Here's a quick update on my life:

I haven't been going to counseling or the LGBT group meetings. The group meetings were really not what I had expected. I found bits and pieces of the sessions useful, but not enough to go back. I did make a friend though and ran into her at a party, so that was fun! As far as the one-on-one counseling goes, I just wasn't growing from my new counselor. I think I outgrew it, which is a good thing! If I need to talk to her in the future about something, I'll make an appointment.

For the last two months, myself and 300 other students met every Thursday night on a parking garage rooftop. Why you ask? Because we did a FLASH MOB! It turned out to be such an amazing dance and I ended up being in the front row, what what! (white shirt with the black backpack) I met some cool peeps and laughed the entire time at my inability to dance. Dorie and I (my future roomie) are on the same level, so we were placed in the less talented group. Bahaha

We cry over our shitty dance moves by going bowling

Story: For the entire month of October, there was a 21st birthday party every weekend. On one of those weekends, Molly was throwing a rager at her apartment for her roommates 21st. I met Molly, who immediately became my best friend in Advanced Writing for the Media class. She and I just clicked within minutes after meeting on the first day of class. People were naturally gravitating towards us to be in our clique. Humble brag.

Well it just so happens that my girl Shelby was also coming into town with her bestie Nikki and their two guy friends. To read our first sloppy, drunk trio adventure, click right here. Shelby went to my school Freshman year and than left, but she comes back to visit me every six months or so! Once they arrived, she and my nigga Nikki start raving about this stuff called Cloud 9, that's basically legal pot. I had no idea what they were talking about, so we drove to the Muslim gas station and picked some up.

We still don't know what it is haha The package says herbal incense, but what does that mean? We got back to my apartment and pulled out my rolling papers that I've never used in my life and I attempted to roll three joints, one for the each of us. We went outside onto my balcony and smoked them. I definitely felt something, but it wasn't the same as being high. I felt buzzed. We went upstairs to my room and started playing with this giant bag of condoms that Shelby gave to me. There were like 100 condoms in there and when I asked her why she had so many, she looked over at Nikki and just smiled. So apparently Nikki went into the Health building, where they have bowls of free condoms and jacked ALL the condoms haha we started blowing them up like balloons and drawing faces on them with Sharpies, like we're ten years old.

After that, we all started feeling stoned so we went on a walk around the entire campus to check out some soccer game that was going on at the fields and catch up.

The following evening Shelby used her fake and we got Four Loko's from the Muslim gas station. It's THE gas station to go to if you're under aged, they seriously don't care. It's the same gas station that we got all of our alcohol from Freshman year. If you have the money, you're 21 haha Once we got back to my place, we got ready for the party and chugged our disgusting beverages.

As soon as we walked into Molly's apartment, she screamed, ran up and bear hugged me. She is seriously the bubbliest and most kindhearted human being. I just love her. We ran into her kitchen and started taking SHOTS! That was Shelby and I's theme song Freshman year! We all stood in a circle and started doing Yager bombs and vodka shots. About twenty minutes after arriving, I already had to puke, so I ran outside and upchucked on the side of the apartment building, in some bushes.

As I was walking back inside, I was told that I saw Shelby standing on the front lawn, answering a phone call and I pounced on her out of excitement. We went down. She landed on her bad leg. It popped. I don't remember any of it.

After that, the last thing I remember is lying down in the parking lot next to Shelby's car and than being in my apartment again. I got sloppy and had one of the worst hangovers of my life. I woke up and felt like I got hit by a truck. This is the last hangover I've ever had. I went down stairs and found the two guys sleeping on my kitchen floor. Nikki was sitting on the couch drinking water and Shelby was sitting on the floor, against the wall with ice on her leg. I asked her what happened and she goes '"ou attacked me!" I seriously lost it and busted out laughing. We all did. She was so cool about it and said she fractured it so many times playing softball in high school, that it's easily prone to injury now.

They went to Denny's and I stayed in bed, with a killer hangover, until they left at 4PM.

I'm going to stop start drinking. I hate feeling like shit and wasting my weekends away in bed, feeling nauseas. My goal is to cut all fast food and replace it with more fruits and vegetables. I started going to a two hour spin class every Wednesday night with Angela and yoga on Thursday and Friday's with Kaitlin. Friday yoga is my favorite! The teacher is excellent and there are some beautiful guys that attend that class. It's hard to stay in a meditative state of mind, when there's so many studs there.

Tonight I went to a concert to see Casting Crowns live for my first time. They were really good live and had the audience laughing in-between songs.

And finally, some art updates. My drawing II class has taught me so much and I don't want it to end! My teacher focused the semester on us drawing skeletons. At first, I wasn't feeling it but the more I put my heart into the class, I enjoyed it.

My teacher chose me, among 11 other students, to be in her Mural Project class, that takes place next semester! We get to paint a mural of my mascot on the side of Sbarros, in the middle of the food court. I feel so blessed to be apart of that. The class takes place at her house and we'll be painting on her driveway and using the kilns in her garage.

So without further adieu, here are a few of my skeleton drawings...

Have a great weekend! Peace


  1. AGD: Art really is your talent so you should really pursue that.

    On a personal note, you really need to get out there and start competing with Socrkid -- he's getting all the Ds! You need to catch up to him cause he's getting all this experience.

  2. Seems like you're doing alright (except for the girl's broken leg part, wasn't she pissed bout that? ). Drinking hard without a hangover and w doing too bad things needs some training, but it seems you're improving your skills ;)

    Yeah yoga and cute guys around doesn't seem like the most working combination haha.

    I like the colours and shades of the first drawing. It's the one with most depth in it, it pops almost out of the screen.

    I would say break a leg! (pun intended haha).

  3. You should post some of the pieces here and let people bid for them! I love supporting growing artists and I'm sure a bunch of your other readers would love that too :) Just not too still in college :P haha

  4. hey , nice job on the art, and good luck with the new major, you may still find yourself doing some advertising even with an art major. ha
    hope you enjoy the thngvng break. when I got a fast food habit in college I started never gettings fries and always getng the grilled chicken option where my friends went. it was a start, ha now I eat mainly subway sandwich for a healthy option. Sounds like you been having some fun, at least you're not drinking so much that you don't have the hangovers. later

  5. Hey, I've been reading for a while, but never had the nerve to comment. It's good to see you grow not only as a gay man, but as a person. I've been working on doing the same. Good luck with your journeys buddy.

    By the way, I'm a huge fan of your skeleton paintings. They're kind of surrealist. Were they inspired by Frida Kahlo?
