old friends.

I was catching up with an old friend of mine the other day through Facebook Chat. He was my best friend and neighbor until I was 10 and my family moved to a different town. In the first year since I moved we had visited each other two or three times but I could tell we were losing interest and had nothing in common. After that we hadn't spoken for 7+ years, until Facebook hit its peak of popularity and he added me as a friend.

We got talking and I searched through his pictures and wall posts and realized he and I were completely different people. He exclusively wore Abercrombie and Fitch and other brand clothing like American Eagle. He practically lived on his iPhone. He was into drugs like cocaine, ecstasy, binge drinking, pot, etc. He listens to popular mainstream rap music like Eminem, Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, and whatever else teens currently listen to, and expected me to keep up with popular trends.

I couldn't give a shit about popular rap music. I listen to the Beatles. I don't give a fuck what people think if I'm not wearing Abercrombie or if I don't drink. I'm 6'4", white, I wear glasses, and I play guitar. How did we become completely different people within a few years? It's certainly strange how far apart people grow. All I know is I'm happy with who I am and who I have become and wouldn't change a thing. Probably more to come later when I collect my thoughts together....

Do you ever wish you could have a "redo" moment in life? Sometimes I reflect on my life and realize there were some situations where I really would like to change my reaction. There were lots of moments in my first two years of high school. Seriously... Too many.  And quite a few in my last two years of high school. And even some in my first year of college. Maybe I should just think more thoroughly before committing to an action or a statement. I suppose I can prevent more of these moments by being more self-conscious (not in a bad way) and more aware of my surroundings.

But then I wonder if my current situation would be different if my past was affected in a redo? If I were unhappy then I'd have to redo the redo. Shit.

I'm watching Resident Evil on HBO right now. I love zombie movies. I've always been fascinated by the idea of the dead attacking the living and causing the apocalypse. The sheer thought of having hundreds- even THOUSANDS of the blood-thirsty undead surrounding your area, attacking you, and ripping you to pieces is enough to keep me entertained for hours. Or similarly, what if an illness caused a worldwide pandemic (like 28 Days Later)? Who would become infected? How many would there be? Would there be any survivors? What about a cure? What would I do in the event that the end of the world arrives at my doorstep TONIGHT? What would you do?


I'm going to school for a marketing degree. My classes this semester include principles of accounting, macroeconomics, business writing/communication, music appreciation, and public relations. I'm usually an A or B student, and I just got a C on my Accounting test. Feels bad, man.

I play trombone in the jazz band at my school. I also play guitar. I just bought a new Gibson SG on a whim, so now I don't have a lot of money in my savings account. I need a job but I can't find anything around here...I don't have any prior job experience so it's even more difficult for me to find a job. Any advice?

First Post

I've decided to start blogging lately. I'll probably update with thoughts I can't seem to get out of my head.

I'm a musician and lately I've been starting to write songs. I might post some stuff up after I finish it and am not embarrassed by any of my material.

Thanks for reading! See you around.
