I cut off all my hair.

I went in to get my haircut today, and as I sat in the chair the lady asked me 2 questions. 1. It's been a while since you got your haircut, huh? and 2. Who did your highlights? I had to laugh at the second question. I explained that I dyed my entire...

Go America.

I've been watching the news for the past few minutes, and of course they're describing the attacks on Afghanistan. All I have to say is "GO USA!" They showed some footage of "protestors" in Afghanistan. They looked so sad and tired and defeated. I almost...

It's official.

I am now a freelance illustrator. Before, I was just a freelance multimedia designer. But not anymore. Now I'm a freelance illustrator. I got a job drawing "gag gifts", like whoopie coushins and shock buzzers and stuff. I'm sure all guys will remember...

Computer fixed, because I am a genius.

You heard me. Before this blasted thing was crashing every time I tried to do anything even slightly processor intensive. With a freelancing job, pretty much everything I do is processor intensive. I figured it was an overheating problem so I went in...

happy birthday to me.

So, I went out last night. It was Angie's 21st birthday, so she was having a party. Fabish and I picked up the keg and headed over there and visited with Angie's roommates and family until Angie finally got home. She wasn't surprised at all. I thought that...

So I ended

So, I ended up taking Abby on a walk with my new shoes on. It was a long walk, and now I have 2 huge broken blisters on the back of each foot. They really hurt. I haven't put on a pair of shoes since. I walk around with Fabish's sandals now when I need to...

This thing is

This thing is getting harder and harder to update. So, Thursday night. Fabish's friend was having a kegger for her 21st, so I went. At midnight we went to the bars, but since me, Fabish, and KJ are poor we stayed at the one with dollar drafts. I drank a...

I haven't done

I haven't done much today, basically because I can't even think of anything to do. I've given my information out to everyone I know, and now it's just sort of a waiting game. This part sucks, especially since I've been out of money for so long and I'm...

Oh man oh

Oh man, oh man, oh man. Day 3 of driving around dropping off my demo reel at places. I have 1 reel left, and no where else in Peoria to visit. So, as I was dropping off my 3rd reel today, it dawned on me. I have become the guy I laughed at while working...

Day 2 of

Day 2 of driving around dropping off my demo reel to anyone that would watch. Today was better than yesterday in some respects, worse in others. The better parts: I dropped off 4 demo reels, leaving only 3 or 4 left to get rid of. 2 people expressed...

What a craptastic day.

Well, I got my demo reel all ready to go. I spent a few hours at Kinko's, my favorite place on Earth and a former employer, printing out business cards, my new resume, and labels for my demo reel and box. That took much longer than expected, so it was 3:00...

Last night was

Last night was supposed to be dinner out with the boys. Unfortunately, some people got sick and others, like Fabish, just decided they didn't want to go. I ended up going to Hooters with Mullens and Angie. It was the first time we'd been out together since...

Last night was

Last night was $1 drafts at Gorman's. Since Fabish owed me for several things due to the repair of his car, loaning him mine in the interim, etc., he treated me to a night out. It was fun. We grabbed a few seats at the bar, which was nice, but limited the...

Fuller and Callahan

Fuller and Callahan stopped by last night. Ever since Fuller moved to Champaign, I've been seeing more of him. Strange how that works, eh? Anyway, we went drunken bowling. Well, not really drunken, since it requires at least 3 games to get drunk and we...

Better and better

Better and better, and better still. Everything's coming up Wasson. I did the rush job for Iona. 8 hours later, I'm $350 richer. Not too shabby if you ask me. If all goes well, I'll have some cash by the end of the week. I'll have made in 2 weeks about...

The amazing turn around.

Well, I was extremely productive today. I mailed out a demo reel to a guy in Beverly Hills about producing a national commercial. I doubt I'll get the job (I bid $6000 on it), but I feel accomplised that he liked my portfolio enough to ask for my reel. I...

This just in:

This just in: Alkaline Trio is a fantastic band. "When was it that you sold your life or wasted, Every bite of that small slice you never tasted? I guess I should be one to talk. There's times when I can't even walk. There's days I couldn't give a...

Things are just

Things are just downright frustrating right now. I went into this whole freelancing thing, fully aware that it would be a slow start and take a while before I started making as much as I was making at Iona. However, now that I'm 2 weeks into it, I'm not...

My long day.

My long day. I did a lot of work today. I made a lot of phone calls, and I went to this one guy's house to take pictures for this Quicktime VR thing I have to do for work. I accidently left my camera there, and boy am row and see if I can get it. Stupid,...

So I applied

So I applied to work at Circuit City yesterday. I had forgotten how long and stupid those trivial job applications are. Honestly, I could take or leave the job. I don't care. It's just a way to get out of the apartment sometimes. I had to fill out a huge...
