This was a day that calls for an entry. I always have the best time with my friend Cherm. We were going to see a show in Seattle tonight, but before hand we stopped by REI to look at or buy a pack for Cherm's Europe trip. That was the best part of the whole night. I didn't want to leave. The guy who was helping her was so nice and whatta cutie! His name tag read "Drew". He had gorgeous eyes. A soft gentle blue. He was funny and talkative and super helpful. He really knows his stuff. I was disappointed that I wasn't buying a pack. Once I have a job though, I'm getting me one. It's gonna be like my short story. The guy keeps going to the store buying things he doesn't need just so he can talk to the girl. Course this would be the other way around. I wonder where he likes to go hiking? ...

brad and danny

Yesterday, I came across the web sites of two very talented guys. Brad and Danny. You can find them at or They are very talented with video editing and are stupendously creative! It would be way cool to work with them. Although they have many ideas, I do believe they could use a new camera operator. They are in need of someone who knows the Rule of Thirds when shooting with a camera. Anyway, check out their site anyway for some entertaining music videos. I have been inspired to get out there and have some fun! Thanks fellas!

Guess it's been a while. No, I haven't conquered the world yet. I have no job and thus no money, so I spend my days at home doing not much. Great way to meet people, huh? I think I have a health problem. Or maybe it's just in my mind. I'm always tired. Like today I got up before nine, got ready for the day, then starting writing a story around 10 and around 20 minutes later I fell asleep. I woke up 3 HOURS LATER! After having at least 8 hours of sleep the night before, that's a bit insane, don't you think? Even right now, if I laid down I could fall asleep. This fatigue thing makes it difficult to do much more than watch t.v. or click around on my computer. Sometimes I find enough strength to get up to eat. Sometimes. I think things will get better once I'm in school.

the 4th

"Today, we celebrate our Independence Day." Best Independence Day speech ever was from the movie INDEPENDENCE DAY with Bill Pullman playing the role of the President. He gave a speech right before our boys were to go to the front lines. It was so wonderful that I can only hope every speech a hero hears before he goes out to war can be as memorable. If you haven't seen the film, I urge you to. It also stars Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum, if that makes you want to see it any more.

I have discovered that the act of writing isn't so easy. Storytelling, however, is explosive! You come up with a character, you put him or her in a situation, and then you just let the story tell it's self. Then, as the writer, I go back later and trim out any unecessary detours so to keep the reader focused on what's important. There are other ways to create a story, though the same strength of all stories are the characters. The reason being? People read stories. Thus, we relate to character the best. Even if that character is a dog. That dog will inevitatably be given a human likeness. Some part of who he is that we can hold on to as we follow him in his adventure, or lack there of. I've found that putting together the facets of the human condition is as about as difficult as a ten year old's puzzle.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it's easy. I'm saying that it gets easier as we grow and discover the life around us. There's an age at which we will understand it perfectly, like it was made just for us, then we will move on and forget all about even tinkering with that puzzle because we've already figured it out. What's the point, right? That's where we've gone wrong. It is at this point in our lives that we should re-evaluate that puzzle. Take it apart and put it back together again. For it's not in the completing of the puzzle that we discover the human condition, it is in the process of putting each piece in it's place that we discover who we are.
