I made a promise to a friend today to never be content with any situation or experience. we also promised each other to continue to always be tourists in our own city. the brooklyn bridge gave us that. thompson park however gave me a different revelation. tired from a long venture (maybe an hour FYI) i saw a line of about 60 homeless people waiting to be given MAYBE an onion or various canned goods. and right then and there i was grateful. YES...... i know there are people less fortunate than myself. YES...... i know people lose loved ones everyday. and YES..... i have a great life. BUT seeing that picture made me TRY to promise myself that life will go on and that i am one fortunate BITCH. human nature is to self reflect when things go bad or when you see others with less. but i will try my hardest to remind myself each day of that.

lately i've been drawn to the following things. fascinated with elephants and their texture. jewel toned green makes me jump up for joy. building sketches intrigue me. the weaving of friendship bracelets make my heart thump. legos and blocks shaped into anything make me smile. and well the black dude is just just cool taken from http://thesartorialist.blogspot.com/

Tonight was epic on soooo many levels. No i didn't find the cure for cancer nor did I save a woman from a raging fire. All a friend and I realized was the true meaning of happiness. yes i said happiness. Its merely allowing yourself to NOT be "normal' and letting others live and breathe their own lives. I've come a long way in these short 25 years of living but i expect to never be the same person i was the day before. because in reality who am i to tell you what to believe in or who to love. who am i to question where the fuck you've been for the past 3 days. who am i to relinquish my pain and anger on you. who am i to try to make you into the person i 'think' you should be.
in actuality who i am is john. and please trust me when i say i will never be your everyday vanilla milkshake. im the fucked up, twisted mess with gummy bears, granola bars, chocolate, caramel, and oreos in between (thanks bre). one which looks utterly disgusting at first but at least wakes you the fuck up. i will love like no one else has loved and fight like no one else has fought. but i will never apologize for who i am nor do so for my friends. WE are who were meant to be. free individuals who will make fun of you for not being true to yourself.

soooo guess who found an apt??? *raises hand* I am ohhh so happy to say I am now an East Village resident! home of the hippies/ppl who graduated but don't want to get a job/hipsters/cheap NYU students/ j. Cas! since I will be living in a matchbox my organization skills will be on full blast. no room for destruction here! i know im a grown up but IKEA still has my heart like a fat kid at thanksgiving dinner. so in a nutshell things about my place: my mom would disapprove, its small, no actual full size fridge, BUT its cute, affordable and I love it! Hasta luego amigos!
sooo i know i promised my family, friends, and who ever cares to know about my life a weekly update. Needless to say that hasn't happened, since Macy's.com has been consuming my life.... ohhh that thing we call a career. Anyway while my eldest sister came to visit I took her, my really good friend Kiara and of course my lil bre bre to Coney Island! Overall i came to the conclusion i wanted more fatty tasty foods..... but can we talllkkkkkkk about the deep fried oreos OMGEEEEEE. And Coney island can we tallllkkkk about those ads you have on the subway about the "new" coney island...... it painted a picture that is not TRUE! but time spent with the ppl i love trumps over everthaaaaang except those DEEP FRIED OREOS. pure heaven!!

i like a lot of things and i share a lot of things. This is now my personal space where i can do both. i recently moved to NYC, home where dreams are made of blah blah blah. I'll try my best to take my family (only ppl who will read this) and friends (actually subscribe) on my first year journey. I'll also take lotssss of pics with my new cool hipster camera and have personal bios of my very cool friends and where their SHOES have taken them! Hold on to your panty liners kidds because it's gonna be a bumpy ride.
