Sleeping Giant

Sleeping Giant
I'll be honest, I really don't know why I named this sleeping giant. Bf just got off work and I didn't know he was coming to get me. Atleast not right when he got off work. Well now I can't go back to sleep and I had to finish the design for this weeks d_Meth song drop. We had a get together the other day ... I don't remember if I blogged it but my creative family is just the right kind of friends that don't really ask.. What do I get from doing this? But more of... What can we do for you? - which was a Dejavu moment when Brian said it.

I'm hungry- today I'll be going to get my comp built and I wonder what is the right monitor to get. I worry I'll find flaws and hate it.

I had a weird dream with my friend DJ in it. Errr won't go into detail but it was weird.

Do you know what series of numbers I keep seeping besides doubles is now 8:08 - what is the significance of that - I don't know. I am running out of white paint and I wonder where and when I need to get more because I want to do this series right. I started the painting and get frustrated at the fact the mother has been snooping through my things. It is obvious when things are moved and taken away and such and such.

The thought of wanting to move out keeps tapping in my mind, but I just don't have enough cushion to do so. If you don't know what I mean by cushion - it's the money for when I feel safe enough to be on my own. 10-25 grand. So the saving plan had been set back with the new year holiday and the computer purchase and Reno costs. But that's ok. I'll still be able to go into the new year in good financial standing. Work has been growing so- no lack of work.

I have been feeling tired lately but only cause my brain keeps going. The sun also plays a factor on me. I love the sun. I read somewhere that a Spanish lady registered herself a the owner of the sun and now wants to charge everyone who uses it. Really?! Good luck. Cause everyone and everything in this world basically uses the sun. I find this a strange train of thought. What happens if some other being in from some other planet registered it. In the ability to claim something that is not even on earth to be yours unless you created something and sent it off to space. You can register yourself as the one who discovered it. But if it is not physically with in your reach- if it existed before your time, it's not even here on earth - what right to do you have to claim that it's yours? I mean things on earth are worldly. Here on earth you can claim you're the discoverer of something before anyone else on earth - star and planet. But when it comes ownership. You have no rights to do so. We are not smart enough to know any universal rights- when we have not had full proof and communicative abilities with other beings that exists in this universe.

It really is like claiming the air is yours and charging everyone who breathes a fee. Everyone would say- fuck off.

We pay taxes though an fees. Eco-fees . For the water we use and the air we pollute. Where this money goes- I really don't know.

Trails Of Me

Trails Of Me
There's a piece of me left underneath the stairs- in the cabins - on the island. They remember the magical place you brought me where the sand seemed to endlessly meet the sea. Do you think of me when your feet walk on to the sands?

There's a piece of me left in a moment of time. Where celebrations mixed with confusion - when you squeezed me in your arms then decided to let me go. Will you think of me when a new year turns to past?

There's a piece of me left hung on your walls - where water flows and bubbles rise onto the surface. How a trade seems more than just. Do you still love me when you look upon them?

There's a piece of me left within your memories. And it's the same in reverse. Is it a trail that I'm leaving? or a silent curse? Scattered images through out time- where I can no longer call them mine. There are so many of you that I've sadly now forgot - forced to push them out of mind just to save my heart.

There's a piece of me left- it lingers through out space and time. How I journey on and on with no daily grind. I try my best to not remember - emotions stir about. That's about all that comes to- the heartaches and the doubts. So I live it day by day - which turns to months and months. I know the ones who love me now- don't say it very much. They show it in the things they do - it makes me smile in my heart. There's a piece of me left now while i'v crumbled all apart.

What did you do yesterday?

What did you do yesterday?
Dad left for Chicago - or at least I think he did considering he left early. Wow I think I only had a few hours of rest till my mom barged in my room to tell me it's a snow storm and wondering if I'll be going to work cause she won't be. Unless there's like a foot of snow - I don't think I have an excuse. I mean - it's not school - we don't get cancelations with work. Unless you get fired. I'm so hungry. I hope no one bugs me tonight cause I want to purely paint tonight. Or create - graphic design wise. No interruptions please.
Yesterday I had work as usual and then after - I met in person someone I had been meaning to meet for a while. This guy to me is talent. He feels so well in the loop of Vancouver. And me little shy thing. I think what he does is pretty brave - the events - yet he thinks I'm brave for the YouTube stuff. I'm having a moment of Dejavu - of several events. Strange. We spoke about what we do and what we would like to do. But if I was to meet anyone - this guys a good add to my list of people in my circle. Yes yes- after an hour of that I head on to home depot to buy a sander considering that ours at home had magically disappeared. I kept debating if it was worth it to spend so much more on a sander that sucks in dust as well. Even the sales man said no- because it only does 60% reduction on the dust it's producing. Really- shit that's not very much. So my 100$ purchase turned into a 40$ one since the mouse sander was on sale. I got an extension cord for my room as well and left. Head on home and the time seemed to fly. Even when I called my dad about picking me up- he was like- you said 20 mins. I was 20 mins away - he said it felt like 5 mins before I called him back. Yes- I'm not the only one feeling like time is going so fast. I tried to tell him I wasn't that far away.
After dinner I started painting. This thing is more difficult to conceptualize more than I thought. There's one thing about seeing it in your head and then there's another to make it come to life.
Umm my train stopped and witnessing another come pull up behind us is kinds scary especially when you're closest to contact point if it was to hit us! Anyways my train started moving again.
After painting I emailed some things off- an invoice - deposited money- and then went to go sand the washroom. The power sander did make it much more easier. - took a shower and went to bed. By that time it was already around 4-ish.
Now today- I get woken up by mom. I had ignored all my alarms. I got dressed and smiled as I walked through the snow to the bus stop - the bus however was late. By a lot and skytrain seems to be having delays as well. - I'm making today a glasses day. Just a little too lazy to put on contacts today.

