Mata leon

April 26, 2010

I support gender equity in almost all areas of life(not firefighters or sushi chefs). You can tell Michelle Waterson is going to be a beast. She’s got GSP’s legs on a tiny frame and Wanderlei’s muay thai strut. She’s also a D-sport model.

Not really a flying armbar, but still sick.


We Own the Sky

April 22, 2010

Bummed out because my brother didn’t get in to UCLA. He’s worked pretty hard the last few years, and I honestly thought he had a pretty good shot. Things have gotten even more competitive since I applied, and this is the 2nd year in a row a close friend of mine got rejected. I didn’t know what to tell him except that i’d call him when I got out of class and we’d work it out. We’ll work it out mugglicious.

No Fit State

April 20, 2010

I had a candy relapse. 4 bags of sweet/sour goodness over the last 2 days. I think i’m better now. 4 more weeks of school and then freedom…Working for a judge in the city. Commute is almost 2hrs each way, but with the right music and a lot of text messaging it should be bearable for 10 weeks. I’m not going to talk about the money because i’ll just get upset. Suffice to say 3 days of overtime with Chevron is more than i’ll make the entire summer, but I’m honestly happy that I was able to find something that didn’t involve criminal law and my new boss seems very sharp.

During class I see classmates looking at stuff they can’t afford to buy, or maybe stuff they can buy. Dresses, sneakers, lingerie, uptown apartments, cruises, etc etc. I’m no different. I use Zillow for houses, and craigslist for cars and bikes. A friend of mine just bought a red Kawasaki 636 to match his rsx. A white Ducati to match a s2000 or gs 300?

(sigh) so pricey

Alive on arrival

April 15, 2010

5 cashes in 10 tournaments. I’ve arrived. (‘m retiring to cash games. Carlos Mortensen is from the same city in Ecuador as our family.

Green Lantern and Immortal Technique should be required listening for everyone who’s ever downloaded a ringtone.

I cashed in 3 of my last 4 tourneys, and 4 of the last 7 overall. If I can keep cashing at least 30% of the time I think i’ll be ready to say that i’m a decent player at this level of play. I played 3 mini tournaments with my home game partners over break and didn’t win a single time in a game where everyone is younger than me and a couple times the youngest person(13yr old) beat all of us. Poker like golf is a fickle mistress. 🙂

New music from Faithless. Creeper Anthem for 2010…I’m not going home, till I can take you with me.

Karaoke Killah

Cover of a remix of a cover. I wonder if she does Barry Manilow…

I spent two weeks in Silverlake…

April 2, 2010

Some pan dulce with my dad, pho with friends, and then it’s time to start the trip back to New York. I didn’t think I was going to be very productive over the break, and I wasn’t, but it was great being in so-cal/Fresno and spending quality time with my friends and familia. I feel lively and ready to grind out the last few weeks of the semester.
