Writer's Block: One day

How do you feel when a favorite band breaks up? Do you still follow the original band members in their new projects?

Duh, I hate it, especially if it was a favorite band. This has happened to me so many times. When they break up, I attempt to find out where the lead singer went, and find out if I like their new band. I focus mainly on the singers, though. It doesn't matter much to me if the other members are in another band, because their guitar/drumming sound is never too unique to distinguish between people.

It makes me think of Flaw. I absolutely loved Flaw, but they broke up. I followed Chris, the lead singer, into his next project, Five.Bolt.Main, but didn't like it too much. One of the best examples would be Adema. I absolutely loved that band, and still do. When their lead singer left, I continued following the lead singer - he didn't join another band - as well as the new lead singers as they entered and left Adema.

There is always a strange feeling knowing that the band that helped you cope with so many personal problems will no longer be making any music.
In Creative Writing, we are discussing the Journal chapter this week. So, I figure I would post something here. Maybe it'll move my writer's block a little bit.

I'm supposed to write a short story, ideally before Thursday. I'm not sure if I will succeed, only because I'm so critical of myself. I'm not sure if I'd write someting that flows. I understand English, and know I can convey many different things, but that doesn't mean I can produce a story everyone will clap at or have positive feedback about. Plus, my thought pattern is stuck on this concept of the hero facing a challenge everyone thinks he can't overcome. It's amazing how the small facts can cause my writing skill to completely pause. Also, I have to write fifteen more poems for my portfolio, which I have not started yet. Busy busy! I've never had to truly write that much poetry in so long. Not since that one constitutional assignment in 12th grade. We'll see what happens.

Right now, I'm waiting to hear back from one person in regards to a letter of recommendation. I think it might fall through. I'm trying to get my ducks in a row for when I completely mail in my application. I'm hoping it happens very soon!

Lately, I have been thinking a lot about what I'm doing with my life. I understand that I am working a ton of jobs, and rarely have time for myself, but what is my underlying goal in all of this?

I am thinking about graduate school - finally, after 2 years. I am thinking about applying to Gallaudet and seeing what happens. I'm going to apply for either a BA in English or a MA in something... Whichever accepts me first.

As I am typing this, Mike and I are on our way to Fontana for the Nascar race. I downloaded the app for my iPhone. It's pretty cool!

I got the iPhone 4 on Friday. I actually downloaded a Livejournal App, and am posting on it now.

The phone is wicked cool. I love the accessibility on it as far as the music, chat, and e-mail. Plus, I am getting used to the keyboard pretty easily.

I'm hanging out with Mike right now. Volunteering at Deaf West Theatre tomorrow. I will be helping out at concessions before Terrylene's ASL Poetry Show. I hope I get a chance to see the show in its entirety.

Writer's Block: Vacation, All I Ever Wanted

Would you rather be pampered at a luxurious beachside resort or visit exotic cities and learn as much as possible about the local culture and people?

I think I would end up doing a mix of both. I would enjoy staying at a luxurious or fancier hotel, and being a little bit pampered. Because I grew up without much money, simply sleeping in their bed would be enough pampering for me. I don't need a spa or anything like that. I'm more simple.

Then again, I would like to go to exotic cities. Well, let me rephrase that. I'd like to go to cities I've never been to. That way, I can have an adventure traveling around and taking in the sights and sounds. I'm sure the money I would have spent on that beachside resort would be better spent wandering around. Not only would I have the experience to take home, but I could bring home a souvenir or something.

Man I need a vacation!

Writer's Block: So funny I forgot to laugh

If a friend cracks a corny joke, do you force yourself to laugh politely? What about if it's your boss or teacher? Do you get annoyed if someone else pretends to be amused?

Normally, I smiled, shake my head, and say, "OH ... My God." I do the same with a boss or teacher. The action is ambiguous enough. And no, I don't get annoyed.
I just finished reading the book "I'm Still Hungry" by Carnie Wilson. It's about how she mentally transitioned into her new body following weight loss surgery. She describes everything she went through, and really, I could relate to a lot of her stories. This was regardless of how she lost the weight. It's given me some inspiration to really continue and know I can become who I envision in my mind. I recommend it for anyone! I honestly didn't know how Carnie Wilson was before reading this book, but I like how personable she is.

16 days until I graduate from CSUN. =)

It's so difficult when you start out with your eyes wide open to anybody and everybody that has come in. Now, my eyes are starting to form this tunnel vision on one specific person. I can't do that! I'm trying to widen my vision now, trying to make sure the others that walk by are noticed and considered. But my mind still wants to go to this tunnel vision! I don't even know if anything is going to happen.

It's irritating.