Sorry Lady

Get this - Lady comes into see someone who my company shares offices with. I go to check if he's in. He's not. She starts asking me when / if he's going to be.. I say I don't know - I'm not the secretary. She asks if there is someone she can talk to - I go look for the other guy that works here for that company. He's on the phone. I tell her that... I ask if the person she came to see knows she would be here / it was a set meeting. She said No but she said she would drop by. She asks if she should call him... I say yes... and she looks at me like I'm crazy and I was not helpful at all. [ Sorry lady, I can't help you when you came unprepared ]

Again with the rudeness

Again with the rudeness
Seriously again with the people just pushing their way to get out of the bus. We are all catching the same train, what is one second to wait for someone who's already standing to clear out first. It's courtesy. And if you wonder why people are rude to you?! If you want courtesy - fucking preach it!
Ok that's enough - well yesterday I went on a huge detour just to get to the art store for the canvases that I'll be painting and putting up in Starbucks. It was the biggest canvas - I had 6 that I had to lug via transit but the worst part was getting there! The skytrain delayed because of most likely a suicide - selfish people - which caused major back up and then there was this other incident with the tracks malfunctioning. Omg really! Then I take the wrong bus that doesn't stop at all stops So I had to do a loop around the city. It was just really bothersome.
Then I had a meeting with some D-Meth members. Some because not everyone was there. I was being drained though. A lot of energy to scattered. Maybe it was just my adventure of getting to the art store.
I'm having troubles shaking thoughts of the past. So I try my best to keep thinking about right now. There really no point in stirring emotions for people who show little or nothing for you. I can't walk backwards when I've come so far forward. Another Christmas is coming - and still strange to break a tradition I've done for so many years- to not see faces I have done for years and years. It's like moving away to another city from family members. And when you run into someone - you feel like you are on vacation to come see them. But it's gotten a lot easier. Just as long as no association is made - no spoken names- no faces - no updates. Then i will be okay. You're living your life - I am living mine.
I have a great guy who makes me smile and laugh every time I was with him.
I think that's all that I can ask from him. To make me laugh everyday I'm with him.
- did I ever note I hate how road crews seem to pick the worst dates to construction at certain locations? -
I'm hungry- time:

Waking Up Happy

Waking Up Happy
It's good to have this feeling. To wake up and snuggle warmly in your bed. Alone is not how I prefer it sometimes but a little alone time doesn't hurt.

Time: 8-16 in the morning and I wonder if there are any unwritten rules when sitting on the skytrain. How your legs should be, arms. EEhhh I'm small. Anyways- I spent last night re-uploading design programs onto my laptop. Success is what makes it that much sweeter. Designing in my warm room is good. Maybe this will buy sometime to save up what I need for the new comp build. I mean I have enough to purchase it now but that's sacrificing some spending money and saving money per month. I think Um just glad I can design off my lap again. But I know for a fact that I can't video edit time lapses on there anymore and the laptop will soon have to dubbed as work only and travel. Where the files have to be cleaned out regularly.

Do people not lean forward to relief shoulder contact while sitting any more or is that just me not like touching other people too much. I spent last night designing my friends logo which I will continue later tonight and also someone else' logo. Never a bad thing to make more income. Never a bad thing to be your own boss. Man I really just want to draw and design and paint all day and get paid for it. I mean I get half of that at work but I still do a lot of admin and business relations stuff. Essentials knowing how to conduct yourself so well over an email that someone thinks that you're your boss. But the ability to speak to the client and talk them through a situation is key too. Hard sometimes to feel you have to dumb yourself down at times when speaking design, web, or programs. Shit life sucks when you feel that way but it's a good thing to know you understand something more than some others - or they wouldn't be calling on you.

