pouring beer up someone’s nose but anything beyond that was a little blurry. i was over the top so it wasn’t a night i could get home. crashed at a friend’s place for the night and had good company in a friend’s living room. it’s going to be interesting to see how functional i will be next day, keeping in mind i have a full lineup ahead of me

resolution series: [eighteen] connections

i have said it again and again, and i will say it again. first decade of your life everyone you meet is either your friend or your enemy. second decade is when you learned a little better, have a large group of friends even though you learned not to hastily call everyone friends. beyond the first two decades is when you have to figure out who your friends really are as you will no longer have a ginormous list of friends. because you will soon realize that people will start disappearing and there isn’t enough time to go around for everyone. don’t get me wrong i am not an introvert; i do believe in networking and i find ways to develop my network whenever i can. with that said, i value all the different social groups and population i meet through an assortment that stretches across many breadths and fields. i am completely aware that my list of friends are shrinking but i have now realized that i only need a handful of close buddies that i can turn to in any situation at any point in time and they will be there for me no matter what happens. working hard to surround myself with the right people that will be a positive impact to my life and stay true to my real friends because they are the ones i want to grow old with. i am working hard to becoming a greater influence whenever my friends are in need of a pick me up moment. true friends don’t let you fall alone, i would know because they picked me back up countless times

day 299 – social bug

sky rocketing numbers for phone usage this time around. maybe that’s why i consistently can’t lay off my phone and definitely cannot live without it. that’s the most text messages i have ever sent and received in one billing cycle and even then it only uses fifty percentage of my allowance.
