BUENO POWER VLOG #33 - VINYL, EATS & DEPARTURES

Monday, November 20, 2017



This coming week I'll be returning to my old stomping grounds. Yes yes! I'm heading back to Cali for vacation and will be hanging out with friends and family. Not gonna lie... I'm a bit nervous about this whole thing, but hey... I need to reattach some of the connections I've lost for years. And hopefully I'll be able to gain some of that back.

INSTANT PORTRAIT #38

Scan-161229-0013

Middletown, Ct / 2016

This was at that same filipino function I went to last year. I remember this kid being a North Carolina resident, but was from the Philippines. He was visiting his family for the week from what I remember, but yeah. The kid was totally smart and had things going for him. Kinda jealous to tell you the truth.

So far things haven't been as bad. I was, for the most part, assuming that I'd be down and out dealing with things the wrong way. But I'm out here trying to make positive choices rather than kill myself with bullshit. I can't say that it's all easy-peazy, but I'm doing the best I can to figure it out one step at a time. I'm so used to rushing into things and feeling burnt out on it later on. I really don't know how to groove anymore and that's what I'm trying to do again. I shouldn't be in a rush.

However, routine has been a big thing for me. I've been wanting to fall into routines that help me set my mind straight. Not only that I'm trying to get my finance straight as well. Not buying unnecessary shit (which I don't really do anyway) and having fun with money when it's appropriate. I can't say "fuck it" anymore because I'm trying to be a fucking adult in 2017. I don't even know how to be an adult. It's dumb, but whatever.

But overall I'm trying to make better choices and trying to see a brighter future of 2018. I know things are going to be rough, but I have to be prepared and I have to be ready for whatever comes my way.
