More on going to college…

So I picked my classes that I plan to take in Acc College this fall. The courses I may be taking are: “Reading, Writing Workshop A”, “Creative Writing: Drama, Poetry and Fiction”, and “Small Business Management”.

The college thing is really happening this fall and I’m getting excited. This is something I should have done a long time ago after I graduated high school.

The reason I’m taking those writing courses is beacuse like I said before, I am taking fiction writing again seriously and want to get better at it. I’m also taking the “Small Business Management” course, because I hope to own my own small business in the future.

I want to own my own store in Greenwich that sells a variety of stuff from books, music CD’s, video games, DVDs/Blu Ray discs, etc. I want to have live music in that store too of course probably starting off with open mic shows.

As far as working my job goes, I’m going to have to work my job part time in the fall ’cause I can’t do both college and work full time. I’d rather do college full time instead of work, so for work, I’ll go back to part time. I’ll need more free time to study for tests and exams and stuff.

Sometime soon before the fall, I need to go to Acc College to get registered and sign up for the classes I want to take. I’ll probably start going back to school when I get back home from my San Diego vacation.

As far as my San Diego vacation goes, I’m really looking forward to that as well. We’re definitely gonna go to the famous “San Diego Zoo” and they do allow cameras there, so I’ll take a bunch of pics at the Zoo. I’ll probably do other things besides the Zoo of course, like going to the beaches, doing some shopping in downtown San Diego, going to the bars/clubs for a few drinks, eat at some expensive restaurants probably, sight seeing in San Diego, etc. Whatever we can think of.

My brother and his girlfriend lives in downtown San Diego, directily in the city, just a couple of blocks from the beach. Can’t wait to get out of New York for a week, I haven’t been on vacation in a long long time. The last vacation I went on was at Martha’s Vineyard island, in Mass and that was a couple of years ago.

You’re never too old to go back to school…

If you’re sick and tired of working shitty and crappy minimum waged jobs, go back to school and get a college education for a better career! That’s what I’m doing this fall. I think the college thing is definitely happening and I’m going to Acc College pretty soon to sign up and get registered.

I’m still aiming to take a writing/English course. I’ve taken fictional story writing seriously again and to hopefully become a profesional author in the future. My dream has always been to publish my own novel to bookstores, that was my first dream before music.

I don’t think I’m ever gonna “make it” in the music business, but I would like to “make it” in the book writing industry. I could be like Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Dan Brown, John Grisham and all those greats. I got good grades in English in High School, and I used to read aloud my short stories in English class all the time. Back in my high school years, I’ve written mostly vampire stories and serial killer stories. I’m a huge fan of vampires, I like reading vampire novels and watching vampire flicks. It is unique storytelling and insightful.

I will be taking more than one courses other than writing which is what I’m definitely taking, possibly a computer course or a business course, don’t know yet. But I will decide soon.

Life is short, you don’t want to live your life working shitty jobs. Make a good career of yourself so you can live something huge before you get too old. Looking forward to college this year.

Being obsessed with drinking…

I don’t get drunk anymore. I stopped a long time ago. I still enjoy having a few drinks once in a while, but I don’t get drunk. I don’t see how people are obsessed with drinking. Pretty much, there’s a lot of people out there that pretty much all they do is drink beer or whatever kind of alcohol they can get their hands on. Some people drink alone, but most like to form a group of friends to party with a community. It’s a fact that there are alcoholics all over the place. Especially my home town of Greenwich. It makes you wonder why the Old Station Inn bar and the Thruway Beverages are pretty popular here in this small town.

I like to drink a few beers ’cause I enjoy the taste of beer, I don’t drink it to get wasted and have a good time, I drink it because I like the taste. The only time I’ll have a few drinks is when I’m out at a bar room gig, when I get invited to a party or partying with my brother and his friends.

I used to get drunk sometimes in the past, but I either get sick or pass out these days. But come on people, there is more life than just drinking alcohol. Nothing wrong with getting drunk and plastered once in a while, but doing it all the time is suicide. There is nothing cool about drinking in a shithole bar in your hometown. NOTHING cool about it!

While it is pretty fun to go to a bar, to meet new people and meet new friends, still though there is a lot of whacked and messed up people that go to bars. This is why I’m not much of a bar hopper. I very much stay away from them. The only time that I’ll go to a bar is when my cousin’s band, Sauce is playing at one or if I’m playing a gig at one. I will not go to a bar room just for the sake of drinking.

Yes, I do meet and run into some cool and down to earth peeps at bar rooms, but when I run into some whacko that won’t shut his mouth makes me want to leave the place. You can enjoy life without alcohol. If you think illegal drugs are destroying people’s lives, alcohol can do it easily too. There are many important things in life and better things to do than drinking. Save your money on more important things.

Sure, I buy a lot of entertainment stuff like music CD’s, movies on DVD, and videogames and shit like that, but hey, buying that stuff is much better than wasting it on drugs or alcohol. You want to have a good life and be a good person, then do something about it. There’s nothing “cool” and nothing “special” about getting wasted. I don’t know why so many people think it is.

Happy 4th of July.

More on my San Diego vacation…

I’ve been doing online research for fun things to do in San Diego when I go down there. And one thing that immediately sparked my interest, I want to check out the San Diego zoo…

http://www.sandiegozoo.org/

That zoo is said to be the best zoo in America. And best of all the tickets to get in that zoo aren’t too expensive either, it’s $34.00 to get in for a day which is a great price. That zoo has almost every animal you can think of around the world. It’s why I’m dying to check it out. I want to see a real live lion, tiger, crocodiles, bears, giraffes, kangaroos, etc.

We’ll probably go to it. If that zoo allows digital cameras, I’ll take pics.

Getting stoked for my San Diego vacation!

I’m getting real stoked for my San Diego vacation. Getting real excited and pumped. It’ll be my first big airplane vacation ever. So while I’m on that 13 hour flight, I’ll probably bring a book to read or play my PSP Sony handheld while I’m riding the big plane.

I’ve been doing online research in San Diego, California to see what fun things to do in that city and there are plenty to do, you’ll never be bored down in San Diego, and always be spending money down there. I’m going to be there for only one full week from Aug. 21 – 27, so I probably won’t be blogging at all during that time.

I won’t be going to the trip alone. I will be going to the trip with my mother. I could go alone if I wanted to, I actually was going to go alone but then I thought to myself, I’m afraid I won’t understand how the airport systems works, and I’m afraid I’ll get lost and stuck there or worse lose my luggage at the airport. My sister and her boyfriend were gonna go with me instead before but they couldn’t because of their work jobs here. This is why I asked my mother to go with me instead.

I’ve decided I’m not gonna bring my videocamera with me, I’m gonna leave that home, ’cause I’m worried if something might happen to it. It might get stolen or I might forget it and leave it at someplace by accident. So I’m going to bring my regular digital camera to take a bunch of pictures of the trip for my blog instead.

What will I do for fun stuff while I’m in San Diego, C.A.? Probably hang at the beaches, do some shopping at the shops in town, drink at the bars/nightclubs maybe (’cause I know my bro and his friends are gonna wanna do that anyways) or whatever else we can think of, maybe go deep sea fishing and do some whale watching too.

Anyway, it’s gonna be a blast and can’t wait. Since I’m there for a full week might as well do as much fun stuff as I can while it lasts. It’s only one quick week. I got my flight booked and confirmed for Aug. 21st. I should arrive in San Diego at 10:30 at night. It’ll be a long plane ride but it’ll be worth it. My brother’s been trying to get me out there for a long time and it’s actually happening finally.
