FUCK YOU HATERS. I’M PUMPED.

FUCK YOU HATERS. I’M PUMPED.

Basically how I feel at night before I sleep and I’m looking at people’s social media pages.

My Tumblr just turned 3 today. Good time to bring it back from the dead.

RIP Death Grips

I have a lot to say about the death of one of my favorite groups. Look forward to that soon.

Hey everyone. Remember me? It’s time I bring my Tumblr back from the dead.It’s insane to think that it’s almost been a year since I last posted in here and so much has changed (for good and bad) in that time frame. One of the main reasons I never felt like updated this thing was due to the fact I had a job I felt completely miserable at. I was always anxiety ridden and completely unhappy. Take today for example…there’s no way I’d be able to relax knowing that I would’ve had to go back in tomorrow. That’s no way for someone to live their life. Fuck that place and fuck my piece of shit old boss.Since leaving there in November of last year, I work now at a well established and popular Q&A website company based out of St. Louis. It feels great to be working somewhere that doesn’t fill my days up with such intense panic. I’m comfortable but not un-motivated uncomfortable. I work in the SEO and content team.Around that time, Clara and I got serious as well and started “dating.” I use quotes because as everyone totally knows…we were completely dating all last year too but she didn’t want to put a title on it for some reason. Flakey move right? Well. How about moving in with someone in February and then telling that person “i’m not ready for a relationship.” That sounds even more flakey right? Welp. That’s what happened. Clara and I got a place in Dogtown, a nice 10 minute drive to work mind you, and now our relationship is over since she’s just not happy with herself apparently and wants to be alone. This still hasn’t changed how she acts around me (ala last year) but either way, it doesn’t matter as I’ll be moving back to my parents in the next two weeks or so. I don’t plan on staying there long, just enough to get some money saved and then find my own place. I know I sound like I’m shit talking and while I’m disappointed and aggravated at  her decision here…I’m surprisingly taking this extremely well. She’ll always be one of my best friends regardless if her decision making only makes sense to her. Maybe I’m just excited about not having to answer to someone all the time again….or maybe it’s because at 26 with a great salary based job, I’m far too busy now to have time to sit around and mope. Besides, as shown by last night…I might have my hand’s full lately."Being busy" still hasn’t changed how I feel about my biggest passion though….music. 2014 has been an insane year for concerts and I feel bad that I haven’t kept up with my Tumblr enough to post pictures and reviews. Unlike Facebook or Twitter, I used to use this thing a lot to discuss and rant about the music I was digging at the time. As in 2011 and last year, I will also be going to the Pitchfork Music Festival next month again with Dan and his girlfriend Kate. Death Grips, Sun Kil Moon, Neutral Milk Hotel, Earl Sweatshirt, Real Estate, Cloud Nothings, Giorgio Modorer, Danny Brown, the Haxan Cloax, Deafheaven, Kendrick Lamar….lots of good stuff to check out.Speaking of Deafheaven, they were also one of the best shows I’ve seen this year. 2014 has been a great year for live music for me as well as finally being able to see Jandek was an odd experience and the Flaming Lips, Swans, Disclosure, Mark McGuire & Oneohthrix Point Never have all been incredible shows too.Well…that felt good to write again. Here’s hoping that I can continue to do the same on a regular basis.

Going away for awhile…

I’m officially putting my Tumblr on hiatus for the time being. I never have the motivation to post anything anymore and I really need to get my life back on track like learning to adapt to the stress my new job gives me or find a new job….among other things.

You can see from my post count, as well, it’s been dwindling with each month since May. Oh well.

I actually plan on creating a site that posts music and concerts reviews and blog from there. I may come back and post a link to that here.

Until then, thanks Tumblr for the fun moments I had with you for two years. Take care followers, I’ll see ya around.
