Figured now is a good a time as any. I'm doing some laundry so I can go to Vegas tomorrow :) I just got back from a trip with all the homies, and it was a good one as it was some much needed chillaxin' time and I won $500. Mostly from poker and video poker. When it comes to video poker, I seem to do really well...I know strategy to maximize my profit but you HAVE to get lucky to actually win money. That takes stuff like 4 of a kinds, straight flushes, or royal flushes. 9 times outta 10, a full house won't win you more than...$10 or so. Anyway, I've been playing a lot of poker recently (played a TON in Vegas and have been playing online too) and have been playing all around solid poker. I was telling Shila tonight that I have probably the best understanding of the game right now than I ever have before. It's cool.
The job situation: Well I DJ now for money through a company, but mostly work in the office for said company. While it pays well (and under the table), I can't say I enjoy it. I need to get out and be doing what I got my degree in. Speaking of which...
Yes. I graduated. Quite awesome it was. It was a great feeling to be done with college forever (until possibly grad school)...and to have accomplished it with honors. Really CSUN was cool and all, but man, I was ready to be DONE. My graduation/birthday gift from my parents was a brand new Palm Lifedrive...a PDA which is pretty much awesome. Between that, my iPod, and my Adelphia DVR, I've found that...well, technology rules. I use those 3 things now more than anything else I own probably. Including my car.
Things with Shila have been great actually (knocking wood...cause everytime I say that I do something stupid). We've both been busy, so time together is less than we're used to, but we seem to appreciate it more. I'm really, really happy. That really about sums it up.
UV gets married on Sunday. That is crazy.
Okay forget about catching up everything that's happened since my last entry. I'll just say I'm excited about Vegas, I'm doing well in pretty much every aspect of my life. Although I dislike my current job, I'm more than happy financially. I'm addicted to my iPod and my Adelphia DVR. I can't wait to go play poker tomorrow (and to go watch the WSOP which Shila, Dan, and I got to go check out and see damn near every pro you could imagine playing over at the Rio). I'm currently reading One of A Kind: The Stu Unger Story. I'm currently watching The Sopranos Season 5 Disc 3. And I'm currently listening to a whole buncha stuff...including, but not limited to, Talib Kweli - Quality, Red Hot & Riot - A Fela Kuti Tribute, Incubus - Make Yourself, and a bunch of other stuff.
Glad to be back around these parts. Myspace killed my desire to do any sort of updates, but I'll try harder I suppose.
