1. Things in life are pretty good. Shila's parents are in Iran till mid April so we've been hanging at her house a lot, which is nice. She misses her parents dearly, but I think she's held up quite well without them around.
2. The job hunt: Well, it could be going better. I could have a job. But I interviewed at a place yesterday that was pretty much my ideal job. M-F, 9:30am - 6:30pm, in Beverly Hills. I would be a "music video coordinator"...really, just an assistant to the music video department of this company. But man, what an opportunity. I left that place excited to get this job. I think I interviewed well enough, and I think I have a good shot at it with my past experience and knoweldge of music/pop culture (they said that's a BIG plus with me). I've decided that music videos/commercials is where I want to be, so I'm going to be faxing resumes a lot this week. I'm happy about that.
3. Money's running low. As to be expected with my unemployment status for some time now. But the good news is, I have a $25 balance on my credit card (big whoop), no car payment, and basically just gas, Netflix, food, and insurance to pay for. I'll be able to last. Shila's helped a lot in that regard...she INSISTS on paying for food or drinks when we go out. It's kind of nice on one hand but I hate feeling like I can't afford basic things like that. It's not fun, but I'll live. Plus, I'll be employed very soon *crossing fingers*
4. Been doing a weekly @ the Harmony Sweet out here. It's been fun, but there's a real lack of support. Honestly, that's to be expected seeing as how we promote very little...but we always have a good time on Thursday nights there. We're thinking of chopping it down to a monthly cause aside from our friends, who the hell wants to see us spin EVERY week? The good news is the people who come that we don't know give us great responses and stay late...and that's a wonderful compliment. Really, I'm just happy to be playing regularly. It's a lot of fun, and I really enjoy doing it when I'm not stressed to the max over the whole thing (which, if you know me, is like...always). I think once it's a monthly or a semi-monthly, then it'll be better.
Enough with the numbers.
Today, I ran about 3.2 miles (according to Mapquest), and it felt great. I've been trying to be more active just on account of the fact it's easy to get lazy and lame when you have literally NOTHING to do. It also makes you feel better and have more energy. I've really slacked in the exercise/not eating terribly thing...been trying to get back into it to a degree. Preferably not as crazy as I once was, but just enough to get back into shape. Also, I want money so I can get a Disneyland Annual Pass (although clearly Shila and I won't be able to use it as much anymore :( ) and take a vacation. Vegas...sure. But I really would like to do a cruise with all the homies. I know a lot of people can't afford it but I think if we all saved, we could. And maaaaan would it be bananas (B-A-N-A-N-A-S). So much fun could be had. Might have to wait awhile on that one though.
Once in awhile, I worry about the people around me. Don't get me wrong, I love all my friends and family and I think all of them are amazing. Basically, if I consider you a friend, I think you're awesome. But (and I'm going to do this as inconspicuously and obnoxious as possible thankyouverymuch) I worry about a few people...people who I know are in bad situations, people who are smart but can't pull themselves out for whatever reason(s), and people who have ceased to be themselves for awhile. It's sad to see. I have faith in said people but I think they don't quite realize what other people (namely me) realize about them. If you're reading this, chances are you are not one of those people I'm talking about, but it pains me. I hate feeling powerless. I think everyone does. Well no, some people CRAVE it but big whoop.
Lunch today...I'm thinking Quiznos. I've exhausted the food in my house. I highly reccomend Simply Lemonade. You can buy it in the supermarket and it probably owns your favorite juice/lemonade/drink. That's all for now.