I came home last night- before I did I was thinking how to move things out of the studio space - only to find everything's been moved! I was pretty happy. I wonder if dad unknowingly feels what I'm trying to do. Makes free space for me to paint. I will need to hit up desserres tonight as i just got the text of how big the canvas i need has to be- but it's all good. Life's good.

Funny story- the other day me and the boyfriend went to superstore where he parked in the expecting mothers spot. I frowned against it but then asked if I was I probably wouldn't tell him for two months. But I was just kidding. I ended up walking around extending my stomach with air and I wonder if boyfriend noticed I did that - Hahha did it for fun and didn't feel like being yelled at but then again I was wearing a pretty bulky jacket.

I love having a guy that makes me smile and laugh every time I'm with him.

I dunno to laugh or to just *hmmmpphh!!!! * *upset face*

I Will Punch You In The Face

I Will Punch You In The Face
If you speak stupid random things at me. I don't think I can tolerate the things that certain people say. Don't disrespect the music I'm listening to - do not discount Kanye Wests' artistic skills and visionary as any other - garbage song. Ugh - it made me mad when he said - " is that what goes for music now a days?" what are you? 100? - he said he was kidding but like some - some remarks aren't funny.

And don't compare yourself to me- someone said they believed they were o ahead of the game. - I hate to burst your bubble but I've only been playing 10% of my full potential. As I recovered from one of the most life changing years of my life.

It's Snowing!

It's Snowing!
Do you know it's very hard to look sexy in snow boots. Wait unless you're in a bikini And snow boots - then someone can probably pull it off. I keep thinking of Toronto the few days or weeks. I guess it could be that because it was around this time last year I was there? - one year - what's changed? A lot? Or not enough?
I worked till 3:00 am this morning. And more an more I'm only getting 3-4 hour sleep on work days. And my dad wonders why I can't wake up in the morning. I can wake up- getting out of a nice warm bed- that's a different story. What was I doing? - well you see since moving and all that jazz I had'nt had time to do laundry. 3-4 loads of laundry. Washing - drying and folding. I moved my final dresser in and now the room- furniture wise is complete. Unpacked- is another story. Slowly but surely it's getting there.
And I spent my last few hours designing this Saturdays Desi Method songs cover art. This weeks will perhaps feature hand art from me.
I wonder what this song sounds like. When u design the cover art - I usually play the song over and over and I try to pull and convey the song into visuals. What emotions and colors the beat stirs in my creative mind and being.
What's made me mad today and yesterday. Yesterday morning- dad knocks on the floor upstairs to wake up. I was changing when he did that. Makes me think I should have just moved out.
This morning mom comes to search downstairs where the car scrapper & brush is. I said I don't have it. She didn't believe me. I don't understand why they would accuse me of taking it and stashing it somewhere since I don't even have a car. Why would I need it?
I forgot to pack clothes today. Balls. Means no change of clothes if I stay over at the bf's.
Boss is away for the next four days. It's been quiet the last few days. I hope the clients won't stir up stuff when the boss clearly said he would be away. Designing new sites for new clients :). Sometimes I wonder if I should be in a relationship right now. My attention is split between so many different things. Today for an hour is my personal date. Yesterday was alone time but I spent it working out- doing laundry and designing. I wish I had like two clones. So there's three of me. We can all sleep together in the same bed. It's big enough and I'm small enough to do so. One would work some odd ball jobs and one would clean all day and do laundry and one would design all day and that would be me!!! Wahahaha. Either that or they better make teleporting soon. Travel time - make me feel like I'm wasting time. Then again I blog now during travels and read if I remembered to bring my book. I should sketch if I can. But it's rough reading a hunka chunka book when you're standing. So if I don't get a seat and it's too crowded I deny myself the right to read or sketch. Which kinda sucks.
Starting to wonder if Vancouver is behind Toronto by a lot. Considering body world came not too long ago and I saw the same show last year in Toronto. I noticed we're finally getting three bin systems! The recycling hoops around light posts were so lame Vancouver! You spent money to manufacture a system that can't even withstand Vancouver elements and life span is shorter by so much. Have the bin system. Have the recycling that the public throws away be given back into the community.

