Boy Toy of Summer

My brother and I are being used for our bodies; but, we did sign up for it… 18-34 year old females: …that’s Clear Channel Communication’s radio station 93.3’s target demographic, and the reason I say we’re really being used. Our titles should be “Promotions Assistant,” and I’ll be putting that on future resumes; but, realistically,…

365 Days

A year ago today I graduated from high school and moved to San Diego. Keeping in contact with people from Boys Ranch has been difficult, but not entirely impossible. Myspace is apparently a thing… And unless I have a way to produce my music I see no point in getting one. However, I have had…

April Fools

I was never the “class clown.” I kept my head down in high school, did my homework, kept busy with Cross Country, Track & Field, Wrestling, Speech & Debate, Fall Production, One Act Play, and well… a lot of other activities. I even tried Cheer Leading. So, for not being the “funny guy,” I’m not…

Minimum Wage

My brother is working at the South Bay Family YMCA as a lifeguard. He worked as a lifeguard in Texas at the Maverick Boys & Girls Club in Amarillo, too. It seems he has a knack for that kind of thing, but as for me I’ve never been able to execute the “egg beater” very…

Birthday, Christmas, New Years Eve

It turns out that with the lottery ticket I purchased on my birthday – I didn’t win the lottery, which is fine because I’d rather earn something then get it for free. On the other hand, in fact, I suppose someone could argue that winning the lottery isn’t getting money for free because a ticket…

“Adulthood” on Approach

My brother and I joined our father in celebrating my mom’s XX Birthday (Likely her 21st, but the age has been redacted to protect… well… me). The usual birthday song was sung, and the usual birthday habits ensued as the four of us sat around a half-wet table at Chili’s. And by half-wet, I mean…

After Halloween

How could I not have heard of Santa Barbara’s Halloween parties. Also, I think Freebird’s is my new favorite Mexican food restaurant… And although I had a great time, the entire night was like one gigantic mile long mosh pit of barley legal super heroes illegally drinking and “engaging in gross and lascivious behavior.” Still,…

Half Way

Today, I have found myself about half way through my first official semester in college. And while I didn’t attend one of the major universities that had accepted my application, or those universities that would offer scholarships for Track & Field, Theater, or just because I’m a smart cookie, I’m in college just the same,…

Coffee & Mud

When I was living in Texas attending Boys Ranch I used to wish I was somewhere else. I used to wish I was here in San Diego. It wasn’t until now, until I actually arrived and started a life here, that I realized that being happy with where you are is a big part of…

From the River to the Bay

If there’s anything worth renting, I’ve found it. Not a sailboat… Not quite… But that’s the next step. A paddle board is like a mini sailboat with no sail… And last week I took my first dive. …Okay so there’s a huge distinction between a sail boat and a paddle board, but my experience thus…
