Feeling very optimistic today. Being home helps. Not being in the desert helps. Paying all points for weekend trips helps. Just having time to smell the roses and having enough money that I don’t feel guilty buying the roses helps. Hopefully i’m home long enough to get some training in next week. I really like my new bjj/Muay thai school. It’s pretty much all cholos or younger brown guys and everyone shows up to train hard.

Ready Case

Ready Case

the guy behind this case is also one of my favorite UCLA stories. I had a morning class and one super skinny Eurasian/hapa guy would always show up late and then promptly fall asleep. Luckily we were on the same team for senior project and I got a chance to ask him some questions. It turns out he was staying up late editing a movie. Big deal. Lot’s of people at UCLA want to make movies…but it turns out he made a real fuckin movie. It’s called Palo Alto and it’s actually pretty good. Autumn Reeser and Ben Savage are in it, plus it has some gratutious boobie and a sappy ending. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

It turns out this same guy also used to date a model. Not like 1 or 2 dates, but an actual relationship with a real model. Not a instagram famous model, but a model with representation…the kind who shows up in print ads for Old Navy. No really, I’ve seen her on the wall at Old Navy. Anyway, he is one of the guys behind this phone case(Ready Case). It incorporates a USB,drive, a stand, headphone clip, and different lenses for the camera so you can take your instagramming/tumblr/facebook to a whole new level.

One more weekend before work eats up all my free time. Couch shopping with novia Liu and 626 night market tonight. I’ve gone almost a week without Boba. It sounds bad, but there are literally about 20 boba places at least 5 or 6 world class ones within 10 minutes of our apartment so holding out for 6 days is pretty impressive.
