I believe that's all the events until May. For booking either me or Adobo Street Connection, hit us up at ASC.EventsTeam@gmail.com! I also got an email from producer in Vienna, Austria. Unfortunately, half of the message is on full blown tagalog. So I'm having my dad translate what I couldn't decode.
Ok, done with self promotion. I got an early birthday gift from my girlfriend, Cyndy. She got me something from my birthday list which was a 2GB Flip HD! No joke, I was super stoked when she gave it to me. Thanks beb! She does a lot for me and I hope she know I appreciate everything she's done for me. I honestly have nothing planned for my birthday except a dinner with a bunch of my friends in San Francisco after the show on the 26th. Receiving a gift like that seriously made my day. Also, to hear that she went out to talk to my friends about getting another gift was just extremely overwhelming. Seriously, she's an awesome girlfriend.
The other day I waited outside of her classroom with a picnic. It was a nice sunny day, so I thought I'd surprise her. Last time she got out of class a bit early, so I thought I didn't have enough time to make food. So what I did was stop by McDonalds to grab lunch and on the way I bought some seaweed. We both LOVE seaweed. You should see us during road trips. Once I got that, I brought out a blanket and waited outside her class. It ended up that she didn't get out of class the same time last week. :-P So I was waiting outside for about an extra 45 minutes. Honestly, the weather was so nice that I didn't mind the waiting at all. Once she got out, it was nice to see a smile on her face when she saw me waiting for her with a picnic.
Also, within the last week I was lucky enough to have a photo shoot with my great friend Tim Nusog. I recently told him that I needed to take pictures for my website that I'm making for my multimedia class. He text me saying that one of his clients canceled and he's open to do a spontaneous photo shoot with me. I quickly agreed and we hooked up the following day. I highly recommend him for any future shoots. http://timnusog.tumblr.com/
As some of you may noticed, I chopped off most of my hair!!! I've never really had it this short since that accident at the barber shop when I was in 1st grade. This is all new to me and yes.. my head is very cold. I honestly wanted to try something new and extreme. I'm getting use to it and when I wear the my military dog tags, I just feel like working out. I consider the change motivational.
During the week my girlfriend was at her hometown in SoCal, we had a bet for me to lose 5lbs until she gets back. I couldn't have gotten any more motivational then a bet with the girlfriend. So I hit the gym for every day she was gone. I was hard at first, but it slowly got easier. I did the workouts I use to do when I was in track & field and a few weight loss methods from when I was in wrestling. All in all, I lost 6 lbs while she was gone and I won the bet. I went from 179.6 lbs to 173.4 lbs! A very accurate weight scale if you ask me.
A lot has happened over the pass few weeks that I'm very grateful for having happened. Especially the love and support of my family, girlfriend, and friends. I'm currently sending in applications to news networks in hopes of finding a job in that field and hopefully not interning for 2 years like my friends told me to be aware of. I'm happy to have also been given the opportunity to have so many shows/events coming up and even having an hour co-hosting with DJ DEEstruktion on the local college radio station. Thanks again everyone! Especially my mom, dad, and Cyndy. They're a major backbone to my skeleton I call life. Hmm... that phrase sounded better in my head.
