"Where you are right now is a collective sum of all your past decisions."
-From one of the wisest men I know.
I don’t believe that there is ONLY one person out there for every one of us. I’ve loved and have fallen in love plenty of times, some spoken and unspoken, some pursued and others not.
But I’ve loved, and will continue to fall in love with those who can tug this guarded heart.
Seasons change and so do I, and whoever I am at the time won’t necessarily love the same person I loved seasons ago.
This thought may get me in trouble in future relationships, but I am crossing my fingers in hopes that a few will understand along the way.
As for those who do understand and tag along for the ride, I will love the living hell out of you as long as time and fate permits me.
This is a ramble that won’t make sense to me in the morning.
Probably the greatest, comprehensive analysis on one of the most important film makers in animation gone too soon, and my direct influence in storyboard/visual storytelling in animation, the late great Kon Satoshi.
Rest in Power, Kon-san!
Don’t run to the arms of safety.
Live more than just a little.
Meet the person in the mirror you stare at every morning and get to know them. It will become one of your strongest, and toughest relationships throughout your years.
Be willing to be heartbroken, but don’t anticipate it.
Let your heart live without haste and you would have traveled a new world by the end of your adventure.
And even then, your adventure will never end, unless you allow it.
- Thoughts while counting in my 14th hour in the office today.
"Her silence roared with such mystery, a siren’s song to my foreign heart."
Sitting with the senior creatives and chatting about our past with anime and video games on this Thursday morning.
I don’t think I’ve nerded out about Final Fantasy in a couple of years…
Sorry not sorry y’all.
I love this place.
Pappy Van Winkle 23.
Eat (drink) your heart out.
Things I’ve found out tonight.
I’m never comfortable being praised.
It’s the strangest, most foreign feeling and concept for me to ever recieve.
It leaves me uneasy, odd, and thrown off.
Wine is a beautiful thing.
Drunk, and yet not full.
Today I acknowledge that I owe so much to this city and to all the people I’ve surrounded me since I’ve moved here.
Today I came back from lunch only to hear that my comps for a new client were chosen. For it to be my first ever packaging client and my work being presented amongst comps by the senior designers…I am beyond happy.
This week I’ve also made the decision to take a week long hiking and camping trip in order to hike my first 14er on my 21st birthday. I can drink any other time of my life, but I’m not going to pass up remote camping and hiking in the San Juans.
I’m awestruck with this state.
It’s making it harder for me to cope with the reality that in three weeks I’ll have to pack up and leave back to Texas.