Say the Positive

Say the Positive
your negativity can remain and live with you. If you choose to spread hate- I will look at you with disgust. We're better than that. We may not think a like. But the last thing I like to hear from anybodies mouth is total smack. Sometimes people can find other people's sarcasm as crude. I'm too nice to say to someones face that they are being an asshole. So watch what you say- dim your ego that can be broken like an eggshell and remain humble. Don't believe you're above so many. If you're going to make a statement of such high stature- I- out of a few have the biggest urge to knock you off your high horse. Stop living to make others see- what you're made of. Especially to those who weren't paying much attention to you in the first place. Live for yourself - don't turn your downs to ups for anyone else but you. If you do the things you do to show up a certain someone - you have a chance to become very unhappy. There's no doubt about it because your energy is so sadly wasted. Why give so much power to someone who gave you neither the time or day. Let go. If you don't have the guts to say what you would really want to say to someone when you love them - why tell them that you hate them when you hate them? Your emotional disturbance does not benefit anyone. Hit a point where your standards feel broken and stop yourself. What is your self worth? Don't talk the talk if you can not walk the walk. In the end words are only words and with no action - they mean nothing. I tell people when I love them- I tell them when I miss them. I hold nothing back but cruel energy. The energy I feel when I hate - feel frustrated - feel like knocking off someone from their thrown - and if not to make them see that they hold only great imagination that they really are heirs to the kingdom of nothingness. If you had a child at this moment- very moment god fast forwarded your life with a child. What can you truly say to your child that you've done? Have you led an example life of success for your child to truly believe that they can be anything they hope to be? Would you tell them to chase the passion? Or the money? Or tell them to chase the money to build the happiness and security?

If your life is built on striving for more money - trying to buy happiness - I'll be honest - having money and buying things is quite fulfilling- but if money buys your happiness ... Keep in mind that money can run out easily. Very easily. If you build your life on passion, the fortune that comes with it is endless. Build your life on money, and you can count your fortune, happiness, security.

Life is not a numbers game- it's an emotional one.

Know what emotion you live for.

Sunny Then Cloudy

Sunny Then Cloudy
This is the basic norm of Vancouver weather. Frick I'm hungry. I just woke up at 7- I'm gonna goto work and eats! I really don't know what to write this morning. I exercised last night doing the light jog to brisk walking thing altering at every minute. Tiring really. Even more dangerous when you're making a protein shake at the same time. The other day- I traded in my lotto ticket. On three sets I got a free draw. What are the odds of that?
After work yesterday I went to go pick up my jewelry and it's so shiny and new looking! Clean earrings for the win! After that I met up with SJ. He seemed a little stuck on how to promote. I spat out every idea I had. Who and where to go. Who he should be contacting. I seemed to have sparked something. My abs are still sore. But my body feels tighter. I'm wondering if I should go look for my knee high boots. :( but to be honest I had dedicated most of my expenditures of this month to go towards others and not solely on me. For Christmas presents and such. I'm wondering should I put together a care package to ship to Australia for the brother and his girlfriend. Still debating.
I worked last night on recovering one of my clients sites data. I hope I got everything cause I'm going to try to grow them back live later today. I should re-design for them. But that will come later. Worked on DJ-'s t shirt design. I hope he can get it printed.
Well really don't have anything else left to say.

Running Late

Running Late
Just a tad today. Yesterday was a strange happy day with babies smiling at me in the bus. Once in the morning and once on the way home. My sister would say it's the auras of people they are sensitive to. Well I really don't know if they are looking at me or whatever chooses to stand beside me - guardian angel wise. As I got home from work - I got changed and worked out. - full body on my own. I don't know if me wanting to just relax and sleep was due to the work out but - I remember waking up with a body jump as I dreamt I went into a run. Omg - dream working out. I have a headache this morning . I'm just gonna rest a bit now.

Mmmm Snap Peas

I have to admit, someone I dated made me fall in love with snap peas. I'm crunching on some right now and I'm thinking. Why?! why did I have to start eating this wonderful veggie that's crunchy, a bit sweet, and good for you.

Don't Be Rude

Don't Be Rude
I don't know when the courtesy of waiting for someone who sits before exit or standing in a bus was thrown out the window, but they better go outside and retrieve it cause I'm tired of this - rudeness. I may say that I courtesy wasn't something I grew up being taught with, like many things I naturally adapted through the years as a teen. But when did people stop practicing common courtesy? Don't be rude. What's the rush? This city's full of people who believe their lives are more important than so many others. Eyes wide open please.

Man I woke up this morning with my upper abs hurting. Yesterday I woke up. Made breakfast and ate before DJ came over to give me a -1on1- personal training session of basics. He showed me lightly my nutrition plan, and we went for a light jog and came back to show me a few work outs to do. My arms are sore too. Yesterday was just a light work out too. I'm gonna die later today. If I don't blog Tomorrow morning- I'm dead. LoL. It was pretty funny how when we returned to my place after the light jog warm up how he seemed to be in disbelief when he stated that I made him sweat - my reply - Really?! And we didn't even have sex! :o - I was just kidding - we both have a light laugh - man my abs are kind of sore. No pain no gain I guess. Especially when I want abs. I woke up this morning and ate two eggs - sunny side up. With half a cup of sprouts with cilantro and a slice of whole wheat bread, accompanied with 2/3rd cup of blue berry juice. Sorry no pictures. Pretty filling. As I ate breakfast - two eggs were boiling over the stove. I brought that and a banana to work. Either for a part of my snack or lunch. I have food at work. If not I can go buy some. Pretty awesome where I work considering it's close proximity to a lot of things. I won't deny, it would be awesome to have a condo at the shangri la.

