The Scheduled Summer

Normally during the summer months I don't spend to much time planning exactly what it is I'm going to do. But this summer has proved to be much different. From the start it was hectic with classes, working and moving. I thought after I got back to New York for the remaining months I would just veg out, play some video games, or do whatever else I felt at the time. That didn't really happen. Since I decided I wanted that new (expensive) computer I have been doing much else then work since I got back.

10-5 every day punching in tax reduction information into a computer (what a blast). It pays well for work that's not so difficult but goddamn is it time consuming. I still have to worry about paying the bills for my house every month (something I'm so not used to). On top of that I have to make a new Name Game every other week. The good news is that I finally figured out a system on how to pace it. While this paces out the process so that it doesn't have to be done in one unbearable sitting, it does cause the issue of filling up my free time. I guess discipline is a good thing.. It just kinda sucks when you're suppose to be on vacation.

I'm also still looking for a figure drawing class to take for a little bit while I'm still home. I found one place that's cheap and once a week but I still gotta look into it more. Something else I was bummed about was I didn't get the chance to work on my Portal gun for my Halloween costume like I planned.

On a bright side though, I have been able to play some of the games I've been meaning to catch up on... I just hope I get through most of them before school starts again. It doesn't help that I lost all my save files on my PS3 when I got my new one.. saaaad times.

Even though this summer is proving to be more busy than relaxing, I have to say it is by far one of the best one's I've had in a while. Last summer was a bit of a let down and sad for the most part. This summer I feel like even though I'm constantly busy, it's a good busy. I'm constantly being challenged creatively and I'm also spending a lot of free time with close friends. I've had some awesome experiences in some really cool places. I wouldn't change a thing about it. What I find really cool is how it's got my mind thinking.. I find myself with some really awesome new interests and ideas that I haven't paid much attention to before...

...One of them being Travel. Frankly I've had enough of the US.

Preview of what's to come in the Name Game #7. Kinda like what goes through my head every once in a while...


  1. 1. this is soooooo hard to read with the black and white contrast :p
    2. It's open every day, with multiple classes, and is pretty damn cheap for the hours of figure drawing ($15 for 3-4 hours). Only thing is that it's in a basement by a subway station.

  2. Assuming your escaptist profile is accurate, Happy Birthday! I hope all your birthday wishes come true and thank you for providing a little slice of comedy gold every other week.
