While you were sleeping I made this video.
Not sure where I got the energy to work so late, but here I am, awake at 3am typing my little heart out.Tweet this!
My floor seat for the Boise State game. Two things I love in one night: exercise and college football. Now if Gatorade came out with a beer I’d be all set.
Btw, I really feel for B State. USC gets screwed by their strength of schedule all the time. These last couple seasons they screwed themselves, but I’m trying to stay positive here. We beat Hawaii. Woot.Tweet this!
A few notes to bring you up to speed on me, MTM, and other stuff:
— My visit to LA is about to come to an end. I’ve loved every minute of it, but I’ll be honest, I’m glad I no longer live here. It’s a vibrant city and a perfect place for some people, but it ain’t me babe, at least not anymore. I’m more mellow now. And I could really care less about the entertainment industry. Well, I shouldn’t say that…I don’t care about celebrities and all of their drama, moreso now than ever.
— MTM is a struggle. I can’t seem to find a designer that understands my vision. I’d appreciate your feedback on the latest iteration because I’m too far into this project to see clearly.
— Consulting work is going well and I’m considering taking on another client.
— My back is absolutely killing me.
— Adrien and I are heading back to Mexico asap because our 4th of July trip was canceled. And heaven forbid I stay in Houston too long ;)
— The idea of re-launching Moe really gets me excited. But there is no way I’m doing it without a partner.
— My agent suggested I post more videos. Seconds later he showed me the most popular video on YouTube. Do you know what that is? The Annoying Orange! How F-ing Annoying is it that a loud-mouth orange spouting stupid jokes gets 24 million views in a couple days. Unpack that fact on several different levels. No, really think about it. Kinda disgusting if you ask me.
— The iPad is so close to being the perfect mobile computer it’s frustrating.Tweet this!
We never talk about that.
No makeup – we dare each other to do that all the time (come on, you know it’s scary if you can’t wear sunnies all day or can use the pool/beach as an excuse).
But doesn’t it feel good to not worry about your hair, let it dry on its own, and just throw it back in a rubber band? No one cares.
I’m not talking to you girls who just have naturally gorgeous hair. This is for all my feather-haired, wavy-in-a-bad-way, random cow lick, brittle dry, unmanageable haired girls out there.
Running my hands through my soft, barely there fo right now :)
And so begins another late night for me.Tweet this!
I’ve been going to church every Sunday recently for several reasons.* One thing I really appreciate is the Pastor’s way of applying the scripture to everyday life and making it practical instead of preaching some holier-than-thou propaganda. Here’s how I see it: the lessons of the Bible are basic tenets we should live by to be good people. For example, I’ll use a passage from Chris’ sermon today:
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” — Galatians 5:22
Pretty straightforward. This was the intro to his main message which focused on the beginning of Galatians 6 – we should help carry each other’s burdens without judgement because we too make mistakes and struggle all the time.
So just by listening, a person (whether faithful or not) can renew their sense of virtue as a human. If you are a believer, it’s a double win for you. Your heart is filled with positive energy, you have a righteous path to follow, AND the grace of God.
It’s just nice to be in a place where every. single. person. WANTS to be there, hear a lesson that will refresh their senses, and spread good will to other people, you know? Where else does this happen? I’ll tell you this much, it wasn’t in the churches I grew up in. But that’s another story.