Yesterday after my work out I started to move my bed - washed my sheets in the process. I got that set up now in the new room. I also put up my snowboard rack! It freaking rocks! I'm trying to see if I can move down the dressers today. Then it will be unpacking time. I also have to move stuff upstairs and set up the new guest room. Too bad mom's going to fill it up in no time. But it is their house. And there is no denying that when she dies it will be me that cleans it. Unless I go before siblings - then tough beans Sis and bro. I got the tv cable working - I'm starting to think it's the cable lines that aren't working but I don't think thats the case - I think the old tv in the living room just gave out.

- there's a girl next to me eating a chocolate cookie with chocolate filling- it's morning time- don't you think that shits bad for you? How on earth is your skin so clear?! Shit- some people just have good genetics or something.-

Anyways- I'll be setting up my new room. I am most likely going to paint a multiple canvas painting this week. What am I doing today at work- I have no clue- I hope I get to design something new. Art & Design has become my drug... I need to get my fix.

I might go over some PDF magazines tonight to inspire me some. - and I need to design DJ's stuff. No fair game if I don't hold up my bargain.

I think I laid in bed with Music blasting at my head this morning. This shows you I can probably sleep at a rave. - through a storm. Shit - I might just die in a natural disaster.

I should do a new video today or sometime this week. Not only Desi Method's Fan base growing- so is mine. It's one whole connected entity now. One will help the other regardless. We're all connected some how- just only some of us are more aware of it.

Snuggles

He shivers - I warm him in an embrace.

I'll let him sleep with me tonight.

Evil Envy

Desi Method is going on 9 weeks in a row of putting out songs every Sat. and this weeks was Radiophonic. We had a meeting earlier this week about how the shoot should look, but I simply wanted to plug ideas in and wanted Vik to take control of the shoot and see what he could flush out. More than anything I want to see what this crew is made of. To be honest, they have yet to fail me. It's one of the reasons why I'm still in it to win it.

I spent Friday night and today with Ry ♥ . We slept like bears till 12 *super lazy!* and then got up and got dressed and went to dim sum at Dai Tong. Really good, but I felt like we ate really fast. After dim sum we went to PNE - there was a shoe sale going on. Ry thought he would be able to score some shoes. Turns out to be all girls. On the way in it said some "petite" shoes sale signs. What a crock of lies! Considering they only had one sad little rack of 5&1/2's ( had like 4 pair of shoes on it ) and 5's. We left and went back to his place and took a nap. Woke up, had dinner and went to go watch a movie in Coquitlam. We watched "The Social Network" - After watching Social Network - it makes me feel like... Making something from an idea is not crazy. A lot of things that exists today were created by thought and following though.

Then I go home - and the help of Ry ♥ and Dad ♥ my shelf goes vertical! Awesome. Which means later today will be filled with moving down into my new space and unpacking! What What. I should finish the washroom, sanding the ceiling and painting it though before actually using it. After I move the electronics down I have to now figure why the TV cable isn't working.

I got onto facebook to check stuff to notice one of my 'face' friends just got engaged. Wow. I didn't think she would - well at least before me that is - that's so mean of me to say. This is ugly sze talking. So just ignore these green eyes. I'm happy for her and wish her the best. - Restarting sucks shit! there - I said it. Being in a new relationship with someone who cares and is different - is awesome - to be honest, would not trade 'now' to go back for 'then'. Then already happened. What's awesome is surviving the downfall and picking yourself back up. Everyone who's survived a split - especially from one that promised so much - deserves props. You now know exactly what you should have, that you're still here - and that's all that matters and make NOW matter even more.

I should sleep. it's 2:12am - and I have work out session with personal trainer DJ.
My brain doesn't shut off as I like it to when I'm on my own.

Dear God: Let Desi Method - be the/ produce triple threats in & to the industries. Thank You.

I thought about this the other day... How I want to say to people who really know me. Stay by me and I'll be true and stay by you. Believe in me, it's all I can ask for. I will try my best to never fail you.

