Funny how my paid DA account and Flickr account both expired around the same time. This probably means I'll have to stop posting at both places once this project is over, or at least wait until I can afford to pay for a subscription. I forgot how wonderful it is to have paid accounts for things. Now all I see are ads, ads, and more ads. Shit is slower than ever before. This sucks.

This month has sucked. I hope the new year will be much better for me. I'm anticipating the days until the countdown. I felt that 2010 was a good year, but it left me wanting something more. My horoscope tells me that I should take the risk that I've been wanting to take and to move to another city, state, or even country. It's ironic how my horoscope knew that I was itching for that big move. I guess it's time to make that change. The stars are all lined up for me...

Had a pretty crazy night last night. Lots of singing, drunkenness, and playing guitar. My fingers are still bloodied. You can probably imagine how I felt this morning at work after a crazy night, but it was all good. I woke up fairly early, took a shower, which felt amazing, and I walked to work while also stopping to pick up breakfast. It was quite a beautiful day. This week in Chicago has been pretty amazing weather-wise. I have the weekend off, surprisingly. I want to go out and have fun, but I also know I should save up some money. So many decisions...

I sometimes wonder where I will go after this lease is up. I would like to travel, but that may require me to quit my job. I can't imagine being jobless ever. I've been working for 5 years. It's all I've known. I've definitely held out on so many things because of it and I hate it for that reason.

I've been looking for some temp jobs and jobs that don't expect me to come into an office everyday. I've found a few freelance photo jobs, but who even knows if they're interested in my work. I've thought about serving jobs, but then they usually require experience. I hate that. How am I supposed to do any job if they want prior experience? Isn't that the reason why you get a job anyway? To learn and grow from that job? I feel like people are too quick to write others off. I once applied for a photo job that would have consisted of me taking photos of hotels and people who rent our their condos for those who are traveling. They shot me down because I don't have experience with shooting interior architecture or whatever bullshit reason they gave. I don't need experience when I feel like I've already mastered composition and lighting. But...I suppose this is the way the world works.

I've cooled off a bit since these happenings. Karma will be on my side with this one. Ain't it great? Today I spent time backcombing my hair, I can already see the dreads forming. It's quite an exciting feeling. I feel like this is a new beginning, a journey. Of course, I suppose it's hard to tell from a photo.

I wish it was Friday already, at 6pm to be exact, when I get out of work. I'll head to the House of Blues and get my groove on to Sound Tribe Sector 9 and Bassnectar! Ahhh. Oh, and I'll be doing the same thing on Saturday.

I'm also very very happy to announce that I will have my very own solo exhibition next month! I'm sure a lot of work and detail is going to be involved, which means that I should probably jump on things right about....now. I'll give you all the details later when I know more.

I have to leave for work in about 30 minutes. After work, I'm officially on vacation. I can't wait.

Tonight is also the full moon drum circle, which I'm really looking forward to. I always enjoy these kind of nights. I have a feeling that something will happen afterwards. I have 2 birthdays to celebrate! Can seven o'clock come any sooner? Please?

I really had planned on going out tonight. Of course, this is my first night in a while where I don't have to go into work the next day...and everyone seems to be busy or out doing something. Why am I not out there?

I got my schedule for next week, and I'm working every single day. Everyday. Monday through Sunday. I can already tell that things probably won't fare over so well. I'm not a happy camper when I don't have at least one day off to sleep in and relax. Apparently they seem to think I don't have a life.

We watched The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus after making dinner. Can I say...that was the most bizarre movie I have seen in a while. I thought Heath Ledger did really well in it, and it was surprise after surprise when it came to the characters. It was eccentric and wild and imaginative. It's probably one of those types of movies where I can only watch it once. It was too much of a mind fuck. The artwork was magnificent though, and very beautiful.

My friend Jayne is supposed to be coming over around 1am. I don't know why. I thought she was going to stay over at CiCi's. So I guess I will have to stay up until then so I don't miss her call. Must stay awake, must stay awake...

If you could give me some recommendations for any new music, I would really appreciate it. I've made it my goal to discover new acts every week. I need more music in my life.

Is anyone going to Lollapalooza? I'm definitely going. I'm not sure how I will pay for it. I think I may volunteer so I can get in for free and get a sweet t-shirt.

Lady GaGa is headlining! Ahhhh.

I can't believe it's the end of the month already. Where did the time go? April 1st means it's getting closer to Spring, and it also means the day to pay rent and the internet bill and electric bill.

I have a number of things to do today. First off, I have to take money out for the above mentioned and also do some laundry, hand in these Trader Joe's applications, and go to work later.

CiCi is moving out April 1st with her boyfriend. They'll only be about 15 minute walk away or so. It'll be nice to have a familiar face on the north side.

I still need to make new friends.
