my disappointing night in san francisco.
of course, yes all of us sf natives have been there, at least i hope some agree… in search of some real inspiration on an evening of debauchery which has lead to, well, disappointment. without a single thought we all know the disappointment comes from nothing but high intellectual standards in this town. you can meet a some bright young lad who has the thoughtful ability to play the original...
“I value the friend who for me finds time on his calendar, but I cherish the friend who for me does not consult his calendar.” -Robert Brault (image ‘the siesta’ by van gogh)
feet connecting to pedal you feel like you’ve grown new limbs. an extension of your body almost like those anime characters who put themselves inside robot bodies. when you’re leaned all the way forward, feeling the wind in your face the curve of the metal handle bars almost creates this modern glass shelter for you to see into the distance. this moment in time you forget...
A Time article from a few years back. I can relate. “Jeffrey Arnett, a developmental psychologist at the University of Maryland, favors “emerging adulthood” to describe this new demographic group, and the term is the title of his new book on the subject. His theme is that the twixters are misunderstood. It’s too easy to write them off as overgrown children, he...

“Something’s missing,” sings the great John Mayer on his album Heavier Things. It’s a song that more and more I continue to relate to. Back a few years ago, I was a fan of the track but more so because I loved the melodies and passion in it. Things have changed in my more recent years. I feel I now know exactly what he’s talking about. I don’t have any...
on aging and death.
i read about 35 pages of ‘the picture of dorian gray’ this afternoon and an interesting theme came up - aging. aging. well, the thought of it hits close to my heart. i fear it immensely. just last month i experienced my grandfather pass away at 95. it’s touched my heart ever since and as weird and empty as i’ve felt lately, i think it’s due largely in part to the...
sometimes i wonder...
this year has been insane. i’m feeling exhausted from it all at the moment. it’s been my first year single since i was like 18 so i think that may have to do with it. for a while i found myself with the urge to go out, party, meet new people so i was constantly doing that…in doing that i did meet plenty of new friends, women, but i’m still unhappy. i find myself...
work is chill

hello san francisco
Wow…been over a year since i posted. anyhow i won’t even attempt to sum up what’s been going on for the past year but i will explain where i’m at right now. Just a couple months ago, I started a job at an advertising agency in San Francisco called, Eleven. So far it’s been pretty awesome, cool people, great company, great clients..etc. but along with the new job...

I’m about to embark on a 15 hour journey back to tha bay… I guess itll give me time to reflect on this trip. I plan to post little episodes and memoirs of some of the things that really stuck out to me…so if you are interested please do check back as...
Im at the oceanografico in valencia!!!
ive spent most of today in valencia. the city is absolutely gorgeous. but the first thing i wanted to do was step foot in the mediteranean. the day was not in any way hot or glamorous like that, but i still wanted to see the sea and feel the temperature. walking around after touching this sea, so full of history, my feet felt sort of tingly and happy to sense return to water. seven years ago...
Stairing at the mediteranean sea
Heading to Valencia
Voy para ver el mediteraneo, descansar y comer en la playa que me dicen tiene la mejor paella en el mundo! Ingles: heading out to valencia to see the mediteranean and eat some paella on the beach…..
that’s where i’ve fricking been for the last few days and let me tell you, it was exhausting. i literally worked from 08:00 to 24:00 monday, tuesday and wednesday, and i’m working today. the conference was pretttty boring but met a lot of cool startup companies. i also met a video team from spain that wants to keep in contact with me, which is pretty goddamn cool i think…i think that’s the best...
24 hours in madrid
so…im writing from a laptop of my cousins in which all the symbols are different, thus not allowing me to write any expressions except those which i type up…sigh. manuel lives about 45 minutes from madrid in a town called alcala. its where the author of don quixote was born…i believe his name is cervantes. i took a walk through the town and its pretty neat, very old feel. one...
Here we go…14 hours
this is kind of a stream of thoughts….i’m in my room ripping two of my favorite dvd’s so i can watch them on the plane on my iphone. miami vice and scarface - both highly entertaining movies. i’m pretty much packed and feeling slightly nervous - it’s going to be a long flight, leaving at 9am, sf time, arriving at 9am madrid time on an 14 hour flight. rose is...