Yesterdays

Yesterdays
Well what's more to say than yesterday was a bit interesting. I spent most of the day cleaning - I swept up the kitchen and mopped the floors, cleared our the room and swept and mopped those floors, put on the tint on the window. SJ and his brother came and we went to Ikea. When I first went, I was a bit cautious if the boxes would fit. SJ - we'll make them fit. Well I didn't know how big the boxes were till I saw them and I was worried. Then the guys started to worry. I purchased it and somehow the guys fit it. ( although this is pretty dangerous) they slid he boxes down the center resting on the center console. The thing is two boxes that sat on top rested between headrests to keep them in place. - see that's all on a 'still' theory but when movement is introduced you have to be careful. See there was my headrest behind the drivers that so on a right had turn and the back swings. My head and RJ's head is safe because my headrest stops the back from sliding. There was no safety for SJ on left hand turns and what ended up happening is I had to grab and steady the top two boxes with my right arm the drive during motion. My butt wasn't even sitting down on the drive. Left hand turns were rough! Let's just say...if I didn't do what I did.. It would take SJ out, and he's our driver! It was scary... So much so I was sweating! And we didn't even got straight back to my house after >_< SJ wanted to hit up Walmart. I thought my arm was just going to give. :( but we made it and went to Walmart to get some supplies for the cd mix tape of Desi Methods works. He needed cases to hand them out in, labels and in the check out I ended up picking up post it stickies that were arrows and said.. Listen. SJ - right away said get it.
Yesterday when I was cleaning out the room. I cleared off the guest mattress and was taking apart the frame when I discover all these random pieces of wooden boards, cement tiles, bags of large pieces of fabric. I'll be honest- I'm tired of this constant rotation. I wanted to throw out the bed frame right there and then because I'm so sick of having to believe that an easy clean up job would be easy. To only discover this whole bunch of hidden stuff I must now spend more energy to clean out. I told her I was tired of it. As I called my father down. Her being her quickly picked up her pieces and moved them. Mom's like a mouse. She's quick and quiet and builds a nest. When I decided to move - my sister asked what about mom. What she's going to do to my current room. I can't worry about that. I can't control her. If I chose to stay or not she will still do what she does. Hoarding is not something you can change over night. I think If we called the hoarding people over - mom would be the toughest case. She would beat people up! Lol - ok maybe exaggerating but I do come from two parents that taught us how to defend ourselves from a very young age. But she's a hard shell to crack. My family dreads the day she passes away. Perhaps me the most cause I feel that I will be the one to have to clean it all up. I shouldn't dread my moms actions in life - but as much as I don't want to - I stress at the thought of staying and the thought of leaving. Leaving my dad to having to put up with my mom will be a hard thin to do. It is a problem but I spent a lot of time having to deal with it.
When we got back to the house, built the shelf. Then when it came time to lift the massive beast. I was in trouble. What on earth made me think I would be able To get it up right on my own really baffles me. I asked mom for assistance but she took one look and was a negative Nancy. Didn't even try and started to say negative things. Well I left that alone and just did the cover art of this Saturdays song. However the deadline is today so - priority. What needs to be done now... Is done now... Some other things can wait.

Another Day

Another Day
It's a holiday tomorrow, but it's one of remembrance. To think about all those who died in the wars. Would you give your life to serve a country? To protect the people. I've thought about it- joining the army. But a lot of people say I maybe too short- like when I wanted to be a cop. Oh well.

Yesterday I went to work like any other but the day was filled with forehead hitting at the disbelief at the current client's website that I'm trying finish by Friday. Wow- I really hate doing things again and again. Ahh I'm being paid for it. - what should I eat this morning?- I'm in transit to work as I write this. I'm so blank. Feeling tired. I'm happy the dog slept the night through. I had the weirdest dream about zombies in my house, having an adopted Caucasian son who was a very big kid. I'll tell you right now- I'm si getting a samurai sword this summer, cause again in my dream I didn't have the motorcycle helmet and sword to protect me. So lame!

Anyways- I went off track. <3 Ry drove me home and I set the alarm system I got up. I wonder can I get one with a camera and hook up video feed to a digital picture frame? - off track again. Well I didn't finish setting it up. I went to a meeting with Vik, Shalini, and SJ - talking about this weeks song drop for Saturday. Damn. Which means I should try to load my design programs back onto my comp. Balls. Unless I could use his brothers comp that has the Photoshop and etc. Man what do I do. I should start building my comp. Anyways - we were talking and brainstorming for a photo shoot that's going down thursday. I don't think they need me there. I gave my creative input- I would like to see what creative genius Vik can flush out. I has so much potential. Yet his aura is so lax. Dad asked me last night what our meeting wad for when I was about to leave. How do I explain it? Lol I tried on Sunday. Peter - sisters fiancé - said I should say I'm just in a band. Lol . I collaborate and work with some of the best creative genius' of our current time. They are the creatively artistic family and friends I've been hoping for all the years before. We were all in the thought process last year and just collectively began to hustle. Do - no more plotting to- we spent a year plus doing so. Just do what you want to And focus on that. I like that. I wish someone else was more focused but he's living his own life. I can't tell him I feel like the endeavors he decides to take on lead him astray from his dreams. If you only speak of your dreams and choose to knowingly step the opposite direction from it. That's your choice. No one can tell you the path your on, cause they run their own path, it may run parallel- but we have our own ups and downs and speed bumps. Our experiences are the similar, but not the same. I should pull back now a days to try to make people to see from my perspective- more and more these days I just take it as it is and go on. Think for yourself. See from all sides. Think before you do. Spit out your thoughts when you have them and need to. But listen. Listening is a way of love. It is one of the most simple ways to show someone you love them. Is to listen.

