Sooooo I haven't written for a while, just thought I'd say what's up to everyone and let you all know I'm still alive. I started college Jan 3, just finished the winter semester last week and started the spring one on v-day. I'm getting nothing but A's and B's, for the first time in my life, woohoo! College is so much better [and different] than high school, what a breath of fresh air! Can't say the people are THAT much different, since it is community college after all, but still they're there because they want to be and not because they have to be. The first time I walked into a restroom I was so shocked!! NO GRAFFITI!!!!! And the bathrooms are CLEAN! And have toilet seat covers and soap and paper towels and a hand dryer and warm water and and and... it's a dream come true, haha. Everyone's really mature and doesn't care about you, really. It's cool not to have unwanted attention. I also try not to wear my "metal" clothes too often for that same reason. I just want to go there, do my work, and learn, not make a statement. Maybe this means I have finally began to grow up??? Like there's this gothic girl at school with all these tattoos and billion piercings and freaky concact lenses and globs of bright make up on and I just have to stop and admire her, but at the same time wonder why? What's the point of spending 2 hours in the bathroom making yourself look like an alien when you're going to school? I mean I'd understand if you were going out to some club or concert, or having a show, but why at school? It's kinda pointless, unless you really want attention THAT badly... right? I don't know, I guess it's not my place to judge others, but I just wouldn't do it personally. I made some cool friends, too, like Irene and Anthony. And of course I made some friends I wish I hadn't, but that's another long story, which I won't bother to explain since it's nothing but headaches.
Other than school, I've been playing guitar as much as humanly possible!! I try to squeeze in any free time I have. I think I've been improving a lot, but I can't really tell since no one says anything. All I know is I've been writing a lot of new music lately. Next week I'm going to meet up with this really good drummer so maybe I can get my side project going, I really hope it works out since the last guitarist I was supposed to jam with flaked on me!! Wish me luck peeps.
Also, my band GRIMOIRE has a song and pictures up at www.myspace.com/grimoireband so please check that out when/if you have the chance!! Anyhow, that's it for now, meanwhile enjoy the new pics.

I've decided to take more pics of myself and the people/things in my life because I don't do that enough. I think it's fun and everyone should do it, to remind yourself of good times and such.
