Change of Plans and Life is Happening.

This is partially taken from my entry on Tumblr but since I can do more on this blog than on Tumblr, I'll be able to show what happened more descriptively. I also love Twitter and I think this is so cool to incorporate my tweets into my entry (lol).

Sooooooooooo if you've known me for quite a while, then you know how long I’ve been wanting to get a dog and I had my eyes set on a Samoyed. I was in talks with a breeder around March and it turned out that the odds weren’t in my favor. Most recently, I stated this in a YouTube video. I wasn’t updated with an email and found out the pup went to someone else via the breeder’s website. I was just going to wait for the next litter (which she previously informed me would be next year and I replied saying that I’d be willing to wait) and my mindset after finding out was just to wait and keep checking up on the other breeders I’ve bookmarked and the American Kennel Club website. This was early last month.
Last week, I was on my way to the park one night to go on my usual run and I saw a black dog run across the street, so I minded my own business and just kept walking. The dog suddenly popped up right beside me, stared at me with its mouth open, tail wagging, and the expression “HUMAN!! PLAY WITH MEEE!!”. It was kind of scary because it was around 9pm and the dog was a frickin’ big black Labrador but I just did some grabby hand motions and let it smell my arm and proceeded to continue my walk to the park. I was pretty sure I knew which house it came from and hoped it’d just stay within the general radius of the home, BUT it followed me. It was like a shadow blob kept zooming in front of me and I practically walked it without a leash for three blocks before someone else came towards me with a baby stroller and a guitar strapped across his chest. I made this ugly “he’s not mine face” and I guess he took him.
I didn’t turn around to really see what happened because I was so selfishly relieved that I could go run without worrying that other people would think it was mine. Afterwards, I felt pretty guilty about not taking it in and how I could’ve possibly returned it or adopting it as my own after having it checked for a microchip at a nearby humane society, so I was curious to see whether or not Labrador pups were abundant compared to Samoyeds and I could possibly do right by just raising one instead of a Samoyed.

How Do They Do It?

I think I'm a pretty good at managing my time. I've allocated time to do this, this, this and that, yet there's still never enough hours in a day. Well, I believe partially it's because I really dislike seeing clips of myself, so I'm always deterring myself from editing videos. This shows how insecure I am, even if I try to keep my composure. I am, however, getting more into the nooks and crannies of Sony Vegas, so my videos are getting better. I mean, if I enjoy seeing the final outcome, then surely everyone else does. But then again, maybe I'm just giving myself too much credit. It's good to be critical too, right? Oh my god, what is going on.
Well anyway, apart from working part-time with the children, trying to get a super hot body by age thirty, and figuring out to do with myself from here on out, I'm wondering how other (video) bloggers do it. School's officially done with. I passed my last remaining classes with above average grades. My joke of a class which was meant to be taken when I just transferred I got a B+ in and to my surprise, I got an A- in my "Global Politics/Issues" class. I received a C from the same professor in a previous class. I was aiming for a B and wasn't expecting an A-. Shows how much group work and class participation can affect your grade *heh*. That class was so much easier though. I mean, MEXICAN POLITICS vs. GLOBAL ISSUES?! I knew NOTHING about Mexico's (political) history nor anything about their presidents (past and present). But to get a high mark from such a critical professor who also teaches grad students, I feel so accomplished in the fact that I redeemed myself to her. *breathes out a sigh of relief* I really admire her because she's like incredibly knowledgeable and well-read, so it really is a big deal to me. Now I just wait for my graduation application to process and I'll have a diploma in my hands via the postal service. I didn't register to attend a graduation ceremony though which is sort of a bummer, but not really. I know if my parents had to work, then the money would be more important than just sitting out in the sun and watching a group of students symbolically officiate the completion of their college life. However, the tricky part is now that I'm free with what I've been taught (which has no real application to the real world besides having learned and realized how stupid people are), how to utilize my knowledge learned both alone and in school to succeed. 

Vaguely, my plan right now is to improve upon this blog and my YouTube channel. That way, my income could grow a bit and I'll have something a bit more resume worthy. I'm trying to get into working in the media or web based media, more specifically. I know companies like AOL and Yahoo! are pooling more money into creating content with actual ads opposed to banners and advertisement space, so I think it's a good sector to try and get into. I have no other real talent anyway...-shifty eyes-. I just know lots of stuff in the news. I really love comic book movies, animals, and food. Furthermore, I bust my balls exercising because I want the kind of body I always see, yet don't have. WHAT ELSE AM I GOOD AT?
