Frustration Concentration

I haven't posted in over a month. I feel uninspired. That word alone can make someone put a noose around their neck.

I've been trying so hard to make things work. I feel focused and energetic. Somehow though, the energy I feel I'm putting out, isn't coming back to me in the way I expected it.

My life now is mundane. It's filled with wonderful people. I can look forward to my day and know where it will take me, but where are the ends?

I'm not unhappy by any means, I'm just antsy. Frustrated.

I keep thinking maybe I need to move on. Either physically or emotionally.

Why can't I find my footing? Where is my place?

Holy Shit!

Is this happening? Justin, I think it's happening.

Mine for the Taking

This world is mine for the taking,
Whether I'm out late or waking up and baking;
I haven't sold albums that went gold,
Or have 20 plus cars that I roll,
But damn it feels like I'm making

Progress, that I stress is several years coming,
Don't stop running when the sun comes up;
Can't be late for my morning cup,
Chasing paper, best believe I deliver,
On what's mine

So, I'm gonna take this world,
Ride her steady, won't fall short because I'll pick myself up

This world is mine for the taking,
So when I rise up with fists,
Like Jenny Lewis,
I'm gonna make mountains explode,
Waves will roll,
And I'm gonna make mine the only path to behold

Holy Crap!

Collision Course

I want to express how much I love every person in my life.

It's terrible that I can't express that to anyone who is important to me.

Yoga Hotness


So, obviously I learned least in html code. I was just able to put a "trademark" under my blog title. Fuck yeah!

Goddamn Community Center Courses

So my experience tonight at my career center course was not very positive.

I came in with a really positive attitude. Ready to learn. Ready to kick Adobe Dreamweaver's ass. I however, was disappointed with the lack of structure, I guess.

I guess my frustrations come down to others that were distracted by, what I consider, mundane things. Or things I wouldn't be stuck on. (I hate the fact that I ended that sentence in a preposition). The other people totally threw my concentration off.

Also, our instructor totally did not follow a steady structure. He even apologized for "jumping around" on the course outline.

We'll see on Monday how much I absorbed when I play with Dreamweaver at my internship.

25 and Still Alive!

It's surreal, and yet, mundane to get older. I've reached my "quarter life" whatever the hell that means and I couldn't have spent it with any other people in the world.

To the four greatest people I've ever met, I thank you for taking the time out to let me know what I mean to you. I can't repay that. I love you all.

To the fifth person that just gets me totally and loves me period; I love you, and we'll be together soon. I can't live without you.

And to my Mom. You've given me life, and I can't imagine how you feel knowing that your creations are people with lives separate from your own. That's a freeing and heartbreaking realization in and of itself.

It's great to be here.

Slumdog Millionaire

What does it take to change your destiny? When you're born a poor child, your family is killed, making you an orphan, and as a result you spend your childhood and adolescence scamming and scavenging to get by, what possible hope is there for you to win a millions of dollars on a popular game show?

Director Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, 28 Days Later, Sunshine)answers that question in Slumdog Millionaire which is a heartfelt tale of Jamal, an orphan that takes up a life of innocent crime with his brother Salim after his mother is killed.

The movie focuses on three periods in the boys' lives. Jamal, the innocent doe-eyed boy who fawns after a young girl who also lost her family, struggles to find his footing eventually growing up and working for a call center. Salim, the tough-as-nails older brother turns to a life of crime, killing fellow con-men, serving his own interests, and even using the object of his brothers affections, Latika, to his advantage.

Latika, as Jamal finds out, is a fan of the Hindi version of "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" after a failed attempt to take her from her current life where she lives with a wealthy criminal. Jamal then decides to take a chance with his fate and becomes a contestant on the game show with the simple hope of having Latika see him again.

The movie is told through three vignettes. The first where Jamal, played by doe-eyed Dev Patel, is being interrogated by police after the first night on the game show where he successfully answers questions that doctors and lawyers can't even answer. They suspect him of cheating. The second where Jamal is on the game show answering question after question with much trepidation and lack of expression. The third and final is the narrative which explains how this boy, this kid from the slums, who wasn't meant for greater things, knows the answers to the questions he's being asked.

What transpires in the following two hours is a tale of hope and tragedy, love and loss. And what occurs emotionally is more important and fulfilling than the desire for Jamal to win, both the money and the girl, but the realization that sometimes when you don't know the questions, the answers are already written out for you. ***A***
