9th June, 2016. 6:38 pm. Just a few things
Ok. I need a new job. It's not that I don't like working for my current employer, but I can't really live on what they pay. I interviewed for another travel industry job today. I should be posting for more banking jobs too.

I am missing Gogol Bordello tonight because I can't afford the ticket. Like I said, I need a job that pays a living wage, not a starvation wage.
That's all for now.

4th June, 2016. 8:18 pm. I'm Still Alive 2016
Well, it's been a few years again. I'm not sure who is still on here, but say hello if you are. I need to stay in touch with people.
Ok. I am working for a hotel chain.
I am still doing photography. I still write about music a bit. I've recently traveled to New Orleans for Jazz Fest. I saw Dr John in Jacksonville. I took a road trip to Okeechobee because I'd never been there.
17th October, 2013. 2:56 am. I'm still Alive
I'm not sure who is still here. I've been gone for two years and just came back to see if things were still here. They are.
I'm still alive. I'm still in Tampa.
I'm looking for work again. Yay economy.
I'm doing more art shows. I had a Pussy Riot themed photo shown at the Art for Social Change show as part of ArtPrize in Grand Rapids, Michigan last month.
I'm far more active on Facebook these days.
I hope everyone is doing well.
4th September, 2011. 11:38 pm. Fear
One of the first things I can remember seeing on TV was footage of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge collapse on a show called You Asked For It. This is one of those scattered memories from before we moved into Grand Rapids, so I was less than 4 years old. I think this is why I've always has some degree of fear related to big bridges. It didn't help that when I moved to Tampa, it was at least a weekly occurance that there would be multi hour long back ups on the Howard Frankenstein Bridge. It was a two lane bridge with no breakdown lanes. Also in Tampa was the Sunshine Skyway. When I moved here, remaining span of the old Skyway was all that was up. The new Skyway was under construction and the other span had a gaping hole in it from where a tanker hit the bridge.
So, I'm afraid of big bridges.
I think I'll drive over the Sunshine Skyway tomorrow. I've been across as a passenger, but I've never driven the span.
3rd September, 2011. 10:39 am. Hello. I'm still alive
Hello to anyone reading this.
I've been away from LJ for a very long time. I'm not even sure who is around anymore.
I have been busy with work and photography. I helped put on an art show at Fetishcon this year. I went to Europe and did the running of the bulls in Pamplona. I opened a web store on fine art america for my prints.
Yeah, I'm still alive.

25th December, 2010. 3:35 am. A Wish
I wishing that love and happiness fill the world, or at least enough comes to chase away some of the pain and misery so many are consumed by. On Christmas eve... now morining, I reflect that there are many things I could be sad about. There is no point in dwelling on them now. I look toward the dawn without expectation, but with hope. I want to be loved and love in return. I want just enough to keep going.
Merry Christmas to everyone. May the new year be spectacular.
12th October, 2010. 12:27 am. Anxiety Dreams
I've been having anxiety dreams lately.
Last night, I had a dream that I was on a family trip. I was concerned about something and both my Mom and Dad told me off. My brother snubbed me and my sister (I don't have a sister) told me to go kill myself. In the dream, I left the family and hopped on a train by myself. It was a pretty disturbing dream. I'm not sure what it's trying to tell me.