SJ -said we've done what we need to and now we're just waiting to tap lady luck on our shoulder. ( I don't feel like I'm there yet personally ) I still feel like I'm being processed.

Last night when we were going to get a PO box set up for PP- SJ was teaching me some vocal lessons. Me - and my shyness comes out. I don't know why. He said to me something that made me take a moment. He said - "don't be afraid to play."

When I was shying out- he also said... Yes yea.. Natural and good fun and laughs, but we don't we no longer have time for that. We simply can't afford to.

He's right. I cannot be afraid to play. And I have no more time to waste. We should push till the end of this 2010 year. Then push harder this upcoming 2011.

Duplicated States

Have you ever had a moment that felt like one of the past. As I was moving stuff downstairs and grabbed some of my belongings and was heading towards my room I felt something. I felt like how I felt in Toronto. See I'm a pretty shy person, trying to break away from my natural shyness. I don't know what it is that makes me feel like it was when I was there. The air? - The comfortableness? The independence?

falling asleep... blog entry continues tomorrow.

DISS

I seem to like to skip morning pages in the weekends. Let me sum it up for you.

Friday after work I went to go visit my sister and the baby. I was in the line waiting for the bus when she said she'll come pick me up. I'm holding a package inside with Chrismas presents for people. - that reminds me I should ship a package out back home ( home land ) - that has presents :p . - I accompanied my sister to KFC as she picked up dinner. I ended up giving the books I got for Christmas early. I can get something else for him later on. I got home later that night and wrapped Ry's other present that came in the box. That's night I also got to work on trying to solve the D-Meth site problem of not having a navigation at the bottom of the site to view previous pages. I didn't solve this problem till Saturday morning - where I woke up pretty early to work on stuff.

Later on that evening I accompanied my dad to an Art show where my piece is placed in. Not really promoting this one like I did last year. Considering I kind of wanted to see the caliber of work that was being awarded. And the other peoples. The show made me feel that I should start to paint asian art again. The scene is a bit- lacking. I'm not saying my work is the best. But it sucks when I now have that skills to rip apart a painting. I judge it on every basis. Colour, water control, composition, strokes, flow. Yes I look at every little thing before the whole. I don't judge things on little parts - though little parts make a difference. Art or people. I think composition has to be a critical part of any art. The push and pull of the elements. I'm glad that my first oriental painting teacher taught me this. Then I learned further and more reasons why from my second teacher about composition. Once I learned the basic theory - my paintings started to flow. - I just geeked out. - Okok well apparently at the art show they renamed my piece and then my friend said that they even spelt my name wrong. Definitely not promoting this one. On the way home I waited in the car as dad when to do a job. I was texting SJ in the process. Later on I went to lunch with dad before hitting up home depot with him. It was nice to spend some time with him. Me asking random questions - Like could he play an instrument- the answer was no. We picked out the lighting, some paint, and some other stuff and ended up dropping a pretty penny for everything but thats okay. Dad wad like to me - be sure to keep the receipt! Lol - I know dad. Cause unlike events in our lives - we can return items when they don't seem to work out. I wish receipts came with people. - oh that's mean. We for home and I just placed everything downstairs. Moved some things between the guest room and my room. Then I started making earrings. I made earrings most of Sunday. I spray painted my Munny. Went for a run around 6pm. My 5k jog&walk. Did half half. Got back in 40 mins. When I got back, sister , her fiancé and baby were over. We had dinner together. After they left for a bit I relaxed, baked some cookies. Showered and just hopped into bed after. Thought perhaps the boyfriend would come pick me up since he was flying back from Vegas. But it was predictable he would be too tired. Well I'm off to work.

TGIF

TGIF
I'm usually never appreciated weekends. I used to work such off and on days.

Its been strange at work, as it's all piling up- my boss refers to me as the senior designer. He's making me take on other tasks that make it difficult just to do my work straight on. I can't just design- I have to think and bounce back information of what will work, and what wouldn't for a client site out if given content. I guess I have to take on more responsibility as our client list is growing double the rate from last year. Me and my boss are both Libras so this boost of fast and furious changes apply to the both of us if this is universal energy bouncing back at us.

I'm looking flight centre deals and I feel like going on a vacation. LOL . Wow Jamaica seems so cheap to go vacay. I don't know what to write this morning. I've been busy at work.

