Sometimes.

Sometimes life throws curves at us. Actually, it likes to do that on a daily basis. Perhaps out of enjoyment to see how we handle things, or perhaps as tests to verify how we can take care of our persons; but regardless, this does happen. Today I stand humbled by my own misdoings in life, and my own failures at becoming what I want to become in a timely manner; and I see that I have but a small fork in the road to make a choice. This time I know what to choose. It’s time to stand alone… to stand up… to stand out. I haven’t exactly understood what implications this will have; solely that it is the correct route to take.

End of the Semester.

Well, this is it for school in 2011. I mean, sure, there’re finals next week, but that’s ok. That’s not the same. It’s kinda interesting to think I’ve actually managed to survive this long in a typical college environment; a place I didn’t see myself ever getting along with. Maybe it’s because it’s not the same setup I pictured or despised… or maybe feared is a better term.

It’s come to my attention.

I don’t often write on my blog, no. I understand that a social ‘norm’ these days would be to post each and every random thing that either crosses my mind when I’m bored or to post my own little blurbs over and over (365 project that never happened aside). I can’t do that.

Wordbook? Let’s find out.

Here’s a test post. Why? Becuase I’ve finally installed wordbook, a plugin that lets my blog post from wordpress to facebook automatically. If it actually works, this might just be the best thing since sliced bread.

Oh my.

So, this summer seems to have started with a lot of busyness that doesn’t seem like it will ever end o___o. I’ve gotten into a project I can’t talk too much about, and I’d just like to put it out there that if all goes as planned, it should be a pretty awesome experience for myself, david, and all others involved. I’m learning how to build a database, php, flash, more CSS, LOTS of Photoshop techniques, how to use Illustrator to make icons, the general cloud computing system which I barely use of my server and more. Goodness. And considering I’m on my own for the most part to learn this stuff, damn. I have some help with the code here thats great, but all the apps are me. Oh, and did I mention I’m supposed to come out with an iPhone app by September.. ? Yea. Lots.

Well, I’m out for now. I’ve got some new design ideas for my website that you might see in effect by February if I’m lucky.

See, it goes like this.

I don’t know why, but more and more I feel like I’m fed up with the same old stuff from school — kids that don’t get to their work, teachers assigning homework that, in all honesty, has no point except to just give something, the mis-weighting of grades. I don’t get it. Perhaps its because I’m of a select few that have already figured out other means of coping in the world, that have had a taste of success that is beyond the next McDonalds, but in any scenario, why must I go through the same motions as the kid who can’t get any kind of job? Isn’t there some way to get out of this? Read more

Design, School, More?

So now that school’s started for real, I thought I’d give a few updates on design and whats happening with school and a few of my friends.

First off, Lili [[ salonlili.com ]] and I are working on a sort of promo video, or introduction video to be used at a short event and perhaps many future things to come. After that, there is the new products page that was launched a couple weeks ago, and a few other minor tweaks here and there.
Now that brings me to my other projects. Read more

As the Summer Closes, Everything Else is Just Getting Going.

So I thought I should write a post sometime before the end of the summer .. and since to day is technically the last day of summer, it makes it very fitting to do a quick re-cap and wrap before school. In the beginning of the summer, I had [[NO]] idea what I had gotten myself into with Zephyrus, and then I continued with “Lili”, a new salon that I’ve written of multiple times ^^ [[salonlili.com]] and then Belle Reve Boutique, which is under construction and delayed due to school, and finally Midtex General. While Lili is at a stable place, Belle Reve and Midtex are just getting started.. so its time for me to stop writing and get back to work. Junior year, here I come!

A (100%) Un-Official Review of EHS’s Current Jam 2008

Before writing this review, I’d like to take a moment to give what my experience is and tell you that I AM IN NO WAY A CRITIC OR PROFESSIONAL REVIEWER. What I’m writing is just my opinion.

Ok. My “experience” isn’t much, but its enough for me to see differences in between different levels in the music groups. I’ve been to every single choir concert this year, minus the opening day and last day of Current Jam. I also went to the final orchestra concert, Pops twice, and the final Concert Band concert, all of the musicals except for Midsummer Night’s Dream, and I’ve stayed with the band for all of the jazz/varsity concerts (yeah, some people leave). My point is that I’ve been to a good number of musical events, and participated in many pep-band events beyond required, and of course, all of the band concerts for symphonic band. Basically, take this review how you want to, but don’t hold me accountable for anything. I’m just having some fun with what I see and don’t see. Summary and Review after the break.

FINALLY!!

For those of you who know, my macbook’s screen has been broken since .. well .. I think maybe December or November of ’07. Finally, as of last night, my screen is 100% fixed!!  Finally, I can get back to normal work speeds and begin using Ps again.
