Thanksgiving break has been cold and somewhat boring so far. Thankful for all my close friends from high school, and that we’ve been able to stay so close after nearly two and a half years of college. Watched “Catching Fire” with them today - Katniss is a babe. Really, though, it’s just so nice I can come home and it’ll be as if nothing has changed with my friends here. I’ve been complaining about your typical first world problems today as well. “It’s too cold in my house and I have a crippling headache. Fuck this person in front of me driving under the speed limit while I’m trying to get home and eat this Chipotle burrito bowl before it gets cold.” Just so glad I have a house and food to eat, let alone Chipotle (!!!).
I do need to reinvent myself, though. I think I put myself out there too much for certain people, and that makes them take me for granted. Going to stop initiating conversation with these people from now on. I’ll probably get a new phone this break, so what will help is not syncing my old contacts and starting from scratch. I guess that’s what I need, really - a fresh start to everything. I guess that’s also why I’m all #finance now. Just gotta make myself happy before I can make others happy.
Two old choreography pieces from back in the day, when we still had Volume Dance Studio. Hope you guys like them. First one (“Megaman” - Lil Wayne) was from summer after freshman year, and second one (“Take My Time” - Chris Brown) was from winter of sophomore year. Cool to see how much I’ve improved both as a dancer and as a choreographer.
Wanted to give everyone the heads up that my good buddy Woody Hines just launched his Kickstarter for his brand Hillflint’s extra-fine grade Australian Merino sweaters. A really great product from an awesome dude.
Awesome to see that they’ve already raised over $10,000 in 12 hours. Follow the link to pick one up: http://bit.ly/mk1swtr
Hillflint. Let’s get it. Amazing sweaters for an amazing price.
Even just in the past two days, starting to feel a lot better about this whole job search / prospects for my career thing. Excited to keep the momentum going.
Tokujin Yoshioka's project 'snow' is a dynamic 15-meter-wide installation. It consists of a scene depicting hundreds of kilograms of light feathers blowing all over
and falling down slowly is meant to remind us of the snow scape of our memories and the beauty of nature which often exceeds our imagination. visitors to the exhibition
experience the feeling of looking at or walking through a snowstorm.

What I really need right now is just a pretty dancer girl who I can talk to about cool concepts and new ideas or even make choreography with. Someone who I can smoke with every night, listening to The Antlers or “Konstantine” by Something Corporate while either bathing in the warm glow of my IKEA duderö’s mood lighting or admiring the night sky in the comfort of my room via my newly-bought star projector. That’s all, really.
what do you do when you only have one semester to woo the girl you like before she leaves to go study abroad?
My mother tells me
that when I meet someone I like,
I have to ask them three questions:
1. what are you afraid of?
2. do you like dogs?
3. what do you do when it rains?
of those three, she says the first one is the most important.
“They gotta be scared of something, baby. Everybody is. If they aren’t afraid of anything, then they don’t believe in anything, either.”
I met you on a Sunday, right
one look and my heart fell into
my stomach like a trap door.
on our second date,
I asked you what you were afraid of.
“spiders, mostly. being alone. little children, like, the ones who just learned how to push a kid over on the playground. oh and space. holy shit, space.”
I asked you if you liked dogs.
“I have three.”
I asked you what you do when it rains.
“sleep, mostly. sometimes I sit at the window and watch the rain droplets race. I make a shelter out of plastic in my backyard for all the stray animals; leave them food and a place to sleep.”
he smiled like he knew.
like his mom told him the same
“how about you?”
I’m scared of everything.
of the hole in the o-zone layer,
of the lady next door who never
smiles at her dog,
and especially of all the secrets
the government must be breaking
it’s back trying to keep from us.
I love dogs so much, you have no idea.
I sleep when it rains.
I want to tell everyone I love them.
I want to find every stray animal and bring them home.
I want to wake up in your hair
and make you shitty coffee
and kiss your neck
and draw silly stick figures of us.
I never want to ask anyone else
