Vai Cavalo

June 29, 2010

Excited about the job interview on Thursday. Mixed reviews about the company online from past and current employees, but people who feel compelled to rate their job satisfaction online probably tend towards a general dissatisfaction with their lives. It’s been a couple years since i’ve had an interview I really cared about…

The last emperor has been usurped.

Almost back to socal. Some random stuff i’ve learned.

Nashville is the home of country music, but it doesn’t look anything like our idea of country on the west coast. Tennessee, Virginia, and a lot of Oklahoma are heavily wooded. Some small farms, but mostly just lots of tall trees and Cracker Barrel. Cracker Barrel is a movement onto itself.

Speed limit is 75mph in New Mexico and Arizona and virtually no cops or CHP patrol I-40. Drove 6hrs and saw 1 cop. Nobody and nothing happening for miles at a time so don’t even think about breaking down.

Pinball Hall of Fame looks janky from the outside, but has a ton of pinball and old arcade cabinets.

Frank Caliendo is worth the money. It’s an expensive hour, but his Charles Barkeley and Bill Clinton impersonations are crispy.

The only thing better than having a girlfriend is being accused of hiding a non-existent girlfriend.

Hay que trabajar, arriesgar, no puedes tener miedo. Sage advice from my retired uncle.

Took Javi into the city for some food and wandering. Flushing, Little Italy, Chinatown. Little known fact; the counterfeit goods industry in Chinatown, which seems to be pretty lucrative was developed and made a tourist destination because of one enterprising Vietnamese immigrant, David Thai, who also happened to be a big time gangster. Wikipedia told me.

60 Centre Street/Court

Kitschy street signs make me happy

Javi took this picture because he felt like he was in another country.

Do I look like Nintendo? Is that why you playin me?

Nia Long

Started planning for my trip. So far i’m stopping/passing thru Ashville, NC(nation’s biggest house), Memphis (Graceland and food), Little Rock(Bill Clinton Museum), and Grand Canyon National Park. Still looking for interesting stuff between Little Rock and the Grand Canyon.

I’ve had a huge crush on Nia Long since she was on Fresh Prince as Will’s g/f.

I thought you could use some cheering up man. I’d post this on your blog, but then you’d be embarrassed and take it down.

I know you think i'm cute

I missed my gpa cut-off by .01. The difference could have been one sentence or even one multiple question over the course of a year of classes. I’d lose half my scholarship for next year and could get the full amount back for 3rd year if I get back above the cut-off, but I don’t think i’m going to wait that long.

BUY this guy’s car! 23k w/ wheels, 21.5k without. At first I thought the price was 2-3k too high, since you can get a pretty nice FD for about 15k, but you could easily part the seats and the carbon kevlar bits for good money. The rx-7 is aging the best out of all the early and mid 90’s sports cars.

I miss golf courses, socal, and Coffee and Cars

Suede Nardi, Power FC, etc etc

Hard World

Rough World Porsche

I think a lot of people would benefit from spending more time alone just thinking, but it’s not always a good spot for me to be in. My approach to everyday life is measured and deliberate. I usually know what I want, and then I go about getting it. Contrary to recent public opinion, I usually get what I want. I wouldn’t say I’m a type A personality because people tend to use that description to mask dooooshbaggery and a general lack of empathy…I don’t like to tell people what to do unless they ask for help and I don’t think my way of doing things is the best way. I just take care of business…but sometimes, just sometimes I get caught up in my own thoughts and it stops me in my tracks. In an hr long train ride I can vacillate between unbridled optimism where I want to hug everyone and tell them tomorrow is going to be a great day, and feeling really bleak about the fiture. Just pointlessly mulling over all the disrespectful shit someone said to me or the jackass who got the job I wanted.

Thinking is one of the most stressful things I’ve ever come across…