I was on the bus going home yesterday - researching a bit on loft spaces in Vancouver and New West. Two people hop onto the bus, expecting the bus driver to give them a free ride. The bus driver stops at a stop for the longest time. One of the guys that hopped on sat next to me. The lot of us are wondering what's going on. Until the bus driver explained what these people are trying to do. I think it made a lot of people uncomfortable. These two people were pretty young too. Late teens. Early twenties? I hate public confrontations - it makes everyone nervous.

I got home, changed and went to do my five kilometer run knowing it will take me my 45 mins area to complete. The weird thing about my run was that its the first time I did it after hours. Where the city lights seem brighter and the sun is already at the cusp of fully not being seen. The dim light just around the bend of it's rotation. The sky was a dark grey. And by the time I got back it was dark. And this morning, I'm sore! My core, but my thighs even more. It's annoying. Protein shakes please! Last night I tried to customize my phone, but it seems as though somethings aren't working. And I'm seeking help from my friend who told me about these updates. He even showed me face time on the phone. It was very cool! I wish I could do that with my cousin. I miss her!

Esjay is right about this feeling. I explained it as - if so many dejavus are happening. Then I know that things were meant to happen. It feels like puzzle pieces falling into place. But now faster than expected. No slowing down. I got an Artshow this weekend to attend. I may paint tonight. What else. I have no clue. What should I eat this morning at work? Hmmmmm.

My Core Hurts

My Core Hurts
I started my first personal training session run yesterday. 45 mins non stop. And I'm sore. Especially my core.

Well yesterday at work was more
Like any other. After work booked my butt to meet with DJ and went for a run around a track. See during this time it should have been meditative. But I ended up calling my dad in the middle of it. See since having more
Friends around me, ( like usual more guys than girls ) my dad thinks I'm being stupid or fooling around. Its pure friendship and business. I know - business and friends sometimes don't work. But this does. Cause right now our main focus is not money. We don't even want to focus our energy there because we all know we're not g to be the best at what we do - for money. People may ask, what for. Honestly, to see what we are capable of and nothing more. We aren't competing with anyone else but ourselves when we say we want to be better. Our focus is us and what we can do. Not what we can't. No worries, no fears, no doubt.

You're wrong if you believe that we don't think about it - money - we do - we just don't worry about it. When good things happen, they happen. If you worry about your finances - you will always worry about it and you're going to spend half your energy in a day just thinking about what's in your account. What your making / investing. You should be making you. Investing in yourself. Die tomorrow and what would your life had been for?

3am Tears

3am Tears
Yeah, I got my response email from my brother getting a room swap. Too it wasn't only a decline but him clearly stating the fact of what he thought of me - not so nice things to repeat. Some things he stated were true, some he clearly doesn't get / understand or know. Have I been bashing my family on my online personal journal?! But I never in the slightest meant to give the image that my parents are the worst parents or bad people. I just state the truth of what's happening and what's been said and how I feel about it - at the moment. I was in my - good period - where I can only explain that I've been feeling really loved this last week - till I got this one email. I'll be honest - kind of typical to expect this kind of energy from the brother. Same energy from dad. But Dads just seems to be happy that I produced some art and have entered an Art show. I'll try my best to not let the negative things my brother said to me get me but - it's family. Like I said before - I'd like the support but clearly not feeling it's there. I know there's one thing about my dad and that is he will always be there when it comes to me and art - which is fantastic.

Renovations are still underway slowly. When I do find the time to be at home and have the energy to do so. I've been so busy these days. At work, after work.

D_Method ( my music crew ) is growing. Inch by inch my friend SJ says but we're growing. Mali's latest song was one of the most downloaded I don't remember if it was for a day or this week so far- but the song only came out on sat. Wow- most downloaded in what I can only dub as the Bollywood scene is well tough beans - no?

I guess my friends are right - my brother says that people are out there laughing at me - I'll let them laugh at me. My family? - no - there's really no reason to do that because we're like any other dysfunctional family. And we all know how many there are out there. But where are my friends right? That I shouldn't let the negative energy break me. I'm building something - though many may not notice, or see at the time being - I'm doing something towards my ultimate dream.

I've started to swap my room with my guest room. I'm going to start writing extra cheques to my dad for rent. The question is will he accept it- he's always questioning if I have enough money. I have enough - dad. I'm pretty safe right now- enough to even save with and spend and pay bills and rent. I hate talking about money. It is and should be the least of my worries. Things happen. I understand and that's why you have your safety cushion. I'm building it to have no worries when something does happen.

The hacker thing happened over the weekend. Where my site was hacked- but I know I shouldn't let that get to me either. New site should have more and better things.

SJ - DJ - PP are the three that right now are probably supporting me spiritually right now. Out of my friends. I know Ry supports me regardless.

Whats going on this week. Got to launch 2-3 websites. Song drop on sat. Website re-build. And helping my friend with his branding. Oh and websites for the gb.
