New Kid On The Block

First day of “class” went well!

Maybe more on this later. Maybe not. Probably not.

First Day of School. Kinda.

So technically the first day of “school” is Thursday. And guess what? GAH! We already have a presentation to present!

Uhhhh. Sup bruh. You realize you only gave me & my dream team 2 days to create a Business Model Canvas & present our pitch right?

Oh. That’s right. This is all accelerated. #womps. -______-

Anyway, yes. Today (or rather…tonight) is technically not the first day of “school,” but it IS the first time I’ll be meeting the rest of my team–the peeps I will be working closely for the next 6 weeks…

So far errything have been falling into place. Last week, I verbally signed over my soul for the next month and a half to C.Ling. He submitted the application. We found out we got accepted on Black Friday (HAAAY! Talk about things to be thankful for, ey?). We found out what our first milestone was today so we’ll most likely discuss it over tonight’s dinner.

Geezus. Things are definitely moving fast. Am I in college again?

Seems like it.

I don’t even have the time or energy to be excited over meeting “my classmates.” Oh wells.

Anyway, I hope it all works out. But if not, I know I’ll still grow from this experience. It’s time to step up again and be a leader. Be a risk taker. Be an inventor. Be an executor (of ideas…not living things…har har).

RAWR!

In other news, I’ve been tweaking a few of my friends’ resumes and cover letters. Though a bit time-consuming, it’s actually been pretty fun to work on. I definitely need to update mine at some point as well. HAH! Who knows. If this whole thing doesn’t work…I suppose it’s time to move on to new challenges. New job finally? Perhaps even a new…city? #foreshadow

Neener neener. 😛

Another AdVENTURE / The Journey. Not the Destination.

I wasn’t going to say anything to anyone nor was I going to freakin write about it here, buuuuuut I felt the need to. I was actually going to do a photo update on my NY & DC trip (I know. I know. HELLA. FUCKIN. LATE. haha).

But who knows. Maybe in years (or even months) to come I can go back to WordPress and remember today as the day…I signed my soul over.

WOW. Dramatic much?

Just a little.

OK!

I guess it’s not thaaaaat big of a deal. But then again, it has the potential to be.

I’m trying not to put all my eggs in a basket  but I’m pretty excited and scared as a muthah. The next 2 months is gonna be a doozy…

Good bye, friends!

Good bye, free time!

Good bye, Thursday-Sudachi-sake-bomb-and-90s-night! #sigh

Hello, hard work!

Hello, hustle grind!

Hello, adventure (see what I did there? ;))!

That is all I can disclose at ATM. Which is basically a whole lot of nothing. Haha! My bad for being so cryptic/short. Let’s just hope errything falls into place and if it doesn’t…

Well. It’s all about the journey right? Not the destination?

Life is a journey,
Not a destination,
There are no mistakes,
Just chances we’ve taken
Lay down your regrets cause all we have is now

…sometimes you feel like you’ve got something to prove
Remind yourself that there’s only one you
Just take a moment to give thanks of who you are.

LEGGO! ❤

Thought Stream

It’s been a while, but I fiiiiiinally made it to the Richmond to kick it with BMac this past weekend. We decided to pick up some dim sum Saturday morning, but before heading back to his place to devour the glory that is fried taro puffs and dumplings, we decided to pick up some instant Vietnamese coffee packets (crack-in-a-cup) from the local Asian mart.

While he was in line to pay, I wandered over to the Asian bread section…

 

Thought Stream:

Oooooh! Hawaiian Sweet Bread!

Bread from Hawaii. 

Hawaii.

Do I want to go back to Hawaii? 

I wonder how much flights are…

 

Yeeeeaaaaa…

I think I may have a problem…(no I don’t. I’m awesome).

The District Sleeps Alone Tonight

Sooooo I moved out of the Mish to Russian Hill with a friend from college. It’s been about a month at the new crib and mayhaps I’ll explain more about this later, but for now…peep them pictures. Kthnxbye!

Starting Anew

Oh. So if you didn’t know…I moved to San Francisco this past mid-March. After months of debating whether I should/should not make the move and having many friends push me towards “the right” direction…I finally pulled the trigger, packed up my belongings, and moved to the Mission.

It’s only been a few months and so much has happened already! Now that I got all my traveling (for now) out of the way, I’ll be staying local and will most likely have a few stories to tell as I explore this beautiful gem of a city.

Also, I’m planning on being better at this blogging thing. As busy as I am on the reg. I need want to share my thoughts, experiences, adventures and most importantly…misadventures in my new home, “The City.”

I’ve been in crazy busy bee mode for the past few days weeks months year and many friends and family have asked me what I’ve been up to and what’s going on with my life. With so many events to plan, projects to design, new places to explore, destinations to uncover…this might just be the most efficient (though less personal) way of sharing.

So here goes nothing, SF. Please be kind.

And let’s hope I can make it past 2 posts this year. (haaaah)

“I’m always out there thinking maybe
Could this be a big mistake?
Have I made the wrong decision?
Is this the right road to take?”

“And I feel the fire burning deep within my soul,
Struggling for protection,
When I reach it, let me know!
And I feel I need some guidance,
But my heart won’t let it show,
And although the road is frightening,
I’m gonna make it on my own!”
